That should do it. · 9:27pm Oct 29th, 2022

I had three stories on the 30-minute pony site which were never published here. They are now.

In 2015, many of the projects I had been halfheartedly working on since I got into ponies in 2011 and should have finished by then died when my computer did.

A couple years ago, I found an old flash drive which had copies of some of the stories on it.

What does that mean? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN!?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT THAT MEANS!

NOTHING!!

Looks like the Big Brain BBQ is being postponed until they see how well Lorlatinib deals with the unwelcome guests in my skull.

I've been taking it a little over a week and I think I've noticed an improvement. I know I feel physically better than I did on my old drug, and my mind's been feeling a little clearer, too.

Health Update · 8:20pm Oct 16th, 2022

So after almost five years of living with cancer, I got told on Sep. 29th that there was a spot on one of my MRIs which was 'probably nothing'. Then they told me I had three tumors on my brain and said zapping them individually would be easy.

Then they woke me up with a phone call on Oct. 3 (my 40th birthday) and told me there were fourteen 'nothings' and I'd have to go 30 miles to Nashville where there was a better tumor-zapping machine.

Good news, I'm alive! · 5:49am Jul 10th, 2019

So, at the time of my last blog I not only had cancer, but I was also suffering from pneumonia. This was the week after my first hospital visit, where they basically did a bunch of tests and gave me risky heart surgery because there was a sac full of fluid crushing it.

So, it's been a few years... · 4:07am Feb 26th, 2018

Anything new with you?

Me, i'm dying.

Long story short I went to the doctor for what I thought was sciatica and turned out to be stage 4 lung cancer that had metastasized throughout my whole body and reached my back. I never smoked. I never hung out around smokers. It's just one of those things.

I've got 3-6 months left, apparently, though I plan to fight for more.

Does anyone remember me? Will anyone remember me?

Well, that was ghastly. · 10:07pm Jun 23rd, 2014

I switched from my old gas station job to one inside the store doing night stocking.

Bookplayer's original post

Some of these have two answers. The ones in italics apply to certain fanfics I might never publish/finish at the rate I'm going.

The Princesses:

1. How old are Celestia and Luna?

Thousands of years, with Luna still being the equivalent of a teenager.

...And I couldn't make myself write anything for the last prompt.

I guess it's a little like being at a funeral and someone asking you to say something about the deceased when all you are is tired and feeling hopeless and wishing there was something you could do/could have done. I think of all the prompts I missed because of work or taking too long or not coming up with ideas until it was too late or whatever, and now it's too late for good.

Curse you, postal service! · 9:31am Dec 14th, 2013

I am, regrettably, in Tennessee.

The package I ordered started in North Carolina, moved to Georgia, leapfrogged over my entire state to Kentucky, and then apparently decided it wanted to run away and hang out in Pennsyl-friggin'-vania.

That settles it. NOBODY wants to be here.
