"Five Hundred Miles"- Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan & Stark Sands
Fuuuuuuck. I love folk music. I was raised on Peter Paul and Mary, who probably had one of the most recognizable versions of this song, but this is a damn good cover.
Admittedly, I would absolutely find this hilarious if I didn’t know the simple fact that the smiling woman is the Prime Minister of Denmark!
The PM and Obama have met lots of times now …
… which is probably why they’re seated next to one another. I mean, come ON, obviously it’s not some random man-stealing bimbo that was placed next to the President of the United States.
But the media loves to pin women up against each other, so for good measure here’s a picture of all three smiling together and one of the two women alone…
Please, signal boost this and stop the idiotic scenario where these two intelligent and powerful women are being reduced to petty women that care only about the attention of a man - even if it is the President of the United States.
The more you know. Now, go forth an have an AWESOME day!
Kinda sad that this post is even necessary.
read an amazing article on how the reception of Michelle Obama’s “disapproving look” reinforces the stereotype about the “mad black woman”. It’s pretty annoying how people simplify her and put her in a box
i interpreted the look as “WE’RE AT NELSON MANDELA’S MEMORIAL ACT LIKE YOU HAVE SOME SENSE”
See, that’s what I got. Mrs. Obama is not JEALOUS, but in fact DISAPPOINTED that her husband is laughing and smiling at a freaking MEMORIAL SERVICE.
^ This. His approval rating is already in the crapper. He goes to represent America and pay respects to the death of one of the greatest black men IN HISTORY. And he’s taking selfies like he’s at a college frat party. I don’t care if it’s the modern age of technology. I don’t care if you three are best buds. It’s extremely disrespectful and reflective of his sense of ethics and etiquette. A person’s actions and sensitivity to his or her environment speaks louder than any teleprompter-based speech. I’m not saying Obama isn’t human and can’t have fun. I’m just saying that ANY person that does this at a memorial service is kind of an asshole.
Instead I’m traveling with the math competition team. Which AT LEAST means I can get out of the classroom and go support my kids. So there’s that. Small victories, I guess. 7 DAYYYYYS.
I haven’t taken a personal day since the beginning of the year. And the weather is GORGEOUS in Florida right now (80 degrees), and I’m like. This is ridiculous. I’m grabbing my fishing pole and headed for the beach before the weather figures out it’s actually supposed to be WINTER and double crosses us.
Now I’ll spend all week planning for a sub. Which is more work than it’s worth…most of the time. But I’ve earned this.

It’s so chilling with that Coldplay song playing in the background. LOVE IT.
Bryan, it cannot be cold in California!
Katelyn, it is 41 and windy. and it was 35 this morning. that’s pretty cold for here.
Guys. It’s 12 degrees in my town in California.
It was 60 outside and 50 inside my office!!!
It was 80 degrees and I wore a tank top and sandals to work today. Oh oops, you meant COLD…*runs* #florida
The question is- Does Castle know about her modeling career?
If he doesn’t, he’s gonna KILL the boys for not telling him sooner. LOL
Show them how good you are.
That girl is without a doubt, the lowest, most awful creature to ever walk the planet!
I legit have to remind myself sometimes that there’s not actually two of them. Favorite movies.
