My financial aid is coming
i got the email!!
they tried to k**l me
but i remain
unrelated: my client’s neighbor’s donkey was making hella noises while i took this pic and i need to figure out how to make them my client too.
I really outdid myself tonight, wow guys. look for this and other special recipes in my upcoming where the f**k are my student loans cookbook. also featuring a bonus recipe for vegan hotdogs right out of the package. available (probably even before my financial aid) wherever fine cookbooks are sold.
My boy was in fine form tonight. he had his recheck at the vet for his teeth (all good) and acted super shy the whole time, putting his paws up on me wanting to be held. then when the doc pulled out a jar of treats he came right out of his shell and flew into her arms, grabbing at the treats before she even got the container open. then on our way out, anyone who said his name he ran toward them and did his paw-waving dance, because he thought it meant they were going to give him more treats. finally a receptionist gave him one, which he excitedly jumped at the counter and snatched, only to dramatically throw it on the ground like ron swanson with a piece of veggie bacon and booked it for the door. bruce is outie 5000.
“who left these feet prints in the driveway, do you think it’s the same guy who digs the holes in my lawn?” i dunno buddy, but based on those feet i think he might be bigger than you.
someone on nextdoor was recently talking about the family of raccoons that has been “terrorizing” the neighborhood and asked if anyone had any solutions, she was thinking about buying some traps and relocating them. i said i’d loan her my traps if i thought that was a good solution, but aside from disrupting not one but two communities, not being super nice for the raccoons, and being illegal, relocating them is a lot of work and only a temporary fix because new raccoons will keep moving in. that’s the thing with carrying capacity - as long as the resources are there, you’re going to have animals around. i was happy to see lots of people hopping on the thread to say that san pedro is one of the few places in la with wild areas and we should keep it that way, the animals were here first, and it’s our job to compromise not kick them out. the original poster understood. now if we could all get together and have a chat with the torrance people in their “evict coyotes” t-shirts and teach them how wildlife biology works... 🐺 🤦♀️
Last week i finally tried the new-ish (not that new but new to me) vegan option from @theflamebroiler and it was v good! according to @vegnews, this was flame broiler’s first change to their menu in 21 years, and came due to high demand from consumers. “our customers have been requesting a meatless alternative, so the addition of organic tofu not only allows us to better cater to existing fans, but also helps us to broaden our customer base.”
to order: choose your size (mini, bowl, or plate), with white or brown rice, and tofu as your protein. they also have three sauces you can add yourself (hot, hot hot, or magic), all are vegan. i got the magic, because duh. ✨ #whatveganseat#flamebroiler
Rainy day vibes with my fav pizza, working on my website, watching nightmare before christmas with the pup, pretending i’m not afraid i might literally drop dead if my financial aid doesn’t appear soon. 🎃 #itsfine#imfine#help
A semi-serious question:
is anyone else kind of disturbed by the female mannequins being used to hold signs all over town, primarily by gas stations and car washes? the first time i saw this one from afar, i thought it was an actual woman. i thought, how f*****g objectifying, they hired some poor woman to get all dressed up, hair and makeup done, just to hold a sign and attract men to this gas station. then i realized it was a mannequin so like - they bypassed objectifying an actual woman, and figured the same job could be done for free by just using the likeness of one. after a couple weeks i noticed a heavy chain around her legs, which was a whole ‘nother level of s****y imagery. now she has a new outfit, but she’s missing her hair and both her arms. and like, what kind of customer would be influenced at all by this type of signage? like. “bro, my tank is almost empty, which gas station should we go to?” “i dunno dude, let’s go to the one around the corner with that hot mannequin. i think she’s totally into me.” yeah no, that conversation isn’t happening, literally all this does for a business is make it seem creepy as hell. i legit won’t stop at a gas station that has one of these and i pass by this one several times a week.
anyway the moral of this story is to not be f*****g gross with ladydolls, that’s all thank you for coming to my ted talk. 😤
