I’m not very good at blogging

It must have been nearly a month since I did this, perhaps because I’ve spent more time either doing house things or fruitlessly trying to gain energy via napping. This past week I had a triple-whammy of pain in the form of a 10/10 migraine complete with vomiting and diarrhoea, a period, and an alarmingly painful cyst caused by an ingrown hair after shaving. It’s just full of the normal oil in a hair follicle but DANG.

I’m sure you don’t need anymore detail than that, but wanting to share my pain, as well as having a sizeable backlog of photos, has finally prompted me to get onto my blog.

A gumbo that Will made for a date, during which we watched the film Cargo on Netflix. It was pretty decent.

I got actual barrette clips and tried doing hair things with them.

From the front. Fringe isn’t long enough to go all the way back yet.

You can also do what’s pretty much a ponytail with one, which saves a lot of wrist action.

Was I drunk when I took this because honestly.

I would be very partial to a real Cockatoo.

Lovely in the night time.

 

Will’s mum gave us an old Ikea Expedit unit because she recently moved house, and we have slowly organised it into something moderately presentable.

Tidying the first aid things made me realise I had a lot of duplicates.

I think about this actually quite often.

I secretly enjoy things like royal weddings, so I watched it on my phone and took screenshots.

Still very hyped about this.

If you make frowny faces about Israel, you need to

And if you still make frowny faces about it after that, you might be beyond help. Clue yourself in.

I’m surprised Equinox is all the way down here though.

Israel voted us 3rd apparently!

Jerusalem is well and truly within Israel. As is everything on the other side of the line, but that’s a story for another day.

People are right to be repulsed by this, but it would have been nice if you also cared beforehand when she was very obviously a fucking Neo-Nazi.

I realised this was probably the most Letti thing I will ever write. I forgot a fish emoji though.

I think I’m officially old because this meme makes absolutely zero sense to me.

 

I tried some more genealogy. I hit a lot of the same brick walls, either because there are simply no traces of someone’s parents, or because records are behind a paywall for being foreign. Perhaps the strangest thing was getting a little further along a streak, and finding out it’s Scottish! Didn’t really expect that. We Bretons often feel that Scotland stole bagpipes from us! Unfortunately there’s another brick wall there, so there’s no way to find out if they got to Scotland from somewhere else (obviously they did since the beginning of human history, but I mean more in terms of the recent past, might they have migrated from elsewhere, so on and so forth). Brick walls everywhere.

But, even with that, I exported this fun chart and annotated it with flags! Including the flag of Letti!

Family tree so far with flags-small

 

Used entire comment characted limit
I actually used up the WHOLE character limit on an Amazon wishlist. Having serious Tomb Raider withdrawals.

 

Rather than going to bed at a sane time, I recently decided to try creating a flag to represent Mizrahi (pan-Asian) Jews as a whole. This is what I came up with. I can’t take credit for that lovely Hamsa, I found it unattributed on Pinterest, but if this flag ever became a thing, it’s the sort of pattern I’d have in there.

Also I uploaded it to a simulator to see what it would look like when flying.

Duh. I feel like I’m the only person in the world who gave no shits about Alexander Rybak’s other song.

 

 

We’re having our main annual barbecue again soon, which is very unsubtly actually for my dog’s birthday. I can’t believe she’s nearly 9! I just wanna chill out and have a good time, celebrate dogs but also not panic about how old my dog is.

Kadek is coming up the day before, so I may have some mishaps to report about hanging up garden lights.

We might soon have a new addition to the family, I’ll see how it goes.
