Yes, Yes I am. I've been meaning to write another blog post for a while to explain my absence, but all manner of things happened.

First, I've been spending a lot of time over on my personal blog: eclecticandeccentric.blogspot.…. I've been spending a lot of time on many blogs, starting to become part of a literary-ish community, in the hopes that it will help me in my writing. I know there are literary-ish communities here, but for some reason expanding out into the wider Interwebz is helping.

Which leads to why I've been putting off this post.

First off, we've been having financial difficulties for a while. I won't go into detail, but needless to say that had been weighing on my mind and affecting my work. For a couple weeks we were eating a lot of ramen, let's just say. I've been dealing with Seasonal Affective Disorder, and trying to take Vitamin D in the hopes of staving off the worst of it, but there are still some days where I feel like doing nothing other than lying in bed all day and staring at the ceiling (and not in the "oh, I'd like to daydream" way. More in the "what's the use of getting up?" way). Then, Christmas happened, with all that stress, and then we moved. I was sick during the move, and it was snowing and cold, and I wound up developing pneumonia and being sick for two weeks. Add in a now hour-long commute to and from work and horrid weather, and you have a somewhat unhappy me.

Don't get me wrong. I'm aware that my life right now is pretty damn good. But I'm also highly sensitive to change, and aware of my own tendency toward becoming depressed (if not clinically depressed, at least "down"), and I can tell all that is affecting me. Even writing about it is sort of getting me down again, so let's move on to happier things.

Our place is bigger. We have an upstairs, and running up and down the stairs numerous times a day has actually helped me get more exercise than usual. The cats are loving it too. (Oreo is no longer fat! LOLWUT.) Frenzy is currently hiding in the non-working dumbwaiter. We've had male cats hanging around outside for weeks, so I think we'll have to knuckle down and shell out the money to get her spayed before she slips outside and comes back with kittens.

I've discovered Doctor Who. WONDERFUL GLORIOUS ADDICTIVE DOCTOR WHO. I actually started with the 60's one. We're currently on the Third Doctor. We'll catch up. Just you wait.

Now that I'm faced with the decision to commute an hour every for part time work I love, or get a closer full-time job doing data entry, I'm realizing more and more how much I love working at a library.

I've discovered quite a liking for writing horror. Whether or not it's any good is anyone's guess.

Okay. I'm feeling better again.

So some of my stories will be stopped. I think I'll continue my sci-fi story here, although I might repost it over on my blog as well. I'll start posting photos again soon. I've gotten some pretty cool ones lately. 100 Themes will be over on my personal blog, along with all my book and movie reviews (and occasional nonsense).

So, if you want, come hang out on my blog, shout at me, or say nonsense words and see if I respond in kind.


(Have I mentioned Daleks are awesome? Because Daleks are awesome.)

Oh, I saw it all right. Had a bit of a spaz fit.

Still makes me twitch a little, but it's not as bad as at first when I was leaping through the house squeeing. :XD:
SO whats the story? I saw Slendy, but there were also some zombie people too.
I think those were "proxies", people under his control, kinda like the masked guy in Marble Hornets. They haven't revealed the story line yet, so who knows what they've come up with. Probably something pants-wettingly horrifying, no doubt.
