#365feministselfie: Week 24

I am again participating in the #365feministselfie project, now in its fifth year, and promised a thread for others to share selfies and/or talk about the project, visibility generally, self-apprecation, and related topics. So here is a thread for Week 24!

A few of my selfies over the last week:

image of me from mid-thigh up, standing in a mirror taking a picture of myself, with my hair up, wearing glasses, a beige cardigan, a white blouse with a colorful butterfly pattern on it, and blue jeans

Me 'n Mr. Celery.

So, Eastsidekate sent me an article about the Wilmington Blue Rocks, a minor league baseball team in Delaware, introducing uniforms featuring "Mr. Celery," because the former general manager of the team wanted a zany mascot, but the team "didn't want to invest a lot of money in a new mascot costume for an idea that might be scrapped after a few weeks if it didn't work out," and they had "this beat-up old celery costume that had been sitting in a warehouse for years," so they "dusted it off, put a guy in it, and called it Mr. Celery."

Obviously this was the greatest thing I've heard in a minute, so I needed a Mr. Celery shirt immediately. And FYI the Wilmington Blue Rocks emailed me a FedEx tracking update every day of this beauty's journey. They were reeeeeeal excited about an out-of-state purchase, apparently! As Mr. Celery says, "WOO-HOO!"

Feminist bats!
