My days are too long and stressy!


Well, the first of our “scheduled” updates is posted… I think we'll try doing tattoos on Mondays, ritual, scarification, and culture on Tuesday, experiences on Wednesday, piercing on Thursday, and members stuff on Fridays… Video I'll probably try and make a weekend thing but I'm not sure yet. We're still playing a bit of catch up, so the updates will be slightly smaller than usual this week. Thanks to the brilliant Wayde (mentioned for his skull and crossbones thumb scar among other things on ModBlog — which was also updated today if you're a reader.)

Also, I hate to be whorish about this, but over the last week our billing system has been malfunctioning (and thus always failing and telling people their cards didn't work), so some of you may have been falsely expired or had your attempt to sign up fail during that period. If you've been planning on picking up a membership to the main site, especially with adding the NAS and having to pick up a couple more pieces for growth, now is a time I'd really appreciate the help. Click here for that. It is genuinely appreciated.

Anyway, other than that I am in the process of transitioning my anti-depressant (about 95% out of my system now) to a mood stabilizer (ramping up the dosage), and phasing out my anti-convulsant (I have tremors, physical tension, and stress seizures). Right now it's a hard period because all my dosages are


so low so it's easy for some of the old cloud to return, but I'm staying on top of it. Plus I really have been through some truly through-the-roof stress over the past while, so I think even a “normal” person would have some trouble. Other than that, I watched Big Fish (again) with Jon and Saira (and Michael for the second half). I really love that movie, I feel I can relate to the “That's all I do, Will, I tell stories.” argument, as someone who loves telling stories about my life that I think get more and more exciting as I grow older, but still grow from a quite bizarre reality.

They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops. And that's true. What they don't tell you, is that once time starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up.

Then I made Jon watch Armageddon (he's never seen it), but he eventually walked out on it with fifteen minutes left in the film. I'm just finishing up some stuff (I plan on sleeping in if I can, at least a little) and continuing the bad comet apocalypse movie trend with Deep Impact.

Um, and I was thinking about how nice the bathrooms are at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Maui (credit to Rachel for that one)… If and when I eventually build or reno a house, I'm going to create one hell of a bathroom! Well, I think I'm going to go post a couple kit cars and crash out.

Oh, and tomorrow I'm going to start experimenting with encaustic painting (which is painting with wax)… I'm doing some experiments including using unusual pigments and waxes, and playing with non-co-soluable paints to create “vein” running through a transluscent medium… It should be interesting because it'll either make the painting I'm working on amazing piece, or it'll make it a nightmare to fix (or both I imagine, ha). That and video work and some programming.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
