a series of unfortunate events no 1

anonymous asked:

Have you ever lend a book to a friend, and later on never gotten it back???

Honestly, only like once or twice haha. I’m am super particular about my books and keeping them in pristine condition, so the only time I’ve ever even considered lending out books is if I either really trust the person or if it is a used copy that is already a bit worn. But in general, I don’t really lend out books.

The only instance in which I remember this happening was when I was young and we lent my family’s copies of the first three A Series of Unfortunate Events books to a family and never got them back. To this day we only have books #4-13 in our library, no #1-3. Am I still bitter? Maybe. A little. 

Just kidding I’m totally bitter.

Sunny: So I can either bake these cookies at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or 4,000 degrees for 1 minute.
Klaus: Sunny, no that’s NOT how you bake cookies.
Sunny: FLOOR IT?
Violet: SUNNY NO.
Sunny: HOW ABOUT 4,000,000 DEGREES FOR 1 SECOND?
Klaus: SUNNY YOU ARE GOING TO BURN THE HOTEL DOWN.
Sunny: I’M GOING TO HARNESS THE POWER OF THE FUCKING SUN TO MAKE COOKIES.
Violet: SUNNY PLEASE.

“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

asoue handwriting headcanons
  • Violet’s handwriting is rather large and scribbly
  • Klaus’ writing is neat and small. He writes his vowels with large loops and squishes his letters together
  • Duncan writes his capitals big and his lowercase letters small and jaggedy. As a result they sometimes run together
  • Isadora writes in flowery cursive
  • Quigley’s writing is straight and neat. The tails of his ‘y’s and ‘g’s are very sharp
  • Fiona’s writing is large, but neat. Sometimes she makes the ‘i’ in her name a mushroom

Let’s get started!

Sauce
  1. Heat olive oil in a large sautè pan over medium heat and sautè the garlic.
  2. Add tomatoes and lower heat slightly.
  3. Add olives, capers, cherry tomatoes, anchovies (optional), and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat slightly and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.
Pasta
  1. Pulse flour and salt in a food processor until well combined.
  2. Make three small holes in the flour mixture and crack an egg into each well.
  3. Pulse the mixture until it starts to form pebbles and then drizzle in olive oil.
  4. Add water while pulsing until dough starts to come together.
  5. Remove dough from machine and knead a few times until smooth.
  6. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  7. Cut the dough into fours, and roll each quarter through the pasta maker starting with the largest roller. Roll it through each number 2 to 3 times before making the number smaller.
  8. Roll the sheet through the pasta cutter attachment to create fettuccini.
  9. Toss the noodles in flour and let dry under a towel for about an hour.
  10. Bring a large pot of water to a boil with a pinch of salt and cook pasta for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from water immediately and serve with sauce.
  11. Top with chopped parsley and basil.
  12. TaDa! Here’s a savory dish that the Baudelaire children would be proud to serve up!
I think uncle Monty is the perfect example of a Slytherin who is also a decent and caring human being. Here's why (this is more specific to the show because I haven't read the book in a while):

-Ambitious: He is a world renowned herpetologist/recognised scientist. He worked hard for that, and he wanted that title.

-Cunning: That ingenious door that looks like you have to do a million things to open, but really you just need to turn the doorknob. He named the incredibly deadly viper because he wanted to play a trick on the other scientists who were rude to him.

-Protective: Though he may have been a little too self involved to understand that Olaf was after the children and not his studies, he did recognise that he was a threat, and tried to protect the Baudelaires (and his reptiles) from him.


He did of course have some negative traits as well, but everyone does. Overall though I think he should be recognised as a positive Slytherin character.
