cyprinella: Greta looking at the camera with a very serious face (serious greta)
[personal profile] cyprinella

Greta close upHemangiosarcoma.



I keep repeating the word in my head. It’s especially bad when I walk Greta in the mornings. It’s kinda weird when it happens when I’m doing a power press in weights class. Luckily when my eyes water there it just looks like sweat.

It’s a particularly nasty canine cancer of the blood vessels that shows up in middle aged large breed dogs the most. Most people find out their dog has it because it’s popped like an aneurysm and their dog goes into shock or dies suddenly. I got “lucky” in that I found it while rubbing her belly and noticed the lump.

People who follow me on twitter were treated to a fine rant about how when I called up my vet to make an appointment to get it checked, I was subtly mocked for calling up to say I had found a mass in her abdomen. My husband (who ended up taking her to the first appointments because I had a major work project launching that week) said the vet was actually really impressed I had found it because most owners wouldn’t have.

I’m still debating if discovering it did her any damn good. There’s not really good treatment for this particular cancer. Most of the first page of google results are the 1-3 month survival period after discovery with organ involvement. Of course, most of these cases are from animals that had spleens involved and it’s discovered due to the extreme internal bleeding. We lucky in that there’s wasn’t any organ involvement initially and we caught it before severe bleeding happened. However, chances are very high it will recur in a very short time period. We could do chemo. We haven’t talked to the oncologists yet because we’re both kinda like, why? This isn’t a cancer where they fade away and in a lot of pain. It’s a lot like living with a known weak vein. It’s gonna kill her and soon but we don’t know when.

And of course the killer (ha) is that post surgery, she’s in great shape. We had a crap week where she was in recovery, a frustrating week where she felt a lot better but was still on restriction and then this week where she’s back to her old self. Is she putting weight on because the tumor was removed or because we’re spoiling her? No idea. Is acting slow because it’s hot and humid or is it because she’s got a slow bleed? No idea.

So we’re spoiling her rotten and she gets walks without Zille so she can sniff all the things to her heart’s content. And I keep living on knife’s edge wondering if this is going to be the day I come home and she’s gone or, worse, going poorly.

This fucking sucks.

It’s CANON that Newt and Tina hook up. However no where in canon does it say they DIDN’T hook up with Percival Graves as well.

So for all we know. It could be canon. Until it specifically says “they did not hook up with percival graves at least once” it’s entirely possible.

Listen:  In the future, there is a small, quiet room that is just yours, where you are safe and you are free. In that room your shoulders will finally start to come down from around your ears.  Nobody can come into that room unless you let them.  In that clean quiet place, you will work and you will study.  You will love and you will heal.  I know this is true because I am there with you.  We are there together because you saved us.  You saved us because you were brave and because you never stopped believing in that room.

See you there,

How are women  suppose to get their bra off from under their clothes and secured properly to their face in time if there is a sudden leakage of lethal gas

Henry, you severely underestimate our abilities.

son, this bra clasps in the front, that is easy mode

Fact: Everyone who regularly wears a bra can get it off, barely disturbing the rest of their clothes, in under 20 seconds.

Please talk about the mummy returns

pristinepastel said: Hey, i know you like the first mummy, but what about the mummy returns?

I HAVE RETURNED…after like a day. 

but what the people want, the people get!


aka the only sequel that is 1000% just as good as the first one. like holy shit. 

ten years later and we meet our heroes again. rick and evie are happily married, going on adventures, and evie’s dream of becoming a respected scholar has come true and they’ve made a tiny human! 

the only unrealistic part being that they only had one kid, i mean they are still all over each other ten years later and you’re telling me they only had ONE kid.

okay. sure jan. 

but boy o’ boy is that one kid awesome! 

alex o’connell. this kid is literally:

50% evie super-klutz-genius. 

50% rick screams-at-things-that-are-illogical-to-scream-at. 

50% uncle jonathan’s sheer dumb luck and wit. 

10% i’m really bad at math. 

you get the point. HE’S GREAT. also the actor passed on harry potter because, JUST LIKE ME, the mummy 1999 was his favorite movie and he just HAD to be in the sequel. alex is just such a smart-ass little shit. that much like his mother, accidentally brings about the apocalypse by opening something he shouldn’t have:

ARDETH BAY TIME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. he has a much bigger role in this one. GOD BLESS. (because he was supposed to die in the first one, but test audiences loved him as much as we do, so they kept his fine ass around) he still looks prettier than everyone and is still so done with white people once again. 

