The Pumpkin house Kinova, West Virginia
He’s ready for the world.
I might die it’s so cute.
So, I hate the Roadhouse.
I put in an application at Target this morning, Brock left, I took a shower, and who would’ve thought that while I was in the shower Target called.
Like, what? I’ve never had a business call me so quickly after applying.
And, of course, I didn’t notice until 2 hours later and the lady had already left by time I called back.
Now I’m all shakey.
And nervous because now I have to wait until tomorrow to call back/she calls me back.
I hate talking on the phone.
Its the first of September.
That means I am getting married in 12 days.
Eh, I’m still not panicking. (Should I be?)
The only thing I’m concerned about is whether one of my bridesmaid will be there or not (because of personal issues that I don’t blame her for, but she really can’t plan ahead with them). I want her to be there more than anything, but it sucks because there’s really nothing I can do to help or to change her situation.
I still have decorations to make.
And a suitcase to pack.
And vows to finish. Goddammit.
petition for the next companion to not be a white girl in her 20s who crushes on the Doctor
petition for the next companion to be a grumpy chinese-american grandma who complains about plot-holes and knits the doctor horrific time-travel-themed sweaters to wear when she thinks it’s cold out (most of the time)
I just want a non-human companion. (That won’t crush on the Doctor.)
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
I need this house in my life.
22. Talk about your worst fear:
Oh, man. I think that would be being alone. I know, I’m an introvert and the majority of my time is spent by myself, but I afraid of having no one in my life. No friends or family to talk to when I need to.
32. Talk about a place you remember from childhood:
I remember, at my grandma’s old house, there was a little stream that ran through her backyard. I’d go down there all the time, look for salamanders or tadpoles or crawdads. I found clay down there once, and brought a hunk of it back. Or sometimes me and my sister or cousins would walk the length of it a little ways and my grandpa would come pick us up down the street were it ran under a bridge.
39. Talk about things you’d wish you known earlier:
I wish I’d known about budgeting earlier, how to keep track of my money rather than just not spending until I had enough.
I wish I had known I wanted a bakery when I started college so wouldn’t have to finish that computer crap.

Notice how often attractive words present themselves to define other beautiful ones, and note also how many of them are interrelated, and what kind of sensations, impressions, and emotions they have in common. Also, try enunciating beautiful words as if they were ugly, or vice versa. Are their sounds suggestive of their quality, or does their meaning wholly determine their effect on us?

I looked it up and it could be pretty much anything since potatoes have a lot if nutrients we need, like potassium and vitamin c and carbs and whatnot.
Or it could just be I really like potatoes and it’s been a couple weeks since I’ve had any. I forgot to buy some the last time I went to Aldi.
Oh, great, now I’m gonna be paranoid.
I’m gonna spend the rest of my night googling potato cravings…
I don’t know why, but all I want to eat the past two days is potatoes.
I just really want potatoes.
