MORE IN THE CONTINUING SAGA OF MNEME VS COCKROACH

Contacted apt people.

Evidently the exterminator people are coming tomorrow anyway, so like THEY WILL COME BY AND MAKE MY APARTMENT INTO A ROACH DEATH TRAP.

EXCELLENT

capnromanoff:

consider this: 

thor is always running into little kids who are thrilled to meet him - he doesn’t really understand the concept of signing autographs, but he starts carrying asgardian toys around in his pockets to give to kids he meets (much to shield’s chagrin - how are we supposed to keep alien tech under control when the god of thunder is giving out magnetic propulsion toys to five-year-olds?) 

but one day, he meets this girl who’s nine, maybe ten, and she runs up to him all misty-eyed and immediately asks him if he knows jane foster

and her mother’s embarrassed because “honey, that’s thor, aren’t you excited to see thor?” but the girl just explains that she wants to be a scientist when she grows up, and that jane foster is the astrophysicist (she pronounces the word carefully, as if she’s been practicing) who found out how the rainbow bridge worked - isn’t that so cool? she read about it in kids discover and they watched a documentary in school and dr. foster was in it and it made her think that maybe because she likes planets so much she could be a scientist, too 

and thor smiles broadly and tells her that wanting to be a scientist is a noble dream, and he says “if your mother would be willing, i could introduce you” 

and that’s how jane foster ends up with a tiny science geek in pigtails trailing around behind her in her lab, asking how everything works. jane can’t really comprehend the fact that a kid would want to meet her, but she likes explaining things and she looks at this girl and can’t help seeing herself. thor is just fucking delighted because to him the idea of jane being a child’s hero makes perfect sense, why wouldn’t it? she’s jane

and years later the girl grows up to be an astrophysicist or an astronaut or an aerospace engineer and she never forgets the time that dr. jane foster knelt down beside her and said, don’t let anybody stop you from chasing the stars, if that’s what you want 

jane foster inspiring girls in science, y/y

chrysogenum replied to your post “chrysogenum replied to your post “Adulthood is knowing what cockroach…”

no uhhh supposedly cucumber can help repel cockroaches. 99% sure this is untrue but at least your apt will smell of cucumber and not sulfur?


according to google…no. It will not. Which is good because I have no cucumbers.

In other news, I decided to toss the cockroach into the garbage disposal.

If it’s not dead, I’m moving overseas.

ferrific replied to your post “ithilienne replied to your post “Adulthood is knowing what cockroach…”

check your lease. there is usually something about pests and who is responsible for them.

I’ll do that T_T

ithilienne replied to your post “ithilienne replied to your post “Adulthood is knowing what cockroach…”

can’t hurt to call/talk about it, for sure. my landlord at the aforementioned place was scum and did nothing (….). good luck to you, though, bb <3 (protip: ortho home defense spray around the perimeter of your apt is the best!)

ugh that sucks. I will definitely check out that spray.

astroprojection replied to your post “I want to call my mother but I don’t think she’d be terribly…”

i had soooo many cockroaches in my apt during my first semester of master’s and i literally broke down and cried at one point and it was the worst so my sympathies are w/ you *hugs*

*LIES ON THE GROUND*

It’s getting colder (i.e. NOT 80 DEGREES) down here and I’m terrified of other cockroaches stopping by and UGH.

I want to call my mother but I don’t think she’d be terribly appreciative of being called close to midnight solely because her eldest daughter was traumatized by a cockroach. T_T
