Probably have another pilonidal cyst. Yay.
And I woke up this morning with a huge lump under my tongue. So my sublingual salivary gland are probably blocked. Again. Last time they blocked, the ENT said next time they would have to be removed. Also, last time, it swelled so much it was slightly harder to breathe.
Well, if I need surgery on both, one can have one end and the other surgeon can have the freaking other.
I pledge to reblog this every time it shows up on my dash

The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]
I went to find out more about this place, and the website had this little nugget of information;
Many of the plants are already well-known for their medicinal properties, but as its creator, the Duchess of Northumberland said:
'I wondered why so many gardens around the world focused on the healing power of plants rather than their ability to kill… I felt that most children I knew would be more interested in hearing how a plant killed, how long it would take you to die if you ate it and how gruesome and painful the death might be.'
I believe I may have found a new hero.
In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.
Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.
Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.
And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.
How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies
And this Ladies and Gentlemen is why I love Maleficent. She was perfection. She allowed them to make up for their mistake and when they refused she unleashed Hell.
