Yule Tide with the Burninator

One part holiday cheer, one part holiday beer. With love, from the Burninator!

Deck the Halls with Balls of Fire!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Tis the season for making pyres!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Don't we now feel nice and warm!
Fa la la, la la la, la la la!
Stroll the halls for more to burn!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

See them scream and burn before us!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Strike them down and join the chorus!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Follow me in searing measures!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
While I boast of blazing treasures!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Burn away the old year's asses!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Hail the new with lots of ashes!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Sing we boistrous, around the pyre!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!
Love the warm and crackling fire!
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

OOC: A Place of War

Okay, so I've been floating this around to people sporadically, and I figured since this would get out to the aggregated postings I might have some success gathering some interest and responses. So read on to find out about my Collapse )

[OOC] Back

Okay, so some of you may have noticed me back in play. So... yes, I'm back.

Short of it is that my RL situation has resolved rather more swiftly than I anticipated. Not precisely in the manner I would have originally liked, but things are going well. Some highlights are:

* I'm starting a new job on the 14th.
* I joined a gym, I'm working out, and getting fit fast.
* I am happier than I've been in a long time!

I no longer have need to 'escape' my problems, since I have done everything I can do to resolve them, and the rest will work itself out in time. I also simply don't have the free time I used to, so the chances of me immersing myself in RP over RL is... well, pretty darn impossible.

I want to thank everyone who kept in touch, or even kept me in their thoughts. Your support has helped me more than you know, and I will always be grateful for you, my friends.

[OOC] Update on me.

First, I'd like to say I hope everyone's having a good time, and enjoying one of the greatest Amber games I've ever had the pleasure of playing!

Second, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm doing well. The major upset in my life that forced me to leave the game is, right now, going in what I feel is a positive direction, but there's a lot to do yet to make sure it all works out for the best. It's not easy, and I'm journeying into some new and uncertain territory, but I feel that I'm making some major changes in my life that will help me become a better, happier person.

Also, though I am tempted, and I have even been given a green light, it will be some time yet before I return (and I do hope to). Playing online, as wonderful as it has been, has been at the center of a lot of these problems; it has allowed me to escape the realities of my life when I should have been focusing on fixing them, and I'm no longer going to succumb to that temptation.

Again, thank you all for all the good times, and with luck and progress, some day I'll be able to return.

Take care, and game on!

Yay [Diary]

Last night was a perfect cap on a really good week.

One client very pleased with their commission.
One commission that did not rear its head... yet.
One /very/ wonderful party for a dear friend (hope she likes the gift).
Many wonderful costumes!
One very hilarious Gerard.
One secret learned.
One dance much enjoyed.

I even got Taleyned! Truly, it's remarkable how that girl can catapult herself across any distance for a hug.

What could I say? [Diary]

I know I haven't written in a while. What could I say? How could I say it?

As bad as things were after Rebma, at least they're getting better. There is hope.

Hope that...

...someone will find my people, for better or worse.
...someone will find my people for the better.
...I won't lose him forever.
...others will understand I'm just not like them in many ways.
...all is not lost.

Whatever my losses, my heart remains strong and I've blessings to keep the fires burning.
