★*゚‘゚・The Mummy (1999)

❝ What are you doing here? ❞
❝ You must go. Save yourself. Only you can resurrect me. ❞
❝ By eating the sacred scarabs, I would be cursed to stay alive forever. And by eating me, they were cursed just the same. ❞
❝ I knew this was gonna be a lousy day. ❞
❝ Personally, I would like to surrender. Why can we not just surrender? ❞
❝ Then let’s run away. Right now. While we can still make it. ❞
❝ Now gimme your revolver, you’ll never use it anyway. ❞
❝ Let’s play dead, huh? Nobody ever does that anymore. ❞
❝ What are ya doing?! Wait up! ❞
❝ I’m gonna get you for this! ❞
❝ I’m sorry, it was an accident. ❞
❝ Have you no respect for the dead? ❞
❝ Where did you get this? ❞
❝ Two questions. Who the hell is Seti the First? And was he rich? ❞
❝ As the Americans would say: it’s all fairy tales and hokum. ❞
❝ I’m sure it was a fake, anyway. ❞
❝ You lied to me! ❞
❝ I lie to everybody, what makes you so special? ❞
❝ And what is he in prison for? ❞
❝ He said… he was just looking for a good time. ❞
❝ What did you find? What did you see? ❞
❝ Get me the hell outta here. ❞
❝ I will give you one hundred pounds to spare his life. ❞
❝ Yeah, I’d like ya to let me go. ❞
❝ Then we will kill her, we will kill her and all those with her. ❞
❝ For all the money we’re paying you, something better god-damned well be under that sand. ❞
❝ Do you really think he’ll show up? ❞
❝ Personally, I think he’s filthy, rude and a complete scoundrel. I don’t like him one bit. ❞
❝ I have come to protect my investment, thank you very much. ❞
❝ I only gamble with my life, never my money. ❞
❝ What makes you so confident, sir? ❞
❝ Sorry, didn’t mean to scare ya. ❞
❝ Still angry that I kissed ya, huh? ❞
❝ The last time I was at that place everybody I was with died.  ❞
❝ By the way,… why did you kiss me? ❞
❝ You always did have more balls than brains. ❞
❝ Can you swim? ❞
❝ Americans. ❞
❝ I can’t believe the price of these fleabags. ❞
❝ All night you snored!  ❞
❝ What in bloody hell is this? ❞
❝ Ah, begging your pardon, but shouldn’t we be going? ❞
❝ You boys owe me five hundred dollars. ❞
❝ Where’d all these camels come from? ❞
❝ That thing gives me the creeps. ❞
❝ What are those mirrors for? ❞
❝ Who cares? I don’t see no treasure. ❞
❝ You’re welcome to my share of the spider webs. ❞
❝ Mummies, my good son, this is where they made the mummies. ❞
❝ Ya scared the bejeezus out of us. ❞
❝ I’ve had worse. ❞
❝ Let’s be nice, children, if we’re going to play together, we must learn to share. ❞
❝And when those dirty Yanks go to sleep – No offence. ❞
❝ We’ll sneak up and steal that book right out from under them. ❞
❝ What do you suppose killed him? ❞
❝ I believe if I can see it and I  can touch it, then it’s real. That’s what I believe. ❞
❝ Why do you like to fight so much? ❞
❝ For them to protect it like this, you just know there’s got to be treasure down there. ❞
❝ …I am a librarian! ❞
❝ I can’t believe I allowed the two of you to get me drunk. ❞
❝ You dream about dead guys? ❞
❝ Stupid superstitious bastard. ❞
❝ Oh my god, he was buried alive. ❞
❝ What are you going to do? Shoot him? ❞
❝ Did you see that!? Grasshoppers! Billions of grasshoppers! ❞
❝ That’s one of the plagues, right? The grasshopper plague! ❞
❝ Oh thank goodness, you’re one of the Americans, aren’t you? ❞
❝ Help me,… please,… help me. ❞
❝ No mortal weapons can kill this creature. He is not of this world. ❞
❝ You left me! You left me in the desert to rot. ❞
❝ Sweet Jesus! That tasted just like,…like… ❞
❝ You saved me from the undead. For this, I shall make you immortal. ❞
❝ There’s only one person I know who can possibly give us some answers. ❞
❝ And you think this justifies killing innocent people!? ❞
❝ Okay, let’s cut to the chase. He’s afraid of cats, what’s that about? ❞
❝ The hell with that! I’m not goin’ nowhere! We’re safe here. ❞
❝ What friend? You’re my only friend. ❞
❝ What are you looking for? Lie, and I’ll slit your throat. ❞
❝ Something about bringing his dead girly-friend back to life. He needs the book… ❞
❝ Ya know, ever since I met you, my luck has been for crap. ❞
❝ The hell with this. I’m goin, downstairs to get me a drink. You want somethin’? ❞
❝ Yeah, get me a glass of bourbon, a shot of bourbon and a bourbon chaser. ❞
❝ Jealous? You kiddin’ me? Did you see that guy’s face? ❞
❝ Is it dangerous? ❞
❝ Save the damsel in distress, kill the bad guy and steal his treasure. ❞
❝ You know, nasty little fellows such as yourself, always get their comeuppance. ❞
❝ From now on, don’t touch anything. Not a damn thing. Keep your hands off the furniture, got it? ❞
❝ He wants your heart and your brain, your liver, your kidneys… ❞
❝ I never killed a priest before. ❞
❝ Kill them! Kill them all! And bring me the Book Of The Living! ❞
❝ This just keeps gettin, better and better. ❞
❝ Death is only the beginning. ❞
❝ Well,… I guess we go home empty handed. ❞

