And the drama with the ex-house continues. Now they're bitching because husband put a new wooden ceiling into the bathroom. I repeat, he PUT. IN. A. NEW. WOODEN. CEILING. Because the old one was, quite frankly, fugly and oooold, and back when we moved in, we got the OK for it. Now it's all omg how could you you should have taken that down we wanted everything the way it was.

You know what, OK. You wanted everything the way it was? Then we'll go over there and remove the tiles from the bathroom walls. We're going to shoddily glue on the tiles from the windowsill and laugh when they come down. We'll remove all the wallpaper and put back the four layers of fugliness that used to be on the walls before we busted our asses renovating that place. You want your old baseboards back because they match the hardwood floor? Gladly. At least we won't have to put any holes in them because they already got more holes than swiss cheese.

20 bucks say that they'll blame the crumbling walls on us, too. Or the fact that the plywood! walls are kind of warped. You rented us a crumbling mess. We did the best we could to make it livable.



Cut for fandom talk. Or, why I love the Hannibal fandom. )

For the Radical Right, Obama victory brings fury and fear

I can't help but laugh at this, even if it is scary that these people exist.

The parts I'm laughing at? These:

"calling to calls for a new Southern secession, mass emigration to Europe, or even the break-up of the United States"

“If you can immigrate to Europe you start making plans"



Dear members of the Radical Right, let me give you a few facts about Europe.
- pretty much every country over here recognizes same sex marriage, and allows same sex couples to adopt
- a lot of our countries have universal health care. Britain and Germany even have state-mandated and supported universal health care.
- most countries have legal abortion which is even paid for by the various health care systems
- poor people are supported by the state via various benefit systems
- we have a shitton of openly atheist people, some of them holding public office
- we also have a shitton of muslims, some of which also hold public office. COLORED PEOPLE EVERYWHERE.
- for the white supremacists with neonazi affiliations: stay away from Germany. Unless you want to get arrested. Yes, we arrest people for that kind of shit. We also arrest holocaust deniers.
- do I even have to mention Sweden? Or the Netherlands? Really, those countries are pretty much your version of hell. SOCIALISM. SOCIALISM EVERYWHERE.
- while we're on that subject: business is much more regulated over here. Say bye-bye to your ideas of uninhibited capitalism.
- taxes. We have them. Often a lot higher than in the US. They support such things as health care, social security, free kindergardens and public schools that are actually pretty ok, and other such socialist stuff
- we have unions. Often very powerful ones. They see to it that overtime is paid, workers get raises and have rights that protect them from the worst etc. Also, once again, don't move to Germany. You wouldn't believe the power the unions have here. Also, 25+ days of paid vacation, bitches.
- no death penalty
- really strict gun laws in most countries. Say bye-bye to your private arsenal of killing machines. Oh, and you're not allowed to shoot people just because they're on your property. Or being black and looking suspicious.

PS: moving to Australia and Canada is also a bad move. But well, this kind of shit shows me that the Radical Right is mostly comprised of utter morons without any kind of education beyond the borders of their hate-filled little world.

So the husband and I live in this nice house in a nice quiet neighborhood. And I really like the house, but I am beginning to fucking LOATHE our neighbors.

Rant. With macros. )

For those who don't/didn't know it: I have a tumblr. It's mostly Loki, Tom Hiddleston, Avengers and cast, Stannis Baratheon, Game of Thrones and random zombies and lulz. I rarely post/reblog anything "of stubstance" because frankly, tumblr is my happy place where I go to when I really don't want to deal with that stuff.

And what I really hate is when I browse my dash and all I find is people hating on other people. Avengers fans hating on other Avengers fans for reblogging too much Loki/cast pictures/porn/ships. ASOIAF fans hating on GoT fans. All of this is usually done with an air of superiority that makes me want to puke all over my keyboard. This idea that you are a "better" fan because you have read the "original source". Or because you ship "canon pairings" or "rare pairings", unlike all the other "horrible slash fangirls" who just ship or like stuff for "the pretty". LIKE YOU DON'T DO THAT YOU HYPOCRITICAL ASSWIPES. Seriously, nothing pisses me off more than people who pretend their shit don't smell.

Also, if you don't want all that stuff on your dash? Then just follow people who blog about the same stuff you do! It's not that hard! I managed it, and I'm not particularly tumblr-savvy! So if you are annoyed about how the people you follow reblog too much Loki, UNFOLLOW them. Simple solution is simple. So yes, there's still the problem of a tag you follow containing too much stuff that you don't like, but honestly, what do you expect? That the world cater to YOUR whims? Tough shit, man, it won't. If you want specific pics or fics, well, maybe you shouldn't go looking for them on a website with hundreds of thousands of users that isn't really known for having the most refined search algorithm on the www.

This has been my rant for today. I'm outta here, the pool is calling.
