"WAIT YOU’RE JESUS???"

Step 329: If someone is waiting on something they *really* want that is out of their control, don’t constantly ask them if it’s happened yet

adulting:

Is your friend …

• Unemployed and searching for a job?
• Wanting to find the right someone but hasn’t?
• Trying to get pregnant and having a hard time with it?
• Waiting to hear back from that dream grad school program?

When the thing they have desperately been waiting for happens, they will tell you. Peppering them with questions and/or unsolicited advice on how they can better achieve this life goal is probably not what they’re looking for.

Instead, it’s just depressing to have to vocalize, again and again, that no, the thing they want has not yet happened, and then have to sit patiently while the other person tells them to keep their chin up, or that the right one is coming, or whatever.

It’s great to ask, more generally, how everything is with them. If they want to cry on your shoulder or share great news, they will.

Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.

Do NOT out anyone.

Got it?

Okay.

Une émotion poignante vint assombrir la joie de la barricade dégagée.

On fit l’appel. Un des insurgés manquait. Et qui? Un des plus chers. Un des plus vaillants. Jean Prouvaire. On le chercha parmi les blessés, il n’y était pas; on le chercha parmi les morts, il n’y était pas. Il était évidemment prisonnier.

Combeferre dit à Enjolras :

– Ils ont notre ami; nous avons leur agent. Tiens-tu à la mort de ce mouchard?

– Oui, répondit Enjolras; mais moins qu’à la vie de Jean Prouvaire.

Ceci se passait dans la salle basse près du poteau de Javert.

– Eh bien, reprit Combeferre, je vais attacher mon mouchoir à ma canne, et aller en parlementaire leur offrir de leur donner leur homme pour le nôtre.

– Ecoute, dit Enjolras en posant sa main sur le bras de Combeferre.

Il y avait au bout de la rue un cliquetis d’armes significatif.

On entendit une voix mâle crier :

– Vive la France! vive l’avenir!

On reconnut la voix de Prouvaire.

Un éclair passa et une détonation éclata.

Le silence se refit.

– Ils l’ont tué, s’écria Combeferre.

IV, 14, 5. Fin des vers de Jean Prouvaire

LM 69 minute prompts day 28, characters playing a board game! Joly and Grantaire cannot believe that sheer luck results in one smug jerk winning so many games in a row, Bossuet can believe anything about random chance as long as he’s not winning, and Bahorel is probably cheating like anything but hey, making everyone prove it is part of the game, right?

Different Sherlock portrayals as cats. Because I can.

House is the uncontrollable crazy cat.

Robert Downey Jr. cat is the flaunting type.

BBC Sherlock is the brooding cat.

Elementary Sherlock is the cuddly one.

Canon Sherlock is an awesome YouTube keyboard cat that Watson is always impressed by.

Accurate.
