words with followers

when I lay my head on your chest
I slow my breathing
until our hearts beat at the same time


so that between each breath
there is a moment of silence,
like time is standing still


just for us
and though it only lasts a moment
I pretend it is forever.

say what you want but parker cannon drop kicking that girl off the stage was fucking iconic

So much love ~

I started this network a year ago with absolutely no expectation that it would be this successful. The girls in the network became family in such a short amount of time and we’re all so close that I can honestly say that I have no idea where i’d be without them.

I never thought I’d connect on a personal level with people I’ve never met! We all look out for each other, tell secrets, and even share things not many know about us in real life.

Being in this network makes me feel safe. Knowing I can call these girls my friends/sisters gives me so much joy even when we’re states apart, or half a world apart.

We range in race, age, destination, religion… but that doesn’t matter to us. This network isnt just about gaining and connecting with followers. Its also about growing and helping each other grow.

I honestly would not be surprised if my girls show up at my wedding one day or even get to be bridesmaids. They’re that amazing. We always have each others back, always there to comfort each other, give advice, make each other laugh (literally tears of laughter), and we bond/fan girl over soooo many things. (bachelor being one of them omg)

25k+ followers ago, before we launched, before I recruited, I didnt know many people on here to start a network nor even know how to run one in the first place but these girls made is easy and fun. I love you girls!

And for any prospected applicants, I highly recommend you apply! We’re so eager to get to know you! 

Always your admin,

Ok. Idea. EVERYONE hear me out.

So…there had been A LOT. A LOT A LOT A LOT of hate going around. In the world we live in today, the last thing we all need is to go on line where all you want to do is just talk about your day, or enjoy watching gifs of your favorite ships but alas you are slapped left to right with hate. That isn’t helping and many people, including myself, go onto Tumblr to relax and forget about all the shit we have to deal with in the real world. So, I was thinking we should start tending #FriendlyFriday. EVERY FRIDAY on tumblr, everyone, not matter who you ship, don’t ship, like, love, hate (you get the point) REFRAIN from posting HATE OF ANY KIND! On Fridays we should try to spread positivity, kind words or messages to our followers and fellow bloggers. It really wouldn’t kill us to be nice on Tumblr and stop throwing hate out left and right, EVERY SINGLE DAMN DAY. Would y'all be willing to give this a shot? (We can make it every other Friday, or maybe for a period of time on Friday, what ever strikes your fancy). I think it would help keep Tumblr a place of positivity where we can spread love and support each other. Reblob with thoughts, I’m curious if y'all are willing to give this a go!

hades is the smell of the cold winter mornings, the smell of the pavement after it has rained, and the lingering scent left on your clothes after a camp fire. he holds your hand as you cross the street, watches the moon with you, and is sitting beside you on long car rides. he is both the coldness of your room at night and the warmth of your bed after a long day.

aphrodite is the smell of rose petals and your newest fragrance. she is the smell of the fog after a nights rain and the odour given off while romantic sex is taking place. she is the taste of your lovers lips and the feeling of your own skin after a shower. she is the butterflies in your stomach, and always has your name on the tip of her tongue. she is the one who sends you your next relationship and ends the bad ones. 

poseidon is the smell of the moist air as the water rolls over the rocks near a lake. he is the smell of the mud in a play ground and the scent of your newest body wash. he’s the one who stares back at you as you stare beyond the horizon of the sea. he is the feeling you get when you jump into a pool after being in a hot tub or sauna. 

apollo is the smell of breakfast cooking in the morning and wet wood. he is the split second of pain in your eyes from the light after being in the dark for long periods. he is the summers day spent at a park, and the excitement of remembering lyrics of your new favourite song.

artemis is the natural smell of your hair. she is both the smell of bark on a tree and your fingers after picking up a wet rock. she gives you grass stains on your pants, and blows your hair in the wind. she finds your favourite places to go and guards your place to sit. 

ares is the smell of your sweat. he smells like sand and is the scent of your father. he feels like slate and the pain of a bruise. he is the one who pushes you that one extra step, and forces you to lose your cool.

zeus smells like fire. he smells like the cold wind and your freshly washed sheets. he is the one who makes your heart pound and is the one who triggers your anxieties. he is the booming of loud music and the cracking of the floor boards at night. he watches you as you walk home in the rain.

and though you hurt me
I cannot regret being yours
for a time
because you’ve helped me realize
I deserve so much more


(so I thank you).

“Ted... ever wonder why some words are funnier than others?”

Ted the Animator: “…no?”

