How the hell…
I will admit that I bought at least 57 of them in advance of the Carnivale cause someone was selling them on the AH for really cheap and I have plans that require LOTS of sprockets. Most of them came from gathering, coli grinding, and spending a gem or two more in the AH to bring the number at the end of the day closer to the 99 stack limit.

Yeah, buying in advance helps. I did that with the glowing embers for Flameforger’s Festival. 

Yeah, it really did. I’ve still got grinding tonight, more buying, and then tomorrow the same with gathering and I’ll be buying as much of each holiday item as I can. I might go ahead and buy the ones I want for myself before getting the copies to sell.

  • Computer tracking number should be emailed to me this week or next so I’ll be getting my laptop at least the WEEK before school.
  • I’ve applied to two jobs, and one is a guaranteed interview for a position in one of at least four different restaurants in the casino. I just got off the phone with the recruitment manager, and she said everyone is still waiting on a word from the higher-ups about interview dates.
  • I’m applying for another Choctaw help program that’ll provide me with a stipend every week to help me with school, and all I need now to turn it in is a copy of my SS and my school schedule and a letter from my adviser.

Everything right now is actually going really great. It feels like things are finally coming together for me, and I couldn’t be happier

Reasons why my dad is awesome

  1. We quote The Fifth Element to each other, mostly ‘Aziz light!’ when we want the light in a room turned on or off
  2. He gives me my space when he knows I’m upset with nothing more than a pat to my shoulder to let me know he understands
  3. He stands up for me against my mother cause he knows I can’t right now (I still have to live here)
  4. Nearly everytime we go to the store together, we get a treat. Sometimes a King Size Reese’s to share, but a lot of the times we get a little cake to split or two of our own c:

This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.

Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.

Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.

If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”

That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me

I don’t know where you get your sources but cats were not fucking “guardians of the underworld”; this movie is based on EGYPT, cats were common domestic pets by the time Egypt unified, and they were representations of the goddess Bastet, ex goddess of warfare (formerly asociated with a lioness ), post-unification protector goddess. Cats were guardians of houses because they embodied the representation of Bastet, the “EYE of Ra”, the one that tells ra whatever happens. If a cat saw an evil spirit, it would tell Ra, and Ra would smite down the fucker in an instant. Bastet was also feared by evil spirits because she was the only one to be able to harm the evil snake Apep and save Ra’s ass, so you bet someone that escaped Anubis’ judgement and Osiris’ preservation would do well to fear Bastet out of fear of being caught by said gods.
They were seen as this as well because they disposed of rats and snakes (perhaps an egyptian once saw a cat killing a snake and went "OH BAST JUST KILLED APEP" and that’s how the mythos started), so they were useful animals to keep as pets, revered, adored, mourned when they died, and if you killed one you received death penalty.

The only animal seen as a “guardian of the underworld” were jackals, because they embodied Anubis and were seen near tombs, but that’s because they entered said tombs to try and eat the corpses and the egyptians based their entire Anubis lore on them.

So yeah, if you were an evil emperor that escaped the process of the gods you once worshipped, unleashed curses around the world disrespecting your own pantheon, and you came across an avatar of the goddess of Warfare that could also call upon Ra to pulverize you with sunlight, and have your soul sundered by Osiris and weighted by Anubis to go to your rightful place as someone who perished AGES ago, you would shit on your pants as well.
