poison—paradigm: is anyone else worried about this position change for Officer Mary? is she getting paid more? does anyone else think this smells kind of like wanting to “tighten up” the Public Safety force by removing the friendly, reasonable person? i hope it’s a higher salary. that’s the only thing that will make it okay in my head. I really hope so. Because yes and yes.

And I reminded them they could dance with whomever they want, and then one of...
coffeewithants replied to your post: Grrrcampthings. Boo that is so shitty, I’m really sorry. =( I bet the campers think you’re pretty great, though. Yep. Sometimes they seem to, and sometimes they forget that adults are actually adults (a lot of these kids come from pretty spoiled backgrounds). But I’m getting in some good conversations about the evils of homophobia, the gender binary,...

Actually, this is a pretty cool job. Intense, but cool.

But. Don’t have known me for a week and a half and come...

lliampayne: why would you stop eating oreos because they support gay rights thats like refusing to drink water because terrorists drink water I’m sorry… is the act of supporting human rights now being compared to groups of people who sacrifice many people’s rights for a certain list of political privileges and sometimes rights for a group of people? Really? (I get the...
brienne—of—tarth: ladofthewildeknight: This is obviously somewhat problematic. I think most of this is him trying to comment on trends that he sees getting in the way of diversity and rights being prevalent and supported, and generally NOT trying to victim-blame. That it comes across that way is possibly his fault, and also possibly the fault of the paper. And, of course, a couple...

Camp and Friends.
1. One kid during an activity, spent an hour and fifteen minutes cutting out perfect letters out of white paper to post on a pink background so that it said “YOLO”, to go on her dorm door. During the icebreaker, she told everyone her spirit animal was kittens. I have found the rising K.T. Henz. 2. One of my two supervisors is Jess’s doppleganger. This person has one of...
For the confusèd among you.
Old English (Anglo-Saxon): Eft he axode, hu ðære ðeode nama wære þe hi of comon. Him wæs geandwyrd, þæt hi Angle genemnode wæron. Þa cwæð he, "Rihtlice hi sind Angle gehatene, for ðan ðe hi engla wlite habbað, and swilcum gedafenað þæt hi on heofonum engla geferan beon."
Middle English: In þat lond ben trees þat beren wolle, as þogh it were of scheep; whereof men maken clothes, and all þing þat may ben made of wolle. In þat contree ben many ipotaynes, þat dwellen som tyme in the water, and somtyme on the lond: and þei ben half man and half hors, as I haue seyd before; and þei eten men, whan þei may take hem.
Early Modern English: But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she Be not her maid, since she is envious; Her vestal livery is but sick and green And none but fools do wear it; cast it off. It is my lady, O, it is my love!
Modern English: Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn't hold with such nonsense.
bloodofthepen asked: Your fathers are Sherlock Holmes and John Watson--they found you somewhere, and have no clues as to your original parentage (if you indeed have any; probably the lovechild of Catherine and Heathcliff). You were able to visit your godfather Edmund Dantes in the summers (during which visits you had the fortune of taking music lessons from Erik), and were left with Susan Sto Helit often before you...

bloodofthepen: Once, when I was about ten years old, my parents took me to see my cousin (in high school at the time) play in the marching band at one of the school’s football games. The whole thing was quite dull (watching other people play with a ball for long periods of time is no fun at all) and I was glad to leave at the game’s end. On the way out, I saw a young woman, probably twenty or...

I think training here is some sort of conditioning
in which they drain you of sleep and energy, and spend so much time on the minds and ways to respond to potential general scenarios involving children of this age, that you are so focused on their perspective that you begin to feel like your real life is being withheld as ransom for your paycheck. I generally can deal with kids. Butbutbut… Ah, well. Tomorrow begins their normal schedules...
