life by committee

Drowning in a committee member’s incredibly technical and perplexing suggestions, the grad student has no idea why his head is nodding.

Hibari does put his arms into his gakuran sleeves once in a while

Something I found out while re-reading KHR! from the beginning:

And that he drives a motorcycle.
And that he praised Tsuna for ‘shooting’ Moretti: “Good job. You got the heart in one shot.”

Gods above.

They should have shown that in the anime in my opinion, but target audience concerns won’t allow it, I guess.

#MarryWayfaring2k16 Committee Quarterly Report

Hilarious Middle Aged Male Patient: You know, Dr. Wayfaring, I’ve been trying to find you a guy.

Wayfaring: Really?! You’ve only met me a few times!

Patient: It’s not just me. There’s a group of us. Dr. S is in on it too. For a while I thought about it all the time. I was picking out guys for you left and right. We want to get you paired off so you’ll settle here forever.

Wayfaring:

Patient: I had a list of names in my truck and everything. I talked over the list with Dr. S and a few others one day and we vetoed some people. Well, one guy you had already said no to because he was too old. Or at least that’s what we heard.

Wayfaring (thinking): hmm…. so the pharmacist is in on this too, because she’s the only one who knew about that….So who is on this list?

Patient: Oh we’re not ready to tell you that yet. I’m still vetting guys. They’re hard to find! I know some good guys in their early 20s and mid 40s, but not many in their early 30s.

Wayfaring:

Patient: We gotta be picky. You know, you’re gonna end up marrying someone you date, so we can’t have you going on dates with guys who aren’t marriage material. There were a few names that would have made ok dates but we didn’t see you marrying them. I had already crossed one guy off the list who I thought was weird and he’s in prison now, so I guess I was right on target on him.

Wayfaring:

I don’t even know what to say. And I know the prison guy. I can’t believe he was even on the list. I’m worried about your list now. But y’all have put serious thought into this. Are you really for real or are you just messing with me?

Patient: For real! There’s a list and everything! We’re your matchmaking committee!

My elderly patient’s body is failing them in almost every way, but their family insists on doing everything and keeping them full code...
Trees of Reverie July Read-a-Thon: Day 12

Another Monday, another week. I continued on with Sekret, reading it slower than I usually read and relishing the book. It’s written quite differently than your typical YA book, at least in my opinion, and I feel like in order to grasp everything I want to read it more slowly. 

I also started listening to Life by Committee by Corey Ann Haydu but I had to put it down. You can read my reasons why on Goodreads, but basically, the book was making me uncomfortable (in a bad way) and I just couldn’t continue it. Instead I picked up Starters by Lissa Price and I’m enjoying it a lot more.

Pages Read Today: 216
Total Pages Read: 2910
Books Read: Reality Boy // Divided // The Geography of You and Me // Dorothy Must Die // The Dream Thieves // Since You’ve Been Gone // Ruins // Sekret (in progress) // Starters (in progress)

anonymous asked:

I was invited to join a committee at my college and our first project is to organize a fundraiser for an elementary school. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what we should do or where I could find some fundraiser ideas. Thank you in advance!

Honestly, if you just google “fundraising ideas” you’ll find about a million sites that each have thousands of ideas for you.

I would start on Pinterest, though. I know Pinterest gets cast off as the site for white suburban moms, but it’s a seriously good place for party planning, fundraising, classroom activities, library programming, household stuff, and anything DIY.
