MY GRANDMA GOT ALL A’S IN “ETIQUETTE” (YES THAT WAS AN ACTUAL CLASS IN HER HIGH SCHOOL) AND SHE TOLD ME, “DEAR,” SHE SAID,
“YOU NEVER CROSS YOUR LEGS, YOU CROSS YOUR ANKLES. BUT THE GREAT THING ABOUT YOU LIVING IN THIS GENERATION IS YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW MY GENERATION’S RULES. SIT THE WAY YOU WANT. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UP YOUR SKIRT, JUST TELL THEM YOUR AUNT MARY WILL KILL THEM.”
WHICH IS TRUE
MY AUNT MARY HAD A SWITCHBLADE IN A SPECIAL POCKET OF HER NIGHTGOWN UNTIL THE DAY SHE DIED
the moral of this story is
1. Sit the way you want.
2. My great aunt Mary was a fucking badass.
OKAY YOU KNOW WHAT
The whole “cross your legs” deal bothers me A LOT.
A lot of my friends talk about back pain and I have them too, and it’s mostly because they tend to sit at desks too long with the wrong posture. Slouching is one of those wrong postures, but one that’s more common (esp among girls) is crossing their legs.
That’s right. Constantly crossing your legs causes your spine to twist in ways they’re not supposed to/that hurt kid’s posture. One of my friends required back braces for a while cause of this.
So I don’t care if you’re wearing a skirt, pants, what ever. DON’T CROSS YOUR LEGS while sitting. It’s a bad habit and if your panties show
Well to be fucking honest if a girl is sitting down you wont be able to see her panties unless you stoop down so it really isn’t the girl’s fault if you can see her panties??
GODDAMN INCONSISTENT WRITERS. *fumes for several minutes* Every time we visit Hell it’s different. Dislike. Such much dislike very anger. Also…a whole season to find Purgatory, and there’s a fucking back door?! I don’t understand. I don’t.
I guess I just liked that we got something from Josie, even if it was a kind of cliched “I’m in love with my married best friend” character arc. She seems like she was a boss ass bitch before Abaddon possessed her. Can we have a Men of Letters spinoff? I’d rather have that than the Tribes thing that they’re doing (I’m so scared it’s going to be another Originals with just a bunch of frighteningly beautiful people oh and by the way paranormal shit is happening)
Yep. Sam and Dean have been having the same fights since S1 or S2 and it’s getting damn old. They split up at least once a season, I think. But they keep getting back together and not addressing their problems and then they did but not everything sucks and I just don’t know what I want anymore. ….more Charlie Bradbury. Yes. That will fix everything.
Hahaha whenever a writer chooses to personify Death the results are deeply awesome. see also The Book Thief, Terry Pratchett’s Discworld…
Seriously! I get that hell looks different depending on who runs it, that when Dean was there it looked different than Crowley would run it, but when Cas visited it was very different from when Sam visited to get Bobby out? It would be one thing if it had different layers and all, but that was never said so we have to assume it is only one that keeps changing for whatever reason and just ugh
Right??? It’s so ridiculous!
Ah, yeah, that I can get, but it still pissed me off, because they could have done literally anything else. Imagine if instead Abaddon had turned around and stared at her and said “but youuuu… you are even better,” and grinned and then possessed her, so we don’t get the whole “Oh I am a woman I have to sacrifice myself for the big, important man, because woman-feelings~” (especially because, unlike angels, demons don’t exactly need consent? So why get it?)
Ugh yes same. I don’t have much hope for it tbh, especially because it opens with a woman dying again like wow how original lol
Yes! The splitting up is the worst and it’s getting more ridiculous. Remember in S7 about Sam’s girlfriend? He was angry for exactly one day and then…forgave Dean and APOLOGISED? Like yeah I’m so sorry I wasn’t a fan of you stabbing a friend of mine who was completely harmless you fucking prick!
But the problem is that half the time they either don’t address it properly due to a “ah, I was probably just over reacting”-mindset or forget about it after 2 episodes!
Charlie though yes! I am genuinely surprised that she, apparently, read the books and still didn’t stand up to them about sorting their shit out! Then again, she also had that idiotic “sorry you don’t have luck with women” line which made me so angry! Not only does she, like everyone, clearly favour Dean but then she makes fun of something that actually seriously tortures Sam I just… ugh no
Omg I still have to read both oops. But Supernatural’s death is seriously amazing and I’m half sad that he isn’t there more and half glad that he doesn’t get butchered as well
Ooooooh Supernatural’s levels of Hell would be the greatest thing of all time ever if they did it right.
