Trump dealt with a national security crisis in front of diners and servers at a restaurant

  • North Korea carried out a ballistic missile test Saturday night, launching the weapon in Japan’s general direction while Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. 
  • The launch is being described as a “show of force” by North Korea, according to NBC News.
  • The missile test occurred as Trump and Abe dined in the members’ dining area at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf resort.
  • Rather than retreat to a secure and private location to discuss these sensitive national security issues, Trump, Abe, Steve Bannon and Mike Flynn tended to the crisis right there in the public dining area, where people not permitted to hear classified information could have overheard the conversations, according to CNN.

The “TERRIFYING” asteroid that flew by Earth was not a threat. Ignore the sensationalism.

  • On April 19, a whopping, lustrous asteroid called 2014 JO25 soared past Earth at a safe but visible distance of 1.1 million miles.
  • This particular fly-by was impressive: “The encounter … is the closest this asteroid has come to Earth for at least the last 400 years and will be its closest approach for at least the next 500 years,” according to NASA. “This will be a very close approach for an asteroid of this size.”
  • Impressive. But did it burn through the atmosphere, threatening to crush and burn us all in a fiery storm of death? No.
  • According to NASA, “there [was] no possibility” for the 2,000-foot space rock to collide with our dear planet.
  • That didn’t stop the viral news industry from whipping up some ludicrous headlines about 2014 JO25.
  • In reality, the fly-by presented an exciting scientific opportunity to collect data. Read more (4/26/17 8:13 AM)

Life was never how you would plan it and you knew exactly that.

They say that life is unbearable if you make it unbearable- and as half of that statement is true, half of that statement is life on its own having a way of unravelling itself before you. As if it were knots to seams to threads- life had untied itself in an inevitable way, you could no longer complain anymore.

Kellyanne brings up cameras in microwaves after being asked about dubious wiretapping claims

  • In perhaps the most bizarre comments to date about Trump’s evidence-free allegation that fObama wiretapped Trump Tower, Kellyanne Conway suggested that the spying wasn’t a wire tap at all.
  • Instead, she obliquely hinted that surveillance of Trump Tower could have been done by several means, including spy cameras in microwaves.
  • “What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other,” Conway told Bergen County, New Jersey, newspaper the Record. “You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of different ways.”
  • She added that the surveillance could have been done by “microwaves that turn into cameras.” Read more (3/13/17 8:19 AM)

So Close (part 1 of 5)

Pairing: Lin-Manuel x Reader

Summary: This started as a 4+1 setup on Lin asking you to marry him. It devolved into a study of a year plus some in a relationship, and how you can be so close to the end and yet so far in the blink of an eye.

Word Count: 6580 (oh god I’m so sorry)

Warnings: Medical speak (nothing too graphic), badly translated Spanish, some swears.

Notes:  I am not a medical professional, nor do I speak Spanish, nor have I ever been on Broadway. I put a lot of research into this stuff to make it seem as realistic as possible, but if you can tell me how to fix a situation or change a translation to make it better, please let me know, I’m happy to listen.

I took a lot of inspiration from random things, but I want to point out some of my sources, because they are important.

  • Favorite Human comes from “When You Come Home” by @teamgtnw Take the time to go read that, please, for me.
  • The Hamiltome gave me most of the original cast/crew names and timelines for when things happened (transfer to Broadway, opening night, etc.) I also heavily relied on the timeline on the Hamilton Wiki page.
  • One of the recurring quotes throughout this work comes from Peter Pan. Kudos if you know it.
  • Spanish translations are courtesy of Reverso Contexto. Better than Google, but I’m sure, not infallible. Let me know if I’m way off the mark.
  • Title comes from the Jon McLaughlin song of the same name. It is the over arcing theme song for this fic. Link

This is the first thing I’ve written in at least 5 years, and it’s the first thing I’ve written for a Broadway fandom in 10+ years. Please be kind.

