If you're reading this, it means I've managed to make my blog sort of work. I ran out of space on my .com WordPress and so have decided to try self-hosting with the .org version. In short, it has been a nightmare. You'd think that exporting XML files from one site and uploading them to another site, would … Continue reading I never imagined I’d get Botox at age 28
Although I haven't had my snail Jupiter for very long, I've just put together his big tank for him to grow into, so I'm doing a post about that in case anyone else finds it helpful. Because I went out to a physical shop, I was able to compare tubs and get the one I … Continue reading Setting up a tank for a Giant African Land Snail
There are an entire 69 photos uploaded to this post so far and I might remember some more because apparently I take photos of a lot of crap. Here's some stuff from the last month. https://twitter.com/LettiHellequin/status/1023478798346584064 https://twitter.com/ynkutner/status/1021687643996860416 https://twitter.com/ynkutner/status/1021493860101509123 https://twitter.com/erliche_yid/status/1020032490591932416 https://twitter.com/skjask/status/1019989639011225600 https://twitter.com/ThisOngoingWar/status/1023608829391646725 https://twitter.com/WarpedMirrorPMB/status/1024450533019463680 https://twitter.com/Israellycool/status/1024525863306620929 https://twitter.com/IDFSpokesperson/status/1022203708661280773 https://twitter.com/GnasherJew/status/1023278192591876098 https://www.facebook.com/StandWithUs/videos/10155840737047689/ TL;DR it … Continue reading My July
via 19 Things Before 2019 "19 Things Before 2019" is one of my most visited posts by people coming from Google or other searches. I see its name so often in my stats and I realised I should really reflect on the things I aimed to do, because it's apparent that I'm really not going … Continue reading Reflecting on my 19 Things Before 2019 | 20 in 2020?
You may remember that nearly a year ago now I listed my casting ideas for Tomb Raider. I've been watching lots of Resident Evil (a.k.a. Biohazard, バイオハザード) longplays recently to get my nostalgia fix. These got me thinking about how, as with Tomb Raider, I'd love for a movie loyal to the 1990s games to … Continue reading Fantasy casting: Biohazard/ Resident Evil
It's been almost 3 weeks now since we brought home our GALS. It's a slightly long story as to how we ended up with him so I'm gonna skip that. I might do a post about caring for Giant African Land Snails when I've had him for longer. It would be silly to do one … Continue reading More about our Giant Land Snail
I know what you're thinking. "Letti, why are you still on this?" or at least "Why are you designing an arrangement for a plot of land when you haven't even bought one?" and you would certainly have a point. But apparently I've gone a bit mad, so I've gone and done it anyway. The house … Continue reading A plot plan
Even though I know I don't prefer the alternatives to our house plan, I keep making them anyway. Here's another bungalow experiment because I've gone mad. Again, I don't prefer it to our 2-storey plan, but if we were sold on single-storey living by then, I guess this layout makes slightly more sense … Continue reading I’ve done it again
We've been sleeping downstairs recently because the heat has been absolutely unbearable. Warm air rises, of course, and so getting upstairs to bed at the end of a long hot day was like stepping into a furnace. After one especially unbearable night (even for Will, who does not have POTS) we brought our mattress downstairs … Continue reading The Bungalow Experiment
Just a quick post to tell you about our new baby! He's a Giant Land Snail although is currently not very giant because he's still a baby. I am alarmingly emotional about him. We named him Jupiter (or Joop-Joop casually) because his shell looks a bit like the surface of the planet, Jupiter! At the … Continue reading Giant Land Snail!
