I am cruel to cat treats.
Ziggy has figured out I hide the treats in the cat carrier. He thinks it is not fair to keep his friend, Freeze-Dried Chicken, locked up like that. He has spent the entire day pawing at the bars and pining for his lost love.
Things That Matter
Lintilla is made of fluff and hate. She hates me, she hates that cat, she hates her food, she hates that cat, she hates her bed, she hates that cat, she hates being touched, and she hates that cat. Affection is only tolerated on her terms, and in the exact quantity she wants. For the most part, she lives under the bed or in her laundry basket, emerging only at meal times. I’m having a mild...
scarfarms replied to your post: Don’t Starve Stuffs Wow I had to stop reading because 1. Dunno what you’re talking about cuz I suck at this game and 2. I think I might be spoilered but it doesn’t matter because I have no idea what I just read AHAHAHA oh god so excited! Getting through...
justonescarf replied your post Dont Starve Stuffs What game is this? :) Don’t Starve by Klei Entertainment It’s very unforgiving, but terribly addictive.
Don't Starve Stuffs
I beat Adventure Mode with Wickerbottom. (spoilers below)[[MORE]] And then I turned around and beat it with Maxwell because I didn’t want him taking over her world. Wickerbottom definitely has an easier time starting up on the 1st world, but not having to worry about sanity was really nice in Darkness. Especially since Maxwell’s darkness was impossibly huge; I wandered for 3...
Today, I am treating myself to fresh fruit and cake. I will likely do the same for my birthday in a few weeks. I’ve been saying for years that I raised myself; it’s time I celebrated that.
scarfarms replied to your post: Haven’t done one of these in a while… I hardly last very long at all anymore, but it’s so much fun! If I didn’t die every time I played I wouldn’t stop playing it and then I would get nothing done. Now I really really want to play T_T cursed finals. There’s a big update coming in a few weeks, so there is nothing lost in waiting until after...
Stuff and Things
[[MORE]] Every few months, I drive up north to see a play with my uncles. The plays are always quite good and thought provoking, and I always enjoy it. But it is family, and exhausting. My uncle has MS. It is mostly controlled with medication at this point, but there is no denying that he is very ill. About 10 years ago, the illness progressed to the point where he had to go on permanent...

Day 132 - Still not eaten by dogs.
Guarding the Portal
Last night, a sudden wind storm blew in. It went from unbearably hot to chilly in a matter of minutes, and the storm lasted well into the night. My cats, like me, have spent their entire lives in California and do not understand weather. Several times during the night I was woken by one or both of them growling at the storm. No vengeful wind spirits or demon dogs burst through the windows, so...
I have so many pretty high heels that I can't wear...
shinga-tumblr: whiitiestwhiitegiirl: It breaks my heart looking at them and knowing that its just not worth the pain most of the time to try to pretend to be a normal 19yo girl for a few hours. ;_; I hear ya. I miss all my pretty shoes. When I know I’ll just be in the wheelchair all day I’ll try to wear something I can’t walk in anyway because DAMMIT I JUST WANT MY FEET TO BE ALL DRESSED...
The Little Victories
I rarely buy the cats treats or toys. Lintilla is allergic to everything and Ziggy has behavioral pica. Today I bought them some feather mice. The house is full of crashing and jingling and I’ve been brought a dozen “kills” in the hour since I opened the package.
I should have stopped when I realized just how bad off my yarn was. And, the pattern really calls for more aggressive blocking than I did, but I just didn’t care anymore by the time I got to that point. That said, I did learn a lot with this project that I can apply to future ones. Including some things I want to try next time I make a scarf with this pattern. Pictures below [[MORE]] ...
Now, I do not make any effort to “properly” store my yarn. I wouldn’t even know where to begin. We don’t get wool-eating moths in this part of the world, and my house isn’t even climate controlled for me. So, I hesitate to blame the problems I had with this project on the yarn. Especially since I have not seen any negative reviews for it. However, this was the...
marnaeileen: ok i need some help—i run windows on a mac, and i’m planning to buy the new dao bundle while it’s on sale in steam and i’m so confused ok so, do any of you know of a good software that i can use to take screenshots? as a mac user i’d usually just command+shift+4, but that doesn’t work on the windows partition and there’s no “print screen” button on my mac. also, does the toolset...
After spending far too much time fiddling with the toolset to make a head morph for Adaia that looked vaguely like the original, I then redid my Panna Tabris to look like her parents. The biggest changes were to make her brown liker her mother, give her red hair like the rest of her family, and give her a chin, but I’m quite pleased with the “final” version. Before - After
menacherie: i dont understand the need to hide tattoos if you work with children. i mean you’re literally working with people that color on their body with markers all day if they could. hell they color YOU with markers if you don’t watch them close enough. the problem is the parents who need to get the fuck over themselves. I have tattoos, visible piercings, and a cane. Guess which one...
And then I hung up on my mother for criticizing Michelle Obama’s hair.
themodernistwitch: The racial politics of the Boston situation are really personally resonant to me as an American person of Eastern European/Central Asian background whose family are fairly recent immigrants (I’m third generation). I most definitely read white, as the bombers did/do. I have all those privileges. I am the gateway to Other, my foreign family invisible/unmentioned until racist...

A guide to Flying Lessons, by Lintilla Flufferbutt. Wait until Mom is busy in the kitchen. Bonus points if it involves heat and sharp things. Enter the kitchen carefully. This is important, you don’t want Mom to hear your bell. Get right behind Mom, as close as you can without touching her. Meow as loud as you possibly can.

aiffe: I’ve read a lot of great essays about how fandom is female-majority and creates a female gaze and a safe space for women and etc. But spend five minutes in fandom and you’ll have an unsettling question. Why does a female-majority, feminist culture hate female characters so much? It’s not a question of if it happens. You know it does. You can go into any fandom and see it. Some fandoms are...
[[MORE]] gdi For the last 2 days, I have been getting triggered by a gif set. Every time I adblock it, another version shows up on my dash. 2 days of shaking, crying, anxiety, and flashbacks because people think torturing an infant kitten is cute.
Can I just mention that I’m still a bit tickled whenever I see someone linking my little Jowan’s Intention Fix?

I am not immune to silly head canons.
In my personal-canon playthroughs of the Dragon Age games, both my Warden (Tabris) and my Hawke (mage) have a mabari named Garmr. Tabris named hers Garmr after hearing Hawke calling his dog as she was leaving Lothering because the mabari perked up at the name and made a sound very much like it when she asked if that was his name. Hawke named his mabari Garmr because a dog that smart should have a...

createourownlight: I’ve never asked anyone to reblog anything before, and I probably won’t again. But I am now - because this matters. The Steubenville rape victim, when offered money for her legal expenses or counselling, asked that people donated to a shelter for abused women and children in her county, Madden House, instead. Her attorney spoke in a local news article on why the family...
Despite my doing my due diligence, job turned out to be a scam. I lost no money or anything like that, so the only cost was time and frustration. They have been reported to the appropriate entities. CalJobs recently did a major system overhaul and, holy cow, it is actually usable now. Like, the old system had a 500 character limit for your resume. Now you can upload resumes, cover letters, etc....
