1. tried the new oreo Os last week. rather bleh, not the same without those little "cream" pieces that looked like marshmallow disks.

2. trying to find a new scent of deodorant with a half-stuffed nose is no fun. chose secret scent expressions coconut splash invisible solid.
considered boho berry; a kind of dusty berry scent. also considered chill ocean; kind of smells like the "fresh" or "powder" scents. the hawaii citrus smells like cheap vitamin c tablets. the classic coco butter kind of smells like some sort of hand lotion, but not quite.
hopefully it will work out, there is that troublesome thing called body chemistry after all.

3. there a guy here that complains every day about going outside to smoke. i'm like "dude, you knew there was a smoke-free place when you applied to be here."

4. i maybe be a much larger size in bras than i thought. it's going to be a major pain to find one that fits & that i like. the sides on the bigger once usually cut into my armpits. i swear whoever designs these thing never has to wear one.
i got these things from my mom, which she apologized for. on
on the other end of the scale was my dad's mother who once said that when she was young hers were like half lemons, but became fried eggs when she got older.

since it will get hotter before it gets cooler, especially in the south & southwest, this is info people need.



HEAT EXHAUSTION 

feeling faint or dizzy

excessive sweating

cool, pale, clammy skin

nausea or vomiting

rapid, weak pulse

muscle cramps

treatment: get to a cool, air conditioned place. drink water if fully conscious. take a cool shower or use cool compresses. (i suggest using them around your neck or on the inside of your wrists, where the blood vessels or arteries are close to the surface.)



HEAT STROKE 

throbbing headache

no sweating

body temperature above 103 F (39.4 C)

red, hot, dry skin

nausea or vomiting

rapid, strong pulse

may lose consciousness

treatment: CALL 911 (or whatever equivalent is in your country) take immediate action to cool the person until help arrives. (i suggest providing shade, maybe getting them inside if they're on hot cement & use cool compresses on them)

fanfic recs: themed version

it has been over a year since I last made a list of recs. usually I center my recs around a pairing or character, at least mostly. this time around I'd like to go by themes instead to shake things up. :)
As always, only finished fics are recced, no cliffhangers here. The theme of this post is AU. I think I'll do other posts with other themes later. Weirdly enough I have enough ABO fics for its own rec list so they'll be excluded here.


it's sort of hard to gauge what is and isn't an AU when you're in superhero comics fandom, so YMMV, these are what I consider to be AUs (example: House of M stories count, Injustice: Gods amongst us stories don't count - those belong to evil mirror verse stories)

the recs themselves are sorted by fandom, then major pairings.
