When I rearrange my bookcase. I figure I'd post some shots where you can see each shelf this time.

Let me tell you about the most passive aggressive gift I've ever received. It was s stationary set from my Aunt Helen. So I could write her a thank you note with said stationary. Except it was so beautiful that my OCD didn't want to mess it up and there were only so many of each variety that I never used it. Instead I looked at it. So that's a gift wasted.

Now, I can look forward to a important day. My birthday. What? You thought I was going to say, yeah well I get presents too, but I also get presents on my birthday and it's a me day versus think of everyone else while getting a present and than being told you have to write a thank you card and you have no idea. And why the heck should I write one. I just thanked the person. I'm thanking her twice.
My Sherlock Holmes collection. Or why yes I am a nerd. A good portion of this is presents and from used book stores. The remainder from comic shops and regular book stores bought with gift cards, birthday money, and discounts thanks to my membership card which I've had since Barnes and Noble started the program.

Making good progress on my Smaug fan art if anyone wants to see.
But turns around and denies us said freedom. When we're kids, we can't have fun, we need to shut the fuck up and go to school with kids we hate who bully us because they hate us just as much. And that's under the pretense of going to college. And when we're in college we have the dubious pleasure of being treated like children for four years, while we are legally adults. We had over tons of money and we can get kicked out for not doing our job. Maybe it's the teachers' fault. Also if it was a job, you'd get a salary. And you haven't had recess since elementary school.

You're sad because you're denied happiness. So you go to a doctor who gives you happy pills. Those make you fat, so the people of the world can say that you're just a lazy fattie who eats a lot. And you're sad because you remember happiness and a thin body that could cartwheel forever and you loved that body. And then you become an adult in the workforce.

And they tell you you have to save for retirement which is decades away. You're once again not allowed to be happy. And when you're old, that money isn't enough anyway unless you're rich, so you have to live off welfare or your kids or look foreword to death.

It is just me that sees the flaw in the system? Why should the me of now be unhappy for the hypothetical future me to be hypothetically happy. Screw pursuing happiness. I'll never catch up. I'd rather bask in happiness, thank you very much. I want to enjoy the fruits of happiness. I want happiness to be my right. Not just the right to fight for it. And I get it, working is important, but putting that much aside is probably screwing the economy over in the first place. Spending money helps the economy more than having it sit around doing nothing.

Oh for God's sake, everyone who has ever commented on a House MD message board or any article about said show...

It's spelled Paraneoplastic Syndrome. Like it sounds. Not that hard. Not Perennial or Paranal Classic.

Today I'm gettting over a UTI so I'm chilling out and taking a break from looking for a job. Focusing for the day on getting better. Did apply for jobs in the morning. Right now I'm playing Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies.

Someone posted a really nice comment on one of my fics on AAO3. They liked it and liked that I was writing in the obscure Sherlock Holmes universes. And they gave me an invite to post in their community for that sort of thing yay.

I'm not the most popular author out there, but I like to think I'm someone's favorite thing versus someone'a they'll read it because it's there. I think maybe that's why mom keeps trying to get me to write something original and publish it. But right now I don't feel comfortable. It's not like I don't have some original works in progress. It's just at this point in my life, I feel like my writing is best left to being a hobby. I've published things before but they've just been for school papers and school collections of short stories.

Also my OCD is all no, if you do this, people will hate you. And then they will burn your house down and you'll be inside of it. Yes, I know how irrational that sounds. I don't pick and choose my thoughts. Or the method in which to deal with them. Which is why if you just like order a lot, but aren't doing it because of a disturbing thought you had and that was the only way to make that thought go away for a little bit, you don't have OCD. You're just like everybody else.

For example, I check the weather a lot. Everyone does, I hear you say. But does everyone have four weather apps to compare data and a weather radio glued to their hip because the day they don't is the day the tornaodo hits and now they've convinced themselves tornadoes are afraid of them and the only things with the gumption to stand up are hailstones. No? Because I do.

But yeah, the day the worry goes away, I might. But still part of me goes, but I don't want to.

So it is morning and I could choose to eat leftover biscuits and drink hot tea or be a dork and eat the leftover potato and drink Red Bull and pretend I am stranded on Mars.

Biscuits for Dinner, yes.

Guess who has two thumbs and is working on Act Three of Tne Spark after how many years again?

So yeah, Act III: The Big Bang and the Bigger Joke is being typed right now and I hope to get Act IV: For no Diana do I Play Faun out in a few days to a week considering I'm in good health and not battling horrible writer's block that lasted years. But that actually played out in my favor since HIMYM ended. I can now keep the fic 100% canon compliant.

So, coming to An Archive of Our Own, The Spark. The rest of it. Now featuring more psychological trauma, more picking at that damned rough patch than you can throw an fat suit at, more proof Ted Mosby is a shithead, and more proof that I'm secretly evil.

And to be concluded in the final chapter Felina: She's Already Won

There are no happy endings. But you knew that already.

I've created so much art that it's ridiculous. Now if only I could apply that to my writing.

I've been busy, but I hope to get on track with completing all the stuff I said I would. Plants in the City and Synesthesia are not dead. I've expanded into other fandoms, the results of said expanding can be found in my journal and in my Archive of Our Own account.

Okay, so to catch people up on things, I'm now 34, still don't look it. I finally got diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos syndrome. Recently I've been able to come out to my family. They don't mind and hope I will find a good wife. So fingers crossed. So far I've managed to participate in Every Come at Once fic writing fests, so yay me.

We recently got hit by a butt load of hail, but we're fine, the roof may have taken damage but our cars are full of dents, although no windows are broken. Meanwhile Zero Hour Dilemma cannot come out fast enough.

And it looks like Sherlock Series Four is going to come out before DHSAB 2.
For Christmas, I got lessons. I'm working on a blanket as my first project. Meanwhile I'm listening to musical soundtracks like Hamilton, Heathers, A Very Potter Musical, Reefer Madness, Galavant, First Date, etc...

I'm planning on taking a picture when I finish. Anyone interested in seeing it?
I've been busy with my job and under the weather. It turns out I have gallstones and I need surgery tomorrow to have my gallbladder removed. Right now I'm in a lot of pain.
