i use that loosely

All ready for Hurricane Maria, we left our apartment because we’re not 100% sure it’ll withstand a category 5 hurricane and we’re gonna be staying at my aunt’s house which has an electrical generator and alternative water supply. We’ve stocked up on food and water for weeks and also diapers and wipes. I’m terrified, completely. Everyone needs to be inside their houses or shelters by 6:00 pm but I have an appointment at 11:30 with my gynecologist to get my dui that I can’t miss cause only god knows when we’ll be able to even leave a house again. The thing that scares me the most is not being able to communicate with my sister and with S, they’re far far away but they’re always looking out for us and they’re very very scared for us and I know that as soon as we loose communication they’ll go crazy and of course running out of food or water. We haven’t recovered from Irma and tomorrow we’ll get hit by Maria. Please if you believe in praying, pray for us, if you believe in vibes send us the good ones, whatever your choice, please keep the Caribbean and especially us in your thoughts.

A Plea

I’ve been really giving this a lot of thought regarding the chick who I will not name and her minions regarding all of their bullshit about Benedict and his family and I truly believe that this woman (and I’m using that term VERY loosely) is a narcissist. Now, I’m am not licensed professional, BUT I have dated one or two, hell, possibly THREE narcissists and I’ve discussed narcissism in length with my therapist so I think I can easily spot a narcissist when I see one. She has ALL of the characteristics. The biggest and most important characteristic of a narcissist is that they feed off of the energy of others, be it positive or negative. They need it to sustain their own energy and for validation. Without it, they will wither away and die, figuratively and in some cases, literally. The reason why I’m bringing this up is because as much as I hate what she and her minions are doing, I’m not going to respond to them, I’m not going to re-blog their asinine posts, and I’m not going to comment on anyone who chooses to re-blog their posts. Honestly, I wish everyone else here would follow my lead and choose to do the same. I get it, I really do. Their behavior is absolutely disgusting I will NEVER deny that. But by choosing to respond to them or argue with them, to re-blog their posts, to comment on the re-blogged posts, or tagging them you’re giving her what she wants. You’re giving her the energy to keep going with this shit. She’s feeding off of ALL OF IT and loving EVERY minute of it. She doesn’t give a shit what we think about her as long as we keep giving her what she needs. As long as we keep doing what we’re doing, which is responding to this shit, she’s not going to stop.  

I have never begged for anything in my life, but I am seriously BEGGING everyone to please stop responding to her (and her minions because I’m fairly certain that they’re narcissists as well).

Take away their energy source…meaning us….and they will wither away and die in their sad and lonely existence.

Pussy Tea (make your kitty taste great) 😛

1. You will need: a bag of frozen or fresh cranberries, 2 cinnamon sticks, loose tea leafs (I use a cinnamon blend from David’s tea or plain black tea) and liquid cranberry pills (this is optional but you should have these already if you want a tasty 🐱)
2. Add one cup of the cranberries to a pot of 4 cups of boiling water.
3. Pop in the cinnamon sticks and add a table spoon of the loose tea.
4. Cut open 1-5 cranberry pills and add liquid to the water (optional but works faster)
5. Let boil for 5-10 mins.
6. Remove from heat and strain the liquid into a cup.
7. Drink up! I swear by this and it’s soo tasty, sweet and doesn’t add any extra calories to your diet! This will make your kitty deadly sweet so I recommend drinking this at maximum 3 times a week !!!

If you’re gonna lose sleep over something, lose sleep over the fun times you have with friends staying up all night. Lose sleep over your career that you put a lot of time into in order to make a lasting impression on the world. Lose sleep over the painting you’ve created to help others see the world the way you do. But don’t lose sleep over someone who won’t text back. Don’t lose sleep over a love that won’t lose sleep over you.

A redraw of something I drew back in 2015 I still found amusing and as if some of y’all can predict shit, you kept asking for Axel in heels. So here you are, you thirsty heathens

A Study in Hypocrisy #1

Or why the Avengers’ relationship to Tony was unhealthy at best, Steve isn’t fit to be a leader, and why I’m Team Iron Man to the end.


WHY STEVE ISN’T FIT TO BE A LEADER

While the Civil War dispute between Tony and Steve might have started because of the Accords, it very quickly turned personal for Steve. He put each and every one of his “teammates” in danger for the sake of one man (more about that later), and even though I love Bucky and everything (I really do!), Steve was extremely dumb about the entire situation. In fact, I don’t think he could have gone about it in the worst way. 

