Okay, but like, how much food does the FAHC have to keep in the penthouse? Cause like consider: There’s usually at least 6 or 7 of them at all times, often with guests and other members coming over all the time. That’s a lot of fucking food.
There would be a ton of take out and going out and stuff
But also box after box of pancake mix
Geoff buys three boxes of Lucky Charms every week and they are always gone by Wednesday.
On top of the Lucky Charms are Cheerios, Captain Crunch, Raisin Bran (Jack), and whatever else is put on The List that week
There are no Coco Puffs.
Gavin doesn’t like to talk about it.
On top of that there are pop-tarts, juice by the gallon, sausage, eggs, the works
Lunch meats and sandwich stuff fill the fridge
There are so many different types of chips and pretzels and snack foods in that one apartment that at the beginning of the week it looks like a convenience store.
There’s, of course, ingredients for whatever family meals Geoff has planned out that includes steak and potatoes, barbecue, pasta and sauce, etc.
There’s lots of fruit because everyone will eat some so long as Jack cuts it up and puts it out. Rarely will anyone eat any if it’s just there.
Vegetables…. are another story.
Geoff, Michael, Gavin, and sometimes even Ryan will turn them down, claiming that they did not get this far in life to be force fed carrots
Ray eats what is in front of him.
Ray is an endless vacuum of a human being who does not complain at all ever when provided with free food.
Michael is pickier, but eats just about as much and is never one to turn down a food related challenge
Gavin is the pickiest of them all, but what he does like he’ll eat a lot of
Ryan’s not too picky, but he’s more conscientious about what he eats than the lads are, not one to devour an entire bag of Doritos in five seconds flat
Jeremy is Ray’s biggest contender, but actually eats neatly and, like Ryan, is a bit less willing to shove just anything in his gob, though he’s more partial to snack foods than Ryan is
Jack likes to watch what she eats and make everyone healthy snacks. She also likes to secretly eat any left overs (rare occasion) and other treats as 2 AM snacks on a regular basis.
Geoff likes his own cooking and eats like a regular human being instead of like the animals that have clearly invaded his home and taken to eating all of his fucking food
There is a universally accepted rule that if you put a sticky note on something saying it’s yours, it’s yours and no one is allowed to touch it
Absolutely everyone has agreed to this rule
Absolutely no one follows this rule
Absolutely everyone gets pissed off when the rule is broken despite having broken it a hundred times themselves
At the end of the day, if you want something to be purchased on Jack and Geoff’s weekly grocery run you put it on The List
The List is god
If it is not on The List Geoff isn’t buying it
If it’s not specific enough, Geoff isn’t buying it
If Geoff thinks you shouldn’t have it, regardless of being on The List or not, you will not get it
It’s a regular punishment to have to bring all of the groceries up yourself if you’ve done something especially shitty that week
Gavin and Michael get that privilege more often than not

Six years later: When Viktor learns that his days are numbered, there’s only one thing on his mind: He needs to make sure that Yuuri will be okay. For this goal he’s willing to sacrifice everything; his happiness, his sanity - even Yuuri love. But that’s not how relationships work, Vitya … (Or: The stupid things we do for love)
I finally managed to get chapter 2 of this thing out. Hallelujah! If you like, I’d greatly appreciate giving kudos / leaving a comment on ao3. Seriously, it’s the comments that keep me going …
A storm is coming. Viktor can feel it like a low electric tingle on his skin; can smell the faint metallic stench of ozone hanging heavy in the air. It’s making him restless. He’s tossing and turning on his side of the bed, bunching up the sheets in the process.
But the tension he feels isn’t caused by the sudden change of weather alone. It’s everything. This whole fucked-up situation he has to deal with, is weighing down on him like a rock. And he’s starting to overthink things.
What if he’s wrong? What if this whole stupid plan is just one big mistake?
There’s still time to make things right. He can still tell Yuuri. Can do it right now. Shake him awake and tell him to his face, bleary from sleep, that their days as a couple are numbered. That he, Viktor, will do exactly what he always promised him he’d never do:
Leave him behind.
