Also, I have a family story that is tangentially related– My grandmother and her sisters had borrowed their parents’ car to go out for a night of drinking, as they often did. A snow storm kicked up while they were out, and on their way home, the car got stuck in a thick patch of snow that had collected on the road. The girls were able to get the car most of the way unstuck, but not QUITE clear. Searching for something to give the car enough traction, they used the only thing they could find: the ashes of their recently deceased uncle, which were still in an urn in the car’s trunk.
and that’s how i was taught to carry a bag of kitty litter in the trunk during the winter!

being that it was a made-for-TV movie, they had to settle for morally ambiguous golemancy instead

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Sauce at Taco Bell Afterwards
my parents have a cat and corgi duo that pulls something like this. if nobody is around, the cat will sometimes jump up on the counter and toss food scraps from the compost tin down to his stubby lil buddy. he also once knocked a nest of baby robins out of a tree so that he and the corgi could nosh them down together (wahhhh… but also kind of morbidly cute).
i like that cat, so i’m glad that when our dog overlords come to power they will probably spare him for his usefulness.

so, american horror story:
i just don’t know how these girls are going to get any of their important studies done when we’ve already got zombie boyfriend, unholy baby, immortal racist, swamp witch, and voodoo versus magic story lines on our plate. why even call it a school? why not a do-whatever-you-want-all-day-no-supervision-house? because that’s CLEARLY what it is
this season is already too far off the rails! and some of the best parts of season 2 + witches + new orleans left me with such high hopes. at least it’s pretty?
(p.s. we can talk about this show here because it’s basically a comedy, right? whatever kelly you don’t make the rules you’re not the boss of me)
i have to say, this movie appealed to me a little bit. like, if this selection of trailers was a sample platter from which i was to pick a movie to watch immediately, i would definitely give Zero Charisma a considering nod (but i’d ultimately pick Nebraska, no duh).
and the scene that sold me rings true because of my (few) personal Dungeons and Dragons experiences — basically the moment when the outsider reacts to a game scenario as a normal human being would.
okay, so, i have a group of friends, one of which i was living with at the time, who play DND regularly. because i am SOME type of nerd, and generally curious, it was basically foregone that i would join them for a “campaign”. i couldn’t be bothered to learn most of the rules, but otherwise dove right in (and plus, they were totally cool with me playing while drinking. i recommend it!).
but here’s the thing — the way i wanted to approach the world was fundamentally different from the way they all did. in any given scenario, i, as my character, would react as a REAL PERSON would. the rest of the group (“party”), however, would willingly slip into any sort of fantasy trope that appeared. there’s a camp of gnolls on our path ahead? why don’t we just detour around? NOPE, GOTTA SLAUGHTER ‘EM ALL. there are rumours of a rogue peddling a “magic stone” around town? he’s probably a con-man, fuck it. NOPE, WE GOTTA GO INVESTIGATE AND BUY THAT THING.
and really, that’s all fine. different people want to play in different ways. i was never told that i was “playing wrong”, but it was clear our styles weren’t jiving. (ps. we’re still all friends, i just haven’t played DND since)
so Kelly, like, if you want, we could go see it. oh no, don’t worry, we can definitely poke holes in the problematic cliches and the constant pandering, too. and anyway, you owe me for This Is Us.
