Talk to me.   feral children, paper crafts, photography, independent film, the epic in the midst of the everyday, pop culture, etymology, absurd humor, genealogy, garden gnomes, gag reels, the human condition, oddities & curiosities, the fringes of society & science, folklore, comparative mythology, literal meanings of French idioms, oxford commas, street food, the banal & the bizarre.

This is me and my face.
This tumblr is a peek inside part of my brain. For a view of the rest of my brain, I double dog dare you to check out my other tumblrs: babyjesusonacross, goddamned delightful, hetermorphy, suntan & napalm, bathroom wall anarchy, the psychology of color

I didnt get much sleep last night, granted, but I’ve been laughing about this for over a minute now.

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you crossed a slug with a leaf, friends, we have your answer right here. This strange creature that appears to be part leaf, part slug and part tongue is a Leaf-vein slug (Athoracophorus bitentaculatus), a species of land slug native to New Zealand. They’re nocturnal and thought to feed primarily on algae and fungi found on the surface of plants, which means they don’t damage plants like plenty of other slug species do.
This particular specimen was photographed by Redditor Aaronlolwtf while they were out trimming some flax last year.

"I liked the idea of living in a city - any city, especially a strange one - liked the thought of traffic and crowds, of working in a bookstore, waiting tables in a coffee shop, who knew what kind of odd, solitary life I might slip into? Meals alone, walking the dogs in the evening; and nobody knowing who I was."
Donna Tartt, The Secret History (via unmaiden)
