what does the bumpersticker say?

"I’d rather be writing fanfic". It’s right next to one that says "Never moon a werewolf". (I also have a Dumbledore’s Army sticker. I wear my geekiness loud and proud.)

Pica’s bumper stickers are a thing of beauty! Actually her purple truck is important.

Hey, have you put the sloth one on yet?? I mean no rush but…

Yup.

AWESOME.

LOOKING FOR PERFORMERS AT GEEKGIRLCON ’14

geekgirlcon:

GeekGirlCon will take place on the weekend of October 10 and 11, 2014 at the the Conference Center at the WSCC in downtown Seattle. Our special night time events, such as our annual GeekGirlCONcert on Saturday, and our Closing Celebration on Sunday, always bring the best of music and comedy to you. In recent years, these stellar lineups of geeky entertainment have normally sold out and been one of the most popular attractions of the con. Past GeekGirlCon  performers have included Marian Call,The DoubleclicksMolly Lewis, and Unwoman.

This year we want YOU to be a part of it! GeekGirlCon is looking for musicians, stand-up comedians, performers, improvisation actors, slam poets, and entertainers of all kinds to take part in our GeekGirlCONcert, our closing celebration Sunday night, and potentially other events throughout the con.

We are looking to diversify our performances and musical genres from previous years, so don’t be afraid to apply, even if it is not something we have seen or heard at GeekGirlCon before. We’re especially looking for talent that reflects and appreciates the mission of our convention – to promote, celebrate, educate, mentor, encourage, and empower the female geek. Not a performer but know someone who is? Please pass along this form to them!

So, it’s stated several times throughout Prisoner of Azkaban that the tunnel leading from the Whomping Willow to the Shrieking Shack has a very low ceiling; so low that two thirteen-year-olds have to be hunched over just to walk through it. Which makes me think…there’s no way that a giant stag was going to be able to get down there. Which makes me conclude that James walked down as a human and waited until he was in the Shrieking Shack to change into the stag. What a BAMF.

I always figured Sirius stayed in the Shack with Remus until he transformed, and then led him out to the forest, where the others were waiting. Stags with huge racks of antlers are not indoor animals at the best of times.

Filed under hp hp headcanons marauders yeah... why would he transform as a stag inside the shack that's less BAMF and more just really inconvenient and unnecessary

MythBusters Stars Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara Are Leaving the Show

All 3 of them at once though?

Geez.

Apparently the show is going back to just having Adam and Jamie host. 

Filed under mythbusters so weird brain is too tired to comprehend this probably the beginning of the end of mythbusters though in truth the show has mostly just been explosions for the last 5 years or so

(Need) Couch - Seattle/Surrounding Area or Portland, OR

Hey all!

So i’ve posted here before and I am back again.

Long story short I am moving around a few places and am in a place at least until the end of the month but after that it’s time to move again, I just came back to Seattle in June for a job which turned out to be a live-in nanny nightmare/scam and am insanely searching for a new job.

However where I am now is limited as it usually is with couch surfing and I am starting early to plan the next step for September, Ideally I am asking for a safe couch for 30-90 days, more toward 60 which I know is asking a lot of people but honestly I am moving almost monthly now and I need to have the time to not worry about moving and worry about solely finding work.

I have an extensive resume and am absolutely certain I will find work it’sjust a matter of time making it happen and getting some money to find roommates and rent a place.

Anyways if anyone has a lead for around the end of the monthish please let me know, I’d really love ya forever if we can get me a place to stay while I work through this, I am a 30 year old MTF trans woman and don’t want to become another statistic on the streets and can’t do shelters as in my previous ad I explained that is a trigger for me due to a past assault.

She’s staying with me and my roommate at the moment, and has been a decent house guest. We just can’t do the extended stay thing.

Signal boosting again. She really needs a place to stay. My roommate and I are both out of town over Labor Day weekend. If you have followers who can offer safe housing in the Seattle area, please reblog.
