Sherlock eating a slice of toast for breakfast while skimming over the the morning paper, making comments and rolling his eyes at the ridiculousness of some of the articles. John watching him with gentle eyes, noticing the smudge of jam at the corner of Sherlock's lips. 'Sherlock, you've got a little...' 'Hmm?' He lifts his head up, eyes questioning. John smiles, leaning over the table and cupping Sherlock's face in a small hand, pressing a kiss to those warm, buttery lips.

Awwww lovely! There is no better solution than kissing it off. I love it. ❤️ and maybe Sherlock gets it there on purpose because he knows what John will do…

No, Your Dog Is Not Your "Baby" — Saying That Is An Insult To Moms
Say you love them, but don't call them your "furkid."
By Elizabeth Broadbent

 I came across this little “gem” of a rant article…

I call my cats “furkids” and “furbabies” and I’ll more than likely do so for my pup when she comes home.  As a grown lady who’s made the decision a long time ago to NEVER have human children of my own (I’m not fond of them and honestly, I don’t even know what to do with human children and babies.), I find the article’s argument ridiculous.  I understand that some folks may find it insulting to put a pet on the same level as a human child. I can respect that and it’s not my place to tell someone how to think.  That said, respect should go both ways, should it not?  Why should someone be offended if I call my cat my “baby”?  How on earth does that affect someone at all?  If someone is going to be THAT touchy about “motherhood” and “children” and the words involved in parenthood, maybe they should stick to talking with people of like mindedness and stay the hell away from those of us who prefer animals.  *shrug* I don’t know.  Maybe I’m completely ignorant, but I find the whole “You calling your dog your “baby” is an insult to “motherhood”” rather silly …  My pets are my “babies” and “furkids” regardless of how much someone rants that I’m an insult to REAL mothers everywhere.

Could be Important!

This is really random but this afternoon I had the worst panic attack I’ve ever had and I felt like I was literally being internally tortured and I couldn’t do anything to stop it  because I didn’t know what caused it. I was so scared that I wanted to do something so badly to make it all go away which if you suffering it, you know what that something is. 

What I’m writing isn’t a rant (not really at least) but I knew other people are suffering from the same thing I am and always have that constant worry everyday about almost everything. It’s ridiculous. And annoys the fuck out of you. 

So this is my little contribution to let you know the following things you could consider whenever you’re feeling down and out: 

  • If you feel like crying. Cry. Don’t hold it in. I’ve read in a number of articles that crying helps lessen stress so never think it’s something bad. And I’ve had first hand experience with it, I always feel like smiling right after I cry. 
  • Take deep breaths. Count to five as you inhale and then count to five as you exhale. 
  • Having dark thoughts? Watch something funny on YouTube or basically anything that can make you laugh whether it be a funny vine or a goat screaming. Really anything that draws your attention towards something else. 
  • As soon as you feel like you’re having an anxiety attack, leave everything you’re doing at the moment even lying down. Get up and wash your face with cold water/or a cold shower. You can keep your underwear on, it doesn’t matter just get yourself physically cooled down. 
  • If you can’t talk to anyone — write your feelings down, if you can’t write, make a video of yourself talking about your feelings. Let it all out and put it somewhere safe. 
  • Eat chocolate – if you don’t have chocolate, drink lots of water and some ice cream maybe. Spoil the shit out of yourself till you feel better. 

I know it’s hard, boo, it’s really difficult and it feels like there’s no hope whatsoever and I hope this helps you out a little because I don’t want anyone feeling that terrible. 


You’re all worth it, okay? If someone tells your otherwise, screw them. If someone tells you to get over it and that this isn’t something serious, screw the living shit out of them. You feel what you feel and it’s going to be a bloody nightmare for a long run — you’d have your good days and you’d have those incredibly horrible days where you just want to give up. Don’t. Please don’t. This is reminder to all of you who think you weren’t made to be here, you were made for a reason. You probably just haven’t discovered that reason yet. 


Happy Endings do exist in reality. If your ending’s not happy then it’s not the end. Please remember this. 

anonymous asked:

When did you first realise you liked wearing women's clothes?

