What’s the buzz?

131102150948-03-hyperbole-and-a-half-horizontal-large-galleryI’ve been running on some crazy manic energy this week. I’ve been off meds (there’s been a kerfuffle with insurance about renewing my growth hormone prescription this year) for several weeks now, so I’m very impressed with what I’ve been able to get done this week. I ended up sleeping an extra four hours today, but I was still able to dust, vacuum, and straighten the living room and bunny pen (Comrade is currently sulking in a corner because I moved all of her stuff). There’s also a load of laundry going right now. I really wish I could figure out where the productivity is coming from so I can tap into it more frequently.

I know I am less than awesome about posting more of the personal things on this blog. Part of this is because I am a cripplingly introverted person. I usually only leave my house to go grocery shopping once a week, and this doesn’t bother me in the least. I spend the vast majority of my time alone. I like it this way. However, this also means I sometimes have trouble telling people stuff. I’m  just not used to sharing things with people who are not Webby. SO! I’m going to endeavor to write here more, even if it’s not necessarily Pagan in nature. I used to keep an online diary (I stopped when an ex hacked my account and read everything…), and I’d like to do that again in a way.

Anywho… Sitting here watching Jesus Christ Superstar with Webby. He’s never seen it before, which surprised me a little. I love this movie. I know it’s the story of Jesus Christ, but even as a Pagan, I can appreciate Jesus and the lessons he taught. I always get some surprised looks when people who know my spiritual leanings find out I own this. If you *haven’t* seen it, I think you should. It was filmed in the 70’s, and has some topical/political undertones, but it’s a very, very interesting look at Jesus’ ministry and death. Webby is a staunch Atheist, and he’s loving this. He’s even put aside his work (which I very rarely see him do). Go! Watch it now!

I named him T-bone

The Webmaster and I went out to eat the other night. When we were given our vibrating table reservation thing after being told the wait was over an hour, we left to check out some of the stores nearby. Webmaster, under the pretense of shopping for our 19 month-old nephew, insisted on the toy store. So we went, and found a collection of the most adorable plush dinosaurs. Webby ended up buying the t-rex for me when my back was turned. He’s super soft. I cuddle him as I sit at the computer. I’m 27, and I still cuddle plushes. Woo! Everyone needs some fluff every once in a while.

Coloring!

I’ve been sick for the past couple of days with fun things like fever and coughing. To occupy my fried brain and to keep my hands busy, I’ve gotten an adult coloring book. It’s amazing! The patterns are all really fun and so very, very intricate. Some of them are insane. It’s essentially a bunch of mandalas

Done using colored pencils.

I started working on this page, and at first, I wanted to make it very Autumnal, but I think it’s turning out much more summery than I originally intended. I think, when it’s finished, I’m going to get a nice frame for it, and use it for some of my Mabon decorations. It’s still mostly green, but those Fall colors are starting to seep in. I’ll have to find something to make up for Samhain!
