    • It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to

      2 years ago

      sakurastar

      I hate to be so self indulgent but this is one of the few days where I have an excuse and I just need to let it out. I'm working at a summer camp where a lot of the staff are grumpy and unpleasant, I'm working all day, teaching, making tests and taking moody teenagers around town and I feel MISERABLE. Obviously I can't go to RTX which is killing me and it's still another week before I can leave this camp and see any friends or family. All I have to remind me that it's supposed to be my birthday is a handful of cards my family (very kindly)sent to me here. The final cherry on the crap cake is even though none of my mean co-workers give 2 fucks it's my birthday I at least want to buy myself a little treat but I can't have any fucking cake from the local shop because I can't eat wheat.

      Excuse me while I revert to a childhood state and cry.

      Just Wandering around Velen, destroying monster nests and ignoring roach, (stupid horse) and this horrible, freakish looking thing appears in the woods in front of me and kills me in one hit!

      It looks a lot like the Jersey Devil from the wolf among us.

      This thing! This horrible looking thing! Does anyone know the name of it so I can look up how to kill it?

    • MAJOR SHOE HAUL!

      Early Birthday pressies! Went out shopping with my mum and got lovely, lovely shoes smiley0.gif .
      Now don't get me wrong, I don't usually give a fuck about shoes, I never wear high heels, why would I? They hurt, screw that! But I've really been getting into fitness lately, doing a lot of aerobics and going for a long walks so I'm really excited to have some plushy new shoes. I'm also going to work at a summer camp soon so will be doing a lot of walking all day, every day and I my feet still remember how hard that was last year. They deserve a bit of a treat.

      The only problem is I may now have an addiction to trainers. Walking around all day in my skechers with memory foam in them I'm like a spoilt child bouncing on clouds smiley0.gifsmiley0.gif . This isn't gonna be enough for long, I want all the colours!!!

    • FIlm Quotes Quiz

      2 years ago

      sakurastar

      I love films and quizzes and had a bit of a free time this afternoon so I thought what the hell? I'll make my own. These are all well known films, a lot of which are classics so they shouldn't be too difficult but I've tried to avoid quotes that are too obvious.
      I hope you like it, let me know if it's too easy or too hard.

      Name the film:


      1. "Anybody not wearing 2billion sunblock is gonna have a real bad day, get it?"


      2. "Am I gonna believe all them bad things those fools said about me today?"


      3. "Victims, aren't we all?"


      4."We're gonna be okay?"
      "I wouldn't lie to you."


      5. "Pay for that pee stick when you're done. Don't think it's yours just 'cos you marked it with your urine."


      6. "That woman deserves her vengeance and we deserve to die."


      7. "It's about 2 foot tall, long slender neck, orange and black bill."
      "Anything else?"
      "Well, it's a swan."


      8. "Try blue, it's the new red!"


      9. "On the day of my judgement when I stand before God and he asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am i going to say? That it was my job?"


      10. "This is one time when television fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."


      11. "Oh I'm chasing this guy, no, he's chasing me."


      12. "Tell him what time his father died. Tell him that I-"
      "No. He won't even know your name."


      13. "Have you been chasing me your whole life only to fail now? I think that's the worst thing I've ever heard. How marvellous."



      14. "It is so easy to commit embarrassing blunders but etiquette tells us just what is expected of us and guards from all humiliation and discomfort. Hmm, yes, boring."


      15. "Your orders were for your protection."
      "I think we can handle one little girl. I sent 2 units, they're bringing her down now."
      "No lieutenant your men are already dead."



      16. "I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't wanna know. Some things are best left unsaid."


      17. "Rocket launcher, arrow launcher with explosive poisonous gas heads, (very practical) our famous net launcher, the always efficient flame thrower, my favourite. "


      18. "I took your life...He gave you another one."
      "And here it is and I hate you both."

      19. "But it's only a story."
      "That's what I'm talking about. The ones you read are safe."
      "And that one isn't?"

      20. "Clever girl."

    • Orange is the new black FAVOURITES

      2 years ago

      sakurastar

      Spent the weekend watching Season 3 and I've gotta say it absolutely KILLED IT! It was funny, dramatic, harsh and heartbreaking at times and I was completely glued to the screen through all 13 episodes.
      I have been hooked on this program since I caught onto it last year and it has to be said that it's a breath of fresh air to see a program with predominantly female characters (who are incredibly well rounded) that isn't a romance and with so much variety! There's a mixture of ages, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, classes and religions and it needs to be done a hell of a lot more on screen!

