If we want to send/receive a card to/from France, do we have to speak French? I wouldn't mind getting a card in a different language and decoding it.

Nah. Most people do English - and if they can understand my convoluted Holiday Card Exchange instructions enough to sign up I assume they can read basic English in a card, so no worries if that’s your only language.

But feel free to write in non-English if that’s what you feel more comfortable in. Some people request certain countries because they want to read/write in other languages. And there’s always the reliable Google Translate :p

I don’t entirely mind, because a pretty doll is a pretty doll, but I’m quite “meah” about the “party all day every day” shtick EAH is pulling. With the exception of the Signature line(s), Date Night, and Mirror Beach, all doll lines are either about a party or a lead-up to it. LD, GF, T, HTP, SU, and now TTW are all party-themed or -focussed, Not to say MH isn’t party-heavy, whether now or in its first two years, but even putting the fashion-focussed lines aside, there were the Signature line(s), Go Team!!!, GB, Classroom, and Skull Shores to counter DotD and S1600. DT can go with either selection depending how much party weight you think a slumber party has. It doesn’t really matter for the point where to put DT.

Add to that that it seems the TV special lineup appears to be rolling from one party to another (LD->THD->T->SU->New Chapter Day? Apple mentioned it in Thronecoming and that probably isn’t for nothing) and it’s like, okay, the holidays in the Fairytale World are all very important because they are organized to match the nature of that world, but isn’t there some other excuse to get the dolls’ context going? A Classroom or Go Team!!! line would do wonders right now to make the dolls seem more… purposeful, you know?

I’m sorry that you had to see this pictures, but have you ever heard about the Surabaya Zoo? It’s the biggest zoo in Indonesia and it is, basically, a place for animals to die in the most horrible ways. They don’t have vets, they hardly ever clean the place, staff sells animal’s food, some of them are in really small cages…

You see the giraffe on the picture? It ate 20kg of plastic bags cause it was starving and all there was to eat was garbage. About 25 animals die per month.

The government doesn’t care about the zoo and ONGs have problems to release the animals cause most of them are not in healthy conditions to just go back to their true homes.

SIGN THE PETITION TO SHUT DOWN SURABAYA ZOO! Help to make a change. Reblog it. Post it on all your social medias. Invite your friends to join. Tell everyone you know about it.

anonymous asked:

when will you send the addresses?

Working on it right now, a lot more people signed up this year which is great but it slows down the process a bit :(

I’ll make a post when I’m done sending addresses out so you’ll know if I missed you or not.

If you really need yours ASAP for whatever reason just let me know and I can get them to you sooner

“We had just gotten off tour with Mudhoney, and I decided to stage-dive. I was wearing a dress and I didn’t realize what I was engendering in the audience. It was a huge audience and they were kind of going ape-shit. So I just dove off the stage, and suddenly, it was like my dress was being torn off of me, my underwear was being torn off of me, people were putting their fingers inside of me and grabbing my breasts really hard, screaming things in my ears like “pussy-whore-cunt”. When I got back onstage I was naked. I felt like Karen Finley. But the worst thing of all was that I saw a photograph of it later. Someone took a picture of me right when this was happening, and I had this big smile on my face like I was pretending it wasn’t happening. So later I wrote a song called “Asking For It” based on the whole experience. I can’t compare it to rape because it’s not the same. But in a way it was. I was raped by an audience, figuratively, literally, and yet, was I asking for it?”

“The first time I met Josh I was seventeen and he was twenty-two. It was on the Lollapalooza tour and I loved Kyuss, and I saw him and knew the band had broke up so we just started talking about it and we took a picture together. I was such a little fan. We didn’t see each other again for seven years. He told people we made out. It was really cute, he was telling Mark Lanegan that he made out with me, of course he didn’t though. He told me he’d always had a crush on me… It was meant to be.” - Brody Dalle
