Girls Trip’ has officially made history.

The comedy is now the first film written, produced, directed, and starring an all-Black cast to make $100 million at the box office.

via Page Six:

The popular summer movie — produced by Will Packer, directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and starring Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Tiffany Haddish — made $100.1 million domestically and $109.9 worldwide.

“Girl’s Trip” made six times its $19 million production budget since its July 21 release.

The commendable chick flick follows the misadventures of four college friends — aptly named the Flossy Posse — who travel to Essence Fest in New Orleans and have the time of their lives.

The heart-warming, knee-slapping film is among the highest grossing movies starring black actresses, behind “Sister Act” ($142 million in 1992) and “Hidden Figures” ($169 million in 2016).

This is the last of the sweets-related villagers that I have planned, and oh boy is she is a cutie. Étoile set a really high bar for adorable sheep villagers, but I think that my cotton-candy colored sheep Flossie definitely holds her own. I tried to give her a coat a sparkly look as if she was covered in sugar crystals. I absolutely love her!

It seems that I have now created enough sweets/dessert-related villagers to fill a whole town, so I thought I’d showcase them all in one delectable post! From top to bottom; Crackers the frosted cub, Pepper the peppermint penguin, Ginger the gingerbread elephant, Suzie the strawberries ‘n’ cream wolf, Honeybun the cinnamon bun squirrel, Treacle the donut squirrel, Chip the mint chocolate chip dog, Tootsie the lollipop koala, Flossy the cotton candy sheep, and Confetti the ice cream unicorn.

Dr. Flug Headcanons:

  • He has vitiligo, and is hereditary in Flug’s case.
  • Scars are littered across his body. After all the things I can assume that have happened during his employment at Black Hat Inc, he is bound to have them. 
  • FTM Flug.
  • I remember reading in a post somewhere that Flug’s name means flight in German and Slys (crash) in Icelandic (correct me if I’m wrong, please). Connect this with Flug being multilingual in Spanish, English, and German, I present you biracial Flug (German and Mexican!).
  • His favourite colour is yellow.
  • Flug absolutely adores all models of planes and aircraft’s. He can name many models from different eras, including their history. Black Hat finds this information useless, but Flug could care less.
  • This one is more of a fact (and canon by Alan Turiel): Flug has received his driver’s and pilot’s license.
  • Black Hat takes advantage of this and has promoted Flug to his chauffeur and personal pilot.
  • Flug probably has a pet he keeps in the lab. (I headcanon a ferret named Flossie.)

More headcanons to come!

Hansol liked to skateboard to work every morning. He took the same route each day, starting from the smooth tile outside his apartment and ending at the glass doors belonging to the town’s diner. He never had an answer as to why his skateboard came with him everywhere. Pictures taken from last year’s Halloween party presented Hansol lousily wrapped in toilet paper, his costume being the ever so original mummy that at least six other people at the party had certainly not been wearing. Hansol liked to claim his costume came out different. He was a skateboarding mummy.

On his best friend’s birthday he had one arm resting thoughtfully around his shoulders, tiny splotches of buttercream frosting across their noses and hardly sticking to their foreheads. Hansol’s skateboard must have also been treated as an equal member to the night for along the black surface were more frosting smears, the board held tightly in Hansol’s other hand. Even when his younger sister fell from the monkey bars and sprained her wrist, pictures taken of her recovery in the hospital room had snippets of Hansol smiling, skateboard sitting in his lap.

Seeing Hansol without his skateboard was like seeing butterflies without wings. A peculiar sight indeed if someone ever managed to glean across it. In fact, something Hansol liked to glean across more than his skateboard, was you.

Flossie Wong-Staal (b. 1947) is the virologist and molecular biologist who was the first to clone HIV and determine the function of its genes. This was a major step in confirming that HIV is the cause of AIDS.

Born in China, she moved to the United States at 18 to study at UCLA, where she eventually earned a PhD in molecular biology. She went on to do research work at the National Cancer Institute, and in 1985 she completed a mapping of the HIV virus which made it possible to develop tests for it. In 1994 she became the chairman of the newly-founded Center for AIDS Research at the University of California, San Diego.
