    • yeah it would suck if i'd been relieved

      i was inspired by the frugal thread, before it turned into a stocks thread, to experiment in saving some water and electricity by handwashing a vintage blanket i have. it smelled a little stale and i didn't want the washer to tear it. so some arm and hammer laundry powder and some liquid soap i got off vitaost and hot water and some soak/swish time in the tub and the tub looked like it was pee water

      ...grosssss

      ...that's what stale looks liiiiiiike

      if this goes well i'll try some regular clothes next. but i did stick it in the dryer, i don't have a dedicated laundry drip dryer set up. and with the wash and 2 rinses i used 1 tub of water. i was mentally figuring out a set up where i could save even more water by draping the blanket over a rail or something and spraying it with a hose

      that just seemed more efficient

      now that i've learned a new trick i hope i'm not trying to turn into one of those people who never flush and take 5 minute showers while simultaneously washing dishes in there. i'm not good at juggling, i'd drop everything

      i'm not even going to discuss food right now. i'm not eating a lot but i'm not eating at the optimum. spring rolls... spring rolls everywhere...

      i was talking about some of the stitch stuff i saw on pinterest and bay asked for a zombie something. i think i found it. he better like it or else i'll keep it

      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      • I hand wash a lot of stuff mostly because I hate the public laundry room at my complex. It's clean and all, it's just that I'm sure other people's cooties linger. I'm partial to my own cooties.

        I thought spring rolls were made with rice wrappers. Do you make your own? Inquiring minds want to know.

        Good to see you!

        • oh lord.. if i had to share a washer with a community of people my finally suppressed germophobia would drive me insane.

          and sadly, they are bought frozen. it started with me just wanting a not too terrible snacky food for a movie night and they dug their claws in me

          let's see... let's see... well, after a few weeks of 4-20*, today it's in the 50s. the windows are open. the world is ending. prepare your anus.

          back is very unhappy. laid on the floor last night, hurt. tried to get up, hurt. got up, hurt. today it feels like a block of wood. pills are taking the edge off.

          somehow cookie got a very large nettle tangled up next to his skin. thank god i'm not too fussy about how my dogs look, with choppy hair cuts. you know. who needs to look nice, right? he probably did it on purpose

          i'm still standing up from chairs like i'm squatting, can't hurt might help

          • Googling to edumacate myself on anus prep. The temps went to 73 here today. All the windows are open and both ceiling fans are going. I'ma lovin' it.

            The clutch of a snack can overwhelm. I've had to limit myself to one per month of an espresso chocolate muffin from a local baker. Today I thought I wanted something sweet so I bought a store bought chocolate chip muffin. Took three bites, made the icky face and threw it away. Apparently the local baker has me in her thrall.

            • the local baker adds that extra loving touch

              that loving touch is probably cocaine

              i'm seeing there is a thing called mega shark vs mecha shark. do i... do i watch this? i feel as though i should watch this. i feel... as though... my life will be enriched with the viewing of this cinematic spectacular spectacular

              some lady relatives made out like makeup bandits, and i am one bag closer to minimalist nirvana

              i tried out a mushroom bun burger. i believe my failure last time was in cooking the mushroom. my failure this time was only using one cap

              i got condiments all over my upper lip

              i only got a few hours of sleep, so i'm ready to lay down but that terrible movie is siren songing me

                  I came here from your fisting comment. Then I read down and was relieved to discover it's only the end of the world.
                  I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                  • pain is hovering at a 6.5. or 7. or 83. it's raining, a lot. i did want to get started on some work out stuff and crafty stuff, but now all i want to do is lay down and do my best slug impersonation

                    i got like a billion errands done. when i get all of them done in one day i feel productive as fck.

                    the dogs got wings and really fresh burger meat (thank you locally owned store, i love you and your big meat) and i got burgers wrapped in lettuce and frozen tyson wings that did NOT taste good. damn my inability to be overly wasteful so that i cannot just throw them out the back door and buy the good ones

                    the part of me that wants to buy pretty things to be happy is getting tested big time for the second month in a row. i held out last time, maybe i can this time too

                      I am sorry your back is being a big booger again! I wish I could send the Back Fairies to fix it but they are lazy bastards!

                      I think you need a sparkly tiara to wear when you want pretty things. I paint my toenails sparkly colors when I have that urge but it doesn't work so well when it is cold. Sparkly makes me happy.

                      Feel better!

                          No, but I'd want a bit more than the intermittent action than the Terrier is displaying.

                          • i tried not to see the pup's actions in a suggestive light but i failed

                            i blame television and video games

                            i have excessive feelings of hunger and occasional cramps less than a week after my period ended. i feel bad for my body, the things my poor food choices is putting it through

                            i like my dogs. i do not like their propensity to sneeze on me, especially since i mixed egg yolk into their burger last night.

                            it was easier to make better food choices when my guy was here to see me eat. i didn't even really want bready foods. i don't know why i'm so hung up on them now though and now there's a small skin tag on the under part of my arm. skin tags, for me, = insulin issues

                            boo, hiss

                            my tiredness has been all over the place. i sleep a few hours and can't sleep that night. i get a proper 8 hours and can barely keep my eyes open.

                            but on the up side i bought more vitamins

                            • i only thought i had come to terms with my guy being gone again, it turns out i had just numbed out on the feels which were vigorously brought back to life when bay told me his dream last night

                              now i feel all melty and slightly emotional but in a good way

                              you feel like home too

                              i've had 6 chicken thighs since last night. there was also tuna on a giant mushroom cap and tuna wrapped in lettuce and roast beef sandwiches because gramma shared and like a junkie looking for a fix i accepted

                              i'm weak and shameful. and weak. and sleepy... i couldn't sleep

                              and the wood the mailbox was screwed to finally gave up the ghost and crumbled the mailbox off into my hand last night so i duct taped it until i figure out what i'm gonna do. this is either pure southern can-do or pure southern trashery

                              • of course i'm gonna watch this. of coooouuuurrrrrssssssse.

                                we cannot turn against each other now, that is exactly what the beavers would want



                                food thus far; burger broccoli rice concoction

                                the dogs have been their in out in

                                i am legit concerned i will sink down to the waist if i step onto the ground

                                my nails are 3 miles long. perhaps i will cut them, or perhaps i will leave them so that bear may continue enjoying me scratching his little doggy butt cheeks with them

                                i was talking to mahm about crafty things and mentioned one of the things i wanted to stitch for bay and she got an amused smile on her face. that means she approves of my sense of humor. mwahaha.
