my entire life changed when my dentist told me that the only time my teeth should be touching is when i’m chewing. every single time my teeth are touching i have to separate them. and i noticed that i clench my teeth a LOT.

when your mouth is closed and your teeth are touching or held tightly together, you are unnecessarily straining muscles out of stress. the healthiest way to hold your jaw is slightly apart, where it is relaxed. THIS HELPS WITH HEADACHES

I unclenched my jaw upon reading this.

You guys, never combine looking for alternative games to f/m/k with reading comments on a post about which county team to support.

Because I’m now all like HEY @battingonjakku , fluff/tousle/shave: Jonny, Joe & Pudsey.

ETA: You can also do pinch/tickle/rub if you like.

Simple simple. 

Fluff - Jonny, Tousle - Pudsey, Shave is obviously Joe Root.

Jonny & Pudsey rock the beard, actualy Pudsey is part man part beard because he’s clean shaven one day and has a full beard the next/that afternoon

Pinch - Jonny - just a friendly nip (he does friendly headbutts after all). Tickle - Joe, he strikes me as a ticklish man. Rub - Pudsey, because that sounds relevant to my interests.

Did Pudsey get picked up for the eye pee ell because if we have a whip round we could probably raise enough to let all of us rub him. For science.

this is it, this is the best pun ever, everyone else just go home






A small list of random ass sites I’ve found useful when writing:

  • Fragrantica: perfume enthusiast site that has a long list of scents. v helpful when you’re writing your guilty pleasure abo fics
  • Just One Cookbook: recipe site that centers on Japanese cuisine. Lots of different recipes to browse, plenty of inspiration so you’re not just “ramen and sushi” 
  • This comparing heights page: gives you a visual on height differences between characters
  • A page on the colors of bruises+healing stages: well just that. there you go. describe your bruises properly
  • McCormick Science Institute: yes this is a real thing. the site shows off research on spices and gives the history on them. be historically accurate or just indulge in mindless fascination. boost your restaurant au with it
  • A Glossary of Astronomy Terms: to pepper in that sweet terminology for your astrophysics major college au needs

Adding to this since I’m working on a shifter au one-shot:


  • Cocktail Flow: a site with a variety of cocktails that’s pretty easy to navigate and offers photos of the drinks. You can sort by themes, strengths, type and base. My only real annoyance with this site is that the drinks are sometimes sorted into ~masculine~ and ~feminine~ but ehhhh. It’s great otherwise.
  • Tie-A-Tie: a site centered around ties, obviously. I stumbled upon it while researching tie fabrics but there’s a lot more to look at. It offers insight into dress code for events, tells you how to tie your ties, and has a section on the often forgotten about tie accessories

Even more:

That is indeed vaguely threatening encouragement from a small octopus.

Please enjoy this vaguely threatening octopus.


Ask me my "TOP 5/TOP 10" anything!





@ my fellow adults who use tumblr a lot:

can you PLEASE put your age in your about/sidebar and make sure it’s accessible on mobile. imo if you’re an adult esp 20+ it’s a little weird that you wouldn’t have your age readily available on your blog. if you’re reading this now and you don’t have your age listed, please rectify that. i feel like teenagers get lured into talking to adults in fandom/lgbt spaces that they may not have intentionally sought out because they think they’re talking to other teenagers, and this can lead to a lot of other – much more insidious –problems

I know other people have already refuted this, but seeing the original message still going around I’d like to point out just a couple of reasons why this request - while well intentioned - misses a lot of key points:  

1. This is working under the assumption that tumblr is a space solely (or at least primarily) for teenagers/kids and that simply isn’t the case. Historically the creation of fanfiction, fanvids, fanart, etc. has been done by people in their twenties and older.  Think about how many years it takes to learn how to craft a good story. Think about what you need to pull something like a con together. That person with the Skill you admire? There’s a very good chance they’re an adult. It used to be that kids pretended to be 18+ because they knew online fan communities were adult spaces. I’m not sure when this switch happened, but it needs to stop.

2. It is not “a little weird” that people don’t put their age on their blog. I have mine because I’m comfortable sharing it and my fan identity/irl identity are already really conflated, but a lot of people - most people - want to keep personal information to themselves. There’s nothing wrong with that and insisting that we reveal that information is all kinds of wrong. Can you ask someone their age? Certainly! Maybe they’ll tell you, maybe they won’t, but regardless you are not entitled to that information. 

3. The children on here? They are not my responsibility. If kids/teens are worried about who they’re talking to then they should either a) be careful about who they interact with or b) not use this website. If they’re too young to understand this then they’re too young to be online without parental supervision. Now, how can a teen be careful about who they interact with? Check the person’s blog. See the kind of content they post. See if there are any hints about their age (mentions of school, job, birthdays, etc.) - or again, just ask! I’ve had plenty of people on here decide they only want certain types of interaction with me after discovering my age and that’s fine. But it’s not my job to monitor everyone else’s internet use.

