what I'm getting from this is that barry likes older men
I mean…. basically. Not too much older, but ones who’ve got a few years on him, yeah.
Older men with broader chests and shorter hair who challenge him. Intense men with smiles that’ll melt you but who know their way around a gun (or bow, y’know). Daring men who put themselves right into the thick of it, ones who can put a bit of a growl into their voice and take charge.
how do you feel about the lady that polpol saves in the 'fight' vs alessi?
Hm this is a curious question… obviously she’s very beautiful and kind and I think the main idea Araki wanted to pass was that if things were different, Polnareff would’ve had a normal, happy life with someone good. The fact that he doesn’t tell her the truth or even abandon the mission to stay with her (which he could’ve done - his mission was to avenge his sister - he had no further “real
attachment to the crusaders besides friendship and a sense of duty to defeat DIO) was just another testament of his strength of character. You could see how much the decision weighted on him but his resolve was stronger and have I mentioned how much I love Polnareff? He deserved everything good but instead got a miserable life why Araki ;;;
A long time ago, a young boy was playing with his mother by the lake. But while she wasn’t looking, they boy was gone. She searched for him for days until she found his body washed up on the shore. Stricken with grief, his mother would do everything to get her child back. She learned the dark arts and summoned him back from the dead. But when her boy was back, she was repulsed by him. He had transformed into a monster of weeds and moss. She cast him out, exiling him. With nowhere left to go, the boy returned to the lake from which his body came. Saddened and alone, the boy cried, and his tears woke up the spirit of the lake. She felt sorry for the boy and guilty for causing his death, so she allowed him to live with her, caring for him and nurturing him like his mother wouldn’t. One day, after years of living in the bottom of the lake, the boy was crying again. “What’s wrong, my child?” asked the lake spirit. “I was watching the people play in the lake above. All of my friends have grown up, found love, and had kids of their own. And I am still a boy.” “Worry not, my child. For you will grow.” the spirit blessed her child with a song. As more years went by, the child grew and grew, until his body was the size of an island and his head was tall enough to see above the water. And from where he sat he could watch all of the people play.
”That’s a beautiful story.” Lilac said as she leaned in closer to read the old inscription on the sign. A warm breeze blowed from the lake left and brushed through her ginger hair.
“It’s probably just a story. And even if there is a kernel of truth to it, it’s probably not nearly as beautiful.” Dr. Destiny said. She was holding onto Lilac’s hand and looking up at the wooden sign. Above the inscription was an old illustration etched into the wood, an island with a face peeking above the water, with a wide warm smile looking directly at the viewer. Above that was the title of the sign: “The Story of Benagam Island”
Someone took me to Costco for the first time in my life, and I was able to buy a 4-pack of tofu for like $5. That place was pretty overwhelming! I had no idea Costco was so popular, but I can kind of see why now. The only thing that might deter me from going there again is the massive amounts of other shoppers.
I ended up getting a whole bunch of veg from a smaller grocery store; a whole mess of carrots, a head of broccoli, a head of cabbage, bell pepper, mushrooms, an onion, and a cucumber. All that cost me a little under $8.
For this stir fry, I used: - 1 block of tofu (firm) - 1/3 head of cabbage -1/3 red onion -½ head of broccoli -2 carrots -½ bell pepper -3 cloves of garlic -soy sauce -garlic powder -sriracha
First I drained the tofu and cut it into little triangles, then I fried it. Next I sauteed some carrots and onions until they started to caramelize a bit, then I added the broccoli and fresh grated garlic cloves. Then, after the broccoli started to get a tiny bit soft, I added the cabbage, bell pepper, soy sauce, sriracha, and garlic powder. Stir all that up until it’s hot and steamy, and then serve on a bed of rice!
All together, including the rice, this meal cost about $4 and yielded about 5 generous servings. That’s about 80 cents per serving!
Janet King is back and all the lesbians are alive and having sex
Janet King Review / Recap S3.01
Janet King is back
for a third season, and if you haven’t seen it you are missing out. This is
Janet King on the screen, the way I’ve been dreaming about her.
