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.

Distressing books. · 3:53am Oct 12th, 2013

My sister's helping with production on a student movie, and they need a bunch of old-looking, torn-up books.

I tore one in half and a bunch of dead bugs and mold came out all over me.

I think I'm done for the night.

The person who invented "Undo System Restore" is a holy and blameless being touched by the hand of God.

Advice I gave myself today that I should have followed... · 1:23am Jul 15th, 2013

Love your favorite authors, and respect the fact that their opinions on certain matters may be different from yours.

Avoid their tumblrs/non-fic related blogs at all costs. They segregate those opinions for a reason.
