I want to design an app.

I had a great idea for an app last night but I am not a programmer so I need some assistance.

iPhone Apps










Here’s the (admittedly white-girl-problems sounding) foundation of my idea. The seedling if you will. I recently bought eyeliner and I don’t like it.

I wish to ensure this doesn’t happen again, or at the very least I don’t waste another eight bucks on the exact eyeliner I already bought because I forget whatever weird name Maybeline gave to it. So my idea for an app is called Like/Dislike and you’d be able to scan barcodes, or browse for products or manually type in names and add it to your profile as a like or dislike. That way when you go to the store you can look up the product to see if you have already tried it and what you thought of it.

A Loud, Lovable Lady

Peg Bundy, a loud beautiful lady.
Chelsea Fagan feels marginalized as a loud and proud lady. I point to Mrs. Bundy as our Queen.

This entry is in response to the article No One Will Love a Loud Girl by Chelsea Fagan posted today in Thought Catalog.

As a “Loud Girl,” myself I do not support this article. It is backwards and self pitying and doesn’t take into account that some people don’t like it when anyone is loud and aggressive no matter what’s going on (or not) between his or her legs. Some people are just plain offended by that sort of behavior. And that’s OK. It is true that there does exist people who will tolerate that behavior  from a man and not a woman but, frankly, that is mostly the territory of degenerate idiots.

The author either  ignores the possibility that some women are just like that independent of male society, or is unaware that it exists.  It appears to be the opinion of the author that all women are loud fiery hell cats on the inside and the evil men of our society are squashing us into sad, demure and frail little things. Furthermore, those same men are  punishing any who disobey by denying them the one thing that all women, strong or weak, truly want: love. The article is insulting to loud women,  quiet women, in between women and most men.

I get it – thoughts on Israel and Palestine

I get that you think Israel shouldn’t exist.

I get that you think it only came to be through dirty politics and a corrupt west and it only continues to exist for those same reasons. I get that you think the last 7 decades of British, American and Israeli governments have been nothing but bloodthirsty, power hungry warlords who want to control everything and everyone they see. That Israel only exists because of some fucked up ancient religious proclamation that isn’t valid in the modern era. I get that.
