This is what my husband and I purchased at the grocery store the other day.

We don’t have kids.

We are adults. We pay bills.
And drink water from a whale.

OMG, where do I get one of these. Like, right now.

Haloo folks! 
As some of you may know, I broke 100 followers about a month ago. I’ve been saving up ever since then, and through much finagling, I have finally put together a giveaway I think is good enough for you guys!
BEHOLD:
Samconbeat’s 100 follower giveaway!
I am quite a tea fan. I just can’t get enough of the stuff, and the tea shop I work for, Our Daily Brew, is hands down my absolute favorite. THey are known for their over 150 different kinds of loose leaf tea, 90 of which they blend themselves! I am very proud of their products, and I want to share them all with you! They don’t just do tea, however. They have an amazing selection of over 65 different coffees, an enormous amount of Torani flavored syrups, hot coco, pre-packaged loose leaf tea and even bagged teas!
Prizes:
1st Prize is a one-time use $100 gift code redeemable at Ourdailybrew.com! The code is good on literally anything on the website and shipping is free!
2nd Prize is a $50 gift code redeemable at Ourdailybrew.com! The same rules apply, and shipping is still free!
Pretty cool huh? It gets cooler!
100 lucky runners up will receive a free ounce of tea of their choice! Unfortunately shipping isn’t free in this case, but hey; Free tea! This prize will come in the form of a 1 time redeemable code as well.
And if that wasn’t enough, every single person who see’s this giveaway post will receive a 10% off your total purchase code, usable *indefinitely* on anything at OurDailybrew.com!
When it ends: 
August 3rd, 2014 at 12:01pm Eastern Time Zone(UTC: 05:00)
How it works:
All you have to do is reblog this post. Thats it! You don’t even have to follow me!
You can reblog as many times as you want! Every reblog counts as another entry, but be kind to your followers and at least tag each reblog as #ODBgiveaway to save them some headache…
Likes do not count as an entry, but they don’t hurt either!
I don’t need your address, your selection of tea, nothing! You do all that on the ODB website and use your code at checkout to get your free goodies!
The winners will be chosen via MiniWebTool’s Random name picker.
If you win, I will send you the code via tumblr askbox, so make sure it’s open! Please be patient as I can only send 10 codes per hour due to Tumblr’s ask limits. It’ll take me a minimum of 11 hours to get all the codes sent.
This is an international giveaway! Anyone in the world can participate!
There is no minimum age required for this giveaway! 
I will post a complete list of all the winners August 3rd, so you’ll know if you won even it takes me a bit to get you your code!
The 10% off coupon code is good for every purchase indefinitely! Anyone can use it at any time on as many purchases as they want!
And to finish things off, here is the coupon code I promised!:Sam-Sent-Me
Be sure to type the code exactly as shown at checkout for your 10% discount!Thank you all so much for following my mishmash of a blog, and for generally being pretty awesome. I hope this adequately shows how much I appreciate each and every one of you! Oh, and be sure to check out Our Daily Brew on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for all kinds of cool stuff!
EDIT: (7/16/2014) Tumblr in no way endorses or otherwise involved in anyway with this giveaway.

We’re down to the last week ladies and gentleman!
I have some news, however:
1. If the giveaway does not reach enough unique reblogs to giveaway all of my prizes, then the giveaway will be extended by one week. That means the giveaway will end on August 10th, 2014. This will only be enacted if I don’t have enough unique reblogs to hand out all our prizes.
2. Remember that likes do not count as entries, but every reblog does count, even if you’ve reblogged 100 times! Your name will be entered in the drawing all the times you’ve reblogged, increasing your chances to win.
3. You can only win 1 prize. Even if you entered your name 102 times, you can only win 1 prize.
4. Our Daily Brew is now going to carry the entire line of “The Republic of Tea” tea’s. More goodies to spend your winnings on!
5. Future giveaways rely on your participation. My bosses have made it clear that if this giveaway does well and attracts a lot of attention, they will start doing regular giveaways on their own tumblr(which they’re working on). So yes, if you’d like to see more tea, coffee and hot chocolate giveaways; reblog! and get a chance to win some goodies now!
Thank you everyone who’s participated so far and all the people who’s signal boosted this along the way. It took a lot of work to make this giveaway happen, but you’re all worth it; hands down!

Here’s a cool chance for some free tea if any of you are interested :)

Seat belts, everyone! Netflix is rebooting the Magic School Bus.

If I got the chance to even audition for the voice of Ms. Frizzle I think the universe would implode from my happiness 
In all seriousness, I bring up Ms. Frizzle during my public presentations because she was my #1 science role-model while I was growing up, and my life was sort of shattered when I fully realized she wasn’t real and there wasn’t even a good real-life equivalent. I try to embody Ms. Frizzle’s enthusiasm and curiosity and I am so happy to see that she’s coming back!

YESSSS to all of the above!!

The truest statement I’ve ever heard in my life was that “not all men harass and abuse women but all women are harassed and abused by men.”

(via riverplants)

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.
