Design trends that work for your real life kitchen

Gorgeous photos of designer kitchens can be eye candy, but sometimes they can feel too impractical or out-of-reach for us mere mortals (you know, humans with real lives and real budgets to juggle), which is why our new book, Lovable Livable Home, is filled with real spaces that are as easy to live in as they are to look at — those things don’t have to be mutually exclusive!

To help you sort through the abyss of good ideas, here are five kitchen design trends that you should not write off, because they can actually make your own kitchen prettier and more functional — and could even save you some money along the way.

A story that I’m not writing but that I’ve been thinking about is a variant on the day repeating itself/time loop thing.

The ones I’ve seen have all been set during the quest, and for fairly obvious reasons that can be rather traumatic for whoever the looper is.

But how about a pre-quest one?
With Bilbo as the looper.

He’d be in his forties, and he’d have no clue what’s going on when his days start repeating themselves. Well, one day in particular that is.

He tries different things to make it stop, contemplates if he’s losing his marbles, and eventually throws his hands up and decides to have some fun because otherwise he’s def going to lose what marbles he has left.

Maybe he learns Sindarin, or how to juggle, or 33 new recipes for apple pie.

Anyway, this course of action (finding distractions) eventually takes him outside Hobbiton, where his path crosses with a certain Dwarf who is on his way back to Ered Luin. (I figure Bilbo was aimlessly following the road seeing how far he could get before the loop resets, or something like that)

Maybe he’s seen the Dwarf at a distance a few times before actually taking to him. An curiosity finally makes him seek this stranger out.

Bilbo, who at this point is used to living life without consequences likes the look of this Dwarf and rather brazenly seduces him, a little surprised that it actually works, but pleased.

Expecting to wake up back in his own bed Bilbo is *very* surprised to wake up the next morning (!) curled against the Dwarf’s side, the both of them lying on a couple of bedrolls and furs beneath an (oak)tree.

Thorin, his name was, or so Bilbo thinks.
It’s possible that he wasn’t paying that much attention since he didn’t think he would really have to remember it the next morning. But he’s certainly paying attention now.

Thorin actually wakes up to find that he has Bilbo’s full attention, the Hobbit all but staring at him.

“Not what you expected, Master Hobbit?” Thorin asks gruffly, wondering what possessed him to curl a hand in those soft honey-coloured curls and bend down to taste smiling pink plush lips and fine, he knows exactly what possessed him but it was clearly not-

“Not exactly,” Bilbo says slowly, and then a brilliant smile splits his face. “But I have to say I’m rather pleased. How about some breakfast? It’s about an hour’s walk to my home, say you’ll join me.”

And Thorin does, and that’s the start of something new. Something better.

My reasoning is that if you want to change the course of a river so it misses a certain bit of land you’d do well to make a diversion far upstream, and not a metre away from where you *don’t* want it to go.

Thorin and Bilbo getting to know each other before the quest would change everything. And I’m convinced it’s for the better.

{*cries a river of blood and tears*}

imagine harried college student kyungsoo who’s drowning under assignments and paper and homework because of course, of course he totally thought he could take Music Composition III alongside his Medieval and Renaissance Literature class and juggle working full time while tutoring Freshmen English majors and being in choir and participating in this year’s recital. And he’s tired and stressed and worried and everything is kind of starting to pile up because all his assignments and papers are due all at the same time and ksoo can’t deal with it anymore, he can’t and he goes to this coffeeshop to get some work done but he just winds up opening his books and slumping onto them because he’s tired (so, so unbelievably, unbearably tired). 

and suddenly there’s a quiet ‘click’, a dull thud next to his head and he slowly turns his head and he finds himself staring at the smooth, white surface of a mug of steaming coffee in confusion because he hasn’t even mustered the energy to order a drink yet so what is this? and he looks up and startles back because it’s byun baekhyun…?? byun baekhyun from last semester’s voice class who had decided on the first day that he didn’t like kyungsoo and kept teasing him about every minor detail of his being (his clothes, his hair, his glasses, his coffee), who laughed at him and made fun of him and who kyungsoo avoided at all costs whenever he could; who, in spite of every reason for kyungsoo to hate him, had a smile that would light up the room and a voice that still made kyungsoo swallow around a dry throat every time he listened to that one recording he’d furtively made of baekhyun when he performed at the end of the year (a slow, sweet ballad about love and taking chances and asking for courage and hope). byun baekhyun who’s fiddling adorably with the ends of the sleeves his overly large sweater, who’s biting at his lips in an obvious sign of nervousness. 

and kyungsoo’s just so tired, so of course he just blinks mutely up at baekhyun, stares at him with nothing but static in his brain and it feels like an agonizingly long time passes before baekhyun sighs deeply and drops into the seat across from his table with a kind of incredulous huff of laughter.

