After two days of horrible, tiring, exhausting travel, I’m finally back home in Finland and only slightly jet-laggy. I had a great day today, with good food and great company, and am now ready once more to face the realities of day-to-day life… like the summer course staff meeting tomorrow morning at nine. (Ugh.)
Anyway, hi tumblr, what’d I miss?
International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. May 17, 2013.
Shamsa Medallion16-17th c. (Opaque watercolor, gold, and black ink inlaid on laid paper)
The word ‘Shamsa’ derives from the Arabic word for the sun. By the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries it became a customary device for the opening pages of royal manuscripts in Safavid Iran and Mughal India. Traditionally the centre is left as a plain gold disc, representing the singularity from which all emerges.
Wait what? Finn Jones is apparently going to play a more grown-up Björn on Vikings in S2. Now that’s a change from the Knight of Flowers. :D
IS IT OFFICIAL?!?!?!?!?! HWATS THE SOURCE HELP
I have no idea if anything is…
You mean he has his father’s eyes? :P
Seriously, though, when I first saw the link to this video, I thought it was an audition for season one and that they later decided that they wanted Björn to be someone younger, rather than a recast audition for season two. But we’ll see.
I just hope that IF they do a time-jump some 5-10 years in the future, they won’t do so right at the beginning of season two, because I really want to see the repercussions of the season finale played out on screen.
Here are some adorable bunnies, BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH I NEED ADORABLE BUNNIES RIGHT NOW
