tickets will be bought

PaleyFest Recap

My life has been completely crazy in the last 2-3 months (both personally and professionally) and I was sure I can not make it to Scandal PaleyFest even though I kind of wanted to. I stopped watching Scandal after 508, and I am not planning to watch it ever again (unless they fire Shonda and all the cast extras), but I am still a strong Terry fan even though they both annoy me greatly at times

Last minute, everything kind of fell into place and I decided to jump on the plane and go (I bought the ticket a whiiiiiile back, just in case).

I had a great seat, 2nd row in the middle, and Tony/Kerry were sitting conveniently right in front of me :-)

I did not want to watch any recent episodes and was very happy when the presenter announced we are watching Sweet Baby aka the pilot. It was great to watch the “real” Scandal on big screen, not have Mellie or Joke or Papa Pope pollute the screen, and whoop and cheer at all things Olitz and Olivia Pope with fellow Gladiators. 

The panel itself was shorter than the ones I attended before, but it still had its gems and things I will never forget. I am not great at taking pictures throughout the panel, so I don’t have any of Terry hand-holding, knee and back-rubbing or touches and kisses and stuff, but I am sure it is all well documented elsewhere. 

I was once again floored by how much love and connection you can sense from Tony and Kerry (I honestly barely paid any attention to anyone else). 

My favorite moment was Tony’s speech (of course!) and I also liked Kerry describing Harrison’s funeral scene. I felt it was genuine and touching, and Kerry became a pro at giving us some BS so it was great to hear her speak candidly. 

After the panel ended, the mass stampede to the stage began (it is truly crazy how it happens). Since I was right in the middle, I was in front of Kerry and she thankfully didn’t veer left or right to sign and take photos, so I was able to catch her attention. We probably had a 3 second interaction where she said hi while looking at me (which felt incredible!), then she took my phone and asked twice at least if I am in a frame :-) She is SO nice and friendly and warm and GORGEOUS, I was not prepared for that, and I saw her before, just not that up close and personal. 

Afterwards I tried to shuffle out of the crowd which was quite a workout and moved to the side of the stage where Tony was. He somehow noticed me too, so I have a selfie with him as well :-)

I also met some of the fellow Gladiators I know from before, so it was great to catch up with them! Even though Scandal is no more for me, I still appreciate the joy I get from interacting with the cast and meeting fans/friends I made though the show. 

p.s. Enjoy the pictures! :-) 

I was coming back from international break and I talked with a friend. I told him I wanted to propose to her [Macarena], that I wanted to do something big but I was ashamed. He told me to go to a cinema with her and propose in front of everybody. I didn’t want to do it because I was ashamed, but then I thought about it, and I talked to the cinema next to my home.
We went to the cinema, we bought tickets and we went to the waiting line. We entered the room, we were alone and nobody was coming in. She found it weird that nobody was entering the room, but…
The adverts started, then there was the video I did. It was photos with our favorite song and at the end, I was asking her to marry me and I take out the ring.

Next mission: get a car

I do not come from a family of practical people. M is probably the first child in three generations to have a bedtime. My mom is a hoarder. My dad throws everything away without thinking twice about it. They have been trying to get divorced for 6 years but they’re not reasonable enough to figure it out. We didn’t have pictures on the walls when I was a kid because my dad said he didn’t know how. We didn’t have a couch or dining table because the boxes and stacks of old newspapers took up all the space. Any vacation we took they bought plane tickets the night before because neither of them knows how to plan anything in advance. My mom would bring a dozen suitcases. My dad wouldn’t bring any.

I asked my dad whether I should buy or lease a used car, what kind, how many miles, whether I should do it here or in the new city. He said he doesn’t know. His car is a beat up Versa that his ex girlfriend leased for him to drive, because his credit was too bad to get a loan in his name, and he gave her cash for it, then more to buy out the rest of the lease plus extra for pain and suffering because he felt guilty when they broke up.

You ladies are the adults in my life. How do I get a car?


Hello FAM!!!

There’s a CON in Ghent next Saturday, and I’m SO excited, cuz I’m going as Nicole Haught (pics next week!!) I cannot believe this is my life rn? It’s going to die down a bit after –Oh wait, I’m going to London in two weeks!! :D :D I’m so busy, but I’ll have the end of Easter Break to rest :)

Boys are so ungrateful like ???