Not that Viktor has much of a choice - or any at all. Live every day of your life as if it were the last - trite but true. Unfortunately, you never really allow for the very realistic possibility settle in your brain. Dying is for old people. Sick people, unfortunate souls who have some metaphysical score to settle or just a very messed up karma.
Except maybe that’s what it all comes down to in the end.
Meeting Yuuri was probably - no, with absolute certainty the very best thing that ever happened to him. And he always wondered, in a way, just for how long this insane happiness was going to last. He wondered when the fuck he’d started sounding like the old babushka that used to sit in front of the Kopeyka , blathering about the good old days to everyone who would listen to her. All he could think now, another truism, was how nothing in life comes for free.
And now he’s been presented with the bill.
Suddenly, Yuuri starts to stir next to him; his beautiful face contorted into a frown. He’s thrashing around now, throwing off the sheets he’s been curled into. His hands are reaching out, his fingers clenching, opening, clenching. A quiet whimper of distress leaves his throat and Viktor can’t take it. It’s too much, and he can feel tears burn in the back of his eyes.
Gently, he cups Yuuri’s face, strokes his soft cheeks with his thumbs. “Yuuri,” he whispers. “Yuuri, it’s alright. You’re safe. I will keep you safe …”
Viktor doesn’t know if it’s the sound of his voice that does it, but Yuuri’s eyes fly open all of a sudden, and before he’s even realizing what’s happening, he’s all but crawling into Viktor’s lap. Little hiccups are sending tremors down his body, Viktor can feel them. Yuuri’s pressing closer, impossibly closer, like he wants to crawl into Viktor, become a part of him; become one.
Unsure what else to do, Viktor strokes his hair, massages the little bumps beneath the skin with his fingertips. Suddenly, the quiet of the night is disturbed by the plitter-platter of rain falling onto the roof of their apartment-building.
Yuuri lets out a shaky breath, an apologetic half-smile on his lips that doesn’t meet his eyes when he looks up at Viktor. “Just a bad dream,” he explains, his voice a little hoarse and his eyes a little too shiny to conceal how deeply shaken he still is.
It feels like Viktor’s heart is squeezed together by a iron fist. He loves this man. He loves him more than he could ever put into words. Yuuri is his everything, and the worst thing is that he knows his feelings are reciprocated. They’re like the tides and the moon - one simply cannot exist without the other. And he can’t help but wonder what will happen, once one of them is irrevocably gone.
Cupping Yuuri’s face with his hands, he tilts his head just a fraction, so he can brush his lips over Yuuri’s. It’s just that for a moment. The soft press of lips. Breaths hitched in tight throats. Until suddenly, it’s not anymore, and turns into something else. Something needier, with a sharp edge of desperation …
This one might be cheating because the series
has not actually been released yet, however, if the “pilot” issues of
Superman (10 and 11) are any indication, this one is a fun one. Its great
reading the banter between Jon and Damian. I haven’t read much with Damian
previously, and Jon is the newest Superboy, but I’m liking both. The dynamic
between Jon and Damian is great and fun to read. Especially since it carries
the dynamic over from their respective parents. I met Peter Tomasi at NYCC who
was also enthusiastic about the new series, and I am too especially since he’s
writing the book. Right now, the book is looking as a good and funny read.
What I learned in 2016, good and bad:
1. Everyone knows something you don’t know. It’s always nice to sit and talk with new people.
2. Life doesn’t revolve around love alone. (Heck yeah, a hopeless romantic just got this figured out in her late 23.)
3. Life doesn’t revolve around you alone. Life is more fun when you think less of yourself and more of what you can do to help other people.
4. You’re not always happy, and you don’t always have to be. There are more layers in your life to experience other than just happiness.
5. Documentaries are pretty awesome.
6. Being an adult is not growing old and doing the same thing you’ve been doing years before. The older & more experienced you are in life, the more tasks you have to juggle, and you’re becoming a very overwhelmed clown, just like every other adult you see.
