i like guacamoledragon. also i like your drunk textposts

dont understand any of them bc i am not a cool kid
they’re all weird fandom-y ones don’t worry it means you’re the cool one and i’m not
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just ones that have touched you. Then tag ten other folks etc. etc. you all know how this goes

ok wtf is this night vale shit
welcome to night vale is free podcast done in the style of ~public broadcast community radio about this little town called night vale wherein the weirdest supernatural shit happens but everyone acts like it’s totally normal and it’s all narrated by this guy named cecil who occasionally takes a break from reporting the weird ass shit to moon over this new scientist who’s arrived in town named carlos (carlos literally seems to be the only one concerned with how fucking weird this town is)
and it’s lovely and funny and clever and charming and CREEPY AS FUCK OMG and it’s all i’ve done for the past few days

What is your favorite kind of pie?
fuuuuuuuuuck um, probably apple? i’ll eat any kind of baked apple anything ever, but i am very partial to any berry pies, especially strawberry rhubarb
If you could visit any place in the world for a week, where would you go?
to be perfectly honest, there really isn’t anywhere in the world that i want to be more than i am right now - but if this were more of a ‘in the future~’ sort of thing, then probably england again, i miss it a lot!
What social issue is most important to you?
this is tough to say, because i feel like so much of what i care about is interconnected - but for me, providing quality education to every student in our educational system/improving that system is the thing i’m most invested it and what i’m wrangling with right now
If you could bring back one TV show, which show would you choose?
Do you have any pets?
yes! well, technically my dog is my brother’s dog, but she’s a family pet. her name is chanel but we all think it’s a dumb name (my brother named her sigh) so we just call her puppy or puppy monster. this is her tag.
What accomplishment gives you the greatest sense of pride?
it’s kind of a toss up between getting into college and getting into my grad program, both were pretty exclusive as far as numbers go and both acceptances meant i was saving me/my family a lot of money. also it meant that other people saw in me something that i wasn’t really sure was there, which was nice
Tell me about your favorite childhood memory.
i can’t remember what birthday party it was but my parents went all out and got this artist lady who brought costumes and all this crazy stuff and props and all my friends were there and we played and dressed up and it was basically the greatest birthday of all time - plus my mom made me the prettiest cake of all time so that was cool too.
What’s your favorite drink?
water with lemon, coke zero - as far as alcohol goes, then nothing really beats a good margarita for me
Who are your favorite TV characters?
sam winchester from spn, penelope garcia from criminal minds, donna noble from doctor who, nasir & agron from spartacus, danny williams from h50, rodney mckay from sga, toph from avatar & when i was still watching glee, sam evans & kurt hummel.
What’s the best way to spend a day off, in your opinion?
honestly it varies because there are some days that i need different things to make sure i’m looking after myself properly - generally that amounts to being alone for much of it, watching tv, writing, cooking/baking and listening to music. if i feel up to it, spending time with my family or with a few close friends is good too - but i’m very much an introvert and if i have a stressful day of dealing with people, the best thing for me is really to just hunker down and recharge.
What is your favorite movie? Why do you love it so much?
oh goshhhhh, the extended editions of the lord of the rings, i think. i don’t know if i’d say that they’re the best movies of all time or anything like that, but they’re certainly movies that make me feel good and make me cry and fill me with inspiration. i can sit through all of them in a single day, which should tell you something. i’ve loved them since as long as i can remember and i watch them all the way through a few times a year!
