i probably missed someone

Dear Strange Man on the Train,

At 11 o’clock at night, you moved across the train car to sit far too close to two girls about half your age so you could interrupt our conversation to tell us how pretty we are. We said thank you, have a good night, and went back to our conversation.

You interrupted us a second time to say that you didn’t want to bother us, but we needed to hear it, how pretty we are. We said cool, thanks, have a good night, and went back to our conversation.

You interrupted us a third time to say you wouldn’t say anything else, you didn’t want to bother us, you just had to let us know. We said have a good night, and went back to our conversation.

This seemed to perplex you. You came all that way across a train car to bestow upon us this life altering knowledge - the fact we were pretty - and all you got was a polite thank you? You grumbled about gratitude, about how you better not end up on facebook, were we putting you on facebook? Why was my friend looking at her phone? Was she putting you on facebook? All you’d done was tell us we were pretty.

At this point, my friend says, “Sir, we’re trying to have a conversation. Please don’t be disrespectful.”

This was when you got angry. Disrespectful? YOU? For taking the time out of your day to tell us we were pretty? Did we know we were pretty?

“Yes, we knew,” says my friend.

Well, that was the last straw. How dare we know we were pretty! Sure, you were allowed to tell us we were pretty, but we weren’t allowed to think it independently, without your permission! And if we had somehow already known - perhaps some other strange man had informed us earlier in the day - we certainly weren’t allowed to SAY it! Where did we get off, having confidence in ourselves? You wanted us to know we were pretty, sure, but only as a reward for good behavior. We were pretty when you gifted it upon us with your words, and not a moment before! You raged for a minute about how horrible we were for saying we thought we were pretty, how awful we turned out to be.

I took a page out of your book and interrupted you. “Sir, you said you wouldn’t say anything else, and then you kept talking,” I said. “You complimented us, we said thank you, and we don’t owe you anything else. It’s late, you’re a stranger, and I don’t want to talk to you. We’ve tried to disengage multiple times but you keep bothering us.”

At this point, our train pulled into the next stop. My friend suggested we leave, so we got up and went to the door.

Seeing your last chance, you lashed out with the killing blow. “I was wrong!” you shouted at us as we left, “You’re ugly! You’re both REALLY UGLY!”

Fortunately, since our worth as human beings is in no way dependent upon how physically attractive you find us, my friend and I were unharmed and continued on with our night. She walked home; I switched to the next train car and sat down.

So, strange man, I know you’re confused. I don’t know if you’ll think about anything I said to you, but I hope you do learn this: when you give someone something - a gift, a compliment, whatever - with stringent stipulations about how they respond to it, you are not giving anything. You are setting a trap. It is not as nice as you think it is.

But you’ll be happy to know that when I sat down in the next car, a strange man several seats over called, “Hey, pretty girl. Nice guitar. How was your concert?”

“Thanks. Good,” I said, then looked away and put on my headphones, the universal sign for ‘I’d like to be left alone.’

“Wow. Fine. Whatever. Fucking bitch,” he said.

I wasn’t planning to do one of these, but 2016 can’t end fast enough and I think we all need some love at the moment so whatever. This year may not have been the best overall (understatement of the year, 2016 was a disaster), but I also made a bunch new friends who became very dear to me so I can’t say that everything that happened in 2016 was the Worst because I’m too happy to have found some of you.

Everyone on the following list is quite precious to me! Some are new (thank you for following me), some have been with me forever (thank you for staying with me), some allow me to get on their nerves a lot and actually talk to me (i love you, darlings! ♥), and I can’t believe that most of these guys are actually following me (seriously, you’re all way cooler than me), but no matter what, you all deserve the best!

Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2017 will be kinder.

IS THIS CAT YOURS??

We found her hanging out around our house in Kitchener/Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) and she kept on meowing at our window. We’re feeding her and have two other cats and everything needed to take care of her, and shes a really nice cat, but I’m guessing she belongs to someone else.

So if you’ve lost a cat or know someone whose lost a cat that looks like this one (and are somewhere in the area) then please message me!

Note: I’m not sure that this cat is a she, and the collar we added because she didn’t have one

anonymous asked:

So, can we get your head cannons on the X-Boys being asked to go dress shopping for date night?

