What is titillandums? (Or something like that?) i can translate your heading as Draco never sleeps ____. Also do even numbers 2-36 :)
Finite Incantatem Answer:
Oh, it means “never tickle a sleeping dragon” and it’s on the Hogwarts crest from Harry Potter :)
I should look in my desk drawers more often.
I have been asking my mom for some paints I left at home for a couple of weeks so I could work on a project.
It was probably difficult for her to find considering they have been in my drawer for the entire summer.
And it’s so dumb because the ones I was missing were my primary colors AND HOW THE FUCK DID I PAINT THE GIANT ORANGE OCTOPUS ON THE BULLETIN BOARD OF MY DORM HALL? By using primary colors. That’s how.
So I apparently already knew that I had them because I used them…I just forgot.
I was tagged by lunaticgirl22
Rule 1: Always post the rules
Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, and write 11 new ones
Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post
Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them
I was asked:
1. what’s your name?
2. Where are you from?
The East Coast of the US
3. what is your native language?
4. what would you do/buy if you won the lottery?
It depends how much. If I won a million dollars that doesn’t quite go as far as you would originally think (especially when taxes have been deducted) and so I would probably buy some nice things for my friends and family (including a new house for my family). If I won like $50 million dollars or something crazy and amazing like that (even after taxes that is hella money) then I would obviously set my family up with an awesome new house and get super cool stuff for my friends. I would also probably take a bunch of my friends (and my sister if she’d be interested…she better be cause I’d drag her along) to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and I’d probably see if I could buy my friends and I an uninterrupted day there and then we’d obviously run around Diagon Alley and Hogsmead and buy hella butterbeer and whatnot.
5. with who would you spend your last day alive?
I dunno…do I only get one person? If so…I can’t choose. But if I can have multiple people I would choose my family and also Brian and some of my best friends from school.
6. what is the weirdest thing that ever happened in your life?
7. what is your favourite tv show?
I honestly don’t know if I can choose. I often find a show, binge watch it, become obsessed with it, binge watch another show, and then obsess over that while almost forgetting entirely about the other show. It’s gotten to the point where I have had to switch to watching shows on Hulu because I watched everything that even slightly interested me (and some stuff that didn’t) on Netflix. But if I had to choose I would probably say Orange is the New Black (season two was ON POINT)
8. if a stranger would come to you and ask you a favor, would you do it if you could?
I think it entirely depends on the favor and the vibe that I got from the person. If someone asked to borrow my phone to make an emergency call I would most likely lend it to them. Obviously if I was asked to do something illegal, dangerous, or ethically questionable I would decline.
9. would you rather own a monkey or a snake?
Probably a snake. They are both kind of scary to me but a snake is (typically) smaller and can be contained more easily. If I can choose a nice, small, calm, non-venomous snake then I can probably dig that.
10. do you have any pets?
I do. :D I have a greyhound named Poppy and here’s his picture:
11.If you were a super hero what powers would you have?
I would probably actually only choose something like the power to fly because stuff like reading minds or time travel kind of freak me out. I would feel so awful hearing peoples’ private thoughts and I would feel guilty constantly. I also would never want to go to the past because I would be absolutely terrified to change something (however small) and then cause a ripple effect that drastically changes the future. It just freaks me out. So flying…I can dig flying.
My questions for the tagged are:
1. If you had to choose ONE show to blog about, what would it be?
2. What song have you not gotten sick of at all, ever?
3. Do you have a really unpopular opinion about any foods?
4. Do you actually know of anyone with a legitimately cute “first kiss” story?
5. Out of all the OTPs in the shipping world, which one do you irrationally hate and why?
6. If you could go to any concert at all right now what would it be?
7. Did you actually like Middle School?
8. Can you read in moving vehicles (I dunno…some people can’t so I figured I’d ask)
9. Would you prefer to live by yourself or have roommates?
10. What is the longest you have ever spent away from home?
11. Will you post a drawing/sketch/painting/photo/piece of art in general that you have created? :)
aaand tyleroakley (because why not try?)
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
