It takes some patting around on the floor to find the pieces of your flashlight.

You crouch next to a glow-line to illuminate it. The glow pulls you forward; the broken flashlight anchors you.

With some swearing & some duct tape from your EDC pack, you get the thing working.

Then you shine it over the room and gulp.

When you grabbed the wall to stop yourself - that was a skeleton you grabbed.

A Ā½-meter ahead is a deep pit.

Even the floor carvings look ominous.

Health 

Getting temporarily transferred to another hospital for a surgery they don't do at this one. Sigh.

this etsy shop has a lot of great disability aids and queer stuff but this "I'm here, I'm queer, my chronic pain is moderate to severe" really gets me on a personal level.

So you wake up one day and decide to take over the world, right? Okay, valid. What's the plan, robots, mutants, hypnoray, what?
Robots? Cool. So you study, and build, and it's fascinating, and then you look up forty years later and you are giving a retirement speech.
Um. Thanks.

Health, neg 

Today feels very backslidy even though a lot of it is treatment. I just want to get better, dammit.

One of the things I've always had in the back of my mind is having a "go bag" of emergency supplies just in case. Clothing was always something I scratch my head on. This is a great solution for many situations.

One thing I've been thinking about is how to add in a minor holiday about emergency preparedness. Like, a day or week of updating emergency contact info, replenishing first aid kits, changing the water in the basement jugs, checking the smoke/CO detectors, cleaning the basement so the go-bag is accessible, etc.

The cops keep trying to make Neighborhood Night Out a thing in early August, and that would actually be a good tie-in - neighbor contacts are important. OTOH, it's sponsored by cops.

Today's : Added 13 pairs of one of a kind to my shop. Birdsite and FB got individual posts as those platforms encourage flooding. Here's one pair, stainless steel with antique glass flower beads, as a sample. ko-fi.com/andrewragland/shop

Bonus ! The nursing has returned to stock! This stretchy, colorful necklace was designed for nursing mothers, to give little hands something to grab besides Mommy's hair. It's of course also suitable as wear. ko-fi.com/s/e8b0be0186
