Written English lacks a standard way to mark irony. Among the oldest and most frequently attested are the percontation point proposed by English printer Henry Denham, and the irony mark, used by Marcellin Jobard and French poet Alcanter de Brahm. Both marks take the form of a reversed question mark, "⸮".
Normandy landing that you didnt see. 1944
Red Cross workers.
That is seriously the most badass thing I’ve ever seen.
… i hate to feel like asking: this is for real right?
From the Red Cross page.
This is like the 3rd time it’s come across my dash in the last 3 weeks, and every time I pause and enjoy the action of the jump and the different body types and how freakin’ awesome these ladies are. But this is the first time I noticed the woman in the pants and suspenders. (Which is *so* my thing) <3
tl;dr: i really need to draw them hanging out with Peggy and Steve and everyone else. :D
(Really tired of the fact that the only women who seem to show up in those WWII era fics are either prostitutes for the Howling Commandos or girls who date Bucky)
Here’s a good set of resources for the 350,000 women in the Armed Forces during WWII: http://libguides.mnhs.org/wwii_women
Belle, my beautiful, loving therapy cat of 15 years is in desperate need of some help. She’s currently in the ER right now. I’m distraught and can only think to beg for help. We visited her today and she’s had to stay yet another night. She looked horrible. She definitely wants to come home.
Please give whatever you can and share this with everyone. $1000 can be raised here if all of my followers donated $1 each. Please. I’m desperate. I miss her so much and I’m scared.
I just got off the phone with the ER vet. I’m to see her in 4 hours and we’re going to decide if she comes home or goes to her regular vet. She’s not eating or drinking. She still has diarrhea.
I don’t know what to do. I feel overwhelmed with pain for my baby. I just want her happy and well and I’ll do whatever that takes.
I hate to beg for help but I cannot afford any of what is happening. I’m disabled and rely on Social Security each month. I’m on a very fixed income. I cannot work.
Paying these bills is impossible for me.
$1, 2, 5, 10…. Anything you can give helps. Please share this update. I’ll let you know more in the morning.
