The Lizzie Bennet Diaries 5 Year Anniversary Snobby Mr. Douchey – Ep: 6  (April 26th 2012)

Darcy’s boring, stuffy, unbelievably rude. He thinks he’s too good for us “common folk.” But he’s handsome! And rich! Even richer than Bing Lee!

@marykatewiles : actually the sweetest human. Why would you fight? You monster…
@seanpersaud : fight alone and while not in character as E. Poe. Avoid ravens.
@sineadpersaud : sure, why not? Only a 99.99% you’ll end up in a full body cast, but your choice.
Hartgracesarah: you’d be best off having her on your side
@unacaritafeliz : can kill you with sarcasm alone if she tried. Math nerd. You can fight and probably win but beware her knowledge of mathematics to gain a playing advantage over you. Also an Aussie.
@tawnypixie : does all the production things. Of everyone in this list, you really don’t wanna fight her.
@orangepenguino : also a production side person. Often teams up with tawnypixie in which case you should run
@microbrien : just don’t fight; this dude just wants to chill haven’t seen him around lately though…
@erinwert : is a nurse. can kill you and literally no one would know. You’ll win the battle but not the war.
@lies : really?

I’m not sure I’m worthy enough to be on here, but I’m guaranteed the easiest person to fight. Like I say “fight me” a lot but, like, you’d definitely win if you did.

You should def. fight me. You’ll win every time.

I have been in exactly one physical fistfight (where I was arguably the instigator, and fought back when punches started flying). It was in 1976. My opponent was a 7th grader named Rob; I was the lofty 8th grader. We were playing flag football at P.E. and I was blocking him (or he was blocking me; don’t remember) and we just kept going and escalated after the play ended.

For the record: I immediately lost.

If John and I fight each other we have would probably both lose, somehow.

I think the fight would instantly devolve into mutual compliments, tea, and cookies. In which case we could both claim to have lost, but honestly, we’d both know we’d actually won.

I think we should fight.

Heh. Under the code duello, I believe all further communications should be between our seconds.

astranemus:

Mowing with a scythe shuts down the jabbering brain for a little while, or at least the rational part of it, leaving only the primitive part, the intuitive reptile consciousness, working fully. Using a scythe properly is a meditation: your body in tune with the tool, your tool in tune with the land. You concentrate without thinking, you follow the lay of the ground with the face of your blade, you are aware of the keenness of its edge, you can hear the birds, see things moving through the grass ahead of you. Everything is connected to everything else, and if it isn’t, it doesn’t work. Your blade tip jams into the ground, you blunt the edge on a molehill you didn’t notice, you pull a muscle in your back, you slice your finger as you’re honing. Focus—relaxed focus—is the key to mowing well. Tolstoy, who obviously wrote from experience, explained it in Anna Karenina:

The longer Levin went on mowing, the oftener he experienced those moments of oblivion when his arms no longer seemed to swing the scythe, but the scythe itself his whole body, so conscious and full of life; and as if by magic, regularly and definitely without a thought being given to it, the work accomplished itself of its own accord. These were blessed moments.

I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.

I am too excited by the babies coming to sit on these. Look at these brand new precious butterfly babies. All these photos were taken TODAY.

More baby pictures! Top photo was last night (April 25th) before I went to bed, bottom photo was this morning (April 26) before I left for work. Didn’t bring the babies with me because I have a long day and I don’t think I can bring a mason jar full of larvae into a concert with me, so I made sure to fill the jar with fresh hackberry leaves because BABIES ARE HUNGRY!!!

“This morning I have been pondering a nearly forgotten lesson I learned in high school music. Sometimes in band or choir, music requires players or singers to hold a note longer than they actually can hold a note. In those cases, we were taught to mindfully stagger when we took a breath so the sound appeared uninterrupted. Everyone got to breathe, and the music stayed strong and vibrant. Yesterday, I read an article that suggested the administration’s litany of bad executive orders is a way of giving us “protest fatigue” – we will literally lose our will to continue the fight in the face of the onslaught of negative action. Let’s remember MUSIC. Take a breath. The rest of the chorus will sing. The rest of the band will play. Rejoin so others can breathe. Together, we can sustain a very long, beautiful song for a very, very long time. You don’t have to do it all, but you must add your voice to the song. With special love to all the musicians and music teachers in my life…..#Resist”

“Do not let me hear
Of the wisdom of old men, but rather of their folly,
Their fear of fear and frenzy, their fear of possession,
Of belonging to another, or to others, or to God.
The only wisdom we can hope to acquire
Is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless.”
