They’re like, ‘Sir, there’s something in your bag.’
I said, ‘Yes, I think it’s this box.’
They said, ‘What’s in the box?’
I said, ‘a large gold medal,’ as one does.
So they opened it up and they said, ‘What’s it made out of?’
I said, ‘gold.’
And they’re like, ‘Uhhhh. Who gave this to you?’
‘The King of Sweden.’
‘Why did he give this to you?’
‘Because I helped discover the expansion rate of the universe was accelerating.’

What It’s Like to Carry Your Nobel Prize through Airport Security | Observations, Scientific American Blog Network (via melissaanelli)

Batgrl comment: This leaves out the best line:

"‘Because I helped discover the expansion rate of the universe was accelerating.’
At which point, they were beginning to lose their sense of humor. I explained to them it was a Nobel Prize, and their main question was, ‘Why were you in Fargo?’””

Ed and Lorraine Warrens Occult Museum

Houses over 50 years of haunted objects. The most famous of which is, Annabelle the Raggedy Ann Doll.

I aspire to have (at least) a room of a home I live in that looks like this! Er, not that any of it has to be occult or actually haunted. I’m going for a classic Addams Family On A Budget kinda look.

Those last two sets were kind of emotionally heavy for me, so here’s a lighter one.
Me, Halloween 1986, getting ready in batgrletcetera's dorm room.

Aw! And I had completely forgotten the rubber fish in the window and the fresnel lamp I once had (now there’s a foreshadowing of my whole film class love). Now am totally wishing I had access to my photo albums so I could share some silly ones of me. (I’ll eventually digitize them and share any you want btw. Eventually.)

Omg. I was almost 2.

Well, when I say I’m older than (I think) everyone I follow (with the exception of batgrletcetera), I am not just saying that. :p

[Giggles, makes note to remember to pat Deathcupcake on the head and mention her extreme youth when she next sees her.]

Can I just say I love vintage batman out of context because it's so silly and I almost don't even want to know what's going on because it's just of silly and perfect.

A silly speed painting for the day! I haven’t been on the tumbls lately because I forgot my PW and didn’t care to reset it, but I’m BACK!


(I have no idea what the backstory here is, or even if there is one - I’m just sharing this for the weirdness of Saint Crawfish Is Coming At You - er, as I’ve dubbed it. Or Saint Lobster or Prawn or Whatever.)

The amount of notes concerns me

i’m more concerned about the fact that this orange is still on the loose he could kill again at any time

the newspapers give this notorious killer a nickname
much to the dismay of the lead detective


BLOOD ORANGE OH MY GOD I’M CRYING

This looks like the type of horse that will lure you onto his back and then carry you into a lake.

#fairy tales

So is this horse is planning to drown me? I no longer trust beautiful horses. 

I would go with this horse.

"Eric, don’t drown her. I shouldn’t have to add ‘please’ when its about not drowning my friends, dude."

Hello! I am 100% Real Horse! Not Kelpie, ha ha, nope, REAL HORSE. Don’t believe the Kelpie hype. That’s what THEY want you to believe. I have made a YouTube video about the Kelpie Conspiracy! Get on my back and I’ll take you to the comment section.
