Yes, that is also something I considered and a distinct possibility. Although it amuses me to imagine Martha and Donna chewing out Eleven when he inevitably tries to act condescending towards them.

And of course there are the others…

7-Elevens were truly a work of art, if Yongguk was being honest. A magical place – always there whenever and wherever you need it, one you go in, look around and find yourself having everything you may ever desire, despite the seemingly small size. Whether you seek a certain item, a moment of peace or simply a spot to go to, for someone like himself, it was always a good choice of a destination. Inside, nobody ever cared about other people, who they were, their intentions; in the most casual clothes and the biggest bags under his eyes, Yongguk was as incognito as possible, a real nobody between rows upon rows of flavored milk and cans of soda. The averageness (and ridiculousness) of it all was quite honestly a blessing.

It’d been quite a long while since he had stopped in the packed instant meals section, one of the biggest and probably the most sought after of all. It was rather absurd, how many different types, tastes and variants of ramyeon there was, all those multiplied times as many manufacturers made these; he was pretty sure it’d take months of daily eating for a single person to try each and every one of them. The plastic packages – bags here, cups there, and even entire boxes somewhere on the side – all seemed to scream at the potential buyers: take me, I’m the best!, through the loud and bold designs, trying to stand out in such similar fashion, that it all blended in together instead. As someone who might’ve as well been considered a connesieur of those, Yongguk knew better than to trust the packaging alone, anyway. (He still took his sweet time in choosing, simply because he liked the limbo that 7-Eleven’s space provided him with, which meant that real life and real responsibilities were momentary on hold right outside of its sliding door.)

Usually not paying much attention to the co-customers, in the true convenience store fashion, it was rather difficult to ignore someone who, apparently, was even more focused and determined to pick the right ramyeon than Yongguk himself. From the corner of his eyes, he found himself observing the female’s actions – scanning the long rows of different packages, reaching out and inspecting them like some kind of scientific object; she weighted them in her hands, turned around and around, read about every little thing that was written on it (or so it looked like, to Yongguk), and seemed to find something in each and every one of them that, in the end, had her put the item back in its place on the shelf. To him, the sight was slightly amusing and, for reasons unknown, a whole lot interesting – especially how she looked a little too covered in a bit too expensive clothes, for him to think of her as any less than a fellow celebrity of some sorts.

“This one is nasty.” He said eventually, when she kept holding onto that one package far longer than any other before. His voice was only halfway to its regular volume, as if he was sharing some confidential or illegal knowledge, and he threw her only one quick side-glance, before turning back to the assortment of 짜파게티. They really should change their design, but he figured they didn’t care for it, with how established their item’s brand already was. People would buy it anyway. 

“Trust me. Been there, tried that–it’s neither ‘the spiciest’ not ‘the most exiciting’.” The continuation came just a few breaths later, a small scoff resounding when he recalled the way the brand picked up by the girl next to him advertised themselves through. 

“Exciting, really… I had more fun sitting in full make-up, hair-do and performance clothes on, behind the MuBank stage, waiting for over half an hour on stand-by, when one of the key lights broke last minute and halted our recording right before it started.” It was a bitter memory, as bitter as the one of eating that particular ramyeon – even more so, considering the fact that he had bought the entire bulk package of those and had to either eat it or come to terms with wasting money. Yongguk hated the idea of wasting money, so he simply dumped the remnants into B.A.P’s dorms and let the leeches of his groupmates to eat it. They did, and then complained – the ungrateful bastards – but they never quite figured out who exactly had gotten these in the first place, thankfully.

You always said you wouldn’t live past 37,
Ever since you were eleven
You knew that time would stop
Whenever you chose to beckon.

Which raises the question,
What happens when you leave this place
And wake up in heaven?

Will the silence lessen?
The pain and all the voices
Screaming armageddon

An obsession
That started when you were only seven,
Made real by the oppression
Of everybody telling you
To get over your depression.

The suppression,
Told with thoughtless indiscretion,
Giving their 2 cents like it was their profession.

Your confession,
Given with almost no expression,
Says you always said you wouldn’t live past 37.

