Cosmos has been on for 9 minutes and I’m already weepy about humanity and space and science.
Please Excuse The Schmaltz
I’ve reached another follower milestone, and I’m always very shocked and touched that so many people like my hokey little blog thing. I think keeping up the mystique of who I really am helps a little bit?
I started this tumblr because of a girl, and though it’s been four years and the girl is no longer around, I appreciate all the interesting people here, and all of the very real friends I’ve made (and met) all over the world. I can honestly say that I’m a very different person than I was four years ago, due in part to this terrible, wonderful, website.
I <3 you all, you’re all perf.
A state legislator from Santa Monica is introducing a bill that would prohibit orca shows at SeaWorld in San Diego.
The bill by Assemblyman Richard Hershel Bloom, a Democrat, would make it illegal to use orcas “for performance or entertainment purposes.” It would also ban captive breeding done at SeaWorld of orcas, also known as killer whales.
The bill is supported by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and is prompted by the documentary “Blackfish,” which was highly critical of the use of orcas at SeaWorld parks and centered on the death of a trainer at the park in Orlando, Fla.
As state legislation, the bill would only apply to the San Diego park, the only park in the state with orca shows.
"These beautiful creatures are much too large and intelligent to be confined in small, concrete pens for their entire lives," Bloom said in a statement."
So we took a ride out to long island and now I’m sitting in a bakery, and I’m enjoying the hell out of my company and my linzer-tart.

I wake up at 10, make some bacon and eggs, enjoy half an everything bagel, and curse at morons on Meet the Press.
