Hey Tumblr!

I am in a bit of a quandry and need your help.

On April 5th, my landlady informed me that I need to move out asap as she is selling the house.

I had just found one that fits most of my criteria (size, location, access to transit, the space for…

Wait, did your landlady give you 30 days notice to move out or did she give you less time than that?

I don’t know what the laws in Canada are, but I thought they had the 30 days notice rule. Also, is it a month-to-month lease or was it for a set period of time? 

In the US you can’t force a person to move out unless you get a court order. Even if they haven’t paid rent there have to be certain eviction procedures.

I really hope that you can find a place that will take two cats. Have you tried asking at the place that you are thinking of moving to and asked if they could make an exception? Explain that you are being ejected on short notice.

I don’t know if I would be able to give up any of my cats to move in to a place, but I know it may be necessary. I hope that you can either get an exception made or find another place that will allow 2 cats.

I had to give up cats to move before (the so-called “quarantine” in the new place would have killed them and we were being forced to move- but we were told they would be easily adopted since they were already spayed and neutered).

Good luck!

if i had a dollar for each time someone said “you’ll change your mind about having kids” i’d have enough money to buy the government and make kids illegal

Oh, I used to constantly get the “You’ll be the first one married and have kids” and the “its different when they’re your own”.

I can only tolerate children in small doses. I have a friend with a 4-year-old step son who is the poster child for abortion. Sometimes he can be so sweet, but he can be so annoying I want to choke the shit out of him.

I have cats. When I don’t want them to bother me I can put them out of the room. It doesn’t traumatize them. I could never deal with kids longterm. I just don’t have the patience for it.

We Can’t Get Out Of The Bedroom Now.

Shirley Maclaine on Parkinson in 1975

It was forty years ago. Still in the bedroom, aren’t we?

Sometimes when I see old films from the 20s and 30s I’m actually surprised at how western society has actually regressed in some ways and stagnated in others.

I watched this 4 minute video about how reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone park literally changed everything about the park and just sat there for another two minutes, mouth open and teary eyed and amazed. Definitely worth a watch. 

it’s amazing how the earth itself changed in response to wildlife…

That is pretty damn cool.

i wonder if anyone has ever peed in the olympic pool

They talked about this. The answer is yes. A lot of the swimmers had to pee once they got in the pool.

I relate to the second gif.

Always hated group projects. I was the only one who did the work.

Also, I saw part of that episode in the first gif. I kept thinking of “supreme” as either the Supremes or of food from Taco Bell with sour cream.

I hate like burning that ‘shop of RDJ and Chris Evans, because they ‘shopped out his actual wife to make it. If you’re writing RPF fic in which Hemsworth’s actual pregnant wife does not exist so you can…

Oh man.. the fictionalization of real people really annoys the hell out of me. I admit that fanfictions about real people (unless they are just complete jokes) make me very uncomfortable. It’s one thing to fantasize about someone, it’s another to treat them as if they are fictional characters that can be toyed with.

I think there is a problem where the line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and some people lose the ability to differentiate celebrities from fictional characters. It makes them feel more justified in treating the celebrities as pieces of meat instead of real human beings. 

There is also this sense with some people where they feel like its ok for them to try to decide what is right for a celebrity— who they should hang out with, what they should eat, who they should date/marry, etc. I’ve encountered some people who actually get angry at celebrities who do things their own way instead of the way the people want them to (because they have planned that person’s life in their fanfictions and/or in their own imaginations).

It’s one thing to look up to someone or like them and then be disappointed when they go and do something really stupid (like pissing on a teenage girl, beating up a girlfriend, or just saying something really hateful), but its another to think that the celebrity is in any way beholden to the fan and should have to change their wants/desires/behavior just because a single fan or group of fans want it that way.

Some people actually start to hate a celebrity because of their dating choices. That is sad to me.

Anyway, I got way off topic.
