Poo. Lunch is over and I don’t wanna go back…but I’m not nearly remotely unhappy enough to skip out forever and go have wacky adventures. All I actually want is a nap.
Mmk, I like this AAMM idea, and it happens to be monday, so:
1. Tell me about your practice in 140 char or less.
2.How do you define magic?
3. Who do you worship? (Do you worship?)
4. For you, where is the dividing line between science and magic? Do you think the division arbitrary or flexible?
5. What kind of magic do you do on mondays?
Tagged: EVERYONE. I want to talk to all of y’all.
Doing stuff with things as my gut instructs me.
Magic is. I don’t really define it, or if I do I define it too loosely to be useful. It’s what happens when you influence things through means which don’t seem like they should work, but there it is anyway.
Lilith. Hermes is more so my boss that I do non-worship stuff for. Lately Djehuty has been sharing a lot of my tea at work and that’s cool too (because secretary stuff is kinda scribey, yeah?).
Science can be measured. Science by definition can be replicated. It’s results-driven and has a standardize methodology. You can certainly apply all that to magic, but I generally don’t. My paradigm sees a lot of one-shots and luck.
Well, just now I’m having a bath so hot my head is sweating, and I do love me some bath magic. Nothing really special to Monday though.
Okay, over 5000 words. Which evidently only used up two bullet points from the outline.
Basically if this keeps not sucking I’ll just publish the damned thing on Kindle.
I WANT TO HEAR PEOPLE’S CRAZY D&D STORIES
THE MORE DWARVES IT INVOLVES THE BETTER
Well first, if you haven’t heard the dead alewives D&D skit go listen:
Okay so it’s right before my first D&D game with these…
Oh yeah. It’s there. And still wacky.
"Thank you for calling ___, this is [Lunar]. How may I assist you?"
"My name is ___ and I want to speak with ___."
"Okay…" I’m typing some notes so I can let the requested person know who’s calling and what it’s regarding. I’m about to actually say something more intelligent when she cuts me off.
"Why you say okay? What okay even means? You should say ‘One moment while I transfer you’ or ‘I will see if she is available.’ Okay mean nothing. I don’t know what you mean by okay."
…wow, lady, sorry about your hemorrhoids you definitely have from being so incredibly anal-retentive, jeez.
Haha I’m working 9-5 all this week.
Whose idea was this
oh yeah it was mine I volunteered bah
WHY DID I NOT SEE THIS SOONER AND WHY DID IT COME TO ME IN THE PARKING LOT OF A SAFEWAY
This isn’t really that special but if you like pumpkin and kinda warm-tasting foods, you can toast any kind of waffle or toast or pancake, and spread peanut butter on it, and then top it with ground allspice and cinnamon, along with pumpkin pie spice. It’s really warm and pumpkin-y depending on…
Be careful about gnawing on bones though, especially poultry. For the same reasons you should never ever give cooked poultry bones to your pets: they splinter and can cause serious gastrointestinal perforations if swallowed. Which means you fill your gut with holes and have to have a shitload of emergency surgery. And you may not even survive if you get infected. Feel free to Google this if you have a strong stomach, pun very much intended.
If you really really gotta gnaw on some bone, like, get a soup bone from the butcher, use it for soup, or just boil it, and gnaw that — beef won’t splinter as much and is therefore much harder to accidentally swallow. Or ribs. Gnaw a T-bone. Whatever. But use beef or pork.
Or look up a recipe for roast marrow. Or get those precooked frozen chicken strips from Trader Joe’s so the splinters are just meat anyway. Or if only poultry bones will scratch your itch — chicken feet at a real Dim Sum place.
But for the love of shit don’t just crunch down on any old bones willy-nilly. Your kintype doesn’t mean you can suddenly digest bones and you almost guaranteed will hurt yourself, potentially very badly.
