Ice that cake, baby

(What??!! A non Saturday Morning Post on Saturday??? What happened?? So, so many things. Just get over it.) Ah. It’s good to be back. *I lean back sipping my London fog and wondering who I am because whenever I go anywhere I always order a chai tea latte but what the heck* I once more … Continue reading Ice that cake, baby

animal companions for your heroes and villains

The only pets I've ever had were hamsters when I was a kid. Though I love them dearly, I do wonder if owning hamsters was more traumatizing than anything else.

Also the first hamster … Continue reading animal companions for your heroes and villains

Vibes and Aesthetics Only: Winter Edition

So the northeast got a big dumping of snow a few days ago, which meant I received a big dumping of snow.

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 61

1. September 22nd. It's officially fall. And it couldn't be a better first, fall morning at 8am. It's dark and deeply overcast. It's cool, and already there are brown leaves scattered across the lawn. The rain is steady, soft drifts of it coming down. It patters with a metallic thunk on the cars, drips and … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 61

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 60

Happiness can feel frail, always on the verge of flying away, forgetting … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 60
