wallet chain

Day Forty-Two

-A woman brought up two items, one she wanted, one for price-comparison. I am used to this. However, she insisted I give her the lower-priced item for the higher cost. I think I see where she is coming from, but this is not the place for oneupmanship. 

-I will never forget the advice that one elderly woman gave another in regards to buying clearance Halloween items. Whenever I am making a decision, her voice will echo in my head, whispering, “do it, because of YOLO.”

-I was asked to double bag $80 of Halloween decorations in the largest bags we had in stock so that a woman in her sixties would be able to hide them from her husband in the car. For my next heist, I will undoubtedly be in contact with her to plan our seamless getaway.

-A kindly, sweet man in his seventies paid for his purchase with money from a large, studded, jet-black, leather chain wallet. This man keeps Hot Topic afloat.

-A man sat on my register, setting the example for two other men to sit on adjacent registers. The trendsetter remarked, “Why stand like a chump when you can sit?” My response was almost to suggest manners as a reason, but then I realized I would be playing directly into his hands and revealing my true nature as a chump.

-I was informed by a guest that, due to the fact that the counters on the registers were just slightly taller than the carts, I was guaranteed to be a VP someday. He told me that it could be for Nickelodeon, or possibly the Bahamas, but the where does not matter when this man has so much faith in me.

-Making faces at a baby strapped to their mother’s chest resulted in the infant excitedly jumping up and down as much as one can when confined to a living straightjacket. Despite all of the fun that young one was having, the warden was having none of it.

-Entering the store, a man threw his arms out and shouted, “Hello, Target,” and I aspire to take after this man and star in my own movie at every minute.

-I asked a man if he wanted me to bag his bottle of Mountain Dew. He looked at it intensely and told me not to, as he had plans for it. I hope beyond hope that his plans involved drinking it.

This pattern is called Six Sided Byzantine. I first came up with making Byzantine with more sides than four back in 2000. If I didn’t spend so much time thinking about the chaotic and vast nature of the dimension we happen to have landed in, I might have said I invented this pattern. The more likely case is that this pattern had been done by the time I independently came up with it. And actually, I think that scenario is more interesting. I mean, if someone else had done this pattern before I did, than something about it was true enough to happen at least twice, but not many more times than two. There are few things of that nature in this universe, or things like that which we can perceive at least. All that to say, if you don’t know about an existing thing and you invent it, does that change the merit of what you brought into your world? I don’t know the answer to that question and not knowing is just fine by me. Anyway, those are my musings for today, haha 😜

if kal el landed on earth in 1987 he’d be 28/29 in 2016 but more importantly he’d be 17 in 2004 which means he probably had an american idiot t-shirt and wore it with a long-sleeved shirt underneath it. with thumbholes in the sleeves. lana lang probably looked like avril lavigne, except they were rural so she did the best she could with what smallville’s thrift stores had to offer. she probably pierced her own eyebrow even though clark kept telling her she’d get an infection. how many of those little wrist sweatbands do you think he owned. did he have a wallet chain.

Me and a good friend of mine were talking about it recently and we ended up wondering about FFXV if it had Mermaids. You wouldn’t get a whole lot of mean or harmful ones in it just due to the fact you can’t work your way into the ocean. (Not to say there wouldn’t be at all but it’d be harder since the boys are touching the sea much)
So what about Altissia having mermaids?

The ones who live there already know about them. But the chocobros really don’t.
They ride the Gondola and the people running it just know they are tourists, they haven’t seen these boys before and face it the clothes kind of show they are, and are like “keep hands and arms and everything inside the boat at all times. If you have a wallet with a chain do not let your chain hang out” and so on and they all think it’s just standard safety procedures. But then the people who run it are like “Don’t even sit on the edge just in case of a rare occurrence of a mermaid” and they get that warning for if you’re anywhere near the water don’t even look over and they all just kind of laugh it off because that must be one of those weird legends they tell to the non-locals just to pull their leg.
until it finally happens…

Maybe it was Gladio who was sitting on the side edge, and one suddenly peeks up and grabs him by the hips and pulls him in.
Or maybe Noctis had a good-luck charm that was partly dangling down and he later finds out that it’s gone, but he doesn’t know who(what) snatched it and now he’s on a wild goose chase for it.
Perhaps Ignis was cleaning his glasses and he held it out over the water, he was trying to get the sun to reflect on it to see if he missed a spot and there’s just a sudden SPLASH- it’s gone and now he’s soaked.
Or Prompto got bored and was leaning over, and he just happened to be leaning down and getting too close to the water… And suddenly there are hands at his face and something looking him directly in the eye. (maybe if the mermaid was a bold and wily one, they could pull him in for a smooch before throwing him back)
But could you imagine though? In a grand place like that, that’s already full of wonderful scenic shots just waiting to be taken, if every now and then one of them snuck their way into a picture? Or every now and then surfacing to interact with people just to sate their own curiosity. Wily mermaids who nab something off of you whenever you aren’t looking- heck some of the vendors who are set on boats are paranoid and watch over their goods like a hawk just to make sure them sneaky little mermaids didn’t snitch anything.

