"Not but what I expect she’d rise to the occasion," Miles added hastily. He was not afraid of Carsington, exactly. Yet he had to admit the glare was a trifle daunting. In any event, it wasn’t good for the man to be come overwrought. Daphne had said so. "My sister is a plucky creature, of course—continuing her work in spite of the discouragement, and so forth."
"You’ve got it backwards," Carsington said. "It wasn’t her rising to the occasion. It’s the occasion rising to her. Egypt and this business with you and the papyrus have finally given her the chance to show what she truly is. She’s—she’s a goddess. But human. A real goddess, not make-believe. She’s beautiful and brave and wise. And fascinating. And dangerous. As goddesses are, as you know, in all the best stories.”
"I’ll be hanged," Miles said. "You really are in love with her.”
The black eyes regarded him steadily. Then they regarded the cabin ceiling. Then the window. Then they came back to him.
"Do you know," Carsington said mildly, "I’ve been wondering what it was."

I’ve spent the last day or so intermittently wailing on Twitter to tumblr users brsis and titsplosions over Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible, which I have not read to digital shreds like I have the rest of Chase’s books, and so I wasn’t braced for the impact the second time around

I’m having an emotion (much like Big Sweet Muscley Lummox Rupert Carsington, though at least I can recognize what my emotion is and that emotion is VERKLEMPT)

[GROSS SOBBING] I love Loretta Chase

THE FUMES IN RAIN: a mix for a dreary city, lit up in neon. the taste of smoke. how the gray outside colors her face. and the savage beasts in each corner, making you look away first.

little DA:I ladies sketches, mostly for my own reference, trying to get a feel for their faces/costume design (partially so I can draw ‘em, partially because I kinda like to keep counterbalance design ideas in mind for my player character)

I’ve had a strong appreciation for a lot of the DA:I design for a while now, and nothing makes you appreciate a design like breaking it down and studying it a little!

Buffalo, America’s Best Designed City

Check out the trailer for the 10 minute documentary to be debuted an Larkinville on Tuesday, October 1st - Buffalo, America’s Best Designed City. Filled with beautiful high definition shots of the city from Director John Paget; the man also responsible for creating the appealing 2010 promotional piece “Buffalo: This Place Matters.”

Paget says of Buffalo, “America’s greatest architects came and built their best works here. In return, Buffalo offered them the best canvas: oceanic waterfront vistas, elegant radial streets established by Joseph Ellicott, and the necklace of parks and parkways designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted… [who called] Buffalo, ‘the best planned city in America, if not the world.’”

deusvolt replied to your post:adulthood

did you buy meat tho

not yet /flops

I can’t buy a chicken because I still have chicken stock to use up and I can’t buy ground beef because there isn’t a good sale on the big pack (like those sales where you buy the $20 package of ground beef and they give you a whole bunch of free shit, like pasta and tomato sauce, etc. etc.) and I can’t buy pork because I haven’t found a bone-in cut at the supermarket and I can’t buy beef-beef because it’s too expensive

I should just go to a meat market. 

Of course, he’s totally down to pray. DTP.

"Okay, it’s the 18th, I just got paid, I guess I’ll just pay one or two bills… aw, fuck it, I may as well just pay them all. It’s not even 3/4 of the way through the month and I’ve got all my bills paid! How cool is that. I am a golden god." 

and

"Oh, uh. I’m not — I’m not in school. I graduated. Take whatever age you’re imagining me at and add like two years to that."

An eighth grade student from Weaverville Elementary School got a detention slip for sharing his school prepared lunch Tuesday.
Kyle Bradford, 13, shared his chicken burrito with a friend who didn’t like the cheese sandwich he was given by the cafeteria.
Bradford didn’t see any problem with sharing his food.
"It seemed like he couldn’t get a normal lunch so I just wanted to give mine to him because I wasn’t really that hungry and it was just going to go in the garbage if I didn’t eat it," said Bradford.
But the Trinity Alps Unified School District has regulations that prohibit students from sharing their meals.
The policies set by the district say that students can have allergies that another student may not be aware of.
Tom Barnett, the Superintendent of the Trinity Alps Unified School District says that hygiene issues also come into play when banning students from sharing meals.
"We have a policy that prohibits students from exchanging meals. Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of safety and liability we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals," said Barnett.
Bradford’s mother Sandy Bradford thinks that her son did the right thing by sharing his lunch. She also believes that it isn’t up to the school to discipline her son for good manners.
“By all means the school can teach them math and the arithmetic and physical education, but when it comes to morals and manners and compassion, I believe it needs to start at home with the parent,” Sandy said.
Bradford says that he would definitely share his lunch again if a friend wanted a portion of his meal.

Kids can’t share now? Or trade lunches? What the actual fuck is happening?

I think this article is talking around what the actual issue is.The student who was “given a cheese sandwich” and “couldn’t get a normal lunch?”That’s how schools handle students whose families can’t pay their lunch bills. They’re required to give the kid something, so they get a slice of processed cheese between two pieces of white bread. Cheese sandwich.All those stories about the kids who went through the lines and then had their trays taken away and dumped in the trash in front of them because their account was $5 in the red when they got to the end of the line?Those kids were given cheese sandwiches.This isn’t about allergies. I guarantee you that kids at those tables are swapping food all the time. It’s part of the school cafeteria experience.If the second kid was allergic to the burrito, we’d be reading a different story.It’s because this kid undermined the system that is supposed to punish students for their parents’ “negligence” (poverty).

They’re not even trying with excuses anymore. “Allergies.”

Fucking cheese sandwiches. When I was in high school we’d get these “grilled cheeses” that came in sealed plastic pouches, and they were somehow greasy, and frequently black. Black with what? To this day, I have no idea. 
So one of my classmates (Maggie? I think her name was Maggie) rallied the cafeteria, and everyone who got a school lunch — and some people who didn’t got one specifically for that day — piled their grilled cheeses onto a tray and presented it to the head lunch lady to say, “yo, this is unacceptable food, we will not stand for this shit.” It was a mammoth pile. I have never seen that much grossness in my life. She got detention, but we never had to eat the grilled cheeses again.
