    I just discovered today that there's a Ron Burgundy Podcast. If you are an Anchorman fan, I highly recommend. It's hilarious.

    (disclaimer: the SO doesn't agree with me)
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    Hot Pickle!

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell

    I think for authenticity it needs to be used? Either way the reviews are ridiculous.

Dunno what's going on with that dude but I hope hes okay. Shout out to the 1 star review which amounted to 'its dirt' like dang it sure is. I wonder if these are all ethnically sourced, like, how do you even get a consistent supply of coffin nails? Especially for a buck a pop? Youd think they'd be used for something.

    Frequently bought with: suggestively shaped black "hoodoo" candles with just straight up hex instructions in the product description. The reviews on these are just great, really pleased with the person who expected the $6 booby woman candle would be handcrafted by a "magickal occult practitioner" and got "made in China" instead. This journey felt like dropping into a heavy handed urban fantasy novel. Worked great for my hex, arrived early, would order again. Like, how often do you need to buy grave dirt? Realistically I'd expect it to be reusable.

    I see those type things and I honestly want to ask if they know the difference between a graveyard and a cemetery. Realistically grave dirt from a cemetery wouldn't be the same as grave dirt from an actual graveyard. That doesn't even take into consideration how actual graveyards were broken down into which area's were proper and respected versus which areas where for the unclean and so called unfit / unsaved.

    If you ever want a bit of gravedirt, let me know, I can probably get my hands on some for the cost of shipping.

    There are some cultures that only bury their dead long enough for them to decompose, then use the bones. And one culture, somewhere, brings their preserved dead out of their coffins once a year, feeds them, changes their clothes, washes them, etc. So, you could probably source a small supply from things like that. More than likely someone in China is making a bunch of nails, soaking them, tossing them in dirt, etc to make them look used, and shipping them here with the label of coffin nails... if the nails could realistically be used for coffins, then there isn't really anything wrong with that.

    But caskets are rarely actually closed with nails in the modern world anymore. Typically, there's a sealing gasket that you close with a special screwdriver thing (I should know the name but it isn't coming to mind). The exceptions I can think of are for Jewish and Islamic burials, and they don't allow any metal, so they wouldn't use nails anyway...
    We are what we are. Nothing more, nothing less. There is good and evil among every kind of people. It's the evil among us who rule now. -Anne Bishop, Daughter of the Blood

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.
    -Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Curse

    Service to your fellows is the root of peace.

    Something under my desk makes a weird chirping noise. Like there's a cricket stuck inside the wood, lol. I think I know what it is and a little WD40 ought to fix it, but it'll have to wait until tomorrow. Too tired right now.

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    I Dungeon Mastered a completely improvised one-shot for some friends because they SUDDENLY wanted to try pen&paper rpg. I made the story completely as I went. I just told them to make their characters and I'll figure out their passives and strengths as they went.

    One created a Bard. The second one a Rogue that could use lightning magic... ok. Then the third created a Paladin, good good...

    And the fourth decided he was Commander Shepard from the Mass Effect series. And for some reason I allowed it. His backstory is that he was pursuing some dude with a prothean artifact and his biotic powers interacted with the artifact that opened a wormhole that transported him to the med-fantasy world of the other three. Great Start.

    The Paladin rolls 1 intelligence. I decide he can only say 1 word per hour.

    A lava ogre (literally an ogre made of lava, about 3m tall) trips and falls on top of Commander Shepard, then explodes in molten lava, immediately killing him. Fortunately the Paladin rolled a crit for a divine prayer that made the gods take pity of their team and save Shepard with 1hp left.

    They continually rolled 1's and 2's during the whole story. Fortunately for them, I rolled low scores often as well. I was dumbfounded by the incompetence of every f***ing character in this campaign.

    Was fun, would do again. I'm currently writing down the campaign to see if I can flesh it out in the future, it's a nice 5 hour long one shot, that can definitely be shorter or longer depending on the paths the adventurers take.

    This sounds like so much fun!
