The Ordinary Adventures of Laurel


Hey there. :) In this blog, I will use emoticons even when trying to maintain a professional serious attitude. You guys need to go ahead and accept that. :P
^See, there I go.

I'm a college student from sunny Florida! I'm finishing up my AA in the next couple of semesters(with any luck!) then starting the training process to become a doula. I love babies, as should be evident by the hundreds of baby pictures I reblog.

Hopefully, I'll one day be able to post pictures of my own babies...if I'm still using Tumblr when I'm old...
Who am I kidding, of course I'll still be using Tumblr when I'm old!

I'm avidly pro-life, so be prepared to be for all that may entail when choosing to follow or unfollow.

I'm a cat person.
I have a ton of food allergies.
I love reading.
I like Dr. Who.
Edward Monkton is a wonderful person and one of my heroes. If you look him up and don't fall in love with him, I'll send you a personal cyber hug and/or look of contempt.
My boyfriend's name is Jared, and he is even more wonderful that Edward Monkton. I'll try to keep the mushiness to a minimum.
I'm simplistic.
I'm somewhere in the spectrum between Catholic and Agnostic.
Insult any religion around me(with the exception of the Westboro Baptist Church) and you will surely earn a grudge so cold you might be at risk of hypothermia.
I'm very tired as I write this.
I have a Schnoodle named Chowder. My parents chose the name. I wanted to name her Toby. Or Chester, since all of the dogs my family has ever owned had names begnning in "Ch".
I am a cupcake baker. I have come up with new recipies in my dreams. I'm not kidding.
I'm delving into feminism. Yes, I am still pro-life. I will be glad to explain why those two go together.
I hate peas.
I love chocolate.
I enjoy people-watching.
I neither love nor hate hipsters. I only bring that up because it seems like everyone has to have at least some opinion of them. Nobody can just not mention them at least once.
I love puns.
I laught at my own jokes.
I laugh at my own puns.
Goodbye.

Who wants to know, eh?

I am the girl that ‘got hot’ after highschool.

It’s not because I lost the weight or finally figured out that clothes were for more than covering my skin. It’s not because I realized I had breasts or because I grew into my face and grew out my hair. It’s not because I stopped trying to hide my height, and I definitely didn’t just randomly develop social skills.

The reason I ‘got hot’ after highschool is because there was no one telling me I wasn’t.

Fluff rice with a fork, never stir it with a spoon.

Applying eyeliner well is a timeless art.
You can always leave. Awkward dates, suffocating jobs, hometowns that you outgrow, relationships that aren’t growing in the right direction.
You can always come home again.
But it won’t be the same.
Life is too short for bad books, boring movies, shitty people, and margarine.
Never underestimate the importance of eyebrows.

Here is the anatomy of my weekend:

Friday night: Talk to Jared on the phone and decide he is about 24 hours away from a massive stroke from the stress of his living situation.

Saturday: Pack the dog up and drive to Tampa so I can help Jared move out.

Saturday night: Arrive in Tampa, pick Jared up from work so he won’t have to walk home, drive him to his old apartment to get some essentials. Get him over to his new place.

Late Saturday night: Help him and his two housemates move in. Stay up until 4am talking, laughing, goofing off. Squeeze both of us on a twin air mattress and catch a few hours of sleep.

Sunday morning: Wake up, tend to the dog’s needs, and take Jared to work.

Sunday afternoon: Drive home, pull in to the driveway just in time for a phonecall from Jared saying that he left his key to the new place in my car.

Lather.

Rinse.

Repeat.

rambles-of-a-fangirl:

Steven Moffat has said that calling Peter Capaldi’s incarnation the ‘Twelfth Doctor’ is wrong.

Speaking in SFX magazine #251, Moffat said: “I’m just going to throw this continuity grenade back at Doctor Who fans and say, ‘You are all wrong!’ He has never called himself the anything-th Doctor in the show.

“If the Doctor was a real person and walked in here, and you said, ‘Which incarnation are you?’ he’d have to think, just as you’d have to think about how many houses you’ve lived in. He never thinks of himself as a numbered Doctor. The Twelfth Doctor means the twelfth actor to have played the lead in Doctor Who. That’s all it means. There is no such character as the Twelfth Doctor and never has been.

It’s a long time into the show before any such nonsense ever comes up. It’s purely us lot, us fans, wittering on about calling him the Third or the Fourth Doctor – which is actually quite an unpleasant thing to do. It doesn’t feel right at all when you type that. I had to do that for the [50th Anniversary] special. It was the Tenth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, and it felt like a betrayal, in a way. But what else could you do?

“Out of curiosity, I looked at what they did in ‘The Five Doctors’. They didn’t number them at all. Do you know what they called them? The Hartnell Doctor, the Pertwee Doctor…” x

From “The Lodger”:

(The Doctor head butts Craig.)
CRAIG: Argh.
(There is a very rapid montage.)
CRAIG: Oh.
DOCTOR: Ow.
CRAIG: You’re a
DOCTOR: Yes.
CRAIG: From
DOCTOR: Shush.
CRAIG: You’ve got a Tardis.
DOCTOR: Yes. Shush. Eleventh. Right. Okay, specific detail.

Admittedly not written by Moffat but IN HIS SEASONS, so you’d think he’d remember it.

Actually, even better, HE LEGIT REFERRED TO HIMSELF BY NUMBERS IN THE MOST RECENT EPISODE,when he’s explaining to Clara why he can’t regenerate and bullshits: Well, number ten once regenerated and kept the same face. I had vanity issues at the time.”

From The Five Doctors, where Davison and Hartnell (well, Hurndall)’s Doctors first meet:

SUSAN: Is he really-?
DOCTOR 1: Me? Yes. Yes, I’m afraid so. Regeneration? 
DOCTOR 5: Fourth. 
DOCTOR 1: Goodness me! So, there are five of me now!

Didn’t look very hard, did ya pal

A child is born.
Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson spent 12 years of his life taking pictures of the foetus developing in the womb. These incredible photographs were taken with conventional cameras with macro lenses, an endoscope and scanning electron microscope. Nilsson used a magnification of hundreds of thousands and “worked” right in the womb.
He published is work as a book, A child is born, in 1965 and it consists of photographs charting the development of the human embryo and fetus from conception to birth. Photographs are accompanied by text, written by doctors, describing prenatal development and offering advice on antenatal care.
This picture shows a foetus of 16 weeks. The skeleton consists mainly of flexible cartridge and a network of blood vessels is visible through the thin skin.
