Assassination Vocabulary

“They are from two worlds. And you know, they fall in love.” - John Lasseter on WALL•E and EVE


“They are from two worlds. And you know, they fall in love.” - John Lasseter on WALL•E and EVE

The point I’m trying to make is that I am the most unpleasant, rude, ignorant, and all around obnoxious asshole that anyone could possibly have the misfortune to meet. I am dismissive of the virtuous, unaware of the beautiful, and uncomprehending in the face of the happy. So if I didn’t understand I was being asked to be the best man, it is because I never really expected to ever be anybody’s best friend … certainly not the best friend of the bravest and kindest and wisest human being I have ever had the good fortune of knowing. John, I am a ridiculous man, redeemed only by the warmth and constancy of your friendship, but as I’m apparently your best friend I cannot congratulate you on your choice of companion. Actually, now, I can. Mary, when I say you deserve this man it is the highest compliment of which I am capable. John, you have endured war, and injury, and tragic loss — so sorry again about that last one — so know this: Today, you sit here between the woman you have made your wife and the man you have saved. In short, the two people who love you most in all this world. And, I know I speak for Mary as well when I say we will never let you down and we have a lifetime ahead to prove that

Finally… it’s here! Again! The 20,000 follower giveaway for! Ignoring the fact that I’ve put this off so long that we’re at 24,000! Whoops!

So! What you will receive, as my poo-quality photos might indicate:

  • Brave activity book. But not any activity book! I purchased it specifically for you when I was in Morocco. It’s in Arabic, but you can obviously/hopefully figure out how to match things up anyway.
  • An Ariel notebook. Write some notes while you sit in the movie theater, reviewing movies like the cranky feminist you are(n’t/can be?)
  • Feminist Disney postcards. They were experiments in ordering so, the text is a little missing on Poca’s but overall okay.
  • Pair of earrings I purchased in Germany. Those are actually mine (in pic), yours are still on an earring thing but this was easier to photograph. That’s right, we’ll be twinsies. They’re neat, you’ll look like a horse and giraffe are leaping through your ear
  • Lizzie McGuire DVD :) I chose Lizzie McGuire - Totally Crushed Vol. 4 not for the theme, but it had one episode more than the other DVD options. And because it would be repetitive to do Lilo and Stitch again
  • A copy of Ella Enchanted since I couldn’t find another non-fiction option that I liked since last time. But here’s the deal! If you’ve already read it or don’t want to (it is admittedly for young teens) I’m happy to offer substitute choices. It’s a good book but there’s others!


-Please only enter if this site is relevant to your interests

-Anything counts as your “entry” except messages. See link for rules for why I won’t say what counts. I’ll pick at random. 

-This is my giveaway, not Tumblr’s, as per their rules on giveaways I must specify that they are not endorsing it in any way. You must also be 18. You should be a U.S. resident. I am not actually collecting info but if I was, it would be coming to me, and not Tumblr. Tumblr has nothing to do with this at all. At all!

-You must dance to music with your tongue, secretly, tomorrow

-Winner will be drawn on in about two weeks, on Jan. 30th, at random

Good luck!

I will reblog it during the day and decide a winner by… Monday because I’m going away for the weekend and won’t have internet after work tomorrow

sorry even though that was mildly predictable given my track record

last chance to enter!

One of the best lines in the movie.
