Had a (lit) candle on my desk. Cat tried to investigate it because she's a dumbass. Panicked, blew the candle out, accidentally sprayed wax over the keyboard.
The cat is fine but dried wax is Bad Texture and I haven't found a quick and easy way to get it off such an uneven surface (I have raised keys).
oh no sudden BAD tooth problem
The book I'm working on reviewing right now makes a point of describing literally every Mexican character's teeth as stained or rotting with the exception of the one customer service guy. Seriously, did the writer extrapolate that idea from Mexican water not being fluoridated or something? Because it's very angering.
What The Fuck (not mad at you, mad at author)
Sounds like typical racist depictions of us, honestly. 'Dirty Mexicans' is a very common stereotype.
I do bring that up in the in-progress review. Every male character who isn't a love interest is described as ugly in some way, but the non-white ones get it much worse, and there's a lot of classism involved too. None of the other reviewers seem to have noticed that.
my headphones broke and i just threw out the old ones they replaced and my computer doesn't have speakers so if i don't have any headphones i can't watch anything with sound or listen to music, which is what i do to deal with anxiety and adhd symptoms
I set up part one of this series and part two of this series to happen in the same timeframe from two different POVs, PLUS part two is supposed to cover some missing pieces from part one, which means I have to constantly refer between the two of them and triple check e v e r y t h i n g I say
Same book I mentioned above spent some time one of the villainous characters as being super-ugly, as if we couldn't get that he was evil already from his actions, he was Mexican, and they made a point of using the words "greasy" and "sweaty" in contexts which make them sound bad. Apart from the enraging stereotypes of dirty Mexicans, no fucking shit he's sweaty, HE'S AT THE FUCKING EQUATOR AT THE TIME. Why is this supposed to make him look bad?
i'd been starting to hope that the old "biblical literalism is trivial to disprove, therefore all religion is stupid" schtick had gone out of fashion, but i just stepped in a pile of it in an otherwise funny essay. please stop. it's so tired. so racist. so america-centric. i'm embarrassed for you, dude. just let it go.
If I never see Good Omens TV discourse ever again, it'll be too soon.
D'you ever do a full load of laundry, and then you pull it out, and you're just...so allergic to all of it. And then it's like, great, now I've gotta deep-clean the washer and try all over again. =_____=
