“This is the last thing dedicated to you. When I say let’s keep in touch, I hope you know I mean I wish that you’d grow up. You left the frays from the ties you severed when you say best friends means friends forever. Have another drink and drive yourself home. I hope there’s ice on all the roads.” —Brand New
Travelling through Ireland, you will see beautiful stone shapes called dolmens. A Dolmen is two massive, long tables of limestone. Over them as a kind of shelter is placed another giant cap stone. In the Celtic tradition these were known as ‘Leaba Dhiarmada agus Gráinne’, i.e. the bed of Diarmuid and Gráinne. The legend tell that Gráinne was to marry Fionn, chief of the Fianna, the old Celtic warriors. She fell in love with Diarmuid. The two of them eloped and the Fianna chased them all over Ireland. They were cared for by the animals and received advice from wise people. They were told, for instance, not to spend more than two nights in any one place. It was said that when they rested at night, Diarmuid put up the Dolmen as a shelter for his lover. The actual archeological evidence shows that these were burial places. The legend is more interesting and resonant. It is a lovely image of the helplessness which sometimes accompanies love. When you fall in love, common sense, rationality and your normal serious, reserved and respectable persona dissolve.You become revitalized. Where there is no passion, your soul is either asleep or absent. When your passion awakens, your soul becomes young and free and dances again. In this old Celtic legend, we see the power of love and the energy of passion.
Mydaily - Daum: “Just study”..‘Drinking Solo’, Key cries in the rain with Jung Chaeyeon’s
1. [+199, -7] He’s probably the best actor among SM kids
2. [+145, -5] The twist is that Prof Min is single
3. [+134, -1] The best part is when Prof Min’s alarm went off and parodied “What’s so important” before running away ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. [+82, 0] I kinda sensed that Prof Min is single anyway, he might end up with Prof Hwang. I seriously didn’t expect that his puppy’s name is “wife”! It’s so touching that he goes home early because he worries about his “wife”
5. [+42, 0] The dancing scene in the rain is so funny ~
6. [+34, 0] Key was actually raised by his grandma but years after his debut, she passed away… I didn’t watch this episode but his crying scene was simply not acting, it was geniune ㅜㅜ
7. [+34, -1] Had no idea Key was this good at acting
It’s very easy to pick up little wrong habits that go under the radar for awhile and mangling these was one of mine! So when do you know which one to use? It is v simple, you just need to know. (examples scooped from here b/c this is just a note)
有点儿 comes before an adjective (or occasional verb):
我 觉得 这 个 人 有点儿 懒。 I think this person is a little lazy.
在 这里 工作 有点累。 It is a little tiring to work here.
今天 有点儿 冷 Today it’s a little cold.
to use it with a negative just put it in front of the whole negative
我 还是 有点儿 不 明白。(lit: “a little not understand”) I still don’t really understand.
一点儿 comes after an adjective:
请 说 得 慢 一 点 儿。 Please speak a little more slowly.
快 一 点 儿，要 迟到 了。 A bit faster, we will be late.
我们 应该 做 得 好 一点儿。 We should make it a bit better.
to negate it you have to use the 一点都／也 structure, since “not a little bit” is essentially “not at all”
这 个 地方 的 衣服 一点儿 都 不 贵。 This place’s clothes are not expensive at all.
I really don’t get mad very often. I really don’t. Well, Cullen has a knack of getting me to cross over to the dark side easily, but for anybody else I run into I am usually able to give them the benefit of the doubt and also see there is bigger picture.
Not today. I went to Walgreens to get a prescription refilled. I had popsicles in the car. I pulled up to the drive thru to pick up a refill that had been previously called in for my daughter’s antibiotic, because it had spilled. The Doctor had already given a refill for it. As I talked to the tech she tells me my insurance won’t cover it and it will be $60. I explain again the situation to the tech. She tells me I have to call my insurance company. So I call my insurance company and they say Walgreens has a lost medicine code all they have to do it pop in that code for any lost medicine.
I pick my daughter up from ballet, go back to Walgreens. All I can think of is these popsicles melting in my car. I walk up in there, have to wait in line again. Finally make my way up there and same lady tells me she has never heard of a lost medicine code and they don’t have one. She walks away a few minutes and then realizes she does have a lost medicine code and tells me she just haven’t ever heard of it before. (I’m still thinking about these melting popsicles.) She tells me it will be another 20 minutes for them to fill it.
Wait, I called in the order way over an hour ago and you still need an extra 20 minutes.
Yes, I got mad. But I didn’t do anything about it. Since I don’t deal with this anger very often, I never know how to deal with it when it pops up. The poor girl was completely ignorant. That’s not her fault, don’t know if she will ever realize how annoying she is, but it was frustrating as all get out to me.
I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!! IS MAGNUS GOING TO GO BACK UP AND STAY AT THE PARTY??? IS HE GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER DRINK WITH ALEC????? WILL ALEC PERSUE HIM AND WANT TO DATE MAGNUS?????? WILL THEY LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER???????????? I NEED ANSWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with.
Cause I’ve seen more spine in jellyfish.
I’ve seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids.
Have another drink and drive yourself home.
I hope there’s ice on all the roads.
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
and again when your head goes through the windshield.
And is that what you call tact?
You’re as subtle as a brick in the small of my back.
So let’s end this call, and end this conversation.
and is that what you call a getaway?
well tell me what you got away with.
cause you left the frays from the ties you severed
when you say best friends means friends forever
I’m just kinda making the best of the shitty 70’s Kinks songs available on Spotify. Not that these songs aren’t great… just these Kinks albums as a whole from this era kinda suck, sans these songs I’m picking (I know my Kinks, people) and as such, are the best I can do.
