deep_red_bells: ([Expressive] Whaaaaat?)
You know what I don't understand? All these baking pans for brownies that make them all edge brownies. Edge brownies are gross. Come on, anyone sane knows the ones in the center are the best.
deep_red_bells: ([Emote] Oh really?)

There are people in the world that don't understand what this song is about. (Link slightly NSFW, there's a boobie shot)

This scares me.

Seriously, if you're over the age of...I'll be generous. 16. If you're over the age of 16, and you don't know what that song is about--do me a favor and don't drive. Ever. Okay?

(Unrelated note, were I unwed I would have so much sex with Joe Perry. On this floor. This floor right here. I don't care how old he is.)

deep_red_bells: ([Emote] Annoyed)

Okay, so you and you and anyone else that for whatever reason feels like I need constant monitoring, but MOST ESPECIALLY TO YOU. Read this and make damn sure it sticks in your thick, stupid skull.

I am not and nor have I ever been a junkie or an addict or an alcoholic, and I do not appreciate being treated like one. I have taken care of myself since I was sixteen, practically, and since I was eighteen legally. I am not stupid, and I am not going to do anything to put myself or the unborn at risk. I do not need a mommy-and-fetus sitter. You will cease and desist immediately, or you are fired. I'm not kidding even a little bit. Are we very clear? GOOD.


I say again: not kidding even a little bit.

The Five Most Annoying and the Five Most Romantic Couples in literature.

While I agree SO SO VERY much with all of the annoying ones I'm familiar with, I have to say, how in the name of all that is good and holy can you put Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter on the list and NOT consider Henry DeTamble and Clare Abshire from The Time Traveler's Wife one of the top five most romantic couples in literature? I can only assume that whoever wrote it hasn't read the book. Like way too many others.

READ THE GODDAMNED BOOK, PEOPLE. READ. IT. Read it before the stupid movie comes out and ruins it for you!

I so remember now why I hated slaying here. WHERE DO ALL THE FRIGGIN DEMONS COME FROM?!!

I dropped my toast. Why does toast always land butter side down?

I'm tired. 

I need coffee.

And God help me, these are not words I ever EVER thought I'd say, but New York, I miss it.

Are you kidding? Absolutely. And anyone that tries to get all huffy and pissy and says that they haven’t is a liar liar, pants on fire. We all do it, and most of the time we do it consciously. Possibly women do it more often than men, but oh ho, men do it too, trust me.

We smile in ways that promise something, bat our eyelashes, give little touches, move in close so whoever we’re trying to manipulate can feel our body heat. We make our voices as sensual as possible when we plead our case. Sometimes we keep it subtle and sometimes we‘re may more direct about it and caress rather than touch, but always hold out until we‘re sure they‘ve given in. A lot of the time we might not make good on the unspoken promises, but everyone uses their bodies to get what they want. We flirt. Yes, flirting to get what you want is really no different than fucking someone to get what you want. You’re still using sex to get your way.

I don’t think it’s anything to be ashamed of. Okay, maybe sometimes, when it’s taken to the extreme, but generally I don‘t think it really hurts anything. I, personally, have never done it maliciously or just to be a tease. I do it playfully and with someone I’m in a relationship with, so it’s more of a game.

But I’m definitely not gonna take the high and mighty path and say I’ve never done it, cause yeah. I have. And so have you, precious.
deep_red_bells: ([Emote] So very pissed)

You know what? I'm done excusing it. Done. Completely done. You don't get to use your pain as an excuse to hurt others. We all have moods, we all have issues. I own up to mine. It's about damn time you grow the hell up and do the same.

I don't appreciate being treated like an idiot. Yes, you have. I do pick up on things, believe it or not. For whatever reason, you don't want me to come with you this time--and that's fine. It is. I understand, but don't lie to me and tell me otherwise because you think that's what I want to hear, or whatever, because that makes me crazy. That makes me spend days driving myself insane trying to figure out what the hell I've done wrong. And that is not fun.

And don't tell me I'm not at least part of the reason you feel the way you do right now, because I am. Not all of it, maybe not even the biggest part of it, but get this straight, right now: there are parts of what I do that you are not cut out for, and I am not--let me repeat that with some good old fashioned italics and caps, NOT going to apologize for trying to protect you from it. Get over it. I know there has to be some give and take, but that is not something I'm willing to give on.

I'm angry and I'm upset and if I'd just been able to figure out and deal with and talk about what I was feeling and why earlier I wouldn't be so upset right now and I wouldn't have been giving you the cold shoulder and sulking for the last few days, but that's me, that's part of the package of me. I'm willing to work on it. I suck at relationships and I know it and this is not gonna be easy. But I'm trying. This is me trying.

And you can come upstairs now, I won't punch you.

You probably have to pack anyway.


deep_red_bells: ([Slayer] Chosen)

I guilted Ethan into letting me steal some of his books, specifically Watcher diaries. He's not pleased, but he can kiss it, he owes me.

So, the longest lived Slayer recorded was 29 when she died. She lived in Athens, her name was Thessaly (or Thessily? Hard to read this). She was a Slayer for 17 years, and--this is the part of the story that surprises me--died from a poisoned arrow.

Also, the Spartans were werewolves. Badass fucking werewolves. Is anyone really surprised? Didn't think so.

Her Watcher wrote that she was ready to die. That's what she told him. She was 29 years old. She was called when she was twelve. And she was ready to die.

I just can't wrap my head around any of it. I can't fathom being twelve years old and a Slayer, I can't fathom being ready for my life to end, no matter how tough things have been, no matter how much it hurts. I want a reason to get up every morning. Something beyond fighting demons and vampires.

...She was twelve. Twelve years old. What kind of universe, what kind of supposedly wise and merciful gods put the weight of the world on a girl that young?

New Star Wars movie: AKA, stick some cables in the franchise and suck out every little drop of money it has left in it, all the while spitting on your fanbase's childhoods.
