if i get old old fashioned

anonymous asked:

Wen Danielle entered the picture and fans started to say - maybe the timing is a little odd- Briana did not even have the baby yet - they were told not to be so old fashioned and this was real life and life is messy sometimes. One year later and Danielle has left and has been replaced with El in a mere second and it maybe even overlapped which is worse. And again fans are being told - don't be so old fashioned, this is real life and it's messy sometimes. Haven't you forgotten about someone?

I know real life is messy and so will you once you get off the internet and start dating. I’ve been in a relationship that overlapped. I didn’t lose friends or family over it, the sky did not fall in, I wasn’t struck by a thunderbolt. Get away from me with your Old Testament ideology.

Apothecary Lesson #2: Drying your herbs

     Guess who’s back, back again? Davide’s back, tell a friend. Either way, hello everyone, and today, we’re getting a little old-fashioned. Like real old-fashioned. Like, pioneer witch old, y’know? That’s right kids, we’re drying our own herbs, and I’ve got three methods for each herb-drier out there: The “I’m, like, totes a wiccan,” The “Well, this should work faster,” and then the “This better goddamn work.”


Method One: Oldest

What You’ll Need:

  • Herbs, tied with twine
  • Twine
  • Thumbtack

Instructions:

  1. You’re going to tie a piece of twine to the thumbtack, and attach the other end of the twine to the herb bundle. 
  2. Push the thumbtack either into the wall or the ceiling to hang them. 
  3. Let dry for 6-12 months (Keep in dry, warm room, and if you’re harvesting seeds, you might want to wrap your herbs in cheesecloth first) 

Method Two: Nature n’ Shit

What You’ll Need:

  • Herbs to dry
  • Table to place herbs on
  • Glass to put over herbs (and something to support the glass so it doesn’t touch the herbs) 

Instructions:

  1. Place herbs onto the table, and spread out so as to not have the herbs touch each other. 
  2. Put table into the sun, and place the glass panel over the table
  3. Let dry in direct sunlight for 12 hours (until brittle) 

Method Three: Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That

Originally posted by lussia-neve

What You’ll Need:

  • A Microwave
  • Paper Towels
  • Herbs to dry

Instructions:

  1. Place your herbs in a thin layer on one paper towel, and lay another paper towel on top of that. 
  2. Place into your microwave, and cook on high for one minute. Let rest for thirty seconds. Then microwave again for thirty seconds–you will repeat a series of rest for thirty seconds then cooking for thirty seconds
  3. The herbs should be dried after approximately 10-15 minutes

Well… that was fun, right? Either way, thank you for reading through this, and I hope you guys stay tuned for the next installment of “Apothecary Lessons.” Talk to y’all later :)

Okay, can we TALK ABOUT MAGNUS’S DESK FOR A SECOND???

Like yeah, the Malec is cool but I want to scream about this desk until I die. At first glance, it looks very mid-century. Old books, fancy wooden writing desk. Then you look closer and you realize how perfectly Magnus it is. Like on top of this old desk, with antique books is a glaring (almost surprisingly) modern metal lamp. 

Then, the chair. You expect an old fashioned, high-backed chair to go with the already antique feel of the room/desk. What you get? A bright yellow, almost 70′s style chair. And it’s just so perfect?? Because this is who Magnus is, ya feel. He’s this incredible mixture of things he’s taken to and enjoyed over centuries, he’s not static at all. But he also doesn’t leave behind things he cares about, he likes that desk, he likes those books but he ALSO likes that lamp and chair. Like, UGH, even his little pen which is sticking out of an antique pen holder in the center of the desk contrasts the cup of pens he has to the right of that. Like… Jesus, I love him so much. 

I’m so down for any kind of musical

you know those ppl who are soooooo averse to cheesy old fashioned big production musicals?? I don’t get it!! I get so caught up in shows with sweeping harmonies and elaborate choreography and overly romantic relationships

but I also love newer, different, smaller musicals don’t get me wrong!! they’re great too!!

give me unnecessary soliloquys and vocal runs I am DOWN, tired of the snootiness against typical showtuney shows

SU Theory - Greg’s Age

A little something I noticed in Adventures In Light Distortion. Pearl mentioned that in 70 years Greg would be 110 years old. I did the maths (well, google did) and Greg is only supposed to be 40???

Okay so maybe people are thinking “yeah, he might look older than that but hey he could be 40 tbh”. Well, it is possible, but if it is, the timeline gets weirder.

I googled 70 years ago from today. 1977. If Greg really did meet Rose in the 80s, judging by the fashion, he would be at most 12 years old. Given he revealed he was 22 when he met them, either Pearl gave misinformation and he was born in 1967, making it possible for him to be 22 in the 1980s and therefore 50 years old, or they actually did meet in the 90s (hence why Greg made that comment about him believing disco was coming back). If they really did meet in the 90s, and we subtract 14 from 40, that makes Greg only 26 years old when Steven was born. If we take Greg’s word, that means they had Steven after only four years of knowing each other.

