I realized my header looked like garbage on desktop, so I exchanged it for one that's at least ENTERTAINING garbage: the glorious 80s cover art for The Two Towers
(no joke I unironically love this cover art because it's the only one that speaks the truth: it's a romance novel about Legolas and Gimli)
Fiona had a hard time at Dog School. 😞 I brought some cubed cheese for her, but she barely cared about it in class, and luckily the instructors had some other treat options for the dogs to try if they didn’t go for what we brought. She loves cheese when we’re at home but I guess Dog School was just too stressful.
I think I’ll take her on some more chill outings (to the hardware store, for instance) to practice what we worked on in a setting that’s just a little more stressful than home.
I really struggle to understand the kind of mindset it takes for a Lord of the Rings fan to “despise” the movies (actual word choice from r/tolkienfans, of course)
First of all, congratulations on your giant brain, us mere mortals are in awe of your magnificent cerebral crevices
Second of all, of course you don’t HAVE to like anything? But dude, they’re pushing twenty years old at this point, why the fuck has your hatred not subsided into indifference
One of the wildest things I remember learning in college (over the process of writing a paper) was that Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her husband DISAGREED about women’s suffrage. She was a famous suffragist in a mostly happy and functional marriage with someone who didn’t believe her right to vote important enough to fight for. (They met as abolition activists, so that was their common ground, but still... wild)
Compare Gentleman Jack, where there’s some appropriate angst but very little viewer suffering and the leading ladies get happily married at the end of like 8 episodes
Versus Downton Abbey, where the viewer has to watch Thomas get teased with happiness that gets jerked away from him every single time, for six straight YEARS
