Hi I am Jen. I like anything from Supernatural to cooking to being outside. I have bi-polar and an anxiety disorder so sometimes when I am in a bad place I come here to vent.
It blows my mind that after all this time you’ve spent on earth, nobody ever bothered to tell you that your eyes aren’t fucking brown.
They are copper against honey and sage and when they water they glow, two perfect orbs the same shade as nature after it rains.
You’re not as simple as they wanted you to be.
"you’re not as simple as they wanted you to be"
Can we just talk about this movie for one minute? I’d been meaning to go on about the freaking Croods for a really long time
Eep is one of the prime reasons that I respect Dreamworks more than Disney (while i adore both DIsney and Pixar). This is one of the first times I’ve ever seen a female lead that doesn’t fit your stereotypical “princess” expectations. Even Merida, while she was a big step from typical perfect, petite princesses, still had the pretty dresses and the nice figure and even some beautiful—albeit unruly—hair.
But Eep, man—Eep is the female that’s resembled me the closest. A naturally frizzy poof of hair, less than perfect teeth, wide shoulders, even broken, sometimes dirty nails. But the thing about her? She embraces that. She’s proud of who she is, and doesn’t change—even for Guy’s sake.
And granted, she has flaws, other than physical ones. She’s boy-crazy, and pretty impulsive. And another thing that separates this film from Disney? Her traits begin as a major turn-off for Guy. Instead of love at first sight, this boy recoils at her (pardon the pun) crude mannerisms and family, her naivete, and her rambunctiousness. It takes a while for him to warm up to her—And even during this period, she doesn’t change just to please him.
This line in the film was probably meant as some comic blurb to make the audience laugh, but I really think it shows how far Dreamworks has come in overcoming some of these female expectations that Disney’s carved into the world of animation. Yes, Eep’s heavy. But in the world of a cavegirl, this is sensible. This means she’s well-fed, her body is thriving, and things are good.
This movie just makes me really happy to have a character proud of her “flaws”, inside and out.
Good job pet store. That is what’s up.
I worked in a pet store for 5 years, and every Easter our rabbit sales went up exponentially. I can tell you from experience that almost half of the rabbits we sold were brought back in as early as two weeks after they were adopted. Some people let them loose, and some people send them to a shelter. People need to understand this very statement, and truly think about it. A rabbit is a big commitment, and should not be a fad or seen as a compulsory pet.
I cannot like this anymore than once, but I sure as hell hope people will spread this message, because it’s important as hell. I used to hand out care sheet BOOKLETS to everyone looking to adopt, and it prevented many of them from adopting in the end.
This goes for any animal, holy hell big underscores and exclamation marks. Huge props to this pet store for trying to put their pets before sales instead of shelling them out like candy.
how do you say ‘please talk to me more i crave your company’ to someone without sounding like a creep
tumblr is perfect for people like me who need 15 minutes to think of a reply to a message
