@Prawnlegs Just following up my hit from college, "what's a quizno?"
@onehauntedhouse @magpietongue @Prawnlegs whaat that's wild! I remember spending SO MANY hours paging through elfwood methodically. We had just recently gotten the internet and deviantart didn't really exist yet, so I was in awe that so much good ("good") art was there. Being 12/13 on the old internet was fun, I miss that.
@JMHowell hanging out with you is always fun and chill! I hope we can have more adventures together soon!!

I'm going home tomorrow because my 19-year-old family cat has to be put to sleep
we got her when I was 13! I thought I was going to be okay because she's been old and sickly for quite a while so I knew it was coming, plus I haven't lived at home in over 10 years (except I guess for a big chunk of 2017). but no, it turns out it's still really upsetting when your buddy who's been in your life since you were 13 has to go!
I'm gonna be okay, I just wish pets didn't have to be sick or die
teeth are horrifying
@hauntedsuburbs oh no, that sucks! I hope your benefits help you out a bit with the cost, yikes. I'm afraid of the same thing happening to me because I've never had wisdom teeth removed either. Good luck!!
@yookalelee that's a really good look though!!
@kaible I was thinking of the video of the guy who reaches into the earth and pulls out a mole, and I was like "if he can do that, I can just tenderly touch the mole!"
oh yeah, yesterday I heard rustling under some plants and wanted to see what it was so I got closer and a MOLE came out
it saw me and froze in fear, so I did the only logical thing, which was to reach down and pet it ever so gently with one finger
the mole peed
I am a monster
(it was very soft)
@DirkGrundy I had never seen a picture of him before, so I absolutely lost it when I googled him after reading this
@yeshomo thank you!!!
@yookalelee this is so cute, I'm glad you have a high-quality dad!

@yeshomo aw thanks haha, I can't claim wisdom yet though, just booksmarts. Native plants have been my special interest for the past couple years now so I've read a bunch. I recommend Bringing Nature Home by Douglass Tallamy if you ever want a good book about the importance of native plants!
@JMHowell oh my gosh, every time you post your dinner pics and descriptions I'm filled with envy!! It looks so good

@cryptovexillologist ahaha yeah, I'm sure there's a large overlap in the communities that use those terms too

Anyway, ecology is science, permaculture is not. I do think permaculture has a lot of good ideas and is way better than conventional agriculture, but don't leave behind critical thinking. For instance, there is absolutely no science behind the popular idea of dynamic accumulator plants. And many of the commonly recommended plants could be replaced with native species for some actual, valuable biodiversity! Please oh please do what you can to support the insects

I'm currently reading a book where the guy spent 2 pages on a hippie bullshit diatribe against native plant proponents because "native" is hard to define, and therefore... doesn't mean anything, and we shouldn't try to fight invasive species something something plant synergy?? Plant apples and tomatoes and lettuce all you like, just please also plant native species alongside and for the love of god don't plant invasives bc they're ~medicinal~ or whatever