9.  If you hate just plain water and you can’t stand drinking it put lemons and other fruits in it.
10.  Water with lemon cleans your system out nicely and makes you urine more.

25. Sometimes it’s good to just listen to people talk and let them talk for the sake of you not arguing and loosing brain cells.

38. Take walks. If you feel bad and need to breathe, plug in your headphones and walk. They clear your mind.
39. Keep a journal and write in it whenever you feel as if you have nobody to speak to. It’s a good way to get rid of things inside.
40. If you’re confident and you think you are the shit then you keep doing that. Or fake it till you make it.
41. Embrace insults. If somebody calls you a name turn around and flip it. People hate to see you unbothered.
42. Try to use natural/organic and cruelty free skincare/haircare products. Limit nasty chemicals, it’s good for both you and the environment.

Come a Little Bit Closer - Tredd Furia

@sonsoflucis has been filling my head with filthy thoughts of Drautos, and even before I learned Tredd’s name (I did not remember much of Kingsglaive lol) I thought he was cute, he was like the only Glaive whose face I remembered haha. After those threesome HCs Sons did for me last night I couldn’t get this idea out of my mind, and then I heard “Come a Little Bit Closer” when I was listening to the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 soundtrack (I have always loved that song lol) and it was all just so perfect… so here’s this self-indulgent drabble, lol


There she was—the most gorgeous woman in Eos, sitting at the bar with nothing but her phone to keep her company. On a night like this a woman that beautiful wouldn’t normally be left alone, but most of the bar’s male patrons are giving her a wide berth. Pussies, all of em. Tredd takes a large sip of his drink as he lets his eyes wander over every delicious curve. She looks up suddenly, her eyes boring into his own, and he feels a sudden warmth spreading through his body as she smiles prettily for him.

“Tredd…” Nyx’s voice in his ear carries a warning tone. “I don’t care how tempting it is. Don’t do it.”

Tredd rolls his eyes at Nyx. “I’m not about to ignore a clear invitation from the only woman worthy of my dick in this shithole…” His eyes fall on Crowe just across the table, and he gives her a lewd wink. “…present company excluded, of course. I’m always happy to let you see what you’ve been missing.”

“Gods above, you’ve done it Tredd… you’ve cured my homosexuality!! What is this feeling… it’s like… a sudden, irresistible craving for dick?” Crowe turns to her right, placing a coy hand on her neighbor’s arm. “What are you up to tonight, Pelna sweetie?” Pelna sputters and coughs into his beer, his face darkening in embarrassment. Crowe turns back to Tredd, slinging an arm around her friend’s shoulders and curving her middle finger up in a rude gesture.

“Don’t get your panties in a bunch, Crowe. I’ve got my eye on a sweeter prize tonight…” Tredd tilts his chin up at the woman across the room and raises his glass to her, taking another sip. Nyx shrugs, returning to his own drink.

