Fun Fact about me. The Christmas cards I send out are ALWAYS NON Traditional.
This is the front of the card that I will be sending out.
PEOPLE THAT RED THING IS YOUR DOG”S PENIS!
Oh my God! That would make me want to bash my head against the wall in frustration. Can’t believe that people are that dumb.
I saw actualsolas’s post about Anders and the tiger he doodled in the one book from Witch Hunt, and how that had a Calvin and Hobbes-esque vibe to it. I was amused! An attempt was made.
EW: What would Daryl be like now if the zombie apocalypse never happened?
The Scully Effect
One of the most frustrating aspects of this scarcity is that we know just how significant an influence powerful female, scientist role models can have on young women.
Perhaps the most prominent example of this power has come to be known as the “Scully Effect.” Named for Special Agent Dana Scully, the medical doctor and FBI agent who was one half of the investigative team on “The X-Files”, the Scully Effect accounts for the notable increase in women who pursued careers in science, medicine, and law enforcement as a result of living with Dana Scully over the nine years “The X-Files” ran on Fox.
The show has been off the air for more than a decade. Yet the character of Dana Scully remains a powerful example of how a dynamic female character whose primary pursuit is science—not romantic relationships—can have a lasting impact on our culture.

The rest of the article this is from is a good read:
Less “Big Bang Theory,” More Dana Scully: What It’s Going to Take to Lead More Girls Into Science — Only 25 percent of STEM jobs are held by women. YouTube science sensation Emily Graslie on how we can inspire them with better-quality pop-culture role models.
While I do agree Scully is a fantastic character…I thought the final seasons of the show weakened her character.

when you got nothing you got nothing to lose
So figuring out bday stuff, I decided to try my hand at “comic book shoes” and started a project to do two sets. One was for my girlfriend, Scuffin, and so of course I decided to use Dragon Age art, or my favourite art which is the loading screen art. I found some high quality photos on the internet (so thank you to those who share those files) and printed them out. I would have loved to use some of the keep artwork, but it wasn’t coloured at that point, and wouldn’t have meshed well.
When I started these, I really worried it would just be a patchwork of colour without much identifiable, but in the end it came together enough that I am quite pleased with the final result. I shipped them out and Scuffin got them today and I am so happy they actually fit her feet (albeit a tad tight). Definitely worth the all nighter, the many “oopsies” that hopefully she won’t notice too much, and the slug I stepped on with my barefeet while spraying the finishing spray.
Love you, sweetheart.
Both fun and frustrating, I thought I’d share the many pics I took. (I definitely plan on making her take a picture of her wearing them too).
holy shit these are amazing
These are fantastic!
