It's not wise to be rude to your ride to the airport.

This was around Thanksgiving 2015.

My family gets together at a rural-ish cabin. I had agreed to give my younger sister a ride to the airport on Sunday, since she was on a short break from college. and had important classes and tests to get back to after Thanksgiving. I’d also agreed to lock up the cabin for my parents, since they had to leave on Saturday to get back to pressing work matters.

During the post-dinner bullshitting on Thanksgiving, my sister decided to give me sh*t about the bad couple months I’d had. A long-term girlfriend of mine and I had broken up and the company I worked for folded. This went beyond normal sibling sh*t-flinging, including her saying something to the effect of “Who’d date or hire a worthless failure loser like you anyway, b*tch? Your girlfriend was probably f*cking your boss and dumped you both when she learned you were both failures.”

She was called out on her crude remarks by several family members, but refused to apologize. I seemingly let it slide. I had plenty of emergency funds, had a few job prospects lined up (was hired shortly after and got a nice salary bump, actually) and was okay with being single. Her vehemence was out of left field though, and uncalled for.

Sunday morning, I waited for her in the kitchen with a bottle of Jack Daniels.

“Hey, Heather.” I said when she entered the kitchen. “Wanna apologize for your sh*tty comments the other night?”

she laughed. “About your being a d*ckless failure? Nope. Now let’s get going I have a flight to catch.”

“Fair enough!” I responded, and poured myself a double, then knocked it back.

“What the f*ck are you doing?” she screamed. “*I have a plane to catch!”

“You sure do!” I responded, cheerfully. I paused, and repeated the pour-and-slam. “Well, f*ck, it looks like I’ve had too much to drink to drive! I guess we’ll have to wait until you’re f*cking civil, won’t we?”

She pulled put her phone and screwed with it for a few seconds before I said: “There aren’t any cab companies or ubers around here. I’m your only ride. So you can apologize for being a b*tch, or you can miss your flight.”

“F*ck you!”

I grinned and took another shot.

In short: I got absolutely sh*tfaced, she missed her flight, missed some tests, and her GPA plummeted. It was f*cking hilarious.

WWE Hall Of Famer Mr. Fuji passes away
[August 28th, 2016]

From WWE.com:

WWE is saddened to learn that WWE Hall of Famer Harry Fujiwara, known to WWE fans as Mr. Fuji, passed away this morning at the age of 82.

Fuji spent more than 30 years entertaining fans worldwide as both an in-ring competitor and one of WWE’s greatest managers. A five-time WWE World Tag Team Champion, Fuji was infamous for keeping small bags of salt in his tights which he would throw into his opponents’ eyes.

After retiring from the ring, Fuji managed a litany of WWE’s most feared Superstars, such as George “The Animal” Steele, Kamala, Killer Khan, Demolition, The Powers of Pain, Yokozuna, and most notably, “Magnificent” Don Muraco.

With Muraco, Fuji treated WWE fans to the classic Fuji Vice, Fuji General, Fuji Bandito and Fuji Chan series. These series were ahead of their time because spoofing successful television shows as they tried to break into Hollywood was the epitome of sports-entertainment.

His career will be remembered by different generations for different reasons but Mr. Fuji, whether as a Superstar or manager, is one of the most entertaining performers in the history of WWE.

WWE extends its condolences to Fujiwara’s family, friends and fans.

An actual thing a anti-choicer told me after I informed him that because of a medical condition I have pregnancy could kill me.



“Call me old fashioned but I think these babies deserve a chance at life, even if that means the mother may have to take a chance at her life.”

Translation: “Call me old fashioned because I believe we should go back to the days when dying in childbirth was a normal thing.”

Antis are fucking terrifying. Notice how the word “selfish” in anti-choicer can even mean aborting a pregnancy that could KILL YOU. Oh, and assholes like this one more than likely vote.

So I want to talk about something real quick - when James Potter used Levicorpus on Snape and when Snape called Lily a “mudblood”.

So James and the rest of the Marauders (yet again) go and torment Snape for no apparent reason and then in front of everyone, they hang him upside down and expose his underwear to everybody on the grounds - nice. Totally not sexual harassment or anything (please note the sarcasm).

People are always saying “Snape was so terrible to Lily. He called her a mudblood!” I thought about this - Lily stuck up for Snape. He was her best friend, of course she did. No problem there, but here’s the thing. (Don’t attack me for what I’m about to say. I’m not saying all males, okay?) The Marauders and Snape are male. They have their pride. They don’t want to be seen as weak or, for this situation, seen letting a girl stick up for them. Ever hear in movies “You’re going to let a girl fight your battles for you?”? - that sort of thing. Anyway, so Snape called her a mudblood because he wanted to be seen as tough and able to fight his own battles without letting a girl do it for him. He was humiliated in front of so many people and with Lily defending him at that moment - he may have thought that people would see him as weak and a “loser”, unable to defend himself - possibly less of a man (even though they were only about 15 at the time). So in the heat of the moment he said something he didn’t mean and regretted. I’m not saying that he was right calling her a mudblood, but this explains why he did it.

Also, for the people saying Snape was creepy towards Lily - can we please remember that James said he would only stop bullying Snape if Lily dated him. That’s not creepy - per say, but it’s fucking insane. No normal human being would do something like that. I’m sorry - they just don’t.

And just in case anyone’s wondering - I don’t hate the Marauders. I like the idea of them and all, but I’m not going to sit here and deny that they were shitty kids who did some terrible stuff - unlike a lot of people.

If there’s one pet peeve of mine about the Bleach fandom is the reliance on the HM arc as reinforcing IchiHime. 

I always read it as a deconstruction. When Ichigo obliterated Ulquiorra, went full throttle hollow, he caused damaged to Orihime too. He stabbed Uryuu.

There was nothing good about it. When the villain has to fight you to stop you from destroying everything, including your allies, then the situation is in a deep level of badness.

It was deconstructing Ichigo’s hero-complex, his need to protect everyone, and the ending of this wasn’t good for him. 

Orihime felt awful when this happened because Ichigo was a mindless beast that injured the person he promised to protect, as well as defeating Ulquiorra in a way he wasn’t satisfied with.

She felt guilty. It wasn’t her fault, but it happened as a result of her wanting to be saved, Ichigo wanting to save everyone. 

It’s really my biggest disappointment—well, second disappointment, since this viewpoint of Ichigo was actually pretty awesome to get into. Afterwards, it kinda got dropped in the background. Real shame.

Afterwards, after Ulquiorra turned into dust, who saw his face and thought, “This isn’t the face of a man who has won.”

Rukia.  

They didn’t even have to talk, they didn’t have to convey verbal communication, but she realized, later on, that something was intensely wrong with Ichigo.

As I will always stand by, the connection Orihime managed to bring to life, managed to nourish, was her relationship with Ulquiorra.

She started to understand him. He started to understand something beyond the nothingness he always believed in.

So, why was everyone complaining about Joshaya in this episode?

Josh accidentally hits Maya with the door and immediately goes to help her up once she brings this to his attention.

Josh reminds her that he’s still in it for the long-game but then does nothing else romantic towards Maya so that she doesn’t get the wrong idea.

Josh agrees that he doesn’t want Maya to miss out on anything and doesn’t try to control what she does or who she dates while playing the long-game.

Where exactly is the problem here?
