old bathing suite

“YOU MEAN FUN FOR YOU.”

@forcearama: ask and you shall receive!

also the TV Trope article about Old Timey Bathing Suits says that at some point (when showing legs was scandalous) it was a porn trope (probably more for women but “men could be arrested for swimming topless” so…). Yup…

@calyssmarviss Hey friend you totally want to draw Obi-Wan and Anakin wearing old timey bathing suits, right? Like these things? While Anakin is being dragged to a beach against his will?

Just, uh, wondering. @yuneyn and I would be grateful. Like, if you felt so inclined.

<br />Did these gals just come out of the bar or are they headed in? Further down the sidewalk are signs for a church and bait.

Welcome to Why I Hate Shaving: Long Edition

So my granny walks in right before we go to bed and asks me if I wanna go to swim class with her tomorrow morning, and my dumbass feels just guilty enough for eating alfredo, stuffed mushrooms and 47 breadsticks at fucking Olive Garden tonight that I’m like “yeah sure”

Cut to an hour after I’ve been watching YouTube videos and I realize I haven’t shaved in a month and the fear of Judgement from these terrifying prejudiced and out of touch Old People in Bathing Suits is far greater than any fear of judgement from my peers, like there’s no hiding this shit, I’ve got hairy Tree Legs

So I decide I need to take a shower RIGHT NOW, at 1 am, to fix this problem

Of course lucky me, already trying to be quiet knowing I’m the only person awake in this Sleepy Shady Stately Willow Maple Valley Acres Oaks Retirement Home, have chosen at random to bring with me the one Satan Spawn Razor - you know the one, there’s one in every pack, roulette-jettisoned into the mix on that day the discount Gillete factory was like “hey should we add these Actual Surgical Tools to these packs of dollar razors?” And the manager was like “uh sure, gives a shit machine broke” so you end up with these Hannibal Lecter blades dying to eat your skin at every opportunity, which I promptly let them do 0.3 seconds after getting in the shower

So I’m sitting there trying not scream “I HATE, I HATE, I HATE” through the pain and proceed to watch the bathtub turn pink and I don’t know why I even BOTHERED to out pressure on it because we all know these wounds are cursed with some crazy voodoo magic that makes it bleed like the Eternal Flame of Hell’s Blood Waterfall so I’m just trying shave through it knowing that in a month I’ll be saying HELLO to some amazing ingrown hairs

And go figure the only towels given to me were WHITE so I’m slipping around the tiled floor streaming blood reaching for toilet paper in what looks like a paper goods massacre and let me tell you it is STILL bleeding as I type this I got like 26 bandaids on that bullshit and WHY does my grandfather have dramamine in his medicine cabinet just casually sittin next to the advil

Anyway that’s it that’s my story about avoiding razor burn by Removing the skin Entirely and my tired ass needs to go to BED and the only good part of this excursion was that I got to masturbate while thinking about Nathan Page

Goldfish Ghost does not begin with the death of a fish. It begins with the birth of a ghost.

Goldfish Ghost
by Lemony Snicket, Lisa Brown (Illustrator)

2017, 40 pages, 8.4 x 10.4 inches, Hardcover
$12 Buy on Amazon

Goldfish Ghost does not begin with the death of a fish. It begins with the birth of a ghost. The wonderfully clever, silly, sweet story about a ghost in search of good company comes from husband and wife team Lemony Snicket and Lisa Brown.

Though the story is great, it’s the little details in Brown’s illustrations that make me love this book. Goldfish Ghost (and the ghosts of the sea creatures he meets) floats through the story belly-up. Tucked into the beach scene is pair of people ghosts, watching the waves in old-timey bathing suits. The subtle way in which Brown uses scrawled, faint, white line—ghost-like in its own right, like the chalked words erased from a blackboard but not really gone—is so lovely and smart, it’s probably my favorite thing about the whole book.
