My parents’ house creeps me out

My parents’ house creeps me out

It had since I lived there, but it gets worse when people aren’t regularly around. Every time I go in there, it feels like someone has been there...and maybe still is. Today there was water on the floor in the kitchen that appears to have leaked out of two jugs that have been sitting untouched under the butcher block. We were just there on Friday and they weren’t leaking then, and they didn’t...

Fuck this world

Fuck this world

One of my dearest friends was accosted on his way to work by a man with TRUMP scrawled across his tank top, demanding my friend prove he was American by dancing with a hula hoop or pay the guy money because he’s “higher up the food chain”. Oh, and of course “go back where you came from”. Obviously the dude was super unhinged, but motherfuck. My friend was adopted from Colombia as an infant and...

Ferret update

Ferret update

Spring is ok! We just wrapped up at the vet. Everyone there was amazing and instantly fell in love with him. He did rip one nail clean off, but the doc says the nail bed looks good and it should grow back as long as he doesn’t screw with it. We have some anti-inflammatory and an antibiotic to head off infection. We don’t need his toe amputated! I apparently did an excellent job trimming his...

My poor baby ferret

My poor baby ferret

It looks like he managed to rip off one claw entirely and split two others!!! I am despondent! He was playing in our bedroom, and it looks like he caught one claw on the doggy stairs and split the others trying to free himself. Based on the blood trail, he then retreated deep into my closet. I had to trim the split nails so they don’t split farther, and it made him bleed more and I don’t know...

We got a diagnosis!

We got a diagnosis!

And it’s exactly what I thought it was! My suspicions were correct, TeenSparrow and I have EDS. Not like she’s the freaking poster child for it or anything. Once the dots connected for the doctor, she actually said “oh my gosh, you are just the archetype”. This is so validating. It explains EVERYTHING we have both dealt with our entire lives, and I have you amazing folks to thank for pointing...

Spacer for sad

We’ll be saying goodbye to our sweet Mephistopheles this evening. He’s barely left the back of our closet for days and yesterday he stopped eating entirely. Now he’s wetting himself, and I can tell his kidneys just done. Luckily I was able to schedule an in-home service so we can make his final moments as peaceful as possible. We’ve known this was coming, but shit. TeenSparrow...

My uncle was a sick man (TW just...bad shit)

My uncle was a sick man (TW just...bad shit)

Spacer here for anyone who wants to skip this, but I’ve got to get it out

So, I posted here a few months ago when my uncle passed and explained some of the history. He sexually abused my mother (his little sister) when he was an adolescent and it had ripple effects that severely impacted our lives. I’ve long lived with question marks floating around me wondering if she was his only victim. I...

Heart-in-your-throat moments

Heart-in-your-throat moments

I had lunch with TeenSparrow yesterday, and our waiter looked so much like her biological “father” that I nearly choked on my tongue. I actually thought it was him for a full thirty seconds before I realized this guy was at least ten years my junior. He was a great server, and the lunch was really good, but I was so distracted the entire time. Now I’m honestly wondering if they’re related; I...

I just accidentally ate hazelnut UPDATE: I’m alive!

I just accidentally ate hazelnut UPDATE: I’m alive!

And I’m pretty allergic. Oops. Should have read the ingredients on that chocolate first. Oh well, Benadryl and bed it is.

ETA: I passed out so fast after posting last night, and in this morning’s brain fog clean forgot I’d even done it. I’m groggy but the fam let me sleep in. Luckily I didn’t get a whole lot of hazelnut, I just stupidly ate a candy without reading the ingredients. The...

Omg animals 

Omg animals 

Got home from dinner with extended family tonight (please, never again) and vaguely heard “eeeeeoooooowwwww” coming from the hallway. TeenSparrow is out for the night, and apparently her cat has gotten herself shut in a room somewhere. For about 4.5 hours. I opened TS’s door; no cat. “Eeeeoooowwwww” from farther down the hall. Opened the bathroom door; same. Office door;...

Trying to keep on task

Trying to keep on task

I’m making dinosaurs for TeenSparrow’s birthday cake, and it’s been hell staying motivated. I enjoy the work, but it gets frustrating and tedious. So far I have the wire and foil skeletons for my brontosaurus and a headless t-rex. I’m not totally sure yet how I’m going to make the head. Next up is a Carnotaurus, which will be basically the same as the rex, then a mososaurus (spelling?). Well,...

Pet selfies?

Pet selfies?

I’m up later than usual on a weeknight and in a suddenly excellent mood. For whatever reason, I decided to introduce TeenSparrow’s bf to the one pet he hadn’t met yet: our python Kaa. So I brought her out, and she’s being just ridiculously sweet and snuggly, and I just can’t stand to put her away! I mean, look at this!

She’s been draping herself all about me for almost two hours now. This...

Fuck insurance companies

Fuck insurance companies

I just confirmed that I’m going to need six crowns on my front teeth. My history of bulimia and the vomiting caused by my chronic migraines have worn the enamel down to the point that it’s just a matter of time until a tooth breaks. I’ve been using prescription toothpaste for over a year, and the damage is progressing. To add insult to injury, insurance won’t cover a goddamn dime unless or...

I have a nephew!

I have a nephew!

I’m not allowed to tell Facebook yet, so I’m telling all of you first! My sister in law gave birth a little after 12 this morning to a beautiful baby boy. TeenSparrow is happy because his birthday is three months to the day after hers. We’re headed out to see them in about three weeks, so I’m glad he didn’t hold on too much longer. I’m so happy for them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen people so...

I think I hate these people (OT about what’s pissing you off/whatever)

I think I hate these people (OT about what’s pissing you off/whatever)

There’s a rental house just down the street from us, and I swear to dog every group who moves in there is worse than the last. Every person who moves in there produces trash at an astronomical level; this one single-family home has THREE trash bins that are regularly filled. I don’t know what the fuck all these people are up to. The current residents have escalated their trash game to a whole...

This furry little asshole

This furry little asshole

Spring has taken to hanging out inside my shirts. It’s suuuuuuper cute, and at least I know where he is. Except tonight, I’m only wearing a lace bralette under my hoodie. And I have my nipples pierced. So this fucker suddenly decided to grab one of the shiny metal things under the sheer fabric. With his teeth. Assface bit my goddamn nipple. No harm done, but fucking ow! Upside: I made my...

I’m done with today, y’all

Woke up in not the best headspace. Went to put on my #1 favorite oversized snuggly sweater for comfort, and discovered it shrank in the wash. Cried to LordSparrow about the sweater for a while, then about the fact that I’m such a damn people pleaser that I end up burnt out and feeling completely unappreciated (the reason for waking up in a funk to begin with). Then my mom group-texted us...

Gross, dude

Gross, dude

I just drove past a guy sitting in his giant truck at a four-way stop in my neighborhood, blowing big sloppy kisses at some random woman crossing the street. She’d glanced his way to make sure she was clear to go, and he apparently found her quite appealing. Barf. Why, my dudes? What do you think this is going to get you?

Awkward

Awkward

Last night I received a long and detailed text message addressed to Christine from a man requesting my service as a marital counselor. Then this morning a voicemail from the same man with further information. My name is not Christine, and I am not a counselor. This poor guy just spilled his guts about his marriage problems to a wrong number. Twice.

It finally happened!

It finally happened!

You guys, I think I might be dreaming! I just adopted a four month old ferret named Spring. He was surrendered by his previous family because he doesn’t get along with other ferrets. I have been waiting for this day for 18 years, since my mom made me re-home my baby boy Frankie. I love ferrets so damn much! I even adore their smell.

Look at that face!!!!!!! He is so happy! We got him a sweet...
