And If You Shoot, You Better Hit Your Mark

Mostly a collection of humor and cool things based on my bad taste and some art to boot. A lot of Homestuck (Sorry), Pokemon, Gravity Falls, and whatever else is in season.

@superethanworld

Okay first of all you are the cutest human being on the planet because I want to do these asks but I’m too shy to reblog them but ANYWAY:

"…This particular teen has, over the years, taken a KEEN INTEREST in her universe’s CREATURE COLLECTION GAME SERIES and spends plenty of time DESIGNING HER OWN CREATURES. She lives in the company of many FISH and CATS and considers herself something of an AMATUER BAKER, possibly in homage to one of her many FICTICIOUS FRIENDS."

Fave Redrom: DirkJane or DaveJane. Jane n Striders just kind of kills me in the best way. Really though anything where Jane’s and whoever she gets to be shipped with are happy.

Fave Palerom: Hmmm… that’s a toughie. There’s a LOT that I like/accept. Maybe Callie<>Roxy or KarKan?

Fave Rarepair: DaveJane isn’t all that common but I don’t know if that gets to count twice… I am kind of growing fond of the Erikan (Pale or Red) that’s been showing up on my dash lately though.

Fave Trickster design: Dang son you got me good here because there are so so sooo many great fanmade ones. I feel like there was a peppermint Kankri somewhere that made me happy. Knowing me I’d be more the kind to get caught up in my own if I had them, haha.

Which Characters are you most like: Mmmm. I feel like there’s a good bit of Callie and Jade in me, with some sides of Dave and John.

Which Character would I most likely get along with: Probably Nepeta haha I feel like there would be a lot of good ship talk there and I’m down with cat puns too. Heaven forbid I would end up accidentally befriending Aranea and not know how to gently let her down, and I would get along with Karkat too though I don’t know if Karkat would get along with me. He like Jade well enough though soo… 

Which characters do I relate to most: No one character ever really spoke to me that much but I feel like the alphas on a whole are like my spirit clan or something. I feel like Fef might actually be a good choice for this? There’s this sense of looming expectations to rise to in my life (a la Glyb’golyb or however it’s spelled haha) but at the same time she’s really positive and reasonable. Also maybe alt timeline me is some kind of wonderful and benevolent ruler. We just don’t know.

After learning my flight was detained 4 hours,
I heard the announcement:
If anyone in the vicinity of gate 4-A understands any Arabic,
Please come to the gate immediately.

Well—one pauses these days. Gate 4-A was my own gate. I went there.
An older woman in full traditional Palestinian dress,
Just like my grandma wore, was crumpled to the floor, wailing loudly.
Help, said the flight service person. Talk to her. What is her
Problem? we told her the flight was going to be four hours late and she
Did this.

I put my arm around her and spoke to her haltingly.
Shu dow-a, shu- biduck habibti, stani stani schway, min fadlick,
Sho bit se-wee?

The minute she heard any words she knew—however poorly used—
She stopped crying.

She thought our flight had been canceled entirely.
She needed to be in El Paso for some major medical treatment the
Following day. I said no, no, we’re fine, you’ll get there, just late,

Who is picking you up? Let’s call him and tell him.
We called her son and I spoke with him in English.
I told him I would stay with his mother till we got on the plane and
Would ride next to her—Southwest.

She talked to him. Then we called her other sons just for the fun of it.

Then we called my dad and he and she spoke for a while in Arabic and
Found out of course they had ten shared friends.

Then I thought just for the heck of it why not call some Palestinian
Poets I know and let them chat with her. This all took up about 2 hours.

She was laughing a lot by then. Telling about her life. Answering
Questions.

She had pulled a sack of homemade mamool cookies—little powdered
Sugar crumbly mounds stuffed with dates and nuts—out of her bag—
And was offering them to all the women at the gate.

To my amazement, not a single woman declined one. It was like a
Sacrament. The traveler from Argentina, the traveler from California,
The lovely woman from Laredo—we were all covered with the same
Powdered sugar. And smiling. There are no better cookies.

And then the airline broke out the free beverages from huge coolers—
Non-alcoholic—and the two little girls for our flight, one African
American, one Mexican American—ran around serving us all apple juice
And lemonade and they were covered with powdered sugar too.

And I noticed my new best friend—by now we were holding hands—
Had a potted plant poking out of her bag, some medicinal thing,

With green furry leaves. Such an old country traveling tradition. Always
Carry a plant. Always stay rooted to somewhere.

And I looked around that gate of late and weary ones and thought,
This is the world I want to live in. The shared world.

Not a single person in this gate—once the crying of confusion stopped
—has seemed apprehensive about any other person.

They took the cookies. I wanted to hug all those other women too.
This can still happen anywhere.

Not everything is lost.

SIGNAL BOOST!!!!

This video might be the most clever way to raise money for dogs in need, because all you need to do is watch it.

"Just by watching these puppies, you’re raising money for dogs in need," says the narrator in the video above. "You see, if a video goes viral, YouTube shares the money they made from advertising with whoever made the video, and in this case, every dollar we earn will go toward feeding, treating and finding homes for dogs who haven’t been as lucky as us."

The video comes from The Pedigree Adoption Drive, and ends by imploring viewers to share because the more views received, the more money will be raised.

So share this video. You know, for the dogs.

My cat literally just caught two different snakes within like five minutes of each other. This was the second, which I had to go release. What a cutie! It couldn&#8217;t have been more than eight inches long.

You know what would be great? If I could finish my classwork that’s due today. Wouldn’t it? I mean, the site’s only been down for like four days and, you know, the last time I checked my email before it went down I didn’t have the necessary materials to work with, but no biggie

right?
