forever a fucking idiot
my cousin did an awesome thing today. he brought a homeless lady to our family thanksgiving. we gave her a full plate of food and chatted. i didn’t even know she was homeless until after she left. we thought she was just a friend of his. he said when he took her back she cried the whole way there because she was just so thankful.
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
"I had two sons. And they grew up to be heroes!"
I’ve always been able to relate to Matilda… Well besides having bad ass powers. Surrounded by the bad and being able to escape it. My 8th grade teacher took me in she IS my Miss Honey.

Consumers are easily misled by packaging and often purchase turkeys labeled “organic” that were in fact fed growth hormones. Here are some easy ways to tell if your turkey was fed growth hormones.
1. The turkey’s batting average is above .400
While turkeys are natural sluggers, they rarely break .350. Thanksgiving turkey will bat around .270 with an OBP of .3100. Refer to your turkey card for precise statistics
