This is my homethread I guess? :D Please note the artful rhyme, pun, AND juxtaposition in the title.  I'm proud of it.  (Well I think juxtaposition is the right word for that. Antonym-ism?)
 
Here I'll be collecting the dumb stuff I don't want to make individual threads for!  But that doesn't mean I won't still be making pointless threads with clickbait titles.  I need some of my dumb stuff to get attention. 
 
I should come up with a cool description of this place.
 
Poppy dwells in an enormous, circular white tent--a yurt, or ger.  It displays intricately patterned trim and a carved-wood door, painted teal, with a lion-headed knocker. Several magpies perch on the roof alongside a much larger, strange-looking bird with its head under its wing.

 

It's spacious and airy inside, with a skylight at the top to let in the sun.  You can see the polished wood latticework holding it all up.  There isn't much furniture besides a couple low tables laden with snacks—instead of seats, it’s mostly piles of gigantic colorful cushions and throws.

 

You're either alarmed or delighted to see several wild animals lounging on the rugs; the largest of which is a huge, sharp-faced yellow-brown mongrel with the wings and hindquarters of a bird, as well as a long train and feathery ruff.  It must be the size of a horse.

 

I’ll admit, I was trying to choose between this, a cute Mediterranean cottage, and a decrepit chicken-legged Baba Yaga hut. Uh, and that’s it for now. Aforementioned dumb posts coming soon.

@Eureka thank you! and yeah a Baba Yaga hut would've been impressive but I wouldn't be able to fit my giant dog-bird-simurgh in it :( and my other forum pets :(

 

And this is pretty random but I feel like you should know that Eureka is one of my unofficial IRL nicknames.  Like it's not even my nickname in a specific group of people, random people I've met thoughout my life always just end up settling on Eureka as a nickname for me because it sounds like my real name which is generally hard to come up with a nickname for ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I need to scream about Train to Busan like I never knew that horror movies could rip out your heart like that hdhdjdjsjjs I haven’t cried that hard at a movie in such a long time

 

Spoilers in white: AGH THE BUFF HUSBAND HE WAS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER HE WAS SO HEROIC BUT HE HAD TO GET EATEN BY ZOMBIES BECAUSE OF THAT AWFUL SELFISH BUSINESS MAN GOD I HATE THAT GUY SO MUCH
HIS POOR WIFE
AND THE POOR OLD LADY AND HER SISTER THAT BROKE MY HEART. THAT’S ALSO YOUR FAULT YOU PINSTRIPED DEVIL
AND THE TEENAGE COUPLE
AND THE MAIN CHARACTER AND HIS DAUGHTER HUAGH (I’ll admit I don’t remember any of the names except Su-An because that was the name getting screamed the most)
Omg and the homeless man my eyes are watering again just thinking about this
EVERYONE DIED EXCEPT FOR THE LITTLE GIRL AND THE PREGNANT WOMAN OF COURSE

You know what I also need to scream about? Soviet era cartoons and the Grammys.  All the Grammy performances were sooooo good but my favorites were Kesha, Logic, and Rihanna.  I almost cried during Kesha’s performance, and Rihanna’s whole thing was gorgeous.  I love her hair.  

 

Anyways Russian cartoons have sentimental value bc was that what I grew up watching even though they were completely unintelligible to me— like the Snow Queen and Cheburashka and Nu Pogodi, but some of them are just BEAUTIFUL animation-wise. By some of them I mean the Soyuzmultfilm versions of The Jungle Book and Rikki Tikki Tavi, the style is so unusual and pretty.  I just got reminded of it because I dug an old CD from the basement and the feels hit me like a truck.

 

(95% of this thread is probably going to be me gushing or complaining about stuff only I care abt) (maybe 5% of it will be interesting) (fooled y’all sorry)

So we got all our exams back today and I was just like.... um I don't want these you can keep them

 

I mean they're decent grades and I'm not failing anything so it's not hopeless, still have this next semester to bring my grades up

 

BUT TWO OF MY TEACHERS READ MY GRADES OUT LOUD WTH

I WAS SO ANNOYED

like you CAN'T DO THAT

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY YO

ugh. I ranted to my sisters afterwards though and I called one of the teachers an idiot (to my SISTERS not to his face obviously) but I felt really bad so I took it back.  He's not an idiot. He just messed up D:<

 

 

I got a haircut.  Went a lot better than last time.  I'm still trying to figure out what haircut I had in sixth grade because people always complimented my on it, one girl even asked to take a picture to show her barber lol.  Nowadays my hair is just.... eh. 

 

 

I also took an art class over the weekend at the museum! Except now I'm doubting whether I needed to do that because I could've just gone into the galleries myself and drawn :/ I drew a statue of Venus.  Apparently my dad posted the drawing to his FB and he got the most likes he's ever gotten eyyyy I guess people are always impressed by kids doing stuff even if it's not that impressive, lol.  The museum is going to open a Klimt + Schiele exhibit soon and I'm SOOOOO excited.  I really want to go with my sister because Schiele's one of her fave artists.  She needs to come home from college >:O

So uh the base of my right thumb (like the big squishy part of your hand) is currently swelled up to half again the size of my other thumb and I’m very worried and low key afraid I’m going to need to chop it off.  My mom always warned me about cracking my knuckles and now my flippancy is coming back to bite me in the..... hand.

I have so much to say but I'm way too lazy to write it all down... sigh

 

I remember when I read the beginning of DoD I was so shook that dragons had pet cats.  Didn't they make a whole point about how the only dragons who kept pets were the RainWings and Smolder? And is the cat HUGE like everything else in Pyrrhia? (compared to the scavengers)

The cat in DoD stressed me out disproportionately, but then again so did everything in DoD. Like I get that maybe the dragonets of destiny were uninformed at the time it was mentioned that pets aren't widespread in dragon communities, which I think was in THK, but I don't think it's too much to ask for cat-related worldbuilding to be kept relatively consistent.

I was reading this article about paranormal experiences and it got me thinking about how my bed sometimes randomly shakes during the night so I asked my friend if her bed ever shakes at night and she said "yeah there's a theory that it's an angel that came to take you to heaven because you died but it was clumsy so it didn't work" and I'm freaked out even though I know it's probably just my heartbeat or something

"Poppy": Still what most man buns look like.
