the office (1)

  • Camila: Bros before hos.
  • Camila: Why? Because your bros are always there for you. They have got your back after your ho rips your heart out for no good reason.
  • Camila: And you are nothing but great to your ho, and you told her that she was the only ho for you, and that she was better than all the other hos in the world.
  • Camila: And then... [choking up] Then suddenly she's not your ho, no mo'.

Today is #NationalScavengerHuntDay! We at gishwheswould be remiss if we didn’t celebrate this revered holiday, so we’ve concocted a bit of diabolical fun.

Get ready, Gishers… time for a #gishwhes NATIONAL SCAVENGER HUNT DAY MINIHUNT!

RULES:
1. Post your submissions on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or Facebook*, tagged #gishwhes & #NationalScavengerHuntDay.
2. You have until 11:59 PM PDT May 27 to submit your Items.
3. No photoshopping (unless we’ve explicitly told you to Photoshop.)
4. Anyone can play. You don’t have to be registered for gishwhes to participate. (Though we recommend it for a better life, stronger nails, and a shinier complexion.)
5. Yes, there will be prizes!

*Please make sure your posts are publicly visible so we can find your precious works of remarkability.

ITEM LIST:

1. IMAGE: Office Art 2: The Revenge. They say the sequel is never as good as the original. Grab your highlighters & paperclips and prove them wrong! Take time out of your busy work (or school) day to create a beautiful, museum-worthy sculpture or mixed-media art piece in your cubic comprised entirely of office supplies. All items submitted must include a yellow didactic panel with the name of the piece & artist’s intent.

2. VIDEO: Boxing Video. We’ve all seen Unboxing videos on the Internet, right? Let’s reverse the trend with Boxing Videos! Pack a box with either shelf-stable dry goods or donations for your local food bank or homeless shelter, explaining each item as you go. However, there’s one catch: As you fill your box, everything you do must appear as though you were running an unboxing video backwards - backwards speech, backwards movements… you get the idea. At the end, it’s time to move forward… to your local shelter or food bank to donate the goods!

3. VIDEO: As all Gishers know, Medieval Knights were often depicted battling snails and nobody knows why… except you. YOU know. Show us a historical re-enactment that adequately explains this centuries-old rivalry.

4. VIDEO: A serious dramatic reading of an excerpt of “Streetcar Named Desire”, “Long Day’s Journey into Night” or “Death of A Salesman” … as performed by “chin face” thespians.

5. IMAGE/VIDEO: What do dogs dream of? Show us what happened in your pet’s REM cycle last night.

BONUS ITEM:

6. VIDEO: A YouTube “Get Ready with Me” video, but instead of a girl, it features a long haired dog. We want to see it all… Waking up, breakfast, the whole glam routine— complete with first-person voiceover from the dog’s perspective.

All right Gishers… GO!

Marawi Siege update (from what I’ve heard in the news):

  • 42 teachers that were held hostage have been rescued by government troops.
  • No news yet about the status of the priest and other civilian parishioners (2 of which were students) who were taken from St. Mary Church.
  • A teacher from Mindanao State University has also been held hostage.
  • The spreading news about the 3 beheaded teachers also remained unconfirmed.
  • Marawi residents are now being evacuated from the area.
  • Whole Mindanao is under Martial Law for 60 days.
  • 2 soldiers and 1 police officer were killed and 12 more are wounded from Marawi clash (please pray for them and their families). 
  • Davao is no longer on lockdown but is under “hold-and-secure-situation”. 
  • Metro Manila is now on full alert as well. 
  • Marawi City Jail, St. Mary’s Church, Ninoy Aquino School and Dansalan College were all burned down by the militants
  • 107 inmates were freed from the City Jail.

 Additional note: Marawi was NOT attacked by ISIS but by local terrorist groups Maute and Abu Sayyaf. Maute group is known supporter of ISIS but no confirmed direct link with the ISIS. 

Lastly, to everyone in Marawi City and the whole Mindanao. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Be strong. Be safe.

I am So Done with these criticisms I keep seeing like “It was good and all but Diego Luna didn’t work for me casting-wise, he was too wiry and soft-spoken, not action-movie enough” and I’m like??? SPY???? That’s the point???? Honestly people need to stop forcing the Hypermasculine Jason Statham Aesthetic bullshit irrelevantly onto characters that bear literally no comparison.

I’m still deeply entertained by Cassian’s jackets wrt that panel where Diego Luna insists that Cassian has the best costume in the movie because it’s suitable for all circumstances.

Like… I assumed he meant a versatile coat or something??

No. Cassian’s costume is suitable for all weather conditions because he literally packs an entire wardrobe.

McGonagall’s Office Pt 1: Dirty Dancers.

Remus- “Dirty Dancing?”

McGonagall- “Yes. Do you know why I called you two here and not any others?”

McGonagall- “Whatever the two of you do, others will follow. I can not have students getting too close while dancing..”

Sirius- “What would be too close?”

Sirius- “Is this too close?”

Remus- “What about this?”

Remus- “So..If we were dancing..Sirius be the girl.”

Remus- “Okay.”

Remus- “Would this be too close?”

Remus- “What if he were to bend over?”

Sirius- “And I was just tying my shoe?”

Sirius- “And he was stretching.”

Remus- “I’m just stretching.”

McGonagall- “Okay, I think you two are getting off task here..”

Sirius- “Okay what about if we were dancing.”

Sirius- “Is this too close?”

Remus- “Is this too close?”

Remus- “This is soo appropriate right now.”

Sirius- “And now we pose for a picture.”

Remus- “What about this? Is this okay?”

Sirius- “I am literally touching his butt right now.”

Remus- “He’s touching my butt.”

Sirius- “See? And you didn’t see that did you?!

Remus- “I love you.”

Sirius- “Will you marry me?”

Sirius- “See you at dinner!”
