Be Neighborly 

So far, at least one good thing has come from this election. Saturday Night Live is funny again. I’m so glad, because for years, SNL was unwatchable… and that’s not just because I’m old and it starts after my bedtime.

To be fair, when Americans elect the first reality television star president, the jokes come easy. I say first because we all know he won’t be the last.

So, far life under Emperor Trump isn’t so bad [though, admittedly, he has yet to actually take office (or proclaim himself Emperor)]. Who’s to say that life under Comrade Sanders would’ve been better (everyone, literally everyone {on the left (exactly, everyone who matters [see, this is still the problem])})?

I haven’t seen many of my friends who aren’t a shade of ghost recently; I’m sure they’re just waiting out the shock and haven’t been deported yet. I’m certain, however, no one would’ve been happy with the results of the election this year.

Look, both [major party] candidates sucked. No one is arguing they didn’t (Hillary was the most qualified candidate ever and a woman, so–{Trump promised to rid the system of corruption and–[that’s enough of that…from both sides]}).

America can still be great. We are stronger together. Let’s show the world.

If you see someone who needs help, do the neighborly thing. For example, there are a lot of leaves in my yard, the neighborly thing to do would be to rake them for me. I wouldn’t even be mad.

Badger Up, Badger On

In honor of International Hufflepuff week (that’s not a thing [it is now]), I’m going to go full-on nerd and list a few of the great things about the least appreciated and most unknown Hogwarts House. I mean, the books never even tell us where the Common Room is.

Hufflepuffs get a bad wrap because the only two students from that House we really see either *spoiler alert* die or turn to stone.

  1. The Common Room is the most secure. No non-Hufflepuff has visited it in “over a thousand years”, according to Gabriel Truman¬†{who? [he’s on Pottermore {what?}]}(the the Marauders might be an exception).
  2. The Common Room is near the kitchen, making midnight snacks a great option.
  3. Hufflepuffs are exceedingly loyal. Sometimes to a fault like during the Tri-Wizard tournament: they cheered exclusively for Cedric, some even mocking Harry as a false champion. Loyalty can go a bit too far.
  4. Speaking of the Tri-Wizard Tournament, the Tri-Wizard Cup chose a Hufflepuff as Hogwarts’ champion.
  5. Fan favorites Tonks and Newt Scamander are notable members. Both brave, loyal, and hardworking heroes.
  6. They may not be the smartest, the bravest or the most ambitious, but I’m willing to bet that there are more Hufflepuff students than any other House…unless the Sorting Hat manages to divide the first years up evenly every year (unlikely).
  7. Since it’s original founder, Helga Hufflepuff, didn’t mind who she took in, Hufflepuff House is probably the most inclusive House at Hogwarts.
  8. Deadpool is a Hufflepuff. *spoilers ahead*

  9. They can be brave and patient but not fool-hardy
  10. It’s J.K. Rowling’s favorite House.

So remember:

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil.

I’ll leave you with a quote from the author’s oldest daughter: “We should all want to be Hufflepuffs.”

I think we could all learn to be a little more like Hufflepuffs. The world needs more patient, kind, tolerant, loyal, hard-working, just people in it.

A Game of Thrones Fan Theory

I wonder if George R.R. Martin wanted the series to end with so many disgruntled fans. After all, he still has a few more books left to write in the series. If the fans had received a satisfying ending, why would they buy any more of his books?

Found here (lazy)

Of course, that means that he has to write more books. Perhaps he secretly hoped the ending would produce so many disgruntled fans that they’d give up on ever wanting to continue reading the books and stop pestering him when the next one came out.

See the source image

Found herehere [I know, I know]

Maybe he really hoped it’d be good so he wouldn’t have to finish the books.

See the source image

Found, you guessed it, here

Now, however, he does. He’s even set a deadline …though he’s broken them before.

See the source image

Found here [don’t say it (lazy)]

Still a better ending…maybe [the one I always thought it would be].

Endgame Spoiler Free Review

There was [is?] a lot of hype surrounding Avengers: Endgame. But, I think, for the most part, it delivered. I’m not saying it was the perfect movie, but it definitely didn’t feel like it was three hours.

Of course, I’m not the only one who thought so. If money talks, we can know just how good the movie is. It broke all sorts of records. Opening day ($60 million in North America), opening weekend ($1.2 billion), even making over $1 billion worldwide so quickly.

The crazy thing is that I’m sure people will already have seen it multiple times. Not just because they want to see it again, but because the plot is so intricate you might’ve missed a few things. Or you just want to catch all the Easter eggs hidden throughout the movie.

It’s pretty great. One of the better Avengers films. Definitely better than Avengers: Infinity War. Do yourself a favor and watch it once…maybe twice.
