bat pool

Help I’m in middle-aged domestic AU hell with Codywan. I’m so smitten with them just quietly holding hands and politely spooning and reading the newspaper in bed with their legs casually entwined and hiking in the afternoon with their dogs and wearing terribly blah sweaters unironically and swing dancing on the weekends and doing their taxes and grousing about things being untidy and taking turns rubbing each others’ shoulders and feet after long days of trying to corral schoolchildren and rookie cops who may as well be children.

Field trip to Bodega Bay (1/26/14) Finale: My favorite pictures from the day

1) Bat Star and Pisaster right next to each other, with Pisaster’s tube feet visible. Pisaster was more prevalent where there more waves, since it mostly ate mussels, while the bat stars ate more algae, which grew with less waves, so it was cool to see them both right next to each other

2) Scyphozoan Jelly on the mudflats. The red spots are eyespots. We thought the fluffy tan things in the middle might be the oral arms retracted in for low tide. We also thought it (and all the others we found) were dead, but then we put them in a bucket and they were fine. (One thing I learned on this field trip was that cnidarians can in fact survive on the coast at low tides.)

✨ Fun & fabulous sorority DATE PARTY ideas! ✨

Q: Hi! I’m trying to plan a date dash for my sorority but we don’t have a house, so I was wondering of you have any ideas of where to go for it, or fun things we could do? Thanks!!!

A: Date and Crush parties can be creative and exciting! Date functions are a little different than mixers and exchanges. They focus more on couples and pairing up. You don’t need a sorority house to hold a successful date party. Many are held off campus at event venues, clubs and outdoor locations. 

✨  TOP 17 DATE PARTY IDEAS: ✨

  • Everybody Gets Leid. Hawaiian date party where everyone gets a lei and parties in grass skirts and Hawaiian clothes. Decorate with tropical flowers, palm trees and island decor.
  • Food Mascot Match-Up. Create a master list of Food Mascots. Each sister signs-up for a mascot to be her costume from the master list. Invite one fraternity with equal numbers to your sorority, or ask each sister to invite 1 guy to attend (but not as her date.) When the guys are invited, each one is randomly assigned a mascot costume from the same master list. At the party there will be 2 versions of the same mascot ~ one girl and one guy version. Each girl must find her date by locating her “matching” character. For example: Chick-Fil-A cows, Orbit Gum girls, Tony the Tigers, Mr. Peanuts, M&Ms, Burger Kings, Wendy’s, etc… The different interpretations of the same mascot are fun and make for great photos.
  • Dinner Basket Auction. The evening version of the Lunch or Picnic Box Auction. Sisters provide basket dinners for 2 and the fraternity guys bid on them, not knowing who made each basket. Buyers then share their dinner with the girl who made it. The auction proceeds go to charity. Or stage your auction with “play money” just for fun. This dinner basket party is extra fun when held at the beach, lakeside, or other appealing location.
  • Tie The Knot. Your roommate sets you up with a date, but doesn’t tell you, or the date, who you both will be attending the party with. The guy gives his tie to your roommate, she gives it to you and you wear the tie to the party. Your date has to “find” you by finding who is wearing his tie.
  • My Tie. On the afternoon of the event, the invited fraternity delivers a box of ties to the sorority house from every guy who will be attending. Each sister selects a tie and wears it to the party that evening. Whoever the tie belongs to is the sister’s date for the evening.
  • Quickie Date Dash: The social chair announces in an email, or at a chapter meeting, that everyone has 24 hours to find a date for a date party just 24 hours later. 
  • Point of No Return. No one knows the date party location except the Social Chair and President. Everyone is given a party favor clue when the couples board the bus. The bus then takes them to the party venue such as the beach or a dance club.
  • Find Your Sister A Mister. Randomly pair up each sister with another sister 24 hours before the party. Each pair must find a date for the other and ask him to attend. This is especially interesting if the sisters don’t know each other well. 
  • Handcuffed Bowling. Each couple is handcuffed together with a zip-tie, or cheap plastic handcuffs and they have to bowl that way. Award prizes to the top 3 winning couples.
  • Speed Dating. Invite a fraternity of equal size to participate. Play lively music and allow 3-5 minutes for pairs to talk to each other. Ring a bell/blow a horn and everyone must rotate conversation partners. Add energetic background music to make it even more lively.
  • Date Dash. At chapter meeting everyone is suddenly told they have 20-30 minutes to find a date. Each sister must run around campus to find someone to invite to the party. They can ask their boyfriend, an acquaintance, or even a stranger. All guest are brought back to the sorority house for the date party, or taken to an off campus location.
  • Masquerade Date Party. Each sister decorates two matching masks. One mask of the pair is collected in a box from all the sisters. The box is then delivered to a fraternity (or two frats if needed for numbers). The guys randomly pick a mast, not knowing who made it. Everyone wears their mask to the party and must find their “match.” Matching masks are dates for the evening. Decorate in a Mardi Gras theme. Give the girls lots of Mardi Gras beads and have the guys work for them by doing things like ‘craziest dance move’, or 'sing a song.’
  • Jailhouse Date Party. One or two fraternities are invited for even numbers. Everyone is asked to dress as convicts and they’re given a prison number to pin/stick onto their chest when they arrive. Dates for the night are found via matching prison numbers. Decorate in a jailhouse theme. Variation: Down South Jailhouse for a redneck version.
  • Alphabet Soup. Ask each sister to invite 1 guy (but not as a date.) Or invite a fraternity with equal numbers. Each guest, male & female, is assigned a letter and must dress as something which begins with that letter. Letters are randomly assigned to girls and guys from A to Z. Dates connect at the party by finding their matching “letter” interpretation. Costumes can get quite creative, so finding your match should be interesting and challenging.
  • Camo Draft-A-Date. Each sister invites 2 guys to the party anonymously. During the evening, the guys must try to find out who invited them. Ask everyone to dress in camo and decorate in a patriotic military theme.
  • Paint Your Date. The messiest party ever. Sisters each invite a date and everyone is asked to wear all white “disposable” clothing. Provide gallons of water-based paint for everyone to paint their date. An outside grassy location is best. Squirt guns filled with paint are also fun for tagging others. Add a dance floor, Dj and great music. Variation: use only bright paints and provide black lights for a glow-in-the-dark paint party.
  • Costume Couples: For date parties where each girl invites her own date (no surprises or set-ups) these costume ideas are super fun ~ Famous Real Life Couples • Noah’s Ark (couples dress as the same animal) • Wizards & Witches • Food Combos (bacon & eggs) • Cartoon Couples • TV & Movie Couples • Fantasy & Storybook Couples • Social Media & Tech (Instagram and iphone) • Nature Combos (tree & koala).

