WHEN TO ABANDON SHIP:
If Tumblr requires an account somehow linked to Yahoo.
If David Karp steps down, no matter what the reasons are.
If you have to pay to reach all of your followers (FACEBOOK!)
If Yahoo begins censoring legal images and videos.
If your dashboard becomes three columns by default.
If more than 10% of the dashboard is taken up by advertising.

The plan for tonight is to watch Elementary online while having dinner, then make huge progress re-editing one of my YA fantasy books into an adult fantasy book. Unless of course I get invited out and then it all goes out the window…
Always remember your kid’s name. Always remember where you put your kid. Don’t let your kid drive until their feet can reach the pedals. Use the right size diapers…for yourself. And, when in doubt, make funny faces. [The Daily Beast, 2009]

Finally, the lock clicked, the bolt rotated, and the door swung open. “Armani,” he whispered.
Alternate Theories to Explain the Greenwich Anteater’s Immaculate Conception | The Hairpin
One of the funniest Hairpin posts I’ve ever read…! Also, seriously, we have a new (anteater) savior.
his wife, too fragile for this sinful world, bears his child in the course of Atlanta being bombed, then recuperates on barely any food while feeding and entertaining two babies and a toddler so everyone else can work, then DRAGS A SWORD to DEFEND HER SISTER-IN-LAW’S HOME even though she can barely walk, and absolutely makes the best of her situation.
