"Sometimes, someone says something really small, and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart." — Angela Chase, My So-Called Life
This is one of my favorite lines, and I think of it when I am blessed with a moment in which someone, quite unexpectedly and unbidden, says something so little to me that I didn’t know I needed to hear (which usually causes me to break into tears.)
Thank you! It was a complete spur of the moment decision and i’m really happy with how it came out. (and i want to tell you that it was your talk of jumping into your fandom craft project that got me back on the crafting horse.)
That is GORGEOUS. Also, you’re making me miss beading. Anyway, you should come to Parkscon and we can all craft together!
I would LOVE that. Although I’d probably need to bring a trailer to carry all my crafting supplies. (I get interested in something and buy ALL THE THINGS.)
My beading skills basically involve putting bead on a single string. Or headpin — as I made a bunch of earrings as well. Which I need to give away, as I don’t have pierced ears. I will add them to my collection of things I need to send out :)
I love, love, love that the Parks and Rec fandom is so crafty. You all inspire me so much (even though I have yet to mail out all — or, you know, any — of the presents I made for my crafty project).
I’ve been doing a lot of simple beadwork in the past few days, and the other night took out my hematite necklace. A long time ago, a boy who broke my heart gave it to me — I love hematite but I never wear it, partly because it feels a little too dark and partly because I always think of him when I see it.
I decided to take it apart and made something new and lovely.
Wafer rolls are my crack. Vanilla wafers, chocolate wafers, striped wafers — i don’t care. As long as they’re filled with something chocolatey, I will eat an entire container in about a day. If I ever fall into a coma, please bring these to me and I’ll probably wake up within seconds and house the whole tin in ten minutes.
Thank you all! It literally JUST hit me that I’m doing this and it’s LIVE. I’m pretty good in conversation but there’s def a comfort in TAPED CONVERSATIONS that can be edited! But I’ve been listening to Moncrieff all morning and he seems lovely so hopefully I won’t be in panic mode so much ;)
it wasn’t me! I only send steath tea and chocolate and owls
THIS IS TRUE! you are by far the stealthiest tea giver i know. even if due to the meds, i can only half-blame you and your stealth for being convinced that Adagio had bugged my hospital room and knew that i said nice things about them and sent me tea.
I’m sitting outside, enjoying the beautiful night weather and heard a big crunch in the woods a few houses down. My immediate thought: “oh fuck, is the bear back? I hope it’s just a bunch of deer. It better not be that damn skunk.”
Yes, I live in the suburbs.
(When I was young, my big fear was coming home at night and finding raccoons hanging out in front of my garage. The lady next door used to feed a family of them.)
How can people see Emma Watson being verbally attacked online and threatened with hacked nudes being released by men because of her speech on gender equality and still think we don’t need feminism. It’s not women who make men out to be some evil creatures, you guys do that well enough on your own.
Today I shared my intense and unabashed love for two movies: Run Lola Run and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. I feel like I should write more on that, but I found the Lola soundtrack on my computer and I’m enthralled all over again.
2 Female police detectives with a professional relationship and neither of them is Angie Harmon.
One of them actually dates a different guy each episode and no one has a cow about it.
One male character. He’s supporting cast/designated love interest. Not an asshole.
No guest appearances by Bill O’Reilly. Since Angie Harmon does not star in this show.
Fall TV is still 2 weeks away and you’re bored and face it, you’ve seen Downton, Sherlock and A:TLA 14 times since Korra ended and you need new fare.
DISCLAIMER: Viewing this program may cause you to believe that women can be competent in a work environment outside of Manhattan fashion magazines, and get on without being ordered around by an obnoxious male character who is SO BOLD because he doesn’t believe in political correctness.
emphasis mine. trufax, all of it.
I changed the title, though — it’s not streaming on Netflix anymore, but the DVDs are available through them. It *is* streaming on Acorn.
omg, our novel came out today. wanna help a girl out by spending three bucks on a book?
it’s based on something that actually happened, a real life love story gone terribly, horribly wrong. you can ask me stuff about it, i just can’t reveal certain details because the IRL catherine is still alive and doesn’t wanna be outed. just a warning—we don’t shy from the dark things that happened between these two teenagers in love; we actually downplayed a lot of it because it seemed way too fantastical for fiction. IRL thomas had several psychological diagnoses and got increasingly erratic as time wore on; cath endured it for years, so be warned that it gets pretty dark. there’s a lot of drug use and rude language, too.
we feel it’s important to tell stories like this, though. if our writer’s page manages to get off the ground, we’ll be posting some of the real documents we used (there are boxes) to help write the story, like the letters thomas wrote while involuntarily staying in various mental institutions, and maybe some of the newspaper clippings or even his death certificate. we’ll see what can be dug up!
anyway, thanks for helping spread word about this! if you’re poor like me, shoot me a message. i’ll email it to you. you can maybe buy it later when you’ve got three bucks to spare. i’m dead serious.
