TIL of Mim, an eastern grey kangaroo raised by a family who hand-fed her. After they released her, Mim roamed wild for years; but when wildfires burned near the family's home in Kulnura, Australia, Mim turned up at their door seeking shelter. They let her stay indoors where she lounged on a blanket. theguardian.com/environme…
My wife’s birthday party was canceled due to the virus so we made a birthday blanket fort at home instead :) no real candles here, just LED ones!
LPT if you have to put down a beloved pet, make the vet come to your house to give them the injection. Nothing is more terrifying to them than to die in the only place they always hated to go. They deserve to be surrounded with all their toys and blankets before dying.
My mom made me this blanket all by herself!
[OC] I made this blanket. It's the daily high/low temperatures for Denver in 1992. imgur.com/9i6Z93u
On a post about a dude who moved in with his Dad/Stepmom/half sister. Dude bought an electric blanket because he has circulation issues, room is V cold. SM took the blanket, without asking, and gave it to sister for her period pain.
5 months later and I finally finished this mosaic blanket
yeah people faking depression is annoying but people pretending to care with like blanket statements about loving everyone is worse
School has been cancelled for the last 12 days. I may not finish 8th grade but I finished my first blanket!
A targeted blanket that seems really racist (My family’s last name is White)

I don't like sleeping with pillows or blankets.

My Persian Tiles blanket won first place in a crochet blanket competition!
A family friend of found an old Bulldog who was malnourished and with an awful tumor on his right side abandoned near the Highway with only a blanket (San Antonio, TX). She took him to the vet and is planning on adopting him... I hate the POS who did this. v.redd.it/i4d6wmghyhl41
Can an author’s publisher prevent them from giving this kind of blanket permission to use their works?
Quarantine day four: Made a blanket fort with my husband. I don't know how in the hell people are divorcing during quarantine, it is like a extended sleepover with your best friend.
I was told to quarantine because I am a teacher. Canada has it spring break going on right now and they don't want their teachers coming back with Corona.
So twist my arm I'm stuck with my best friend for two weeks with no interruptions.
And today we made a fort called Fort Kickass and the only rule is that pants are not allowed.
We are about to have a movie date night in our fort. Free popcorn and endless cuddling.
I don't know how on Earth couples are divorcing or fighting during this time. It has been almost seven years since we married and everyday we still fall in love with each other.
Kitten (that's her name) yells at me until I let her under the blankets. Then she uses my beard as a scratching post.
It is bloody large, so I have not been able to properly take a picture of it all. But after half a year, my blanket is finished
Finished my first Persian Tiles blanket! All cotton and my own choice of colors. So much fun doing it! 😊
Blanket forgiveness of student loan debt is a regressive policy.
Most of the debt is held by the government, and it's actually about a third of U.S. government's assets, so forgiving all student debt would be effectivelly one of the biggest tax cuts ever.
And it's mostly a tax on higher earners, as the median college grad makes 1 dollar and 75 cents for every dollar a high school grad makes.
So a blanket forgiveness of student loan debt would be a regressive policy.
already got her own discount code but then sets up a gofundme for an oversized blanket. but she’s pregnant and needs it!!!
A parent that body shame their kid is kind of like a knitter who mocks their blanket for having holes
And the blanket is just like "dude... you made me"
Judging by the amount of knitting I’m seeing, I think we’ll all emerge from the quarantine mid-summer looking ready for the Arctic north. Finished wool blanket.
My mom knit me a blanket for Xmas and he's obsessed with it 🤣

I just lost my precious 20 y/o kitty, Lucy, to liver cancer. She's been my absolute bestest friend and loyal companion since I was just a toddler. She passed incredibly peacefully in her little blanket on my lap while being loved on. My you rest in piece my beautiful baby.
Batman? Or a horse wearing a blanket?
I realized that when my seasonal depression kicked in, I started questioning my work and just shoving them in the closet when finished. So today I pulled out all the blankets I made since fall and gave them some appreciation. My next step is finding homes for them.
My mom worked on and off for two and a half years making this temperature blanket for me. Each row is 13 months and each color represents the average maximum monthly temp for the city where I lived at the time [OC]
This is my little Dexter he loves to be under a blanket.
Bungie, you are reverting Sniper Buffs because it made Izanagi a "safe" powerhouse, why don't you revert the blanket Machine Gun nerfs you did because "Auto Reload + Thunderlord" was doing too much damage?
Simply the title. The rationale for your earlier sniper buffs are gone, so you revert them. Your rationale for Machine Gun Nerfs have been gone for a long ass time. If it's all about the rationale no longer existing, just revert them along, since Auto Reload has been gone for a long long while.
It seems everyone is working on some kind of blanket to keep them busy during these strange times, here is mine! It's my family's tartan and it's going to be 60" by 80" when it's all done
I’m sick with the flu and she won’t leave my side. Woke up from a nap with her sharing my blanket.
A bit of fluff on my blanket that looks like a man running up a hill
As a couple sharing a bed, sleeping under separate blankets is superior to sharing a blanket.
Being able to choose how cool or warm you are without disturbing your partner is the best setup. The common problem of having a blanket hog can be solved by using separate blankets on the same bed, no more getting the blankets ripped off you when your partner rolls over!
The benefits are even greater if pets sleep on your bed, which decreases the amount of blanket being shared around.
Unless you’re a couple that spoons all night, there is no good reason for choosing to share a blanket over having your own.
I made a big ol’ picnic blanket/towel design! Fringe can be vertical or horizontal~
AITA for asking my ex for my blanket back?
Posting for a friend since her ex knows her account.
I broke up with my ex a year and a half ago. It was a clean, mutual breakup and we said we'd stay friends but never really spoke.
After the break up I was searching high and low for a blanket of mine that I really loved. It's grey with tassels and I embroidered some little flower vines down the edges. I has just moved recently and presumed it got lost in the move and I was super bummed about it. It was my first real sewing project and I was very proud of it.
Last night I was scrolling through Instagram and ex had a post of him and his new gf cuddling up under my blanket. I was pissed. I'd asked him at the time and he said he hadn't seen it but would message if he found it.
I sent him a message asking if that was my blanket (I knew it was) and saying that I wanted it back. He saw the message and didn't reply but 5 minutes later I got a very angry voice message from his girlfriend shouting about how selfish I was tor asking for it

