how did erik start coaching christine. like was she just singing in the bath one day and she heard a distant echo saying “you’re sharp”
"also I’m an angel, so spying on you in the bath is so not even an issue. don’t make this weird, Christine."
#don’t make this weird Christine #a summary of the phantom of the opera in five words #”yes I live in the basement; don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes I wear a mask don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes I have a full-scale model of you in a bridal gown; don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes I killed a dude; don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes there’s a Persian police officer asking suspicious questions; don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes I do identify with a character who seduces ingenues in a mask; don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes I’ve now kidnapped you twice; don’t make this weird Christine” #”yes I’ve captured your fiancee and the Persian police officer and am threatening to blow up the opera house if you don’t agree to marry me #DON’T MAKE THIS WEIRD CHRISTINE” (tags via notbecauseofvictories)
…maybe this is why I fricken HATE Phantom of the Opera and don’t get why every one thinks it’s so great. (I’ll go with you if you want, ramblingandpie, honest, but left to my own devices…)
from unforth: “when I was like 12 I went to sleep away camp in North Carolina, and all the other kids were like, “how can you be from NYC you don’t have an accent?” By the end, though, one girl I particularly got along with was like, “we were all wrong, you do have have an accent - you talk sooooooo fast.”)”
Unforth, meet obsessionisaperfume, the only Southerner I’ve ever met who speaks in hypertext. No lie. She can and has kept up with a room full of born-and-bred New Yorkers on a caffeine high.
Sometimes, the ADD is a blessing…
unforth said: *waves* Hello, obsessionisaperfume, we also look like we have a lot of common interests *coughcoughDestielcoughcough*. It’s a pleasure to meet ya! :)
*waves back* Glad to meet another Destiel shipper!
Always excellent to meet another awesome geeky sort. :) Destiel shipping is just an extra bonus! :)
Is Paul Ryan Asshole of the Day (again)?
Is Paul Ryan asshole of the day for saying that kids who get free lunches at school don’t have anyone at home who loves them?
Ryan insisted that liberals were only offering people “a full stomach and an empty soul.”
He then told a story of a “young boy from a very poor family” who received free lunches at school “from a government program.”
“He didn’t want a free lunch,” Ryan insisted. “He wanted his own lunch, one in a brown paper bag, just like the other kids.”
“He wanted one, he said, because he knew a kid with a brown paper bag had someone who cared for him. This is what the left does not understand.”
Paul Ryan says liberals only offer a “full stomach and empty soul”, whereas he wants to give the poor an empty stomach and a full soul that goes to Heaven when they starve to death.
The GOP has no ideas to solve poverty. They only have ideas that involve more starving, sickness and humiliation:
- Rep. Jack Kingston, like Newt Gingrich before him, wants poor kids to have to do work at school before they can eat with the other kids
- Gov. Nathan Deal wants poor people to be refused medical care at the ER, which would overturn a law signed by St. Ronald of Reagan as well as the “healthcare plan” Mitt Romney said was good enough in 2012
- Rep. Louie Gohmert wants to tax the poor, even if their only income is food stamps and welfare
- Sen. Rand Paul wants to penalize poor women for having children
And this is just in 2014.
Keep in mind that solutions to feed the poor and help them pay their own way like the American Jobs Act, raising the minimum wage, or infrastructure spending are all unable to even come to a vote in the House.

And can we spend a moment and think about his implication that children whose families are poor don’t love them?? Makes me want to deck him in the face. What an ass.
