I recently decided to try to crochet again and I actually got it down finally. I can make blankets, scarves, and hats fairly well now.
Well last week I started bringing some yarn to work so I could crochet on my breaks. Several of my coworkers were interested in it and a few had me show them the basics.
Tonight we all got together in the office once we had clocked out and spent an hour and a half working (and learning) how to do hats. One of my managers even brought his wife. As we were leaving a few others said they wanted to join in too.
So yeah, pretty sure we just made a club at work. It’s pretty fucking awesome. I hope we can do it again next week~
In the wake of a shitty week filled with panic attack after panic attack, today was pretty nice. It was free comic book day at an amazing comic shop I found a couple weeks ago. It was the first time I had ever been to such an event and I was so excited!
Along with a free ‘Lil Gotham I picked up a couple free comics with interesting titles and/or art that I’d never even heard of before and dug through some bins and took home a few Robin issues as well. I also got a sweet Jamie Reyes figurine for cheap~
There were also some local artists there for the event, but there were a lot of people around them and I was too shy to look at their art or ask their prices.
And then, as I was checking out, another guy was bagging my comics and after a few I heard him mumble ‘Ugh Tim Drake’. I whipped my head around so fast. How dare he diss on Tim?! He said Tim was the absolute worst Robin. And I nearly hit him for that. His favorite was Jason, and though I adore Jason, he was not the best Robin. The Shop keeper put us both down by throwing in Dick.
So YAY! Free comic book day was awesome! Also, finding an awesome comic shop near me! I was starting to think one didn’t exist.
So I’m finally living on my own.
cecil having tattoos all over that move and morph, but only sometimes
like when he’s shy around carlos they try to ‘hide’ under his clothes
and carlos takes cecil’s hand and rubs his thumb over the receding ink on cecil’s wrist and goes, “hey, it’s okay, it’s just me” and cecil goes, “yes, that’s the point”
but his tattoos start unfurling down his arms again and converging on carlos’ fingers where he’s holding cecil’s hand, and carlos jokes, “it’s like they’re trying to eat me alive” and does the thing where he tiptoe-walks his fingers up cecil’s arm and watches the tattoos settle into their proper places like he put them back
and cecil’s like, “no, they like you”
“does that mean you like me? or are they sentient?”
“well, of course i like you. but they’re sort of… attuned to me and my emotional state”
“yeah, i saw that. i’ve never seen shy tattoos before”
“they don’t let everyone move them around, you know” and carlos is just absurdly touched