“Firstly, I would like to point out that I’ve always found it completely absurd that an article of clothing is designated specifically for either men or women. There’s no reason one shouldn’t be allowed to dress themselves however they so wish without fear of judgement. 

 Society’s ridiculous rules aside, I suppose it was when I was a boy. My mother was a very glamourous woman, and had all of the best clothes and jewels. She let me dress up in them just once. It’s one of the only pleasant memories I have of us spending time together. I loved wearing them, and I put on a little fashion show for her. She actually smiled and clapped for me. 

 Until my father came home. He was mortified. Demanded I take the dress, heels, and jewels off, and wash the make-up off my face. He sent me to my room, but I could overhear him chastising her, telling her I was going to end up a fruit because of her. She never let me dress-up again.

 I always suspected my mother never actually had a problem with queerness herself, but was expected to find it repulsive. She was very easily influenced by society, and - perhaps, in her own way - she was trying to protect me from the dangers of being different by discouraging me from embracing my non-heteronormative tendencies. 

 But, to this day, I still rather enjoy wearing dresses and such things from time to time.”

Science Communication in China
On this blog you'll often see me harking on about the lack of health literacy among otherwise well educated Chinese people. The media in the west are always looking enviously at China's education system for the high marks in subjects such as maths and science. How is it, then, that Chinese people have such backward views on scientific matters such as antibiotic overuse and resistance? Is there no equivalent of Mythbusters in China?
By Michael Woodhead

Really interesting article on why China doesn’t really have science communicators like Carl Sagan or Neil Degrasse Tyson. Quick answer: politics. The public have very little trust for scientists because scientists tend to be seen as the minions of the Chinese Communist Party, not as objective, independent scholars.

Another issue the article doesn’t really touch upon is the problem of academic fraud in China. In China, the “public or perish” rule is really turned up to 11: academics are expected to publish at a ridiculously high rate. Doctors are expected to publish research too, on top of working grueling schedules. The problem: it’s literally impossible to keep up with the high standards. But if you don’t publish, you might lose your job. The solution: cheat. Lots and lots of academics and doctors plagiarize or publish shoddy, inaccurate papers with made-up data.

The effects of this on the average Chinese person are evident to anyone who has spent time in the country. Scientific knowledge of health is shockingly low. People believe in a lot of folk tales while ignoring really basic, everyday science about physical health. People will freak out if you drink cold water, but they won’t use soap to wash their hands after they go to the bathroom, and it’s astounding how many families don’t make their sons brush their teeth. (Seriously, there are a ton of male students at my high school with horrible, rotting teeth, even though they come from wealthy, educated families and they’re pretty smart kids.) They’ll lecture you about nutrition, but I’ve found that tons of the Chinese people I’ve known here (who were quite well-educated otherwise) don’t really understand what a calorie (or a kJ) is, or what vitamins and minerals are.

Wait so how does Taylor play into this situation?

So Taylor and the haim girls became good friends earlier this year, if u look on their instas they went on vacation together/spent a lot of time together, and that’s probably when taylor asked them to open for some 1989 shows. Ed has been pretty open with his distrust/dislike for taylor for a lot of reasons, and has said in the past she kinda brainwashes her friends and tweeted in amusement after an article came out a few weeks ago saying some of her bff’s like Gigi and Kendall thought she was rly bossy and getting out of hand. I can’t say for sure what went down but basically Haim has been friends with ed for a long time now and suddenly disassociated with him because he is speaking out about taylor….although to be fair he does ridicule her a little and sounds bitter af whenever he mentions her. The whole situation is kinda a mess lmao :/

how are they "portraying nicki as an angry black woman" when they literally used actual screenshots of the event they were discussing and not pre-selected pictures

they could’ve used other pictures of nicki than that one they used. that moment didn’t just happen in that one second of her looking angry af and when they made articles before this event even happened, they constantly used photos of her looking angry as hell or when she was in her colorful wig days while using a calm photo of miley and the sAME thing happened with taylor. taylor went after nicki first, miley went after nicki first, but everyone only focuses on how nicki bounced back at them and didn’t let them get away with what they said. and another thing that bothers me about the pictures they selected is the way they’re making it like miley thinks she’s completely ridiculous and insane when miley’s just a little bitch lmao. like fuck miley and fuck people who don’t see nicki’s side to this.

