“You can talk to me about anything, man. Grab a seat.” Xigbar motions to the free cushions of the couch he’s sitting on, before resting hands in his lap.
“So….what’s troubling ya?”
‘ You can talk to me about anything, man. ‘
This was maybe a bad IDEA - it wasn’t as if he was certain why he was even doing this. What made him think this would do anything for him? He’s gotten use to it - having everything be on his shoulder and KNOWING he doesn’t have anyone there for him.
( Spent a good while learning that fact. )
But here he stands - a half lidded eye glancing over in direction of the free cushions. A sigh parts from his lips - least before he shifts over and takes a spot on the couch
— putting [ distance ] between himself and the other him.
Nonchalantly he traces a hand over his cheek, trailing fingers over his scar. Before he leans his head against his head. ( It’s - it’s not as if he could really talk about all of it… What could he even say about it?What would he even say if he knew?)
I’m a software developer. I’m the only woman developer on the team. A coworker today sent an email “to all the developers” about a bug he had found. I was not included in the email.
My retribution: no one responded to the email. So my boss came into the room, came up to me and asked if anyone was looking into it. I had no idea what he was talking about (since I’d never gotten the email). A few minutes of thrashing later and the email is forwarded to me, and my boss very disgruntledly says, “I don’t know why she wasn’t included, she’s the one who would have actually done something about it,” before walking away.
I let Birdie “personalize” the Christmas cards were sending out. Took. Fucking. Forever. 82 cards so far. And I haven’t even gotten to Adams coworkers yet. Speaking of Adam. I got his stocking stuffers today. World Market has the best little random shit for that! And I got him a few pairs of ‘different designs’ Vans socks that he can wear with his Dickie shorts and Vans and look like a little skater boy. I have no idea what else to get him. I got him a capo for his acoustic guitar, but he was having a hard day at work the other day, so I gave it to him early to cheer him up. Totally worked! I Know he wants some sort of peddle for his guitars and bass but I have no idea what the Hell he’s talking about when he’s taking about them. Something called a looper. I don’t know. I did see somewhere online, a guitar pic that you can get engraved. I was thinking about getting him that and have it be from Birdie. I’m burnt on turkey so I’m thinking about cooking duck for Christmas dinner this year.
Imagine Jack running into Beyoncé at the airport, prolly in the VIP waiting area and at first he doesn’t realise she’s there because he’s very into his book, but when he does he’s torn because obviously he understands she might not want to be bothered but on the other hand Bitty might marry him just so that he can divorce him for wasting this opportunity.
Then he has an idea. The best idea.
Fast forward to a year later.
“Hey Bits, you need to see something.”
“What is it hon?”
“Just sit here and press play.”
Video starts playing. Beyoncé is talking.
“Hey Bitty, Jack has been telling me a lot about you in the past ten minutes and I have to say, I think you got a keeper! He mentioned this song was part of a very special moment for you both, so let’s keep the tradition going!”
*Beyoncé starts signing Halo*
Camera moves to a nervously grinning Jack.
“Hey Bits, I hope you forgive me for not telling you who I met at the airport straight away…”
*signing in the background is interrupted by Beyoncé laughing but quickly resumes*
“I know we have only been dating for a few months, but from the moment we kissed I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you, and I hope you feel the same. So…”
Jack shows a napkin to the camera that’s says, “Yo Marry Me Eric Bittle” on it.
“Say Yes Bitty!” Beyoncé whispers in the background.
And that’s how Bitty gets the best proposal of all times and receives a napkin signed by Beyoncé instead of a ring.
(For the record he does get a ring, but we all know which one he went for when Jack got on one knee to ask the question in person.)
(Jack will always jokingly say that he knew Bitty would never go against Beyoncé, so he was making absolutely sure his proposal was be bullet proof.)
While Ted Bundy was dating Elizabeth Kloepfer, he got in touch with one of his ex girlfriends behind her back.The same girl had rejected him years before after he was deeply in love with her and, according to many psychologists, this rejection is one of the reasons Bundy harboured so much hatred toward women. All his victims resembled her, having long brunette hair parted down the middle. One day, she phoned Bundy and asked him why he had been ignoring her for so long. He replied with “I’m sorry Stephanie, I have no idea what you’re talking about.” and the two of them never spoke again. The killer later admitted that he had only got back in touch with Stephanie Brooks to show her how rejection felt. This type of extreme social manipulation was an early warning sign that Bundy had no empathy and was a true sociopath.
Ok so Dan’s new video.. first of all, he is already out as Bi..and has been for years so why are you getting hysterial about him ‘coming out’ when he already is, and secondly do you have any idea just how much money Dan has? He is very very well off, and if he wants to spend 1p or £5k on a piece of clothing its up to him so stop judging him and let him spend what ever he wants and finally he has said his parents travelled a lot when he was younger and that could be why he spent a lot of time with his grandparents.. but it does not mean they replaced them, he just doesn’t want to talk about them, and why should he? it doesn’t mean he isn’t close to them just that he doesn’t want us to know about them..
My apologies for the quality of of the first few images (I had to combine them to have room for everything…although I guess I could try playing around with my method).
Anyway, in addition to Katara kind of being a Book 1 Zuko in “The Southern Raiders,” the episode itself plays out like the “Avatar state” in regards to its main plotline concerning Aang and Katara. Furthermore, we get some neat Aang/Katara interactions which end up mirroring each other.
