gpoy if there ever was one

I went shopping with a friend yesterday and in one store the girl behind the counter had the Tolkien symbol tattooed on her forearm

So I said: “Cool tattoo”
Her: “Thanks! Do you know what it’s from?”
Me: “Yeah from Tolkien”
Her: “Omg you’re the first person ever to recognize it. Are you a big fan?”
Me: *slowly pulls up my sleeve to uncover my own Tolkien tattoo*
Her: *gasps*

It was such an awesome thing to happen C:

A little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters – sometimes very hastily – but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, ‘Dear Jim: I loved your card.’ Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said: 'Jim loved your card so much he ate it.’ That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.

50 mile skate at the General James A. Van Fleet Trail. Wow. I am definitely not the same person I was at 7am when I started this trail. Gorgeous trail and perfect for a skate (minus a couple bumpy miles). The last eight were hard, with the last five being the one of hardest things I’ve ever done in my life. Holy freaking heck.

When I got to the end of the trailhead and saw the car (that I knew had an ice cold cider waiting in the cooler for me) the sheer amount of relief was intense. Full disclosure - I peed my pants, y'all. 😂😂😂 Could not contain it in any way. Sheer relief. Collapsed onto the ground. Oof. Did the damn thing though. Also, check out the adorable baby gator!! 😀😀😀

stephanierabig  asked:

24, 29, and 30 for the identity ask!

24: have you ever felt like you had a “mind-meld” with someone?

FUNNY YOU SHOULD ASK THIS QUESTION, STEPH, given the number of times we’ve been speeding down the same mental tracks, racing one another to the same scandalous destination, lol. @airy-minotaur and i have also had those moments, and @geekybibliophile during liveblogs and disney sing-a-longs.

29: three songs that you connect with right now.

halsey’s “strangers”
fall out boy’s “young and a menace”
and perturbator’s “sentient”

30: pick one of your favorite quotes

“All witches are selfish, the Queen had said. But Tiffany’s Third Thoughts said: Then turn selfishness into a weapon! Make all things yours! Make other lives and dreams and hopes yours! Protect them! Save them! Bring them into the sheepfold! Walk the gale for them! Keep away the wolf! My dreams! My brother! My family! My land! My world! How dare you try to take these things, because they are mine!“ – The Wee Free Men, Sir Terry Pratchett

People said that there were books everywhere, on shelves, under chairs, on chairs – the chairs were two – and tied with binder twine in bags under the bed. Gavin Highly collected and loved books. No one had ever really seen these books, but hearsay had it that they were worth thousands of pounds and, if ever Gavin wanted to have his dream and live in a proper house with a proper downpipe and spouting and taps inside and waste pipes under the sink and hot water, why, all he’d need to do was sell his books.

Today’s been the day of 1000 pics of myself, but I don’t think this one’s ever made tumblr. So last one I promise, then I’ll leave some room for my ego to deflate

Cali chronicles// 4-27: I’ll start by saying fuck Ridley Scott for his casting choices and any movie he dropped after Exodus anyways one of my favorite movies of like ever has been Blade Runner from the music to the cinematography it all inspired me heavily. So to walk into the Bradbury building, the place they filmed Sebastian’s death in the movie was like stepping into a scene from my favorite movie- no wait…I did! It was wild, it felt timeless. Like I was in some place that floated outside reality and was instantly in love with it.
