๐ŸŒŸ Terms Of Service Updated ๐ŸŒŸ

Updates to my website won’t publish for a few days but there have been a couple of major changes (along with the tiniest rate increase) so I wanted to let everyone know here too. These are good things for a change! Lol. ๐Ÿ˜Š Only new Trello cards will contain the updated info, so if your card conflicts with this, the info in this journal trumps that:

๐ŸŒˆ Starting today, you may color any line art I make for you, or pay someone else to color them. You may NOT edit the line art itself, remove, resize or obscure my signature, or color the art to include gore, bodily fluids, or hateful content. When someone other than me colors my line art, you must ALWAYS clearly state that I did the line art and the coloring was done by someone else.

๐ŸŒˆ The limitation to posting the high-res online has been removed. You may post larger sizes than I provide freely. I will continue to provide a web-size for your convenience.

This changes apply retroactively if you’ve commissioned artwork from me before!

Blank Pages [Art by Nazz, Colors & BG by Me]

A Patreon reward line art I got from Nazznikonanuke that I colored and added a background to! It’s Gideon faced with a bit of a daunting prospectโ€ฆ

You’ll be getting acquainted with Gideon very soon, in the next chapter of Meganeea.

๐Ÿ„ You may NOT copy, color, reference, repost or use this artwork in any way or claim it as your own. Original line art by Nazznikonanuke on FA.

Okay Maybe I Do Need To See The Doctor…

I’ve been trying hard to ignore this, since my MRIs came basically clear. But something is still not right.

You might recall I had a big scare with “exertion headaches” (basically… TMI ahead, though I’ve mentioned it before… thunderclap headaches when I orgasm. The headaches, and the orgasms, were new experiences and came together.) My doctor was deeply worried and I had two MRIs. Nothing seemed amiss so she said I could continue, using painkillers for the headaches when they happened.

As weeks wore on, I no longer had a headache every time. Then suddenly, I did again: worse than before and this time on the other side of my head.

With the headaches came tingling, both in the area of the pain (the tingling starts first actually) and on my neck… my back… my extremities. Clearly this seems to be either blood pressure related or a pinched nerve or a spine issue, but anyway it is not going away. It’s stressful and worrysome and of course I can no longer enjoy what for me was a new discovery because I’m afraid I’m going to have a stroke or something.

My follow-up with the neurologist was in November, and until today I felt like I would wait, but I no longer feel safe doing so. I tried calling today but they were already closed, so I suppose I will call tomorrow.

Pumpkin Pie Time ๐Ÿฅง [Base by Ghostcritter]

After putting it off for ages I finally completed a Thanksgiving icon for myself using this base by Ghostcritter. I had a blast with it!

Getting Better At Cooking! โœจ

I’ve been trying really hard to be a better wife to my husband cause he just does SO SO much for me and I feel like I fall so short. So at least I want to cook every day and to cook well. I don’t always succeed but I’m getting better and better, and since I try new recipes constantly, it’s kinda fun.

The other day we had catfish fillets with really good potatoes and kalamata olives and string beans salad. I made everything including prepping the fillets but I let Christopher fry them because they were SO expensive… $16.00 for four fillets! And I was too stressed about ruining them. Mostly I’ve been cooking without help though.

This was my favorite of all recent meals so I took a photo.

๐Ÿฏ Rudyard Is Here!! ๐Ÿฏ

Iโ€™ve finally acquired one of my most wanted Charlie Bears for this year: Konig! Iโ€™ve named mine Rudyard. I knew he was a cute one but I was blown away when I opened the box!

Just look at his lovely paws and sweet face! ๐Ÿ˜ญ I was almost in tears from joy. I canโ€™t put into words how happy these bears make me. Nothing Iโ€™ve collected before makes me feel this way. They make these horrible times so much better.

Heโ€™s really big, too, one of my biggest Charlie Bears along with Wilfy (the one I call Toby.) I took a photo of Rudy with me for scale:

Iโ€™m gonna have him wear one of the Hal and Macy sweaters that are coming in the mail, but I havenโ€™t decided what Iโ€™ll do about his outfit otherwise. Being so big, lots of baby clothes would fit him, so Iโ€™ll think about it carefully to give him the perfect look!
