Oh I forgot to mention, the street I get off at for work is called Glen and this amuses me greatly.
crazyotterlady89: Glen, is there anything you need to tell me?
GL-N0992: Oh, hello Victoria. How is Texas?
GL-N0992: I think I am improving at...
My hair has now passed the Luke Skywalker phase (with a brief detour at Han Solo shortly after getting it cut) and has entered Sam Winchester...
I have a jooooob :D
It’s all the way in Capitol Hill so I’m gonna have to get up early and get back late, but YAY.
I had a dream last night that I was camping out with my family, and this big white tiger came up out of nowhere and cornered us. I decided not to run because cats chase things, and it didn’t eat me. It did take my arm in its mouth, barely touching it with its teeth, and then it rubbed really hard against me and my sibs and sniffed us all over, and I pet it, and then it walked away a little bit. And then I told mom what happened and was like “wow I got to pet a wild tiger.”
But I was still worried it would eat us at some random moment so I followed my sibs around while we collected firewood.

Check this shit out, someone actually managed to finish making my Tower Game and it looks AMAZING!!!!
Look at that cat. I want to solve a million puzzles for that cat.
my 7 year old son (astutely calling attention to the lack of female leads in action and adventure films).
While watching Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz flirt in POTC On Stranger Tides my son asked me “Why is there always romance in every movie?” He had asked the same question last week when we watched Kirsten Dunst and Toby Maguire have their memorable moment in the rain in Spiderman. He’s 7 and not a fan of kissing scenes. I try to explain that many people, especially adults, enjoy romance so it’s a popular thing in movies.
He responds with “So they always put a girl character in for someone to fall in love with?” And I am floored, because I realize the message Hollywood has sent my child is that you only need to include one female character - and it’s not so she can be the hero. If a 7 year old boy can recognize that women in action films are nothing but a plot device it is time for the film industry to admit they have a problem.
I think I’ve had this conversation with my sons, although less obvious than this one. Which is why this one made me do a double take and remember that it’s been discussed in our house, too. Huh.
Don’t underestimate what kids will notice.
My youngest will tell absolutely everyone how unfair it is that Black Widow doesn’t have her own movie, and that you can’t get an action figure of Maria Hill. He hasn’t seen all of the MCU, he doesn’t own all the action figures - but he’s noticed.
Boys notice, so do girls. And then it becomes normal and we have to UNLEARN IT. Not normalizing it in the first place is a lot easier.
So uh.. Some random aliens have taken over Voyager, made the crew into parts of the holodeck program or something, and are now simulating the crew working at a restaurant/bar of some kind in france during a war..
hahaha i remember that
i watched it all and i still didn’t get it by the end
(In response to your tag) yeah I think my favourite so far is the one where Janeway is Da Vinci’s apprentice
YEAH THAT WAS GREAT
& in general I really love that we get shown that bit of Janeway’s imaginative life through those little holodeck snippets… there’s, what, like, history, period dramas, cheesey Bronte-esque romances? all klinds of things. it’s cool that she gets to have that different aspect to her personality without it ever undermining her as the captain & the ultimate authority of the ship.
so if I haven’t said so already, the presentation went well. I got a lot of positive feedback afterward.
one former vegetarian said she was thinking of going back to it now. And an older woman said she is curious about Asimov robots now. Everyone else just said basically that I presented well or that my thoughts were very interesting and powerful. I guess if I can get people thinking then that is the best thing x3
I liked it when people laughed at the tiny bits of humor
Okay, for one thing, I know you’re not going to eat Victoria because no one but the NSA knows where she is and she must have paid them off or something. I think you are underestimating my compulsion to report news. If you want to blame someone, blame the humans who didn’t put enough forethought into designing me. I’m going to give the inbox back to Thumper now, so stop messaging us.
this made me laugh so I’m reblogging the brilliance xD
