Hello! I'm Sandi to most people, Cass to some, and to one in particular I am Biscuit. I love books, knitting, scrapbooking, photography, music, history, genealogy, baking, the wonderful people in my life, and especially one amazing guy. I am a graduate student in anthropology and I hope to go into historical archaeology.

I was ready to go to sleep and then my mom told me that a family friend’s grandchildren have been taken away from their parents because the baby has been physically abused and neglected… looks like I’m not sleeping ever again.

"“Hurry,” she was whispering now, “quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime.” Her hands helped guide him."
—  

Cersei Lannister, p 579, A Storm of Swords

- Also known as CONSENT also known as SHE WASN’T RAPED BY JAIME IN CANON meaning THE WRITERS OF THE SHOW CHOSE TO HAVE JAIME RAPE CERSEI WHEN SHE WASN’T RAPED IN THE FUCKING BOOKS 

(via doctaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)

Uh so my boyfriend insisted that in the show it was clear that “she wanted it” despite saying no and uh I haven’t seen the show at all or read the books (and I’ve been with my boyfriend for almost seven years and he’s not generally anywhere near that level of douche…) but I kind of wanted to throw up when he said that. I mean if it were clear in the show that she was interested people wouldn’t be commenting on how she was CLEARLY RAPED and that she was crying and shit I mean come on. His explanation for the change is that the author has taken the show as an opportunity to change a few little things that he wished he’d done differently but seriously why would you change consensual sex into rape I don’t understand why you would literally fuck over your female characters (and your male characters by turning them into RAPISTS) like that and also why is my boyfriend not bothered by rape as a plot device when it was clearly not needed because it wasn’t in the original plot which as I understand it is not drastically different WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE DEFENDING THIS?!

Today we surprised my brother Jimmy with a big party for his 30th birthday (which is on Thursday).

This is the picture we used for his thank-you note on Facebook tonight.
Guests were told not to bring gifts, but they could give him $5 for a future trip to Atlantic City (he loves to play the slots). He got a few gifts from people who insisted on it or who didn’t want to support gambling.

I have recently come to the realization that I don’t appreciate the existence of Easter as a secular holiday.

That movie was pretty intense for two 95-year-olds trying to kill each other.
