The funny thing about introverts is once they feel comfortable with you, they can be the funniest, most enjoyable people to be around. It’s like a secret they feel comfortable sharing with you. Except the secret is their personality

All for that last tweet

Yes, that last tweet.
I’ve never understood people who get riled by ‘celebs’ voicing an opinion. 

As if being successful somehow strips you of your right to participate in discussion, to get angry, to care.

And this right now is something that needs a lot of raised voices.

I know a lot of creative people and perhaps by correlation I know a lot of people who struggle with depression. They have told me (and they’ve told the world) how depression sits there, implacable, and drains the color out of the world until no success or joy matters. I believe them, and it becomes increasingly evident that no matter who you are or what you’ve achieved, that depression is a good liar and can make you believe none of it matters.
I know and love too many people with depression to believe that it’s something that’s shameful to talk about or to acknowledge. I want them alive and I want them here with us. If you have depression I want you alive and here with us. Don’t let the moment take you. Don’t be afraid to get help. The people who love you want you here. Believe it.

By accident. On purpose. Never on accident.

ALSO, ‘amount’ and ‘number’ follow the same rules as ‘less’ and ‘fewer’, respectively. it’s not an ‘amount’ of people, it’s a number of people; by contrast, it IS an ‘amount of water’, etc.

Yeah - just try telling that ot West Collins…


Nerd HQ - Jensen Ackles Photoset

This was the moment in the panel when a girl got up and opened with:
"I’m asking a question for my sister who didn’t get a ticket"
Of course the comedians on stage were all
"Where is she?"
"Why isn’t she here?" "Is she a loser?"
"She must be a LOSER!!"
And then the girl herself was questioned - “What kind of sister are you not giving up your ticket for her” ‘What’s her name??”

This poor girl finally got out that her sister’s name was Catherine. They all said Hi Catherine but Mark got his wires crossed and thought this girl had introduced herself as Catherine…how many Catherines were there?

This girl (who is awesome by the way) went on (addressing Mark) to say “Oh it must be your accent. You’re really hard to understand”

The panel fell about with Ohhhhhhh!!! noises and shocked faces. And I managed to grab Jensen’s sequence - including his expression when both Jared and Aisha ran up the stairs trying to give this girl 20 dollar notes for her awesome response.

It was, suffice to say, a brilliantly entertaining moment.

What I did on my summer GISHcation: Item 146



IMAGE. Create an image of the Elopus and Wooster in an epic battle for mascot supremacy. 23 points


I ended up pinch-hitting this one at the very last minute — literally in the final 90 minutes of the hunt, submitting it with 14 minutes to spare — when a teammate had to tap out.


Of all the amazing things you created this week, this was probably my favourite, partly due to you taking it on last minute, but also because it is simply beautiful in its own right…