*after almost being killed on he bus* “this was my first bus ride.”*after realizing they’re gonna make him fly again* “why can’t you people ever keep your feet on the ground?”

he’s just such an awesome A+ friend goals, because while he probably needs to go be with other medjai to prepare for battle against anubis’ army (yikes), he stays with the fam to rescue alex. it wasn’t even much of a thought for him really, rick and evie just batted their eyelashes and he was like: *sighs* “these white people are always messing my shit up, but they are my white people.”

jonathan: still beautifully the same as ever. witty, clever, and would do anything for his family. 

“be quiet alex! if there’s going to be any hysterics, they’ll come from me!”

“if you see anyone come running out screaming, it’s just me.”

when he boasts about being a good shot and ardeth is internally like “i’m gonna die.” THEN HE SAVES ARDETH. hell yeah.

rick: he’s still screaming at things. BUT IN DAD MODE. he’s the ultimate dad.

“you, lighten up. you, big trouble. you, get in the car.”*sweetly* “honey, what are you doing, these guys don’t use doors.”“knowing my brother-in-law, he probably deserves whatever you’re about to do to him, but this is my house and i have certain rules about snakes and dismemberment.”

evie: still a super-klutz nerd, but with C O N F I D E N C E. little baby librarian is now a honey badger of ASK ME IF I GIVE A FUCK! and also a re-incarnated princess

“no harm ever came from opening a chest.”

rick: “i swear that kid gets more and more like you every day.”evelyn: “you mean more attractive, sweet and devilishly charming?”

we meet izzy, another one of rick’s ex boyfriends, who is a much more reliable mode of transportation than previously mentioned murder buses. 

imhotep: still emo. still wants to make out with his gf.

anck su namun/meela: hella good villain. she bomb af and 100% wants to take over the world. amazing. she actually has like a really cool role this time too!!! like so much screen time. 

the rock…i mean the scorpion king, he’s another emo villain with goofy cgi rendering and like 4 million terrible made-for-TV spin off movies that you are lying if you haven’t watched at least one of them and felt that utter disappointment. but who cares the rock is pretty. and this was his first acting role and the reason we have him where he is today. 

thank you mummy returns for giving the world actor rock johnson #blessed


normal action movie sequel romance: same guy. different girl. repeat of first movie’s romance. hehehehhehehehhEHEHEHEHHEHH. 

not here bitch. 

rick and evie’s love has only grown stronger. they still bicker like old ladies at bingo night. the still look at each other like they hung the moon. they’re still disgusting jonathan because they CANNOT KEEP THEIR HANDS TO THEMSELVES. one kid my ass. they still support each other and protect each other like crazy. they love each other so much and it’s so healthy and pure and there is some good in this world mr. frodo.

the bottom line here is. what’s the point of watching the mummy 1999 if you aren’t going to watch the mummy returns immediately after?

you are putting a lot more thought into this than I did, sorry? tbh  that drabble didn’t go where I’d intended at all so, uhhhhhhhhhh…

Only whitebeard would know, I guess? Depends how old Marco is/how in tune he is with his instincts. Maybe he looks at Ace and thinks fey, but no one would think god. Still, in all the stories, gods have the power to pull up the deserving and make them into constellations, so.

idk where sabo is, get back to me on that.

I was kind of thinking Luffy and the Strawhats were gods, too? Like, happily kicking around the heavens, having adventures and watching the mortals but oh but what if–

what if it’s that Luffy is the youngest, but he’s the god of adventure and freedom (and gluttony), and keeping him all locked up in heaven, looking down at the seas and watching over everyone who has adventures, is about the cruelest thing that can possibly be done?

For his coming of age, they gift him a ship. He cries with joy, and everyone cries with him because it’s such a strong, pure emotion. That’s the thing about paradise, isn’t it? There’s no need for anything besides peace, and the depth and honesty of the feeling can’t be denied.

So Luffy doesn’t saunter down, like Ace eventually will. He barrels down, he jumps, he freefalls and loves every second because it’s all new and isn’t that amazing???

The Going Merry is magic, because of course it is. Every god deserves a chariot, and there’s none that ever was or shall be as faithful as the Going Merry. It is made strong, to live and last, and she learns to love, because who can’t learn to love, bathed in joy as she always is?

And her captain, her hero, her god and her hero, he loves her back, and together they go forth. Luffy finds the lost, the lonely, the broken, the outcasts, the deserving, and he gathers them up. He brings them together and creates something new, and even the gods look down in breathless awe because there hasn’t been anything new since they ascended.

He gathers a family and he claims them, though he doesn’t know it. He binds them to him by deed and word and love, and his tithes are always paid in blood.

