the met pets

On July 15th 1984, Kari Swenson, a highly successful US Biathlete, was abducted by father-and-son pair Don and Dan Nichols. The Nichols’ were survivalists who had planned to make Swenson the son’s bride in order to start a cult in the mountains.

After Kari failed to return home, a search party was sent out to look for her. Dozens of locals, along with family and friends spent hours combing through the woods of Big Sky, Montana, where they knew Kari had been cross-country training earlier in the day. Eventually a member of the party, Alan Goldstein, a friend of Swenson’s, stumbled onto the Nichols’ camp and was fatally shot by Don. In a state of panic, Dan Nichols slipped and his gun accidentally fired, shooting Kari in the abdomen. She miraculously survived. The duo fled, leaving Swenson chained to a tree. She sat alone with her dead friend for over four hours until she was found by rescuers.

Her surviving such a horrific injury is certainly amazing, but even more so is the fact that she went on to compete in the Women’s Biathlon World Championships in Chamonix, France. Despite having only 80% lung capacity, Swenson led the U.S. Team to win a bronze medal. Nowadays, Keri works as a veterinarian in Bozeman, Montana.

Don’t pick up cats that you’ve just met! They could be the friendliest cat in the world and still feel uncomfortable being picked up by a stranger.

Like imagine if a human you didn’t know came into your house, smiled, and then picked you up? Now imagine that human being 10 times your size. It’s just not something you want to have happen. 

So don’t do it to kitties until they’re comfortable with you. Even then, some will never be comfortable being picked up so proceed with caution.

Otayuri week 2017

DAY 2: Social Media or Celebration (online relationship headcanons)

  • I am 100% sure their relationship is build on social media and online relations, because they’re almost always so far away from each other. 
  • But everyone would be like “Yeah, sure, because they’re not 24/7 in contact”
  • They’re on messenger all the time.
  • They’re definitely sending each other snapchats all the time. Otabek would be the “I see something, I take a picture of it” guy, so Yuri would see every road Otabek goes, every new pet met and every place he’s in.
    Yuri would be the “Look at my face and how bored am I” guy, 100 selcas every day, with small breaks of Vikturi photo with snarky remark.
  • Yuri sending every cat related video/post for Otabek immidiately. He would get same in return, because Otabek would do everything to make him happy.
  • Skype calls every evening. Just to hang out, not even talking too much. 
  • When Yuri misses Otabek too much, he calls him in the night just to hear his breath and voice. They definitely pay too much for their phones, but well
  • Of course, they would do videos of his new routines/jumps, sending them immidiately, just to know if other person would like it.
  • Every morning (for him, of course), Otabek would send Yuri photo of sunset, or sky, or a flower, something beautiful, with “I wish you could see this with me, good morning”, or “May your day would be so beautiful like you and this flower” (SORRY BUT I THINK OTABEK WOULD BE KINDA ROMANTIC SHIT AND YURI WOULD ALWAYS LAUGH AT HIM BUT LIKE IT ANYWAY)
  • Yuri would be the one sending his photos late at night, sleepy, in his bed, with “You should be here”
  • I STRONGLY BELIEVE ONE OF THEM WOULD ONCE WRITE “I LOVE YOU, MAN” ON FACEBOOK (YES IT WOULD BE YURI) AND IT WILL BE THE FIRST TIME THEY SAY THIS.
  • But Otabek would immidiately write back “I love you too, Yura”
  • Yuri would have tons of photos from their meetings on his Instagram for world to see, because he doesn’t care.
  • They would have photos of each other as backgrounds on their phones. 

I maintain that there is nothing better than a friendly cat approaching you and asking for pets on the street.

Just like, this little guy was hanging out, saw you, and decided he wanted to be friends, and politely came over to ask for some affection.

It’s SO GOOD and it just makes me feel all warm and happy inside.

sarellathesandsnake  asked:

May I ask why you don't take pets anymore for the birthday unending? Is it because people want to enter their dead pet friends and it gets overwhelmingly sad? Or were there just too many people entering pets?

