I swear, I'm going to feed him to the sarlacc pit we have opening on the side of the house. It's a sinkhole, his name is Steve, military housing won't do anything about it.

 :lulz:

I have a gaping maw in my yard. It is either a gopher tortoise that keeps dragging in trash that is not ours, or a sinkhole that is attracting trash that is not ours. I'll take pictures and post them tomorrow.

It's been there long enough, to where I don't see it opening up and swallowing the house immediately, but if it did right now, it would just be so fucking apropos I'd probably let it suck me in drinking coffee and petting the cat like, "Oh, Wednesday the 67th of Maypril is here."

I was just informed that on top of there being no resources that aren’t utterly stomped flat, I will not get transportation to a train station and will be left to die if my only option is going to go be homeless in Chicago.

Unfortunately, every long distance train is booked for everything except going to Chicago.

So I have to catch a plane. Name a place to go, because they’re all absolutely identical to me currently: there is no support network anywhere and I have two hours to get my ticket.

Imagine, if you will, “I just shot Marvin in the face.”

Got it in your head? Real solid?

Good.

The entire universe is Marvin.

Not going to have the room up today, but tomorrow for sure. So much went wrong so hard and in coordinated fashion that the Malefic God thing is no longer theory to me. Gonna treat my wounds today and be at least suitable for personal interaction tomorrow, but goddamn it altered was not in any way exaggerating about the Marvin thing.

Blame me, unintentional plagiarism. I used that (knowing you use Marvin getting shot often enough, and I did mention it’s your thing to say) to shorten “the idea of fun and joy got shot in the head at 20 paces by accident and now I’m just watching the corpse get dragged around on the end of a tow chain”.

This is true, and I know it's your thing Dok. I was specifically referring to the post upthread, but was not perhaps as clear as I should have been.

It's all good.  I mean, it's not like I came up with it.

For the sake of keeping everyone else sane, I’ll be leaving for an indefinite period of time real soon. It’s been good being back, but I don’t want to subject you folks to me in the cyclic rage/begging/complete breakdown state I’m going to be in.

I’ll rejoin when I feel okay, no worries there. Just for now, it’s best for everyone if I stay disconnected.
