So, I’m back online. Hello Tumblr, enjoy these assorted images of my new flat in various states of disarray. The last picture wasn’t taken in my flat, that’s Flush, I bought them on Ebay and I’m still awaiting their arrival. You can see Dudley Castle from my window. I’ve not killed any of my plants yet. I’m doing pretty well I think, aside from my complete inability to commit to decorating the place, the hallway is filled with paint cans and cloths and now I’m worried the grey I’ve chosen for the living room is too dark and I won’t be able to get the right kind of light fittings for the bathroom so I can fill it with plants. Still, how is everybody?

I think I look like a red-faced, big-nosed gypsy witch when I’m a brunette but my Mother loves it and it goes with my new green top hat and frock coat so I’m happy. “Back to the Gypsy that I was”. You can’t see but I also had the other side of my nose pierced but the guy didn’t tell me until after he did it that they only had gold studs, so anyway that makes ten piercings now. Time for a tattoo I think.

Oh God yes, since I was a teen! I’ve read all of her novels, besides MaddAddam because After the Flood really disappointed me. In order of awesomeness, my favourite novels: Life Before Man, The Edible Woman, Cat’s Eye, Bodily Harm, Lady Oracle. You? x

“In 1921, early suffragettes often donned a bathing suit and ate pizza in large groups to annoy men…it was a custom at the time.”

TIME TO REVIVE A CUSTOM


REVIVE! REVIVE!!!

Yeah. No. "“July 31, 1921. Washington, D.C. ‘Pie eating contest at Tidal Basin bathing beach.’”While the original Tumblr posting got one count right, this photo was taken in 1921, there are several unfortunate inaccuracies and anachronisms in the post.First, it’s not pizza, it’s pie. Arguably a finite distinction (you might call it “pizza pie” after all), but considering the historical context of the photo, pizza just doesn’t seem likely. The first pizza restaurant opened in the U.S. in 1905, but it wasn’t until the the early 1930s that pizza became a popular food in the American diet. Like all things, it took a while to catch on. While the women in this photograph could have been familiar with pizza, it would have take several decades more before “pizza parties” were a normative thing. Pie, on the other hand, was quite well established.Secondly, the picture was taken at the Tidal Basin bathing beach in D.C. This means that not only would there not have been a scandal or any impropriety in these women wearing their bathing suits (which look more like modern sun dresses) in a designated bathing area, but there were paid decency police officials who were tasked with making sure that suit skirts were at an appropriate length.Finally, even if this picture caption were entirely true, in no way would any suffragette in 1921 be considered “early” as the American Women’s Suffrage movement began over a decade earlier and women officially gained the right to vote with the 19th Amendment in 1920, a year before this photo was taken. If anything, these suffragettes are fashionably late to the party.”

No seriously I’m both horrified and heartbroken, good thing that was the season finale because I’m gonna stay mad as fuck at this show all the way through until season 3.

I threw a Facebook fit, messaging all of the fans I knew. It was just, so.. :O

I still can’t reblog anything to do with that episode. My reaction is still the same level of shock, lol.

I know! When you think back it makes sense, it’s consistent, it wasn’t a random shock end, but at the same time as it was unfolding, I did not see any of that coming, it felt so good. Best series ending.
