Love Jon Stewart.
can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.
mom: hey *dad’s name* oh whoops i mean *brother’s name* oh no *sister’s name* i mean *name of the family goldfish* ah shoot i meant *your name* can you get down here really quick i need something
my dad has literally called me by his own name.
i hate when you’re not in the same mood as your friend like when you want to slay your enemies and feast on their flesh and your friend wants to dance in a field of daisies and sing for the sake of singing like no stop that grab a pitchfork
carlydee … This is us on any given Monday night XD

TINY TURTLE INVESTIGATORS: THE CASE OF THE LARGE STRAWBERRY
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE
“HAVE YOU TRIED BALANCING ON IT”
“YES OF COURSE I TRIED BALANCING ON IT JENKINS THIS IS NOT MY FIRST DAY AS A TINY TURTLE INVESTIGATOR”
I have a job interview tomorrow, and it’s somewhere I don’t think I want to work. It’s got me concerned because this is the only call back I’ve gotten so far. (I’ve been slowly applying for open positions but that will ramp up after student teaching is over.)
Is it better in general to take a job I don’t want, just to have a job, or to wait for the best opportunity for me?
Alistair did a great service as an author to our part of Cape Breton, he was our most talented bard.

The next Disney film to be released
Has there ever been a Disney Queen? If not than she’ll be the first! And only by the looks of it!
I think it’s more humorous to watch a movie called “The Princess King”
I would totally go see a movie called “The Princess King” XD You’d best trademark that title before Disney does!
How do I do that?
"Holly @ "The Princess King"" ?
Finally a Disney Princess that lives in the 21st Century XD I can email her my wishes and blessings from the comfort of my home!
I’m sure there is some trademark website similar to something like godaddy that you can register a name, slogan, or whatever for money.
Watching people on Tumblr talk about trademarking your content! Weee!
it’s ok — imagine the conversation with the trademark lawyer.
"so there’s this great idea I found online that I loved, and I want to trademark it before anyone else does!"
"get the fuck out of my office."
