New Instance, newly-edited post:

Hi, I'm Pamela! I live by a great lake (well, it's alright). I really love animals and have a pet turtle and cats. I like to learn new things and work with my hands. I like ecology, , , , books and nature, and I enjoy painting but don't spend enough time doing it.

I have and write about that pretty regularly, now, as well as my experiences with microwork.


I kinda miss Trader Joe's but I was extremely upset by how they treated our locals who worked there during the early days of covid while pretending they're "different"

Which really just kinda leaves the natural foods store for interesting fruits and things, and if you want to meet the racist leftist antivaxx crowd, def try the natural foods store

I guess they finally finished fighting and started building our first whole foods. The building is interesting and it's smaller than I expected. One thing I used to like to do every year is make a really, really good fruitcake, which for me mostly means a variety of (non-neon) cherries and other sulfate-free dried fruit (family allergy, I guess since I don't have it there no reason but I'm somehow convinced anyway) and then toasting nuts and buying something really nice to age it in. I can't imagine shopping at whole foods for much of anything else (and honestly it's superfluous, it's right down the road from the flagship Wegmans and if I want to spend money I don't have on stuff I can just go there), but I bet it will be great for getting my fruitcake just right. :blobaww:

I get to go out like once a month and I need to be able to get excited about it or I'm just going to stop

This is a good way

There's a retirement/independent living village nearby that is basically the set of The Prisoner. It is called "The Cottages" and has these immaculate paved walkways and the whole thing is basically theme park living for the wealthy elderly.

And it feels ominous AF.

They've just added a health facility there to the more assisted end of things with signs covered in printed emoji, etc. This is not making the vibe any better. :goose_peek:

Neat, I'm on "indie fragrances that smell like petrichor" tiktok, that's about as niche as I've gotten in awhile

The photo with this multichromic eyeshadow listing basically explains at why a glance why I love playing with makeup. Humans are beautiful, faces are beautiful, but makeup creates a *mood*

Nice day, whew. My sweetie is enjoying playing with a new toy. I'm going to watch historical dramas and at some point have 🍦

I've got a bunch of internal combustion engine knowledge in my head I'll hopefully never need again and I would like to swap it out for either mushroom identification or lampshade decoration please, is this the right desk?

I have decided that lower decks isn't awful, their decision to center the most annoying character in a really caricaturish way for the first few episodes was awful. I sat through the whole thing and he looped and kept watching and the start was just as viscerally off-putting on third watch as the first

Tuffy clearly needs a romantic partner, where is giraffe tinder

Or like "plenty of acacia in the tree" I dunno, how do giraffes date anyway? He says he's not interested in hookups

Are there giant stuffed giraffes at the mall? Yes. Are there wiggly articulated wooden giraffes sold as models? Yes. Are there strange, abstract giraffes designed from children's drawings at IKEA? Yes. Do giraffes decorate a ridiculous number of children's room sets on TV? Yes. Is there a beautiful giraffe toy inside the Disneyland Pinocchio ride I did not notice across about 50 rides on it but suddenly saw front and center tonight with my giraffe beside me? Yes.

I had no idea *everything* featured a giraffe toy until I got a giraffe toy of my own

Ok that is great

Take a pair of regular rise jeans that and fit you well and wrap the waistband around your neck, see if the two sides meet.

Mine is an exact match, and now I can check sizes to match my natural waist at the thrift store, heck yeah

Harassment, musk, spacex 

I'm sorry, I'm still back on the idea that in order to entice someone into a sex act, he would offer to buy her a HORSE

One horse. What does that get you?

πŸ€” This story is ridiculous, but under the circumstances it barely requires thought to say "sure, that tracks." But the bit about a flight attendant being encouraged by her superiors to, on her own time, under her own initiative, license as a masseuse to get ahead in that workplace makes it sound like there's a potential cascade of stories held back by NDAs, and not just about the one man.

My brother and I have this movie idea where we cast every single actor whose signature skill is terrifying intensity in a chill slice of life movie about a quiet little coffee place where nothing major happens

These body butters are real nice (from Etsy)
I did not know I specifically wanted to rub *striped* goo onto my papery thighs, and it is real fun pretending it's buttercream
