My local rescue has a program called Book Buddies where kids read to sheltered cats to keep them from being lonely.

That’s beautiful.

I’ve heard of those programs! It’s not just for the cats either. It helps kids who are having difficulty reading too. Animals aren’t intimidating to read to because they don’t care when you screw up, and it helps kids look forward to reading because it means they get to visit a kitty.

I just read an article that asked everyone to list in the comments how they found out Santa wasn’t real, and I was surprised at the number of people who admitted that they pretended to believe for a few years longer, so as not to upset their parents.

I don’t know what to think about that, man. I feel like that’s some deep shit.

remember when we were kids and we used to all sing that demented version of the barney song where it was like “i hate you you hate me let’s go out and kill barney”

i don’t remember ever doing this. you were a fucked up kid

i hate you

you hate me

let’s go out an kill barney

with a baseball bat

and a 4x4

NO MORE PURPLE DINOSAUR

WE HAD SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT LYRICS BUT YES I REMEMBER THIS

Pretty sure ours was “Take a two-by-four and knock him to the floor” but

yeah.

Kids are fucked up.

I think ours involved a stick of TNT somewhere, but I can’t remember.

I do remember the schoolyard version of Yankee Doodle I learned in Little League:

Yankee Doodle went to town

riding on a rocket.

Stuck the trigger up his butt

and called it Hershey’s chocolate.

Storytime!

Tonight, I’m going to tell you about my favorite game when I was a kid.

It was called “Drunken Santa”.

You see, I went to one of those after-school drop-off places for kids who were too old for daycare but too young to be latchkey kids, run by the mother of one of my classmates, who basically just kicked the whole pack of us downstairs into her refurbished basement to play unsupervised for a few hours. It was pretty great.

We had a few set “games” that we liked to play, that consisted of us running through a basic script of events with a set of stock characters, but the most popular one, and the one I remember the most, was Drunken Santa.

One kid would play Santa, one kid would play Mrs. Claus, one kid would play the head elf, and one kid would play… the kid.

The premise of Drunken Santa was that Santa Claus was a hopeless alcoholic, and it was the night before Christmas. Mrs. Claus would warn Santa not to get drunk and ruin Christmas for all the boys and girls. Santa would promise her that he wouldn’t drink, but she wouldn’t believe him, so she’d send the head elf along to keep an eye on him.

Sure enough, as soon as the sleigh took off, Santa would pull out a flask and get drunk, leading to a scene of Santa drunkenly steering the sleigh to and fro. He’d pull up at the first house and go down the chimney to deliver a present, where he’d inevitably wake up the kid with his loud, drunken stumbling about, and the head elf would have to do damage control and try and talk the kid back to sleep. After that fiasco, the head elf would decide that everything would run much smoother if he did the rounds himself, so he’d take over toy delivering duties from Santa from then on.

Once Santa arrived back home, Mrs. Claus would be so furious at him for getting drunk and almost ruining Christmas for all the boys and girls that she’d beat him with a rolling pin.

This was a real game that we really played, over and over, with different people in the roles each time, though some people gravitated to some roles more than others. Once the woman who ran this after-school place found out about the game, she tried to forbid us from playing it, but we kept playing it anyway.

I’m not sure what the point of this story was, except to say that kids are weird and have different ideas about what’s “appropriate” than adults do, and don’t let anyone tell you different.

Hey Ashlynn, you’d know if anyone would.
Either way, this is cute as FUCK.

I’m gonna take this moment to just say YES to hot dads. Because that right there, my friends? That is devotion.

Cutest Thor Ever via Mary Sue.

This is adorable!

I AM GOING TO ACQUIRE THIS CHILD AND LOVE HER

THIS MIDGARDIAN CHILD HIS GOOD TASTE!  METHINKS PERHAPS WE ARE SEEING A FUTURE FEMALE WARRIOR!

My head canon is that each of the Avengers ends up with core group of fangirl/boys, like Natasha’s (or the one she acknowledges) are teenage girls mainly who see her as their hero, little boys love the Hulk, but Thor? Little girls between like the ages of 4 and 10, cause dude he is a Prince, who rides on a rainbow bridge, and is basically the fairy tale prince in real life. And Thor fucking loves it. His room at the Tower is just plastered with drawings they send him, and he tries as hard as he can to respond to each and every letter he gets. 

HEADCANON ACCEPTED.

And Clint and Tony would try to tease Thor about it but he’s just so proud of all his little fangirls and of the drawings and other things they send him and he’s so earnest about it that Clint and Tony end up more than a little jealous.

I AM SO OKAY WITH THIS IDEA

and oh man I just picture him meeting one of his little baby fans and they have their own little baby mjolnir and he asks her if she’d like to hold the real one, and her eyes get all big because what?? only thor can hold mjolnir! she knows that!! So he crouches down next to her, gently holding her hand as it holds mjolnir so that even though he’s the one holding the weight, she gets to feel like she’s actually the one holding the hammer and her eyes go half as big as her whole head as grins all big and he tells her ”clearly you are worthy, little warrior!”

STOP IT

MY POOR HEART

I DID NOT ASK FOR THESE FEELS

THOR YOU SWEETIE

P.S. I think both Steve and Tony would have some deeply embarrassing fans (ultra-nationalists and dudebros, respectively), but the good ones would make up for it (cool old dudes who “get it” and tech nerds, respectively).

Clint’s fans would be stoners.
