Seriously all the Latin I know is either liturgical stuff from The Hunchback of Notre Dame and what little I remember from A Canticle for Leibowitz, or it’s all about drinking and sex because it’s from Carmina Burana

There is no in between

Oh wait my mom also one year got me a book of Latin insults but all I remember is how to call someone a whore and queen of the whores so I guess that goes under the sex and drinking section

No in between

Sorry I think about representations and presentations of myself a lot not only from social media service to social media service but like video game to video game if customization of character is available and even different places I go like how I present myself at illustration classes vs going to the doctor’s vs whatever else

I’m actually very self-absorbed I’m the worst

I’m looking at this post parasiteprogram reblogged (gif background) and I’m commiserating about the design via asks and I seriously just want to design a better purse

Like I’m pretty sure I fucking could too the thing’s a mess and I’m pretty sure that’s meant to be both an art piece and used as a purse and like it fails on both accounts fucking seriously that thing would get snagged on like everything if you tried to use it as a purse I don’t care how careful you are or how little clothing you’re wearing argh

I don’t even fucking use purses and frankly a lot of bugs give me the creepy-crawlies and shit but I know I could design a bag/purse that screams “entomology bag” like ten times better than that one

"Do they think that walls could hide you?/Even now I’m at your window/I am in the dark beside you/Buried sweetly in your yellow hair!"

I get that when people say you shouldn’t fight fire with fire because you just get more fire that like most of the time that makes sense and all and they’re sort of using it as a metaphor to not fan the flames of hate or whatever (like the whole eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind thing) but like there are cases when you can and maybe even should do that

Like one way to try and stop brushfires and I think even some forest fires is you basically burn off an area so that when the out of control fire hits it there’s nothing left to burn so hopefully it’ll stop growing (because depending on the size of the fire vs the size of your burnt area the fire can sort of “leap” over it anyway not the point)

I mean I know this is being pedantic and stuff that’s caused by me listening to things that just happen to have the right phrases in them and that I should go to bed because it’s like 3:13 AM here but still

There are cases where you do legit fight fire with fire it’s just more specialized

But I seriously remember learning that like if you’re out like hiking in the brush and a wildfire appears or something but you have a lighter on you basically you should try to burn your own plot of land so that hopefully you won’t die a horrible painful fire death in the wilderness because of some brushfire or whatever or maybe I heard about some real-life group of like firefighters who did that and thus survived like this sudden flare up over a ridge or something listen it’s legit okay

Anyway that’s all for story time with SEM the Pedantic Shit Who Can’t Let Some Metaphors Go Sometimes Because Dangit Fighting Fire With Fire Is Actually A Thing And Not Always Completely Dumb Sorry I Live In A Fucking State Where Fires Are A Thing Thus I Would Know That

I should go to bed now

Speaking strictly about Marvel movie universe Loki I feel that the Loki seen in Thor and the Loki seen in the Avengers don’t really line up and that I vastly prefer the character of Loki as seen in Thor to the character of Loki as seen in the Avengers which is weird because they’re meant to be the same character

What i’m trying to say is if Thor 2’s Loki is more like Thor!Loki than Avengers!Loki I will be very happy and I will also feel the need to apologize in advance

SCANNING ELECTRON MACROPUNCH because SEM are important initials to me

I wanted it to be Scanning Electron Macroscope but apparently that was too many characters or something? I dunno. Macropunch fits better anyway. Neither makes much sense.

I might make more Jaegers later because it is ridiculously fun

If ever I wore make-up I’d probably base it off Cherry’s

I feel like I’d have to go over the top otherwise I wouldn’t see the point

But I don’t wear make-up so the point is very moot

I think part of the reason I can’t decide whether or not to preoder BioShock Infinite is that I don’t know whether it’s more like BioShock or more like BioShock 2 and I can tell you which one I’m willing to shell out 60 bucks for but I can’t tell which one it’ll be

Which means I’m not preordering it but… but I’m telling myself I’m still considering and I don’t know why

I really ought to try and sleep or something

[NB: I don’t mean “like BioShock” as in “is a clone of BioShock” just more in a “has a clearly defined yet different theme and enough of the gameplay is new but not annoying” which is very specific I know I’m sorry I’m bad at this]
