Stuff and Things
Okay, so I had a post about this queued up for Sunday, but it didn’t post for some reason. Blargh.
Anyway, Sunday was my girlfriend's birthday, and I wanted to shout about it on tumblr, because she is the love of my life, and well worth shouting about. <3 So one more wishing of happy birthday to my darling deadlightsgirl!

A clarification that nobody asked for but I’m making anyway

I don’t actually think Juliet was stuffed in a refrigerator. I get the intention. Jack’s fuck-up needed to have angsty consequences, and that means killing off someone, and since the final season was going to refocus on the 815-ers because of the “candidate to be the next Jacob” storyline, that someone was going to be a non 815-er. Miles was never prominently featured or emotionally connected to another lead enough to make his death heart-breaking, and that equation leaves Juliet. I’m not happy about it, but I don’t think it’s glaring. Lost definitely has an unfortunate habit of killing it’s female characters though, moreso than male ones.

I will also never be over Juliet Burke. Her fridge-ing still hurts.

What the actual fuck…

So first you get me emotionally attached, then you give me the saddest motherfucking death I’ve ever come across, after which you hit me with a punch like “tropical brainforest”….

I am so done with this book!!!

(aka best thing I’ve read in years)

Rewatching Season 5, it’s now eerily obvious that Terry O’Quinn is playing a completely different character after they return to the Island. The way he carries himself, the way he speaks… Really fascinating acting stuff. O’Quinn is a freaking star.

Awww Hank Schrader is a guest star in “Some Like It Hoth”!

So embarrassing when you stare into the abyss and the abyss stares back at you so you wave but the abyss was staring at the dude behind you.

All the girls in my school care about is makeup and shopping and all i care about is FOOD and VIDEO GAMES. lol sometimes i think i was born a guy.image

Happy LOST-iversy!

10 years. Holy crap. Currently in the middle of “A Tale of Two Cities”, dreading the upcoming season’s filler plots and poor writing decisions. Maybe Season 3’s gotten better than I remember, but if I wasn’t that happy with it at 16, I doubt I’ll be pleasantly surprised now. At least there’s more Ben, though!

Hahaha TRUTH! #funny #true #weak #funnybuttrue #iphone6 #section8 #welfare #foodstamps

…You do realize that a lot of people on assistance don’t actually pay for their own phones or phone plans, right?Like, I’m not even talking about the Lifeline program, here. I mean they’re on someone else’s family plan, or they were given a gift, or they have a phone issued to them through work (as I did, back when I made slightly less than $11/hr as a foster care caseworker).You don’t know someone’s story just by looking at their possessions.

My family donated an old, used iPhone they no longer needed to me and I’m able to use free wi-fi on it in different locations and suburbs as long as I keep it charged. I don’t have to pay for a subscription or call plan as I can always purchase cheap, pre-paid credit whenever I need to or in case of emergencies. My iPhone has helped me stay in touch with my family members, partner, doctors and be able to get around and tell the weather (which is very important here because of all the extreme heatwaves and flash floods). 
It would also help me call the police or emergency services in case I get raped or have a medical emergency (I’m chronically ill). 
People on welfare could benefit greatly from having iPhones and, in fact, need iPhones as well as the options and features they offer (which aren’t available on normal brick cell phones) much more than your average, able-bodied, well adjusted person who is able to have or keep a job. 
Welfare recipients deserve nice things. Welfare recipients aren’t subhuman. Welfare recipients benefit from having access to 21st century technology and don’t simply purchase iPhones to be frivolous or showy, but rather because of the conveniences and important and beneficial features they have. 
If you think welfare recipients don’t deserve to eat or live because they have an iPhone or a car or any other material thing that makes our lives more tolerable, convenient and liveable then you’re the worse piece of shit and your opinion is as useful as toilet paper. Take your shitty opinion, turn it up sideways and, well… you know the rest. 

I mean, granted, I’m an Android person, but back when I was on assistance I had a smartphone. I used it to remind myself of client appointments. When I couldn’t leech wifi, I tethered it so I could get my case notes submitted to my supervisor.My phone helped me keep my job, AND it helped me apply for something full time. It directly helped me in getting off assistance. IDGAF what people think - poor people deserve smartphones, and poor people use smartphones to enhance their quality of life. Fuck people who think that’s a bad thing.
