why dont wizards just do this if its this simple???
Okay consider this. Gatlin gun. But its wands
so trustworthy in appearance, and yet so duplicitous! you are the victim of a worldclass bamboozle! please, consult your insurance policy. you should have some financial coverage, but i am afraid your reputation may never recover.
that’s what I thought ma'am but her lawyer assured me she was legitimate:
my friend, this is a very common scam. this woman is well known to authorities for cat crimes, especially fraud.
This woman assured me I am authorized:
how did you get authority to give my cats cat crime permits?
i promise you he filed the paperwork with my office and he is just waiting for it in the mail
he does, in fact, not have a permit to be in the cat food pantry. i know this bc i issue those permits, and i have issued no such permit to this particular gentleman. if he might be so called.
he has a permit, leave him alone
sir, you do not belong there

(yes that meme is still funny)
As an artist, do you ever get pain in your hands? If so, do you have any tips on managing it?
Your ancestors would find you incomprehensible and your descendants will despise your grave.
this is by far the best compliment ive ever received
hugh jackman does everything to prove that he’s hugh jackman. he sings, he tap dances, and he has an australian accent.
the reveal at the end of the movie is that hugh jackman isn’t wolverine, but wolverine is hugh jackman. logan went into witness protection in order to retire from being a superhero and having an alternate identity as an australian actor who started his career in musicals was basically fool proof until wade blew his cover story
wade wilson kidnaps hugh jackman in deadpool 3 bc he’s convinced he’s actually wolverine. he spends the whole movie lugging him around but he’s literally just hugh jackman
Considering that Hugh Jackman exists in the Deadpool cinematic universe, this works in-canon quite well.
This is revealed, of course, when Hugh Jackman gets shot and killed just prior to the final battle, providing Deadpool with the emotional push that carries him to victory. After Deadpool finally defeats the Big Bad (somehow overcoming by himself whatever obstacle he thought he would need Wolverine for) he turns to see Hugh Jackman in the last stage of regenerating from being ‘dead’ and absolutely looses his shit about it.
Every morning should start with me reading something like this.
Item: Hat of the Tailor, +6 on skill checks related to the crafting of clothing or fabric. The needle may also be used as a small rapier.
I audibly gasped…. Want!
This is some big @gailcarriger energy right here.
Using this in reverse made me understand spell slots
oh wow fuck that’s a good metaphor
I mean it wasn’t mine i got it off tumbler dot org, but there are things that you can do seemingly an unlimited number of times per day, that don’t drain on your internal resources, and that make abled people think you don’t have chronic pain or fatigue or brain fog whatever because look, she’s writing her journal or whatever, surely she must be able to also do her homework, but maybe for you journal-writing is a cantrip, whereas homework takes a spell slot. And you only get a certain number of spell slots per long rest because they drain you in a more profound way, and you need to save one for cooking dinner and you already used one to walk to the store for milk. It’s a variant on Spoon Theory for nerds.
What was the metaphor OP?
She was like “this is gonna come up again I’m guessing?” And I was like yeah probably and she said “okay hang on” and started writing. Bless
Shoutout to my therapist she tries so hard to keep up with me. I explained the concept of spell slots vs cantrips as a disability metaphor to her and she took notes. On a pad of paper. About the spellcasting mechanics of dungeons and dragons.
This is not an exaggeration. Your download speed would slow down to the point where Windows would make this kind of absurd estimate, and you’d sigh and leave the room for a while (because you couldn’t use the computer while it was doing this for fear it would crash and lose all your progress) and then you’d come back in 40 minutes and maybe it would now say 52 years or maybe it would say 3 minutes, who knew, not Windows.
I can’t stop laughing, mostly because it’s so true
There’s a fascinating dichotomy I’m noticing thus far with the feedback I’ve had from people doing various bits of sensitivity and beta reading for Phangs, and that’s the chronically ill/disabled people calling Nathan’s conversation with his father at the start of the book as being “harrowingly familiar,” while people who are healthy and able-bodied find it “comical.”
And while there are parts of that dynamic that are intended to be bleakly funny (because gallows humor hasn’t so much been my crutch over these last few years but my entire mental life support system), it’s not meant to be farcical, which is what some of the non-disabled people are calling it. They think Nathan’s father is the comic relief; he’s overbearing and well-meaning, but ultimately harmless because he just wants the best for his son.
I even had one comment from someone that said, “this feels contrived. No one would ever say anything like that to someone they loved,” which then further goes on to say that Nathan is being “childish” and “difficult” in his response to his father’s attempts to “fix” his life by taking control of it.
Meanwhile, under that comment, I have seven others in floods of tears because they finally feel seen and recognize their experiences in a work of fiction, that just so happens to be predominantly about a disabled werewolf, his vampire boyfriend and their terrifying eldritch girlfriend, who save the day through their love of humanity and their willingness to do anything to save it.

These stray cats were spotted occupying the circle marks intended for the implementation of social distancing protocols in front of a store in Brgy. Holy Spirit, Quezon City on Sunday amid enhanced community quarantine.
Attached are 3 pictures of 3 cats sitting inside white circles painted on the sidewalk in front of vegetables for sale.

In no particular order, animal skulls, mineral/decorative spheres, real/replica/decorative eggs, statues/representations of Bastet, cat whiskers, My Little Ponies, Calico Critters/Sylvanian Families cats, graveyard/historical site earth, Monster High dolls, weird little found keepsakes picked up on various small adventures such as a screw or a pine cone or piece of wood or a matchbook.
Where’s my decorative sphere fandom at?????
if you don’t have @ least one collection of specific items i literally have nothing more to say to you. we will never relate to each other. however, you cool ass motherfuckers who do collect @ least one type of thing, reblog this post and say what that thing is. i’ll go first: clown dolls and good luck charms
I have theoretically practical collections like all the very specific paintbrushes I arrange and don’t use while I return to the same 4 brushes I paint everything with, and the 5kg of embroidery floss I also don’t use.
But i also like collecting bones i find and glass jars, and when the cats shed a claw thats perfect, I put it in a little jar with the others. I don’t know why, i just feel like I shouldn’t throw them away
