things most random!

In no particular order:

  1. I’m doing this again. It just feels right, for some reason. I may even discover what that reason is while doing it. ♥
  2. I discovered Midjourney and I’m actually thinking of buying a subscription; I can’t draw, but I have images in my head, so…get the AI to do it for me! :D
  3. I have three new pairs of Converse highs (problem? What problem?) — all of them second hand steals. Baby blue pearl, China blue, and jacaranda purple. :D When I said back in ’16 that I wanted a star on my ankles and a rainbow on my feet, I was dead serious. (So the collection now comes to…red, pale pink, hot pink, fuchsia, fuchsia sequins, black and white glitter, flower embroidery on black, olive jacquard, and the aforementioned three. Only four were first-hand buys, no less! …yes, I know it’s supposed to be more socially acceptable to spend money rather than save it, to which I say bite me. :3)
  4. The previously mentioned eastern brown seems to have disappeared. We burned the bonfire pile today; no sign of escaping snake. I’ve been given the all clear to continue walking down the back :D (Also, I discovered that bamboo makes fabulous popping noises when it burns. Easily as loud as firecrackers! XD)

some facts, what spice!

Fact: unsweetened cranberry juice is revolting.

Fact: nerve pain is awful, please make it stop. My body is exhausted but I can’t sleep.

Fact: I made a thing! And did a words! Elrond having twinless twin feels will never not be relevant to me.

Fact: The neighbour saw an eastern brown slide into my yard and hide beneath the bonfire pile. Cue me avoiding that area of the yard for the next ten thousand years.
(Listen to your friendly local OzScot here: you do not eff around with eastern brown snakes. They are not cute and sweet snek friends. They are incredibly aggressive, extremely venomous, and responsible for 60% of snakebite deaths in the country. If you see one, you stand stock effing still and let it go do whatever it’s doing — probably hiding from you, but still. Do not pass GO, do not collect $200, do not disturb it or interact with it in any way.  Keep an eye on it, and when it’s safe, you get the hell out of there and call the snake-catcher if it’s near your home. Also, if your dog or cat has one bailed up, DO NOT DISTRACT YOUR PET. They are a thousand times more likely to get bitten if you distract them. Their snake instincts are way better than yours; just let them be and keep an eye on where they and the snake go.
…this PSA has been brought to you by my horrific fear of eastern browns.)

Fact: the online treatment of the Rings of Power cast is giving me flashbacks to my teenage years and being cyberbullied to within an inch of my life.
I hope every single person who has thrown abuse at any of these actors magically develops a condition that causes any internet service they use to stop working forever.
