    Be right back, slowly perishing in the heat.  We actually had an extreme heat warning this morning, which… is insanity to me. It was expected to rise to about 40°C (104°F) in some areas. I can’t even comprehend that.  Needless to say, I have been hiding inside in the air conditioning. My boss came back from lunch and said that it “wasn’t too bad,” but her version of awful temperatures and mine… much, much different. She’s from Africa, after all. Much hotter there than here in good ol’ British Columbia.  I also had to dig out my respirator (aka my Bane mask) because of all the smoke from the wildfires.…

    *blows off the cobwebs* I hate that when I finally think I have time to work on this blog, I just… don’t, LOL. I have been so crazy busy this past month, I am still having a hard time accepting that it’s almost the end of July already. Time flies when you’re overworked and sick as Hell, right? Right. LOL. I have made a lot of changes, though, and made some steps that I am pretty proud of. I gave up my rotation at the hospital, so instead of working a 60+ hour work week, I am down to 40, like a normal human. I will still be picking up…

    Today has been a bad mental health day. I should be working, but I’m struggling with my concentration and I just can’t seem to get things going. I’m also missing a certain someone, who I know I shouldn’t be missing and it’s been over a year and I should be over it, but there you go. I was thinking about walking to Starbucks, to clear my head, but it’s too hot out and I forgot my sunscreen stick. 🙁

    First off, site updates! I have started to put together the writing section, which you can access from the “C’est Moi!” menu above. There is only one essay there right now, but I am compiling writings from my old notebooks and putting together some reviews and the like, so hopefully, by the end of the weekend, there will be a little bit of a collection going on. Also! I bought a premium WordPress theme some time ago, and I’m actually going to take the time to sit down and tweak it and get that going. I’m going to be experimenting with headers and such, see if I can’t improve on…

    Nostalgic jam for this morning: By the beard of Zeus, this place is in dire need of an overhaul. I need to clear up the cobwebs and get some actual content going on. Time is the killer though, right? I never seem to have enough of it. I spent this past weekend reading and resting in bed. I got my new Bride of Frankenstein tattoo started on Saturday. Danarae only managed to get the outline done, as the muscle in my calf kept twitching and seizing. I was rather disappointed, but I have another session in a few weeks and if I have to do it in small pieces… I…

    Forgive the lack of posting. I have spent the last few weeks in the grips of the dreaded influenza B, and I finally seem to be on the mend. I still have some fatigue and the occasional cough, but I’m functional, and I am not burning up like Human Torch from Fantastic Four. This virus just does not seem to want to let go and it’s been awful dealing with this, because there is not much that can be done except for fluid overload and symptomatic management, which is difficult, because of the fact that every cough/flu medication on the market either increases or blocks the effects of my antidepressants.…

    So, I found out last night that my Aunt Betty died. All I can really say is that “devastated” can’t even begin to cover it. It was completely out of the blue and I am still in a bit of shock. According to my cousin, she was found unresponsive in her home by a friend, and the EMS crew that arrived were unable to revive her. She was transported to Nanaimo, and the autopsy is supposed to be done either today or tomorrow. I’ve been told that it’s just a waiting game now, and hopefully, there will be some answers after the inquiry has concluded. My cousin mentioned that my…
