A Midsummer Night’s Dream @ Shakespeare’s Globe

Patrick and I have created an eternal vortex of Globe Midsummer Night’s Dream gifs. He blogs them from me, I blog them right back from him, and it never ever ends.

I saw rehearsals of this. And it was honestly one of the best things ever.

The day I woke up to all these house warming presents that came in the mail from @jaime_king and @kyle_newman  Huddled on the floor with joy  PS: find Olivia #WelcomeToNewYork

I hope people send me cast iron house warming presents when I move.

mooooonshoes-potter said: I've recently finished English (forever!), and I realised that I can read books that I actually want to read with all this spare time. So I've restarted American Gods, which I have been trying to read for about three years now. The thing is, I got about a hundred pages in when I first read it, and I don't want to start again from the beginning. Could you quickly summarise the first five chapters in the most obscure medium possible?

neil-gaiman:

I think you should just start again from the beginning. Things happen later in the book that are set up earlier. But if you feel like reading it again is too much like work, there are two audio book versions — one a full cast audio — that are really well done. You can get them online, and libraries often have audio books too, or can get them via interlibrary loan.

This make me happy, because libraries.

So earlier today I saw this post by therealelizabethbennet, but the data was from 1988, so I thought I would do some updated calculations.

Thanks for mentioning me & for doing this. You are a wonderful person and thank you from all the Janeites all over the world. You did us a great favor :)

anti-christophobia:

Repeat after me:

Christianity is NOT the Westboro Baptist Church

Christianity is NOT the Westboro Baptist Church

Christianity is NOT the Westboro Baptist Church

CHRISTIANITY. IS. NOT. THE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH.

Stop acting like the two are mutually inclusive.
