Watch your footing, he said.

Be careful going down the stairs, he reminded you.

Don’t carry more than one bag at a time, he scolded.

You were six months pregnant. You weren’t a child or handicapped. But that’s the way Dean made you feel whenever you weren’t in his direct line of sight.

And then there was his brother.

Did you take your vitamins?

Are you drinking enough milk?

Uncle Sam made you a smoothie! It’s got Kale in it, but you can’t even taste it.

It was almost enough to make you scream. You were a grown ass woman. You could take care of yourself, god damn it!

And yet, here you were, at the bottom of the stairs.

To my friends protesting Trump and considering other direct action events, this advice applies whether you intend to be law abiding or engage in civil disobedience:
1. Water makes pepper spray worse. Use milk or liquid antacid and water*. Don’t wear contacts. Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo is also what PD trainees use when going through tear gas training, FYI.
2. If you get tear gassed, when you get home, put the contaminated clothes in a plastic bag for later decontamination and shower with cold water to avoid opening your pores.
3. Come with friends and don’t get separated. Avoid leaving the crowd and watch out for police snatch squads.
4. Beware undercovers, but beware snitchjacketing and collaborator ‘peace police’ even more.
5. Those who would prefer to see you quiet, docile, and at home are very good at combing through pictures and doxxing people. Mask up, alter your appearance.
6. Document, document, document.

*liquid antacid can scratch corneas. It’s ok in a pinch, but milk is better.

I’m craving some overnight oats and also want to try making my own oat milk so we picked up a giant bag of oats at Big Tesco tonight. 😋👌 These overnight oats are from my time in California. I added cinnamon and topped them with orange bits, pomegranate, coconut flakes and some cinnamon. I probably drizzled some agave syrup on top as well. 😇 If you’ve never made overnight oats they’re super easy. In a jar, place oats, non-dairy milk, and your favourite spices (like cinnamon). Give a good stir and cover in the fridge overnight, then enjoy them in the morning! The ratio of oats to milk depends on how liquidy you want them. 😁

I hate my fellow courtesy workers. None of them do enough work and they call in sick all the time when they just want to go dick around.
One of them will be asked to do a task and he could do it in like ten minutes, but he purposely draws it out a lot longer (sometimes over a half hour extra time taken). That same coworker has been caught sleeping in the parking garage during work. Let me clarify, he doesn’t live there, he was clocked in and supposed to be working but instead he decided to sleep downstairs.
Another not only is dense as FUCK, he’s also a fully grown man that spaces out and eye bangs me, a 17 year old girl, while working. Along with that he never does anything he’s asked. He just stands in one spot and bags horribly all the time. (Don’t put a full jug of almond milk on top of the produce in a bag that you didn’t even double up, what the hell?)
Another is the kind of person that’s annoying on purpose. He’s a 24 year old cis male that has a voice so high he sounds like he’s fucking 4. He doesn’t get stuff done and when he does do something, it’s only half of the task. He never does stuff voluntarily or even notice when there’s something that absolutely has to be done.
The only other guy in high school not only looks extremely dumb, he really is just very dumb. He himself doesn’t do too much to piss me off aside from trying to weasel out of working shifts, what pissed me off is that he only works 8.5 hours a week because of sports. I’m only supposed to be working 10 hours a week because I have severe depression and anxiety and being too stressed out makes it worse. I work 14.5 hours most weeks, last week I was assigned 18 hours. He gets to skimp on work because of sports, and I can’t even get a little ease up on the work load because I’m riddled with debilitating mental disorders and I have a god damn doctor’s note for it too. Explain how that makes any sense. It doesn’t??? Probably because the latter is illegal.
I’m the only female courtesy worker at my store. I’m 5'5.5", 17, and I look like I haven’t even said my first swear word (people are astounded when they hear me swear like a sailor for the first time around them). Despite this, I still do so much more than them because apparently I’m the only human being with autonomy when it comes to working. I shouldn’t have to do up to three or fours people’s jobs at a time. I shouldn’t have to pick up the huge amounts of work they don’t do. I’m so sick of this. These are adult men doing this. I shouldn’t have to clean up after these man babies all the time, but I do because I like my managers and I like getting money.
Sorry for being long. *

Domestic Cat kin suggestions

Here are some more suggestions for my fellow cats!

