My Jacket Says Hi

Hello. I am Avni. Sometimes I do stuff.

edwardspoonhands:

I can confirm that I’ve said this word.

I don’t understand the confusion. (I’m guessing it’s over the amount of apostrophes but if y’all know what this word means, it kinda makes sense. Or I guess y’all live in areas where people just don’t say anything that sounds like this.) This is probably something I’ve said before, though I’ll admit I’ve never typed it out. Y’all’d’ve is a contraction of y’all and would’ve. The way I and others that I know pronounce the word “y’all’d’ve” is:"y’all" + "d’ve" (from the word "would’ve)Now if everyone reblogging this is just mocking people who don’t talk like themselves, I’mma have to tell y’all to get over your linguistic prejudices. English is a language spoken by so many people and if the idea of people using a plural second person pronoun or contractions is worthy of mocking then I don’t know what to say.

It’s time to start planning for the holidays already!

Our hope is to collect some really good tasty treats, toys and squishy beds for homeless cats in shelters this holiday season! From now until December, we will be collecting items to mail to non-profit shelters so that homeless kitties can have the best holiday ever! Having comforting items while in a shelter can make a huge difference in the life of a homeless animal. A shelter’s main priority is keeping the cats healthy, so a shelter cat getting something special is really rare!

We have an Amazon Wishlist if you would like to pick out an item for a shelter kitty! We will also donate money to the shelters we mail gift boxes to! And we will throw in some of our handmade cat toys and plushes!

The number of places we will donate to will depend on how many gifts we can gather. The locations are also TBD, but you can always recommend places by contacting us admin@thetinytabby.com <3

Looking for gifts for your human companions? Our store donates half of each purchase to cat shelters and rescue groups. Thank you for your support, and remember to support your local shelters!!

Morning Reblog! Thank you SO SO MUCH to the awesome people that bought some things off of our list already!

I have donated toys to shelters before, and they thanked me so much because at that time the kitties has ZERO toys! It was so sad! I hope this idea turns out to be a success :)

Check out the list here.   <3

WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
A full list can be found here, another cosmetic-specific one here.
Here’s some articles on the subject:

http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/700482/ARACHIS_HYPOGAEA_(PEANUT)_OIL/
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!

YES THIS IS ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT

Since I haven’t seen any posts about it on Tumblr, I figured I’d make the post myself! #heardwhilstdisabled is a trending hashtag on twitter, has been on-and-off for awhile obviously, and it’s about the common, casual microagressions the disabled of all stripes have to deal with. It’s UK- and AU-based primarily from the looks of it but I would think it applies to most disabled people - I certainly know I’ve heard my share of this kind of ableism. Here’s more tweets (source is The Indepedant):

I don’t care what kind of blog I have I will blog this no matter what.

"Craving sensation: feeling unreal" was such a huge part of the beginning of my relapse. I was convinced that people in front of me didn’t even exist and I kept touching things and trying to feel sensation. I’m reblogging because I know that that was so horrifying for me and I never want anyone else to go through it. 

Just in case this can help someone. Some suggestions also seem harmful (eating a hot pepper really hurts!!!) but steps to feeling better and not self harming is most important. Sending you love and light

STOP SCROLLING! Please reblog this vitally important information because at least one of your followers is self-harming. Thank you!

jugzdaclown asked: Sorry for all the random questions,lol. I like reading your responses! Anyway, if all the mbti types were on a reality show like Survivor, how would they all act?

I’ve never even seen this show, know almost nothing about it, and don’t want to, so for the sake of argument, this is an island setting.

ENTJ: starts bossing everyone around and coming up with a long term plan on how to win the game while crushing the opposition into sludge, but accidentally gives away the entire plan due to talking so much.

INTJ: is the creepy loner who sits around coming up with a plan that he waits to implement until the last minute, when he is sure that it will work, thus winning the game… unless one of the ESTPs drops a kumquat on his head first, which is always likely.

ESTJ: is just as bossy as the ENTJ, but also pathologically afraid of deviating from plans that have worked in the past, which means that the ENTJ already knows everything the ESTJ is going to do, thus ruining any chance of success.

ISTJ: points out all the logical flaws in everyone else’s plan by referencing details from the 10,000 episodes of the show that they have watched, but shies away from leadership when it is offered to them.

ENTP: doesn’t mind being the boss but has to make sure everyone is okay with whatever he decides, plus he has a hard time making up his mind as to what to do. On the up side, he doesn’t have any kind of plan, so nothing really shocks him.

INTP: sizes up the competition, finds the other smart one, and together build some sort of electronic thing out of coconut rinds and bits of fishing line, which they then use to contact the mainland or at least watch old reruns of Gilligan’s Island.

ESTP: leaps into everything without looking first, but somehow always manages not to get himself killed, to get the fire started, to catch fish and generally piss everyone else off by being so successful despite having absolutely no idea what he is doing.

ISTP: does the same sorts of reckless things as the ESTP, but he stops to think about whether or not it could get him killed first.

ENFJ: visualizes some immense plan that involves winning the game, and has a suspicious amount of insight into other team members, so she knows which buttons to push that cause them to get kicked off the island or whatever. Shame about the fire ants.

INFJ: needs time to decide what he’s going to do before he does it, but then rarely fails at thinking his way out of bad situations, even though whenever he acts impulsively, he tends to trip over things.

ESFJ: is attentive both to everyone’s well being and the details involved in their plans, which often is derived from their own experience in Vietnam, the baking industry, or Chihuahua ownership.

ISFJ: fiercely protects their family members and avoids making everyone else’s mistakes because they actually pay attention to what is happening around them rather than staring off vacantly into space.

ENFP: has fun no matter what she is doing, even though she flies by the seat of her pants. She can still organize other people and rally them to victory with inspiring speeches, though.

INFP: stubbornly refuses to do anything he doesn’t want to do or that violates his code of honor (like, not stealing baby turtles for food) but is very creative in seeing patterns and possibilities… in fact, so good at it that the others use him for ideas and give him food in exchange.

ESFP: is somewhat reckless and opportunistic, and just as good at doing everything as the ESTP, but with less fanfare and more crafty determination. Rather inclined to shut people out who give them crap, though, and not always rational in their decisions.

ISFP: sets their own way in life, stubbornly refusing to budge on important issues, and is a little more inclined to develop a long-term plan than the ESFP, but less able to leap on immediate changes as they emerge.

No, I will not do more of these.
