anonymous asked:

I got written up once along with a fellow employee because we were both looking at the schedule for 10 seconds, but neither of us had a customer. Apparently you're supposed to sign your write up and return it? I dead ass looked at my manager like he said something stupid when the next day he asked for a returned signed slip. Am I back in elementary school, you want my mom to sign it or something? I just had accepted I got written up and threw it away and moved on. Whoopsies.

I actually still get emails from Trump’s team because I signed up for tickets to his rally here with the intention of going in my hammer and sickle shit and a sign calling him a piece of shit and let me tell you. Monday they sent an email asking people to sign a virtual card for him for president’s day. Like a virtual fucking hallmark card deal.

Signups for the Cockles Big Bang - closing soon!

There are still a few days to sign up as a writer for the Cockles Big Bang before signups close at the weekend - we already have lots of great writers signed up, but would absolutely LOVE to see even more, since there can never be too many Cockles fics!

Schedule is here, faq is here, and the signup form is here - the minimum wordcount is only 3k words with several months to work on your fic, so what do you have to lose?

andieblogs replied to your post “what do you think about the theory that gideon is sentient and is…”

What has made you think she’s self-aware?

Well, full disclosure, I know very little about computer programming.  I’m not even sure that we have quite the same definition of “self-aware”.  :-)  So this is entirely based on a amateur point of view.

But I think she’s shown signs of self-awareness from day one.  She’s always been able to identify herself, introduce herself to the crew, she spontaneously initiates conversation (mostly with Rip), she’s been able to tease him (I’m specifically thinking of when he asks her for odds, and she gives him a 6% chance of the crew actually sticking around, and he, tells her annoyed, “I meant the repairs.”)

I mean obviously she has a very complex programmed personality either way, but I think that she’s shown enough to indicate that she has a distinct sense of identity.  She knows she isn’t the Waverider itself, and says about as much.  She’s able to hide and preserve herself in Destiny.  She’s also able to plan.  She’s the one who came up with the idea to sabotage the other time ships, even if obviously Sara and Leonard came up with the song.  She’s able to indicate preferences.

One of the moments that stands out is the end of Shogun, when asked to play music, she specifically chooses “Captain Hunter’s favorite song”, bringing the conversation (which had been about finding Rex’s killer) back to the idea that Rip is missing too.  

I think also about her obviously not serious threat of rerouting power from the life support when they complain that she isn’t analyzing Lily’s data fast enough.  Obviously a joke, but seems to indicate to me that she can and does choose what to prioritize in these sorts of circumstances.

In Raiders, she’s able to advise a guilty Ray that Rip would want them to have a good time, despite his own capture.

The biggest thing for me though is in Legendary.  When, during Rip’s attempted suicide by sun, she reminds him “I’m still here.”  And “I’m not ready to die.”

And okay, we can either take her at face value, which indicates that she is aware of herself enough to be aware of the finality of death and/or termination.  Which to me says self-awareness as much as anything can.

Or, we take her at face value in Legion of Doom, that AIs can’t truly be terminated.  (Though I think a sun would make for a good attempt.)  Which would mean she lied to manipulate Rip into saving himself.

And if she’s willing to, and able to, act consciously to deceive her Captain and primary admin.   I find it very hard not to attribute self-awareness there.

(At the very least, I bet Gideon could totally pass a Turing Test.  :-P)

Jam, anyone?

Anyone interested in a March jam? Sign-ups would open on 3/1 and posting day would be 3/31. Please reblog with a comment, reply to this post, or PM me if you would like to participate!

This is NOT an announcement for a new jam. I still need to check my schedule to see if I have the time to run RMJ, but I’d like to gauge interest before I make a decision. I will not be counting likes so if you’re interested in participating, please say so!

I really didn’t get the wawa hype til I moved to central jersey but getting a sub while high as shit and not having to communicate with anyone while ordering OR paying is very very special. Also the signs they have that say “baked every day” and I’m like 😏 right you are wawá

Someone once said to me when you find the person you love, love them everyday like it’s the last day you might get to love them and that not only changed me but changed the way I love.

poems for the signs

The fire and blood of a dragon runs through your veins,
and it takes only but a spark to light your fuse
Your soul is an inferno, that wanders through the night, 
wailing like a lonesome wolf.
You are a force to be reckoned with,
with your tempting, but destructive beauty.
You have the ability to scorch even Earth itself,
with just one single glance.
You, my dear, are built out of gold,
one of the most rarest and beautiful things to find in life.
Never lose your flame, for you will lose nothing but yourself.”

