you know, my childhood would have been much more peaceful for everyone if there hadn’t been so many occasions that my parents had forced me to wear dresses. 

whooops! So I totally mixed up the Hapkido testing weekend thinking it was this weekend so I scheduled my tattoo for the week after.  But testing is next weekend so I’ll be getting inked two days before.  Whoop! Luckily I’m not testing but it’d been nice to have a practice with people to help them prepare.

The Army Nurses were put through rigorous training in preparation for the opening of the second front—Normandy—by the Allies where they would follow the landing forces to help the wounded.

I need to find out more about this.

I dreamed I was pregnant last night and for some of the dream I was pleased but quickly I realized how much I never ever want to be pregnant, give birth, or care for an infant.  I have just never wanted to be a parent, so every time I dream about being pregnant, it’s a doozy of a dream.  Completely stressed out.

And then later in the dream, I was engaged in trying to darn a quickly unravelling polo shirt and everything was getting tangled and snagged and was this huge mess.

I was so happy to wake up to not have to deal with that.

New York. Pennsylvania Station, July 11, 1911.

Dear Mother, I arrived in New York yesterday, 3 pm. Had a fine trip. We are seeing the sights today, stopping at the Gotham Hotel.Geo.

Last night’s dream keeps coming back in turbulant flashes.  It was a dream of flight and fight and deception.  I’m always one step ahead, but there is intense anxiety and a flood of adrenaline.  

So when pieces of it resurface during the day time it’s both thrilling and unnerving.  I can’t remember the chain of events only that it was violence and intense.  And I know I’ll never remember.  And soon I’ll forget.

Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass. 

Oh hell yes.  For one glorious moment this movie was going to be the utter best thing ever made.  And then…. well it was still cool but such a disappointment we didn’t get unexpected kick ass over 40 woman. 

Did we ever even find out what happened to the counsel member?

We, too, thought for a glorious moment that Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a movie where every female character was a secret badass. 

I was really sad, I saw Cap with my mum— who has noted her disappointment before with the lack of kickass older women in movies.

And for a brief moment, I saw her face light up at the councilwoman kicking ass. And then I saw it fall again when it turned out to be Natasha.

Hoo boy did that kill my enthusiasm going into the end of the movie. :c

Same here. Makes a good point though- we see quite a few old male masters kick ass in movies, but there are actually old women out there who can and do do the same thing. We should see it more often in movies. 

But hey, Maddi- tell your mother to watch RED and RED 2. If you want an older woman kicking arse, Helen Mirren does a really good job.

I enjoyed that moment - that shred of a moment - where old lady council member was a secret ninja.  I was so fucking giddy.  I wasn’t too disappointed that it was Natasha, but it would have been SO MUCH COOLER if it was really her!
