i remember at the height of my job interview period i would look up job interview tips anywhere i could find them. sometimes in a weird, delusional state i would convince myself it was possible to mind trick people, you know? like get inside their heads. body mirroring, using their names a lot, stuff like that. there was this one time i was getting dressed to go out and i was trying to find a clean undershirt. i found one, but then i found another undershirt that was, uh, pretty much as clean. i had worn it for like four hours while i was out the day before. it wasn’t dirty, it was just, worn i guess. anyways i was looking at these two undershirts and i thought, “i’ll wear this one that i wore yesterday because what if that thing about human pheromones is true and they’re on this shirt and i wear it and then the person interviewing me like, picks up on it and falls in love with me on a really deep subconscious level? that’s a thing, i’ve definitely read a thing about that.” so i wore the shirt. see how crazy extended job searches make you? like that sounded like a good idea to me. “job interview? sure, i’ll just wear this dirty fucking shirt and trick their ancient lizard brain into thinking they want to mate with me. then we’ll talk vacation days. if this doesn’t work i’ll present the collection of shiny stones i keep in my backpack.”

Happy Ally Appreciation Week!
I had no idea that such a thing existed until I saw this on campus this morning on my way to class - a big flag made of little flags on the South Oval, next to where a couple of fraternities were putting on an event with live music and free food. I found the LGBTQ programming table, where they had dozens more of these flags, in all colors - anyone who wanted to could take one and plant it, and write an encouraging message on it if they wanted to.
I planted a blue one, and read some of the messages. Many of them were just names - “for my best friend Jake,” “for my sister,” “for my aunt” - while others were long letters, either to individuals or to the LGBTQ community at large, praising our bravery, our strength, our beauty, our value. It wasn’t so much about praising an ally, though many of the flags planted, many of the names, belonged to supporters - it was about giving allies and people in the LGBTQ community the opportunity to show their support in this beautiful, visible way. It was just about people appreciating each other, whether they were queer or not, and I liked that.
I didn’t have time to read many of them, but you could see them from all the way down the other end of the South Oval, and hear the plastic clattering in the wind. Even from a distance, the flag looked liked it was moving.
This made me so, so happy today. :D

On The Hobbit page of the LEGO site, you can play a game that allows you to “arrange” music for the Dwarves. I lost it at Thorin rocking out his harp solo.
I need to reblog this a second time because I’m listening to Kanye West’s “Send It Up” and they’re dancing to it perfectly and I’m laughing so hard I can’t breathe
