Play it Good and Right

We Get Questions!   Patrick, 28.
Welcome to my tumblr, where I nerd out on: movies, tv, politics, equality, Joss Whedon, comedy, words, Nerdfighteria, Taylor Swift, and so much more. Thanks for visiting!

An Idea

seekinguncertainty:

My church celebrates the Eucharist on the first Sunday of each month.

We also have a food collection the first Sunday of each month.

Seeing as how the early church conceived of Eucharist as a justice moment that fed the poor in the community, perhaps having people bring their donations forward to a basket as they come forward for communion would make that connection, bring justice back to the Eucharist, and encourage more donations, since the donation would be part of the ritual and not just something to put in a box in the Narthex on your way into church.

In fact, I think I might email my minister about this.

I really like this idea, like lots.

For some reason I thought searching the United Church of Christ tag would be a good idea. Now I’m crying, so… oops.

We went over this in Semantics
I have been perpetually angry ever since

no double standards there, nope, no blatant misogyny/woman shaming here, nuh uh, none at all.

This seems like a good exercise for OWL classes…

This is important and shitty. 

but… “vamp”? That’s gonna be my go-to from now on.

so sometimes i think about harry potter being in the aurors and like

he’d never really thought about child protective services, muggle or otherwise, cause it’d never been relevant, right? like when he was a miserable kid he just thought that was what it was like being an orphan. but then he sees cases come through the department where parents are murdered and there’s kids sitting in their waiting room with copies of the quibbler and water waiting while an auror sits down with a family tree and tries to find whatever relatives this kid might have in the wizarding world, going back maybe even five generations to find anyone living and vaguely related to this child to drop them off with

and he goes to shit apartments in diagon alley after noise complaints and finds children who are black and blue with hexed, bleeding skin who insist they were just playing with a weasley’s wizard wheeze, no really mr. potter

and he thinks about how merope gaunt stumbled into a muggle orphanage and left them a child who would grow up learning fear was the key to harmony, and becoming a god meant safety

and really, how was the headmaster of a school the person who made the call about where he ended up, how was the system so haphazard that a man who wouldn’t be part of his life for another ten years got to make the biggest decision of his life

harry thinks about his cupboard

and then harry potter sits down with hermione and ron and neville (cause of course neville would want a stake in this) and says, “we need to change the wizarding world again.”

and they do.

No, that’s fine. I’m not crying.

No. She’s not.

Rewatching seasons 5 is so much more powerful than the first time. It’s…. really powerful, and not just “ew Dawn ew” like I thought originally.

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

It’s too early in the day to be crying like this.
