So am I the only one who sees a video and it’s got a nondescript thumbnail and an absolute MESS of text beneath it full of comments like
holy shit you need to hit play!
this is the best video ever!
and just wishes for the love of all that is holy on tumblr that SOMEONE WOULD JUST LEAVE A MINOR DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THE VIDEO IS?! it’s all over tumblr and even something like “what a cute kitty” or “wow look at him play the piano like that” is far better than about eleven blockquotes all saying basically “YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS RIGHT NOW”.
I am not calling out ANYBODY whatsoever! I just… wonder if I’m alone being mildly annoyed by this sometimes?
note: yahoo has not actually purchased tumblr yet, they have just made the 1.1 billion dollar offer official. the offer needs to be accepted before anything’s final.
i’m curious as to what will happen if it goes through because tumblr was already on a decline (IMO) and yahoo is kind of notorious for ruining whatever it buys. total meltdown? complete disaster? surprising turnaround? who knows.
memes get exponentially dumber when you explain them
- Sarahfu: have you seen that "drop it" sugarpeas/catbug meme thing?
- P-RO: hmmm I dont think so
- Sarahfu: ah well
- Sarahfu: a character from a show is a catbug named catbug
- Sarahfu: in a scene it's holding a bowl of sugarpeas and it yells SUGARPEAS
- Sarahfu: it gets told to DROP IT
- Sarahfu: it says OKAY and drops the bowl
- Sarahfu: ...wow tumblr memes are dumb
WAIT, PEOPLE DON’T SHIP THIS? …HOW?
Haha, lots of people were hoping she’d get together with the spymaster dude instead! Which is valid; the Aly/Nawat dynamic isn’t one many people like, but … I really love Aly/Nawat, hahaha. I just love snarky, BUSINESS FIRST KISSING LATER ladies for whom love is nothing but a game, and the goofy, weird, lovestruck and emotionally supportive dudes who trip over their feet around them. That’s all… :’(
I didn’t even know I had a thing for that until you put it into words, but. Uh, yeah. I do. NAWAT IS ADORABLE.
LOOOOOOOOOOL. WELCOME TO… MY MOST EMBARRASSING ROMANTIC KINK… I’d find werewolf romances more interesting if the werewolves acted more like actual wolves and/or were confused as fuck by human society than if they were just, you know, aggressive people (which is how most writers write werewolves, ugh) (and most of them haven’t bothered with the basic research that would reveal that wolf packs are actually family structures, e.g. parents and their pups, not the alpha-beta-omega crap popularized by scientists in the ’50s grabbing a bunch of unrelated wolves and shoving them into a single space).
I’m kind of worried. I ordered a shirt from WhatPumpkin on the 4th and still haven’t gotten an email confirmation. My paypal does show a receipt, and that I made the purchase, but it’s still a bit unnerving to not have a confirmation email after ten days. Idk, maybe I’m being a little paranoid about this, but it is for my second ever cosplay, and I really want to go through with it this time. I wonder if there’s anything I can do to find out?
I’m actually kind of tired of fake gif sets. Like it was cool the first few times when it was used dynamically; but now it seems like every gif is getting this treatment, and they don’t really look that convincing. When this fad started, I did like the small ones that looked as if they were skipping from gif to gif, they were simple and convincing. I’m not saying that people should stop making them, it just seems overused is all.
and rocketorca and geebonla bought me an ice cream cake & bailey’s and i still have more presents coming from my relatives and ryan is still asleep but i’m sure he has something planned and i’ve got something fun coming from some of my other friends and good god you people are spoiling me jesus christ
what i’m trying to say is thank you and you’re all wonderful people and i’m so privileged to have you in my life and
i’m going to borrow sarahfu’s tag for a minute here k
Bad day at work
You know, I try to be pretty optimistic at work and an all around nice girl. And so I tend to put my work before my needs I guess in a way. Anyways today was bad because it’s been super hot this week, like 111 degrees today, and I was the only courtesy clerk during the whole closing shift for about 7 hours. And honestly I would mind this, but with it being so hot I was the only one there to bring the carts in. I think I got dehydrated even though I was drinking a lot of water. I had about five water bottles, but near the end of my shift I started feeling really sick. I got one of those horrible migraines where you get those lines of light across your vision. I even ended up vomiting, although it was only water. Ugh I still feel bad even though I’ve been off of work for an hour and a half. I think I just need to sleep now. Hopefully I’ll feel better in the morning. Ahhh well goodnight tumblr.
YOU KNOW THIS IS COMING BECAUSE YOU'RE SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO ME. BUT. ANDY/JAMES. PLZ 'N THANK YOU.
