I’ve often joked that the way the Megatokyo storyline has held together all these years (as much as it has held together) is that there must be a part of my brain that is writing this story but doesn’t like to talk to me often. With that in mind, I was a little amused when a good friend of mine pointed out this particular Megatokyo comic from way back in October of 2001: “my heart skipped a beat...”
Great, not only does that side of my brain not talk to me, but it knows my future medical history and has been mocking me about it for over ten years now. (shakes fist at that side of my brain) All joking aside, the metaphoric possibilities presented by cardiac problems can make for fertile story material (like in, say, Katawa Shoujo) which... or at least I know it probably will be at some point.
Speaking of that stuff... I’m going in for a cardiac catheterization tomorrow morning. I’ve never had any sort of procedure done before (the biggest thing I’ve ever dealt with was having my wisdom teeth pulled) so I admit I’m a little freaked out about it right now, though logically I know its nothing to worry about. I’ve been deliberately NOT reading up on the procedure because I’ve talked with enough people close to me who’ve also had it done and they’ve told me not to worry it’s no big deal so I’m just gonna trust them. For the record, the doc doesn’t think they are going to find any blockage or anything wrong (I don’t have any indicators of those things) so this is very much a diagnostic procedure to rule out a bunch (like blockage) of things so they can focus on what they think is really the problem (heart rhythm (electrical)) It’s outpatient, I’ll be home by the afternoon.
Above I’ve posted a bit of artwork - a pencil drawing of miho I did a few days ago. Been doing a lot more pencil drawings lately, and now that I have a good setup for broadcasting live drawings from my desk, I can freely move between digital and pencil/COPIC work and still bore you guys to tears with the pace of my arting. :P
Oh, the fact that my art days are called “Dead Piro Days” seems amazingly insensitively inappropriate for right now so... let’s just call it an art day, ok? :P Ok, maybe I’m being a bit of a dramadere, sorry, it’s how I’m made. >_>
Finally, a note to all of you with outstanding MegaGear orders - I put in as much work as I could over the past few days to get things printed and put together to get your orders ready to ship. Hopefully, I can get back to the warehouse on Tuesday and start sending some of those orders out. As a thank you for your patience, I’ll be sending along free character sketches with all orders over a week old as a thank you for bearing with me as I struggle through these health problems. Thank you.
