"Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high; then life seems almost enchanted after all." ~Vincent Van Gogh
Sometimes you just have to watch something familiar and allow it to make you cry your stress out.
Ugh, we need a new TV stand. Not only is the one we have now horrifically heavy, it also has a broken wheel on it that is going to make it very difficult to move.
We'd better get our damned income tax return soon.
Mom thinks that the kitchen in the new place is bigger than our current one, so that's a plus. Still think the living room is smaller though, which is very not good. The one we have now is already packed to capacity, and there's not a whole lot we could feasibly get rid of.
We are NOT getting rid of our plants.
*sigh* I'm going to be carrying most of the boxes around, since they're too heavy for mom to lift. None of my joints are in great shape either, but at least my back is mostly functional. And I could use the exercise. It's still gonna suck really bad though. My hands are already protesting.
The fact that people are constantly trying to tell queer people that their identity is a slur and that they're not allowed to use it is wild to me.
Because. Queer was never used as a slur against me or anyone around me when I was growing up. You know what words were used like that? Lesbian and gay.
I still can't hear the word lesbian and not have a lot of negative feelings about it. But you can bet I've never tried to tell anyone that their identity is a slur and that they shouldn't use it. And I've never seen anyone else suggest that about those terms either. I never see gays and lesbians being attacked for using those words.
So stop attacking me for using mine.
Huh. I watched Spiderman Homecoming with my friend today. It was unexpectedly good. I haven't watched a Spiderman movie since Toby Mcguire was Spiderman.
My animals' names in Stardew make me happy.
My brown chickens are Frankenstein and Godzilla, my white ones are Dracula and Jekyll.
The Void chickens are Yennefer and Triss,
the ducks are Anubis and Thoth,
the bunnies are Athena and Aphrodite,
the cows are Medusa and Persephone
goats are Loki and Odin
sheep is Frigga
pig is Dionysis
and my wonderful horse is Colquhoun.
Oh! And my kitty's name is Louis.
Ink's Review of Some Non-Dairy Milks
Almond milk- Doesn't taste great. Decent texture, tastes fine with cereal. Chocolate almond is okay, but not great. Drinkable in coffee, but not very good.
Coconut milk- Sweet. Tasted good until I put some in my coffee one day and it was so gross that it totally ruined my palate. Whatever you do, don't put it in coffee.
Rice milk- Very sweet and very thin. Tastes good to drink it on it's own, but is too sweet to be really good with cereal. Didn't try it in coffee, and I suspect it would be nasty.
Soy milk- I haven't had any soy milk since I was a kid, but I remember I didn't super care for it, but I didn't hate it. I remember it being thick, and it had sort of...debris in it. I may have to try it again at some point.
Oat milk- My favourite non-dairy milk--the brand from Aldi's at least. The brand that Wal-Mart carries is very watery and not that great, but the one from Aldi's is thick and creamy and tastes great both by itself and in cereal. It even tastes pretty good in coffee. Better than the others at least, by quite a long shot.
My mom's been in a really bitchy ass mood today. It's like, please just go to bed. You'll feel better, and you'll stop bitching at me.
Welp, we are officially moving at the end of the month. The whole thing was a pain in the ass. But we are moving. Now we need boxes.
Lol, oh boy. So if you reblog a post from your drafts, if you delete the draft afterwards, the reblog also gets deleted. lmao
My dad: *has temper tantrum because my mom considers my grandma family and tries to say that grandma doesn't care about her*
My grandma: *signs all of her cards to mom as "Mom David" and always tells her she loves and misses her on the phone*
My grandma can't clip her necklaces anymore so maybe I should get a pack of magnetic clasps for her? Just have to find some that are good quality.
My grandma's ninetieth birthday party was yesterday. I missed it because. You know. Covid. I am sad to have missed it. Mom and I have a little money right now, so maybe we can buy her a present.
It's supposed to be seventy-one degrees out tomorrow. I am free of quarantine. I'm going for a fucking walk.
I made no bake cookies and had to let them cool on the table because we don't have any aluminum foil, we never buy wax paper, and all our cookie sheets are gross and rusty no matter how much I scrub at them. >-<
Trying to learn how to play Baldur's Gate. If only I can figure out how to keep track of what character I have selected, I'll be on the right track...
It's been so warm out and the sun's been shining and I want to go for walk so bad...
So, apparently my brother's boyfriend thinks I look like Audrey Hepburn. On the one hand, this gives me a little bit of a confidence boost. On the other, I think he needs his eyes checked.
Mom's acting like we've been quarantined for a year, lol. It's only been a little over a week.
I think...I am going to properly draw...for the first time in over a week.
I'm starting to get my sense of smell back! I was able to smell my chapstick today.
My uncanny ability in Stardew Valley is accidentally finding out which gifts the villagers hate.
