hang to dry

When does Kara find time to launder her super suit if she’s always wearing her super suit?

Does she hand wash it or use shared washer? (Pretty sure her place doesn’t have in-unit machines? Or does she?)

Does she hang it to dry?

Could it shrink in a dryer? … I guess it’s made to withstand damage. Maybe. What material did Winn use??? I can’t imagine he had access to tactical materials????

… I have questions.

I am very thankful CHB: Confidential is coming because last night @nerdyadventures and I were talking about this. Camp’s schedule that is part of the Ultimate Guide book.

Since most of the quest are happening during the summer, we don’t really know how camps go on during the rest of the summer, we got a few glimpses during The Lighting Thief and there are some mentions from time to time but here is the full schedule and I just want to say some things:

  • THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO LAUNDRY, I HAVE NEVER ACTUALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THIS, but it totally makes sense, they are at camp for months and they have a fixed schedule to do laundry.  I’m sure every cabin has a different one but like WHERE DO THEY DO THE LAUNDRy? Do they have a special place to dry everything or you are going to walk and see your other campers clothes hanging while being dry? THIS WOULD SUCK AND MAKE YOU THE TARGET OF SO MANY PRANKS AND REVENGE
  • Letters to home is probably the campers having free time because some of them might not want to write letters to their place or don’t have anyone to send.
  • WRESTLING. they have wrestling and omg, little Percy being beaten over and over and over and then not so little Percy being able to win matches. 
  • You bet your ass Percy and Annabeth both have strawberry picking at the same time.
  • STORE CHECKS. I KEEP FORGETTING THEY HAVE A STORE. How do they even pay for it!? Like WHERE DO THEY GET THE MONEY? Do they have to do inventories, is the Hermes cabin even allowed to do inventories? 
  • If a cabin is in charge of an activity, how do they work around that plus having their own schedule? Do cabin counselors have a different one since they are probably in charge of the activities? 
  • Does cabin leaders go and negotiate their schedules to Chiron? “Look I don’t mind teaching swordfight 3 hours non-stop, but you gotta take me out of firework making”

Can May 2 come already and have the book released because I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS 

Apothecary Lesson #2: Drying your herbs

     Guess who’s back, back again? Davide’s back, tell a friend. Either way, hello everyone, and today, we’re getting a little old-fashioned. Like real old-fashioned. Like, pioneer witch old, y’know? That’s right kids, we’re drying our own herbs, and I’ve got three methods for each herb-drier out there: The “I’m, like, totes a wiccan,” The “Well, this should work faster,” and then the “This better goddamn work.”

Method One: Oldest

What You’ll Need:

  • Herbs, tied with twine
  • Twine
  • Thumbtack


  1. You’re going to tie a piece of twine to the thumbtack, and attach the other end of the twine to the herb bundle. 
  2. Push the thumbtack either into the wall or the ceiling to hang them. 
  3. Let dry for 6-12 months (Keep in dry, warm room, and if you’re harvesting seeds, you might want to wrap your herbs in cheesecloth first) 

Method Two: Nature n’ Shit

What You’ll Need:

  • Herbs to dry
  • Table to place herbs on
  • Glass to put over herbs (and something to support the glass so it doesn’t touch the herbs) 


  1. Place herbs onto the table, and spread out so as to not have the herbs touch each other. 
  2. Put table into the sun, and place the glass panel over the table
  3. Let dry in direct sunlight for 12 hours (until brittle) 

Method Three: Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That

What You’ll Need:

  • A Microwave
  • Paper Towels
  • Herbs to dry


  1. Place your herbs in a thin layer on one paper towel, and lay another paper towel on top of that. 
  2. Place into your microwave, and cook on high for one minute. Let rest for thirty seconds. Then microwave again for thirty seconds–you will repeat a series of rest for thirty seconds then cooking for thirty seconds
  3. The herbs should be dried after approximately 10-15 minutes

Well… that was fun, right? Either way, thank you for reading through this, and I hope you guys stay tuned for the next installment of “Apothecary Lessons.” Talk to y’all later :) 

The answer to a young witch saying, “Okay, so how do we fly?” isn’t, “Haha, you’re so silly, witches don’t fly!” It’s hours cramped over your grandmother’s notes. It’s foul and sickly sweet herbs hanging to dry. It’s animal fat bubbling down in a cast iron. It’s an iron knife on a hardwood board. It’s a broom, made with straining fingers and sedge, handed over with care. It’s ointment aging in the dark. It’s rough fingers on goosebump covered skin under the black moon. It’s a stomach howling its displeasure at its empty state as flesh goes heavy and limp. It’s a soul, spiraling free into the sky. And it’s waiting, singing softly by their slumbering body, til they return with the dawn.


“In the morning,” she said firmly, “you go.” A responsive beep acknowledged her decision. “Fine, you’re welcome.” Another beeping, which made her laugh. “Yes, there’s a lot of sand here. Beebee- Ate? Okay. Hello, Beebee-Ate. My name is Rey. No, just Rey.” Still more beeping, and her smile disappeared. “Look, you’re not going to talk all night, are you? Because that won’t work. You know how humans recharge. We don’t plug in: We sleep.” A second acknowledging squeal. “Good. Keep that in mind and we’ll get along ’til morning. Quietly.” A single beep left hanging in the dry desert air, they disappeared behind the dune. - Star Wars: The Force Awakens novelization.