That’s what confuses me. It seems like a very short amount of time for someone who literally doesn’t age to suddenly decide she wants to have a child, give up her physical form, research how to shapeshift all the necessary anatomy etc, I mean considering pregnancy is 9 months long they only would have known each other 3 years and three months when they conceived?? That seems extremely weird to me since it would have had to have been planned. I understand that she believes human lives are short but surely that’s still very extreme?

So we can believe two things: either Pearl was incorrect and miscalculated, meaning Greg is 50 years old, knew Rose 14 years and had Steven at age 36 rather than 26 (which seems more plausible to me), or they really did conceive a child after only knowing each other for approximately 3 years and 3 months of knowing one another (and if we round up the montage of Greg’s song in Greg the Babysitter to be over the course of at least a year considering how old Sour Cream is at that point, Rose only became interested in human babies 2 years prior to having Steven). Well, if the latter is the case, it would explain why the gems were so shaken up by their loss. (oops that’s not okay.)

I mean, maybe I’m looking too much into this, but it’s food for thought. Think I should start up one of those wild theory youtube accounts or something??

Letter; some say old fashioned, other say snail mail, I just think they’re glorious really. It more personal than a text. It’s more meaningful than a call. Yet it’s not quite as great as seeing that person in real life. 

What’s a Soulmate?

So I really wanted to do a Barry Allen/Reader daughter fic, although this is kinda terrible.

If you want more kid fics just tell me!


“Daddy. What’s a soulmate?” Barry looked up from his paper that he was reading -even in this modern world, he couldn’t get out the old fashioned habit- and came face to face with his five-year-old daughter.

“A soulmate?” The speedster picked up his young child that is the spitting image of him, from the hair to skin tone, and seated her on his lap, as she wore a cheeky smile.

“Yeah. Mummy was saying that you and she are soulmates.” Barry grinned at the thought of you. Y/D/N was exactly like you while looking like him. Her smile and laugh mirrored your’s and the chocolate haired superhero heart swelled every time he saw the two of you together.

“Well, a soulmate is like a best friend, but more.” Y/D/N looked up, locking her Y/E/C eyes with Barry’s and her confused little face.

“Like how you and Uncle Cisco are best friends?” Barry laughed slightly and shook his head, causing his daughter to become further confused.

“No sweetie, not like that. A soulmate is the one person in the world who knows you better than anyone else.”

“Like how Aunt Iris knows you like Chocolate Ice-Cream?” Y/D/N understood this concept but was failing to grasp what made her Mother her Dad’s soulmate if other people knew him just as well.

Barry laughed again, not noticing you walking out of the living room’s adjoining study and leaning against the room’s doorway.

“A soulmate is someone who makes you a better person. Wait, no, that’s wrong. They don’t make you a better person, you do that yourself. Because they inspire you.” Y/D/N’s face turned dreamy as she took in her Father’s words.

“The one person who knew you and accepted you, believed in you before anyone else did, or if no-one else would.” Your words caused both your daughter and husband to turn to you, a smile on both their faces.

“And no matter what happens, you’ll always love them. Nothing can ever change that. “ Barry finished as you came to sit next to him on the sofa, pulling Y/D/N into a hug.

“Do I have a soulmate?” Your daughter asked, hope in her eyes.

“Of course.” You smiled, exchanging a look with Barry. “You have us.”

Y/D/N made a face. “But I’m not gonna marry you guys.”

You and Barry couldn’t help but laugh. “You won’t be marrying anyone for a long time.”

Just remembered this moment from last game, so I drew it real quick. 

Rhos and Zira went all out with shopping for Old West stuff, while Galerna was on the fence about getting a fan…after this, she bought one.

My 93 year old great-grandmother likes my tattoo sleeve. Literally nobody is allowed to use the “I’m old fashioned” excuse to put me down. Ninety freaking three years old. It barely gets more “old fashioned” than that. If you don’t like tattoos then good for you don’t get one but don’t think that for one second that you get to talk down to me for having them because you are “old fashioned”. Tattoos have been around for hundreds of years so don’t use that bullshit excuse to pretend that you’re a better person because you don’t have tattoos and I do.

