  • 2:do you like the feeling of cold air on your cheeks on a wintery day? Think I’m indifferent to this. Don’t like my face being too cold but like to be able to snuggle into a scarf 🙂
  • 4:how do you take your coffee/tea? Coffee – just a bit of milk/whitener/cream. Tea – it depends on the type, if ‘regular’ a tiny amount of milk. Other tea types just as it is nothing added. 

  • 29:what’s something really cute that one of your friends does and is totally endearing?  When one friend is about to sneeze her hands ball up and shake until the sneeze happens. It’s like this massive build up to a very tiny noise. Also if you stop her hands moving she can’t sneeze 
  • 68:what’s winter like where you live? North England so – wet and generally cold. If we do get a bit of snow the country shuts down because we’re ridiculous.
  • 74:describe a good friend of yours without using their name or gendered pronouns. This person had been a good friend since I smiled at them on the first day of Uni – we’ve been through some epic times as well as some emotional ones and they’re one of the strongest people I know. Former drinking buddy who turned into des (designated driver). Always willing to drop everything not just for me but for everyone they know. Cares about people and makes every effort to just be there.

    Not sure if that’s the type of answer the question’s is asking for or does it mean more of a – height, race, hair/eye colour, identifying features etc answer?? 

  • 1:when you have cereal, do you have more milk than cereal or more cereal than milk? Don’t really eat cereal – in the past I’d eat it dry

  • 3:what random objects do you use to bookmark your books? I mostly us my Kindle nowadays but before it’d be anything lying around – train tickets, Cyberdog clothing labels, actual bookmarks – well the card freebie ones 
  • 7:do you name your plants? I have one plant (that I’m really surprised I haven’t killed yet) a friend named him Cedric
  • 23:what’s your favorite thing to do on lazy days where you have 0 obligations? Oh God these days exist? I like to be productive so generally have a lot of things on my ‘to-do’ list at any given moment. So I guess working on something from that – writing or knitting while watching random shows probably top the list. Reading is a very close second.  
  • 30:think of it: have you ever been truly scared? I’m severely scared of spiders – I’ve pretty much worked myself into panic attacks with them, does that count?
  • 32:tell us a story of something that happened to you after 3AM when you were with friends. Not exciting but the first thing that jumps to mind is going out for a quick drink (to my favourite nightclub that no longer exists) we we’re aiming to be home by 00:00….I remember being stood in a takeout in full on cybergoth gear while my friend got pizza, then we walked home getting there at 05:00…quick drink my arse

    Can’t think of anything else were I recall it being past 03:00

  • 54:who’s the last person you saw with a true look of sadness on their face? I have no idea, I don’t tend to look at peoples faces. If actors count it’d probably be Chris Pine if not then it might be a random guy I bumped into on ICU, who’d been told his friend was on her way out 😦 I think he looked sad anyway, maybe it was anxious. 
  • 70:have you ever used a ouija board? Nope
  • 71:what’s your favorite kind of tea? I’m assuming we’re talking about the drink here? I doubt I could pick, I have a lot of tea and like it all – ‘regular’ tea I either drink ‘Yorkshire Tea’ or Tetley . I do like all the other type though and tend to get addicted to Earl Grey randomly
  • 87:what are some movies you think everyone should watch at least once in their lives? Not the best person to ask this of, I’ve hardly seen anything, seriously I constantly get people telling my they’ll give me lists to work through – Harry Potter is my ‘go to’ when I just want something random on or if I’m sick (POA especially) but other than that I can’t really think of any ‘you must watch this’
  • 100:if you were presented with two buttons, one that allows you to go 5 years into the past, the other 5 years into the future, which one would you press? why? I’d probably pick the past. I don’t think I want to know what’s going to happen in the future. There could be something horrific around the corner. Yeah the past probably, 5 years would take me back to 26, my favourite club was still there so I’d go and enjoy the crap outta it! 🙂

Oh and here’s a photos of most of my tea drawer…see that questions was difficult 😛

Chekov being grossed out/overwhelmed by Kirk is THESE awful, horrible pants: 


requested by spockvarietyhour


Posted: March 2, 2016 in Uncategorized


please be honest with people this year, do it for them and do it for yourself



I regretfully must inform you that I do indeed still watch Teen Wolf, even though I am left asking myself the same exact question after every new episode, namely, “Why the fuck am I still watching this horrendous trainwreck of a show?”

And the answer is unfortunately always the same. Because I love Stiles and Dylan O’Brien too much to just abandon it while he’s still there. 

As for the finale; of course they’re going to find a way to save Mason because they need to maintain their reputation as such a “diverse” show, you know? And you know what else is gonna happen in the finale? They’re probably going to put Stiles and Malia back together because obviously that’s what that show needs; more fucked up romantic relationships between a character who is in desperate need of therapy after all the shit he’s gone through lately, and a character who makes no sense whatsoever. (Yeah, living as a wild animal for like 8 years in the woods totally makes you ready to graduate High School and enables you with the social skills, interests and desires of a normal human teenager after only a few months. Makes total sense.) 

And let’s not forget that saving Mason is also going to be vital to keeping Scott McCall the True Alpha™ the main attraction of the show because, let’s be real, Teen Wolf became The Scott McCall Show ages ago. And you can’t have the Scott McCall show without Scott McCall, Hero and True Alpha™.

There’s also going to be lots of slow motion, though I doubt the producers can top last week’s episode, where there was an actual slow motion scene of people not even doing anything. Not even moving. Because slow motion for everyone, everywhere, at all times! Oh, and I think we can definitely count on there being some form of unnecessary, uncomfortable romance thrown into the mix. Probably several scenes like that, because it is the season finale, after all, and you can’t have a Scott McCall Show season finale without the uncomfortable romance scenes, right? 

And at the end of the finale, everyone will be in love with about 600 new plotholes emerging, and God knows what not, and I’ll be left sitting there, once again asking myself why I put myself through the horrendous torture that is watching Teen Wolf every single week. 

Then awaits a blissful period of several months of no Teen Wolf, in which I will still be praying to everything there is to pray to that someone, for the love of Derek Hale, will either make Stiles pack up all his shit and the Sheriff, and abandon Beacon Hills and everyone in it for good because Beacon Hills doesn’t deserve the Stilinskis, and Teen Wolf doesn’t deserve Dylan O’Brien and Linden Ashby, so I can stop watching this shit. Or that the people in charge will finally, finally, come to their senses and make season 6 the last ever season of The Scott McCall, True Alpha™, show and put us all out of our misery.

And as a final note; I really fucking miss Derek Hale.

This turned into a full-fledged rant. I’m sorry. I have a lot of rage about Teen Wolf.

Yeah, I’m kinda glad I quit watching once Hoechlin left.

The Lagoon Nebula in Hydrogen Sulfur and Oxygen : The majestic Lagoon Nebula is filled with hot gas and the home for many young stars. Spanning 100 light years across while lying only about 5000 light years distant, the Lagoon Nebula is so big and bright that it can be seen without a telescope toward the constellation of the Archer and displayed in enhanced color. The featured picture is a newly processed panorama of M8, capturing twice the diameter of the Full Moon. Star formation continues in the Lagoon Nebula as witnessed by the many globules that exist there. via NASA
