I wish things didn't cost money.

I was dreading my friend getting around to posting the pics from when I went to the beach with her, because I really did look like refried ass; also, my friend is like five feet tall with 0% body fat, so it is not humanly possible to feel like anything other than a whale when she's wearing a bikini next to you, but I actually kinda dig this one.

Attachment 28425

Let me add to my earlier ranting about chef groupies by saying that never have I heard a man express admiration and general sentiment of "yeah, [female chef] is a badass/one of my idols". Not one. Not ever. Guess it's that whole thing about men being unable to identify with women. They're standard and we're the other. They don't want to be like us, we're not good enough to be like them.

School prayer won't fix mass shooting. God isn't poking around saying, "hey, send a shooter to that school. They don't pray." Seriously people.

I am having some freaky dreams at the moment. I just woke up after dreaming I was pulling plants out of my leg and not little ones, big ones like pumpkin plants. Wtf?

I swear the vet accidental drugged my cat yesterday.

Took the two of them to the vet. After 13 years I know to expect blood and tears. Literally. They do not like being wormed.

They always yowl the whole time. Poppy was pretty docile and accommodating this time. When the vet went to get a worming tablet out she rummaged around in a pot filled with lots of different pills, which i found a little odd. Back in the waiting room afterwards she was swaying in her box and actually started to purr!!! That has never ever happened before.

Later that night she was a bit unsteady on her feet and kept falling asleep with sitting up, her little head swaying. Her sister was completely normal.

Hmmm.

I know.

I did the same thing recently and in the salon someone told me I had "man-catching hair" now and I should go somewhere and swish it around in front of as many men as possible.

Can't make this **** up.

Saria, that picture is gorgeous! And seriously you have a beautiful face, body AND hair so I am so not buying your claims of looking bad in pictures.

I felt like a giant hulking wall of Amazon warrior without the badassery walking next to my former roommate who hated light and air, because she was like 4'9" at the most. She wasn't a complete 0% body fat type, but just looming over her that much, I wanted to like run away to Brobdignag. So I totally get that part.

My skin is literally so pale that it reflects direct sunlight. There are pictures my friend took recently where my hand looks like an eerie floating white glove because I'm wearing black and my face is shadowed by my hair so it still looks like skin. There are also pics where my exposed legs look like white tights because the sun is hitting them. Whyyyyy have I never taken pictures looking up into the sun, preferably while laughing maniacally?? Instant vampire, minus the bursting into flames!

This yoga place close to my house is offering a free week of classes. I'm gonna do it! I'm heading down there tomorrow to start. This first class will be a "restorative" class, which they only offer once a week, and which I figured would be a good one to pick to ease me into it. Other than that, they do power yoga and the dreaded hot yoga. Yeah...that second one? I'm not walking into a hundred and five degree room to do anything but walk right the frick back out. Soooo yeah I'm going to jump into a week of power yoga after spending a year and a half doing pretty much nothing. I might die. And people would think I was kidding at first collapsing on the pavement because I not only "look healthy" (slender does not = healthy I AM LIVING PROOF Y'ALL) but also look like a teenager and everyone assumes teenagers are ********s, so they wouldn't even try to resuscitate me.

I legitimately cannot touch my toes anymore. Like, I'm inches away. I'm not even CLOSE. What happened to being able to grab onto my feet like "whatever, just chillin' in this stretch"? Like, forget my poor atrophied muscles for a moment, I'm not even bendy anymore. I really, really need this. And since I have a yoga mat (which I need to find, ack!), I can hopefully keep it up at home after the free week is done.

I went to see if I could find said Frozen concept art after reading that post and came across a quote from one of the directors that had this in it: "...From the Kristoff angle, we were trying to get at what it’s like to be a guy, trying to understand women — basically..." I wish there were less "women are magical mystical creatures of mysteryyyyyyy" messages going around making relating to the opposite gender seem like some big challenge when it's really just "women are people, men are people, let's all be people together." I don't care what was meant by the quote, it just reminded me of this.

I get warm fuzzies whenever I see an actual realistic male/female friendship depicted in movies because it is so very rare to see. There's this media obsession with making all [straight] male/female friendships out to be either romantic relationships or unrequited crush angst waiting to happen and it's so weird.

Reading that whitewashing tumblr while the sun rises outside my window because that's how I roll. Had to cut myself off at page 21 just now. It's better than clicking through over a hundred pages, though, which I've also done. Every time I click a link, it has the potential to snag on some corner of my mind and then off I go, all HOLD ON EVERYBODY I HAVE TO GO READ ALL THE THINGS.

It is 6:46 am. I just...I have to make note of these things so there is a record and I can't pretend it's not that bad. I can't be nocturnal and also this pale. People will talk.

...Like, besides the family members that already call me a vampire. Obvs.

You and me both! I am potentially sitting on a gold pine cone mine.
Yeah, so this native New Englander, who now lives in the Caribbean, sometimes yearns for nostalgic sort of things to decorate with around the holidays that just aren't available around these here parts...

So, sorry to rock your worlds, but there is a market out there for pinecones

that really grinds my gears, because all the little children in school all somehow believe in the same god. Who knew.

That was so not nice. Who wouldn't want to spend time with you?
That's what I'm saying! They went out to eat and then walking around some shops! I LOVE EATING AND WINDOW SHOPPING! Those are two of my favorite things! How could they?

People are so weird.
Way more people try to touch my hair when it's curly, so... If that's not "man-catching" hair, I don't know what is!

Every single year, Natalie and Jo singing "We Need a Little Christmas" makes me giggle for some reason.

I love Natalie. Hahahahahaha.