Well, first, because everything about the Birthday Unending is entirely at my whim, and if I want to say I delete anything received on a Tuesday, that is my call and no one can stop me.  I didn’t sign a contract, I don’t get paid, I get to set any rules I want to.

Second, and more important…I asked, repeatedly, that people please think long and hard before sending in requests for pets.  They’re hard on me.  They’re hard on everyone.  The Birthday can be surprisingly emotionally cathartic for a surrealist nightmare with cake, but writing about a dead cat or dog is a lot more difficult for me, as a human being, than writing about a person I’ve never met.  Pets are more universal.  We’re socialized to cry over every dead animal we encounter, except the ones we’re eating.

I didn’t want to say “absolutely no pets.”  I wanted to be able to keep admitting your eighteen year old dog who just passed and left you gutted.  I did.  But every time I answer an Ask about an animal, I get ten more animal Asks, no matter how much I say “please remember this is hard for me, please remember that you’re asking me to grieve your pet in public, please remember that I have said all are welcome, and really ask yourself if you need the performance,” every time I get five to ten more animal Asks.  And some of them are clearly people taking the piss–”oh my goldfish died can he come in”–but I have to take them all seriously, because that is how the performance works.

So for my own peace of mind, no more pets.  The ones already in the queue will be answered, any coming in after this will be refused.

anonymous asked:

Hey there! What social media app do you think the boys would be most active on?

(Good request. 11/10)

Tetsurō Kuroo:

  • You can find Kuroo on most used socialization apps. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, you name it, he’s got it. He is pretty popular on Twitter with his sassy remarks to famous people’s bullshit though.
  • His accounts are linked, so when he posts something, it will immediately be shared everywhere. He’s the guy who spams group chats with bad memes and terrible jokes at 3 am in the morning and annoys everyone.

Nobuyuki Kai: 

  • Kai does not care very much for social media. He’s the type of person that keeps in touch with others through phone calls and messages, rather than social apps. He finds it easier to keep in touch for some reason.
  • He does have a Facebook account and has been added to different group chats, like his class’ one and the one for his team, but he rarely checks them due to the mass spams of memes and messages.

Morisuke Yaku:

  • Yaku also is not the biggest fans of the large variety of social apps that have appeared on the market, but just as well uses Facebook to keep in touch with family, friends and others.
  • He usually posts pictures from his holidays or selfies with the team, but he doesn’t stress to be very active. He’s a third year and needs to prepare both for volley matches and University exams.

Taketora Yamamoto:

  • He posts frequently on Instagram, but it’s such a pure and wholesome content? Like, pictures of his cats, or the sunset on a partially cloudy day, or his mother’s carnations. 
  • Yamamoto also uses Snapchat a lot and all of his snaps are funny or silly,. It’s his main app with which he keeps in touch with his bros, Nishinoya and Tanaka. He might have also used Tinder in the past.

Kenma Kozume:

  • Kenma is not one for socializing too much, so he spends a lot of time on Tumblr where he doesn’t have to worry too much on what people’s opinions are about his blog, which involves video games mostly.
  • He also lurks on different reddit forums and gets himself some nice spoilers on games and series, but he’s just as well ready to roast someone who does not do justice to his fave characters.

Shōhei Fukunaga:

  • I feel like Fukunaga also spends a lot of his free time on Tumblr. His memes are always on point and up to date, so are his jokes and puns. He runs an entire pun blog and he’s proud of it.
  • He also uses Facebook to be up to date with how his friends are doing and to also leave short yet sweet and encouraging messages on people’s achievements. He’s got a small number of friends.

Sō Inuoka:

  • Inu is pretty active on Facebook. He ticks his location when he goes out with friends, he always gets tagged in pictures and he shares a lot of posts on his wall which he finds interesting or funny. He’s also part of quite some groups.
  • Him and Shibayama have a lot of fires on Snapchat and they can’t even conceive of losing their strike. 130 days is not something to break. He posts from time to time on Insta as well.

