My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

Reading right now

June 18th, 2012 | Category: Life,Opinions

So, with my face and other issues, I haven’t been reading like usual. I just haven’t had my focus. I’ve decided to really force myself.

Right now, I’m reading The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories, a comprehensive collection of weird fiction gathered by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. It’s not a tiny book, it’s thick enough to use as a weapon. It has stories by Borges, Bradbury, Lovecraft, all the greats you know, and have yet to know. I’m a third through, so a full-review is forthcoming. However, if you don’t need a ton of convincing, just go ahead and buy it. It’s definitely worth the cash.

More regarding my face

June 17th, 2012 | Category: Life

I’ve turned into an Elliott Smith lyric, I have a broken sink for a face. Basically, my doctor thinks a nerve in my face is aggravated, it’s constantly firing pain signals. So, I’m on Dilaudid for the immediate pain, and this anti-seizure medicine that will hopefully, eventually, make that nerve stop its mis-firing. The Dilaudid fucks up my stomach, so I’m kind of sticking to liquids, tomato soup, warm chocolate soy milk. Solid food holds very little appeal to me just now. The anti-seizure medicine grogs me out, so my focus is pretty shot. Still, the pain is better and my doctors (all 47 of them) are confidant that covering the pain while calming the nerve, will eventually heal the nerve.

The whole affair is exhausting, I feel like I’m disappearing.

Bye spam!

June 17th, 2012 | Category: Life

Well, I fixed the spam issue. Apparently, WordPress 3.4 didn’t re-activate my plug-ins after installation, so all my fancy filters and mods weren’t around to protect me.

This is me trying to get back into writing.

Spam-fest 2012

June 16th, 2012 | Category: Life

So, ever since I upgraded to WordPress 3.4 my fading little blog is spam-city. I have no idea why, but I’m getting AT LEAST 10 spam comments a day. It’s crazy. At first it was exciting, a surge in comments, but then I remembered that I write nothing of value, so a comment surge is obviously unlikely.

Now, I’m just annoyed.

My little peanut

So, we recently picked up two dogs, a rescue Clumber, and a little tiny Boykin puppy. Sophie, the tiny one, she’s my little peanut. I picked her, named her, and weirdly, it’s like she knows. She loves my room, jumping all over me, nodding off on my chest. She’s a good girl.

This video should have been shot in landscape-mode, iPhone users forget you can turn the phone sideways. Still, it’s 720p HD!

More on my face

June 07th, 2012 | Category: Life

So, my face still hurts. We have yet to figure WHY it hurts, so we can’t fix it. I’m seeing hea pain doctor today, hopefully he can suggest a medicine that actually works, so I can at least function until we find a permanent solution, if a permanent solution even exists. I don’t know. Who knows?
