i know one of you will buy this

Man you can tell Millennials aren’t buying houses because homeowner’s insurance companies really have not caught up with us in terms of 

“I want to get this quote online”
“My phone number: an epic poem about how I never answer my phone unless I know who’s calling”
“I am not buying a conventional standalone house” 

Like damn, son, do you sell insurance to anyone under forty? 

Of the six places I’ve tried to get a quote from so far, three required my phone number (the other three required it but didn’t fuss when I entered all zeros), one’s website broke when I tried to customize a quote, two couldn’t provide me with an online quote at all, and three didn’t have options for entering data that wasn’t about a freestanding house. (OR a “Victorian row house” which, LOL – those were my options, freestanding house or VICTORIAN ROW HOUSE. I wish.) And all of them also want to sell me car insurance for the car I do not have. 

Progressive has a so-called “condominium” insurance quote but once you get to the bit where you actually tell them about your home it is PAINFULLY OBVIOUS they are ill-equipped to deal, because they want to know if I have a bungalow or a victorian row house condo. Though they do win for best hilarious question with “Does this home have a trampoline?”

Also, yikes Safeco: If you own one of the following breeds of dogs, it may raise your insurance rates: Akita, Chow, Doberman, Pitbull, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Rottweiler, Presa Canarios, wolf hybrid or a mix of these.

I’ve never even fucking HEARD of the Presa Canarios. I googled, and they’re quite handsome animals, but I can see how they might be tarred with the same unfair brush as a pittie. 

Aw, puppy. 

Props to Geico, who instead asked simply “Do you have or care for an animal who is vicious or attack trained”, a much better question. 

PS: Dear insurance agencies my birthdate is the fifth of none of your fucking business, 1979. (I know they need to know how old I am but they don’t need my actual birthdate, that’s nonsense.)

I remember going into Target on 1989 release day, and mind you I live in a SMALL TOWN, as I started making my way through the aisles towards the electronics section an employee said to me “are you getting the new Taylor Swift CD?” So I was like yeah! It really surprised me he said that out of the blue. So he was like “man, so many people have been coming in and buying that one album” and if that right there doesn’t tell you the power of a Taylor then I don’t know what to tell you.

s/o to taylor for not having gorgeous be one of those basic "i love myself and all girls are beautiful and you should love yourself too" songs that have spiked in pop culture recently and instead completely buying into that vain and petty culture of appearances i was worried for a sec but no she just revels in the simple emotion of "hes hot as hell" like i KNEW she could pull off a love myself trope but BOY am i glad she's still busy being iconic and doing her own thing

i have an issue with this message mostly because as an ugly bitch who knows she’s an ugly bitch, i kind of NEED those kind of songs like very fucking much? i also understand what you mean in saying she didnt go the expected route though. just…..idk i think what youre saying and  how youre saying it is like “good concept, bad execution” to me lmao????

Hey so I know you’re vegetarian/vegan, any tips for the transition/keeping up with it? I really want to start eating well and being vegetarian is cheaper than buying meat every week, thanks!

Ooh this is a good question, as it’s something a lot of new vegans and vegetarians struggle with.

Have a reason for doing it! It sounds like you have some good reasons already. If you’re interested in the health aspects, look up some credible studies about meat consumption and health. If you’re doing it to save money, put aside the few extra dollars per week you would have spent on meat and save up to buy yourself something nice! If you’re doing it for the animals, look at pictures of cute rescued animals, or visit an animal sanctuary! You could also look at undercover farm investigations, but I don’t recommend this as it’s usually very upsetting and graphic.

Look up recipes that make you excited to cook and eat meat-free. Pinterest, Tumblr, and Youtube are great for this! My favorite plant-based recipe blogs and channels are: Cheap Lazy Vegan, Liv’s Healthy Life, Mary’s Test Kitchen, Hot for Food, Minimalist Baker, and Simple Veganista. Figure out tastes and textures that you like. Use seasonings; food should taste good!

Good luck!– Mimi

When we picked up the new Tesla yesterday a mid-20s, very techie guy was showing us some of the features.

He said that the car uses a program (I forget which one. Spotify? Pandora? Hell, I don’t know.) to play music. He told me, “If you have a favorite singer, tell the car to play something by that person or band.”

So, naturally, I said, “Play Dove Cameron Better in Stereo.”

As it started to play, the mid-20s, very techie guy flashed me a momentarily look that said, “Who let this guy buy a Tesla? I predict trouble.”

And, yes, I drove home from the Distribution Center, blaring the song.

Life when you give no f*cks, Man!

