Alright, so, here’s the deal.

See the person in the lower right hand corner? That’s the woman that did the post on Southern Linguistics. She’s also my mom, and we recorded it on a lark a year or so ago. But that’s not the point right now.

My family and I have a little soap company. Most of our employees are our family members, and a few others beside. We travel to conventions, we sell soap and candles (mostly fandom based things) and we quite enjoy doing so. We aren’t the richest company in the world, but we love what we do.

As of right now, we’re trying to crowdfund the money together so we can expand our ventures and full time hire a few more people. Now, normally, we’d ask our family for the help, since they’re willing to come together and split the amount between themselves.

but the problem is most of our relatives are kinda on the pro-Christian, anti-anything-other-than-straight-and-the-gender-they-were-born side of things, and would force us to fire anyone that wouldn’t mesh with their ideals before giving us the money. (You know, the one bad apple ruins the batch mentality and all).

And that would be 90% of our employees.

We want to keep making our products, and we want to keep everyone on board, but without getting even a fraction of the amount were asking, we would still have to let people go. My mother—the founder and CEO—is dead set against that; her attitude is, “you are who you are. You love who you love. You worship—or don’t worship—who and what you worship. Period.”

So here : This is the link to our IndieGoGo.

Even if you don’t donate, or don’t have the means to, please reblog and help get the word out; we already are taking a HUGE step of faith just putting ourselves out there, and we can’t do it alone.

Thank you for reading, and thanks in advance for sharing.

sometimes I think about Wes and Oliver becoming friends totally by accident and doing normal non-illegal non-murder things like having coffee, complaining about work/school/lovelife, marathoning the geeky show they both definitely like, whatever. friendsss. (there's gotta be some point in time where Connor sees them just hanging out and it's Super Awkward and after a beat Wes is like WAIT *YOU'RE* THE TERRIBLE BOYFRIEND?)

Omfg, I would more than likely die from joy if that were to happen.




Doesn’t look like a limerick to you? Try this:

A dozen, a gross, and a score
Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.

in french we don’t say “i love you”, we say “vous recevez une heure supplémentaire dans la piscine à balles” which roughly translates to “you are my sun, my stars, my everything” and i think that’s beautiful

I said, “The only way I can play someone this hard is for something to be peeled away each week, and the first thing that needs to go is the wig.” I just wanted to deal with her hair. It’s a big thing with African-American women…You start when you’re just a young girl. Do you twist it? Do you leave it natural when it’s so hard to take care of? Then you start wearing wigs but every night before bed you’ve got to take the wig off and deal with your hair underneath. And it’s a part of Annalise that I needed the writers to deal with because I’ve never seen it, ever, on TV and I thought it would be very powerful. It’s part of her mask. - Viola Davis (x)
