Now Playing Tracks

LMAO I was just thinking about this film earlier. The only “biblical” film I wanna see this Easter.

The only “religious” movie I watch every Easter without fail for the last 10 years (as of this year) is The Wicker Man (original, not the crappy remake).  I know that movies about Beltane and not Easter, but the tradition was started ten years ago for reasons that are too long and old to get into.  Suffice it to say, I’m the only one of the original people who watched this yearly for those reasons that still watches it for the holiday.  


“The boy was a huge X-Men fan, and Cyclops was his favorite. The scene originally called for Cyclops to look at the train schedule, but according to Bryan Singer the boy could not stop smiling at James Marsden. Finally, during one shot, Marsden just looked back at him and smiled, much to the boy’s delight. Bryan Singer liked the idea so much, he kept it in the film, and told the actress playing the boy’s mother to react the way she did.”

And post 3 of roses and flowers.  Believe it or not, all of those yellow roses I’ve taken photos of are on that bush there — they’re TINY when you see them where they’re growing.  In the last post, there were some pink roses that are almost as tiny as the yellow.  The daisies are African daisies (for anyone who’s interested), and that last two photos are some sort of Jade-type succulent, but I’ve never seen flowers on them before.  






Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Kids who are smarter than adults though.

I’ve reblogged this before, but I do see a harmful assumption in one of the comments — “most grown male politicians.”  I’m not arguing that there are some who are probably so behind the times that they still only buy Easy Bake Ovens for their daughters.  However, I’ve met MORE women who want to nail their kids into gender roles than I have men.  Women who want their daughters to be ballerinas and cheerleaders and wear pink and be girly, and they buy their sons boyish t-shirts with trucks and bulldozers and boys toys.  I can think of honestly two men that I’ve known that were all about gender roles and over a dozen women who stuck pink bows onto their daughter’s heads so that no one mistook their bald little girls for boys.  

We don’t just need a re-education of men about gender roles, but women need to be re-educated, too.  Society as a whole.  Humans who are still so afraid to live without labels because “that’s what humans do — label things.”  

This little girl is smart, and I hope she grows up to smack other moms with rolled up newspapers the moment they mention that their precious daughters are going to be ballerinas and their sons are going to be athletes.  Especially when the girls and boys express the opposite interests.

The only thing I can think when I see this is…Hugh Jackman originally asked James Marsden to play that role of the guy kissing him…*sigh* 

If I could be like Wolverine and go back in time I would have to explain to James the error of his ways. He and Hugh would’ve been dynamic together in these roles. *sigh* Oh Jimmy, I love you, but alas when Hugh Jackman asks you to be his boyfriend in a role you say YES!!!

I would have sold my then-husband to pay for the tickets to see Boy from Oz had James not been attached to another project and been able to agree to be Hugh’s boyfriend in this musical.  I don’t know if anyone would have paid me enough for my ex, but it would have gotten me at least something to see that fantastic duo.


no no these are all sweet peppers. i uses these plants to supplement my like EVERYDAY NEED for tons of sweet peppers for everyday cooking. and it just depends, but they…

Huh.  I’ll have to look into those.  I love the flavor of bell peppers, and I don’t mind them in spaghetti sauce or on pizza IF they’re cooked enough that they’re not super crunchy.  I don’t know what it is, but when I crunch into raw bell peppers, it feels the same to my teeth as biting into aluminum foil.  

Serranos are hotter as a rule than jalapenos, so yeah, avoid those.  I used to avoid habaneros because everyone I knew (including the ex) would rush to the bathroom after eating  habaneros, and I didn’t want to experience fire ass like that.  Then tygerinthenight and I decided to try it, and it didn’t bother either of us.  But it was a lot hotter, and that was only after sauteing it butter then removing all the pepper from the butter that was then poured over the chicken while cooking.