Lev Haiba:

  • Lev has an Instagram account he has dedicated to his photography work. Besides the breathtaking landscapes and close ups of random plants, you can sometimes find blurry pics of fellow teammates or cats. He had a deviantArt at some point.
  • He used to scroll on 9gag and 4chan a lot, but those were some dark days. Now, mostly, he gets his dose of laughter and information from his Facebook feed or Tumblr.

Yuki Shibayama:

  • Tumblr is mostly in his comfort zone, but Shibayama can sometimes get lost in the multitude of interesting links reddit has to offer. The No Sleep stories have kept him up and meditating a lot.
  • The Spanchat streak is real! He also updates his story on Snap from time to time with trivial things and pets he’s met, but he never expected so many people to actually be interested in it.
Songfic: A thousand years

A/N: I’m sorry if this sucks. Really sorry.

Prompt:  For the songfics could you do 104 A Thousand Years by Christina Perri? Oh my gosh, that’s honestly one of my favorite songs, I’m so glad it was on the list. And for the fic could you make it fluffy please? Thank you! ☺️

Warinings: pregnancy, fluff, idiot Chris haha!

——–

I exhale while I looked at him. He was so damn handsome. Even with that worry look in his face. Those sweet blue sky eyes… and the frown above them.

“So… what is it, babe?” Chris held my hands and kissed my knuckles.

“Chris, I… we…” I changed the direction of my life-changing speech “have only dated for a few months, we’ve had wonderful times together, I love you” I smiled, knowing that tears were close, really close to make their spectacular entrance.

“I love you too.” That’s the only thing he said “I think you knew that and I know that you love me, but I sense that there’s something else” I nodded and looked in my bag. I handed him a sonogram.

“I’m pregnant. I know that this wasn’t planned. I just found out and I’m terrified. Chris, please say something”. And out of the blues, I felt like… shit. He dropped my hand and ran his fingers through her barely-growing hair.

“Chris?” I insisted. He didn’t respond. I sighed. “Alright, then. I can’t imagine what you’re thinking, but when your girlfriend tells you she’s pregnant, you have to say something.” I stood up and made my way out of his place.

———

Chris didn’t stop me when I left. That made me so angry and sad. And angry again. It was a rollercoaster. I imagined that the news would turned out different. I hope it’d end differently. Now, he had been calling like crazy, but I wasn’t ready to face another rejection. Not for me, not to our baby.

I had told him that I was scared to death and he just stood there.

I felt so stupid for picturing the moment I told him in a totally different context. Him picking me up, making me spinning around. And I didn’t get a fucking word. I sighed looking at the photo on my desk. It was from our very first date. We had met on set. As a writer I got the chance to talk with the actors when they had questions about the script. And he had a lot of questions. Like, “would you like to go on a date with me?” and I said couldn’t even speak. I nodded.

Our date night was a mess. I was so late with the delivery of work that I forgot to call him to cancel. When I actually called him, he was outside of my house. I apologized over and over again. He just laughed and asked me to wait there. He picked me up in the office, took me to set. He had arranged everything. Someone was waiting for me with wardrobe and makeup. When I was ready. He had projected a night landscape on screen, the lights were almost off, making the atmosphere romantic and… special. Somehow, I knew that anything was going to be the same ever again. I had met the man of my life.

“Ok, tell something you’re embarrassed of?” he asked while he served another glass of wine.

“Are you for real? This is the first date I should impress you, not telling my weakness” I laughed and he looked at me, those penetrating and curious blue eyes were wondering in my being. It made me nervous. “What? Do I have something on my teeth?” I ran my tongue around my teeth and he just sighed. He didn’t lose his smile. Fuck. What was with him?

“No”

“Then?” I inquired.

