- Tag: t: homestuck - This blog is currently pretty much only about Homestuck and my brain problems. And maybe Homestuck is a delusion I'm having! And this is just, like, some folie à deux shit when people comment on my posts about it as if they're familiar with the subject matter. So, it could be it's just a blog about my brain problems.

- Tag: Kazuya Minekura's blog - Kazuya Minekura, the artist of the amazing Gensoumaden Saiyuki, was diagnosed with some pretty serious health issues a while back. She's been writing some very funny, angry, honest blog entries about her situation.

I've translated a number of these posts, but have fallen ridiculously behind; I encourage anyone else who'd like to pick up where I left off to do so.

- Post: The Very Small Problem - In the fall of 2010, I was diagnosed with a small tumor in my right frontal lobe. I was able to have it successfully removed in March of 2011, before it could cause any permanent brain damage. If it weren't for the existence of state high risk pools, a provision of 2010's Affordable Care Act - which some lawmakers are presently trying to repeal - it's very likely that I still wouldn't even know the tumor was there.

This post was written specifically to make American Republicans feel like jerks. I use my power for good, people.

- Tag: manga tropes - The Encyclopedia of Manga Tropes. Girl Power Corrupts may well be how you found this blog!

- Tag: a: kubo tite - In which I roundly scold Kubo Tite, artist of Bleach! Bleach vs Women and Bleach and power fantasies may well be how you found this blog! (Both of those posts contain spoilers up to chapter 395.)

- Post: TODAY I AM A DARKOVER BOOK may well be how you found this blog!

- Post: Anne Bishop does not CARE what you think and Heir to the Shadows may well etc.

- Tag: manga - I just talk about manga a lot in general.

- Tag: books - I also talk about sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal romance novels a lot!

- Tag: i teach english - In 2009, I spent seven months teaching English to Japanese kids in Shibata, Japan. Wacky antics ensued!

- Tag: i study japanese - And in 2007-2008, I spent a year studying Japanese at the Yamasa Institute in Okazaki, Japan. Wacky antics ensued!

1) How well did it work for not being Tired For No Reason?

2) If you've also tried Adrafinil, how about that?

(Psychiatrist was talking about putting me on Modafinil, but insurance probably won't cover it.)

which also somehow involved me coming up with a gemsona for a Steven Universe RP?

I looked it up to see what might qualify as a gemstone that was commonly found in limestone caves, because Kentucky. There was a list on Wikipedia in which the third and fourth entries were stones called "Stunko" and "Junko."

me: But which to choose...?

I went with Stunko because I didn't want anyone thinking I was RPing as Mizuno Junko or Enoshima Junko. Could be confusing.

I had to eat orange dye because modern medicine is confusing.

Mom picked up the orange dye for me. The dude pharmacist had no idea what she was talking about, but the lady pharmacist was just, "ah yes, the orange dye that you eat because modern medicine is confusing, yes it's right over here next to the products with pictures of cranberries on them."

Category romance novels are capable of making me quite sad!

Most other things are also capable of this, though.

I appreciate that Hatori's yuri concept was "two Tamakis, but one of them looks like Kyouya." Good work.

I swore a solemn oath, upon realizing that I was sick, that I would not engage in any self-destructive behavior that would make things worse - staying up all night morbidly re-reading stuff I know will depress me, getting in pointless internet fights, eating nothing but sugar, etc. In order to ensure compliance, I told myself I could buy a <$30 frivolous thing if I made it to Sunday afternoon without willfully fucking myself up.

I conceptualized this at time of vow as probably being perfume components or herbal tea, but having achieved my goal, I couldn't actually come up with any I wanted. So I ordered piracetam and phenylpiracetam instead. Because why not experiment on my brain. Why not. It's fucked up anyway.

You can see how seriously I actually take most nootropics in that I have chosen to categorize these things alongside lavender extract and "5th Chakra Tea."

I mean, l-theanine definitely does seem to work very well for me, but I have serious doubts about the objective usefulness of 90% of the stuff nerdjocks get excited about. I kind of wonder if the ostensible long-term memory and cognition benefits of the substances aren't actually the result of their users' spending so much time researching memory and cognition optimization strategies, and memorizing the names and structures of all the racetams, and things like that.

We need to do some testing to determine whether people get similar benefits if they get really into Pokemon and know everything's average base stats and have experimented with several possible EV-training strategies, etc.

(more than usual, anyway) is starting to settle down, thanks to antibiotics and other pills, but I'm concerned I may have permanently stained some household objects. With substances.

My usual doctor was closed, and I will go to the local ER over my dead body, probably, but one half of the couple who found Dubiety the Cat is a doctor, and she called in a prescription for me. I explained over the phone what was going on, which is fortunately very obvious even when my brain is doing the thing it is doing right now.

I told a vegan about vinegar eels, so they had to leave the country.

I think the pH of my tears has gotten fucked up somehow? Can that even happen with just tears and not other bodily fluids. Maybe I'm all acid right now, it's my new superpower. The point of this flawlessly sane post is that my eyes are still watering, and the skin around them has been all dry and cracked since yesterday. It's uncomfortable and I'm going to stick my head in a bowl of oil.

Kimchi ramen but with soba instead of ramen, spinach, and a couple poached eggs in there.

I'm almost out of kimchi now, though, so my siblings will need to go get me some. Okay, siblings? Okay.

Bisco Hatori is just messing with me at this point. She did a yuri manga, but it was only two chapters, and her new series has a male lead. Unacceptable.

There is no need for me to flip my shit over the store in town selling "kimono dusters" which are garments totally taxonomically unrelated to either kimono or dusters and appear to just be crappy beach cover-ups that'll fall apart after one wash. Everything is fine and I am not going to get pissed off over this trivial phenomenon.

Paying Attention-ness is already as high as it can get on this character, so it didn't go up.

My purpose in life is to lie in the bed experiencing alarming hypnagogia until the cats want something.

I will make a jewelry involving a tree a bird an octopus a top-hat a bug and watch parts and I will put it on Etsy and I will be sent immediately to hell

So Kingdom Hearts is, if I understand correctly, a video game adaptation of the thing where cartoon characters from various disparate franchises come together to convince a human child not to be Addicted To Marijuana anymore

Because I don't really make enough of the necessary material public! But you know you're in a story by me when

* you are one of an Odd Couple engaged some dangerous enterprise out of necessity,

* one of you spends most of your time hiding or in disguise,

* there is a powerful figure of low moral standards with whom at least one of you, probably both, has a dangerous and probably non-platonic obsession, and

* there is something wrong with the moon.

(No one remembers how many there are or what their names are (RoYAN); it's gone for reasons you think are your own fault but you keep dreaming meaningfully about it (Karkri Bullshit); it's there and affecting the tides but we can no longer see it; its orbit has become unpredictable; there is something living on it that is not human and with which we can't usefully communicate; there are specifically Xian living on it and they are assholes; it's stuck to the top of a mountain; it's pulling your city up towards it an inch or so a year, while the city's dark twin sinks into the ground below; it's malevolent and must be destroyed; there are too many of it; looking at it in the dark is existentially dangerous and no one can go outside at night.

My relationship with the moon is best summarized by that traumatic Astro Boy story with all the dogs. My subconscious mind is convinced that unpleasant shit's going down up there and we need to do something about it.)
