“It’s you, you rare unearthly thing.” - Edward Fairfax Rochester
OH MY GOD YES THANK YOU.
HEY ALL YOU DIPSHIT PARENTS THAT THINK GETTING YOUR KID A PUPPY FOR CHRISTMAS OR A BUNNY FOR EASTER WILL BE A GOOD IDEA.
GET YOUR KID A FUCKING STUFFED ANIMAL.
BECAUSE COMPANION ANIMALS ARE FOR LIFE, IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH, TILL DEATH DO THEY FUCKING PART.
pets are not toys. they’re companions. if you aren’t ready to treat them as such then you don’t deserve to have one.
SO GLAD THIS IS ON TUMBLR
I work at an animal shelter and hate when people give puppies as gifts. I had to wait 21 fucking years to get a puppy. Only then did my parents say okay because they knew me and my sister could actually take care of him. Trust me A 10 YEAR OLD CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A DOG! DO NOT FOOL YOURSELVES. My puppy had me crying for the first 3 months we had him because he was no much work.
Exactly! I just adopted a dog last month from a rescue, we think she’s a Shepherd/Lab mix, and her name is Elsa. My little girl is only a year and eight months old, and we figure that she’s had at least 8 homes since she was born. In the eight months the rescue had her (not counting her first year of life), she was in the rescue facility, two foster homes (one of which had an alpha female who picked on her), and three adoptive ‘homes.’ Now, Elsa is a wonderful dog — she’s loving to a fault, sweet, shy, stubborn, talkative, playful, caring, inquisitive, athletic, and scary smart — why was she returned three times by the other homes?
BECAUSE THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT ADOPTING A DOG ENTAILED. They didn’t think of the cost or they didn’t want to put her through proper training. They thought it would be some easy little thing and they all returned her, most likely in less than a month. I can only say SHAME ON THEM; Elsa experienced abuse before she came to the rescue, and then for her to be constantly shuttled back and forth from homes, she is near catatonic every time we take her for a car ride, terrified that we’re going to leave her somewhere.
At the very least, their loss is my incredible gain. I am so grateful to be able to give Elsa a loving forever home this Christmas when so many other sweet doggies and kitties have to go without. She is simply just a joy to be devoted to. Of course I encourage people to adopt pets rather than go to breeders (ALWAYS ADOPT!), but if you at all think that you cannot handle a pet, please wait! Think things through before you put these sweet creatures through so much.
OH MY GOD

Lecture en cours : La Religion
Un roman historique plutôt bien fait par un spécialiste du roman policier, l’Américain Tim Willocks. Il se situe en 1565 (Charles IX règne en France et l’année commence le 1er janvier ainsi qu’il en a décidé, pour la première fois de l’Histoire). Elle se déroule pendant le siège de Malte par les Ottomans au travers des aventures d’un ancien Janissaire devenu trafiquant (Mattias Tannhauser dont la description physique évoque l’auteur lui-même), mais qui abandonne ses affaires en Sicile et risque sa vie dans la bataille pour deux femmes exceptionnelles.
La narration se joue des lieux et de la chronologie pour nous faire explorer le monde Turc de Soliman le Magnifique et les enjeux politiques liés à l’Ordre des Hospitaliers de Saint Jean de Jérusalem, ou chevaliers de Malte, ou encore « la Religion ».
L’auteur décrit la violence des combats de l’époque de manière détaillée et très documentée. Il explore habilement des thématiques romanesques ambitieuses : la violence chez l’être humain, la politique et ses dynamiques sociales, ainsi que la force mystérieuse des sentiments affectifs amoureux, amicaux et familiaux.
Ce roman est le premier d’une trilogie consacrée au personnage de l’ancien Janissaire Mattias Tannhauser dont le second volet vient de sortir mais n’a pas encore été traduit en français.

D’autres avis ?
The Religion - literally one of the best, most beautiful books I have ever read in my entire life. My copy is nearly worn thin I’ve read it so many times.
Reputedly a scene was filmed where during the final battle Captain America saves an old man trying to protect his grandchildren. He tells him to ‘Get them to cover’ but as he walks away the old man asks him “Cap, is that really you?’. He turns and noting the man’s World War 2 veteran lapel pin trades salutes with him. As Captain America sprints away the children ask their grandfather ‘Do you know him?’ and he replies ‘We all know him’.
R.I.P Paul Walker. Lift your light up, a toast to life.
Heartbroken, absolutely heartbroken about this.
