Oh my god, in last night’s Bob’s Burgers, Bob takes Gene to a laser light rock show at the planetarium (super important to Bob, because it was his favorite when he was a teenager, and this is the last night before they’re closing the exhibit because it’s old and no one goes anymore, also it’s Bob’s birthday), and Gene has no idea what he’s in for, but he gets pumped for it anyway ‘cause Bob’s so excited about it, and finally they get in there and they’re watching it, and Gene has a sensory overload and kinda starts freaking out ‘cause he can’t handle it, so Bob takes him out and they sit in the car for a bit. Gene’s angry because Bob didn’t tell him it would be so loud and scary, so Bob offers to play the album for Gene at a normal volume, and Gene starts to enjoy it, so he reclines the seats, takes out the cigarette lighter, tells Gene to pretend it’s a laser, and starts drawing in the air, explaining the plot to him (it’s like a full on Pink Floyd or Rush-esque rock opera about a bunch of robot overlords telling rockers that they can’t play music anymore, and one Rebel rising against them). Gene gets really into it and decides he wants to see the finale of the laser show (which Bob regards as a life-changing experience), so they sneak back into the planetarium (there’s no re-entry allowed) with a few tricks that parallel the story from the album, and watch the climax of the show together (Bob fashions some earplugs for Gene out of a napkin). On the way home, Bob’s asking Gene how he liked it, and Gene says “I loved it!”, Bob asks him to speak louder ‘cause his ear’s are shot, and Gene yells, “I LOVED IT, DAD”. Bob yells back “I love you too, Gene”.
I FUCKING!!! CAN’T!!! DEAL!!!! WITH HOW GOOD THIS SHOW IS!!! I know i don’t talk about Bob’s Burgers a lot but this show is flawless and charming and gross and funny all at the same time, the characters are written like people with actual fears and anxieties, and unlike a lot of comparable shows, the comedy doesn’t come from the family being pitted against each other, it’s always the family against the world… I love it, I love it, it’s so pure and refreshing and still somehow manages to be funny without sacrificing it’s heart, and I fuckin’ love it, please watch Bob’s Burgers holy CRAP okay I’m done.
aries: stop making impulsive decisions! trying to solve a problem quickly doesn’t work if you don’t think it through. don’t be so direct, it comes off as aggressive. you need to learn that other people have different opinions than you. don’t be so aggressive or try too hard to win an argument. criticism is not meant to hurt you, it’s meant to help you. start being more patient. just try to relax more or use your energy for other things. you’re very enthusiastic and know how to excite other people. you’re an excellent motivator. keep this up! many people need help with this and no one is better at it than you.
taurus: you knew it was coming- stop. being. so. stubborn. you have excellent common sense, use it to help you fix this stubbornness! some decisions are urgent. it’s good that you think them over but there’s no need to over analyze. understand that other people believe in different things. go ahead and fight for what you believe in but don’t get so into it that it ruins your day. you’re practical and deliberate. you’re not indecisive and you keep both emotions and logic in mind. continue doing this, it’s great!
gemini: try to start concentrating on a specific subject. it’s okay to learn about multiple things, but master one! watch what you say to other people. when communicating, you’re emotionally detached so that can make you come off as rude. the gossiping, flirting for no reason, playing with others’ weaknesses and stirring up controversy are things you can stop. they’re pointless! no need to do them just because you’re bored. you’re open-minded, logical and one of the most intelligent placements. you’re an excellent speaker and very witty. people will always enjoy a debate with you. these are very good things. use them as your advantage, find a career, skill or hobby that these can be applied to!
cancer: you seem a bit closed off and secretive even when you’re not. watch out for this! you like other people but this can push them away. you hate conflict. you start arguments often but don’t fight back. it’s okay to argue back or settle the argument down. you’re not doing anything wrong if you do. just don’t take anything the other person says so personally. criticism is to help you, not hurt you. there’s no need to be defensive. other than that, you’re very thoughtful. you’re shy, but this isn’t bad or good, it’s just there. you’re romantic, you have a great memory and you’re gentle. you’re loyal and not impulsive. these are all excellent qualities. you should mix them when working on everything else!
leo: it’s okay if you want to share your knowledge, but try not to act like a know-it-all. sometimes you even come off as arrogant. you’re not trying to be and you can’t even tell when you are. you always think about what other people think of you as a whole. you want everyone to love you, but you don’t think about when you’re annoying them or making them mad with little habits you have. pay attention to this. people aren’t gonna like you if you don’t pay attention. and don’t be so stubborn! other than that, you are passionate, creative, friendly, and entertaining. you’re an excellent actor and public speaker. you should definitely start doing more things that can put those great qualities to use.
