I’ve learned how to cook since I moved out to California. It’s therapeutic. And delicious~ I garnish everything with a fried egg, and I never regret it.
Is it legal for a prospective employer to ask you what medications you’re on?
this is so important that i’m reblogging it. NO. NO IT IS NOT. read more.
Very important! All my chronic condition people take note.
Employers cannot ask ANY health status information before extending a job offer. They can’t specify it in the job description (only required physical abilities as pertains to essential functions of the job, like “can lift X pounds” for a warehouse kind of job or something), they can’t ask or try to get you to talk about it in your interview. They can only ask about conditions that would affect what accommodations you’d need in the workplace, and they can only do that AFTER making an official offer of employment and you officially accepting. At which point, if they find out what you need and then retract their offer, you have grounds for an EEO discrimination complaint. At no point EVER should your meds be relevant to the conversation unless you’re accepting a position that requires you to operate heavy machinery or vehicles and the medication you take makes that unsafe, because then it’s a legit safety concern both for you and anyone you’d be working with.

Man, I wish more people talked about Monsters vs Aliens. I wasn’t that impressed by it the first time, but watching it again it’s got a really great message.
It’s about a girl who sacrifices for her fiance, but when she needs him he dumps her. But the best part? There isn’t another guy that makes her go ‘I never needed him, I can do great things on my own!’ She realizes this for herself! She realizes that she is great. That her friends who support her when she needs them are great. And that she doesn’t need to be a small, meek, or accepting to be happy.
it fuckin better
when you make a musical reference and nobody understands it
I was going to start tagging things on Dani’s reblog blog and go back and tag a bunch of things then… Then I realized she has made 3500+ posts on there.
This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
