After hearing the same question over and over from friends and family — “Why aren’t you married yet?” — art director Suzanne Heintz got tired of it and set out to do something about it. She got herself a little family…of mannequins.
Over the course of 14 years and 10,000 miles of travel, she took her fake family everywhere and took all kinds of “family” pictures….
I loved the comment of Laura:
She’s underlining the fact that for many people, a family seems to be little better than a trophy or badge to prove that someone has succeeded at fulfilling society’s expectations of them. How many families look great in photographs but are actually empty inside? The point is not to condemn family life, but to refuse to accept that a good life is simply one that looks good to other people.
“Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.”Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
All lost in a book. Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.
All the babies reading on the DC Metro.
Warms my heart.
Colorblocking will forever be my favorite trend.
OOTD details are on le blahg
why isn’t there a STRAIGHT pride parade?? why isn’t there WHITE history month? why isn’t there an international MEN’S day!? why isn’t there a hospital for WELL people?? why isn’t there a soup kitchen for RICH people??!?
LOL @ really thin girls who get ass implants and fake titties and then make fun of big girls.
you realize, you think you want to be skinny but….you want that fat, lil mama.
YOU WANT THAT FAT.
There is this one girl at work who always makes these comments about my body. But they are somehow really awesome. When I started at this job, I had just lost 60lbs and then after starting, I lost another 20 or so.
After about a year and a half, I gained about 30lbs back of the 80+ that I had lost, whatever. No big deal. But to a lot of people, it was a big deal. Lots of people noticed that I gained weight, preferred me smaller, and let me know. Bleck. Gross. Cue a whole lot of feeling bad for short periods of time.
But anyways, this one particular girl always makes these little comments about my new, curvier, fatter bod like…..”oh, you do squats? is that how you changed your entire body shape? don’t lie. you know when you started here you had a different body shape.”
"girl. when you started here, didn’t we have the same butt? what happened? how did you get your butt like that?"
hahaha. in a sea of negative comments about my “weight gain,” she really makes me feel like SOME other people see me the way I see myself.
I’ve told her multiple times, yeah… some squats but also, gaining 30lbs.
Anyways, I like that.
Me considering what I want to do with my life is the exact same process as me figuring out what I want for dinner.

People who can no longer care for THEIR OWN DOG and put them up on Craigslist talking ‘bout, “Ohhh, she’s the best dog ever. super calm, sweet, great with kids and other dogs, loves cats, does laundry, but i just can’t take care of her anymore. I don’t have the time and it’s not fair to her. $300 rehoming fee includes crate, shots, whatever dog food I have left, bowls, water, her FAV toys, and her collar. good homes only.”
Bitch, sit the fuck down. She’s the best dog ever…so fucking own up to the choice you made and MAKE TIME FOR HER. Like, wtf? So if this was a child you would just be like, “ohhh man, I just COULDN’T POSSIBLY” and then give your 2 year old up for adoption? No. You’re an asshole. And really? You want someone to PAY YOU to take your grown ass, most likely untrained ass dog? Kill yourself. $300 dollars is an exaggeration but you should be PRAISING whoever has the courage to come in and clean up your mess not fucking CHARGING THEM!!! Consider the money you spent on a dog you are CHOOSING to give up and god damn LESSON LEARNED. Omg.
Dogs and cats are not FUCKING TOYS, people. I was 19 when I got Buster and I knew then that I was making a decision to NEVER make a choice that didn’t include him, no matter how appealing it may sound. Like, “hey lil homie! i know i ripped you from your mom or whatever and made you totally dependent on me for love, food, affection, and pretty much everything else but…this apartment is TOTALLY cute and they don’t allow cats. but it’s cool, i’m gonna charge a complete stranger like $60 to give a place to live…..hope he doesn’t feed you to a snake or something!”
If you get a pet, they should always have food in their bowl…even if
you have to go hungry. If you get a pet, you should always be there to
comfort them. If you get a pet, they should always have a place to
sleep….even if ya’ll are homeless…be fucking homeless together.
Like, you are married to your pets. Your pets are your fucking children.
Stop treating them like toys. You’re breaking their hearts.
