too much lotion

No one seems to know why there’s an orange alligator in a pond near Charleston. Residents joke the gator used too much self-tanning lotion. Residents living near the pond in Hanahan say they’ve seen the orange or rust-colored alligator a number of times. Photos show the 4- to 5-foot-long alligator on the banks of a retention pond at the Tanner Plantation neighborhood. Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says the color may come from where the animal spent the winter, perhaps in a rusty steel culvert pipe. Experts say the alligator will shed its skin and probably return to a normal shade soon. (Source)

Since having Charlie my period comes with excruciating back pain, I mean period pain has never been a walk in the park for me but at least I could slowly stroll through it with some pain killers and a heat pad.

This back pain however makes it nearly impossible for me to do anything, I can’t sleep, I don’t want to eat because it usually requires moving from the slightly comfortable position I’m in. In fact the one thing I can do with no issues is cry, and I do.

I got my period last night while Matthew was at work, so I didn’t sleep very much and I was up crying most the night.

Today Matthew is supposed to work from 1:30pm to 10pm but instead he’s here, currently playing peekaboo with our son and making him giggle while I’m currently in the very relaxing bath he made for me with my “special period bath salts” as he calls them, he promised to give me a back massage later “even with that expensive lotion you never use because it was so expensive that smells like raspberries” and I shall keep him to that promise.

I’m so incredibly grateful and lucky to have him and I try and tell him how much I appreciate everything he does for me.

The Barricade Boys at the grocery store
  • Enjloras : Always checks whether the products are locally farmed and/or produced because he wants to support the French economy. Goes on rants about the price of meat "only 2€ for a chicken?! what is it made out of, cardboard?!". Makes a point of leaving his place to pregnant people and the elderly in the checkout line.
  • Grantaire : always takes the opportunity to slide with the shopping cart. Has cart races with Bahorel. Never really looks into what's he's buying but a cool package is always appreciated. Super polite with the cashier. Lives for school supplies season.
  • Combeferre : spends hours looking at the ingredients at the back of the package, not for health concerns but because it's INTERESTING. Will get into deep philosophical discussions with the cashier without realizing it.
  • Courferyac : Adored by the cashier because he's always paying them compliments. Always forgets to buy that one thing he came to the store for. Will buy the most unnecessary shit claiming that he's going to use them but never actually does.
  • Bossuet : Break at least one thing every time he goes grocery shopping, especially pickled onion jars, so Chetta and Joly decided that he was no longer allowed to be in charge of the groceries.
  • Joly : Is the most reasonable of them all. Always careful to buy organic products and items for a balanced diet. Will avoid the butcher's stall at all cost. Buys the same products all the time and he finds himself rather annoyed when one of those runs out.
  • Jehan : Uses the self checkout because "i'm the prettiest cashier, i'll have you know". Spends way too much time in the lotion and bath products aisle. Buys the shower gels that smell like pastries.
  • Feuilly : Looks at the prices like he's balancing his checkbook and let's be honest he probably is. Will succeed in sweet talking the cashier into a discount. Has probably already worked at the store this year. Twice.
  • Bahorel : Looks all hunky and hyper masculine and buys THE PRETTIEST SHIT. Confetti cupcakes, hello kitty cookies, Frozen themed cereals. Everybody looks at him thinking he buys all that for another person so he yells "JUST SO YOU KNOW I'M BUYING THIS FOR MYSELF!" throughout the store.

anonymous asked:

so i see you enjoy neo as much as anyone else who hates themselves OTL do you have any good fic recs for the pairing?

wow that is exactly how I feel about myself and neo in general because I am the biggest SLUT for this pairing, slightly (very) bitter that I didn’t discover VIXX during neo’s golden years, and slightly disgusted at how obsessed I am with this pairing (also I hear that a lot of Starlights find the pairing cliche and overrated but I cannot find it in me to give a fuck).

But before we begin, a shameless plug by yours truly:

Grey: Taekwoon’s world bursts into violent colour (pg, soulmate!AU, fluff/angst) 

- Of Sweets and Angels: Sanghyuk wonders if an angel has come to take him to Heaven (pg13, Hunger Games!AU + girl!Hakyeon)

So anyway, fic recs. I’m a relatively new Starlight (less than half a year in) so I myself am still exploring and discovering new material for this pairing, not helped by the fact that I lost a bunch of bookmarked fics when I reformatted my phone (one of them is lost forever). Everything I read is pg13 and below because I can’t and won’t read smut (v vanila, huge prude, sorry about that). A majority of the fics I mention can be found in this masterlist here so there’s a high chance you’ve already read it. But here are some of my faves in no particular order except for the first two:

R.I.P. (Reaper In Progress): It begins and ends in the dark. (pg13, reaper!AU, fluff/angst)

  • Okay let me tell you something about this fic. I read this fic four months ago and I’ve never truly moved on. It is hands down, one of the best pieces of fiction I have ever read. Needless to say, I cried, and even now I feel like crying because I allowed myself to think about it again. If you must choose only one fic to read, read this one. Not recommended to be read in public (like I did).

