VIVA LA PLUTO FUCK YOU
I’m pretty sure “Viva la Pluto fuck you” is the best sentence I’ve heard all week.

This is a doodle. Of a thing. With a cup of tea. I made it with Painter some ages ago. You now know as much as I do.

OKAY INTO IT

All of this.
I don’t understand the stress on being “politically correct” when some people don’t like saying “Happy Holidays. I also don’t understand the anger some people feel when they’re told or the wrong holiday. I say “holidays” myself and I’m a Christian and I don’t expect people to say “Merry Christmas” to me. Hell, I’d find it really cool if someone said “Happy Hannukah” or “Joyous Kwanzaa” to me actually.
The whole point of wishing someone a happy holiday season is to, you know, show them you care. And what better way to do that than to acknowledge what they celebrate, or to appreciate their effort to give you their blessing to have a kickass December and party all night?
It’s not about anger. It’s about normalization.
Here’s the thing about saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone, including complete strangers: it’s rude. I don’t care if you are Christian and celebrate Christmas, that’s great, you do you. But when you make that your default greeting to strangers, what we non- Christians hear is, “Hey, if your religion isn’t identical to mine, I don’t give a fuck about it! I have no idea who you are and what you celebrate, and I don’t care, because my holiday is the important one and if you don’t celebrate it you must be weird.’
Now of course I know that’s not what people mean, and I don’t get mad at individuals who say ‘Merry Christmas’ to me. It is, as people point out, meant as a nice gesture, and I can accept it in the spirit it was intended — the first 99,999 times.
By the 100,000th time, the underlying assumption that Christianity is the default normal in America starts to piss me off.
Just say ‘Happy Holidays’. It’s considerate of others, no matter who they may be or where they may come from. And isn’t that what you wanted to express with that greeting? That you care?
Just a quick question - do you celebrate Christmas? You know, December 25th? Do you do anything special on that day? Get presents or something?
No. My whole family on both sides is Jewish. When we’re together we go to the movies sometimes because there’s not much else to do, but this year I’m in a different city so I’ll just be working like on an ordinary day.
Well then, have a good Chanukah. And I’ll have a merry Christmas. And hopefully we’ll both have a happy holiday season. End of story.
I completely agree. Cheers and a lovely December to you as well.

True story: apparently my parents had to explain sex to me after I watched this movie at age 7 and asked how Rizzo could be pregnant without being married.
This scene is seriously the cutest thing ever.
#Remember when there was a non-human person who hadnt talked to anyone of her species in decades #And her only companion was the man she loved and who ignored her or bossed her around and was rude to her #And Martha met her and the Doctor and Jack were busy doing ‘important shit’ #But Martha was the one who took the time to chat with her #To learn more about her language and culture #Who befriended her #Encouraged her to open up and joked with her and made her laugh #And then because of that discovered what they needed to know BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE#remember that #Remember that time Martha Jones was better than you #God bless Martha Jones
