During the Revolutionary unit, every student signs the Declaration of Independence on the Promethean board so that we can all commit treason together against King George III.

Yesterday, I was taking roll.

ME: Is [student] absent?

STUDENT #1: Didn’t he sign his name really big on the Declaration?

STUDENT #2: Oh, man. King George got him.

The Exorcist III (1990) - dir. William Peter Blatty

A few seconds into this movie, a Jesus statue opens its eyes, and my boyfriend—who did not grow up Catholic with this as his NUMBER ONE FEAR like I did as a kid when it was going around that this “totally happened”—didn’t understand why I was screaming. 

This was a great movie, BTW.

Joan and Roger in Mad Men 1x11 (Indian Summer)

Personal. My Monday night looked a lot like this. My hair was more rained-on, though.

Joan: I heard you were being considered for an account because a client’s wife saw you and thought it would be OK if he worked with you.
Peggy: You know you’re not a stick.
Joan: And yet I never wonder what men think of me. You are hiding a very attractive, young girl with too much lunch.
Peggy: I know what men think of you. That you’re looking for a husband and that you’re fun. And not in that order.
Joan: Peggy, this isn’t China. There’s no money in virginity.
Peggy: I’m not a virgin.
Joan: No, of course not.
Peggy: I just realized something. You think you’re being helpful.

Coworker just walks by and said “wow, wait, I just heard Gina giggle, that NEVER happens.”

I was looking at this gifset.