-Food
•Grab some of your favorite food (meats,cheeses,etc) and cut it into small cubes, and place them in a bowl. You can then eat them as if they were kibble!
~you can also place some of them in a bag and eat them as treats!

-Water
•grab a bowl of water or milk, and lap it up!
~keep one if your room if you’d like!

-Toys
•Grab a piece of string and attach it to something! Bat it around!
~you can also place a little toy on the end of the string for more fun!
•Buy some toy mice and such at the dollar store or pet store and play around with them!
~feathers also work!

-Bed
•Grab a large round chair or object and place blankets inside. Then, curl up inside and relax!

Hope this helped!!

alright story time. 

so when i was a kid, i wasnt allowed to make food much. mostly because i would mix things like grape juice and milk, also because the condo we lived in then wasn’t very child-proof and i could grab those knives no problem. anyway, the first time my mother deemed me old enough to survive the kitchen and make my own food, i wanted to make the most complicated thing i knew how. a turkey sandwich. but this wasn’t going to be an ordinary sandwich oh no, this was a Turkey Sandwich Deluxe. we’re talking lettuce and tomato. i know. 

i spend my sweet ass time making this sandwich too, pulling the lettuce out of the bag all by myself and cutting the tomato into even slices (i mean not really, my mom cut the tomato and i watch while eating baby carrots) and picking out the slices of deli turkey to evenly lay them across the buns. and then it was done. my masterpiece. it was art. so beautiful. i was so proud. so i plopped that sucker on a plate, carrying it out to the living room to watch some dragon tales. but before i could get to my plush pink fuzzy chair–tragedy struck. i dropped the fucking sandwich right on the goddamn carpet. i cried til snot came outa my nose and my mom made me a new sandwich but it wasnt as good. that fucking turkey on white bread stared into my soul that day. a perfect metaphor for adulthood right there in front of my innocent child eyes.

anyway i made this post because i made some toast and dropped it on my kitchen floor and cried a little bit

