Dinosaurs and Super Girls

Less of the dinosaurs, more of the supergirls. I have a lot of feelings about comics, ponies, and books. I should draw more dinosaurs, though.

Got a brilliant idea for a knit hoodie once I finish this cardigan.

An Aya hoodie, complete with baggie sleeves (and tight cuffs) and it would just be SO DAMN CUTE.

But first. This cardigan I am making.

WAIT

WHAT

WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN

OH MY GOD 

SPREAD THE WORD

(via stephaniebrownisback)

Sometimes I feel bad that I gave up on Naruto and Bleach five years ago. But I also know that the reason why I stopped was because the plot stagnated and I just didn’t have time to dedicate to anything that wasn’t school in late 2008 and early 2009.

Matt still reads them (out of habit mostly) and every once in a while I have this pang of guilt that I gave up, even though I know it’s pretty mediocre. I feel like part of it is because I gave up the NarutoForums community, and I had some amazing friends back there.

But whatever. Maybe someday I’ll read them both from beginning to end and regret that neither of them ended about a third of the way through.

They were cute when I saw them in a store last week and as it turns out they’re ON SALE so I bought them. I’m hoping they’ll look beautiful with my fancy dress and I can wear them to a bar mitzvah and a wedding. It would solve all of my shoe problems.

Now to wait and hope that they fit me properly, haha.

PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!

IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.

Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.

If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
  • Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
  • Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
  • If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
  • See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!

Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.

Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.

Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.

If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

OH MY FUCK I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.

I found out this past week that these are in my yard. It’s not just me being a terrible gardener! My plants all died because this stuff killed them.

It’s so weird that when I started posting on this blog I was wowed if one of my drawings got like, seven notes in several months, and now, even on my much younger art blog, I see 40 notes in a week on a drawing of something pretty obscure (like Eleanor of Aquitaine and Marie Antoinette) and I just nod in approval like that’s perfectly normal.

I’m still surprised and flattered, because I draw things mostly for myself, so other people’s feedback and interest makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but it doesn’t flabbergast me like it used to.

What I’m trying to say is that all of you people are great, and I love that what I do makes you guys happy too. Thanks for sticking around, and thanks for sharing my work :)

I stayed late at work today (half an hour) because one of our parents was caught in horrible traffic coming from London on the M4 (he works at Heathrow and the M25 had a horrible accident that closed it on and off all day).

So now that half hour will get added onto the…12 hours of time owed back to me (lolololololol).

Maybe I’ll take some of that time back tomorrow.

If I can.

Uuuugh.

(lololol i never get to take my toil back because everyone else is always taking theirs AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA)

Have a sammich Briget! :)

I did! I had a nutella and peanut butter sandwich and crisps and a tea.

It was delicious and nutritious enough, haha.

Because three weeks from today I will be in America, hanging out with my family in some form or another (the details of who is picking us up is still in the air), and I will be celebrating my littlest little brother’s bar mitzvah with his family (and doing a reading? I CAN’T BELIEVE HE WANTS ME TO DO A READING. I’M GOING TO BE GROSS SOBBING THE WHOLE TIME.) and then at the end of my trip I get to celebrate my little sister’s birthday.

And inbetween will just be so much hanging out with people and finding people who have time to see us and just generally enjoying some time off and going through boxes at my parents’ house.

It’s going to be amazing and I’m so excited.

It is a terrible idea to leave me to my own devices when it comes to dinner.

Last time it happened, I forgot to eat until about 10:00, and when I stood up I was actually dizzy with hunger. WHOOPS.

I am a terrible role model.
