The O. J. Simpson murder trial had always interested me, so when the new miniseries, "The American People V. O.J. Simpson" popped up on Netflix, it was a must-watch. I'm about 2/3 of the way through. It's been really interesting watching the stumbles and failures of the prosecution, combined with the smarmy evil combined intelligence of the defense, as the case progresses. Warning: we know how this ends; it's a tragedy.
Has anyone here seen Black Mirror? I started an episode but it seemed pretty downer.
I also re-watched The Shining (on Netflix) and now re-reading the novel to compare differences first-hand.
hey perhaps more importantly I GOT AN ETSY STORE OPEN AGAIN
Got 9 listings up as of this AM but something like 5 additional book styles/covers need to be added before my total inventory's represented. What I'm saying is hit that F5 through the day and through tomorrow too and get me some pagevyaaas. Spend some money. Spam people with my link.
And in May I'll have a vendor table at a little local art hall event one of the bars I like holds every month. That is far scarier than the Etsy shop, fwiw. But I'm committed. Eek.
Last night my sister and I made a deal. She'd help me get weed but then I had to go out to the bar with her. Last call here is 12:45 (or 1 if you're pushing it). We got to the bar at 12. I managed to put down three ref-style (heavy) doubles in that time, made a friend who taught me how to play a game called "Odds are," and in my first try I won the bar's bar game: throw a small metal ring (affixed via string to the ceiling) onto a nail in the wall and get it to hook. I felt such a success I gave my new friend, who'd given me one or two aiming pointers, a high-five. Then, in typical exuberant refugee fashion, I even jumped for joy.
While I was mid-air my new friend, unthinkingly, swung a foot out and intercepted me. By the feel of it, intercepted my ankle, specifically. I went down! I can't remember a drunk wipeout since the summer of 2013 when I happy-houred too hard and got caught in the bike rack outside the next-door convenience store and landed on my back in very bright sunshine some time embarrassingly before 5 to be wasted.
Thankfully, with a guy on either side of me, I was coming back up before I really felt the hit of the floor. My new friend also insisted, both to me and later to my sister, apparently, that he definitely kicked me and that it wasn't just the rum's fault I went down - maybe it wasn't even the rum's fault in majority.
Then I tweeted something I thought was exceedingly clever and proceeded to send it to like, 15 people in my phone. (I'm looking at you, you know who you are.) Because I needed validation of how funny I am. Then I walked 1.5 hours on my bum ankle and finally found a caring place to crash in town, as was wise.
My nights are rarely ever so epic as this and especially when they are Tuesdays. Sharing.
I am a crazy cat mom and I have a running water fountain for them. Zeke loves running water (runs to the bathroom whenever he thinks anyone is going to turn on the shower) and used to even shower with me as a kitten. I've read cats in general prefer running water and because of my experience with Zeke I just knuckled under and went for the fountain. (If I turn off the fountain after a few days Zeke gets really, really aggressive about chasing down running water sources. Also, my parents spoil him (turn on the tap for him in the bathroom) which hasn't improved his insistence.)
I have heard wet is bad for their teeth, potentially?
I had a roommate with a cat who developed hives if she ate non-grain-free food.
Yeah, my two cats try not to be obvious about it but both follow me around the house. Like, it's not just magic making them appear in whatever room I'm in after 5-10 minutes elapsed.
Zeke comes running to the door when I come home :) He sleeps next to me, sometimes on top of me, all that good stuff. Ruth is a little more reserved but not too much. She gets very friendly in the morning. I am convincing her that she likes laps too.
They took out my grandmother's tumor and now she doesn't have cancer anymore. To compensate, my mom totaled her car (now bringing the number of my immediate family members who have totaled 2+ cars up to 3) and my one cousin who's my age and has had a serious on and off heroin problem since before I started smoking pot has been disappeared for two months. Don't worry, cops are on it.
I mean, if I'm going to go to a funeral that's not my grandmothers, I can admit one for the long-time heroin addict with a criminal record who used to rob her family for drug money because she knew they wouldn't call the cops on her is, well...at least a predictable option.
PM sent. Btw, anyone else interested enough to seriously inquire - right now my goal is simply "make backstock to sell," which also means that I have nothing to stop me from dedicating efforts to commission projects or, in other words, any sure sale.
