british people are so fucking cute
they called christmas lights ‘fairy lights’
they called sweaters ‘jumpers’
sneakers are ‘trainers’
they say ‘you alright/you ok’ instead of ‘how are you’
fuck off you condescending twat
I can’t be the only one who finds ‘sweater’ and ‘sweatshirt’ disgusting names for items of clothing, can I? I’m all for American idioms (a good chunk of my favourite films and literature would be a lot lamer without them) but that one’s just gross.
Let’s see Batman do that
I feel exactly the same way about that as I do about “Who would win in a fight?” I don’t give a shit who would win, but I definitely want to see it.

I loved unicorns when I was eleven/twelve years old and then I learned that it was real soft and nerdy to love unicorns so I checked out of the whole unicorn-liking mindset because I felt a need to be hardening myself and copping a dark-stuff-only stance
then when I was 19 my girlfriend gave me a coffee cup with a unicorn on it and on receiving it I discovered that I had internalized some bullshit anti-unicorn stance and it made me sad
to those unicorns who didn’t get liked by me during my bullshit years: my bad, do you like carrots, I will leave a plate of carrots out by the back door, I also have oats

Vinyl close-up. Vinyl record is a sculpture of sound and time. Bits of someone’s life hide in this trench. Dust of someone’s childhood room, smoke of someone’s cigarette, perfume of someone’s wife ❦

So many of you are too young to remember why Diana, Princess of Wales, was such a remarkable person. She pissed off most of Buckingham Palace, was her own woman, and wasn’t afraid to get down out of the motorcade and be with the regular people.
She was a regular person, just with a title and fancy clothes.
Among the first big “names” to visit, talk to, and even touch those dying of AIDS in English hospitals, Diana’s trademark was her ability to break down insurmountable barriers.
*insert super-obvious ‘breaking down barriers’ joke*
"Hello human I heard you’re having a shitty morning maybe a game of Guess The Smell will cheer you up"
Playing Guess The Smell with my cat is like playing Rock-Paper-Scissors with a guy who always throws rock.
It’s butthole. It’s always butthole.
