And thus ends my west wing re-watch. I usually only rewatch the middle seasons but I went right to the end this time and I feel so empty again.
Honestly, if they had balanced the Bartlet administration and Santos campaign better throughout the final season, I have no doubt that a smooth transition could have been made to a series that continued the show with a Santos administration.
I mean, I never liked Santos at the beginning and I wanted to see more of Bartlet and toby and CJ but Santos just keeps getting pushed, and I only didn’t mind it because of Josh. I mean, I really do like Santos, but I didn’t at first. I grew to like him, and I think it could have been done better without alienating people. The focus of the season should have been the Bartlet administration making the most of their final year, while the side plot would be the campaign. Oh and I would lose the whole Will Bailey romantic subplot because she deserves better and also I don’t think anyone cares about Will Bailey enough for him to have a romantic interest so long before josh and Donna got it on. And more of that as well.
Also as much as I love Claudia Jean, I will never buy her as chief of staff, at least not the way they wrote her.
Ugh I need to stop and sleep
I don’t know. It’s 2am and I’m sleep deprived, bug I really think that it could have been done spectacularly.
C.J.: What are you, like, 4’ 10”?
Annabeth: Me? I’m 4’ 11”.
C.J.: I can’t believe we’re the same species.

This never gets old. LOL forever.
For all you kids worried that the choices you make at 18 determine the rest of your life, please keep in mind that Retta (Donna from Parks and Rec) is a Duke-trained chemist who spent her 20s making HIV medication.

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
people who disseminate false information about food stamps are pieces of shit.
It was just recently that Mecklenburg County allowed Food Stamps to buy diapers and clothing. You got ppl out here who gotta sell their food stamps to buy bus passes and toilet paper
like stop it 5

missing people who treated you like garbage is very strange and dumb
The actress will be required to perform a lap dance routine. The actor will be required to drive a car.
sometimes I see this and I get a little sad
because I wonder what happened to the girl who tried to comfort a monster, the one who couldn’t even watch when her father was run over on the street, the one who collapsed into her mum’s arms after losing her best friend, the girl who demanded a serving maid be kept safe because she mattered just as much as Charles Dickens
I don’t mean to say I don’t like the woman she became, or that she isn’t compassionate or kind or caring, and I definitely am not saying that the nineteen/twenty year old Rose wasn’t brave or capable or daring
but I look at those gifs and I think of all the worlds she must have seen, all the things she must have been pushed through and all the ways her heart must have broken because it must have been momentous for Rose Tyler to not even look behind her at those people running, to not even twitch at the explosion blooming behind her, for her face to look so goddamn cold and her whole body so used to the weight of a gun
she must be happy with who she is, as well she should, but I wonder if she sometimes looks up at the stars and misses the girl she used to be, the one who watched Cassandra die- the megalomaniac vapid villain who tried to kill her- and turned to the Doctor and asked him to save her
