Status: hilly terrain [Apr. 2nd, 2011|02:11 pm]
Stars and coelancaths, but has this been a couple months.

There’s been everything from the most wonderfully welcome and shiny to the utterly horrible, and everything in between.

It’s been made rather evident to me - on one particularly memorable occasion, within the space of the same day - at once how very far I’ve come, and how deep some of the damage still runs.Collapse )

In other, probably more interesting news...

First, a gallery of art for charity for the Japan tsunami.
Not all of it does much for me, but the pieces that do.../gods/. Collapse )

On a lighter note, this vid reminded me of why I love How to Train Your Dragon so VERY much (and I think has also installed the song permanently in the back of my head).

In the spirit of the day [Apr. 1st, 2011|12:57 pm]
Rather than pranks, I think I find I prefer that you see it coming perfectly well.

In that spirit, I present to you choice selections of a Twitter happening you may have missed: #poetryimprovedbyaddingcustard

No, I am not making this up.Collapse )

You're welcome. *cackle*

Annual evaluation [Jan. 1st, 2011|11:11 pm]
So. 2011, now.

...gods, it feels almost like the one of these I did for 2010 was just last month.

But. Well. I suppose that means it's been a year since I started to recover.
...and it has helped. It's been slow. There've been setbacks. But...better than it was.

Been trying, a bit, to gradually get a handle on bits of myself again.Collapse )

...it's a bit of a work in progress. But that I'm actually capable of even thinking about it this much...it's a thing to be hopeful about, I think, as the new year begins.

Taking stock. [Oct. 20th, 2010|11:25 pm]
Been doing a fair bit of thinking, lately.

I'm not what I was.

And, over the longer term...that still hurts.

What's changed is that over the shorter term - a single year, say?

It's become a good thing.

That's definitely an improvement.Collapse )

A change of subject. [Jun. 8th, 2010|06:15 pm]
Alright, that's been entirely enough exploration of the emotional tarpits. They demand far too much attention anyway, and there's things that deserve it far more, and all of us can always use some more reminding that awesome things exist too.

So! Since it's what those archives are /for/, have a grab bag of Things:

The Geek Alphabet

Precision Flying

Wrong Kitty

Pencil vs. Camera (17)

Techno Jeep

Best. Tempo. Ever.

Arabian Clockwork

Laptop For Sale

Tea Rex and Velo Sir Raptor

Clockwork Top Hat


Brotherly Love

The Tooth Fairy Calculator

Now is the winter of...

Cycles Will Be Removed

Oh, don't quite a few of us WISH...

Whatever you do...
I am entirely too fond of that table.

Honestly not sure whether that's an improvement over raccoons.

Pirates of the Caribbean (Electrotone)
With godzilla on keyboard.

The Greatest Invention Yet

Western Spaghetti

Food About You

Frozen Grand Central

I am /far too amused/ by this.

Sound of Music (Antwerp)
And this.

Bohemian Rhapsody for Printer and Oscilloscope

No, /seriously/.

Jon Schmidt instrumental mashup
Ridiculous fondness for this is probably at least partially due to my own quirks, but I maintain it is nevertheless both pretty and quite impressive.

A:tLA Two Worlds, One Family
Avatar vid that should NOT work anywhere near that well.

Kid's Still Standing

This. This...
So, um. XD
It is a BAD idea to flail at length at a friend how a particular song and a series that cheerily prances all over your mutual sucker buttons match far too well. Two years later they will acquire video editing software and shiny new footage and take revenge by throwing the result at you, promptly burning out every neuron you've got.

Quote of the Day:
" 'Sykes!'
He turned in the doorway. 'Yes?'
'What's it all mean?' said Jack. 'Magic?'
'Magic?' said Sykes. 'Magic is that power that dwells somewhere in the back of our dreams, that makes us wish that miracles were possible and that a mortal man could have the ability to grasp a part of eternity, if only for a moment. Magic is the total of all the mysteries that we can't understand and the culmination of all the hopes we've ever thought possible. It is our last true miracle, and you know that it exists every time you feel the rain on your face, or hear the sound of children asking questions, or an old man laughing at a slightly off-color joke his nine-year-old grandson told at dinner. It is with us always, and it will comfort and protect us when the darkness arrives, holding our hand until the morning is in sight. It's the reason that we go on living, even in the face of hopelessness. It's the final mystery of the human heart, my friend. For it is there and only there that all true wizardy lies.' "

Continuing survival [Jan. 1st, 2010|09:49 pm]
Have contemplated posting a few times when it looked like things were improving. And then they kept going back into the toilet before I got time.

Right now...well. I think my life hates me slightly less? But, well...it's kind of like how standing in a T-shirt in the middle of a Minnesota midwinter blizzard is technically an improvement over standing in a T-shirt in the middle of Siberian midwinter blizzard. There is undoubtedly a measurable difference, but either way, no matter how doggedly you endure, there is a large part of your brain involuntarily dedicating itself to just how much you do not want to be there.

Had a bit of a minor epiphany the other day. Collapse )

But enough of that. Hello, 2010. Please, please do not be worse that your immediately prior siblings. That would be very kind and appreciated of you, thanks.

Nothing that can be described as well. [Mar. 30th, 2009|03:39 pm]

Further entries will most likely not be forthcoming until my life stops HATING me.

When pop songs start describing your life, this is a sign that You Have A Problem.

Still alive. [Feb. 26th, 2009|08:12 pm]
So, promised explanations have not materialized. This is due mostly to a ridiculous lack of time and brainpower. And sanity.

I wish there was as much humor in that last sentence as is normal for me.

So, this post is...well, to be honest, mostly because a couple of passing comments from friends got me doing some mental arithmetic and I realized that...holy shit. It's been a year since things stopped being normal for me. And the last six months have been the worst of my life.

It's been a nonstop rollercoaster, and dear gods I need OFF already.
I'll attempt to elaborate when I have more time and less exhaustion, but given my track record of late...yeah. Let's hope it's sometime this year.

Bit late, but... [Dec. 3rd, 2008|09:12 pm]
...well. Still alive.

Suffice it to say there's been reasons I haven't been able to say that before.
It's...been a while. A lot's happened.

Saying that's it's been a bit rough for me lately is...wholly understating things. We'll see if I can manage more coherent later.

Eheh. [Jul. 16th, 2008|12:04 pm]
So, ah...I have been informed that it is a very good idea to keep letting you guys know I'm not dead.
If you want to know how my life's been going...well. Um. Sadly enough, this pretty much covers most of the last couple months.
