Filling out the New York Times’ crossword puzzle turned into a Limited-Space-Dirty-Words Scrabble game for us. This wraps up our day’s events of battling a hobo, nabbing vintage coats, crafting crayon hearts, illegally notarizing official documents, and watching cartoons.

I’d make a comic out of our lives, but no one would believe me.

A little afternoon PS painting I did of my lovely, talented wife, based on a recent photo I took. Now to go cuddle that handsome brute… 

There’s something intensely spooky about glancing over to the screen and seeing yourself staring back. I’m intensely flattered, my wife makes me look 100x prettier.

K gets innovative with Chapter 8's intro page. I'm so excited for this chapter, and Wednesday will be its first official page!

Expect to see some slightly animated ChaosLife’s in the near future, perhaps?

A quick reblog for the daytime (early evening?) crowd!

My two favorite creatures in the world in one photoset. To say they’re charismatic and beautiful is an understatement. <3

(Though that’s some serious derp-face at the beginning, Konstantin. I dunno.)

Am I the only one that knows the stereotypical heart shape was meant to be two hearts fused together? 

OH MY GOD THAT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
cuz the weird fake heart shape is about love, it’s about TWO HEARTS COMING TOGETHER
guys.

whoa. talk about mindfucked.

Greatest source of information I’ve come across on Tumblr. EVER. That’s fuckin’ ill..

Not to pull a Hermione-esque &#8220;ACTUALLY,&#8221; BUT&#8230;

ACTUALLY, the origin of the heart as a symbol (i.e., ♥) is still widely debated, but absolutely none of those theories suggest two literal hearts pressed together. Not only was the symbol for a real heart (and/or love) represented by pinecones or pinecone shapes (close enough, I guess?), but the symbol ♥ itself was largely used to represent plants, like fig leaves or ivy.
It was only in the 1960s that scholars tried to figure out the link between the scalloped heart symbol and love, the most popular theory of which is that it resembles the seed of the silphium plant, which was used as a contraceptive all the way back through ancient times. Like it was depicted in this Grecian coin:

The other more popular theory is that it represents elements of the buttocks (bent over), the outspread vulva, or the pubic mound. In essence, no matter how you cut it, the heart as a symbol is almost always tied to sex, not to literal hearts or romantic love, but only as an abstract to those two things.
This Tumblr myth has been &#8212;

&#8212; GRANGERED.

I do all of my own stunts and my body makes its own art afterward.
