Warm Afternoon

learninghowtotellyou:

And then there is that afternoon when the air is newly hot and heavy. And construction is suddenly everywhere loudly banging and sawing and grumbling somewhere on the street. And we are sad and exhausted, each in her own way.

This is when we lean against each other. You move the book off my lap…

Going back to work after vacation: a dramatic interpetation

I was tortured for months. Every week was worse then the one before. But I learned to cope, to ignore it. Then there was a break. I was able to heal up. But just as I was finishing the healing process, someone shot me in the arm.
All in all the gunshot is less painful but I can’t turn off the feeling of it the way I could ignore the torture.

GO CHOP SOME LUMBER

"what r u doing out of the garage go fix my car"

"Don’t you have something to fix somewhere."

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating.

So I recently noticed something about Tony Stark…

This man

image

never

image

lets anyone

image

drive him.

image

He literally

image

is always

image

the one in the drivers seat.

image

He has a chauffeur 

image

that he drives. 

And then I realized…

image

There’s probably

image

good reason

image

for that. 

That went from shocking to funny to depressing in the span of 5 seconds
