It could happen to you.
I was serving the family sherbet for dessert (pineapple! thanks for asking) and there was some stuck to the metal ice cream scoop so I licked it off.
And my upper lip stuck to the metal scoop and now OW OW OW.
I never expected this to happen. In Florida. In the middle of summer.
Oh great, I’m an MNU bureaucrat. Or a prawn.
I’m the village witch! I get to fly around on a broom and have a smart-alek black cat for my best friend!
I’m a small-town frontier sheriff. In a town populated mostly by lizards, rodents, and other various desert creatures.
I’m Captain America.
A young peasant maid working in the house of painter, to become his talented assistant and the model for one of his most famous works.
I’m five plucky talking golden retriever puppies, then.
Oh fuck… the last movie I watched was Snowpiercer. So I guess I have to be the one to nut the naked Emperor, get my friends killed, destroy the world as we know it, and die for the cause now. Um… you’re welcome?
(@copperbadge, I blame you.) (Again.) (Still)
HAHAHAHAHA do documentaries count, because if so I’m John
motherF ucking Kennedy. (It was a very biased documentary.)
We just watched Whatever Happened to Solange?, so I’m an Italian teacher at a Catholic school with an Old Skool Romance attitude and a penchant for young girls. Thank heavens it was that because otherwise I was stuck with Snowpiercer, too.
Here’s the Black is Blue lipstick again. No filter this time. I’m still not convinced, but I’m not as horrified as before. Thoughts? #severelipstick #365feministselfie
I still like it. :) There’s just that hint of blue — with your glasses, do they have a Black is Purple? Because that would be all coordinated. :)
Stopped by #NapCon on the road back home from #SDCC
Weird — we have that same sculpture in our local library.
And the book’s moved the same way — it was originally being held by both kids and the girl is pointing at something on the page (look at the hands).
*comes out from under the rock*
Um… am I the only person on tumblr NOT in the Marvel fandom?
*pokes head out*
*hides back under the rock*
::laugh:: I wasn’t in, but then I was assimilated.
But never fear — it’s just that Comic Con is trying to take over all wavelengths at the moment.
Assimilated… uh, like The Borg?
Cause if I get to look like Seven of Nine I’m in.
::looks at self::
Dangit, they sent me a different model number.
(Actually… I wasn’t terribly keen on The Avengers until I’d seen all the context movies. The whole MCU kind of demands a level of engagement across the franchise to make it spectacular. I still have issues with The Avengers, because it seemed like it was jamming too much into the story timeline, but I also have parts of it I like. I’m not big on action/battle sequences, though, so I’m unreliable on that score. I suspect I will enjoy the next Avengers film but have some similar complaints about it.)
And in conclusion: they are also very nice to look upon.
I have the most supportive, loving mother ever, and I’m so thankful to have her in my life. She’s never made me feel bad about myself, not once, and she always knows just what to say to make me feel confident in myself again whenever I hit a low point.
I was waiting for a punchline? / I thought this only happened in fiction.
There are at least two of us in reality. My mother once told me that she wanted to be just like me when she grows up.
Three. My mom is marvelous, supportive, warm, and funny when you least expect it. (Both my parents are amazing, actually.) I did not realize how much of a blessing this was until I went to college and began comparing notes with others.
My parents inspire me to be a good parent in turn to my own kids.
I love shopping for school supplies almost as much as I hate it.I love it because I have a thing for office supplies and colored pencils and fresh paper and notebooks. But I hate it because the supply lists can get INSANE.
Now that my daughter is starting middle school, her list is actually toned down; her fifth-grade list last year had me murmuring maledictions through five stores trying to bring the costs down to a reasonable level by mad comparison shopping. My son is starting first grade, however, and his list is growing where hers is shrinking.
At least I’ve gotten better at reusing and recycling. Both kids are using last years’ backpacks and lunchboxes, because I snagged them at the end of the year, cleaned them thoroughly, and tucked them away (in my daughter’s case, the lunchbox is now 3 years old). My daughter’s thumb drive will keep on truckin’ through a third year; my son gets his first this year (he’s very proud). And I recycled 100 unused sheet protectors from my daughter’s binder to transfer to my son’s, which indicates to me two things: 1) the 5th graders did not need the 200 sheet protectors their teachers asked for and 2) no one was watching to make sure my kid actually used them. (Let the children do what we did in Ye Olden Tymes and use a 3-hole punch. Geez.)
And of course, do not forget to buy paper and pencils for home use, because as soon as you send all that stuff to school your kids will come home ready to do homework and you will have NOTHING. Because you sent it all to school.
On the other hand: if you love office supplies, this is the time of year to clean up on the stuff. I usually stock up on spiral-bound notebooks for my writing at this time every year (they’re 3/$1 at Publix!).
Robert Downey Jr. loves calling Chris Evans “Dorito”.
GOODBYE, CRUEL WORLD.
BWAHAHAHAHA I brought some dip.
i have a point to prove to my mom. i want 6 million or more notes. maybe then she will stop acting like someone caused me to “think” this. or that it’s the same as being gay.
I’m pretty sure you know what you’re doing.
Anonymous said: Dear Man, What think you of corsets? Sincerely, Squeezed
As a personal matter, the contents of the corset are generally more to my taste than the corset itself.
Courtney, is this you??? NGL. Stephen was one of my fave parts of Suffragette Scandal. Which I never said anything about. Here is a terrible review.
