Please deliver to Orrin Hatch’s office, #8402 and attach the following note: “From a Salt Lake constituent in 84105. Please vote NO on Betsy Devos. She is an inappropriate choice to lead our public schools.
Julia Silge tried repeatedly to get in touch with her senator about the upcoming confirmation vote, but she was only able to leave one message before the answering machine had apparently been filled. It was then that she resorted to an unconventional way of reaching out.
Ultimately, the pizza was unable to be delivered as it could not make it past security, but this just goes to show the great lengths people are going through in order to have their voices be heard!
Lea Berman and Jeremy Bernard have organized state dinners and congressional picnics, each serving as White House social secretary for different administrations. Bernard worked for President Obama; Berman for President George W. Bush. And they’ve collaborated on a new book that uses their White House experiences to draw out lessons in how to handle crises, defuse awkward moments and manage expectations.
[this one got long (that’s what she said) so I put it under a cut; if you like, you can assume this is compliant with my sometimes-hc about Scully, as I wrote in this ficlet awhile back]
Mulder wonders if they’ll even notice that he bailed on “Tactical Empathy: Interview Rapport Building” at the final break; he’s so bored and brain-fried from the last seven tedious hours of Skinner-ordered punishment — ok, training — that he’s not sure he didn’t actually die in there, and it’s just his ghost descending to the basement. He’d be halfway home by now, but for the need to retrieve the files for the Snoqualmie case on his desk.
As soon as he’s out of the elevator, he hears Scully’s voice from their partially-open door. He perks up a little — she wasn’t supposed to be here today, but maybe her committee testimony wrapped up early? Maybe she’d even want to go for a drink; they could both use a little loosening up after a week like this, of nothing but bureaucracy and torpidity.
Whoever she’s talking to, it doesn’t sound like a fun conversation. He pauses a few feet away, torn between curiosity and good manners — but she’s such an enigma, he can’t pass up the chance to glean whatever he can about her personal life.
When we National Socialists speak of a belief in God, we do not mean what naive Christians and their clerical exploiters have in mind. …The power of nature’s law is what we call the omnipotent force or God. …We National Socialists demand of ourselves that we live as naturally as possible, that is to say in accord with the laws of life. The more precisely we understand and observe the laws of nature and of life and the more we keep to them, the more we correspond to the will of this omnipotent force.
The next star of Doctor Who has been announced after intense speculation – and the person stepping into the role of Time Lord is Jodie Whittaker.
She is the first woman to take on the role, playing the 13th Doctor. Whittaker, who rose to fame in ITV’s crime drama Broadchurch, had been touted as one of the contenders.
Debate has been whirring over who would play the Doctor ever since Peter Capaldi announced in January that he was leaving the programme.
Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who’s new head writer and executive producer, said: “After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we’re excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor.
“I always knew I wanted the 13th Doctor to be a woman and we’re thrilled to have secured our number one choice. Her audition for the Doctor simply blew us all away.
“Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role. The 13th Doctor is on her way.”
Whittaker said: “I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet. It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”
On 4 July, BBC2’s current affairs programme Newsnight appeared to reveal the identity of the new Doctor. Presenter Evan Davis said: “Bookies’ favourite Phoebe Waller-Bridge has denied claims that she’s going to be the first female Doctor. But then, Joanna Lumley has already played the role for Comic Relief, so that would technically be true.”
Emily Cook, editorial assistant at Doctor Who magazine, said: “I am very excited about this. As soon as I saw Jodie Whittaker appear on the video in the BBC clip announcing her, it just felt right – she just felt like the Doctor. Having a female Doctor is really exciting and significant. I cannot wait to see what she does with the role and where she takes the show.
“She will bring a freshness. She is younger than Peter Capaldi and, being a woman, she will have a different approach to the role. It’s completely new territory for the show and that is very exciting. Whittaker has worked with David Tennant on Broadchurch and St Trinian’s so there is a strong Doctor Who connection there.”
Erica Lear, the social secretary at the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, said: “I think it’s very brave but she is a brilliant actress. I did not expect it but I think it’s brilliant. My only wish was that we have a good actor and that is what we have.”
But Lear noted that the appointment might divide opinion. “It will spark debate and split fandom; there will be lots of people not happy with the decision but it’s up to the new series to change their mind.”
Capaldi said: “Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker’s work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm. She has above all the huge heart to play this most special part. She’s going to be a fantastic Doctor.”