You have flowers blooming through your soul,
even in the most darkest and hidden parts of you.
You illuminate a brightness, brighter than the sun,
with your silent radiance.
People are memorized by the power behind your voice,
as the honeyed taste of spilling love falls from your lips.
You are nature itself, grounded and tough,
but pleasuring and lush, like the trees around you.
You are the healer, kissing people’s wounds,
with your undying love.
For you are hard-headed, but not hard-hearted.”

You are the unusual, the chameleon soul,
changing your colors, due to your inner indecisiveness,
that is as wide as the ocean.
Your eyes are like stained glass windows,
holding many colors that represent the wide range of emotions that you hold.
You are the soft skin your lover craves to caress,
the skin that smells of lilac and sunflowers.
Your deception is playful and freeing,
for you are a sharp-tongued lover.
Darling, you are a safe haven, a home,
and anyone who dares to entangle their soul with yours,
will be changed forever.”

You are the nurturer at heart, 
the one that keeps lovers safe in soft silks.
Your soul is bathed in moonlight,
while your tears ripple in the crystal oceans of your collar bones.
The blue-dark belongs solely to you,
and your soft hands part the dark,
letting the light shine through for everyone to be entranced by you.
With beauty as dangerous as a knife,
and love like a double-edged blade,
You are the moon, the keeper of night.”

You are the vibrant goddess of the day, 
with skin as gold as the sun, 
bringing hope to the sunrise. 
Unconditional love brews inside of your photosynthetic heart,
with the ability to keep people alive with a burning desire.
You are sharp-tongued and made of broken glass and honesty,
which is to be admired throughout your life.
There are heartbeats in your eyes that shine so brightly,
you are to be mistaken for the sun itself. 
You are so much more than all of your sins and mistakes,
and all of the tears that stain your radiant eyes,
will soon turn to gems.”

You, my love, are a flower born in the heart of a drought.
Your skin is made of lace and silk, for you are fragile thing,
to be handled with love and care. 
But deep in that pure soul of yours,
lays ardent thoughts and dangerous beauty.
The scars across your heart shall fade like a distant storm,
for you are a soul seeker, a searcher, most importantly, a human.
You are a gentle nymph, singing lovers into a trance,
for you are as lovely and ethical,
as  a faery song.”

For you are a bed of roses, 
with your crimson petal lips and china doll cheeks.
Sometimes you are as bright as the day,
Sometimes you are as dark and mysterious as the night,
you keep people on their toes, waiting for your next move.
You are beauty, in the way that humans so rarely are,
warm and starry eyed,
for you truly are the child of Venus.
You love with the strength of a storm,
but with the kindness of a child.
Darling. you are the oxygen that everyone needs.”

Silver raindrops drip from your lips like stars in the sky,
with hips like a hurricane and a soul to match. 
You are the body electric, the midnight dancer,
with passion that is to not be confused with arrogance. 
You are a supernova, the explosive rebirth,
with a smile that crafts magic.
So many layers and colors you hide, 
contained in your electric heart.
You seep poison into the veins of those who hurt your loved ones,
for your undying passion and love knows no bounds.”

You laugh and smile in sunbeams,
for you are ready to burn through the darkness of the night.
Your everlasting light is buried in the softness of love,
but the untamed dark lingers through your soul.
You, yourself, are a religion, a dreamer,
but as dark and deep as the midnight ocean.
You are so in touch with the earth all around you,
for you have stars in your eyes and moon dust in your hair.
You are a warrior, a light, a fire.”


You, my love, are the definition of inner strength. 
Beyond the hunger of your golden dreams,
a softness remains.
Your soul is a work of art, so bold and unique,
everyone wants a part of you.
tease, touch and dark,
love is something special, and you treat it like gold.
There are sparkles in your doe eyes,
and your touch entrances people,
with the undying mystery and ferocity in every stroke of your love.”

You are made of nocturnal oracles and burning stars,
the brightest stars from all the heavens.
Your brilliant mind is as wide and colorful as the aurora borealis,
and oh, what I’d do to get lost in it for eternity.
Your heart bleeds in water colors, 
for you are the ocean itself,
keeper of the lively tides.
The bruises that paint across you skin are like galaxies,
for you are fully made of star dust.”

You are the galaxy in the skin of a human, the owner of the sky.
Your bruised mouth speaks an intoxicating type of love,
for you are a sweetheart, a seductress.
Your starving soul is desperate to wrap around another,
for you find beauty in the broken. 
Your mystical and rose colored aurora draws admirers in,
for you, yourself are the unknown.
Darling, you leave a trail of stars wherever you go,
for you a wanderess of the night.”
