Okay, well, this is probably going to be really creepy and stalker-ish, but it's tumblr so I've decided I have got nothing to lose:
I realize we've never met and I do not know you but I'm going to tell you all the reasons I think you're wonderful simply by looking at your blog.
1. Your post 'The House Began to Pitch!' was hilarious (and now that song from the Wizard of Oz is stuck in my head)
2. You seem to talk about Disney movies a lot
3. "Watching Lion King, I keep rewinding so I can watch the Be Prepared scene over and over" That was always my favorite part as a kid, and now I own the Disney Classics CD, the 3rd one I believe, and everytime Be Prepared comes on I sing it as loud as I can
4. You said you wanted to see African Cats
5. Harry Potter on your blog. Good sign. (BY THE WAY, 78 days until the next movie comes out sfjdhdfjhflkfsdjdfsdfshdsfjkl)
6. Paula Deen. If she were a man, she might be Satan.
7. You posted something about your house on Animal Crossing...
I just went back on mine and I had a shit ton of cockroaches and weeds and Peanut moved out. It was very depressing
Alright well this was dumb, I'm bored, I've got a head ache,
but you have yourself a great day.
1. The most inappropriate things are going through my head at any given time
2. I have a bad habit of hitting the wine and popping in disney movies…
3. Goose stepping hyenas and nazi propaganda motifs? History references FTW!
4. When I was little my grandparents got me a subscription to National Geographic, and ever since then I’ve wanted to travel the world. Plus cheetahs are just badass.
5. Oh God. It’s terrifying, I don’t know what I’m going to do without anything else to look forward to D:
6. i might be the worlds fattest vegetarian, but there’s a time and place for butter. Seriously.
7. Yeah… that’s what my towns been looking like because i’ve been too busy/distracted to play. Not as bad as when I stopped playing harvest moon because I forgot to feed my cows and felt guilty though.
The moral of the Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame is that the girl you like is gonna fall for your good looking friend, but you should be happy because the most you should expect out of life is to be able to leave your bell tower and not be pelted with tomatoes.
As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen,—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
But I guess John Adams was an America hating godless heathen, am I right? /sarcasm
Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk. This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy. Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude. Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people. On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public. Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone. Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird. Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds. Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun. Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts. Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ
A study released this week found that if the nation’s largest low-wage employer, Walmart, were to pay its 1.4 million U.S. workers a living wage of at least $12 per hour and pass every single pennyof the costs onto consumers, the average Walmart customer would pay just 46 cents more per shopping trip, or around $12 extra dollars each year.
Consider that the next time you hear some corporate mouthpiece warning of massive job losses if some minimally progressive policy were enacted. You never see them arguing on the cable news shows that increasing the minimum wage will hurt Walmart’s or McDonald’s bottom lines; it’s always about the jobs that will be destroyed. According to the ubiquitous spin, large corporations, the embodiments of American-style capitalism, are so vulnerable to the meddling of no-nothing bureaucrats that any government intervention into the “free market” drives corporations away to sunnier locales or threatens their very existence. However well intentioned, it all ends up costing workers their jobs.
But the new study, conducted by Ken Jacobs and Dave Graham-Squire at the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education and Stephanie Luce at CUNY’s Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies, suggests that low-wage employers could pay their workers a wage that would afford them a dignified existence without threatening their profitability.
So basically there is no excuse to be paying their employees minimum wage. I would MORE than happily pick up the extra tab in exchange for folks earning living wages.
More evidence how the low, middle and working classes are just being exploited by the higher ups…
Ron’s Patronus is a Jack Russel Terrier, which J.K. Rowling has said to have as a pet. Jack Russel Terriers are known for their loyalty and protectiveness, and have a lively, energetic, and almost hyperactive personality. They are also particularly noted for chasing otters in deep water. Hermione’s Patronus is an otter, J.K. Rowling’s favourite animal. Otters are known for their playfulness and intelligence. The otter also is in the same family as the weasel, which is the origin of the surname Weasley.
