one of the best person

anonymous asked:

So I really need to buy a bed (I've had the same futon for two years, and it is horrible.) I'd like a full/queen that could safely hold two people, and will give me room to sleep all octopus-like. I've been looking at some online retailers that sell foam mattresses, which seem nice, especially since they're on the cheaper side, which is important. Any advice on this big purchase? Dos/don'ts? Anything is welcome. I'm hoping you can be the adultier adult I need on this.

The last two times I bought a mattress, I just went to Ikea and tested all of theirs until I found one I liked, then had that one delivered, so I may not be the best person to advise at this point :D I don’t know if you know that most mattresses you buy, you’ll also have to buy a box spring to go underneath it (basically a stable mattress base, which sometimes costs as much as the mattress and is very heavy). Ikea mattresses don’t require box springs, just a slatted wooden base that costs about $30, which makes them very cheap indeed on top of being inexpensive to start with – but it also means that if you’re buying a bed frame it should be an Ikea frame, and while they do have some very inexpensive frames, that of course will add to the cost. And if you are counting on delivery to bring you your mattress, there are places that have much cheaper delivery than Ikea. Some furniture places will deliver free if you’re buying over X amount, which honestly, with mattresses you usually are.  

But since I haven’t bought a mattress anywhere else in 10+ years, I am of limited use regarding purchasing elsewhere :D I don’t know if there are now mass-market mattresses that don’t need a box spring; I know from endless podcast advertising that when you buy a Casper mattress you don’t get a box spring with it, but I don’t know if that’s because they like to ship in small boxes and expect you to have one, or because you don’t need one. (Also this is not an endorsement of Casper mattresses, I have no idea what they’re like, they’re just advertised on every damn podcast I listen to.) 

So I think question one, when buying a mattress, should probably be “will I also need a box spring?” 

Question two would probably have to be “How comfortable will this be to sleep on?” Because having slept on spring and foam (my current mattress is foam), I don’t really notice much difference between the two, but I know that other people have very strong preferences. Your best way of figuring this out is probably to find a local mattress store and go test some mattresses out; this will also give you a good idea of whether you want a Full or a Queen (I used to own a full, now own a queen, and while I love having a mattress that size, I probably only use about 2/3 of it). You don’t have to buy at the store, just use it to test size and whether you like spring or foam better. I sleep on an extra-firm, which I bought by mistake, I should have bought the regular-firm, but I kind of love the extra-firm now. 

Some mail-order-only mattresses, where there’s no showroom or anything in which you can test them, have a “trial period” setup where you get usually something like 100 days to see if you like their mattress, and you can return it if you don’t. I suggest that if you go with a company that has one of these options, which is not a bad way to go, maker sure you google around a little to check that returning it isn’t an impossible task – sometimes “trial period” style returns are made deliberately impossible so that you’ll give up and keep the thing even if you don’t like it. 

I hope this helps!

Hi June! Whats your opinion about green lantern Lena luthor? Also what you think about her canon telepathy powers?

GREEN LANTERN LENA IS SOMETHING I LIVE FOR i love one (1) power couple 😥😥😥

Canon telepathy for Lena has so much angst potential… Imagine… Your best friend, the one person you trust, the person you’ve fallen in love with…. Always lying to you. 🙃🙃🙃

Except also funny because imagine a baby gay Kara with all these gay thoughts that confuse Lena but also,,,, “uh wait so does she like me or does she comment the same thing on women’s cleavages?” “ohhhh okay just me” “so does she like me” “STOP THINKING ABOUT KISSING ME JUST DO IT” “OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE” and then Lena just kisses her and it’s the one time Kara has zero thoughts for Lena to know wait did I get telepathy right

if i have any sixteen year olds following me…… ur gonna change so fucking much just worry about doing your best and having fun nothing else matters

Rian Johnson has confirmed that Adam went to Ireland to act off-screen opposite Daisy Ridley to get emotionally truthful performances, like the good and generous actor he is. We knew this but I just had another thought:

Adam Driver probably went shirtless off-camera PURELY to get Daisy Ridley’s GENIUNE reaction to his body and his pecs filmed onscreen, and I think that is beautiful

in a heartbeat (2017)

about shiro not backing keith’s story in bom: i think there’s other factors that a lot of people overlook. namely, the fact that shiro’s response isn’t just him reacting to an isolated incident–its him finally putting together the pieces after a long time of dealing with constant doubt and concern. because he knows something’s up with keith. in season 2, he’s the only one that does. on two separate occasions, he takes keith aside and tries to talk to him, to ask him what’s wrong, to try and get him to open up. and every time keith shuts him out? you can see the fear on shiro’s face, can see that he feels like they’re slowly drifting apart and he’s losing keith

these two strike me as friends who probably used to tell each other everything. so the fact that keith is refusing to talk now, that he’s forcing this distance between them? shiro doesn’t know what to think. and when he sees keith has this alien knife and is maybe part galra? maybe isn’t even from earth at all? shiro is very quickly finding out that this person he’s very close to, someone who he thought he knew everything about, is quite literally becoming alien. his best friend is suddenly a stranger, and he’s questioning whether he ever even knew him at all  

looking at shiro’s face here, he looks just as panicked as keith. despite how good he is at improvising and acting, he doesn’t even have it in him to scrape together an excuse or cover story. he’s genuinely shocked, and just blurts the words out without thinking. “I…I don’t know”–he hesitates, stumbles. he’s seeing the person he thought he was really close to in a whole new light, and he doesn’t know how to handle it

and keith? when he’s down on the ground, the first thing he says is “Shiro, you know me.” becuase he’s trying desperately to bridge that gap, to make shiro see–to prove that, even if keith’s going through some shit, even if he doesn’t know who he himself is, he hasn’t changed. the person shiro knew is still the same. 

also, look at shiro’s face after that exchange. that doesn’t look like someone who just sold out or distrusts their friend. he takes the time to look at keith and kinda check in, to see how vulnerable and scared he looks (scared because he thinks shiro doesn’t trust him)

before he goes right back to glaring and confronting the bom

he then tells keith theyre leaving and starts walking away. he realizes there’s some kind of conflict here between keith and the bom, so he tries to separate them. if he really didnt trust his friend, he would’ve insisted he either 1 hand over the knife or 2 started asking a bunch of personally invasive questions–after all, this is the person that insisted on morally grey mind control interrogation to extract information from a galra. 

instead, he sees how honestly hurt and confused keith looks, so he gives him some space and tries to quickly remove him from the situation 

and when keith insists on staying? shiro’s worried look in the background there? even if he doesn’t understand what’s been going on with keith all this time, he’s clearly concerned, clearly cares. he backs off a bit and let’s keith say his piece, because he realizes just how much all this means to him. shiro doesn’t interfere again until after he hears keith’s life will be on the line, and immediately tries to get him out of there 

he goes right up to keith’s side when he tries to reason with him, and we get a repeat of that shoulder touch thing these two do so much. shiro especially does this to keith a lot, and it honestly seems like a kind of grounding thing. he reaches out to keith, tries to tell him that whatever’s going on his life isn’t worth it, holds onto him to offer some kind of comfort. the way shiro tries to convince him here reminds me a lot of that thing joaquim said in an interview, about how “shiro is sort of the only thing that can really calm him down and keep him in check.” shiro very much tries to do that here, sees that keith is angry and upset and tries to keep him from making a reckless decision. 

was shiro really taken aback and hurt initially? i think so, yes. but once he kinda has a bit of time to recover and think things through he’s still thinking of keith and trying to help him as best he can–this is also why he doesn’t try to stop him again until it’s absolutely necessary, because he respects keith’s volition and understands the importance of that autonomy. when push comes to shove, regardless of the situation, shiro still steps up to protect keith