He could have gone to “rescue” Bucky in disguise—God knows that, with his serum and brute force, he certainly could have done exactly what he ended up doing— but he went instead with the American flag all over himself. He didn’t stop to consider the implications, the possible consequences or bulldozing into a foreign country and engaging in a car chase in the middle of a populated city. He didn’t even stop to consider that there was no guarantee at all that Bucky was innocent. 

He could have, you know, talked to Tony. Tony, who has the political experience and the material means and influence to get Bucky the best help there is. Tony, who’s been playing this game for so long, who knows how to get what he wants, who to go to, how to formulate things. Tony, who would have been his most precious ally. 

And he was. Before he found out about his betrayal. Tony negotiated so hard to make sure no one would get hurt. After the Berlin disaster, he managed to get the UN (that’s 117 countries!) to agree to make the past 24 hours legal and to get Bucky to a facility where he would get the best help for his triggers, help that of course Tony himself would be paying for, because let’s be real, the Avengers are funded by Tony at this point, which is yet another thing that doesn’t sit well with me, but I’ll come back to it. 

Back to why Steve isn’t fit to be a leader: the essence of a leader is that they are supposed to do just that. Lead. But to do that, they need to be fair and treat their men equally. They need to be able to put aside their personal feelings and look at situations objectively. Because their duty is to protect their men and have their back, just like they will have his. 

A leader leads, sure. But they must know when to listen, too, and defer to somebody with greater expertise than themselves. In that case, Tony obviously knows better than he does, if only because he read the damn papers. That’s also something that doesn’t sit well with me regarding the rest of Team Cap. Not one of them paused to read the Accords. Hell, Scott had no clue what the hell was going on. He heard “jump,” and he did.

Yet, here comes Steve, putting the lives of not two, not three, but five (six, if you count Sharon) people at risk, all for one man. He drags in Clint and Scott with no regards to their families and personal situations, and all the while keeps information to himself. Do you think Sam knows that he could have avoided prison and exile? Do you think any of them know about Tony’s deal? Do you think Scott actually knew what was going on? Hell no! Because Steve is calculating enough that he won’t lose manpower to such a pesky thing as compromise. 

How about Steve’s constant habit of putting the blame on Tony’s shoulders? “You did that when you signed”? What the fuck is wrong with you? You’re the one who keeps refusing to compromise! 

Steve never treated Tony as an equal. In fact, none of them did. (Again, more on that later.) But the thing is that when it came to a life-altering secret that affected both his teammate and “friend,” and his childhood friend, Steve decided that it was his right to keep that information from both parties, which. 

NO. Being “friends”—and I use the term loosely—with Howard doesn’t give Steve the right to such a decision. This is a traumatic event for Tony, something that affects personally and directly. He had a right to know. And as it has been demonstrated in previous movies that his capacity for forgiveness is immense, he would have had the time to process the information and the Siberia disaster never would have happened. 

Furthermore and finally, Steve Rogers was never actually a captain. The title was just for show, a tool for propaganda when he was sent on a tour to sell war bills. All of his training comes from that short bootcamp for potential serum candidates, nothing more. He’s not actually part of the army, or a ranked officer. The only reason they let him keep the title was because he’d been lucky enough to bring back the 107th when he disobeyed orders, and then proved useful enough to both war efforts and morale. 

Steve Rogers is not a leader. A leader treats everyone equally and gives respect before expecting it. A leader does not keep secrets from his men to serve his own agenda. A leader does not leave a man behind in a freezing, deserted landscape with no way of calling for help. 

If anything, Tony’s the leader of the Avengers. Why? Ask yourselves the following questions: 

  • Who feeds the Avengers? 
  • Who houses the Avengers? 
  • Who clothes the Avengers?
  • Who arms the Avengers? 
  • Who handles their PR? 
  • Who pays for the destruction they leave behind?
  • On the battlefield, who has a global view of everything that’s going on? 
  • Who is so smart that they can predict and analyze battle scenarios, and adapt to the unexpected in a flash? 
  • Who’s considerate enough to leave their former teammate to his retirement because he’s just that, retired with his family?
  • Who cares about everyone equally and would give everything to protect them all? Who goes above and beyond to provide them with everything they need? 
  • Who has the political experience required to handle their supervisors and foreign policy?

That’s right. Tony Stark. 

Not Steve Rogers.

one of my favorite obi-wan things is in the first clone wars series when anakin asks him about why he’s so good with languages and things like that and obi-wan’s response was just “when you travel the galaxy with qui-gon jinn, you learn many things” so honestly knowing both him and qui-gon i’m assuming what that actually meant is “qui-gon dragged us into so much trouble that i had to loosely grasp at least 27973 different languages to convince people not to immediately kill us”
