On a side note

Any of you a whiz at semi-appraising things online? I want to know if I’m getting a good deal and I’m not having much luck myself. It was $1500 and when she got no other offers, she accepted my $700 (which I am spending with clenched fists. Good lawd, that’s a lot of money just to wash my ass!). I’ve seen the inside and there’s only one small stain near the drain, and I’m assuming no cracks to the cast iron. I also can’t identify the feet it’s sitting on. They look like dog paws with gold fingernails. It’s 5 1/2 long, 2’10” wide and 2’ tall.

I also welcome any wisdom from those who aren’t followers and found me by the tags. That would be great. New friends!

Just got the email back that I will be able to pick up my “new” bathtub this weekend!

I’ve always wanted a clawfoot!

AND IT’S RED!

ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.

ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg….

I cannot emphasize enough my INFPness.

People are happy with a replica. They like watching a movie on an iPhone rather than watching it in a real theatre. They’re okay with that. They’re okay with going to Vegas and seeing a recreation of the Eiffel Tower than actually seeing the real Eiffel Tower. I think that there was a time when that was like ‘No, you didn’t go to Paris, you went to a theme park!’ It’s just interesting how we’re okay with that now. That’s good enough. I don’t think that’s good enough. If a new Andy Warhol came out right now, I think what he would become is a quick Instagram photo shot or a quick Vine thing or something on the internet on Tumblr or something. Those are the artists that I feel sorry for right now are the sculptors and the painters because they become a quick email or instant message or something. ‘Hey check out this cool painting!’ ‘Oh, wow. That’s cool.’ Then they go on to the next thing. That guy worked for six months on that. He really broke new ground and it just becomes a quick thing on your phone to just scroll through and that’s just not really respectful to that.

Get Lost In My Gazing Ball Eyes starring Charlie B. Punkin

Just finished thawing a package of Rolos I forgot in the freezer earlier in my armpit.

AND, they are Rolos I bought for my kid but forgot to tell him because they were a little melted, hence putting them in the freezer.

I’m eating them now.

In the way, way out

I know we’ve been through this before, when I moved further out in the country and told you I wouldn’t have internet service but AT&T actually did service my area and so I lied inadvertently and was able to stay and play? This time it’s VERY true. We’re moving too far out for any services. I have spoken with EVERY possible internet provider and am unable to get anything except tv. Here, let me show you a picture:

That little tack is in a blob of white. It looks the same in every company’s coverage map.  LOOK HOW CLOSE THE RED IS TO US.

It appears we bought us a goddamn geographic anomaly.

BUT, the fates have spoken, and I have not only been forced into getting a cellphone, I’m getting a fucking iphone and a tablet with 10 gigs*. I’m told that’s not very much and if I internet too often I’ll have to pay more so I’ll be able to still log on sometimes, but not as often as before. And I’m told definitely no netflix, youtube, or xbox live. Fuck.

I am a little excited about REALLY leaving everything behind, but I’m also pretty nervous. I know this has been our plan, to make our exit from society, but now that it’s here, I have butterflies and feel kinda queasy when it all hits me over again.

I suppose I will be too busy with chickens and pigs and crafting witch’s brew from my garden, but I am gonna miss using a computer and having a landline. How the fuck did our choice to live more primitively end up with me owning that shit? Control grid, man.

I thought about posting before pictures of our house to show the difference when we’re through with it, but I was too embarrassed. The place looks AWFUL. But, we bought it for the land, and this is only a temporary place until we get the earthship built. In five years.

Maybe by then we’ll have regular friggin internet.

I have 15 days left of convenience. Gonna make em’ count.

*What exactly the fuck is a “gig”, and why are they so expensive?

Why do white people own so many pets?
Because we’re not allowed to own people anymore.

What is the scariest thing about a white person in prison?
You know he did it.

how many Chicago cops does it take to change a light bulb? None, they just beat the room for being black.”
*****
A good looking 50 year old white man is trying to get laid on reality TV. What show are you watching?
To catch a predator.
*****
Why do white girls travel in groups of three or five?
They can’t even
*****
What do you call 64 white people in a room? A full blooded Cherokee.

from various reddit threads

at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke.  nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.

white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response.  tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.

This got a quick, soft laugh out of me. A bit like a lunatic.

Of note is the deeply red star in the lower-left of the picture. That’s a carbon star, one whose makeup is a mixture of carbon and oxygen. The mixture on the outer layers creates a red color (from carbon monoxide being created) but inside the star is carbon in a state of plasma.
What does this mean? Well one might think of it as a star made of diamonds that are so hot that they don’t simply sparkle reflected light, they absolutely emanate light and energy of their own accord.
