Anonymous asked: 'you read a poem with the Latin name for lilies and that was all you had' bit of a cliche seeing as lilies are a funeral flower. you should make it more subtle. otherwise good
Secondly, I wrote that to my 16 year old self. Myself. My grandad died when I was 18. He was a biology professor, and when I was young, he would try and teach me the long Latin names of various flowers. I never listened. He would take me to little towns in the arse-end of Wales. I wanted to go home. When he died, I sobbed myself raw for days because he’d left while I was in a seaside town and he was in the city, and that was never the way it should have been. I read a poem at his funeral because he’d always called me his writer, and I wrote about how much he loved words. I wrote about how he’d never use one word when six would do; about how he knew the Latin names and the etymology for everything, but still said so many things wrong, because that was who he was. I mentioned the Latin name for lilies because they were a funeral flower and I was reading at his funeral, and it was the most fitting tribute I could possibly have made. There were lilies all over the hall. People left them outside. People who didn’t even know my grandfather but had heard of his work with plants and flowers came to his funeral, and they left lilies with little tags on them, saying things like ‘deepest sympathies’, right above where it declared the Latin name.
The Latin name for lilies is just lilium, by the way. If you were interested.

Please. Someone make this happen. Please. http://ift.tt/1pE5oFL
no, seriously. this would be awesome. like, if the contestants are able go two months living under 100% biblical laws, then the producers will give them $30,000 each.
but if the contestants break the rules, or back out of the show, then THEY have to donate 10,000 to a marriage equality organization.
at some point somebody is going to break a rule that, by biblical law, is punishable by stoning. so the rest of the contestants have to make the choice of forfeiting the contest, or stoning the person to death. if they stay, the producers have them arrested for attempted murder.
win/win!It got better!
