I keep seeing that strawberry dress on Instagram and it never stops surprising me how many people have spent $500+ on glitter on tulle, which is a sparkle shedding disaster fabric.
@erinbee its me and i’m buying them as a gift for my enemies
@reverb It's popular enough that there are knockoffs, may as well get the most glitterbomb bang for your buck
I bet if I owned tulle anything the cat would try to eat it. Since I don't post selfies right and left, it hardly seems worth the risk. :/
@xenophora Go viral by posting the cat eating it 🤔
That time he ate a length of cooking string 8-10 years ago it ran us $2K, plus interest. 😬
They tried to cheer me up by saying that if it had progressed into his stomach that would've been an extra $1K or so. 🙄
@xenophora Shit, that vet sounds like a car mechanic
It's because we had to rush him to Emergency on a Sunday night, rather than waiting until 9 AM Monday for our regular vet to come in. They did an endoscopy, and then he staggered around confused most of the next day, thanks to the good drugs, wondering why a bunch of fur on his front right leg was gone (and probably why his throat felt so weird). #cats 🐾
@erinbee Sparkles aren't just a fucking mess to clean. They're actually kinda dangerous for the environment.
@Mainebot Yep, that's part of the disaster. And you could prevent glitter loss through dry cleaning, but that's not great either. It's just bad news.
@erinbee replace sparkles with threaded in fiberoptic cabling and pipe in some hot af coloured light. Let's make the future happen!
@Mainebot That's not very cottagecore of you, bro
@erinbee do you think that the cyberpunk version of a cottage in the woods is a suburban rancher with a converted garage filled with computer shit and an overgrown driveway?
@Mainebot Absolutely, or choose a trailer in the middle of the desert with two satellite dishes for internet and a ham antenna on the roof.
@erinbee ohhh yeah, something southwest dirty. PNW cyberpunk cottage might be a houseboat with a big cable running underwater and spliced into some Super Internet Junction.
Or like... a gas station, years after oil is over.
@erinbee I absolutely own plenty of sparkle shedding disaster fabric because I have sparkly disaster fashion sense, but it is not in the form of a $500 dress.