“Don’t say I didn’t warn you…”

“You were wrong. You were wrong all along , Liliann.” His voice was soft,pleading. “I never hated you. I can’t hate you even if I want to. I-“

Your blinking cursor looked like a bold black line from hell in your tired eyes.Your hands were poised over the worn keyboard of the laptop , waiting for the words to come to you – but they didn’t. The perfectionist in you refused to write an half hearted ending , even though your mind screamed in protest.
Sighing dejectedly, your eyes closed as you leaned your head against the couch. It wasn’t easy being an online writer. You were a well-known writer on Tumblr and Wattpad, writing fanfictions and original stories alike. Juggling your college life with your writing took out quite a chunk of your free time, but you wouldn’t have it any other way.

i started watching the loo because of lexa. i saw pictures of her on tumblr and thought “wait, where is this cool warrior is from?” and when i saw that is was the loo i was like “wait, there isn’t any cool warrior in that book” (yes, i had the misfortune of reading it). so i decided to give it a try and by the time i started s2 i was already into it (i didn’t expect i was going to like clarke so much, and other things). 

when lexa appeared, it was interesting because… i wasn’t exactly surprised like everybody else about she being the commander, because i knew. but my brain started to run to comprehend what i was seeing vs. what i saw about her. maybe she wasn’t the commander yet? maybe she wasn’t as good as i thought? 

and i thought that somehow kane/jaha would convince the poor servant girl to kill the actual commander and work against their own people to save sky people. (all of this during the episode)

and then… nope. she actually is the commander. she is as powerful as i thought and even better than i could’ve imagined.

and alycia also has this sweet, even if strong voice, that i didn’t expect at all. i remember struggling to “associate” this voice to the person. i think seeing lexa, the commander, is far different than seeing alycia actually being the commander and that’s beautiful

zodiarch  asked:

how do u juggle multiple projects asking 4 a friend

i don’t im dying please send help

ok but joking aside uhhh

  • i’ve got like a lot of free time because 1) i only have work on 3 days of the week, 2) no more school, and 3) i stopped playing as much ffxiv recently due to being busy, so that saved hours of time in my day ahaha
  • got my handy dandy calendar sort of to try and keep track of when things are due, scream a lot in panic, and then work on stuff in bits and pieces??? i also have a calendar on my phone, and a weekly calendar (it’s vld and super adrable) that i tick off to Feel Cool, and the tatsumaki bot on one of my discord servers has a to-do list function so i put reminders there too
  • my adhd ass can’t focus on one project at a time so whenever i get antsy about something, i just swap to a different wip for a bit, but i will primarily try to focus on whatever is more immediate
  • posting progress pics to my friends also helps bc i’m a ho for validation (thanks for putting up with my wip spam everybody haha) 
  • sometimes i stream bc it forces me to keep working on a thing without zoning out too long, and i end up trying to make things look a bit nicer than if i was just dicking off on my own rofl
  • if I feel the urge to do something else fun I just do that instead for a bit instead of trying to Fight My Own Brain because I end up wasting more time that way, better to take a break and see if i’m up for more work later
  • i save time to hang out with friends and do fun stuff so i don’t become a student athlete meme, otherwise momgan will ground me, and sometimes just chilling and goofing off re-energizes you or gives you more inspiration for other things
  • sometimes your original plan is too complicated and you just don’t have time for it so there’s nothing wrong with changing some things to fit your schedule better, and sometimes that actually makes the final product better than before!
  • i find out what time of day works best for me to do certain things, like i know late afternoon or evening + night is my most productive for drawing and writing or things that require longer focus, so i save most of my work for those hours; while commuting i let my brain wander about random ideas and things to save time for later bc i’m bored anyways; chicken nugget lunch sundays are when i do misc planning and brainstorming
  • this isn’t really a ‘how’ but… i draw pretty fast i guess, so that comes in handy when i’m juggling so many things ahaha

im not actually sure if i answered your original question any more bc i got kinda offtopic and im very sleepy but here u go


I wish I had a lot to say about this (ahem) universally beloved classic, but the only thing I really have to report is that I’ve finally seen it. I’m not proud to admit that I’d never seen it before, but there’s no shortage of important cinematic achievements on that list, so why protect my dignity on this account? I’ll just have to default to the “better late than never” defense and get on with my life.

