Day 21 - Movie OTP

Leia Organa and Han Solo - Star Wars

Okay, for those of you who don’t know the story of how I managed to see Return of the Jedi in the theatre during it’s first run, here it is: My mom and her parents got in a huge fight during a Christmas party.  Because my grandparents live 1+ hours away from where we were living at the time, The Mother wanted to go somewhere to cool off so she could sneak back into her parents’ place and sleep, and deal with the fallout the next morning, rather than stay up fighting more.  (Which TOTALLY would have happened.)  Now, The Mother is not a movie person.  She isn’t.  Honestly, she hates the genre.  However, she has a 3-year-old child, it was late December, and not much stays open past 6:30 in moderately-sized-town-Iowa.  Her options were bar (bad) or movie theater (less bad).

As she tells it, given that the show started after 9pm, I’d conk out in the first twenty minutes and she could ignore it while she sat and stewed.  The only miscalculation in this plan was that because I was in a new place and surrounded by a bunch of people (seriously, the theater was full, and the movie had been in theaters for, like six months), I stayed pretty alert and managed to easily follow the story.  And OH MY GOD was the movie formative for me!  (I didn’t know there were earlier films for another ten years)  Tiny, sassy, brunette lady being all “I know.” when a dude tells her he loves her?  Dude being all “I LOVE YOU AND I WANT YOU HAPPY, SO BE WITH LUKE, JUST BE HAPPY” and being a stand-up non-asshole?  !!!  I remember actually thinking “And that makes it okay?” when Anakin sacrificed himself to save Luke - therefore my judgmentalness when it comes to redemption arcs kicked in - and making up stories in my head about hiding out in a ring of bushes with Leia being awesome and Han apologizing for stuff.  I mean, guys.  These two pretty much set the standard for my shipping preferences, forever.  At least in terms of visual narrative.  So!  While I don’t necessarily talk about them much (SOME THINGS ARE HOLY, OKAY!?), they are 100% my Movie OTP.

There was, of course, an increase in heart attacks and traffic accidents as people panicked trying to escape the ghost deer.

A significant decline in dementors as well.

How to cover up tattoos!

  • use a red lipstick covering the outlines
  • pat on a light concealer, using a setting powder
  • pat on your skin tone concealer, and clean up any mistakes using baby wipes to remove excess concealer
  • use a fluffy brush and smooth it out with foundation powder.
VIDEO TUTORIAL:

we don’t usually reblog/post cosplay stuff, but a friend pointed it out to me and i haven’t seen it elsewhere SO maybe it can help someone!

Useful for cosplay AND if you’re applying for a job that views tattoos as ‘unprofessional’. 

Also good for hickeys

This just seems useful for any purpose so here you go

This is my first memory:
A big room with heavy wooden tables that sat on a creaky
       wood floor
A line of green shades—bankers’ lights—down the center
Heavy oak chairs that were too low or maybe I was simply
       too short
              For me to sit in and read
So my first book was always big

In the foyer up four steps a semi-circle desk presided
To the left side the card catalogue
On the right newspapers draped over what looked like
       a quilt rack
Magazines face out from the wall

The welcoming smile of my librarian
The anticipation in my heart
All those books—another world—just waiting
At my fingertips.

okay so alan tudyk is at new orleans comic con 

and someone asked him one of his favorite memories from filming firefly and he told the best story from filming “objects in space”

so basically since wash and zoe and most of the crew are locked in their rooms for the episode, all alan had to do was lay in bed for filming

so he got there early so he could sleep on set and he was about to fall asleep when gina came in and went “damn it. looks like we had the same idea. okay, scoot over.” and they napped together 

how fucking cute is that

A news station was interviewing a man who lived near a dangerous intersection. It is known for an inordinate number of car crashes.

HE JUST KIND OF STEPS BACK
“oh see there you go son”

BALLS OF NONCHALANT STEEL

“See, now this is the kinda shit I’m talking about…”

Woah.
