my mother is a very melodramatic person in general
she always critiques everyone and everything and finds the tiniest things to argue over
and if she’s got a cold or something she has it worse than anyone else

so this morning, when she accidentally dropped a kettle of boiling water all over her thighs and she was shrieking non-stop, I barely even reacted

to be fair I hadn’t seen what happened but I just thought she was upset that her clothes were wet or she’d broken a glass jug

then it became apparent that she’d actually scalded herself quite seriously

and my little brother was very calm and caring towards her and I felt horribly unsympathetic

my brother called my dad and then the ambulance and he was very grown up and reassuring and found out what procedures to take when someone is burnt and I was still just clearing up broken glass and mopping the floor at a distance

and she was crying and moaning

but then she’d stop and very calmly ask me to get her a skirt and some clips and a handbag (all on separate occasions) because she couldn’t go to hospital looking like this and I was like ‘mum no one cares what you look like in hospital’ but I got it all anyway

and then she’d resume her crying and moaning

and then again she’d stop to take pictured of her lobster-red legs

and resume the crying

then the ambulace arrived and took her away and my brother went with them and I stayed at home

"Pure love for another person, and what people call romantic love, are two different things. Pure love doesn’t manipulate the relationship to one’s advantage, but romantic love is different. Romantic love contains other elements—the desire to be loved by the other person, for instance. If purely loving another was enough, you wouldn’t suffer because of unrequited love. As long as the other person was happy, there wouldn’t be any need to suffer because you weren’t being loved in return. What makes people suffer is the desire to be loved by another person. So I decided that romantic love and pure love for a person are not the same. And that by following this you could lessen the pain of unrequited love."

The Japanese city of Nara is renown for its deer. Thanks to their legendary history, they’re regarded as heavenly animals, messengers of the gods according to Shinto belief, and guardians of both the city and Japan itself. A population of over 1000 remarkably tame Sika Deer reside in Nara Park, where they roam freely and visitors may feed them special biscuits, and every summer they do something strange and awesome. They leave the park and swarm the streets, lounging together on the sidewalks and sometimes right in the road, looking like they haven’t got a care in the world and the middle of the road is the perfect place to be.

YouTube user Blue Bells 9999 shot video of this marvelous phenomenon in 2013 and describes it as a regular occurrence in late July:

"…with the deer strolling out of the park to “enjoy the coolness of the street.” Given that the concrete sidewalk and asphalt road surface would ordinarily retain heat during the summertime, we’re guessing that the surrounding cityscape and topography creates either a cooling wind tunnel or an inviting patch of shade.

Although it might seem like an alarming event, Nara residents seem very used to the presence of the deer. It’s been happening for so long now that the city posts warning signs to drivers about deer crossing the road. No one honks at them or suddenly swerves to avoid them. We’d be so amazed by the sight of them that people would be honking at us for blocking traffic ourselves.

These confused cats are the best response to ‘Women Against Feminism’ yet 

A new phenomenon in the Tumblr Wars has brought the claws out, literally and figuratively. 

In this latest example, satirical Tumblr “Confused Cats Against Feminism" is combining some of the Internet’s favorite things — cats and whimsy — in a hilariously effective takedown of its inspiration, "Women Against Feminism.” 

How these images prove we still need feminism

there was this one clothes store in hong kong that had really rad-looking clothes but i hated going inside because as soon as you stepped in all the sales assistants would pounce on you and wouldn’t let you go and even if you were like ‘i’m just browsing’ they’d still be all like ‘hi how can i help you what are you looking for oh this would look great on you why don’t you try this on it’s very in right now and it suits you you should try it i don’t tell everyone this seriously the colour looks great and it complements your style’ and it was TERRIFYING and they wouldn’t leave you alone

I dreamt I was talking to this guy and he didn’t know what ‘utopia’ meant and I was like “how do you know what ‘pogonophobia’ is but not ‘utopia’”
