update of sorts

Well I've been sick with a nasty stomach virus for the past few days.  Today is the first day that I don't feel completely awful so I think it's run it's course.  I basically slept most of the day yesterday, and last night.  I'm feeling a bit better today at least.  

As for other things I've started playing Half-Life 2 on steam, and I'm enjoying it so far.  I've been meaning to play this game for a while since I enjoy quite a few fps games, but I don't have an Xbox, or a PS3 so I figured I'd play it on PC.  It's probably one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had with an older fps game.  I played it for a few hours yesterday, and plan on playing it a bit today.

As for other things I bought a new set of drawing pencils so I plan on drawing more stuff again.  I go through long periods of artist block due to depression, but I finally feel like I want to start drawing again.  Art school actually sort of burned me out on doing my own work as well since I was working so hard to finish my portfolio.  I'm glad I got past that phase a bit, and I plan to start some new projects soon.

That's all for now.  I'm going to go browse youtube, and play a few games.  


Transcendent, the anthology

If you want to read an anthology of speculative fiction testing the boundaries, I recommend Transcendent.

I ripped out one of the stories and tossed it in the trash, because it was written by a fandom bully who hounded [personal profile] hesychasm, among many others. hesychasm has written about them here. But genuinely enjoyed the rest, some of them tremendously. (I'm still thinking of Red, and Joash, and the time-travellers.)

Name: Lucy
Age: 38
Location: Wales, UK

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm Lucy, I'm a 38-year old woman who is trying to figure out this whole 'life' thing. I'm bisexual and poly, living in Wales with my partners. I'm a home maker, love to bake and cook, and am a huge sci-fi fan. I really enjoy playing board games, I'm learning to knit, trying to learn German and I'm also a little obsessed with journals/planners right now.

Top 5 fandoms: OK as of right now? Doctor Who, Stargate, Marvel/DC, MacGyver and Lucifer. There's loads more and I will happily chat your ears off about the things I love :)

I mostly post about: My family, mental health, movies/tv and just... life in general

I rarely post about: I always try not to post about politics and religion. I was always taught never to discuss them.

My three last posts were about: Star Trek Discovery, moving house, a random compliment from one of my partners.

How often do you post? Usually a couple of times a week but I've been absent recently due to moving house

How about commenting? Probably about 75% of the time, if I've got something to say, I'll say it :)

No time to watch yet, wedding and work, plus my father in town, but I just purchased an annual CBS "All Access" subscription so I can immerse myself in Star Trek: Discovery for the next few weeks, and in The Good Fight come 2018.

I really wish the television model were different, though. Not because of the money; I purchase shows on iTunes consistently (Wynonna Earp, Killjoys, Orphan Black, iZombie). But I worry that the no-network model of CBS here means the opposite of its name: less access to smart, well-written, diverse, and feminist shows for normal people who aren't able to drop yet more money on a limited slice of entertainment, good as it may be.

Please send love and virtual hugs. Also, punch a nazi for me, or ten.

 I recently stumbled across Eclipse Phase, and the idea of a transhuman space-faring RPG really intrigued me. Has anyone else had experience running it? I haven't seen much about it online other than on their official forums.

One week and six days, rather. Time is certainly passing quickly. (See the countdown here.) All pinch hits are currently claimed, and you all have done a spectacular job staying on top of those, so thank you (and thank you, [personal profile] withinadream), but keep watching for more, just in case. Beta readers are always appreciated, too, and keep your eyeballs on those Dear Creator letters. Not quite to the home stretch yet, but ... soon, soon!

For two bisexuals, my wife and I sure tick a lot of the lesbian boxes*. The one thing I regret about yesterday's wedding celebration up in Tilden Park, on a golden fall Saturday in Berkeley, is that we didn't get to pin a note to our little board with the photos and such, to remind people of Bi Visibility Day.

* A love for cats, hardware stores, tea,...

I'll post photos when they come in -- my former work wife took some GREAT ones, obviously already posted with acerbic commentary to social media. Ah. I miss her snark. My wife's sister-in-law, one of them, took photos with a nice DSLR, and I got a few shots in.

(I have hundreds of icons, but this is the singular one of two queer women together and alive by the end of canon -- skins' Naomi and Emily.)
