Posting this now, since, you know, tomorrow will be filled with drinking and socialising and making sweet things and general merriment and because I might be able to talk to any of you between now and then. So yeahhh, here we go;
2011 has surprisingly been a pretty damn good year all in all.
I’ve met some of the most amazing people, been to bitchin’ gigs, I’ve kicked ass regarding my uni work, learnt general life lessons, grown as an individual, went to and survived another Download, met a bunch of cool famous people, took part in the Greatest Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen (and randomly fucking won it jafdsajgfvbsdugfai), turned 20 and as such stepped out of my teenage years and so much more.
It’s definitely been a great year…
To everyone who follows me;
Whether I’ve known you for years, months or days,
Whether I talk to you on a daily basis, every now and again or have barely spoken a word to you
I love each and every one of you and I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve and Day, and I hope 2012 is everything you want it to be and more.
Finally watched the latest episode of Supernatural (episode 10).
I’ve been putting it off for this long because the hellatus is nearly over and because I knew what was going to happen in the episode. And I knew I wasn’t emotionally strong enough to watch it.
I was sobbing and weeping for the entirety of the episode, because, well…
I’m really hoping that, by some miracle, he’ll live. But, the bullet had done some type of damage to the part of his brain that works his legs, so he has to be in a wheelchair again, and then Crowley can see him and make snarky comments.

>pick Nikki up and go into mums bedroom
>don’t notice Zeb is in there until a few steps into the room
>take a step forward, Nikki still in hand
>Zeb stops growling

well and to be fair
Mulan was never a princess.
Even when she married uh.. What’s-his-name he was just a general’s son and she was a retired generals daughter so still very VERY far from princess.
Pocahontas wasn’t really a princess either since depending on her tribe the title of Chieftain is earned not given via bloodline so upon marriage or her fathers death she would have lost what small status she had as his daughter.
Just to throw that out there.
It was just the fact they were attempting to argue that Disney isn’t raciest, but then they went and used an incorrect and kinda raciest way of describing Pocahontas.
Also? I didn’t know that, but then again, I wont lie, I don’t know much about native American tribes and the like. But that’s interesting and it’s a wonderful Disney Nugget of Knowledge I’m going to retain and spew at people every now and again, thank you.

We, as a team and one of the individual winners (Sarah, you are also more than welcome to join! :) Just pm me your email address and we will add you), are currently in the very early brainstorming stages for the Rome trip and what funny things we could do there. Jenny (o0jayejaye0o here on Tumblr) had the amazing idea to actually create an item list again of things that we have to do (or try to at least) in Rome that we then later will share with you guys. This also means that instead of “boring” pictures we will have a bunch of great pictures and videos with individual and unique ideas for this trip.
This is where we need your help. Would you like to add an (or several) idea to the pool of inofficial scavengerhunt items that Team 83 and the individual winners have to fulfil while in Rome? Ideally it has something to do with Gishwhes, with us as a team, with Rome or is just plain funny. Remember that it has to be achievable. It can be difficult but can’t be too time consuming and it shouldn’t get us in trouble with the Italian authorities.
Examples that we have so far:
“Take a picture of all winners in front of the Colosseum wearing sock monkey hats and fake moustaches”
“Spell the word GISHWHES with the winners’ bodies on the Spanish Steps”
Something along those lines Gishwhes style. It can also have something to do with Misha but remember that we don’t want to make him our human puppet.
As far as I understood we limited to videos and pictures only. Like I said, this is only an idea so far but we’d love your input on this.
