Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.

Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.

The only problem with having a loosely matriarchal family structure is- now I’m the de facto head of our family, though not the entire family. I don’t think I ever appreciated how delicate Mom had to be, dealing with Grandma (who is definitely the head of the entire family) and trying to balance her side’s obligations with those of Dad’s side. It’s my responsibility to figure out what’s happening with the holidays this year, so I have to make sure that neither Dad’s side nor Mom’s side thinks we’re favoring the other too much. I also have to try to keep a balance between helping the family move on and respecting our past traditions. And, as a fun bonus, try not to seem like a slacker at work, since we’re not supposed to have time off for the holidays this year.

I’m not ready for this. I can’t even cook a proper Thanksgiving meal. I’ve only ever been responsible for the pies. I was learning, but now…

Anonymous asked: Shakespeare was queer? I thought he only had affairs with ladies. What dudes did he get it on with?

swanjolraven:

OH U SWEET SUMMER CHILD

so remember those sonnets, you know, about one hundred and twenty-six of them, the whole thing about “shall i compare thee to a summer’s day”

written to a hot male earl, dude

in 1640 some asshole named john literally had to change all the pronouns in those 126 sonnets because they were super fuckin queer and he was not comfy with how super fuckin queer they were

also, like, casual elizabethan bisexuality? christopher “they who love not tobacco and boys are fools” marlowe? the venetian “tit bridge”, where prostitutes were commanded by official decree to stand around topless to entice men who were bangin’ too many dudes, because there were so many gay men it was becoming a legitimate social problem?

welcome to the wonderful world of “literally everyone in the past was queer”, friend, enjoy your stay

The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognised you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother Lily’s. Oh yes, I knew her. Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumour has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.

here’s to polyamorous bisexuals, to promiscuous bisexuals, to bisexuals who really are confused about their sexuality.

i’ve fit into all three of these categories at one point or another and we get thrown under the bus a lot. here’s to everyone who fits the stereotype.
