Arthur, Children, and Dad: The Halfling's declining birthrates, in tandem with a deeply ingrained culture of hospitality has led to a recent uptick in cross-species adoption. Frequently orphaned, due to the naturally short lifespan:s of orcs, orcish children with halfling parents have become somewhat more common in halfling settlements. po Dad (60) (Adopted) Daughter (16) / Love MY While it is generally considered unacceptable for little folk to go adventuring, it is perfectly repectable for any upstanding halfling to travel distantly in search of an appropriate child (In light of recent events, laws have been passed that only allow for one such venture to prevent the sizes of families getting out of hand) missoyashirou: mithrils-hanger: lizawithazed: dvandom: filibusterfrog: halflings love their new giant children “So, Mister…GRAAAAGH Underhill-by-Sackville, is it?”“Indeed.”“You’re an Orc, but you don’t mention any clan….”“Oh, I’m culturally Hobbitish, I was adopted at a very young age.  And I’m very keen on this position you have open at your trading house.”“The guard position?”“Heavens, no.  I barely know which end of a sword goes into the miscreant.  I am a certified accountant, and eager to make my mark in respectable society.” I once played a kobold sorcerer-rogue with this exact backstory even better, Tolkein Orcs seem to grow in size based on how good their diet is. thus Misty Mountain and Moria ‘goblins’ are relatively small (caves rarely provide much in the way of nourishment), Mordor orcs are a bit on the larger size, but still close to dwarf size (given that two hobbits easily blend in), while the extremely well fed Orthanc Uruk-Hai are the size of large men.Hobbits eat six meals a day, when they can get them. and love to snack in between. even the poorest are able to sustain this diet, and the rich just eat far more elaborate meals.  those adopted kids are going to grow up to be huge. A 10 foot tall green dude by the name of Arthur Brambly-Took came to my luncheon and now I’m going to have to marry him

Crazy, Cute, and Food: parisianqueen During the most poor and homeless period of my life, I had a lot of people get angry with me because l spent $25 on Bath and Body Works candles during a sale. They couldn't comprehend why the hell I would do that when I had been fighting for months to try and get us on our feet, afford food, and have an apartment to live in. Those candles were placed beside whereverl slept that night. In the morning, I would move them and set them wherever I'd have to hang out. At one point I carried one around in my purse one of those big honking 3-wick candles. I never lit them, but I'd open them and smell them a lot. I credit that purchase with a lot of my drive that got me to where l am today. I had been working tirelessly, 15+ hour days with barely any reward, constantly on the phone or trying to deal with organizations and associations to "get help at". It'd gone on for almost a year by the end of it, and I was so burnt out, to the point that I would shake 24/7. But I could get a bit of relief from my 3-wick "upper middle class lifestyle" candles. They represented my future goals, my home I wanted to decorate, and how I would one day not be in this mess anymore When we moved into the apartment, and our financial status improved, I burned those candles every single day. When they were empty, I cleaned them out, stuck labels on them, and they became the starting point of my really cute organization system I had ALWAYS planned to have. So whenever I hear about someone very poor getting themselves a treat maybe it's Starbucks, maybe it's a home deco item maybe it's a video game... I don't judge them. I get it. I get that you can't go without anything for that long without it making you go crazy. You need to pull some joy, inspiration, and motivation from somewhere moralistically poor people deserve things they want, too. it is unfair to expect poor people to only buy things they "need". enide-s-dear My grandfather used to tell me: if you only have 20 kr left, you buy grocery for 10 kr and flowers for the other 10 kr because you need a reasorn to live as well. shiobookmark You need hope and nourishment in equal measure im so proud of how well i cropped this

The poor thing is going to come home, stomp up to her room, try to slam the door, but it’ll be impossible because Chris Hemsworth will effortlessly stop the door with his huge Norse God arm. And she’ll be like “DAD! YOU SCARED HIM AWAY!” “I DID NO SUCH THING, MY DEAREST DAUGHTER. I ONLY SPOKE TO HIM THE TRUEST TRUTH OF THE NINE REALMS.” “Oh my god, dad…” “HE HAD AN ILL LOOK ABOUT HIM, I LIKED IT NOT. YOU ARE DESERVING OF THE HIGHEST OF QUALITY IN MEN, NOT THE LIKES OF HIM.

