I do nothing of merit. On occasion, I give the impression of being creative, but this is a deception. I am merely derivative in clever ways.

    Dropping in to try and find some art

    So my hard drive bricked back in the fall, and I finally replaced my computer with the stimulus money. But I don't really have a good way to try and recover the stuff that was on there, so that sucks.

    But, I was hoping for some help in finding one particular bit of pony art that I haven't been able to dig up again since then.

    Welp, that's just... everything fucked, I guess

    So back around June 20, I wrecked my car.

    Then back on August 28, the tires on my wife's car got torn up hitting something on the road, and we wound up needing all new tires.

    I don't think my cat likes my work

    So it's been a struggle to write anything, for various reasons, but I *was* trying to get back onto Legacy Ch 4 not long ago.

    Then today I was sitting at the table and started hearing faint tearing noises from behind me. I turned around and discovered that somehow my rough draft had wound up on the floor and the cat had done this:

    Random Encounter

    This was a fun moment. Choppy cause I had to remove a bunch of game speech commands and the usual bit of racist shit-talking.

    Also this was before I found out Scribbler did another reading of my stuff. I would have probably said that instead of RCL.

So, recently, Asilin and I learned that our air conditioning unit was years older than we were told when we bought our house, and pretty much shot. This was just it time for summer to really pick up, so we've been sitting through over-90° heat for a couple weeks without any A/C. Then we found out the repairs would be just shy of $4,000, because the indoor unit and attached furnace were equally bad. However, we then found out our homeowner's insurance would do a partial repair, enough to get us through the summer, and would only cost us $370.

But that can't be done until Monday, so we've mostly been hanging out in the basement office/storage area because it's about 10 degrees colder than upstairs, and just trying to ignore all the bugs that get in down here.

However, soon after finding out about those things, I learned that the noise from the back of my car was due to a brake caliper jamming. The brake pad and rotor were in constant contact, and both had worn down to the bare metal. They were ruined, and would need to be replaced. The front brakes were bad, too, and adding those in brought the grand total up to about $750.

It feels like we've been swerving from one crisis to the next since the start of the year. This kind of shit is why I wind up stressed, depressed, and in no mood to write.



In other news, Asilin got Child Of Light on Steam. We have since learned it is also on Ubisoft's Uplay service, and you have to be on both services simultaneously to play it. Also, Uplay's recaptcha is horribly broken, and was the cause of a great deal of stress.

All in all, Uplay is kinda retarded.
