slime-experiencer said: chamomille, bubble tea, chai

chamomile: comfort movie?

I’m going to define that as happy movies I like rewatching. I watched one today: the first Pink Panther movie (with Steve Martin). I laughed so much that I started tearing up and got worried that I would vomit. I am very fond of slapstick. 

bubble tea: what ride would you pick at an amusement park?

Any sort of roller coaster. I also really like the swingy boat things. I cannot do anything that involves spinning. I haven’t been on a roller coaster in a while though. The last one was the Kraken at Disney World/Land in Florida. I was there with my aunt and her family. (Her younger devil-child was a toddler and kept taking his shoes off and running into the crowd. It was stressful.) My aunt went with me. Her husband didn’t, saying very seriously that someone had to stay alive for the children. It was terrible-wonderful. I also got away for a bit by myself and did the Pirates of Caribbean ride. That was really fun too.

chai: what do you order at starbucks?

I am currently rather into the hibiscus-and-something-else refresher things with the green coffee bean extract. I am also becoming more fond of lattes without sweet syrups (in general, not just at Starbucks.) Also, learning about the short size has changed my life. It is now 100% more full of wonder and magic.

Gerzina has written a fascinating account of London blacks, focusing on the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Because of a paucity of sources from blacks themselves, Gerzina had to rely primarily on glimpses through white eyes, especially those of antislavery advocate Granville Sharp. Gerzina is quite adept at culling evidence of a rich, complex black life, with significant interaction (and intermarriage) with the white community.

Just saw ‘Gone Girl’. OMFG. Highly recommend. Rosamund Pike was amazing. Potentially spoilery thoughts below the cut.

condesces:

what i’m talking about re: gaslighting is

  • the denial of someone’s perception of reality as true
  • the denial of someone’s experiences as meaningful
  • the denial of someone’s experiences as legitimate

all of these things equate to “what you experienced didn’t really happen as you perceived it, and my perception is more true than yours, and you should listen to me instead of trusting your own experiences”

and that is gaslighting

and that is abuse

i was trying to make my friend a bday cake but the dye on the decorative icing started leaking and dripping everywhere so it accidentally became the most ominous and violent looking baked good ive ever seen…… i slapped on some sprinkles to try and make it less threatening looking. it worked a little bit.

BIRTH

I just assumed this was a baby shower cake.

this is from a real diary by a 13-year-old girl in 1870. teenage girls are awesome and they’ve always been that way.

I hope Bessie’s father didn’t nip her interests in the bud.