True. I hadn’t thought of that….the more I think about it the more that whole Josie thing was kind of screwy. I guess I was just so happy to see some of her backstory. *sigh*
OMG WHEN DEAN KILLED KAYLEE FRYE AND I WAS SAD AND SAM WAS MAD AND THEN HE WAS LIKE “haha jk I overreacted it’s not like she was my first kiss and actually a good person or anything”
ooh Charlie…yeah. I feel like any season regulars they have have a better, deeper relationship with Dean than with Sam. It bothers me, because I really do love Sam. He’s an oversized nerd with too much hair and I love him. Here’s my theory on it: the original arc of the show (S1-S5) was more or less from Dean’s perspective. Dean wants to find Dad, Dean sacrifices himself to save Sam, Dean helps Sam overcome Michael, Dean is left alone, Dean struggling with his demons…Sam had some great development too, but it seems like we’ve never gotten away from Dean as the more protagonisty of the two main protagonists (if that makes any sense). But yeah; everybody likes Dean better. Everybody’s still holding a grudge against Sam because he got manipulated into breaking the final seal and everybody conveniently forgets that Dean broke the first one and has also fucked up his fair share of times. Not that Dean isn’t amazing. I just wish that if they were going to sort of spin it as a show about two brothers, they should really make it about both brothers.
Death in all forms is fantastic. You need to read both of those just because he *sort of* lines up w SPN’s version in the best ways. Pratchett’s death has to stand in for Santa Claus one year and it’s the greatest thing ever.
Ah, I’m sorry for the reblog being so late, I typed this out twice before but the mobile app wouldn’t let me reblog :(
Yes!! It would be so good! Again a lot of wasted potential. They need more creative creatives because their current ones aren’t being very creative they are just repeating what they (or others) did before
Oh I’m sorry if I’m ruining it for you. It’s actually understandable. I just watched being highly pessimistic to begin with because Adam glass keeps messing up his episodes and I figured he would again. I wasn’t let down in that aspect.
RIGHT????? It was so pointless! I am pretty sure they just wanted to get through with their share of brother conflict for the season and then didn’t know how else to resolve it. At least not without admitting how awful dean is and that can’t be a thing of course.
yes! And it’s starting to become so very very irritating. Not only because Sam used to be the open and social one while dean was anti social, but also because it’s isolating Sam entirely while dean bonds with everyone.
Also Charlie of all of them should be the most neutral and love both equally, maybe have a geeky role playing connection with dean but also a nerdy research bond with Sam which was reduced to like two lines while deans was rolled out over an entire episode. And same with Krissy for example. She first met Sam and he was actually kind of awesome to her and understood her and was nice while dean was an arrogant dick and yet in the end dean got the big protective brother moments with her while Sam stood around awkwardly and waited in the car!!
You have no idea what I would give for Sam to get a big brother/role model moment (and I’m super sure he would love it too) and idec if that is with Cas or Krissy or whoever just give him someone ;-;
But yes you are probably right with the protagonist theory. The thing is just that it ended up being uneven and I feel like the writers should do something and spin things around for a bit but they just don’t and it’s frustrating!
It would be so glorious if it was about them both again but it somehow developed into the dean show.
On that note it’s also amazing how they obviously ran out of ideas for Sam. At the beginning it was still about his powers and his choices and his past and his destiny and it was amazing but now he just has things happening to him and makes no choices or if he does they get walked over by everyone else and in the same way he went from being a boy who understood what a dangerous unhealthy toxic abusive environment he was in and that he had to get out even if it hurt over letting someone talk him back into that life even if only briefly and with a bit of a change even if that wouldn’t last to just being indifferent and too forgiving and everyone’s puppet. Or is that only me? But it feels like s1 Sam would have shot dean for what he is doing and the current one is so apathetic and just “oh you did what? Well that’s not very good :/ I don’t think I would have done that. Oh well I guess you had your reasons it’s ok” I mean sure if he was broken play that out for a but but that is not it I think. They just have no idea what to do with him. And what they did to him instead is super boring and super questionable (which on that note seems kind of like a better title right now)
Oh my god that sounds amazing! I have too many books to read ahhhh but I want to read that too
Even Marlon Wayans knows what’s up!!
"no homo" the teenage boy whispers as he pulls away from kissing his friend. he gently strokes the other males face "full bi" he adds in a sensuous tone.
[throws a chair] i just want that character to be happy
Bring socks!!!! #homeless #donate #homelessness
As are toiletries!
I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.
Cotton is best. Always cotton
I feel the need to STRESS the necessity of socks. For the event AMOK through Random Acts this year, we went to DTLA to pass out donations. At one point we basically ran out and some of us broke off from the group to buy some more items. We ended up at a convenience store that had two boxes of cotton socks. We bought them and as we were walking one man asked us if we had socks. And we said “Yes.” and gave him a pair and then suddenly we were surrounded by individuals all asking for socks. We were out of socks in a few moments. I can say from personal experience that socks were the most important article of clothing that they wanted.
And as far as toiletries go, tampons. TAMPONS AND PADS. One woman was so excited, gracious, and thankful to receive tampons and pads, as it is a donation that seems to be overlooked. So please, of donations that could be given, while all articles of clothing and food and other necessities are more than welcome, socks and tampons and pads are largely needed.
So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”
Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting.
I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.
I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.
This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.
What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that
