For Your (Weekend) Consideration
To say I'm heartbroken about how the election turned out is an understatement. I truly believed that we were better, smarter, more tolerant, more empathetic and less scared, weak, and hateful than Trump thought us to be. Although I could write a scathing rant about how terrible and bleak things feel right now (and they do), I want to focus on the good that we can do. Here is a list of organizations that support women, children, LBGTQ communities, minorities, immigrants, the planet, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and many other things that may be in danger because of Republican control. Please consider donating - any amount helps.
We will get through this, together. Love still trumps hate.

Mermaids is one of my favorite movies from childhood. Glad I'm not alone!
Cults! French aristocracy! Mission: Impossible style unmaskings! This story has it all! Seriously though, this is bonkers.
