Conversation I Legitimately Just Had With My Roommate:

"God, I love annoying the cat. Just lying in bed, poking him, tugging at him, squeaking at him, annoying the shit out of him. And he just keeps coming back for more. Because that’s how much he loves me. …God, the next guy I date really needs to be a push-over."

And this is why I’m a horrible, horrible person who will die alone with not one, but 16 cats. Who eat my face off in retribution for years of persistent, obnoxious abuse once I’ve fallen to the floor and stopped breathing.

XOXO

I just realized that if you get cremated after death, there will be no body to find, so, thousands of years from now— if the Earth even gets there before self-imploding from our greed— archaeologists and descendants wouldn’t be able to dig us up and examine our bones for clues of who we were or what we did and what life for us was like, like we do with the Egyptians and the Neanderthals and our ancestors. This just COMPLETELY made me pause and reconsider my plans for post-breathing life.

…I’m morbid, and you’ve got to appreciate that in me.

XOXO

My child would most definitely learn the alphabet through the Gashleycrumb Tinies book.
That, and Anamalia, which is also a bit creepy at times in it’s own right.
Might I mention I was a fiercely sought-after nanny? That’s right, even with Anamalia in my repitoire. Thank god for progressive parents.

Any child of mine would love this. Because Addams Family Values aptly describes my attitude toward family life.

r-is-for-raven:

“They all agreed that it was a huge creature, luminous, ghastly, and spectral. I have cross-examined these men, one of them a hard-headed countryman, one a farrier, and one a moorland farmer, who all tell the same story of this dreadful apparition, exactly corresponding to the hell-hound of the legend. I assure you that there is a reign of terror in the district, and that it is a hardy man who will cross the moor at night”

- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles.

In cleaning the middle bedroom in preparation of having visitors at the end of the month, I’ve come across all the fiction writing I did in high school, and, all together, it equals a stack of paper about 6 inches high.

I must have written over a thousand pages of stories that have never seen the light of day. …And to think, now I have nothing to do with fiction.

However, the best find, by far, was a short story that I started for some sort of lit contest, but never finished. In fact, I remember coming up with the plot, but had forgotten I’d actually written a good 10 pages of it already. Stealing a little bit from Conan Doyle, it’s about a 21st century London debutante who winds up inheriting the family manor from her great-aunt, and ends up out on the moor, being stalked by spectral creatures and guarded over by a very large and wild mysterious manservant who seemingly comes with the house. It’s part gothic thriller, part unsentimental romance. I’m excited to go back to work on it and maybe submit it to something new, so, starting tonight, it’s Holmes all-around. Netflix, get ready. Old, tattered copy of complete Sherlock Holmes that I stole from my high school library— prepare yourself. We’re going deep.

Not-So-Still Life With Cats.

I was just chased down across the first floor of the house by my cat with a mouse in his mouth that he obviously wanted to present to me as a “present,” then had to beat the poor thing to death (REPEATEDLY) with a flyswatter while blinded by tears and alternately sobbing and laughing at the absurdity of the situation because Nicco had only (horribly) maimed it.

The perfect end to the tragi-comedy? It took two tries to flush the poor little corpse down the toilet.

I am horribly distraught. All I can think of is Bianca and Bernard in The Rescuers.

XOXO

Gloomy mornings like these are my favorite. They take me right back to being in London with Nora, and are, I swear, the reason why I decided to be a self-employed freelancer— so that if I wake up to a morning like this, I can grab a thick book, a heavy blanket, and a cup of hot and sweet peppermint tea, and go read on the covered porch for HOURS.
