At first glance this pretty cottage looks very much like any other nestled in the picturesque Welsh valleys.But this sprawling home comes with its own system of caves, and a lake brimming with trout - all for £450,000. The secluded property has a network of three caverns and natural rock pools along with 10 acres of land and a stable block big enough for 12 horses. The Coed-y-Glyn Uchaf cottage, near Glyn Ceiriog, Wales, also includes a former slate mine and has a separate annex with living area.

I love the earthy colors in this outfit, but I didn’t really have anywhere to wear it so pictures will do.
Also the manager of the local sushi place was so impressed with my shitty japanese that he gave me his number, that made my day lol.

My boss won’t take calls from his clients because he has ‘work to catch up on’, then spends the whole afternoon on his mobile making personal calls.
And I get the bullshit from the clients.
Receptionist life yo.

"Those poor boys"
"She deserves to be punished too."
"I’m not saying I support rape, but-"
"Sorry to say - she deserved it."
"She put herself in harm’s way"
"But if she was fingered, then that’s not rape."
"She ruined their lives."
"Well she didn’t exactly say ‘no’.."
"Yea, but did you see what she was wearing?"
"Boys will be boys!"
"She should know better than to drink at a party…"

HOW COME WHEN HARRY GETS BITTEN BY THE BASILISK IN CHAMBER OF SECRETS THAT DOESNT DESTROY THE HORCRUX IN HIM SOMEONE ANSWER THIS???
Can we get JKR on the phone ?
yes let me just pull out her number real quick hang on yes hello 911 can i speak to jkr pls
i’ve actually thought of this before. WOOPS jkr you fucked up
Because Fawkes intervened before the poison could kill him. Basilisk venom doesn’t destroy horcruxes on contact, it’s just one of the only substances that is powerful enough to be ABLE to destroy them. Remember, to destroy a horcrux you need to destroy it’s container irreparably. If the container is living, then that means it must die for the horcrux to be destroyed. If the venom had killed Harry, it would have also destroyed the horcrux inside him, but anything less than death would leave the horcrux intact. Fawkes’s tears saved Harry’s life, and therefore also kept the horcrux intact.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!
Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.
All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.
Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!
Let me tell to you a thing.
This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.
She was perfect.
But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.
I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.
A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”
They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.
This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”
I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”
Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.
So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.
Your story about Lenore made me teary-eyed as fuck.
I worked in an animal shelter for a year, and people would get so picky about our cats.
Bullshit reasoning included:
- "I had a ginger cat as a kid, so I only want a ginger cat, cause they have the nicest personalities".
- "I thought you said you had kittens! These are full grown cats!!!" - regarding three kittens that weren’t even four months old.
- "Yeah see he seems nice. But I just can’t do the missing leg.” - about an incredibly intelligent black cat who had had a leg amputated and been surrendered to us because his owners were willing to put him down rather than pay for his leg surgery.
- "But if I get an older cat, he won’t like us the way a kitten will."
The most loving cats in there were often the ‘broken’ ones. One little girl was possibly the runt of her littler, had had to have her tail removed when it got stuck in a car engine and was often a little incontinent. She sat on my feet the first day I met her and meowed and purred at me constantly.
Another had an eye problem that left him with one eye cloudy and a little creepy looking. But you will never meet a cat as affectionate.
Give the old, ‘broken’ cats a chance. They’re worth it.

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

People who say bi erasure doesn’t happen need to realize Freddie Mercury is known as the most famous homosexual man when he identified himself as bisexual. If that’s not bi erasure I don’t even know.
Also PoC erasure, most people don’t know he was 100% Indian
Specifically he was Parsi.
