Leonard Maltin! #fantasticfest is incredible. Also, catch me and @kumailn doing The Meltdown tomorrow at Highball. It’s free to non badge holders, some come see a fun free comedy show!

"Almost every person, when we show them how they’re influenced, say, “[That] wouldn’t influence me.” They think they’re smarter than a bowl, smarter than a serving spoon. It’s amusing. Even with experts, nutrition experts, they say, “I know better.” But look at data. Show bartenders [that] they serve 30 per cent more liquor in short, wide tumblers than tall highball glasses, they deny it. We all think we’re uniquely unaffected by these things."

So here’s the story…Tuesday morning Hannah followed me on Twitter…I of course freaked out but then I noticed she didn’t follow like ANYONE else who may be a fan…I bring it up at the NoFilter show meet and greet but I think she was too drunk and exhausted to know what I was saying.. 

So I’m here with her again and I casually say…”Yeah so thanks again for following me on Twitter..”

And here we get the first picture of her being like “the fuck I followed a fan…?”

Then she remembers and says “I think I was drunk and just going through whatever and just happened to follow you because I really don’t remember doing that haha”

Then in the next picture I say “well at least we’re closer haha”

And, shown in the third picture, she laughed and said “aww you’re right we’re like best friends now!” As I slowly die inside…lol

Then we took some glorious pictures shared more laughs and sincere thoughts and well it was one of the best moments ever…

Thank you Hannah and Grace and Mamrie as well for the best two nights of my life you guys are my inspiration and its been a dream to meet and talk with you guys. I love you all <3

highball-flying || The College Years

Senna hated that her schedule was picked out for her. Last time she ever transfered colleges. She had the most horrible blocks of the most horrible classes and professors. Every morning she had to wake up at the asscrack of dawn and try to get into the showers before that night’s left overs starting coming home and hogging them. It was a rare occasion that the girl could take a shower without being overwhelmed by the smell of vomit. She hated it. 

Her first class of the day was Biology. Science was never her strong suit… but when you’re a Criminal Justice major… you have to take them. She sat through it patiently and attentively, making sure to take detailed notes for the test next class. She was determined to pass. She had too or she would have to drop. 

When class was over, Senna decided to skip her Philosophy class to get lunch. (Something she couldn’t do usually). As she entered the dining hall, she groaned. It was crowded. Not a table in sight. She hoped one would open up as she got her food, but as she returned from the line, there was no such luck. She groaned again and began looking for at least a table where she could sit with someone who was alone. She was friendly enough. 

Senna approached the boy sitting alone in the corner of the dining hall and cleared her throat. “Hey… weird… but… can I sit with you? There’s kinda no more tables?”

Watch on crispysnakes.tumblr.com

Highball demonstrating a defensive bite.  There’s no grabbing and coiling, or even any real power behind the jaws as they don’t want to hold onto you (they want to scare you away, after all!).  Most of the punch comes from the force of the strike and not the teeth, which in this case are so small that they only barely break the skin.        

(Highball is less inclined to bite as Lemon Drop, but will do so on occasion.  Both are babies and this is typical baby behavior, elicited intentionally so people can see what a defensive bite is.)
