is it too late to add some black ballerina magic for blackout?

Excerpt from Robert Garland’s “Joplin Dances”, staged and coached by Tai Jimenez

Anyway when I was a wee slip of a lass and made my first account on Neopets I went to make a shop (because I had so many mega rare omelettes that I was convinced I could make a fortune off of) and I saw the thing that said “you have [however many] characters left” under the box where you write out the shop description and I thought that you were required to fill up the entire space, like 5000 characters or whatever.  So I sat there for like twenty minutes just keyboard smashing to try and meet the quota so I could make my shop and so my shop description was just line after line of nonsense basically


Wolf and Artemas have been like, yeah, yeah, you think there should be shelves everywhere.

Well Ladies and Gentkemen, I present to you A Closet With Enough Shelves.

This is NOT what I set out to do today. I was going to 2nd coat Josiah’s accent wall and paint B’s dresser & desk while she wasn’t here underfoot.

Instead I shopped, put up the friggin’ towel rack TWICE, then put up all the shelves in our closet and put everything IN the closet. But in so doing, I eliminated 22 boxes out of our bedroom and all the hanging things out of the living room.

In the second pic, in the shadows under the hanging things, there’s a large tapestry suitcase that still holds the majority of Wolf’s things that need to be hung up.

In the very back corner behind the clothes there are 10 quilt fabric bins stacked up that may temporarily go to storage instead. All those big round things in bags are motorcycle helmets (very important!)

I feel quite a bit less like I’m living in a warehouse.

Squib seems to think that pot = bugs.
He’ll be so disappointed.

Fyi, I don’t expose any of my animals to any marijuana products/smoke (I cover their tanks and have the window cracked, along with a smoke buddy to prevent any smoke from lingering and while I remain near just the window), this is the only time I’ve held him while cleaning out my box of bottles/jars.

@clarabraxton I don’t want you to ever forget it or doubt it. -pulling a small box out of my pocket, setting it in your hands- Make an honest detective out of me?

I'll Guard it With My Life

I stole your heart and wrapped it in tissue (lapis blue) with an embroidered ribbon tied around then placed into a shallow box made out of wood, engraved with a message only for you. The box is locked with a key so small, and I’ve hidden them both in separate homes you’ve never heard of. Cemented into a glass security cabinet painted black and dipped in wax, don’t ask. In a secret room, bolted and chained, filled with balloons immune to popping amusing the guard who hums a tune with an everlasting stamina, and a magic supply of food. I placed it into an iron wardrobe infested with hornets frozen in an ice block that never melts attached to an eight-armed monster that licked the ice. Outside of the room lives a pack of rabid dogs in a cage suspended by the high ceilings covered with motion sensitive blades coated in venom. An acid bath for countless greedy crocodiles just below, all packed into a larger than average house that’s been erased from any map and my own mind but I’ve written it down on a tissue that I shot into space in a capsule I can track with a fingerprint. So if you want it, you’ll have to get through me first.
