A doodle-based ask blog for the lighter side of the God of Mischief. Ask what you will, and see what answers the Liesmith may have for you.
(I will answer all the asks that I can--there's already more than I can keep up with, so if it takes me a long time to get to yours, I apologize. )
Advice: do not trip on the cultivator. I not only have a gaping ripped hole in one toe, I think I broke it also. Ouch.
You guys I know I have been sucking in activity lately—summer is a really really busy time around here. It’s the only time teachers can get all the house stuff done that we’ve had to let go over the ENTIRE rest of the year.
here is what I did today. Super productive, don’t you think?
OK so you guys—here’s a story. I had finally decided I wanted to save/budget for a Fitbit to help me on my way with keeping track of my fitness goals. I posted about it on FB—you know, as you do—and then my finances blew up. Aside from the $300 miscalculation I made (even the most careful of us sometimes frick things up badly), the sprinkler system went out, Frigga’s car died, and our ENTIRE A/C and furnace system completely died. On top of it, Thor and I had decided it was finally time to do some DIY home renovations, and so we were in the middle of the very long and exhausting job of COMPLETELY stripping and redoing countertops and all the cabinets.
Anyway. Fitbit? Ha. Fond wish. Pipe-dream.
Then, last night—doubtless deposited by an Einstein-Rosen Bridge directly on the front porch, was a small manilla envelope addressed to “Loki, C/O Chazi” There was a little USB dongle taped to the outside, and there was a moment of severe qualms by all here—Loki isn’t exactly universally loved, and we did wonder if maybe this was a bomb from one of the Dökkálfar for a moment. We rallied, however, and opened it.
Inside was the above letter and a pink Fitbit.
I have literally no idea who it came from—but man, I am staggered by the generosity of the people around me.
If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from
