For what it's worth, I'm still here. I still check my Friends page on a regular basis, but I rarely comment or interact with others. Obviously, I should post more, but I have a feeling that's not going to happen very much any more. I've fallen out of the habit of doing so and so has most of the rest of fandom, except a select few.

If you follow me on Tumblr, you know most of my life has been taken over by Emmerdale, which is England's third most watched soap opera, and the character of Aaron Livesy. He is basically the definition of a woobie and a beautiful cinnamon role, too good for this world, too pure.

Other than that, life has been pretty chill. I'm still in NYC, and I'm figuring out what the next step of my career is. Not dating anyone, and I go between desperately wanting someone else in my life along those lines and thinking I don't need anyone at all, so who knows what's going on in that department.

If you're reading this, my best to you. This is not a goodbye post, merely a "I probably won't update for another year or so" post.

But I am still here.

I'm still alive, I promise!

Lots of stuff going on, and Tumblr is still easier to update on a more regular basis, which is why I haven't updated since March. Whoops. I'm still working with the theatre company and I'm still temping. Actually I'm back temping at the children's cosmetic company I was at last summer, which is a story all in itself that I should sit down and write because it's horrific. We've got a summer full of productions and I hope I'll survive. It's already hotter than hell outside, so with all my luck I'll melt before the summer is over.

It's hot, it's muggy, and I'm slightly nauseous from the medication I'm on. After 3+ weeks of struggling with congestion and a terrible cough, I finally made myself go to the clinic and got enough antibiotics to kill whatever was in my system. I'm already feeling loads better, so hopefully by the end of the 10 day course, I'll be fully recovered.

I'm also still recovering from the series finale of Smash. God, that show was so bad and yet it did so many things to my emotions. The music was phenomenal, the acting (minus one notable person) was brilliant despite the wonky scripts and mind boggling plotlines, and the concept was something that hadn't been seen on TV in a long time. It's a shame that the failure of Smash means that no TV network will attempt another show like it for a LONG time. Also, I still maintain that Tom Levitt is one of the best gay characters on TV of all time. (OF ALL TIME.)

Also, why isn't there a drop down menu for my tags? I can't remember all that off the top of my head!

  • Night shift wasn't bad. Business usually slows down during the colder months, and if you combine that with the construction (which has taken out half of our lights, making it look like we're closed) it's no wonder we didn't have much business. We only had one customer in the hour before closing, so everything got done quickly and I was home before midnight.
  • Comics! The solicits for Children's Crusade have me worried beyond all belief for the rest of the series, but fingers crossed everything will turn out relatively all right. As long as Wanda is alive and not mistreated by the end of the series, I'll be happy. X-Factor's still keeping me happy. As I'm sure you've all noticed, I'm a big fan of soap opera drama, and recent happenings in X-Factor are right along those lines. My only issue is that can't wait until Emanuela Lupacchino comes back. I don't mind Leonard Kirk's art, but I like Emanuela's a lot better. I read Wolverine and the X-Men #1 today through dubious sources (;-) ) and wow, was that a fun comic or what? The art was great, the story was amusing and it just flowed the whole way until the end. I'm definitely buying this series. There's a hole in my pull list now that Alpha Flight got downgraded back to a miniseries, and once Children's Crusade finishes, there'll be another hole to fill.
  • Speaking of Emanuela, she's on Twitter now, as well as her inker Guillermo Ortego! I met him at NYCC and he's a great guy, so go follow her and go follow him too!
  • Also, I ate coconut M&M's. They're... interesting. I like coconut, but they're almost too strong for me.
  • As I was listening to music before work yesterday, I got an idea for NaNoWriMo. An idea that will require extensive planning and research. And it's five days before November. Should I attempt it? Anyone want to listen to some of my blather? Once I get everything else I wanted to get done today, I think I'll write up some of my ideas and see if they take shape.
  • (OH COME ON. PAD just posted on Facebook, saying no one online has come close to guessing what happens at the end of X-Factor #227. This had better be the biggest mind trip of the century, that's all I'm saying.)

Speed post! I'm on vacation now at tamakito 's and it's glorious. It's nice to have time off and not have to go to work, but it's going to be terrible to go back. Luckily I don't have to think about that right now. Now, off to do more hanging out and watching movies and stuff. Will attempt a longer post later in the week.

I just watched Torchwood Children of Earth Day Five for the first time. I am not kidding. When it originally aired in the UK, I watched Day Four, got annoyed with how that ended, heard the spoilers for Day Five once it aired, and never watched it. Until now.

I think I need a hug.

Actually, I think I need about a million hugs.

Is it Spring Break yet?

[EDIT] And I'm going to add something I posted on Tumblr this weekend because it summarizes my thoughts quite nicely: Between the GOP’s attacks on just about everything I care about, the uncertaintly of my own future, and these terrible natural disasters, I’m legitimately terrified right now. What on Earth is going on here?

If you had the power, would you permanently eliminate Valentine's Day?

No, because then all the chocolate companies, flower shops, and gift card stores would go out of business and we'd have another economic crisis on our hands.
