I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

The end of April (in pictures)

Almost at the Camp NaNoWriMo finish line.

I received a couple of pics recently. My nephew likes his Christmas gift. :-)

My big brother (not pictured) turned 44, and my little bro (pictured) turned the big 3-0 this week. I used to change that boy's diapers, and now he has his own adorable family. Hard to believe we've gotten so old. We are a lot alike in spite of not growing up in the same household. I hope to make a road trip to visit the fam in August.

I've been so ill, but one of my favorite voice actors was in town holding a panel at an anime festival, so I went to meet her. I couldn't take a photo with her because they were $40 (!), but I'm glad I went. Fun fact: I've had an interest in radio and voice acting since childhood. My parents were both animated people when they wanted to be, especially my mom whose voice impressions were pretty hilarious. I guess I got it from her. Just one of my many (MANY! Dear God, there are SO MANY) quirks. :-) At any rate, I surprised myself by being brave enough to do my "Team Rocket Jessie" voice in front of the actor, and she said "oh that was really good...no really, that was very good". So that was fun. I didn't stay long. I was in a lot of pain, so I bought a couple of bookmarks from a local artist and went back home to bed.

Last, but definitely not least, I received this gift from my dear friend Alice in England. I always joke about having "resting Grumpy Cat face", so it honestly couldn't be more perfect. (Disclaimer: I don't dislike people. Really I don't. Mornings, however, are another story. LOL)

I'll stop there for now, but a health update is coming soon. Thanks always for being here.
