It must have been somewhere past midnight. I was trying to fall asleep on a lumpy mattress in a second-rate nursing home where I'd landed after busting a calf muscle. The place was most likely the best option my garbage insurance covered.
I was 36 years old at the time, and clearly one of the youngest, most aware, and sanest people in the joint. It took moving rooms three times to find one where I could actually sleep, thanks to the ridiculous noise level of aged elevator hydraulics, door alarms going off any time of day or night, and high-pitched tones of nurse call-buttons they took their sweet time answering.
I had talked to my friend on the phone later into the night than intended, and the joke had come up again that I was stuck in Silent Hill. It really did feel like that some days, what with the haunted elevator that went to any floor it wanted, and the random patients flipping out. Now I was just waiting to drift off to dreamland. My sleep schedule was messed up thanks to a man

During that period, the closest moochable wifi was a 15-20 minute walk and not real dependable. I'm zero for two when it comes to disability residential organizations that don't suck horribly... but I have a year lease to ride out with this one before I look at options again. Sigh.

I moved three months ago, into their system of group homes. I'd unpacked in about 5 days, then a day or two later the property manager calls and tells me "uhm, we screwed up and put you in the wrong spot." Cue three months of clusterfuck, and mind you, I'd already been in the process of the first move for two months before moving day. So yeah... living out of boxes and not having internet (my third life priority after food and shelter) was just... insane. And now I'm cleaning disgusting carpet in my new room *when I bother to go work on that more* because they're too cheap to do useful things like professionally-clean a nasty carpet while waiting FOR THREE MONTHS with the room not in use.

Fuck 'em. They're called Housing Unlimited, so others can avoid this nonsense. I thought it was bad before I moved the second time, and after talking to my new roomie who's been keeping track of how bullshit HUI is... it's just flat-out fucking nuts.

Meanwhile, I wrote some 67,000 words of fiction on my tablet while bored out of my skull, so I'll be trying to get each project posted here as I get to it. Probably won't be submitting much else for a while because my art muse has been dead for a while now, most likely due to ridiculous stress levels. And the poor dolls, they've been in boxes for most of this wait-fiasco. But the fics are actually finished (minus spellcheck and final edits) other than one story that's kinda stuck on a plot point issue; theoretically it shouldn't be too much more work to get the finished ones presentable. Theoretically. I have internets again finally. :glomp: Internets are distracting. ^^;

And umm... stuff... and things. IDK. Onwards.

Oh and I have like almost 1,000 notifications of various sorts in my DA inbox and over 3,000 unread emails elsewhere. *ninja sneaky eyes* *delete all?*

AHEM! I mean... :hug:
