Cait in Milan!!(Let’s Try again...)

Ok, I had written a beautiful post earlier but it vanished into nothing as soon as I hit POST. Thank you very much Tumblr!!

BTW, here I am again. I am still processing that I saw Cait today, processing the fact that she is very beautiful, and kind and nice with fans, posing, signing autographs, always smiling and thanking people. A true classy lady, believe me. And gorgeous, and TALL. My God she is TALL!! So unbelievably TALL! Anyway, first of all I want to thank my lovely and dear friend @samuela65 who convinced me to go and try to see Cait. I was very skeptic on succeeding, I expected a lot of people there, so I was a bit discouraged but she persuaded me to even try and considering I practically live attached to Milan I was like “WTF” and armed with my precious camera I ventured downtown. Let me tell you that I realized that Cait was getting off her car even before I saw her because a group of fans gasped loudly even before she was out and photographers rushed to take pictures. I felt my brain froze for a god 3 seconds I believe. Unfortunately I’ve found myself almost face to face with T… who stood there a bit looking around and then went inside leaving Cait to fans and photographers. Then Cait went in herself to attend the show. Let me tell you that the guy in the grey suit who you saw in some pix opened her car’s door and welcomed her with a warm smile. You get my hint here right? Ok, let’s go to the moment where I spotted Tony leaving early, in a bit of a hurry, looking for a bar is my guess because he stopped almost abruptly in front of a restaurant. I snapped a couple of pictures, not classy I know, but I won’t share them publicly so no harm done. Back to Cait: she exited the building and all fans (a small group) surronded her and also photographers got back to her for more photos. She stayed there and smiled, and took selfies, and signed things, and thanked people continuously. The presumed bf was still missing even when two men approached her and asked people kindly to let her go because her car was coming. AND TO GET TO IT SHE WALKED RIGHT BY ME FOLLOWING THE GROUP OF PEOPLE SHE WAS LEAVING WITH. And I was like “IS SHE EVEN REAL??? AM I STILL ALIVE??”. She was with the guy in the grey suit, another two guys and the ladyfriend who posted their photos on IG. Then she waited a little for her car and then they had to get to the car because apparently the driver can’t get to them to pick them and for the SECOND TIME SHE WALKED BY ME with her elegance and beauty while thanking the guy in the grey suit who was telling her that the fans who met her soon after were shaking and told him they love her so much. And I was again like “ARE YOU REAL CAIT?? ARE YOU?? AND AM I STILL BREATHING?” because I’m pretty sure I wasn’t and btw if I am to meet Sam someday I am pretty sure I will DIE ON THE SPOT!!! So TAKE NOTICE: IF YOU KNOW I AM GOING TO GO MEET SAM AND HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM ME AFTER A FEW HOURS JUST CALL THE POLICE!!! Because believe me: these people are gorgeous on TV and more than STUNNING in RL!!!

aries:
pumpkin moons 
and cloudy skies
persuade you
to linger within
midnight’s unknown

taurus:
pressing leaves
between wax pages,
you’ll do anything to
capture autumn’s aura


gemini:
in transitioning from
verdancy to decay,
you hide cobwebbed breath  
in an ephemeral spectacle


cancer:
you absorb the sight
of a world aflame,
and rekindle your faint
autumnal glow


leo:
you moth to burning trees,
pretending their fire will
replace warmth once known 


virgo:
crackling fires echo
the crunch of dried leaves,
even at home, faded nature
cannot be contained


libra:
the landscape is a canvas
speckled orange and red,
bleeding and melting as one
(you want to be a masterpiece,
but cannot seem to compare)


scorpio:
dusk always arrives too soon—
consuming the sky before
daylight can ever be known


sagittarius:
deciduous embers fall and
become illusory wildfires—
whispers of warmth to
drown out the biting cold 


capricorn:
rusty trees and metallic winds
herald the inevitability
of summer’s end 


aquarius:
the brisk and lonely air send
tremors through your veins;
no one is immune to November’s
whispery atmosphere


pisces:
apple-tinted winds 
mask the reality of
haunting shadows and
barren trees that follow
wherever you go

i wrote that spongebob quote in iambic pentameter

“With glassened bones enwrapped by parchment skin
Since parturition, pain has lied therein
Come dawn, my legs asunder doth become
And arms soon follow, splitting two from one
With moonlight comes my wakeness without peace
‘Til blood make haste, persuade my heart to cease.”

