Wedding Countdown Ticker

0 notes

The fiance and I had a mini engagement photo session today. Due to limited finances between the wedding, children, and the general cost of living, a close friend of ours offered to take photographs for us. It was really nice, and the photos are incredible. I just wish we had gotten to do all that we wanted to in park. Not to mention that the dam did not offer the proper vantage points and really limited what we could and couldnt do. I really wanted to have shots of us by the abandoned railroad tracks that are much farther in the woods, but that’ll be another day =/

However, I did spend 3 hours trecking through the woods in combat boots (and made my days goal of 10000 steps!) - I am fucking exhausted.

I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’ 

You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.

KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.

I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?

If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.

The Hobbit: AUJ filmmakers’ commentary:

Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens share some interesting facts about the movie

  • In case some didn’t know, the dwarf next to Thorin is Peter Jackson
  • The claw in Frodo’s hands ended up being too small to be Smaug’s (but we can still pretend it is)
  • The part about Glamdring not glowing was also because it didn’t glow in LOTR

Part 1/_ of the Mirkwood Elves

(This is stupid but here it is) Having observed Tauriel and Kili, Thranduil’s overall dislike of Dwarves manifests its way into their conversation and he unexpectedly gives Legolas an education of what he does and does not find rude.