HENCE WHY I’M PLAYING THE MUSIC TO HELP MYSELF BECAUSE WELL YOU WRITE ALL THE FIC FOR A REASON
- who cooks normally?
James, because he doesn’t really trust Andy around fire. Or knives.
- how often do they fight?
There’s no really measurable *frequency* to their fights, just like there’s really no consistency in their lives to begin with. They don’t fight too often; and when they do it’s usually because of something on a hunt/adventure.
- what do they do when they’re away from each other?
Every once in a while Andy and his parents decide it’s best that James stay behind when they have to go jump into the TARDIS and help some planet somewhere. Other times the distress call comes up when James is out and Andy just has to leave a note for James.
Andy usually is too busy during these trips to really miss James that much at first, but if it gets to be too long he mopes.
When they haven’t been gone too long, James usually just busies himself around the house, focuses on his schoolwork, and waits for them to get back. The longer they’re gone, however, the less focused and busy James gets; he mopes a little, watches marathons of those silly romantic comedies Andy loves, takes pointless naps. If they’re gone for an especially long time, he starts to worry. There was that one time they said they’d be gone for just a few hours and didn’t make it back for two weeks, during which James had worked himself into a frenzy, stopped going to school, and just spent all day curled up in Andy’s bed, waiting for them.
(ONLY I WOULD BRING ANGST TO A FLUFF MEME.)
- nicknames for each other?
Not really, though Andy will affectionately called James “Jay” every once in a while, especially when he’s sleepy. James never has the heart to correct him.
- who is more likely to pay for dinner?
They both get sort of an “allowance” from Sam and Eleven (since it’s pretty impossible for either of them to hold steady jobs, especially with school), so it doesn’t really matter who pays. James usually steps up and takes the check, though, because Andy always says he’s saving up for “something special”—something he refuses to tell James about. (James will eventually find out what that is, and why Andy took so long to save up for it.)
- who steals the covers at night?
Andy. All night, every night. Thankfully, James always has the constellation quilt stashed away underneath the bed, so he never goes cold.
- what would they get each other for gifts?
Depending on the occasion, James is more inclined to get small trinkets that have meaning to Andy or both of them. Andy likes to make his gifts—and make them spectacles. He’ll write a song or get a group of friends to help put on a little surprise concert for James. There doesn’t even need to be a reason, he’ll just do it because James inspires him.
who kissed whom first?
KAYLA THAT’S UP TO YOU SORRY.
- who made the first move?
AGAIN, ON YOU XD
- who remembers things?
They both do. Andy just likes to make his celebrations more public, while James is more partial to small, intimate reminders of the occasion.
- who curses more?
Andy. He knows more exotic, alien curses anyway.
- what would they do if the other one was hurt?
James always feels a little powerless whenever Andy is hurt, so he tends to take up the “bedside worrier” position. He’ll sit with Andy for hours, makes sure Andy has everything James could possibly get him, gives Sam and Eleven progress reports. In the case of immediate injury, though, James gets super defensive—Andy even jokingly calls him “my little soldier”, lovingly mocking the sheer dedication and force with which James will fight through any obstacles to get Andy safe. (WHUT)
Andy turns into a giant ball of worry when James is sick or hurt to a small degree—whether it’s a trip down the stairs or a small cut on an adventure, he turns into quite the mother hen. It always makes James roll his eyes and call Andy “mom”, but he really appreciates it. Andy definitely takes after his not-mum whenever James gets seriously hurt. He gets angry, mostly, but it’s not the rash anger from his human side. He gets calm, and quiet, and deadly. He acts like he could easily track down whatever or whoever hurt James and reduce them to a pile of ash, knows he could; but he manages to restrain himself because he remembers that James getting help is always more important. So while James being injured might bring out the less-than-human part of Andy, he also has a firm hold on his humanity.
I WROTE MOST OF THIS WHILE MY BLOOD SUGAR WAS SUPER HIGH AND MY HEAD FELT LIKE A BOMB ABOUT TO EXPLODE BUT I HOPE YOU LIKE.
Eeeeeee! I’m so excited I finally got into my class! ASU you were like a tough nut to crack but I’m finally enrolled in my last class ever! (so long as I pass it, which I should….) but I’m so happy cause that was the most horrible process I had to go through for just one class. Haha ahhhh…. Also, on a side note, I still really want to finish that 30 day challenge thing. But I still haven’t bought a new notebook :( Maybe I will tomorrow or Thursday. We’ll see. Anyways, have a good night/morning/whatever time of day it is for you, tumblr!
