I had an alcoholic drink at a restaurant for the first time tonight!  It’s a silly milestone, but not any less so than when I turned 18 and bought a lottery ticket.  It was fruity and fun, but not any more fun than it would have been without gin.  There was some of the richest Thai food of my life (green curry with seafood and noodles covered in peanut sauce) and I had fun hanging out with my mom, and also my drink had passionfruit juice, which is a million times more important than alcohol.

I love how when they “stopped off” in Portland and Hardison immediately:

1. Bought a microbrewery/bistropub
2. Turned the back rooms into their office
3. Found them a client

Elliot objected because FOOD MATCHING WITH MICROBREWS IS VERY DIFFICULT

THE BREW PUB MENU IS THE MOST DIFFICULT MENU OKAY

I also love how they cut a hole in that wall with a CHAIN SAW and we never ever even once saw a door there, or another space. They just did that to fuck with Nate and I approve.

Six months after Nate and Sophie leave Portland, that damned painting mysteriously appears outside their villa in Comporta. Nate tries to ban it from the house. Sophie makes him sleep on the porch until he learns how to graciously accept a gift like a functional human being.

I love how Hardison approaches moving into Nate’s life especially. Like, “uh, excuse me, I think it’s more like you retroactively moved into my life. My property. This property. That I own.” 

I wrote a paper on Leverage last year for a Communication course.  Hardison actually shows a lot of the after-effects of poverty: food hoarding (soda hoarding), buying things instead of saving money (which is why he’s lucky someone with his skills will never run out), and probably lots of other things we don’t see because we only see things that happen during and around a heist.  But that just adds another layer of sweetness to the way Hardison keeps buying buildings and businesses: he’s making sure the whole crew is looked after so he can know they have a roof over their heads.  In the fifth season, he buys a freaking restaurant.  If that doesn’t say “I care about your well-being,” I don’t know what does.  He protects the crew by keeping them off the parts of the internet they don’t want to be on and helps them by making them webpages and profiles.

Idk, Hardison is just a sweetheart and he makes me happy.  I like to think he anonymously put a ton of money into Nana’s bank account and started a children’s foster care and adoption fund dedicated to her.

But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

just a reminder: we’re two periods away from 2014.

you couldn’t just say months you had to measure time with your menstrual cycle

fUN FACT. the earliest form of a calender that’s ever been found was to keep track of an ancient person’s menstrual cycle. ppl with vaginas invented time. there is a reason that months are about the same length as the time between periods. that is all.

Other fun fact: “month” and “moon” sound the same for a reason.  The crimson tide isn’t controlled by the moon, but it takes about the same amount of time as a lunar cycle.  Take a guess as to why there are so many moon goddesses and why cultures with mother goddesses tend to give importance to the lunar cycle.
