Mark: Five years ago, JYP said we had to start a recycling program for Earth Day so Jackson took the lead on that and introduced us to a very close friend of his named Recyclops. Jackson(in flashback): Happy Earth Day, everyone. I’m Recyclops. Did you know that an old milk carton can be sawed in half and used as a planter? Mark: The next year he really stepped things up. Jackson(in flashback): Who has put a number seven plastic in a number four bin? Mark: A year after that Recylcops really began to take shape. Jackson(in flashback): Recylops will drown you in your over-watered lawns. Mark: Then tragedy struck Recyclops when his fictional planet was attacked by some other fictitious thing…I can’t remember. Jackson(in flashback): Recyclops will have his revenge.

cade placing small kisses on areas of optimus where he’s been hurt in the past. a kiss on the shoulder for when he lost his arm in dark of the moon, a kiss on the head fin that fell off when they first met, a kiss over the place where quintessa had slapped and marked optimus, a kiss on his hands or fingers for all the battles he’s fought.
a kiss at the center of optimus’s chest, right over where his spark is, for all the hardship that optimus has gone through in his lifetime

What beauty. I saw clouds and their light shadows on the distant dear earth…. The water looked like darkish, slightly gleaming spots…. When I watched the horizon, I saw the abrupt, contrasting transition from the earth’s light-colored surface to the absolutely black sky. I enjoyed the rich color spectrum of the earth. It is surrounded by a light blue aureole that gradually darkens, becoming turquiose, dark blue, violet, and finally coal black.

Five years ago, corporate said we had to start a recycling program for Earth Day, so Dwight took the lead on that, and introduced us to a very close friend of his, named Recyclops. The next year, he really stepped things up. A year after that, Recyclops really began to take shape. Then tragedy struck Recyclops when his fictional planet was attacked by some other fictitious thing, I can’t remember. I think this was also the year that he renounced the Earth Day and vowed to destroy the planet he once loved.
