Update: My father is still in the rehabilitation center. His walking is coming back, but the thing he’s having the most trouble with is swallowing. The speech pathologist who’s working with him (despite the name, they handle everything with the mouth and throat) said the connection to his swallowing muscles was totally destroyed during the stroke. It’s coming back, but slowly. He’s going to be on a feeding tube for at least another week. We’re probably looking at him coming home around Christmas – knock wood.

I’m thankful for having Tumblr on my phone. It allows me to spend a few moments catching up with fandom stuff every evening when I’m at the hospital, when my father is being tended to by the staff. It’s definitely helping to keep me sane. And I make sure I take a couple of hours on weekends to write something (for the GazettE Kink Meme, usually), and watch My Little Pony.

Also, I’m hoping that the next Alice Nine Channel (this Friday, I think?) brings the Really Big Announcement the fandom has been waiting for. If they put out the new single in February – and that’s how these things usually work (announcement, then the PV premiere the next month, and finally the release of the single) – it will be a whole year since they’ve put out new music. Incredible. (We’ve actually gone a full year with neither GazettE nor Alice Nine putting out a single, though both released albums).

And finally, for the amusement factor of Twilight fans sniping at each other, see the comments of this article. Apparently, there’s something of a war between the camps of EL James and the authors of another Twific-turned-Mommy-Porn novel. One day, publishers will realize there’s more fic out there than het erotica . . . http://shelf-life.ew.com/2012/12/04/check-out-the-cover-for-the-twilight-fanfic-turned-novel-beautiful-bastard-exclusive/

At least there's some good news about your dad, but I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you all anyway. Hopefully he'll be home soon. :)

I was especially amused at this comment: "Show me where this book is like Twilight, apart from it starting out as Twilight fanfiction."

...........I'm not sure if I'm the delusional one here or not.
