See, I had something that we'll self-diagnose as walking pneumonia for a couple weeks. And I'm still recovering. And also I just cannot shake the deep depression I've been under for awhile. My words are all locked up tightly. I have found I can paint, though, so I've been doing that instead of saying things.
So here's just some stuff and so forth, for now.
I'm getting a new kind of spam, it seems. I don't know what I could have signed up for to elicit this:
I don't entirely understand the subject of the first one.
Subject: Can it really be true that serenades beneath a window are left flower in past ages?

are wonderful and not childish at all!I am a cheerful, nice, sociable,
easy-going woman.I know that I can make happe any man. I have a
perfect looks and brains to that end.
Subject: Fancy a long walk in the countryside?

I've always been a bit of a homebody. I value friends and family above
everything. I have a tendency for being a bit shy but I am looking to
break out of that. Sometimes you look around and realize just how much
you're missing out on. I don't want to miss out anymore. Some things
that won't change are my belief in communication, integrity and
helping others any chance I get. I guess I am looking for someone that
believes in the same things. That can also teach me more about the
world and introduce me to new experiences. If this sounds like you,
why don't you write me?
The second one seems to have been written by an American, but the first one seems very ESL, right? And there aren't any links in the emails; they seem to expect a reply, perhaps? I dunno. Weird, low-key spam.
I looked up celebrities who are the same age as me. Here's a list I put together:
Alan Cumming was born on 1/27/1965

I can't say that I find any particular meaning in this, but it interests me, a little. I think quite a few of them look older than me. That's gratifying.
Here's a snapshot of my latest finished painting. It's not a proper photo of it, though, so maybe don't judge too much.
