Benedict Cumberbatch’s Ice Bucket Challenge.
This man is hilarious, charitable, and all around amazing.
So make sure to donate to this worthy cause and support research for this crippling disease.
look and see her eyes, they glow
Apparently there are those who have not seen this video, and that is unfortunate. There is not a single time I”ve watched this without tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.
I Knew You Were Trouble (Cover) - AJ Rafael x @RyanMGrey
When the chair next to you is empty and your crush walks in
Broken Crown - Mumford & Sons
So crawl on my belly ‘til the sun goes down
I’ll never wear your broken crown
I took the road and I fucked it all away
Now in this twilight, how dare you speak of grace?
The truth of this is ridiculous. Obsession? Addiction? Yes…that too.
Oh my golly! Yes! I got another one! (*Would you calm down? People are going to think you’re a nutcase and while a little bit of that is healthy, (Bones voice) be reasonable man.*) Right, sorry. I get super giddy when people write and ask me questions. Squee!
Right to the question (mobile Bat…man? Sorry.)
25. Favorite TV show:
I think I already answered this in another one but again it makes me so happy to answer these. I love BBC’s Sherlock. Love it. I think most of it has to do with the aplomb with which Benedict plays that particular character. I think what really hooked me was when in “The Blind Baker” when Seb Wilkes tells Watson “We all hated him.” The look on Sherlock’s face sent me into tears. I was the smart kid in school. I knew that look. I’d had that look and in that singular expression I fell head over heels in love with that show.
45. One thing that makes me feel great is:
The feeling I get when I can make help someone by making them laugh or smile when they have gone through a hard time or when they are in the middle of a situation that feels helpless and that look that they give you as they genuinely smile with tears in their eyes and nod because they feel like everything will be all right. There is nothing like that.
60. I lose all respect for people who:
OK, so I work at Starbucks and I have worked there for nearly 9 years. I have had experiences with a lot of really shitty people and I have met customers who have become my closest friends. So I have a lot of experience with this particular…phenomenon. I will lose respect for you in .3 seconds flat if you are rude to someone in customer service. I don’t care if they gave you the wrong thing, messed up your order, or what have you. They are human beings and being rude to them is not going to help anything but for people to see how much of an asshole you are. For example, just today a man was watching me make his drinks.
"Can you make sure that’s light on the cream?"
"Aaron made sure to write that on the cup, so you got it."
"Good." A different drink in his order.
"You are making that decaf, right?" People have caffeine problems, I understand that so all right.
"Yup, says decaf right here so there’s the decaf button *hits it* so no problem." I don’t like when people tell me how to do my job especially when I am in the middle of doing it. Clarifying is cool, but there’s a subtle difference in people’s voices when they are doing it because they want to make sure it’s right and when they think you’re incompetent. So I am putting whip cream on a blended beverage (not his) and he yells as he slams his hand down on the counter,
"Hey! Hey, I don’t want whipped cream on mine. Do you hear me?" It’s hard to be civil when someone is yelling at you so in a very even tone I ask,
"Sir, which one is ‘mine’?"
"The coffee frappuccino. I don’t want whip on that."
"It actually doesn’t come with whipped cream, the drink I was putting whipped cream on isn’t yours."
"Oh." That’s all he says. I was livid. Then he proceeds, before I am even done with the drink, to reach around the partition to my workspace and grab a straw. Do I go to his place of work and rather than ask for something I need simply reach around to his desk and take it? No. That is proper human decency. I don’t like being treated like less of a person because I am taking care of you. t’s not just Starbucks, if you are rude to any sort of customer service person without them being explicitly nasty to you, we cannot be friends.
End of rant.
75. What are you going to do when you grow up?
Ha. Hahaha. Hahahahaha. I think at this point I am actually considered profoundly “grown up”. I am older than I look. I think there is a difference between what my dream is and what my practical side will do. My dream is to be a novelist and have my stories loved/ hated/ giggled at and delight people. It has been my dream since I have been little. Next dream (and quite possible) is that I want to teach English in France. That would be amazing so I am looking into that. Teaching here would be good too, but I want to see the places I’ve only read about.
98. The last time I took a vacation.
The last time I took a vacation, a genuine vacation where I was not simply going to be with family on holiday for Thanksgiving (which I did…last year I think?) is what I’m going to go with because if you’ve ever had to go and visit family…you know that’s not really a vacation. So I will go with time about three years ago where my best friend bought me tickets to Universal Studios and a Coldplay concert in Florida. I literally cried I was so happy. I have wanted to go there my whole life and I love Coldplay. I got to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and ride The Mummy, and the concert was absolutely incredible. That was one of the greatest trips of my life.
Thank you again darling for the questions. Messages make me giddy happy.
