I post women's fashion and shopping ideas that I come across on my internet travels. Otherwise, I post things that suit my fancy - especially the Avengers, Tom Hiddleston, Matt Bomer, Lucy Liu, the Hunger Games, and adorable puppies and kitties. My new goal in life is to someday look as fabulous as Alicia Florrick on the Good Wife in my everyday life.

I used to answer vicarious shopping questions and other fashion questions - but those questions can now be submitted at my website at http://tcfkag.weebly.com .

 

Meet the Blogger

I never do these … but who am I to deny artielu anything?

Name:  [redacted]

Age:  30

Gender: Female

Selfie: Not gonna happen folks - my career as a lawyer makes keeping a professional internet presence extremely important. (And not to sound too much like your parents - but its never too EARLY to think about this - I’m not talking predators or something; I’m talking about your bosses, colleagues, or clients searching you.)

Favorites

Food: ALL THE FOOD. I studied abroad in Italy and travelled a great in Europe. I have also taken up cooking as a bit of a hobby since college. So food is my jam. But my three favorites are all pretty old-school, simple, comfort foods: spaghetti with meat sauce (or lasagna), Shepherd’s Pie, and bread pudding.
Drink: Vitamin Water Energy and lemonade. 
Book: This like picking a child - but in terms of number of readings, I’d have to go with the Arrows series by Mercedes Lackey.
Favorite Author: Mercedes Lackey, JK Rowling, Roald Dahl.
Song: That is hard to say - right now for songs stuck in my head I’d say Timber by Keisha but all time probably Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee or Take me for longing by Allison Krauss & Union Station Band, Our Love is Here to Stay by Louis Armstrong, and a bunch of others. 
Movies: Avengers, Pitch Perfect (for recent movies) and Usual Suspects, Goonies, Sliding Doors (if you haven’t seen it, see it NOW) and Love Actually (I know, I know - but whatever - it means Christmas to me.)
TV Show: Of all time - Veronica Mars (5eva bestest), Firefly, West Wing, and Friends. Currently on the air - Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, Sleepy Hollow, and Rookie Blues (I feel like I’m missing something but I don’t know what!)
Bands: Allison Krauss and the Union Station Band, Beatles, No Doubt, Destiny’s Child, the Roots, and the Dixie Chicks and some others….I’m old. Don’t judge.
Solo Artist: Adelle, Beyonce, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and the Dixie Chicks. Oh, and Mos Def, Dar Williams, and Ella Fitzgerald. Eclectic I know - I just like what I like.
Place: THIS IS HARD. Probably Siena, Italy because I studied there. But the Big Island, Asheville NC, and Vienna, Austria really compete.

School Subject: Political Theory.
Sport: Swimming
Male Actors: Matt Bomer, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and ALL the Avengers.
Female Actors: Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Lucy Liu and Natalie Dormer, Emma Watson, and Kristen Bell. Lots of others too.

Life

Best Friend: Her code name is Eli and she was my freshman roommate and is still my best friend today.
Siblings: Older brother by five years - he’s absurdly awesome and is so great to me.
Dream Job:  Attorney at the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, DC.
Political Ideology: Very liberal … fairly moderate compared to my undergrad and law school or Europe but quite liberal for the US spectrum.
Religion: Raised Roman Catholic and am still quite drawn to the tradition and pomp of it all - but I’m also quite disillusioned with the church as a whole. But I do attend a fantastic liberal catholic church where I live, but only periodically.
Tattoos: no. Not only would my mother murder me (regardless of my age) but I also worry about infection risk.
Piercings: None - I’ve gotten my ears pierced a few times but they’ve gotten horrendously infected every time - I think my Crohn’s isn’t friendly with piercings so I’ve given up.
Languages: English; conversational in Spanish and Italian.

Tumblr

I showed this post to my boyfriend and he tried to take his shirt off like a girl and 

uh

yeah

Out of the 82k notes my post got this is by far the best comment holy shit thank u for being u

So i tried it both ways and uh

i mean how do you do the first one without pulling out all your hair?

this made me laugh really hard….

and it made me realize that girls and boys pull their shirt off differently. /amazed

but seriously I think girls just do the cross arm thing because of HAIR like demonstrated 

So one year, one URL change, and a hair cut later, I decide to try again… FOR SCIENCE! 

