reaverattack asked: Okay. I know I'm a complete stranger from the internet, but bear with me. I have a question about Australia and internet searching isn't helping. Do you guys have grilled cheese? Because a few summers ago we had a camp counselor from Australia who had never had a grilled cheese before. She said they didn't make them in Australia. Is this true, or is she just weird? Sorry to bother you, but it's been really bugging me.

Screwing with foreigners (particularly Americans) is kind of an Aussie tradition. If you ever come here, someone WILL try and trick you at least once. And it’s not like we ever had a big country-wide meeting to discuss this or anything, it’s just something that we do. (Ask an Aussie, any Aussie about drop bears). I’m pretty sure your camp counsellor was either screwing with you or just really weird. 

Yes we have grilled cheese! Most Aussies call them “toasties”. And they’re goddamn delicious. The most popular ones (that they usually have in cafes and things) are ham, cheese and tomato. Cheese and vegemite is also a standard here.

Here’s my absolute favourite Aussie toastie recipe - aka the only dish I can always make flawlessly and it will always taste amazing. YOU WILL NEED:

  • Helga’s multigrain bread (it has more flavour and crunch)
  • Butter (real butter, not that bullshit butter)
  • Vegemite (It’s not Aussie without vegemite)
  • Parmesan cheese (grated or powdered)
  • Tasty Cheese (better than not-tasty cheese)

Thinly spread some vegemite on two slices of bread, and put however much tasty cheese you want in the middle. Put them together to make a sandwich (with the vegemite sides on the inside duh) and then thinly spread some butter on the outside. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Pop it in your sandwich-maker OR pan-fry it on low heat until the outside is golden and the inside is melted. IT’S SO GOOD GUYS.

fake film meme ~ untitled magical girl movie
darcy (rinko kikuchi) is just an average college student in new york city, living in her first apartment and trying to balance classes, her part-time job, babysitting her neighbor’s daughter maxine (quvenzhané wallis) and secretly pining after her other neighbor, beautiful up-and-coming model claire (lupita nyong’o).

of course, that’s before darcy finds that big glowing sword in central park - and before maxine starts sneezing glitter dust - and before claire shows up at the front door in something sparkly and poofy and pink - and all that is before the giant monster tried to eat the statue of liberty.

maybe her life isn’t that average after all… 


I WOULD WATCH THE SHIT OUT OF THIS

HOW TO KILL YOUR SLASH FANDOM IN 5 STEPS OR LESS
Step one: Introduce two characters (or bandmates) with especially compelling chemistry. Once you’ve realized that fans are really enjoying their character/bandmate interaction, film them interacting even more to generate interest.
Step two: Recognizing that you’re sitting on a goldmine of potential fans for this one pairing, court the fandom by both acknowledging the existence of the ship and embracing the fans who ship it.
As a bonus, make in-show references to the ship for funsies!
Step three: Once you realize that fans have latched on to the ship as the primary reason they’re watching the show or band, start to freak out distance yourself from the pairing and issue denials.
