My Grandmother was a prankster who loved April Fools Day. I remember one year she told us there was a snake in the toilet. My brother and I ran into that bathroom so fast, only to hear my Gramma ca…
Some Nigel Thornberry gifs I’ve collected over a while.
Every so often one of these comes across my dash and I just start laughing hysterically because this meme is simultaneously one of the most pointless yet entertaining things ever.
oh my god
Queen concert poster and ads from 1971. Lower on the bill than “the London debut of Flying Fortress,” but higher than Barracuda, and…wait, what? Genesis!
Oh yeah, and the ad featuring, in huge letters, “ROGER TAYLOR” as “The Legendary Drummer from Cornwall,” with his band’s name in much smaller lettering below — this August 9 show was booked, no kidding, by Roger’s mum. More here.
Tips and homespun for the apocalypse that sooner or later will end up coming. So, keep well this post.
The tutorial for people who ain’t gonna die.
I’m reblogging this for future reference for when there is no more future.
- who wakes the other one up with kisses
Both. Usually Hermann, because typically he needs to be up first. Vanessa sure does enjoy turning the tables, though!
- who cooks for who
Mostly Vanessa cooks for Hermann. Because he sucks at cooking. XD
- who is the morning person/night person
Both are morning people.
- who is the romantic one
They’re about even in romantic-ness. Both of them are pretty pragmatic folks who tend not to go for the cheesy romantic stuff. Except, both of them actually secretly kinda really love the cheesy romantic stuff. So they end up both shuffling sideways half-embarrassed up to the romantic thing. They mostly do little gestures, like getting each other flowers or chocolates, or setting up a candlelit dinner at home. But they always pretend like they really aren’t going to, even though deep down they both know they totally are.
- who is the top when it comes to sex
Hehe. They switch off! Vanessa tends to be the more adventurous, though, if only because Hermann is so very shy about articulating his desires. (He gets better about this over the years, but he’s still fundamentally an awkward turtle, so.)
- who would lead in ballroom dancing
Hermann. Ever the traditionalist, him.
- who is the more cuddly one
Hermann. Hermann is all about the snuggles. Vanessa is, too. But less so compared to her husband. In private, Hermann is a limpet.
- who is the one to most likely pick the movie they watch
They switch off, or decide together. Their tastes are pretty similar, so this works out fine.
- who is the one who would pay for dates
At first, Hermann always insisted. Eventually, Vanessa convinced him to let her pay for every other date. (They began dating while he was in grad school, and thus when he did not have much disposable income. As sweet as Vanessa found the traditional thing, she kinda worried about his finances.)
As a married couple, he always treats her. (I mean, their finances are combined so it’s a bit different situation. It’s the thought that counts with this one.)
- who is the one who would initiate a quickie when working
It would have to be Vanessa - Hermann is waaaaaaaay too uptight about workplace regulations and professionalism and such. And too shy to interrupt her work. And even so, Vanessa is also pretty disinclined to interrupt either of their work for sex, so it would be an extraordinary circumstance for this.
(It totes happened at least once, though. >:D)
