Great lesson in empathy, you never know what someone is going through.

“And I put on weight. Big f–ing deal” is gonna be my new mantra

Sometimes in the course of my work I come across really amusing industry websites, like the Iowa Corn Promotion Board. I couldn’t figure out how best to process my experience with this website, so I made a moodboard. 

Dang, it’s good to be a corn farmer. 

@seananmcguire how does The Corn feel about its promotion board?

Since November, more than two dozen women - of all ages, but mostly in their twenties - had approached me in restaurants, theaters, and stores to apologize for not voting or for not doing more to help my campaign. I responded with forced smiles and tight nods. On one occasion, an older woman dragged her adult daughter over by the arm to come talk to me and ordered her to apologize for not voting - which she did, head bowed in contrition. I wanted to stare right in her eyes and say ‘You didn’t vote? How could you note vote?! You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time! And now you want *me* to make *you* feel better?’ Of course I didn’t say any of that.These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give. We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions.

You can tell how much guilt people feel by how mad they are at this.

I get what JKR was trying to do with having Mrs Weasley knit sweaters for everyone for Christmas because they were poor, but the amount of dyed yarn that she would have had to buy to make 7+ brightly colored, thick sweaters in varying size every year would have been so expensive omg

I have the theory that maybe they had a sheep or two, too, but it just isn’t mentioned because of the other theory that Harry is obvious af and it wasn’t important to the narrative. So along with the sweaters being handmade (which obviously makes them special) and monogrammed for each receiver, maybe perhaps the yarn was handspun too. You never know. I like the headcanon at least.

She’s thrifty, she definitely knows how to get inexpensive yarn. Harry never asked about it, so it’s not in the books. People forget it’s ALL in Harry’s POV.

So yeah, they definitely have sheep, like they have chickens. And they possibly also have recieved odd half-balls of yarn also from Arthur’s coworkers. People who know the Weasley would know Molly knits.

Also if you’re unravelling grown-out-of jumpers, there’s at least a little bit of recycling going on.
