WHERE HAVE YOU BITCHES BEEN LIVING THE PAST TWO AND A HALF MONTHS
So thankful for the baby bump featured in this photo and the amazing woman who took this pic while prepping for the festivities. I hope everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving!
The McMahon family needs to get away from me ASAP…
So I missed my connection in Minneapolis by 3 minutes and am now stuck here overnight and I just want to get home to my family and I hate airports and etc., and I was starting to feel pretty sorry for myself when I noticed the airport bookstore had my books. So I went in, signed them. and chatted with the bookseller there, who was lovely and funny and sympathetic. Obviously it was nice to see the books, but it was the pleasant conversation with a stranger that really pulled me out of myself, and as a result, a long night became bearable. So tonight I give thanks for kind strangers, and hope that I can be one each time the opportunity arises.
I LOOKED UP ALL THE BOOKSTORES IN THE MPLS AIRPORT. MISSION SHALL COMMENCE IN TWO WEEKS.

Ms. Lambert, though, is sensitive about the criticisms of “Same Love”: that Macklemore was, in essence, straight-splaining, hogging the platform to talk about oppression through the lens of, and by virtue of, his own privilege.
“I heard the track go through some changes — where he was originally going to do this from a 13-year-old gay boy’s perspective, to edit himself and say ‘No, no, this is not the way to do it,’” she said. “He’s so aware of his privilege.”
It didn’t help, though, that when she went onstage with the duo to accept the prize at the Video Music Awards for best video with a social message, Ms. Lambert didn’t speak. “A part of me kind of retreated,” she acknowledged.
This was posted on instagram yesterday, but I think it deserves to go around. This is Andrew at USC Norris Hospital presenting a check to Dr. Stuart Siegel in support of the first AYA Fellowship in the country.
This is one of many reasons why I adore the Dear Jack Foundation. Unlike so many disease and cancer-related charities (*coughSusanGKomencough*), DJF gives the money they raise to very specific programs that are pushing groundbreaking research and actually making a difference in the lives of young adults with cancer. Rather than just focusing on raising “awareness,” they focus on tangible issues facing young adults, like having music during treatment (Matt’s Mixed Tape Program) and affording college (the Cancer For College scholarship).
TL;DR: Now that we’re coming up on the holiday season, rather than donating to the Salvation Army or some shit you should donate to DJF.
