The standing area cleared about the first 100 queue numbers when the rain started. I don’t understand Thai but the shawol in front of me told her friend “… … SHINee” in a matter of fact tone and I laughed. She looked at me and said “You know what I mean, right?” and I agreed.
It’s an international language now: SHINee brings the rain where ever they go.
Sometimes Ice King gets lost. More than once he’s shown up at the treehouse covered in mud and some brambles. Finn and Jake clean him up and have him take a nap. Then they call Marceline to see if she can take him back to the Ice Kingdom.
One day a Banana Guard awkwardly comes into Princess Bubblegum’s chambers with a report. After multiple comforting words he finally breaks down and tells her that the Ice King is sleeping in one of the many spare rooms in the castle. Bonnibel very calmly tells him that she was fully aware of that, thank you, and he could continue to do so unless circumstances bade him to be kicked out. Also, if one of the guards could ask him to pick up the long beard hairs he’s been leaving around, that would be nice.
Pretty much every other day he knocks on Marceline’s door for a sleepover or to talk, but you’d be very hard-pressed to get this info from Marcy.
Marceline is a very specific type of hermit where she prefers her privacy and hates admitting that she just came by to hang; it’s too sappy. Ice King gets none of that and whenever they go somewhere together talks all about how excited she’d been to get to go, trying out different hairstyles and dresses and even getting out her special lucky pick so nothing went wrong.
Ice King ‘sneaks’ food out of everyone’s fridge, but that’s fine, they can always go get more. His favorite to scavenge from is Bubblegum’s, since she has such a wide selection, not to mention that drawer filled to the brim with red things.
One time he does this while Bonnie and Marcy are having breakfast together and the topic of conversation turns to him. Ice King peers over the door and asks them why they call him Simon. His name is Ice King, y’know? IK, if you’re into that nickname biz. Marceline gets very uncomfortable at this, but Bonnie tells him that Simon is a Very Special Nickname they only give Very Special Friends, and Ice King is that Special Friend.
Ice King is this weird hub of human knowledge; usually he doesn’t have a clue, but then there’s days he’ll bust in as Jake is making dinner like HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE EASTER BUNNY BECAUSE LEMME TELL YOU THE EASTER BUNNY IS SOMETHING THAT’S FOR SURE. An hour later he’s got a full belly and can’t remember why he’s there in the first place. Finn and Jake tell him about the East (or was it East-Run?) Bunny and he’s enthralled; why can’t all bunny rabbits make eggs of chocolate? He’s totally gonna degree that they should when he gets home.
This hub doubles in weirdness whenever Marceline gets reminiscing in the same room as him. The vampire once got into an argument with the man over whether or not magic even existed before the war. (”No, Simon, dinosaurs were absolutely Not Magic.”) Bonnie not-so-subtly takes notes.
One day he remembers that last names were totally a thing for humans and asks Finn about his. He tells him it’s technically Mertens, but he doesn’t really like that name at all. If Ice King wants it, he’s welcome to it. Then he asks Marcy, who is proud of the name Abadeer. It just fits her image, y’know? But since Ice King is technically family, he can have it too or whatever.
Ice King Mertens-Abadeer. Bubblegum tells him it should be flipped for the sake of being alphabetical, but he refuses. Mertens first. No exceptions.

Suzi, my cat, has been outside a lot the past couple of days. Sure she’d come inside to eat and snuggle, but she would leave after 10 minutes and not come home until the next day. I got curious and followed her outside, which she’s generally okay with, to see where she went.
Turns out she walks the block to hang with her crush, a Handsome Boy Cat (ginger and white). She’s flip-flopping between cuddles and playing hard to get, but it’s clear they like each other. He’s a nice kitty, too!
