My mother is attempting to breed eyelash crested geckos. So far only one of the two breeding pairs has laid eggs and we’re not sure if the eggs are fertile or not.
And yet she’s already looking to order more geckos.
We have two breeding pairs,a male on his own, and four babies who we can’t even sex yet because they’re only two months old.
And she’s looking to buy more geckos.
She does not have the room for more geckos male or female, and everytime I mention this I get snapped at that ‘she can buy whatever she damn well pleases.’
Now most would tell me to let my mother crash and burn on her own.
Here’s the thing though, if she fails to realize she’s wasting money I’m the one who gets stuck taking care of the geckos.
It’s always been like this. She gets really invested in something,then when it doesn’t move fast enough for her I wind up taking care of whatever it was.
Sadly I’m being proved right about certain things.
My mother’s gecko’s are sadly dying. One died today, though we had been trying to fight death with her ever since a tank accident caused her to come face to face with our cats. Two died not long ago and we’re not certain what caused it. And one of the infants is currently dying from a neurological disorder that was caused by his egg not being incubated correctly. The sad thing about the infant is I warned my mother not to use these weird egg spacer things that kept the eggs out of the dirt. He’s the only infant to survive that process and well. yeah.
I get snapped at about reminding my mother we need to clean the tanks today(apparently watching a movie on amazon instant, you know something she can pause, is more important then the care of her geckos) and was snapped at when I asked her to turn on the lights so I could get a better look at the mentioned infant.
My mother as admitted only doing this to sell them as quick cash, not realizing how fragile these geckos are.
That moment when you really want to write your story but you also want to ask people who match one or more of the main characters of your story how they’d feel about certain things that your character is going to do…and you have no idea how to do that
It’s weird I just found out that someone who was my friend in high school was recently killed
And yet I feel nothing.
I mean I feel sorry for his family, his wife and his kid…but it’s not like I’m crying or anything. I just feel sorry for them. I don’t know if it’s because he and I stopped talking years before now or simply because we weren’t all that close to begin with.
Today is all about love and couples and romance…but for me it’s also the day my grandmother passed on in what my family thinks is suicide. She had been told the week prior that her cancer had returned.
Personally I don’t believe she did and that it was an accident. But today is still a tough day for me.

It’s supposed to be my OC Grace and Thorin. I was joking to a Thorin roleplayer about our characters getting into a relationship and how it made me laguh to think of Grace all dolled up since the majority of the time she’s in her armor(Grace is a Ranger in training).
So I’ve just set the alarm on my phone to go off at midnight with a song of the chipmunks singing ‘we wish you a merry Christmas’ turned the volume up and left it out in the living room. Taking bets on my parent’s reactions.
I want to revive an old account. It was my Aethe Eodai character, an OC for The Avengers.
Aethe was a living doll created by a man to replace his daughter after she was killed by a mugger. The doll was crafted to look exactly like his daughter, but the personality was different. After a few years he went mad when the mugger got out of jail and started plotting to kill the president,replace him with a doll like Aethe and control him. Aethe called the threat in and S.H.I.E.L.D came and took her dad out(to jail…he’s not dead). Aethe was than taken into custody.
In threads she worked as a seamstress for the Avengers while in custody, designing their costumes or making full wardrobes for them if they went undercover.
Why is it when guys say “I don’t wanna play a chick” most people agree with them
but when I’m talking to my stepdad in Gamestop and some dudebro overhears me say I don’t like playing games where I can’t pick my gender he gets to call me a bitch and lecture me about the gaming industry?”
I have the predator alert of Okcupid which puts a red box around the profile picture and username of anyone who answers a “predator question” in a way you’ve said you don’t like.
Surprisingly the most common question I get alerted on is “Is being under the influence of alcohol an excuse for stupidity” with surprisingly most people answering yes.
Maybe it’s because my birth father is an alcoholic or because of how my mom raised me but I was taught that is you do something stupid because you drank it’s still your fault because you chose to drink.
Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
I’m dependent on shit to help me sleep? I just had three wisdom teeth removed and the pain meds help me forget that enough so that I can fucking sleep. You’re the one who can’t get through half an hour without downing another six pills for your back! At least I’m still active through my pain, you use yours as an excuse to only do the shit you want to do and not do anything I ask for help with!