      If you haven't got into yet or you're also a fan, I just felt like letting me fangirl take over and go over some of my favourite characters from season 1-3:


      1. Poussey

      No, not pussy, it's Poussey.

      tumblr_n976e7hlnu1s99nn5o1_250.gif

      I absolutely love her. She's funny and sweet and her relationship with her best friend (Taystee) is fantastic. She's had a rough time but she keeps going.and she is endlessly loyal. I really like how her story arc has come out. She doesn't change that much I don't think but she definitely goes through hardship and we get to see more of what's underneath. I hated Vee for the schism she created between Poussey and Taystee and how she isolated her. Then season 3 roles around and you see some of the scars that's left. She's lonely, she has her friends but they turned on her last season. She mourns the loss of her mother and she needs someone to love. I really hope that she forges a real relationship with Brook and the she will make her happy.
      2. Suzanne 'crazy eyes'

      giphy.gif

      I was a bit creeped out by her at first but as the series go on she is infinitely complicated and interesting (and funny). She clearly has some kind of mental condition and she is so childlike, which can be really sweet and innocent or awful. She's very intelligent and in her moments of clarity can be incredibly deep and just heart breaking.
      When she asks, "Why does everyone call me crazy eyes?" and when she hears her description as a crazy, stalker on the radio and she's in tears, oh my heart hurt smiley4.gif .

      3. Penssatucky a.k.a Tiffany Doggett

      Because-time-Pennsatucky-uses-phrase-pot

      [color=]A lot of this is spoiler filled for later season so be warned

      She starts out as antagonist and she's a character you love to hate. She's incredibly stupid and biggoted but her naviety is often hilarious. I started off hating this character HOWEVER as the series has progressed her character has come on in leaps and bounds. She lost all her lackeys and her fake Christianity is revealed and she forms a pretty firm friendship with Big Boo. I love LOVE their relationship. Pennssatucky becomes more and more open minded about the world (yeah she's not perfect but she's getting there) and we see how her messed up childhood and adolescence has led her to where she is today. Her story in the last season and her relationship with sex is so disturbing and upsetting I just wanted to cry and get those assholes that hurt her. I hope to see a lot more of her and Big Boo in the future.

      4. Miss Rosa

      Rosa6.gif

      Miss Rosa is one of the toughest characters in the program. We know she has cancer from the start and she's going through chemotherapy and essentially dying in prison. She has a very sharp tongue and doesn't give a fuck about what anyone else thinks of her. In her younger days she was a bank robber and she had an addiction to the thrill and the rush of crime. She was made for it. Her scenes with the 'shitpot' are excellent and very moving. She also has the coolest, most satisfying moment in the series so far, driving out of prison in a blaze of glory and running over Vee who slighted her once, she is alive again and she fucking loved it! I miss that character but that was the best ending you could ever hope for.

      5. The Golden Girls
      tumblr_n9tgk1uIIc1si3tc1o4_500.gif

      I can't really separate them because they are so good together. I loved them almost immediately when Red ended up at their table. They know they're old but they definitely should not to be taken lightly. They are probably some of the worst offenders in the prison and I wouldn't put it past any of them, (except maybe Jimmy) to shank anybody that gets in their way. Frieda is probably my favourite, she's tough and sarcastic. Taslitz shanking that woman was badass, just a shame she didn't get to kill Vee! Jimmy's story was just so upsetting and realistic it was hard to watch. It probably hit me quite close to home because my Grandma suffers with increasingly worse dementia and watching that poor old woman getting dragged away and sent off somewhere alone to fend for herself and probably end up dying by the side of the road somewhere was awful. She doesn't know what's going on, she doesn't remember who anyone is and she needs help. Thinking about how this happens in real life and these poor people are dropped by the government because they're costing too much is sick and awful.


      Those are some of my absolute faves. There are too many too put up her in one post but I've just binge watched the whole series over the weekend with the new season and wanted to talk about it so much!! Ok, sorry, love rant over!

      Hello. Thanks for adding me. Who's your favorite British comedian?

      • tanukivilla FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        Bill Bailey and Dara O Briain are both hilarious; haven't heard much Dylan Moran. Loved Bill in Black Books. I'm a big fan of Mitchell and Webb, Sean Lock, Stephen Fry, Catherine Tate, Noel Fielding, and French and Saunders.

        So how's life in Spain? Enjoying the change in cuisine? I actually have a friend living and working in Madrid right now.

        Hmm, that's a toughie, I love standup and there are a lot of comedians I love. Possibly Bill Bailey is my favourite English comedian at the moment but overall it's either Dylan Moran or Dara O Briain but they're Irish not British. You?
