Because of course Lars and Eliza are allies. They love pretty much everybody, and want them to know that they’re always there for them, no matter what. Which Dot, being asexual, appreciates.
It’s been a while since we’ve a walrus study.
But hey! Looks like our walrus friend and his red panda sidekick have graduated! From now on, they are proud alumni of Miss Petra’s School for Tea Parties and Fun.
It’s a very exclusive school – only the best get in.
It’s been a bit rough, though, considering they’ve had to have virtual classes for the past couple of months, which really isn’t the same. Hard to hold tea parties over video chat. But they did it!
It certainly has been a time now, hasn’t it.
We’ve gone from the brink of WWIII (January) and Australia being on fire (February) to being in the midst of a pandemic (March), dealing with killer hornets (April) and now, the United States is on fire (May-June).
It has been…a lot.
Like, 2020 has been pulling no punches and just keeps dishing stuff out. It’s crazy, man. I am all up for joining Anemone under the sea at this point.
On a more serious note, I have already posted my thoughts about everything that’s going on over on Facebook, but to sum it up here:
- Now is NOT the time for all lives matter. Now is the time for Black Lives Matter. Now is the time to give Black people the microphone. Period.
- I really, really hope something good comes out of all this, and that everyone participating in the protests stay safe.
- Derek Chauvin and his fellow cops can rot.
- Donald Trump needs to take an exit. Or least have his Twitter taken away.
- George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Tony McDade. Say their names.
It would feel a bit remiss to not at least mention something here about it. Now is the time to learn and listen. Believe me, I’m doing both.
Okay. Back to screaming.
LOL JK one more mermaid drawing.
Someone pointed out that it was surprising that I hadn’t drawn anything walrus related for Mermay.
So I decided to fix that.
I’ve named him Clark. Because he seems like a Clark. Also, I think he might be my new favorite. He’s too cute.
Looks like our walrus friend has taken this opportunity to pick up a new skill: knitting! And from the looks of things, he’s, um, making progress. Kind of. Maybe.
…it’ll just take a little bit of practice. Or a lot. Just hang in there, man.
Note: this is not Lars. This is more than likely a distant relative, though.
Well now. Our walrus friend here was just wandering around at the beach, taking in the sights, when something caught his eye, just beyond the cliffs. The briefest of bright green shimmers, catching the light. Well, he had to see what it was, right?
And look what he found! A merman, chilling on the rocks, doing a bit of people watching himself. Certainly appears as though they caught each other’s interest, and are now on their way to becoming friends!
Looks like our walrus friend here has just gotten through an entire series of books. He’s bonded with the characters, he’s immersed himself into their world, he’s seen them perservere through all sorts of trials and tribulations – he’s even read through all of the supplementary books that aren’t a part of the main series. And now, he’s done. The journey has ended.
Now what’s he supposed to do?
…wait a few months and read it again, I suppose.
Looks like our walrus friend and his red panda sidekick are enjoying one of their favorite parts of summer: fireflies. They’ve waited until twilight, and have headed out into the backyard to catch some for themselves. They always let them go, of course, but it’s always fascinating even for a brief moment to hold that bit of light in their hands.
Sorry for the wonky posting schedule. Summer at work has been a bit crazier than I have anticipated. But I promise that I will definitely try to post when I can.
Well, looks like our walrus friend’s dealing with some plumbing issues. The shower wouldn’t turn off, so he’s decided to take care of it himself.
Only he might not know what he’s doing, and, well, he might need a new faucet handle. And the number of a decent plumber. And also to turn the water off before he tinkers with anything else.
