In addition to the extremely long and somewhat ranty blog post below, I’ve also done something useful and updated the website. I’ve added 200 new avatars/icons to the Nature section. They’re really quite stunning. Check them out!

I’ve also posted some new quiz results. ;3 They’re below in case you don’t want to dig through the PQR page.

You Are the Butterfly

You are highly skilled and competent. You are a bit of a natural. 

And while you were born with many talents, you’ve also worked hard for what you know. Practice makes perfect!

You make difficult things look effortless. You always carry yourself with grace.

You try to live a life of balance that you can sustain over the years. You don’t run your self ragged.



A Social Experiment Day

Anyone outside of the online community that knows me even remotely well knows that I am less than social. Some (everyone) might even venture so far as to say that I am antisocial. With my aspie tendencies, avoidance, my social anxiety and my general disdain for humanity make me hesitate to really spend any time with people. I like being alone, or with the cats.

The rare people that have managed to make it into my life are there to stay, don’t get me wrong. I don’t accept people easily and usually it happens on a gut instinct. I get a good feeling about someone, I am instantly completely devoted to them. People make me uncomfortable. I feel that instant friendliness is a mask for some sort of potential personal gain. I’m never friendly on first site. Hell, I can be downright bitchy.

Today started out like any other day. Get up. Fall back asleep. Be nauseous. Fall asleep. Work. Fall asleep. Get ready for school and go.

This is where the routine changed.



It is a curious quirk of the human body that the things we ingest often come in one way and out another. For instance, part of the reason that we are carnivorous creatures is that our bodies cannot break down the plant material cellulose. And while we may consume copious amounts of liquor at parties and the occasional boring church lecture (jk!) it is grain alcohol. Rubbing alcohol, on the other hand, cannot be drunk because the liver converts it into methanol and acetone (like – the better do your nails with.)

USELESS INFORMATION? Yes! But prevalent seeing as I just managed to accidentally swallow a capful of the stuff. Now i’ve already been asked how one can accidentally swallow rubbing alcohol and trust me it is possible. The tale goes something like this:

I was cleaning my laptop’s keyboard (Merlin has been using it as a butt-heater). Part of this process involved dipping q-tips in alcohol to wipe down some of the tighter spaces. In order to dip the q-tips I decided to use my water bottle’s cap as a holding facility. When the job was done I simply replaced the cap on my water bottle and completely forgot about it. One or two hours later I decided to partake in the cool refreshing liquid only to spit it out as soon as it hit my mouth because it tasted of rubbing alcohol. Realizing my mistake I laid down and waited to die…

When that didn’t happen I called my doctor and the Poison Control Center, both of whom informed me that I’d swallowed less than an Ounce and wouldn’t require any medical care. Bull, I say. My throat feels oddly numb and cold and I have heartburn something awful. Or maybe that’s just the sting of almost throwing-up from having to talk to Anima and Ona again (DESUDESUDESUDESU). Who knows?

Don’t mock me! It could happen to you. ; w ;
