Gotta make up for lost time, as you know.

Wanna hear something awful?

Apparently, my great grandmother (on my mom's side) was batshxt crazy. My mom has been telling me stories about her. Here's my favorite one so far:

She and her husband bought a new house and there was a real, original Tiffany window in the house. Which, if you didn't know, are very expensive and fancy. She instructed some workers to remove the window, which they did.

And then she told them to smash it.

And they said, "Uh, are you crazy? This is worth a ton of money and it's super rare."

And she said, "I know. And I want you to smash it, and I want to watch."

So she made them smash it in front of her.

Why? Because she was nuts. I'm definitely incorporating her into some of my future horror stories.

I'm flying back to Minnesota this weekend! (Continued)

I'm working on a new horror story. I've had loads of inspiration lately, but not a lot of time to write. So I'm making time by shirking my other obligations because they've made me bitter and exhausted.

I'm trying to incorporate a poem into my story. But that makes me nervous because it's so hard to write a good poem - oftentimes, it just ends up cringey and it ruins the story. But I need to get out of my comfort zone so we'll see what I can do.

Another intern quit at my internship. That makes three in the last few weeks. That's how awful my boss is. But here I am, just plugging along.

That's all I got. Sorry I'm not more interesting.

Tell me things!

What's the new story about?
1 month ago - Thursday 11/8/18 - 2:46:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
The new story is about a girl who goes to stay with an estranged aunt. She's looking through her aunt's library and comes across a journal with only one thing written in it - a poem. She reads it and then promptly forgets about it.

Until that night, when the nightmares begin...

DUN DUN DUNNNNNN

Figures you would be sick enough to like it...

Honestly, the more my mom tells me about this woman, the more I'm impressed that my grandpa (her son) turned out to be such a good person. Like... she totally abused him and the rest of her kids. And grandpa became one of the best men I've ever known.

I had a crazy Aunt. One day she told her sister (also my mom’s sister) That she fell asleep in front of the TV and when she opened her eyes the room wa full of people. What people? Policemen and Policewomen. She wasn’t hallucinating. Some guy had tried to break into the apartment upstairs and had fallen and smashed his skull in on her back step and was now a corpse waiting to be removed..... except she refused to leave her flat so they could carry the body out. After much failed negotiation. She remained in the front lounge and they carried him out. What they couldn’t understand was why she refused to give them her name. Because I don’t want to read about myself in the Sun (trashy newspaper) in the morning.

She became very deaf and short sighted but wouldn’t turn up her hearing aid or wear her glasses. At Christmas she was sitting with everyone in my mom’s house trying to follow what was going on. She asked me if it was “Eastenders” on the TV (British soap, always has a big plot line for Christmas Day) It was actually the movie Jurassic Park. I still think a T Rex running riot in the Queen Vic would be a greatest Christmas plot twist ever.

You must be crazy too...

...or you are Sleepy's aunt in real life.

...or maybe both.

The broken window story makes me sad. It's so hard to find well constructed things that it's a pity to destroy good stuff.

I used to regularly throw out things that weren't in style or to my liking but now I'm finding myself hanging onto some things. I have a whole second set of pots and pans that I can't get rid of since they are well made.

I'm becoming a sentimental old coot.

I sorta wish I had a crazy relative so I could contribute to the mad stories
They are all frustratingly sane
Maybe I'm the mad relative

Hm. I don't think i have crazy relative stories. We are all pretty crazy, but in a repressed sort of way.

I'm starting to like nice things. Which is weirding out my husband a bit. We are getting a new dresser and i want it to match the other dresser we have. And i want it well made and sturdy. My husbands like, i thought you took pride in stuff not matching.
I did. But now im old. And want well made, nice stuff. It weirds me out too.

I am ALSO starting to like nice things!! Like the other day I was in target and saw these plates and I was like "omg, those plates are so pretty, I want them for my apartment."

And then I was sad because here I am excited about PLATES.

I can get behind the intentional destruction of a valuable useless thing just for the sake of it tbh. Its noble at its basest. This thing is worth money because its umm worth money. You should extract that, squeeze that stone till blood pours forth. Uh no f*ck that and f"ck you, gonna burn it. What no why its worth money what wrong with you. Whats wrong with me is i believe a useless thing is useless no matter how much some scumf*ck millionaire will pay for the status of having it. But you could have so much money. But im fine as it is

Glorious

I get what you're saying, but I don't think she destroyed it for any noble reasons like anti-Capitalist sentiment. I think she just liked destroying shxt and hurting other people...
1 month ago - Friday 11/9/18 - 11:26:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh i didnt mean anything as activist as anti capitalist sentiments, i just meant the self destructive pettiness of it was goddamn admirable. I mean yeah you can play it from a dark angle if you want because of course you can its ultimiately a senseless act but its so vaguely agressive towards nothing in particular that you can pretty much assign anything to it that you want

It would make for a great character intro because it is so ambiguiously hateful but youd have to breadcrumb it out afterword with more decisively evil things

Did you know that the term for comrade in Chinese (tongzhi) has become a slang term for a gay person?

Like, if you call someone comrade, you're actually calling them gay.

See, you'd think when they taught us that term in Chinese class, they'd have mentioned that. They did not.
