You should be careful about the feelings you try to bury, because something might try and grow.
(His name is Kerrigan, he’s from a indulgent side blog I have and he’s basically an undead mummy who is a butler/bodygaurd/the multiple roles that the Phantomhive servants do in Black Butler and he has a sappy crush on one of his employers.)
The Flowers are Purple Gladiolus which are often given as a symbol of ‘you pierce my heart with passion’ because Gladiolus means sword
October 4, 2020 | Boy, Were We Wrong About the Human Body! (2015)
I read Boy, Were We Wrong About the Human Body! (2015) by Kathleen V. Kudlinski and illustrated by Debbie Tilley. This picture book for children is about some incorrect ideas humans have had about the body. It begins with the Ancient Egyptians and, broadly, the mummification process (which, according to the timeline, began in 3500 BC). “The Egyptians thought the secret of who we are, our thoughts and personality, come from our hearts. Boy, were they wrong!” Rather we now know that although our heart is a very important organ, it is our brain that is the centre of thought and that trauma to the brain can affect personality.
The text also mentions Hippocrates [400 BC] and his explanation that the body is made up of four fluids: blood, phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile, and Plato’s explanation [in 380 BC] that eyes shoot out rays that gather images of objects.
In the fourth screenshot, the text begins with “Long, long ago, Egyptians did not know much about the human body.” I don’t feel comfortable with this statement. Perhaps they really didn’t know “much” about the body, but, in reference to the mummification process, they knew enough to remove organs and place them into separate canopic jars, the process of putrefaction and how to halt/prevent it (i.e., removing organs and stuffing the body with natron [salt] to dry it out), and how to remove the brain through the nasal cavity instead of cracking open the skull. I think that’s quite a bit. I’d be curious to learn what their equivalent to today’s medical doctors did when someone had a stomach ache or a broken bone… Herbal remedies? Casts?

The day I won a Charlatan APA by Maplewood Brewery was a dark day. Because rain. I was approached by a man so old his wrinkles remember what sandwich Franz Ferdinand was eating when he got shot. Or, those wrinkles would remember if not for their Alzheimer’s. This man, this unwrapped mummy, this aged lump of elephant skin wore a top hat with the name ‘Hassenfeld’ embroidered on the band and a trench coat. He may have - age playing a role - forgot to wear clothes under the coat. I did not probe, some things are better left unknown. Long story short, he wanted to play gin rummy for the Charlatan, I shuffled the cards until he fell asleep, then quietly left with the beer.
Scientists examine a 15-year-old girl who lived in the Inca Empire, then was sacrificed and remained frozen for 500 years….
Unearthed in 1999 from the 22,000-foot summit of Mount Llullaillaco, a volcano 300 miles west of here near the Chilean border, their frozen bodies were among the best preserved mummies ever found, with internal organs intact, blood still present in the heart and lungs, and skin and facial features mostly unscathed. No special effort had been made to preserve them. The cold and the dry, thin air did all the work. They froze to death as they slept, and 500 years later still looked like sleeping children, not mummies.
This is “the maiden” and she is extraordinary. After a CAT scan or two it was determined that she had tuberculosis. Do you know what this means?!?!? It means that tuberculosis was a preexisting condition and not initially brought over to the Americas by Europeans.

Now, obviously I have been away since the Tumblr change, but I felt it was needed to pop back on here for a little while.
At this point, we’ve been dealing with COVID, electoral lead up, restrictions/extreme lockdown; uncertainty and a lot of non sense for the better part of 10 months (about 260 days, if you can count that high!).
This year had affected every one of us, and we’re all dealing with our problems however we can. This is probably going to be the new normal for a while. There’s a lot of adjustment to be made.
One thing I will say, for as long as I can be here, I’ll keep this blog safe, soft, inclusive and open.
So show me your DIYs, your art, baking, animals, fun stories or whatever else that’s getting you through the craziness of 2020! Let’s spread your happiness out, and help those that might not have found that happiness to keep pushing them through.
Finished my Monster Mash Flight Piece for @ghostcon2020! I’ll be posting the finished piece on the 30th 🌙 🧙♀️