“For the record I was already impressed before this date took place. Looking at you running on set, answering my questions patiently, I was impressed by you agreeing on this date. I just… I’m impressed by you. And I just pictured that I’ll find that out your embarrassing moments later, maybe in weeks, months or years. We’re going to know each other for a long time, y/n. I can’t wait to know you. Because to be honest, I want to.” I didn’t know what to say. To be honest, that was a speech. A breathtaking, beautiful and chilling speech. I bit my lips.

“I can’t dance” I murmured. He smiled “That’s something you should know. I… want to dance, but I just can’t.” he grabbed my hand and kissed my knuckles. And that was how all began.

It’s corny and that’s what most girls would probably say after the first date with Capitan America. But I didn’t meet that facet of him. I met the pet lover and the sweet, funny Boston guy… where was him when I told him that there was a little person made by US growing inside me?

I guess that’s why my hopes were up. And amazing beginning, an unrealistic almost a fairytale story. But was it close to finish?

“Y/n? Do you have a moment?” my boss asked I nodded and he told me to go to the set. I put my ID and went down. The lights dimmed as I walked in. there was the same night landscape Chris and I saw in our first date. I looked behind and the doors was closed.

The spotlight made a way I started to follow. Flowers and candles everywhere. There was a shadow. I felt my heart racing I knew who it belonged to. Instinctively, my hand traveled to my not showing belly.

“What’s this?” I asked. He leaned and grabbed my hands, approaching me to his athletic body. He was using dark jeans and a dark gray sweater. I arched my eyebrow.

“I’m getting one step closer” I took my distance and put my arms around me.

“Chris… I don’t understand” I murmured. I saw the corners of his mouth getting up.

“Would you like to dance with me?” I look somewhere else as an ironic comeback. He knew that my abilities for dancing were closer to the floor than actually moving my feet. He didn’t let me answer, he grabbed me and started to smoothly dance. He, unlike me, knew how. His strong body guided my clumsy body.

“There’s no music” I tried to take a step back but he didn’t allow me to. It started a sweet melody by piano and violin. But it wasn’t from a record. I looked around and there was a band. “Chris?”

“A few years ago, I was the sexiest man alive. You know? Right now I’m only the stupidest man alive. I let the love of my life walk away from me with our baby.”

“Wait, what?” I inquired, this time, I took my distance. He was standing in front of me, he looked different. What did I miss?

“I love you. I loved you since the very first time I saw you running here, literally. I knew that you were the woman I needed to meet. That I needed to love. I have loved you since then and then I actually loved you and here we are. When we met, I asked you what embarrassed you the most. The thing I’m most embarrassed is letting you go, but” and suddenly, he knelt “I loved you. I love you, and I will always love you. I’m sorry I reacted that way, I’ll make it up to you and our baby. But right now, I just want you to know, that you’re not alone in this, y/n. I don’t have any doubts, when I look at you, everything disappear. Just, don’t be afraid, I’m not leaving you again. Let me love you forever, be my wife. y/n, will you marry me?” he opened a little red box. There was a ring on it. I was already crying.  

“Yes” I answered. “Yes, yes, and yes!” he stood up smiling and slid the ring on my finger.

“I’m so sorry, baby” I cried while he hugged me. He kissed me and knelt again. “Hi, baby, this is daddy. I just wanted you to know that I’ve loved you for a thousand years, and I’ll love you for a thousand more. Just like I love your mommy even when she’s the worst dancer ever.”

thewalrus9  asked:

You posted about a wolfdog earlier, what do you think about people keeping them as pets? I've met several that were abandoned by owners who couldn't deal with them, but one of my friends is thinking of getting one.

They do not make good pets for 99% of people, and they do not make good pets in the traditional sense of pets. They require management more like an exotic or wild animal and are very much not behaviorally like domestic dogs. As a general rule I don’t think people should get them because the number of people for whom it’s a functional option is so low.
