Beautiful, Family, and Friends: SF SFGate GATE Before and after: The dramatic transformation of a shabby West Oakland @SFGate Feb 10 Victorian dlvr.it/QyZmYp 244 3.2K 1.8K OR4NOW Follow @Or4Now Replying to @SFGate When I first read this, I thought you were referring to the one on the right being shabby & I was in agreement. Then I realized...oh no! You think suburban beige is beautiful & Victorian funk is "shabby." Well F you, too. SFGate's daddy is shabby. Yeah I said it 8:51 PM 10 Feb 2019 15 Retweets 713 L ikes anaquana: seperis: ballsballsbowls: mysharona1987: If you don’t think the house looked cooler and more delightful before, then I don’t know what to tell you. Not to mention the house isn’t “shabby” in those pictures - the paint’s spotless, the molding’s intact, the stairs and windows are maintained.  I grew up in the rust belt and this house looks better than about 90% of the houses built before the 90s in most neighborhoods. This house has been maintained meticulously and lovingly at great expense. It’s not “shabby”: it’s a non-neutral color with intact Victorian details that you removed because how dare a house have unique features on the outside, what will the neighbors think? I say this as someone whose friends and family have to make them buy colors when shopping or my wardrobe woudl be nothing but black, white, beige, grey, and my super racy delve into brown and hates all the blue-teals like whoa…. WHO THOUGHT MAKING THE COOL TRIPPY VICTORIAN INTO A GODDAMN HELLHOUSE? This is uncanny valley shit; that house is going to kill everyone and drink their blood for some goddamn color in its life. …God, can you imagine the operating room-level neutral inside? This monstrosity was done by a fucking house flipper, of course. I saw the listing for it and they completely destroyed the inside of the house as well. I was so pissed I couldn’t get through all of the pictures. My husband and I bought a fixer-upper Victorian and while we’re not keeping her period authentic, we’re damn sure keeping her interesting and beautiful. She’s currently a drab white, but we’re getting her painted this year and that gorgeous teal is exactly the color I was thinking about doing her in.

Ash, Bad, and Beef: THE SPELLBINDING NATIONAL BESTSELLER Hartty Potter CH A P TER THIRTEEN THE HANDSOME ONE he castle grounds snarled with a wave of magically magnified wind. The sky outside was a great black ceiling, which was full of blood. The only sounds drifting from Hagrid's hut were the disdainful shrieks of his own furniture Magic: it was something that Harry Potter thought was very good Leathery sheets of rain lashed at Harry's ghost as he walked across the grounds toward the castle. Ron was standing there and doing a kind of frenzied tap dance. He saw Harry and immediately began to eat Hermione's family Ron's Ron shirt was just as bad as Ron himself. If you two can't clump happily, I'm going to get aggressive," confessed the reasonable Hermione 271. CHADTER THIRTEE N "What about Ron magic?" offered Ron. To Harry, Ron was a loud, slow, and soft bird. Harry did not like to think about birds. "Death Eaters are on top of the castle!" Ron bleated, quivering. Ron was going to be spiders. He just was. He wasn't proud of that, but it was going to be hard to not have spiders all over his body after all is said and done. "Look," said Hermione. "Obviously there are loads of Death Eaters in the castle. Let's listen in on their meetings." The three complete friends zapped onto the landing outside the door to the castle roof. They almost legged it, but witches are not climbing. Ron looked at the doorknob and then looked at Hermione with searing pain. "I think it's closed," he noticed. "Locked," said Mr. Staircase, the shabby-robed ghost. They looked at the door, screaming about how closed it was and asking it to be replaced with a small orb. The password was "BEEF WOMEN," Hermione cried. Harry, Ron, and Hermione quietly stood behind a circle of Death Eaters who looked bad. "I think it's okay if you like me," said one Death Eater. "Thank you very much," replied the other. The first Death Eater confidently leaned forward to plant a kiss on his cheek. "Oh! Well done!" said the second as his friend stepped back again. All the other Death Eaters clapped politely. Then they all took a few minutes to go over the plan to get rid of Harry's magic 272 THE HANDSOME ONE Harry could tell that Voldemort was standing right behind him. He felt a great overreaction. Harry tore his eyes from his head and threw them into the forest. Voldemort raised his eyebrows at Harry, who could not see anything at the moment. "Voldemort, you're a very bad and mean wizard," Harry savagely saic How To Dance. so Hermione dipped his face in mud. Ron smiled. Ron reached for his wand slowly. ermione nodded encour Eater was wearing a shirt that said Hermione Has Forgotten Ron threw a wand at Voldemort and everyone applauded. "Ron's the handsome one," muttered Harry as he reluctantly reached for his. They cast a spell or two, and jets of green light shot out of the Death Eaters' heads. Ron flinched. "Not so handsome now." thought Harry as he dipped Hermione in hot sauce. The Death Eaters were dead now, and Harry was hungrier than he had ever been. The Great Hall was filled with incredible moaning chandeliers and a large librarian who had decorated the sinks with books about masonry. Mountains of mice exploded. Several long pumpkins fell out of McGonagall. Dumbledore's hair scooted next to Hermione as Dumbledore arrived at school The pig of Hufflepuff pulsed like a large bullfrog Dumbledore smiled at it, and placed his hand on its head: You are Hagrid now." CH A P TER T HIR TEE N We're the only people who matter. He's never going to get rid of us," Harry, Hermione, and Ron said in chorus. The floor of the castle seemed like a large pile of magic. The Dursleys had never been to the castle and they were not about to come there in Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash. Harry looked around and then fell down the spiral staircase for the rest of the summe. "I'm Harry Potter, Harry began yelling. "The dark arts better be worried, oh boy!

Tumblr, Ugly, and Bears: When my brother was born in 1985, my mother purchased two identical teddy bears.

When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.’‘Does it hurt?’ asked the Rabbit. ‘Sometimes,’ said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. ‘When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.’ ‘Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,’ he asked, ‘or bit by bit?’ ‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”― Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit ugly sobbing  @upon-your-eyes
