A woman let her dog shit on the airport floor. So I shit on her plans.

While walking to my gate at LAX, I noticed a woman whose dog was in the middle of doing its business. The woman was loudly face-timing with her back to the dog, so I assumed she didn’t notice. That was likely the thought shared by the gentleman who tried to get her attention.

“Excuse me, miss?” he said, in a polite tone. The woman glared at him. “Your dog,” he sheepishly continued, pointing to the mid-poop pup.

The woman rolled her eyes and went back to face time as the man slinked away, seemingly embarrassed.

“Some people,” she bellowed to her face-time companion with no hint of irony, “are just so damned rude.”

When her dog finished, the woman started walking away, leaving everything right on the airport floor. Another woman tried to stop her.

“You’re not going to clean that up?” she asked, as shocked as the rest of us were.

“They have people for that,” the offender replied, disappearing into the crowd, as much as someone yelling into their phone can disappear into a crowd.

I stood near the pile and warned people to walk around it while someone else got a maintenance worker’s attention. No one said anything – we were so shocked that anyone could be that horrible.

When I got to my gate, the woman was there, too. Great – we were both going to Tokyo. When I travel abroad, I get embarrassed by other Americans doing things one hundred times less embarrassing than leaving animal feces on the floor of an airport. To make it worse, her dog was now barking at everyone who walked by.

I have nothing against people flying with their dogs, I do it often. But it is a privilege I take seriously. My dog is well-trained and behaves better than most people. He certainly behaves better than that a**hole.

Speaking of a**holes, there is a pet relief area inside LAX, past security, just two gates away from where The Party Pooper let her dog go to town. It didn’t matter - she was the type of person to litter three feet from an empty garbage can.

While her dog barked at the world, the woman had moved from face-timing with no headphones to listening to music with no headphones. I don’t like to throw around the word “sociopath” but I don’t know how else I could explain just how selfish and terrible of a person she was. I’d bet her car was somewhere in long-term parking, parked across three spots with paint on the bumper from the child’s bike she hit without leaving a note.

Everyone else tried to ignore her, sitting as far away from her as they could. I am not everyone else.

I sat down right next to the horrible woman. “Are you going to London on business?” I said.

“I’m going to Tokyo,” she responded gruffly, annoyed that I interrupted her DJing.

“Oh, I said. Then you better hurry. That flight got moved to gate 53C. This is the flight to London.”

I figured I could give her a little moment of panic as payback for how terribly she was treating everyone. I didn’t predict what would happen next. She grabbed her bags and her dog in a huff, and stormed out of the gate without even checking. She was so self-involved, she didn’t notice that the monitor at our gate still said Tokyo and almost everyone at the gate was Japanese.

Based on her actions, she believed me that the flight had been moved, so she’s also an asshole for not thanking me. “Some people,” I thought as I watched her rush away from the gate without stopping her, “are just so damned rude.”

The flight to Tokyo was at gate 69A, so the 53 gates were on the other side of the next terminal. And I felt guilty knowing she probably berated some poor clerk who had to explain to her that there was no gate 53C.

I don’t know if she made it back to this flight before we took off or not, but I didn’t see her board and I don’t hear her dog. Her missing her flight was not my original intention, but it would be a fine punishment for her being so rude to everyone and making a low-paid stranger clean feces off the floor. What makes me wonder if I went too far is the knowledge that Delta only has one flight to Tokyo each day. Whoops.

Maybe she can re-book on another airline. I hear they have people for that.

There’s a saddening lack of books with pansexual/panromantic rep included in queer book recs, so I’ve compiled a list of books for us pans, that I will be continuously updating.

Some notes: I haven’t read the majority of these books, so I’m trusting the people who sent me recs and the research I’ve done. Some of the books are part of series, and I’m not sure if the pan character is in one or some/all books, so keep that in mind.

For each book I’ve put the genre, the names of the characters if I could find them, if it’s canon or implied/hinted, and a goodreads link.

Happy reading!

Just a couple of things I hope to God harry’s tour merch entails:

- necklaces with charms that are replicas of his tattoos (the moth, the swallows etc).

- candles that have hidden rings inside.

- prints of pink skies and stars and the view of earth from his home planet.

- lip stain that is the exact color of his lips.

- individualized mix tapes of his favorite songs. there are several different versions and each one is a mystery surprise.

- copies of his favorite books, worn in and used.

- and someway for me to give him my entire soul. 

Each house as: a Disney song

Some Batdad Headcanons

- When Dick first came to live with him, Bruce purchased a bunch of parent help books. He buys new ones with each kid he adopts, and no matter how much he studies he’s always unprepared for his psychotic children and their antics. 

- Everyone assumes Stephanie is his daughter and every time someone mentions it he and Steph are both thoroughly grossed out by the thought. 

- Damian shows Bruce his drawings sometimes, and every time, much to Damian’s embarrassment, Bruce insists on hanging them on the fridge. 

- The cabinets at Wayne Manor are filled to the brim with World’s Best Dad mugs. 

- Jason owns a Dad’s Little Stinker t-shirt. 

- When they were younger, Bruce used to let his Robins ride on his back if they got tired on patrol. 

- Tim falls asleep in random places when he’s particularly sleep-deprived, and each time Bruce will sigh tiredly before picking him up and carrying him up to his room, planning on drugging his coffee to get him to sleep more often.   

- Once he had to tie Damian to a post when he was misbehaving on patrol. 

- The first time Jason called him “Dad”, (on accident, mind you), he legit cried and hugged him for ten minutes straight. 

