there’s going to be a party next week and i invited this woman who i’m attracted to to come with me to it, and i think i’m going to try and get to know her a little better because i want to have some sort of relationship with her but HOLY SHIT I’M TERRIBLE AT THAT SORT OF THING so i’m really nervous and i’m also afraid that i’ll drink way too much and make an ass of myself.
To preface, I should probably say that I’m (a cis-female) gender queer and view gender as a fluid spectrum. When I wish to portray myself as (stereotypically) male/female, I do so and I like the pronoun usage to match my portrayal. Generally I…
Mike Flanagan was getting pounded all over the ballpark in Osaka, Japan, when Orioles manager Joe Altobelli went to the mound to end the misery that day in 1984.
‘Not your day, Flanny,’ Altobelli said as Flanagan handed him the ball.
Flanagan paused before leaving the mound.
‘You know,’ he said, ‘I heard this might happen.’
‘What’s that?’ Altobelli asked.
‘My slider breaks the opposite way on this side of the world,’ he said without cracking a smile.
”—Richard Justice at The Houston Chronicleshares some memories of Mike Flanagan. There will certainly be many reaction to the man’s passing over the next few days. Mr. Flanagan was winning games before my time, but his legacy has become quickly evident to me. (via oldtimefamilybaseball)
It’s a fun but hard game. I love it very much, i played it for 40 hours within the first 4-5 days i had it, but it gives me headaches because i get so frustrated when i can’t get my team to do what i want. It’s super in-depth, down to making training schedules and determining the focus of individual players’ personal training. You also don’t control your players, you sit on the touchline and watch like an actual coach. you can switch tactics and give touchline instructions, but thus far i’ve not been terribly good with it. barely avoided relegation with Lincoln City FC in my first year, then had to resign because i applied for a job (just to see what would happen) and the application got leaked to the public. currently managing a semi-pro team in the Blue Square Bet Premier North Division, it’s infuriatingly hard. But i still love it. It’s weird.
i know this because i can smell it when i open the door
it reminds me of the time we had a 25lb turkey in our freezer in the garage, but the freezer broke and so for an entire summer the turkey rotted with the door closed.
sure enough, we figured out what was wrong, and of course i was the person who had to get the turkey out and spray the whole damn thing down.
worst thing i’ve ever smelled
anyways, i think the cantaloupe or whatever is what it is. but i don’t wanna touch it because i’ve handled enough rotting shit in my life to never have to do it (so long as i have an older folk around)
