Grad school acceptance is done.

Grad school housing is iffy.

My dad is doing amazingly well two weeks post op. He's ready to run away and join the circus, I think, because he's so bored.

I finally joined the modern age and bought a Wii. Combined with my dad's new TV, it's the best thing in the world. I also got a Wii fit.

Life is otherwise boring as hell.

I just made quite possibly the best tea ever.

2 black tea bags
.5 inch ginger
half an orange

Thinly slice the orange and the ginger. Steep it all in simmering water for 20 minutes. Pour into a glass, add splenda and a tablespoon of milk.

Die of happiness.

We've now gotten 8 inches of snow. It's pretty insane outside. We just don't see this kind of snow in Arkansas often. I can count on one hand the number of times I remember snow more than six inches. The biggest snow we've had that I remember is 18 inches back in 1988. That was a fun two weeks out of school. My neighbor's dad had a four wheeler and a pulled us on a sled. We also built a snow cave.

This time my dad's four wheeler was broken, so we've really not done a whole lot. Everything in town is shut down, and I have a feeling it will be mostly shut down until the weekend.

In other news, I am dreading Valentine's Day. It's just another reminder I am alone.

I've had my world fairly shaken over the past 24 hours, and I honestly have no idea what to do about it.

For the past two years, I've had a friend named Mike. He's been my best friend, the person I've cried on their shoulder, and I though he was the one person who I could depend on no matter what. There had always been some romantic tension between us, and an understood agreement once we were in a better place in live we'd be together. I was under the impression he was an up and coming screenwriter, and we'd even dreamed about our own little co-op in New York City one day.

He's been a constant source of amusement and joy in my life. Yes, things really suck with my illness and my life in general, but these dreams we shared really made things worthwhile. I knew there was always an out, a tomorrow.

However, about two weeks ago, Mike dropped off the face of the earth. He stopped signing on to AIM, and stopped answering my calls and texts. He missed my birthday, which he never does. Worried, because he has his own health issues, I contacted a mutual friend who informed me his ex-wife had moved back in. The same ex-wife who lied to him and abused him two years ago. According to our mutual friend, they've been back together for at least six months, the same time period that he and I have been making plans.

I feel lost. Here was someone I trusted completely, whom I loved on many levels. Our relationship was both easy and complicated, but it worked. We'd spend hours snarking on bad scifi movies and now tonight when I made a horrible joke about V to myself, since I don't have anyone else to snark to now, I starting bawling. I never thought anyone else would get me like he did, and now I am starting to feel like no one will ever get me because for all I know, everything was a lie. What make it even worse is he was always the person I depended on when I needed someone and now I can't even talk to him about it.

This is now what I needed today, or ever. I swear, I am destined to be alone.

Why do I trust people so easily? Why do I want to believe the best in people?

So, I am very conflicted on a story.

Couple aborts twin boys because they want a girl

On one hand I am pro-choice, but on the other, I am just a bit disturbed at sex selection abortion. I look at China, where girls have been abandoned and aborted, and there are so many more males than females. I realize there are other sociological factors, but still, it bothers me. I would never want to take away anyone's legal right to an abortion. I guess I am more concerned with the ethical implications to out society as a whole.

Granted, I am also disturbed by some people's idea that embryos that potentially could be disabled are less valuable.

gluten free

(no subject)

So, I have to admit, I'm pretty happy today. Ye old FedEx guy brought my box from Asian Food Grocer today, and it made me squee. Twenty packages of shirataki noodles, a big bottle of fish sauce, and three free pairs of gorgeous chopsticks I got as part of a Black Friday deal. They also included a Japanese energy drink called Dragon Pearl. I looked at the back, and it's likely to kill me, since it included Blueberry juice. Still, the bottle looks intriguing. I'll probably pass it on to my brother.

I am far more excited about the noodles. If you've never dabbled in the gluten free noodle world, you pretty much have three choices:

1. Rice Noodles/Pasta - Up side? Gluten Free. Down side? Expensive, super high in calories and carbs. 200 calories for a serving. Also, they have a taste you have to get used to.

2. Corn Pasta - Up side? Gluten free, sweet tasting. Great for kugel. They are about the same caloric value as regular pasta.

3. Shirataki noodles - Made from an Asian yam plant known as Devil's Tongue. Up side? under 20 calories a serving. 3 grams of soluble fiber. Cheap if ordered in bulk. Of course, there is a learning curve on how to prepare them, and I can't just buy them at the local grocery store.

