one time I lived in a shitty apartment in a very fancy part of
Montreal. The grocery stores near me were either small organic
independent shops, or one large but expensive grocer. We’re talking
prices like $5, on sale, for a single red pepper. What I saved in rent
went to my food budget.
The stores could charge this amount because their regular customers
were very well off. Rich Montreal Quebecois have a certain air about
them. Rude, aloof, and full of themselves. Going shopping was a lesson
in patience until I learned how to amuse myself and not get flustered.
For some ungodly reason, the grocer was the socializing spot for
these rich people. Every isle had groups of people chatting away with
each other or had people on their phones. They would be sort of polite
and hug the walls, but they would never move from their spots. If I
needed a can of chickpeas, I’d point behind them and politely say excuse
me. So meek and unassuming- my downfall. They would hold up a finger
and imply that I should wait until they were done. They were never done.
After months of trying to get my shopping done in a reasonable amount
of time, I had enough. If they were going to be rude, I would be too…
but in the pettiest and most uncomfortable way possible. My new attack
plan was this. I would ask to grab the item, and if they didn’t move, I
would grab it anyway! But oh no, I wouldn’t just push past. I got way up
in their personal space. I would step as close as possible, with my
face right next to theirs, and reach with my arm on the other side of
their head. We might as well have been kissing, it was that close. Then
I’d move on and continue my shopping.
I made it a game- how uncomfortable I could make them but still be as
respectful and polite as possible. 10/10 would recommend. The looks on
their faces as they were forced to pause their conversations were
priceless. I’m just an ignorant English girl after all. No one ever
confronted me on my etiquette. And I cut my shopping time in half.
Tldr: shared breathing space with gilded statue shoppers to get my garbanzo beans.
Lipstick or chapstick: Both! I usually have either on my lips to fight the bad habit of licking them. This is one of those guilty pleasures where I always buy new stuff and possess a lot of colors but end up not using half of them lol!
Last Movie I Watched: Uhhh I think it was
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Top 3 Shows: I’ve never really been all that into watching TV, nowadays I usually watch stuff on youtube. I did see the first season of American Horror Story recently and it was pretty good! If I do watch TV it’s usually some kind of documentary like
Medical Detectives & I loved
Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction when I was younger
Top 3 Characters: I think everyone knows who my husbandos are so I’m gonna mention some other characters that I like!
Maya Amano - Persona 2: It’s hard to describe, I love her
cheerful and compassionate
attitude. She’s both a good character and protagonist with admirable traits
Lloyd Irving - Tales Of Symphonia: This game means a lot to me since it helped me through a difficult time and so does Lloyd. I can’t even specifically say what it is, I have a weak spot for him haha! To me he was someone with a strong personality who always tried his best and didn’t give up which kind of inspired me
Mercedes - Odin Sphere: I don’t want to spoil others (go play this game if you haven’t, it’s amazing!) so I’m just gonna say that I liked her character developement
So after seeing some of the comments from the haters about why Richonne would have an apple handy first thing in the morning, I decided to Google apples as a breath freshener because I remembered my dentist telling me the same thing a while back, and I think it’s pretty common knowledge, but anyway, this is what I found on one of the several sites that popped up:
“Think of apples as a natural toothbrush for your mouth. You see when you chew an apple it produces quite a bit of saliva production and the combination with the high fiber content of apples will help cleanse your mouth.”
Now, we know that dental hygiene is very important to Michonne. I mean, come on, the woman brushed for teeth for 20 minutes once she got her hands on a toothbrush, and she was borrowing Rick and Carl’s toothpaste on the regular. Rick knows this about her as well. I mean, he spent all day trying to find her her favorite toothpaste, and when that plan went south, he got her some mints, and the rest as they say is history.
Michonne is a smart cookie, so i have no doubt that she would know that an apple would freshen your breath and would have one bedside for her and Rick to freshen up when they awake in the morning since those two seem to be having a whole lot of up close and personal interaction, lol!
So it makes sense to me, and it’s sexy as hell to share food with your significant other. Plus we know that apples may represent something else of Biblical proportions for those two in the upcoming storyline, which may not be so good:( So I guess the haters can grab ahold of that little tidbit and get a little pleasure or hope, but regardless, they just need to get over it because Richonne is here to stay, sorry, not sorry.
people joke about how miranda ~doesn’t handle rejection well~ if you break up with her in me3, BUT I REMEMBER a time when the majority of people shit all over her romance for being just about sex and not serious and how she doesn’t ‘really’ care about you. i think if i went to the bsn circa 2011 and said that miranda is the only LI to cry if you break up with them i would have been laughed into another universe
Adam: Hufflepuff. Reserved and thoughtful, Adam is gentle when laughing, speaking, and showing his love. Although he’s shy some days and grumpy or sad others, Adam will still make sure that those close to him know he loves and appreciates them by giving out hugs or compliments.
Bruce: Hufflepuff. Although he shows it with jokes and jabs, Bruce’s love for those he cares about knows no bounds. Fiercely protective and willing to fight for those close to him, Bruce is one of the most loyal friends you could ask for. The complete opposite on the Hufflepuff spectrum from Adam (on most days), Bruce is loud and doesn’t mind attention.
Joel: Slytherin. Let’s be real, Joel can judge people pretty hard. Headstrong and determined to follow his passions in life, Joel isn’t the type to be pushed around or let someone try and put a damper on his vibrant personality.
Lawrence: Slytherin. Even though Lawrence has a thirst for knowledge, his strong sense of pride and his firm beliefs put him in Slytherin. He’s someone who knows what he thinks and where he’s going, so don’t stand in his way or disagree.
James: Gryffindor. James loves to make people laugh and be the center of attention. He’s passionate and confident (and very a little stubborn).
Elyse: Ravenclaw. Her eccentric personality and varied passions put her in this house. Although she’s definitely smart, her zany attitude is really what cemented her place in Ravenclaw.
Omar: Ravenclaw. He’s a very creative person, a huge Ravenclaw trait. Omar is quiet around strangers but blossoms around friends, talking openly about his newest projects and ideas.
Matt: Ravenclaw. Matt is caring, loyal, and brave; but his thirst for knowledge and the way he carefully thinks through his responses overpowered these traits when being assigned to this house. The opposite end of the Ravenclaw spectrum from Elyse (book smart rather than eccentric) but still very much a Ravenclaw.
Spoole: Gryffindor. Although he’s definitely kind, Spoole has a mischievous streak and loves riling people up. At first glance, he and James are the complete opposite. It may be hard to see why Sean was put in this house along with an obvious Gryffindor like James, but if you get to know them both you’ll realize they’re not very different at all.
A slightly drunk Stiles putting the stereo on in the loft’s living room when the whole pack left after the pack meeting/bonding night and swaying to the music, moving his hips to the beat… And then he goes looking for Derek who’s finishing up the dishes the pack left for him to do *again*. Stiles taking Derek’s arm and dragging him to the living room and trying to make Derek dance with him but he doesn’t budge, he just crosses his arms across his chest and scowls, shaking his head. So stiles just shrugs and resumes his dancing, all moving hips and ungraceful flailing arms… But then Stiles locks eyes with Derek’s and literally undulate his whole body towards him and Derek’s mouth falls open a little. He does it again and again, until Derek is taking a step forward. They meet halfway. Chest to chest. Arms around the neck, hands resting on hips. And then they dance until Stiles can’t stand up anymore.
