I swear to the gods the Blues and Blackhawks are conspiring against me sleeping any good amount these playoffs.
Joke’s on them, I’m going to skip OT entirely tonight! At an hour already past my bedtime! Wait…zzzz
ok but literally how
????????? I am concerned where did the baby birdies go
Reblogging for David Walliams’ face - psyched that someone screencapped it for my future use.
Turkish Halfeti Roses are incredibly rare. They are shaped just like regular roses, but their color sets them apart. These roses are so black, you’d think someone spray-painted them. But that’s actually their natural color.
Although they appear perfectly black, they’re actually a very deep crimson color. These flowers are seasonal – they only grow during the summer in small number, and only in the tiny Turkish village of Halfeti. Thanks to the unique soil conditions of the region, and the pH levels of the groundwater (that seeps in from the river Euphrates), the roses take on a devilish hue. They bloom dark red during the spring and fade to black during the summer months.
The local Turks seem to enjoy a love-hate relationship with these rare blossoms. They consider the flowers to be symbols of mystery, hope and passion, and also death and bad news.
Seeing a black rose in full bloom is a once-in-a-lifetime sort of thing. Don’t miss it if you ever happen to be in Turkey during the summer.

I would love these so much. Gahh I love flowers.
"We thought we were making a very serious movie. We didn’t know we were making a cult classic."
The most ’90s sentence ever: […] I went to a party with Jason Priestley, who I was dating at the time. We went to a party at Ricki Lake’s house, and she freaked out when she saw me.
Also, Teen Witch is the shit.
I’m grateful that the second game of the Blackhawks/Blues game is an afternoon one, but now that this one is going to OT, my new problem is that I have plans I leave for in about an hour. I can’t win. Unless one of them does in the next 45 minutes.
UPDATE: Thanks guys!
It’s nice to be in the land of PST! We were in bed by 11.
Seriously jealous, especially when I see my fears were true - they scored less than a minute into the triple OT period. If I had just given it 15 more minutes I would have seen it without terrible SportsCentre commentary over it.
Sorry Blackhawks and Blues, I’m no spring chicken anymore and I can only make it through two overtime periods. God speed to you both in the third and beyond.
I have lost many hours of sleep to playoff extra time, including once where I was up until after 4 but younger me is very disappointed in me; ”You have tomorrow off, you fool!” it’s screaming. Just can’t do’er, put a fork in me.
Flake with drawing of Osiris seated on his throne within a shrine. Egyptian Ptolemaic Period, 305- 30 B.C.E.
Even if he were not labeled by the hieroglyphs at the right (“Osiris, the great god”), this deity would be easy to identify. Osiris, lord of the underworld, is always shown as a mummy, often wearing the White Crown of Upper Egypt adorned with two feathers of Ma’at (cosmic harmony). Here the god holds his characteristic crook and flail and is seated in a shrine or under a canopy.
Though the almond eye, long nose, and full lips suggest a New Kingdom date (Dynasties XVIII–XX, circa 1539–1070 B.C.), many other details indicate that the sketch was made in the Ptolemaic Period. The meticulous detail, manifest in the delineation of the ear, the eye, the plaited beard, the nostril, the thumbnails, and the feather pattern of the throne, is diagnostic for Egyptian drawing and relief of the fourth through first centuries B.C.
