Ugh, my brother is being a real creep. He’s got such a weird, misogynistic view of women and when we were younger it was cute (“Oh, pretend you have a girlfriend, see how she reacts!” stuff), but now that he’s 28 it’s getting weird. And I can tell he’s joking about it, but the way it comes off is really not joking. And he’s really into asian women, and as a pale, shaved-head white guy, it’s just bizarre and horribly racist. And he’s got very little experience with women so he expects them to be simultaneously virginal and porn-star-ish and a housewife who won’t rip him off like ‘women usually do.’
It’s getting really awkward to be around him, I’m not going to lie.

So, one of the things I want to do before the new year (I have a to-do list for December with 29 things! Yipes! And I’ve already finished like three of them so it started with 32! Yipes yipes yipes!), is change my blog layout and get a new URL. It’s time. I’m eventually going to retire ‘onceuponabetsy’
But seriously, I’m pretty sure the only reason I got onceuponabetsy is because every other damn URL is taken, and most of the time by inactive blogs (don’t get me started on the wretched ‘betsy.tumblr.com’ It’s fucking bullshit and crap pictures from 2007. 2007!! UGH! I still get mad thinking about it).
And like, I don’t want hyphens or a boat-ton of words mushed into one really long URL. I’m perusing various types of ‘—mancy’s (like pyromancy, but obviously I’m not so naive to think that that’s an option). And I don’t want it to be ‘—mancer’ but I may have to settle for that. And I’m also thinking of some great latin words, but nothing is really jumping out at me. I may go back into my Ancient Jewish Magic book and see if any themes give me inspiration, but it’s really looking grim, and I’m so sick of ‘onceuponabetsy’ I’m not going to lie. I’ve had this URL since september 2009! Gah!
TLDR; getting a new URL is hard for a picky girl like me. SEND SUGGESTIONS!
PS: ‘Batraquomancy’ is a form of divination using frogs, newts or toads. It’s one of the three mancy’s that got me started on that theme for a URL change word. The others were ‘oneiromancy’ (divination through dreams) (tumblr url taken) and ‘abacomancy’ (divination on patterns of sand and dust) (tumblr url also taken). Sigh.
I will. There are plenty of blankets I’m snuggling in, don’t worry. AND YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF TOO! YOU DESERVE NICE THINGS AS WELL BECAUSE YOU’RE A NICE LADY.
i know most of you probably have a lot going on right now but look at this baby seal. fucking look at it
Today was seriously the worst day I’ve had in a while. Like, I ain’t even mad because now I’m in my room and I had cookies and can go to sleep, but lordy lou, everything bad happened and it all happened by 11:30 this morning. Like, at 10:40 I was saying “Oh god, this is the worst day you’ve had in a while.” and then it got worse. I won’t go into details, but it involved me driving a car that I don’t know with a baby that would not stop screaming to a place that was only five minutes away but hidden in the depths of Mordor itself with tiny roads and drivers straight from both New York and Italy so it was impossible to find.
I cried… more than a little bit.
And then the place I was going to wasn’t even open today.
And then baby would not go to sleep, so I finally had to just put him in his crib and go downstairs while he screamed at me for a good hour before finally passing out and going to sleep (and then only for 45 minutes).
It was a bad day. I’m just kind of shocked that it even happened.