SUHO: I think he’d be on board right away, probably already having thought about adoption a lot before you brought it up

CHANYEOL: He’d like the idea, it wouldn’t take much at all to persuade him since he loves kids (he is one)

KYUNGSOO: Soo would be a bit apprehensive, never really having thought about being a dad. But I think after talking over it a bit, he might agree

BAEKHYUN: 100% for it. Yup, he loves kids and has prob always wanted to be a dad so no persuation needed here

JONGIN: You might need some very good persuasion skills for this one. I think he’d be really conflicted by the idea of adopting a child, mainly doubting his own potential and worrying about his and your career/lifestyle

SEHUN: He’s very young, so I think this would make him nervous. He wouldn’t be totally opposed to the idea, but he’d like to wait a while until the time is right

XIUMIN: This one’s getting on in his years, so he’s have family on the brain. He’d be super happy to find out you do too

CHEN: I think he’d just be surprised that you wanted kids with him (an actual kid), because he wouldn’t think he’d make a good dad. With a little confidence boosting, you might get him to say yes

YIXING: To this guy, everything is out of the blue, so this would be out of the DEEP blue. But the idea wouldn’t be unpleasant for him, and he’d take it into serious consideration

~*FORMERS*~

KRIS: Aw yeah, Yifan would be a good dad. He likes kids, so I think he’d like this idea

TAO: Not really into it. As I’ve said before, he likes his freedom and unchained lifestyle so I don’t think having to become responsible for another human life would appeal to him all that much, especially having to go throw a shit ton of paperwork for it

LUHAN: The question would shock him, but he could go either way. He’d either like the idea or wouldn’t be into it. I think it would really depend on the circumstances

New York Times strongly endorses Hillary Clinton, praising her 'intellect, experience, and courage'
With just over six weeks to go before Election Day, the New York Times editorial board has issued a powerful endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, and there’s nothing half-...

With just over six weeks to go before Election Day, the New York Times editorial board has issued a powerful endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, and there’s nothing half-hearted or subtle about it:

In any normal election year, we’d compare the two presidential candidates side by side on the issues. But this is not a normal election year. A comparison like that would be an empty exercise in a race where one candidate — our choice, Hillary Clinton — has a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas, and the other, Donald Trump, discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway.

But, says the Times, their endorsement carries a deeper purpose:

But this endorsement would also be an empty exercise if it merely affirmed the choice of Clinton supporters. We’re aiming instead to persuade those of you who are hesitating to vote for Mrs. Clinton — because you are reluctant to vote for a Democrat, or for another Clinton, or for a candidate who might appear, on the surface, not to offer change from an establishment that seems indifferent and a political system that seems broken.

Running down the other guy won’t suffice to make that argument. The best case for Hillary Clinton cannot be, and is not, that she isn’t Donald Trump.

The best case is, instead, about the challenges this country faces, and Mrs. Clinton’s capacity to rise to them.

And indeed, the paper makes a ringing, affirmative case for why Clinton would be an excellent president, tracing her long public career from her earliest days as an advocate for children who had no voice through her time as secretary of state, when she pushed for sanctions against Iran that ultimately led to last year’s historic nuclear accord. The Times doesn’t shy away from noting Clinton’s mistakes, such as her vote in favor of the Iraq war, but it also offers a stinging rebuke to the overheated coverage of her emails, saying that in light of “the real challenges that will occupy the next president,” Clinton’s email server “looks like a matter for the help desk.”

Please read the entire editorial. And if you know friends who are wavering in their decision this fall, please share it with them, too. It might just convince a few fence-sitters.
