I am a girl who does things. Here there be geekery, writing, feminism, photography, geeky feminism and sometimes ponies. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone that you're only here for the ponies.
Like what you saw or read here? Interested in getting rid of some of that pesky extra money you've got just sitting under your mattress? Well, consider throwing a few bucks in my tip jar!

The uninspired ensemble seems like a holdover from Margot Kidder’s Lois Lane from 1980’s “Superman II.” Come on, this is a woman unafraid of danger, whose tenacity and heart wins over Superman/Clark Kent.

This may surprise you, but I have ~*feelings*~ about this topic.
