Adventures

The sporadically shared life of a knitting, crocheting, baking, writing mommy who can't seem to want to grow up.

Some things

railehatesfun:

- No, I haven’t slept yet. I may not sleep at all, who knows.

- Went to the bank today. They refunded me only one of the two 36 dollar fees, but their doing that had nothing to do with Paypal fucking up and I’m still out 36 dollars. Incredibly ticked about that. More worried than ticked, really….

You might be able to do a counter withdrawal for a small amount add the back and get the gas station attendant to change a dollar to quarters for you. I don’t know, I hate things that require actual cash.

rapunzelie:

the concept of liking someone and them liking you back and you deciding to date each other literally just fucking baffles me because it has never once happened for me in my entire life

how are you all doing this

how are you people making it look so easy

how are you finding people who like you back and want to date you and then actually do it

My method was generally to have sex with them first and go from there. 

I got extremely lucky, don’t use my method.

So one of the things I have to keep in mind is the size of everything that goes in the book in order to help determine how big the thing actually is. Unlike a lot of the replications I’ve seen, I hope to use actual instant photographs.
I have noted, though, that a lot of the pics (like the ones in the header) are missing the telltale Polaroid space at the bottom. While it’s easily trimmed off, I might still look for another kind of instant camera that frames pics. The model pictured is the only Polaroid my family has, and I don’t even know if it still works. And I’m pretty sure the only way to tell is to buy film for it, and Polaroid film is stupid expensive. So, uh…we’ll see.

You could totally just instagram it. Instagram is the polaroid of the modern age. Also I think there are websites that will print polaroid style pictures from your digital files.

can you look up instructions online?
Probably, but it would be difficult for me to follow them. I have difficulty viewing someone doing a thing and following that thing with my own body parts. This makes…

I cannot tie a necktie either. I feel bad for my husband/son who will never have their wife/mother fix their tie for them because I have never learned this skill that I feel like everyone is expected to have and yet I’ve never had any reason to learn. 

If you’d really like to learn, this is the way I would do it: Print out one of those drawn step-by-step instruction sheets, tape it to your mirror, and stand there attempting to make it look like the pictures for as long as your fingers and patience can stand it. I plan to try it someday. Just because I feel like I should.

also can we talk about the fact that Clara Oswald doesn’t have to be “tough” to be brave

Like she is crying and shaking and openly admits that she’s terrified

but she still stands her ground and refuses to yield and trusts that the Doctor will come for her

and I just really appreciate showing that kind of strength because that’s not a kind of strength that gets portrayed a lot

Can we also talk about how she had a way out the whole time? But she stayed and waited until she could use it to save the doctor as well, even when she was passing out from holding her breath and didn’t know what would happen to her. Even when her life was threatened. I wasn’t impressed with the episode overall, but Clara Oswald is amazing.
