balls gone

Eevee got a new Jollyball for a late birthday present! This makes Jollyball number 4. This is the first with a handle though, and she’s already working on chewing that off. But she really loves it!

My deepest thanks to @titaniasfics for her help in betaing this story :) thank you so much, lady :)

the awesome art is done by the so gifted @akai-echo.

She comes every Friday afternoon, taking the girl with curly hair to her flute lesson.

Every Friday I watch as she passes before the windows of my class, talking to her daughter, laughing.

One day in September, I heard her laughter through the now-open windows, and I swear, i’ve never heard music so pure.

I know it’s pitiful. I know that i shouldn’t be completely infatuated with the mother of one of the kids we teach to, but I can’t help it.

Her husband is the luckiest man alive.

I am Fuming Mad.

This is a long ass rant but a kid literally attacked my dog so I need to write this all down somewhere so other people can be mad with me.


So I took Marvel into Petco to grab a few things and to practice heeling with distractions and leave it’s . He was being awesome . These 2 adult women come
in they looked alike so I’m guessing they were sisters and one of them had 2 kids a girl who looked 10/11 and a boy who was 5/6. They were horrendous children right from the start and the mom just wasn’t paying attention. Left them in the aisle with dog toys while they went off to get some litter boxes. The kids were screaming and beating each other up and ripping things off shelves and throwing them on the floor. The little girl petted Marvel without asking and the boy ran by shrieking “ewwww bad dog ” every time he saw Marvel or the other dog who was in the store . Marvel was getting cookies from me so he ignored the kid . But he really set the other dog (a young black lab mix) off he was running up and staring and yelling in its face and the dog was barking at him which was only making him scream louder . And the mom just wasn’t saying anything to her out of control brats . So bratty boy child decided he wants this big red ball and he puts it in the cart. Mom tells him he isn’t getting the ball and she hides it in an aisle. When the kid realizes the ball is gone he starts throwing a huge fit . He’s running around screaming “where’s the ball!” “You tell me where it is it’s my ball!” And causing a huge scene and again really setting off this poor black lab. At this point it’s borderline dangerous that this kid is running around scaring dogs . Judging by the labs body language if he got too close she was going to snap.

I get in line with my dog treats and I’m behind the 2 ladies and the little girl the boy is still off screaming about his ball in some toy aisle totally unsupervised. So the boy walks up because he finally found the ball he was looking for . He walks up kicks his sister in the shins and puts the ball in the cart. He yells at the black lab mix in front of him and the dog barks again. Still his mother is just blabbing away sipping her Starbucks and saying nothing. She occasionally told her kids to “stay here” but they weren’t listening and still ran off down the aisles . Mom is now telling screaming boy that he can’t have the red ball and needs to put it back. Girl brat takes the red ball out of the cart and tosses it on the ground. It rolls behind them and stops right in front of Marvel who goes to sniff it .

This is the part where things go horribly wrong . As Marvel goes to sniff the ball the kid screams , runs up and grabs Marvel by the tail pulling it so hard that he yelps. Kid proceeds to KICK MY PUPPY IN THE HEAD whilst still screaming . Marvel was just like wtf and backed up and the kid went for him again. At which point I put myself in front of my dog and grab the kid by his coat. He kicked me repeatedly still screaming “stupid dog I’m gonna get him” and his mom is just standing there looking at me. I went ballistic. I said something along the lines of “come get this fucking brat before I strangle him or he gets bitten” and I let the kid go and he runs off. And then I proceeded to berate her until she cried because I was so fucking pissed . I told her that most dogs would have bitten her kid and it’s her fault for not controlling him and her brats shouldn’t be in public if she’s not going to pay attention. The Petco cashier checked me out really quickly after that so I could leave. And then the kid got loose in the parking lot and was running around literally behind moving cars and he ran up to my car screaming and Pants barked and made him cry , that was the highlight of my evening . I am still shaking mad . Marvel seems perfectly happy and fine but holy shit how do people let their kids act like this ? It really could have become a dangerous situation if Marvel wasn’t as stable as he is .

