my best friend always told me not to make someone a priority if they only make you an option. so i’m wondering why I’m up in the wee hours of the morning, with an ache of disappointment brewing in my chest because he hasnt messaged me. I shouldn’t be waiting for anything, I’m too good to sit moping about on people that have no meaning but i always end up doing just that…waiting…for that magical someone. i need a reality check.
Religion is like a penis.
It’s fine to have one.
It’s fine to be proud of it.
But please dont whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And please dont try to shove it down my children’s throats.”—~narniaisinmycloset.tumblr.com
in place of christmas, this is a winter celebration of german pagans. connected with the celebration of the “wild hunt”. still used in nordic countries. christmas customs like caroling and such came from yule-tide customs. it is a time when “berserkers” don’t fight but are at peace for a few days. modern day yule-tides are held by wiccans and neopagans all over the world.
this was pretty much a cult for nobility in hungary in the middle ages. founded by the king of hungary and the holy roman emperor. also appeared in germany and italy. its a christian cult that required its members to fight those not christian, in particular the ottoman turks. the symbol they wore was a dragon in a circle with its tail in its mouth.
he was the prince of wallachia. his full name is Vlad Tepes. he ruled in the mid-1400’s. he resisted the expansion of the ottoman empire, and whomsoever got in his way paid in torture and death. he apparently inspired the story of dracula by bram stoker. he was born in transylvania. his father, Vlad Dracul, was born in the year of the dragon and joined the “order of the dragon”. the prince vlad also joined the order. at one point in his life he was held prisoner and tortured by his captors, which may explain his torturing of others. he went to war with the ottomans and won, until he ran out of money for funding and was thrown in prison for treason. he was buried in wallachia, but when researchers many years later went back to look for him, they found nothing in his grave. (suspicious.)

“the platonic fold is the explosive boundary where the platonic mindset enters in contact with the messy reality, where the gap between what you know and what you think you know becomes dangerously wide.”—~black Swan
the time difference between moonrise on evenings is shorter. said to bring farmers and hunters track their prey. people can continue being productive by moonlight after sunset. the ecliptic makes a narrow angle with the horizon. after the autumn equinox, it is the first full moon. happens once every four years. bigger, brighter, and more colorful than most moons. caused by light from the moon passing through atmospheric particles that scatters the blue component of moonlight (reflected white sunlight), while the red components travel faster to the eye. the size is due to how low the moon hangs in the sky, which is known as the “moon illusion”. also known as the wine moon, singing moon, and elk moon.
this addiction can be very dangerous. rapes and stalkings are often a counterproduct of this addiction. it comes from a lack of love in childhood (my mother fills that criteria). Often feels detached or isolated (check). mistakes drama for intimacy (always fighting with partner). avoids being alone at all costs. afraid to trust the other
A Pimp Named Slickback: So you see, my dearest Riley, it is this instinctive and burning need to procreate between a man and a b!tch that not only keeps the human race going but also fuels many important industries such as my very own.
Riley: So what do you think about Homies Over Hoes?
A Pimp Named Slickback: Is that something at Denny’s? I don’t know what that is.
Riley: Homies Over Hoes? You know, like, you supposed to put your homie over a ho. That’s how pimps do, right?
A Pimp Named Slickback: I don’t think Homies Over Hoes is a sentiment that A Pimp Named Slickback can cosign, Riley. I mean don’t get me wrong. A Pimp Named Slickback would put a lot of things over a ho. Money over a ho? Always. Brand new gators over a ho? Absolutely. A turkey sandwich with just tomato? Guaranteed. But homies? Oh no. A Pimp Named Slickback don’t do sh!t for the homies. Let me reiterate. Don’t do sh!t for the homies. Unless the homie wanna walk that stroll and get that money, a homie ain’t gettin’ a goddamn thing. And the same goes for brothers, peeps, dudes, fellas, dunnies, comrades, whatever the Fuk niggas is callin’ each other nowadays. Sound like some gay sh!t to me.
