Cat adventures

Almost killed the dumb cat. We learned that he doesn't seek shelter and he also doesn't make any noise to indicate he's right outside, he just stays there in the cold all night. Despite this we're still letting him out because he's still scared of litterboxes.

Some girls came by and were confused to see the smart cat in the window, because apparently they're trying to track down some strays someone else has been feeding.

"Oh, that can't be her," I said, "she hates people."

"It's a stray cat terrified of anyone getting near it," they said.

"Oh. In that case it's definitely my cat you've been feeding. Sorry about that."

And pudding cat continues to be a fat fat pudding cat. She moves with the majesty of a whale.

Fruiting

AOOOOOOOO and FFN.

In which I remind everyone that you don't say your ipod has gone renegade if somebody else walks off with it.

HOT TOPIC ANIME GIRL

I was starting to feel bad because maybe your parents threw out stuff you actually wanted but that was before we reached the layer of unused gift cards and digital cameras.

WHY DON'T YOU JUST DONATE STUFF

we are now in hour two of cataloging THE PILE
half of it was already wrecked because it's WINTER and snow
YOU SEEM TO HAVE DELIBERATELY PUT A FUCKING SLAB ON TOP
OUT OF SPITE OR SOMETHING

TOYS
EXPENSIVE TOYS
WHAT SORT OF MONSTERS ARE YOU

Flowering

Over on AOOOOOOOOOOO and FFN.

In which it's considered that just because Rose is better at dealing with other people by the low standards of gems doesn't mean she's good at it.

Glad to have this finished, it's part of why I haven't been getting enough reviewing done.

Budding

FFN and AOOOOOOOO.

In which a pearl grows very slightly closer to an important decision.

Should obviously have been doing reviews or at least updating a pokemon story so the flood of angry reviews it'll get will make any sense, but...

Quartz-Rose and not-owned Pearl

The new Steven Universe episode seems to be contradicting all the Pink Diamond stuff I hate and also the basis for evil Rose stuff too! Best episode.

I am full of so much gleeful schadenfreude I might end up posting on tumblr, even! We'll see.
So this enraged me when I first saw it and I still want to complain about it so let's cap this year off with that.

This is easily half of what I hate about Steven Universe fandom chatter. "A character did a thing I identify with! Therefore it must be for precisely the same reason as I do it, and also they must be exactly like me in all other ways! Peridot knows stuff about a thing? I know stuff about a thing too! It must be because she's super into knowing stuff about a thing for no reason, and not because that was her job, because none of this could possibly have to do with anything but the one way I identify with the character!!! Neither are the ways she doesn't act like this relevant! All of it, every last bit, must be them being LITERALLY ME! While I'm doing this, I'll also completely ignore that the other half of what I'm talking about actually applies to the rest of the characters, because this one is LITERALLY ME and all others are NOT ME AT ALL and it's not like characters can have a variety of traits instead of this binary because representation is important."

2016 prediction: Jasper eventually gets out of the ocean and gets freaked out with things touch or restrain her and this proves she is so incredibly autistic because she has sensory processing problems, meanwhile the rest of the cast continues to be completely terrible at understanding other people's feelings despite good intentions on all sides, it's probably definitely because they're garbage people who are terrible.

Putting the cat back in Catmass



I really do love Christmas, especially doing stuff to the presents. Every present I wrapped this time is actually two presents, but the second one is hidden.

I'm the only one in my family who does this. Also the only one who stays up late. Possibly a connection there.
