I’ve ummed and ahhed for years about orthodontics - mostly because i hate paying large sums of money that don’t offer experiences (plane tickets? well made clothes? YES. plasma tv? no) - also, I am dirty my parents didn’t get my teeth done even though it was heavily recommended (but my sister got hers done because she is the pretty one talented one. I’m just the fat ugly mistake who makes people feel bad. shut up cinderella and wash the dishes. She had a fucking gap in her teeth. thats it. I LOOK LIKE A FUCKING GOOFY CARICATURE!). I’ve decided I’m fixing it. fuck it. deal with the cost. I’m hate the way my mouth looks. I’m going to change it.
Kid - mum, do you want some crackers?
Me - noo. i’m just going to die.
Kid - Mum! don’t even joke about that. Do you even know what would HAPPEN to me if you DIED?
Me - Yep, you would go live with uncle and aunty.
Kid - Yes. and I would have to change schools and go to COUSIN’S school. DO YOU KNOW HOW EMBARRASSING THAT WOULD BE?
I just saw this frozen post and I was reminded of this thing my daughter does which is she watches frozen, and she waits for the perfect moment, hits pause and takes what she calls “Elsa Selfies” with her phone. She has a folder full of Elsa Selfies. That Elsa…
My favourite day of the week is monday - because the week is still full of promise to get everything done.
My least favourite is friday because I am reminded of all the things I haven’t done yet and fuck knows I wont do it on the weekend.
I actually don’t care if people hate me blogging conversations between me and the kid.
Mostly, because i know if we had a reality show people would watch it.
She just tried to use the old “up down up down” etc cheat in pokemon and yelled at me because it wouldn’t work.
We are on fire today… and she is home sick.
Me - why are those people wearing those clothes
Kid - Because they want too.
Me - God. Why did I raise you to be so progressive. stop it you are annoying me
Kid - Why?
Me - WHY CAN’T YOU BE A NARROW MINDED CHILD
Kid - BECAUSE MUM!! I HAVE DREAMS!!!
Kid - why can’t female superhero’s be known as *something!* man?
Me - Because they don’t have penises
Kid - They could have penises. You don’t know.
Me - Your counterpoint is flawless
Kid - SO why can’t they be known as man?
Me - Captain is gender neutral. Captain Marvel??
Kid - OMG MUM. CAPTAIN MARVEL IS A MAN. GOD.
Me - Captain Marvel is also a woman!!!
KID - I WATCH THE TV SHOW. NO HE ISN’T
Me - I can’t even believe I am having this conversation. I am so disappointed in you.
Kid - MAN!
Me - *googles* *shit, why can’t i remember captain marvel’s name. kick in coffee kick in. why is the wikipedia page only about the male captain marvel? this shit is fucked up. someone needs to fix this* AHA!
*turns around laptop*
CAROL DANVERS! *kid ignores me* LOOK! SUCK IT! WOMAN.
Kid - nope. still don’t recognise her.
Me - you disappoint me. you disappoint your family.
Kid - God mum. calm down.
I was just browsing storenvy, bigcartel, and etsy and I found that there is a crazy amount of vintage books on them like babysitters club etc etc. we happen to have a crazy amount that we no longer want/ need SO… I’ma set up a vintage store. I have a crazy crazy amount of things I have collected over the years. Could be fun. Saves time on making things. 11 weeks to get to seattle, write my pres and e’rything else.
BABE. What days are you thinking of being here!? Aahhhh I already have plane tickets to this wedding!
6th or 7th til about the 14th Oct! I’ma book my tickets next friday so I can tell you my exact days. Getting in early so I won’t be jetlagged, and also have some time to hit up thrift stores for material for the pres.
Screw this I am going to disneyland
is a thing I want to say… but really, I am going to work and I haven’t slept well.
The world has finally remembered shit is going down in Ukraine.
I am going to book all my tickets next week, so that is when I have to have my costings done. I really want to go to Portland. There is no real reason other than the Corn Maze and stuff. complicated-creation - if you have a free day, can we take the red bus down to portland? do the haunted houses and things? I’m Australian. You need to humour me. THIS STUFF IS FUCKING AMAZING TO ME.
I’m still not sure if the kid is coming. I am talking to my cousin today (she is the only family member I have that COULD help). Half of me doesn’t want her to miss out… and another half of me wants to be able to go out with friends in seattle. sue me.
Can we all just go to vegas after geekgirlcon?
I want to get black out drunk in a glittery land.
