When Jack Warner was casting the movie My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews, who played the original Eliza Doolittle on Broadway, was overlook for the part, that was given to Audrey Hepburn.
That made her available to accept Mr. Disney’s invitation to play Mary Poppins.
At the 22nd Golden Globes, when she won the best actress award (she was up against Audrey for My Fair Lady), she had her sweet revenge.

Anonymous: How clean do y'all keep your living space for the cats? And if/when I get my own cat, how much should I train my eye to better secure things than can be knocked down from high places?

whowasntthere:

We keep our home pretty clean in general, the cats have full run of the house every day and are allowed in every room, so it’s best for us to be neat freaks. Most people are surprised to learn we have cats because it doesn’t smell “cat like” in our home. (We also light a lot of incense, but that’s beside the point. In my experience, cat funk overpowers most incense.)

Peter sheds something fierce (to be fair, so do I), so we usually vacuum or sweep every 3-4 days, maybe with a light sweeping in between, and brushing down our fabric surfaces with a rubber or wool fur pick-up. Our couch is microsuede, a good material to have around cats because you can wipe it clean and scrape any errant claw marks out of it.

We feed them a nice diet of grain-free food with supplemental oil for their coats. It’s important to keep their dishes very clean, too — aside from the obvious health concerns, they can also develop acne on their muzzles from having dirty bowls. Their dishes are usually cleaner than ours. Otherwise, we give the whole house a scrub-down weekly (or twice weekly) and a deep-clean monthly.

Their litter station is on a tile floor and stocked with a litter locker, dust buster (for stray litter) and disinfecting wipes. I would recommend getting some Nature’s Miracle pet spray to combat any messes, as it’s safe for kitties. Luckily, we keep the litter box very clean, so there haven’t been messes in ages. If you won’t be home to clean the litter very often, I’d recommend getting an automatic litter box that cleans itself. You still have to empty it (best done daily if you don’t want poop/pee smells infusing your home).

As for securing precious objects: definitely do that. Every cat is different, but most are curious, athletic little bastards. Konstantin broke a two-century old tea cup the first day he was here. If there is a surface for them to explore/wiggle into/jump onto/etc., they probably will. They don’t know any better, so it’s up to you to teach them. I usually give our cats verbal warnings (with maybe a clap to get their attention) and then gently remove them from the surface, followed by positive reinforcement (petting/treats). As many times as it takes. This method has worked for both Konstantin and Peter, who know not to jump on counters, mantles, dressers, stoves, heaters, sinks, cupboards, etc., etc. and has the benefit that they respond to my verbal warnings quickly and without fail, a great tool for their safety. Jiji is picking up on it, he’s still a kitten.

Also, plants — they will find and eat your plants, so be sure to only grow cat-safe plants indoors. Cat grass aids in digestion and looks adorable, too. And be attentive to any dangerous chemicals, etc. they could get into; our cats have opened cupboard doors, pantries and closets with ease. 

And please, please, please keep cats indoors. As much of a health and safety risk (for animals and humans) it is to have free-roaming outdoor cats, it’s also rapidly depleting native bird populations. (And no, don’t argue with me about outdoor cats, I won’t change my mind, not ever.) Get your kitty a microchip implant just in case it should get out and possibly a breakaway collar with their info on it — I prefer the ones that say “I’m Lost!” instead of their name.

And don’t declaw your cats. That’s amputation and is usually permanently painful. In a lot of countries it’s illegal because it’s considered inhumane. If you don’t want a creature clawing up your furniture/clothes/whatever, don’t get a cat — it will inevitably happen. RIP my favorite pants.

Otherwise, our home is stocked with scratching surfaces, enough toys that the floors look positively sprinkled with them and plenty of soft surfaces (and boxes) to keep the kitties comfy. 

It’s good for your health and theirs to keep everything clean and shiny, so be careful to know what you’re getting into and the amount of work (and money — good food, vet visits, flea treatments, etc.) it might take before you dive into pet ownership. A cat isn’t a decorative object; it’s a living, breathing, dumb little turdhat you are responsible for. If you treat it as such, you shouldn’t have a hard time at all keeping everything in its right place.

Anonymous: I really wish sometimes that we all just became one race to get rid of racism.

delilahsdawson:

bethrevis:

Oh, I don’t think that would get rid of racism, not at all. One has only to read Dr. Seuss to get an idea of how people would be prejudiced against other people even if we suddenly got rid of differences in skin color. 

I remember when I first went to college, I said something similar to what you’re saying while I was in a class—actually, I used the whole “I’m ‘color blind’” argument, saying that I wasn’t racist because I didn’t see color. Which, of course, is a product of my privilege, isn’t possible anyway, and is kind of a tool thing for me to say, although I didn’t realize it at the time. A black friend of mine stopped me before I even finished speaking and pointed out that ending racism isn’t about getting rid of the colors and ethnicities that make us all different. If that were the case, eugenics would work, and it clearly, clearly does not (as evidenced both by real history—see not just Hitler, but also Darfur, Rwanda, apartheid in South Africa, Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, and so many more tragedies—and in fiction. My book is certainly not the first one to touch upon the idea of why having one race is bad.) 

One of my favorite movies as a kid was Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Please don’t tell anyone I had a crush on Kevin Costner. But my favorite scene is when the character of Azeem, a Muslim character played by Morgan Freeman, encounters a little girl from England who’s never seen a black person before:

Azeem: Salaam, little one.

Small Girl: Did God paint you?

Azeem: Did God paint me? [laughs] For certain.

Small Girl: Why?

Azeem: Because Allah loves wondrous varieties.

It isn’t that we’re different that’s the problem. Just the opposite: the world is amazing and brilliant and beautiful and wondrous precisely because we are different.

The problem is merely that people hate other people because they are different. 

To “fix racism,” the solution—and the problem—does not lie in the fact that people are different. Take away skin color, and there would still be difference. It’s not at all about taking away the differences. It’s about taking away the hate. 

Beautiful answer from Beth Revis here. <3

Anonymous: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

middleclassreject:

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
