ughhhhhhhhh. I’m ill. I guess. I dunno. I woke up yesterday all like “Ack, where hast mine voice absconded to???” and then I did literally nothing but read [ extremely nsfw ] freaking torture porn fic all day in bed. Today I woke up and my voice was just gone, I had a pretty exciting cough, and I felt really fatigued. Nbd. Probs just cuz I stayed up until 10.30 PM reading. Ugh. So late.
I got home from work at like 11.30a, went to sleep at like 12.30p. Slept until like 5.30p.
Guess how I feel?
NOT BETTER. NOT AT ALL BETTER.
I made myself some spaghetti bolognese – probably the most draining spagbog I’ve EVER made – then I made myself some more mint tea w/ honey ( it’s magic. It makes your throat better because of magic. Iwannabeahedgewitchlemmealone ) and now I’m conked on the couch feeling like I’m definitely going to die. I’m even in my suicide PJ bottoms ( so called because they’re the PJ bottoms I was wearing when I tried to commit suicide. ) I mean, seriously. I feel awful. Achey all over, and totally out of it.
At least I don’t work super late tomorrow. I have some hashtags for when I’m feeling shit but refuse to give in:
#cantstop #wontstop #literallyincapableofstopping
Also, Sarang is cuddling with me, so that makes everything a bit better.

I showed my roommate my favourite episode of Star Trek: TNG today. I love love love the way the Tamarian language works. It is a language based entirely on metaphor drawing from their myths and stories. It’s also just a really quality episode that has a lot to say on the importance of communication and the responsibility of those with even a small amount of power to do their best to communicate with the people they meet.
Whenever I watch this episode, I always start thinking about how English might sound in metaphor – I think our generation would have a lot of Harry Potter situations. Also, I think a forbidden but widely suspected love might be “Spock and Kirk, on the Enterprise” :p
Specific to my life we have:
Phrennie, her claws on the door – When you really, really have to pee
Sarang, at the bathroom sink – When you’re thirsty!
Dru at the pizzeria, her hands blurred – Doing stuff really fast!
Or something. Idk. I’ve been drinking.
The point is, I love this episode. It’s on Netflix. Season 5, episode 2. WATCH IT.
I’ve been struggling with what to do with this blog. “Tales from the Asteroid” didn’t really seem appropriate anymore, seeing as The Asteroid was my old apartment that died in a fire. And I don’t really have abundant content ideas … Continue reading →
