Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
I want to know more about the pop culture aspect of jaegar pilots and kaijus.
I’m sure kids grow up pretending to be pilots, but like do teens refer to their gfs/bfs as being drift compatible? do kids write rpf about jaegar pilots? have social media accounts with names like ‘@thebecketbrosbutts’? and chuck’s “I’ll drop u like a second kaiju shit’, I bet there’s whole slews of regional kaiju relates swears and insults.
important things that I need to know
The only thing that I can think of to maybe cheer you up is that one of my cats likes to climb on top of stuff, including people. And if you ignore her while shes on your shoulder she’ll smack you in the face.
you're my favourite human
and your cat is my favourite cat (after my own tho obvs)
friend i appreciate this very much <3 thank you
excuse me while i laugh maniacally into the next century because my father apologised for hurting my feelings by saying “i was making a point”
he is a dick and killing him is on my list, but he’s attractive so i’m going to get one more kid out of him
i’m not sure on the ghost front, i guess we’ll find out after i kill my husband and put his gravestone in my backyard
YOU NEED TO MAKE IT MORE OBVIOUS THAT THIS IS ABOUT THE SIMS
to catch a bus you have to think like a bus
when somebody introduces a dog to you by saying “this is my dog”
Chuck’s not an idiot.
He knows exactly what it feels like to get punched in the face, he knows exactly what a kick in the nuts feels like, and he is acutely aware of how fucking painful it is to get slammed into a wall at an insanely inhuman speed.
Falling in love is nothing like that.
All those people that wax poetic about how it feels like opening your mouth and finally breathing real air, opening your eyes to finally see the sun - they’re a bunch of schmucks.
Chuck knows exactly what it feels like to fall in love, and it’s nothing like that.
He’s read so many books, over the years, that spout so much shit he’s not so sure they weren’t directly conjured from the very depths of the universe’s sewerage plant. Falling in love is like drowning, they say; falling in love is like free-falling without a care; falling in love is less like falling and more like finally finding the ground.
Falling in love is like being shot in the face, twice, with a high-powered rifle, and it’s only after the bullets are bouncing around in your skull that you find out they’re filled with fucking acid. That’s what falling in love is like. Chuck is very fucking aware of that fact.
And he’s sitting there, ass planted firmly on the walkway that used to lead directly to Striker’s Conn-Pod, staring down at the workers, and all he can think is:
Becket’s the one that pulled the goddamn trigger.
excerpt from that thing i'm writing that quite probably won't end up being written for at least another month, by which time i will have forgotten about it and probably cried into my cereal about the unfairness of it without actually knowing what the hell it is
- A character with down syndrome who has no cognitive impairments, because not all people with down syndrome do but you wouldn’t know from the media
- A character who does have cognitive impairments and is shown to be in a loving relationship because cognitive impairments do not stop a person from having sexual and romantic desires
- A character with autism who is not portrayed as a victim or as a burden on their family, because autistic =/= broken
- A character who suffers from some form of psychotic illness such as schizophrenia that is portrayed in a way that is actually realistic and is in no way a serial killer or violent criminal because most mentally ill people are never violent.
- A character with bipolar disorder who is not cured by the power of love, but instead managed long term by a combination of medication, therapy, and their own hard work and determination
- A character with ANY mental illness that is not cured by the power of love
- Seriously, love is not a cure
- Depression and anxiety not being portrayed as cute/special/quirky
- A character with OCD who is not obsessive about cleanliness
- A character with tourettes who has never called out obscene things in public
- A character with a physical disability who is portrayed as a normal person, with normal needs and not some asexual angelic inspiration
- An asexual character who is not portrayed as shy, introverted and emotionless
And last but not least:
- Make these characters a diverse range of genders, sexualities, and of all races and ethnicity.
this is how I see their entire relationship
