sensible price


do you get the feel that in the seven-ish years between blackwatch tactigoth chastity belt mccree and yeeehaw larp mccree he lost sight of what constitutes a reasonably sized packer

he went from a sensibly priced 4″ cyberskin to the POWERJACK 4KHDR™ MAGNUM MAXXSAC™ CUSTOM COLOR BLEND as his daily driver and tbh i support him in living his thick meaty truth

I’m sharing a little peek of my new and improved room today, along with a very silly kitty called Bass and the book I’m currently reading. I’d planned to go out to take photos in my new blouse and old pinny but the weather just wasn’t in a cooperative mood that day! So I just squished the life out of Bass while my live-in BFF snapped a few photos.

A little about the blouse I’m wearing which was sent to me by Calae, an up and coming plus size brand recently launched online. I’ve talked before about the dearth of plus sizes in India, so it’s heartening to see retailers here wanting to cater to plus size women. To quote directly from the brand manifesto - Calae is a style driven line of clothing for the self assured curvy woman, with international standards, fits that fit, and sensible price points. The launch collection mostly has cute and super wearable tops including this summery floral blouse that I picked. Fitwise, the line runs very true to standard international (UK) sizing. I went with the 18 as I usually wear a UK18 in tops, and the fit is just as comfortable as I prefer with enough room for movement - especially in the upper arm which is where I struggle with most Indian brands. The range currently runs from size 16-24, and it’s my sincere hope that Calae expands their sizing upwards in the future. Overall I give them a solid thumbs up of approval.  

Wearing: Blouse ℅ Calae // Cord pinafore from Primark // Bass not for sale ;)

Last time on Hannibal: It was like this European fairy tale in which Will & Hannibal were snails in love? That sounds about right.

This time on Hannibal: All your weirdo side-faves, weirdoing together again.

Ok my friends we are going to have to level about something right up front here, and it is: I FUCKING LOVE FREDERIC CHILTON. Yes, yes I know he’s terrible, he’s awful — he’s a raging narcissist & sleezy & manipulative and I adore him, because….he’s just so terrible at everything? He’s like this derpy inept wolf and everything he does is hilarious to me. And then you go and have him played by Raúl Esparza, who has his slightly Hannibal-askew comedy tone so on lock that he’s like a masterclass in camp villain acting, and I’m lost. I love Chilts. You just need to know this because, well…..

Season 3, Episode 4: Aperitivo

The episode begins and it’s bang-on CHILTON TIME, a return to my darling despicable Frederick getting shot in the face. What’s that look like in slow motion and micro-detail? It’s gross, don’t worry about it. Let’s skip ahead to when he’s still gross, but like in an interpersonal way, and also aalliiiiiive.


Ok ok I just had to get that joke out of my system, we’re good now.

I spend most of the day at home during the week because we only have one car right now, the bus stop is a mile away (which would be fine on high spoon days if it weren’t dangerously hot) and I have a limited amount of money to spend on Lyft or Uber.  Luckily Trevor gets off fairly early in the day, especially since they start at 2 or 3 am when it’s this hot. I’ve also been getting up extremely early, at least for me. 

Anyway, my food habits have changed extensively because of this.

Early Morning: smoothie, then I go for a walk

Mid Morning: toast with peanut butter and honey, tea

Lunch: something with a  lot of vegetables, usually meatless

Sometimes I’ll have a small snack in the afternoon then when Trevor gets home we go out for “dinner” (though this is usually 3 in the afternoon) and I get whatever the hell I want (within a sensible price range.)

So then I might have a snack sometime before I go to bed around 10 or 1030.

I don’t know if this has made any difference in my weight, negative or positive, but I feel a lot better.

Where do you get your seeds from? I have had good germination rates with cactusplaza and a few other big companies on amazon but I am tempted by the price and variety available on aliexpress, even though half their pictures are bizarrely photoshopped and quality seeds for 20p seems unlikely. Worth a try or not?

Absolutely not.

I buy almost all of my seeds from Ebay. First I check that the seller has good feedback, or at least the seeds are listed for a sensible price, and I make sure to avoid anything with misleadingly photoshopped images.
Avoid any listing with a vague title or description. Often good sellers will say in the description where the seeds were collected from, and when, so you know how fresh they are. At the very least, a good seller will give some habitat information or other specifics. See if it looks like the seller cares about their customers and about what they are selling. :)
Currently, my favourite Ebay seller is Kenni Koala Seeds, who is based in Australia but ships all over the world (you have to log in on Australian Ebay to be able to get a combined total for the postage). They stock a huge range of unusual cacti and succulents, their prices and shipping are great and I’ve had excellent germination rates. 
I also really like samu.babyplant, who is based in Italy, and is particularly good for ordering large quantities of seeds from.
Since you’re in the UK too, I’ll give my honest opinion on our two most successful and well known exotic seed sellers on Ebay (23ng23 and bsquared_1). They are okay. I do sometimes buy from them, as both have low prices. I don’t think they have the freshest seeds, as I never get a great germination rate from either seller, but they do always send the correct species, and there’s enough germination for me to try buying from them if I can’t find the species I want elsewhere. 

The BCSS have a yearly seed list, from which it sells on a first come first served basis. It’s published along with the December issue of the quarterly magazine. It’s worth becoming a member if you’re not already, having a look on their forums, and perhaps joining the Facebook group
In groups and forums you may also find individuals who swap or sell seeds they have harvested, or you may even discover individuals with catalogues.

I think everyone agrees that Cactusplaza is an excellent source for seeds and live plants. I’ve also heard very good things about SuccSeed, and will probably make an order from them this winter. 

I’ve never bought seeds/plants from Amazon as I’ve found that those sellers appear worryingly impersonal, but I’m glad to hear that you’ve had success, so I shan’t be so dismissive of them in future! 

I hope that was helpful! :)


Edit : Oh crap I forgot. This dude is for sale. I’ll be totally open to any sensible offers (considering going prices for a WK) through pm and would have no probs adding changes before he’s finished up, including the base.

Bit more work on my baby at last. Decided to ignore my previous idea to have white areas and went with complete start black for the helm. Edge highlighting on the sword has just started and it’s one of the last WIP segments still, it and the grills, which needy a tidy pass and rehilight.

These photos really are not great and warped his colours a bit, but I am toooo tired to take proper ones! This is basically just an update :)
