harry potter + christmas
We snorkeled here last weekend (I was so excited to be in a wet suit for the first time ever) and I really wanted to enjoy it, but was so fucking terrified I ended up only being able to do it for about half an hour.
Visibility wasn’t great, and I’ve developed terrible motion sickness so bobbing in the current didn’t help. Almost chundered. We saw some cool fish, but I ended up being very disappointed in myself!
#so i was thinking about the royal baby and why it’s causing such a stir #beyond the crazy rituals and dudes in feathers and cannons and shit #and i think part of it is timing #it just seems like there is NO good news these days #injustice and sex scandals #and this is just a nice burst of good news #a baby was born #and hopefully it will be loved #and prince william will have learned from his mother and show the kid that not everyone has the privilege they do #and then there’s that i honestly think from the few times we see them that they just look happy #they look like a happy couple #and now a happy family #and i hope they are#and just because we’re focusing a lot on this right now #it doesn’t mean everything else goes away #it’s just a nice something to calm you down and remind you that not everything is horrible
Just read 4 books in 3 days. On a kick since I learned I can rent eBooks from my local library for free and read them on my Kindle! What a win.
#Don’t pander to me kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds., #Solar flare might crop up cook us in our seats., #And wait till you’re sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles., #See if you’re still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding!, #Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence., #keep calm and DAMMIT JIM,
