Absolutely wonderful

So today, I dont even know how it even happened, my awesome Cthulhu canvas got damaged.  Not a small bit, but a disgusting long line around 8 inches I'd guess.  There were a couple other lines that I managed to patch up easily, but they were across one area of the same colour.  This one...its just all over the place when it comes to colours.  I cant repair this.  Going to ask around some of the painting stores if they know places that do canvas painting repairs.  My two worries is how much will they charge me, and can they do it well.  This isnt something I can afford at the moment either but I'm furious this got damaged.  I dont even know how this happened.  I'm super careful with all my shit.  Heres a picture of my shame.

And what it used to look like before I managed to screw it all up.

I dont know how it happened.  But I'm taking the blame for it before it was in my room and fuck knows.

The Fire Inside

Last week on monday I decided to get myself this curry dish from a place I like but rarely get to eat at because of never having the energy to get there early enough.  I was there early this time and thought good going con you legend.  So I got my food and headed home.  Jed had logged on about the time I got back so I told him to wait while I finished my food quickly.

Now when I eat I generally do it at a leisurely pace.  I dont eat fast.  But seeing we only ever have an hour or two max once or twice a week at best, I couldnt do that.  Nor could I put the food away for later because it just wouldnt be the same after.  So I destroyed it in under 5min.  I got comfortable at my computer and had a drink of water after.  We finished gaming and all was well.

At least it should have been.  Later that night I couldn't hold back.  Straight to the toilet!  And this process repeated itself every hour or so for another 8-9 times.  Now I'm unsure if it was food poisoning because the food wasnt fresh, or if it was the amount of concentrated curry powder and other crap I tasted in it and eating nothing else that day.  I used to be able to do this in the past but I guess thats not how things work now.  Still, it was unusual..  I went to the doctor that morning to see if he could give me something to sort it out as I hadnt been able to sleep.  I had to time my visit there so I was home before the next explosion.  I got my prescription, went home, and ate the pills.  For the next 8-9 hours nothing.  It was wonderful.  And then it came crashing down once again.

Boomboomboom every hour.  I was up to 15-16 times.  So sooooooooore.  And then by afternoon it stopped.  The pills seemed to finally be taking effect for good.  Those 3 days were murderous.  I probably only had about 3-4 hours sleep the entire time.  On the 4th day I slept till late afternoon.  It's been exactly a week since and I'm back to full strength.  But that was a hellish period that I dont want to experience ever again.  Now I'd like to mention I've had curry dishes twice before that over the past couple months, both at different places, and nothing happened.  However in the past when I had a similar experience, though not as cataclysmic but close to it, was from this same place.  So whether its the freshness of the food or the amount of pure spice they put into their food, I plan to do the smart course of action and stay clear of them.  My stomach is not suited to their excessive seasoning.  Nor is my arse.

Sir Christopher Lee has died

If there was ever an actor that meant a lot to me it was him.  I started watching his Dracula movies when I was 6.  Considering they were rated R18 you'd think I'd have been terrified.  But I absolutely loved them and would watch them repeatedly.  I followed his movies as I grew up which was very hard to do in the 80s and 90s.  Once the internet was fully fleshed out I got a chance to track down all the movies I'd missed or not known about.  Even getting my hands on his autobiography and the huge hardcover books from the Hammer horror films which had plenty of pictures of him from his days filming dracula and even quotes from him.

While I was lucky enough to get a personally signed book from him with my name written too, I never got to meet him in person.  Absolutely kills me I never managed this.  I'll forever be envious of all the people who got to speak to him and even call him their friend.  Would have loved so much to be able to sit there and listen to him speak and tell stories and everything.  The world has lost a titan of cinema.  One of the last of the old school actors.  He reached the amazing age of 93.  He is the reason I love horror so much.  It's strange getting emotional over someone I've never met.  But hes an exception to the rule for me.   There will be no more movies.  No more songs.  No more personal video recordings from him on youtube.  It's a dark day.  Forever a legend.
