being addicted to american tv shows is so annoying because you guys have so many stupid fucking holidays for everything that every other week im disappointed when I go to see if the next ep is up yet and its like nOPE it’s fucking ‘armadillo day’ or something in the states ffs
That’s funny cause in Texas armadillo day is a real thing
The scent of Italian spices filled the kitchen, accented by tomato, garlic, and baking bread. Two bowls sat to the side of the stove top, warmed by the gas-lit fire under her large pot of boiling water . She stood in front of the stove, humming softly as she watched the noodles drift up and down…
I was planning on messing around with photoshop and making gifs and graphics or coming up with other cosplays I could do for Detour, San Diego Comic Con, and Minneapolis Wizard World. But all I’ve done for the past few hours is watch How It’s Made videos on YouTube.
Now I want to Watch How It’s Made.
It’s addictive. And they have a lot of the segments on there and they have a couple full episodes too.
(A man comes to the counter and places two dresses on the counter:one sized XS and one sized XXL.)
Me:“Are these dresses both for the same woman?”
Me:“Oh, okay. These are both very different sizes, so they are not likely to fit the same person. What size does she usually take?”
Customer:“Um… I’m not sure.”
Manager:“Well, does she look more like me or more like her?”
(Note:my manager is quite small, and I am quite big.)
Customer:“Um… uh… I’m sure these will be fine.”
Me:“Sir, because the price is marked down on these dresses they will be Final Sale, so you will not be able to return them if they are not the right size. Are you sure we can’t help you?”

Manager:“Why don’t you go try them on, then?”
Customer:“Really? Would that be okay with you?”
Manager:“Of course! Let me get you started with a fitting room.”
(I spend the next hour bringing this man dresses to try on and he had a lovely time! He introduced himself to me and thanked us profusely for being so understanding and helpful. He left with four dresses, all of which fit him to a tee, and he came back regularly after that.)
I looked back to try to figure out when I got confident, because I always used to be really insecure, and I can pretty much pinpoint that it all started when I saw Avengers Assemble. From the first moment I watched Natasha Romanoff turn people’s stereotypes against them I realized that I didn’t…
There’s this girl at my school and she’s really nice and I remember sometime last year at one point she would carry a clicker around and click it everytime she had a happy thought/something good happened/she laughed etc. It was always kind of cute how you’d just hear the little click every once in a while throughout class it always made me smile knowing that it was bc something made her feel happy idk
A/N: This is a school!AU in which Steve is a letterman jacket wearing football player, and Tony is that science dork (so original I know). College or Highschool is up to you. Thought of this prompt at work, decided it was too cute to let go. I’m way behind on prompts in my inbox so tomorrow I will fill a bunch!
Today my asshole older cousin saw my X-Ray and Vav t-shirt and went on this big spiel about how girls only wear superhero shirts to seem “geeky” and “dorky” because it will impress boys. As if to prove his point he gestured to my shirt and asked if I’d even read any of their comics.
SO ready for Derek to shove Scott back behind the safety glass and slam the containment lock and turn back towards Stiles, opening his mouth, so ready for Stiles to shove his hand into Derek’s chest before Derek can say anything, reach straight in and gut him, the low, harsh,…
