Something on Sunday, 12/17

STAR WARS. STAR WARS. STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR WARS. I saw Star Wars and I was INTO IT, and also the characters all ended up, oh let’s say they all ended up where I wanted them to be. Let’s just say that. Please @ me on Twitter so we can talk about it. I loved it.

Happy about:

DOUG JONES WON ALABAMA. DOUG JONES WON ALABAMA. I’m so happy for the Dem voters in Alabama, who have worked hard and who deeply deserve this. White liberals, especially in the South, should remember this victory and spend as much time as we can in 2018 working to support and empower black voters. White Democratic candidates everywhere should remember this and work to achieve policy goals that will benefit black Americans. I MEAN THEY SHOULD REALLY BE DOING THAT ANYWAY.

Charmed by:

As was the case with The Force Awakens, the new cast this time around have been on an absolute charm offensive. Kelly Marie Tran seems like a treasure, as I have said before. Here is a series of pictures where she sees someone cosplaying as her character. It’s dusty in here but I’m fine.

Also charmed by:

This excerpt from a Harry Potter book written by predictive text. It’s hard to pick a favorite part, but it’s gotta be one of the Ron sentences. However, “‘I’m Harry Potter,’ Harry began yelling. ‘The dark arts better be worried, oh boy!'” is p. good too.

Link up your somethings below!

    Very happy for your happiness in this post. 🙂 Happy Sunday Somethings!

  • Nothing to disagree with here. It doesn’t take much to make us happy, does it? Only black voters empowered to vote in their own state.

    The Harry Potter text cracked me up. Wish I could read the whole thing that was generated! Nice to have some things to be happy about. Soooo glad of the votes!

  • Jeanne

    I was happy because my whole family got to go see Star Wars together on Thursday night and we talked about resistance and hope afterwards.

    I’m not crying over the cosplay. I’m just chopping onions. That is my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

    Oh man, was that a great day or what, when I found out Jones won! I too am happy about Star Wars, but then my day kind of took a nosedive and now I’m in recovery.

  • Those pictures of Kelly Marie Tran are everything!

    That movie! It took me all week long to get to the point where I can say that I loved it. I may disagree with certain scenes (Leia and outer space), but the story on the whole was impressive. The philosophy, the symbolism, the ideas behind fighting and resisting – all perfect. I want to read all the things to find out what others predict or have to say about certain scenes but am afraid that will either change my mind or make me angry.

  • Yay for Alabama! Yay for black voters! We need more black women in Congress. We would be a much better country.

  • I’m so happy about all of the things on your list! I think I’m going to see the Star Wars movie this Friday, but it’s already making me happy to hear such good things about it 🙂

  • Stefanie

    I am looking forward to seeing Star Wars!!! Also, so excited Doug Jones won. My husband was in the kitchen making breakfast and heard the news before I did and when he told me he burst into tears because he was so happy. I love my guy so much 🙂