This is what I just said to a particularly nasty critic on Vulture.

You and critics like you are the very reason she’s refusing to give the media anything this time around. She’s not letting you in this time. Reputation is for her fans. The people she knows get her and will happily buy millions of her albums.

She’s figured out something. She doesn’t need you. She doesn’t need the media. She’s one of the most powerful female musicians on the planet and she’s left you all in the dust to twiddle your thumbs and talk shit about how you think she’s gonna fail.

Your opinions don’t matter to her like they used too. I love seeing how perplexed and butthurt the press is about her refusal to play their games. I hope more female musicians take her lead.

@taylorswift we’ve got your back forever girl.

When you finally start getting child support again and it couldn’t have come at a better time 👌🏼 my boys needs new shirts! I literally just made him try on all this long sleeve shirts from last year a couple weeks ago when I was buying him jeans .. and they all fit.. he put one on that I know we tried on the other day and it’s too small. This child grows like a weed.

Teenage me would not believe that nearly 29-year-old me tries to buy the same exact style of trousers, shoes, and button-ups.

Do you know how many plaid shirts I have that are the exact same style but in different colours? Four. I have four of them and I have to stop myself from picking another one up.

I’m also still sad that I only have one of a certain trouser left and in a colour I’m not very fond of, but they’re so comfortable and so perfect.

I do have cute leggings and more exciting clothing but since I work from home and pretty rarely go out anywhere I tend to dress purely for comfort, which is, honestly, not a bad way to be.

it is Almost Snake Buy Time hhhhhhHHHHH

won’t personally get it for another month or so bc waiting for it to be shipped until mid-Novemeber after all my work trips for the year are over. but!!!!!!

lmao i am once more Felled by my expensive taste tho… my general thought process the last two and a half months of waiting to buy one has been:

  • it’s fine i don’t need a specific morph or anything, a junky bci for $100 will totally fit my needs
  • maybe i want a nice morph after all, i should at least look
  • you know the one thing these morphs all lack is that super bright red tail i know and love. i can spring for an expensive normal
  • well… a normal bci is just a toned down version of the colors in a bcc, so maybe i really want a cheap bcc after all
  • whoops ive discovered locality boas but its FINE a nice normal suriname is perfect and they’re most common
  • WHAT ABOUT THIS SEMI RARE LOCALITY THO look at all the nice undertones 
  • oh no im committed to expensive guyanese snakes now ;_;
highlight of my day #6

Passing by guitar stores and day dreaming about learning to play acoustic guitar. 

All the while knowing that while I can afford to buy one now. 
I can’t afford the time to learn it. Given my schedule. Given my life now.

Among so many other things in life I’ll probably never get a chance to do anymore or learn. 

Time seems so infinite in high school and college. But you feel trapped in an unrealized future at the same time. 

And yet if I had to do it all again. 
I’d still pick the life I had now. 

Not that there’s any do-overs, anyway.

It’s a weird realization, of how limited time is. It was in Steve Job’s Stanford address. Your time is limited. I didn’t really get that before, not in the way I do now.

Hello. Awhile ago I saw a post circulating that said dance tops would be a good substitute for binders. I tried looking for the brand they recommended (C9 Champion dancetops), but it is no longer sold by them. I know nothing about dance and was unsuccessful at googling for a different kind because I didn't know what was good or not. Do you or your followers have any recommendations of what brand/where to buy good ones? Thanks!

I’ve never used a dance top so I don’t know, sorry.

If any of my followers do, please do feel free to add to this post and tell us!

You should watch Gravity Falls it's awesome I was the one who said "Remember! Reality is an illusion, the universe is a hologram, buy gold, BYE!" to see if anyone knew what show it was from.

((I really want to!! It sounds super awesome, exactly my kind of thing, I just don’t really get many opportunities to watch tv ;-; but yeah there’s these siblings I know who are going on a rampage through my school writing that on every whiteboard with Bill Cipher on it too XD))

anonymous asked:

Follow up question to the tablet question! I know the companion has a screen you can draw directly on. For the others that don't have screens and you have to look up at one, instead of down at your hand, how do you recommend getting used to it? I'm looking to buy a graphics tablet, but not sure how much it's worth it to spring on one with a screen.

i would say if you’re a beginner, don’t go with one where you look directly on the screen, mostly because they’re way more expensive and they’re more of an investment once you get more into the professional side of art!

as for getting used to not looking at your hand, everyone is different, so everyone takes a different amount of time to get used to it! if you’re used to traditional art where you’re used to looking at your hand, it can take a few weeks of trial and error to get used to how a tablet pen feels in your hand compared to traditional pens/pencils/etc

my best tip is to imagine the pen like it’s a replacement for a computer mouse. the pointer on the screen is the hand that you move with a mouse, except this time you’re moving a pen across a tablet surface!

here’s a super old dA thread about the subject if you want to pick out some different tips from the replies, and other artists might reply to this with some tips of their own!

