1. General Update: Strep Throat Is Bloody Awful

    Two weeks of being sick and miserable and leaky….two….bloody….weeks. A very big thank you to the two brats that I was babysitting that got me sick. And the worst part, they were all delicate sniffles and slight fevers, while I woke up feeling like something that died a slow painful death. 

    Also: it is now like day 17 since I last saw my phone. It’s not in my room, not in the closet, not under my bed, not in my purse, not in my car. Who knows?  At this point I should just rename the bloody thing Houdini and be done with it.  It doesn’t help that I had it on silent- no, of course it couldn’t be easy finding it now could it? 

    Granted, my phone is an old piece of technology, more at home in the history museums than anything. But it works for me and I AM GETTING SICK OF LOSING IT. Maybe I should just surgically attach it to my forehead? 

    P.S. A very big apology to anyone who called or tried to get in touch with me. I’m sorry, I really am.

    I think a big part of why I read way more fanfiction than books is that there’s just a hell of a lot less exposition

    the first 10 pages of most books are always “these are the main characters and here’s some background on each of them and this is the setting etc etc” and it’s such a fucking hassle getting to the plot sometimes

    fanfic is just like “fuck it you know all of this already let’s go”

    This one time I tripped

    A hamster bit me

    I jumped off my bed and landed on a stack of freshly sharpened pencils and one got stuck an inch and a half into the heel of my…

    Way back in elementary school, I was on the playground when one of the boys ran into me. His teeth accidentally sliced open my chin as we went down. I needed like 8 stitches. His teeth were fine. I also stained my white shirt and nearly gave my mother a heart attack when she saw me.

The interval between the start and the end of “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” is 3 minutes and 30 seconds, and the International Space Station is moving is 7.66 km/s.
This means that if an astronaut on the ISS listens to “I’m Gonna Be”, in the time between the first beat of the song and the final lines …
… they will have traveled just about exactly 1,000 miles.

DIY Inspiration: Harry Potter Potion Bottle Necklaces from Enchanted Wonderland - no longer an Etsy seller. These mini bottles are made from crystal beads, bead caps and other jewelry findings. Photos Clockwise:
Magic Wings Potion Necklace. “It will give you a pair of wings and you will have the ability to fly among the sky.”
Draught of Living Death Potion Necklace. “The “Draught of Living Death” is an extremely powerful sleeping potion. It sends the drinker into a deep trance that mimics the state of death.”
Love Potion Amortentia Necklace. "Amortentia is the most powerful Love Potion in the world. It causes a powerful infatuation or obsession in the drinker. It has a different aroma for everyone who smells it, reminding each person of the things that they find most attractive, even if the person themselves don’t acknowledge their fondness for the object of their affection. Amortentia doesn’t create actual love, but it does cause a powerful infatuation or obsession. For that reason, it is probably the most dangerous love potion in the world."
Back to the Past Potion Necklace. “This is for those who wish to return to the past - because of some sweet memories, or someone they love.”
Three of the necklaces had charms attached to a necklace extender. 2 Hearts for the Love Potion Necklace, a timer attached to the Back to the Past Necklace, and a wing for the Magic Wings Neclace.
