Hi I really like your blog and I would like to know what your current blog is like too, so could you give me the url, please?

Not on anon, sorry.

I would rather not have the two linked.

Because I still keep gaining a few followers here:

I just want to let you know that this blog isn’t actually active (I just check it for messges a handful of times).

I started a new blog a while back that is now my main blog to get away from the issues this place was causing for me.

So I don’t want to just post it, but if you want that URL please feel free to ask for it, I’ll give it to you.

Thanks.

The petitions against American Diggers and Diggers. Keep it up!

Various organizations have reached out to National Geographic and expressed their concern about ‘Diggers’. While they can’t stop the airing of the show (it premiered last night) it has opened up a dialogue that will hopefully lead to something positive. Lots of reports are coming in from people who watched the show to see just how bad it was and things went pretty much exactly as expected. 

Several people have reported that they have gotten a direct response from Sam Adams, one of the advertising sponsors for the network, and they have not only explained their position (they purchase blocks of advertising time on many channels and have no control over when their ads air or during what shows the ads will appear) and they have sent the protests up to their advertising department for review. Cheers to that!

SpikeTV has not premiered ‘American Diggers’ yet, so every call, email and tweet is important! 

I’m still on hiatus but this is really important for me as an archaeologist and I’ve got more followers on here. 

Please please please sign this petition.  What Spike and NatGeo are doing is not okay and needs to be stopped. 

I don’t think I’m coming back here anytime soon. Still checking messages on ocassion otherwise get my new URL if you still want to follow me.

To any one who may care:

I have made the decision to once again take some time away from this blog for personal reasons.

I’ll still be on Tumblr, but on a different blog. 

If you feel so inclined message me for the URL.

I’ll reblog this later to make sure people see it since it’s late.

Other than that, have a nice night and I’ll see you around.

I think it might be time for a break.

I’m switching over to my other blog, the one I made during the fall until I want to come back here.  

I cannot and do not want to have to deal with all the things I’m seeing right now.

A lot of you already have it, but message me if you’re new and would like to follow me over there.

I don’t know how long it’s going to be.

I have spent way too much of this weekend in a very angry mood. 

Yay. 


I’m sorry, I thought we were explorers

Sitting on the floor all weekend instead of my desk was a terrible idea.

Knees.  Pain.  Ow. 

I think I’m actually a terrible person I’m just really good at hiding it. 

You know I was going to respond to that reblog until I finished reading the tags.

Haha fuck off, it has nothing to do with Sam/Jack as a ship. 

Passive aggressive tagging is still passive aggressive and obnoxious.

Pro tip: Don’t jump down people’s throats without actually knowing why I wrote something.

Just an idea.
