hrathe3rd asked: HAVE YOU EVER MET DOUG JONES??

blinkpinkinc:

NO

BUT I WANT TO

I REALLY

REALLY

WANT TO

ACK I MISSED THIS!

IF YOU GET THE CHANCE

DO IT DO IT DO IT

DUDE IS ONE OF THE SWEETEST GUYS AROUND

HE PROMISED TO HUG EVERYONE AT THE THING I WENT TO, AND THEN PROCEEDED TO DO JUST THAT

AND DUDE GIVES WONDERFUL HUGS

Tags: blinkpinkinc but seriously he gives fantastic hugs and I'm one hell of a huggy person (I know hugs) and it's not often that people can pull off hugs that sincere and warm when it comes to strangers

  28. Cast in Shadow by Michelle Sagara

update: kate elliot is not actually a woman of color and i’m confused as to how she ended up on this list :(

SECOND update: after so many reblogs debating as to whether or not kara dalkey is actually a woman of color (i had assumed from her features and work that she was mixed-race japanese) she has been removed from this list. which brings it down to 28. however i’d like to thank everyone for putting this list out there and giving these authors the attention they deserve :’)

Questions for tonight:

Why am I hot?

  • the a/c is shit here and the rooms have gotten unseasonably warm again?
  • my body is shutting down and moving into sleep mode?
  • I’ve had my computer sitting on my lap for too long?
  • I’ve got a fever? (please say no, please say no)

Who would call my parents’ house, ask for me, but then hang up before leaving a message or asking for my cell number?

Does anyone have oil of oregano they’d be willing to share?

For those in the know, is there a meeting tomorrow, if so could you send me a text a bit before? I’m pretty that how well I feel is proportional to how long I’ve slept in, so I’m gonna try and sleep for as long as possible tonight (even tho I’ll still land up waking up at 5am again…….)

I love that Spock’s idea of creating a loud diversion is to insult Chekov’s tricorder readings.

Well, for a (half-)Vulcan, “your tricorder readings are totally inefficient” most likely equals human “FUCK YOUR TRICORDER READINGS OMFG CHEKOV ARE YOU EVEN REAL”.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Newt Scamander

I look back across the years to the seven-year-old wizard who spent hours in his bedroom dismembering Horklumps and I envy him the journeys to come. […] That grubby Horklumps-encrusted boy would track, as he grew up, the beasts described in the following pages.

tricksterity:

the worst things to ever happen to fashion:

  • fake pockets
  • making every single shirt see through
  • seriously why does it have to be see through
  • what is the fucking point i just have to wear another tank top or cami underneath it
  • it literally defeats the purpose of being a shirt
  • and every single shirt is see through these days this annoys me more than fake pockets and trust me that is an issue

"There was the button from the episode… Out of Gas. I gave it to Joss. It turned out it was at a good point because he was fighting for the movie to get made. I didn’t know it but he was hitting a lot of roadblocks. I gave him the button and I wrote out on a card, ‘When your miracle gets here…’”
