"My mother? Let me tell you about my mother!"
in the tumblr tagging system, unsourced artwork is considered especially heinous. on this blogging platform, the users who source these felonies are part of an elite task force called the source your fucking artwork unit. these are their stories.
When you go to a haunted house, it may seem like you’re being funny by trying to scare the actors or jump out at them when you go through a second time, but guess what? ITS NOT FUNNY.
You pay us to scare you. It is your choice to go, so don’t fucking go through if you’re going to ignore the rules and get too close to the actors as a ‘joke’.
These bruises happened because over the course of 4 hours, several people ignored the instructions that CLEARLY stated that they were to wait in the front room until told otherwise. Rather than listen, they ran into the next room and slammed into me- effectively throwing me into the wall. This didn’t only happen once. It happened ten times at LEAST.
Then we had this asshole who thought that once I ‘died’ for the haunt, he could pretend to kick me to see if I’d moved. I, being used to people abusing me- jumped back and slammed my head into the concrete wall.
YOU ARE NOT FUNNY BY BEING RUDE AT A HAUNTED HOUSE. WE ARE PAID ACTORS THAT YOU CHOOSE TO COME AND SEE PERFORM. YOU PAY US TO SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU, SO DONT HIT US WHEN WE DO
I feel that this is relevant considering it is October and more Haunted Houses are opening up. I know it seems funny to scare the ‘monsters’ but all you do is hurt real people. So stop.
It’s not even October but I’m still spreading this
SIGNAL BOOOOOOOOSSSSSTTTTT!!!!!!! Now
The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
Alright, guys. I don’t post much about my personal life on here and I certainly never ask much of anyone, but I’ve run into a problem I simply can’t handle alone. I adopted a kitten a little over two years ago and named her Auryn (the medallion from The Never Ending Story). I brought her with me when I lived out in Norton, VA with my sister Lizz / imsosrsly and once there (and once she was old enough) I got her shots and de-wormed her and all the wonderful things that go along with raising a beautiful baby kitty.
She was strictly inside and spooked easily, but she was also brave and super cuddly. I have terrible anxiety and was having an extremely stressful time at Norton, but when she was there with me, I always felt better. She even enjoyed watching me play Minecraft while laying in my lap. We’ve moved again and brought her along with us to this new house.
A couple days ago, while most likely trying to catch bugs on the porch, we think she fell. We found her with a messed up leg. We googled a lot of possibilities as to what was wrong, but obviously you never know until you take them to the vet. I spent a good part of last night messaging friends on Facebook to help me take her to the vet this morning (thank you to all of you who were supportive and sweet) and I did get a ride from my wonderful mother.
And here’s the bad news: her back right leg is completely broken and described by the vet as “shattered” and “the worst he’s seen” there at the Animal Hospital. I am honestly devastated because she’s been through so much with us and has really become a part of our family.
Even worse news: we don’t have the money to pay for her surgery. Mom is currently working and so is Lizz and I’m trying my hardest to get mine and Courtney’s shop open, but it isn’t enough on top of being behind on bills and gas and just having gotten back from Dragoncon and everything else. The surgery the vet wanted us to get, from a surgeon in Blacksburg, would run about $2,000 to $4,000, which is out of the question for us. However, they will operate on her at the Hospital for $400. This is on top of the $200 that we had to spend on her visit today. We simply don’t have the money, but I can’t stand the thought of her not healing or getting the treatment she needs.
The deadline for her surgery is the end of next week on Thursday, September 18th. So I’m asking that if any of you are better off than we are, please donate for her. Even if it’s just a little, that helps more than you know. I’d like to set a goal for us of about $700-$800, just to cover the surgery and future meds and visits. But just raising the $400 would be a blessing. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and possibly donating or even just reblogging this post!
Please make your donations to Lizz’s paypal account, since I don’t have one: Lizzeh_mo@yahoo.com
Hey guys so we NEVER reblog stuff like this onto our cosplay tumblr, but anyone who’s followed us for a while knows how important cats are to us!! Shan and Lizz are our friends and great cosplayers and GREAT PEOPLE and they need help to get their baby the help she needs. Please, please, think about donating or signal boosting or anything.
This is a picture of three people from the Ferguson city commission.
Remember the story of how Ferguson police beat a man and then charged him with bleeding on their uniforms?
See that woman in the picture?
She was one of the cops who beat him.
Seriously what the fuck.
If you weren’t following #Ferguson on Twitter last night, you missed out. The city commission had a meeting where they tried to tell the people they couldn’t talk, but were eventually shouted down. So the All-White-Except-One city council sat there, gave people three minutes to speak, and said nothing, responded to nothing, and did nothing.
A couple of highlights:
A man arrested for peacefully protesting spoke up and said “I’ve done more jail time than Darren Wilson.”
“If Darren Wilson doesn’t get justice, you might as well bring back the army, because it’s going to be chaos,” said another.
ESPN E60 reportedly had a story about a football player from Ferguson who reported a harassment incident with Darren Wilson a week before Mike Brown. (Looked for more reports of this today and don’t see any. Sent a few messages to journalists who were covering Ferguson.)
Several people talked about how the “justice” system (more like “jüstice” system) in Ferguson routinely harasses and exploits people.
The whole thing seemed very organized, with people telling the council (paraphrased): “You’ve done nothing for us, and that’s why you’ve got a murder on your hands. Now we’re coming for you [meaning the various seats on the council]” with one woman in particular saying to the woman pictured above, “We’re coming for your seat first.”
“I have 3 minutes to tell you I am ashamed of every single one of you.”
Ferguson protesters gather for highway shutdown.
All photos less than 24 hours ago.
The fight in StLouis continues.
Interesting. For all those who say how violent and lawless the protestors are …
Ferguson is an open carry gun town. I haven’t heard any reports of protestors carrying guns—has anyone? Guns on the civilian side would start a bloodbath, as hair trigger as the cops have shown themselves, and yet …
Will Darren Wilson ever be arrested?
