Life as a Princess
Welcome back to the show. It's a marvelous day for food and family. Happy Thanksgiving from myself and Vibravo. Yes, he's here in Chicago, ready to spend the holiday with me. Aww yes! I get him all to myself! Anyway, there aren't too many top stories tonight, but I'll still make sure I deliver, as always.
In Movie News
There was a Captain America: Civil War trailer that got released on Tuesday night. It's amazing! I have to go see it! Oh Captain America! Why are you beating up Iron Man? Well, he deserves it, so I'm not complaining. I didn't see Spiderman...or Ant-Man. Phooey. I did see Black Panther, whoever that is. I have to wait until May to see this awesome movie? Well, that's gonna be a while. I'll be the first one in line. Let's go, Team Captain America!

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade was today. Vibravo and I watched it together...or, more like
Will America burn for Political Correctness?Will America burn for Political Correctness?1 week ago in Articles & Interviews
When we are facing the possibility to be eradicated by a powerful enemy, it boggles the mind when people, who are also in danger of being killed are trying to prevent our military (even some of our own government) from defending us against this threat!
^I think is the best answer ive seen as far as using the "peaceful Muslims" argument as deterrent for facing Islamist extremists.
We hire our government and train our army to defend us against this, why not let them do their jobs before we end up under martial law under a new set of revamped rights under who knows who's dictatorship!
They are piling into our country through open borders, and armed by the presidents "Fast and Furious" act. If you know to pray, do so. if you know the Bible, you know the possibility of our country being under final judgment; as in the order mentioned when a people are to be destroyed (immoral
LGBT+ Acronyms===== About Acronyms =====LGBT+ Acronyms1 day ago in Articles & Interviews
This is a heated subject, and many LGBT+ people have their own preferences for an acronym. But there really is no one right acronym. The idea that there is a single "LGBT+ community" assumes all groups in the acronym have the same problems, goals, and needs, across the world, which is very untrue.
It is always preferred to refer to specific groups. EX, if you're talking about non-hetero orientations, don't say gay. Say non-straight or LGBA. If you're talking about sodomy or marriage laws, though, don't say non-straight or LGBA. LGBT or LGBTI is more relevant. If you're talking about homophobia, LGB. Etc, etc.
Although a single community doesn't exist, what does exist is spaces. A "space" is something set aside for a specific group. A space can be a club, an organization, a resource, a meetup, a network, a publication, a blog, even a post or deviation. A space may be geared for people of the specified group only, or it may include a
Anos sabaticos“Inês Maria Meneses: O que faria num ano sabático?Anos sabaticos1 week ago in Articles & Interviews
Paulo Ribeiro: Os anos sabáticos são um luxo do século XX. Hoje em dia o privilégio é o trabalho.”
Retirado da revista E, suplemento da edição nº 2245 do Expresso
Antes de hoje ter lido a pequena entrevista da qual retirei esta breve secção, tinha a ideia de que o “ano sabático” era a licença que o professor universitário podia tirar, durante o respetivo período de tempo, para ser dispensado das aulas e poder concentrar-se nas suas investigações. Ou então o termo referia-se ao período que o aluno indeciso tira entre o fim do ensino secundário e o ingresso nos estudos superiores, de forma a aclarar o rumo que pretende dar à sua vida. Mas hoje, ao encontrar o termo empregue tal como no excerto supra-transcrito, apercebo-me que a expressão se alarga para também denomina

It’s hard to define what inspired many of my stories as I have had many, many inspirations. Be warned if you don’t wanna read what my inspirations are, or you don’t know who I am, hit the back button NOW.
From what I know, Newgrounds played a big part of developing my sense of humor for them as I used to watch many videogame sprite movies when I was in college and it was break time. Seth McFarlane’s work such as Family Guy, American Dad and the Cleveland Show all play a big part in my inspiration too, (although nowadays I don’t watch much of his work as it got stale to me.) South Park was also a huge inspiration too. (Ditto what I have to say about Parker and Stone’s work nowadays.)
Many webshows such as AVGN and the Nostalgia Critic ,were also a huge inspiration too, (even though I now dislike the NC for picking on stuff I like way too many times, plus his humor got stale to me. Sorry fans! While I still

It's my first day of working at the external company. It's a subsidiary from Ergon, who seems to be taking on most of these people. It's a cloth washery. Here they take on the laundry of several different care institutions - homes for the elderly and/or mentally handicapped. All pieces of cloth have a little barcode in them that also has the name of the institution and the name of the owner.
The washery is located in Veldhoven - about an hour cycling for me, and work starts at 8:00. I woke up at 6AM to be sure I'd get there on time, since I do get lost frequently. Since the location just happens to be exactly where my father used to work 20-odd years ago, he was able to give me a good route. I find it without much difficulty beyond heavy traffic.
So easily that I'm 40 minutes early. I'm told to wait in the canteen until 8, then report back for duty. The woman in charge is somewhat bewildered at me not having brought anything - no money or food - to lunch. I cou
