8tracks is Radio, rediscovered - Sonnets read by David Tennant. (11min) by catstiels| A various selection of William Shakespeare’s sonnets read by David Tennant.
Before this catches on with miserable adult babies reblogging to only add “KILL IT WITH FIRE” or some other idiotic, unfunny meme:
This is a mature female spider of the Nephila genus. I’m not sure the exact species, but members of this genus are also known as “golden silk orb weavers.” Their yellow-orange silk can be used to make golden cloth, like in this tapestry.
The bite of a Nephila isn’t serious. Wikipedia describes the worst case scenario - localized pain or a more severe allergic reaction - but most bitten will only experience a little itching. Like any spider, they only bite in self defense or when forcibly pressed against skin, and these big females are especially docile. I’ve held a related species on two occasions, they don’t scare very easily.
They’re so laid back, in fact, and so insistent on remaining in the same web, that these are the spiders some cultures have used as mosquito guards, deliberately setting them up to spin webs in open windows or over the top of a baby’s crib.
You can trust spiders with babies. Don’t be an asshat about your phobia plz. (By which I mean it’s perfectly okay to have a phobia and be afraid, but you don’t need to hate all spiders and wish they were all dead they didn’t do anything but get born spiders)
I’ve been working the last few years to get over my intense fear of spiders and it’s not easy but reading stuff like this is just wonderful!
Last night I got up at 3 am to feed my cat. So I picked him up, noticed he was purring loudly, and thought in all seriousness:
"Very cat. Much purrs."
…then realized I may or may not spend too much time on this fucking website.
As your husband I feel I should inform you that you said that out loud.
OH MY GOD THAT’S EVEN WORSE
I just want to say that it was a total honor and a real pleasure to meet so many of my Tumblr friends at Chicago TARDIS. I had so much fun. Thanks, Clann.
skoyeraktigsova asked: Dude since when did your hair take a vacation?! What's that outfit you got on with McGann? Also you look great in both of those pictures. It's the smile :D
I shaved it off after my Nine cosplay Friday night to do Saturday as the Ferutu that Doctor Ry drew for me. I managed to get to the con without my black dress though, so I ended up just wearing normal clothes and having the runes on my head.