I prefer shirataki noodles to anything else. They have zero flavor, kind of like tofu, so they take on the flavor of whatever you cook them with. My plans right now include stir fry, pho and a good, heavy pesto. It should be good, and good for me.

My Gluten Free Thanksgiving

We're waiting on the last of the food to finish, but I am quite proud of my GF Thanksgiving feast:

Cornbread dressing (make with scratch GF cornbread)
Mashed Potatoes
Smoked Turkey (didn't even have to smoke it! Bought it from a local fundraiser)
Cauliflower Gratin
Corn casserole (corn, onions, corn starch, sour cream, spices topped with crushed corn chex)
Fruit salad
Antipasto platter of veggies, hummus, spinach dip, rice crackers
Cheddar Garlic biscuits using GF Bisquick

And...

a GF cheesecake. I bought some Kinnikinnick GF Graham style crackers and made the crust. The rest was naturally GF!

It was surprisingly easy to do everything gluten free. I'm excited to eat!

This is Doug Donham. He is an awesome guy with a promising academic career. He was reported missing October 30 by his parents and was last heard from on October 17th in Denver.

His apartment lease ended last month around the time he was defending his dissertation at the University of Colorado Denver. Subsequently, he was somewhat homeless while revising his paper: sleeping on a couch in the student union and sometimes getting a hotel room. As of the 17th his phone has been turned off and his parents, friends and adviser have not heard from him since then.

If you have any information on his whereabouts since then, please contact Chris Schilling (chris dot schilling at gmail dot com) who is coordinating with Doug’s parents. Also, more information and updates can be found at the Updates on Doug Facebook page.

gluten free

(no subject)

The journey to being gluten free has been bumpy to say the least. I have found out I am lucky. Had I tried to do this ten years ago, I would have had to have learned every single gluten containing food enhancer, binder and additive. However, most major food companies are good to label foods that contain one of the big allergens: milk, soy, wheat, corn, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, and peanuts. It made it so much easier to go through the fridge and the cabinets and mark everything that contains gluten. If you look, everything I can't eat is marked with a giant G on top in black magic marker.

It's been interesting to see the differences even between brands. Cocktail sauce is a good example. The Walmart house brand contains gluten, but the Kraft brand does not. I have learned most fat free or low fat products contain gluten, even if the normal version does not, especially dairy products. The only lower fat product I've found that consistently doesn't have gluten is lower fat cream cheese. That is, of course, because it's not really cream cheese, but Neufchâtel, (also known as Farmer's Cheese)another cheese that tastes similar, but is lower fat. I personally use it because I prefer the taste.

I've been at this now for about 10 days, and I feel better. The rash I have that the doctor suspected was caused by the gluten intolerance had cleared up significantly, from my legs, arms, torso and hands to just my hands, and Friday I actually felt so good I cleaned the house, did all the laundry and put away summer clothes. I admit, it was a bit of a manic episode, but still, I haven't been that productive in six months.

As well as I have been doing, I managed to get "glutened" (as the celiacs call it) the other night. My family has a Friday night tradition of getting fried fish or shrimp for dinner. Since fried is out, I ordered Cajun grilled shrimp and a baked potato. The shrimp was heavily seasoned, and I have a feeling that either the seasoning or perhaps cross contamination from the grill got me. Within 2 hours, I was clawing at my legs, and had a horrible headache. Needless to say, I am just going to go buy a big bag of frozen shrimp and boil my own on Friday nights. I'm STILL recovering today.

"We've got to stay together and maintain unity. You know, whenever Pharaoh wanted to prolong the period of slavery in Egypt, he had a favorite, favorite formula for doing it. What was that? He kept the slaves fighting among themselves. But whenever the slaves get together, something happens in Pharaoh's court, and he cannot hold the slaves in slavery. When the slaves get together, that's the beginning of getting out of slavery. Now let us maintain unity." - Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

So, I neglect my LJ a lot. Mostly because I'm far more active on Insanejournal and Twitter. I rarely post to Facebook anymore, because I feel like I can't cull my friends over there and not offend my family. Where as Twitter is limited, as far as following, to people I actually care about and share interests. I rarely have to deal with homophobic, xenophobic or racist crap on my twitter feed, and I like it that way. I can't say the same about Facebook.

I have changed to yet another doctor, however this one is MUCH closer to home. So, instead of driving all the way to West Little Rock (about 2 hours, depending on traffic) I drive about 35 minutes. So far, I like him, and he's decided on a more aggressive treatment route for my sacoidosis. Right now I take roughly 10 different medications. My treatment goal for the next six weeks is to wean me off about 6 of them, including my mexotrethlate, which is a form of chemotherapy. I get to keep most of my mood stabilizers and possibly a low dose of steroids. Then we will begin adding some new medications, including a stronger monthly injection of chemo. One thing I am taking that the doctor is pleased about is the anti-malaria drugs. It's keeping my hypercalcimia under control, and at a level that is a bit high, but not dangerous.