“look, it’s just coffee,” baekhyun begins, blinking slowly behind his glasses. they’re harry potter glasses - round, thin wire frames glinting a muted gold and it’s utterly unfair how cute he looks right now. “i know you hate my guts, and i know you don’t like your coffee sweet or with milk, but i didn’t add any sugar so its just a normal double-shot latte and you look like you need it more than i do. especially given how much you’ve got going on right now.”

kyungsoo gapes at him, mind sluggishly attempting to sort through baekhyun’s rapid-fire speech because he’s stressed and tired and worried and tired and confused and tired and somehow his brain decides the most pressing matter is, “how do you know how i like my coffee?”

“you drank it the same every single day for that 8am class we had together. for the whole of last semester - black, no milk, no sugar, and hot enough for there to still be steam wafting from the top every time you unscrewed the cap of your thermos, even at the end of class.” baekhyun shrugs, picking at his nails nonchalantly, but kyungsoo still registers the way his cheeks have started to flush a soft pink. 

“oh.” kyungsoo stares some more. blinks slowly. reaches for the coffee and takes a tentative sip. the milk is a little cloying, a little thick, a little heavy, but the familiar, bitter aftertaste of caffeine is wonderful and already he can feel the headache receding - his body responding to the taste before it can begin processing the caffeine itself. “uh, thanks, i guess.”

“you’re welcome.” baekhyun’s smile is small, tentative, hesitant (kind of beautiful). “and, uh, sorry for bothering you, i guess. you just… looked like you had a lot on your plate.” he eyes the tall stack of unopened books by kyungsoo’s side meaningfully and kyungsoo can’t help the wry grin that stretches his lips. 

“yeah, i may have taken on more than i should’ve this semester.” 

“well, yeah, mr i’m gonna accomplish a double major in english and music and finish a semester early anyway because i’m just that smart,” baehyun’s words are familiar, but there’s something softer about his tone this time, about his eyes and smile that’s not so much derisive as it is wry, like he’s trying to include kyungsoo in on joke - like he’s looking for a moment of shared camaraderie.

“hey,” kyungsoo resorts lips pursed to blow gently over the warm surface of his coffee. he’s not sure if he’s imagining the split second when baekhyun’s gaze seems to drop a few inches and his eyelids seem to grow heavy. “you’re one to talk, mr i’m practically being paid to attend here because of one audition tape.”

baekhyun looks surprised, caught off guard, as if he didn’t expect kyungsoo to know about that detail (it hadn’t been a secret, per se, but it hadn’t been advertised either. kyungsoo had mostly known because he’d worked in the music department office the semester before baekhyun transferred in - had seen the tape and heard his voice and knew, instantly, that this boy was going to go on and do great things.)

“why, do kyungsoo,” baekhyun says with unfiltered delight. “i didn’t know you paid any attention to lil’ ol’ me.”

kyungsoo tries to frown, tries to keep from smiling. fails miserably because he can feel the way the edges of his lips are tipped upwards. “you make it kind of hard not to notice you. you’re so loud. all the time.”

“well if you wanted my attention,” baekhyun retorts, tipping forward in his seat, leaning on his forearms against the edge of the table head cocked sideways in consideration, “all you had to do was ask.”

“okay. want to study together?” 

kyungsoo doesn’t know where it comes from, doesn’t know why he’s suddenly being so bold. the words trip over his lips, stumble over the edge of his teeth, slide over his tongue before he can really process them. maybe its the soft way that baekhyun is staring at him. maybe its the way he’s leaning forward - shoulders tipped forward, palms facing upwards and exposed (open, welcoming). maybe its the way the sunlight filtering through the blinds lights up his hair in a shining halo. maybe its the beginnings of a smile that’s starting to curl the edges of his lips; a smile that comes tinged with a hint of wonder and hope. 



and then baekhyun beams at him, turns the full force of his grin onto kyungsoo and for a moment he feels awash at sea. 

“okay. yeah, i’d like that. i’d like that a lot.”

Friday Five

The Paytons over-scheduled themselves this month, but we’ve been managing with a sense of humor. The worst of it seems to be over (although tomorrow will require some juggling), but it’s times like this that always make me think, HOW DO PEOPLE WITH MORE THAN ONE KID DO IT? You people are my heroes.

Finn will be 16 next week. Sniffle. I liked being 16. I hope he does too.

We got new DVRs and new voice activated remotes this week. This is what passes for excitement in your 40s. I spent way too much time talking into my remote this week trying to see just how smart that mutherfucker is. Pretty smart.  Smarter than spell check, which just told me mutherfucker isn’t a word, and that I should change it to rutherfordium, a chemical element and, coincidentally, my new favorite cuss word.

After I posted that I had read Jon Cryer’s book, my BFF Kenny told me that Pretty in Pink is playing in theaters on Valentine’s Day in honor of its 30th anniversary. Ah yes, yet another installment of Things That I Loved That Turned 30. You’re keeping track, right? Speaking of which, did you know Planet Hollywood lost Duckie’s shoes? Rutherfordium! That place sucks for all new reasons now.

I’m off to listen to some Otis Redding. 


