Oh sweet Cthulhu don’t let this be me!
I fell asleep super early tonight (and without the help of meds) and had a crazy dream that I was the second coming of Christ. Everyone found out because I guess I wrote a song or poem or who fucking knows what that told everyone just who I was.
And this church full of crazies wanted to get hold of me and crucify me. I obviously wanted none of this, so I escaped. Multiple times. In weirder and weirder ways. I stabbed someone to death with my brand new Gingher sewing shears (Omg I would never! Those blades are sacred!) and at one point a church defector who could fucking fly helped me get away.
Then an older guy gave me the mini tool kit and his souped up, all terrain, amphibious lawn mower and I jumped on, hauling ass across the county. Did I mention this thing could also fly?
I had just stolen a set of earrings (a girl has to look her best when running for her life!) from a fish farm when I peed myself in my dream because there’s no time for potty breaks.
Believe you me I woke up fast afraid I had actually peed the bed. Whew! Nope! But I got up and peed and took my meds anyway.
So I loved my first EarFleek delivery so much I signed up for a second subscription with them. I was already enjoying Minimalist but Groovy, and then I signed up for Young at Heart too. Check out what I got this time! So cute!
I had therapy yesterday, which was tough, but it brought some facts to light I had never really considered before. I love therapy because even if it brings up painful things sometimes, it helps me look at myself and my actions objectively and since I’m really into facts over feelings, it honestly makes me feel better about myself, and I love that. ❤️💛💚💙💜
Today I woke up and I was freezing. It’s not Halloween yet. It shouldn’t be this cold, I thought. And the temp wasn’t that cold – mid-50’s, but there is a cold, hard blowing wind. And my window is open. And the fan was on. I turned the fan off but I’m not quite ready to close the window yet. I’ll live with being chilly a little longer.
I cleaned up after the puppies, let them out to play, and made myself something to eat. I had a nice snuggle with Yuba, who was happy to hog all my blankets and not share them. Then I got a black felt tip pen, a new 18g needle, and went into my bathroom.
Ten minutes later, I had a 3rd hole in each earlobe, though I had to do the left side twice because the first one was too low. There was a lot of blood – it was running down my face and neck – but it stopped pretty quickly. Still, its really hard to hold onto a fiddly earring back and try to push it into place when your fingers and earlobe are slippery with a ridiculous amount of blood from such a tiny pair of holes.
I have a few new pieces of body jewelry coming in the next few days, and one of them is a super cute nose screw, so that’s what I be piercing next. I’m going to order a pair of bucket forceps and try to do my traguses myself too.
First, let me say I had reservations about this subscription before deciding to sign up. For less than $4 a month, they send you a pair of nickel-free earrings based on a style profile of your choosing. Obviously I’m skeptical because super cheap and cute earrings that my super sensitive speshul snoflake ears can actually wear? It honestly seems too good to be true but I finally decided to give it a try. I’d know within a few hours of wearing them if they were indeed nickel-free and the buy-in is so low, why not?
Anyway, today this came in the mail.
A pretty unassuming envelope with no secret who its from. Okay, let’s open it up.
There’s a card announcing that I just received stylish, new earrings, a temporary tattoo (which I applied to my thigh a few minutes later), and the little ziplock baggie with the actual earrings.
The earrings are pretty cute, albeit super simple. I posted the photos to Instagram and said they looked like little Superman shields, but my friend Liz pointed out they’re actually diamonds. Yes, I got rose-gold colored, diamond earrings for under $4. Score? Score!
I’m pretty happy with this pair, so I’ll continue the subscription for a while.
