Throwback Thursday! At the Tower of London, during my first visit to the UK. 1995-ish, I think?

Were I a fabulously wealthy eccentric*, I would have our couches and armchairs reupholstered in this fabric. (Because if I were a fabulously wealthy eccentric, I could afford the cleaning service necessary to have furniture like that while also having 3 pet cats.)
*Working on the “fabulously wealthy” part. I think I’ve achieved the “eccentric” side of things.

Hey tumblr I have a bit of a favor to ask

sexbathorrorvampiresex:

I have a friend who is in an unsafe and extremely stressful position at the present, so I’m writing this post on their behalf and hoping that one of my followers can help out.

They’re one of the nicest, most sincere, intelligent, and all around awesome people I know and I would super appreciate it if you could just read this all the way through, and perhaps signal boost it if you can find it in your heart.

I don’t normally ask for things like this, but my friend’s situation is urgent and I need to at least get this out there in hopes of a miracle. Thank you in advance.


To be short: my friend’s living situation is in a very bad place right now and they are desperately in search of a short-term or long-term roommate in the Orlando area in Central Florida. For various reasons related to health, safety, and other personal reasons, my friend is losing their roommate and simply cannot afford to live by themselves for an extended period of time. They are in a specifically tight spot at the moment because they are both agoraphobic and chronically ill, which makes it difficult to hold down a traditional job for very long.

Though they work from home for the income they do earn, it’s often not enough to support themselves fully (especially during the summer when work is MUCH harder to come by) while they are in this transitionary period of their life, balancing work, school, and their illnesses.

My friend desperately needs a stable housemate who can move in ASAP, or at least supplementary finances to tide them over. They do have $1200 saved up to cover one month, but that’s it for now. They will need at least another $1200-$1500 in order to pay for food, living expenses, and medical costs. The situation gets more and more frightening for my friend as time goes on, and it is visibly upsetting their life in various ways. To be frank, I don’t think they can handle this stress much longer.
My friend (and I!) would be forever grateful if anyone would be willing to become a short-term or long-term roommate. If you can’t, please consider also donating to their paypal (which, for safety reasons as well, you will need to message the original poster for) to help them gather funds in the meantime. If you don’t have money, please also consider signal boosting this. I would super appreciate it, my friend would certainly be overjoyed, and you would be doing a great thing!

Thank you so much for reading. It means a lot here to everyone involved.

Here are just a couple extra pics I took while getting WorkspaceWednesday shots.

Saiph is getting along nicely with Altair, the wee-pumpy-kin. Although I don’t think Altair is ready to share her toys yet. :/ With time, I’m sure. lol

Still need to think of a name for my Alaqua doll. She’s chillin’ in her new dress from feralworks. I’ll be getting her some regular feet sometime soon (and maybe other hands), so she can wear other shoes, as well as a new 1/6 outfit.

Okay doll folks, where is the pumpkin-headed doll from? All of these dolls are adorable, but the wee Halloweenie creature is especially so! Eeeeee!

Back in the early 90s, when I was suffering my time in Retail Hell (aka Fred Meyer), Mattel had the idea to send Barbie on tour to various stores for events. I came in on my day off just to get a photo with her. Which was taken immediately after I cheerfully confided, "When I was a little girl, I used to pull your head off!"

Underground  Portraits  of Theater of Darkness  by Lucent Dossier

In collaboration with the the Lucent Dossier underground cirque , photographer August Bradley presents A Theater of Darkness, an enchanting visual narrative filled with curiosity and terror. As if birthed from the pages of an H.G. Wells novel, Bradley’s circus characters are confined to an old, anachronistic vaudeville theater—long after their performances, they lurk in the steampunk underground, yearning for the outside world and hoping for escape.

The things one finds while cleaning and organizing.

 “Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A. A. Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne between 1920 and 1922. Pooh was purchased in London at Harrods for Christopher’s first birthday. Christopher later gave them to publisher E. P. Dutton, who in turn donated them to the New York Public Library.”


Yes, I almost always reblog this photo. It is one of the touchstones of my world. 
This is them, guys. This is them. Got chills.
this makes me want to cry

If one of you could arrange for him to pop ‘round with a pot of tea and some cupcakes, that would be lovely.
(Whooo, bad insomina last night. Staring at photos of Actual Elder Vampire Dave Vanian is about all I’m capable of at the moment.)
