Well as soon as the alcohol hit me I heard a loud-ish noise from the living room and now I can’t get up to investigate.

It’s probably a murderer and I can’t defend my home because I decided to get tipsy.

Dang it.

mirrorsandthings replied to your post: I got Ice Hole cinnamon schnapps to go…

Next time use vodka

I’m usually a vodka girl, but I’m trying to branch out. They didn’t have my favorite stuff in stock, either, so it seemed like a good time to try schnapps.

Plus I was like “eehhh it’s a Minnesota brand. I should support my state and buy our liquor!”.

I am thoroughly disappointed, because even a couple sips of wine get me melty. I have very low alcohol tolerance and this is just sad. Twenty percent ABV should be getting me somewhere pretty quick, since 5% malt beverages put me down pretty fast.

Maybe being sick has something to do with it though. hahaha.

Drank a capful straight because I’m a wuss. Can’t tell if the burn is from alcohol or if it’s from the cinnamon.

Not brave enough to drink a straight shot… but I DID make sure to put an entire shot into my third cup of hot cider.

But now my hot cider isn’t very apple-y. Kind of just… cinnamon, with a weird menthol after-feel (I have never bought this brand before. Not sure if that’s supposed to be there??!?!!).

BUT now there might be enough alcohol in there to put me to sleep. If it actually is alcohol and not just a bottle of cinnamon-flavored lies.

I got Ice Hole cinnamon schnapps to go in my apple cider but I’ve had two cups and I’m not feeling at all jiggly like the tiniest bit of anything else does.

My cider isn’t nearly hot enough to make the alcohol evaporate any meaningful degree.

Did I get jipped? Is this just cinnamon-y red sugar liquid?

Should I see what it tastes like straight?

Slept for 14 hours. Throat and ears don’t hurt so much, but my sinuses are all kinds of messed up.

Gonna drag myself to work today.

*sigh*

I got so much more sick over night. I was really hoping it would be one of those little things you slept through and were fine in the morning.

Couldn’t sleep. Didn’t get better.

Called in sick to work for the first time in three years. Boss sounded disappointed and I felt so bad. But I can’t stand up without falling over and my throat hurts so bad I can’t talk. My job is spent standing up 100% and I’m talking probably about 60% of the time. There is just no way I’d be able to do anything.

Can’t even roll over and be on the laptop because I have to lay on my back to be anything resembling comfortable.

Great, I’m getting sick AND I have to work on my day off tomorrow.

Nose is plugged up, ears are achy, throat hurts bad.

Time to make some tea and honey I guess.

Somebody I went to 4th grade with just sent me a friend request on Facebook.

I moved away after that year of school sixteen years ago. How did this person even find me?! Why do they want to be friends with me on Facebook?! We weren’t even friends in grade school what the hell. Or were we? I can’t even remember!

I am so confused. People confuse me.

Spend $10 on a new filter because the old one crapped out on me…  Or buy an entirely new tank kit that is twice the size of the tank Io is already in for $20…

Yeeahhhh he gets a whole new tank. It looks very nice above our bed though!! I am pleased. I just hope all those plants don’t die after manhandling them… That crypt has been slowly melting over the last week and I hope this better light will help with that.

I watched one of my two all-time-favorite-forever movies last night: A Little Princess.

I don’t think I realized how visually beautiful this movie is when I was younger. Nearly 20 years later and still amazing to watch.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

I seriously cried. It was so freaking awesome. When he first said his idea I was like “Oh my god oh my god oh my god it’s going to be so great!” because I’ve seen exactly how powdered dye runs on fabric when you accidentally get it all over yourself and then somehow get wet.

I LOVE PROJECT RUNWAY SO FREAKING MUCH GUYS.

I’ve been on a mermaid and dragon kick lately so I made some scale texture tools out of shrinky dink!

As weird as the tools look they work GREAT!

Practicin’ some more airbrush.

AND I finally got another Deuce so I can FINALLY start my Cecil/Carlos doll project! I really wanted a Claude Wolf for Carlos, but they’re so expensive for something I’m just going to repaint. So instead I’m doing a body paint on a Deuce.

The first time I painted the entire body (with a makeup sponge) it turned out waaaay too dark for what I wanted. And the tone was way too cool for skin anyway, so I scrubbed it off last night and started with a fresh coat. This one is now TOO LIGHT! Grr! But I think I can make it work with body blushing and maybe a thin layer of something darker over top.

Chocolate cayenne sea salt cookies today! Now that it’s cold outside my oven is always on for one reason or another… Hahaha.
(the salt on top looks funny because it’s Himalayan pink salt. I think it’s a little more mellow than typical sea salt… And it’s pink!! )

Tank is starting to look good. Hairgrass is slow-going but that is to be expected. Got some brazilian pennywort and baby tears in the mail the other day and I finally got them planted.

I’m still having a hard time finding two sticks/driftwood pieces to use as my miniature trees. I already have the “leaves” which are weeping moss (in the baggies floating up there. Yeah, there are holes for water flow) but still no good wood. Boo.

Water is a little murky right now because I spent a while poking the substrate with a chopstick to help aerate it. It was outgassing pretty bad when I tried planting stuff, but it didn’t smell like sulfur so I guess it’s still okay.
