Palm Tree, Palm Tree, Palm Tree

Ohhhhhkay.

Monsoon season is officially freaking me out.

The death of Joseph Rudolph Wood III was confirmed by the Arizona attorney general about two hours after the procedure began.

Wood had apparently stayed alive so long that his attorneys filed for an emergency stay after the lethal injection initially failed to kill him, according to a legal filing.

PTPT: Maybe I'll go for a swim. It's just so hot I don't want to leave the house.
Friend: How hot can it be?
PTPT: Let me check... it's 100 degrees.
Friend: It's 9 o'clock at night.
PTPT: Yep. It's 100 degrees.
Friend: But it's---
PTPT: It's 100 degrees.
Friend: ... but---

Friend: Take a cold shower?
PTPT: You got that right.

Hello, My Name is PalmTreePalmTree, and I Am a Negative Nelly

My therapist wants me to keep a gratitude journal in which I will write three things I am grateful for every day.  The purpose of the journal is to help me identify and focus on the positive.

Yeah.

I got nothing.

Big hair, light steps.

This drawing is of a 18th century high society English woman wearing all the in vogue styles of the time.

Observing and sketching high-dressed and fashionable ladies strolling through St. James’ Park in London was an important preparatory step for Thomas Gainsborough. Though the commission for King George III of England was never executed, many drawings remain, including this one from the britishmuseum.

Since the 1970s a Man Has Been Planting a Forest Larger than Central Park, One Tree at a Time

Nestled in Northeast India next to the Brahmaputra River sits Majuli Island, a giant sandbar that happens to be the largest river island on Earth, home to some 150,000 people. It is also the location of the 1,360 acre Molai Forest, one of the most unusual woodlands in the world for the incredible fact that it was planted by a single man.

another way to ruin a pop classic with teenage angst.  Cyndi Lauper would be turning in her freshly dug grave

ah yEs, those angsty teenage years when overdramatic girls go through that oh-so-trivial phase of believing they deserve fundamental human rights a hah ha *wipes a stray tear of mirth*

Cyndi Laupers not even dead

Cyndi Lauper is a long-time activist for human rights and would most likely be holding the damn sign herself

"It is not a dirty word, "feminism." I just think that women belong in the human population with the same rights as everybody else. … The problem is, "A feminist looks like this, or is like that." We are taught not to like ourselves as women, we are taught what we’re supposed to look like, what our measurements are supposed to be. I never hear what measurements men are supposed to be. Just women.”
  - Cyndi Lauper

Do you even Lauper?

"Some boys take a beautiful girl and hide her away from the rest of the world.  I want to be the one to walk in the sun.  Oh girls they want to have fun." 
If that’s not a feminist anthem, I don’t know what is.

It’s possible that “fuck” is not the best tag.