I am in my own Harry Potter AU hell.

And just because I can:

“Dad…” 

Malfoy looked up from his desk, quill poised over the parchment as his son hovered by the study door. Aware that he was frowning, Draco lifted his expression into something more neutral. He was vaguely aware of his own father always frowning whenever he’d tried to talk to him as a boy, and he didn’t want Scorpius to one day think the same about him.

“Come in, come in. Shut the door, you’ll let the heat out.” 

The Greengrass estate was a crumbling ruin compared to Malfoy Manner, with only half the library and none of the artifacts Draco had spent the last few years archiving and putting safely away behind spelled glass. But for now it was home, chilly stone walls and all.

“Did you want something?”

“Yes.” Scorpius replied, pausing to tug at the hem of his dark shirt. There’s still a bruise under his eye, faded to be sure, but the mere presence of it made Draco’s heart skip a beat. When he’d seen Severus Potter crawling out of the rubble, face covered in blood and no sign of his own son, he’d known terror like no other.

And Draco Malfoy was intimately familiar with the machinations of terror. He’d been hugged by it once.

“Well,” he prompted, setting aside his work entirely and giving his full attention to his son. “What is it?”

“I want my friends to come visit.”

Draco blinked. Whatever he’d been expecting, it wasn’t that. “Your…friends?”

“Albus Potter and Rosie Granger-Weasley. I would like them to come stay.”

Draco blinked again. Later he’d laugh—somewhat despairingly into a decanter of fire brandy—at the absurdity of the notion that his boy, Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy, was best friends with a Potter and the hybrid off-spring of a Granger Weasley, but the threat of impeding hysterics was quelled under the defiant gaze of his son, narrow chin lifting at some unspoken challenge. 

“I see. For how long?”

“A…a week…maybe two…They’re going to France for the Quiditch Cup Primaries…” he glanced down and Draco spied the curled up parchment hidden up his sleeve. “So it wouldn’t be for long.”

Draco glanced at his desk, to the fireplace, then back to his son. “I don’t…”

I want my friends…friendshow often had Astoria lamented his lack of playmates as a child, how often had she fretted that Scorpius’ only interaction had been with adults—or books, or enchanting his own toys for someone to play with. And how quickly had Scorpius’ face crumpled at the utterance of two simple syllables. 

“…know if two weeks would be wise, given your mother’s health. She’s still recovering from the move. But I shall discuss it with her, and see what can be done.”

Scorpius stilled, the beaming smile on his face reigned in to something calmer, even now, not wanting to get his hopes up too much. “Thank you. For what it’s worth, we will be good.”

Draco snorted at that, remembering the last time a Malfoy, a Potter and a Granger and a Weasley had been together at their age. “Somehow I doubt it. Go on off you go, go see what your mother is up to. She’s enjoying having you home.”

“And I am enjoying being here,” Scorpius replied, in that curiously courteous and stiff way of speaking he’d always had, even as an infant learning his words. “I am happy to be here, with you, and mother.”

“I’m…very glad to hear it.” Draco replied, unsure what else he was supposed to say to such an open admission said so politely like one was discussing the weather. “Now go on, off you go, I need to finish this manuscript before I lose the thought.”

“You’ll talk to mother though, wont you?” Scorpius pressed from his space by the door. “You’ll ask…”

“Yes, yes.” Draco waved a hand, “I’ll ask if the Potter spawn can come stay with us. Just for a little bit. To say thank you for…everything.”

Reassured, Scorpius left, closing the door behind himself with a firm click. 

Draco waited several more moments, counting to a hundred before opening up the top desk of his drawer and pulling out his correspondence folder, flipping through them until he found the appropriate manila envelope, writing the address of the Ministry Neatly to the front. 

Clearing his throat politely, he composed himself, then tapped it to life with his wand.

“Hello Potter,” he spat with a vicious familiar glee, unable to keep from laughing, “I’m not sure which one of us is going to be more surprised by this turn of events, but I swear to gods if you break my son’s heart by saying no, I will personally send you a red Howler on the hour every hour till the day one of us dies. Now, about dates, the last week in June works well for us…”

Where did all those feelings go? People spend their whole lives looking for love. Poems and songs and entire novels are written about it. But how can you trust something that can end as suddenly as it begins?
