I want bananas- more bananas
because they are are solid and easy
and make me feel I’m doing something right-
until they brown within days, reminding me
of good intentions gone awry.
I open the door for anyone
Kale is manna for my lizard
but seems like poisoned grass to me,
which makes me wonder if my taste buds
are ruined for anything natural
after years of phosphate abuse.
The deli is a dirty place - asking for
salted meats and watching
as beef glides along a spinning blade
with plastic-coated hands
Which reminds me to again
to clear my browser history.
Rows and rows of boxes and cans
that just need time and water
to make food appear tasty
has me thinking of armageddon.
Too much History Channel
and daydreams about bomb shelters.
How much sex in a bomb shelter
could make one forget
the world is ending outside?
Tissues- more damn tissues
since I can’t stop crying
over my charmed life
that I’m trying not to screw up.
The challenge doesn’t get old
but melancholy sure does.
Tweezers for the new chin hairs
that have heralded my mid-40s
like little bullies bent
on making me feel like a mutant.
A new shelf- for the first time today-
anti aging face cream,
because though I held up well
for 44 years, #45 has beaten me up
like a bastard-
and I’ve fought bastards before;
though I don’t want to look younger,
I just don’t want to look so tired or sad.
Maybe there is no cream for that.
The bakery is always at the end
of my shopping trip,
with my private heaven
waiting to be wrapped in paper
and devoured as soon as I get to the car.
Have I really been at this for decades
and can I keep going?
Will I recede into Stepford complacency
or will I keep my own step and voice
even though it’s mostly to entertain myself?
can i just say though that todd’s tweet about alec and magnus being ‘very happy’ lowkey terrifies me?? bc i’ve been so used to seeing shit hit the fan in the most spectacular way when my otps were at their happiest (or at least getting there) that i’m just expecting it to happen now as well and i really want and hope to be proven wrong this time pls
I had a sudden realization that maybe when my fellow troupe members say I’m not a bad dancer, they might not be lying.
I mean I’m not awesome, but watching video of myself is no longer physically painful. I am actually pretty okay. My biggest strength is still the character stuff, but like…I don’t think the dancing actively detracts from my performance anymore.
I am honestly kind of not even sure what to do with this knowledge.
me: tells myself i’m going to write less on ask & replies so i don’t get too burned out after answering one me: - turns to look at the three ask replies i did yesterday, all being multi para - also me: gDI HINA
A long awaited reply to both @tofnew and @oddeyekey for the selfie tag - today marks a special occasion as I’m home for Christmas 😊💕 this means I actually had a shower, brushed my hair and put some make up on for once 😅
Very late, but I wanted to get this dang thing finally over and done with ;A; For Day 4 of Voltron Week: Day Off/Vacation. The Paladins have some time off so Allura starts teaching them one of her favorite Altean pastimes: dancing!
Meanwhile Coran… the little princess he took care of is not so little any more, and all these Altean dances bring back memories and it really hits them both that they are the last to pass on their traditions to others…sorry my thoughts got a bit heavy– also! First time drawing Coran!!
If you’re worried about Rose looking suspiciously like a visual callback to the antagonists in the extended intro and how it’s likely because Steven’s starting to fear his mother in light of recent developments clap your hands!!!!!