Both episodes start out with someone offering a means to an end. General Fong offers to help Aang figure out how to get into the Avatar state, and Zuko tells Katara that he can help her find the man who killed her mother.
In “The Avatar State,” Katara tries to dissuade Aang from listening to Fong. In “The Southern Raiders,” Aang tries to keep Katara from following through with her plan to confront Yon Rha. In both cases, neither Aang nor Katara think the other understands why they have to go through with their actions.
Both see the other still plans to go through with their plans, but Katara and Aang react differently. Katara simply tells Aang that she won’t watch Aang go through with Fong’s plans because she doesn’t want to see Aang suffer any longer. Likewise, Aang sees that Katara still plans on going through her plan and says that she need to do this for herself if for no other reason than to find a sense of closure.
In the end, both Katara and Aang are consumed by rage in one way or another. Aang through his anger induced Avatar State and Katara through her rage of meeting her mother’s killer. Roku gets Aang out of the Avatar State, and Katara finds that she can’t kill Yon Rha and she doesn’t know exactly why–or, at least, not yet.
In TAS, Aang apologizes to Katara for not listening to her. In TSR, he assures Katara that she did the right thing. With TSR, we get the added benefit of Katara forgiving Zuko.
Donald Trump just said the US should consider “closing up” the internet to curb radical extremism. Trump, a man that routinely claims everyone in charge of the US is stupid, believes that as president he could just call up Bill Gates to help him shut off the internet. Trump floated the idea at a campaign rally at USS Yorktown in South Carolina tonight as a way to stop Islamic State jihadists from recruiting Americans to commit acts of domestic terrorism. The idea is so dumb it almost has us, too, at a loss for words.
“We’re losing a lot of people because of the internet,” Trump said. “We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.”
Listen, I just really need to know how Magnus deals when his and Alec’s kids inevitably start reading Harry Potter. “Daddy, why don’t you have a wand?” “Daddy, you’re really cool but…I wanna be Hermione when I grow up.” “Daddy, why can’t you make chocolate come to life too, you’re so LAME.”
Meanwhile, Alec has absolutely no idea Magnus is talking about books when he tells their seven year old son, “No Voldemort can’t hurt you, buttercup, don’t worry” and immediately alerts the clave because clearly his family is IN DANGER and “WHAT do we know about this…Voldemort, exactly?”
Magnus hates those goddamn books but he’ll never delete the text message Alec sends him asking him if he knows any famous warlocks called Harry because “apparently we’re going to need his help”.
“What was it about the Newmans’ marriage that made it last so long? How do they make it work?
‘I have no idea,’ Woodward replied, seeming utterly stumped. 'Absolutely not one single idea on the subject. Probably sheer luck, wouldn’t you say?’ She squeezed her husband’s knee. 'Darling, say something. You have a different notion - I would say that.’
'I’m never comfortable talking about these things, because they’re nobody’s business,’ he said.
'Sheer luck. Luck! That’s what it is,’ Woodward repeated, ignoring her husband’s unresponsiveness.”
Lucy had a stillbirth (8th month– which is critical to mothers for birth) and Natsu was blaming himself for what happened. He wished he was more keen in taking care of Lucy. He was depressed and so busy imagining the ‘what-if’s’ for such a long time that he forgot about other people, even Lucy.
One day, Lucy had enough and decided to talk to him. And when she talked, he was furious about the behavior of the blonde. She was acting like normal– like their baby hadn’t died. So he snapped. He snapped not because he was angry at his wife but because he was mad at himself. He felt so frustrated because Lucy was supposed to be the one suffering the most yet she’s the one comforting him. He thought it was unfair. That he was selfish. And finally, Lucy broke down and told Natsu that she didn’t want him to disappear by being so self-loathing and distant to her. She told him that she needed him to bring back the shattered pieces as a whole again.
In they end, they understood each other and vowed to be better someday but not by forgetting about their first son.
After all, they’re invincible when they’re together.
I don’t want to write about this. I’ll try to keep it short. My doctor suggested I put it down on paper, though, so he can have a better idea of how everything happened. He’d never seen such a thing in his 30 years of practicing medicine and he actually wants to talk about my case at an ENT conference next summer. So why am I posting the story here? Because if I have to suffer through writing it, you might as well suffer through reading it. Yeah, I’m a prick.
I’d always been an avid outdoorsman. Hiking was my thing. After my divorce, I did what I thought I had to do: quit my job and hike the whole Appalachian Trail. You know how your coaches always used to say “walk it off” after a bad hit? Well, after being sodomized by the vicious cock of alimony, I needed the longest walk I could think of. So off I went.
Okay guys so here’s the deal. When I spoke to Bryan he talked about the rights to Hannibal (which I am allowed to share with you). He said that they have to wait two years from the last air date until Martha gets the rights back and then they are going to go to MGM.. Not sure if that means MGM has already shown interest or if they’re gonna just be talking about it..
What I can’t tell you are the details he told me about season 4, 5 and 6. Because yes, he told me about a vague idea of what he has planned, but I’m sworn to secrecy, so I’m keeping my mouth shut. But for all of you out there: I’m really happy with what he said. Take from that what you will.
