I´m not gonna answer that, I´m not!
She freezes as she reads the anon message.
Are they right? Is she too old?
She had known this day would ultimately come, known that one day, she would no longer be allowed to enjoy the things around her, or use the internet anymore other than to send work emails, but she had hoped that day was still far off.
True, she did have a child. Perhaps that should have been her first clue. After all, becoming a mother goes hand-in-hand with dedicating your life to clipping coupons and driving carpools. And with all of that, who has time to enjoy good acting, or a wonderful story-line, or art?
She looks down at her hands sadly. The anon is right. She is now an “old peep”. She should be ashamed of herself.
She sheds one single tear and shuts off her computer. She then unplugs it and carries it to the trash. Her place is no longer among young persons. Her child is asleep upstairs for the night. The house is quiet and dark. She grabs her child’s purple crayola marker and writes “old peep” across her forehead, then moves to her living room, turns the tv on, and changes the channel to the news.
Yes. This is where she belongs now. Tomorrow she will make sure to throw away all of her young person clothes and buy ugly beige sweaters and ruffled white blouses. She will give away her pathetic collection of fantasy books the local library, and throw away the autographed photo she got from her favorite actor two years ago. These are not things she is allowed to have anymore.
She begins her life as an old peep, sitting in the dark, watching the news, thinking about taxes and diapers, grateful to the anon who pointed out the error of her ways.
I love you
Another old peep
If I get pregnant, will my tumblr license be revoked?
"Old peeps should leave tumblr!" …Yeah, well, clueless dingbat whippersnapper anon babybloggers shouldn’t be allowed to post sillybugger ill-thought-out alleged opinions, either, but where’d be the fun for the rest of us then? :)
I also loved the teenager on livejournal years ago that said that I should be ashamed to be goth at my age.
There are not enough middle fingers in the whole world kiddo.

Since this doesn’t have a source listed, I wanted to point out this is done by Erika Moen, a comic artist who everyone should be following. :)
It boggles the mind, what the Republicans are doing right now. I hope Obama stands firm. I hope that people see what the Republican shutdown does and vilifies them.
This will seem like an overly obvious question, but in the American tradition, how does a bill become a law? I mean, in the “Schoolhouse Rock” model? Anyone familiar with Civics 101 knows the answer: a lawmaker has an idea, introduces a bill, and starts the legislative process. There are hearings, committee votes, and floor votes. A successful bill will go to other chamber, and ultimately, to the White House for presidential consideration.
The legislative process is difficult, frustrating, and time consuming. It’s filled with pitfalls and choke points. There’s arm-twisting and horse-trading. For a bill to become law takes patience and a willingness to compromise.
But this is a feature, not a bug. The process is designed to be hard. It’s supposed to be this way.
It’s become quite clear, however, that this is a process Republicans no longer have any use for. It’s tiresome and fails to offer the results they prefer, so GOP lawmakers have decided to circumvent it altogether — why follow the American model when extortion is so much more efficient?
Take another look at the ransom note House Republicans put together this week. It is, in effect, the policy agenda the nation would see if Democrats hadn’t won the 2012 elections. GOP leaders are, in effect, asking Democrats to adopt the Romney/Ryan platform, election results be damned.
- The majority of Americans have repeatedly rejected the politics and the policies of the Republican party.
- If not for massive gerrymandering, the Democrats would have control of all three branches of government.
- The Republicans have consistently brought their ideas to the people, and the people have consistently rejected them.
In a sane world, this would push the Republicans to develop policies that are more likely to win support from the American people. What we are seeing from them, instead, is crisis-to-crisis governing by hostage-taking, and if President Obama negotiates with the House GOP at all over these current manufactured crises, it will mean the end of constitutional structure of our government.
Here’s one for the My Little Pony fans who REALLY like Pony Play. p.s. this is not the kind of toy for kids ;-) #nsfw
A WORLD WHERE THERE ARE OCTOBERS
October was a beautiful month at Green Gables, when the birches in the hollow turned as golden as sunshine and the maples behind the orchard were royal crimson and the wild cherry trees along the lane put on the loveliest shades of dark red and bronzy green, while the fields sunned themselves in aftermaths.
Anne reveled in the world of color about her.
"Oh, Marilla," she exclaimed one Saturday morning, coming dancing in with her arms full of gorgeous boughs" ‘I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it? Look at these maple branches. Don’t they give you a thrill—several thrills? I’m going to decorate my room with them."
An armload of maple boughs and a swirl of autumn leaves.
