Ugh, I just can't stand this one fb friend's profile pic.

He grew out his hair, and has the same hairline and a similar hair colour to the ex I met him through, and then add the beard he grew (which looks TERRIBLE), he just looks way too much like my ex that it bothers me every time I see it.

(On a related note: why are men so bad at looking decent?)

I think my pets have some kind of evil plan to throw off my sleep schedule again so I can't go out on Saturday at 7:30am...

@Satsuma
That's all really interesting, thanks πŸ™‚

Considering buying a black ring... I did used to wear rings a bit, so wouldn't mind starting up again. Maybe I can even find a fidget ring that'll work for it πŸ˜€

All the talk about the colours is making me wanna get to work on my little purple and grey ace-spectrum blanket I've been planning, haha. I keep flip-flopping on the pattern, and even whether it should be knit or crochet, lol, too much of a perfectionist!

@Satsuma
I would be interested in reading up on that πŸ™‚

I don't think I mind having allosexuality kinda included, while allosexual people aren't, to me it makes more room for aces who are sometimes more at that end of the spectrum. If we start deciding a maximum amount of sexual attraction that makes for the line between asexuality and allosexuality then that's just going to start excluding people.

@Satsuma
Thanks for explaining. I'm ace spectrum but didn't actually know what each stripe is for, I just assumed the white-grey-black was meant to represent asexuality as a spectrum.

It's so on brand for me to have nightmares about groceries...

But I seem to have anti-jinxed myself, so by having a dream about half my order being out of stock, in reality all of my order appears to be on its way.

(It's been a long time since I've had two deliveries in a row with nothing out of stock, really pleased with the local Coles.)

"You don't eat tea and biscuits, you're a cat!"

Kitty cares not for my words, she ate a bit of bikkie anyway.

Me when my dog snuggles someone else: Traitor!! Such betrayal! How could you??

My dog when I pat the cat: Treachery!! Such unfaithfulness! Don't you love me anymore??

Honestly I have no idea where he gets it from πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Because I'm a mature adult, I whispered a drawn-out "traitor!" at my dog while closing the bathroom door.

He abandoned me to sleep in my housemate's doorway, where he's being doing is very 'subtle' thing of digging at the carpet to announce how tired he is and tell me to go to bed.

Clearly he's being a childish traitor, and I'm a very sensible human who's stayed up until 3am for good reasons!

Tfw you have enough clothes for your dog to consider hanging them up with your own clothes....

I wish my phone could pick up my cat's growling, bc I don't think I'd be alone in being surprised by how deep and loud it is (especially coming from such a small kitty).

Thinking about it, I'm a little more understanding of why two cats twice her size think she's scary when she's just a pair of glowing eyes under a bed and a deep growl.

@offtheball
He actually woke me up in the night because he was pawing at the back door so loudly. So I think the song suits him pretty well, lol

(That and "what's in the box, in the box, what's in the box today?" from a kids show, because as I've been emptying boxes they become cat boxes. There was even a fight last night over one of them.)
