I am a princess…
Freckle Friday | Angry freckled Cecil.
^^ me, right know, concerning both sciencing and adulting in general.
Let’s talk in quotes:
”It’s been a great week. Really amazing. I can’t wait when I get out of here. " said past!Will at the end of her awesome summer in Canada.
"Cod, I hate travelling," says present!Will after an awesome year when she saw like a million cool different places.
Also, I’m going to the Netherlands on Friday. Another conference. Yay! And then to France next Sunday, two days after I come back.
In France? Three months. I’m already sick of all of it.
I guess I’ve just saturated most of my excitable thingies.
But hey, I’ve spent the whole Saturday petting cats and the witches and notwitches in my head finally (almost) stopped screaming. (I would try and hint what I am talking about, but thinking too closely about that still gives me wrong-feelings. It’s the thing with the elf-sized Thorin with a beard. And a couple of other, scarier things.)
So basically, I’ve just got a lot of wrong-feelings (thanks for the awesome phrase go to this great Doctor Who book) and writing them down helps a bit.
Anxious? Is the right word in this context. I guess.
This has been a I’m-anxious-about-travelling-and-paperwork post. Thank you for flying with Emirates. I mean, Děkujeme, že jste využili služeb Českých drah.

Chuck Norris is a real-life, non-superpowered badass … which makes the ad he did for the Czech Republic branch of T-Mobile all the more puzzling.
#4. T-Mobile Czech: Chuck Norris Faints
[In the ad Norris is] about to learn how to cook a fish old country-style. Step 1: Instead of waiting for Big Mouth Billy to gasp his final gasp, or simply beheading, scaling, and gutting the slimy little guy until chewable, this gal chooses to bonk it over the head with a giant mallet. Surprisingly, Ultimate Alpha Male Norris objects to bashing the poor fishie’s barely existent brains in, and yet his cruel mother/co-star/captor insists on carrying out the bludgeoning. So Chuck does what comes naturally: He faints. No joke here — his eyes roll to the back of his head like he’s a sarcastic teenager and he collapses in a heap, no more an ass-kicker than a swooning fairy tale princess encountering a giant fire-breathing serpent.
Seriously though, the Christmas season with Chuck Norris adverts was the best.
(also, as far as I know, we do kill our christmas fish like that. Only probably wrap it in a towel first, because duh, it’s slippery.)
Photoshop has become a fixture of the photography world in the US, but Esther Honig wanted to examine retouching standards overseas.
Esther sent an ordinary head shot to 40 individuals from 25 different countries, asking each of them to “make her beautiful” with Photoshop.
The Phillipines retouch was literally just putting her in a suit jacket and adding a colorful backdrop, that’s hilarious and interesting.
tbh i don’t really know what’s more terrifying: the fact that the doctor killed that thing or the fact that he convinced it to kill itself…

Oh, that reminds me of the hopeless joy of walking through a geekshop counting all the five….no six….no SEVEN official t-shirt designs in ladies cut* and knowing I won’t be spending any money on clothes that day. Sorry Doctor, I don’t care how great you look on it, I need a t-shirt that fits.
*the only exception being Adventure Time, which I need to go back to watching, because hey, they look like they actually care!
I mean, Into the Storm.
But seriously, Thorin starts as a serious busy character underestimating one of his boys (16 years old) and being too demanding to the other (17 years old) one. Then the boys rebel a bit, Thorin shows his power of leadership by showing the people at the school ceremony to safety and then goes with one of the boys to find and save the other one from the greatest calamity of their time while helping some random citizens on the way. The whole thing ends with Thorin being a hero, the boys being alright, everyone realising how important family is and living happily ever after.
I mean how is that not a happy modern day hobbit fanfic? :D
Also, it’s the first time since I’ve seen The Crucible on Saturday when the world is something else than feels. He even laughs at the end!
BLESS MARVEL, they’ve officially released this in HD
I think most everyone on my dash could use happy dancing Groot today <3
