I'm Katie. I exist. Probably at least. Feel free to contact me whenever.

 

so I understand my stepfather’s concern about mixed drinks and alcohol poisoning. But he’s basically scared me away from drinking (like I feel a really deep guilt and fear whenever I drink) and he’s also scared me away from ever talking to him about drinking.

One less person to talk to if I ever end up having an alcohol related problem.

I have been taking Harry Potter quizzes again and I guess I am now a Gryffindor???

So the sequence over the last few years has been Slytherin -> Hufflepuff ->Gryffindor

Peggy getting slowly more annoyed by the Americans she is surrounded by and their collective inability to use the letter U.

Steve writing her notes in which he adds a U after every O. Even the ones where there is already a U:

Dear Agent Carter,

Peggy retaliating by writing him notes without the letter U at all:

Dear Captain Rogers

the speech impediment of the 21st century (by Marc Johns)

I’ll fuck you up buddy this is not a speech impediment it’s linguistic evolution!! the existence of the phrase “Aisha was like” allows the speaker to convey whatever Aisha said without making the listener assume they’re quoting Aisha directly while still maintaining the FEELING of what Aisha said.
ie, Aisha said she didn’t want to go out with me VERSUS Aisha was like, “I’d rather kiss a Wookie”.
the addition of “XYZ was like” lets the speaker be more expressive and efficient and it is a totally valid method of communicating information!!

With the way language has evolved, this is one of the few ways I can even think of to express in casual conversation what someone said. 
"So I said to Aisha," is certainly used, but if you remove the "so," which implies casual tone ("and" can be used in the same way), you get
"I said to Aisha," which is really formal in most English dialects/variations. I don’t know about all, but in New England dialects, you sound like you’re reading aloud from a novel.
"I told Aisha," is really only used when you continue to describe, not tell, what you told her. Ex: "I told Aisha that James was too punk for her" works while, "I told Aisha, ‘James is too punk for you’" crosses the line back into formalness of the "I said."
Things like “I asked” or “I answered [with]” are similar levels of casual and efficient to the “So, I said [or say, as many conversations about the past take place in present tense anyway, as if the speaker is giving a play-by-play in the moment]” but are specific to only certain situations. 
"I was like, 'Marc Johns, what is your obsession with restoring archaic speech patterns and interfering with the natural progression of English from complex to efficient?'" envelopes all of these easily and is accessible and crisp, and allows for more variations on inflection than the others.
Of course, James is probably like, “I already fucking said that.” But eh, I tried adding on.

you: hey isozyme, what do you want most in this world?

So my housemate’s boyfriend is here all the time even though he lives less than 5 min away. They cook here, shower here, and he does laundry here (I’m actually shocked he doesn’t have a key). My roommate has offered to pay $10 more for electricity but nothing extra for water.

Today he was cleaning and was working on our tuperware cabinet and told one of our other housemates that he didn’t think that my best friend or I ever cleaned that cabinet (we have). Plus he threw out a bunch of my friend’s containers.

He’s been cleaning a lot recently and just in general being in the way and I’m like “it’s not your house”