What if, at Leaver’s Ball, when Simon and Baz have their whole kissy cute moment Dev just charges onto the dance floor and throws an Actual Temper Tantrum because FUCK YOU BASILTON I WASTED MY  ENTIRE CHILDHOOD PLOTTING AGAINST HIM AND NOW YOU’RE SNOGGING HIM IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE BLOODY SCHOOL
“Dev–”
WHEN YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO TAKE HIM OUT I THOUGHT YOU MEANT TAKE. HIM. OUT. NOT TAKE HIM OUT!”
Bonus: he has to be carried off the patio by the Minotaur, kicking and screaming

So I've had this idea that after the ball lefou and stanley don't really get a chance to see each other until a few days after cuz they were swept up in the chaos of everyone's celebration. But one day they finally bump into each other (probs at the bakery idk) and stanley (who's been trying all week to find a way to talk to him) just gets SO nervous. Like that smooth!stanley is long gone and left nervous!stanley to fend for himself

OHHHHHHH MY GOD

Yes, all the charm from the ball is gone and he keep fucking up Lefou’s name and Lefou is just there with this huge grin on his face and thinking how cute this guy is and just takes his hand to try to calm him down a little and also because he wants to hold his hand and Stanley just goes BRIGHT RED and keeps looking down at their held hands and finally Lefou is like “it’s a pitty you lost the dress, i rather liked you in it” and Stanley is fucking dying

So was that spoiler the only wrong spoiler? And If you had a chance to rewrite the finale, how would you rewrite it?

More or less, that was the only wrong one. And if I was able to rewrite the finale, and ONLY the finale episode, I actually might go with that ending for Stefan and Elena. It’s a plausible, logical way for the door to to be open for them, for Caroline to break away for Klaus, for Damon to be the brother that actually sacrifices something and for Stefan to finally get HIS happy ending somehow. 

I would also give Bonnie a way better ending, I would have brought Enzo back somehow, and I wouldn’t have just solely used her to save the world and then forgotten about her. I would have maybe had the witches give her Enzo back to thank her for what she did, or something of that sort. There have been plots with the witch spirits in the past where they did things like that to “balance nature”. 

I also would have made the finale 2 hours or a 2 parter and I would have let Katherine live up to the Queen she truly is. I mean this chick got sent to hell and then TOOK IT OVER, but in the last 25 minutes of the series, Stefan (a human) holds her down in front of hellfire and burns? You are telling me the girl who ran for 500 years from Klaus, the big bad herself, the master manipulator, actually didn’t have a plan A, B, C and D? It was so pointless. Her plot points were useless and only put in for fan service. 

I would have gotten rid of all the Vicki/Matt stuff because seriously happy Matt survived this long but I’m over Vicki and who cares about his Dad and Mom they were in like 1 episode. That took up way too much screen time. 

I defintely would have put Kai in the final episode with Katherine. Like that last battle would have been SO EPIC. It is the FINAL BATTLE OF THE SERIES!!! I would have gone balls to the wall. Oh, and after hell was destroyed I probably would have brought Lexi back, as well. 

4/12/17 - WOD

Today’s workout was “Fight Gone Bad”. It is a CrossFIt benchmark workout and today was my first time. For a benchmark workout it should ideally be done RX but I still need to scale a lot, so I had to make modifications to my level.

The workout was three rounds of:

- Wall Balls (6lb)
- Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (35lb)
- 20 “ Step Ups
- Push Press (35 lb)
- Row for calories
- 1 Minute rest

Each round was 6 minutes with ideally 1 minute at each station. I did a total of 172 reps.

The 6lb wall ball is starting to be pretty light. I asked my coach if I should move up to 10lb, but she said because my squats still aren’t below parallel I need to focus on getting lower. During the WOD, i definitely agreed. I do feel like I’m getting lower in my squats, but I can still feel that I am not getting low enough. I can also feel my chest fall forward, so I need to work on keeping myself upright the lower I get to the ground. I feel like I should practice them at home, to help get the form down. Maybe 10 a day, like my burpees.

Sumo Dead Lift High Pulls is something I’ve never heard of or done before. They were weird and fun, but I kinda liked it. For both SDLHP and Push Press I scaled down from 55lb to 35lb. Since they were already set up, I did give 55lb bar a shot and I could do both movements, but I didn’t think I’d be able to churn out more than 5 each a round. Coach said it was better to go lighter and aim to get 10 - 15 reps. I was still impressed that I cleaned and pushed pressed 55lb from the floor. I was not expecting that!!!!

Overall, I enjoyed this workout way more than I expected too. My coach joked I won’t like it so much when I can do it RX. I think I just have a preference for scoring reps vs scoring time. for some reason pushing myself to do as much as I can in a minute makes me work harder than trying to push myself to work faster. I’m not sure if my performance is better, but I seem to prefer WODs where the clock is running down rather than up.