Voltron Carnival Shenanigans
  • Lance loves the bumper cars. Beep, beep motherfucker.
  • Buys all the cotton candy bags because he can, but mainly because he just really likes cotton candy.
  • Actual Boss at knocking down the milk bottles. 
  • Every time he wins something, he always gives his prizes to Allura. She gladly accepts them…only to give them away when he’s not looking.
  • Gets lost so fucking easily. Shiro really needs to buy a kid leash for him.
  • Tries to impress girls by testing his strength.He isn’t strong at all. 
  • Totally carries huge prizes as if he was giving it a piggy back ride.
  • He’s the one that always complains about long lines and gets multiple glares from other riders.
  • Lance hates not being able to sit next to Allura on rides and usually he never does.
  • He loves getting face paint and wearing those cheap rub on tattoos.
  • actual five year old
  • Keith says he’s too cool for rides.
  • …and then he proceeds to buy $20 in tickets only to ride the same ride over and over again (it’s the Scrambler).
  • Never gets dizzy. Ever.
  • You know that game where you have to throw a small ring around the even smaller opening of a bottle? Yeah, well, Keith is an ace at that game. Lance really hates him for it, but usually relents when Keith gives him the prize. Keith just doesn’t like having to carry them.
  • Despite Lance’s teasing, Keith really loves corndogs. 
  • Keith is a total lagger, always takes his time to get to rides. Everyone has to drag him to get on other rides that aren’t the Scrambler.
  • Secretly he enjoys every ride though, he’s the one smiling the widest in each picture that has a camera on the ride.
  • Pidge is all about the Gravitron. She’ll ride it endlessly but honestly she loves every thrilling ride.
  • She always screams the loudest.
  • Brought her drone and is flying it around. She uploads the video to YouTube, probably.
  • The key to her heart are candy apples.
  • She is the one who always has a drink in her hand. She loves them frozen lemonade drinks.
  • Because of this she has to go to the bathroom every five minutes.
  • Pidge loves playing the mini-game that involves throwing darts at balloons. She never misses!
  • Sometimes gets mistaken for a little kid. Adults would ask her if she lost her parents. (“No. I’m here with my friends.”)
  • Hunk must be a fish because he just really loves water-based rides. His absolute favorite is the log flume.
  • Will totally make silly faces for the camera. Smile!
  • Always brings his handy-dandy backpack fit with a first aid kit, water bottles, snacks, a disposable camera, and…is that…a portable DVD player? (”It’s for when we’re waiting in lines, okay?”)
  • This boy is all about funnel cake. He buys at least five plates every night.
  • As soon as someone says their feet hurt, Hunk will not hesitate to give them a piggyback ride. Say goodbye to your dignity, friend.
  • Hunk loves THE PETTING ZOO. He will pet and cuddle with every animal he can (even the chickens!).
  • Sometimes he tries to take the animals with him but Shiro always catches him. (”No, Hunk we can’t take the goat with us!”) 
  • Shiro loves the Zipper. He finds it so fun and usually he rides it with Coran or Keith because everyone else is too scared to ride it.
  • Every year he has to head to the help desk because he’s lost everyone. Its happened so often that as soon as an officer sees Shiro (alone, of course) come into view, he immediately makes an announcement.
  • He’s insanely good at every mini-game. Anytime he wins, however, he’ll usually give away his prizes to passing children, or Allura ( she keeps Shiro’s prizes).
  • But also, as insanely good as Shiro is, the only time he loses is when on purpose. Say, for instance, when competing against children, he’ll purposely lose just to see the look on their faces. He gets so excited for them by congratulating them. He’s just so proud for some reason.
  • Accidentally buys 10 turkey legs when its time eat.  
  • He eats them all and doesn’t share.
  • Allura is so entranced with the carousal. She rides it multiple times just so she can use each and every horse/lion/griffon.
  • She’s the only one who rings the bell when it comes to the strength test.
  • Everyone’s so impressed. Especially Coran! (“That’s my girl!”)
  • She’s the one who wants to buy silly souvenirs such as the Caricatures.
  • Absolutely adores the plastic inflatable animals. Her favorite is the pink dog.
  • Buys a lot of kettle corn and shares it with Coran.
  • She is the one to always initiate photo opportunities for Hunk to take.
  • Coran makes it his personal mission to ride every ride available. Even the kiddie ones that no else wants to ride. 
  • He’ll ride them by himself.
  • His favorite is the Haunted Mansion.
  • Maybe ruins the ride by pointing out every flaw in which makes the scary animatronics fake.
  • He has to hold Hunk’s hand because he’s the one that’s most afraid of the ride.
  • Gets over excited every time someone wins something. Especially Allura. He’s her number one fan.
  • He enjoys eating the kettle corn but his favorite food is anything deep fried. Deep fried twinkie? Why not!
  • He always enters in the art gallery competition for macoroni art. He always wins 1st place.
  • At the end of the night they all ride the Ferris Wheel since they all like to see the lights from above. Lance tries to ride with Allura but she always takes Coran or Shiro to ride with her. Hunk and Pidge usually share a cart as well leaving Lance reluctantly to ride with Keith.

dimension-warper  asked:

hopefully i'm not too late to the milk nonsense, but u can buy bagged milk in switzerland too

you are Never too late for the milk nonsense. it’s like an undead being that i’ve become accustomed to. i’ll deal with it, lay it to rest, and then a few weeks later it’ll come knocking on my door and toss my furniture around a bit. then i’ll make us some cookies (no milk) and politely kick it back into its grave.

but huh. i did not know that. do you also do the weird container things? bc i’ll be honest my default thought for bagged milk is that it’s like boxed wine w the lil tap and everything.

aliciavspinnet  asked:

If we were dating i would buy u bagged milk for our anniversaries and you'd become more fluent in kiwi slang (cause ya know hanging out with me and all that) (also i'd probs send u lotsa memes cause that is tru luv)

kate lets just start dating rn because i am 110% ready for this relationship.

