Three dollars and some change

On AO3 and LJ and DW


I fangirl all over the place. Outside of my New York Crime Procedurals (Elementary, White Collar, Unforgettable, Without a Trace, Castle), there are the other Crime Procedurals (Criminal Minds, NCIS, Twin Peaks, etc., etc.,).

Plus the sci-fi (Stargate(s), Doctor Who, Firefly).

And Avengers because seriously.

Everything in this blog is relevant to my interests.

So I’m thinking about that the Barnes & Rogers do on Mother’s Day in Hands of Clay (seeing as that’s the time of year the story started). I figure that they picked up that Sunday and went to the zoo because why not, it wasn’t raining and maybe they’d go for ice cream afterwards (Geeze, Steve, why not just take them to Disneyland while you’re at it) (because I have a meeting tomorrow, but there’s always Father’s Day for that) (oh god shut up before they hear you).

So they went to the zoo, and Natasha simply loved the red pandas and Clint wanted to spend the rest of his life feeding the alpacas and sheep in the barnyard, and James very nearly tricked Steve into milking one of the cows. After a couple of hours, even Clint started sagging and Steve made the executive decision that it was  ice cream time, only first they had  to do the bathroom thing.

Clint went with Steve into the men’s room, while Natasha got a pep talk and directions to not dawdle, then she headed into the women’s washroom while James waited outside for her in as non-creeperish a way as he could.

(Daddy, I am five years old. I am a big girl! She had said indignantly the week before at the library. I can go to the bathroom by myself. And so James had let her, hovering nervously by the drinking fountain until Natasha came back out again, triumphant and smug about how very capable and adult she was and then James ended up carrying her home because it was raining and she didn’t want her shoes to get wet.)

Steve and Clint reappeared, then Natasha came out (yes I washed my hands. Yes, I used soap. Daddy, honestly!) Then it was James’ turn, and so he didn’t get to witness what Steve later would call “the teachable moment from hell.”

It’s been a while since I saw this episode, so I don’t recall if they addressed it or not, but at least you can say one thing for that water Abbie pays for - it contains absolutely zero changes you’ll get cholera from it.

Blonde Sebastian walks a fine line between “oh that’s pretty cute” and “drugged out extra from an Eminem music video”.

My brother went through a hair phase like this back in his early 20s. Let’s just say that pale Eastern European boys ought to tan before trying to pull this off.

(actually, that bottom left picture looks so much like my brother it’s creepy).

Within three days of becoming engaged, I had already been told that I shouldn’t wear my glasses, because they’re not bridal. I was told my cane wasn’t bridal. I was told my eye… was not bridal. And I realized that if I was going to be “bridal” in their eyes, I was going to have to change who I am. I am proudly disabled.

This photo is giving me LIFE

Inspired by this post

(via unfinishedthou)




the study of evidence tending to substantiate the existence of, or the search for, creatures whose reported existence is unproved, as the Abominable Snowman or the Loch Ness monster. The discipline is traditionally viewed as a pseudoscience.

Etymology: from Greek kryptos, “hidden” + zoology; “study of animals”, literally, “study of hidden animals”.

I love you guys you always know the most interesting things. Also I should note that I was just curious and not planning anything.
(1/2) As far as I know (I’m no expert), placing the obit is legal. If you act on the fake death, particularly if you break the law…
(2/2)…(e.g. tax evasion, death certificate), then it would be. And the consequences of placing the obit would be a hassle. But the obit itself is, I think, fine. I think.
That actually makes a lot of sense - like putting a note in the paper versus using that as proof for death benefits. Which is fraud and wrong.
But it looks like it cN be illegal other places
Okay some people are just dicks and really fucking creepy
