Q:Ok, so no hate, but I was going through the sugar skull tag and saw another ask you had. So, I want to sort of make a small understanding, firstly, I am Mexican and there isn't trouble that people from other countries use sugar skull inspired make up, but it's offensive when people use it without knowing what it really is or means, but if you know about it, I guess we're all good :>
I’m not Mexican heritage, but I have always enjoyed learning about Dia de Los Muertos. We watched documentaries on it in high school, and our Spanish class celebrated. It’s something I’ve been interested in since the Lizzie McQuire episode. Lol. So therefore, I saw the costumes as tribute, not racist.
It’s 4:20 somewhere.
Bring socks!!!! #homeless #donate #homelessness
As are toiletries!
I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.
Cotton is best. Always cotton
I feel the need to STRESS the necessity of socks. For the event AMOK through Random Acts this year, we went to DTLA to pass out donations. At one point we basically ran out and some of us broke off from the group to buy some more items. We ended up at a convenience store that had two boxes of cotton socks. We bought them and as we were walking one man asked us if we had socks. And we said “Yes.” and gave him a pair and then suddenly we were surrounded by individuals all asking for socks. We were out of socks in a few moments. I can say from personal experience that socks were the most important article of clothing that they wanted.
And as far as toiletries go, tampons. TAMPONS AND PADS. One woman was so excited, gracious, and thankful to receive tampons and pads, as it is a donation that seems to be overlooked. So please, of donations that could be given, while all articles of clothing and food and other necessities are more than welcome, socks and tampons and pads are largely needed.
I work at Goodwill…we get and sell a lot of socks..
I’m drunk. Ugh. This might end bad.
I always end up falling harder than I should and I always end up loving more than I said I would.
I always do more. (via fragmentallygirl)
Last time I checked, no one raised hell about two black dudes portraying two white dudes in a movie….but if anyone dresses up as ANYONE else, all hell breaks loose. Seriously, people?!
Q:The dia de Los Muertos costume is insulting because ITS NOT A COSTUME just like me painting my face black is NOT I repeat NOT a costume. Let me say that again NOT A COSTUME. Wait again NOT A COSTUME NOT A COSTUME NOT A COSTUME NOT A COSTUME you get the point....... Wait NOT A COSTUME PS NOT A COSTUME
Dude. Seriously. Halloween is def dressing up like someone you’re not. If a dia de Los muertos costume is insulting than ALL costumes that aren’t you are insulting! People dress up like fuckin Indians and no one says shit. That one white dude played a black dude in Tropic Thunder, and no one said shit. If you’re gonna bash a sugar skull costume, then go ahead and dismiss Halloween altogether. I did not post my response as a start of a fight. Just letting you know that your argument is invalid unless you are against ALL Halloween costumes. Have a nice day.
If anyone knows of any auto repair technician jobs…preferably with a paid relocation out of this godforsaken state, please message me. This would, obviously, be a job for Z, as I have no special skills anyone needs. Ha. I am at my wits end in this area and something’s gotta give for us.
Anyone knows what is it?
Looks like beads, preserved in formol, 1-1.5 cm in diameter, made of a whitish soft/fragile core and a (very) hard translucide orange core (see picture on the right).The shell becomes crumbly with cracks once dried.
Could they be a kidney or gall stone??
So uhh, my clothing dye ate through my gloves…..
