"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."





Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.

A Gingerbread Candy Kingdom???


ohhhhhh holy cow.
look at the thing. what.




fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.

i’m just saying, if wizarding pictures and portraits are basically sentient, just think how much the posters in teenagers bedrooms have seen.

Anonymous asked:

what is your favorite book?

Now this is a tough one. I read so damn much.

The one series i do read once a year without fail is the Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix (Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen). I still think they’re some of the best books i will ever read. They’re an amazing experience every time and they changed me.

Yes i get deep and meaningful about books.

Harry Potter, of course, has defined my life. I love Stephen Hunt’s books, especially Court of the Air. Anything by Alastair Reynolds, Jasper Fforde, Douglas Adams or Neil Gaiman. I’m probably missing a lot more, but these guys really shaped the way i think.

And Diana Wynne Jones will always be the queen of my heart. Everyone read everything she ever wrote. Everything.
