making up your own fictional universe
creating an entire history for it
creating characters who have complex back stories
RESEARCHING NAMES WITH MEANINGS THAT CORRESPOND TO THE HISTORY AND UNIVERSE AND BACK STORIES YOU’VE COME UP WITH
then never writing or doing anything with it at all ever

My cat does not know how to cat.
See, he cries at the front door (so I’ll let him out on the front porch) and at the back door, (where I meow back and tell him no, he’s not going outside), and when he wants petting in the middle of the night.
He has never once cried at his empty food bowl.
However, he’s picked up a new trick. He sits in front of the front door, crying until I come to let him out. And as soon as I reach him, he turns around and runs full tilt across the house to sit silently beside his empty food bowl. If I don’t follow him and put food in the bowl, he goes back to the front door and cries some more.
So he cries in the wrong room, at the wrong object, until it produces food in his bowl.
And I’m just like, HOW. HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS CONNECTION YOU HAVE A BRAIN THE SIZE OF A RED HOT.
I tried to teach my cat not to claw the couch by giving her a treat every time she used the scratching post. This only partially worked. She learned that the post got her a treat, but not that she should NOT scratch the couch.
But anyway, she associated scratching post with treat, but she never remembered that *I* was a part of this equation. So she’d use the post, and then go over to the treat bag and meow at it, never once looking at me.
I bet she did it when I wasn’t even home.

A girl draw a series of self-portraits after she’d taken LSD
After 15 minutes
1 hour and 45 minutes
2 hours and 15 minutes
3 and a haf hours
4 hours and 45 minutes
6 hours and 45 minutes
8 hours and 45 minutes
9 and a half hours
so when you take LSD you become a goddess
Now I know I will never try LSD.
I mean, NINE HOURS? Who has TIME for that??
