Me: *gets through the last episode of Brooklyn 99 available through the library*

Me: Noooooooooo!

Me: I'm not ready to be stuck streaming episodes yet!

Me: Oh, well. I guess I could try Parks and Rec, since I did happen to pick up the first three seasons at a Bookmobile garage sale fundraiser today. I mean, it is by some of the same people, and I've heard fantastic things about it. And it's complete, so there won't be any cliffhanger BS. I bet I'll love it!

Me: *puts first DVD in to play*

DVD: *immediately starts with documentary-style storytelling and shakycam footage*

Me: Noooooooooo!

Seriously though, shakycam style makes me feel dizzy :( I had to turn it off. And I guess I don't care much for fake-documentary-style storytelling either? IDK, it's like it's dancing right over a line between actual documentaries and reality TV that my brain insists shouldn't be crossed.

On the plus side, I got Petal Dance scanned and fixed up and almost ready to print, my Accessibility Dept sign is scanned and one-third colored, and my next coloring page, Own Tempo (or possibly Teeter Dance? Featuring a Spinda playing a tambourine), is finished inking, so that's some serious productivity right there :3b

Next up, drawing-wise: A butterfly Pokemon inspecting a flower-y Pokemon ("Sweet Scent"; I'm leaning towards Butterfree/Beautifly and Floette) and a better rough sketch for the charity auction poster.

X-Men recs?

If I wanted to read X-Men with an emphasis on Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Emma Frost (not necessarily all at once--for example, I'd love to read about Emma all by herself), where are good places to look? Comics continuity confuses me. I read New X-Men a long time ago but that's pretty much where my knowledge begins and ends (unless you count the MMO, which I haven't played for some time because I don't have time to play computer games these days :p).

I prefer things I can get as trade collections because there's pretty much zero chance I can afford to chase down individual comics. XD

(This has been brought to you by wasting time by reading Cyclops' TV Tropes page.)

Today we went to Champaign for shopping.  The weather was mostly cool and pleasant.  Now it is warm, damp, and full of bugs.  >_<

Round 1, I planted two wave petunias, one in a pot and one in the barrel garden; plus a packet of chive seeds in the septic garden. 

EDIT 5/27/17: Round 2, my partner Doug raked grass and I helped haul it away.

EDIT 5/27/17: Round 3, I trimmed grass around about half of the wildflower garden.

Middle fucking way, my foot

More often than I'd care to admit, the Intern provokes some really strong emotional response in me. We have strong ups and downs, with deep and powerful emotional encounters both positive and negative.

We aren't dating and don't intend to do so again. But we still have these tempestuous eddies that neither of us seem to mind.

This is part of why I find the Quaker girl so appealing. She does not provoke the same deep emotional responses, but that feels good. It really feels nice not to travel to the extremes of both joy and anger for once. (I'm quite angry with the Intern right now, and it's fairly fresh. This means I'm more likely to curse about him.) There is something very powerful and soothing about having a more placid relationship in the middle way. Maybe this is more sane. Maybe this is more adult. Maybe this is the correct way of dealing. Maybe this is something I could sustain instead of a fiery passion that will burn out from lack of fuel.

At least that's what I'm telling myself. That the pleasant and peaceful conservation of energy that is the middle way might actually last a fucking lifetime.

I published a small game on itch.io! It's free and should take maybe ten minutes to play. It's not, like, groundbreaking, but I kept having this problem with RPG Maker where I wanted to make huuuuge sprawling games, and always lost track of myself.

So I forced myself to make a small game instead.

It has a beginning, middle, and end, and should be bug-free thanks to beta testing by [personal profile] tamagus, [personal profile] beemoji, and [personal profile] girlnamedlance. My heroes ♥♥

Garden is in

I spent the day putting in the garden: tomatoes, basil, green peppers, broccoli, parsley, cilantro (first time I'd tried it) and marigolds. All in containers, except the marigolds. I'm using the containers as a sort of quick "raised bed" so I don't have to do so much bending to weed and cultivate, and in the hopes that it will confuse the rabbits and squirrels. Marigolds I'm not worried about. Nothing eats marigolds, including me. They are just for decoration. And I watered everything using am empty gallon jug; containers need to be watered more. I have to find the garden hose - I know it's in the basement, somewhere.

It is now officially summer.

Okay, that part was not fluff

Today’s words: 1K of words on what a decade of chronic pain can do to your sex life and body image. *feels wrung out like a rag* Jesus. I mean, it’s in service of ultimate fluff, but that was some seriously NiF-level angst, there.

I think I need a drink.

To all the zero people currently subscribed to this journal: I did the thing. Sorry about the whole booting-you-off thing. I just really kind of hate that you can't prune your circle. I mean, I don't use Tumblr anymore, but softblocking was a godsend.

(I know that being subscribed to by someone who I don't want to be doesn't make my content vulnerable, and I know that force-unsubscribing someone doesn't provide me with any security. It's a personal preference I have.)

Anyway, I wanted to change my username regardless.

It's a genus of figwort.

And if you don't know me IRL, I'd really prefer if you referred to me as Zal from now on. \o/

I'd love to hear about your experiences! How did you take advantage of the four times as fast? What rock types did you catch? Did the recent nest migration benefit you?

I walked to evolve to: Jynx, Croconaw, Quilava, Meganium, Marowak, Kingler, Ninetails, and Wartortle.

My rock type catches to evolutions: Golem, Steelix, Rhydon, Omastar, Kabutops, Shuckle, and Magcargo.

I was able to evolve to Alakazam, thanks to my local nest.

And I caught a Yanma!

Recent egg hatches: Gligar! And enough Drowzee for a Hypno.

What I’ve been up to for the last couple months:

Over the years, my otherkin comic Theri There has suffered some link rot, so I went through and fixed it. Oh, and I found some more old pages of Theri There that I overlooked while migrating the archives to the new host, so I need to post those soon, too.

I just posted a sketch of Sythyry, and I have a few more drawings to post during the next few days.

I deleted the $9 reward tier on my Patreon. See my March newsletter about what happened with it.

Now I’ve got an account on Ko-fi, so if you’ve liked my creations, you can buy me a coffee.

I didn't put out many creations during the last couple months, because I was keeping myself very busy with getting a job. Good news: I got a job! Bad news: It's a while until the job starts, so I won't get my first paycheck until July. If you can chip in to my Patreon or Ko-fi, it'll help me make ends meet in the meantime.

I'm off on a work trip to Wuppertal, Germany -- so flying in to Dusseldorf. I've currently made it to YYZ, and have a few hours here to wait.

I did manage to sneak in a few hours of climbing this morning before my 4pm departure from Ottawa, which was sweet, as it was quite a nice day.
