it’s undeniable that the romanticized abusive relationship is the worst part of 50 Shades of Grey, but people are forgetting that the rest of the book is also irritatingly bad
"as I floor it" would have worked. "as I put the pedal to the metal" would have been fine. but EL James decided to go the extra mile and combine two fucking idioms.

I want to chime in about how much I despise this book as well as James’s rotten attitude. I hope one day I have the opportunity to meet the person who glorified rape culture and set millions back 25+ years in terms of education when it comes to sex and consent so I can resist spitting on the ground she walks on because she’s lower than my petty rancor.Yes, that was pretentious and poorly written. No, I’m not sorry.ANYWAY: I HIGHLY recommend people check out the livejournal das_sporking - some amazing reviewers have spent years - literally - breaking down everything wrong with those books from the abuse to the grammar. They just began the breakdown of the final book, and it’s already infuriating.

the pinnacle of arnold’s career

(via ebtpearce)

I’m very stressed this week because I won’t find out how to restructure my life until Thursday (I find out what classes to register for, if I can pay for them, and if I can keep my current job. Were it not for the necessity of money I’d quit to focus solely on school).

I tried to think of something to give me strength and remembered the literary heroines of my childhood: Pippi Longstocking, Anne Shirley, and Jo March. I could chat on at length about each, but I will let the names stand on their own. Anyone familiar with the first appearances of each character will understand my meaning.

Honorable mention: the inhabitants of the titular giant peach.

Recap — Pacific Rim (Drift-Compatible Cocktails)

I am so pleased with this past week!  Drift-compatible cocktails were a fascinating challenge, and overall I am extremely pleased with the results.  Also, to set the record straight, Newt and Hermann’s drift drink is actually quite tasty (although I’ll admit that even I was a bit surprised by this).

Anyway, here’s the list of cocktails created this week:

Sunday:  A Fixed Point (Stacker Pentacost) — limonade variant
Monday:  For My Family (Mako Mori) — amaretto-based cocktail
Tuesday:  Hold On (Raleigh Becket) — blended wheat beer
Wednesday:  Kaiju Blue (Newton Geiszler) — ty ku cocktail
Thursday:  Numbers (Hermann Gottlieb) — beer cocktail
Friday:  Skinmite Solution (Hannibal Chau) — vodka and tonic variant



Also, here’s a list of all of the drift drinks:

Stacker + Mako:  Mark 3 Restoration Project (amaretto sour variant)
Stacker + Raleigh:  Don’t You Ever Touch Me Again (shandy)
Mako + Raleigh:  Chasing the Rabbit (beer cocktail)
Newt + Hermann:  Kaiju Drift (????)[1]


Grab bag later today!

[1] I seriously have no idea how to categorize this drink, but actually it really is pretty tasty!  It tastes something like a sweet tart.  You can, of course, also throw in some kaiju sushi for veracity.

Damn I miss Katamari.

See the one on the upper left corner? That’s Miso, she literally has soup for brains - her head is a bowl of miso soup!I always wanted a top with Miso sitting on the bottom off to the side with the steam from her head wafting up the side in elegant, cute shapes.
