i really wanted to draft and sew something, but that doesn't make sense until i reach my goal weight, so i made a cloak, which depends only on measurements that don't change with weight

maybe autumn will be marginally more bearable with this? nah, let's not fool ourselves, it's still a fucking mistake of a season.

clearly i was on the right track when i cited an XKCD strip as a source in one of our project documentations just to see whether the trainer would notice. (i don't think he did.)

you just had to start work in the attic the moment i decided to lie down for a bit? the attic that was already considered too structurally unstable for regular use when my parents moved in over 30 years ago, and that sure sounds that way whenever someone goes up there?

hey, first time i've been able to look in the mirror and actually see a difference! my arms can hang straight down again, they don't get pushed out by fat deposits anymore! the sleeve hems on my girly cut t-shirts appear horizontal! those same sleeve hems fit slightly loosely and don't try to creep up into my armpits anymore!

also i get to go around proclaiming that i've lost 20% of my body and that's hilarious.

really stupid idea that actually works: use an interdental brush to apply cake mascara. i mean hey, it's basically a tiny spoolie brush.

the cake mascara works surprisingly well too, considering it's a recreation of the earliest form of mascara and therefore literally just plain soap and umber pigment. take into account though that i don't like the LONGER! THICKER! DENSER! BLACKER!! efforts of the typical modern mascara. i just want to colour my lashes so they're not lighter at the tips and i think black mascara looks horrible on people with blond hair. meaning that i've literally never used a mascara that didn't meet my standards.

i'd still prefer it if i could find the kind of brush that used to be sold with cake mascara, though. that one 1930s compact/vanity case i own is missing one. it's a really cool compact, when it's complete it contains powder, rouge, cake mascara, an eyeliner pencil (i assume so anyway, it wouldn't be an eyebrow pencil because women back then generally used mascara on their eyebrows and lipliner pencils weren't a thing yet), lipstick (in a pan so you have to apply it with your finger, not as an actual stick) and eyeshadow, all in a case the size of a credit card. i had to have one the moment i learned they existed, and was really glad to get mine cheaply because of a few flaws.

my skin's reached the point where it looks better and not worse with foundation, woo! just two scabbed-over former pimples left, and one's on the bottom of my chin. pretty much a fact at this point that my skin problems were ultimately caused by being fat (presumably because it messed up my hormone levels) and couldn't have been fixed by anything other than becoming less fat

have to say, the effort of keeping that noise diary was absolutely worth it. there wasn't a single noisy night during the summer holidays, and also none since they've ended. looks like the golden era of late night gaming sessions is over, kids! and i can only imagine how much they were looking forward to spending their entire summer holidays during that. and then they didn't get to do it at all. such sweet revenge for the months (and really years, though not all of it the same intensity) of self-centered bullshit that i had to put up with.

(but man, did i tell the story of how i specifically worded the noise diary in such a way that it didn't become obvious the problem was caused by children, and also worded the actual complaint that way, because i knew that if the person who read it saw the word "children" they'd just go "can't get in trouble for noise caused by children anyway" and throw out the complaint without further action - and then my father reworded the complaint to specify that the noise was caused by children, because of some ridiculous notion that not saying so would be lying, and guess what happened? i fucking told you so. it didn't exactly take a genius to predict that! predictably, the letter had absolutely no effect, i was subjected to two more weeks of noise, it didn't stop until he called them and explained the situation and emailed them another copy of the noise diary. i hope he felt as stupid as his actions were.)

i swear, pinterest is great for when you just want to look at random pictures, but it's a fucking plague when you're trying to google image search something specific. oh, you're interested in that image? too fucking bad, the link won't even take you to the pin of the image itself, it'll take you to an album that happens to contain the pin somewhere in its deepest depths! google image search is now basically useless if you don't tack "-pinterest" on your query. thanks a fucking lot, pinterest. even tumblr generally has the decency to prevent that from happening.

(trying to re-find an image of a carpet bag that had the straps that serve as the closure arranged in such a way that they could hold a parasol or umbrella. hahaha good fucking luck, self.)

the mouse who had the huge abcess (that i originally thought was a tumour) is alright again! there's only a small fold of loose skin above her right eye now. which isn't really surprising, considering the abcess was almost as large as her head.

i showed this picture to the vet and she remarked on what a huge cob of corn that is. no, it's a regular-sized cob of corn and a regular-sized mouse. they just are that tiny.

"i wish [thing] was acceptable for women to do"

so just fucking do [thing] anyway, who cares what people will think! nevermind that [thing] will never come to be considered acceptable for women if all of them just keep avoiding it for fear of making people uncomfortable. you don't change social norms by asking nicely! human beings are creatures of habit, we don't like change and will never make an effort to change anything if we can avoid it, there doesn't even have to be malicious intent behind it...

gradually lower own caffeine consumption (and therefore tolerance), consume way more caffeine in one day than you're used to anymore without really thinking about it, regret everything. especially considering i already didn't sleep much laste night (hoped to reset my sleep pattern, so much for that). every muscle in my body hurts! i just want to fall asleep so that goes away!

yes self, caffeine is a stimulant. it can keep you from falling asleep if you consume more of it than you're used to. that's why humans like it so much in the first place
