We were walking around World If Disney. The giant Disney store that’s at the edge of downtown Disney and right at the entrance of Disneyland.
We were all looking around the story and one of the employees came to us and asked “what’s all this fabulousness for” and my friends explained it was a princess party for my birthday. So she left and brought back these buttons for me and “I’m celebrating” buttons for all of my friends.
Then she made the store sing happy birthday to me!
It was super great
Then this other employee was like “we heard it was your birthday” and gave me an autographed photo of Minnie Mouse.
And it was like an 8x11.5 photo too
I didn’t know they did that.
Disneyland never fails to provide magical moments for their guests

I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.This is what happens when Candians are let lose and try to prank people
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
Every once in a while, I’ll get an idea for a fan fiction I’d really like to read. I’m not much of a writer, else I might write one myself. The following is a description of a fan fiction I want to exist:
Supernatural/Doctor Who Crossover
Premise: “It all started when Dean insisted that the Doctor would never cut it as a hunter.” The Doctor and the Winchesters trade lives for a week.
What I’d like to see in it:
- The Doctor (I imagine Ten, but Eleven can work too) taking on either Kevin or Charlie as companion/partner while he goes on his hunts
- Sam being the Time Lord with Dean in the role of companion.
- The Doctor being gleefully fascinated by the monsters he encounters.
- Sam and Dean actually get a moment to appreciate how amazing the universe is.
- Each party comes to odds with the others’ moral codes (ie the Doctor doesn’t want to use guns, which is kind of a handicap for a hunter, while the Winchesters are shoot-first-ask-questions-later types, which does not befit a TARDIS life.)
If anyone can recommend a fic they know that is similar to this, or if you’re going to write one, let me know! In the meantime, I’m going to draw this.
It’s true what he says though - there is no subject position from which it’s ok to talk about inequality - if you’re poor you are doing it out of jealously, if you’re not poor you’re doing it out of guilt/saviour complex, if you are young it’s just a phase, if you’re old you are hankering for times long gone and trying to recapture your youth, if you’re not well educated you just don’t understand the complexity of the situation, if you are well educated you’re in an academic bubble divorced from reality, if your politically apathetic you’re not allowed to complain, if you’re politically active you’re just trying to push your own sectarian agenda…
For every possible type of person there’s an established reason why your opinions on inequality are invalid. That’s not an accident.
Relevant, and important to understand.
THIS IS KILLING ME
I thought this might be the case.. Sometimes I watch gag reels or listen to Jared/Jensen/Misha talk about sabotaging each other’s takes and after I laugh I just think, “I hope the crew doesn’t hate them too much for that…”
One of Supernatural’s greatest strengths is its ability to pull back the curtain on masculinity. On Supernatural, men are allowed to give voice to their interior lives. They are strong, weak, conflicted, tormented, joyful, silly, and vulnerable. They are allowed to love unconditionally, they are…
Yeah, there were so many things wrong with that scene..
Guest contributor Christopher Ritchie questions the changes made to the Time War.
This is an interesting article. I agree with it somewhat - the Time War and his actions in it is an integral part of the Doctor’s character - but I always thought that they’d have to bring Gallifrey back eventually to keep the show fresh. Gallifrey managed to exist and create good plots for the majority of the classic series, and the show can stand having it exist again. I just didn’t think it’d be so soon.
Reversing the Doctor’s final actions in the Time War doesn’t necessarily remove all faults from him. First of all, he DID do it the first time around. But also, the War Doctor aged considerably between when he was newly regenerated (in Night of the Doctor) and when we see him in the special, which means he was participating in that war for a LONG time. Possibly committing atrocities alongside other Time Lord soldiers. Acting against his personal moral code, until he couldn’t take it anymore.
The article mentions a few other dramatic directions the show can be taken now - the Doctor having to face the fact that the Time Lords are still gigantic pricks and maybe saving them causes a bunch of other problems - and I do think these sorts of plots would be necessary to move forward with. Because it’s right, the Doctor becomes much less interesting if you just take away all that inner darkness, all at once, in a single episode.
