Speaking of Rise of the Guardians, I had a thought. Jack’s home, more or less, is the lake.
I’m just imagining when the others visit. Someone would ask, “Why here?”
He’d say, “Well, this is where I first showed up. And also where I died.”
Can you imagine their reactions to that?
So I finally got around to watching Rise of the Guardians. I love it! I really want to read the books now. <3
Bunny is awesome. And since I found out he’s actually a pooka, I keep imagining him as Frank from Donnie Darko or Harvey from Harvey.
And I loved how they incorporated Chris Pine’s expressions and movements into Jack Frost.
Just, ah, I love this movie to bits.
someone on facebook posted this intending it to be negative but instead it’s INCREDIBLE. go girl scouts
I WOULD LIKE TO EAT MORE OF THESE COOKIES PLEASE AND THANK
It’s so funny that this is supposed to be negative criticism.
*spends entire income on thin mints
true story: people were enraged that a young transgirl was accepted into the girl scouts. they released a statement saying they will accept girls of any gender, shape or size.
this is awesome!
Such a difference between the girl scouts and the boy scouts. It’s terribly sad.
Take note, boy scouts.
What do you sell? Not delicious cookies that promote equality and human rights, that’s for sure
Complete and utter win!
This man overcame so much, became the first black president of South Africa, became a world leader, and became a person of hope, peace, and triumph.
He lived to 95, and in those 95 years, he did so much that it’ll take a thousand to record them all.
Rest easy, Mr. Mandela. You earned it. Your spirit lives on, and will forever live on, in billions of people worldwide.
I miss Monkey Wards. =(
And about half of the American contigent of Tumblr has no idea what I’m talking about I’m sure.
It was a nice department store that actually called Montgomery Wards, and it went out of business in the early 2000s.
No, I don’t know why that was its nickname, but it was.
Now I can’t stop picturing this version of Holmes & Watson. Like the Mary Russell books but with John and Mary’s daughter who just gets called “Watson Jr.” all the time. :D
HYDROCODONE MIDNIGHT THEATRE PART I FORGET, FIVE MAYBE: SHERLOCK AND WATSON.

I don’t usually have to make calls to customer centers, but when I do, I always try to be as kind and as friendly as I can. I just got done with a call to Tracfone because I needed a new SIM card, and I got Maria, and she was absolutely lovely. I thanked her by name at the end of it, and I think I surprised her that I remembered it because it was quiet for a few seconds.
Last week I had to place a call on behalf of my grandmother because the stuff we ordered from a catalog didn’t arrive, instead we got two things we didn’t order. So I called and the woman (and here is where I feel bad, because I didn’t catch her name) apologized and resent our order. I told her it was okay, things happen (especially during the holiday season), and would she like us to send the stuff back?
No, she said, just keep it. I asked if she was sure, and she said yes. I thanked her again and to have a great day.
I don’t get why people are such assholes to customer service people. They have a generally hard job, and it’s not their fault if someone messes up in packing or wherever, so show some kindness, please.
And this goes for all workers, really, in-person, over the phone, or online. I just don’t understand why people are such jerks. It costs nothing to say ‘please’ or ‘thank you,’ and even if it doesn’t turn out your way, 99.9% it’s not their fault and they have no control over the situation. And when it is their “fault”? Usually it’s you that’s the problem, not them.
Just try to be kind to people is all I’m saying.
For my fellow retail workers I am so sorry for you guys. Stay strong!
Dollar Tree did here, they had doorbusters and everything. It was ridiculous.
I’m glad it wasn’t everywhere!
Dollar Tree had Black Friday Doorbusters.
Dollar Tree. Where 95% of everything is already a dollar or less.
And now they sent me a Cyber Monday e-mail, where they’re having Cyber Week Doorbusters.
This is really getting out of hand.
