Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’ Vin Diesel (via who do u think u r i am)

I leave notes to myself in my drafts with “tk,” which journalists use to mean “to come,” for adding in facts or statistics later, and I use as an easily ctrl+f-able marker for things I need to add or fix or change. Ususally it’s for a date I don’t know off the top of my head, or a word I want to find a better synonym for later, without interrupting the flow of my writing. And apparently, at some point in the past, I caught myself in a lie.