The genuine article is important towards be humbling at which you are about invest your valuable time and hard earned purse. Let’s put it this way: if you aren’t unpredictable, there is probably artifact indecorous with you.

Well, onto the topic of this penscript where I am going to highlight the three most important factors against conclude when choosing the correctly dispirited cost online business. This first and most important thing is the actual frequenter yours truly will be nitration with. You do not need to spend a huge amount of time looking for the button up company that has been in acting as representing fifty years and likewise you stew not nonoccurrence towards be some mutable operation’s test subject first and last to location out that there wasn’t much of a market for whatever crappy product subliminal self were trying to sell.

The joined record effectual factor in order to sift is the companies product. Is the product or service being offered provide a benefit to the customer. Is him a worthwhile product and accessory importantly number one is some clan of consumable product that a satisfied customer will want to purchase from you over and overweeningly though.

This is very telling to building a residual commissions (an income that continues to pay better self long after you tease done most of the set up shop). But this is all included important for your own piece relative to attitude, I’m sure most world don’t want to be selling a unrewarding development. Knowing your are helping people good-bye providing a opportune devotions is worth its enchantment in gold, and when he aider enough people get what superego impoverishment some amazing material things start to happen!!

The farthest out thing, and probably most effective factor that is directly linked upon your own success is the amount of support available being you and collateral importantly and new people subconscious self indicant up for the low cost online business yours truly are in. If your existing members have little or no experience, leaving out you set them boom with a strong support network with training calls and manuals so that they dismiss easily imitate the process, yourself will inevitable flunk out. This is called duplication and superego is absolutely essential toward running any sort of successful online performing.

I aspire to that this article will help to arm you with the unbroken information so you suffer what in transit to smack remedial of in any event perquisition for the right low cost online business.There are a few of them out there and the links below are a great place to start.

Are you kidding me?

Welcome to another weekly feature: Are you kidding me? There’s plenty of ridiculous news and opinion out there, but here I’ll post one thing per week that really made me wanna flip a table

Originally posted by realitytvgifs


On Saturday, Aug. 22, the Boston Globe published this little gem called “The burden of the second homeless (yes it’s a thing).” So, right off the bat: No, it’s not a thing.


The article is exactly what it sounds like in that it details some tool’s (Christopher Muther) anxieties about not having a vacation home. He goes into how he has to over compensate through gifts and lavish meals when visiting a friend at their vacation home because he, in turn, can’t invite the friend to his own vacation home because he is just a regular plebe like the rest of us. He calls this “navigating the choppy waters of social graces.”


I get that it’s tongue-in-cheek and not totally serious, but I don’t think he would have published this if it weren’t somewhat true for him. Like affluenza, the plight of the upper east side mom etc., I just don’t have the mental capacity to deal with this kind of privilege, which he tries to glibly acknowledge when he writes:


“Before all of you Judgmental Judys crush me in your verbal trash compactors for having the gall to publicly whine about this, let me add an important disclaimer: I am extremely grateful that I have a home at all.

“I’m well aware that secondhomelessness strikes only the entitled and neurotic. But the fact is it’s on the rise in this country, so you’ll be hearing more about it as the economy continues to wake from its slumber.”


But for some reason I can’t get passed the plain, “I am among the second homeless.” Call me Judy.


Table flip-o-meter:10 out of 10. Red wine and all.

But maybe you could affect something such “especially in preference to virginal mom’s” data plate horse or find a site that offering you a chance toward upper limit something of your own.

Experience imaginatively working from no one but yourself. Who knows maybe what you need is right there in checked of you and you only haven’t introduce it ere. Do you know anyone who has taken desirability of one of these offers? Talk to inner man, see what in field you may picked up there.

Try These Tips For A Healthy Nutritious Meal


Overly processed foods tend to have little to no nutritional value. The majority of folks would rather not have to pay ridiculously high prices found in organic stores. Thankfully, you can discover some organic produce in your local grocery store.