EXO M Imagine - Snow Day

A lot of fluff ahead lol. Anonymously requested :

Kris

Mr. Cold Guy would be in his natural habitat. He would hold your hand tightly because he said he wanted to keep you safe from slipping, even though he would be the one who kept tripping. He’d also spend the day persuading other members and you to take candids of him.

You : “Hey Kris? That pose isn’t really the most natural pose for a ‘candid’ shot.”

Kris : *sighs and mutters about how no one other than him understands anything about posing and being cool while doing the splits in the middle of a snowy field*

Lay

Yixing would be a sweetheart and have packed 12 mugs of hot chocolate milk into his bag. No one knows how he did it, and he isn’t that sure either. When he starts handing out the hot beverages to the 11 other members and you, everyone thanks him gratefully. However, you alone realise that he forgot to pack a drink for himself, and shyly offer to share yours with him. He is pleasantly surprised by your offer, and gratefully takes it up, because he was feeling a little cold himself. The two of you would be caught up with each other all day, stuck in your own little bubble, and spend a perfect day together.

Chen

All members in EXO would be caught in a crazy snowball fight while you tried making a snowman by yourself. When you finished rolling 3 large snowballs and was struggling to lift the second largest snowball on top of the largest one, you heard a voice say, “here, let me do this,” and saw Jongdae easily place the snowballs on top of each other. You pout because he’s so much stronger than you and he laughs because you’re being too cute. He ends up hugging you to cheer you up, and smiles because you’re in his arms, and that’s all he wants.

Tao

He would take 100 selfies by himself, and another 200 would you. He’d be so cute and happy because the lighting is good, the scenery is beautiful, and he gets to spend time with his favourite people especially you ;).

Xiumin

He’s wearing 1874832 layers but he’s still so cold. He stands near you and Luhan for body warmth, and you hold his hands. He warms up gradually, and happily spends the afternoon and evening with you and the rest of the members, and never once drops your hand.

Luhan

Luhan would be slightly disappointed when it started snowing, because it meant that he couldn’t play soccer outside, but cheers up when all members and you bring him sledding. He was originally kinda freaked out by how steep and tall the slope was, but you take his hand and ask him softly if he’d please toboggan once with you. He agrees to, and slides down the slope with you in his arms.

Hope you all enjoyed this lol

EXO K version will be published soon :))

Ruga's Effortless Crockpot Cream of Broccoli Soup

For the tired, the broke, and the hungry.

Hey kids, I’m back with another low-cost meal that can really save the day when you’re at the end of a paycheck and also super hungry. Makes leftovers (or serves more than one person, at least) and is great if you’re busy or just don’t have the energy to stand around in the kitchen and cook dinner.

This is a crockpot recipe, by the way!

Ingredients:
1 Bag Frozen Broccoli (whole broccoli is cheaper than just the florets, and they’ll soften with the long cooking time)
1 Bag shredded carrots
2 cans cream of [your choice*] soup, (low sodium if you can find it)
Black pepper
Water or milk (as needed)

*I use cream of celery to make it vegetarian, but cream of chicken works, as does cream of mushroom – pick what you like! You can also use one can of “cream of” soup and one cheddar cheese soup for creamy broccoli cheddar soup!

Steps:

1. Open your cans of soup and pour them into your crockpot

2. Thin the soup with enough water or milk that it has the consistency you like – I pick the consistency of pourable gravy.

