honestly though?? i wish that robbie had gotten character development because like.,.. we all know that he isn’t really evil, he’s just socially awkward and needs some sleep! it was revealed the episode the first day of summer that he really loves everyone, and in the greatest gift when he’s so happy to be at the party and he’s so happy people invited him and he was so nervous…. robbie just needs someone *cough*sportacus*cough* in his life to help reassure him that he means something to people. i just wanted to see robbie become more happy and become nicer to everyone in town, he can be as lazy as he wants either way.

one thing i really loved about a series of unfortunate events as a kid was how they introduced a word or phrase, gave a definition, and used it throughout that book. 

it was really neat and it meant i didn’t have to ask my mom what a word meant every few chapters, and i really appreciate that, and my mom probably would have, too. 

anonymous asked:

First of all : Happy New Year ! Can you write a prompt with Cat (or Kara) in tuxedo ?? Maybe for a New Year party ^^

Kara knocked on the door of the fitting room.  “Cat?”

The attendant, Marta, stood beside her, and after a discreet pause, also knocked.  “Missy Grant?”

A heavy sigh from within.  

“Cat,” Kara pressed.  “It can’t be that bad.  In fact, I’ll bet it looks great.”

Cat had lost a bet with Lois Lane.  It was an ill advised bet, one that Kara in fact had advised her not to take.  Even Kara knew that the Globetrotters never lost.  Cat had insisted that the Generals were due.  It all ended with Cat in the fitting room at her favorite exclusive boutique, trying on a tuxedo.

The door swung open.  Cat stood leaning in the doorway, hand on her hip, looking vaguely irritated.  Kara literally had to push her chin back up with her hand, because her mouth dropped open.  She looked like a tiny, blond, female James Bond.  Marta always did have a good eye.  It was a nice tuxedo.

“Wow, Cat,” Kara sighed.  

“I know,” Cat grumped.  “It’s ridiculous.”

There was this special feature on one of my blu-rays. Raw Footage of a Tour at Toei - got to see the studio as it was at 2009 and they kinda walk around and show the room where they did cel animation. And then of course said they don’t do cel animation anymore, everything is digital, but learning some tidbits of how they used to do things was so neat.

Like how shakes on screen were caused by manually shaking the cel because the camera could only go up or down. Like whooooooa.

More appreciation for cel animation for reaaaaaaal.

~ I wish you happiness, good health, and success! May this year be a new start for those who lived through hard times in 2016. May this year make the world better. You are awesome, all of you, and you deserve it. ~

Happy New Year!

Hey everyone!! Sorry to disturb you and everything, but I just wanted to wish everyone (and I mean everyone) the happiest new year! Whatever you’re doing, whether you’ve entered 2017 or not, I hope you’re having a great time and spending it with the people you love <3 <3

This has been my first holiday season and new year on Tumblr, and I think I’ve had this blog for around six months now? And it’s been an awesome time and I’ve made a lot of friends and talked to a lot of awesome people, and hopefully that can continue!! In fact I recently hit 400 followers which is just amazing?!

This is probably really cheesy but I wanted to thank some people for making these last six months that much better :) I’ll try to restrict my length but I’ll add a keep reading just in case!

so OMG I had thought about something similar when you sent me this! I had even started a mini!fic so I finished it (finally) and here it is! Hopefully you guys won’t hate it omg. I’m not the best writer.:’) But I LOVE this kind of scenario.

Title: Truce
Category: Batman » Rogue Gallery, Batman, Robin, Justice League
Pairings: Spring Madness (brief), Mad Love
Rating: Rated: K+
Genre: ??(I don’t even know pfft) End of the World (?) Humor
Words: 3049 

Don’t TOUCH ANYTHING. Got me?”

The stern, slightly gruff voice echoed throughout the walls of the famed, the glorious, the dark—and rather damp—Batcave. The strictness of the voice belonged to a personage who was really putting a dull vibe on the whole field trip. Well, to them it was a field trip. To Batman…it was a nightmare. An invasion of privacy.

It made his stomach twist painfully.

Adulting Lesson  #384

Stuff I wish somebody had told me in my twenties: 

Here it is: When it comes to being employed, ask for what you want. 