4. Finally, I find the language here to be rather concerning. “A little weird,” teenagers are “lured,” leading to things that are “much more insidious”… all of this, whether intentionally or not, frames anyone 20+ as intrinsically predatory. It also takes agency away from anyone under 18. Teenagers aren’t “lured” into talking to me, they make that decision on their own. They are their own person capable of making their own decisions, gathering information before making that decision (like asking someone’s age) or, if they can’t do these two steps then again, they should not be online. We’ve come right back to point #1: this is not your space. It’s our space. I’m not some trespasser here who only gets to stay provided that I cater to those younger than me. If anything, based on how much of online content is geared towards adults, kids should be working under the assumption that they are speaking to an adult until proven otherwise, especially on websites like tumblr that cater to all ages. Don’t assume you’re talking to another teenager. Don’t project onto a person and then get mad when you find out you’re wrong. That’s not them tricking you, that’s you failing to take responsibility for yourself. 

You want to know someone’s age? Ask, and then work with the answer you’re given. But someone failing to give you private information up front isn’t weird or predatory or insidious. The quicker everyone realizes that the better off we’ll all be.   

@ teens:

I get it. You’re used to your peer groups being divided by age range. You’ve experienced it all through school. But once you hit adulthood, age differences becomes less and less relevant in social groups. You’ll find yourself forming friendships based on shared interests or shared life experiences (e.g. parenthood) rather than age. This is probably why most of the people I know over the age of 25 don’t bother putting their age on their blogs. It doesn’t feel relevant. It has no bearing on our beliefs, interests, or fandom involvement. It’s not how we define ourselves, especially since those numbers have a disconcerting habit of changing every year. 

You say it’s “a little weird” that we don’t list our ages on our blogs, but it’s actually completely natural. Frankly, it’s a little weird that you expect us to.

I’m kind of confused here - why is teens talking to adults a bad thing? Intergenerational friendships are great! Is this an American thing? Because when I was a teen pretty much all my friends were adults, some in their fifties. And I’m still immeasurably grateful they existed; because I wouldn’t have survived without them, social pariah that I was in my own age group! They doted on me and actually listened to all the shit I told them…it was great! And not a single one of them ever said or did anything inappropriate.

Yes, there are predators out there. But online the risk is relatively small if you follow a handful of rules like - 

  • don’t tell them where you live beyond country X, state Y (and maybe really big city Z)
  • don’t meet them in real life (even if you trust them. Don’t. And if they are trustworthy, they won’t ask)
  • don’t send them selfies (or nudes. oh hell don’t do that)
  • if they say or do something that makes you uncomfortable - block them
  • for goodness’ sake - don’t share so much personal info openly on the internet. If you tell everyone your full name and the school you attend on facebook, a predator doesn’t need to talk to you to find you

This idea that parents and immediate family are the only adults a kid should talk to is so incredibly damaging and isolating, especially to queer kids looking for guidance. Parents aren’t always best equipped to help them, and if you’re queer, the best source of comfort and information are other queer people, preferably those who have the life experience to actually be helpful.

Family structures grow regardless of blood, and friendships like these can be incredibly helpful for kids stuck in abusive households, and most adults will fall into a caretaker role when confronted with a kid. We’ll want to help because helping feels good! Same as you’d help a squirrel stuck in a fence.

No, adults talking to you about life and shit isn’t weird. No, not everyone you talk to wants to get in your pants. Yes, it’s okay to be cautious. It’s actually necessary to be cautious, and you are absolutely allowed (and encouraged) to set boundaries for yourself. But it’s a case by case thing, and asking all adults on the internet to self-police so you won’t have to interact with any content you’re uncomfortable with? That’s a bit entitled and unreasonable. You are in an adult space, the internet, by and large, is for adults, not for children. Please behave accordingly.








I see your sports gloom, and I raise you…


…Colly in a vest.

#sports gloom #versus colly in a vest #who will win?

lbr the story of @yr-28k-modem‘s life

#more sleeveless colly MORE #did you guys hear the recent grade cricketer podcast #where one of them #i can’t tell them apart #just goes into this reverie #about how much buffer colly is since he stopped playing #and how good he’s looked in his singlets this tour #lollllllll

So that just led to me having a panicked Google to check that Colly hadn’t quietly retired from Durham without me noticing and phew there’s his cocky ginger face on the players tab.  But yes totally agree.  Buffer.  In a vest.  More?  OK then.


also @albiegeorge , don’t you worry every year Colly claims he’s gonna retire and every year he changes his mind, he’s been doing it since 2011. As long as the lads need him and vests are manufactured, Colly will be at Durham.

idk I just thought the Baywatch pic might be relevant

Okay but after seeing this I started doing it too and it’s amazing how many men I’ve run into bc they expected me to move

Gotta try it

I work (and walk) on a college campus. I’ve lost count of how many men I’ve smacked shoulders with.

