imagine that "what" in the title is said scooby-doo-style (amie blanco style is better, but that's beside the point). i LOVE this wallpaper from frankie magazine and all the others. GO GET IT!!! i'm always finding new images for wallpaper, so this is dreamy.
thanks penny or pugly or both.

The more I get into this Philosophy-world and learn about Academia, the more sensitive I'm becoming to gender politics. But I guess I'll never have to go through anything like this.
These photos are from this NYTimes article about this law that just passed (a few details below).
The difference between the women in each of these photos is, the top photo shows women supporting the law while the bottom photo shows women protesting it. Women on both sides.
Apparently, the women protesting the law were met with supporters who screamed back at them, "Whores!" Can you imagine?
"The law, approved by both houses of Parliament and signed by President Hamid Karzai, applies to the Shiite minority only. Women here and governments and rights groups abroad have protested three parts of the law especially.One provision makes it illegal for a woman to resist her husband’s sexual advances. A second provision requires a husband’s permission for a woman to work outside the home or go to school. And a third makes it illegal for a woman to refuse to “make herself up” or “dress up” if that is what her husband wants."

You know how he's always reading the newspaper. I love the newspaper. Which is why this is a terrible time for my school to be offering free copies of the New York Times, Monday-Friday. Forget it, I'm going to get nothing done. This is almost as bad as dieting-the kind of willpower I'm going to have to exercise in these last weeks of the semester.
I need a kooky wife to make my meals and a job singing in a nightclub so I can have time to read the paper. (and maybe watch more "I Love Lucy." I've never seen this one with fairy Lucy.)

I wrote this long ol' post about Yosemite, sort of a let-me-count-the-ways this trip went wrong. Then I had a few minutes out in the sun just now, and I apologize if anyone read it because I do like the people I went with. It just wasn't planned well. Why go into detail? Snore. So, for the official record, Yosemite is, as everyone says, beautiful, DO THE UPPER YOSEMITE FALLS HIKE, it's soooo cool, but-that said-I didn't have the greatest time in Yosemite. I should've stayed home. These photos are of Mirror Lake, top, and the trail to ML (a la pugly feet with a twist).

So you know my inexplicable love for genie pants, and the sad faded pair I continue to wear? Well I was hoping that I might find a cheap replacement pair but haven't had any luck. I came across these at Target, and at first I was beside myself, giddy because they were even called "Genie Pants." Sadly they are poser genie pants-- the crotch doesn't hang embarrassingly low--pretending that a tapered leg is going to cut it. Real genie pants are like the obnoxious purple ones this lady is wearing (indeed, hers may be part of a unitard, which is just plain showing off) above.

(the masked men or burka'd women, whatever, maybe worse if they're burka'd women, represent either my menacing future after graduation or, more specifically, the men who get to decide my future after graduation)
someone give me happy thoughts, like, when does Where the Wild Things Are come out? oot, just checked looks like October, ugh. Trailer suggests it may rival Neverending Story, I don't know if it could, but I'm just sayin they're throwing words like "hope" and "adventure" around a bunch of giant muppets, and you know what that does to a girl like me. Dunzo.