Case in point:

I took a temp job that paid less than what I wanted to make. Told the staffing agency this.  Asked up front if there was a raise if I got hired full-time. Answer was no.  But, I liked the location, the work, and the hours. Huh. It would get me through the holidays anyway because it’s a slow time to hire anything but retail.

Two weeks in, it’s easy to see that it’s a great place to work, and I like what I do. Plus, I get to wear jeans to the office and I only talk to people when I really need something. 

I want this job, except, you know, it pays a few bucks less than what I need to be making, and it’s only contract. I’ve been busting my butt to learn the system and show that I can do the job. 

I made a mistake today, but promptly got after fixing it. Jokingly, I told my boss, “I guess I won’t ask you what you think of my performance today.”  

She laughed a little, said mistakes were okay as long as I corrected them and didn’t make a habit of making the same ones repeatedly. 

But then she asked how I liked the job. Me, knowing I’m the EIGHTH person they’ve tried to put in the spot in the last 18 months, and having coaxed my coworkers into telling me what the other seven were lacking (split between work ethic and having no idea how projects work), I had to have the right answer. 

Hoo boy.  I’ve been rehearsing this conversation for three weeks now.  I told her (honestly) that I loved the job. Loved the hours. Loved the challenge. It’s perfect for my skill set.  

She asked if I thought I could do it long term. (THAT is her hot button–the thing I can leverage into getting what I want.) 

My answer?  YES. With a BUT attached. (See what I did there? Opened negotiations so I get what I want)

I told her I was making less than I needed, that I took the job because I thought it was a perfect match for my skill set. I told her that I could do an accounts payable job and make more, but I really wanted to stay because the work is MUCH more interesting.  Plus, I like the company. (Reiterate the key points–remember the boss works for the company too and wants to be patted on the back for making a good decision for working there.) Then I told her want I wanted (exact dollars, in this case, an hourly figure, but works with a salaried position), and that I wanted full-time (not contract) work.  

And then I asked her how we could bridge that gap so I can stay. (Demonstrates that I know my value but that I’m willing to negotiate.)  

So now the ball is in her court. If she says she can’t do anything, she knows I’m not likely to stay.  (Not good for either of us.) 

As it turns out, she didn’t even skip a beat. Straight up, she told me she was willing to negotiate. She offered full-time right off the bat, said we might need to compromise a little on the money, but she’d see what she can offer on her end. I’ll lay a twenty that she splits the difference with me.

I’m good with that. 

Friends: This has been my experience no matter what industry I’ve been in. I’ve asked for part-time work when the job was a full-time gig because my kid needed me at home in the afternoons. I’ve negotiated more vacation time when I couldn’t get more pay because a company was too new and small to offer much, but I wanted the challenge of setting up a whole new office and staff. I’ve negotiated different working hours on pretty much every job I’ve ever had. 

Ask. Ask. Ask. Ask. 

I learned this the hard way when I worked for a jerk who went two years without bothering to review me or give me a raise.


NOBODY is looking out for you at your job. NOBODY is going to give you anything–not money or responsibilities–unless you ASK for it.  

Be brave. Know what you are worth. Research on the internet if you don’t know what your job should be paying. Look at job boards to see what your skills are valued at.  

Know what you need to be making to achieve your goals.  ASK for that. And then, it’s okay to ask for MORE than what you need, because you might get that too. 

And that, padawan, is the lesson for the day from the middle-aged side of Tumblr. 

Oops. One more thing. Stay out of retail. If you’re stuck in retail hell, go find a staffing agency and show them how your cashier time proves you know numbers (also works in the banking industry!), or how your customer skills can get you into inside or outside sales or on-line tech support. Or how you can do warehouse work because you understand inventory. LEVERAGE THOSE SKILLS.   

HAM: He looked at me like I’m stupid. I’m NOT stupid?

(Exactly nine seconds later)

BURRG: *is deeply questioning Ham’s sanity* Yh, ryt. NOT STOOPID.



it’s 10:15 am in nyc

My gift to @scandinavian-pleather for the @frukgiftexchange! I was chosen to be your pinch-hitter sweetheart and I hope you’ll like your gift <33

I tried to use two of your wishes, so Arthur traveled to Paris to spend the holidays with his lover, and they watched the fireworks together on New Years Eve~ If you want, you can also imagine that he’s going to make a surprise and propose to Francis really soon ;D I also tried to put the fireworks <3
