I’ve barely seen anything on tumblr about the blackout in Washington DC

There’s been radio silence from the city since 1am local time, tweets about it are being deleting and suppressed

[edit to add: there’s now reports coming out that the blackout was fake, I can’t confirm either way, be vigilant]

[edit 2: please stop sharing this version of the post, I’ve posted a reblogged version with links to DC residents saying it’s a hoax]

Mammon: So MC, what’s your type?

MC: Blue eyes, white hair, a model, easily-flustered, oblivious, funny, and caring

Mammon: Sounds kinda like me. Too bad we’re just friends.

MC: Did I mention oblivious?

Mammon: Yes, why?

MC: Okay, just making sure.

Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready.

This is meant as fun and alternative way to create a character when you don’t know what kind of character you want or just have a plot and no character and hate to search for character questionnaires. Or don’t like using them.
You just need two six sided dice and pen and paper or anything else to note your outcome. This will expand later on.
The number under the traits tell which one you got. 
Of course, you can skip parts when you think it is not necessary or don’t want to give your character one of the traits (yet).

I live for terrible art. Note: I don’t like art that is intentionally or ironically terrible, I like things that are just so earnestly inept and/or bizarre that they fail as what they are trying to be but horseshoe back around into glorious postmodernistic portraits of their creators.

I went to a Goodwill today (my friend needed help carrying a couch and we practiced good social distancing!) and I found a DOOZY of a book. It’s called Decoded Dog, so I picked it up thinking “oh cool, a book about dog behavior or genetics or something, relevant to my blog an interests!” - I was NOT PREPARED for “A Canine Mystery Novel”


Then I turn it over and BOY HOWDY did I strike gold.


So it’s speculative fiction about a dog pandemic that takes a hard left into the guardrail about 2/3rds of the way through and becomes a big pharma conspiracy thriller with what seems to be (from the brief skimming I did in the car on the way home) a concerning amount of anti-vax sentiment. The author is a PhD geneticist and standard poodle enthusiast, so there are literal whole pages passive-aggressively espousing the merits of poodles written with the poetic nuance of a hard-science dissertation. The rest of the book is mostly pages upon pages of dense, stilted exposition trying desperately to explain graduate-level virology to an audience that would buy a “canine mystery novel”. The author also apparently rescues poodles with Addison’s disease, so there is a ton of information about canine Addison’s shoehorned in throughout - like, enough that it feels like paid product placement but for an adrenal disorder.

Overall, this book is topical, timely, dogs. 14/10 absolute masterpiece that I am so excited to dive into whole hog, please stay tuned for a review of the whole book
