reminds me of this kid who used the teacher's pencils to clean her toenails in 4th grade. i always brought my own pencils EVERYWHERE after witnessing that. still can't get that image out of my head 20 years later. ew.

In fact, I do spend some time every day giving the parents of a 50 year old coworker D-grades in my head, because to this day, this fucker hasn't learned any eating manners and it's driving me nuts.

when I watch the food falling out of his face, directly across from me, I imagine him being 6 years old and shoving his face to the plate until he learns to god damn keep the food in his mouth. now that's a statement. I believe in punishment. it's for the greater good, for the annoyance level of everyone who will ever eat close to this person.
Yeah, table manners are very important to me. My youngest is always hungry, because of his epilepsy medication, and if he has poor self control on any given night, he will SCRAPE HIS METAL SPOON OR FORK ACROSS THE CERAMIC PLATE ARRGGGHHHH just to get the last few bits of food.

I'm such a bitch mom that I don't even say anything any more, just his name. Then he freezes and looks up at me and sees me glaring at him, and apologises.

Just. No.

My older son eats pastries like a fucking squirrel, oh man it drives me mental. He just loves pastries so much and we so rarely buy them (especially in Singapore), he will break off little bits with his fingertips and then nibble those little bits. Crumbs fucking everywhere, his chin, his hands, the plate, the table, the floor. It is horrendous. He looks especially 'special needs adult' on those occasions. I have hissed many an under the breath tirade at him in cafes, about his eating habits.

I am hopeful that by they time they are independent adults, they will just eat normally, no nibbling, no scraping, no eating off knives

This is.....WTF. Was this in Berlin?

I think she would have been arrested and caned for doing that, here...

nah Belfast, not Berlin, but I've seen someone shaving their head hair off in public transport in Berlin, so you know. in that guy's "defense", he might have been on crack or something like that, but this pedicure woman appeared 100% sober. I watched her nails taking on paint for 10 minutes straight, and she didn't mess it up once, not even a dot of paint. impressive!

i think the kids' horrendous table manners will improve with age, vix. i used to rip up sandwiches and refuse to let different foods come into contact with each other and eat candy bars in a similarly squirrely way but i stopped doing all that by my early teens. if one of their peers draws attention to it, it will change immediately, but otherwise it's just part of being a weirdo kid and will normalize.

It's like a dream, bro. City of David fucking pwns. What an awesome place.

And you better believe I am going to a service in the Holy Sepulchre.

Also I got food poisoning from my first falafel feast, from some ritzy place on Mamila. Spent all night puking and pooping. Now I have to sweep and clean and shop... sigh.

I went to an Israeli restaurant the other night and when I first walked in the AC was out so it was hot as shit and I could smell falafel and za'atar and shwarma and also there was no line, just a rush of people at the counter, and I had a serious poignant flashback/was triggered as fuck by all the crazy shit that happened when I was there

it was a moment. enjoy jerusalem

I took a voluntary day off which now I'm home feeling guilty about but I also have 2 months of rent already banked and then some thanks to me living incredibly modestly, I'm talking spending no more than $750 a month rent and utilities included

at one point i was working two part time jobs and in school 18 hours. i think you get through it by realizing it's a sacrifice and not forever- so take the goal seriously and do your best.

i've saved money this month by committing to buying no textiles or wearables. this includes clothing, shoes, underwear, earrings, hair clips, etc. my bank account looks in better shape than it usually does this time of the month. i really should do this more often.
