Magnús Tómasson: The Unknown Official (Reykjavík, Iceland)
I found this sculpture rather unsettling. Sometimes I feel like I have my head in a rock.
The trail up to the saddle and the trail down from the saddle.
Jude and Cabal romp around in their enclosure. What sounds similar to brawling black bears is actually typical vocalization for Jude, who taught it to Cabal, and now the neighbors are convinced that I keep wild animals on my property - and I suppose that in a way, I kind of do. Just look at these two go!
I wish more people understood what play looks like rather than just listening to sounds. My boyfriend’s dog get’s kicked out of dog parks because of similar vocalizations.
People are dumb.
…And actually, so are dog parks.
I went on a gay weekend and wore my binder for much of the time with my pants in the room and no-one twigged - they thought it was just a manky vest. I think if it’s just once, for an emergency sitch, it’s not SO awful to sleep in. It will cause serious backache though so really only a ONE OFF LAST RESORT.
If I’ve been binding for longer then 5 hours I start having an asthma attack regardless of how loose the binder is.
Oh fair; my asthma is EIA so although binding drastically increases my chances of an attack because my lungs need to work harder full stop, I’m still able to manage if I just maintain a steady level of laziness.
I wish you the best of luck. I know Ireland is different, but I’m finding that my generation and the ones below are really not bothered about my being trans.
I hope it works out for you. Luck luck luck !
Sleep in a big old sweatshirt and/or layers. I know it’s hot, but it worked for me when I was deployed with my work. Much better than sleeping in a binder.
The big day is finally here! I hope you’re ready, because we’re about to embark on an 18 week journey of discovery, adventure, and soul-crushing pain. Woo! \o/
Today is really just a day for introducing ourselves (make a post, tag it “tolkienreadalong” so we all can see), and getting familiar with the blog (seriously, take a look around, there is so much helpful information in that sidebar for you, including the official Schedule, the download link for the Reader’s Guide, links to the read-along on other websites, detailed descriptions of many of the activities we’ll be doing during the read-along, and much more!
Once you’ve done all that, dust off your copy of The Silmarillion and get ready, because tomorrow we start reading The Ainulindale!
It’s today! It’s today!
Hi everyone, I’m Chloe. I have been in love with all things Middle Earth for about 10 years now, thanks to one of my pals #AgentRusco (remember when we tried to learn elvish!?!) I’ve read the Silmarillion three times, and my favorite part has to be The Ainulindale. i am a huge fan of myths and in particular, creation myths.
I can’t wait to see the bingo card creations!
I’m a tad sad that I won’t be joining the readalong.
I do remember learning some Elvish. I even “wrote” a “poem” for English class once…
I miss those days.
Dude. Dude. Are bears Catholic? YES. Do you have any idea how many toffees that magic man eats? A LOT. And then he’s all “SHOW US THE MEANING OF HASTE” and I’m like “SHOW US RUNNING BY YOUR DAMN SELF FOR ONCE, YOU COULD USE IT.”
