Your outward identity isn't about conformity; it's about integrity. Surround yourself only with those things that make your heart sing.

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

I swear, this picture is going to end up on my Tumblr a thousand more times before May.
But.
Kyle and Kat and I have been talking about this a lot, how we haven’t really evolved well in terms of childbearing, because not only would a human child that’s developed as much as it probably should during gestation completely destroy its mother’s insides, it would also just not be able to come out.
Like yeah, vaginas are stretchy motherfuckers, but even as much as everything stretches, the bones in a baby’s head still have to overlap in order for said baby to actually fit through the birth canal, and even with that mechanism in place (a mechanism that makes newborns look like Coneheads immediately after birth, incidentally), you can still encounter complications where the head is just too big or the shoulders won’t fit through or things like that. 
And it’s so horribly inefficient! Like it would probably be a lot less dangerous if human babies were developed enough to survive outside the womb without medical intervention at around the age of gestational viability (~24 weeks; this is the age where the fetus is developed enough that it won’t automatically die as soon as it’s out of the womb, but it will still need SIGNIFICANT medical intervention and will usually spend another ~16 weeks in the NICU): the head’s still small enough, the woman’s body is uncomfortable but not tormented, etc.
But alas, that’s not the case. We need 40 weeks to develop, and being born at 37-42 weeks is pretty taxing on both the mother and the baby, and I think evolution is drunk.

Come on Abby you and I both know it’s not evolution, it’s cause Eve ate that damn apple.

HAHAHAHA RIGHT
My mother actually said that to me the other day, when I was complaining about the latest onslaught of pregnancy annoyances (round ligament pain, yay!). She was like, “Blame Eve,” and I sort of side-eyed her in a major way, like seriously. Are we really going to do this? Let’s not do this.

Saving this to show the husband later. The other day he was rubbing my bump (I’m 20 weeks pregnant) and wondering out loud whether I was really going to get much bigger.
Oh honey. Just you wait. I have 20 weeks to go.

Lent

So…I’m breaking from tumblr for Lent. Rest assured I will be back after Easter, but I’m going to take some time to catch up on some non-fiction reading and do some planning for the future. At 15 weeks pregnant, I figure I should start preparing for change.

If you might miss me, feel free to message me tonight and we can figure out a way to stay connected for the next 40ish days. The rest of you, see you after Easter!

Fem!Ori - Katsucon 2014
Made and modelled by me
Photography by Lazy Cat Photography

I’d been dreaming about getting winter snow pictures of this cosplay since way back in May when I first started working on it for a summer convention. And while the big Katsu snowstorm made me almost a full day late for the con, I forgive it entirely for letting me take these amazing photos with Karina!! They turned out totally Erebor-tastic! Outside in the snow is the perfect place for Ori to read her favorite books and practice her aim at icicles~!

It’s a sign of growing up that I identify more and more with Giles

We all become Giles, in the end.

I think we all aspire to be Giles, with less personal tragedy and fewer concussions.

Pretty sure it’s some kind of sign that I identified with Giles when the show was on the air and I was nineteen.
