In Australia citizens of the big outlying states have nick-names. West Australians are ‘sand gropers’ because it’s so sandy here; South Australians are ‘crow eaters’ and Queenslanders are ‘banana benders’.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present a sand groper, which I rescued from the swimming pool. It busied itself wiping water from its antenna with its little mole-like front feet - it is also called a mole cricket. Then it started moving and I had to blow on it to keep it still for another photo!

Funny looking critter isn’t it? And for years I assumed a sand groper was a cute little lizard.

People have got to stop purposely misspelling Karrueche Tran’s name. I’ve seen so many different nick names that people have given her and they are extremely disrespectful. It might be different from what you are used to but her name is apart of her heritage and culture. She can’t change that and neither can you. Please remember the last time someone said “oh I don’t know how to pronounce your name so I’ll just call you this”
If you can’t possibly shape your lips to say or spell her name right then don’t even bother.

The very first Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards started back in 1988 and it took them this long to finally have a host actually named “Nick”?

Another thing, I think that this award show allows kids to live out their fetish of having celebrities splattered with green liquid.

I think Ginny is underrated, so i’ll go with her. 

6. What would you have named Harry and Ginny’s middle child?

Albus Arthur(I really like the nick name Al. I also thought about Albus Rubeus, but I didn’t go with that one cause I thought one Ginny’s parents should get a name in there and because if I got to rename Lily Luna it would be Lily Ruby for Hagrid.) 

7. What house did you get sorted into on Pottermore?
8. Do you agree with the house you got into?
I actually, i didn’t when i first got in. I thought that subconsciously i answered the questions with the answers that i knew gryffindor’s would, but that didn’t even make sense cause i honestly just answered them with what i would pick. I thought i wasn’t brave enough. but then my dad, who saw i was upset, asked me what i would do if a compete stranger to me was at gunpoint. i said i would do anything to get them away from the person who had the gun. he asked me if i would do that even if i got hurt and i said yes. I realized that i didn’t have to be brave about everything to be brave, and after that i didn’t question it anymore. It was cool that he saw i was brave in a way even if i couldn’t see it myself. I’m proud to be a gryffindor.

About Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's Chinese nickname.

I feel like I do need to explain a little bit, about their nicknames…


  • Chinese name most time are just 2/3 characters, like mine, 谢晓(XieXiao), see? short and simple, easy to remember. Benedict Cumberbatch/本尼迪克特·康博巴奇(and slao Tom Hiddleston/汤姆·希德勒斯顿), those foreign actors all have very long names, so we’ll give everyone of them a nickname, sometime it’s more than one, but it’s up to your mood and how creative you can be…it’s for us to learn and rememeber them, NOT FOR FUN OR INSULT !!!
  • How? Most time we just pick the special part of them, like [James McAvoy = 一美 = One Beauty] [Michael Fassbender = 法鲨 = Shark] I think you get my point, so let go back to BC/MF………
  • Benedict Cumberbatch has TWO type of nickname, one is 缺爷 = Master Dork, or 二缺 = Dorky Dork. 缺 this word also means someone lack of honor and respect, but that’s not what we mean, he must take it the wrong way, that’s why he thinks us call him “dickhead”…WHICH WE ARE NOT !!! The other one is 马脸 = Horse Face. I personally prefer this one, and I like to call him “The Prince of Planet Hores”, but in the lovely way, we mean him NO HARM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Martin Freeman, we call him 潮爷, 爷 = Master/Lord/Sir. 潮 = Stylish/Fashion. He always dressed up so nice and neat, so there you go.
  • The Curly Fu and Peanut, it’s for Sherlock, not exactly for Benedict. Like I said, pick the special apart, pick the part that you’re gonna remember the most, THE CURLY HAIR! And Fu, in Chinese, Holmes = 福尔摩斯(FuErMoSi), Fu is short of Holmes, so that’s what it means. Curly Fu = Curly Holmes. Peanut means 花生(HuaSheng), his name is Watson = 华生(HuaSheng), same pronunciation, when you type it, it gose right in to Peanut, well it’s cute, right?

that’s it I guess…if you have any questions, pls ask me.

  • jace during basically every tmi book:i recognise the council has made a decision but given that it's a stupid ass decision, i've elected to ignore it.

[Nick] was alienated from God. He was completely separate from God. It’s a very horrible thing to believe very devoutly, to do everything right, and then to have the universe turn on you in such a way that you reevaluate your faith and say – you not only say you don’t believe, you say, “I hate you.” And I think that’s what Nick said to God.

                                      “I  h a t e  y o u.”

That’s a very poignant, tragic place to be.

"We all spend so much time not saying what we want, because we know we can’t have it. And because it sounds ungracious, or ungrateful, or disloyal, or childish, or banal. Or because we’re so desperate to pretend that things are OK, really, that confessing to ourselves they’re not looks like a bad move." — JJ, A Long Way Down
