Just another attempt to prevent myself from totally retreating from the world by forcing myself to fling thoughts out into it.

 

A year ago he’d asked Adora Belle Dearheart to be his wife, and she’d explained that in fact he was going to be her husband.

True story…anyone can adapt Sherlock any way they want to because it’s in the public domain…not true of Nancy Drew.


Hmm.Who would play badass Nancy? Scarlet Johanson? ….And is it bad that I’m more interested in a badass Trixie Belden adaptation?

Although the Vetinari’s weren’t quite strangers in Lancre, neither did they really belong. Mister Vetinari, librarian at Lancre Castle under King Verence the I was a quite, precise man and his wife a quiet, hard-working woman.  They had arrived several years prior, reportedly from Twoshirts[1] with very little fuss, and a year later, with only a slightly more amount of fuss, had birthed a son.

What if, in another universe, I deserve you?

Hear me out. There’s this philosopher from the 1890s named William James, and he coined this theory about “the multiverse” which suggests that a hypothetical set of multiple universes comprises everything that can possibly exist simultaneously.

Are you following? The entirety of space, time, matter and energy is all happening at once in different timelines: It’s the idea of parallel universes. Right? So okay, let’s presume the multiverse is real.

Well then, maybe somewhere in those infinite universes is one, or several, where I deserve you.

Maybe there’s a universe out there — happening now — where we end up together and when I close my eyes at night, I’m not dreaming the way a normal person would. Instead I’m seeing flashes of our lives in the multiverse. They’re not simple dreams because I miss you, right? They’re scientific, anachronistic visions.

For instance:

In this universe, I don’t want a family, but maybe in another, I’m more of the type to settle down. Maybe there’s a universe where you hold my hand while I give birth to our daughter in a white hospital room with pink flowers and fuzzy teddy bears on the window sill. Where we take family vacations and pose for dorky pictures in our neon bathing suits on the sands of a Florida beach. Where we curl up to watch a cheesy movie at the end of a long day in our big, green, suburban house once the kids have fallen asleep.

Maybe there’s a universe where we are middle-aged and taking our child to college and bickering over where to put her dresser or what posters she should hang up. Where you kiss her on the forehead ‘goodbye’ and we drive home in contented, proud silence, your fingers grazing my knuckles, our wedding rings glistening. Where we both have gray hair and we laugh and smile and hug and drink lemonade on the porch.

Maybe there’s a universe where that’s the life I want. Where I don’t second guess everything and I’m not afraid of commitment and of the future and of love. Maybe there’s a universe without all the noise in my head and the pride that makes me so fiercely independent and the coldness in my heart that I can turn on and off like a security fence.

Maybe there’s a universe where I’m the right person for you. Where I adore every nice thing you did for me without starting to resent you. A universe where you actually end up with someone who appreciates you. Where no one becomes a doormat. Where both of us can shed our baggage and curiosity and issues. A universe where we’re happy — without wondering if that happiness is some messed-up Jenga game ready to topple at the slightest quiver. A universe where we’re comfortable and sure, and we have cats.

Maybe there’s a universe where we fall asleep next to each other every night like spoons, like two innocent bunnies — my face buried in your neck, hugging your warmth — and we both don’t want anything or anybody else. Where we don’t want more, we just want each other.

Maybe there’s a universe where I don’t covet so much all the time and where I’m content and where I don’t wonder about picking up and moving to Japan without saying anything to anyone and where at this very juncture, I can just know I’ll always want to come home and cook dinner with you.

If you think of it all this way, then it’s like neither of us did anything wrong.

You just found me in the wrong universe. That’s all. This is, as they say, the darkest timeline. Everywhere else, nay, “everywhen” else — us in the Civil War, us in Ancient Egypt, us in the swinging ’60s — we are happy.

If this theory holds, well, by the law of averages, there had to be one universe — just this one — where we don’t end up together. Here and now just happens to be it. If you think of it this way, nothing is our fault.

So see, that explains everything. We’re not together anymore because of the multiverse.

Well, isn’t that comforting?

If you’re sad, do like I do and just think of the other ‘verses. The ones where I believe in love and where I don’t hate myself and where I never feel the need to kamikaze relationships. A universe where we can have nice things. It’s helpful, right?

Because you could have loved me forever. And maybe in another universe, I let you.

Maybe In Another Universe, I Deserve You, by Gaby Dunn (via tywin)

Beautiful. The starting sentence threw me, but the rest explains it and makes it bug me less.
Because while relationships aren’t about “deserving” each other, I get where she’s coming from.

These cupcakes are amazing. I wish they had a link back to whoever made them, they deserve some admiration. SOOOOO coooool *u*

That cute picture up there is from the rescue group I volunteer at/foster for: Macon Purrs N Paws.
They’re the only cat focused rescue group in Macon, GA- and most of the entire Middle Georgia Area. Sure there’s rescues that do both cats and dogs but most rescues are dog focused and Purrs N Paws is the only cat focused one around.
That said, however, they’ve recently come into some trouble- that trouble being that the property manager of where they’re located at is kicking them out. They want to turn the shopping area the rescue has been located in for the past three years into an ‘upscale retail’ center and have given Purrs N Paws until October to get out.
That means the shelter is either going to have to adopt all the cats out and become foster home based only, have the cats taken by animal control because they have no place, or purchase a new commercial building for the cats.
We want to do the latter. Unfortunately though their funds are tight- they already have to pay vet bills monthly and are still paying rent and utilities until October. They don’t have the money to purchase a building to own- and most buildings won’t rent out to shelters.
They are, however, looking into purchasing a new building but it’s 64,900 dollars- and that’s with the price reduced. Commercial buildings in Macon aren’t cheap- and it’s gonna take a lot of fundraising for them to be able to get that money.
That’s where you guys, hopefully, come in. Purrs N Paws does have a gofundme page- plus a paypal! (maconpurrs@gmail.com)
The building they’re looking into purchasing is 2,564 square feet and the listing says each square foot would cost about 26 dollars each. If you guys could help by donating enough money to purchase one square foot, or even half of a square foot, and then send this around so other people can help I think they’d have the money in no time! 
Please help out a great rescue, guys. ): They’re so great and these cats deserve a good life and a chance at being adopted. They’re all owner surrenders- or dumped- or rescued from High Kill shelters in the area where they would have been put down. Purrs N Paws does so much for these cats- they deserve a new building where they won’t have property managers pushing the rent costs up whenever they please.

Clean up      

syncreticimage:

angelsamongyou:

*goes to great clips.
Me: can I just get a clean up?
Guy: sure you can.
*”cleanup” over.
Me: *looks like a Beatle”

Hey now, the Beatles are/were pretty dang snazzy looking.
…Also, if you comb it right when it is freshly washed you should be able to…

I gotcha, and figured it was probably like that, I just have this ridiculous pressing need to point out upsides to things like that. (I also have to rein in an impulse to point out potential problems, it just is really hard for me to not look at multiple angles on things and even harder to notice these things are about to erupt from my face)
