Being a Halloween baby, I get a little more into the holiday than is probably healthy. Over the course of the last several years, I’ve taken to carving out likenesses of close family members into pumpkins. To keep things interesting I kinda sorta pretend I’m doing it in the order that I believe said family members are going to die. Yeah, my family has a thing for the dark humor. Want to learn how to transfer your own family’s likenesses onto a pumpkin? Here’s how to do it, step by step.
Important Halloween Information.

A comma splice is a grammar error that is created by joining two independent clauses (complete sentences) with a comma. It is one of the most common grammar mistakes; if you pay attention, you’ll encounter dozens of them each day.
Since we have two complete sentences, we would…

well, it all started when a reviewer on goodreads gave kathleen hale a one-star review on her book with completely legit and well-articulated reasons. there was absolutely nothing petty in the review, let alone anything personal towards hale. regardless, hale was so enraged by this review that she decided to stalk the reviewer through social media; call their place of work several times pretending to be a census worker in order to gather more information about their life; get their address from her publisher under the false pretense of mailing them arcs for reviews (or something like that?); and use that address to show up at their doorstep. her reason for doing all of this was that she felt she was being “catfished” by the reviewer because they were using a pseudonym on goodreads, which is something that’s pretty standard for safety reasons. all hale did was prove that pen names are completely necessary, and that no one in the book blogging community is safe to post open, honest reviews.
This is beyond creepy.
this isn’t even the first time she’s done something like this. hale has a blog entry on her website detailing the story of how she once stalked a girl who was molested by hale’s mother and poured peroxide on her head.

I MUST SPREAD THE WORD TO MY FOLLOWERS

We’re the diamonds, rising up out the dust (listen)
because instead of teaching boys not to drug girls and rape girls we teach girls to always be on our edge and take all these precautions to ensure our own safety
because girls still get raped even if we did every single thing we were told
because “she was wearing a short skirt and tight crop top” is a good enough reason to rape a girl
because girls still get raped even when they’re wearing a burqa
because people will make up all kinds of excuses to blame the rape victim instead of the rapist
because women cannot speak out on being sexually abused by a man without facing harassment instead of sympathy
because girls can’t be out at night on their own without fearing for their lives
because a man’s biggest fear when interacting with a woman is being rejected whereas a woman’s biggest fear is being raped and/or murdered
because women cannot embrace their own sexuality without being called sluts and whores
because those photos of Nick Jonas half naked grabbing his junk were acceptable and sexy but Nicki Minaj posing in a bikini is inappropriate and slutty
because in England one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute
because in South Africa one in four girls will be raped in their lifetime
because one average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or ex male partner
because women feel the need to apologise to men for not wanting to sit with them, talk to them, dance with them. they feel the need to apologise for saying “no”
because a “no” coming out of a woman’s mouth is taken as “try harder” by men
because “don’t be such a girl” is taken as an insult whereas “you’re the man” is taken as a compliment
because Ke$ha is constantly portrayed as a stupid slut just because she likes to sing about partying but never has anyone called a male artist stupid for singing about partying
because when Taylor Swift sings about wanting to get back together with her ex or missing her ex she is “crazy” and “obsessed” but when Robin Thicke released the song “Get Her Back” along with a video of a woman drowning, featuring real texts between him and his ex-wife, him pointing his fingers like a gun and raised to his head, and ending with a figure walking off into the distance with the words: “This is just the beginning”, all of which are disturbing and clearly manipulative and emotionally abusive actions but Robin Thicke, instead of being called a lunatic, is praised for being a “vulnerable” and “sensitive” man
because “boys will be boys” is a phrase constantly used invalidate girls speaking out on being harassed by boys
because men fetishising women of colour is supposed to be taken as a compliment
because men are more worried about “saving the tatas” instead of the lives of women fighting breast cancer
because malala yousafzai was shot in the head for trying to go to school
because men threatened to bomb a college because a woman tried to give a feminist presentation
because no matter how many reasons I give there will be men who will brush aside what I say and tell me I’m overreacting because I am a girl
"because no matter how many reasons I give there will be men who will brush aside what I say and tell me I’m overreacting because I am a girl"
this is literally the greatest subtitling job that has ever been done. someone learned how to speak cat.

The most important witchy essential?
well dollskill was just taken off my list of all time favorite stores….
that email is almost worse than the headdress
um i’m native American
I find that offensive. I don’t normally get too uptight but
the point of a war bonnet/headdress is not to “get all the boys looking your way” or whatever, but it’s a sign of honor; every single feather, it’s position, it’s dye job, it’s notches; they each represent a deed done by the warrior.
My great great great great great great GREAT grandfather had a full, to-the-floor war bonnet, because he was a greatly respected chief and warrior and negotiator. he was straight up badass. and that’s THE POINT OF THE HEADDRESS OKAY
not only is this completely unrealistically designed and completely inaccurate but it spits in the face of the purpose of the war bonnet and it’s position of high rank and honor.
And the email is ridiculous beyond even the site’s description of the item.
Fuck you, DollsKill.
Yes i’m native American, and that’s badass, but this is not ”to honor mhy background” or to “give me representation”.
calling you racist is NOT RIDICULOUS because you ARE.
Dolls kill has a history of being racist, and also sending out response e-mails like they are your old ass aunt trying hella hard to stay relevant and hip and it just comes off desperate and lost
Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family
Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?
#do you remember when harry asked for food in fourth year#because the poor kid wouldnt survive on the durselys new diet?#i bet you anything he only asked#’if you have just some leftovers or scraps you could give me i would appreciate it’#but molly weasley was like HELL NO#and baked him like several pies#molly weasley doesnt fuck around with her children#even if she didnt give birth to them#molly weasley for life
Molly Weasley is the best mom anyone could have.