EM Demands I Give Her Spoiled Kid MY Blanket During Drill
So, fair warning, this did happen a bit ago, but I wasn't permitted Internet at the time this all went down. Also, the place I went isn't exactly somewhere I can talk a lot about, like, legally. Also, all names literally must be censored.
Also, this was before the Coronavirus was a thing at all. No pandemic going on here, no fear of contagion.
To give you pretty much the most descriptive answer I can give, I was at a rehab facility for kids with severe mental illness and/or behavioral issues. I have really bad PTSD and depression, and I was in a really dark place, which is why I was there. Our parents weren't allowed to stay here with us, but parents did come and visit occasionally, and today, a girl's mother was visiting her.
This girl wasn't very well-liked. She acted spoiled, entitled to everything, and would routinely insult other people. She's the entitled kid. I'll call her Martha. The whole group was glad to be away from Martha while she visited her Mom in a separate area. I

My quarantine rainbow waffle blanket so far!
LPT: Always carey emergency mylar blankets. They may seem extremely thin but they reflect over 90% of body heat. They can save you in very cold situations or save someone in shock.
They look like aluminum foil and usually come in a bag. Keep a few in your car to save a life. *carry is spelled wrong in the title -not always carry one just in your car or something ~it doesn’t always help people in shock, just keeps them warm
I turned a piece of woolen blanket into a jacket for my daughter
My husband was definitely laughing at me as I sucked in air through my teeth in anticipation, working the last few stitches of the final border round. But I won! Just barely! And used up all my scraps, and then some ;) After 11 months my Seaside Stash-Busting Blanket is finally done.

Why did BookMyBai put a blanket-ban on providing a maid to Bollywood celebrities ?
I am a big fan of Bollywood movies. I also admire a lot of actors for their acting skills. However this admiration takes a huge U-turn when it comes to deal with some so-called “Bollywood celebrities” and providing them with a service.
BookMyBai is in a very high eye-ball business. Almost everyone needs our service. There is a common saying – “Maid – You cant live with them, you cant live without them” – We started BookMyBai with an aim to permanently disrupt this industry and become the go-to service whenever a family need a domestic help. After a lot of hard-work and innovation, we proudly claim that our hard-work is starting to pay-off and we have provided a good and reliable domestic help to over 10000 households. Most of the maid agencies in India are fraud and fly-by-night and due to this we are becoming the preferred service to hire a maid

Steve Kerr on Curry playing without Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson: “Steph, in many ways, has depended on those guys. Sort of as a giant security blanket.”
“I think it’s important for Steph and Andrew (Wiggins) to get to know each and play together. I think it’s important for Steph to play without all the guys we’ve lost who are not gonna be back next year. Kevin, Andre, and Shaun,” Steve Kerr said, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
“Steph, in many ways, has depended on those guys. Sort of a giant security blanket. For a guy who’s so skilled and talented, this has still been a team effort over the years. He’s been blessed with some of the smartest and most talented players in the league. It’s going to be different for him. It’s important for him to feel the difference. It’s been different for us. Steph needs to feel that for himself”.

All She Wanted to Know Where the Electric Blankets Were
This happened to me this weekend. I work at a big box store and was covering the home goods department since someone called out. Side note: It's not my normal department; I normally work in either kitchen ware or the seasonal section, but I have worked in this section enough to know what we do/don't have and where stuff is. Anyway, I was stocking a shelf when this older woman comes up to me. (For this story, we are going to call her Old Hag (or OH) for short.) She steps a little too close to me.
OH: Excuse me.
Her breath was awful. I noticed she had plastic food prep gloves on her hands as I took a step back, plastering a smile on my face.
Me: Hi! What can I do for you?
OH: Where are your electric blankets?
Me: I'm sorry, ma'am. We are sold out of them.
OH: How do you know that?
Me: I saw them go on clearance about two months ago and haven't seen them since.
OH: Okay, can you get me someone who actually works in this department? Clearly, you don't know what you have.
I was stu
