i honestly just had the best fucking 24 hours and i’m not afraid to brag about it
went to my besties house and slept over, we painted our nails (mine is a yayoi kusama dot pattern in hopeful springy green and yellow) and watched wanda sykes stand up (marietta it was so amazing we actually, by chance, ended up watching that very set that that “i’m pussyless!” joke gifset is from!!!), cuddled, fell asleep, woke up the next day and she made me pasta and sauteed fake chicken with olive oil, garlic and rosemary which we ate while we watched her episode of Wife Swap (SHE WAS ON WIFE SWAP) then we gathered ourselves and journeyed to the mall where I got some real cute sweaters on clearance at H&M, i went to Lush for the first time and got Mask of Magnaminty which I CAN’T wait to use, and i got new tapers so i can finally continue stretching my ears (i bought the next size up from the ones i’ve been wearing for like over a year now, and they look like double the size so i thought they might hurt a little but they slid right in xD whoops, i would be mad but they’re super cute so i don’t even care and i got the next size up after that too)
basically it was just a fabulous day and my friend is amazing and i love her
favorite movie ugh
I choose to believe this is the truth.

Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”
King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.
“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”
Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.
What a beautiful badass woman.
King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.
MORE FEMALE KINGS.
Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.
ALL HAIL KING PEGGY!
