I JUST WITNESSED THE MOST ADORABLE AND SKILLED 19 YEAR OLD FIGURE SKATER MAKE OLYMPIC HISTORY AND IT WAS AMAZING. NO ONE HAS EVER BROKEN 100 AND THIS GUY WALKS INTO HIS FIRST OLYMPICS AND GETS 101.45. BLESS YOU MY LITTLE ICE PRINCE
As we get closer and closer to VidCon, both my excitement and my anxieties are climbing. I am so looking forward to all the fun that is sure to be had. But I’m a somewhat shy person with a tendency to become overwhelmed in large crowds and unfamiliar situations. While there are elements to VidCon that make me apprehensive, I’m choosing to not let my anxiety hold me back and keep me from doing things I really want to do.
I want to make the most of my experience but I don’t know what to expect. I have so many questions!
How early do you need to arrive to events/panels?
What about meet-ups/signings? How do they work? Is it a photo and your gone? Or do you get a minute?
How early are daily agendas available for planning purposes?
What if I cry? Because I’m pretty sure I’m too old to cry?
What is the meaning of life?
What’s your favorite color?
Which tastes Greater? a) ½ a pizza, or b) half of an apple pie?
Okay. That last one might be a quote from the book Math Curse by Lane Smith and Jon Scieszka…but I still want to know.
It’s not just his beautiful adorable accent, either, or his wondrous face, or how he persisted until Kurt accepted a compliment, or how he seems completely at ease with being goofy, and not taking himself too seriously, which is a quality I think would be great for a boyfriend of Kurt’s.
I think the moment I liked best from Adam was when he said that Kurt would be a great Brick, from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Brick’s the male lead. Brick’s very masculine, as one could deduce from his name. Brick’s not the comic relief, or the flamboyant coded-gay man, or any of the other parts that the world seems to tell Kurt are the only ones he can ‘pull off’.
I could ramble on forever, so to conclude: I love that Adam saw Kurt for Kurt, and not as the stereotype every other character seems to ascribe to him.
There are so many things showing up on my dash about the new HP-related books and every other comment has someone saying “IT’S NOT THREE NEW HP BOOKS, YOU GUYS, IT’S THREE NEW BOOKS THAT ARE IN THE HARRY POTTER CANON.”
Yes, thank you, person-who-wants-to-ruin-my-joy. I do know how to read. That doesn’t mean I’m any LESS excited about this.
Bloomsbury, the publisher of the “Harry Potter” series by author JK Rowling, also said it was counting on a new Rowling three-book box set tied into the Potter series, and a non-fiction account of spies in World War II to support sales in the coming year. [x]
I get that the three-book box set probably WON’T be about Harry and his friends. It will probably be a storybook like The Tales of Beetle the Bard, or a more informational textbook, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or whatever. Either way, have you ever READ The Tales? Because it’s interesting as hell. Have you read Fantastic Beasts? Because it’s hilarious. It’s annotated with Harry, Hermione, and Ron’s notes and it’s adorable. I don’t care if the three books are directly about Harry’s life or or just part of the HP Canon. I’m excited either way and please stop bursting everyone’s happiness.
okay I’m going to try to keep this from getting really sappy, but for those of you who haven’t heard yet, this was the follower count when I went to bed last night:
and this was the follower count when I woke up this morning:
and, honestly? I never thought we’d make it this far. like Doc said in his post, this started as a fun little side project thing in a google doc shared between the two of us. we started this in october. it hasn’t even been an entire year yet and somehow it’s gotten bigger than I ever thought it would be.
basically I just want to thank you all - everyone whose ever submitted, liked, reblogged, made fanart, or send us an encouraging message - for being so nice and welcoming to this blog! we’ve received a lot of love over the months we’ve been up and if I had a better way to send some back to you guys you’d better believe I would. I know this milestone doesn’t mean as much to you guys as it does to me. I kind of imagine that for you all seeing this post it’s like “oh, yeah, it’s the quote blog girl,” but for me it’s like “I’m the quote blog girl!” and that’s really exciting!
so seriously, thank you all so, so much! I can’t wait to see where we go from here!
