i have nails too

I’m starting to see some right-before-the-holidays-be-nice-to-retail-workers posts, so I want to just say a couple things you can do to make your local retail workers’ lives a little easier:

1. If you’re buying cards, especially multiple cards, face the barcode out. This isn’t a huge thing, but fumbling with the envelopes and trying to make sure not to miss any takes time.
2. ASK FOR GIFT RECEIPTS BEFORE YOU PAY. This one actually IS pretty big, as a lot of places require a manager to print them once a transaction is closed. And everyone gets mad about how long that can take, because managers are BUSY right now.
3. Be aware of the fact that many stores can’t match online prices. Don’t waste your time and your store workers’ time by arguing about it.
4. If you try and call your store, don’t get nasty if you have to wait awhile to get through. We’re all doing our best, but EVERYONE is calling or coming in this week, and no matter how many people we staff we’re very busy.
5. This is less a holiday thing, but always think through things you say to retail workers! They almost always have to be nice to you, even when you make them uncomfortable, and that dynamic makes things even more uneasy for them.

It’s Getting Hot In Here Series by @swallowedsong 

Summary: Emma’s a boxer and Killian’s a yoga instructor for the class that David (her trainer) makes her take so she can chill between matches. She’s a little tightly wound, you see, and what better way to relax than yoga right?

except, she wasn’t quite expecting her instructor to be so. damn. hot.

Fanfics that deserve to be movies [18/?] [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21]

Somebody stole my wallet while I was at MacDonald’s, and I wouldn’t have gotten it back except for two things: I stopped to give a homeless man some change and couldn’t find it; and when I went back inside, somebody told me they’d seen a woman grab something off my seat. I caught the thief coming out of the bathroom. She gave me back my credit cards and dug my wallet out of the trash where she’d dumped it when I confronted her. Stole all my change though. Jerk.

I used my recovered credit cards to buy the homeless man a meal, since I figured I owed him. So somebody besides the thief benefited from this incident at least.

if you’re wondering why i haven’t been posting as much it’s because i inadvertently set my obsessive personality onto nail polish which is bad because a. it doesn’t have a fandom that i can get involved in, i just have to sit in my room alone painting and repainting my nails an unhealthy amount, and b. it’s an actual thing in the real world that costs actual money

It just occurred to me

Harry Potter was set in the 1990s, and all the…..ahem… fashion thereof.




Apropos of nothing, in my fanfic “Side-Step” a Gem who’s just arrived from Homeworld says, “Blue Diamond’s completely withdrawn into brooding and melancholy and often nobody sees her from one century to the next.  Yellow Diamond works like an absolute fury and never admits anything is wrong at all ever - unless she thinks she’s venting in total privacy.  And White Diamond has just stopped caring about everything except aesthetics and luxury and refinement.”  I wrote that in the last quarter of last year, iirc, well before seeing the Zoo Bomb, and a commenter just pointed out how accurate it had turned out to be.  I regard the Blue and Yellow hits as more lucky guesses than anything else, but I’ll be darned interested to see whether I nailed White Diamond too.

And if I do have the gift of prophecy that’s good news for Amedot and Jaspearl.

I reallllly was not expecting my little anecdotal screw-up to go viral like this. XD I was honestly just posting it because it was funny to me that I missed something so obvious.

I dunno how many of you will read this but I feel inclined to say a few things in response to the post.

1) My thumbnails are indeed mostly missing on both of my hands. I have tiny slivers of a thumbnail on the edges of my thumb. No, I did not chew them off. I literally popped outta the womb like this. It is a hereditary genetic deformity called Nail-Patella Syndrome. I have other bodily deformities too because of this condition. No, it does not hurt. I do occasionally get people asking me about this IRL as well so I thought it’d be neat to post about NPS. 

2) Those of us who didn’t realize our pen holders had nibs in them aren’t stupid. We didn’t read the instruction manuals or notice what all our tablet came with contents-wise. Some of us might have gotten our tablets as gifts, too. None of this makes us stupid. Maybe a little unobservant, but we ain’t idiots. You can inform others about things you know about without being mean about it. 

I’m glad my post was able to inform other artists that they may have extra nibs that they didn’t notice. Some of you thought this was common knowledge but hey, not everybody pays attention to these things and that’s okay too! I’m glad I was able to save some of you 10 bucks though. :P

y’all my cousin refuses to cut her hair so this her name now


ADDICTED FOR 15 DAYS // day-03: favorite character hobbies

( Willow Moore’s )

I think I need to rewrite my eulogy: What a sheltered little creature, that Willow Moore, who only understands life through the lens of good television, books, and classic coming-of-age movies.

anonymous asked:

do you know of any chews (or other toys tbh) that could replicate the feeling of nail-biting/tearing nails? its starting to get to be an issue for me ;o;

oh gosh i haven’t figured this one out yet and its a problem i have too
what i try to do is paint my nails bcus nail polish does Not taste good

one of my most weirdly picky traits is that I don’t like stim videos where the people have long nails because i personally hate the feeling of having my nails grow too long and so seeing long nails reminds me of that. idk where i was going with this, just a thought
