Gone for the week…
I’m off this week to attend Barnard’s Young Women’s Leadership Institute. I can’t wait to return with stories of the feminist awesomeness that will undoubtedly occur there, and not to fear, there will still be new posts by lovely contributors every day! Some comments may go unapproved until Saturday, for which I am very sorry, and yet, despite the fact that I figured out how to run this blog, I’m technically challenged beyond basic blogging functions and can’t think of an alternative. So. Yeah.
I can’t think of a greater present to return to than a bunch of new submissions from you guys! Seriously though, the FBomb could always use submissions (email to email@example.com)
Have a happy week of July 13th!

Gossip Round Up
I have no schedule for this feature. I do not live my life with regularity, sad-ish but true. Anyway, on with it.
UP passed the $280 mil mark, 2nd only to Finding Nemo of Pixar’s movies (because Ellen is a beast). UP is the best movie ever. I’m hypercritical of everything and I couldn’t find anything wrong with it. I do not like the cone of shame. Hahahaha. Moving on.
*valid point made after this was posted: lack of female characters. This is true. Especially with the dogs? Wtf not even logical. I still thought this was a great movie with positive messages.
Vanessa Hudgens is going to play a hooker in the new film “Sucker Punch.” Of the role, Hudgens said, “I’m playing a character name Blondie and it’s …

Target Women: Hair
Newest from Sarah Haskins
Sort of reminds me about how Facebook quizzes think my hair color affects my personality. Apparently, I should be a redhead (I am not) because I am feisty (what a creative word association for red head) energetic, intelligent and articulate. What the fuck ever, facebook, thanks for deducing me to my looks yet again.
