I wonder if any Sherlock Fans ever knew of the Adventures of Shirley Holmes.

Probably not, it is Canadian.

GOD I loved this show. Sigh.

let’s be honest, they notice my boobs and grin before they notice the tattoo on the leg.

I believe it!

But why do you have to have that tattoo on DISPLAY at all?? Have you no self-respect?


Self-respect, yes. Dignity, no.

My grandpa (his name is Dick Johnson by the way, and no I’m not kidding) went nutso over my tattoo (didn’t get it til my late 20s). He had this big long tirade that ended with me as Amber with the Tattoo in Prison. I’m still lost on how it got from this to prison, but it did involve a speeding ticket?

Goals for when GISHWHES & other early August mayhem is complete:

  • Get a tumblr theme
  • Somehow use theme to organize art/writing stuff, because my things are thrown everywhere and compulsory need for organization is starting to make my right eye twitch
  • sleep (repeat as needed)

You forgot Orphan Black

This goes right into the “books" and "resources" tags.

I’ve featured quite a few of these books for Fiction Week, and I know that many educators would be interested in a list like this. Thanks for making it.

Anonymous asked: what do you think makes samira so different that literally everybody just finds her so attractive. like im straight but i dont even know what attracts me most about. and plus shes my very first celebrity crush so obviously means something




It could be her attitude and the way she carries herself. It’s like how confidence can make people attractive. It could be how she has a more androgynous look to her. Androgynous people blur the lines between masculine and feminine so it makes people question their sexuality when they find themselves attracted to someone they wouldn’t normally be attracted to. Because there is the blurring between feminine and masculine, she attracts a wider variety of people. She can be very feminine and sexy sometimes, but she can also be very dapper and masculine. 

No but seriously. She can go from gorgeous,


to sexy, 


to handsome,


to adorable 


with just a change of clothes. She is just one of those people that can pull off all of these looks flawlessly. 

And you can’t forget her heart-melting,


make your knees go weak smile. 


in case anyone missed this last night
