We’re finally watching the last season of HIMYM and the ending has been spoiled for me and oh em gee future Ted is an asshole. He is sooo pushing the whole “Robin/Barney OTP” thing to his kids. But at the point of him telling this story, he knows they’re over, right?
At the grocery store the other day I parked next to someone with a bumper sticker that said “Planned Parenthood is killing a generation one baby at a time.” I really wanted to put a note on their windshield that says “yer FACE is killing a generation one baby at a time” but I didn’t. Can I get an adulting cookie?
I just binge-watched don’t trust the b in apartment 23 so I had to try out June’s braids on Pippa. I totally need to practice more but I like it!
Did I ever tell y’all about the time my husband was wearing his Bizarro shirt and this teenager came up to him and said, “if you’re going to wear a knock-off superhero shirt, at least try and find one that got the colors right.”
Brandon just thanked him for his insight and went back to what we were doing but ohhhhh we laugh about it a lot.
(This random anecdote brought to you by the librarian who just ordered a fun looking Bizarro chapter book for her collection. Let this be a lesson to you, folks. Don’t ever be a jackass know-it-all teenager or years later people will still be laughing at you.) (Full disclosure? At some point we all are jackass know-it-all teenagers.)
So I’m going through november 2012’s tumblr (the last time I worked on something like what I want to do for this year’s Nano. I want to see what I wrote then about it) and I refound this anecdote and oh em gee. That teenager still cracks me up.
can I be unkind for a moment?
So this makeup palette was bought in the last millenia. No exaggeration - I’m thinking 1998? So I let the girls play with it for awhile and tonight I emptied it out and refilled it with nail polish. Instant fake makeup! Wooo! No worries about color compatability, I just went for the sparkliest stuff cause that’s what the girls like.
THATS ILLEGAL IM CALLING THE POLICE
Brandon and I made these tonight and y’all? It’s like a fried pickle and a mozzarella stick had a baby in my mouth. IN MY MOUTH, Y’ALL!
So I have similar dilemmas every year around NaNoWriMo time and I feel like I blog about it every year and THIS YEAR IS NO DIFFERENT!
So I never finish NaNo because I’m a slacker and full time job + kids = no time. I’ll never make it as the next great novelist at this rate but whatever, I just have ideas I want to get out. So because I never finish my novel I have problems with NaNo - namely the rule that you have to have all new material. Because I’m abandoning my lesbian retelling of Turandot because I can’t get it up to care enough about the Turandot character to make my magical [unnamed lady] fall in love with her. And I looooo [unnamed lady] as a character. So. This year I’m going to steal (with permission) Pippa’s story of dancing with the blood and becoming a fairy queen and have [unnamed lady] fall in love with the slightly creepy but super bubbly fairy queen who other than the origin story is actually nothing like Pippa BUT WHATEVER.
So - if I don’t count the scenes written for [unnamed lady] toward my 50k, I can totally still use the scenes when this eventually [ha!] becomes the next great ya novel, right? (Answer: of course I can! Nano has it’s rules but I write for writing and not for Nano I just use it to force myself to actually write every day. I just have to psych myself up for this).
- Pippa: I love French Fries so much that I think I might marry them.
- LP: Really?
- P: No. Not really. They aren't old enough. And by the time they are old enough? They'll be DEAD because I will have EATEN them. Plus they can't talk so they can't say I do.
Fish funeral tonight. Some oil got spilled in his tank (tripping while walking past in a comedy of errors type thing) and we put him in a bowl of water while we cleaned it and he did not like that. Poor fish.
So I know it’s just a getting out of bed tactic but when Pippa gets up to hug me and rub my back for a sec and say “I hope you sleep well tonight?” Makes it all worth it.
I just won trivia partially because nobody else in the whole bww knows what causes toxic shock syndrome. Buncha men, if you ask me.
So I had a request for a better picture of the makeup the girls did so here you go plus you can see my scar a little so storytime!
I was, like, 7 or so I cut the bridge of my nose open in the pool and I bled everywhere and it was a big thing. I’ve got this faint scar still but you can only see if you get really close? But the other day I had a guy come into the library with the SAME SCAR only his was probably newer than, like, 25 years old and much more visible . So I didn’t jump up and down and scream “SCAR TWINS!” (especially because you really have to be up close to me to see said scar) but I thought it really hard.
