Still trying to come to terms with the fact I'll never be a librarian who can speak a dead language and be recruited by a ruggish but handsome explorer for a quest to lift the curse and save the world

[Description: Four images. In the first image, the floor space between two countertops is filthy and caked in grime; the second image is the same space but much cleaner, with only a few spots of dirt in one corner. The bottom two images are of an LG oven with a flat top range, installed in the space between the counters. One shows it closed, and one shows the vivid blue inside of the oven.]
Yesterday I pulled my old oven out of the Oven Hole in the kitchen, in order to clean the floor in preparation for a shiny new oven. Whoever invented Barkeeper’s Friend, I owe them several drinks. In addition to pulling up about a quarter inch solid of grossness, I removed a butter knife, a teaspoon, a wooden spoon, and a LIGHTER from the space between the oven and the counter. 
And today the new oven went in and the old one got hauled away, and it’s gorgeous! It’s BLUE on the inside. 
Meanwhile, my mother, because she loves me, sent me several baking kits so I’d have something to bake in it:

[Description: Sitting on the stove flat top are numerous boxes of Krusteaz and Betty Crocker baking mixes, including a lemon cake, cranberry muffins, honey cornbread, and a chili making kit, as well as some chocolate covered cashews.]
And because she has also known me for 40 years, she sent me

The thing about frogs that live in the dirt are that they got those stumpy little legs and a body that’s designed to blend in with the ground.
So they end up looking like walking potatoes

the god of dirt
The god of dirt came up to me many times and said so many wise and delectable things; I lay on the grass listening to his dog voice, crow voice, frog voice; now he said, and now,
and never once mentioned forever.
— Mary Oliver, from “One or Two Things” in The God of Dirt: Mary Oliver and the Other Book of God by Thomas Wingate Mann · 2004 (via Alive on All Channels)

For someone living their whole life in space, never going planetside, the entire concept of dirt would be unimaginably gross. We don’t even think about it other than a quick washing of hands here and there, but just picture it from a foreign perspective.
Spacer: “What’s dirt made of, again?”
Earthling: “Lots of things! Rock dust for one, and a lot of plants that dried up and fell apart.”
Spacer: “Unpleasant, but okay.”
Earthling: “And other plants that got rotten and moldy, and decomposed.”
Space: “Less okay.”
Earthling: “And the dead bugs and other animals.”
Spacer: “What.”
Earthling: “Sure, anything that didn’t get eaten. Oh, and a lot that did! How could I forget about the poop?”
Spacer: “You can stop now.”
Earthling: “No, any garden dirt is going to be largely manure! Once the poop isn’t fresh anymore, it’s great for helping plants grow.”
Spacer: “And this is the stuff you have stuck in your boot treads every time you come back from visiting home??”
Earthling: “Sure. It washes off.”
Spacer: *reaching for hand sanitizer and religious symbols*  “Go have your boots run through the contagion chamber in the medical ward. Those are a biohazard.”
Earthling: *laughing*  “It’s just dirt!”
(Now that I think about it, the immune systems of people in sanitized space stations might not be as good as those of people raised with good clean dirt.)

Being a goblin is all about self-expression.
you wanna wear that ugly knitted sweater you found at a thrift shop? do it.
you wanna display bones in your room that you found in the woods? do it.
you wanna wear so much jewelry that you look like a creature straight out of the Spiderwick Chronicles? do it.
you wanna run away into the woods and decay next to the river covered in moss? yeah, sure, do it.
you wanna go feral and live in a run-down cabin in the middle of nowhere? if that's what you want, do it.
you wanna take all the blankets off your bed and sleep on the floor with no remorse? do it.
you wanna run around in the rain with no shoes on, getting yourself covered in mud? do it!
self-expression.
