sally is my favorite!

Always throw salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender for luck. And fall in love, whenever you can.

some fave sally ride facts

hey pals, I just finished reading sally ride: america’s first woman in space, by lynn sherr, and here’s a collection of my fave sally ride facts:

  • her favorite constellation was orion, because you can find it so easily
  • one of her first jobs was babysitting.  she made the kids pb&j sandwiches, but they wouldn’t eat them because “the peanut butter was on the wrong side of the bread.”  sally threw out the sandwiches and never babysat again.
  • she stopped drinking coors beer when she found out joseph coors had opposed the equal rights amendment 
  • she told the u.s. ambassador to norway that his rape joke wasn’t funny
  • exxonmobil gave millions of dollars to her “sally ride science” teacher training academies.  it was a business compromise between an oil company and an environmentally proactive nonprofit, and during each keynote speech, sally would make a comment about “oil spills” or “oily money” and glance over at the exxonmobil rep before moving on.
  • she had a border collie when she was a kid, and two bichon frises with her partner, tam.
  • watching barefoot contessa was a daily ritual, and she loved ina garten’s meatloaf
  • when her relationship with tam started getting serious, tam asked “is this forever?” and sally responded “I can’t think more than five years ahead.”  so every five years, tam would ask her “are we renewing?” they ended up being together for 27 years. when she was dying of cancer, sally told tam “I wish I had another 27 years with you.”

Okay so I know Apriltello Day was over like two hours ago but I had this idea in my head and I just had to draw it. It’s so messy and I painted the background WAY too quickly but oh well…

I just really wanted to draw April and Donnie in a scene from my favorite romantic movie “When Harry Met Sally” (Drawing April in Meg Ryan’s 80s clothing was so much fun!)

Also I’m setting this in @theherocomplex’s “High as the Moon” AU verse where the Hamato Clan has become accepted by humanity and April and Donnie end up meeting in college. Because that AU is the best and everyone should read her fanfic about it!

So yeah, classes are over for the day so April and Donnie decided to get coffee and take a stroll through central park. Oh and I couldn’t resist sneaking in an argyle pattern on Donnie’s sweater vest ;)

My favorite Archie Sonic moments

Saw some other people doing it, so now I wanna share my favorite moments from my favorite comic book.

Sonic running up and hugging Sally as he tears up because he loves her and knows she’s safe.

This scene that pays homage to The Killing Joke, and did it better!

The fight between Metal Sonic and Shard

Shadow giving this little speech

I love this scene so much I made a whole post about it

Naugus using his power to spread fear throughout the concert

The fight between Knuckles and Shadow

I love Scourge so much and he has so many cool moments. Like Super Scourge, conquering his entire planet, etc. But his escape from prison is easilly my favorite

Here’s another scene I made a separate post on. Absolutely heartbreaking and I love it

And finally, Sonic’s monologue after out-smarting Scourge. It’s such a great hero speech and I never tire of reading this scene

When your whole life is hectic pretty much 90% of the time, it’s important to really relax in the quieter moments


Sally and Cinnamon Cake relaxing out in the fields of Jorvik, while there’s peace for once. While Sally enjoys her usual story books, Cinnamon gets a soothing lil belly rub.
