    I just murdered the shit out of my jeans by shoving my entire foot through one of the ~artful~ rips adorning the legs. Good job! "Local human cannot dress self after nearly 4 decades on planet: expert analysis on what went wrong".

    Ah, bollocks to em, I needed to resize anyway XP

    Oh I would absolutely do something like that if I had the hubris to wear pre-ripped jeans, especially since I always put on trousers standing up. Coordination WHOMST?? (am I using that meme right)

    Oh, FFXIV, you really shouldn't have given me the option to do that with the character creator, but thank you. Thank you so much. THIS BROKEN-NOSED WALL OF MUSCLES IS MY SON NOW.

    Lamp table, hella cheap edition. Replacing the little rubberwood folding table which has like 4 jobs already, so I didn't think adding 'semi permanent bedroom furniture' to it's list of uses was fair.

    Oh fuck, I thought I had an expensive hobby with my thirst for premium and novel art and craft supplies. Then I looked into getting Li some fly tying kit and went ''aha nope' and closed the page.

    How is it more expensive than buying him a drum kit (which he's not getting either, we don't have room or soundproofing.)

    Why does the accompanying photo for every "beauty guru" puff piece look uncannily like Daffy Duck caught in a high-speed wind tunnel

    I didn't realise that anatidaephilia was so common!

    Went out to attempt gift shopping and came back with a fluffy blanket for the spare room and a couple of shiny cushions.

    Did also manage to rake through shelves to pick up reduced Hela and Scarlet Witch Pop Vinyls for the collection - another bit for Li's present - and some other things.

    My sister's present looks ultra luxe for something that cost me less than £14 all in (it's a rose gold and turquoise bangle with a coin charm to attach)
    >:3c I am the prince of bargains

    Also I felt bad about not adulting properly, so I watched this and it never fails to make me feel better.



    He never fails to sign books and chat after a show, either, it's very charming.

    I'm taking a moment to appreciate how good this looks. This pleases me. I hope it also pleases the recipient.

    In other news I'm feeling guilty because Li's papa has given us £50 each for a gift and I can count on the fingers of one hand how many words I've said to the man in the entire time I've been with Li. Part of this is because Li's late granny was a very much non-functional alcoholic and abusive and Li insisted that he didn't want to subject me to her, and I know his papa is not the easiest person - the paternal pattern of verbal, emotional and physical abuse is generational.

    BUT. That said. He has never been abusive to me, ever, and he's obviously lonely and kind of struggling now that he doesn't have a wife to keep everything together for and I feel bad anyway and now I feel worse in the face of generosity. I just don't know how to make it better because Li and his family have so very little in common that it's kind of weird socialising with them.

    I suppose no worse than mine, when I think of it. I'm just more used to my family and their hot takes.

    Successfully offloaded presents onto parents.

    Went shopping and had a bottle of eco-friendly rose-scented cleaner leak all over the rest of my shopping >:(
    It's not a bad smell per se, but goddamn it's annoying that it happened. Over a food shop too.

    Yeah, done pretending to be a functional human being for the day. going to go drink strawberry daiquiri in bed in the hopes that I might pass out and get more than 3 hours solid sleep.

    I m going to make 2019 my year. I am going to attack it with single-minded resolve. I will try to be kinder and to help more when I can.

    I'll try to be a better friend, or at least one who actually socialises a little.

    That's the plan, anyway.
