So Thanksgiving weekend was kind of awesome. I got to spend time with family that I haven’t seen in ages along with my immediate family. I got to go on a bit of a road trip (with said immediate family) and eat at places I’ve never been (some pretty darned awesome places, in fact).
But in the end, I’m glad to be back, and that’s not just because one of my sisters decided that I needed to end the weekend with a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively). I’m an introvert, and while I love spending time with my family, I don’t think I could have gone much longer.
I did have it confirmed this weekend that I’m a morning person, though. That kind of surprises me, to be honest. The only people with whom I interact most mornings are my oldest sister and my mother. My mother’s in her sixties, so it’s no surprise that she’s a “not without my coffee” kind of person, and my oldest sister is always running late, not to mention the fact that she’s a new mother. I just… never really had anyone with whom I could compare temperaments in the morning. I kind of figured that my mother’s “not without my coffee” attitude was because of age, and I just never really thought that, out of a half dozen people, I’d be among the most chipper in the morning. Yet that seems to be the case. The continental breakfast at the motel was full of people that just didn’t seem to be able to function in the morning very well. I, on the other hand, who got five hours of fairly disturbed sleep the second night there, was greeting people with a smile.
Which is especially weird, considering how often I spend moping about in my own world. I guess I did have a lot of reason to smile over the weekend (mentioned above), and I have been making an effort to be more congenial, but it just… surprises me. I don’t know. I never really thought of myself as the kind of person who could be bright and cheery in person for extended periods of time, and yet I was doing just that.

This blog’s been pretty silent for a while (aside from the odd joke). I have 80 drafts on which to comment, however, and a question or two in my inbox. I haven’t really been good about responding to them, and I’m sorry for that.
In addition, I want to start a series on YouTube where I talk about… things. Just in general. I figure that I can post embedded versions of the videos here for your perusal, as I would be discussing things very likely relevant to the interests of those reading this.
Thanks for sticking with me, and I promise I’ll work on making this blog more active.
Or does she need… a 12 ounce Tumblr?
Sorry. I’ll leave (be back after Thanksgiving, though, I hope!)
I’m linking this. It’s happening.
Does it smell like R Kelly sheets?
Did she take your grandpa’s style?
i dont like fluttershy
i think she is too much of a coward sometimes, sure at the beginning its funny and cute to see her be scared of…everything, but recently its just been shameful.
magic duel is the worst (best?) example of this when dashes plan to get fluttershy out of the fish bowl works…but she almost goes back in AFTER the plan works! she is willing to leave ponyville in control of a corrupted trixie and abandon twilight because she is too scared to go into the everfree?! a place she has been to many times in the past for more dangerous missions. her animal friends had to carry her in there.
i dont care if it was suppose to be funny, to me thats just disgraceful
I’m not going to argue with how you feel about Fluttershy. I’ll just say that her behavior in that episode isn’t necessarily as out of character as you make it seem. In the premiere, she entered the Everfree Forest in a group with ponies that she trusted (she probably didn’t trust them all at first, at least not completely, but she trusted some to a very large degree). As near as I can recall, the only other time she entered the Everfree Forest before Magic Duel was to save the CMC. In that case, there was a clear and immediate danger.
As I said, I’m not going to try to convince you that Fluttershy is best pony or anything. I’m merely addressing the fact that this behavior was well within what one can reasonably expect from her character.
She doesn’t cherry pick. I’ve personally commented on confessions with which I know she disagrees and could have easily argued, but didn’t.
She does, however, have a massive backlog and this can be best understood in the fact that there was a confession that she recently posted (it’s currently at the bottom of page 2) about Discord “most likely being turned good.” That episode synopsis was revealed 10 months ago and it premiered a little over 9 months ago, which means that that’s… well, that’s about her backlog right now.
Which is actually proof that PC mod hasn’t managed to get anywhere near the DWM confessions yet. Assuming her inbox doesn’t implode again, I honestly expect DWM confessions either in about 6 months (if she can get ahead of her backlog) or a year (if she can’t, which seems the more likely case).
I really admire tumblr user Pinkiepony and her art
Is it just me, or does it seem that the confession backlog is a little too far back for DWM posts yet? I’m just saying that, if I were the kind of person to be suspicious, I might be suspicious of a confession about an artist that was completely unknown at the time this confession was likely made, especially considering the fact that it specifically calls attention to the fact that she’s on Tumblr.
Y’know. If I were a suspicious person.
First up, I apologise for the length of this photoset, and the NSFW content.
Some (stupid) people’s excuse for Princess Molestia being okay is that she’s flagged as NSFW so kids can’t find it.
Thing is, Google Safe Search isn’t perfect. Youtube…
So I decided to test this a while back and ran a Google Image Search for Princess Celestia.
After about a dozen pages’ worth of scrolling, I came across a single NSFW image of Princess Celestia.
No Princess Molestia, though.
Ladies and gentlemen, when you make a post like this, always keep in mind that Google tailors its image search results to your browsing history (as does Bing and, IIRC, Yahoo). In other words, if R34 is within the area of “most relevant results” (first few pages) for you, it says more about your browsing history and your interests than it does about the fandom itself.
Once again, if you click back to the original posts, you’re going to get NSFW images. You have been warned.
Okay, I guess maybe they’re trying to say that drinking Dos Equis will make you seem more charming or sophisticated or something like that, but my very first thought on seeing this was that they were saying to get girls drunk to sleep with them.
You would think that someone would have pointed out that issue before this tweet was posted, let alone promoted.
Now, I’m not trying to say, “HOW DARE THEY!” As I said before, the intent seems to be about the beer improving the appearance of the individual drinking it, not about getting the other person drunk. I’m not entirely sure what I’m saying, except that I’m surprised that there hasn’t been a massive amount of internet backlash from this (yet).
