no but really guys, i have always called my (older) brother “Brother.” my younger sister plaidsquatch and i call each other “Sister” sometimes (usually just “Sis”). so “Hey Brother” is something i say on a regular basis. people always seemed to find it odd, but to me it’s just normal. so like. it took me a while before i realized that this was one of Buster’s “things.” i only realized it when i went on the internet and saw it was a meme.
so. my eyesight is slowly failing me. as we always knew it would. i wore glasses when i was a kid for an exotropic strabismus in my right eye (fancy way of saying it occasionally “wanders” and goes wall-eye on me when i’m fatigued or have been straining my eyes somehow). the thing was, i was such a goddamn little bookworm that i forced my eye to focus by reading so much. i broke my glasses on the playground one day in elementary school and when i went to get them replaced, they told me i didn’t need them anymore. i was overjoyed. because they happened to be the most horrible, ugly glasses ever. there weren’t a lot of options for children’s frames in the early 90’s (and I mean EARLY- i think it might’ve even been ‘89 when i first got them. iirc there is a photo of tiny, not-yet-school-age me wearing them). so i was liberated… with the caution that i would inevitably need them again one day when i was older. i know that day is coming soon. but this time i won’t have to settle on shitty ugly pale pink “congratulations, this is the only option for little girls” frames. i’ve been playing with the idea of cat-eyes for ages now. there are some bitchin’ vintage frames out there on the interweb. so i took an old pair of cat-eye sunglasses with really scratched up lenses, popped them out, and voilá. a test run. one day in the not so distant future, my photos will all look more like this.
also yes that is pacific rim in the background.
a fantastic spoiled nail polish called “Tip Your Waitress.” i love this color. it gives me vivid flashbacks of my childhood in the late eighties and early nineties. maybe the photo doesn’t convey the color perfectly- it’s somewhere between a deep, nostalgic hot pink and like a neon coral. borderline obnoxious in the best possible way.
things i make for you! check out my facebook store!
if you sweethearts wouldn’t mind checking out my (still very new) craft/merch blog, maybe follow, possibly reblog something, you know, that kind of thing. i’d be forever grateful.
i would be the least organized teacher
it would be like, “well, you all passed the quiz, since i lost your papers.”
"no homework this weekend just read some poetry or something"
"the deadline has been extended because i am still grading your last essays"
this is why i never wanted to be an english teacher
this is what you can expect from my twitter:
- livetweeting the hobbit
- tea tweets
- dumb nerdy shit
LET’S BE FRANZ
whenever my niece is downstate visiting, i’ve been reading her The Hobbit as a bedtime story. this is the result. my favorite thing: “Here of old was The Rain, king under the mountain.” and i mean her drawing of the Great Worm (aka the Gear Worm) and the Lonely Mountain and OMG SHE TRIED TO COPY THE RUNES I LOVE HER.
so yesterday was my 9th anniversary with my boyfriend. we drove around in the truck and blasted my ipod and i snuggled against him in the front seat… then we went to the diner and had seafood and snuggled some more. it was a good day.
also i mean we had a pretty good few days. the day before we took a walk, and watched episodes 2-4 of Jekyll, and had ice cream for dinner. we rock. we also have some captain morgan in the freezer so i have a feeling today’s gonna be pretty rockin’ as well. i might make quesadillas.
i decided i was gonna be a halfassed dwarf lass
braided my hair in front
and put my boots/fingerless gloves on
shut up i know i’m an idiot
(still got my counterfeit ladybeard, and i gotta say, i feel empowered)
this is not a cosplay okay this is like 20 mins of jackassery
lately my vision has been a little blurry in my bad eye. i wonder if it is eyestrain or just my vision going to shit. i mean i know it’s gonna happen eventually. i have intermittent exotropia in my right eye, i wore glasses for it as a kid and i was told i might need them when i was an adult. welp.
i read somewhere that there are eye exercises you can do? anyone have any info?
Appearance is usually based on your Ascendant sign, however i find people can relate more to either Ascendant or Sun
"average to tall, slender build" <——hahaha
"serious or elegant facial expression" <——HAHAHAHA
"refined features" <———-:SNORTLOL:
short, chunky build
goofy, awkward facial expression
giant ass nose, total peasant face
astrology is accurate except, i’ve noticed, for describing people’s appearances. there will be certain physical characteristics that are generally correct, but it can hit very wide of the mark. usually the projections for a persons mannerisms, physical habits, medical issues etc will be more on-target than what they look like.
chamomile mint tea out of my favorite mug.
there you go, a slice of my life.
