Links Lundi

Hey, folks. I’m still on a limited-typing regimen while waiting for my tendonitis to go away. Hopefully once my seven-pound, 1TB, i7 processor, 17.3″ beast of a refurbished HP arrives and I can get speech-to-text software set up, my mojo and my writing abilities will return in full force, along with actual posts.

(I can also finally find out what this Steam business is all about but that’s much further down the road.)

In the meantime, check out Black Milk’s Halloween line (this dress! these tights!), and the Mass Effect bathing suit that I would seriously consider buying…if I lived in Australia.

Natalie Portman has words for Hollywood: “The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho.”

Natalie Portman is also the face of a contest designed to get more girls involved in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and medicine).  It’s open to girls grades 9-12, so if you know anyone who fits the bill, send them the link! (And if you’re a grown-up in those fields and want to be a mentor, email them!)

The Beheld has a lovely interview with an 80-year-old military wife and homemaker, with some nice affirmations that it’s okay to want to look good and not always follow fads.
