I have such a pet peeve about people who can’t correctly use the words “poisonous” and “venomous”. I try not to be an asshole about it, but I can’t help myself.
I’m at a coffee shop and someone was talking about how he had a run in with a poisonous snake, and I asked him where in Japan he’d been. He was confused, and I told him that the only poisonous snake known to us (that is, the only snake that is harmful to you if you ingest it) is the Japanese garter snake. He didn’t like that.
I haven’t been this active on Tumblr in over a year.
Everyone do this for me now
Just so my friends are prepared, I’m totally doing this for some of you. I’m starting right now.
6, 18, 25, 43, 88, 107
6. Four turn-offs:
I’ll do two physical and two personality: Hairy backs and stubby fingers, and egoism and ignorance.
18. Do I use sarcasm?:
Oh, no. Never. Nuh uh, that is so not me.
25. Ever done a prank call?:
Okay, so when I was in middle school, it was back when a lot of people still relied on landlines, right? And the school still gave every student one of those directories with every other students’ home number in them. And well, I was a little shit when I was in middle school, and my best friend and I would hole up in her bedroom watching horror movies and we would pick a random number and *67 before calling, and hold the receiver to the TV speaker during a death scene and scare the shit out of the people we were calling. It was great.
43. How long does it take me to get ready in the morning?:
When I actually have to get up and get ready in the morning, it takes me about…ten minutes. Like literally the time between me waking up and me getting out the front door is ten minutes. I’m low-maintenance like that. Or ugly. Some might just say ugly.
88. Bought condoms?:
I’ve never bought condoms. I always told my men “bring your own goddamn condom because I am not wasting any money on you”… Wow, that made me sound really bitchy and whorish. Trust me, though; that is not the worst thing I’ve ever said to a guy I was sleeping with.
107. Been on the computer for five hours straight?:
Yes. Yes, I have. On multiple occasions.
Photographer Jaime Moore‘s daughter Emma recently turned 5 years old. Naturally, being a photographer, Moore wanted to commemorate the event for her daughter by putting together a cute photo shoot for her, so she turned to the Internet for inspiration.
Much to her chagrin, however, something like 95 percent of the ideas she ran into were actually the same idea: how to dress up your 5-year-old as a Disney Princess. Moore wasn’t keen on that, so she went another way. Instead of dressing her daughter up as a made up ideal, an “unrealistic fantasy” as she put it, she chose to dress and pose her daughter as some of the greatest women throughout history.
The point was to convey to little Emma that she could be anything she wants to be. As Moore explains it on her blog
“My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants and that’s what REALLY matters.”
The resulting photo series has Emma dressed and posed as five influential women from the history books, with a presidential photo thrown in at the end. [x]

Am I the only one that peed their pants watching the S.H.I.E.L.D trailer?
I had a DW dream last night that was really like an episode of DW. I was the Doctor’s companion, and we were in the lobby of this building that was supposed to have “great shopping” - that’s why we were there; to take a break from adventuring and shop.
Well, the man was walking through the lobby and he ran full into me and knocked us both over, and I got confrontational with him because he’d ruined…something (I can’t remember what) and I insisted he give me his information so I could get in touch with him so he could pay for a new whatever-it-was. He finally told me, reluctantly, that his name was [I don’t remember] and he worked on the sixth floor and I could find his information there.
But something felt odd about it so I told the Doctor to wait while I went up alone. I got in the elevator, hit 6, but it took me to the 7th floor. A floor entirely dedicated to the sale of umbrellas - there were umbrellas of every size, colour, and style everywhere. And I met a man in a wheelchair, with a long tube stretching from the chair throughout the building, and he told me I was on the 7th floor. The elevator never stopped at the 6th floor. So I found the stairs and I went down to the 6th floor.
The 6th floor was peaceful. It was full of smoke clouds of different sizes and colours and smells and consistencies. And I met this woman in a red shoulder wrap who took me to a place called the Ego Room. They were burning something that made a cloud of pure white smoke that smelled like raspberries and sandalwood. And the other woman in the room put me in a sort of trance and told me that this white cloud would stay in front of my eyes so I wouldn’t be able to see the rest of the world as clearly and I would focus more on myself and recognize that I am the most important person in the world. Basically, she was turning me into an egoist.
Then they let me go and I went back to the lobby, but I couldn’t find the Doctor anywhere. (I’d later found out that the screwdriver was picking up some screwy readings and he’d gone off on his own to inspect them.) So I tried to go back to the 6th floor but, of course, the elevator wouldn’t stop there. Instead, it took me all the way up to the 9th floor - which was also called the 90 Days floor - and everyone there had chosen to die. And they rented these little boxy rooms to spend their last 90 Days in and could create whatever reality they wanted in those boxes. The woman in the red wrap was there too and she said “well, we just keep running into you all over the place, don’t we?” and that’s when she figured out I was with someone, investigating.
I managed to slip away and back to the 6th floor, but she’d warned them I was coming and they were waiting for me. I turned around and saw the Doctor running toward me, and when I turned back the woman that had been in the Ego Room with me blew some sort of powder that knocked me unconscious. I was vaguely aware of fighting around me.
When I finally got my eyes open, the Doctor had dropped this device that we’d found on a previous mission. It was a little box that emitted a pulse that was the alien equivalent to a stun gun. He’d just abandoned it. I saw him carrying a teenager away, leaving me, so I picked up the box and zapped him with it before I passed out again. The next time I woke up, me, the Doctor, and the teenager were safe outside while the whole building burned in the background.
I asked the Doctor why he left me and he looked at me like he was studying me, and told me that no one was bothering me - they weren’t going to hurt me, and the teenager was in more imminent danger. Then I asked why he’d dropped the device and he said it wasn’t his technology and at best he could control the pulse it emitted, but it was also loaded with alien code that could be triggered at anytime and set off an invasion if the original creators of the device ever decided to hone in on it.
Apparently he’d given it a little boost with the sonic and the aliens HAD invaded, just long enough to destroy the building.
….Okay, so maybe it couldn’t be a real DW episode, but it was pretty vivid and awesome to me when I was experiencing it.
