Okay so today’s a very amazing person’s birthday, wheytoast, and it would be criminal of me not to make a hella cute post about it. Basically, this lil dork has helped me through a lot lately and he’s my closest friend. He may be an annoying lil shit, but I love him just the same. His voice is the best thing everand he smells amazing.He somehow makes me laugh even in the darkest of times and is just super sweet and caring, I don’t think I’ve ever had the pleasure of talking to and getting to know anyone as amazing as him in my whole life. I could probably go on forever but I wont. Just wanted to express how much this lil shit means to me. Have a good day dork <3
We all should choose our friends carefully.
I used to think that no one could know me better than somebody else,
because you’re inside yourself, your body, you can’t see yourself.
If you think like that, you surround yourself with
other people who are willing to tell you who you are,
which are usually judgmental people …
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.
to show the grumpy Chief of Staff some love. This week we are voting for our top top Elizabeth and Russell moments - remember to post them in order with your favourite being at

The Pipeline Report is a 1000 page document.” “Do you need to read it? Of course you do.” 1.06a: “Excuse me, but I’m the Secretary of State and you will speak to me with the respect that that office demands.” “For now you are” “You wanna condescend me that’s fine, you’re going to have to fire me first.” 1.06b: “I think there’s only one way to salvage this crisis.” “Oh I swear to God, if you say air support right now….” 1.07: “The Indians nearly crashed Twitter demanding the Texas hotshots.” “#bringthecowboystotheindians” 1.08a: “Yes I heard about the arm candy top 10 list, that’s very impressive.

There are a lot of great Elizabeth and Russell interactions, so you can
imagine how hard it was for beautifuldisastr and I to come up with this shortlist.
We’re really sorry if your favourite isn’t on the list.

It would be SO much easier for me to collect
the votes if you make a new post to give your votes. Adding your votes to
end the end of someone else’s post may cause me to overlook them.
If I thank you for your votes, you’ll know that
I have them. If I don’t…I’ve missed them.
Please tag your votes with #ElizabethandRussellTop10
