If it weren't for the wrong frequency (super fast, like daily switcharoos), I would swear I'm bipolar. I'm not, of course. I am depressed and having the occasional good day, but, geez.

Last night I went to sleep "writing" a screed on how deadly western society is. I'm not going to literally write it out, but let's just say that I'm glad I'm loved, as that gives me strength in the face of society's unending, ghastly pressure.

There have been good things, though. Page is maturing. I'm painting. The snow from the late storm is all but gone, and it came early enough that it didn't crush the daffodils. (The crocuses slough them off without a problem, but the daffodils' egos are too big to survive.) I'd post pics, but apparently I don't have enough space to spare here, so oh well. Maybe I'll get around to posting them on my website at some point. (ha ha ha)

Another good thing is that my GP thinks I shouldn't have a problem being approved for disability. I mean, she told me that I will almost certainly have to apply more than once ("I think they have someone whose sole job is to stamp 'declined' on the first application..."), but that's a weight off my mind. I really, really, really don't want to go to the effort required to file for disability only to find that I'm not disabled enough in my doctor's eyes. She thinks it's a good idea.

What else...

Oh, I've been rewatching (in binge fashion) Avatar: The Last Airbender. It really is a very good show. The Book of Korra sequel is okay, I suppose, but TLA is really very good, and not just as a cartoon. So that's, er, good. (<-- how words have been to me lately. Spoken AND written. *sobs*)

Anyway. Still here. Mostly lurking.

Oh, speaking of lurking, does anyone know what's up with [ profile] kribu? I've been gone so long, I don't know if there was an event, or if she just slid away like so many have. I've been thinking about her and her mom a lot, lately, hoping they're okay.

She posts sometimes and I still see her in good reads with book stuff.

I'm sorry you're blah. Hugs.

A:TLA... Wow, our whole house was glued to the TV when new episodes aired by the time season 3 came out. So many good lines, lines we still quote in our house: "Shush, chatty monkey." "It is time so ask the big questions: Who are you and what do you want?"

Ive done costumes for my daughter from A;TLA. She went as Toph one Halloween and when the movie came out, I made her a Pricess Yue costume, wig and all. It was a pity the movie sucked so badly.

Yeah, Korra did not live up to expectations. I think they tried to adult it up with an older late teen avatar with the audience growing up. I still have to watch season 4 of Korra, though I recently bought it on DVD. I'm hoping it will bring things to a close in a satisfactory fashion.

I kinda want to watch it all over again, but I don't want to wear it out... But it was nice rewatching it and finding it really is as good as I remembered.

I haven't seen the movie, nor do I plan to. An amazon review, of all things, solidified my resistance. I am morbidly curious, but I don't think I need that kind of crap littering my brain right now.

Korra just seems... shallow, somehow. Not Korra herself (though, well, she is, now that I think of it), but the story arcs. Granted, I've only watched the first and part of the second books, so it could get better. But given that I don't like any of the characters overmuch, I don't see why I should.

TL;DR: Agreed. :-D

I LOVE Avatar the last Airbender. It's a fantastic series. I also didn't like Korra quite as much, but it got a bit political and I lost interest. Too much like the real world to suit my version of escapism.

It really is! I was so happy that it was as good as I remembered.

There are a bunch of things I don't care for in Korra, including Korra herself. The political aspect of Korra is... too simplistic for my tastes. Granted, I'm speaking from only having seen the first and a few episodes of the second series. I don't know. It all feels very shallow to me, where the joy of A:TLA was the surprising level of depth to everything. *shrugs*

Eeek. I keep thinking I should keep up with LJ and then I just sort of ... forget.

I'm okay (well, terribly drained by work but that's hardly new) and mum's about the same as she's been for a while, if even less outdoors-y.

Mostly I've just been splitting my time between work and sighing dreamily over Peter Capaldi (I don't think this is about to change any time soon, not after meeting him in person) and ... well, not much to post about there. Twitter's been taking up almost all my social media time lately so yeah, just keep forgetting about LJ...

Also, on another note, Avatar was wonderful. I'm not really into this media at all but I watched the whole thing a couple of years ago and enjoyed it a great deal.

Yay! You are still out there!

I understand completely. I hope you're still taking lots of photos, though. Your talent is phenomenal.

Avatar was special. It really was. :-)