I am also now completely cut off gluten. Looking at the lists of what contains gluten depresses me. It's not just flour, it's in everything. Even things that at gluten free can often become cross contaminated.

A lot of the medication I am on right now is to counteract the side effects of the steroids and mex. Both make me paranoid as hell, and hallucinate things. My mom had to go on a trip recently, and I was CONVINCED she was going to be murdered. I knew that she was fine, but I just couldn't stop the thoughts. I also have night terrors now, and frequently wake up thinking someone is screaming in my house. This, of course, leads to insomnia and messed up sleep schedules. It's a frustrating way to live, and I really hope once we cut back my steroids, it will help. And also, I now have this random rash that comes and goes and makes me want to claw my skin off.

In good news, however, grad school totally rocks, and it's a good distraction. I'm only taking two classes online, but I love it. If I can ever get better, I am going to move to Austin or Fort Worth and commit to getting my doctorate.

Speaking of Fort Worth, I am going there next month to visit family and see Harry Potter 7 with my friend Erin opening weekend. I am really excited about it. Sometime after Christmas but before my birthday, I am going to fly to Indy to spend a week with Mike and his family, since he's home from NYC for now, though likely will be going back to work on his new show. Granted, if he does, that's an excuse to go to NYC, right? I secretly want to go to NYC with him, because he has the coolest friends, and I am dying to meet Joey.

I know I really don't post as much as I should, but life has been such that I often feel I have nothing to write about that would interest anyone. To a degree, my life is incredibly boring. However, my increased free time has left me with a LOT of time for quiet contemplation.

As such, I think it is time for me to formally announce that I no longer consider myself to be Asatru. There are a lot of factors in this decision, and I just don't feel that my personal convictions line up with Asatru and the direction I have seen the faith moving. I still have a great deal of respect for the faith, and for many people that it has brought into my life, but my steadfastly liberal and universalist beliefs (In the broad sense, not the heathen sense) and my beliefs of archetypes rather than deities has me in a place I would be a liar to call myself Asatuar.

I had been, briefly, attending some services at an Episcopal church. I started there after attending some meditation groups. While I enjoyed the fellowship, I don't think high church is where I am called to be, though I enjoyed the social justice aspects.

I have, for almost a year now, felt a draw to the Society of Friends. My only regret is not attending a meeting in Little Rock before I moved. Still, the idea of quiet, unprogramed worship, seeking one's inner light, and the idea that everyone is equal is something that moves me in a very profound way.

I am writing a new blog, called Little Simple Steps about my spiritual journey. You are welcome to read or not read it, but I think this will help further my desire for quiet meditation about God, about simplicity and finding my inner light.

Toward the end of his life, the Buddha took his disciples to a quiet pond for instruction. As they had done so many times before, the Buddha’s followers sat in a small circle around him, and waited for the teaching. But this time the Buddha had no words. He reached into the muck and pulled up a lotus flower. And he held it silently before them, its roots dripping mud and water.

The disciples were greatly confused. Buddha quietly displayed the lotus to each of them. In turn, the disciples did their best to expound upon the meaning of the flower: what it symbolized, and how it fit into the body of Buddha’s teaching. When at last the Buddha came to his follower Mahakasyapa, the disciple suddenly understood. He smiled and began to laugh. Buddha handed the lotus to Mahakasyapa.

I've contemplated this post quite a bit over the past few days. It seems that once again the HP role play world has been overcome with a wave of drama. The who and why is not important, because I have seen this before, and I doubt this will be the last time there is an incident like this. But there is something I have noticed, and it seems that no matter the fandom, the same problems seem to cycle. These are just my observations, and they are by no means complete.

This is my life.

I've had a sinus/ear infection for the past 2 weeks. The first week I could barely get out of bed. The second week, I was better but still dizzy. I am still dizzy when I wake up in the morning. So when I got up yesterday, I managed to trip, fall and break two toes and sprain my ankle.

Seriously, Fuck My Life.

This weekend starts megaplot on Gilded Court, my Harry Potter AU Royalty game. We have a metaplot of the crown casting a charm on muggleborns at birth to keep them from using their magic, so not to violate the statute of secrecy. Of course, what the public doesn't know is that spell also decreases muggleborn magic. We have done some pretty good set up for the plot, with muggleborn test scores dropping, and Hogwarts forcing muggleborn students to attend mandatory summer tutoring.

