over activity

Thank you so much for all your kind congratulations & best wishes re: Elana! She’s doing incredibly well and we’re so, so, SO happy she’s here. 😍

My Tumblr presence will probably be somewhat irregular from now on (or at least for the foreseeable future), but if you’re interested in maintaining regular contact and/or being spammed with baby pics, please check out my Twitter account. (My username is @hux_you_up.) I’m much more active over there these days!

Highlights of the February 18th SPG Concert!
  • Long post warning! So sorry ya'll. @~@"
  • -Spine pulling on the bottom of his vest a bunch in the beginning of the concert.
  • -Hatchworth's goodbye video! (Aka Hatchy walks a very long, very lonely road to find some gold fish.)
  • -Rabbit and Zero getting really sidetracked talking about broilers and chicken and food in general.
  • -Spine getting very annoyed at his siblings for not taking their banter seriously.
  • -Spine getting legit ragey (like oh no, he's mad now >: 3c )
  • -Overdrive being played out as an energy drink that's horrible for robots. (And Rabbit throwing up on Spine after Spine drenched himself in Overdrive cola)
  • -the choreographed dance that went with Overdrive (also, everyone mcfrickin dabbed and I'm still not over it)
  • -Zero almost activating Spine and Rabbit's self destruct sequences before Steam Powered Giraffe (Reprise)
  • -Spine broke down, was thought to be dead for a bit, and then woke back up to sing Diamonds (also, Zero booping Spine after repeatedly slapping him).
  • -The repeated "Love" tidbit before Honeybee
  • -Rabbit, dramatically: ~LOVE~!!!
  • -Spine, sauvely: Love?
  • -Zero, comedically: LoVe?? *cough* loVE??! LOVE??????
  • -Just, everything Zero did, joking about being Hatchworth, showing off his personality, his beautiful voice...(he was too perfect I'm sorry ^//♡//^)
  • -Spine actually petting GG during Diamonds tho(😕)
  • -Qwerty sang the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme again
  • -I'm sure there was other stuff I just can't remember, but the show was great. (O yeah, and the video I took of me giving Spine a Lightning McQueen >: D)
This is not a love poem
this is an I love you do you love me like
I love you poem
do you know me like
you think you do poem
this is a would you be disappointed
if you did poem
an I have been feeling the chilling of the air
and I cant tell if it is just the fault of the season
or if you, too, are cooling
whatever heat you had for me
browning and falling and
crumbling between my fingers
like the leaves of these oak trees
in november poem
a what would I need to do to keep us warm poem
and this is also
an I may be completely mistaken poem
an it was seventy degrees today poem
this is a show me I am completely mistaken poem
—  A.O.A.M. || This Is Not Love Poem Poem
Here there are a thousand minds
a thousand lights
a thousand worlds lining walls
like tiles
or stained glass windows
and your mind moves through them
like a fish through a reef
shiny and graceful and quick
effortless
and at the same time it is in the center
it is the center
and I want nothing
other than to explore it
and it alone
—  A.O.A.M. || Library Love Poem
I want teeth
longer than my fingers
and claws longer than those
and I want stars on my cheeks
and sunbeams tangled in my hair

I want to smile at strangers on the street
with a bounce in my step
and I want to intimidate
to freeze hearts
I want to awe

I want the guts
to be capable of filleting an idea
as it flips and squirms in my hands
while maintaining a mind
as open as the ocean

I want to burn
and destroy
and I want to build
and create worlds

I want to finish this poem
and I never want it to end
—  A.O.A.M. || Am I a Mess of Contradictions or Am I Just Closed Minded

Nina wished Colm Fahey could march over to Jan Van Eck’s office and tell him to give Inej back or get a mouth full of knuckles. She wished someone in this city would help them, that they weren’t so alone. She wished Jesper’s father could take them all with him. She’s never been to Novyi Zem, but the longing for those golden fields felt just like homesickness.

Earth
196.9 million square miles
7 continents
5 oceans
every bit already touched
examined
claimed
fought over
blood spilled and families split
nothing left to see that another person has not already
also witnessed
there is no more exploration
no more discovery
no more new worlds
the only pioneering on behalf of humankind
left to be done
is between the stars
and I wonder
if on the planet of the mind
of the poetic
I am an explorer
equipped with a hot hair balloon
instead of a spaceship
—  A.O.A.M. || Explorer
