You look good enough to eat, princess.
Dreams do come true!
TODAY MY HEART IS BEAMING!
The day is here at last. Marriage equality for all! Now my dads can get married anywhere they want to and that’s the greatest sentence I’ve ever written!
Here’s a quote from my dad, the bravest, truest human being I’ve ever known.
“Today is a big day for LGBT people in America. Having the right to legally marry and to have that marriage recognized in all 50 states is huge and landmark. I have been fortunate that I have experienced very little discrimination in my life and my children and family have been loving and supportive. I am fortunate to have a normal life with a long term partner. The 5-4 ruling today make us all equal as it should be. Love is love.”
I was at work when I found out this magnificent news. I immediately called my dad, but he didn’t answer. Then I ran over to the office of one of my favorite co-workers who is a proud gay man. I found him ugly crying at a TV and I ran up and hugged him and started crying too. We jumped up and down with excitement right as my dad called me back and we shared our excitement over the phone. He lives in Las Vegas and I’m in Chicago so a virtual hug was the best we could do. There was magic in the air. 🙂
Remember where you were today, because this moment will go down in history.
What an amazing time to be alive.
“It is so ordered.”
Well well well. I bet you thought I forgot about this little weekly whatever and you were right! Well mostly.
I’ve been jotting down WTF’s in my phone for like a year and a half and have just been too busy (lazy) to write a post. So now I have plenty to choose from and a lot of time to make up for, so here we go. Back from the dead, it’s WTF?! Wednesdays! (woo!)
Phrase: “Straight From The Horse’s Mouth”
WTF does that even mean: From a reliable source, on the best authority.
Where Did That Come From: “In horse racing circles, tips on which horse is a likely winner circulate amongst punters (betters?). The most trusted authorities are considered to be those in closest touch with the recent form of the horse, that is, stable lads, trainers etc. The notional ‘from the horse’s mouth’ is supposed to indicate one step better than even the inner circle, that is, the horse itself. A 20th century phrase.”
My Take: Okay, I don’t know what they were smoking in 1913, but like, horses can’t talk tho.
I hear this phrase every Now And Then (love that movie). Sometimes it even comes out of my own mouth (not true) even though I am not a horse (true). Usually I say this to try and convince whoever I’m talking to that whatever I’m saying is in fact true, which isn’t hard because I’m always right. *shakes head no* You say this so that you sound like you know what you’re talking about. So you sound like you’ve got all the hot gossip because you “keep in touch with people” and “have so many friends” even though you get all of your information from Facebook because for the most part, you hate everyone. Isn’t social media fun!?
ME: “OH MY GAWD, did you hear Kaitlin got engaged?”
NOT ME: “No way, really? But I thought he cheated on her.”
ME: “Yeah, but she said they worked it out. I heard it straight from the horse’s mouth.”
NOT ME: Oh, cool.
So profound. So basic.
That’s really all there is to it. If you’re gonna talk about people behind their backs make sure you’ve got your facts straight before you drop a “straight from the horse’s mouth.” Don’t embarrass me.
Okay, cool. See you next time!
And I found the origin info here, so it must be true. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/336400.html
For me, the measurement of an awesome song is one that I can listen to 50 times in one day and still want to hear it again. Something I don’t just listen to, but that I feel. Good music should make you feel something and Disclosure gives me all the feels.
This year it started with “You and Me” ft. Eliza Doolittle (Flume Remix) and then next was “Latch” by ft. Sam Smith and my year is ending with this gem, “Help Me Lose My Mind” ft. London Grammar. Granted, some of these songs came out in 2013, but they didn’t find there way to me until this year.
I heard this song for the first time while driving around with my friend Emily. She rocks and so does the music she plays.
Enjoy X Repeat
“Shia Labeouf” is a song by Rob Cantor. It tells the true story of an actual cannibal.
Be warned. Hard to only watch once.
