Too many robot cats!

Dear Tumblr app, why must you group everything with the word “zoid” somewhere in it under the tag “zoids”? I want robots when I search that, not golf clubs, naked models, and/or…fashion or something related, I think that one blog is? Those are perfectly fine topics if one wants to search for them, but I searched for robots.

Same issue with random personal posts where people use things like “freak-a-zoid”, except that’s just awkward. Tumblr, don’t put untagged things in tag searches.

At least please let me turn that style of search oooooffffff

Also, my favorite kind of green tea changed bag styles, and either I got a bad batch, or this kind likes to pop open. Cue little bits of tea leaves in my water and a mug to clean instead of delicious tea…

I’ll have to try setting it in the water instead of pouring over it, though that doesn’t help when I add more water to a mostly empty mug.

…Why yes, it is my favorite kind mostly because (besides tasting good) it lasts for ages before getting ominous or off-tasting when made by just leaving the bag in the water and drinking the results over the course of a day. Or two, if I forget about drinking it.

(Don’t make Earl Grey that way. Trust me.)

I save things in my drafts for multiple reasons:

1) I might actually post this someday.

2) I found a pretty/cool thing I want to be able to find or better read later and am in the app.

3) I want to grouch at what I am reblogging but can tell I am too grouchy so I will vent in a draft and not actually post it.

Guess which one of these somehow accidentally ended up in queue instead of drafts. Auggghhh, Tumblr app, why do you make that so easy to do?

Nooooo, Tumblr app, not the Nicholas Sparks movie ads again.

I still want to know if the ads are targeted like recommended posts seem to be, and if so…WHY.

Always reassuring to know one’s bank is using software with up to date documentation.

(The HTML is weird too—there’s bad spacing and a stray > visible there, and the rest of it has things like lots of <br> tags and &bull; for bullet points instead of…you know, actual unordered lists? HTML is a semantic markup language, you say?)

I was worried several of my electronics weren’t charging properly.

I just realized that was because I’d unplugged the other end of the USB charging cable a while earlier so as to plug in an external hard drive—and then left it unplugged afterward.

Well, no wonder.

we joke about procrastination but nothing is worse than the nauseating feeling of having every intention of doing something but physically not being capable of doing it and then feeling like you want to throw up because the deadline is just getting closer and closer.

Rainbow glitter wolf again. I swear I’ll sort out that art backlog sometime and post more actual art!

Serious Paint lines (with the sketch brush, iirc—the free version is very nice other than the ads when you change brushes), Clover Paint color.

"i’m just being the devil’s advocate" did he send you from hell??????? is he paying you for that job or is part of your punishment for being a terrible human being that you gotta do it for free

I meant to post this yesterday and accidentally left it a draft

Jota+: Hey. You’ve been working on that story and character outline a while.
Me: Yes. Must type faster. Hyperfocus.
Jota+: Well, you know that bug where on rare occasions when you try to access an existing file or save a new file over a network share I crash instantly instead?
Me: Must type faste—Uh. You mean the one where I keep saying I need to save files when I first start them to prevent losing the new file…oh, shit.
Jota+: You just tried to open another file over the network.
Me: shit shit shit no not now
Jota+: Goodbye, entire outline and character work~
Jota+: /crashes, no chance to recover file/
Me: I have brought this partially upon myself, yet I must still say: AAAAAARRRRRRGHHH

Got the new Super Smash Bros game and made my Wolff Mii a fighter.

plink-does-stuff:

Is his specialty exploding/ making new friends incredibly awkwardly?

zinkymomo:

I gave him the speed-y sounding moves (rapid slash, jet stab etc) so he just dashes off the stage and blows himself up.

fullburstmode:

Well he did pilot an Energy Liger.

Had to reblog with that comment included. Had to.

I rather like the Manic Street Preachers, but man, I really need to take most of The Holy Bible off my MP3 player so it doesn’t come up on shuffle.

I sometimes do the thing where I pick up the emotions that went into a work with it, and if you know that album you know why that’s not a good thing.

On top of that, the sound of it has this crawling uneasy badbrains feel that I swear I feel in my teeth and the roof/back of my mouth right now. I can feel sound in my head some with these headphones, and this album feels…threatened, anxious, trapped. And that travels down as tension in my shoulders/down my spine. Like it’s pinging wanting to move, get away from predators type instincts… thing. Or that’s my meds kicking in oddly. Or both.

Music does sensory things that bleed elsewhere to me sometimes, and that’s pretty fascinating—there’s a lot of things about music and brains I hear about, including people with brain diseases being able to do things memory or motion they normally can’t when music gets involved—presumably because somehow it’s doing/using or enabling different things? It’s one of my strongest memory association points, I know that much. But how and why it has these effects…

I should post about music/brain things more. And music overall.

Wow, Tumblr app. I typed a whole post about Star Trek and made the mistake of doing the tags before saving a draft or copypasting it elsewhere too. Changed a tag and/or accidentally switched screen orientation (not sure which did it or if it was both combined)…post gone.

Thanks a lot :p.
