have a delicious beer

the-frustrated-muggleborn  asked:

Since people are telling you to visit certain countries/cities, I'll also invite you to Belgium. Nice fries, good chocolate, apparently we have nice beer (I don't like beer so I have no idea), delicious wafles, second country in the world to legalise same sex marriage, record holder of the title "country that had no government for the longest time", Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (which have A LOT of plants), ... Very nice place, must visit.

waffles, equal rights, greenhouses and fries are so my jam damn it

It is a curious thing, but as one travels the world getting older and older, it appears that happiness is easier to get used to than despair. The second time you have a root beer float, for instance, your happiness at sipping the delicious concoction may not be quite as enormous as when you first had a root beer float, and the twelfth time your happiness may be still less enormous, until root beer floats begin to offer you very little happiness at all, because you have become used to the taste of vanilla ice cream and root beer mixed together. However, the second time you find a thumbtack in your root beer float, your despair is much greater than the first time, when you dismissed the thumbtack as a freak accident rather than part of the scheme of a soda jerk, a phrase which here means “ice cream shop employee who is trying to injure your tongue,” and by the twelfth time you find a thumbtack, your despair is even greater still, until you can hardly utter the phrase “root beer float” without bursting into tears. It is almost as if happiness is an acquired taste, like coconut cordial or ceviche, to which you can eventually become accustomed, but despair is something surprising each time you encounter it.

Seattle, I’m looking at you.

You don’t like Ryan Gosling?

1. You’re lying.

2. Fine, how about Kurt Russel’s impenetrable, unfathomably thick and glorious beard, thicker than any other man’s actual hair has ever been, glistening in the strong light of the Antarctic sun?

Tonight, starting at 7pm at The Gypsy Café in Fremont, you can kick back, put your feet up on a coffee table and sink into the plush cushions of a comfortable couch to watch both The Thing (2011) and … The Thing (1982), back-to-back, as the makers of the former intended.

Will there be beer specials?

Yes, fake person I just created. Beer will be 50¢ off, meaning a bottle of PBR or Rainier (or other ‘low class’ beers) will only be $2.25, and subsequently the other 55 delicious 'high quality’ beers we serve will be a robust but still totally reasonable $3.25.

Will there be popcorn?

Oh my god, you are such a nag. Yes, there will be popcorn. Microwave popcorn, but hey, it’s good enough for millions of other Americans and it’s good enough for you. I slave all day over a hot microwave and you’re always so unsatisfied.

Will you be there?

Of course I will, fake person. Oppressing women’s reproductive rights and destroying the feminist movement while serving a bevy of delicious foodstuffs and fine coffee, as well as tinkering with the projector and singing bad pop songs in an off-key and horrible voice, as always.

Does it cost money?

OH MY GOD SHUT UP. NO. IT IS FREE.

For those of you too impatient to wait (like me!!!).

Thank you lizponce, you beautiful butterfly!

In which Reggie has no clue who Dylan O is, and has an obvious bias towards Terry Crews. Also Dyll bb? Finish your thoughts!
Part 3:


In which… wouldn’t it have been a better idea to put the mattress up first and then tie the sheets through the handles and anchor it that way? Also… “Stop, I’m beginning to hate you.” Also, also… stop taking things from Indian burial grounds. Part 4:


In which Dylan mostly just sits there looking fabulous, giving impeccable reaction shots and being all around adorable. <3
Coffee Date!

Fake it til you make it, ammirite?

Not pictured: the iced passion tea I also got from Starbucks. I am fading hard here. I think I have some sort of combination of a cold and allergies and all I want to do is sleep. So I’m popping CVS brand Zicam and getting lots of sleep and drinking water. I refuse to still feel ill on Friday, because I AM GOING TO ICELAND AND GERMANY!

I can’t even tell you all how excited I am. I’m heading to Iceland first, for a quick 48 hours and then heading on to Germany for a week. In addition to visiting my family there, I will be meeting angeldrinkstea (!!!!!!) and running a half marathon! And eating lots of delicious food and drinking delicious wine and beer. 

I just have to survive! Last week was a crazy crazy work week and this week is gearing up for some crazy too–which is why I’ve been AWOL on here lately. 

I have been running though! And guess what:

NIce and easier runs (except for that 10k which was a PR!). I’ve really really been concentrating on taking things from “race runs” to “regular runs” and I feel fairly successful (this cold is making it pretty easy to run easy too)! I have to admit, it’s still weird only because I feel like doing slower runs will make me a slower runner. But, my legs don’t feel as completely shot everyday so running more seems possible. I DO need to mix in some speed training though.

I’ve been reading Hansons Marathon Method and I’m tempted to drink the kool-aid and give it a shot. I’m worried about the volume causing an injury though. But the basis of more running=better running makes sense as does taking things easy so you’re not burning out on the high volume. I have about five  months between now and Chicago so I think I’m going to start bumping up the frequency of my runs over the next four weeks and see how my body responds. If I feel okay, I’ll go with Hansons. If I feel like my knees are about to give out on me, I’ll stick with a more traditional program. 

Chicago seems like the perfect marathon to give Hansons a shot, though. Mostly because after I return from Germany, I have nothing planned between then and the marathon. No weird trips or obligations that could deter me from the plan. No real crazy races either (although that will change, I’m sure. Summer time is trail time!). It’s definitely tempting.
