last week I applied to a tea store called teavana and on the application it asked why I left my old job at a pizza place and I said “I guess working in fast food just wasn’t my cup of tea” and it’s been a week and I’m still laughing at myselfupdate: I got the job
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
I just wanted this on my blog as a general explanation for my hardcore support of a bisexual john watson, this was brought on by a tumblr user’s post that says “so, just wondering, have you ever heard a bisexual person vehemently and indignantly insist “i’m not gay!” in an offended manner when accused of dating a person of the same sex? just wondering.” and while it was that post that prompted this post, I’ve seen similar posts in the past and these thoughts have been brewing for awhile - this is just me and my thoughts, not directed at anyone specifically.
So here we go. Yeah. Yeah, I have heard a bisexual person do exactly what’s described in that post. And here’s some crazy spoilers: it was me. It was me during high school, when my (male, going as friends) prom date asked me if I was a lesbian because I’d been spending all of my time with my “best friend” who, and I know this is just truly shocking, was actually my girlfriend. But he asked me this in the middle of a crowded hallway, and of course, I wasn’t going to just out both of us, so the response was to loudly and clearly say “I’m not gay!!”
Fast forward five years, I’ve gotten over my own internalized biphobia enough to identify as bisexual instead of straight with an exception (sound familiar?), I’m still dating my best friend/girlfriend, I’m still closeted except for on tumblr and to no more than 5 select IRL friends, and here’s the kicker: “I’m not gay” is still the default response I give if I feel like I’m in a situation where it’s not safe or comfortable for me to be out.
Like it or not, this is a situation that happens to real bisexual people (and of course other members of the lgbtqiap+ community). My support for a bisexual john watson isn’t because “eheheheheh that makes my ship float gay boys yay I wanna see two dudes fucking.” To imply that my convictions and personal experience come down to solely that is so, so insulting. My support for a bisexual john comes from a place where I deeply crave accurate, non offensive, open bisexual representation in media, and I truly think that BBC’s sherlock has a fantastic opportunity to create that representation in the form of one of the most famous fictional characters of all time.
Am I a shipper? You betcha. But I’m a person first, and a fangirl second. The accusation/attitude that fangirls have decided that John is bi just to fit their ship is frankly ridiculous, when time and time again I see stories like mine, of people who want to see people that represent themselves in media, and not just in lgbtqiap+ niche media, but mainstream media. Anyway, I never know how to end these ranting posts of mine, so thanks for listening, and please direct all questions to my publicist. :)
David Letterman is going to have a fascinating guest on The Late Night Show October 8th…
That’s right! It’s the blue-haired diva herself HATSUNE MIKU!!!!
The official MIKU EXPO Twitter announced that the popular variety late night talk show, starring David Letterman and Paul Shaffer, will have Miku perform to show off the technologies of how a live concert would work. This is likely to promote the MIKU EXPO event which takes place a few days after that show.
It’s good to know that Miku is expanding to places we never thought imaginable!
(Info taken from MikuFan)
w hat the fuck is happening
my favorite thing about this is that it leads to one of two equally perfect conclusions:
a) david letterman has absolutely no idea what a vocaloid is and will have to suffer through his own talk show being briefly taken over by a chirping holographic cartoon robot teenager using technology he only vaguely understands, or
b) david letterman currently is/will soon be a fan of hatsune miku
the first time sherlock gets stung by a bee he thinks he’s dying and he makes a huge ordeal out of it while john patiently and silently pulls the sting out, puts ointment on it and forces sherlock to wear hello kitty bandaids as punishment muttering about bees and “how could they betray me” while john rolls his eyes and drinks his tea in silence
The first sip of tea is always the hardest.
that isn’t supposed to be inspirational, I’m just stating it’s fucking nerve-racking waiting for it to touch your lips and potentially having it melt your face off
Right so im walking home and I see this guy rolling a cigarette under a streetlamp and when he clicked his lighter THE FUCKING STREETLIGHT WENT OUT
I stopped in my tracks and stared at this guy who looks up at me then to his lighter and hes as surprised as me then he takes his thumb off the trigger and THE STREETLIGHT TURNS BACK ON
HE GAVE THE MOST SURPRISED LOOK OF ANYONE EVER AND THEN SHOUTED “LATER MUGGLES” AND FUCKING RAN OFF
AM I DREAMING
