kitchen implements

some neko atsume fact

  • haishiro(lexy) likes goods which were purchased with gold fish especially(but they are not picky about food)
  • haihachi(rascal) only comes for expensive food(ie gold fish)
  • cream(peaches) uses all the goodies. it’s hard to tell since they rarely appear but they do have preferences.
  • haisabi(spooky) usually comes when there’s only few cats in the yard.(thus it’s hard to meet them when you put out expensive food)
  • kijitora(bolt) likes especially food-related goodies(ie goodies with food shape and kitchen implements etc)
  • creamtora(apricot) is the one who does the face down pose( ごめん寝 ) most often
  • choco(ganache) isn’t picky about colors and shapes of the goodies.(they focus on the function mostly)
  • ‘glass vase’ is the only good that all of the cat use so far

one of my fav thign about neko atsume is that each of cats get their own behavior/personality and as time passes you get to know more about each of them. not to mention i only listed the most obvious ones here. a lot of cats also have color preference and there’re goodies they like and never use.

Long, long list of Frozen headcanons

-All the castle guards had a betting pool going on how long it’ll take Kristoff to propose.

-Anna teaches herself how to sew and recreates the sisters dolls she and Elsa had when they were little.

-Both sisters can speak several languages: Elsa because it was part of being groomed to be queen, Anna because she was bored and lonely.

-Both of them hate English with all their hearts. 

-Kristoff learns how to read out of Anna’s collection of romance novels (“So that’s how you spell orgasm”).

-Since he’s a snowman, it’s impossible for Olaf to sleep. Everyone has now gotten used to him wandering the castle at night, pretending to be a phantom or trying to play music with kitchen implements.

-The entire kitchen staff are hardcore Elsanna shippers.

-But the guards and maids root for Kristanna.

-Snow-statue contests, all year round. Elsa always wins.

-There are multiple souvenir shops around Arendelle that sell little dolls and figurines of the royal family (for the 19th-century predecessors of the Frozen fandom).

-Elsa’s ice-clothing melts when she gets aroused. Luckily or unluckily, that only happened once in public.

-Anna goes to visit the little kids all the time at the local schools and orphanage. She often brings Kristoff or Elsa with her; the first because he (for some reason) gets all adorably awkward and blushy when he sees her with kids, the second because she loves kids but probably won’t have any of her own.

-Speaking of kids, Anna and Kristoff eventually have two: a boy and a girl. The girl becomes a boss-ass ice harvester when she gets older.

-Since she’s no longer scared she’ll kill everything she touches, Elsa gets a crapton of pets.

-Sven lives unusually long for a reindeer: long enough to see his best friend marry Anna and her have both of his babies.

-Elsa has her snowgies play pranks on everyone when she wants revenge; and they happily oblige. They have stolen clothing, put salt in cakes, dive-bombed sleds, and hidden Marshmallow’s tiara in people’s bedrooms.

-Because of the tiara incident, Marshmallow nearly went on a rampage just to get it back.

-Anna makes all her family dance with her at least once at all the royal balls.

-Whenever they have family sleepovers, it’s always in Anna’s room, where they eat ice cream and talk smack about other royalty.

-After balls, Elsa and Anna arguing about which prince was ogling who, and Kristoff pouting enviously.

-Olaf is the. Worst. Babysitter. EVER. He lets the kids get away with EVERYTHING. Elsa’s always the disciplinarian. 

-Kristoff’s wedding ring is engraved with “May we?” in runes, and Anna’s is engraved with “We may.”

-The trolls spoil the kids rotten, and always keep giving advice for all the adults. The most recurring one is that Elsa needs to get out and socialize more.

-Elsa and Kristoff have a mutual agreement: if they need to, they’ll work together to protect Anna, even if they both know she can protect herself.

-Elsa and Kristoff spend the royal balls and parties discreetly trying to hide from everyone else, at least until Anna finds them.

-Flagendorfer-eating contests. Anna always wins.

-Their family portraits are their most precious possessions.

-When they’re all really old, Elsa and Anna and Kristoff all write down the story of the freeze and thaw to always remind their family of the power of true love. Over a hundred years later, a woman accidentally finds it while traveling to Norway to do research for a possible movie. Her name is Jennifer Lee.

anonymous asked:

Any advice for those who are still in the broom closet? (ie how to do spells with things commonly found around the house)

(Without additional information I’m going to assume you mean spells of the kind often found in spaces like neo-Wicca and other common forms of paganism and witchcraft, which are very different from practices like hoodoo.)

One characteristic of contemporary Western witchcraft is how much room for improvisation it allows.  It can operate on both common associations, such as a rose representing romantic love, and personal ones, like my using a particular herb as self-representation because its name is similar to mine.  If you need a chalice, use a regular glass, mug, shotglass, or bowl.  If you need a cauldron, use a pot, though be careful not to damage any nonstick coating with metal implements.  Kitchen knives and scissors work for an athame.  Chopsticks become wands.  Spice racks hold a wide variety of mundane herbs that are useful both for cooking and for spells.  Warm oven tops become a hearth.  If you can’t burn a candle, you can substitute with a particularly strong spice, an unlit match, something with an electric current, or anything else that calls to mind heat or the potential for heat.  Password-protected laptops and cell phones can be your Book of Shadows, magical journal, grimoire, or other text; the wallpaper or desktop can be your religious icon.  Altars can be kept in shoeboxes, drawers, masqueraded as a ‘curio’ shelf, or only assembled when you need to use one.

As for actually doing a spell, that depends more on your personal preference.  If you’re the type to cast a circle every time, you might disguise it by pretending to dance and sing while using the kitchen or doing chores.  You can establish spaces using music, sweeping or vacuuming, or flicking a little water from a cup with your fingertips.  Incantations you might use don’t necessarily have to be said aloud, especially if there are people around who might be discomfited, or can be adapted to fit a popular tune.  If you like to do visualization, that’s a powerful and invisible tool as well.  Practicality and creativity are your greatest tools of all.

To be fair to Tchibo, in addition to adorably pointless kitchen implements that make you realize why white people jokes exist, they also sell useful things. What kind of useful things, you ask? All of them. Need a cup of coffee and biscotti? Tchibo. Need something for your bike? Tchibo. Need bedding? Tchibo. Need speakers you can plug into your mp3 player? Tchibo. Gardening stuff? Tchibo. Special box just for kiwi fruit? Tchibo. Weird exercise gear of questionable safety? Tchibo. And it’s all crammed into a small storefront but in a classy way

It was only part of myself I wanted to kill: the part that wanted to kill herself, that dragged me into the suicide debate and made every window, kitchen implement, and subway station a rehearsel for tragedy
