i just want to rest of resting

When you can’t be bothered to do anything.

What do people think of the “Trump Humiliated By Health Care Failure” and “Health Care Rejection Shows Trump Is Already Lame Duck” and “Paul Ryan: Worst Speaker Of All Time?” discourse?

Most people I trust seem to think the health care bill was crap. Blaming people for writing a crappy health care bill seems fair enough.

But there seems to be more of an element of picking on them for being too weak to pass the bill, as if now they’re losers and we can never respect them again.

Can we just say something like “Elected officials should propose bills that they and their constituents want, give the rest of the country a chance to weigh in, and if the rest of the country says no, that means democracy is working and they should come back with something better”?

Like, this is complicated because I don’t want Republicans to pass a health care bill right now. But if this were actually important legislation, I would want the government to say “Good thing the American people made their voices heard,” roll up their sleeves, and then write a better bill.

Whereas now it seems like the incentive is to never propose anything that doesn’t have a 100% chance of getting passed the first time. And the other incentive is to desperately try to steamroll your legislation over everyone’s opposition and never admit you’re wrong, because if it fails (even for good reason) everyone will make fun of you.

Or am I missing something important here?

Can I get an 8,000 word thesis on that dreamcatcher though? Did Killian just find a dreamcatcher to pull his memories into? Did they have extras lying around the house? DID HE MAKE IT? CAN KILLIAN STILL HAVE MAGIC?!? I want eighteen fics on this, please and thank you. 

Beauty and the Beast

Micro-reaction: Well, at least Luke Evans can sing. 

The rest: Because (goddess Audra McDonald aside) the rest of them were sure struggling. I thought Stevens did fine, considering he’d never sung before, but the rest of y’all need to learn some support. Do you remember the scene in Sister Act when Whoopi shoves her hand into the solar plexus of that tiny little ginger nun and all of a sudden she can belt? That’s what I wanted to do to Emma Watson. Just … find some power already. 

ANYWAY.

I’m going to go ahead and say this was greater than the sum of its parts. It’s a perfectly fine movie, it’s very pretty. I didn’t dislike it, but the more I think about it, the more I annoyed I am by almost every element of it.

They took out the most aggressively misogynistic bits, which I was grateful for, but I wasn’t keen on the Romeo & Juliet sideline, or making Gaston into a flat out wanna be murderer, or Le Fou, just, at all. It really rubs me the wrong way that they’re taking credit for the first openly gay Disney character and then making him a simpering twat whose name is literally the fool. That’s almost more insulting than if there hadn’t been a gay character at all. Also, Josh Gad was just not good. I did like how much Stanley liked wearing his dress though, that was adorable. 

Also, how do you fuck up a dress that badly? That yellow dress is absolutely mythical in and of itself, why on earth would you change that? Why would you change it to something SO BAD? Like, if you’ve got to change the dress to put a new mark on it, at least make it a good dress.  

I will give them credit though for making the town population at least slightly more diverse than the super white original. And Evans really was a FANTASTIC Gaston.

The final take: I understand things had to be changed from the original in order to make it fresh, I just don’t think all the things they changed were for the better.

Do you think you'll do a sequel to Good Boy where the main character treats Jimin better? Like, they date and are happy but not in the bed room, that's kinda her thing. But I hate the idea of her just toying with Jimin while fucking other guys and HURTING him. It's one thing for her to toy with him in the bedroom but in life :((( I'm sorry if this is weird haha I'm a trained dominatrix and I loved the story I just want Jimin to be SUPER happy and them to date for real and stuff

I don’t know what to tell you. I’m not going to spoil the rest of the story for anyone, so I can’t say what will and what won’t happen. I’m sorry you had a feeling Jimin was getting hurt in any way, that’s not what I had in mind when I was writing that chapter, and that’s now what I have in mind for the rest of the story. If you’re offended or triggered by the story in any way, please don’t read it. I’m no forcing anyone to read it and I don’t want anyone to read something they feel bad about. In the next couple of chapters, you’ll get more information about Jimin and his sexual experience, as well as the OC and her sexual experience.

i'm scared to ask this but what happened in chile today?

I usually don’t discuss drama openly on this blog and will typically ask you guys to personally message me off anon, but this is way too important.

So apparently “fans” were bothering BTS at their hotel (i.e. screaming for them, making lots of noise) and they couldn’t even rest. Then when they left the hotel to try to relax and eat at a restaurant, the fans followed them there… They were again being loud and disturbing the boys. According to @we-breathe-bangtan-sonyeondan, there were videos of someone explaining to these “fans” that “the boys were tired and needed to eat and then to rest for the concert. However, a group of 20-30 people were arguing that they just wanted to see them or greet them. They even said that BTS were artists and that they owed(?) the fans some sort of greeting or recognition. The person tried to explain that there were fans screaming and disturbing BTS all day and that they just wanted to rest, but the “fans” kept demanding some sort of recognition.”

I really cannot stress how ridiculous this situation is. Yes, not all fans are like this, but these fans are the fans BTS were first greeted with upon their arrival to Chile. Imagine how stunned BTS is right now. So called “fans” are not even letting them eat or sleep? Are BTS not humans like us? 

This is not exclusive to Chile, as we all know from Bon Voyage, this happened in Europe as well. Fans chased after BTS, forced them to give signatures, recorded them, followed them to hotels, and many more horrifying things. BTS has no obligation or reason to interact with fans during their “free-time” and that’s that. Imagine if you were on a plane for hours, were tired, jetlagged, hungry, exhausted, and were then greeted with screams, groups of people following you, acting like YOU owed them something. How would you feel? Frustrated? Mad? Irritated? That’s probably exactly what BTS is feeling right now.

I know not all of us are seeing BTS in concert even though they are visiting our countries or cities, but that gives you absolutely no right to treat them the way they were treated today. 

Furthermore, if you guys don’t want to treat BTS like human beings and respect them, don’t call yourself a fan or an ARMY. Also don’t expect BTS to come to your country again and don’t complain if they don’t return.

One thing about chronic illnesses that people really don’t seem to understand is that rest doesn’t make it better, at best it can slow down how bad you feel at that time or help it feel a bit more bearable but it’ll get worse if it wants to whether you’re resting or not

Sometimes you’ll be forced to rest because you can’t do anything else, but that doesn’t mean resting makes it better. When you’re chronically ill, you don’t get better, and rest definitely doesn’t leave you feeling refreshed and full of energy

If your whole body hurts and it’s painful to move then you have to rest but it’s horrible doing that the whole time, I know you’re supposed to rest when you’re sick but actually a lot of spoonies I’ve talked to hate it and would love to be able to be more active but we can’t - the last thing we want to do is spend more time at home in bed on our own

Resting doesn’t make anything better for me, it just helps to stop it being worse - everything can still hurt if I don’t do anything and I’d be happier if I could go out, even if that would hurt much more
