A gentlewoman and a scholar.
I sliced up my thumb trying to carve a dinosaur skull into a pumpkin this weekend. Draping my pumpkins in sexy lace négligée suddenly seems like a) a much safer idea and b) the best euphemism ever.
Helloooo Friday! I tried to carve a dinosaur skull into a pumpkin and it kind of looks how it's supposed to. If you squint a bit. And I only sliced open one of my own digits doing it!
Plans for the rest of the weekend: put sloe gin in everything.
ALSO ALSO a letter from my Pinpal arrived after a very long journey! Hooray!
Can't believe I've been at my new job for two weeks! And I just found the perfect house to move in to. I feel like a proper grown-up now, especially since I bought some hummus today.
This is just reminding me of how disappointed I was when I first listened to the Eagles of Death Metal.
Crazy week this week! I finished my degree, moved house, and start a new job on Monday. Pass me the wine!
@josiahg "Cultural penetration". Heh. Eheh.
EDIT: clearly I am not alone in my base sense of humour.
@parallel-lines Hear hear. I often wonder why it is that I'm programmed to find stubble so damn hot when I don't want it anywhere near my actual body. WTF, Biology?
AHHH what a week. Started looking at apartments in the area I'm moving to in a few weeks for work; can't wait to get out of this dump!
On a more miserable note: things are NOT GOOD with the manfriend. I'm starting to really struggle to enjoy spending time with him, and most nights I spend with him I lie there close to tears because I just feel so lonely. The worst thing is that he's not an awful person or anything like that; I'm just gradually realising that we're super incompatible in a lot of ways. I'm not even sure that Being In A Relationship is right for me at all. Doesn't help that I recently reconnected with a pants-blisteringly hot acquaintance who does an excellent job of reminding me what I'm missing. Gah.
I handed in my dissertation last week, and had done a damn good job of erasing the trauma of writing it from my memory until I saw this article. Oh well, back to the Scotch!
I cannot believe I've been missing out on fancy nuts my whole life. Fancy nuts!
