My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.

Dude I want this sitcom

is generally just really excited about dragons

#about me 

mementomakomori:

kellysue told me to go for a walk. Given that I was wearing a Carol shirt and had sat around all day watching tennis, I thought I ought to listen.

Refraining from even plugging in my headphones, just enjoying the sounds of the world. I’ll report back on my findings later :)

Report:

  1. I really miss playing soccer. I regret being too afraid to play for the PSP intramural team in college and using the excuse that I would be too intense for them. But really I was just scared. :(

    Two high school teams were warming up for games in the park and I wanted to join them so badly.

  2. I stopped and swung on some swings. It was nice but I got a bit motion sick because it was so hot out.
  3. I passed my old high school friend’s dad 3 times because we were walking opposite loops through the park. Then he almost passed me a 4th time as we were both walking home through the neighborhood. He was walking faster than me but I turned off onto my street before he caught me.
  4. It was really hot.
  5. I passed the cross country team and I felt bad for them running in the heat.
  6. I left my headphones out the whole time and it was kinda nice. I love listening to music while I walk but it was good to just be on reduced stimulation for a while. 
  7. I need to go on more walks. I loved walking to and from class and am not doing that anymore. Even when I’m not able to run, I should do walking. 
  8. Thanks, Kelly Sue!

I’m still said this painting was down when I went to the Tate Britain :(

The Fratellis - Whistle For The Choir

Well it’s a big big city and it’s always the same
Can never be too pretty tell me your name
Is it out of line if I were so bold to say “Would you be mine”?

This weekend, I was toying around with Photoshop, sacrificed 20% of my eyesight to the gods Ghibli, and there was this GIF of my creation. And since in 55 short days, BEWARE THE WILD will arrive in the world, I figure this means it’s time for a GIFaway!
(I’m sorry).
(I’m not sorry). 
However, there’s a catch. I only have one remaining ARC, and I’m afraid to say it’s not in great shape as it’s been defaced by maggie-stiefvater and a silver sharpie.
In the interest of full disclosure, I’m including a picture so you can judge for yourself.

Want it? All you need to do is reblog this post or post the GIF above plus some version of….
"Southern Gothic gets a whole new twist in Natalie C. Parker’s debut novel. Beware the Wild is a riveting and atmospheric page-turner readers won’t want to miss! Pre-order your copy now!”
#Beware the Wild Contest
….sometime in the next 24 hours and you’re entered. US only, please. Only one re/blog counts and “likes” do not count. 
BONUS, I have something else to throw into the pot. No, it’s not another GIF.
(I regret I have but one GIF to GIF!)
(……still not sorry).
To keep with this theme of beasts on wheels (which, oddly enough, refer to the doodles AND Maggie), I’m also including this doodled upon UK ARC of SINNER.   

I’ll post the winner on Tuesday, August 26th at 1pm CST. 
Good luck!

I am SO EXCITED for this book that I am doing this again:

I don’t do Sokka’s flaily arms lightly, so you know that means something big. GO LOCATE YOUR NEAREST INDIE BOOKSTORE AND STOP IN OR CALL THEM OR GO ON THEIR WEBSITE AND PRE-ORDER. YOU WILL MAKE A BOOKSELLER VERY HAPPY AND ALSO TELL THEM THAT THIS IS A BOOK THAT PEOPLE WANT SO THEY SHOULD PUT IT ON THEIR SHELVES!!!
Or if you are so inclined feel free to click HERE to preorder from an indie near and dear to my heart (and not just because they sign my paycheck) and I will be able to personally confirm your order will be shipped to you! 
tl;dr - BUY THIS BOOK.
