Where Am I

He’s moving back.

I feel like my store’s target toy demographic is changing this holiday season.

Getting back on track with some things.

Do not adjust your browser, major websites are “slowing down” to save Net Neutrality

Sept. 10 has been designated as a day of “Internet Slowdown” in the Battle for Net Neutrality. All day, prominent websites and organizations — from the ACLU, WordPress.com, Vimeo, Meetup and Kickstarter — have added messages to their websites asking visitors to contact their lawmakers and the Federal Communications Commission in support of net neutrality.

Dios De Los Muertos Thresh!

LMAO my ingame screenshot mockups are laughably horrible. But hopefully, you are enchanted as much as I am by the idea of a happy mariachi skeleton band.

This looks so ridiculously cool!

Water Bottles

A few weeks back I saw a post/reblog by Coelasquid about the drought issue in California and how bottled water isn’t helping in the slightest.

Since I work in retail, the next day I went into our massive cooler and browsed through the 40+ bottles of sparkling and regular water that we carry, and about 35 of them were bottled in CA. I usually bought a bottle of water at work each day, but seeing all this worried me and made me want to make a change.

So, I did the simple thing and bought a regular water bottle.

Roomie M already has a Brita filter pitcher so refilling my bottle just requires me to be more on-the-ball about making sure the pitcher is filled after each use. Since buying the water bottle, I’ve both saved money and I noticed I’m drinking waaaay more water than before. I’m still 3.5 months soda-free and have even stopped drinking juice (just haven’t bothered buying it), but I don’t think I was hydrating myself enough and this water bottle has changed that! I’m noticing good changes within myself.

Basically: got educated, made a positive-if-small change, and all for the best! Thanks to Coelasquid for broadcasting. :D

BABBUS

Man my tomato plants look really sad all cramped up like that. They’re even in cardboard boxes like super hobos. (It’s to keep them from falling over since they’re so top-heavy.)

Luckily I went to Walmart the day before and turns out all their pots are ON CLEARANCE so I picked up eleven of them for about $8. SOON, my tomato plant babies will not be pathetically cramped together.

So yeah, they’ve grown a whole bunch. Still haven’t gotten any tomatoes, but with how long it’s taken me to get them into proper potting I don’t know if I will. They’re flowering, which is good, but it’s going to get cold soon.

Because of this, I decided to test making TOMATO CUTTINGS because cuttings are great. (It’s where you cut off a portion of a plan and either put it in water, or dirt with a growth food powder in hopes of it taking root) and IT IS WORKING. I’m gettin’ roots aw yeah.

This means I will have all the plant babies.

All of them.

I also made some basil cutting but I don’t know how successful those will be. They haven’t withered and died which I would’ve expected by now, but I don’t see any roots yet.

But yeah so this is the current state of my weird year of gardening. At the very least I’m now super equipped in knowledge (and pots) to make things more successful next year.

Doing something is better than doing nothing

NOVEMBER

Man November is so close IT IS ONLY TWO MONTHS AWAY and I am the most excited because it means Morgan will be back for the month and I’ll get to spend Thanksgiving week with him and his family again and omg it’s gonna be so great.

We’re gonna go to the aquarium this time and I’LL HAVE MY PHONE SO PICTURES WILL BE INTENSE.

Since I won’t be visiting him until the end of his stay we might try to meet up for a day or two before then and stay at a hotel near Seattle or something. Not definite on that, but it’d be cool.

(This was the big news I had from like six months ago.)