Paw Prints in the Snow: His first memory is Hakyeon’s face. (pg13, wizard/familiar!AU, fluff/angst, v angst, THE PAIN, one of my absolute faves)

There’s a Ghost Upon the Moor Tonight: When Taekwoon comes back to the clearing his house stands in, he’s not able to appreciate the color of the sky that comes in hues of pink and yellow, because there’s someone sitting on his porch, throwing dead leaves all around the ghost kitty. (g, ghost whisperer!AU, slow burn)

The Silence: The first time Hakyeon heard him sing, or rather the first time he would remember it, his mother died. (pg13, banshee!AU, slow burn)

Relative Destiny: Hakyeon is clueless. Taekwoon is clueless. The people they each like are clueless. Also, Hakyeon throws things at Wonshik and Taekwoon glares at Hongbin. (pg13, college!AU, very cute & fluffy, i did a lot of kicky legs while reading this)

Untitled Maniscript: So long as there’s a reader, no story will ever truly end. Hakyeon breathes life into the pages, and wholeheartedly believes their love will be perpetual. (pg, dystopian!AU, slow burn)

Little Talks: “Give it back now.” “Try and take it.” (pg13, canonverse, fluff, v cute)

Reminice: Taekwoon used to say the winter beach looked lonely. (g, cancer!au, angst, horrible horrible angst)

- Why Won’t You Return My Calls?: Hakyeon isn’t calling or texting anymore, and even though it hasn’t even been a day, Taekwoon’s worried. (pg13, canonverse, angst, horrible horrible angst, i should really learn to love myself)

- Unlock:  Hakyeon is so close to his goal, so close to his constant ache being cured, but his travelling companions are making reaching his destination a little more complicated than he would like. (pg13, magicverse+bandits!AU, subtle neo)

You’ve Got Me Chasing Promises on the Horizon:  Hakyeon decides to jump into the great unknown. (pg, psychic!AU + muggle!hakyeon)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Quietverse series

Reticent: Taekwoon’s world exists in quiet moments. (pg, canonverse, hurt/comfort, leo-centric, more about leo’s introversion than neo but I like it a lot because of how much I am able to relate to it)

Repose: Sometimes it gets harder to drown out life. (pg, canonverse, companion piece to the Reticent, with more pronounced neo)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Golden Silence series

Selective Mutism (g, childhood friends!AU, leo has selective mutism, fluff, mostly)

(In)dependence (g, college!AU, fluff)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

bunny!leo series

*usually I feel kind of weird about hybrid!leo but this one is cute

Bunny Bunny:  “Woonie, you can’t eat flowers when you’re in your human form, okay?” (g, florist!AU + bunny!leo, fluff)

Sunshine (g, florist!AU + bunny!leo, fluff)

Carrot-Scented Hand Cream:   “You always talk about how other people smell, but you’ve never told me how I smell. Like you said Wonsik smells like feet and Hongbin smells like too much lotion…” (g, florist!AU + bunny!leo, fluff)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ok so I mentioned that I don’t read smut but in certain circumstances, I force myself to sit through it. This is caused by either wips that start off as pg but then veer into nc-17 and I’m in too deep to back out or an intriguing enough plot/summary that makes me convince myself that I can handle it (I’m wrong. Every time.) I still don’t read the sexy bits though (I skim until I don’t see any “danger” words anymore, yes I’m that lame) so I can’t tell you if the smut is good or not (not that I’m able to tell even if I read it). Anyway: 

Just Can’t Control: Hakyeon’s sexuality is Jung Taekwoon’s new hair extensions for their new concept, Hyde, and the fact of that is killing him. (nc17, canonverse, hilariously self-absorbed sexually frustrated hakyeon, A+ humour)

Cream Over Moon: Hakyeon wouldn’t have guessed that a simple request to find a pet would turn out to be such a challenging job. And there’s more to his client than he initially thought- instead of just one, he ends up finding two cats. (r, urban fantasy!AU, idk the genre, adventure? mystery? whatever it is, it’s good)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • talking about how he got so muscular
  • telling you about his day
  • telling him about your day
  • you telling him that he’s a giant compared to you
  • “why is my boyfriend so large” “i’m not that huge what are you talking about” “are you kidding me” “okay, well….”

adorem0i  asked:

Have you got any basic tips for someone who is going to be having sex for the first time?

Forget all the stories you’ve heard. Your first time should not be painful, it should feel uncomfortable but not painful. Your hyphen may or may not tear. Either way there should not be too much blood unless you’re on your period. Keep this in mind. Make sure you and your partner get tested, even if it’s your first time it may not be his (you sleep with EVERYONE they’ve slept with). Please wear a condom if it’s necessary. It doesn’t just protect you from pregnancies but from STDS too. Condoms only work 97% of the time so if you can afford the pill go on it. If none of this is accessible get plan B. I know there are coupons somewhere and if you want them message me and I’ll look for you. Overall I don’t want you to think that it’s going to be perfect, my first time involved a lot of laughing. Try and talk to your partner tell them how it feels what you want them to do. If you wanna go all out get some cute lingerie from h&m they’re cheap, use a scented body wash, try not to slather too much lotion bc if they lick you all they’re gonna taste is lotion. I missed a couple of stuff probably but I’ll end up making a post about this. Feel free to ask me if you have anymore questions.

What's your favourite thing about women

I’m going to make a list because I have a lot:

  • when they walk past you swiftly & you can smell their perfume
  • how pretty they look when they wash their face and they still have a little eye liner on
  • every woman’s legs while wearing nice heels
  • how powerful a feminine girl looks in masculine clothing
  • how elegant a masculine girl looks in feminine clothing
  • soft skin
  • when they put too much hand lotion on and they share with you
  • how pretty their voices sound when they whisper
  • the smile they make while putting on blush
  • when they wear clothes too big for them
  • the way a pregnant woman glows when she talks about her unborn child
  • how helpless they are after they paint their nails
  • happy tears
  • when a woman looks just like her mother
  • the way women can do anything a man can do but make it a million times more beautiful.
