    More of George’s Phone Follies: A while back, I had to delete my phone’s entire custom dictionary because every time I began typing a word that began with the letter F, it wouldn’t stop suggesting “fuckfuckfuckityfuck” (which I used ONCE in a chapter of “Country Summer”).

    I love my parents.
    I’m at work late. I turn around and the arizona rain hit. Its raining sideways the wind is howling and moaning and my car is in the farthest reaches of the parking lot.
    and my parents of all people drive up and help me to my car.

    It’s been over seven years since RUSH released Clockwork Angels, and nothing has changed. I still fall into an all-encompassing, skin-prickling, lung-stilling, and soul-rending state of ecstasy every time I hear “The Wreckers.” The problem? My hubby has crazy-narrow tastes in music and can’t comprehend how I can love that song so much. It’s true, but I feel like telling him “it makes my ears jizz themselves” would be poorly received by someone who only enjoys music with screaming in it.
    Seriously. My ears need a smoke after the song’s over. It’s that freakin’ good.

    So I’m working on Part Nine of The Woman in the Statue (the goal is to be done around the 18th), and I wanted to describe the lobby of the Van Dijk building, but how big is it?
    Now I could just bullshit this...but you all know I won’t.
    So the building is about 300 meters tall and is a regular octagon in cross section (meaning all eight sides are the same length).  If the lobby in which Chloe, Luzurial and the assault team fight hybrids takes up one entire side (“edge” in geometric terms), how big across is it?
    Well, if we assume the building has a base diameter of one sixth of its height, then it’s 50 m in diameter and thus has a circumradius (the radius of the circle connecting all eight vertices/corners of the octagon) of 25 m.  Each eighth of the octagon can be described as an isosceles triangle with two sides 25 m long (since those “sides” are the circumradius) meeting at an angle of 45 degrees.  So now I have to find the missing side.
    Just to remind everyone that I am not a math major, I literally had to use Google to be reminded that an isosceles triangle is just two right triangles smooshed together, which I really should have remembered from 9th Grade Geometry.  Anyway, since the sine (0.3826834323650897717284599840304) of one angle (22.5 degrees) of a right triangle is equal to the length of the opposite side divided by the length of the hypotenuse (25 m), and then we multiply that result (9.56708580912724429321149960076) by two to get the end of the isosceles…
    So the lobby is about nineteen meters wide.  Why do I do this to myself?

    I was a dead star shone red into the infinite dark I bled
    A dying city my inhabitants long dead
    maintenance kept me just shy of that envied flat-line
    My roots dug deep
    your branches mixed with mine and my roots together entwine with thee and thine
    Until I could no longer tell were you me?
    Or was I mine?
    Did I bleed out? Or did you bleed in?
    A death that lasted yet was not mine
    But was thee and thine
    Here at the end
    Time’s Den
    To see with Dead and Dying sight
    A strange mix of you and me
    and through thine blooded light
    A stranger’s might.
    Impossibly bright.
    Beginning.

    Well, desperate enough to use sleep aid last night, so I’m well rested today… but a little groggy. Drinking iced coffee. Working on my story’s second chapter. It’s nearing 4k words, but I have a ton more to write…. Still need Harry Potter content requests for my story to fill in future chapters. The story is both Slash and Het, featured in the Threesome/Moresome category…