Alex Summers

This boy is fucking whipped and will do whatever you want because he just loves being with you. Plus he gets to help you out in the dressing room.

Scott Summers

He would probably be a little irritated until you walked out of the dressing room with a skimpy little number on and he busts a nut right there and tries to fuck you in the dressing room.

Erik Lehnsherr

Doesn’t mind too much. He will probably drift of in the store and find something to look at. The excited look in your eyes when you find something that you just love is worth it if he has to spend a while in one store.

Charles Xavier

He has endless patience, especially after running the school for so long, so if you’re taking a little too long then he’ll be fine waiting for you. 

Hank McCoy

He’s never liked clothes shopping but will come willingly and probably carries everything you pick out.

Warren Worthington

This boy is just as whipped as Alex and will buy you anything you want and will go where ever you want because, “Whatever my baby girl wants, my baby girl gets.”

Kurt Wagner

He has quite the fashion sense and loves to shop with you because you both pick out stuff for each other and sometimes the choices are a little bit out there but you try them on anyway.

tfw you’ve recolored a hair, but when you go in cas to test it you notice this like, awful glaring hole in the mesh and you’re like ??? i can’t share this?? what will my fellow farmers think about me?

Sorey/Mikleo Is Romantic and Canon, the Cross-Tales Edition

Originally, I was going to wait on doing this until after I’d finished my NG+ play through since I’d spread out my original play through over 6 months (so my memory of mid-game SoreMiku is a little fuzzy, while early game and end game are like, crystal clear, lol), but since I’ve been seeing a few “SoreMiku is platonic” or “they’re just bros” and similar reblogs and comments, I figure now is as good a time as any to write this: SoreMiku is a romantic and canon ship, the cross Tales of Series edition.  Also known as: “And you wonder why a lot of us think SoreMiku is romantic when (insert other couple here) gets to do this.”

Cutting for length (this monster wall of text was nearly 3 pages long in Word), spoilers everywhere for other games:

mc’s reset theory

this is intended to be just a little taste of how i write, but nevertheless, v, unknown and rika are not included in this but i will do them if asked to continue this ^^

(this was based off a prompt i had in the works for a while, probably around the time the reset theory came around, for those who were curious, it is focused around mc’s feelings and her/him/them being the only one with all the memories of all the routes, basically it’s the seven theory excluding the seven part)




Yoosung

  • i think it would be hard to just look the poor guy in the eyes
  • you’d just get reminded of the way he used to look at you with those lovestruck puppy eyes ohmyofd
  • his heart would probably hurt whenever he sees you and he wouldn’t know why
  • “?? did i overdo the chips? my cholesterol??”
  • thinks he’s sick or something
  • poor kid
  • i feel like he’d be the person who’d be like “i feel like something or someone is missing” probably rika oh

Zen

  • oh great
  • it would be so goddamn hard not to fall in love all over again
  • stOP FLIRTING WITH ME MY HEART HURTS
  • honestly you tear up everytime he calls you a petname
  • “hey babe– oh?? wha–”
  • “zen made her cry again!! get him!!!” lmao that’s seven
  • this is making me sad
  • anyways
  • despite all this he feels strangely attracted to you
  • you continuously shrug him off and even fall in love with another but he still cannot get over this nostalgic feeling
  • yo what if the dream he had when he said he saw you in on day 1 was just a fragment of his memory that didn’t get totally erased ohmy

Jaehee

  • ok i might really cry
  • poor baby oh no
  • of course you’d still be good friends but
  • something is missing??
  • when she first sees you she cannot help but already feel familiar and comfortable around you
  • like ?? but i haven’t seen this woman before in my life ???
  • you can’t bear being in coffee shops anymore
  • just the smell of coffee & steam of biscuits remind you of her can you hear me crying
  • cue crying to the afternoon dramas you two used to watch together

Jumin

  • honestly i see him dismissing the weird feeling in his chest
  • when you two met in real life for the first time his heart ached
  • “something must be wrong with me.. this feeling of deja vu???”
  • a really sad man
  • needs constant comfort from elizabeth
  • he’s never felt so lonely and miserable in his whole life before
  • honestly would react like yoosung and get help from a doctor
  • “my heart has been acting up, is something the matter with me, doctor?”
  • yeah boy you’re lovesick

