The average Nerdfighter spends five times less time watching TV than the average American.
And I am fairly certain my answers did not contribute to that statistic.
shoutout out to all my buddies who have shitty dads or no dads at all this father’s day, you turned out just great regardless, you can’t choose your family and you don’t deserve any negativity from them,and you don’t deserve backlash or guilt-tripping for cutting them out of your life if that’s what you need/ed to do and i love you all
This. So much this.
Oh how fun!!! - Was my first reaction. Followed immediately by: Oh crap - all of my ‘things’ are pretty screwed up. Ah well. Life is nothing if we’re not letting our freak flags fly!
1. I’m the oldest of five children.
2. “Technically” my brother and sisters are my “half” brother and sisters. I don’t mess with technicalities though - they’re my sisters and my brother yo! (Also, feel bad for my brother - the only boy smack in the middle of four girls - poor kid didn’t stand a chance)
3. My dad beat feet when I was a wee little Rhonda - I wouldn’t know him if he walked into my living room right now. In fact, I’d probably be a little freaked because hey - stranger in my house.
4. When I was VERY little I thought the best job in the world was being a gas station attendant. That guy was always in a good mood when he pumped our gas AND he got to use the super cool squeegee to clean our windows.
5. I hate to make phone calls. Like seriously hate to do it. If it’s family it’s not so bad. If it’s friends I’ll do it if I HAVE to but don’t ask me to call and order a pizza because it freaks me out. And yes, this can sometimes make my job as an administrative assistant a bit stressful.
6. I’m horrible with both faces and names. Like HORRIBLE. I can meet you and literally ten minutes from now not only NOT remember your name but I might only have a vague sense that we’ve been introduced. It’s embarrassing and makes me very socially awkward.
7. I have OCD, depression and anxiety disorders. Yay me! All are more or less managed with medications. All still impact my life and the way that I live.
8. I cannot stand to have anything dry and dirty/dusty on my hands. I once nearly broke my arm running to wash my hands off when I accidentally got them into some dirt. I was 4 years old. This is not something that has improved with time. *shudders*
9. I have misophonia and am extremely sensitive to loud noises. Some of this is related to my anxiety disorder and some of it comes from having had such serious ear infections as a child that I was literally deaf for a time while they tried to clear them up. Now my ears are very sensitive.
10. When I was younger I had a second degree sunburn (thank you day care) along with sun poisoning and heat exhaustion. I spent a couple of weeks in the hospital spiking fevers and having seizures while the doctors tried to keep my body temperature down. As a result of this I have very little to no tolerance for heat and sun exposure. My body simply overreacts and I get very sick very quickly.

How else do you explain Dumbledore, Snape, Fred, Lupid, Tonks, Hedwig, and Dobby?
I just fucking lost my shit.
Everyone is talking about the changes to tumblr and my tumblr still looks the same so I’m currently in that mode like after Indiana Jones switches out the statue but before the giant ball actually rolls onto the screen. Terrified anticipation.
I’m right there with you. It is a most uncomfortable position. *nods*
- Friend without a tumblr: I wanna show you something
- Me: I've seen that
- This happens to me with my work friends all the time.
- Happens to me with my husband all the time - he doesn't have a Tumblr so he's always behind on the interwebz.
- Me, in every math class EVER!
People Magazine’s review on ‘The Great Gatsby’
READ A BOOK
The People magazine writer then looked at the graph above and wondered aloud why “the spaceship was veering away from the star.”
And somewhere this reviewer’s High School English teacher is weeping bitter tears.
