    Movie review: "First Man"

    So, last night I went to see "First Man". It's a movie about:

    (1) a man who can't deal with his own emotions, and really can't deal with other human beings when under stress;

    (2) how wide Claire Foy can dilate her pupils; and

    (3) how Buzz Aldrin was a completely gratuitous dick, even more so than history records.

    I'm learning to hate the word "except" right now.

    The cardiologist says my tests came back normal- no clots, no heart swelling, full clear flow, strong pumping, nothing abnormal... except.

    No chapter of Maretian tonight...

    ... due to serious computer issues. Signs point to the swap partition on my desktop being borked.

    Will try to write tomorrow, but it's been a long day here.

    The testing

    My last twenty-four hours.

    Drink too much liquid yesterday as a substitute for food because I wasn't allowed caffeine within 24 hours of the stress test, including chocolate, and my headache made me feel like not cooking fresh, which left me only TV dinners with chocolate in.

    Tried to get to bed early. Failed. Repeatedly. Slept terrible all night, including getting up twice to pee.

    Update on the heart thing...

    ... this morning I got a phone call from the cardiology clinic where I'm due to have a stress test with ultrasound.

    My insurance covers 70% of the procedure... which leaves me with $603 to pay. In advance.

    That's half a month's bills. Hell, that's my total profit from an average (for me) convention.

So, apparently I won a thing. · 1:20am April 23rd

So, For Love of the Love of the Game won the Pinkie Pie award for comedy... after, I'm told, originally being in the running for the Rainbow Dash award for awesomeness.

Which is fair, because I was going for either one. I could also make a weak case for the Twilight Sparkle Attention to Detail or the Fluttershy D'aww.

But not the Rarity Elegance, because the story is possibly Rarity's least elegant moment.

Anyway, thanks to the judges, and thank to the readers (even the one person who downvoted it).

Congrats! It definitely earned the Pinkie.

Hell, it deserved the trophy, in spades. Great work!

I may not have LOL'ed, but I definitely enjoyed it. Rarity may have a promising career if the fashion industry ever tanks... :pinkiehappy:

Congratulations! I'm happy for you and I can't wait to read the story!
