I was going through old photos and I found this FB post I took a screencap of when I lived in Australia. Still makes me laugh, absolute classic.

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?

When I lived in Australia for a year, I had a part-time job in a coffee shop. I made more in one week than my Mom, a special ed teacher in the US did in one month. That really put things in perspective for me.

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.
His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.
Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.
"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."

Reblogging because this sadly hasn’t received a lot of press in the United States and more people need to know what an amazing, world-changing author we lost today.

I love that Fassy Ass is clearly saying, “Oh Jeepers!” 

That is totally not something I would ever expect him to say.

in an unrelated note, anthony mackie visited marvel hq today and apparently screamed “HELLO MARVEL, I AM THE FALCON” when he walked in

Everyone please watch every interview he is in. Each is a delight. New favourite person.

I haven’t seen this episode yet, but I’m laughing even harder than I normally would because I literally did this very thing two hours ago. Love you, Hannibal.

If you can’t find a place on your blog for Patrick Stewart in a bathtub dressed like a lobster, then your blog probably doesn’t deserve such majesty anyway.

I was lucky enough to see him and Ian McKellen in ‘Waiting For Godot’ last week and it was AMAZING and I seriously had a ‘one tear moment of joy’ when they entered on stage. Love these humans.
