Soo new logo eh? | Harass my Mother | Still fetusyWell look at that. A fancypants new logo!Do we like it?I don't. *Lies on the floor of the journal*I don't hate it, it's just... a bit... ugly? I don't know. It reminds me of a tube station map or something in the medical profession. Or that cactus cartoon thing that is always running.And it is too green. Maybe I am getting old. I am sure I'll get used to it, there was something satisfying about the old one though. Oh well. Times must change. ----Some of you may know that I have a Facebook page dedicated to harassing my Mother. I photoshop her head on things, I tell amusing stories of her weirdness and I detail the awful things I do to her, like sewing her jumper to the sofa or making her fit as many marshmallows into her mouth as possible.Here is one example, I am doing an Advent Calendar for her, this is my favourite so far.Such. Fun.She hasn't got a Facebook account or really acces
Done with this pregnancy stuff.So. Over 32 weeks now and I can happily say I WANT IT OUT RIGHT NOW.Why on Earth would someone do this to themselves?! It is torture. The sickness, the hormones, the endless wailing, the endless weeing, the kicking and the unholy moving from inside yourself?! WHY?!WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THESE THINGS?And I still have to birth the little sod yet! D: He has been inside longer than I was! I was out by now! Ugh. Sob.We got some scans done - He has a face! Quite happy about that.On shitty news both my cats have now gone missing. :/ No more cats for me, it is far to heartbreaking.How are you lovely lot doing? Preparing for Christmas/<unoffensive option here>? I have been a wrapping demon and got a load done! Hurrah! I do visit dA most days but I am just lazy. I will be back to full awesome force one day but things are going on right now. Damn them. DAMN THEM ALL.

Baby gender revealed!We went to the hospital as you do and had the 20 week scan. Baby was there, wriggling about and being all alien like and scary. Every now and then a hand appeared and then you could see a spine. Freaky. Seriously I was creeped out.Then the scanner woman pointed out the placenta and I felt the need to vomit into my mouth. Yeah, I'm not good with these things. Christ knows what'll happen at the birth! It will be HILARIOUS.So yes, baby is there wiggling about, avoiding the scan thing. When the lady first looked it was upside down! She asked if we'd like to know the gender if she could tell. We said yeah it was okay. So she had a little look at their bits and pieces and the baby splayed their legs and we got an eyeful of fetusy boy bits! So its a boy AND WHAT A BOY. I laughed as the bits and pieces flapped about. I was a little sad as girl clothes are so much prettier and fancier but as long as he is healthy I am thrilled, some people can't have kids so I'm certai
Sex tomorrow and depression.Hello Deviants.How are you doing? I hope you are all doing well.Tomorrow I go to the hospital to see what the baby is doing and hopefully find out if it has a peen or a vagoo. I am not really bothered what gender it is, as long as it is healthy and has a face then I will be happy.I haven't really been feeling all that happy lately. I blame all the hormones. Just wanting to sit in my house and be sad! I haven't even managed to go visit the BFF's which is upsetting. I hope that it will remedy itself soon.I am also in the "oh god I'm having a baby. Do. Not. Want." stage yet again. Joy. I am sure when it bursts forth it will all be okay. D: It will wont it? If not I will sell it and use the money to buy kittens. Many kittens.The dog will not leave me alone at the moment. She's never been overly affectionate but she is so needy and odd at the moment. Damn hormones. It'd be okay but she is HUGE and wants to lie on me.I have sat down to write this journal so many times but haven't had t
My DA Story.My DA journey starts eleven years ago when I first joined. I was fascinated by how people could make colours and lines look so amazing when I could barely draw anything.Whilst battling an endless fight with the voices in my head, I found DA and the community a great way to escape for a while and talk to like minded people.I saw awesome art made with photos of normal people. Not super models or famous people, just general every day people. So I wondered if maybe I could be made to look 'beautiful".I loved what was made. I loved how others could envision things I hadn't even imagined. I threw myself into the community, wanting to make everyone as upbeat as I felt.I met people I grew to love, I lost some along the way which is pretty shitty but I still have some of the best friends I'll ever have and a load of friends across the globe. Now that is impressive.
Death sucks.Hello Deviants.My Nan died last night.It was expected and she went without pain but it is still pretty heart breaking. She suffered from quite bad dementia over the last few years and Dad looked after her at home until a few weeks ago when she needed constant care so she went into a nursing home just round the corner from his house. We visited daily and she was pretty okay with it all. However on Friday she was feeling a bit unwell and by the end of this week she was pretty much unconscious in bed. Before this she had really laboured breathing, it was pretty much a "death rattle".I am glad I got to see her on the day she died, I said hello and such and told her I'd see her the next day and gave her a kiss. She then went peacefully a few hours later. Now I obsess over making sure Dad is okay. Him and his siblings have known this day has been coming so it is a bit of a relief that she isn't in pain anymore, but it is still sad. You never want to lose a parent I guess.So here's to Nan
I seem to be having a baby...!!It has a hand! D: How excitingly terrifying! Manwife and I are having a tiny little person! I am about three months and six days, I was horrifically ill at the start, in pain and couldn't move. That then went and the sickness began, morning, noon and night I wretched. I also wretched if I didn't eat every few hours. Fun.As you may know I am terrified of needles and veins creep me out so the first (ever) blood test I had was traumatic. I wouldn't let them take it from the crook of my arm so they took it by my wrist. Mother managed to put the numbing cream on the wrong part of my arm. The midwife got the needle in and then went "Hmm, there's no blood" and "your vein's wiggling out of the way". I saw Mother's face fill with despair. She knew what was coming. Then suddenly someone was shouting "NO NO NO NOOOOOO! GETITOOOOOOUT!" Rather loudly. However my second one went well, the numbing cream worked well and the midwife got it on t
Collection: In The Shadow of DragonShare|ArchiveIn The Shadow of Dragons"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"— HtBlack of theWrittenRevolution
Collection: Alternative UniverseShare|ArchiveAlternative UniverseThe “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Collection: The Steampunk MenagerieShare|ArchiveThe Steampunk MenagerieThe magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.
