I love stories and think it's important that there be beauty in the world.
Every once in a while some seriousness creeps in, but this is mostly overflow from my fevered fannish brain, geeking out about Pittsburgh, making stuff up about its counterpart Pitetsbkrrh, and posting my photos (often backlit), with a side of squeeing about things that make me happy or amused.
I feel strongly that if you blog something that's not your own creation, you should identify the person who made it. In that spirit, my icon is from here.
some kid in my class wrote an essay about how it never explicitly says Beowulf isn’t a robot
my writing style could best be described as “probably more commas than is entirely necessary”
Personally … I have a problem with ellipses. After I decided that I was going to stamp out all the ellipses in something I was working on, I counted 10 in 7 pages — and that was after I’d already deleted a few. (Em dashes are another problem I have.)
I dont know what to call this au but im going with “ufo party”
wait au? nah this is completely canon
I caved and bought some of the chintzy skull goblets … apparently finding them in purple was all it took. (Well, okay, purple and not as ludicrously marked up.) As I expected, they’re not that great for drinking beverages out of — the lip of the bowl isn’t rounded enough — but for ice cream? Perfect. Maybe chocolate mousse, too? Not sure what else. There’s a family custard recipe but I’m not that into that.
I am blaming all of this on the slight fever I had when I bought them, and when I ate the ice cream (stupid sore throat).
ITS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN. ALREADY THE HALLOWEEN TAG IS FILLING UP WITH BORING AND INSULTING SLUT SHAMING STUFF. CELEBRATE ANY WAY YOU WANT TO.
