"Yeah, that's really really not the point of Mardi Gras.
There are traditionally carnivals and celebrations around that time. Mardi Gras is french for Fat Tuesday, which is the day before Ash Wednesday which kicks off Lent. Fat Tuesday is…"
"I gave up meat, sugar and caffeine. The actual restrictions are more specific than that but I don't want to bore you with dietary details.
I gave them up because I knew it would be hard and I figured if what we're celebrating or…"
"I was once travelling home on the busses and I stopped downtown for a while and I didn't have shoes and I hadn't slept much and I only had enough money to get home, which meant no eating until I got home which was still over an hour away…"
"At this point in our history there is no, "The Church." We've splintered so much that it's no longer down to the denomination, it's down to the church.
Semantics aside. I think some among the ranks have made a bad…"
"I believe there's no reason that gay marriage, gay rights, gay booty has to conflict with a christian faith life. IMO the Bible mentions it explicitly only once, in a book of the Bible that most Christians disregard anyway and as for Jesus…"
"No one is saying anything about judging. It is merely a suggestion to manage this site to make sure there is no spam, no discrimination or anything of the kind. Because that is not what we are here for and this is not something anyone wants."
"I can't say much for the storylines, I don't really read that many. The reason I avoided it though has to do with two factors. One, in 7th grade, everyone decided that japan was six billion times better than anything america has ever…"
"I don't think Edward's brute strength can match up to Stupefy. All harry has to do is hit him once and bam! Submission attained. Of course it may be hard to hit fast-moving edward, but if Harry has his Firebolt, he'll be able to dodge…"
"Self-regulation leads to 4chan. If I wanted 4chan, I would go to 4chan.
I want intelligent discussion and kind people, not childish fights and insults. You are not famous for the former, Kenny, but rather for the latter. As are numerous people on…"
"No, very few people care about those in other countries that they don't have to look at or deal with. But when you are faced with someone's pain directly, like when meeting a homeless man on the street or seeing someone get attacked or…"
I am an 18 year old girl who works, goes to school most times, is married, has an off again on again type of relationship with Harry Potter, which is currently on again, likes making comics and collages and writing children's fairy tales, can calculate moderately well in her head, but will never understand functions or ratios, loves cats, wants to learn other languages but has no talent for it, is deeply conflicted about where she stands in the world, enjoys cakes and cookies just a little too much, and is not attracted to men with muscles but is attracted to women with muscles and is tired of trying to justify it, because frankly it's a hard thing to explain. Also, I enjoy run-on sentences because if each sentence is meant to express an individual thought I should be able to signify that all of those things that I just listed, while capable of standing on their own, are actually meant to be a part of one, big, complicated thought, because people are complicated and multi-faceted and made up of hundreds of different parts and so are ideas. "Subject Verb Object" does not and can never adequately express the depth of any thought.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Favorite Book (Currently): The Church of Dead Girls by Stephen Dobyns
Favorite Movie (Currently): Ginger Snaps
Favorite Music: All of it.
Favorite Food: This is the place where I could list any number of things because food and our enjoyment of it is my favorite of human experiences, but I'm going to have to go with my number one comfort food, which I never get to have because my husband hates it. Hamburger Helper's Beef Stroganoff.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
A cashmere scarf that an ex got me from a street vendor downtown.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
The person who hates me most, because my happy dance is embarrassing, and I don't want to do it with someone I admire or someone who admires me, and I want to reinforce my enemies' hatred for me, because it feels like something that my enemies would enjoy.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
