This great print has been making the rounds this weekend at an impressive pace!  I originally saw it on DC Women Kicking Ass, but quickly found out that it was EVERYWHERE.  It was drawn by Chicago artists, and twins, Sarah and Catherine Satrun.  They put the print together for last weekend’s C2E2 comic convention, and it sounds like it sold like gangbusters!  If you want to get your own copy, the Satruns are figuring out how to set up an online shop and will likely have them available in the near future, which is super fun.  I might have to get one.  It’s a great piece, simultaneously sweet and inspiring, and it totally captures the spirit of what Wonder Woman is all about.

So congrats to the Satrun sisters on their big success with the prints!  Perhaps they’ll soon be the female equivalent of Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon.

Within the past week, I have joined a Wonder Woman group- Share the Wonder.  And I was like okay, let’s see if this one is any different than the last Wonder Woman groups I’ve been in. It has Christie Marson, niece of William Marston-creator of Wonder Woman in the group. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by some of the interactions, and Squeee’d out loud at a compliment, Ms. Marston gave me in the group. I’m still kinda walking on air from that compliment! 😀

So…imagine my surprise this morning when a person was obnoxiously obnoxious (so bad I had to say it twice). I posted a pic of Wonder Woman and Superman- black and white artwork for people to print out and color if they want.

 Pic:images (1)
Now then, I know that the whole WW and Superman pairing is not everyone’s cup of tea. But honestly, you said your opinion, so drop it. Constantly posting and whining about…. not appropriate behavior. “Is this what Diana has taught you?”   The idea of the group is to share what Princess Diana aka Wonder Woman has shown you, taught you, what does Wonder Woman stand for in your opinion. So honestly this person is annoying… but I’m not dropping out of this group, one person does not speak for the rest. 🙂

The other issue I have had with some in the group is my own issue. “WOW! She’s fucking stacked! Yeah! That’s a WONDER WOMAN!” Really??? *facepalms*   Yeah, I can see her in comic form smacking some sense into these people. LOL 😀

This is the cosplayer known as Riddle’s Messy Wardrobe on FB.
She did a fantastic job her on the uniform. She’s beautiful IMO! 😀

 

However the hilarity really ensued for me, when I was being silly this morning getting ready for my on-call shift at work. I put on my Wonder Woman tiara, why yes I do have a Wondie tiara and bracelets. 😀 And snapped a selfie. I then changed my FB avi to this pic. Why? Because why not? It’s fun and I like having fun. OMG! you should’ve have seen it– the numbers on my messages-in ten minutes from changing my avi, I received 20 messages, two of them were very sweet and supportive. The other oooooh twenty eight now, “You are a disgrace to Wonder Woman. She doesn’t have Blond hair or Brown eyes. Your breasts are too small!” Yeah, those are the snippets narrowed down for you. I’ve left out the really rude and crude ones! You’re welcome!! LOL 😛

One of my friends tagged me:

unnamed2See isn’t he sweet!!! I cropped out his identifying info… I’m sure he wouldn’t have minded, but I prefer to ask for permission first. 😀
so he reblogged this on his blog and added in the comment below- How Awesome is Blue Stevey!!! <3:

bluestevey:

I love this girl, though we haven’t met in person. Wonder Woman is about feminism, the strength of the female essence, & equality. A pure expression of yin, if you will. Michelle is 1 of the strongest, toughest, sweetest, & most feminine (ie: beautiful) women I know. She snapped a shot of herself playing dress-up, just a couple of wks after her, dare I say it?, 48th b-day, as though she were still (she is!) a kid, & she caught flack for it. Why? Because she isn’t young, thin, brunette, & matching someone’s (male, I’m sure) idea of beauty. Because she dares to be herself, & doesn’t give a damn about society’s expectations. What did 1 of my female friends think of this pic? ‘Wow! I love your Wonder Woman swag!’ Let’s get more of that goin’, please. . .

Anywho, what does wonder woman mean to me? Compassion, Equality, Education, Temperance, Diversity, Beauty- not necessarily physical beauty either, Strength, Standing up for one’s beliefs!  Yes, I get all that from the many different aspects of Wonder Woman, she’s had her origin retold many different ways/times. However the basic idea is still the same, Equality between the sexes! She doesn’t hate men, neither do I. I just want equal pay, respect, etc. 😀

So let’s finish this entry up with a lovely speech given by Ms. Emma Watson:

I hope ya’ll are having a beautiful day in your part of the world. Once again, YAY! for writing therapy, in the past some of this would have been a thorn in my side. Now I write it out, and TADA it’s no longer an issue for me to dwell on. 😀

XOXO M’Chel

World Rabies Day
September 28, 2014 in the World
World Rabies Day is an international campaign which is observed on September 28, 2014. September 28 is the anniversary of the death of Louis Pasteur who, with the collaboration of his colleagues, developed the first efficacious rabies vaccine. The United Nations Observance is coordinated by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control, a non-profit organization with headquarters in the United States and the United Kingdom. World Rabies Day takes place each year.
World Rabies Day aims to raise awareness about the impact of rabies on humans and animals, provide information and advice on how to prevent the disease, and how individuals and organizations can help eliminate the main global sources. Events held to mark World Rabies Day range from symposia on current rabies control methods and public events for raising awareness about good prevention practice, to sponsored walks, runs or bike rides, to free or externally-subsidized vaccination clinics for dogs.
Rabies is a viral disease that causes acute encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) in warm-blooded animals. The disease is zoonotic, meaning it can be transmitted from one species to another, such as from dogs to humans, commonly by a bite from an infected animal. For a human, rabies is almost invariably fatal if postexposure prophylaxis is not administered prior to the onset of severe symptoms. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system, ultimately causing disease in the brain and death.

Gold Star Mother’s Day
September 28, 2014 in the USA
Gold Star Mother’s Day is observed in the United States on the last Sunday of September each year. It is a day for people to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter while serving the United States Armed Forces.
Each year on Gold Star Mother’s Day the United States president calls on all Americans to display the nation’s flag and hold appropriate meetings to publicly express their love, sorrow, and reverence towards Gold Star Mothers amd their families. Government buildings are also required to display the flag.
The name the Gold Star Mothers was derived from the custom of military families who put a service flag near their front window. The flag featured a star for each family member serving in their country – living members were denoted in blue but gold stars honored family members who were killed while in duty. In 1918 President Woodrow Wilson approved the wearing of black arm bands bearing a gilt star by those who had a family member who died in the military service to the United States. This distinguished them from the blue stars, representing a family member presently serving in the armed forces.

National Drink Beer Day
September 28, 2014 in the USA
Today is Drink Beer Day! Raise a pint and toast to one of the oldest and most popular beverages in human history.
There are hundreds of different varieties of beer, but they all fall into one of two categories—ale or lager. Historians believe that humans have been producing beer, or some form it, since the Neolithic Era. The oldest continuously operating brewery in the world is in the Bavaria region of Germany. The Weihenstephan brewery began producing beer in the year 1040. Today, the company exports fourteen different brews all over the world.
There’s really only one way to celebrate Drink Beer Day! Gather a group of friends for a beer tasting at home or at your favorite bar. Be sure to check for promotions and giveaways that might be going on in your area. Cheers!

September 28, 2014 in the USA
Ask a Stupid Question Day is celebrated on September 28, 2014. Ask a Stupid Question Day is a holiday that is sometimes celebrated in the United States, usually by school students and teachers. Although Ask a Stupid Question Day’s default date is September 28, in practice it is usually observed on the last school day of September.
This holiday was created by teachers in the 1980s to encourage students to ask more questions in the classroom. According to HolidayInsights.com, “[a]t the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule.”