Sadly, I missed the start because I turned the tv on and it
was men talking about sport, so I went out into the kitchen to stock up on
snacks. When I came back, I realised that the sport talk was part of some sort
of court case and Janet was on the screen! Almost as importantly, next to her,
was Ellen Mackenzie, I mean BIANCA. And she wasn’t wearing her “in disguise as
a straight person” earrings.
As this was the beginning of an eight part season, I began
to try to pay attention to the plot. The biggest surprise was that Poor Woman’s
Stephen Fry is on the other team this year. He’s arguing against Janet in court.
The camera panned around and there were a number of familiar
faces, and some expository dialogue to explain who’s who. Janet’s been in Fiji
with the UN for two years, other people have had babies, changed jobs, etc. There
are lots of well-known faces, many of which were on tv last Thursday night in Seven Types of Ambiguity, and pretty
much every other show ever made, so all the explanation helps me out. This small
pool of actors/actresses is what can help make Australian tv so rich, because of
all the possibilities that open up if these shows are thought exist in the one universe.
It’s why I am fully accepting that Bianca is just Mac from Stingers, all grown
up. This time however we’ve expanded the borders and PC Garfield from the Bill
is in sitting in court…
A new face to this franchise is Susie Porter. I squeed when
her name came up on screen. But, when did that round-faced, freckled-faced
young woman I had pictures of everywhere when I was a teenager, become old
enough to play the slightly-corrupt, gin-soaked matriarch??
Hold on tight, because when Bianca and Janet are together
outside the courtroom, it’s not in our imaginations, it’s not just touching;
there is kissing. And more kissing. It is kissing well beyond anything required
by the plot, well beyond anything that any straight person has got to do this
Back in series one I was the downer who, rather than being
excited by a lesbian as the titular character on a show, was angry that Ash and
Janet showed so little affection in the first ep that many people thought that
Ash was the nanny! (Meanwhile straight characters were humping and thrusting at
every opportunity). So, all this gratuitous queer snogging is making me excited
intellectually, and in other ways.
The show returns to plot. Sport, corruption, blah blah blah.
Luckily Janet and Bianca are on screen a lot, and Janet knows so little about
sport that there’s plenty of plot-necessary exposition for those of us who’ve
THEN, FANFICTION HAPPENS. (Honestly, I wrote this once. I
Basically, there’s some sort of work reason for Janet and Bianca
to go to Melbourne and stay in a hotel. They have to swagger down the hallway.
They have to cutely get inside the door. They have to have a bath. Together.
And kiss. And Janet has to kill the mood, because she’s Janet King, but by now Bianca
knows to let it go, and wait for her girlfriend’s mind to switch back to the
good stuff, and then there’s more kissing and some giggling. And maybe some
talking, but I was completely distracted by trying to breathe and tweet and not
die all that the same time.
Cut away to the moon, and then to Janet and Bianca in bed the
next morning, holding hands.
Janet Does Not Enjoy Sport. Neither am I: there are too many
men on the screen. Bring Back the Lesbians, I yell at the tv.
Meanwhile, in the land of plot. Poor Women’s Stephen Fry is getting
flirted with by someone called Lucy. Lucy turns out to be the gf of someone
else. As to be expected. Straight white men do not do well in this show. This
is shaping up to be 99% queer women and Muslims and twitter is going wild.
Some more new characters come and go, but as there are
already two queer women, I naively assumed that all these ones are straight and
failed to concentre very hard, until I remembered that this is Janet King, and this universe has had
space for multiple queers before.
I’m not the only one struggling with plot and all the new
characters. Everyone I follow on twitter has long ago stopped trying. We’re
still processing that bath scene from twenty minutes ago. However, some themes
for the series are clearly emerging: parents and children, and when does doing a
favour for a mate become corruption.
The episode ended with a death, but, as @PBearfiftyfive
pointed out on twitter, at least it wasn’t Bianca!
Frender headcanon: When the Planet Express crew goes out to celebrate, poor oblivious Fry always gets flirted with, without realizing it. While everyone else bets on how fast and how Bender will kill the guy flirting with his boyfriend I mean meatbag
YES !!! Let Bender be jealous of his bff! Allow Him
