Desktop shrine for making sure your boss stays the fuck away.

Don’t knock it. When I HAD a desk during my active duty days (I was the system administrator), I sure as shit had an altar ON MY DESK to keep the nonsense at bay.

Warning to all women using the OkCupid dating site/app; if you are matched with this guy DO NOT CONTACT HIM. He has raped two girls and assaulted several, and is known to stalk, harass, and abuse. Police have been notified but no charges were ever filed. Long story short he got away with it every time. If he shows up on your feed, do not answer his messages and please report him. He is extremely dangerous. Be careful. Please reblog to try and keep women safe.

This is really serious. He is the most disgusting and vile human being I have ever come in contact with. He is extremely dangerous and knows how to use his “charm” to his advantage. Please spread this around (especially if you know me in real life since he from my area). You could literally save someone’s life.

I don’t like the fact he’s living so close to my area…

PA residents, heads up!



  • It’s called Master of the Universe.
  • It was originally published on (aka where fanfiction goes to die).
  • E.L. James’ pen name was Snowqueens Icedragon because of course it was.
  • Snowqueens Icedragon does not use quotation marks. 
  • She does, however, make up expressions like "my very small inner goddess sways in a gentle victorious samba" and “I can almost hear his sphinx-like smile through the phone.”
  • They spend more time filling out sex-related paperwork than they do actually having sex.
  • This is my reaction to all of the sex scenes:
  • image
  • Because the human body doesn’t work like that
  • This is my reaction to everything else:
  • image
  • Because the english language doesn’t work like that.

The 50 Shades of Grey trailer just dropped, so here’s a link to the original Twilight fanfiction that the book is “based” off of, because if you’re gonna read the book before you see the movie you might as well read it in its original format.

In this line of work, you hear it all.  Including a whole lotta ignorant statements.

If you want to avoid opening your mouth and saying something that might be construed as super offensive and rude, check out this list of the ten things to never say to your tarot reader:

I really don’t believe in any of this shit but thought I’d give it a try.”  Um…go away.

Can you tell me my middle name and what color shirt I was wearing yesterday?  I want you to prove how psychic you are.”  You’ve just proven to me how rude you are.  Let me show you my palm.  (AKA talk to the hand.)  Let’s see if you can read that.

What am I thinking right now?”  Duhhhh……..

Did you Google me before I came?”  You have got to be kidding me.  I don’t even have time shave my legs.  (PS thanks for questioning my integrity!)

Can you tell me the day I’m going to die?”  Hang on and let me get my shotgun.  I want to be accurate.

I don’t want to tell you too much.”  Oh goody goody – I just love hostile guessing games!  Now you sit there nice and mute with your arms crossed over your chest (preferably with a scowl) and I’ll do my best to “wow” you.  (Yes, I’m rolling my eyes.)

But the other reader said…..”  Why are you coming here if you liked their reading so much? Seriously.

I need to know how to get away with something.”  Um…wrong service, my friend.  We’re not here to help you become better criminals.  Consult an attorney, pronto.

Is this all you do?  What’s your day job?”  No, this is not all I do.  I also clean my house, do my accounting, tweak my website, feed my family, take care of two demanding cats, write, read business manuals, talk to my attorney, attend meetings, exercise, market my business, do readings via email in person and over the phone, scrub toilets, shop, counsel my children, check in on the neighbor, reach out to friends, attend conferences, teach, answer every email that lands in my inbox, watch Game of Thrones, and take out the garbage.  Is your “day job” all that you do? (PS yes, people can make a decent living doing this work if that is what you really wanted to ask.)

I’m going to get me a tarot deck and a tip jar so I can begin making some easy money like you are!” Tarot work is not “easy” money.  It takes time, skill, and a deep desire to help people.  If you are assuming it’s simple to learn tarot, good luck with that.  And if you are only taking up tarot because you think it’s a way for “quick money”, your motives are all wrong, friend-o.

PS in case you are curious, YES – these are real statements/questions.  You can’t make this stuff up.

Fellow readers – I’d love to hear some of the crazy or rude statements you’ve heard.  Share your best with me on Twitter thetarotlady

I see nothing but ACCURACY here.

I’ll be a hair model for a stylist  that wants to expand their current portfolio.


I’m the only model with locs so I’ll really stand out.

This is a blessing in a blessing because I wasn’t I just saying I need more pro pics? Yes I was! And God was like BOOM, ” There you go.”

All I have to do is show up in a cute all black outfit.

It’s not until next month. But when I get those pics I will definitely share them with you


of all the dreams you have dreamt. all your life. you are the most beautiful.

And she’s real arrogant about it too. How about you wash all that YouthCode off, exfoliate your face, learn how to wield a lipgloss wand and THEN come talk to me.


Just in case you were thinking about getting scissor-happy

I AM thinking about getting scissor happy. I just want to cut out all the tired auburn out of my hair and just grow myself a new mane. Maybe even grow a new set of locs. I just want a change dammit.

if someone got me the wild unknown tarot and the guidebook, i’d love them until the end of time. (not my pic.)

This deck is just as amazing as it looks. I got it last week and I&#8217;ve had it close by ever since. Hopefully you&#8217;ll be able to have this soon.

This came in the mail today! 🔮 (please ignore how gross my hand looks) #tarot #witchy #divination #books

That’s a great book. His deck the Alchemical Tarot is also very good.
