This Dimitri is straight out of a Russian novel
his character really is more of a prince by sheer default then nearly any actual disney prince out there and you may all fight me on this - he excudes that decent slavic sadness™ centrified all the way
ghibli movies said youre gonna be really confused for 1hr 30mins but it’ll be breathtaking so you wont even be mad about it

Also I haven’t made the bonus panel(s) for this one yet (that last panel took me longer than expected..), but aiming to get it done this weekend! Get access to all my bonus panels by being my patron 😎👍
Thanks to everyone who read, liked and reblogged. This has been wholesome and I am glad I’m not the only one who is going through this.
On a side note, if everyone who engaged with this post donated £1/$1, I would be rolling in dough but it’s all good - you are all wonderful people and I appreciate you all.
A lady asked me how much it cost to make her a purse of a well known style in cotton fabric of a particular design and colour.
£35 - I said.
She said she thought that was a bit dear for a purse.
I asked her how much she thought it would cost her to make one then.
She thought about £10 as you can get similar in Primarni for £8
OK, so for £10 do it yourself I said
Her reply was - I don’t know how to.
I said for £10 I’ll teach you how to. So besides saving you £25 you’ll get the knowledge if you ever want to make another.
She seemed pleased and agreed.
OK I said, you’ll need a machine, cutting mat, rotary cutter, rivet press and the pattern.
Oh well….. I don’t have many of things and I can’t justify buying all that just to make one purse.
Well then for another £10 more I’ll lend you my stuff to you so you can do it at my house.
Okay, she says.
Great, I replied, come round on Tuesday afternoon and we’ll make a start
Oh, I can’t come on Tuesday I’m having my hair done!
Sorry, but I’m only available Tuesday to teach you and lend you my stuff. Other days are busy with other bags and purses.
Bugger, that means I’ll have to miss my haircut.
Oh, I forgot, I said, to make one yourself you also have to pay for the sundry costs.
Now she’s confused – what on earth are they??
Fabric search time, electric, wear and tear on the machine, blades for the cutter etc
She looks at me and says – but that’s ridiculous you can absorb all that cost as you are charging me to borrow your stuff.
I could, I said, but I’m not spending time looking for the fabric you need you can do that yourself – you need 3 fat quarters of fabric, buckram, woven interfacing, non woven interfacing, a lock, rivets and matching thread.
So she then says - I’ve been thinking, I think I’d rather pay you the £35.
It’s too complicated to make one for myself, it wouldn’t be as well made and it would cost me a hell of a lot more than £35.
When you pay for a hand crafted item, you pay not only for the material used, but also:
Only by knowing all the elements necessary for the production of a certain item can you estimate the actual cost.
She looks like a good mama
pink shirt: mom
ps: what are you cooking?
mom: oh, i’m makin’ blueberry jam!
ps: can i say a curse word in front of you?
mom: no you may not.
ps: mom! just one!
mom: no, you don’t- one’s too much.
ps: look at me!
ps: mom! [laughing] mom, come here!
mom: no, i’m not gonna ‘come here’.
ps: it’s one! it’s the b-word! and it’s the only b word- just look at me!- it’s the only b-word i’d say in front of you. beautiful. i think you’re beautiful. [mom stammers but doesn’t say words] isn’t that nice?
mom: that’s very nice!
ps: i love you bitch
[mom cracks up]
I have no idea what’s going on
Congrats, we have reached a period of time where there is a generation that does not remember the first memes.
Look, i’ve been on tumblr for nine fucking years and I don’t get this meme. I remember seeing it at some point, but have no clue what it means.
because this meme is pre tumblr and pre-youtube and is about 17 years old, almost twice as long as you’ve been on tumblr
the ancient depths of albinoblacksheep will never die
ever notice how men criticize games like animal crossing and stardew valley on the basis of “the entire game is just doing tasks” without recognizing that “kill bad guy” is also just a task but violent?
”it’s so boring all you do is talk to people and do tasks so you can buy new things” yeah and all you do is press a bunch of buttons to kill people so you can buy new things? perish
my activity page has not known peace since i made this post i have hundreds of insufferable gamers crawling up my pant legs now but luckily i have a secret up my sleeve… i too am a gamer man. im immune to the gamer venom
This has the same energy as that post that’s “Red Dead Redemption is just Barbie’s Horse Adventure with violence”.
I feel it should be noted that the newest popular game among this same demographic is among us, the game that is composed almost exclusively of “just doing tasks”
I love this scene so much, because it means 4Kids thought that young children would
- Know what an insurance policy is
- Be able to extrapolate that Giovanni is planning to commit insurance fraud
- Understand that insurance fraud is a crime
…but they didn’t think those same kids would be able to comprehend rice balls
4. Be able to extrapolate that Giovanni intends to kill Jessie, James and Meowth in said insurance fraud