zodiac signs as Karkat insults

E) they have each other’s phoneeeee numberssss as we know BUT THEY TEXTINNNNNNNN
F) and personally my favourite: the dick pic
Basically that was the cutest, childish way to irritate Mgs :D he tian gave him a heart attack i swear .. I’m sure he tian did it as a joke (or a punishment for the bad language) and not as something erotic to turn the other on HE IS JUST SO DIRECT he doesn’t care if his crush will see his dick its all fun and games for him
Also its funny how mgs takes it as a joke too i mean his reaction was like EWWWW GROSSSS but he wasnt actually upset or sad…
of course it will get serious if in the next chapter he actually looks at the pic and blush and realize he kinda likes just a little bit how he tian is always the one to provoke and push and its kinda sexy and OH BOY HERE WE GO

Thoughts on current(ish) dramas

Blow Breeze (Korea): Checked it out because the premise sounded intriguing, dumped it two episodes in. Despite the premise, it seems like a typical weekend family drama, where I have problems keeping who is who straight. I also had zero interest or investment in these people. Combine with the fact that I am not a fangirl for anyone in the show, and you get DROPPED.

Cinderella and Four Knights (Korea): I wanted to like it, I did. The heroine was spunky and I am a big fan of Jung Il Woo (less a fan of his ability to pick up projects. The only drama of his I unabashedly loved was his debut Return of Iljimae.) But it’s too slapsticky and cheaply filmed, not to mentioned old-fashioned. It feels like it could have come out a decade ago and, while I love decade-old dramas, I only like them when they were made back then! So DROPPED.

Fantastic (Korea): Fan of the leads (Park Si Yeon needs more recognition. Joo Sang Wook stole my heart forever in Giant.) But the fact that the vibe didn’t click with me (a little too goofy) and the fact that I tend to avoid terminal illness dramas like the plague (pun intended) resulted in this one being DROPPED.

Ice Fantasy (China): High fantasy is where it’s at, baby! I am obsessively in love with this one, almost as much as I would have been if it came out when I was 14 (the reams of bad fanfic I would have written!) Sure, it has plot holes and is a bit too much in love with CGI, but it has a cool plot, pretty visuals, a ton of awesome ladies, a great sibling relationship, an OTP to die for, and a hero that makes my biggest Legolas dreams come true. Definitely a KEEPER. 

Love 020 (China): cute and I like the leads, but ultimately I have yet to find a contemporary cdrama to hook me. I am watching this, but in a desultory fashion. Ultimately, I prefer angst to fluff so this continues a MAYBE.

Moon Covered by Clouds (Korea): started out as fluffiest fluff and I thought I’d drop it, but it suddenly ratcheted in intensity - keeping the comic beats while discovering heart and conflict and making me get so very obsessed and becoming a KEEPER.

Moon Lovers (Korea): after episode 1, it was, at most a maybe. Now, after ep 3, it’s an obsession. Ostensibly remake of the Chinese smash hit Bu Bu Jing Xin, it’s pretty clearly its own thing that has veered off deliciously. I am there for the pretty and the future romance…oh, hell, who am I kidding? I am in it for gorgeous Lee Jun Ki, long hair blowing in the wind, bloodily angsting and longing for love. Pretty much a Yuu Watase manga come to life (TAMAHOOOOOOME!!! :P) So yes,a  KEEPER.

Novoland: Castle in the Sky (China): OK, I know it technically already ended, but I am still catching up. Speaking of manga come to life - this has it all, a special heroine, a tortured smirky hottie who is devoted to her, lots of tasty angst, wings! This is pretty much perfect and a KEEPER.

Our Gab Soon (Korea): OK, I admit I am sort of hate watching it because I don’t want Gab Soon to stick with her loser boyfriend and I am watching a 50 ep weekend drama (!!!!) in hopes of an event that will clearly won’t happen. BUT! I adore Gab Soon (and her actress, Kim So Eun, I will pretty watch in anything). Her loser boyfriend is hot, despite the loseriness, I like observing dysfunctional relationships, and I hope he will grow up and it will be painful. And rage at him is quite entertaining. So surprising even myself, this one is a KEEPER.

Uncontrollably Fond (Korea): despite the terminal illness, I was on board (cautiously.) But then the writer separated the couple for the bulk of the drama and heaped misery upon misery on them for no discernible reason. Only a masochist would have stayed the course of contstant misery, zero OTP times and a guaranteed tragic ending, and I don’t qualify. Sorry,  Kim Woo Bin, I adore you, but your drama finally got DROPPED.

W Two Worlds (Korea): My drug, my tasty drug! Has Lee Jung Suk ever made a drama I didn’t love (nope - loved, I Hear Your Voice, School 2013, Doctor Stranger, and Pinocchio). This one hurts my brain and makes me ship and claw at my chair. ILY show and you are  a KEEPER.

After my old iPod being turned off for months, I tried turning it back on to find an old photo. To my surprise, this is what I saw. It hasn’t been on for months and no one had tried to get into it. How is this even possible? How long is that? Can someone from the science or technology side of tumblr please help?
