I AM FULL OF ALL-CAPPED RAGE.
Yeah, the day pretty much went downhill from there. I was trying to be positive! But cars were CHASING ME in crosswalks! And then mean people mocked me OUT LOUD on the street! And I totally tweaked out at work because of the INSANE STRESS of my brain being made of crazy! And did I mention the part where THE WISDOM TEETH OF DOOM THAT WERE KIND OF HEALED IS NOW A GAPING WOUND AGAIN!? From CORN POPS!?
Things That Are Awesome:
1) calleigh_j WROTE JAKE 2.0 FIC! OMFG. Aaaaaa I am full of SQUEEE.
2) TEMPTATION ISLAND, with mystic_isles000, who is hilarious. Totally Closeted Boy (Named Kaya!) on the show: "And then I was thinking about my girlfriend doing something wild with ANOTHER GUY-" Gira: "And that made me want to do something wild with another guy!" We've been watching too much Playing It Straight.
3) CORN POPS OF DOOM. Aughhhh! They are so TASTY. And yet LETHAL.
4) I have a plan to combat depression with girl-powered Zen! It is a Good Plan!
5) ... MY RATS ARE CUTE!
"Helloooooo," says Thora.
Okay, I personally find Princess Di Eyes kinda freaky, but cuteoverload and Thora disagree. This was an attempt at a close-up for craigslist, but we couldn't bear to part with her. Little did we know that two weeks after this she'd become a teenager who shrieked like a banshee when picked up and hid under my dust ruffle for a day and a half. (Edit: I stared at this picture for a while because that doesn't really LOOK like Thora, and determined that it's actually T'Pol, and therefore doesn't really belong in the Thora's Big Day photo essay. OH WELL, still cute.)
Thora: "Ooh, Mason-Dixon Knitting!"
Rat in the back: "RUN before she starts covering the Comfort Shelves (tm) with Log Cabin Afghans!"
Thora: *tentative nibble*
Rat in the back: *omg stuck*
"Actually, I think I prefer Knitting In The Old Way. Wait, was that back when rats were feared for being spectres of witches? Because I'm about to enter my teenage phase of shrieking like a banshee and hiding under your dustruffle, and I need an emo edge."
"Hey lady, your nose is too far from your hand!"
"Muuuuuuch better." *snuggles*
