The one thing that I wanted to do is to make sure that Watson did not show up in a suit. Originally they had that idea that she was going to show up in a suit and she was going to be much more pinned up. Everything was going to have its place. I did not want that.
I wanted to make sure that she was not so tight in the way that she managed things. And visually, having her not be in a suit also helped to dictate a little bit about her personality as well.
Just because he comes into a room she’s not going to sit up right away and just be ready to go, like ‘What’s going on?’ She’s tired. She doesn’t feel like going up. ‘Can I just go back to sleep?’
She’s a human being. She’s not a frat brother, but she’s also like, ‘Come on, I’m not on duty right now.’ or ‘I’m exhausted.’
I wanted to make a little bit more human and less robotic, which I think also can be a bit dangerous for that character. To make her looser was definitely something that I wanted to add for her.
And to have fun. The baseball scene was always in there with Rob. To me, this seems more like Watson. That she’s like, ‘Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean it’s not a cool thing.’

Beyond The Hobbit, Janet Brennan Croft
every time I forget why Tolkien is my favorite imaginary grandpa, I come across something like this
What do I earn from playing nice?
I’ll choke on the cries I leave in my throat.
I am not sorry.
If I am angry, I will be angry.
I will be blinding light
I will be rage and shaky hands
I will be venom and teary eyes
I will not laugh at your jokes
I will not tuck my fangs away to smile for you.
I will look you dead in the eye
I will spit out teeth that are not mine.

I think we all need to talk a little about the Greenland Shark
- It’s the only shark to live in Arctic climates
- It’s the third largest shark, coming in just behind the Great White
- It can live for up to 200 years
- It’s flesh is poisonous
- Nearly 80% are blind because of a parasite that scrapes away and eats their cornea, this parasite is also bioluminescent and gives them eyes that glow green in dark areas
- They mainly swim at nearly 4,000 feet (1,200 m) below the surface and have been observed 7,200 ft (2,200 m)
- Remains of polar bears, horses, and reindeer (once an entire reindeer) have been found in their stomachs
