Roomie is straight up one of my favorite characters. Her charming attitude is inviting and really entertaining to watch. Which helps when she bounces off of Lillian’s chill ‘do I have to’ vibe. It’s a sort of ‘red/blue’ relationship that I enjoy where it’s a matter of helping the other improve their faults, but not by shaming them. They both give one another their space but don’t really enable the other.
It’s humorous, it’s sexy, it’s cute, it’s just fantastic.
oKAY SO I JUST WANTED TO SAY I FINISHED READING GGAR BOOK 1 AND I JUST LOVED IT AND Y'ALL SHOULD READ IT TOO
×It’s hella gay, therefor fabulous*.☆*
×The art style is just 👌
×Even though lots of boobs, the characters do develop emotionally and that’s just great really
×99% of fangirls/fanboys can relate to Lillian honestly 😂 😂 😂
×It has a storyline :o -gasp- (most comics like this are, like, seperate comics, but this one has a storyline. And a good one!!)
Also I just wanted to give the author, @batlesbo, a shoutout and say KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK 🙋 ✨
Yeah but now I want to talk about hummus......(no seriously, what's the deal? LOL)
OKAY SO. I have nothing against hummus as a food group, right. BUT a very silly mistake on my part has led me to be the biggest joke in all my friend groups. Because I can’t tell what hummus looks like, apparently.
Two years ago I was getting lunch with my friend in one of our school’s dining halls, right? And in the front there was free food samples which really isn’t that weird at my school. My friend went ahead, while I stopped to look at the samples bc free food is free food and why ever turn that down?
Anyway the samples were apple slices and this brown creamy substance for dipping the apple slices in- which I assumed to be hummus since there was no food label. And I really didn’t think anything of it bc I had thought I’d heard about someone eating apples with hummus so okay whatever.
Well. The creamy brown substance was not hummus.
A few minutes later my mouth started to get itchy, I felt hot and had difficulty swallowing. I immediately realized what was the problem and went to my friend.
“Did you try the samples in the front?” I asked her.
“You mean the apples and peanut butter?” she said. “Yeah, why?”
I’M ALLERGIC TO NUTS. OKAY. I was having an allergic reaction- a mild one bc I’m more allergic to other types of nuts than peanut butter- AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE SAYS
She says: “WHY WOULD YOU EVER THINK THAT WAS HUMMUS NO ONE EATS APPLES WITH HUMMUS!!!!! NO ONE!!! ARE YOU GOING TO DIE BC YOU DIDN’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BTWN HUMMUS AND PEANUT BUTTER?!?!?!”
I didn’t die of course but this story has led to numerous jokes ever since. This same friend gave me this card for Valentine’s Day THIS YEAR (TWO YEARS AFTER THIS WHOLE THING HAPPENED):
Here’s just some things you should know if you’re going to her tour (I’ll talk about what I thought of it soon)
1. Stand in the front at your own risk
St Vincent isn’t gonna crowd surf or throw her guitar into the audience like the Digital Witness tour, but if you still wanna be as close as possible, here’s some things to know: The subwoofers never stop and they’re really fucking loud. You can feel the sound waves coming off of the speakers. It was making me breathe weird, and my friend said it threw off his balance. Also for the first part of the show the curtains aren’t fully pulled back, so you might not see Annie for a few songs at the beginning. The show is definitely designed for the people in the back.
2. It’s basically the whole new album
There’s a section at the beginning when the curtains aren’t fully open where Anne plays techno/string quartet versions of her old songs. She plays at least 2 tunes from each album. Then there’s a little break, and she comes back and plays every song from Masseduction with strange visuals playing on a screen behind her. It’s really awesome, more on that in a different post.
3. No band. All backing tracks.
It’s kind of disappointing, but I think disappointment was meant to be part of the experience. I’ll get into that in a different post.
4. No encore.
People stayed for like 20 minutes after the show ended waiting for an encore. When she leaves the stage after singing “this is not the end,” it’s the end.
