kadan-saran  asked:

Who leaves little notes in the other’s one lunch? (Bonus: what does it usually say?)

“That’d probably b’me. I’d normally pack lunches or leave dinner in the warmer, or prep the breakfast in bed- soot like that, y’know? Leavin’ little messages on the napkins or even on the food itself, written out in a sauce or edible decoration? I don’t know, I like the idea’v them seein’ it later on and bein’ like ‘aww, she thought’v me’ - ‘cause I do, think’v them, y’know? Often.”

Based on the prompt I sent to @princesscas :)

so dean owns a bakery, & he sells these little mini princess cupcakes with purple batter & pink frosting. there’s a little crown on each cupcake & they are so cute & decorated with edible glitter. & cas walks in bc claire really wants one but she wants to act tough & not ask herself bc omg dad thats so lame. so cas asks for a princess cupcake and deans like oh for your daughter? and cas is like no its for me. so every time cas comes in after that dean calls him princess and cas blushes so hard

“Claire, why can’t you just come into the store with me?” Cas asks, tired from his long day at work, “It’s just the bakery, no one you know is going to-”

“Dad,” Claire stops him, crossing her arms, “It’s so lame, and it’s my birthday so you have to do it. Plus, if anyone sees me I’ll end up being the loser again.”

Cas sighs and looks at his daughters face, shaking his head, he gives in, “Fine, but only because it’s your birthday.” he grumbles as she hugs him with a huge smile. 

It wasn’t that Cas didn’t want to go into the bakery and order the cupcake, he was man enough to order a purple cupcake with sparkly pink frosting; it was that there just so happened to be the most handsome man he’d ever seen in his life working there. The first time Cas had to go in and pick up a few doughnuts for work, he’d barely gotten out of there without drooling over the tall, green eyed man.

Sombra Release Theory

Not long ago, some leaked pictures of Overwatch Halloween Lootboxes surfaced on the web and many people (including me) have noticed a Sombra Candy in the Box. 

I talked to my friend about it, and thought of how much Sombra’s logo resembles a Calavera/Sugar Skull

The Fords kept only one of the puppies from Liberty’s litter, a female they named Misty. She joined Mrs. Ford and Susan in the Solarium for a holiday-themed photo shoot for a Parade magazine article in November 1975. Although she wasn’t much help with making ornaments, Misty was very interested in trying to sample some of the edible tree decorations. One of the photos of Mrs. Ford, Susan, and Misty taken by the magazine’s photographer was featured on the cover of Parade when the article ran in December.

Images: Mrs. Ford and Susan Ford play with Misty during a photo shoot for Parade magazine in the White House Solarium, 11/10/1975 (White House photograph A7235-33A); Mrs. Ford holds Misty while the puppy tries to eat tree decorations, 11/10/1975 (A7242-06A).


‘ITS THAT TIME OF THE MONTH AGAIN’ …time to end the tax on sanitary products.

A proposal for a monthly pop up event to discuss, share, petition and raise awareness about the 5% tax on sanitary products in the UK. ALL products used and made for this ‘pop up event’ are NON TAXED. Jaffa Cakes, edible cake decorations, herbal tea and a game of bingo are therefore seen as essentials in the eyes of the government. 

Periods are not a luxury #ENDTAMPONTAX
