Sometimes I feel random guilt towards objects
Like I throw something like a teddy bear on the floor out of anger and I’ll feel a sudden guilty feeling like? Someone made that and that’s what I do with it??
Or I buy something just to store it away and not use it and I’ll feel guilty like.. I bought something someone made and I just ignore it and never use it?
Another thing I do is when I just can’t get rid of gifts that people have given me, no matter how long ago it was given. Even if I don’t like the person that gave it me or I haven’t used it in years or if I haven’t touched it at all. They spent money on that and there’s no chance I can just throw it away,,, even if it’s just a rock that my 3 year old nephew picked up and gave to me
It reminds me of the first time I’ve ever think “Laxus is such a giant teddy bear!”, because he saw a dead member of his guild and he asked her if she’s real patting her on the head. He’s such a cutie pie.
From that panel came out thousands of headcanons involving him and the Strauss siblings and I loved seeing him like this again.
Farewell to my dear Figaro (named after Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, I’m an opera lover, what did you expect, not naming my pets after opera characters?). He was thirteen years with us, being a little troll, ocasionally dipping paper in his water dispenser, eating a lot of lettuce (not iceberg, that’s not real lettuce), perching on my books, perching on my teddy bear (he liked that teddy bear), singing along the works of Bizet or fire sirens, for him it made little difference. Helping me through a dark, sad period of my life several years ago, when I cried with frustration every morning for the simple fact of being alive. I’ll remember all the joys he brought to me, always.
Interesting find at garage sale- Pat’s letter teddy bear
O.k so while i was at my part time, this church from across our apartment was having a yard sale, my sister tells me she found a cute teddy bear and has gotten it for me, she paid 50 cents for it. Little did we knew that this little teddy bear hold a incredible secrets.
The teddy bear, or as I call him, Pappi, had writing all over him. At first we thought it was some scribble made by little kids, but the more we examined it closely it was an old writing wishing someone well. One thing we noticed is that the teddy bear was presented at 4/15/1944. Guys this teddy is like 73 years old.
There is so much thing that is unusual about Pappi, and here are couple of things we figured out so far.
-It was gifted to a girl name Patula, but everyone calls her Pat. And according to the letters she was a sweet and swell gal.
-All the letters where indicating that she was going away somewhere, one writer stated that they will soon meet at Tulsa.
-Pappi was signed by 25 different people, who really treasured Pat.
- Black inks turn brown over long period of time, so this is as legit as it can get.
-Pappi’s design is highly unusual for a teddy who is from 40′s. He has no sign indicating that he was manufactured. (Such as logo print, or a button with company name engraved to it) Not only that he was made with a cloth instead of being covered with fur like the rest of the teddy from that time period.
Here is an example of type of teddy bear that was common in that time frame, a popular one from the 1940 was the Steiff teddy bears.)
-There is a high indication that Pappi has been hand made by someone from scratch, likely with a sewing machine. Whoever made him ran out of materials and left his arm in a simple floppy design, again i shall mention, is a unusual design choice compare to a popular designs.
-We know for the fact that, Pat adored this bear and treasured it, keeping it such incredible condition for past 70 years.
-It’s possible that Pat is no longer with us.
-And my sister and I know for a fact that Pat’s family saw no value in it and decided to simply toss it at a yard sale.
It’s sad to see such wonderful thing to be thrown out like this, honestly this teddy bear belongs in a museum, not because how old or unusual it is but because of the love put in by the 25 different people and the owner who took such good care of it for seven decades.
But for now, I think this teddy deserves some cuddling.
Whelp, where ever you are Ms.Pat, I adore this really strange, mysterious and sentimental teddy, Pappi gets to see sunshine and travels with me now.
Screenshots of Cartoon Network’s new short, Villainous. It’s about
an evil organization called “The Black Cat Organization”, the organization is led by a character named Black Hat, an elegant, cunning
and wicked man. Helping Black Hat with his evil plans is Dr. Flug, who’s
a scientist that has a tendency to get nervous. Black Hat’s assistant
is Demencia, who loves to destroy things for fun. Last but not least,
there’s 5.0.5, a failed experiment by Dr. Flug, an adorable teddy
bear-like creature and is the complete opposite of being evil.
I just found out this last night and I already starting to like it. Black Hat reminds me of Mike Schmidt from Five Nights at Freddy’s and Murdoc Niccals from The Gorillaz. As for his scientist Dr. Flug, he reminds me of Jeff. Demencia is like Marceline and Amethyst into one.
