Food is better with friends. We’re always saying it, and it’s definitely true! Having said that, it can be pretty daunting cooking for a crowd for the first time but there are plenty of things that you can do to make it a little bit easier!
Imagine Kirk and Spock arguing on the bridge, and Checkov giving Sulu an exasperated look before making a shipwide announcement for Dr.McCoy to report to the bridge because “Mom and Dad are fighting again”
Nothing tickles my fancy more than the idea of Jim knowing a whole lot about Vulcan culture. Like him being able to speak high Vulcan and just casually dropping it into conversation with Spock one day and Spock being so surprised that he just stops talking and slowly blinks at him.
Jim reading ancient Vulcan pre-surakian poetry along with his Elliot and Shakespeare and Wordsworth. I don’t even know why but it’s 100% my jam.
Imagine four-year old Demora Chekov-Sulu deciding to put ribbons in everyone's hair and Uncle Jimmy wears them like a badge of honor and insists that everyone do the same. And when one of the admirals contacts the Enterprise they find the entire bridge crew wearing hair ribbons.
imagine everyone on the bridge refusing to acknowledge that there was anything out of the ordinary and going on with the debriefing with straight faces
when the transmission ends everyone bursts into laughter
Jonathan Groff was not a nominee, but he won for best red-carpet banter at the Tony Awards last night. “I’m just going to grab Jason Robert Brown’s ass right now,” Groff whispered to VF Daily. Brown, who won best original score for Bridges of Madison County, turned around after the grope,…
“A year ago I was hosting the Tonys, this is crazy pants! Playing Hedwig is an absolute joy. It is a role I was terrified of and in taking it on, it has changed me and challenged me and it’s exhausting and it’s so fun to perform it and I love doing it. Thank you so much to the Theatre Wing for this award, for voting for me. For David Binder and 101 Productions for waiting to allow me to do the production, it really means a lot. I’m such a fan of the show and John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, you’ve created a character that is so beautiful and songs that are so amazing to sing and to do it over and over, I keep learning new things from it. And it’s a disappointment that you guys weren’t able to be up for it in your categories, given the circumstances, so thank you for doing that. Our production I’m a wild fan of and it all starts with our director Michael Mayer who is absolutely brilliant at everything in this show. Your little notes were specific, your big notes were grand, and all of it was amazing. To my personal Hedwig Team. Danny Paul, my dresser, is absolutely spectacular. Oh, I wrote names down… um… Mike, Nicole, and Perfidia, for your wigs, you’re extraordinary. Ariane Phillips for the costumes, they’re awesome. Spencer Liff for the moves andd the confidence, thank you. Ethan Popp, Linda Dahl, Liz Caplan, the amazing Liz Caplan, for keeping my voice in check, I really appreciate it. My band, Lena Hall, who won a Tony, and the Tits of Clay band, I share this with you (but not really). To my agent and great friend, Joe Mahoney, you’re the best. To my family, David Burtka, I love you so much and I am so happy that we’ve gotten to do this. Thank you for your sacrifices and thank you for putting up with me in all of this. To my kids, Harper and Gideon, you’re three and a half, I am so sorry that I haven’t been able to spend as much time with you as I wish I could given the show. I promise that as soon as this is done, I’ll be able to read books to you and put you to sleep. That’s coming up soon. My mom and dad, it’s their anniversary today, so happy anniversary, I love you very much. And my brother Brian is awesome too. And lastly, I would just like to say thank you to the people who inspire us creatively, like teachers, Churchill Cook, Danny Flores, and Diane Keason, Marty, these are teachers in a small town in New Mexico, who when sports was the only option, showed that creativity had a place in the world and without them, I never would have been able to do any of this so thank you so much, I really appreciate it.”—Neil Patrick Harris’ Tony Award acceptance speech (via lovetheblazer)
This makes me wet… in the eyes. I can see tears in his eyes and his voice cracking when mentioning his beautiful family. What a wonderful man, Mr. NPH