—  Fourteen more years with you

i mean Honestly the way i left chapter twelve last night could potentially be the end of a chapter but i can’t see myself making a thirteenth chapter be only around 2k words and i think that’s about how long i have left of the fic to write? chapter twelve is 10k words now and that’s the longest chapter i have… maybe it’s making up for the short chapter eleven? i dunno

i Know no one really cares if a chapter is long or whatever because my fics are typically on the longer side but… i dunno

Winnipeg woman chases deals for a freebie-filled birthday

It’s no secret: Erin Murray really loves birthdays.

“I like everybody knowing it’s my birthday,” she said. “I like having that positive attention and getting free stuff.”

For the last two years, the Winnipeg woman — who turned 48 Friday — has made it her mission to plan her birthday around how many free things she can collect. And as it turns out, you can get a lot for free on your special day.

Murray’s plans this year included everything from a free breakfast at Denny’s to a free go-kart ride at Thunder Rapids Fun Park — not to mention a free lunch at Mongo’s, a free drink at Starbucks, a free slurpee at 7-Eleven, and a free dessert at the Keg.

“My mom always made my birthday really special. I try to make my kids’ birthdays really special. I do lots of themed parties and plan a lot," Murray told CBC's Information Radio Friday morning.

"I also love free, so it’s a great combination.”

Murray's annual tradition began three years ago, when she first had a free breakfast at Denny’s after hearing about its birthday special.

“I thought, ‘That was fabulous,’ and then I started hearing [about] more free deals,” she said.

Free food, free stuff

Murray, a self-employed mom of two, has worked from home for the last 10 years, which she says gives her more freedom when the time comes to celebrate her special day.

“Everybody is so busy, so rather than planning a lunch date — which most of my friends couldn’t go on — I just started doing my own lunch dates,” she said.

Besides all the free food, there’s also free stuff.

Earlier this week, Murray received free samples from cosmetics store chain Sephora, and she’s now waiting on a $10 birthday voucher from the Body Shop.

The list goes on and on, and Murray has done the math.

“I figured out it’s probably about $80 or so, between free desserts, free meals, free items, free drinks — and just lots of fun.”

Birthday buyer beware

While birthday freebies abound, Murray said eager deal seekers do need to pay attention to the fine print.

Some businesses require valid photo identification, whereas other deals require people to register online, either on their birthday or in advance.

“I would advise people to go online about a month, or at least a couple days, in advance,” Murray said.

Murray said it’s also a good idea to find out whether store staff are aware of their birthday deals, as managers may not always be on site.

For all Murray’s planning, things don’t always go according to plan.

“The weather didn’t co-operate — pouring rain — and my daughter [was] not feeling her best, so I had to scale back the morning plans,” Murray told CBC later on Friday.

Still, Murray had managed to add a few more items to her birthday haul: a free slurpee, a free ice cream, and a free lunch at Burger King.

As for go-karting, there’s always next year.

May I Have Your Attention, Please? || chapter 1

The main stage has been transformed to its usual appearance, two tables with eleven chairs and nametags.

“Please, everyone—to your seats!” The host ushers you to your spots.

“We have a very special new addition to our roster!”

“Princess Selena… come on down!”

What do you think a candle for Eleven from Stranger Things should smell like? I always get wonderful reactions from customers at conventions when they see this candle. I’m often asked what it smells like before someone actually has a chance to pop the lid off, and it’s almost like they would be horribly disappointed if it smelled like anything but Eggo waffles. Rest assured, friends… we aim to please! Our Eleven candle smells of buttery waffles drizzled with sweet syrup, on a base of warm vanilla.

longest tennis match records by duration or number of games. The 1973 introduction of the tiebreak reduced the opportunity for such records to be broken. However, among the Grand Slams, only the US Open uses the tiebreak in the final set; the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and Olympic tennis instead use the advantage set rules in the final set – in such a set there can be an indefinite number of games until there is a winner. This resulted, for example, in the record-obliterating Isner vs. Mahut match at Wimbledon 2010.

The Isner–Mahut match at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships holds the record for the longest tennis match both in time and games played. Only two official ATP matches have lasted longer than 7 hours. Eleven matches have lasted longer than 6 hours, and 36 matches have lasted longer than 5 hours
