Today, June 13th, I reached Level 50 in this biological game of Life. As a punk from the 80s, I didn't think I'd make it this far*, and twenty years ago, I nearly took my own life. I certainly didn't think I'd be alone and childless in this journey, but here I am, doing my… Continue reading Achievement Unlocked: Demigod – Year 50
Hey. I know. I've been quiet. I've had a lot going on in my life. I'll eventually get to the point in which I'll share it with the world, but for now, I need quiet. I need distance. I need solitude. I need peace. I haven't forgotten about you, though. I see you from afar.… Continue reading A Drop in Time
I read a blog post the other day that made me realize just how lucky I am that my mother is still here, and it caused a calm-before-the-storm shuddering-standstill reaction from me. I broke. In 2007, Umi had a Pulmonary Embolism. I knew it was serious then, and I drive her to her INR appointments every… Continue reading Silent Killers
One of the things about working full time at my age with everything I have to deal with on a health level on top of Umi's health crises is that trying to promote anything regarding my books is daunting. It doesn't help that I've been on medications that affect the way I think for so long that… Continue reading Exhaustion
....you want me to go out? Social Anxiety! ACK! Yeah, it's a problem I have. I want to go hang out with friends, yet I don't because Oh My Fuck, I have to interact with people (strangers) and what if I say or do something stupid. I mean, I have no problem laughing at myself, but… Continue reading The Secret Life of Jinxie G: Part IV
...I'd like a fucking do-over, please, and yes, that includes my birthday. If you stalk follow me on the interwebz, you may be well aware of the month I had...and I didn't even share it ALL with the world. Oh yes, there's so much more, but I won't go into it because it's a private… Continue reading Dear June
...may be coming for you. In early 2010, right after I'd moved down to Tucson and in with my friend Heather a.k.a. Kitty, the Gallbladder of Doom struck her a month after it'd struck her sister CJ Redwine, and for two months, I took care of her. Since then, the Gallbladder of Doom has come… Continue reading The Gallbladder of Doom
...and I've missed an entire week of these, haven't I? Oh wait, I did one on Monday. Never mind. So Christmas has arrived and I don't know what the rest of you got for gifts, but you can't top a dragon! That's right, I got a dragon. I'm now the Mother of Dragons. Okay, his… Continue reading Happy Holidays!
...and it is the last Monday of this year I will be working. Woohoo! Good morning, minions! I wanted to take this moment to wish each of you a Happiest of Holidays and hope all wonderful things come your way. I'm grateful for you all! You keep me grounded. Thank you. That is all.
...because Life never plays fair, and if you play fair expecting Life to play fair back, that's like expecting the lion to not eat you because you didn't eat him. Yesterday, I forgot to post my gratto. It was Thanksgiving, after all, and I hope those of you who celebrate the holiday had a lovely… Continue reading If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Another