virgo: relax. everything that can be fixed can be done by relaxing. it’s okay to learn about something you’re interested in, even if it doesn’t have a purpose or won’t get you anywhere. you pay attention to detail so much that you miss the big picture. you need to find a happy medium. you’re very picky, critical and whiny- all of this can be fixed if you just relax a bit. you get like this when you’re stressed out and overwhelmed. if you take this advice, you won’t be as stressed out or overwhelmed. you’re practical, detail-oriented, and cautious. you don’t make impulsive decisions. this is all great! if you try to take the advice i offered, make sure you keep these qualities. it might be a little hard but it’s possible!
libra: start actually listening to people. hear what they say. continue to think about the logic of what they’re saying, but don’t do it as much as you are right now. try to stop being so indecisive. stop trying to find middle ground for every single argument. you’re trying to make it fair, but sometimes that can be the exact opposite. because truthfully, one person can be right while the other is wrong. in those cases, there shouldn’t be a “middle ground”. don’t be lazy and try to be reliable. you’re great at diffusing conflict when it needs to be diffused. in the cases where two people arguing are right, you’re great at finding that place in between where it can be fair. continue this! just make sure that both sides of the argument are good and it’s not just black and white. you’re artistic, easy-going, a perfectionist and supportive. this is great! you’re able to easily take the advice offered and keep these qualities.
scorpio: watch out for coming across as negative! you don’t mean to, but people might see you as that. for example, when you’re giving critiques, be careful with how you give them. you also might be very quick to say something back to someone that makes you seem negative. it’s hard to compromise with you because of how stubborn you are. other signs are the same, but they won’t hold on as strongly or aggressively as you do. you’re very good at reading people and keeping secrets. you’re also a great motivator. you’re artistic, strategic, intelligent and passionate. you’re an excellent person to my friends with. keep this up! it’s one of the best things about you.
sagittarius: pay more attention to details! it’s great that you’re an optimist, but sometimes you need to start looking at the realistic side so you don’t set yourself up for disappointment. you could be more organized! try to stay patient with people. you can also still learn about many things to satisfy that curiosity of yours while focusing on one subject. you sometimes are gonna have to. because you’re so blunt, you can come across as someone who brags and is rude. this has to do with how much you want to get to the point, same with the impatience. this can actually be very good though- you won’t fall for mind games and sometimes getting to the point is needed. you’re independent, adventurous, enthusiastic and great at defending others. you love learning about broad subjects. this is all great! keep it up!
capricorn: this advice given to you is very similar to the advice given to virgo mercury- relax. you get impatient with people, overwhelmed, skeptical and strict. take a step back a bit. not everything is in your control and not everything is gonna go smoothly. when there’s bumps in the road, don’t get aggressive or impatient. you’re just gonna have to figure them out and you can’t do that when you’re feeling a ton of heat. try to be more open-minded! you appear to be pessimistic because of your lack of enthusiasm, this is also something you’re capable of changing if you want to. you’re reliable, independent, practical, intelligent and cautious. all of this proves that you like stability. if you take the advice offered, you’re more likely to be surrounded by more stability!
aquarius: stop starting problems and running away from solving them. you’re very smart! you’re capable of coming up with solutions immediately if you try to. there’s no reason to start chaos if you don’t want to be involved once you begin it. you have a big superiority complex which can do the exact opposite of what you want. people see that you have this complex and don’t like it. then they are less likely to satisfy it or allow you to practice it. it’s contradictory. try to get rid of this complex, it does literally nothing. you’re open-minded but also stubborn, it’s confusing. on top of all of this, you’re independent, organized, quirky, funny, practical and observant. that’s awesome! it makes people love to be around you.
pisces: you don’t like conflict, but when you’re unpredictable and moody, it causes conflict. this is confusing for other people as well as yourself! try to take a step back and think about how you’re feeling. is it rational? does acting out in unpredictable ways fix anything? try to sort out your thoughts more. this will help you make decisions and form opinions. you’re very trusting of others. this can set you up to be taken advantage of. sorting out your thoughts and really trying to think things through (without mixing in emotion) will also help stop this from happening. when overwhelmed, relax and get back to work instead of being lazy. you’re very artistic so engage in art! it will help you build confidence. you’re an awesome listener and very imaginative. applying logic to your thinking will help everything you imagine actually become reality!
things gansey says/does in literally one page of the raven boys:
- “how are you doing? well, i trust?” - “brilliant” when the girl he likes tells him she’s doing okay - nervously falters when he asks said girl to go walk around in the woods with him looking for some dead ass king - *sounds deflated* .3 seconds later: *sounds 14 shades brighter* - uses “shall” in a normal sentence - says “brilliant” again, and then, “top shelf” - says “I think this will be interesting” like a middle-aged bird watcher trying to conceal his excitement about to embark on a bird watching expedition that he spent all of his retirement money on
some more funky gansey things: - *kicks his shoes violently across the room* “yee haw” - the famous “hey, tiger” - “this is precisely why i didn’t want to have a baby with you”
feel free 2 add on, this is a loving gansey post & all gansey love is welcome
