Jesus fucking Christ, I don’t like doing anything with actual children.  Online gaming, especially.  hur hur, so funny, let’s spawn camp you so the mobs don’t despawn, and then ClearLag deletes all your shit that you keep dropping because there are 80000 skeletons in your front yard.

Between that, and the server being hilariously unbalanced, that was the least fun I’ve ever had trying to play a game.  I spent the entire time running back from spawn, because there was no /back command, so I could never remember where I died.  By the time I did set up a base (right outside of spawn so I could fucking find it again), some little 12 year old cunt stole all my shit and then sat on my roof, throwing snowballs at me.

Goddamn, there really are no good Vanilla Minecraft servers anymore.  And now I’m angry over a stupid game.

I woke up this morning, and realised I had accidentally ruined my last few tootsie pops by accidentally dropping the bag they’re in into my water when I went to bed.  Kind of annoying, but they’re like, twenty cents each down at Winco.  I buy them by the pound.  But I was making noise about it, and Robin Hood made this big, dramatic frown at me, and said that if I’m good at my doctor’s appointment, he’ll buy me a new one.  What an ass.

But my appointment’s in a few hours.  I was worried that with the huge wait, by the time I got to my appointment, that the problem would have gone away on its own.  My lymph nodes went away for a while, but they came back last night.  And my left arm in particular is numb as fuck today.  It’s weird to be glad that a problem is persisting, but at least I actually have a valid complaint, instead of “well, it was bugging me last week…”  

I’ve got a stack of stuff I need to send out today, which I should have done yesterday, but sleep deprivation from this whole thing is making it really hard to concentrate.  And doing orders isn’t really something one should be doing on half a brain.  Bah.

In other, less doomsdayish news, Marvel Bang is starting up soon.  I’ve participated in the past as an artist, but I think this year, I want to do it as an author.  I know, I’ve got so many other WIPs going right now, but Midgard Legends might actually finish before artist claiming even starts for WIP Big Bang, the way I’m going with that, and I’m working on When the Dust Settles on the side.  Having a WIP that’s not being posted probably won’t really affect anything.  The problem is I’m not sure what I’ll actually do.  There’s a Thorki arranged marriage idea I’ve had for a while, and I’ve also got something I want to do with Justin Hammer, which probably won’t be long enough for a big bang.  IDK, what is the length requirement for Marvel Big Bang?  Does anyone know?  I’ll probably still do the arranged marriage one, just because it’s most likely to annoy people, and therefore most likely to be the one I have more fun with.  

I’ve missed doing Big Bangs.  WIP Big Bang just made a post last night, showing all the different fandoms and pairings involved this year, and there were a hell of a lot of sign-ups.  I’m looking forward to seeing what the list looks like once everyone’s signed up.  But yeah, I want to get that fic done as soon as I can.  Which will be a lot easier if my arms don’t fall off, so here’s hoping.

Intro Post

I’ve friended a lot of people lately, so I guess I should probably do an intro post. You’d think after 12 years, I’d have figured out how to do these things, but I never have got the hang of it.

My name’s Miles.  I’m 30.  I’m getting fat because I like to cook.  I post a lot of food on my Instagram, if you like that kind of thing.  I’m married, I have a pet shark that’s against the terms of my lease, and I run an Etsy shop for embroidery.

You’re probably going to find a fairly even blend (I think) of fandom bullshit and personal stuff on here.  Fandom-wise, I’m only really active in the MCU/Marvel comics.  I write fic, but every now and then I’ll post artwork as well.  Mostly, I stick to the Thor side of things.  Outside of comics and Marvel movies, my primary entertainment source is YouTube.  I watch a lot of channels where professional video game players play games they don’t know how to play.  I really like the Yogscast, and I like the Game Grumps, and have a few others sprinkled in there.  I also watch some really odd channels that basically boil down to people having more irritating hobbies than mine.  Ashens and My Virgin Kitchen are favourites.  331Erock and PelleK are fun, and I watch this silent survivalist and a guy who does horrible things to CDs with a lathe.  I live for the December Jingle Jam.  I took actual time off work to watch parts of that last year.

The embroidery that I do probably can’t be called traditional by any stretch of the imagination.  I haven’t been doing much at all this month, because of convoluted health reasons, but I like to do complicated tapestry projects.

Things like this.  This was fun.  I’ve always got about 4000 things going at once, which means nothing ever gets finished. It’s a habit I’m trying to break.  I tried to take a picture of my shark, but he’s hiding and won’t come out.  And I lost a bunch of my pictures recently, because of an iCloud cock-up.  I am le sad about that.

The stuff I like to cook is many and varied.  Lots of Scandinavian stuff.  Goat cheese is great with everything.  Lots of soups and stews and pastas.  If it looks fun and interesting, I’ll try it.  I had to learn to cook out of necessity, since I’ve got food allergies of a sort that make nearly anything pre-processed kind of deathy.  It makes going out to eat a particular adventure, especially after moving to a new area.  Because then, we have to go on a restaurant tour of the entire area while I find which restaurants are actually safe, and which items on the menu are safe.  Considering I was recently nearly killed by macaroni and cheese, this is not a fun process.  It also means that going on vacation pretty much limits me to finding somewhere that does like, fish and chips or something, since you have to have your head pretty far up your ass to over-complicate that to the point that it becomes a risk for me.

I complain.  A lot.  Mostly about how much I hurt.  Just a heads up there, since I hurt a lot, which is why I complain a lot.  I’ve got back and knee problems, And when I was living in Portland, would fairly regularly run into people who tried to kick me out of my seat on the bus because they only saw a young person, and didn’t see the cane I was holding.  There’s a special place in hell for those people.  It’s the place where all the chairs are covered in very sharp needles.

Uh.  Not sure what else to put here.  But hello to all my new followers!  I look forward to getting to know you!
