You can just about see the first hint of electric pink starting to come through in the bud. </p> <p>You can also see where she’s pushing so hard up against the house she’s dislodged the window screen. What a clingy baby :D</p> </blockquote> <p>Oh, I showed one of your posts about the Demon Rose Bush to an organic gardening friend. She’s recommending massive pruning until it gets under control, but considering how high that bitch is I don’t think that’s feasible.</p> </blockquote> <p>Hahahahaha, we tried to kill this thing when we first moved in back in 2015 by cutting it all the way down to ground level and etd tried to kill the roots with literal poison cause we didnt want to try and deal with pruning something where the largest thorn was the length of my pinky finger. She grew back taller within 4 months, absorbed her trellis into her vines and continued to bloom right up until December. <i>In Minnesota</i>. </p> <p>Last year she retained her blooms until January of this year. Everything else besides the neighborhood evergreens was dead, and we had hot pink blooms in -20'c weather, in several feet of snow. </p> <p>Ain’t <i>shit </i> gonna kill this thing, and since Tumblr adopted her as my plant familiar to go with the rest of my weird ass house (the tags new folk are looking for are #the house that cthulu built and #demon rose) I’ve started talking to her and she’s the god damn healthiest most terrifying thing in our yard. I love her. </p> <p>I’m going to attempt to do some delicate pruning this year and nudge her back onto a trellis (several trellises…trelli?), cause the way her thorns tap against the living room window when the wind blows is a tiny bit unnerving, but yea, nah. 6ft Demon Rose is here to stay. I’ve made my peace with this.</p> <p>Especially after last year when I made the comment in passing about needing to kill the lily cluster by the side of our house that had spring up in their hundreds (I am very very not good allergic to all lilies), and she expanded outward and quite literally <i>throttled them with her roots. </i> That was…considerate of her… </p> </blockquote> <p>Holy shit I have a rose in my back garden <em>IDENTICAL </em>to that. </p> <p>I call it the Felony Rose, since I kindasortamaybe <em>technically </em>stole it. </p> <p>They were gonna bulldoze an old farmhouse that had this huge (15x20) rosebush growing alongside it. So, I rolled up with the truck and a shovel and a pair of hedge clippers around midnight. </p> <p>Dug that whole monster out (which involved much sweat, blood, and swearing) whacked it back to a manageable size, and took it home. </p> <p>It is now in my back garden, eating my coral bells and lilies and cackling to itself as it spreads. </p> <p>It is also electric pink. It barely even wilted, despite it’s rough treatment. </p> <p>Also, in the lot they bulldozed to build that new house, suckers of the fucker are coming back. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p>SHE HAS FAMILY, I CAN’T WAIT TO TELL HER</p> </blockquote> <p>I MADE A POST ABOUT THIS ROSE JUST THE OTHER DAY</p><p>FAMILY PHOTOS</p><p><a href="http://systlin.tumblr.com/post/160821072130/the-felony-rose-shown-here-eating-the-lilies-and">http://systlin.tumblr.com/post/160821072130/the-felony-rose-shown-here-eating-the-lilies-and</a></p></blockquote>

Blockbuster, Memes, and Maine: river alwaysknew took my father to see Rogue One today. I've wanted to take him for a while. I wanted my Mexican father with his thick Mexican accent, to experience what it was like to see a hero in a blockbuster film, speak the way he does. And although l wasn't sure if it was going to resonate with him, took him anyway. When Diego Luna's character came on screen and started speaking, my dad nudged me and said, "he has a heavy accent.' was like, "Yup." When the film was over and we were walking to the car, he turns to me and says, "did you notice that he had an accent?" And said, "Yeah dad, just like yours." Then my dad asked me if the film had made a lot of money. I told him it was the second highest grossing film of 2016 despite it only being out for 18 days in 2016 (since new year just came around). He then asked me if people liked the film, l told him that it had a huge following online and great reviews. He then asked me why Diego Luna hadn't changed his accent and l told him that Diego has openly talked about keeping his accent and how proud he is of it. And my dad was silent for a while and then he said, "And he was a main character.' And I said, "He was." And my dad was so happy. As we drove home he started telling me about other Mexican actors that he thinks should be in movies in America Representation matters 🙌😳😢😊This gave us all the feels 💔❤💔❤❤❤ REPRESENTATION MATTERS StarWars RogueOne Mexico Mexican accents orgullo DiegoLuna
