My book report on Ever After for Ms. Camiwillknow
The biggest clue for dating this movie is that it’s during the reign of Francis I (1515-1547). Henry II was born in 1519, and he’s supposed to be about 21 in the film, so we can pretty comfortably put him in 1540. Leonardo da Vinci shows up, but he died in 1519. He also shows us a shiny new Mona Lisa, which was painted in 1505. The ghost of da Vinci also makes a joke about having to...

I tend to refrain from liking/reblogging gifsets from How I Met Your Mother because in order to completely capture my appreciation of the show, I’d have to a) reblog all of them every time I see one, and that would become my whole blog, or b) make a master legendary gifset of the entire series, broken down line by line, creating an endless-scrolling HIMYM graphic novel dashboard.

They’re airing an ad against Paul Ryan on the country stations. Country music listeners will hear about how Paul Ryan voted against funds for veterans’ medical and mental health benefits (including PTSD and suicide prevention resources). As you know, military families and country music listeners are heavily overlapping cohorts, and they need to know that the GOP is not their friend.
Some of us were trying to have a civilization here, but now I’ll be in my bunker watching Waterworld and all the Mad Max movies to prepare myself for the world we’ll apparently be inhabiting shortly.

What do the Republican Party and the Millennial Generation have in common? Neither of them can remember anything that happened before the Bush (43) administration.
The other reason Millennial Gen’ers don’t own houses is that the oldest ones are 22 years old, and you told them to stay in college.
