[up][up][up] Less seats for Tories is always a good thing, not to mention those knob gobblers from UKIP being out of the Parliament.

Also, I'm observing that I'm using more British idioms and phrases when I speak English.

I try to restrict my actual usage of British idioms to with people who will understand them, but they're definitely part of my vocabulary.

I remember my younger brother and I used to argue about that a lot. He didn't like it when I used expressions and figures of speech that are either from the past or not American. >.>

Found this super yummy-sounding brownie recipe on BuzzFeed. Gonna give it a go tomorrow.

I tried doing a mug brownie (aka bake it in the microwave in a safe mug) and it just tasted bleh. It's because the recipe didn't ask for a drop of vanilla extract or a pinch of salt: that REALLY helps.

Hmm, now that I think about it, a mug brownie sounds really good...

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I found Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie surprisingly moving. Basically, the message I got from it was "The world is a horrible, miserable place, but with kindness and optimism, we can make it better."

It's been so long since I read the books that I can't remember if they were the same way.

[up][up][up] I love Kekeflipnote!

That's not far off from the message of Wonder Woman too, actually. tongue

Actually, more like "things like kindness and optimism make it worth fighting for".

You know, escape rooms would make excellent fronts for human trafficking.

Seriously, people are paying to have you lock them in a room. It couldn't possibly get any easier than that.

I was watching Samurai Jack, and I just realized that his reaction to seeing Ashi naked is sort of like a terrible sex-ed teacher (or nervous parent) trying to explain puberty to their kid

"Well, um...I mean, you know- men and woman are different, and, private things are...personal."

which, granted, was my basic understanding as a kid
