@Jaythenerdkid/Aaminah Khan wrote this thought-provoking post about quoting versus stealing someone's words on the Internet. It's a very important piece, I think, and something that I'm sure a lot of regular bloggers worry about. Once you're done reading it, check out her other posts.
Over at Queertiques, cinephile Roger reviewed the Israeli film "Cupcakes," which, unfortunately, hasn't been widely released in the states yet, but looks like loads of fun!
You should also check out Yuri Hobart's lovely blog, Bookswept, which I recently stumbled on and am so glad I did! It's a pretty simple blog -- Hobart occasionally writes short bits about herself, but usually just keeps track of the books she is reading with a nice little quote from each one. She just celebrated her 25th birthday on the 13th of March (Louise's note: the same day as my nephew's birthday, but he doesn't celebrate for religious reasons and I'm not allowed to send him a card; therefore, I must spread joy to others instead), so if you happen by, wish her a belated "happy birthday!" I like Bookswept because of how many of the books featured I have loved -- and that suggests that I might really like the others that I haven't read. :)
I'm really into root vegetables right now, though it feels like such a fall/winter thing and we really are approaching spring right now (though it may seem like it is taking forever!). So I might have to try to make this recipe from Little Dinner Party before I am craving more warm weather foods (like pasta salads & picnics). Which reminds me: I really need to do some grocery shopping!
And finally, last but not least, Ora Uzel wrote an extraordinarily thoughtful piece over at Geek Melange that considers how transgender persons are portrayed in the media, touching on everything from film to comics. It's a good read, so get on over and check it out.
Now it's time for me to attend to priorities, like my growling tummy. As always, leave your comments below!
