It’s been a week since I blogged.  Who knew that blogging every day would be difficult?  Seriously, I need more hours in the day and I need my health to be better.  Maybe I should have some blog memes on stand-by for answering when I don’t feel up to putting together a real coherent blog with any meaning.

A few days ago we had a massive low pressure system come in.  Now, anyone with fibromyalgia knows that low pressure systems are not friends.  They are horrible things to be feared that bring with them the sort of pain that mere mortals should not experience.  This is the kind of pain you hear about on House where they put someone in a medically induced coma until the worst of the pain has subsided.  Ever watch the cartoon Fairly Oddparents?  Timmy isn’t allowed to use his fairy godparents to wish death on anyone but Cosmo is fond of saying, “But you would be surprised what you can live through.”  Yea, this kind of pain falls under that.  Now, most people have awesome pain meds and fibro drugs that spare them the worst of this.  Me…not so much.  My doctor and I really need to talk.  The new  pain med that he put me on after the Serotonin Syndrome incident doesn’t work.  Let me amend that.   It doesn’t work for what I need it to work for.  It works great for the pain in my neck, which nothing has touched to this point but that feels kind of like a consolation prize.  It doesn’t help with my hip pain so it’s very hard for me to get around.  During that low pressure, it did NOTHING for any of the pain.  NOTHING.  NADA.  ZIP.  ZILCH.  I was in enough pain to take down the toughest of Marines or a small elephant.  It was horrible.  I finally broke down and took the pain med that I was taken off of.  I couldn’t take the pain any more.  I tried.  I really did.

Two days after that my hip hurt so bad I woke up from the pain.  It was just as bad as the fibro pain during that low pressure only it was concentrated in one spot.  Worst part is it was so bad my topical Lidoderm pain patches that normally work really well for it didn’t touch it.

So, through all the pain of the last week I have been working on a couple of things.  The first is a new Magic the Gathering deck built around Psychosis Crawler.  I ordered a couple more cards for the deck and there are two others I want but I don’t know what to take out to put them in there.  Up until now my thing has been building tribal decks.  I have an elf deck, a dragon deck, a merfolk deck, a vampire deck, a gollum deck, a squirrel deck (still one of my favorites), an elemental deck, an ally deck and a soldier deck.  I am probably forgetting one.  The thing is, I want to do other stuff.  My artifact deck has turned into an artifact/portal/proliferate deck.  It’s pretty awesome, I just don’t know if I am happy with the creatures in it anymore because of what it does now.

Via the webcomic D20 Monkey, I came across a DnD dungeon delve called Revenge of the Lich.  I read through it and it’s awesome.  This is something I want to do.  I want to write campaigns.  I think I could do it.  I mean, I can write, I can tell stories and I DM.  I just know it’s going to take up time and I need to get a little better at managing my time before I take on stuff like this.

After all, I am still working on my SIFF entry…it’s got to be done by March 15 and it’s not going well.  I can’t get the footage I want and I still need to write the script.  I am also working on a building for a competition for the Sims International Literary Council (SILC).  I am a member of that and I think it’s going to be really cool once we get things off the ground.   Again, though, it’s something that is going to take my time away from me.  That’s okay though.

See, where I want to get to with my writing is not so much writing for other people, because some of the places and people that I have written for have made me insane and have taken away my joy of writing, but doing things I want to and making money from it.  That means making money from ad revenue from my blogs.  Maybe selling stories that I have written for a few dollars like a lot of erotica e-book sites do.  That sort of thing.  If anyone is interested, you can find my writing blog HERE.  There is poetry and short stories.  Some of those short stories you will need a password to get to.  It’s just the way it is.  If you want the password you need to be over 18 and email me for it.

I also have a Johnny Voodoo from Gobler Toys for sale if anyone is interested.  Price is $35.00 with shipping.  Email me at if interested.

Some info about Johnny:

  • His eyes glow in the dark
  • There were only 1000 of them made
  • Johnny is just totally awesome!!
  • Johnny Voodoo came from the same brilliant mind that came up with D-Rex, Fur Berries and Sing-a-ma-jigs!
