you're cute as hell


I’ve got my 3DS friend code memorised; I need to be stopped.

I’m posting it a week late, but this was my friend’s reaction to the How I Met Your Mother finale.

Well would you look at that.

Pokemon for trade

I’m raising a new team, and I’m out of space in my PC boxes, so I need to get rid of some Pokemon that I’ve raised. I am offering:

  • 3V and 4V Extreme Speed Adamant Dratinis
  • Bold 4V Tentacools with Rapid Spin, Haze and Mirror Coat
  • 5V Bold Snorlaxes with Curse
  • 4V Modest Bulbasaurs with Giga Drain
  • 4V Jolly Regenerator Mienfoos
  • Bold Eevees with Wish
  • Jolly Darumakas
  • Bold Sableyes with Recover
  • Bold Regenerator Slowpokes

I’m looking for Pokemon with egg moves or good IVs in return, but since I’m trying to clear my boxes, I’ll take pretty much anything for them.

I also have a non-Kalos born shiny Venomoth that I’m looking to trade for another shiny.

If you’re interested in any Pokemon, send me a message here.

I will get this shirt. It’s a fact. If you open a book of facts, it will be in there.

I guess the writers had one final slap for us after all.

The How I Met Your Mother finale (spoiler warning)

Yesterday was basically How I Met Your Mother Finale Day. I spent most of the day trying to download the episode at a McDonald’s and later a friend’s house with no luck, until I got it from a friend who was driving by.

I’m in the minority that didn’t hate the finale. I thought it was a realistic, emotion-filled send-off to the show. It had me tearing up at something new every few minutes. It didn’t contain happy endings for everyone, but that’s how life goes.

Everything that happened in the episode makes sense if you think about it. Even so, I’d kill for an ending where the mother (her name is Tracy!) is alive, Ted and her live happily ever after and the last three minutes of the finale never happened. She surpassed all expectations that I had of the mother, and I couldn’t believe that they killed her off so that Ted could end up with Robin. I don’t get the people saying that Tracy was the ‘consolation prize’; in my opinion, if anyone was Ted’s consolation prize, it was Robin. I’m sure the TedxRobin shippers are happy. Both of them.

The episode had some hard-hitting moments. The first time I lost it was when Robin tore into Lily at the Halloween party at the end of the first episode. The divorce, Barney’s speech to his daughter, Tracy’s announcement that she was pregnant and Tracy’s death were hard to watch as well. Finally, at the end, the title card confirmed that the show was over for good.

My favourite part of the episode was the part where we finally heard the mother’s name. It was such a small detail, but it mattered. It was like all nine seasons built up to that moment.

I’m gonna miss the show and its characters. I’ll miss having a show to look forward to on Mondays and Tuesdays. It’s like I’m losing a group of friends. I knew the show would have to end sometime; that doesn’t mean I’m happy to see it go.

Friendly reminder that How I Met Your Mother ends in a few hours, on a double episode, so that you get to cry twice as much ✿◕‿◕✿

Sylvanian Families are too cute and I want all of them. Look at that giant rabbit. Just look at it. Apparently, double-bladed Lightsabers are twice as lame as regular ones. That's exactly what you think it is. The boat, a vehicle designed to float on water, really floats on water. Incredible. Hey look, it's Zack and Cody. Nobody's going to buy these. Not even Husky owners are going to buy these. Or these. I think this is supposed to be Tori Vega from Victorious, but it could be Ariana Grande's character for all I know. This is supposed to be Merida from Brave. Yeah, I know.

Problems with Pan:

  • Stupid title
  • It has Blackbeard in it
  • Warner Brothers says that it’ll appeal to fans of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. It probably won’t.
  • Rooney Mara, a 28 year old white woman, is being considered for the role of Tiger Lily, a pre-teen Native American girl
  • Hollywood’s brought out enough prequels and remakes recently to last us for at least the next 100 years
  • The movie probably won’t be very good.
  • Etc.

The upside to Pan:

  • Hugh Jackman
  • ??????????

The Inbetweeners Movie 2 is coming out in August. What a time to be alive.

This is the most amazing thing.

The only thing better than a photo of my dog is three photos of my dog.
