A March Break . . . with “Creme” Eggs

Yeah. That’s how they spell it. “Creme.”

Did I just Mandela Effect you? Cause I definitely just Mandela Effected myself when I glanced at the box.

Anyway, hello! I’m taking a break today.

On one hand because I woke up from weird dreams earlier. Dreams that were chok-full of people from my past. People I don’t even think about anymore until my brain decides to drop them into my dreams like, “Hyuck! Guess who!” I woke up from that immediately weirded out, didn’t eat breakfast . . . and then left the apartment to run errands, only realizing I forgot my glasses? Just not a great start.

On the other hand though, I’m taking a break because . . . I actually did write the majority of a good post, but I realized I really needed to do research before publishing it. Basically, I wanted to coin a term for a type of worldbuilding, but it occurred to me while writing that there must already be a term for it, so rather than pig-headedly pretending I came up with an idea that probably already exists, I want to do the proper research instead, find that term, and elevate the woman or man who came up with it.

So I figure I’m going to let that post sit, take a Sunday off, do a ton of research next week, and post a hardcore article with sources–which is something I want to start doing more of anyway.

In the meantime . . . someone gave me Cadbury Creme Eggs. I am not going to eat all of them in one sitting, because I’m at the age where I genuinely think I’d die if I did.

But a single Creme Egg with vanilla soy milk and Spiritfarer? That sounds like a beautiful night off.

So, I’m going to get to that.

If this is your first time here, I post every Sunday, but, once a month, I give myself the luxury of days off (like today). For a hint of what I’ll be posting in coming weeks, I have the aforementioned post about worldbuilding, a life update, and a post about the genre tropes of certain decades (and what they say about the generations who wrote them).

For tonight though, stay safe, wash your hands, and be careful when you’re buying glasses online. Seriously, if the website you use has a preview feature where they use your camera so you can virtually try glasses on, use it. Does not matter how good the glasses look on their own–they might just look wrong on your face.

Okay–bye!
