The opossum I found dead in the woods this winter is mostly cleaned… and weird.

It’s got a couple small holes in the skull, and the roots of almost all the teeth are showing. (I have the teeth that fell out in a container.) And the sagittal crest is kinda weird, too. Like it was squished down a little toward the snout…

Comparison shots with another opossum skull I need to finish cleaning.

shadyufo skelelegs The holes in this opossum skull reminds me of the ones you guys have! Would it be considered pathological because of that?

Relient K? I can’t stand them.


Yo yo yo I was tagged by p-h-a-n-e-s-t-h-e-t-i-c-s, averyiscoldpizza, and moriartys-maitresse to do the 20 beautiful people challenge! Thanks guys ^_^

I tag:


“I wanna be an elf princess!”
“Nah mwahahaha just kidding I’m a derpy faced little hobbit.”

I was tagged by the lovely lady-arryn (thank you <3) in the 20 beautiful women challenge, so here have some selfies. If I understood correctly, the point is to just post a selfie or two and tag 20 women to do the same. So here we go:

captainjanek, ladybrienne, vavaharrison, sapphires-and-silver, xredriverx, aurete, eonbluenegative, ladyblackfish, infloressence, rattling-the-teacups, irhinoceri, wherewithalice, aganzir, caffeinosis, him-e, tirairgid, nightlilis, jaimebrienneonline, thebakerstboyskeeper and amiasaucepan

(Now, please don’t feel pressured to join in the selfie movement, I understand completely if you want to hide your face from the internet or if you hate being photographed even by yourself  - I hate it too - you are still an amazing superwoman. <3 But if you always wanted an excuse to post a selfie or if you don’t need excuses to post them, here you go! And if I misgendered you, please feel free to send me anon hate or constructive criticism…)

I think a lot about when Daine and Numair are at Haven in Lady Knight and you see their relationship in Kel’s eyes.

And just. Numair shows how much he loves Daine by flat out telling Kel about it. Like, momentarily losing himself in sweet but near melodramatic ranting about how much he misses and worries about her when they’re away “I feel like half of me is missing.”

Daine shows how much she loves Numair by hovering around him worriedly during a siege. By telling Kel - before flying off because she knows there’s war and business and other things to attend to and even if her lover is burnt out she can’t waste any time on that - to look. after. him.

Numair is a romantic. Numair’s affection is in words. Daine is practical. Daine’s affection is in actions.

And neither is stronger or weaker than the other. They love each other equally, even if they don’t show it the same way.

Inspired by the lovely thisloveisradiant, who gave me the idea and the motivation to keep writing for these two stubborn love birds. Be warned, this sort of ends abruptly. 

People were talking like he wasn’t there, people were acting as though he didn’t even exist. If this were anywhere else, he might have thought it a joke, but they were in the middle of a mission to catch a rogue strain. Said strain had unknown powers, but Fushimi worked them out pretty quickly, mind as keen as ever.

He was invisible.

That damned mischief of a strain had made him invisible.

He clicked in tongue.

This was going to be irritating, he thought, it was most likely that the only way to make him visible again was to get the strain to turn him back.

He groaned and tried to get the attention of his squad, flicking Awashima on the forehead only caused her to grumble and wave her hand in front of her face.

Then he smirked.

On the other hand, he could have a lot of fun with this.

Leaving the rest of the squad to continue to run around like headless chickens trying to catch the strain, Fushimi strode down the streets and away from the commotion.

He could have a nice holiday, all by his self, without anyone to bug him. The idea was pure bliss. He’d come back in a week or two and they’d have caught the strain by then, he’ll do whatever and then they’ll get the strain to turn him back. No big deal.

The smile that spread across his face was wide and did not suit him.

What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you…

this week I’m going to try to be superwoman and do the following:
-register for summer classes
-two job interviews
-volunteer at the children’s hospital (WHICH I am so unbelievably excited about because I’ve been thinking about pediatrics for a long time. Pediatric neurologist. That’ll be me. I love kids and I love brains and I can spend the next 3 hours talking about this. But I won’t because this will turn into an essay instead of a short list.
-squat 160
-do a long distance run on Sunday
-CPR certification?
