Insects actually have no importance of any kind in food webs and all that. If there were no insects on earth we would all be better off and there would be no repercussions whatsoever. want more proof? mars doesn’t have insects and it is doing fine. it’s red but it’s fine

my aesthetic: the kids in your high school french textbook from the early 90s
When he thought of Nissa Nissa, it was his own Marya he pictured, a good-natured plump woman with sagging breasts and a kindly smile, the best woman in the world. He tried to picture himself driving a sword through her, and shuddered. I am not made of the stuff of heroes, he decided. If that was the price of a magic sword, it was more than he cared to pay.
I need something that can wash all the pain
I think about Remus when he was alone in his early 20s a lot.
*does something incredibly stupid or embarrassing* well, one day we’ll all be fucking dead. Everybody dead. We’ll all die. Fucking dead. Everyone. Fucking everyone gone. No more bad times.
Did playing Skyler, the long-suffering wife of the drug kingpin Walter White on “Breaking Bad,” take an emotional toll? It took me a couple seasons to really understand Skyler. I wanted her to be tougher at times. I wanted her to be more expressive. I wanted her to really take Walt to the mat. If you’re a strong human being and you’re playing a person who’s paralyzed, it really takes you on a painful journey. But I finally understood that you were not meant to know Skyler in private moments, really. It took a while to get there, but boy, is it satisfying when you’ve held on to all that stuff for four seasons and then, pssshh, you get to explode.
Do you wish that the “Breaking Bad” finale had provided endings for characters like Skyler and her sister, Marie, that were as conclusive as the endings for their husbands? I felt that way when I first read it. Skyler was a broken, devastated ghost of a human being in her last scene with Walt. And I think that probably lasts for a while. Now I like to think she and Marie ended up making peace with each other, and went off to a tropical island and opened a beach hotel.
Did you suggest this to the “Breaking Bad” creator, Vince Gilligan? When you presented Vince with an idea that he really didn’t think was great, he’d say, “Huh, I like the way you’re thinkin’.” And that would mean: No.
You have two young daughters. Have you been able to share much of your work with them yet? I don’t necessarily do the kinds of projects at this point that I can let them watch. They’re always saying, “But we wanna watch you, Mom.” And I say, “I know, this one isn’t really quite appropriate, not quite yet.” They would come to the “Breaking Bad” set, but I had to choose very carefully the days that they came. My 13-year-old is pining to see me in something.
