To Post, or Not to Post

That is the question.

We’ve composed a lengthy post that explains a lot about Stephanie’s situation. Possibly it explains too much?

I keep scheduling it to go live, and the other Violet keeps reverting it back to a Draft so it won’t go live.

I don’t know if anyone even reads this stuff any more.

Is there anyone still here?

Does anyone want to know what’s happened?

EdgeWalk

Posted 2017.07.07 8.48 in DID, Pointless Blather by Stephanie

This week I crossed a little something off my bucket list — I went for a walk around the CN Tower.

Around the outside of the CN Tower.

1160 feet above the sidewalk.

1160 feet over Toronto

They call this the Edgewalk, where you go up ontop of the restaurant thing, 116 stories above ground level, and go out and enjoy the view.

They also get you doing stunts, like leaning backwards out over the void, leaning forwards out over the void, and balance walking right on the very edge.

It was pretty darn awesome.

Best parts: The sheer vertigo when first walking outside and your body is like Woah no way this is bullshit but your brain is like Yeah this is an excellent view and it’s totally safe.

And at the end, we had 2 minutes or so to wait before going back inside. So 2 minutes without the guide telling you what to do, when I could just enjoy the view and the experience. I did the forward leaning out thing just for the view and the fun.

Worst part: I did not enjoy the backward lean part. Forward was great. Backward was not. Don’t know why. Maybe I need to see where I’m going?

Anyhow, it was great, a bit pricey, but a heck of an experience.

I wouldn’t mind doing it again some time. I think it’d be more fun a second time, as you would already know what to expect and could really just relax enjoy the whole thing.

Lack of Posts

Posted 2017.07.07 8.37 in DID, Pointless Blather by Stephanie

I’ve been completely absent for months, sorry about that.

1) I’ve been focused mostly on health. Fitness. Became one of those people who watches everything she eats, and works out every single day.

I know, I’m shocked too. Now and then I stop and wonder who am I, and what have I done with the real Stephanie.

I’ve been writing a big long post about this (since January!) but I’m not ready to share it quite yet.

2) I’m more active* on Twitter, follow me there for ongoing proof of life.

(By ‘more active’ I mean, I post more than once every 6 months. I’m not tweeting nonstop all the boring minutia I encounter.)

Car for Sale (Sold!)

Updated Oct/4th – It’s sold!

After not posting anything in months, how about a little self-serving ad?

I am selling my beloved Rav 4. I’ve had it for 15 years and hate to part with it, but it is time. Very low mileage and well looked after, only 120,258 km.

The Blanket Connundrum

Posted 2016.05.31 9.41 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

I have this blanket that’s super soft and warm. My mum gave it to me years ago. It’s just perfect.

Except in one corner there’s a tag that’s sort of scratchy and itchy. So I always make sure that’s at the bottom where it won’t irritate me.

Invariably when I’m cold and I grab the blanket in the middle of the night, it’s all backwards and I end up with the tag in my face or by my arm and end up having to turn the thing all around to get it right.

Every so often I stop and think: I could just cut off the tag. Then there won’t be an itchy corner, and I will never have to worry about whether or not the blanket is right-side-up or up-side-down.

But I never actually cut off the tag.

Because I am worried that without the tag…

I won’t actually be able to tell if the blanket is right-side-up or not.