Recently, I was standing outside my son’s classroom waiting to talk to his teacher. I stood on one side of the hallway, not even close to the center. At some point, a man came walking along. I was standing right in his path, but the hallway was empty, so I logically expected him to swerve around me. Instead he kept walking right toward me, got to me, and stopped, as if waiting for me to get out of his way. I didn’t; I just smiled politely at him. He finally walked around me, clearly annoyed that I hadn’t leapt out of his manly path.

Now I’m wishing I’d leapt aside, taken off my jacket and laid it on the floor before him, then bowed deeply and said, “My Liege!”

I also work at a college campus. I smack shoulders sometimes, but I find that if I stare straight ahead and follow the advice below, people get the heck out of the way.


Honestly this post changed how I carry myself when walking alone in public, or in a situation where I’m the one leading. People definitely move for the murder gaze.

Confirmed. I once had to rush back inside a convention hall as the con was closing in order to a retrieve a sick friend’s medication, and I didn’t understand why people in the crowd were jumping out of my way (literally—one guy vaulted a table) until I realized I was dressed as the Winter Soldier and doing the Murder Walk because that’s just how I walk in those boots. I got the meds, got out, and made a mental note.

I repeated the experiment later, wearing the boots but otherwise my usual clothing and mimicking the expression I thought I’d had at that moment. People parted like I was Charlton Heston.

I now wear that style of boots whenever possible. I recently had a man do a double-take as I walked by and ask me, politely, where I had served because I “looked like a soldier.” I’m not current or former military. I was wearing a flowy purple peasant top and looked as un-soldierlike as possible.

Moral of the story: wear comfortable shoes, square your shoulders, and walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America.


It’s called the Murder Strut.

IT’S BACK!!!!!! I was searching for this to show my daughter the other day and couldn’t find it. I’m so glad IT’S BACK!! I will always reblog the Murder Strut!!

A guy on a bike went around me because he could tell I had no intention of moving. Thanks to this post.

This post went from Scientific to Feminist to Educational to HILARIOUS!

#make men get the fuck out of the way 2k17

I do this now. Stand my ground. Men look flabberghasted that i wont move out of the way. The most annoying thing is when i’m walking along holding Superpups hand (he’s 2.5 years old), and people walk right up to us and expect to go between us… so for me to let go of my toddlers hand for the sake of them. One person i actually had to put my free hand out and onto their chest to block the person to stop before they ploughed into us.

Oh my word this is hilarious.

This post is legendary. I’ve tried it, too. Pair with black leather and/or sunglasses for maximum effect.

A few years ago, I found that Oscar de la Renta quote: “Walk like there are three men walking behind you.” And started doing it. I’m already a physically imposing person- almost 6 feet tall, wide shoulders, square jaw- but I’ve always been awkward about my size and shape. I thought I was supposed to be ladylike and delicate.

Well, fuck that.

Don’t get me wrong, I still have bad self esteem days or moments when I feel blobby or To Big To Be Allowed, but when I remember that I’m a fucking Celt/Viking badass, and I imagine a blade at my hip and an army at my back, people move the fuck outta the way.

It does something to your psyche to move like that. Especially when you don’t feel like you’re “allowed” to. I highly recommend it.

For those of you thinking of purchasing testosterone illegally please remember you are taking your life into your hands and you absolutely can overdose on T and it can be life threatening. Taking a ton of T will not masculinize you. Too much T can get converted back into estrogen.

Do not take any testosterone not purchased with your prescription given to you by your doctor. Every one’s dose is different.

Hormone imbalance can severely fuck up your body.

not on T but i’m sure some lovely soul out there on my blog may need this

plz b safe

This post very well could have just saved me bc I had no idea my vision getting blurry like this OR the headaches were signs of overdose despite telling my doctor about those two symptoms. So thank you.

The fact that testosterone can be converted into estrogen pisses me off.

Dear everyone who is currently working on a Thing, whatever that Thing may be,

Good luck with the Thing. You can do the Thing. You will do the Thing. You just have to do the Thing.

Best wishes,

Someone who is also doing a Thing

The person I reblogged this from is super cute and deserves to have a nice day



Dear cricket RPF writers,

I really love your stuff.  You are all golden.  Unless you prefer to be another colour.



This is 100% true; everyone is amazing <3

Super amazing!
