Can someone help me find my lung?

It’s April Fool’s Day. Been caught at least twice, possibly I should just avoid the internets today. Oh well.

Was kind of a rough week, still feeling puny, work has ramped up my meeting queue, and I’ve been kind of flailing around trying to get stuff done. Glad it’s the weekend though. Today is movie theater day, going to see ‘Ghost in the Shell’ then ‘Life’ this evening to celebrate Nymaz spawning day (early, since the poor viking is stuck on call on his actually spawning weekend). There will also be general hangout time, and dinner at a diner we all like by the movie theater. Omelet for days, and maybe even pie.

Still coughing up shoggoths, still feeling less than good. I’m hoping it’s just my lungs clearing with a side of allergies redux. But there may be yet another doctor visit coming up, as this is utterly miserable.

Otherwise, things are ok. Double-checked vacation approval with my boss’s boss. Wasn’t ‘worried’ but I wanted to make sure it was cool up the chain. I also found a reason to adjust my pre-Providence travels. Kirk Hammett, along with being a guitarist, is a major horror collector. So a museum in Salem is doing a exhibit of some of his stuff. And since I’m flying into Boston, I may have to make a side trip up to Salem the day I fly in. (on top of visiting old Ironsides and the Boston Aquarium, maybe driving to the Atlantic shore…) Really, I need to make a separate trip to Boston in the future, lots of things I want/need to see with adult eyes. Oh well, that’s what 2018 is for.

What’s up in cultist ville? Books, including finishing the late John Glasby’s ‘Dark Armageddon’ trilogy. The series is about humans trying to survive when the stars come right. It’s very Brian Lumleyesque, but I’ve always liked Glasby’s writing. He doesn’t reinvent anything, or won’t take home the gold in Cthulhu writing, but he does right solid, readable, enjoyable tales that scratch that tentacle itch.

Also, remember ‘Winter Tide? Book freedom day is this Tuesday. It should be in your local brick+mortar stores, as well as findable at your online bookplace of choice, plus there’s always I’ve got the Kindle edition preordered, and I’ll be at the local B&N on Tuesday to get my hardback edition. April has a lot of preorders coming out, so it will be a good reading month.

Also, speaking of Lovecraft, next weekend is the release date for The Void. Lovecraftian film, that has people/shoggoths/mi-go all abuzz. (literally when you mention the later). It will be showing in DFW at one of the Alamo Drafthouses, and I’m looking to go see it on the big screen. (then of course, pick it up on bluray afterwards).

Ok, that’s enough rambling for today. Wish me luck on good movie sign, and feeling better, and I’ll ramble later.
