did you know,
I actually COUNTED how many times I heard since song back when it came out.
Don’t ask me why I decided to do that, but I did. When I stopped counting, it was well over 1200.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that the part of this comic Tumblr has chosen to use is the last frame
there is an old saying amongst the staff of UNIT:
“if he’s got no stash
but he’s got an eye patch”
the first 2 lines are usually sung and it is given as a call and response, and so ingrained within the staff, soldier and scientist, that anyone could walk into any room full of UNIT personal say the first part and have the second part repeated back by everyone, without thought.
Unfortunately not all organisations of a similar nature, but specific to certain countries are aware of this sayings origins. Personal offense has been taken by them on some occasions.
there are UNIT personnel who feel it is their duty (in honour of Sergeant Benton) to take advantage of this, and call the saying out at as many “appropriate” times as possible.
wait you mean you don’t use the word ‘fortnight’ in america???
Wait what? Then what do they use?
they don’t have a word
what do you mean they don’t have a word what kind of uncivilised people are they??
the fuck is a fortnight
It’s a word for ‘two weeks’
it’s a night where the british build forts and wage war against eachother
So, in the middle of everything today, we ran across a hellaciously distressed momma mallard and a bunch of her baby ducks that had fallen down a sewer grate. Another guy was already trying to fish them out, so my friend and I called animal control before we tried to fish the rest of them out. When Animal Control got there, we had all of them out and the mother duck quacking very happily. I was surprised - none of us got snapped at or hurt. I was even holding onto a bag at one point that had all of them in it and she just watched me.
I love momma duck standing on that guy’s butt.
A little self-promotion…a preview of one of the Scofflaw Varnish summer collection polishes.
Electric Salamander - a pale shimmery green-gray base with glitters in lavender, light and dark green, and bright electric neon blue. The aforementioned shimmer in the base is made up of blue, purple, and pink sparkles. It’s typically opaque in two or three coats.
Available June 2nd at scofflawvarnish.com
I need this.
I’m a sucker for white/offwhite/palegrey based glitter polishes. You can never have enough.
I’m actually wearing one of your colors right now! Finally got my hands on a bottle of love letters to kurt vonnegut so just had to wear it on one of my two wear-whatever-i-want days off. :D
Just sitting here talking about old shows.
Bring up Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders like I normally do.
Start researching it more and remember it’s where my email (that I still use) that I made when I was 7 came from.
Like, I knew it did, but I had forgotten about that little fact for a while.
I also still have some of the toys.
wouldn’t ship with a 50-foot bargepole / don’t ship / enh, okay / yeah, sure / i’m not okay with my weird affinity for this pairing / i will ship them in hell
Fun fact time: many of my old acquaintances still make joking comments whenever they see me wearing pink, because as a child (and honestly pretty much right up to high school) I would refuse to associate with any pink objects.
It wasn’t because I didn’t like pink, it was because since I appeared female I was supposed to/ it was immediately assumed that I did and therefore it pissed me the ever-loving fuck off. I was ashamed to like it, which is terrible because pink is an awesome color. But when you shove it down young girls throats it gets really old, really fast.
Give the child the fucking rainbow, and if they pick pink, it’s not because they are female and/or effeminate, it’s because they like the color pink.