3. Add your frozen broccoli and your shredded carrots - the carrots add a little sweetness and some extra vitamins.

4. Season liberally with black pepper.

5. Turn your crockpot to low and let it cook for 6-8 hours. I don’t suggest cooking this on high as it sometimes causes the soup to separate. It doesn’t make it inedible, but it’s not as pretty!

Suggestions:

- This is vegetarian by default, but you can always add bacon (which you can buy pre-cooked and pre-chopped (though it’s somewhat expensive) in your grocers refrigerated section. You can also add baco-bits (which are vegan!) at the end for some crunch and smokiness.

- Not a fan of broccoli? You can use cauliflower if you like that, or even potatoes for a cream of potato soup. You can buy both frozen diced potatoes and frozen cauliflower in the freezer section of your grocer.

- A little of your favorite hot sauce added at the end can elevate this dish from “good” to “great” by removing the inherently “canned” flavor that canned soups bring to the table.

** If you can find low sodium soups, I suggest using them instead, because canned creamed soups have a very high sodium content that may not be appropriate for the average persons dietary needs.

Also IDK why I haven’t seen this before, so I’m going to do this:

Imagine Kurapika still not knowing how to use certain modern technologies when he is with Leorio, like he doesn’t know about a microwave and he’s in awe that this contraption can heat up his soup or can pop this bag of seeds to make popcorn!

Or maybe a blender and he is staring and watching as the strawberries and milk are blended into his favorite strawberry milkshake Leorio always makes him.

OR imagine how Kurapika must’ve reacted when he got his iPhone. Remember how shitty it looked during Yorknew? It was probably because he didn’t know how it worked and maybe almost broke it himself a handful of times. Maybe it died and he tried getting a new one but the workers explained to him that no, there’s a charger and explaining how to use it to him and he’s all like ‘ooo, fascinating!’

JUST IMAGINE KURAPIKA INTERACTING WITH TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE FIRST TIME

Ahki’s parents left one morning and she never saw them again. She woke up to a silent house, their bed neatly made and their bags and walking sticks gone, as if they were only out for a hike, except they weren’t back by lunch, or dinner, or nightfall, or the next morning.

She waited a full week before she told anyone. Didn’t make a fuss of anything; went to school and did the chores and cooked and brought milk over to the neighbors and just kept doing the normal things and waiting. (The only difference is that she slept in their bed, too big for her, covers rumpled around her where she curled in the middle, breathing in the smell of their sheets.)

She wouldn’t have said anything, she knows. Would have just kept living her life, until one of their nosey relatives poked their head in and demanded to know where her parents were. Except she had the dream: a golden road and two figures walking it, hand in hand, and Ahki watching from the doorway, and one of them pausing and turning to look at her, an indistinct black silhouette, and her mother––she knows it was her mother, the way you know things in dreams––gestured, come on, honeybee, and Ahki stepped out of the door and onto that road and a voice spoke to her, said words she can’t recall that settled deep in her gut. And then she woke up, and the next day she went over to Auntie Tekla’s house and told her what happened, and Auntie Tekla took her in and started a search but no one ever found them, or even knows where they went. It’s like they vanished into thin air. 

So that’s the last Ahki saw of them. Sometimes she thinks maybe she’ll find them on their golden road, if she travels far enough, but she doesn’t worry too much about it. They were happy on that road. She’ll catch up soon enough.

symphoniclolita replied to your post “realm-of-spells replied to your post: You know a…”

I… I am only few provinces over and have never experienced milk-in-bag I don’t know why this is a canadian stereotype

omgs does that mean it’s actually mainly a québec thing

pls tell me it is I wanna add it to the list of “canadian stereotypes that actually are mainly québec stuff”

like

maple syrup mainly comes from here (and a bit in ontario)

oh wait no I think the bagged milk is also a thing in ontario
