Again, I sometimes wish I could tumblr better

but there’s something about here that makes me keep my guard up in certain ways. I can’t put too much of myself here. Even though there are some things I can put here but not anywhere else. It’s weird. 

Utu Noranti Pralatong, of “Farscape”. She is (in the show) well over 100 years old. She has dementia, can’t cook, won’t bathe, and falls asleep at random. She is also an utter and complete badass with a wicked sense of humor who unquestionably holds her own in the crew.

Buzzfeed has a poor signal-to-noise ratio in general but this one cracked me up so much.

How did I not find this before?! There’s an American Society for Crows and Ravens. Neat site about neat birds. I was looking them up because there are several flocks of crows that frequent my neighborhood. I love them. I am totally fine with them hanging out in my front yard (where there’s a big tree) and doing that thing where they sound like a British Parliament session. And I was curious about what to do if I ever found an orphaned baby crow.

Apparently they can be hand-fed without it hurting their ability to survive in the wild as long as you release them once they can fly (about 8 weeks of age). So that’s probably what I’d do if I found one, unless s/he was injured, in which case I’d contact a wildlife specialist-vet. 

A big reason I’m a Ravenclaw

…is because I absolutely *cannot* let a mystery go.

Needless to say, this can be both good and bad depending on context.

I was thinking about one of my favorite characters, and what I would do if I met her, and I realized I never did want to meet her. I just wanted to watch her do things. And that leaves her solidly in the ‘fictional character I don’t imagine as a real human being’ category, which I don’t know if it’s a failure to empathize, or as it should be.

Hmm, for whatever it’s worth I kind of feel the same way about a lot of actors. But in that case it’s mostly about figuring they get enough people trying to ‘meet’ then all the time and that means the nicest thing I can do for them is respect their privacy.

I just wrote out the word hella 102 times in the shape of a helicopter please love me

OMG this reminds me, when Anne moved to the Bay Area and everyone was saying “Hella” all the time, she half expected to see a big blimp go through the sky with the word “Hella” trailing behind it.  This reminds me weirdly of that.

HEEEE this is hilarious and yeah, that, exactly. And people still say “hella” out here but not quite as much as they did in the late 90s.

Cats = more like siblings than kids

Well, in Nikki’s case she feels more like a somewhat curmudgeonly great-aunt, but the younger three feel much more like siblings (or cousins, perhaps) than children to me. Just in terms of the way they negotiate space with each other and with me, and also how they smell, if that makes any sense.

I don’t mean gross bathroom smells, I mean that subtle smell their fur has when you bury your face in it as they’re trying to shove their head under your chin. They smell exactly like family, somehow.

Fey feels like a roommate.  Down to the intense sometimes physical squabbles over random shit.  I think she also thinks she’s my mother and I’m her big dumb kitten, but aside from that, it’s like having a grumpy old lady living with me, who continually tries to pull rank based on age mind you.

Yeah, I go back and forth between thinking of the cats here as roommates and as something more like relatives staying with me. The thing that feels “family-ish” is mostly related to the way they smell and the way they do the same kind of thing that my siblings and I used to do as kids, where everyone would be sort of smooshed together on the couch and it somehow didn’t feel like an invasion of personal space (and I’m super super super sensitive to that kind of invasion).

Any time someone asks me if “I’m too old for that”, I just direct them to Advanced Style.

!! This is awesome and I *absolutely* plan to rock the fun hair colours when I’m 50….60….70…etc. :D

There are two types of people..
(*the catpocalypse is nigh) 

Catwoman is the same as the second woman, but has a hot body suit

The second one actually totally looks like me trying to leave the house in the morning. :p
