lymph vessels

nobody seems to care much about these guys, yet your arm would swell up without them — there’s just enough net fluid leak from capillaries to cause problems in the absence of another set of pipes to return that transudate to the circulatory system

let’s have a little respect for lymphatics

So, lets review. At the moment, school work and home life are shit. What does that leave? My car drives which I now don’t have and sleep. Oh and I don’t sleep anymore. Perfect.. This isn’t a dangerous road I’m on or anything. So fuck you. Fuck you. If you think you’re gonna make my life hell, then guess you should remember what you’ve told me and done to me for years and get ready for that.. Cuz it’s gonna get fucking miserable up in this place.

Rant done.

"I didn’t have who Will Graham was in mind.  And then, our very first conversation with the network about who this should be was Hugh Dancy.  There were three names that came up – Hugh Dancy and two other actors – and everybody said, “Let’s go to Hugh and see if he’s interested.”  We just thought that he has an innate likeability and this character is very complex.  Like it says in the book, “Fear makes Will Graham rude,” so he is anti-social and complicated and in his own world.  You have to have somebody who has an innate likeability, otherwise they’re just going to come off like an asshole, and Hugh has that.  You want to be invited into a world by an actor, and Hugh Dancy, as an actor, invites you in to the world that he’s inhabiting. 
And based on getting Hugh, Mads was interested because they had worked together on King Arthur.  They were friends.  So, we sat down with Mads and pitched what the show was to him.”

Half-Mourning Dress

1910-1912

The Victoria & Albert Museum

What’s a “half-mourning” dress?  Mourning in the front, party in the back?

Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning. 

Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.

That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:

I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
