Two women. One, strapped in atop 4.4 million pounds of fuel combusting below. One, flying alone in an open cockpit plane across country, her only method of navigation a map pinned to her pants leg.
When I was growing up, I didn’t want to be an astronaut; I wanted to be Sally Ride. That’s the…
We are the Winos. What started as a mutual clink of the virtual glasses each Wednesday between strangers in a little corner of the internet has grown into something so much more. I can’t begin to explain what this group of women mean to me. It is this deep reverence and appreciation for those that have forged new paths in the world that make me love these women.
Two extraordinary women are being celebrated this week. In that spirit, I celebrate the Winos as well. For your compassion, your intelligence, your creativity, your complete badassery.
Cheers to you all this Wino Wednesday and to all of the women who work so fucking hard everyday to create and celebrate equality.
Whoa! I don’t know if these are the meds talking, Ness, but it’s raining on my face. I love you ladies too. And not for nothing, but I put eyeliner on today and this post has made me cry twice. Quit it!
Ditto on everything right down to the smeared eyeliner. I love you guys.
At first, that was our thought, too. In this unlikely recipe—a favorite of First Lady Lou Henry Hoover’s—ripe tomatoes are peeled and cored, sprinkled with sugar, dotted with butter, and baked until soft and sweet, with a concentrated flavor. We were skeptical, too—until we took a bite.
I believe this is the part where the kids say all my creyes. Am I using that right? Met some really fun people in line though and I’m regrouping by waiting for little doodle to arrive so that we can do some damage in the Lego booth.
Slept in. Let’s forget that means I slept until 7:30 - it was still sleeping in.
Witnessed The House procuring weaponry. I love these two so much! LadyOfTheHouse now has a big, long gun (not a euphemism).
Got a tribble. A TRIBBLE, people!!! It actually shakes. It’s awesome. Only got one because, as Dr. Baffled pointed out, it should multiply to several hundred by the morning.
Saw a really awesome panel about Ray Bradbury with Dr. Baffled, TLOTH, and JennHoney (so nice to meet you!). Also found myself tearing up in said panel. Margaret Atwood kicked some serious ass. She’s fantastic.
Randomly won a drawing to participate in a table read of a Chuck episode on stage. The Chuck cast made surprise appearances and I got to sit next to Jayne Adam Baldwin. I was a big Chuck fan, (and Firefly fan, natch) and this was just sooooo fun. I got to read Sarah’s part in episode 2.11 Chuck vs. Santa Claus.
Had dinner at The Salt Box with the lovely chase-the-waves and some other friends and had ALL THE MEAT. It was amazing food and I am stuffed. I had to be rolled back to the hotel.
Overall, it was a fantastic day. I have the feeling I’m going to pass out pretty soon but it’s a good thing cause that Firefly line is gonna get long early.
