Happy International Women’s Day. You’re probably working.
Nope. I was home taking care of my daughter. See, in Sweden we pay shitloads of tax and have strong union which allows me, her dad, to stay home with her for quite some time. We actually get 480 days per kid (to use until the child is 8). 60 days are reserved per parent but we are given some extra money if the days are split more equally to encourage fathers to stay home more. We have the right to stay home until the child is 1½ years old and our employer can’t stop us :)
So no, I wasn’t working.
WHERE IS SAILOR MOON
My trailer’s been known as the party trailer. It’s decorated with lots of red and it looks like a den of iniquity. I like music. I like to dance. Some nights in the first season we couldn’t get our scheduling together. So most of the time we were hanging out in our trailers for so many hours it was unbelievable. And we were bored out of our minds. I brought my CDs and there was a compilation with a song on it, “The Jackal.” I memorized all the lines to perform it for Richard [Schiff], because I wanted to make him laugh. He became a part of it, the air drummer, the air saxophone player, the air everything. And he would make me laugh harder than I’ve ever laughed, seeming him do all these little moves of being this cool jazz guy.
One night we brought Aaron [Sorkin] and Lew Wells and a bunch of people into my trailer and we did it for them. Aaron laughed so hard and the next thing I knew it was in the script. I was amazed that he was able to bring that into this show. They had to reshoot it because the first time, it was more like Allison Janney would do it, not like CJ. It was wild. I was just going crazy. And they said, “You can’t be so good at it. CJ wouldn’t be as good at it as you are.”

“I’m impossibly tall. When they find it hard to pair you up with the opposite sex, then what’s left for a woman? Either you’re the ball-buster or the not-so-attractive girlfriend standing by the lead. I mean, traditionally not so attractive. … When you fall within the cracks, you thank God for sci-fi, because they’ll give you a gun, and they’ll say, ‘Go over there and conquer that world. You kick some ass, girl!”Gina Torres (on working on Firefly)
why is it so hard for the media to come up with a gay character whos entire plot line and personality isnt centered around the fact that theyre gay
NOT MY DIVISION Master Post (International Lestrade)
I love this thing so much that I decided to do a master post. xD
The international!Lestrade movement was started by: http://fanartist-glaucopis.tumblr.com/
The rest is going under a “Red More”, because it’s huge.

or this one (if you prefer it):
These are the ones I found so far. If you find any more, please message me and I will add them to this post.
Btw, I made the Slovene one. The rest belong to other people.
EDIT: I’ve decided to credit the people who made this (If you’re one of those, tell me so in my ask, please).
I’ve also been getting complains that Mexican etc. is not a language and to avoid future misunderstandings, I feel that I need to tell you I know that.These post lists nationalities, NOT languages.
Amazing how fire exposes our priorities.
