cheerful, amoral, slightly unhinged female character: exists
He explained his reasoning to me when he got home.
1. I would initially think “what the fuck” and be distracted from the anxiety. (Correct.)
2. The cold of the ice would shock my system, bringing me back to the physical world and reality, drawing my focus to the cold in my mouth, and keep my brain away from thinking “I’m panicking, I must be dying.” (Correct.)
3. He assumed I hadn’t drank much water today and wanted to keep me hydrated. (Triple correct.)
I was just about to spiral into a bad panic attack, and my boyfriend goes “Stick an ice cube in your mouth.” I’m not really sure where he got the idea, and I kinda laughed at it because I didn’t see how it would help, but he was insistent. So I did it.
And now I’m on my second cube, because it worked.
I planted some saguaro seeds about a week ago. Who woukda thunk that such large lads start out so smol. (submitted @nolayelde)
this speaks for itself when paired with a pic of the grown plant for scale:
they usually live to be 150+ years old. cutting one down in Arizona, where they’re native, is a felony with a maximum 9 months in prison.
in my brief wikipedia exploration to find out how old they could be for this ask i found out that there was a dude in 1982 who was vandalizing one (which is also highly illegal) by shooting at it and then poking at it, and not only did the 500 pound arm of the cactus he was shooting at fall on top of him, but the actual trunk of the cactus then also proceeded to fall on him. he died. smited by the cactus gods for his transgressions
There was one we had in our backyard that fell on our fence and buckled the steel bar. When the guy came by to take it away he sliced into roughly foot long segments and we kept one. It was really cool in the inside, also the chlorophyll is on the inside. My mom turned the outer layer into a lampshade
Sorry it’s dusty lmao no idea how to clean it
i…………..idk how to react to this but this is definitely an item i wasn’t expecting
here’s another fun fact about saguaro cactuses (or cacti - both are fine!): when they die, the flesh on them erodes away and leaves these really cool wood-like structures
they’re called bones. these are cactus bones
So my parents suspect I’m nonbinary because *gestures vaguely at all of me* but they won’t just ask me about it so I’ve just been watching them gently test me over the last couple years. But last night was by far my favorite.
My dad, unable to look me in the eye, stumbled as he asked me if I would want a full length kilt or a knee length kilt.
These are the two genders folks
I am not excited for any of these storylines and now my interest has plummeted with the fact that Nelle is out.
Yes, prisoners should have normal human rights and I do believe in prison reform BUT NELLE AND SHILOH GOT MARRIED IN PRISON??? AND HER FOGHORN LEGHORN ATTORNEY THOUGHT THAT WAS A DOPE IDEA????
Y’ALL ARE DOING OSCAR SO DIRTY BY LETTING NELLE GET HER SCRAWNY FINGERS ON HIS ELQ SHARES. THAT BOY DID NOT FIGHT CANCER FOR THIS SHIT.
I have pneumonia rt now but reading “foghorn leghorn” made having a wheeze attack worth it.
Can confirm via lived experience. I’m known for my sweet tooth and consuming a LOT of sugar daily, which never seemed to affect my ‘energy’ levels the way people say kids get hyperactive on sugar. It in fact simply helped me be steadier.
Since I started taking ADHD medication, my cravings for sweet snacks have gotten down to almost zero, except if I need to make a specifically mentally challenging task. Wish I knew this before I only sought diagnosis past 30 years old…
Oh yeah, this is a hell of a thing. Years before my diagnosis I used to snack hardcore on chocolates and particularly candy whenever I was writing and insisted it ‘helped me think’. Turns out that yup, that was my ADHD brain demanding sugar for the dopamine machine to help me pay attention.
(These days I just keep a bottle of high-glucose sports drink handy and slowly sip my way through it when I need to focus instead of slamming back whole packets of Nerds.)
Y’all I just learned that unusually high sugar and carb cravings are a symptom of dopamine deficiency
If you’re adhd and experience a deep and all-encompassing urge to eat cake at least five times a day boy do I have news for you

Okay but like
The absolutely scalding commentary on the fact that a robot who doesn’t feel emotions is better at being a partner than most men because he actually fucking changes diapers and is emotionally available
I love this movie
The clown, after sucking me off, proceeds to pull the multicolored rags out from my weenie while I clap in joyful glee
Hey cid this is a post
I then proceed to smack the clown’s ass, giving off a loud distinct honk that’s only heard when clapping the ass cheek of a clown in heat

If this resonates with you at all PLEASE, for your benefit, go read this tweet thread on “fawning”
Oh my god i finally have a word for it….
There’s such enormous power in naming and understanding things, isn’t there 🙏
The tweet author also made this into an article, available here.
Thank you for sharing that link!
Lots of peeps on this post have asked things like “so what do I do about this?” which the twitter thread gets into but I know many will find the article more readable and it expands further and has additional resources. Check it out!