As everybody but me already knew, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello play a pair of baggage handlers who get entangled in some monster-based intrigue when the Wolfman enlists their help to find and destroy Dracula before he can revive Frankenstein’s monster–which of course, he has already done by the time the boys get it in gear. However, unbeknownst to them, they’ve got bigger problems than that: Costello’s suspiciously smitten girlfriend Sandra wants him for his brains, literally. She plans to swap out his simple cerebral matter for Frank’s famously volatile “abnormal brain” in order to make the behemoth easier for Dracula to control. Timelessly hilarious hijinx ensue.

The really sad truth is that I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen *an* Abbott and Costello movie. I more or less grew up with the Stooges, occasional Marx Brothers offerings, and a smattering of Desi and Lucy, and I finally saw some Keystone Cops in college. It’s probably the case that I saw a William Castle or even a lighter Alfred Hitchcock movie here or there, but I hardly remember them, as my parents still weren’t too keen on filling my young mind even with humorous or highly artificial violence. I bring this up in the context of thinking about how an individual’s tastes are formed. As I often mention, I’ve never had much of a film background outside of that which I formed with the abundant help of my beast fiend at school. As a child mostly deprived of audio/visual stimulation, I fantasized about whatever must be the world’s most macabre thrills, as presented on the pages of the verboten Fangoria, or in intellectually sanctioned smut surveys like J. Hoberman’s Midnight Movies. With my imagination in such a gory froth, I more or less skipped over the thought of Universal Monsters and the like. Even earlyish black and white thrillers that I might have found more innocent in my severely underdeveloped state, like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD or PSYCHO, were kept from me (I was forbidden to watch PSYCHO until I was 18), and wound up more or less off my radar as I fixated on blood-soaked extremes like PHANTASM or THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE; I managed to give myself reoccurring nightmares about these movies years before I ever got to see them. So, for all this, I often wonder how I would have developed psychologically if I had been pointed at bedrock genre films with more wit and grace than the overstimulating slashers I craved. 

It’s very possible that I was just inherently too dull of a kid for that to have helped me, but I like to dream about an alternative timeline in which an earlier start could have shaped me into a more sophisticated person. For now all I can do is catch up, which isn’t the worst thing in the world. I often envy people who, by some lapse in viewing habits, are about to see my favorite movies for the first time–and I’m essentially that person in relation to everybody else. At least I’m unlikely to ever run out of things to watch.

asdfghjkl okay I, for some reason, thought that I had just imagined Present Mic’s ‘everybody say hey’ line, and I spent the last few minutes desperately searching for some sort of clip that would prove me wrong,,,

Once I found it though, it was somehow better and worse than I imagined, and honestly? What a mood

(Also, somewhere along the way, my brain misread the memo and thought he said “Lemme hear you say HEYYYYY”, so now that’s in my search history, thanks BNHA)

Title: Expectations

Pairings: N/A; hinted NaruHina

Summary: Boruto and Himawari were expected to be great. What wasn’t expected was how they went about doing it.

Disclaimer: Still don’t own anything

Note: My headcanons got away from me again. Thought I was done, but nope. Himawari’s part is now out here. It got too long so I had to separate it. Enjoy.

Part 1: Boruto

When it came to chakra, most people agreed that Uzumaki Boruto and Uzumaki Himawari were two of the luckiest people in the world. Born with the ridiculously large capacity of their father and the chakra control ofthe Hyuuga, both children were considered potential powerhouses even before they entered the Academy. It was expected that the siblings would aim for the Hokage title and become frontline fighters like their parents – taking dangerous missions and saving the world in fiery explosions and awe inspiring battles. This wasn’t entirely wrong, but then it wasn’t entirely right.

Boruto was the first to challenge this idea. Even at the young age of seven, he held some resentment towards the Hokage title. Oh sure, he loved his dad to pieces and was proud to be his son, but the position of Hokage was not one he thought very highly of if only because it limited the amount of time his father spent with him. So Boruto never even entertained the idea of taking up the mantle. It just was not a job he wanted. But still, he looked up to his parents and wanted to become a shinobi.

zemyla  asked:

Is there anything you can tell us about how to move to Ireland?