Because, see, the thing about Luffy is, he accepts you for what you are and loves so fully, that you can never be anything less than the truest, best version of you. He makes you strive to be better, not because you ask what would Luffy do but because you ask what would Luffy want me to do? And the answer to that is always, exactly as you please, but you push past it to achieve your dreams because you can’t possibly do less.

And when one day he says, I’m homesick, or if one day he says, they’re calling, or if maybe it’s more like, let’s go to heaven!, well, his crew nods and smiles and swears to follow him anywhere.

Of course you will, he says, and never doubts, and faith and fealty are stronger than logic, so the Going Merry takes flight and everyone holds their breath, even the gods.

And they hit the horizon, and then they hit heaven, and then they keep going.

Dancer - Sergei Polunin

Les réponses à Obscure Echange commencent à tomber ! Il faut que je m'active un peu...

Il y a deux ans, j'étais obsédée par le clip de la chanson Take Me to Church de Hozier, dansé par Sergei Polunin, sans creuser beaucoup plus loin...
Et puis je suis tombée sur cet article passionnant dans The Economist 1843 (en même temps, la fan de Cohen que je suis est incappable de résister à un article intitulé "Dance me to the End of Love" XD) sur sa relation avec la danseuse du Bolshoi Natalia Osipova, mais aussi sur sa carrière tumultueuse, son rapport au ballet et la souffrance que ce dernier a engendré... Je trouve également fascinant l'aperçu qui s'ouvre sur la collaboration de deux artistes tous deux extrèmement talentueux mais aussi très différents... Et ça touche évidemment ma fibre romantique que dès qu'il l'a rencontré, Polunin a décidé de ne plus dancer qu'avec Osipiva...

Et puis j'ai découvert qu'un documentaire intitulé Dancer sur sa carrière était sorti... et aussi qu'il joue dans la nouvelle adaptation du Crime de l'Orient Express (avec Daisy Riley d'ailleurs !) Le film me tente un peu plus maintenant.

Everything that was true last week about the Senate’s Repeal-and-Replace effort is still true this week. But now we have more (and more alarming) information:

The Senate has no intention of making the bill public, and has put measures in place to ensure it hits the floor for a vote before any public testimony, hearings, or awareness of it can be rallied.

Republican Senators are CLAIMING NOT TO KNOW THIS BILL EXISTS. This is tantamount to calling the constituents they’re in office to represent stupid.

Coverage about the bill is below the radar in all major news outlets.

Breaking with precedent, the Senate has banned filming of hallway interviews with Senators. They now require previously granted permission from a Senator AND the Rules Committee of Senate. This makes Senators less visible and less accountable.

ACTION ITEMS remain the same:

1) CALL EVERY SINGLE DAY. Here’s the Capitol switchboard #:  (202) 224-3121. Find numbers for your reps’ state offices here.  If you have Dem Senators you know will vote against it, encourage them to withhold consent or filibuster unless the bill is made public. (Great guide on this from INDIVISIBLE.)

2) ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO CALL. Indivisible has created a tool that makes it easy as heck to reach out to Facebook friends who are in key (swing vote) states. If you’re not on Facebook, tap that email list. No time to be shy–you’ve got friends out there who just need a little nudge/encouragement/empowerment. 

3) WRITE a Letter to the Editor. Pen a message and send it to your local
paper. Media isn’t doing its job covering this incredibly important issue, leaving room for
citizens to step in.

4) SHOW UP. Be a body on the ground at your Senator’s district offices (find those offices here and find others to team up with here). Be
loud. Be quiet but present. Be whatever you are, but be in that space,
demanding accountability. Congress works for us.

5) Take to social media and demand the Senate #ShowUsTheBill … but don’t JUST take to social media; that won’t get ‘er done.

A.C. Strip has long understood the significance of the diary his older brother kept as they fled the Holocaust with their parents. He turned it into a self-published book that he gave to his brother as a 90th birthday gift.

But Strip never considered the diary to be an important historical document. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is making him rethink that.

Strip’s brother’s journal is one of more than 200 diaries written by Holocaust victims and survivors the museum hopes to digitize and make available to the public with the help of its first crowd-funding campaign. The museum is seeking $250,000 for the project and will begin soliciting donations through Kickstarter on Monday, the birthday of the most famous Holocaust diarist, Anne Frank.

Read More: Here

Donate here: http://ift.tt/2sS05tl

If their goal is reached, their entire diary collection will be catalogued, translated, and published online for EVERYONE. They hope to stem holocaust denial by the power of so many readily-available firsthand accounts.

Please signal boost even if you can’t spare $5 to donate!
