Just…be careful, ok? There’s some weird stuff going on that looks like more than just bad LSD. If it’s a virus, best of luck to you all. I wish you could come here on the other side of the U.S. to avoid all this.
People actually believe this shit.
Good thing the zombies are starting in Florida.
Good luck making it to me through Tennessee fuckers.
You know that’s fake, right?
yes of course
omg christine hahahaha
I’m bad sometimes.
but I’m not THAT bad.
hahahah just making sure <3
But for real, if Zombies actually do start in Florida, getting through all the rednecks with guns in the deep south? They’d never make it to me in NC. I think of these things.
Finnick casting rumors are heating up! Most popular rumors are suggesting that it’s down to:
I’m feeling Armie on this one. Not so much Taylor…
My feet are firmly in the Armie Hammer camp. Kitsch said he’s not interested, and the other dude looks like an infant with a beard.
how about the international justice league of super acquaintances
if we follow each other i automatically consider you my friend so don’t be surprised if i reply to your posts like i’ve known you for ages
Hamels has been great though. A few mistakes today but he’s really been good this year.
Oh I know. I’m saying Cole wins Cy this year. But still, I feel awful for Cliff. It’s not like he has been pitching terribly. I bet he just sits on the bench and thinks to himself “why not me??”
To be fair, that was Cole in 2010(?). Pitching his ass off for nothing. Frankly, I’m pissed at the position players right now. The pitchers, as long as they keep doing what they’re doing, will always have my respect.
cliftonphifer replied to your photo: My best friend’s dog is a pit/boxer mix and can be…
omg he looks thrilled hahahaha
To be fair, that was the fourth attempt at a picture, each with a flash. haha.
But see, that’s what I love about him. He’s not the same as every other gay character on television. From what I’ve seen of the 2nd season (I forgot to watch last year), he does mature a little bit.
Dude Huston Street for closer.
SHIT. I’ll fix it. I forgot about him.

When I was 13, my entire 8th grade class took a field trip to the Gem Theater in Kannapolis, North Carolina. One of those old-school theaters that opened in the 30s. Single cinema, gorgeous inside and out, you get the picture. To me, it was just a field trip that got me and my friends outside of school to horse around in a dark theater. I sat next to my crush on the bus ride over. I was excited, y’all. At that point in my life, college was lightyears away and I had no plans for the future that reached past the weekend. No one was happy abou seeing Gone With The Wind. A movie made 60 years ago about a love story during the Civil War, which was an even *longer* time ago? Boring. All I remember is my crush sitting next to me, best friend on the other side, and the class clown behind me. We were prepared for a goddamn good time.
Then the movie started. And y’all, I sat there frozen until intermission. And still frozen until the credits. I wanted to know more. Why the Civil War was fought, what’s the real story with the class/racial divide, why was Rhett not off fighting like the rest of the men, *that* many people died? All those questions rang through my mind when the movie was over. You have to realize, I didn’t give a rats ass about history at that point. These questions might have been answered for me in classes, but I never cared to remember any of it.
Suddenly, I’m doing everything I can to learn more. I’m on the computer, in the library, and actually reading my textbook. I bought my first copy of Gone With The Wind and read it so many times, the pages fell out (my second copy is still with me, although not for long, by the looks of it). I was enamoured with this story. Scarlett was far from a heroine, but she had balls. And Rhett, Rhett made me forget about the little red-headed boy I had a crush on (no, not you Ryan, if you’re reading this. You were gross in middle school. <3).
Learning about the Civil War opened me up to the Lincoln presidency. Learning about Lincoln opened me up to his early life and wilds of the west. The Revolutionary War. The pilgrims. When I got all I could from them, I moved forward. The turn of the century. WWI. Roaring Twenties. The Great Depression. WWII. The Cold War. Feminism in the 60s and 70s. Finally to the present. There was so much to learn and it was intimidating when I opened my eyes to all the information out there. It may seem stupid, but I didn’t really learn until after Gone With The Wind. I finally cared about school. I cared about history. I’ve always had my nose in a book, but now I was more likely to have a biography or a book that explains the Bolshevik Revolution. I started telling people I wanted to go to college and major in history. I took all the history courses available in high school.
Gone With The Wind changed my life. I don’t know if I would be on the same path I am now if it wasn’t for that book. I don’t know if I would have made the decision to spend the rest of my life reading and writing papers about wars and people who are long dead. When people ask why I chose history to be my major in college, I simply tell them Gone With The Wind. I usually don’t give the full explanation. The love I feel for that story consumes me. I never ask for the special anniversary DVDs for my birthday or Christmas, because I want that to be something I buy for myself. As I mention above, I do need to go and buy a new copy of the book. The one I have now is a little ratty.
Thanks for reading. Sorry it was long, but I never get to tell this story. My nerdery, my future, and my life is explained by this story.