Carl the Animator: “Like, take ‘mule deer.’ Why are mule deer funnier than most other animals?”

Ted the Animator: “Are they really, though?”

Carl the Animator: “Yes! I’ve done a lot of mule deer thinking, lately.”

Ted the Animator: “…that’s a sentence you don’t hear every day.”

Carl the Animator: “Take a look at one. Visually, at best, they’re just marginally-funnier than a regular deer… but the phrase ‘mule deer’? That puts it over the top.”

Ted the Animator: “I’m not sold. Give me an example.”

Carl the Animator: “Well, let’s say someone is advertising hot sauce. Saying it’s ‘hot enough to kill a deer?’ Not funny.”

Ted the Animator: “Nope. Not at all.”

Carl the Animator: “Now, ‘hot enough to kill a mule deer?

Ted the Animator: “…that’s kinda funny. Wait, why is that funny?”

Carl the Animator: “I KNOW, RIGHT?!”

Ted the Animator: “…after googling them, you find phrases like ‘1000+ images about mule deer on Pinterest,’ and somehow that’s so bizarre it’s definitely funny.”

Carl the Animator: “Now, try ‘2017 mule deer calendar.’”

Ted the Animator: “…it might just be because it’s really late at night… but that’s freakin’ hilarious to me right now.”

Carl the Animator: “’Mule deer’ just gets funnier the more times you say it.”

Ted the Animator: “Is it because it’s so specific? A combination of words you hear independently, but almost never together?”

Carl the Animator: “I’m still tryin’ to analyze it all. There are also inherently-funny single words, like ‘Popemobile.’”

Ted the Animator: “That’s juxtaposition, alright. Combine the pious-sounding word “Pope’ and the silly suffix ‘-mobile,’ and you get instant comedy.” 

Carl the Animator:And, it doesn’t hurt that the Popemobile always looks ridiculous, too.”

Ted the Animator: “Phrases like ‘potato juice’ use juxtaposition similarly.”

Carl the Animator: “…ewwwwwwwwwwww.”

Ted the Animator: “Gross, certainly… but that moment when your brain processes that yes, it is in fact a real thing you could theoretically acquire, triggers humor responses.”

Carl the Animator: “…of course, we are forgetting what is quite possibly the funniest phrase known to man.”

Ted the Animator: “Hold that thought, I’m on my last swig of coffee.”

Carl the Animator:…cat diaper.

Ted the Animator: *spittake*

Carl the Animator: “Sorry. I had to.”

Ted the Animator: “…you’re the worst, and cat diapers are the worst, and I’d scowl at you but my mouth hurts from smiling too much.”

Carl the Animator: “That’s the magic of mule deer and cat diapers, Ted.”

I am sure one day
I will see you again
but how can I know it was real?
everywhere I look
you are there,
haunting me.


sometimes I even
see you in my own reflection.

Every day, Words With Friends shows me a “match of the day” person they say they hand-picked *just for me*, and want me to play against.

The suggestions are priceless.

First of all, roughly 50% are grandmas.

Another 20% are middleaged guys with sunglasses who reeeaaally like to take selfies in their cars.

#1 looks to be in a driver’s seat, whereas #2 is in a passenger sea– … wait, are they in the same car? 

Are they double-car-sunglasses-selfie buddies?!

I’m not entirely sure what’s happening in this photo… which one’s Jolene? Is she the too-bright one in the foreground with no face?

…also, where on earth are they? Tile floor, some kind of seating, floor-mounted computer kiosk… I’m so confused.

At least this shot makes sense.

These nice people just wanted to take a selfie with the damp pavement outside their house. I mean, hey, we’ve all been there.

At first, I thought the app was just suggesting some guy named Steve, but then I looked at the photo, and – plot twist – it appears Steve might actually be his last name.

This also raises the question of what mother decided to name their kid Tyler Steve.

…and the same goes for the mother that named her son Zyngawf 34260864.

Poor, poor Pippifuzz. They’re just a ghostly outline, doomed forever to haunt the halls of Words With Friends suggestions.

Brandon doesn’t have it much better, seeing as he’s a cloud of mist next to a bridge. At least he has a semi-corporeal body, unlike poor Pippifuzz.


Fred… Fred’s seen some hard times.

…also, yes, the Bumble wants to play Words With Friends with me. I’m flattered.

As does this dog.

As does–…

…wait… Gandalf?

GANDALF!

YOU’RE ALIVE

GANDALF IS ALIVE AND WANTS TO PLAY WORDS WITH FRIENDS WITH ME
