Meet The First Woman To Make It Into The FDNY’s Calendar Of Heroes. Danae Mines became one of the few female firefighters in the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) 11 years ago, despite her family telling her that only men joined the department. This year, she broke down another barrier by becoming the first woman to be featured in the FDNY’s 2015 Calendar of Heroes. She had been told that the honor was reserved for men, but when she saw the open call for firefighters, she went, despite feeling a little intimidated standing in line with more than 100 men.  There are currently only 41 women in the department, but perhaps the attention Danae is getting will increase that number. “I wanted my picture in the calendar so that young girls and young women can see me and know that they can do this job,” she told the New York Daily News.

I need this calendar!

I hate profilers, do you know that? 

I’m getting back to posting fictional couples that I root for. I don’t want to call it shipping because that suggests I want them to be together. Instead, by posting these couples, I am admiring how the writing makes me feel :)

I used to have a guy like Morgan who would call me “baby girl” and depend on me at work. We were friends for awhile, and then more. I wish we’d never tried “more.”

Emphasis on LIKE! Morgan cares for Garcia’s feeling. Their love is a special kind.

Father’s Day is almost here.

I have a central cast of 6; 2 males, 4 females.  I only specified for one Indian female, and one ethnically ambiguous female.  

Cast an ethnically ambiguous girl, a light skinned Indian girl, an African American girl, and a dark skinned Indian girl.

I have no Caucasian female leads.

And I am damn proud of it! :)

OITNB cast with their character posters

It’s so close!!!
