#NMOS14 was created by blogger Feminista Jones to organize nationwide vigils on Aug. 14 at 7 p.m. (EST) honoring the lives of those slain by law enforcement officials.
See you at Love Park, Philly peeps.
There are several vigils taking place today in NYC. I’ll be at Union Square. I hope you will be too.

***SIGNAL BOOST!!!!WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE***
The legal fund. I can’t stress enough how important that legal fund is going to be for SO many people who have been arrested.
and it’s via paypal, just do it.
Just spent 36 hours in Charlottesville, the last 12 of which were spent with some of my closest friends, eating at my favorite restaurant in America, drinking multiple bottles of rosé, and then taking a 6 a.m. flight back to NYC, from which I went straight into the office.
Definitely running on all cylinders today, you guys, thanks.
Sometimes I think that pouring over a restaurant’s menu online and talking with my friends about everything we want to order is more fun than eating at the restaurant itself.
Work BFF and I are going to a spa in the Hudson Valley for our birthdays (which happen to be one day apart). This is one of the options on the spa services menu.
I need to know EVERYTHING about the “Guided Power Nap.”
Today I discovered that I could make the shrugging emoticon man hold things. It’s my most important achievement to date.
- Hear the opening refrain of “Single Ladies.” Immediately take this as your cue to start heading towards the bathroom.
- Be intercepted on the way to the bathroom by your boyfriend’s mother, who instructs you to “get your booty on that dance floor!”
- Respond, “But I’m not single! We have two cats! In New York that means we are basically common law married!” Receive a negative response.
- Begrudgingly walk onto the dance floor while being pulled by one of your boyfriend’s cousins. Make sure one hand is firmly clenched around your drink.
- Find the tallest woman on the dance floor. Stand directly behind her.
- Shift your hiding position in order to avoid your boyfriend’s sister’s gaze. Be thankful, for once, that you are very short.
- As the DJ counts down to the bouquet toss, look directly at the ground.
- Realize, after a moment, that your boyfriend’s sister has not actually thrown the bouquet, but rather is running directly towards you with a maniacal smile on her face.
- When your boyfriend’s sister runs into you and tries to wrestle the bouquet into your non-drink-holding hand, regret your earlier decision not to double fist.
- Struggle for a moment. Realize that despite all of her pre-wedding bridal workouts, you are significantly stronger than her. Know in your heart that if this was a trial by combat, you would emerge victorious.
- Notice a light shining on you. Look up to see the videographer approximately 10 feet away, catching all of this on film.
- Try to force a smile at the multiple professional cameras and smart phones pointed at you as the bride announces, “Now we’re sisters!”
- Walk off the dance floor, avoiding the angry glares of all of the female plus ones.
- Give the bouquet to the groom’s 10 year old niece.
- Immediately remedy your earlier decision regarding double fisting.
