Here’s the email all University of Saskatchewan students received after the new budget was announced. Not only is this is the worst cut we’ve received in our University’s history but now they have to fund the College of Medicine as well. Our school is already struggling this was just a kick in the face while we were down. Brad Wall and the Sask party do not care about students. I am disgusted.

Haruhi:  A week a way from these freaks!  I mean, sleep!  

Tamaki:  Sleep?!  Haruhi, don’t tell me you plan on living a banal existence?  We are teenagers on spring break!  The world is our oyster!  We can do whatever we want!  We can go crazy!  In fact, let’s do just that!  Who’s with me for finding all sorts of life-affirming activities to do this week?

allwaswell16  asked:

Prompt: Louis and Harry are getting ready for a wedding. But they both look so good, they end up not ready for the wedding. (Yes, I read all your tags. Let's not even pretend I don't. Also, that PBC story is gold. Even though I can't imagine those sandwiches being that good. But okay.)

lol five months later i am responding to this prompt, sorry for the extreme delay!!! also, i’m afraid it turned out all weird and disjointed, but it is what it is.  Okay here we go: 

“How much time between the ceremony and the reception?” Harry asked.    

“I dunno,” Louis said.  It came out sharper than he’d intended, but he was trying to concentrate on opening the door to their hotel room, and Harry was bouncing on the balls of his feet right next to him, full of the same antsy energy he had been for weeks.  It was making Louis uneasy.  

“Did you bring the invite?” Harry asked, following Louis into the room a touch too close behind.  

“No,” Louis said, tone still too sharp.  He winced internally, dropping his bag and quickly hanging his suit in the doorless closet before pretending to investigate the bathroom so he didn’t have to see any hurt on Harry’s face. “Did you?”    

 Harry only snorted in response, and Louis could hear him shucking off his shoes and fumbling around to hang up his own suit.  He’d flopped onto one of the double beds by the time Louis shuffled back out into the room, long and lean and up on his elbows as he slow-blinked at Louis and chewed on the inside of his lip.

“Well, go on that website, then,” Louis said, ordering himself to ignore what an utter picture Harry made, all spread out on the ugly olive drab hotel comforter like he was on display.  

Lately, it almost seemed like Harry was trying to provoke him, sometimes.  Like somehow, after all these years, he’d finally figured out how Louis felt, and was trying to goad him into acting on it with his body and his eyes and his utter lack of regard for Louis’s personal space.

Behind the Scenes of Planet of the Dead - Part Six

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s set report in DWM 408:

[on trying to film during a sandstorm]
“Not only was what we were shooting looking horrible,” James tells DWM, “because we had no light… and this massive desert landscape, you couldn’t see it… I mean, we could have been in a car park at Upper Boat… but also sand was being blown in our faces constantly. The actors couldn’t open their eyes.”

“Problem is,” says make-up designer Barbara Southcott, “it’s on high-def, so you’ll see every bit of sand on their skin.”

“You’ll have to paint it out,” make-up artist Steve Smith teases The Mill’s Dave Houghton.

“Frame by frame,” nods Dave, “grain by grain.”

“I know it’s not easy, guys,” calls out John [Bennett, First Assistant Director]. “Let’s just do what we can.” But David’s hair has turned blonde. (Daniel [Kaluuya, who plays Barclay] dubs him “Barry Manilow”.)

The sand is sticking to everything. Worst hit is Tracie Simpson, whose lips are actually yellow. This is her first episode as Doctor Who’s producer. It’s a baptism of fire - no, of wind! Of wind and sand and lipstick.

Forgetting that Dubai is four hours ahead of the UK, DWM decides to text a message of support to Russell T Davies in Cardiff - you know, something encouraging and inspiring. But somehow we manage to send one that says: “SANDSTORM! CODE RED! ABORT! ABORT!” Surprisingly, Russell messages back: “I’ve got you texting with ‘SANDSTORM!’ and Julie [Gardner, executive producer] phoning with ‘SANDSTORM!’ I’m hooting. Save yourself, Ben.” Perhaps we should hide in a Portaloo until it’s all over? (We don’t last long. It stinks in here. Besides, a queue was forming.)

Back outside, the majestic crane shots intended for this morning are abandoned. The crane is dismantled and taken away. “I thought, let’s shoot everything that we can against the bus,” James explains later. “…but the actors all looked like they’d been tarred in sand and dragged through a hedge.”