Hell imagine if there was some that ventured out to Galden Quey. They become somewhat of an urban legend because no one manages to get a good look at them and never has there been a clear picture, so everyone’s like “It’s just a fish. You saw only just a fish why did you show me this picture of fish tail?”
The waters near Cape Caem? Now that’s where you got to watch out. Get too close to the shore when the mermaids hang around there and someone is bound to become lost treasure.

Friends and I decided to make some ML OCs for fun!

- His name is Mathis, and he transforms into Rascal!
- The kwami likes eating stuff he finds in the garbage (kwami’s hobby: dumpster diving)
- His miraculous jewel is a wallet chain charm and the number of rings on the tail indicate his transformation time!
- Basically trashy boy with trashy raccoon kwami
- I don’t know what his powers are /weeps;;;

My Concert Going Tips/Rules

When people go with me to a concert I typically lay out a few tips for them when they go with me. I’m bored and thought I would share for those of you who have never gone to a concert.

1.) Wear closed toed shoes. Please don’t be the person who thinks they can wear sandals in the pit. Your toes will get ripped off by the end of the night and I will not help you find them.
2.) Going off of number 1, if you choose combat boots make sure they’re light and not Steele toed or heavy because if you kick me or step on me its grounds for me shoving you off of me. You’re gonna be jumping and dancing and quite possibly moshing so don’t wear anything heavy that could harm someone.
3.) Wear pants, please god always wear pants shorts just mean that your legs are going to be scratched up. People who have chain wallets, studs on their pants, or even sequins will scratch your legs to hell. Just protect your legs and wear pants.
4.) Cool yourself off by wearing either a tank top or a light short sleeve shirt. Compensated for your pants and dress light at the top.
5.) People with long hair, please put it up, I don’t want a hair sandwich during the concert.
6.) Don’t wear a lot of jewelry, like bracelets and rings and shit like that. This goes back to yet again hitting people with it.
7.) Females, looking for a good way to store your phone and keys? Men’s skinny jeans. They fit you the same as women’s but have bigger pockets. I will be investing in some of these before my concert.

So, now that we have fashion out of the way let’s go on to all the other tips I have for you.

1.) Midwesterners and east coasters: winter gets cold and some of these sadistic bands like to do winter tours. Have no fear!! Dress for the weather both inside and outside. Bring your coat but before the doors open have someone save your spot (generally people at concerts are good people and willing yo do you a favor. Both of you got there about the same time no one is going to be a dick to one another) and take your coat to the car, endure the cold for a little while and when you get out of your concert you have the best air conditioning unit in the world.
2.) In the summer and for you west coast people and those Midwestern states, take sun block!! Most of us are pale and need SPF emo. That’s perfectly fine please by all means protect your skin!! And also reapply if you’re at a festival my god.
3.) Make friends in line, you obviously have something in common. Ask questions and be friendly, it’ll make your time in line go by so much faster (take this from a girl who waited for Fall Out Boy 10 hours before the concert)
4.) Ignore those dicks that do show up. At some point in time so fuckbro dude will show up and be a dick. I’ve found the best way to handle it is ignore him unless he starts hurting someone. The moment he starts hurting someone then you and your friend that you made in line should stick up for them. Fuckbros are weak and you could easily take him down.
5.) When it comes time to enter the venue be kind to the security there don’t try to be that asshole punk kid. Punk kids are nice and we don’t stand for being assholes unless someone deserves it, and those security people do not deserve it (unless they’re the security from the all time low six flags show, man those guys were dicks)
6.) Short people, we are awesome because we can fit into small places therefore the pit is ideal, however don’t shove people out of your way, its rude and let’s them in on your plan to barricade. Your short and typically that means a crowd is easy to manipulate to your advantage sneaking up to barricade should be no issue.
7.) Tall people, let’s be honest here, no matter how sneaky short people think they are you can always see what they’re up to, but at the same time they’re short you’re tall, it won’t really hinder your concert experience if they’re in front of you, so let them think they’re sneaky.
8.) Stay hydrated!! Drink water before you go, like a lot of water. I thankfully am oddly like a camel and can survive by drinking maybe a water bottle and a half before a concert, some people are not so lucky. Please take care of yourself and stay hydrated.
9.) So, this one is my own personal preference really, but I hate flash photography at shows. In my mind I have these theme park mentality where they tell you, “please no flash photography on the ride” plus concerts tend to be pretty well lit.
10.) If someone needs to leave the pit help them out and don’t try and block them in, seriously just don’t be a dick.
11.) Enjoy your time. Emerse yourself in every opportunity you’re given, think about others, and enjoy your time.

Those are my tips and tricks.
