Yes, I’ve Been Somewhat Silent

My lack of commentary isn’t because I don’t have any or don’t care although some things in RA Universe I don’t care about. But rather it’s because I’ve been sick. I’ve gotten sick more times in the last almost two years than I did the entire, uh, I’d rather not say, but it’s decades. I simply have seldom gotten sick. My mother kept me home from school one time for sickness in the 7th grade. That’s when I got the Hong Kong flu. It lasted for two weeks. I also got a case of walking pneumonia in college that took about a month to get over. I’ve had the flu one other time since then, but it didn’t last but a few days. I’ve had a few ailments along the way but nothing major.

In fact, I’m one of those people who if I feel myself getting sick, I say to myself, “I will not be sick.” I just refuse to cave into it! This almost always works. But lately, it’s not working, and part of the reason is that I have not been taking care of myself. I stopped taking vitamins and drinking enough liquids and it’s caught up with me. So yeah, I’m to blame for the state of affairs.

But back to commentary. I almost always have commentary. It’s a curse that I’m so full of opinions. SO’s take on that is why does anyone want to hear everyone’s opinions all the time almost non-stop including mine? Don’t people get tired of incessant editorializing? He’s right to some degree, but he’s wrong that you can run a blog and not come with opinions and come with them a lot. It’s the nature of the beast, and I’m still full of opinions about Mr. Richard Armitage and associated people, etc. I can’t help it. If I’ve spent this much time paying attention, dammit, I’m going to have some opinions. :D

Yep, that’s right, Rich, I’m still going to give my cussed opinions about some of your moves. To which SO says, “That poor guy. I hope he doesn’t read all that stuff.”

Now for a picture:

This is an expression of my opinion about the virus I have. I would like to shoot it in the ass.

Other than all of that, I need to get my dwarf pieces done, but I’ve got time. I have 12, and they just need to be done by the wide release of Battle of the Five Armies. Then again, if that doesn’t happen, I’m not too worried. Researching these guys has been such a pleasure, I think you will enjoy hearing what I found no matter when I put them up.


  1. You shoot that virus, my friend! And I for one always want to hear your opinions and editorializing, because you’re one of the few who cut through the crap. I hope Richard DOES read your stuff. He needs to know there are people out there who are still grounded in reality. Hope you’re feeling better soon, and Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  2. Thanks, Gretchen. I’m really touched. Although now may not be good time for me to show how in touch with reality I am, Currently, I am super doped up on meds. I mean I’m higher than a kite. That’s why I can type. Before I really medicated myself, I could barely lift my head off my pillow. I’ll pay for this energy tomorrow, but it’s fun after several days of no fun. When it takes everything you have to walk a few steps to the bathroom and you almost run into the wall before you get there? yeah, that’s not fun

  3. Not fun at all. You poor thing! Looking forward to reading the 12-part series, whenever you can get to it! But rest, first. And medicate. Medicaaaaaaaate…. :)

  4. Sorry to see you’re poorly Frenz. These thing take time and a lot of patience. Post about the dwarves and express your opinion when you feel well again. We’re all looking forward to it xx

  5. Thank you, Suse. :)

  6. Gretchen, I’m medicatin’ to my heart’s content. :D

  7. Wishing you hot soup and plenty of rest!

  8. get well soon and do take those vitamins ;-)

  9. I agree with Gretchen. It’s nice to know you are there, speaking from a place grounded in reality. Though you never claim to speak on bahalf of us, it feels like you represent us non-crazies in an intelligent, considerate way. Thanks, and wishes for good health right away!

  10. Frenz, you need to take care of YOU first! Don’t worry, we’ll all be here when you get back. Or do I have to send RA over to yell at you? (JK). Seriously though, I do hope you get to feeling better soon. Hugs!!!

  11. Feel better soon, Frenz!

  12. I hope you are feeling better by now :) and had a great Thanksgiving!

  13. I trust that by now you are back in tip top shape. :-)

  14. Not yet, but I’m getting there. ;)

    Good to see you around again. really enjoy your blog.

  15. Thank you all so much for the good wishes and prayers. I cannot tell you how much it encouraged me. I have honestly never been sick like this, and I have new found sympathy for those with chronic illness. I’m taking that as the good part of this experience.