Seven

  • yep this is where i legit start crying
  • this poor poor poor man
  • he gets so confused when you get emotional
  • seeing him acting like 707 breaks your heart
  • you know how much pain he’s going through but you cannot reach out to him as it is the game’s rules
  • fuCK YOU GAME I WOULD GLADLY DO HIS ROUTES A MILLLION TIMES OVER
  • when he calls you for the first time you start crying
  • he tears up too
  • he doesn’t know what’s wrong with him as he usually keeps his feelings under check
  • “let’s get married at the space station”
  • [screaming]

Would you look at that?!

I have officially reached 4.5k.

I really never thought I’d have 100 followers around here let alone 4.5k. Geez.

No celebration this time because my personal life is similar to a tasteless joke lately, BUT I’ll see what I can while up should 5k ever become a reality.

Thank you guys so much. I owe you so incredibly much. Shout out to a few that are always there encouraging me and lifting me up in the good and bad times. @torn-and-frayed @loveitsallineed @deansdirtylittlesecretsblog @chaos-and-the-calm67 @thing-you-do-with-that-thing @captainradicalpassion @leatherwhiskeycoffeeplaid @impalapossible @ilostmyshoe-79 @winchester-writes @whispersandwhiskerburn @ellen-reincarnated1967 @katnharper @frenchybell @avasmommy224 @chelsea072498 @blacktithe7 @bloodysideofhell @nichelle-my-belle @mrswhozeewhatsis @percywinchester27 @dorky-and-i-know-it @jessica-bones-winchester @dancingalone21 - to name a few. I know I probably missed someone important, and if I did I’m incredibly sorry. 😘💖😍

partywithponies  asked:

This might be an unpopular opinion, but my favourite character is Onion, because he's just so small and sweet and misunderstood and wants to be Steven's friend so badly, and my favourite episode is Onion Gang, because, duh, Onion, poor baby. I love that this episode made more people see in Onion what I'd always seen in him, he's not evil or creepy, he's just a lonely child. :D (My favourite gem meanwhile is probably Jasper. I miss her.)

I know someone who REALLY loves Onion, and the whole Onion family, so I don’t think it’s that unpopular of an opinion!

I really like him too! He’s not that bad, he’s just misunderstood. And ‘Onion Gang’ was the CUTEST EPISODE. I still miss the pantry of friends.

(P.S. - #BringBackJasper2k17)

killmewithcuteness  asked:

How about 26 with morgan and reid (criminal minds) bc there needs to be more content for reid :3c

“No. No. Nope. Also no. Absolutely not.”

“So,” Reid said, with a perfectly straight expression in the face of Morgan’s growing panic, “You’re telling me that you’re not ticklish?”

“Not even a little bit,” Morgan repeated firmly. At least he hoped he’d managed to sound firm. Though by the look on Reid’s face, he wasn’t succeeding as well as he’d like to think. “Bye.”

Reid rolled his eyes. “Morgan. We’re stuck in an elevator together, and we’re probably going to stay that way for a while until someone – Garcia, probably – notices we’re missing. I am physically unable to leave.”

“Well… stop interrogating me! We can sit in silence.”

Prior to those words, Morgan hadn’t thought it was possible for Reid to raise his eyebrows that high. “Clearly this topic of conversation is making you uncomfortable-”

“Which should tell you to drop it…”

“-Indicating that you must be incredibly ticklish.”

“… But of course you won’t,” Morgan sighed. “You know, you can be-” he broke off with a strangled yelp when Reid reached over to tickle his stomach. “Reid!”

“I’m testing a hypothesis,” Reid replied innocently, continuing to wriggle his fingers over Morgan’s stomach and sides while Morgan tried to knock his hands away. “Which you led me to do, really, by so adamantly deny-hahaha, Morgahahan!”

“Hey, you started it, pretty boy. Good to know that you’re ticklish too.”

oh my goodness so hey I hit my big goal and so I am doing a follow forever :) If I forgot anyone please do not be offended I love you all equally! (Also the banner was made by the lovely this-little-nerd)
