...forgive me, I have LONG wanted to title one of these journals that :D Anyways, it's been quite a while since I posted a journal up on here...I haven't had a lot to say lately, really! Anyways, I have a couple of things I would like to talk about...

Lately, things have not been going well for our American Bulldog. He has had hip issues for much of his short life, and we've been giving him glucosamine to help him deal with it. Lately, though, things have started getting worse for him. Yesterday, when I went to let him outside, he was crying and yelping in pain when he tried to get up. He can walk on it after he's stood up for a while, but whenever he gets up after lying down for a while, he yelps and squeals. It's clear that his hip is starting to bother him more and more with the passage of time. We took him to the vet yesterday and they gave him some more medicine, but it's becoming clear that in the future, we're going to have to have his hip operated on. The only problem with that is our local vet does not specialize in that area, so we are starting to search around for other vets in the nearby area who would be able to perform surgery on him...Also, no doubt such surgery will be fairly expensive. But we want our dog to feel better!

Also, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately...I realize that one of the biggest turn-offs about my stories is the incredible length of my chapter. I'm well aware that very few people are going to have the patience to actually sit through chapters of 10,000 or more words! :D While I'm not planning on cutting down the length of my regular stories, I have really started to think about writing something shorter and more manageable. So I racked my brain, and now that I think about it...I would like to write a bunch of short (as in, under 5,000 words) little segments based on my own major Raccoons stories capturing certain little moments in our furry heroes' lives. Most of them will probably star Ralph and Melissa (of course), but many other characters will get focused on in various segments, such as Bert and Maxie, Ralph and Melissa's son Michael, and perhaps even characters I've barely focused on-Cedric and Sophia for example. Some of them may be cute and/or heartwarming, some might be funny or whimsical, and some could be depressing. They won't have much in the way of plot, but they should make for a nice refreshing change from my lengthy rambling tales! :D It'll also be a nice way for me to use various little odds and ends that don't make my main stories...No clue how many segments I may end up writing, but I'll write 'em whenever I feel like it (you can probably expect a few of them every year). Look for the first of these really soon! :)

A few little random factoids about me:
Birthday: April 1, 1992 (I really AM an April Fool's Day joke!)
Birthplace: Oakland Naval Hospital, Oakland, CA (I just looked it up and it no longer exists. Huh.)
Hometown: Visalia, CA
Current residence: Somewhereland, SC (will not reveal real town name)
Where would I ideally like to live: Somewhere in Virginia (I've been through there before. Some really beautiful country there! What can I say, I'm a fool for the country (sorry Foghat))

I am a mysterious enigma of the Internet...

I am a strange human being indeed. My three main interests are cartoons, classic rock, and motorsports. I told you I was weird.

I'm a semi-accomplished writer. Still trying to work on getting better...

Just one note: Although I appreciate positive feedback on my stories, please, do not request me to write anything for you. Due to my past experience with requests, I do NOT accept them under any circumstances. I MAY take ideas and suggestions to be used WITHIN stories, but if you request me to write a specific story for you, I will say no, no matter how nicely you ask me to do it for you. Really, I feel more comfortable writing what I want to write over what other people might want me to write. I am also willing to accept constructive criticism of my stories, but any and all flames of my stories will be removed. I really do not wish to read those.

Also I'm named after...Bryan Adams. I feel ashamed...

"Well, that's what we tell ourselves, isn't it, Boomhauer?"

But yeah, Boomhauer can be rather intelligent and deep if you can actually understand what he's saying :D I remember this little speech of his from that two-parter where the Mega-Lo Mart blew up, pretty creative and funny to see someone turned it into its' own song! Hell, I didn't even mind the fact that it's auto-tuned (I usually HATE auto-tune)!
