Home!!I got home from my crazy trip to Chernobyl yesterday and have mostly caught up on my sleep.Home!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw lots of stuff, snapped thousands of photos, and wrote a detailed trip journal each night (and sometimes paused during the day to sit down and write a bit...) about the whole experience. It'll help me cement everything in my memory to write it all down quickly before it fades.
Looking at lots and lots of wreckage made my mind start to go numb; there are levels and levels of detail and I kept trying to make sense of everything. It simply doesn't work. After a day or two, I found myself just walking around shaking my head mumbling, "no. no."
The people who had to deal with the accident did the best they could with an incomprehensible and horrible situation. I kept feeling alternately elated and horrified that humans had been such brave ass-kickers that they got their kids out, left their homes in an orderly manner - and then some of them went back into a radioactive nightmare and cleaned it u

I went to Home Depot recently while not being altogether sure that course of action was a wise one. You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a massive quantity of my patented 'you're definitely going to crap yourself' road-kill chilli. Tasty stuff, although hot to the point of being painful, which comes with a written guarantee from me that if you eat it, the next day both of your butt cheeks WILL fall off. I think some day I might patent the recipe as a weight loss method.
Here's the thing.... I had awakened that morning, and even after two cups of coffee (and all of you know what I mean) nothing happened. No 'Watson's Movement'. Despite the chillies swimming their way through my intestinal tract, I was unable to create the usual morning symphony referred to

Yep, me...the "Evil Penis" guy as most of you liked to call me. Or the Spider, that worked, too.
Before I left dA I noticed that even if you do come back, you can never really truly come back. I mean you can return, sure. Not a problem there. But dA is more of a social network than an art site. It has been going down that path on a steady yet rapid pace for a very long time. Now that I have been absent from activities but have returned occasionally to post work I am not received Particularly well. I understand why the staff would avoid me. I mean, come on, those that have followed me long enough understand that my employment with deviantART did not go especially well. I have never talked publicly about that issue and what exactly happened and will not break that silence now. The issues of my leaving were fairly well documented. But what about all those "friends". What happened to them? I supposed I was simply not networking enough. Or, in my case, at all.

I had the procedure done for my stomach and hopefully everything will be okay . For anyone who remembers all my complaining about it .
Also, I've been checking DDs every day, and it's really sad how much less attention they get now. I looked at today's just an hour ago and half of them hadn't broken the 200 fave mark ><. It's not any specific member's fault, I think it's just that the DDs (and journals) aren't in the footer anymore and so they're forgotten. Or, they have a computer like mine that takes ages to load any of the tabs, especially if you have it set to go right to the Today page ><.
At first, I thought the DDs were the only things really negatively affected (besides members' feelings of control of their profiles and work), but now I'm noticing how. . . dead it's getting around here. There are still a lot of people here, etc., but I think a lot of the 'old guard' have packed up and left. The only work that