The latest episode of Eddsworld, Saloonatics hit today! I was the second person in line to animate this episode, but due to time (I was in the process of moving between freelance and full time work) I had to give the episode up. The animation ended up in the hand of Prikle and Studio Cacti who did a fantastic job on the video, and a way better job than I would have done trying to juggle this episode with the big workload I had at the time. 

Here’s the progress I made up to that point, and a pretty messy animatic that Cacti used as a starting point!



Patrick Long spent his final semester of college eating for two, cheerfully juggling bottles (and doing other goofy Pleasure Sim things), and practicing being a Mama with Aldwin’s baby. And then eventually:

Hey, at least he managed to graduate! (His Knowledge secondary totally saved him.) And then he moved into an apartment downtown and got a job in his LTW career:

Apparently, that hard-won college degree did him absolutely no good whatsoever. Just like real life!

He’ll have his sprog a couple hours after I next open his household…after which he’ll be prevailing on his neighbors for babysitting services…unless he actually decides to roll up a want to marry his llama boyfriend….Time will tell.

anonymous asked:

Hey, Erica! I love your cosplay! But since you're so busy, how do you manage your time effectively so that you can keep up with all your commitments and pursue what you're passionate about? Do you ever procrastinate?

Oh god yes I procrastinate a ton. Its one of my worst habits. Time management is something I know how to do effectively, but I don’t always put my skills to work to the best of my ability. I don’t sleep very much so I’m often tired, which leaves me unmotivated to do work that I don’t really want to do! Overall though, I typically get everything done in the long run, even if it means handing some things in late for school or getting extensions on assignments! 

It’s really exhausting to do everything that I do and try to juggle all of my commitments at once, but to be honest I wouldn’t have it any other way. Though I may struggle now, I’m learning lessons that will be valuable to me later in life! Having a lot of passions isn’t a walk in the park, but its worth sticking to them if you really love them! 

boob jugglers

8th grade, sitting in english class: teacher is enthusiastically talking about plans for the semester. best-friend starts cupping her chest and whisper/asks whether one of my boobs feels heavier than the other. finding this out was of the utmost importance, so i begin weighing mine too. two friends beside me also follow suit, and by the time my teacher turns around, the left side of the room is juggling their chest. confused, he lifts his hands to his chest (as if to question whether he himself has a heavier boob.) he then realizes what he’s doing and turns a deep shade of red and says,
“I’m going to pretend like that didn’t just happen.”

mad-scientist-socool asked:

Mr. Gaiman, how can I get past the self-loathing I feel whenever I read something that I have written?

Write more. And remember that everyone who writes anything good wrote a lot of bad stuff first. You are learning, be kind to yourself, just as you would be kind to anyone learning to do something hard, like juggling or ballroom dancing or surgery. Learn from your mistakes, and get better, and one day you’ll write something you won’t loathe.

(Also, it’s fine to dislike something you’ve written. But don’t dislike yourself for having made it.)

The Circus Students

There once were some students of circus

Whose training was structured with purpose

They swung and they spun

Till they got the job done

Less they do their centre disservice.

The most I’ve ever had, tbh. I cannot thank everyone enough! I feel bad, really. I couldn’t keep up & make a new banner thing for every milestone I’ve hit. It’s happened so quickly, I’ve only been here for such a short amount of time & there’s already so many of you. In-fucking-credible. I can’t handle it. But let’s get this done before I start pouring my heart out & sobbing a puddle for everyone under the spotlight… Tragic. Disgusting. Let’s bring out the heart-to-heart shit.

@punkdraco and I have already had part of this conversation but I just wanted to put this out here & add some thoughts I’ve been having out here - 

the star wars novelizations are great and all but I’m sort of weirded out by the kind of information they insert about the characters into the text, but not in the films. Some of it, okay, it adds depths to characters - but I genuinely have questions about whether a film’s (and given that the film canon existed first) characters should be interpreted differently based off information given in the novelization of the film. Like, I’m currently reading the OT novelization & Han Solo the womanizer is very much played straight in the novelization - which like, the way Harrison Ford plays Han Solo in the films is very much a Han whose real self is at odds with the image he wants to project (he’s not a cool guy womanizer, he’s kind of a totally reckless and impulsive screwball who pretty much shouts about how much he likes Leia). Here he has a woman sitting on his lap at the start of the Mos Eisley cantina despite the fact that this doesn’t appear in the films. There’s bits of descriptors that are obviously channelling us towards the Cool Guy Han Solo reading, even though those sections, viewed purely on film, could be read very very differently.

And like, there’s shit in the TFA novelization I know of, for example, which alter how people interpret Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren - Kylo more so than Poe. 

So this is the question - which ‘canon’ is more canon and do filmmakers get to cover up on their inability to show onscreen by putting additional facts into a novelization? Do we have to accept that as canon or continue our conversations based purely on the films? What does it mean for fans who can’t get the goddamn novelizations or who don’t know of their existence? How does death of the author work when you have like, coded descriptors trying to guide your reading of a scene which was previously ambiguously coded on screen?

These are just questions, I don’t have answers. But it’s something that’s been niggling at me for some time.
