“Canola,” y/y? (I’d actually kind of like to name one of my future rats that. And since you’re supposed to keep them in twos, I think I’d have to call her friend Olive…)

(630): At this point I will cuddle anything to prevent from dying alone (740): Do you ever just look at me and get embarrassed? (330): The extent of my physical activity is running from the cops. (443): he said ‘i want to be the peanut butter to your jelly, just without the crust’ and then tried to take me shirt off (407): you definitely have a few illegitimate kids...

I love “The Bonnie Ship the Diamond” just as much as I did this time last year…and I may be purchasing my ninth recording of it tonight. and now back to your regularly scheduled Discworld villains
Facts About Kentucky Bluegrass Country (from...
…recorded here because they’re forming the basis of my headcanon for Discworld’s Octarine Grass Country (because DiscWiki says that’s what it’s referencing, and I need headcanons for all the largely unseen regions, yes): high calcium content in the soil leads to horses grazed there turning out stronger/more durable—leads to lots of horse ranches being...
meltingpenguins: tenbabyshoes: meltingpenguins: adorababble: meltingpenguins: The mapcrunch thing reminded me: We had people doing wonderful google-map maps for Lord of the Rings We have people working on those maps for Harry Potter. Where are the people doing Ankh-Morpork? Because the river alone would need about 80 textures for the right chewy, semi-solid texture. There are...

A slightly belated Valentine's post
My approach to shipping is rather like the way neurons are activated…lots of things can set off a small, localized response, but it takes a really strong simulus or a lot of concerted stimuli to push the signal all the way through to the point where it can do something productive. Given the few things that have managed to “fire an action potential” in such a manner, it seems...
Ships that make little sense.
dreamingincumulus: When you start to look at the pairing. You’re like, “What!? No! Why would I ship this!?” Then you start to think that they’re a good pair. Then you get thoughts of shipping the pair. Then, Later you’re like, RELEVANT TO MY LIFE RIGHT NOW, YES