I promise.” “UNCLE TOM STOP TALKING LIKE THAT.” “Darling girl, my name is Loki, God of Mischief, Silvertongue, Lord of Lies. I know not of this Tom you speak of.” “YES, MY DEAR. YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL BE SAFE FROM ANY SO-CALLED WRONGDOING OF OURS.” “Dad…” “WHAT IS IT, DAUGHTER?” “Never mind. Thanks, good night.” #And then the next day Tom and Chris are in full costume#helmets and all#with their scepters and their capes#And she brings in this young guy#and they open the door#And there’s her father and her godfather#Tom smiling his ovary-bursting smile#you know the evil one that’s also strangely sexy#And Chris has his hammer at the ready#and they greet him#calling him a suitor for the hand of the princess of Asgard#talking about how he’ll need to complete nine Trials to prove himself worthy to have her as his queen #he never calls her back I’m sorry but this just keeps getting better and better EACH TIME I SEE THIS THERE ARE MORE WONDERFUL COMMENTS OMFG DIS POST. DEM COMMENTS /dying It gets better every fucking time! I am CRYING oh my god [[And there will be that one guy. He won’t run or never call again. He’ll sit there and play along. “I, (insert name), swear on my very life that thine daughter, thine princess of Asgard shall return safely to you. My very life be forfeit at your hands if it be otherwise.” It’ll be RDJ’s kid. His dad will have warned him about this long beforehand and quizzed him on it.]]

Fire, Food, and Fresh: ORGANIC O RGANICOUMA WHAT A 'STOMACH CRACK MEANS ACCORDING TO CHINESE MEDICINE The tongue is the window to the soul… or is it the eyes?! No matter how the saying goes, in Traditional Chinese Medicine aka TCM, your tongue can tell you a LOT about what’s going on inside of your body. I’ll never forget the time my friend was suffering from headaches, nausea & feeling faint for 2 days straight. When I looked at her tongue, it was a deep reddish purple, indicating some serious “liver heat” & “blood stasis.” I immediately made her mung bean broth (which clears heat and toxicity from the body) and had her eat light, cooling foods like celery and watermelon the rest of the week. The tongue pattern we’re looking at today deals with a “stomach crack” down the middle rather than an abnormal color. In TCM, this means 2 things: “stomach yin deficiency” (which I’ll explain) and CHRONIC DEHYDRATION! A tongue with cracks is inadequately moistened and therefore, the whole body and GI tract is also dehydrated (think of the cracks in dessert sand when it hasn’t rained for ages!) The best way to reverse this dehydration is not plain water, but rather mineral-rich liquids such as celery, carrot, and cucumber juice that the body can readily assimilate. Warm soup made with greens, seaweed and root veggies is excellent too. In TCM, warm liquids will soften a hard-dehydrated stomach lining and intestines so that they can start absorbing nutrients and fluids again. Now onto "stomach yin deficiency”: Digestion in TCM is viewed metaphorically as a pot of soup sitting on a fire. Stomach YIN is the pot that holds the food and extracts the nourishment; stomach YANG is the fire that ‘cooks’ the food and fuels metabolism. Stomach yin is nourished when we make the job of extracting nutrients easy. But stomach yin DEFICIENCY develops when we have irregular eating habits, skip meals, eat late at night, eat in a hurry, eat while working or standing up, etc. To work on this “stomach crack” and heal stomach yin deficiency: Eat fresh foods that are LIGHTLY cooked or soups that are SLOW cooked - too much heat too fast (frying, roasting) will eventually deplete the stomach’s yin reserves. blackhealthmatters VIA: @organic_olivia
