End Transmission

Posted 2017.12.04 15.25 in Uncategorized by Violet

The transmissions have been fading for a while now, becoming more sporadic, longer gaps in between posts.

As of November 16, 2017 we have lost track of Stephanie completely. She’s either hiding, or dormant, or maybe off on a long vacation?

Maybe she’s actually gone back to “Planet Stephanie”.

At any rate, none of us have been able to get through to her.

Consequently, we’re officially going to ‘end transmission’ here.┬áIf we ever do hear back from her, we’ll post it here. Otherwise… thanks for tuning in over the years.

Talking in metaphors here. Stephanie is not missing in the ‘speak to the police’ kind of way. It’s a metaphor. Chill.

2009 – The Year In Review

Posted 2009.12.31 17.59 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

As the last hours of 2009 wind down, it seems like a good time to review the year, how it summed up against other years. And generally speaking, it fairly well sucked. There were a few good points, lots of sucky things, and overall, I think 2009 is getting a failing grade.

In fact 2009 was sucky enough that it actually reached back in time and ruined the last half of 2008. It was just that sucky. 2009 – The Year Of Suck.

So back to 2009. What were some of the good things? The whole aquarium thing has been a big positive. Sure it’s a bit of a money-sink, a lot of work, and some responsibility. But it’s very relaxing and enjoyable, and I can’t help smiling when I watch the fishies and snailies playing. Especially the wee babies. Les is doing well with the big fish, the nursery tank is full of snail babies and a couple corydora babies. All-in-all the aquarium stuff lets me forget about my own problems for a while and just observe their simple and care-free comings and goings.

Of course, I haven’t forgotten about my kitties. Misha and Pixie continue to amuse, bemuse, annoy, and purr. Misha is wonderfully affectionate when she wants to be. Even Pixie is getting affectionate now and then, in her own derranged way. Though I must add, even though it’s been four or five years, I still miss Sylvie, and think of him almost every day. It’s mostly happy memories though, so it’s all good.
