Stranger:That's a bit of a rediculous question, anyway...
You:Why do you believe so?
Stranger:I mean, we've never met in real life... how would we know whether or not we'd be sexually (or emotionally, or really any way) compatible?
You:Ahh.. So true, so very true.
Stranger:It'd be cool to know whether or not we'd be, just for the lols, but I don't really know you... :/
You:What do you think about puppets...?
Stranger:Muppets? Or straight-up puppets?
You:Straight up puppets...
You:But Muppets too I guess they are puppets..
Stranger:I think they're interesting, to say the least... it's quite the art form.
You:Like I put my hand up its back and can control one hand..
You:Okay.. Thanks. ^-^
Stranger:Why do you ask?
You:Because I have been messing with my puppet lately.
You:I am still working on his personality and life and whatnot.. But I have just been wondering how it would be taken.
Stranger:Hmm, alright, interesting.
You:But you saying art form made me smile.
Stranger:Well it is...
Stranger:Not everyone can do it well and make it look convincing...
You:I am still working on how to use his hand..
You:I have made him a youtube and just finished making a facebook.. But after a little bit of using him, he begins to hurt my hand.
You:So, it is difficult.. My longest use of him was 20-30 minutes I believe.
Stranger:Really, what makes it difficult? How heavy/complex is he?
You:Well.. Opening and closing the mouth is hard when you first start using them..
You:And I have not played with him often, seeing as I need someone for him to interact with.
You:But It gets really hot, and you are holding up your arm and opening and closing your hand a lot, and sometimes it it rather quickly.
Stranger:Ah, that would make sense. What type of puppeteering do you do?
You:...? I do not know how to answer that.. Like.. What does my puppet look like or what do I do with him?
Stranger:Well, both I s'pose.
You:Well.. He is an old Chinese man.. and I just kinda talk to my friends with him.. I have made him gay, so I can at least try to have a voice for him.. Though he doesn't have a set voice yet. I have recorded most uses of him.. But it is mostly just me trying to get him to talk and be used.
You:I don't have anything set to do with him yet. But he is just kinda there to mess. I do however like to make him pet one of my friends.
You:It freaks her out. XD
You:Yea.. We were having a sleep over and I tried to make him stare at her when she woke.. But I couldn't have him out.
You:I am thinking about bringing him to college.
Stranger:I think you should, if it's an art that you're passionate about you should definitely carry on with it.
You:But I feel if I walk around with him It will be out of place.. Sometimes I just hold him with his hand in his mouth because I do not kow what to do with him.
Stranger:Well, do you love the art?
Stranger:That's what it comnes down to.
You:I love my puppet..
Stranger:Well there ya go.
You:Yea.. I guess.
You:He is a good topic..
Stranger:If it matters to you, go for it.
Stranger:Fuck everyone elses' opinions.
You:I have been trying to find good puppet videos, to see how they use them, but everyone has a cooler puppet than me.
You:Plus, He needs a backstory..
You:Everyone has a good one, but he is still so vauge.. and everyone always asks him unanswerable questions.
Stranger:Well, you'll figure something out. ^_^
Stranger:I have faith in you, even though I don't really know you.
You:Thank you so much..
Stranger:You, my Stranger friend, are very welcome.
You:http://www.youtube.com/user/WusijiDr?feature=mhee You should look at him... He makes me smile...
Stranger:Alright, I'll see what I can do. ^_^
Stranger:I gotta go, I hope I could give you some guidence.
A Little girl, 3 yrs. old picked up by a man driving a gray car, license plate: Quebec 72B 381. Canada. Reblog this. It could save her. The Kidnapping is recent so do it, 3 seconds will not kill you. If it were your child .
“Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilightseries.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
So I’m going to do a giveaway of this vinylmation. It’s Rex from Toy Story. You will receive the box foil and card with the vinylmation. It is in great condition, I just opened it to see what it was then put it back in its foil and box. All you have to do is re-blog this post and make sure…
