Yeah, I hardly ever write in this thing anymore. Must be time!

Honestly though, you people haven't missed much. The Coles Notes version:
  • Spent the last half of September sick (oh, hospitals, how I love loathe thee). I'll spare the gory details; let's just say I hope never to have an internal bleeding infection ever again! My blood can stay in my veins, thanks. The side effects of the medication were almost worse than the infection itself. I still feel nauseous a lot but it's getting better. : )

  • Faced a couple of difficult choices in September, most notably whether or not to throw in the towel versus continuing to allow my loyalty in a particular friendship to be taken for granted. In the end I called it quits. Wasn't easy. But, I can no longer afford to be emotionally invested in people who figure it's okay to turn their back on me whenever it suits them while still expecting to find me waiting when they deign to bless me with their presence again. I'm owed better than that. I don't think it's too much to expect the people I call "friend" to actually act like adults and deal with me instead of entertaining fifth-grade level playground antics.

  • I went to war! After two and a half years playing the game, I've gotten into PvP in EVE Online. My first few battles were not so spectacular (including one really embarrassing mistake) but after I joined up with Comic Mischief I learned a lot very quickly and have been having a pretty good time. War decs help too. : ) The first war really didn't have a lot of combat in it but I think that was good for me since it let me get used to flying in a proper fleet. Made some new friends too which is excellent. We have another war dec in the works!

  • ranakanth and I split up at Easter. I've been an emotional mess since then. Trying to move on; have tried and still trying to date but honestly failing miserably. It's hard to start over and every time I think I'm "getting there", well, something happens to remind me my heart is still tangled up. He and I are still friends though and I'm thankful for that.

  • Going to Vegas! This is actually an "up and coming". My plane leaves on Hallowe'en and I'm gone almost two weeks. W00t w00t. Vacation is good.

  • Work is work. Some epic stupid lately, what with the building losing power while the senior staff were away and my bosses thinking I was joking about it when I asked for help. Real awesome stuff.

  • House hasn't fallen down yet. Win! This November I've been here six years. Four to go for the mortgage. In about two and a half to three years it'll be time to start deciding what to do when the mortgage is gone. I've been thinking about New Zealand again.

  • Haven't done much of anything creative lately what with all the stress and "life". Seems the Muse is taking off for vacation more often than using all that drama as fuel. But hopefully the recent Photostream plus the next one which is nearly done is a sign I can get things going again. Also, art? Like, ever? I did buy a Cintiq for crying out loud. Also recently picked up neondragon's latest book. Just need to actually...do something.
That's about it in a nutshell. How are all of you?

I've just added this Photostream to Incyanity. It features photos from my 2006 trip to the Poet's Cove Resort & Spa. Wee!

I'm home. Tacoma was awesome. Friend was awesome. I had a great time.

Drama at home is ongoing. I should have stayed in the US.

This Friday I'm leaving town to drive to Tacoma, WA. It's a 14 hour drive and I'm going alone. I'm leaving at midnight and aiming to arrive at the hotel around 2pm-3pm on Saturday.

I'm going to meet a friend I've known for the last two years playing EVE Online. I'm pretty excited—never gone on a road trip of this magnitude by myself before and I haven't been to Seattle since I was 15. It should be lots of fun!

When I tell people I am doing this, many of them get that look like I'm insane and will probably end up hacked into little pieces and fed to pigs. Although I am not in the least worried, I promise to leave all the specifics of my journey with ranakanth on the off chance I don't arrive at the destination or don't show up for work on Tuesday, and he can be relied upon to send out the search parties and whatnot.

I need this trip... There has been way too much drama lately and it will be nice to have something go right for a change.

<3 you guys.

I'm late! Been out of town a lot lately. : )

Happy (belated) birthday to fyreuni and taeha!

I know Fyreuni spent the day at the Stampede grounds trying out more deep fried food on a stick and generally having fun. Taeha, I hope you had fun too!

The doctor, after an examination, sighed and said, "I've got some bad news. You have cancer, and you'd best put your affairs in order."

The woman was shocked, but managed to compose herself and walk into the waiting room where her daughter had been waiting.

"Well, daughter, we women celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when things don't go so well. In this case, things aren't well. I have cancer. So, let's head to the club and have a martini."

After three or four martinis, the two were feeling a little less somber. There were some laughs and more martinis.

They were eventually approached by some of the woman's old friends, who were curious as to what the two were celebrating. The woman told her friends they were drinking to her impending end. "I've been diagnosed with AIDS."

The friends were aghast, gave the woman their condolences and beat a hasty retreat.

After the friends left, the woman's daughter leaned over and whispered, "Momma, I thought you said you were dying of cancer, and you just told your friends you were dying of AIDS! Why did you do that?"

The woman did not pause before answering, "Because I don't want any of those bitches sleeping with your father after I'm gone."


And THAT, my friends, is what is called "Putting Your Affairs In Order".


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY...

Women are like phones:
They like to be held, talked to, and touched often.
But, push the wrong button and your ass is disconnected.