Operation Sleepyhead

AKA - How To Wake A Bookworm Redfox Style

The pitter patter of soft paws in the kitchen woke Gajeel. He kept his eyes closed as he listened to his cat turn the sink on and rummage through the cupboards. Attempting to ignore his acute hearing Gajeel pulled the warm body beside him closer. He gradually began to drown out the noise past his bedroom as he curled his mate’s form closer to his chest. Gently he slowly scooped her so he was cuddling her. One arm wrapped around her small waist while the other reached to intertwine his fingers with hers. He affectionately blew away the mess of blue curls that covered her shoulders.

She shivered, and he watched amused as small goosebumps rose on her ivory skin where his breath had landed.

“Nooooo” she mumbled.

He barely understood her dismay as she stuck a leg back to rest between his thighs.

Gajeel rolled his eyes knowing she couldn’t see him. He never understood why her cuddling habits were so odd. Even now she was fast asleep again with a leg awkwardly resting behind her. He adjusted himself as she continued to wiggle so that her other foot pressed against his shin and then reached one arm out to rest over her head.

Smiling devilishly Gajeel returned to the spot he had blown her hair from earlier as he began to lay soft kisses on the bare skin beside her shoulder blade. He kissed her gently slowly working his way up to her neck. He paused his lips pressed against her skin as she daintily stirred.

“Mmm yous stop geel.” Levy turned her face into the pillow as she went back to sleep.

Gajeel smiled against her skin tuned into the sound of her slow breathing. One of his most favorite things about his mate was her inability to function first thing in the morning. He found it adorable the way her words jumbled as the drunkenness of sleep still held her. He had learned since they began sharing a bed that Levy was most definitely not a morning person. Her weaknesses for late night reading made her useless until late afternoon, it was with exceptional effort on his part that they made it out the front door before 10 am.

Knowing they needed to leave around 9 am Gajeel had already begun what he had nicknamed Operation Sleepyhead . As it always is began with good morning kisses.

Darcy/Steve, Coffee Shop AU

for @renateseline

14. Coffee Shop AU


She came in every day and she usually ordered the same thing.  In fact, Steve had taken to making it ahead of time for her.  

“Caramel latte, Darcy?  Extra whip?”  he asked when the door jingled at exactly 8:13 am.  

“Better make it a double, Steve…” She placed her bag on the counter.

“What’s the occasion?” he asked, dumping her coffee and starting a fresh one in a mug instead of a to-go cup.  

“Got fired,” she said with a smirk.  

“Good riddance…” he said, with a small sigh of relief.  She was always complaining about her boss.  

“I guess…” She pulled out her laptop.  “I have to update my portfolio.  Thinking about going freelance…what do you think?”  

Steve leaned over the counter, clasping his hands together as he peered at her laptop screen.  “I think we could use some work on our website…”  

“What website?”  She chuckled.

“Exactly…maybe you could design one?”  he asked hopefully.  More for her company than the website.  “Write up a quote and get back to me.”  

Her smile was almost better than anything else.  “Sure thing.  As soon as I finish my coffee…”

Dear Charlie,

I’m learning the hard way that people don’t change. My ex- best friend reached out again, and we were supposed to go out tonight again.. here I am, 8:13 pm - with no single fucking word from her. I don’t know if she’s mad about something, but for gods sake let me know.
After this, I’m fucking done.

Regard
A healing heart

Nah not at all!

My old dog, Daphne on my main screen. Lock screen is a photo I took at the Leafs game a couple years ago. I don’t change it often.

PED #164 2017

Teacher guides her students down
a path of destruction
of old ideas and stale regimes
where math is optional
and history is for the unimaginative –
we all know music
is the true universal language
and memories of the past
only make them stronger
and impossible to forget,
humans operate in a cycle
repetition of behavior is expected,
it’s better to learn a useful skill
like basket weaving
or paper lantern making,
even getting your dog 
to give you a high-five.

ok so i’ve been getting asks recently asking me who i used in such and such graphic and i’ve been meaning to post a real list of all the people i use [or plan on using in the future] so here is an attempt at that.