I send him nudes all the time and he’s like “ok” and I just told him I bought him tickets to see his fave comedian live ($150) and he was like “😐” literally that’s what he text back. Like ??? I spoil tf outta you in every way possible???? I buy him food like 4 times a week and I offer to do so much for him and like????? He leaves me up crying till 4:00 am????? ??????????? Yet I still love him unconditionally??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

okay now i’m confused lol
i got a text that said i’ll get a code tonight at 11:59 pm ET for the schott
i saw that someone got a code and bought tickets for express live already and i’m guessing others did the same for the other two shows
there was a tweet that said only the people that got texts would get a code tonight at 11:59 pm ET for the “additional shows”
like was that a mistake or will there be more??
if i can only go to the schott then i probably won’t be buying tickets since it’s a huge arena

So, Julian bought tickets for the Opera because Caitlin has never gone before? He's definitely raising my expectations towards men on a whole new level 😍


I bought a ticket to go see PJ Harvey by myself in August, because no one I know likes her and I’ve loved her since I was 14, and have only seen her a couple of times when I begged folk to go with me.

The day I apparently broke the internet! From Dallascon16

So I have come to learn that quite a lot of people have seen this photo and only about half know the amazing story behind it. So I thought I would finally tell it here on tumblr!

I had bought a mishalecki photo op ticket on the Thursday before the convention but had absolutely no clue what pose to do, until it hit me. I am a hug Misha fan, and every time I have gotten to talk to him I am usually sarcastic and try to match his wit. I also love Jared, he is like an actually giant puppy. Anyway way the whole fandom knows that Misha had bragged about how flexible he is, well I am quite flexible too. Just as flexible as Misha actually,lol! So then this pose came to mind. I knew it would crack Jared up and it would give me a chance to show off some skill. I didn’t want to many people knowing what pose I was going to do because I was afraid volunteers might not be keen on the idea or I just wanted it to be a surprise.

So I was third or so in line for the photo and Misha and Jared set the tone pretty quickly with their entrance that screamed fun and sexy. Half the people in the room knew what pose I was gonna do and the other half didn’t. When it came my turn I walked up to Jared and Misha, I had to repeat it twice but for the sake of just retyping the same things I will write once.

I stood between Jared and Misha, looking at Jared while I kept Misha in my sights. I said this, “ Hey guys so I am going to do a pose you have never done before. (They began to smile; I then gently put my hand on Misha’s chest to direct Jared’s attention) See I am more flexible than Misha is, (Jared chuckled, Misha looked curious) so I am going to do a reverse table top yoga pose and I want you two to arm wrestle on my stomach. Look as extreme as possible, got it!?” I had to repeat this twice, but both were smiling and went ok, I have a feeling they were still confused, that was until I hit the ground. I heard half the room gasp,slightly, and the other half sorta whispering. From above I heard Jared and Misha go at the same time, “OH”, they had finally understood. Jared actually signaled for Chris to do another picture because he realized they both were not ready when the photo was taken, I am so glad he did cause it turned out amazing.

As I started to come out of the pose Jared helped me up, which was basically pulling me 3ft into the air, I am 5′2! He went, “Damn girl that was kick ass!” and gave me a high five. I told both of them thank you and started to walk away when Misha decided he was not done with me yet. Misha gently grabbed my arm and pulled me back. He leaned in so close to my face I could feel his scruff and he whispered, “ Your not more flexible than me.” As I turned to look at him he gave me the Casifer grin and winked. And to put the cherry on top of me walking away I started smiling and wagging my finger going, “No no no no no”, and the damn music stopped. Misha and Jared chuckled and I left. Later that day I showed Jared the photo, he cracked up laughing and decided to sign it, even though I already had his auto. I was like Jared stop and he went, nope I am signing this. He also signed it with AKF.

There you have it, my crazy story!

Yahya Abu Romman, a 22-year-old languages major, had just graduated from university. To celebrate, he planned a six-week trip to the U.S., where his brother, uncles and aunts and more than a dozen cousins have lived for years.

With good grades, an engaging personality and fluency in three languages — English, Arabic and Spanish — he had worked as a nature conservation ranger while studying, and had his pick of jobs with tour companies in Jordan, a strong U.S. ally.

In 2015, Abu Romman was issued a tourist visa at the U.S. embassy in Amman, good for five years. With money from a graduation present, he bought a round-trip ticket and landed at Chicago’s O'Hare International Airport a few days after the start of President Trump’s travel ban on the citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries.

That’s where the positive impression of the U.S. he’d inherited from his father came to a screeching halt.

“My dad is a graduate from the University of Illinois,” says Abu Romman. “He always told me America is the land of justice, land of opportunities, of generosity. That there are very kind people. And there are. But I think things have changed.”
