Be an example… show kindness to unkind people. Forgive people who don’t deserve it. Love unconditionally. Your actions always reflect who you are.
In 4 hours I'm leaving for the airport ✈️ en route to Shanghai for a couple of days, before cruising 🚢 back home, arriving on Sept. 14th. Unlikely to get internet access while I'm away - but who knows.
I have prescribed myself two and one half fingers of straight whiskey to be sipped slowly. It has been an incredibly crappy day, but sip by sip it's getting better.
Those poor, dusty bottles haven't seen me since around January.

Evaporation gets blamed for a lot of things people

Did you know?
Yeah, I too, thought it was fear of germs.
Did you know?
Every so often the system actually works.

just now I thought God wanted to spare me the torture of watching eclipse. Because I was just about to post that I was going to start it and the power went out.

read my other statuses, I'm not using mobile data for Twilight)
I too prefer the traditional mechanics vis a vis vampires and the sun.
However, it does present certain frustrations in plot planning. Especially if you have your fiendish heart set on a high school romance that allows scenes in classes.
So, if you need to break from the norm, durable diamond-like skin that twinkles in sunlight is a solution and a plausible source of secrecy. It is also a better evolutionary adaptation than solar exposure induced combustion. However, a nod to evolutionary biology is undermined by ignoring that jewels sparkle in all light.
It also works slightly better as a solution than a magic ring. I meant scientifically. Sigh. I take it back, magic rings rule. (Make for dubious birthday presents though)
Although you'd think a lot more twinkle fairies would seek out the weather in Forks.
