I was born in the home of the Kentucky Derby and grew up in a neighborhood called Derby Downs...thus, I am the DerbyKid.

Since today starts Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I don’t see or hear anybody talking about something SO important that most people aren’t aware of, I should mention that checking for lumps and dense breast tissue is great…but, they are not the only warning signs or symptoms of Breast Cancer.

In my case, it was a Nipple Discharge. And, I know, I know…TMI…but, please be aware that this happens. Don’t be like me and put it off because you didn’t know what it was or didn’t think it was anything serious.

Have five minutes and five bucks and hate Cancer?

Please consider donating to my brother’s Winship 5K page

I’ve been a patient at the Winship Cancer Institute since January and they saved my life by getting rid of my Breast Cancer. Winship isn’t just a place where Cancer patients get treated, they actually DO THE RESEARCH to help eradicate it.


I donated because I’m not a punk.

And, on your birthday! Thanks, friend!

You’re an awesome human being and I thank you for your contribution to this cause and to life. Because MY life and my existence on The Interweb is better with you in it. 

Now, go…do something fun to celebrate YOU today!

CODE BLUE Oliciters!!! Shipper Down! Shipper DOWN!


Jenn? Jenn? JENN!!!!! I just read this and for the first time in forever I have freaked out to no end.http://www.greenarrowtv.com/arrow-andrew-kreisberg-talks-about-the-state-of-oliver-laurel/16823
Kreisberg is STILL referring to O/L as Lois and Clark. He said it’s one of those times they can take their time on. What if that’s their plan? What if they plan on bringing them back together by the end of the series? What if this was ‘indeed’ what he meant when he talked about slow-burn the other day, in the extend of taking it from the start? Business partners, then get them close… OH SHIT PLEASE MAKE ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT THIS ‘CAUSE I’M REALLY FREAKING OUT

We’ve got a code blue fandom!!!!



Stay with me  no-one-seesyou-likeido!!! Stay with me!!!

You know…I didn’t get to do lamaze during labor. My daughter was born at 28 weeks. I didn’t even make it to lamaze class. I rocked an emergency c-section baby.

****side note…this is not a bad way to go. Not only did they completely knock me out (because the doctors were kind of scared. You don’t want to be awake when doctors are scared) but then they give you  the good drugs afterwards.

So let’s do it now. Together. Shall we?


This article. THIS article. It is the bain of my existence. So let’s take a look at it okay sweetie?

"He’s comparing Oliver and Laurel to the most iconic romantic pairing in superhero history?"

Just came across your post in the Laurel Lance tag and was confused by your confusion on this.

Aren’t there some grounds to compare Green Arrow/Black Canary to Superman/Lois Lane? 

Since this was in a tag that I frequent so I can see Black Canary/Laurel Lance stuff, I just wanted to add that I would definitely put Green Arrow/Black Canary up there with Supes and Lois. They’ve been in my Top 3 DC Comic Couples (in addition to Supes/Lois and Bat/Cat) for a while now.
