genderific replied to your post:p much half my drafts/likes/whatever rn are Tessa…AHHHHHHH FEEEEEEEELS. Not saying I went to grad school in London Ont. because it’s where they’re from but… I was there checking out the school the day of their free skate in 2010 SO.
Guhh that must have been so excting! At that time I was just getting into them so idk, but I must say, my stages of love for those two happened pretty darn fast, it was like
Stage 1: Uh they’re cute!
Stage 2: Oh no they’re /too/ cute!
Stage 3: They’re super awesome too NOT FAIR, MY FEEELS
And that’s how I fell in love and now I’m like I’VE FALLEN AND I CAN’T GET UP
This is the first time I ever saw them, at the 2007 nationals:
And I thought they looked like Ariel and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid and I had ALL THE FEELS and everything was happening and they have been my faves ever since. The end.

Aww 100 notes! I didn’t expect that many when I made this, because it’s not an American/British show :)
Cute dude in period costume reunites cute lady in period costume with her books. They look adorably into each others’ eyes. AUTOMATIC SHIPPING TIMES TWNETY FIVE MILLION.
I get this is supposed to be tongue in cheek, but most of these were not my experience of the 90s. Blockbuster had like 30 copies of most movies when they were new to video, and a couple of copies of the older ones. We had a cordless phone in the 90s. We had working internet at home from 1991 on, though information wasn’t as easily searchable and there wasn’t as much of it. Motorola made a cell phone about the size of my palm in 1994. The discman thing is fair, but that’s why we had cassette tapes. We had a second phone line for the internet. The rewind thing is accurate, but it’s not like you had to rewind by hand in candlelight. The no lyrics is accurate. And yeah. DJs talking while you’re recording a song was annoying. I know my experiences were not universal, but it wasn’t like we were starting wars based on letters written the previous year.
You had a SECOND PHONE LINE FOR THE INTERNET?????????? I didn’t even know that was possible!!!!!!!!!
I remember when we first got internet in the computer lab at school. Way back when using any online source in your assignment would immediately lower your grade because the teachers just assumed it was always wrong… That was 1998, I want to say? We had just just gotten in those brand new colourful iMacs, donated by one of the local high tech companies. Anyway. My experience of technological evolution was kind of weird because I lived on the edge of a rural area so residential internet adoption was slow, but it was also near several high tech business parks so a lot of people were on the forefront of technology professionally (like I knew people who worked at RIM back when cell phones were barely a thing and they had very early Blackberries).

OLD CENTRE BLOCK <3<3
look some American dude made a really good video on Canada’s public healthcare system
Ha, I wonder what made Mary(/the writers) think of Kalona. I didn’t even think Canadians would know about Kalona. I mean as an American I didn’t even know what Banff was, and that’s not a little town, it’s a national park.
Anyway, Mary, you should really tell your friend Hillary Yoder that she should really talk to Carrie about this. If it’s really going to make or break the relationship, isn’t it better that happen sooner than later? Less wasted time and less heartbreak that way.
I can see how that could be confusing. Mary is actually talking about Kelowna- a city in British Columbia about 4 or 5 hours from Vancouver in the Okanogan Valley. It’s a bit of a tourist hotspot because of all the wineries/fruit orchards and extreme sports.
But it’s pronounced the same as Kalona :)
We’re doing Tourism BC so many favours with this show.
*COUGH*they should send us a gift basket *COUGH*
*canadian cred* I totally got the Kelowna reference. I think I know someone from there.
I have a collector’s spoon with Ogopogo on it from when my dad went to Kelowna for business once!
#I DO NEED FEMINISM because:
- women still earn less than men for the same jobs
- women are under-represented in all media
- rape culture exists
- media and legislators are still trying to tell women what their bodies should look like and what they should do with them
- sexism is so ingrained in our culture that people don’t even realize when it’s happening
I need feminism because there are so many people who believe that feminism means women getting treated better than they deserve.
Seriously if you made it through those tweets without feeling queasy I don’t even know.
SHAKESPEARE WROTE THAT ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE.
HIS THEATER WAS CALLED THE GLOBE.
NOT ONLY WAS THAT LINE PHILOSOPHICAL AND DEEP
BUT IT WAS ALSO A FUCKING PUN
well it was also spoken by a character who’s like this emo type dude who thinks he’s being super deep all the time and goes on and on about this metaphysical crap while the other characters make fun of him. so. you know. whatever. philosophical and deep or a massive joke, your pick.
Because HERITAGE CLAAAASSSSSIC YOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
