Oh! Camil

Pandas, other bears, and whatever else crosses my mind. I'm easily amused.. I'm Zee. I'm 40ish and live in the Pacific NW. My interests include pandas, pop culture, animals in general, food, travel, swimming pools, books, attempting to understand "why" and also sometimes "how". I like to visit the past sometimes but I sure wouldn't want to live there.

    Me: I think the design team at tumblr must be younger than me.

    Other Me: Why is that?

    Me: They made the new chat font small and squishy and I can't read it very well. I think they have younger eyes and aren't considering those who can't see as well.

    Other Me: Are you saying you are getting old?

    Me: WHAT? I CAN'T READ YOU.

    Other Me: ARE YOU GETTING OLD?

    Me: GET OFF MY LAWN!

    Woman: I'm smart

    Patriarchy: Well you're probably ugly then

    Woman: I'm creative

    Patriarchy: You mean unattractive right?

    Woman: I have all these incredible accomplishments

    Patriarchy: Yeah but look how ugly you looked doing them

    Woman: I have value

    Patriarchy: Not if you're ugly lol

    Woman: I'm conventionally-attractive & posted selfies on my blog

    Patriarchy: I'm so sick of these empty-headed chicks only caring about their looks. Just because you are attractive and get attention from men doesn't mean you are special or deserve respect. Why don't you read a book or do something productive with your life you dumb slut

    lesbian: *breathes*

    straight girl: omg what u like me??? I'm sorry but I only see u as a friend!!!!

    QF so much T and to add another thing that happens a lot:

    Me: Man,, I feel like the least desirable person ever.

    Gay Male Friend: Oh, that's not true, you're just hating on yourself because you have the blues.

    Gay Female Friend: Oh, that's not true, you're just hating on yourself because you have the blues.

    Bi/Pan/Etc. Friend of any gender: Oh, that's not true, you're just hating on yourself because you have the blues.

    Straight Male Friend: Oh, that's not true, you're just hating on yourself because you have the blues.

    Straight Female Friend: Oh, that's not true. I mean, I would date you if I were, you know, THAT WAY, but I'm NOT THAT WAY so I wouldn't date you really, but, you know,, if if were THAT WAY I would totally want to date you. If I were THAT WHICH. Which I am NOT. Not that there's anything wrong with being THAT WAY but I'm NOT THAT WAY. Just to be clear.

    Things you should know about this scenario: they never actually say "gay" or "lesbian" or "homosexual", it is always THAT WAY. Also, they are always, without exception, chicks that you yourself would never date and had never even considered as a potential date because they are totally not on your radar in that way. Also, when you don't immediately give them effusive praise and act like it's the greatest compliment ever that someone who will never ever ever date you says they might hypothetically date you if they were a completely different person, they get all hurt.

    OTOH, it never stops being entertaining to watch their faces fall when you point out that you would not, in fact, date them.

    Tumblr: we're so smart intellectual not like those idiots on Facebook no were so smart college kids science and big words we read books

    Tumblr: omg did u no u can get infinite chocolate whenu cut it a certain way dd u know girls w/ purple eyes never have to shave or get perids did u know spiders will bite u in te butt on toilets lol it's true I read it on the Internet

    What, you all learned reading and writing from magical unicorns?

    what i've learned on tumblr: Self defense techniques, art appreciation, dealing with basic life situations, politics, the economy, biology facts, to be open-minded and accepting of everyone no matter the shape, form, gender, race, sexuality, religion, social status, SPECIES. the difference between grey and gray, the effect one simple little word can have on people both good or bad, how to deal with depression, anxiety and suicidal feelings, some of the different theories of our existence, WHAT TO DO IF I GET BURIED ALIVE

    what i've learned in school: using a calculator to find a side of a triangle

    character: says "I like bread" that one time

    fandom: character has an obsession with bread. bread is character's true love. draws character as bread. every meta joke in fanfic is about bread. the character's room is wallpapered with bread

    See: I've read a lot about The Beatles and yet oddly enough not one of the people who actually knew him and spent time with him thought that George was obsessed with food.

    Reblog and see if you get a color (formal version)

    PURPLE: We near never speak, but I do enjoy your presence on my dashboard.

    FUSHIA: I wish I could befriend you off the internet.

    GREY: You leave me with jumbled words.

    RED: You cause my heart to burn with a fiery passion!

    GRAY: I sincerely wish you would notice me.

    PINK: It would be most kind should you choose to follow me.

    TEAL: We have quite a lot in common.

    BLUE: You are m-my tumblr crush...

    ORANGE: I dislike your page.

    YELLOW: PLEASE! I REQUEST YOU TO BE SEXUALLY INTIMATE WITH ME!

    GREEN: I find you most attractive...!

    BLACK: I would quite enjoy spending time with you...just the two of us...

    BROWN: I dislike you.

    There should be a color for "I immediately noticed that fuchsia is spelled wrong and I am irked by the misspelling." Also, why are all these color memes so ridiculously over the top and yet never contain messages people would sincerely want to send like:

    Aubergine: You have a lot of interesting things to say

    Mint: I enjoy your writing style

    Watermelon: We don't talk often but I truly enjoy reading your posts

    Cherry: Why are all your color names also food names?

    Edit the first: Oh, wait, I see that watermelon was already covered. Also, OBVS, I'm not soliciting colors here.
