As it was written in the Scrolls of Sutekh…

Well it’s the weekend again, so it means I should throw some words on virtual paper. Get the brainmeats out of the way quick, being back on seroquel means I’m sleeping more/better, but my anxiety is still way out there. (not expecting immediate fix, I know better). Depression lurks in a ninja kind of way, I see good things, I feel good things, but it leaps out every now and again in a nihilistic kind of way that reminds me that I’m still rather broken. But I’ve been broken before, and I’ve put myself together, repeatedly. I am a New Yorker after all, we’re survivors.

So enough strum und drang. What is best in life Vulpine? Well, I’m not Conan, so lets start with books. Been reading a bunch of old school Mythos still. Got a pile of other stuff to read, but other than a little history it’s all tentaclular horrors. Listened/ing to a few books by Charlie Stross to get in the mood for his latest Laundry File book next month. Not the whole series, just enough to get back in the series. So many books, so little time.

Went to see ‘The Mummy’ today. A solid bit of cheese, with a side of ham from Russell Crowe. Yes it could have been much better, but it still was fun and Sofia Boutella was a nice mix of creepy, evil, and lovely. Plus, she was literally covered in hieratic script, so a walking book. Sign me up for the cult please. *grin* Also, for any Lovecraftians who’ve seen it, did anyone look at the red jewel McGuffin and think ‘Shining Trapezohedron’ ? Or was that just me trying to make everything into a Mythos reference

What will I do tomorrow? Probably just chores and stuff. Been meaning to clean up the bedroom for months now, may just pop an audiobook or podcast in and spend a while in there trying to get things organized. This is alongside a store run, laundry and similar stuff, so I may set reasonable goals instead. Assuming I don’t just hide in bed with a book, or within a movie marathon of cheese and gore. We’ll see. For now though, going to call this a post before it’s technically Sunday. Laters cultists.

The Devil Made Me Film It

Well, after a crazy week of working at Carcosa, I’ve gladly lazed most of last night and today. The Thursday night maintenance went much better than Tuesday. Less servers, more help, more planning. Still didn’t get enough sleep, so come Friday night after work I pretty much ate dinner, and went to bed with a book. Was asleep before 10am, and I pretty much slept til 10am. Had some unpleasant dreams about a former friend, and some weird ones about blood relatives and submarine bases (reading wiki articles on subs probably contributed to the later. Also, somewhere there was sabre fencing. *shakes head* My subconsciousness needs a deep cleaning.

Got up today, got moving. Cleaned out the car finally, went and did critter care, got meds, got packages, and ended up coming home due to a lack of tentacles. Been watching a collection of ‘Devil Worship Horror Movies’ mostly from the 70’s. Epicly cheesy and fun, definitely got my money’s worth. Done some chores, done some VM updates, mostly just have been vegging.

My Nexus 5 decided to flake out, so I migrated back to my old 4, and put in a RMA request from the company I bought the 5 from. Very annoying. Glad I hung on the 4 for experimental purposes. Did manage to pull a backup, and reset it to factory default before sending it off. Still a pain in the tentacle.

Ok, going to call this a post, and keep on watching the wild fun of bad movies. Catch you all later.

The Three-Lobed Burning Weekend

Three day weekend. So much yay. Though next week will be kind of crazy making up for extra day off (down side of a contract position). Weekend plans are going to see the new X-Men movie tomorrow, and helping with a certain Amythest organizing a home office. (No, I’m not setting up a minifridge full of Code Red and a Cthulhu statue…not my idea of a home office). Sunday and Monday I’m planning on hermiting mostly, and doing some chores. Mostly down time though. I’m feeling a little kerfrazzled and I think I need me, my bad movies, my computer horde and my books to relax. A little stressed about next week’s weird hours and pshrink visit. Given the rough time I’ve had, I have a feeling we need to tweak my meds. And that’s something I dislike, side effect adjustment sucks. But, I could be better. And hopefully I will be quickly.

Otherwise things are decent. Been reading a lot which is kind of a given. History and Cthulhu, it’s been a bit of a bonanza the last few weeks with Mythos stuff. Work stuff is good, will be working my first maintenances at Carcosa, the above mentioned weird hours to make up for the day off. Which honestly, I’m looking forward to. I do not like making other people do work that I can do. Silly contract limitations. Not really much else for the week. So I guess I’ll call this post done. Probably ramble more tomorrow. Catch you all later.

Thank Cthulhu It’s Friday

Thank Cthulhu it’s Friday. The annual Deathcold/Allergy fest kicked in last weekend, but I managed to avoid calling in. The allergies have mostly passed, but I’m now in the middle of the coughing fest that comes along. Not fun. But I’ve felt much worse in years past.

Carcosa is pretty decent. Was given root access to all the linux instances yesterday, which makes my life easier. Mostly have been dealing with Windows foo still. Somewhere the linux gods are laughing. Did try to get some Nagios foo done today and made a series of oopses that were bloody annoying. I am rather out of practice with Nagios, something I should correct in short order. Also had multiple meetings that were…multiple. Oh well, that’s the life of Corporate Cultists.

Came home after work, was originally going to get take out. But after today I really just wanted to come home, and I had plenty of food here. So home I came, got into comfy clothes and cooked up a pot of mac and cheese. Queued up the ‘Re-animator’ trilogy and I’m vegging here at Ch√Ęteau Innsmouth. I was going to do a set of assorted chores, including catching up on the laundry…but I think I’ll just be here at the Desk of Doom ™, and watching movies. Oh yeah, and catching up with the internets that I’ve missed while working.

I’m doing ok, a little blue, seems I’m losing touch with an old friend, and it makes me sad. Oh well. At least I get to see my besties tomorrow, and watch ‘Sharkando 3’ and ‘Deadpool’. And I have a metric shoggoth load of books, and cheesy horror movies…and oh crap, I never turned on the external disk array on Dagon. Bugger. *scrambles to fix and start the rsync process*. I really, REALLY need to make these things fail with a notification *facetentacle* Oh well, better to catch it now, before horrible things happened. Guess I’ll call this a post, and get back to watching backups run, and Dr West reanimate things randomly. Ciao.
