Here’s my “post double shift, pain med drowsy, 3 day late, non live liveblog” of SNL

I get that prob no one will read this but I feel obligated and you also can watch me get less coherent as the show goes on. 

-“We fight four different women? I don’t get it” LOL Dying
-Nope. Season 39 was the season of too many musical monologues. Cop out. I’m over it. 
-Skinny Chris Pratt looks like 35 year old Ansel Elgort.
-Aidy getting turnt. Best.
-Why did Kyle Mooney get his contract renewed but Brooks Wheelan and John Milhauser didn’t?? Kyle Mooney would literally be the last of the featured players I would have kept on. Obviously Lorne Michaels knows more about this shit than I do though.
-I can’t remember if they did this pet sketch before? I think yes? With Kristen??? Or maybe someone else? It’s funny though.
-Chris Pratt is about 10 feet taller than Kate McKinnon.
-I am literally sobbing at this Marvel Commercial
-I Iove Ariana Grande but she’s trying to be Miley by signing a pop song all calm and acoustic for her 1st SNL song.
-Wow. No Cecily for Weekend Update? I guess I’m behind. 
-Ha, it’s like they’re apologizing to the fans by bringing the “girl you wish you hadn’t…” character back. I missed it though. :) 
-I’ve decided that I like the new intro but not the new set. 
-I feel like Michael Che had a hard time this episode, but he’s going to be awesome once he isn’t completely freaking out inside.
-Pete Davidson is 3 months younger than me and that’s completely insane to me. He’s fucking funny as fuck though for real. 
-How are you going to use “Oooh Child” in sketches two years in a row??
-Pretty Sure Weekend Update was approximately 1 billion years long. 
-I love Aidy, but this episode has been really Aidy heavy.
-Wait is she supposed to be Meghan Trainor? Or am I just messed up?
-LOL what is this fake show even. Kyle is good in this. I take back everything I said. 
-I feel like I’ve seen none of Vanessa? What up wit that?
-Ok but 2 NFL sketches though? This is funny but boring after the first punchline. 
-I don’t even care Ariana, I’m fast forwarding.
-I fast forwarded and a guy popped up. IDK who he is but that hair though?-This is boring. I’m bored. 
-Vanessa needs a wig and dress in the same color… wtf?? Pink does not equal red. Why did they not camera test it?

Ok so basically that was like pretty good. Solid B. With a few really stupid spots and a few hilarious spots. 

K I’m going to bed now, byeee. 







A few shots I have in my library from over a week ago of some Monarch Butterflies. 

I tried really hard getting clear pictures of one while it was flying but it was a lot harder than I expected it to be. Overall, definitely some nice photos showing off their vibrant colors! 

Nikon D3200-

175mm, ISO 400, f/5.3 & 1/1,250 shutter speed. 
200mm, ISO 400, f/5.6 & 1/1,600 shutter speed. 
200mm, ISO 400, f/6.3 & 1/1,600 shutter speed. 

These pics though. Wow. (And he’s a gymternet guy too!) 

Anonymous asked:

So you haven't posted anything to the @stopgymnastike twitter in over ten days. I thought that was going to be a source for news? Gave up after a week of doing it I see. Who is the hypocrite now?

Ok, first, you’re insinuating that I called someone else a hypocrite, which I don’t recall doing. Secondly, how does not posting on a twitter make me a hypocrite?

Since you feel like you have the right to judge me, maybe you should know that I’m currently working full time with severe gall stones. It causes me severe pain and nausea pretty much all the goddamn day. A doctor told me they’d undoubtably send me for surgery ASAP, except I don’t have health insurance so it’s considered “elective surgery”. So I have to suffer through the pain and sickness for 2 more months until my health insurance from my new job kicks in. 

My days pretty much look like this-
-Wake up at 5:30
-Work from 7-3
-Come home and take meds so I can sort of continue to function 
-Attempt to eat
-Puke my guts out (or just feel like I’m going to, depending on the day)
-Go to sleep

So yeah, you’re right, @StopGymnastike is not my priority at the moment cause I’m  too busy doubled over in pain. 

I’m so fucking over your bullshit, anon.

"Why Desch over Dowell????"

Everyone is asking - Why did Marta choose Maddie over Brenna? 

Brenna could really only potentially outperform Kyla on Bars, which she only did once this year. No way would Marta get rid of Madison/Ashton’s Bars, Alyssa/Kyla’s Beam, Mykaya’s Vault/Floor or Simone’s overall awesomeness for a (statistically speaking) 1/3 chance of gaining a few tenths on an already strong event. (And a 2/3 of a hot mess of a routine.)

So that means we’re really talking about who should earn the alternate spot. Who would you choose? Let’s assume both Maddie and Brenna hit at Selection Camp.

Which of the following would you choose as an alternate who has to be prepared to compete on all four events:
-A gymnast coming back from injury who’s only hit one routine this summer. She in theory has very high SVs, but because of her injury, hasn’t competed AA since March.
-A gymnast with a solid DTY and SVs in the high 5s across the board. She wouldn’t be your first (or even 3rd) choice on any event and has fallen a few times this season. But, she just placed 5th AA in a major international competition and tends to be fairly consistent in her scoring.

Who makes more sense to fill the alternate role to you?
