I’ve seen my share of “fake geek girl” shaming, and just thought having a Fairy Gamer Momma to come to the rescue would be nice. I know they exist, I’ve met plenty who are amazing and could beat my ass at any version of Mario Kart. Give the Gamer Momma in your life a big hug! :D
I will be this mom.
Today at work, I heard three different people say “my cards are mad at me.” Grr. Just grr. They’re cards. If you think they’re mad at you then they will be. If you don’t want them to work for anyone else but you, then they won’t. You can buy your own deck; it will not bring you…
That’s perfectly acceptable to give a deck as a gift, but it does not have to be that way. Some people are perfectly content to pick their own deck, and sometimes the energy exchange of giving a gift can be wonderful as well.
I was more flustered at how much I hear needless superstition at work. At least once a day I hear “you can’t buy your own deck or it’s bad luck.” I guess I’m cursed 18 times over then! (My boss is at 88 decks) I have plenty of other frustrations, but that’s the itch under my cap.
Stones of the day:
Azurite with Malachite
Aragonite Star Cluster
I will be flooding your dash with pictures of stones today. You have been warned

Bullying. Everyone is now up in arms about it, and they’re doing their best to be rid of it. The truth is: it’s not possible to truly get rid of it. (A large swath of) Preteens and early teens are hateful monsters because of the new hormones being pumped throughout their bodies thanks to puberty. As a victim of bullying throughout my school years, I can honestly say that bullying blows. I can also say that it forced me to cultivate a personality and be more empathetic to my fellow man. I trudged through it, and millions more were just like me. By not teaching our children to be stronger and realize it doesn’t last forever, we’re creating a nation of victims.
Which states have the most people with state pride?
its like the shittier your state is the more pride you have
I have a deep, abiding love for Texas. There are many things wrong with our politicians and state legislature, and I hope to see those things change in my lifetime. In the meantime, I’m a citizen of Texas and those 49 lesser states :p
Today at work, I heard three different people say “my cards are mad at me.” Grr. Just grr. They’re cards. If you think they’re mad at you then they will be. If you don’t want them to work for anyone else but you, then they won’t. You can buy your own deck; it will not bring you bad luck. Stop putting limitations on yourself with baseless superstition, and you’ll have a much easier go at learning tarot.
I hear a hefty portion of this crap pretty frequently. There are things that people say that are so blatantly racist, and I don’t understand how they don’t think think it is. I’m happy to share the information that I know, but there is a line of what is and is not okay to say to someone. When people say, “but you’re so pale?!” I don’t respond with, “you’re Irish? Do you get sun burned watching fireworks at night?!”
