trucks are too tall these days

The Signs and S̷͓͙͈̬̳̲̖p̵̴͚̣a̟̥͉c̢̣̠̼̳e͓͈̠̬̖͚̗͉

Aries: The burst water main. Its a hot day. Ignore the chitinous things that rest under the spray.

Taurus: The street fair. There are flags you don’t recognize.

Gemini: The defunct factory. Every once in a while you see a truck pull up to load. You’ve never seen the drivers

Cancer: The mattress store. The only person you’ve ever seen inside is the saleswoman. Shes too tall. It makes you uncomfortable.

Leo: The outdoor shopping center. These huge stucco structures don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to them. At least, not to you.

Virgo: The computer store run by rats. They do most of their business over the internet. You just leave your laptop on the counter, ring the bell, and leave.

Libra: The place where the murders happened.

Scorpio: The local newspaper building. Always dark aside from the radio tower.

Ophiuchus: The train yard. Its been a long time since there was any shipping done here, but all the restaurants are train themed.

Sagittarius: The toy store, the little one. It seems like they just produce smaller versions of normal products and call them toys.

Capricorn: The national park. The ranger is a Yokut. She insists you stick to the trails.

Aquarius: The light industrial district. How does anyone find anything here?

Pisces: The churchyard. The oak tree here has been growing for nearly three centuries now. Its ripping apart the foundation of the church. Slowly.

The Contest-Part 16

To celebrate Supernatural’s 15th season, the producers have decided to hold a contest to cast an unknown in a recurring role as Sam’s rumored love interest.  They are doing open casting calls all over the country.  Your best friend Nikki wants to go and she drags you along.

A/N: My inspiration for Nikki is the one and only red, @oriona75.  So I am actually telling two stories here, Jared and Readers, and Sam and Gemini’s.  It flips back and forth, so try and keep up! :)

Characters: Jared Padalecki, Reader, Best friend Nikki(OC) Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, PA Emily (OC) Cliff, Other Supernatural cast and crew

Part 1 (all parts are linked)

The five of us ended up at one of the casinos on the strip.  Don’t ask me which one, because the next day it would all be a blur.  Jensen bought the first round of shots and we toasted the happy couple.  

“I still think you guys are nuts and totally deserve each other.”  He said before downing his shot.

“You call that a toast, Jay?”  I commented with a roll of my eyes. I signaled for the bartender to bring another round.  I raised my glass and everyone followed suit.  “Here’s to Nikki and Misha.  She is officially your problem now.”

Everyone laughed as we downed our shots.  Nikki made a face and gave hers to Misha to finish. “I’d like to remember my wedding night, thank you very much.”

Then a group of fans recognized us and bought us a round.  Things started to get a little fuzzy after that.  I remember Misha reminding us we all had panels in the morning. 

 Jensen, who didn’t have any official duties until the Saturday Night Special the next night, said it was early yet and ordered another round.  I remember Nikki and I dancing with a bunch of fans who sent over a congratulatory round when they found out Nikki and Misha had eloped.

Jared and Misha finally came over and pulled us from the dance floor.  “Come on Dancing Queen, time to go.”  Jared told me as I stumbled into his arms.

“But I’m having funnn!” I giggled.  “Hey Mish, guess what?” I whispered drunkenly.  “You and Nikki got married!”

I don’t remember the ride back to the hotel at all.

I watched Cars for the first time the other day, because I have a four year old. And I get the transation of human things into automotive equivalents – tires are shoes, gasoline is a beverage, all very cute. But what the hell are the tractors for, in the Cars universe? Why are there even farms?

My son’s opinion was that the racing was fun but that it was too long. He would rather watch Mater’s Tall Tales on mommy’s Kindle.

This comment on youtube is what I’ve been saying for years. I don’t understand. Her music, most of it anyway sounds like it would have been put out in the 70’s. It’s just sounds like some good old classic rock. and She’s such a fan! I would kill to talk about music with her and you can tell she’s the type to tall about it all day if she could.

She’s such a fan and so down to earth. I remember this interview on the George Lopez tonight show about how she met Robert Plant. and was like “You, Me, Bathroom, now!” XD She was so starstruck she turned into this 1970’s groupie. XD and she talked about how she has a 8 track player in her truck with a Queen 8 track in it, she’s so fucking down to earth. She talks about Neil Young A LOT too which is just fucking awesome she’s did so many AMAZING covers of him, I’d love to see them do a song together. She performed with Anne and Nancy Wilson of Heart. She just knows her music.

I couldn’t find the longer in depth video from the Lopez tonight show about Robert Plant but here’s a brief one. [link]

Here’s Grace performing “Down By The River” by Neil Young

& Here’s her redoing her blues song “2:22” With Allman Brother/Gov’t Mule guitarist, Warren Haynes

but man, she lives, breathes, eat, & sleeps rock and roll.

Life was a bit boring. You usually followed the same routine everyday. You’d wake up at eight, go to work, eat your packed lunch, go back to work, stop at the gas station for a soda, and then go home. Each day you stopped at the gas station and there was always the same guy there. He’d pull up in a giant Silverado truck, get down and open the door for you, and then go over to the register. You were a bit too shy to say thank you, so you always just nodded politely. The guy was pretty tall, wore half buttoned up shirts that showed his tattoos, skinny jeans, and boots, all completely black…every single day. You weren’t stupid, you knew he was opening the door to take a glance at your ass, but as long as he didn’t bother you then it wasn’t a problem.

It was a beautiful and bright sunny day, and you were out shopping alone on the outskirts of the busy downtown of Gangnam. Smiling at the mini accessories you saw on booths, you would take pictures of them and buy one of each, for they’re just too irresistible for you.

“Excuse me, miss. But are you from the rookie girl group, Sunset?” A female student around your age comes to ask, when she sees you trying on the adorable hair clips of an ahjumma’s booth.

You turn around to properly greet her and answers with a sweet grin, “why yes I am!”

AN: After a long dormant phase, I’m finally back to writing. And since I’m so close to my next million followers (can you believe it? Don’t. It’s not true.), this is like a little gift to all you lovely people. :))

Clarke is twelve, it’s her birthday party, but she’s missing and nobody knows where she is.

Her mother, with her godawful bright yellow blouse and her hair in a bun, is looking for her all over their little neighborhood – knocking on doors and fences, going “have you seen Clarke? It’s her birthday party, but she ran away.”

The thing is for Clarke, the birthday party has always been too much. Every year ever since she can remember, her parties are always so full of people. Children from her school and children from the neighborhood, and their parents, people that she doesn’t know all swarm to their huge front lawn bearing all these gifts that she doesn’t like or care for.

The only person who can talk her down from escaping to the small playground park behind that shabby blue house was her father. He always found a way to make her stay and actually enjoy – danced with her until she’s breathless with laughter and her cheeks hurt from too much smiling. He can’t do that anymore, Clarke thinks bitterly, kicking the ground so that the swing goes higher up the air.

Jake Griffin met an untimely death four months before her 12th birthday after being run over by a truck. She doesn’t know about everyone else but four months are too short to get over the death of the only person who understands her. Her mother seems over it already, which makes this whole mess suckier than it already was. And seeing her smile at the guests as if she was always meant to stand at the gates alone makes Clarke sick… it sucks.

“What does?”
