So I’ve decided to take a little trip before I get super hardcore back into Job Hunting™ and I find myself in Los Angeles. It’s hot here. It was hot at night, my flight from San Francisco was delayed and it took a while to get to my hotel, but I’m here as of yesterday night.

While waiting for my delayed flight I also cracked a joke about finding a flight….

…that wasn’t delayed (get it? a flight?) at the wine bar at SFO and the bartender apparently liked this atrocious joke so much that he discounted my order. Score? Or maybe he felt sorry for me because my sense of humor is so horrible.

MY DAD JOKE WINE

Today I’ve been lounging around and had lunch, but I’m going to brave the city and find some adult beverages, possibly see some industrial music, and report back.

 

 

VINDICATION

I’ve been throwing myself uselessly at Divine Beast Ruta – the first one – for a while now. But finally I got a few extra hearts and cooked a ton of heals and elixirs and I was READY.

OH I THINK NOT. NOT TODAY.

SUCK IT YOU JACKASS 

Doing Things

I exist, somehow!

Making an attempt to “leave the house” and “be social” and “see my friends” has been moderately successful. We shall see how successful I continue to be, but…

Went to a show with Starr, who looks like she’s scandalized by something I’m saying 

Serious Business Industrial Music Club

I met a tiny dog 

I read Tolkien and drank fruity cocktails 

Body Repairs


Starting physical therapy for my useless right arm. I’ve been basically incapacitated by RSI related pain and weakness in it for months. Here’s hoping that it will help!

Muscle work and stuff has been done and strange tape applied. It’s really achy but it doesn’t feel as impossible to use as usual.

Also this adhesive tape stuff is weirdly supportive? I’m surprised.

Silmarils: The Store

Indeed, I have a small RedBubble shop where I sell my original designs – mostly absurd Tolkien references. I saw the fact that there was nowhere online to sell me a “Dicks out for Elrond” shirt, and thought to myself “…well, for one, why am I like this? Secondly, I’m sure there’s a need.”

And so… I put my graphic design skills to work.