- He rarely has a bed to himself because his kids always invade his room at night and insist on sleeping with him. 

- He brags about Tim all the time to his coworkers, and it only got worse after Tim actually started working at Wayne Enterprises. At least once a day Bruce will go to Tim’s office and ask how his “little slugger” is doing. 

- He lets Cass paint his nails and isn’t afraid to leave the nail polish on because he’s so proud of how good of a job she did. Everyone is too intimidated to make fun of him for it.

- Even though he’s in his twenties and has an apartment of his own, Dick will still drive all the way to Gotham and sleep in Bruce’s bed when he has nightmares. 

- Bruce attends every single one of his kids’ graduations and award ceremonies, even the pointless ones that nobody really cares about. He will be there cheering in the front row every time.  

- Bruce was surprised that Barbara gave a Father’s Day gift to him in addition to her own father. 

- He carries around a bunch of pictures of his children in his batbelt and likes showing them to the criminals he arrests. Poison Ivy makes sure he keeps her up to date on how Nightwing is doing, and Two Face loves hearing about Red Robin’s whereabouts.     


“Don’t be afraid”, I murmured. “We belong together.” I was abruptly overwhelmed by th truth of my own words. This moment was so perfect, there was no way to boubt it. His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him… It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire. “Forever,” he agreed.

Hey, Gravity Falls fandom!

Now we’re working on two non-profit artbooks: “BillBook” and “The Fourth Journal”. Each one will be hardcovered book of 200 pages where you’ll find a great collection of the most popular artworks from artists worldwide + illustrations made specially for our project. Books will be ready in March-April of this year. Many fan artists like Elentori, Ikimaru and M-arci-a are already in our project (more than 20 from all over the world!).

But we have a question for all tumblr part of huge Gravity Family: are you interested in them? Would you like to take part or make an order? Should we create a special page for the project and give you more information?

All opinions and reposts will be greatly appreciated! =)

This is the sign.

I thought Jesus is not there when I cry.

Psalm 56:8 “ You keep track of all my sorrows.
   You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
   You have recorded each one in your book. ”

I thought God hates me.

Romans 5:8 “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

I thought I’m a mistake.

Jeremaiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; “

I believed a lie. Can you trust in the truth?

John 14:6  “ Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ”

Come home. Please. Come home. Don’t believe in a lie. Trust in Jesus.<3

imagine alec in two sweaters, walking past magnus’s bookshelves, trying to figure out where each one of the books he had been reading belongs. his long fingers are a little cold and he’s dragging them over the titles and the authors because since the last time he was looking at them, magnus has rearranged them and he no longer knows the system. but just as he’s about to put one of them back in the right place, big arms slide around his shoulders and a warm chest presses right up against his back.

the minute it happens alec breathes out heavy, shutting his eyes because it’s like stepping out of the shadows into the warmth of the morning sun, having magnus’s body pressed against his. magnus’s arms are warm and his chest is warmer, and as he presses his face into alec’s shoulder, his breath is hot, permeating through alec’s sweater.

“need some help?” magnus asks, moving his head to press a couple of soft kisses into alec’s neck, just shy of his deflect rune.

alec shivers, smiling bigger than you can even imagine and glancing back. magnus is looking at him, those warm brown eyes all soft, smirking as he kisses alec’s neck again, his goatee just catching against his skin.

“please.” alec replies, but he can’t even remember what he was doing honestly.

can you believe sana and isak’s kids are 100% going to become friends. and when isak’s daughter and sana’s son become particularly interested in all things science, they each get them these giant books for kids who want to learn, books they share with each other whenever one of them pays the other a visit. and they prepare these safe experiments in the kitchen, and the kids get all excited, and sana and isak watch them complete the experiment by themselves, a smile on their faces because of how seriously they take the whole thing, and because of how much the kids’ dynamic reminds them of the one they have with their dear friend who’s been in their life for all those years now

YGO Fans: Man, I wish we had proof that Marik and Bakura were in a relationship :/

Hi, Cassie! I was wondering about the mexican characters in TDA: Are we going to see them talking more about Mexico and their family there? I really want to know more about Cristina, Diego and Jaime ❤️ Thank you for all of your books, Shadowhunters always help me when I feel bad. I hope you have a nice day 💕

Hi! You will definitely get to know all three more. One of the fun things about writing series books is that in each book, you can get to know the characters you’ve already introduced or hinted at better and more deeply. We will see Jaime, and learn more about his and Diego’s family, their secrets and their demanding past. Cristina also does often think about Mexico since she is a little homesick. And I had a lot of fun doing research in and about Mexico!

Thoughts of home tore at Cristina. Her mother, her cousins. Better, past days with Diego and Jaime: She remembered a weekend she had spent with them once, tracking a demon in the dilapidated ghost town of Guerrero Viejo. The dreamlike landscape all around them: half-drowned houses, feathery weeds, buildings long discolored by water. She had lain on a rock with Jaime under uncountable stars, and they had told each other what they wanted most in the world: she, to end the Cold Peace; he, to bring honor back to his family.

French vocab DELF B2 (1)

I have decided to post here all the vocabulary that I had to look up while working with my book Les clés du nouveau DELF B2. But, instead of doing like most people do, and writing the English (or Spanish or whatever) translation next to the French word, I’m writing the definition in French. This way, I get an understanding of the word that is much deeper and lasts longer in my brain than just the translation. I’ll be doing one post for each unit in the book, and then for each exam after those (it comes with example exams for you to practice).
