Yesterday my friend and I were walking out of Forever 21 and the wind blew my skirt up a little. I had shorts on underneath (for this very reason) but two guys in a parked car saw it happen and yelled at me to lift it more, I yelled back, “fuck you!” and they laughed. So I took my pocket knife out of my bag and said, “I will slash your fucking tires” and they did not laugh
Every language has its own version of um. French has euh, Korean eum, Finnish öö, Russian eh; even sign languages have signs for um. The fact that most languages have some kind of um suggests that it serves a natural and important language function.
So what is this important language function? Why do people say um? Not because they are nervous. Scholarly studies of the word reveal that the use of um does not correlate with anxiousness or any particular personality traits. Rather, um is used to signal an upcoming pause—usually uh for a short pause and um for a longer pause. The pause may be needed in order to find the right word, remember something temporarily forgotten, or repair a mistake. Um holds the floor for us while we do our mental work. It buys some time for thinking.
i need folks to chill about these ums. when i was in elementary school i said um so much that my teacher would make me stand in front of the classroom and talk for as long as i could without saying um and then when i did she would make me start over. and it was embarrassing as shit to have to do that in front of all of the other school kids.(via tranqualizer)
A little a lot rusty. Oh well working on it :p
- monosexual tumblr user: lol sapphobia is bullshit, it doesn't exist.
- monosexual tumblr user: because I said so.
- bisexual tumblr user: i disagree. think sapphobia is a useful term that describes the intersection of oppressions I experience as a bisexual woman really well.
- monosexual tumblr user: SHUT UP! I said sapphobia is not a thing!
- monosexual tumblr user: I never speak for or over bisexuals
The Penguin Foundation has a global call out for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
If you enjoy knitting as a pass time please please please do this. please.
You can download a PDF with more info here
signal boost this year again :D
