my name is deanna and i reblog things that tickle my fancy.

thoroughly enjoys: oatmeal with peanut butter, letting the wind blow through my fro, pasta, writing, quiet fall mornings, and photography.

thoroughly detests: insects of all kinds, the amount of time it takes to do my hair, and drivers who don't use their blinkers.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.

Within three days of becoming engaged, I had already been told that I shouldn’t wear my glasses, because they’re not bridal. I was told my cane wasn’t bridal. I was told my eye… was not bridal. And I realized that if I was going to be “bridal” in their eyes, I was going to have to change who I am. I am proudly disabled.

This photo is giving me LIFE


"Where is my Edward Cullen?"

"Where is my Damon Salvatore?"

"Where is my Christian Grey?"

For your sake, jail I hope.
