  1. Thanks for thinking of me, @LilyElizabeth! There's just so much going on right now I'm a tad overwhelmed. As far as my recovery goes, I've hit a road stop. I had some separation in the stitches (much worse on the right breast than the left) and it set my recovery back another three weeks. I'm seeing my doctor weekly, which is lovely because I'm the type to freak out. She's been amazingly compassionate, understanding, and calming. So I'm not overly worried, I'm just frustrated that it's taking so long to heal. I've been unable to look at my wounds because it grosse
  2. It’s with great sadness our friends at JordanCon announced they will have to cancel the convention for 2020. In a statement released earlier today, Jennifer Liang, the convention chair of JordanCon said: It may take some time to work out all the details, including prepaid merchandise, members's tickets, and the hotel room blocks. Showing patience and understanding during this hectic time can go a long way for the JordanCon staff and board of directors. Many of these smaller conventions are taking massive hits from the Covid-19 pandemic. As a non-profit, J

  4. Welcome back to another Community Round-Up. There’s been a lot happening online as the world around us crumbles. First up, JordanCon is holding a “Fantastic Artifacts Through the Ages March Madness.” It’s a 16-bracket game with artifacts from all over the sci-fi/fantasy realm (many are Wheel of Time related, of course). Voting on the first bracket has begun: Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and also Norse mythology) vs the One Ring (from Lord of the Rings). Go cast your vote! Earlier this week, Jaymie Greenway highlighted the mo

  6. That sounds awful, Mother! I’m sure I would have fainted too if I saw a hole in my pinky. Blugh. When I looked at my wounds I was laying in bed just in case I did get woozy. It wasn’t as bad as I’d feared though. And I didn’t look long. Lol!
  7. Thank you all for your continued thoughts! I’m healing as best I can. On Monday, the surgery lasted five and a half hours. There was a lot to take! I wasn’t thrilled with how quickly they released me. I don’t remember the car ride home—though I talked non stop—and I only gained consciousness when we pulled up to our house. The pain was so minimal the first day, but by the second I was taking the pain killers they gave me. I had my post-op appointment on Wednesday and the doctor said everything was looking good! My anxiety hit hard at her office because
  8. Welcome back to another edition of Community Round-Up where we highlight all the latest happenings in The Wheel of Time fandom and the larger Sci-Fi/Fantasy community. This week there have been some major reports about the Amazon Prime show. Adam Whitehead went into detail about the four directors picked for Season 1. The four selected are being celebrated for their diversity. To see more of their resume and what to expect from them behind the camera, you can read Adam’s article here. Theoryland is still going strong with Matt Hatch’s The Dusty Wheel podca

  10. The surgery is tomorrow at noon. I can't eat after midnight tonight so we're going to gorge on pizza at 11pm. *lol* My anxiety has been pretty low so far, but I will have to take my Xanax tonight before bed and tomorrow before the surgery. I'm just ready for it to be over so I can focus on being happy in my body. I'll keep you posted on how it goes! Thank you all for your positive thoughts!
  11. JordanCon is a little more than a month away, and while we’re all looking forward to seeing our Wheel of Time friends and family again, we need to take a moment and address the current state of the world. As the Covid 19 virus is becoming more widespread, JordanCon wants all members—past, present, and future—to know they are taking every necessary precaution. JordanCon stated on Facebook earlier this week: Obviously keeping everyone safe is the top priority. But as long as conditions remain stable, the show will go on! Purchasing refundable plane tickets might be some

  13. The deadline to purchase the JordanCon 2020 anthology Become Legend is fast approaching! Order by March 25th to ensure you get a copy. This week’s author interview is with Saki Marie Harp talking about her addition “The Storyteller.” First, can you tell us about your writing? Is this your first published work? I have been writing for fun since my teacher told me I had written a brilliant story in first grade. After a spinal injury, I began writing for sanity. I don’t have the stamina to write proper novels, so I tend toward short stories and poetry.

  15. Do you want to breathe new life into your hardback set of The Wheel of Time novels? If so, Juniper Books has just released a set of dust jackets that encompass all fourteen books within the main series and includes New Spring, the prequel. Juniper Books specializes in creating dust jackets that have a visual aesthetic. The Wheel of Time set shows an image of a dragon with the ancient symbol of the Aes Sedai in the background. The complete set together looks stunning and can be visually appealing on anyone’s bookshelf. If you already have all the books in the ser

  17. I have no idea what PAX paint is! But I bet a bald cap would come in handy for an orc cosplay. Any updates on how it's coming together?
  18. Oh! Since I heard some Asian business are struggling with racism due to myths about the coronavirus, my hubby and I are eating at lots of Asian food places. We went to two different locations this week. Hopefully more next week. I want to support our local Asian-American community. For dinner tonight I had vegetarian (which has been kinda difficult at a few of the restaurants) eggplant garlic, with vegetable lo mein and steamed rice. YUM!
  19. Oh, I think I get it! I ship it! For Arie! ❤️ *bow chika bow wow*
  20. Good points, Liitha! I do understand I may not get exactly what I want. At the same time, I'm paying a lot of money for this so I want it done the way I want. *lol* Anything smaller would be better, and that's what I need to focus on. As for bikinis... what do you think of this one?
  21. Thank you all for your love and support! When I feel the overwhelming fear, I remember to focus on the positive outcome: I looked at bikinis at Target the other day and fantasized about being able to fit in one! I bought a shirt online that's a tad too small; it a few weeks, it'll fit! I'll be able to exercise without using the sports bra that fits in the cup, but not the band that I had to sew so it'll stay on and it's impossible to get on, and more impossible to take off while sweaty! I'm torn with wanting the next weeks to go by fast and dreading the surgery date
  22. *lol* The more chocolate, the merrier! Thanks, Ryrin! I'm gonna have to bake this weekend now that I've seen so many yummy treats!
  23. So, I've decided after a very long debate with myself to get a breast reduction. (This is why I labeled it read at your own risk! There'll be a lot of bitching about women body parts!) I've been larger than a DDD since a few years after high school. I've lived with an extra 15+ lbs on my upper chest which has been giving me back aches since forever! It's hard for me to find clothing that fits and doesn't accentuate my bosom. It's awkward whenever I do anything physical (dancing, ice skating, jogging, etc.). I've wanted to get this procedure done for the past deca
  24. Sure am, blank! It's usually the highlight of my week! I'm going to take a break for the next session, but plan to pick it up again over the summer. Here's a video from this past Tuesday's class. I've been working on going into a spin with a one-foot entry. I finally got the hang of it!
  25. I liked Do The Right Thing. I agree it was hard to watch. And the fact it's hard for us to watch should shout volumes of people who actually live their lives in such a way. The racism that's still so rampant today is horrible. You did a great job writing on it, @JamesBrown! I plan on watching Parasite by the Korean director Bong Joon-ho. But I'll have to go fast to fit it in the next week! I've seen several of his other movies, like The Host, Mother, and Snowpiercer. All of them have dealt with class, and privilege, and how screwed up situations can be. They've all been ver
