i’m so upset

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb

they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!

I can’t

present active boōpresent infinitive boāreperfect active boāvīsupine boātum

Recte!

if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter

do they speak latin because it’s a dead language

I hope this video helps break a few of your stereotypes. I found that most Tattoo artists that I dealt with were very courteous professionals.

Maybe not for the squeamish, but Destin’s newest video is absolutely mesmerizing and neato!

This week I have been excited about:

  • Purchasing an ironing board
  • Discovering that yes, we do in fact have an outside tap at this flat
  • Flounder for dinner

Its the little things.

I don’t think one actress should play Aphrodite I think it should be multiple woman of different races and looks because beauty isn’t just white woman alone or black woman alone or Asian woman alone or any other race alone. everyone is beautiful and that is who Aphrodite is, she is beauty.

This should have more notes

she could look different for every person because beauty is in the eye of the beholder or whatever

isaac-nobody asked
Is there a species of duck that is particularly famed for monogamous male-male couples that, um, are maybe less scary than mallards? I want to know 'cause if my partner and I get married in the next few years I might want Korean-style wedding ducks (traditionally Mandarins I think,) but Korea not being the gay-friendliest = there not being a new tradition yet.

koryos:

I immediately thought of the blue duck/whio because of this. They also have the (possibly romantic) advantage of forming lifelong pair bonds rather than seasonal pair bonds, unlike mallards and most other duck species. Going off of this study, at least, it’s not common for them to attempt forcible mating.

Plus, they’re an endangered species, so it never hurts to put the word out. And good luck and congrats on your (eventual) wedding! May you be the cutest little pair of ducks, hell corkscrew-penises notwithstanding.

Awww yiss NZ endemics!
Whio are pretty darn cool.