Well, you could do it the way I did. I married an Irish guy. Or more specifically, someone entitled from birth to an Irish passport and Irish citizenship. Since @PeterMorwood’s parents were born on the island of Ireland before 1922 (and the establishment of the border between Northern Ireland [presently part of the UK] and the Republic of Ireland, he was entitled to either citizenship, or both.) When I married him I acquired UK residency (because we were running around England and Scotland for a while there: SPOCK’S WORLD was written in a cottage attached to a Scottish castle near Ayr) and then, a bit later, Irish residency when we moved over here. Google “UK Ireland Common Travel Area” for some of the ramifications. Five years after I moved here, I acquired Irish / EU citizenship in my own right, secondary to marriage to him.

Due to the wonderfulness of Ireland, you too can marry an Irish person of the gender of your interest / choice, whether you are yourself of that gender or of another. I’ll leave you to look into this.

(I’m sticking a cut in here, because this thing just keeps growing…)

oh my god it all sounds amazing



Kurt doesn’t need to look at his screen.

First of all, not many people would call him at this hour–except his dad, if it was an emergency, and he wouldn’t start with a drunken “hey”.

Second of all, he knows that voice well enough to recognize it.

“Hey, Blaine,” he says between two yawns, snuggling in his bed.

“Oh, hey Kurt.”

Kurt lets out a sleepy giggle. “Didn’t you mean to call me?”

“‘M not sure.”

“Where are you, Blaine.”

“… ‘m not sure.”

Kurt is torn between laughing at how utterly cute his best friend sounds when he’s drunk and smacking his head into the wall because of how cute his best friend sounds when he’s drunk.

Best friends are not supposed to enter the “cute” category.

Charming, yes, beautiful, sure, but cute?

i would say that writing this fic* gave me a lot of feelings about the Mysterious Coach Bittle, but frankly i’ve had them for a while, so i thought i’d put down some Big, Hot Takes™ on why a complex coach is infinitely more interesting to me than the coach that i see for the majority of fanon** and how i think that specifically affects my interpretation of bitty as unreliable (yet lovable) narrator. 

(actually, i have lots of those, but those probably could go into an essay of their own.)

New comic! (link)

It’s hard to see someone you love hurting. My first instincts are to fuss, trying to make everything as easy as possible, but when you’re dealing with mental illness, you may as well be a butterfly fluttering against a concrete wall.

I have to remind myself that more often than not, the best help I can give is to sit, and be quiet, and provide pats, as the people I love have done for me. We can’t solve the problem of someone being unwell. We can’t fix their brains or make them better. But we can be a presence. 

How that looks is different for everybody. Me and mine, we do well with passive physical contact and light patting. Pat pat pat. 

999 Character Descriptions:

i was introducing my friend to the characters and she thought these were funny so

To start off, every character has a number, and their name is a codename, which they came up with, for that number. 

This is Ace. Bracelet number 1. He’s okay I guess.

This is Snake. Bracelet number 2. i loVE HIM HE’S MY PRECIOUS BABY MY FAVE I CANNOT. He may be blind but he’s got really good hearing and can still beat you into next week so don’t fuck with him. Or his sister.

This is Santa. Bracelet number 3. He’s a little shit and drops the f-bomb a lot. You have been warned.

This is Clover. Bracelet number 4. I love her. She’s Snake’s little sister. Best brother-sister team ever. Don’t mess with her or bad things will happen.

This is Junpei. The main character wow. He makes really bad puns all the time and it’s glorious. His bracelet number is 5, but everybody calls him by his real name because SOMEBODY decided to tell everybody his name.

This is June. Bracelet number 6. Real name: Akane Kurashiki. Childhood friend of Junpei, and she’s the somebody who told everybody Junpei’s name. Sometimes she says the randomest shit you ever heard. Nobody’s really sure what goes on up in that brain of hers.

This is Seven. I’m sure you can guess his bracelet number. He’s very creative. He also has amnesia, if you were looking for that particular trope.

This is Lotus. Bracelet number 8. Boob game too strong. Don’t underestimate her math skills.

This is the 9th Man. His face describes his personality better than my words ever could.

(disclaimer: this is entirely just my personal feelings on the matter) 

tip to parents of autistic kids:

when your kid tells you something they think or do or feel that is likely an autistic related thing, don’t go “oh everybody does that” to try to make them feel better. cause the kid already knows not “everybody does that” and it would be much more validating to hear “you do that for a reason about how your brain works and that is okay” than to hear “apparently everyone does that but not really, you are different for no good reason and you can just continue feeling like a freak"
