I just started Gilded Cages and, my lord, what have you done to me? I hit "Have I been such a wicked influence on you already?", squealed like a toddler, and dropped my laptop on my foot. Seriously though, this is delicious and I look forward to next Thursday with unladylike alacrity.

Apparently *I’ve* been a wicked influence on *you* …. I’m ok with that. ;)

I hope your foot is okay, though. I will try to make Thursday come more quickly as recompense.

So I was brushing my teeth and thinking about how they were gonna bring Wally in, right? And by now I’ve already decided that they’re def going to bring him in as 18 or older, so Kid Flash doesn’t really fit. I figure he’ll go by Impulse or something of the like

Anyways, I start thinking about how’d he react if someone suggested his name be Kid Flash, and the first thing that pops into my mind is that episode of Spongebob where Barnacle Boy turned evil because he was tired of being treated like a child and insisted on being called “Barnacle MAN” and j esus christ wha thave i done

Australia may have won the final, but New Zealand won the World Cup

I am disappointed that we lost, but I am still proud of my boys. They are the most successful NZ one day team in history. They played aggressive, bold, entertaining cricket throughout the tournament, and they played it like gentlemen.

Brendon McCullum made a point of going over to shake Michael Clarke’s hand when Clarke got out, despite the fact we were facing a heavy defeat in the world cup final and all our players had been sledged all the way off the field. That is how cricket should be, and that is how people should be. You congratulate someone on a successful career or for a good contest. 

We were unbeaten throughout the tournament until the final, in a series of games that were all more interesting to watch than the final, and not just because we were winning. But the point is, our team was so successful, without ever bragging or belittling the opposition.

The semifinal against South Africa was one of the greatest games I have ever had the pleasure of watching.

Brendon’s post-final interview was gracious, composed and likeable. He is rightly proud of the Black Caps, despite losing the final.

Aspects of the world cup NZ have won:

- Niceness

- Attractiveness

- % Gain in public support

- Team involved in most exciting games

- Most handshakes/hugs with opposition

- Most deflection by players asked to comment on their own excellent performance: “What a great 237!” “It was a team effort.”

- Popularising superman-style boundary saves

- Complimenting the opposition in post match interviews

- Most slips

- Best superhuman one-handed boundary catches by glasses-wearing 36-year-olds

- Most spectacular fielders to watch. All that rolling around.

- Least pain showed by a captain who nearly has his arm broken

- Best beards

- Best cheekbones

- Longest unbeaten run

- 237

-77 off 25

- Full member nation that had the most fun

londowney replied to your post: *sees a post demonizing bened*ct that …

I HAD THE SAME THING HAPPEN W RDJ TODAY. what is with today.

a lot tend to try and justify their hatred towards an actor with a large rabid fanbase by saying the actor is a “horrible person” when in reality they just. dont like the fanbase and want to shut them up bc they find it annoying.

like if you have your reasons for hating an actor and theyre valid or not valid like ofc thats fine and yeah they should def be addressed if it’s true, but please dont try and actively bring other people down and act superior

i guess what just really got me mad is they tried to cover their opinion in SJ jargon. Like, “People are allowed to be upset that he is playing Dr. Stran*ge because he’s actually really problematic, LOOK: *quotes a yfip page*” like oh my goddddddddddddddddd sorry for the incoherent rant just kept typing and it wouldnt stop
