Call me Kassandra. I love to discuss and fangirl my fandoms to death. I'm pretty busy with college, but I'm currently trying to overcome a case of internet shyness.
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Furisode (振袖) is a style of kimono distinguishable by its long sleeves, which range in length from 85 centimeters for a kofurisode (小振袖) to 114 centimeters for an ōfurisode (大振袖).
Furisode are the most formal style of kimono worn by unmarried women in Japan.
Many parents buy the Furisode for their daughters to celebrate this significant point in a young woman’s life. Furisode is a formal kimono for single women, it is brightly colored and made of very fine quality silk. In the very modest Japanese society wearing a Furisode is a very obvious statement. It is a very loud and clear advertisement that the single woman is available for marriage. (x)

okay okay im trying not to be too bitchy but
please tell me
where the FUCK IS YOUR MAGATAMA
I’m really worried that with the entire new Mood Matrix system that Athena is bringing in that Capcom has decided to ditch the Magatama and the Psyche-Locks.
And all I have to say to that is: please….don’t.
You can’t tell me it wouldn’t be a badass scene if when Nick has to ask
Black Jack Jin Yuugami about his past, Athena’s Moon Matrix picks up nothing unusual but the Magatama shows Nick chains…with five locks.
Our babies are growing up! Remember when Phoenix was an art student with his silly pink sweater and Miles was a newbie who wasn’t taken seriously by anyone (Gumshoe included)
Now look at them!
Phoenix is running his own law firm with two other lawyers working under him and Miles is the Chief Prosecutor!
What was a rumor no longer is. Miles Edgeworth and Trucy Wright join the fight in Dual Destinies.
The anticipation from this game is going to murder me before it even comes out.
Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.
GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.
ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE.
Thank you someone for finally acknowledging this.
People always make ballet seem like such a wimpy, easy sport.
While we are dancing, we have to:
- turn out our feet
- hyper extended our knees
- tuck our buts under
- flatten our stomach
- close your ribcage (to the point where you cant breathe)
- shoulders are down and back
- elbows are lifted
- hands and fingers are soft
- neck is long
- use proper head movements
ALL THIS WHILE STILL IN OUR STARTING POSITIONS NOW DO ALL THAT WHILE MOVING AND LOOKING GORGEOUS. AND EFFORTLESS
You try holding your leg by your head without touching it and turning on the tips of your toes and wooden shoes and tell me ballet isn’t hard.
People always say “don’t be a ballerina” and “don’t be such a pussy”
when really ballerinas and vagina’s are probably the most hardcore things
AND BALLERINAS WITH VAGINA’S ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP METAL
SO DO NOT TELL ME BALLET IS FUCKING EASY AND NOT A REAL SPORT
Most ballerina’s are also known for dancing until their feet bleed, bandaging them up and getting back on with the show.
ballerinas are fucking hardcore ok
Dancing in a ballet is like running a marathon all while showing absolutely no strain or effort at what you’re doing and instead conveying only the moods and feelings of the story and music.
There is nothing easy about this form of dancing. Ballet is the pinnacle of training and training until the actually insane moves that are seen in a show appear effortless.
look how easy it could be for disney.
An absolutely fantastic series of books. I owned almost all of them and read them over-and-over again.
