I peed on my Dad’s pillow.
WHILE HE WAS SLEEPING ON IT!!!
a little love story about mermaids and tattoos
Friend of mine
“I play in rock bands and I teach music at a high school, but it’s summer now so I’m not teaching. It’s really hard for me to relax and unwind because I normally work seven days a week. I’m used to schedules: these are my fifteen minutes to relax, etc. Now that it’s summer, I work on weekends at a shoe store. I have five days off—I don’t have to go to work until Saturday. For most people that’s probably the most freeing thing about summer, but I feel suffocated by all that free time. I can’t wake up Monday morning and say, ‘Oh, great, I’ll go back to sleep.’ I feel anxious, like I’m going to have a panic attack. I feel like I have to do something great with the day because it’s so precious. So I filled my free time with things that were stressful.
During the summers in past years, I would commit to every musical thing possible that I couldn’t commit to during the school year. I would agree to take part in projects, compose things, and do a million other stressful tasks. It was a mess. I’ve been getting better recently, though it’s still hard. Over the last year, I’ve started to realize that I can find ways to relax, though it’s taken the better part of my adult life to realize that. Now I sew, craft, and even make my own clothes sometimes. I’ve also learned that I really enjoy a glass of wine, a good book, and spending time with my friends.”
Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?
1899 account of a “lady cyclist” who “used her fists in scientific fashion” on her harasser. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BsQi252CIAAwvUJ.jpg
Noted for her athletic powers.
Real Fiji mermaid. Caught alive by fisherman in the Koro Sea. Though it remained alive for only three days in captivity, it’s discovery put to rest years of speculation as to it’s existence.
Oh good, we can finally confirm the existence of real mermaids. And it’s even for sale at a craft site!
Wow, this one looks really real
In case anyone was wondering how this hoax is perpetrated, it’s just the corpse of a monkey sewn to a fish. PT Barnum had the first incarnation in his side shows. (x)
Mermaid photo that didn’t make the cut for Mermaids of Color, but was too amazing to not share. Lesbian mermaid threesome!
