Delcat: Uh…yeah? Vampire bats? Rabies bites?
Delcat: Also…most mammals have teeth?
Megan: I knew that but I didn’t think about it
Delcat: Also they’re basically flying rodents?
Delcat: Actually they are flying rodents but
Megan: I thought they had, like, cute little bird teeth?
Delcat: ……..birds don’t have teeth
Megan: I know but you know what I mean
I KNOW birds don’t have teeth and I KNOW bats do have teeth, I’m just saying they shouldn’t have THOSE teeth is all.
Here I made you a diagram.
bitsypon asked: Your job title is literally "page" (or contains it at least)? For some reason that just seems really neat to me. :D
I…wow, I cannot believe I never realized the pun in that. Holy shit.
BUT YES I am a library page which means I’m at the lowest rung of the ladder. Shelving is my main job, but there are also roughly ten billion smaller tasks we’re in charge of, like emptying drop bins, retrieving requested material for the pull list, cleaning computers, and making things look neat at the beginning and end of the day (and usually a few times in the middle).
As for advancement, I’m hoping that soon I’ll become a library squire and then that a watery tart will fling a scimitar at me and I’ll become library king.
No, you upgrade from page to
My sister doggedly read poetry to me while I played video games as a small child, and while I have since voiced my appreciation for it, I believe it’s not appreciation enough.
O vast earth-apple, waiting to be fried,
Of all life’s starers the most many-eyed,
What furtive purpose hatched you long ago
In Indiana or in Idaho?
DON’T MAKE ME TALK ABOUT FOOD IN FRANCE PRE- AND POST- WORLD WAR I
I’LL DO IT
oh hey nice line you got there
OOPS I CROSSED IT
Wait, what poem?
And I’m not sure if I should inflict this on the Tumblr fandom, maybe if you get on Steam later?
You totally should. And Late Rising by Jacques Prevert, Megan read it to me when I was ten or so and it’s always stuck with me. It’s about an egg, you are getting random eggs left and right today! There’s another (more accurate?) translation here.
I love that poem. You were ten when I read you that? Oops. Poetry!

Megan came into the room to ask if I was going to eat anything as I posted that
and pointed out that I’ve eaten nothing but yogurt and citrus lumps for like three days now
now I am being handed food

I made him add the “beyond” so it didn’t look like he was being fed by a ghost.
So, for some reason this week I’ve been wanting to read about happy ‘alt’ families. Just fluff, I guess. But every single poly blog I find is about horrible breakups and such. Now I know there’s probably tons of happy non-traditional families out there, they’re just likely happily doing their own thing and not blogging about it online.
But…. anyone out there in Tumblr land fall on the poly side of things and occasionally post domestic goodness?
Boosting because yes this please.