Imagine:Living with the Salvatore Brothers after your house is damaged and they are constantly arguing.

“Oh, I’m sorry, your tone implies that I’m actually supposed to care?"Stefan shot back at his older brother.

Damon growled and called out your name.
"Y/nnnnnnnnnnnnn"he stretched out your name.

You walked past the two brothers with a basket full of their clothes ready to hang them out to dry.

"Sorry prince of darkness, that point goes to Stefan, your argument is invalid this time"you answered as you walked past the two vampires.

"God damn it y/n"Damon rolled his eyes and sped to his room to sulk whilst Stefan sat on the couch with a smirk plastered onto his face.

How to clean your binder

Binders get icky really fast and you need to clean them often to make sure they don’t smell bad or make you uncomfortable or irritate your skin. So, first of all, you gotta fill a sink, bucket or a bathtub with either half a cap or a capful of soft laundry detergent (depending on how clean your binder is and how big your binder is) and warm water (I use Daz personally mainly because that’s all I could find). Then once your water is nice and soapy, put your binder in and start rubbing it. Make sure you do this so that everywhere is clean. I’d recommend turning it inside out once the front is washed. Then, take your binder out of the water and run it under the faucet with some warm water to get all the soap out so it doesn’t irritate your skin. Repeat this process until your binder is clean. The drying process can be done several ways. You could hang it out to dry (probably the safest method), put it on the radiator, or if you’re impatient like me, hang it up in your closet and blow dry it… I wouldn’t recommend this if your binder fits you well as it can shrink it.
Now your binder is clean!
Hint: it’s best to not machine wash or tumble dry because the binder is likely to shrink, tear or wear.
I’m here for you fam. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

This is dedicated to my new love. Not you because no I did not love you. I loved how you made me feel with my clothes off and I loved how you could turn a bedroom into a home. Even if home was miles away and we were staying in a hotel room and the air conditioner didn’t even work and you had brought so many other girls here that I could grab perfume from the air and place it on myself and compare myself to them without ever taking my eyes off of you. You never knew my favorite color and it’s blue. You never knew that I hate chocolate or that my grandma was in the hospital for 2 weeks while you ignored my calls. So I dedicate this to my love, my new love, because they’ll never forget my birthday and I’ll drown in them like the ocean. I hang you out to dry, I leave you on the side of the road, old love, because for many months I wasn’t even a destination for you I was a one night motel.
—  I hope she likes ignored calls and other girls.

Quick witch tip (which everyone probably already knows and I’m just late to the party like usual):

Instead of hang drying or pressing these rose petals like I would normally do, I dried them on a hot radiator for a few hours, and the colour has stayed. They feel completely dry like they would if I had hung the roses like herbs. Time will tell if the colour does fade or brown, but I just thought I would share :)

Drying Octopus in Plaka

Located on the northwest coast of Crete, you’ll find a little village called Plaka. It’s the perfect place to sample a Greek seafood delicacy – grilled octopus. You’ll see the octopus hanging out to dry in the afternoon sun, before being garnished with a few herbs and lemon juice, and then grilled over charcoal and served with ouzo to make a fine meze dish.

Witch Tip 🌿✨

Do you prefer pressing your flowers and herbs rather than hang-drying them? Press your magickal plants in books that go with whatever association you use them for! For example, if you plan to use some dried lavender stalks in a love spell, press them to dry for a few weeks in a romance novel. If you’re going to use some mint in a financial spell, press the leaves in a finance or budgeting book.

If you feel like the pressed plants are too pretty to burn or use in a spell, you can also gift them! Give your friends rose petals or lavender that were pressed in a love or friendship book, give your enemies a bit of nightshade pressed in a murder mystery, the possibilities are endless ~ You can arrange them on paper and frame them, bottle them, attach them to letters, and so much more.

You were bored so you decided to pay a visit to Liz at the bar. Walking up the stairs towards the bar, you notice the bar is pretty empty. Liz is behind the bar hand drying glasses. You see James sitting at a table nearby chatting with a girl you’ve never met. He’s sitting down smoking a cigarette and she’s standing up. You didn’t really think any of it, thinking she was just passing by or something. Then, you see her laugh and she rests her hand on his shoulder.
James knows better, so immediately he removes her hand.

You almost reach the top of the stairs, so you stop and move your fingers along the railway while mean mugging the hell out of her. You’re thinking to yourself, who does she think she is? does she not see the ring on his finger that he’s a married man?

For safety reasons, James always tells you to have a pocket knife with you. You were still standing at the stairs thinking and you just remembered you have one in your back pocket.
You had an idea and said to yourself, “fuck it.”

You pulled out your pocket knife, having it out and ready to use. Immediately, you walked up to their table. The girl looks at you, but before she has a chance to say anything to you, you slit her throat.

She slowly starts falling to the ground with blood gushing out of her throat while you stared at her with your poker face on the entire time. James sat there surprised, not saying a word. His eyes were widened. Liz still stood behind the bar with one brow raised.

“Now, clean that shit up James.” You looked at James, then walked away, heading back downstairs and into the elevator.

Is it just me that feels bad leaving in the middle of a rush? I always feel skeevy, like I'm hanging my coworkers out to dry and laughing while I walk away. Of course I'm not, but am I just weird to think this?
