“She said ‘I love you and I want to spend my life with you.’ Then ten days later, we sat in a diner, and she said ‘I don’t want to be with you anymore.”
“What was your happiest moment with her?”
“The happiest times were just little moments of exuberance. Like when she jumped on my back because something swam up against her in the ocean. Or when we danced in the kitchen when the pizza arrived”
It’s Global Tiger Day today so here’s an old favourite from a few years back…
Mother and Cub in perfect harmony…
Some fuzzies for your afternoon dash that may or may not be related to my tiger obsession….
A lot of people requested Iroh. I didn’t realize until later that some of them may have been talking about Uncle Iroh instead of this dashing general, but whatever. They got AN Iroh.
This was, I think, the first drawing I completed, and I’m happy that he doesn’t just look like Mako, as he did every other time I tried to draw him.
i wanted to draw the old gaang but i didn’t know which outfits from which books to draw them in then i was like oh hang on
Stellar fan art based on Joaquim Dos Santos’ “Old Friends” poster.

HAHAHA! Hardest working fans in the business.
Stop me. I love Avatar/LoK too much.

Well this is real fancy.
The Old Library at Ireland’s Trinity College houses the institution’s greatest treasure: the Book of Kells, a circa-A.D. 800 illuminated manuscript.

A new poll found that most Americans have a higher opinion of Darth Vader than of any potential 2016 candidate. In fact, things are looking so good for Vader that he’s decided to run for president. He’s even released a few campaign slogans.
I’m going to get really, really rich. Like, multimillionaire rich. I don’t know how yet. That part I’ll figure out someday, but once I get there I know exactly what I’m going to do!
I’m going to get an RV and turn it into a bookmobile and take someone who can drive it to be my assistant librarian (preferably the SO but if he can’t drive it I guess we’ll have to get somebody else to).
And I’ll stock it with lots and lots of books - classics in fiction and non, the recent bestsellers, lots of Harry Potter, cookbooks, educational materials, Calvin & Hobbes collections, YA novels, steamy romances, paperback mysteries, obscure books from my English classes, the TIME top 100 of the century, and more as I can think of it.
I’ll drive across the U.S. (and Canada?) giving out books in exchange for anything - a hug, a meal, a penny, anything! - and collect books with a nifty hatch built into the RV as a bookdrop.
I’ll recommend my favorites, discover new reads, and donate the excess to rural libraries and schools along the way.
And at night we can camp out and have cool stories to tell with the locals, or we’ll snuggle in under the stars.
It’s going to be so much fun. I can’t wait.
I’m half kidding about this plan, and half serious, by the way.

Have you ever noticed how beautiful can be the Coffee? I was wondering about the basic rules of Nature. Our common sight of the World. I’ve created something that is different than what you’ve seen so far. This is my Coffee Universe.

“People waste way too much energy taking things personally. That Facebook post is probably not about you. It was probably an accident that you weren’t tagged in that picture. And the person you’re dating is probably acting sad because that’s how they respond to setbacks at work, not because of anything you did.”