Anyway, I hope it gets a TV show of it’s own someday. If we live long enough to see it.
lance: like sleeping beauty, straight as a rod, face turned up, hands folded perfectly so he doesnt ruin his nightly face mask. He silently snores but will deny it. the first time hunk ever saw him sleep, he swore it was like watching the sleeping beauty scene from th emovie, he even swore that lance was sparkling… but that might have just been his imagination. He also is one heavy sleeper, nothing can wake him up, unless you slap him. But lance is generally an easrly riser, always the first one up unless of course pidge just never went to bed. This is due to the fact that he had to get up really early in his house hold to get all the chores done
keith: he sleeps all curled up ina smol ball with his hand under his pillow, he’s got a knife under there…just in case. He is a very loud snorer, also a very light sleeper, the slightest sound will wake him up… except for his own loud ass snoring. Usually the second or thrid one up in the morning, generally greeted with lance’s face waking him up because “god mullet head, its 10:30 already get up!” 2 words BED HEAD keith has the worst bed head known to anyone, his hair is sticking up all over the place and it’s basically untamable until he showers.
Shiro: he just collapses in his bed, sprawled out like a damn starfish. The poor dude is fucking exhausted from running this choatic space family. jyst let the poor guy sleep. He is also a really loud snorer and a hella heavy sleeper. usually he doesnt even get the chance to crawl under the covers, he just flops onto the bed and is out. Shiro often shifts in his sleep and has nightmares, bc of the whole “champion” ordeal, it really gets to him. He is usually the 2nd one up in the morning and has some nice bonding moments with lance
pidge: they dont sleep at all, like they’re up 24/7 in the science lab thingy. Sometimes they’ll fall alseep and Lance will find them early in the morning and bring them to bed. Pidge knows this but doesn’t say anything, neither does lance. And if Lance doesn’t physically take them to bed, pidge will just stay up, they run on coffee and science. Sometimes Lance will stay with them early in the morning just so they have company, pidge will never admit it but they enjoy it. But when they do happen to sleep, its for like 4 hours and they too are sprawled out
coran: sleeps in the weirdest positions. you can find him upside down, curled in a ball. for quiznaks sake Allura once found him standing up dead asleep. He doesnt snore.. too loud and he doesnt drool either. But he’s a sleepwalker/singer/talker. He just basically does everything asleep. Allura has gotten used to is, but it freaks the fuck out of pidge and lance at like 3am in the morning when they’re up and suddenly coran pops out from no where. The paladins are slowly trying to get used to it.
Hunk: he lays on his side all curled up, like ahuge soft teddy bear. Suprising to most, hunk doesnt snore at all. Always the ;last one to get up but no one scolds him bc how can you be mad at an angel. Hunk does drool in his sleep, its actually kind of nasty. Lance found that out the hard way when hunk fell asleep on him in the garrison and found a pool of drool on his shoulder. Hunk aften tosses and moves around in his sleep, always trying to find the most comfy position. He also sleeps under a nest of blankets and pillows, he gets really cold in his sleep
allura: she sleeps like a literal princess cause she is one. She’s flawless while asleep and awake. She is the loudest snorer and drools as well. She doesn’t fall asleep easily but when she does shes out. but like pidge, she doesnt sleep very much, maybe like 4-6 hours. and sometimes allura doesnt sleep for a solid 36 hours. its not good for her but some days when she’s really tired she and lance will have a spa day to relax and take the edge off.
I heard a rumor that butches have access to the world of men by virtue of their polished boots and perfect Winsor knots
Some tragedy tells me that they are the pretend women; the women born wrong; the women-not-women
who inhabit a spectral plane where they wear shackles identical to mine but cannot name the cage they’re in
I heard a lie that butches are men in a bad plastic mask
That their privileges include public hisses, leering eyes, and strangers plodding close behind
I heard that butches sink venom
into femme women
into straight women
into whoever passes by their street corner
at which of course they are leaning against a brick wall with their thumbs hooked into their Dungarees
(But this is not about my fantasies)
I was told some tedium
when I was a baby gay
salivating over Stephanie with the chain wallet and the sneer
who spoke against the cruelty of boys in my class
when I was sold the snake oil that butches were hiding in the shadows
waiting to burn my bra
But here is what I have learned:
Butches swing bats against true predators
scaled monstrosities preying up and down the block
They have dug their heels in for my right to call myself a lesbian
to free me from every constricting dress and shapewear that men would otherwise cram me into
I was always good enough, small enough, big enough, loud and quiet and sour enough
A butch woman taught my public school sex education class
and gritted her teeth when her students asked about barrier methods
hands tied by the confines of simply needing to pay her rent
so no she could not dismantle the system
But, she said,
“If anyone–anyone–Has any questions, my office is open”
Butches ask me if I’m doing okay when I’m in a new space
They ask me to dance
if I feel safe
if I need to get a cab home
Butch women have been the ones to catch my terrified stare when I have Shrodinger’s rapist standing next to me on the subway
because you don’t know
until you know
Butches love flowers,
split the bill
whisper sweetly to their cats
secretly sleep with teddy bears
Butches snore like sleeping dragons and bite like them, too
but only when their homes have been invaded
caved in, gutted
and carved beyond recognition
Butch is not a liminal space
Butch is a force to be reckoned with, but if you let it, then the rain will come
and everything good will grow from the ground
The rain will come
