I’ve been wanting to run a giveaway for a while now, and I just reached a nice round follower number that gives me the perfect excuse to! :)
As many of you know, I will be going to Europe soon with my amazing friend Emily. To honor our trip and help us raise some “emergency bail money”, I’m running this giveaway!
The winner will receive a gorgeous wine glass - in the colors of the winner’s choice - painted in the style of the mugs above.
Because this is partially to help Emily and I raise funds, the rules are slightly different than your average giveaway.
1 ENTRY = 1 LIKE
1 ENTRY = 1 REBLOG (multiple reblogs are allowed)
10 ENTRIES = 1 MUG PURCHASE from MISSMILE
- You do not need to follow me. You do not need to follow Emily.
- The contest ends on June 25th.
- I encourage strategic thinking.
- ANY QUESTIONS? Contact me, Jenny, here!
Every time this old post gets reblogged, an angel gets their wings. :)

So here’s the deal. A week ago a friend of mine committed suicide. He was 41 years old, a husband and father of three, grandfather of one. His youngest daughter and my oldest son have been friends for 6 of their 12 years. He and his family have been an important part of my life, and the lives of my two sons. I will continue to provide in any way I can for his family. I will miss him. Terribly. He was always welcoming and compassionate and just a good guy. He had his demons. He drank. Way too much for way too long. He suffered for a very long time with undiagnosed and untreated mental illness. He was on the knife edge for most of the time I’ve known them. I an terribly sad for all of us, but mostly for his children. They lived with his issues, and will continue to live with his choice. I told my children what happened just as other parents struggled with what or how to tell their own kids. This is a conversation I have been preparing for with my ex. Also with mental illness, though likely on meds at any given moment. He could make the same choice to end his life. There were days, honestly, when I wished he did make that choice, and there were others when I could not bear to think of him not in their lives. I struggle with my own guilt around these thoughts, amid my frustrations in dealing with the fallout of his particular problems, all the while constantly vigilant for the same signs in my sons.
We know you bought Tumblr, we know there is nothing we can do about it now, but we only request one thing.
Please, PLEASE do NOT ALLOW FUCKING CHILDREN ON THIS WEBSITE DO NOT MAKE IT FAMILY FRIENDLY, OKAY? THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE WE CAN SHIP AND READ ALL THE GAY SMUT WITHOUT FEELING BAD OR GUILTY AND NOT TO MENTION, THE ONLY PLACE WE DO NOT GET JUDGED BY IT. PLEASE DON’T MAKE IT FAMILY FRIENDLY.
Thank you, that is all we ask for
DEAR FELLOW HUNTERS
IF WE GET ENOUGH SALT ON ENOUGH PEOPLES BLOGS, WE MAY BE ABLE TO PREVENT YAHOO FROM GETTING IN!
WE MUST ACT QUICK.
Where did you get Pink Himalayan Salt? Seriously.
As Americans, we have this naïve assumption that people all over the world are struggling and way behind us. They’re not. Sweden and South Korea have more advanced high speed internet networks. Japan has the most advanced trains and transportation systems. Norwegians make more money. The biggest and most advanced plane in the world is flown out of Singapore. The tallest buildings in the world are now in Dubai and Shanghai. Meanwhile, the US has the highest incarceration rate in the world.
10 Things Most Americans Don’t Know About America http://bananenplanet.wordpress.com/2012/07/17/10-things-most-americans-dont-know-about-america/ (via curlycherie)
There are two areas where the USA is way out in front of the rest of the world: war and prison. The technology of killing is the main investment of US national energy, and of course the semi-public semi-private incarceration economy is flourishing while schools and roads crumble. In many other quality-of-life terms — housing, healthcare, public transportation, public access to technology, mental health support, support for people with disabilities, childcare, primary education, maternity support, social safety net — I think a lot of US Americans personally know that things are not exactly rosy but see no options for fixing it.
Things that need to be more affordable:
-whole, natural foods
-University (education) tuition
Things that need to be more expensive:
-processed foods that are causing the obesity rate to skyrocket
