Well, I've finally finished most of my coat. Almost all of the collar, anyway. It's much bigger, now (longer and wider), but also thinner, so I don't need to worry about the damn thing scrunching into oblivion. However, I still have quite a bit of work left to do on it, before it's complete. It's a good thing I learned the tailoring trade when I was little, or I would be up a creek without a paddle, on it.
I really think I need to learn to stop putting myself into a trance state when I'm talking to people. Granted, it does help with giving my body a LITTLE bit of rest, but at the same time, it doesn't quite help when I end up 'submerging' myself when I only want to go into a shallow trance. And by "submerging" myself, I mean that I am still completely conscious, but I am as unresponsive as a person in a coma. And along with that, all things tend to 'freeze', to me, so I can't tell what the Hell is going on when or how.
The one problem with it is that I haven't figured out how to pull myself out of the trance, instantly, yet, and I still seem to go a little too far, while only intending to go into a shallow trance. Hence, I end up looking like I'm sleeping.
The big 'loop' in that, though?-- I barely move, At All. Sadly, that's the one way a person can tell I've entered a self-trance, and funny enough, no one else can do put me into that state. It's one step shy and yet one further than my deepest meditative state. Don't ask me how that works, because I wouldn't be able to explain it to you very well, unless you are at least vaguely familiar with trance-state and meditation.
The only reason I say all this is because I made the mistake, Yet Again, Tonight, of putting myself in trance, so I could think about something, and I keep trying to keep myself responsive, for the sole point of relaying what I'm focusing on. Unfortunately, I still haven't gotten far enough with trance-state to be able to pull myself out instantly, so I ended up STUCK in that damn state for two hours. Oddly enough, the only reason I knew (and still know) it was that long is because I put myself into trance at about eleven, and finally 'stepped' or 'broke' out of it at almost two. Along with that, I keep getting that "light" feeling in my feet, while in the trance, and the next thing I knew, I come out with my hands posed like I was setting a Seal. For those who aren't familiar with something called "Will Magick", that isn't good, with me. (i.e., I sensed an intruder when I came out of it.
As in something followed you back? Or you just became more aware of something that may have already been there?
Currently working on the sleeves for my coat. Once they're done, the Collar is next. I have the back piece finished, and thuse far, it's all looking great, apart from the lacking sleeves. I should have it done soon, though. But even after this, there is still at least another thing after the collar is done.
Some people do not want to believe any thing that they do not want to accept or that do not want to understand. I hate that crap when it happens.
It's very likely that I'll be out of contact for awhile. At&t is deciding to be pathetic, and raise the bill for a charge of use I haven't used, so my phone will be shut off for awhile as a result.
Once I have a new phone and number, I'll be letting some people know the number, so I can be contacted. But don't be surprised if that takes awhile. I'm pretty damn sure that everyone is aware of the government shutdown, of late, and frankly, I know full well, that though some might not acknowledge it, everything is going to end up going straight to Hell, because of it.
Sad, really. I don't need a degree in it to know what's going to happen. This is just one reason I've been making plans to move. I know that won't fix the shutdown situation or anything financial, but it will at least be something I feel is right.
I understand what you mean. Even if they extend everything to keep it from all shutting down, it will just be a matter of time before every thing completely shuts down sooner or later. I know a lot of people that I have talked to that say "oh they won't shut every thing down" I had to quit talking to them about it because they are not seeing the reality of it all. I think most people are watching t.v and playing video games and living in fantasy land to see what is really going on around them. I have had people get down right hateful with me about it all, calling me a doomsday conspiracy person... lol!
I have a new military coat, from WWII, now. Bulgarian Army, actually. I have to say one thing about it-- the man I got it from took Damn good care of it. It isn't very often one finds a piece of clothing from anything before Vietnam, that is in good condition. But then, this thing was also made to last. Granted, it's a mix of wool and "mole hair", as they call it. But damn. It 'flows' like a fine leather.
But I also need to do a few alterations on it, so it suits me more. It is a little bit wide in the top half.
There is definitely something wrong with this sites software. And people wonder why I'm working on "HTF".
Well, I won't be on here, anymore, as long as I use my computer. But I can and will still be here with my phone. At least, that way, there is a lesser window to be used for whatever is going on. Every time I'm on here, with the computer, the wireless modem goes on the fritz.
If anyone else is dealing with this, then let me know, because I have a feeling that Cancer just won't do anything about it, or Can't do anything about it, which either way, is getting on my nerves. I'm no geek, but I'm no idiot either. If anyone wishes to contact me for something (especially if to join in with the progress of my and my sister's Community, "HTF"), then leave me a message, and I'll leave you either with my number or my personal e-mail address (for which I may need you to do the same). I'll be using my phone to do most things in connection with the Rave, so the response time may be somewhat limited, for a little while.
However, I think I may also have a word with Cancer, himself, if I am able to do so, because if there are more people than just myself having this problem, then I have a strange feeling that Cancer may also have a leech, somewhere in his little plethora of friends. I don't feel like having the same thing happen, with HTF, because I don't feel like having other peoples' lives compromised in any way, just because of information being stolen and then used to make someone else rich.
"HTF" is a place for those who are seeking it. Otherwise, it wouldn't be so damn remote. The one thing about it that "stands out in the crowd" is Me, and there is a damn good reason for that. In any case, this is beginning to feel like a "rant", which isn't really my intent.
I swear, some barbers are positively Insane. I don't know how or why, but I just watched a video of a bunch of barbers showing off their skills, and one of these characters - a maniac, at that - I cutting a woman's hair With A BLOW TORCH. All I can say to this is "What The Hell???"
Professional or not, that's one thing that makes me glad I do my own cutting and style. Just give me a decent sized, strong blade, and a sharpening stone, and I'm good with that. At least I don't have to pay for a barber.
