So, a lot of my old followers know this story— but a couple years back my PC suffered a hard-drive failure. I lost almost everything on it. I had managed to back up a few docs here and there (and I thankfully I had begun moving things over to Evernote), but I lost 99% of my computer files.

And that included a lot of my writing. It was a very sad and traumatizing experience to lose SO MANY stories I had written over the years. So, please don’t let that happen to you!

If you were waiting for a sign to back up your writing, and everything you care about, THEN THIS IS THAT SIGN.

  • Save it on a USB Flash drive
  • Upload it to the Cloud
  • Save it on Evernote
  • Email it to yourself
  • Whatever you need to do— do it!

This message was brought to you by: a very sad-looking document and a dorky boi named M. Kirin. For more writerly content, follow: maxkirin.tumblr.com~ And remember, only you can save those documents from a hard-drive failure!

Check out the awesomely long tails on these roosters! These regal specimens are Onagadori or “Long-tailed” chickens. They’re a breed of chicken from the Kōchi Prefecture of Japan who evolved from common domestic chickens who mated with Green Junglefowl. Also known as the ‘most honorable fowl’ in Japan, they’ve been carefully bred over the centuries to achieve their spectacular tails, which grow to lengths of 12 to 27 feet. It takes these chickens at least three years to molt. Onagadori breeders take tremendous pride in their chickens and provide special hutches with perches well above the ground, which helps keep their tails clean and in good condition.

If Rapunzel had been a chicken, she probably would’ve looked a lot like one of these awesome birds. These extraordinarily fancy fowl have Special Natural Monument status in Japan, which means they’re considered to be living monuments of Japanese culture and, as a protected breed, it’s illegal to take their eggs out of the country.

I love these chickens.

WANT. BIG TIME.

WARNING FOR THOSE WITH OR RECOVERING FROM EATING DISORDERS, ESPECIALLY ONES WITH OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE HABITS, WHO ARE THINKING OF DOWNLOADING THE IOS 8 UPDATE. PLEASE REBLOG.

frilton:

The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.

The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”, which contains sections for calories consumed and calories burned. 

While this may be useful for those looking to monitor their fitness, it could be triggering and harmful to those suffering with or in recovery from eating disorders, especially in sufferers with obsessive compulsive tendencies they find it very hard to abstain from, such as calorie counting, body measuring and weighing.

Whilst of course the app cannot force you to use it, it cannot be deleted, so will be present within your apps and can be a source of feelings of temptation to record numbers and of guilt and judgement for not using the app.

If you personally feel you could not emotionally handle the presence of this app,  and it would be detrimental to your recovery, please do not download IOS8. I do not know if a new IOS can be avoided permanently (if anyone has any information on this please do add it to the post), but if it cannot then please use the time you have to prepare yourself for the app, and to reinforce reminders that you do not have to calorie count, you do not have to weigh yourself, you do not owe proof of exercise to anyone, person or app.

Why, why, why?

Don’t ask me a question now if you don’t want me to answer now.

NO, don’t give me a “head’s up”. You don’t know what that means.

If you give me the thing. I’m going to drop everything and do the thing.

You’re my boss. Whatever you hand me is my priority. I don’t care if you say it’s not a priority. That’s not how it works. If it’s not a priority keep it on your desk.

Ugh. How’s that for a personality glitch?

From A Series of Unfortunate Events DVD commentary track.

if you haven’t watched this film with the commentary then you are missing out, it’s hilarious. “Lemony Snicket” was completely unhappy with the film and wanted no real part of it and so in the commentary he just fucks about. Seriously, at one point he gets out an accordion and drowns out the director with his playing

"nearly all of my life"

Lemony Snicket sass is what I aspire to in life.

"Lemony Snicket" (Dan Handler) was asked if he liked the movie.
He said “I love the movie as much as someone who wrote 8 drafts of a movie before being fired from his own creation could possibly be.”
The man’s life is sarcasm and it’s beautiful.
