This film, “When Marnie Was There”, is definitely one of my new favorite Ghibli films, and not just because my song is in it. Don’t get me wrong…. I love ALL Ghibli movies, but this one is in the tops. It truly is a film about love. Not the romantic kind. But the pure kind, that we are all born with.

The best part about having a chronic illness is getting to feel guilty about being sick all the time. Two thumbs up.
Today, I bought this book (for my sister, lets clarify that now ‘cause the only way I’m going anywhere near sperm is if I fall into a vat of it):

It’s like it was written by Lemony Snicket!

And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.

Wait a minute…
I have been laughing at this for hours now…
So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven.
Good job Internet.
Thank you for this!
Finally a rebloggable version of this idiotic post.
