running, bomb tech


I know haven't been talking about things bothering me here. I probably couldn't even name the things that I know are bothering me that I haven't been talking about here, because if I'm not talking about them here, then I'm probably not talking about them in broadcast-mode at all, and possibly even not much in one-on-one mode.

This, of course, is going to lead to a buildup of stress of some sort or other, which is always stressful...

I'm not sure if I will talk about things as I realize they've been stressing me, or not. It's my call, and I may or may not choose to use it.

...if anyone who's chatted with me lately has insights as to what the hell my head has been up to, feel free to IM or e-mail, if it's not something I've been discussing in public...

My witchy document

I've got an 88k text document all on magicgeeking. I started it last week, formally, and I've been slacking some on it. Ooops.

The general focus is orientation to the new practitioner as well as orientation to the non-practitioner who may have family or friends who are practitioners or new practitioners.

So. Anything that you would have liked to know when you were new at this, or, if you are new at this, anything you would like to know (especially that current books you've run into don't cover)?

Ahh, life: writing group, stuff

Signs it's going to be a great day for writing: discovering that the document you started last week has fleshed itself out to 25 pages so far.

Signs it's going to be a bad day for discussing the magicgeeking document: when three out of the five people at the table have trouble processing the word "pagan". Signs it's going to be a very bad day for discussing it in any sort of detail: when some of them are "carefully accepting" of the entire concept, if shocked by it.

Needless to say, I didn't get very much of anywhere in discussing the thing, and then wound up turning back to the computer. At a few points, I was very ready to walk out, but that would not have been fair to easalle.

Things got better with the writing exercise. easalle had us paint a naked portrait of a character. I picked Dave from ectogenesis, and they wound up at CTY. I hadn't realized that Dave and Jeff were roommates that session. Evidently they were. I got some nice foreshadowing for the GI Joe Incident, too. It was a nice PG-13 rated nude scene, for bare butt, nonsexual context. Subtext! Subtext! No females all in this scene.

Slash, anyone?

Dinner was off, as the sole other regular person there had to go pick up people from work and all that. Came home on the bus. Discovered that there was an e-mail in my inbox -- I1 in G/Unk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, ultimately, happiness. Here comes my blood sugar again, hooray. Maybe I'll be human within the hour.