7. Not everyone is equally nice to you.
8. But that won’t stop you from being equally nice to everyone.
9. Always, put family first.
10. Just because someone comes into your life, doesn’t mean they always stay.
11. And there is no use being sad over that, because maybe they don’t have the space to stay when all the rooms in your life is occupied for something else.
12. Sometimes work sucks. With all of that pressure, remember to stay true. Remember why you started, and create things out of passion not money. Remember to have an impact.
13. Try your best and don’t waste your time thinking about things you can’t change.
14. In every situation, always choose the kindest thing to do.
15. You started to enjoy working out, healthy diet, cleaning, and saving up more than ever.
16. Also, staying in is always cheaper than going out.
17. Online dating is kind of lame.
18. Have fun on your own and don’t mind anybody’s business. (your gossipy friend is the toxic.)
19. Always be there when your friend needs you. Except at times when they need your comment on the latest gossip they just heard, it’s a waste of your precious time.
20. You don’t always win.
21. You can be strong and soft at the same time. Sometimes it’s good to be outspoken, sometimes it’s wiser to keep your opinion on your own.
22. You can always google things.
23. It’s always good to start any relationship platonically.
24. The right person will come at the right time, so focus on building yourself and being someone, instead of being someone’s.
25. No matter how many more realisations I will have in the future, I will always be a naive person. But this is what keeps me optimistic and not bitter when life goes the other way.
1. Vegeta never been in the Kame House. Not even in GT. 2. Vegeta’s standing position is not meaningless. He doesn’t just stand keeping hands folded. (Ofc he does that too, but while battling.) It’s hedging position to ribs and it’s best place to start blocking fast. (Vegeta’s hedging position and normal folded arms is here to show what I mean.)
3. Actually Vegeta is King already, but he doesn’t claim to be King because he never got his coronation. Plus it is his way to show respect to his fallen father. 4. Yajirobe and Vegeta never met after Yajirobe cutted Vegeta’s tail off… 5. …And his tail never grew back. Someone says it’s because #18 tread to his tailbone. Others says because he was already adult. 6. Vegeta is one of the strongests in universe. Still he fears worms more than anything and hates slimy things. 7. Vegeta’s legendary “It’s over 9000!” -scream was Ocean Dub’s mistake. Originally it’s over 8000.
8. Vegeta calls Goku Goku only 8 times in whole Dragonball series (Z and GT). Usually if someone doesn’t understand whom he speaks. 9. Vegeta is only 5 years older than Goku. 10. If we start think more deeply, Vegeta have possibility to transfrom SSJ3. Saiyans can reach new Super Saiyan transformation while power level is enough. So if he’s able to transform to SSJGSSJ, he should able to transform to SSJ3 too. 11. Really Vegeta have won their fight with Goku. It was when they fought first time on Earth. If someone hadn’t come to help, Vegeta would kill Goku. Still he doesn’t count it to wins. 12. Vegeta’s Buu Saga suit is same like what he used while training against Saibamen while he was 5 years old.
13. Vegeta’s and his little brothers names together are vegetable. Vegetatarble or Vegetatarble. Or it’s possibly Tarble is translation mistake. His japanese name is Taburu, so we can translate it to ‘Table’ too when it makes more sense. Vegeta Table. — I hope you enjoyed of these little facts and found something new of our prince!
For Japanese learners + those wanting to improve their speaking i cannot stress Netflix’s Terrace House [テラスハウス] enough. This was a pretty popular show back when and Netflix recently worked with Fuji network to revive it. Its about 6 young adults who live together in a house, unscripted (aka reality tv).
Anyway I recommend this because as its “reality” tv its not dramatic or theatrical like dramas, movies, and anime. It shows how people in Japan actually speak to eachother (sentence structure wise) and if you’re near the intermediate level its really easy to follow along without subtitles. If you’re anything like me i use my class and textbooks for writing practice (since in my class we only use long form [です]か[ます] endings) while normal casual conversations use short form [た] & dictionary form so i tend to watch shows and mimic them + speak to native speakers. It will really help with your communication skills!
