why is donkey kong not a donkey
THIS! Also I wish Rowling would have explored Hermione’s motivations more, because damn, these tags did a better job at explaining her motivations than the actual books. I mean, seriously, we get to know all about Ron, get to learn all his deepest fears and his greatest motivations, get to meet each member of his family, get to see where he lives, get to know him outside the context of being one of Harry’s best friends… but Hermione? Well, we don’t even get to know half of that.
Hermione is one of my favorite characters, but we don’t get to know Hermione like we do Ron. In fact, this can be said of most of the women in the series when you think about it.
Since everyone’s already talking about Hermione, I’d like to bring this back. I have a lot of feelings about the women in Harry Potter.
"Jiggery pokery!” said Harry in a fierce voice. “Hocus pocus — squiggly wiggly —”
“MUUUUUUM!” howled Dudley, “He’s doing you know what!"

YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF
This got even funnier when I realized that to shoot it, essentially someone had to hurl a massive rat puppet at Cary Elwes.
I wonder if the kids were trying to be nice by telling me my fashion sense sucks?
Like they`re warning me so I can do better in the future?
Don`t freaking cry
I am feeling so hurt. I wrote a letter to all of my students saying goodbye. I gave my letters to class 2-1, which is a problem class that hates English. I knew a lot of them wouldn`t want the letter (I wrote them in English because I am an English teacher), but I thought I should give them to everyone just in case someone was happy to get one. Well, they wrote me a letter back with a small comment from everyone (in Japanese).
I was touched for a minute until I read the contents, which consisted mainly of criticizing my fashion sense, blaming me for writing in English, telling me they couldn`t read my letters, and saying well I guess I should thank you so yeah thanks…..
I know you hate English class, but why do half of you feel it`s necessary to criticize what I wear as our parting words?! I didn`t criticize any of you in my letters (of course you wouldn`t know that cause you didn`t read them)! I know it`s hard to read English, but I am an English teacher. I already speak Japanese to you when I am only supposed to speak English.
Good gods. They are twelve. Twelve and stupid. I should be above getting hurt by these kids, but why did they think this was ok? A simple thank you or goodbye would have sufficed.
i was labelling stuff today and this lady scoffed at me and i was like hi and she was like writing with ur left hand is immoral. its 2014 and someone actually said that to my face
Final thought before bed
I want to get a new Harry Potter comic out tomorrow….
So much work to do before moving.
I cleaned today, but not nearly enough. Everything is half done.
i hate talking about feminism to people i care about because i can hear myself sounding like a stereotypical caricature of a feminist every time i try to say something, and i can feel them rolling their eyes at me and thinking that i’m being ridiculous
it’s like i can FEEL myself becoming a punchline for a joke about feminists and it is so scary
