In middle school, we used Arabic numerals in math. In high school, letters from the Latin alphabet started cropping up. In college, we’re using Greek letters. There’s got to be a level of math where hieroglyphics are added to the mix.

Let Me Talk About Werewolves for a Second

Why is it that every werewolf book is this weird testosterone fueled alpha male/female romance thing? 

Like guys. Werewolves are family groups. They are basically big ol’ dog families. Your werewolf family wouldn’t be made up of alpha males fighting each other for dominance and subjugating females. 

If there was a werewolf in your neighborhood, they’d be that family of 10 kids always roughhousing outside and their house is the one all the neighborhood kids go to hang out at because Mr. Werewolf and Mrs. Werewolf are the Cool Parents that their kids find really embarrassing. 

“Wait…Emily?  Aren’t she and her whole family…you know?”

“Don’t believe everything you’ve heard; worst thing that’s ever happened over there is the twins teething on visitors’ shoes.”

Here’s the thing, though.

While the notion of the “alpha wolf” is indeed misguided, being based on observations of wolves in captivity, the dominance thing does happen. And it’s not just the adult males; adult females do it too - but it’s only a thing when wolves who aren’t related by blood end up sharing a habitat.

So consider: by some happenstance, two unrelated werewolf families end up living across the street from one another. Of course they’re not going to start brawling in the streets - they’re civilised people, after all - but that urge to show the other pack who’s boss comes out in other ways, resulting in the two clans getting, like, weirdly competitive about everything.

Imagine the Hallowe’en displays.

Gunnera manicata, the South American Giant Rhubarb. The plants grow easily to a size of 10’ x 10’, and the inner portions of stalks are edible and apparently used in salads. Single leaves can grow over 5’ in diameter!

I ended up having a really interesting conversation with some people at the bus stop today. They were getting out of some sort of ‘clean and sober’ meeting and had starting saying how they were so bored because they didn’t have anything to do, and had to stay at home because all their old friends would pull them back. So I said something like, ‘So this is the time to do all the stuff your parents told you they didn’t have money/time for!’

“Whatcha mean?”

“You know, like when you were five and you REALLY wanted to have that toy or do that thing and you were like, ‘Please mom please I gotta have this I gotta go do this’ and they went ‘Hell no you think I’m paying for that do you want to goddamn EAT?’ “

And this light went on in their eyes. The lady is going to go check thrift stores for an Easybake Oven and I told her about Wilton cake decorating classes. The dude is going to Griffith Park and ride horses, because, ‘I always wanted to be a cowboy, and you can’t drink when you’re on a horse ‘cause you’ll fucking die!’

Fuck it. This is what being an adult is. Sure it’s bills and work and relationships, but damn it, it’s also time to do the things you LIKE.

I signed up for a free class/lecture on Water Gardens. I’m going. It’s time.

someone: do you watch game of thrones?

me: not for years, but I have an exquisitely plotted story in my head about how Sansa Stark serves as lady of winterfell and falls in love with another northern lady but she doesn’t realize it’s Love Love because she’s just like “what very good friends we are :)” and the other woman is really good at resource management and where to put latrines so people don’t get sick, and they work together and are best friends and maybe more?? Yes, more. It’s a fifteen episode miniseries about rebuilding after war, peacetime governance, and gentle gay love, sexuality, and trust. I have the camera angles all planned out. Arya is there, and she has twelve direwolves puppies that cause mischief. At some point, the whole north is like “There Must Always Be A Stark In Winterfell And It’s Fine If She’s A Lesbian” 

someone: can you pass the salt?

me: Episode Three starts with Sansa standing by her window, watching a pack of giggling small children have a snowball fight. She looks cold, austere. She watches Arya fucking pile-drive a six year old into a snow bank. Sansa’s lip quirks. She is Healing. The plot of this episode is dealing with mice in the grain supplies. Sophie Turner is nominated for seven emmys in one season.

ya’ll know that technically it was illegal for gansey to drive the pig to cabeswater with ronan, adam, noah and blue in the car with him? in the state of virginia you’re only allowed to have one (1) non-relative in the car with you if you’re a driver under eighteen. 

also, you know ronan’s door with photocopies of his speeding tickets? if there were more than three within a year he had to re-take drivers ed to be allowed to continue driving. also there’s no way someone wouldn’t have reported him for keeping a pet raven if he took it everywhere with him.

basically? trc was really illegal even without the hit men and the blackmail.

straight culture is that trope in dog movies where the male owner has a crush on a girl and the girl has a female dog that the male owner’s male dog has a crush on

gay porn story lines are really improving these days

I love the “high fives for the women” GIF.

It’s Meet the Spartans, an actual movie that was released in 2008 in case anyone actually thought this was a gay porn.

i forgot kevin sorbo existed after the year 1999

Please help my country, I have a friend that’s studying in Mexico City and she’s terrified, and so are my group of friends and I that live states away from her. I would not like to imagine how other mexicans who have family and friends in MexCit. (and the other states) feel.

If you have a mutual, familiar, close friend, or anyone that you know that resides or is visiting Mexico City (or the other states that were affected like Puebla, Morelos and Queretaro) please, please, please try to contact them. If you can, and make sure they are okay, donate to the organisations listed above so you can help them in this hard time where nature is messing with us.

[IF YOU KNOW MORE ORGANIZATIONS PLEASE DON’T DOUBT IN SHARING THE INFORMATION AND POSTING THEM, PLEASE]


A mis hermanos Mexicanos que estén leyendo esto, aquellos que se encuentren en las áreas y estados afectados, ayuden a aquellos que los necesitan, estén a salvo a toda costa, mis pensamientos están con ustedes.

Para aquellos que viven en otros estados del país, aquí les dejo una imagen de la cuenta bancaria que la Cruz Roja abrió para las donaciones.

Igualmente, donen a las organizaciones que publiqué anteriormente en los enlaces para ayudar a nuestro pueblo.

FUERZA MÉXICO, SI PUDIMOS HACE 32 AÑOS, PODREMOS LEVANTARNOS DE NUEVO.

in an attempt to appeal to the pathos of my potential employers, i wrote my resume using the same format a no-kill shelter would use to describe a geriatric dog

i am a gentle, mild-mannered young man looking for a forever job to spend the rest of my years in. though i may not be the most talented and versatile person on the job market, i’m the perfect employee for someone out there, and that someone just might be you(r company)!

I’m a very special girl who has captured the hearts of all our volunteers, but just keeps getting overlooked when it comes to that forever boss to call my own! Could it be you? I can use Excel and the toilet. Vaccinated.
