Lately when I’ve been feeling run-down and slink off to bed, our Russian Blue cat, Konstantin, will come padding in on his little furry feet, come right up to my side, and I’ll put him under the blankets and hug him like a teddy bear to my chest while he falls asleep. He’s done this at least 5 times I can count lately. I can only assume either he’s getting cuddlier in his old age (that he lets me wrap my arms completely around him, lays his head on the same pillow mine is on, and snores loudly) or that he’s gearing up to do something horrible to me. Because he’s a jerk.
First ever picture where I was actually wearing my glasses. I don’t wear them often, but when you drop your contacts in the toilet you decide to just let them go.
I’m particularly happy to have snapped this photo, both because of the resulting image of my beautiful wife, and for the fact I got to keep it. She’s like a ninja with that ‘delete’ button, it’s all gone in a flash!
hi, so, i was wondering [and please, tell me if i say anything offensive or dumb] about your schizophrenia. you seem like a gal who has things under control. anyways, i was hoping you could tell me a bit about what day to day life is like with your condition. y’see, i am in the process of trying…
One of the rare times my wife makes an “Ask” answer rebloggable, because not only did I insist, but she got outside requests for it, too. That’s because in one fell swoop, not only did she summarize her personal, day-to-day experiences with paranoid schizophrenia very well, but she also highlighted some of the most common issues the media has in portraying mental illnesses. It’s worth a read, whether you’re simply interested in mental illnesses or you’re a part of the creative culture!
Everyone is complaining about the consumerist phenomenon that is Black Friday, which I understand. I don’t like it any more than the next person, but I do have a proactive alternative to just expressing our ire in tweets and Tumblr posts: Create Friday.
If you don’t like the idea of Black…
Though I’m typically the last person in the world to advocate shedding a little cynicism, this is actually a great idea. I think if more people just calmed the hell down and tried their hand at making something now and then, we’d all be better off. And hey, why not today?
It’s a running tradition since his kittenhood that every time Konstantin wakes up from a nap, he demands kisses and cuddles. I call him “Little Prince.”
I can confirm this. He’ll stumble around the house groggily until he finds someone to fulfill this demand. I was just wondering where my wife got off to, but after this evidence popped up on my dash, all I can think is, “damn, I’m lucky.” Cuddly cat and hot wife. Aww yiss.
