So I got through Thanksgiving.

So I got through Thanksgiving.

I dressed to the nines ‘cos I can’t deal with parties or people  if I don’t. (I have a sterling silver ivy leaf crown that cost me half a month’s rent. It was worth every penny – I get to look like some chronically messed-up Pre-Raphaelite elf…) 

Didn’t eat – bit of a mistake. Cooked and chatted and was social whilst main-lining coffee, ‘cos – tired. But eventually it got too much and I went outside to hide and cry. 

The UK doesn’t have Thanksgiving; historically, it was never a thing that happened to us, so no, no holiday. (Many Americans seem very confused by this and I don’t know why?) 

But the inaccuracy apparently didn’t matter. It was a foreign holiday my family has never celebrated, yeah, but it was somehow like the ghosts of Christmas past: the first big festive family gathering without either of my parents. 

And it hurt – very inconveniently – like someone trying to tear out my sternum when I’d still like to breathe. But I managed to hide and didn’t have an utter breakdown or stab myself and I returned to the party and somehow made small-talk so that counts as a definite win.

(I’m tired. I hope your holidays or non holidays didn’t leave you as tired. And I hope you got to talk to those you wanted to talk to – and avoided those you needed to.)

So this is a Witchy/GoodOmens thing. 

It’s a tattoo I designed and am gonna get. (Please don’t steal it – do your own thing – or commission me if you like. I’m good at tattoos.) 

It’s gonna go on my right forearm over a lot of scars mostly because there’s no design that can ever sit on the utter bastard bloody wreck that is my left arm. But that’s okay.

This is not anything to do with necromancy or ghosts or spirits or witchcraft really. Sorry. I just had to post things so I wouldn’t… well, just so I wouldn’t. 

Full points to anyone who can translate the writing or knows the stars!
