Today I was out walking
when I had a brief flash
and saw the people I was passing
as collections of cells gathered together into muscles
pulling against the bones that they grew for some cells to live inside
slithering against each other like a bucket of live eels

And it was kind of beautiful.

Is it time again? Sorta seems to be. I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.

Hi, I'm Peggy, and I run dragon.style. If "maintaining a Patreon to pay the hosting, putting off updating it for a year, and occasionally opening the place up for new users" qualifies as "running" it.

I am a trans lady who spends most of her time drawing complicated sci-fi comics and sort of earning a living doing that via Patreon.

Adobe Illustrator has been my main medium since 2000, it's a pretty unusual choice but it works for me.

I used to do burlesque, then pole dance, as a hobby and a way to stay fit. I miss it and should find something similar again.

You may know me from elsewhere as Egypt Urnash.

I just took down the canvas print of this picture that’s been hanging on the inside of my front door for most of the time I’ve been living in this apartment. Damn that made the “I don’t live here any more” factor go WAY up.

tfw a book full of material claiming to be channeled from an entity responding to the name God lines up oddly precisely with stuff expanding on words claiming to be channeled from an entity responding to the name Apep

or at least I think it did, gotta go back and re-read the relevant passages of both books back-to-back.

Guys I think I am gonna need sone backup on this Goddess Caffenia, I am pretty sure she’s nowhere in Bullfinch’s ya know?

Sadness Pile Update: Safely contained in boxes with no further emotional involvement. I might even have enough energy to pack up some of the rest of the living room after getting home from the doctor’s appointment I’m on my way to right now.

My hope is that I will start dealing with some of this stuff once I’m back in New Orleans. I just have not had the energy to do it here in this frozen grey place.

"I'm going to tackle the Pile Of Sadness today!" I said.

I opened up a diary my mom kept on and off, read a few entries in her practiced cursive, was overwhelmed by sadness, and fled to the furthest corner of the apartment. Damnit. Do not try to analyze the contents of the Pile of Sadness, Peggy. Just put it in a box for later.

Welcome to the dystopian future, where even homeless people you meet at your recycling bin have YouTube channels.

Two emails in a row about the shelves I put up on Craigslist yesterday that have very very different names on the email account than the names they're saying in the body of the email. Why do I get the feeling they're gonna want to pay in some convoluted way.

Plus the people who were gonna get the glass coffee table and the computer desk yesterday and today changed their minds yesterday. Clearly I have done something to offend His Craigness.

Emptying out the living room closet means I am looking at all of my stuff for cons and wondering if I really want to keep it. Will I ever sit behind another con table again? I kinda burnt out on it the last few years.

The Gulf South con scene probably has a lot of folks who don’t know that they want Rita or my Tarot deck in their life, though. I’m keeping at least some of this stuff.

A motley assortment of things marked FREE.

that special feeling when you try to remember the name of your new doctor and the 'providers' page of the clinic is populated by Javascript, which also hides everything it adds after about three seconds

countrydoctor.org/providers/

(tested on OSX Safari/Firefox/Chrome, also on iPad Safari, dang)

It has become clear that there is no way I am going to get all my shit dealt with by the original flight I got, so I moved it back a week. And got like fifty bucks *BACK* due to Southwest's super-lenient change policies, dang.

There is just too much crap in this apartment that I need to pick up, consider, and dump in a box or on the curb or in the trash. Especially when I keep having to take breaks to let my sinuses recover after all the dust I keep kicking up.
