“Holy shi—Mom, MOM, MOM take a picture take a picture take a pictu—”
-Tsukishima Akiteru, Founder of the Suki Tsukki Society



Well, I’m a day late but sh

Hope everyone’s having a nice holiday break 

Tsukishima Kei’s the type of person who tries to preserve the physical integrity of the wrapping paper his presents are wrapped in. 1 because he’s not a savage, and 2 because when there are people watching him open their presents, he likes seeing them squirm. 

(and 3, he likes to save them as memorabilia)

Moon in Capricorn

The only Lunar “action” today is a sextile to Neptune/Pisces, rather late in the day (around 00:00 Tuesday, UT). Makes for a bit more wistful and mournful vibe to Capricorn - we find the oddest rewards/pleasures today by simply finishing our tasks. The Boss may be more sympathetic to you today, as well, though as the day passes her/his sympathies may diminish.

Ideally this shows us identifying as the kind of people who are always stepping up and being responsible. Which is a nice thing, except when you’re trumpeting that fact (blowing your own horn) at maximum volume to all and sundry. Another “wrong” way is for us to be all hot air, impractical and egotistic. Step up and be responsible, and keep your ego-gloating to yourself.

Looking ahead to Tuesday: a mess to start with.


Entertainment Tonight interviews with Maks and Peta from the Race to Erase MS Gala 5/5/17 [x]

In today’s marginalia, a long-departed reader notes (at the bottom) that we should “behold [things that are] foreign/strange” (”ecce alienigene”) in this 15th century Book of Hours.  Thanks to soon-to-be Dr. Lucy Barnhouse for the translation.  On a side note, the tiny-yet-intricate embellishments to this page (and throughout the entire book) make me happy.
