Mine Nemesis, Thy Name is Frank
At three twenty-seven in the morning, a sharp crack jolted Frank out of his creative haze. Looking towards the window, he noted the absence of the one of the more impressive icicles from the fire escape. Reaching over, he raised the nearly empty coffee mug. "Salute."
Setting the mug down and turning back to the screen, he cupped his stubbled chin with the other hand and went back to his brainstorming routine of alternately tapping the plus and backspace keys, setting a rythme for his mind to sort its ideas out into.
Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap.
Christopher approached the door to the master bedroom, a sense of dread anticipation for what he knew he would find beyond it tearing at the flimsy shred of hope that it was just his own mind toying with him.
"Too heavy on the word sauce," Frank said to himself, "pare it down."
Two steps forward, one step back. Being a writer was doing the cha-cha with yourself on a diet of coffee and pringles. Frank picked up the mug again and, draining it with

Step into my mind!


The last two dA events got me interested enough to make pieces for each of them but the currently running Pride Month event in particular is a milestone. For the first time in years, I got an idea in my head and stopped worrying about it being a perfect translation of the thought or what people would think of it before I'd even started. Instead, I grabbed the good paper I bought a long time ago and some colored pencils, got a soda, turned on some music, and sat down.

Then I sketched. I sketched and sketched, caring nothing for imperfections or overlapping lines, or whether that even looked like a circle or not, checking my various references until I had a collection of shapes and outlines that I was happy with. Then down went the outlines, away went the pencil, and then the colors and shades started to pour across the page as the voice of Phil Lynott sang out from my speakers to the wail of twin guitars.

I was in The Zone, a place I had been but couldn't remember how to get to, more ideas pouring into my mind. I was drawing like I had so many years ago, unafraid of what anybody might say or think; if I mess up, I fix it and continued. Now patterns and pixels and phantoms cavort in my mind and they can exist on the page just like that.

I've spent the last three years saying that I'd get myself going again. This time, I've actually done it. Don't stop now. Woooosh

I had this great idea but then I started to lose it so I looked into my own ear to try and spot it only I wasn't careful and slipped and fell in so now I'm stuck inside my own head.

Have you ever had that feeling where you space out for a moment and it feels like you're underwater, your inner ear swings, and things seem to be blurry? Except for those moments life is pretty much the same as before.

I have a pretty neat crocodile/alligator collection with pieces from around the world.
I enjoy B-Movies, cheese, and loud guitar.

Today I had to pick up some prescriptions. Right across the road is a restaurant that me and my brother haven't been to in a while. I figure, "Hey, let's go there straight from errands, that way we don't have to worry about our broken sink while we're waiting to hear back about it."

This place has a great soup and salad bar so we typically go for that. My salad tasted mostly good aside from one or two field greens that tasted of, what, dirt maybe? The chicken noodle soup and rolls were great as always and I grabbed a mini brownie since we planned on going out for ice cream later.

On the way home, which isn't far away, I notice that I'm feeling quite bloated but figure it's the root beer and don't pay it much mind. As I'm sitting at my computer blogging, the feeling that I'm turning into a balloon keeps increasing. I take some Tums and things appear to level off.

Then the pain comes. It's annoying at first but soon I'm clutching my stomach in agony. My burps for the last ten minutes have begun to taste more and more like acid. That in itself is both gross and not good. It is then that I begin to salivate heavily. Oh, fuck. I'm in serious trouble. I make it into the bathroom just in time and proceed to spew a slurry of lettuce, bread, and root beer into the toilet. My stomach clenches several times and then calms down a bit but I keep burping that terrible acidic taste/smell.

I try to lie down on the couch to watch a movie with my brother, as ice cream is now out of the question, burping acid the whole time. My stomach begins to churn again and soon the saliva returns. Off I rush for a second smaller torrent of Horror-Lettuce Stew. My stomach now feels completely empty but I'm still burping that awful taste every few moments. I return to the movie for about fifteen minutes.

Then my stomach churns downward. Well, sh- fifteen minutes later my entire system is completely empty and I am pretty sure that I have an awful bug if not straight-up food poisoning. I'm also very dehydrated and still burping up acid gas. It's been several hours now and I'm sipping ginger ale to free myself of the taste and get more out per burp. I take a regular sleep aid but I doubt I'll get any sleep as I don't fancy shitting myself during the night.

tl;dr: I ate what was probably bad lettuce and voided from both ends, now I feel like garbage.