Oh please tell me you have something for dark timeline Jack because I LOVE your writing

so darker timeline jack is all about contingency plans. geoff has a Plan A and occasionally a Plan B, but jack? she’s got Plan A through Z and knows them all like the back of her hand, can switch gears in the space between one heartbeat and the next. jack is the Queen of Equanimity. if you’re panicking, that means the other side has already won–and jack is a viciously sore loser. 

so she doesn’t panic. and it works, because she can play any role. jack of all trades, master of–well, honestly, master of most of them. she can be the hitter, the mastermind, the monkey, the honeypot. knows seven languages and seventy different accents and can make a weapon out of virtually anything.

also, the thing is, where darker timeline ray and ryan like to, uh, play with their food, jack gets her kicks elsewhere.

jack isn’t going to spend four hours working over a single person for information. to jack, everyone is expendable. every loss is an acceptable loss. and you better believe she isn’t going to waste her time playing mind games and posturing.

michael remembers finally getting fed up with trying to pry information from a couple of moles in their syndicate one time, and so he’d called in jack.

and jack enters, high heels clicking and echoing through the warehouse. when she comes to a stop, she says nothing, just takes in the two men bound to cheap chairs next to each other

and finally she sighs like she’s been presented with a couple of obnoxious, misbehaving children. she turns to the guy on the left and very calmly says, “i need the names of everyone you sold our info to.”

but of course the guy just snorts and rolls his eyes and says nothing save a disparaging comment under his breath.

jack shrugs. “alright,” she says, and takes four steps to the side to pick up a heavy baseball bat, riddled with nails, from a pile of weapons.

it happens in a fraction of a second.

the guy opens his mouth with a sneer, but then jack takes a hard swing and slams the bat into the side of the guy’s head, crushing his skull like a soda can and sending blood and unidentifiable bits splattering all over the other man, who promptly pitches forward and dry heaves with a choking sound.

“i need the names of everyone you sold our info to,” jack repeats, this time to the guy on the right, as she tightens her grip on the bat. blood is pooling on the concrete floor. the guy immediately starts spitting out names with a voice that shakes so hard it’s nearly incomprehensible.

jack smiles sweetly. “great. that wasn’t so hard, now, was is it?” she says, so patronizing it makes the man flinch. then she hefts the bat again to give him a dented skull to match his friend’s, heedless of his begging, his desperate sobbing. 

and none of this is to say that jack doesn’t have fun. the whole crew plays. the whole crew is made up of a bunch of dramatic flairs personified.

meaning jack has a special form of execution called “terminal velocity” and it mostly involves taking someone to the highest altitude possible and throwing them out of the helicopter without a parachute.

she maintains it’s basically just performance art. there’s something poignant about terrified screams being snatched away by wind and gravity.