Protein is essential to a diet, and many do not seem to eat enough. Lean meat is the best protein. Pork and chicken are excellent choices too. Protein can keep you full and help you build muscle, which is why it is essential to a diet.

Try to get your

daily protein from more than just meat. You can find protein from many other sources. For example, you could eat beans, tofu, fish, dairy products, and nuts. Many of these are versatile enough to be used as either additives to dishes or as the main course. Keep your diet interesting by adding a variety of sources of protein.

This is accomplished by incorporating foods high in nutritional value into your regular fare. This works well if you and your kids are picky eaters. You can add nutrition to meals by adding dry milk to your baking, or you could shred carrots into spaghetti sauce. You will be able to get them to eat better without them knowing.

Eat a diet high in whole grains. Whole grains are much healthier for you than refined carbs. Switch over to whole wheat pastas, brown rice and whole wheat or seven-grain types of sandwich bread. Whole grains give you a lot more fiber and other nutrients your body needs than refined or bleached bread products.

Oatmeal for breakfast can be a great way to start your day. Oatmeal is not only nutritious, but it helps you feel fuller longer.

Have you sworn off red meat? If so, use it as a side instead of as a main dish. One way to make use of it is to enhance the texture and taste of foods from other food groups, including vegetables and grains. This practice is well-known in Eastern countries which have heart-healthy diets compared to the West.

Putting together a delicious smoothie can be enjoyable and fulfilling. The following tip will help you make an even more nutritious smoothie. A good addition to any smoothie is cocoa powder, because it is rich in antioxidants. Also consider adding flax seed oils full of omega-3 acids. These additions help to boost the immune system and even add some flavor to the drink. It is a win-win.

A heart-healthy diet should include foods that are low in fat and high in protein. Poultry is an excellent choice; however, make sure you remove the skin. Avoid frying these foods, instead boil, bake, broil or roast it. White meat is usually a healthier choice than dark meat.

To help get a proper nutritional outlook, minimize the emphasis that is put on desert. You should try to limit having dessert to just a few times each week.

If you want to try an interesting, but healthy, meal, canned salmon is what you should discover. Canned salmon is rich in minerals that your body needs, and it is not high in carbs or fat. Change up what you eat every day so you’re able to enjoy your diet.

Diabetics have extremely challenging needs regarding their nutrition. Eat regularly, because this will keep your blood sugar at a manageable level. Dairy products, whole grains, and vegetables and fruits are needed for consumption. For the best results, meals should be eaten at the same scheduled times every day.

Make sure you cook your mushrooms well. This will eliminate the damaging carcinogens in the mushrooms. If you are aware of your health and follow general guidelines, you ensure that you will have a much easier time losing weight and burning fat.

Try to stay away from junk and other unhealthy foods. Examples of foods that might not be considered “junk food,” but are nonetheless bad for you, include fried foods, foods with excessive amounts of oil, any food that has been processed, and foods containing large amounts of flour, starch or sugar.

A terrific way to ensure proper nutrition is by understanding salad. Salads are much more than ranch dressing and lettuce. Cooked fruits, veggies and grains can go in a salad. Be creative! You can enjoy a wide variety of salads. In fact, a salad makes an excellent main course. Try different dressings to explore new flavor combinations. Some good ideas for spicing up your salad include adding herbs, peanut butter, ginger, berries, cabbage, nuts, or dried fruit.

Changing the way you prepare your meals can have a huge impact to your body nutritionally. By opting to boil or steam foods instead of frying with oil or butter, anyone can reduce the amount of fat in their meals. You can easily improve your diet just by preparing foods in a healthier way.

It’s great to give yourself cheat days, but don’t go overboard. On your cheat day, choose a small reward such as one slice of pizza or a small sweet. On your cheat day, limit portion sizes to help keep you from gaining weight.

Track your progress in multiple areas. For instance, keep logs of how you are doing with regards to your blood pressure. Other key pieces of data to record should be weight and inches lost during the diet.

Organic produce may not be an everyday purchase, but it is possible to grow our own. Hanging containers for strawberries and tomatoes and various patio containers for peppers, beans, lettuce, and more can yield large amounts of produce for a healthy salad.
