I feel like Doctor Who is being really misleading. The trailer/promo makes it look like Twelve is going to be really dark yet the filming photos say something entirely different:
Beware of the spoon
The Doctor forgot how to hug
Yes very dark, very scary.
That last one though
Bloke I went to college with, he’s doing amazingly. And he thinks that I am a window cleaner! A window cleaner!
Here lately I’ve seen several posts about body image and how it’s portrayed in media and I can’t help but get angry and frustrated. I get that curvy and larger women have not had the representation in media that they want. I understand and agree fully that we should be putting real people on TV and not these “perfect” images that are more or less edited most of the time. But, it also pushes my buttons the way skinny girls are under attack by the same people who want “image equality.” I was a “skinny” girl for most of my life. In fact I never had curves until I got pregnant. Let me tell you skinny girls have image issues just as much as larger women. I was in ballet school and I was always self conscious. I wasn’t as small as some of the girls around me but then I also didn’t have any curves. I constantly compared the fact that I had no boobs (A cup, whoop!) and no butt to speak of to famous people and wondered what any guy would see in someone as flat as me. I didn’t feel pretty because that’s all guys and girls ever talked about. I might have been small but I still wasn’t the perfect girl. In fact I can tell you every imperfection about myself: I have a slightly bigger nose. One eye squints when I smile and my smile itself pulls to the right. I have a curve in my spine which makes my right hip go higher than my left and I swear I have a hunch in my back that will never go away. I think my arms and legs are flabby. I’m small up top and small in the bottom. I still have a stockier form even though I have longer legs. Etc. Also, now that I’m prego I kind of feel like a turtle. My point is, this is how God made me. It’s taken me years and a very supportive husband who thinks I’m pretty damn sexy for me to feel like I finally don’t need to change a thing. So next time your championing the curvier girls don’t forget to give us small girls some love too. Because we’re all beautiful and in need of supporting each other. Ripping into each other to build yourself up is not the answer. There is no wrong or right body type because we all see things in ourselves as imperfections and we sure aren’t helping each other by pointing them out to make ourselves feel better. So screw the stereo types and can’t we all just get along! Because lets face it we are all going to get older, things are going to sag and change, and then we’re all stuck in the same boat anyways. Unless you can afford plastic surgery. Then kudos to you and you can go suck it.

Ninja Update: Wanna see something fun? Mention Shakespeare in a sentence and see what happens.
Poe kept writing distinctly into my sentences so I wrote ”Edgar, you’re not funny” aND HE BLATANTLY DELETED THE NOT I AM SO DONE WITH THIS ASDFKJL
OH GOD IF YOU TYPE “EDGAR ALLAN POE” POE ADDS A :( AFTER HIS NAME PRECIOUS BABY
Oh my God so I typed ‘Shakespeare’ and Shakespeare butted in and wrote ‘The lovely and handsome Shakespeare’ but Poe burst in saying ‘The dreadful and lonely Shakespeare’.
aND FYODOR DOSTOYVESKY ADDED ‘ I do not wish to make myself a laughing-stock before these idle listeners.”
Look what they did to All Star by Smash Mouth
“Somebody once hushedly told me the world is going to roll me. I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed. She was looking kind of glocky with her finger and her thumb in the shape of a “L” on her forehead. Well, the years start voraciously coming and they don’t stop coming; fed to the rules and I hit the ground running. It didn’t make sense absolutely to live for fun. Thy brain gets smart but your head gets dumb. So much to do, so much to behold. So what’s wrong with taking the back busy thoroughfares? In everything one thing is impossible: rationality. You’ll never know if thou don’t go. “You’ll never shine if you don’t glow”, he growled incoherently. Hey presently, you’re an All Star. Get your game on; go play. Hey now, you’re a Rock Star. Get the show on; get laid. As well as all that glitters is gold, only shooting stars break the mold. ~All Star by Smash Estuary of opinion…”
Imagine putting your research paper in here and letting them go at it.
OH MY GOD I WAS WRITING AND EDGAR WOULDN’T STOP FIXING THINGS SO I WROTE “Edgar shut up I’m trying to write” and he changed it to “Edgar shut up I’m meagerly attempting to write” THIS FUCKING ASSHOLE
I typed in “Hello” and Shakesphere erased it and wrote “Begone with this rubbish.”
I typed “party in the Usa” and Poe changed party to “ill-fated gathering”
I just used it to yell at Dickens about Tale of Two Cities, I am happy now
I typed in ‘hello other writers’ and Edgar Allen Poe changed it to ‘Hello secondary writers’
After I had been writing for a while Edgar suddenly deleted my last sentence and wrote “THE END.” rude son of a bitch

We’re putting down flooring in my room and my parents let me spray paint a devil’s trap on the floor!
One day someone will buy your house and see this and you will have damaged them for life.
One day someone will walk through that door and not be able to walk anymore.
