maids & matrons

Brave women with stereotypically feminine virtues, kind and patient and loving, and the older, gruff and world-weary anti-heroes who fall for them.

A very distinctive goldfinch. #anotherboringbirdtweet

This is the second time I’ve seen this visitor. The first time I didn’t get a good look at him and I thought I’d imagined his mutation. Clearly his top and bottom beak are misaligned and can’t wear down with use, like can happen with a rabbit’s teeth, and he’s obviously snapped off the top beak.

His condition is fine though and he obviously feeds with little problem; in fact his extra reach gave him an advantage first thing this morning before I’d filled the feeders as you can see from the last photo.

Absolutely fascinating and lovely to see that the bird is getting along just fine! :) 

you go little bird! :)

Imagine stabbing someone with this knife. 

It would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.

if you want information it is

and above, in order, we see a gryffindor, a ravenclaw, and a slytherin

why would you stab a PERSON when you can have TOAST?

There’s the hufflepuff

There is a toddler in our office again… Oh dear, I want children so bad. Several of them (but one at a time). They are so wonderfully inquisitive and they interact with you and with the world and the way they do it is just so… full of life, energetic, optimistic.

I think I would really enjoy myself as a stay-at-home mom, doing crafts and writing and reading and caring for my family. I don’t think it’s really an option where I live, though - not in the current economy, that is.

Also, I would need to find a suitable male to provide the sperm and share the responsibilities. Oh well.

You Cannot Rest Here

meeplol:

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

I do.
