Venia's Mouth

Venia and the Hugs

The new Venia's Travels is online. I wrote the script while on antibiotics and in the middle of caffeine withdrawals. The first half came to me in a dream.

It looks like I'm totally giving up coffee and tea and probably alcohol. I haven't had caffeine in days, and it'd been pretty minimal amounts for weeks. I haven't had alcohol in almost a month. But it's going to be weird--I've only been drinking alcohol for around three years, but I've been a coffee lover since high school. This sucks. I guess I'll be getting apple cider at Starbucks now, at least until my body decides it doesn't want that, either.

I think I'm past the withdrawals now, but I'm pretty sure I'm less of an alert person this way. Maybe man was not meant to aspire to coffee, and like Icarus, my wings have been burnt. No wonder Apollo always seems so jittery.

Bad Guts

Last night's tweets;

Wooden eggs think numbly of Orson Welles.
Some dry substances greatly fear water.
The melted world slug beside Kraken gels.
A fountain pen gestates the big blotter.

Feeling exceptionally awful to-day. Some sites say depression and anxiety are symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, so maybe the fact that I'm so depressed and anxious is a good sign. I think I only got around five hours of sleep thanks to the nausea and worry.

I actually managed to buy some health insurance online through Blue Shield of California, but my coverage doesn't start until the first of December. I don't know if I can last until then. What'll happen if I can't? I guess maybe I'll go to the emergency room or something. That's a healthcare system failure, U.S. government.

Not having the easiest time concentrating right now. I think maybe I'll see if a movie can raise my spirits, though this thing has mainly put me in a mood for Cronenberg movies.

Be kind to each other, people.

Here are a couple new videos--the first is from a couple nights ago, the second was last night. A spider for the first time in a long time. The music's from the Neon Genesis Evangelion soundtrack, one of the many versions of "Fly Me to the Moon", this one called "Losing the Object of One's Affection."