A protest group called Muggleborns 4 Justice is forming, and there will be protests in Hogsmeade this weekend that just so happen to be at the same time as the charity quidditch match that Lady Pansy, Prince Draco's fiance has organized for the new Children's Hospital. Well, things are about to get dicey.

I am seriously questioning WHY I am a Heathen.

There is a lot of discussion of how Heathenry is about community, but I feel very disconnected from the "community" outside of my immediate one. Most of my practice is my own, and I get along much better with Christians and "sane Pagans" than I do with 90% of Heathens.

I honestly no longer want to identify as being Asatru, not because of my own beliefs, but because the religion seems to attract nut jobs. That makes me very sad.

It is time to cull the herd, unfortunately. Since darkke_thoughts and I are starting our new Word of Darkness game, Gehenna, I am going to have to make some hard choices on what to cut.

My panfan is gone, tired of the drama and the lack of tagging.
My MWPP era game is gone, as much as I hate to do it, I'm just not getting into it.
A few others I had one charrie in are gone as well.

Leaving me with

Gilded Court - My baby, my first love, and the game I will play until it is run into the ground.
Eureka Springs - Batman/Supernatural/OC game, I'm the tech mod, and I adore all the players.
Fortunate Isles - Fluff game, doesn't take much time, and is home of my second favorite ship at the moment.
ReAwakened - Post DH game, and home of my one of my strongest muses.

Not too bad, and fairly balanced, though I still have a Narcissa Malfoy muse I need to play somewhere. Preferably against a good, strong Lucius.

With all this stuff going on with Iran, I can't help but think of this quote from Robert Heinlein, from "If This Goes On":

"I began to sense faintly that secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy...censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you may not see, this you are forbidden to know', the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything--you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him."

After two fairly intense weeks of work for Amy, Abby and I, The Gilded Court opens in two hours. It's been a bit of a surreal journey. It all started about six months ago when Aftermath 1 died. I was looking for a new game to join, and stumbled across That Game. The game looked promising. It was an AU game, based on the Harry Potter fandom with Pansy available. Now, for those of you who have played with me, you know that Pansy is my favorite character to play. So I apped and was accepted, and for the first few months everything was grand. I met three of my favorite RP folks there, Abby, Sean and Tony, as well as a ton of other friends.

After about a month, I began noticing something. Any time anyone disagreed with a player I will call Psycho-Hose-Beast, or PHB for short, they did not last much longer in the game. Also, one of the mods played a key character, and she would guide her RP so that PHB got whatever she wanted. I wasn't the only one to notice this. We attempted to bring this up to the mods, and were branded bullies. So we ignored it and went on with our game because we had some awesome plots going. Unfortunately, PHB was not amused, and began targeting our little group. She cost one character his job, and tried to bait my character into doing something to get me in trouble.

So, Abby, who is the sweetest person I have ever known in RP, went to the mods to complain. This ended up with a chat with all of the mods where they called Abby a bully. So there was a mass "screw you all I quit" and the rest of our friends were booted. (Except Sean, which we found amusing) That night Abby, Amy and I started plotting our new game. We wanted a fresh, well researched game, and after one insane sleepless night, Gilded Court was born. There are other HP-characters-as-royals games out there, so we really strove to set ourselves apart.

And we have done it.

As of right now, two hours before we open we have 45 characters. A normal game has 20-30 characters. This is unreal. I've never seen a game start with this many, and we have another 10 pending apps. We had 22 holds (people who were reserving characters)in the first 24 hours we were open for applications, and those were ALL word of mouth. We have been reviewed by two communities and have been accepted into some selective advertising communities. Over all, I am just floored by how brilliant this entire experience has been. We open tonight with a bang. Theodore Nott will kill his father to gain his place on the Council of Lords and Ladies.

I think we managed to hit on the right concept at the right time. It's going to be one hell of a ride.

Pimping my RP

I know most of my F-list is not into RP, but I am very proud of Amy, Abby and my latest project. It's an alternate universe game, using the Harry Potter characters. The writing quality will be high, and I think it might be one of my best projects yet.

Long after the wars finally settled and the Monarchy had come to existence, there is now another struggle for power coming into play but this is far more dangerous and the outcome has consequences far worse than any war or small skirmish can produce. What kind? How about the complete destruction of the feudal way of life in Wizarding England? When an heir comes into question and families begin fighting for favor, only those who can survive will write the history books.