Okay because I’m actually not shutting up about this and I rarely do headcanon posts but this isn’t something I’ll write: Performing arts nerds
Alfred is your classic musical theatre tenor
He’s definitely more of a singer than a dancer kind of guy but he can kill the dance numbers too
Definitely took tap lessons he’s amazing at tap, probably played either Don Lockwood or Cosmo Brown in Singing In The Rain at some point and it’s his proudest moment even though he was like 16 or something when he did it
Probably been doing kids musical theatre since he was three or something and never stopped
S h o w s m i l e
Arthur’s a straight actor, never done dance or singing
He probably took music though and he does have a very nice voice maybe did choir
He has such a presence on stage and he’s so expressive which you don’t expect because he’s usually so deadpan and full of dry wit
Actually amazing at comedy roles
Proudest moment is either playing Macbeth or Captain Hardy (Journey’s End)
S t a g e c o m b a t
Also probably played Mercuito when he was like 14 and loved it
He’s so good at accents?? Like??? What the fuck????
If they’re in university then Alfred’s definitely on the committee for whatever musical theatre group there is – not president, maybe social secretary. Meanwhile Arthur’s probably part of two different acting companies, one is shakespeare specific and one is just anything but he’s only on the committee for one (i’ll bet shakespeare)
They have a joking rivalry
But they’re mates because all the theatre nerds have joint socials and they get along
Going!! To support each other during rehearsals!!!
Alfred snapchats about a tiring day of dance rehearsals and Arthur shows up to bring him a coffee
(they’re not dating but every cast member is p much “bitch why aren’t you”)
Running lines with each other
Standing ovations when they watch each other’s performances not just because they’re friends but because they’re actually impressed
Arthur could listen to Alfred sing for hours and does because he’ll sit with him to keep him company while Alfred’s learning songs
Alfred watched Arthur in a play once where Arthur died on stage and he ugly cried
Commander in Chief (American President AU), 3/?, Cat/Kara
Is it time for a State Dinner? And a date? Bet your ass.
She’s Cinderella approaching her very own ball, only somehow she’s still Kara Danvers and she’s the guest of a President, not a Prince. Thank God the Social Secretary, Mrs Landingham, had called to make sure Kara received the hand-delivered invitation. The White House messenger had interrupted one of Astra’s briefings, and the office is still abuzz with gossip about who at 1600 could possibly have sent something to Myriad’s newest member of staff. Kara likes everyone there on first impressions, but she’s never been fond of gossip.
So instead of a perfectly serviceable cocktail dress for a small but formal dinner, Kara is draped in something eye-wateringly expensive, and the darkest of navy blues, from Stella McCartney. Mrs Landingham had kindly emailed over her list of ‘fashion contacts’ and the first boutique Kara visited had won her over with their emphasis on eco-friendly fashions.
“You’re Danvers?” Asks the brisk brunette who Kara thinks might be the President’s personal secretary. “Come on, we need to clear your car before the ambassador’s car pulls in. No fender benders this time.”
“More so in the Ellipse than here, but I’m not going to be giving them any excuse. No gun in your purse I assume? You do still have to clear security like everyone else, but it’s best not to have surprises.”
“I DO apologize for the slackness shown by the owner of this blog. Once again, replies are tardy! Poor manners indeed. My new social secretary, P0RNY1, is here to take dictation. You might recall that my brother I’Lumar created her for me after the Yurei brothers ate our previous secretary.”
“DICtation, sir? Will the Yurei brothers eat me too?”
“Enough of your suggestive humor! Almost as bad as that @treason-and-plot woman! And do not alter my respectable replies as I suspect you have been doing.”
“Such a Dom Daddy. Will you punish me if I disobey? “
“Speak no more B0T! This should be a respectable blog!”
(P0RNY1 was inspired by certain B0ts that plague our blogs, leaving inappropriate comments and reblogging our stuff. So far, none of my P0RNY1 posts has ever been reblogged by them. ;P It would be funny if that happened. )
“Sometimes I see the one called Stygnar Abyssi. He’s kinda grumpy. He does not like Frolic dude, but hired him as a social secretary once. Not sure why. I don’t always get things explained to me. Also, everyone seems to be somehow in the present but they sometimes talk about their present as if its the past. They confuse me. This whole place confuses me.
Grumpy Stygnar disapproves of all the mushrooms and candy. He complains that his brother I’Lumar encourages mushrooms to grow all over the walls and floors of their mansion. He says ‘We were Ascended Dragons of the highest social status and I’Lumar is responsible for what happened to the descendants.’ “
