If I have to see one more condescending post on Nextdoor mentioning Anne Frank, I’m going to find the person and throw books at them. People cope with things differently, Karen, just because you’re old and have no interest in doing anything beyond sitting in a chair and reminiscing about “the good old days” doesn’t mean that’s what all of us are like.
FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD
I’ve spent a worrying about of time today looking at the Slimming Hurled group on facebook, which takes the food people proudly show off on those slimming groups despite the fact that they look like literal warzones.
This looks like a before picture, as in before cooking, but no, that’s some raw leaves, raw cucumber and raw mushrooms with no seasonings or anything to prevent major dryness, and a pitta bread cut in half. YUM.
Individually these things might be nice. Add them all together and… what. Also I dislike the use of “fakeaway” here, as in “just like a takeaway meal, but healthy!” because honestly, if I ordered a meal from a takeaway and it arrived like this, I’d be taking pictures of it, sure, but only so I could @ them on Twitter and go “what the fuck is this monstrosity?!”
Also, isn’t an aspect of dieting about portion control? Like, I get that these foods, according to the Weight Watchers or Slimming World rules, whichever, have zero “syns” but that doesn’t mean you can eat INFINITE AMOUNTS of them, they still have calories and fat and whatnot to burn off.
THAT IS NOT A CHEESECAKE. THAT IS CEREAL WITH SOFT CHEESE ON TOP. WHAT THE FUCK.
what. the. actual. You know what, I will swipe, I’ll swipe this “kebab” off the counter and into the fucking bin, what were you THINKING?!
WE SHARE OUR PAIN, SO WE MAY BECOME STRONGER
Look, if I have to countenance this stuff, I’m taking you with me. Misery loves company after all.
FIRE EMBLEM: THREE HOUSES
This game has been out literal months so beware spoilers here I guess.
I’m plodding through the game happily, it’s very good! I’m the professor of the Golden Deer house, I’ve finally got Byleth into the Swordmaster class (33% chance of success in the exam because I only have B+ in swords trololol), and I’ve got a fairly crit-heavy playstyle going on with him. Killing Edge+, Critical Ring, high STR and DEX, Sword Crit +10 all add up to him doing this a lot:
I’ve also got Claude as a sniper (level 26), Lorenz as a paladin (level 23 and dealing out SERIOUS hurt), Raphael as a grappler (level 22 and dodging everything thrown at him!) and Lysithea as a warlock (level 24, learning faith skills too) as the core of my party, and I generally bring Marianne as a healer, Hilda as a dancer (extra turns!) and then whoever I feel like building support with.
Trying to get cool characters to join my house too, so far I have Dorothea and Linhardt, working on Ashe too. I don’t know who I’m going to aim for an S support rank with yet, I see there’s a few dudes I can do it with! How exciting! I doubt there’s going to be children from the future running around the place though like in Awakening, doesn’t seem like the story’s going in that direction.
Also Byleth’s dad was just killed, so I’m anticipating a roaring rampage of revenge soon. Monica’ll be seeing that critical cut-in soon enough!
