Ok guys. How many have you have heard the phrase “she acts like butter won’t melt in her mouth” and if you did what was the context, what did it mean, and what is the geographical location (generalized is fine) where you heard it?
New neighborhood and the frequent “what grade are you in, have you started high school yet?” reactions from people I don’t know have emboldened me. I look young enough to trick or treat. If you don’t think I’m fully going to take advantage of that you really underestimate my love of free candy.
Only problem is I need a costume that will hide the very much NOT pre or mid puberty curves. I’m thinking bedsheet ghost. No, I’m serious.
swan2swan said: The poop has already GOTTEN real. It just gets much, much worse. I mean, you had the Krell saga. And the Mon Calamari adventures. So. Yeah. Wow.
True, it has been pretty real. Surprisingly I had been spoiled for VERY little of that particular season. Five I’m not really going in as blind though. And I worry.
Both sagas were very good. Actually I don’t have too many if any complaints for any of the plots/arcs/developments for season four. Even though I kept cracking up inappropriately at “mon calamari”. Such a silly and perfect and appropriate name for a squidlike people.
SWAN2SWAN SAID: WAIT, THE FOURTH OR THE THIRD? HOW MANY EPISODES HAVE YOU WATCHED???
Not a typo. Fourth. I finished the fourth season today.
My sister and her gang of Netflix hogging misfits went back to school today and worked all day yesterday and Tuesday. Soooo I powerhoused through it.
Excellent season. I loved Obi Wan’s arc and the reaction it got from Anakin. I felt like that more than really anything so far has the power to hush the people who thought his behavior in Revenge of the Sith was erratic and all too sudden. This series is really filling in the gaps very neatly and fleshing out the things that are chronologically yet to come. The seeds of Anakin’s doubt and hurt and issues trusting the Council in matters of personal importance are so hugely important. Goodness though when I go back and watch that movie again it’s going to hurt a lot more than it has in the past—seeing the downfall like that.
I really really loved the power and emotion behind all the reactions and interractions and behavior in these arcs. I fell in love with Ahsoka all over again in that one scene where Anakin was down and she’s standing protectively over him, ready to fight the bounty hunters tooth and nail if she had to. And of course Darth Maul bowled me over and caught me completely by surprise.
I’m told season 5 is where, as Bryan Konietzko would say, the poop gets real, and think I’ll take a couple days to brace for impact and feelings. But yes. I finished four.
Dog isn’t dying of raisin toxicity. For once her being a roly poly blubber beag has done her some good and her extra padding made the amount of raisin bread she somehow stole cause digestive distress but not death. She’s not even really super overweight but she has gained a few pounds in the new apartment (which doesn’t make TOO much sense as she lets a cat eat half her food and she’s been getting longer walks and more dog park time so maybe some is muscle mass?
Nick Jr. which was actually really surprising in quality and entertainment. Next week I’ma learn bout bees on Bubbleguppies.
there was a brief contemplation of letting my house cat into the tree in my yard to do something about the near Hitchcockian bird population. But then I realized that there’s so many birds they could easily gang up on and fight my boy, possibly hurting him. You literally would not believe the bird population in that one tree; it is unreal.
I finished the fourth season of Star Wars the Clone Wars. I have a few things drafted to finish and discuss tomorrow.
My family snuck out of the house to go shop at the mall because it’s getting to be new bra season again. The sneaking is because I live over a bra shop and the land lady would love us to shop there. But their prices are a little on the unholy end of the scale.
Laundry time. I don’t know how my family generates so much laundry…or what happens to every single left sock when it goes into the wash. Or why my father had a silver fork in his pocket. Again.
"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”
"I asked if Major Cabanaw had concerns for the safety of the cats. “Of course, we always want to ensure the safety of the cats, and the staff is great about keeping an eye out for them. But mostly, it’s the offenders keeping them safe. I have never once seen an offender kill his own cat. We screen them to be sure they have no history of animal abuse. But I’ll tell you this, there was a guy killed in here because he had spit soda pop onto someone else’s cat.”"
Cats now control the prisons. They now have an army.
This post went exactly where I expected. Well done.
