Things like this make me want a bird…
Siamese Cats are wonderful… My beloved flame point Meezer, Loki, was my heart’s cat, and was taken from us far too soon by a heart condition. When we have room for another cat, I’ll go back to Siamese Rescue and get another.
Design for WeLoveFine’s Sesame Street contest - but I can’t figure out how to format it for submission with an iPad! Auuughhh!
these are my kittens, yes they meow weird, but they are mine. i found them all on my own. they are my ohana. back the fuck off camera.
are you fucking kidding me
#forcibly cuddles babies to stomach
are we not gonna talk about how she flashes her claws when they get to fucking close to her duckens?
She’s not flashing her claws; she’s kneading (Kitty paw happy stuff). The edits only give the impression of aggression, but as her face is relaxed, ears forward, eyes happy, I feel pretty safe in saying that there’s no way she A) didn’t know the camera person very well, and B) felt unthreatened in every way.
Love mommy cats…
So I’m walking out of seeing Thor: The Dark World, hand in hand with my seven year old son, looking at the teen and twentysomething fangirls with “I (heart) Loki” written across their faces and arms in eyeliner. They’ve got Loki tee shirts and Loki staffs and (want want want) even Loki earrings.
And I sigh.
For all my love of the film, all my pure fangirl joy in the story and characters, I’m left with one question bouncing around inside my skull: Is it wrong or creepy for a 40something mom to just want to put her arms around this incarnation of Loki and give him a hug?
It’s not sexual. It’s not love. It’s not about any sort of desire. It’s just that there is something about this character that wakes up that protective, consoling maternal side of me. There’s a vulnerability to the character that comes through in flashes, and leaves me wondering - did he, or did he not, actually betray the brother who still loves him? Does he have even a glimmer of goodness left?
The side that wants to hug him says yes. But, to paraphrase Loki’s own words to the Asgardians who would all too gladly kill him for betraying Thor, “There’ll be a line.”
But if I ever manage to meet Tom Hiddleston… well, I’ll try anyway.

When Alan Taylor’s 6-year-old daughter was cast as Norse trickster god Loki in a school play, she came to her dad for advice. And luckily, the director of Thor: The Dark World (out Friday) knew exactly who to ask: his own personal Loki, Tom Hiddleston.
The major takeaway the British actor imparted to the youngster: “No matter what’s going on, Loki is never not having fun.”