Its not science unless you write it down so 

First method:

Well done, i guess…

Second:

I fucked up

Girls… how?

I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE CAN HAVE SUCH DIFFERENT WAYS OF TAKING OFF SHIRTS AND SO MUCH DIFFICULTY DOING IT THE OTHER WAY

I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!

It’s all in the way that girl/boys shirts are made.

Girls shirts have less armpit room then boy’s do and are generally shorter so pulling it off over your head is more practical because by lifting your arms all the way up you make enough room for the sleeves to just slip off.

Boys shirts have more room and are generally longer so it is easy to slip them off over your head.

but if you take a girls shirt off like a boys shirt you will get your arms caught because there isn’t much armpit space.

and if you take a boys shirt off like a girls shit you will still have your head in it when you’ve lifted your arms all the way up because of the shirt’s length.

It has nothing to do with us. It is entirely to do with how our shirts are made. I figured it out for you. YOU’RE WELCOME!

bless you

I just tried this with my shirt and then my boyfriends shirt on me and wow it’s so true I could take my shirt off like a boy with his shirts ahha

I am 30 and I showed this post to my husband and then we stood around the bedroom trying to take our shirts off and laughing our asses off. So thank you Tumblr for the educational post.

Great Dane puppy voices his displeasure at being forced to get up early

This is some serious dedication to not getting out of bed.

That dog is really hungover. 

1) I very much identify with that dog.

2) He’s a dog! He DOESN’T have to get up! Unless he is a dog with a job. Let the poor pup sleep.

He probably needs to get a walk and go to the bathroom before it’s parents leave for the day! Trust me - I’ve had this same conversation with my beagle.

If Guys Acted On First Dates Like They Act On Tinder

hijabeng - something I thought you’d find funny - if internet “white boys” were like that in real life.

Zoe and Wash, while deeply forever ridiculously in love, are not drift compatible.

Zoe and Mal are drift compatible.

Kaylee and Wash are drift compatible, and they have the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever been seen in the ‘verse - the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever to run away from a kaiju.

SECONDED

(also, the sudden thought of River Tam in a jaeger is rutting terrifying)

She hung from the ceiling, a perfect, motionless sculpture of a girl in the process of becoming a fruitbat.  Simon glanced up at her periodically, both checking that she was still present, and reassuring himself that the grind of the machines overhead would keep her from hearing what he had to say.  It wasn’t that he was keeping secrets from her; River knew everything about her condition, sometimes more than he did.  It was that she didn’t like being talked about, and he respected that.

"They weren’t trying to unlock psychic powers or anything like that, no matter what the rumors say," he said, his voice shaking slightly.  Kaylee shifted her weight from foot to foot, disturbed by that tremor in his words.  Simon Tam was the best K-scientist she’d ever worked with.  For him to sound scared…

"Those people, those monsters…" Simon paused to take a deep breath, relaxing a little at the taste of oil on his tongue.  Enough time spent with Kaylee had turned grime into perfume.  "They were trying to set up a neural bridge inside a single mind.  They wanted to do away with the need for drift compatibility, and privatize the Pilots.  Imagine being able to market Jaegers for domestic and commercial use, because you only needed one Pilot, and that Pilot was so doped and dependent that they could never leave you."

"That’s horrific," whispered Kaylee.  "They…they messed up her brain tryin’ to do something as can’t be done?"

"Oh, it can be done," said Simon grimly.  "They succeeded.

"My sister is in constant Drift with herself."

YOU GET ME THE BEST PRESENTS <333

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

I hate that moment between “I will write fic to amuse a person” and that person responding because WHAT IF I WROTE IT WRONG.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

Oh I feel so much better about this song, now.

Weird Al will always be my boo.

10 Creepy Comments That Only Women Get On the Internet

The ladies of Cracked with a public service message…

Only change?

Not only attractive women get harassed.

Disney’s The Jungle Book cast so far: Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Ben Kingsley as the voice of Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of Rakcha, Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Kaa and Idris Elba as the voice of Shere Khan (x x x x)

YO, THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING

And not only is the cast amazing, but the film is going to be a mixture of live-action and animation (a-la Mary Poppins). Neel Seth (Mowgli),is going to be the only live-action actor and everyone else’s characters will be animated AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED.
