Ok but as a white person I can PROMISE you all that the stereotypes about white people and spicy food is so true, especially about my WASP-ass mom, who will gladly cook a chicken and season it only with salt, who tried to make “chili” without chili peppers/seasoning (so basically she was making tomato-bean soup)
…and who thinks pepperoni is too spicy. Pepperoni.
We’re back a little later this week but with a great episode to get you through this Good Friday that we hope you all will enjoy.
In this week’s episode we talk about last week’s hot topics (sorry about that) but the focus is on an ask we got from one of our loyal listeners regarding the 15 year anniversary of the passing of the late great Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes as we all our memories of TLC as a group and who else we choose as our favorite 90s girl groups, so pull up an earbud and take a listen because their are a few hidden gems on our lists.
Hi mama! I'm exhausted and hungry, but I saw this was open and I had to ask. What would everyone's favorite kind of coffee be, if they had to choose one?
I have no idea about coffee and I’ve only been to a starbucks once. But Jean would totally be a pumpkin spice latte person, Levi would be an espresso person, Mikasa Latte Macchiato, and Sasha just drinks whatever coffee she can find. Connie on the other hand only drinks milk with Coffee. Eren’s favorite coffee is Turkish espresso.
ooooh please kiri + bathroom and/or (like you want lovely person ♥) denki + bedroom (*u*) thanks your blog is amazing and you're adorable (>u<) !
How does the character prepare in the morning?
Rolls out of bed after his alarm has been beeping for 10 mins and shuffles to get all his clothes on. It’s early morning and the only way to wake up is to go for a jog. Then he comes back and heads straight to the kitchen.
Do they sing in the shower?
Ofc. What’s the point otherwise? It’s the best place to sing and he listens to the radio whenever he’s in there.
What kind of hair product/make-up do they use?
Either he’s using his quirk or a metric fuck-ton of hairspray.
How clean is this character?
So so. He’s not a complete slob and makes sure he always has clean clothes and bedding, outside of that there’s no order to the way he stores things.
Does the character have thousands of shampoo/shower gel bottles by the shower, or do they use only the bare essentials?
He gets gifted a lot at Christmas and it’s usually enough to last him the year. Totally loves Old Spice just because of Terry Crews.
Who in your OTP carries them from the couch/car to the bed? There are two of them so it’s a challenge for one person to do it in one trip! Especially now that they are five years old, it takes both you and Rafi to get them up to bed. But when they were younger, you used to love watching Rafi balance the two of them on his hips and march them to their bedroom.
And who soothes the kids after a nightmare? It’s always Rafael. You used to be jealous about this for a while, before you realized that you got a lot more sleep. Now you know that Rafael actually cherishes the fact that they come to him for comfort. The twins barely see much of their father during the day, but at night, he is their knight in shining armor.
Usually if one twin has a nightmare, it’s the other that comes to get Rafi, so he ends up sprawled out on the floor in their room with both of them sleeping in his arms. It’s quite the picture when you wake up to an empty bed and find him asleep on a beanbag with a blanket that doesn’t quite cover his feet because he wanted to make sure the girls were warm enough. You’re sure it is the cause of his back problems!
So late last night there were a couple of guys walking along the outside of my back fence with torches shining. They weren’t technically doing anything wrong, but…
So I decided to cast a series of protection spells around my property. The numbers 5, 7, and 9 have traditionally been associated with protection, so I cast 5 spells, using a total of 7 herbs/spices/botanicals, and 9 knots in the string of one of the spells.
1. Black and White Protection Powder.
Grind whole black pepper and sea salt. Blend together and sprinkle around the boundaries of your home
2. Charm Bag.
Into a red charm bag put salt, rosemary, and ashes from the hearth. Before binding, tie nine knots into a length of twine. Use this to bind the charm bag, tying nine knots to tie it tight. Hide this charm bag near the entrance to your home.
Carved five protective sigils into a fragrant wax cube, then melted in an oil burner.
4. Threshold Protection.
Grind up chamomile, St John’s Wort, and fennel seeds into a rough powder. Pour this in a line across the threshold under the doormat.
5. Compass Sentinels.
Cut a cinnamon stick into four equal lengths, and cast these strongly at the four points of the compass around your property.
Now I’m feeling quite drained, but I can definitely feel a strong aura of protection all around the house and yard, like an invisible dome. Each spell is doing it’s job, but more than that they are interacting and interweaving with each other, binding together in a deeper spell.
Disclaimer: as always, magical methods should always be done to enhance mundane methods. We’ve got dogs, house alarms, and well lit yards.
This is my cat, Kimby. His fur absorbs whatever smell is lingering in the air. Whenever I am cooking he would smell like whatever dish is simmering on the stove. Sometimes he smells like my guy’s aftershave lotion. I put a pumpkin-spice wall plug-in from Bath and Body Works in our kitchen yesterday. When I picked him up this morning, his hair smells like pumpkin spice! He totally smells like fall! :)
Call me “crazy cat lady” – I am totally head over heels in love with my cat!
