Day 22: Say Gnomes! #domagick

Now that I’ve likened a shower with poor water pressure to a circle of gnomes pissing on someone’s head, I can’t stop thinking, “Say gnomes! Say gnomes!”

Today was a productive, but boring day. When I got home I was so friggin’ tired that I again fell asleep watching the news, only to wake up three hours later and think, fuck – I have shit to do! So I got up and did my chakra balancing meditation before feeding the cats, doing some chores, and ordering my groceries.

I did do my Bathin invocation this morning and I did carry his sigil, but all his energy seemed to do for me today was burn me out. Ah well. It took a few days to adjust to Ashtaroth, too.  I’m hoping it’s just an adjustment thing and that he is the right Daemon for the job. I mean, preliminary divination said I was good to go, but there’s always that worry that the perameters have changed on some level.  I need to give it at least a few days before worrying.

That said – I’m pretty sure that no writing is happening tonight. I will start fresh tomorrow. I only have two errands to run – grocery pickup, and the bank. Thirty to forty minutes tops depending on traffic. I have quite a few things I need to finish up tomorrow in prep for NovelRama, which starts Friday.

Today I pulled two cards and got both King of Swords and King of Wands – in this instance I am pretty sure neither is talking about people since my career is pretty much solitary and well suited to an INTJ. Unless it’s suggesting I’m seeking advice from more experienced men in my field, I am pretty sure the cards are trying to tell me to take charge and lead myself to my own success. Keep emotion out of it. Maybe a bit too much of an “on the nose” interpretation, but I do feel I have been dropping the ball with regard to discipline – especially on days where I work the day job. When I get home from the day job I’m so mentally fried I just want to sleep – literally. But I need that extra time for writing.

Is it bad that I can’t wait for #domagick to be over? I think I mentioned before that it’s the blog posts that are killing me.  The time I usually would spend writing on day job days (especially) have been spent blogging.  No offense. I don’t mind doing this for thirty days for my own edification, and for the edification of others.  But I couldn’t do it all the time. Oh hell no. LOL

Other thoughts racing through my head — I might be feeling brave enough to tackle some preliminary Sorath work as early as the 31st.

On that note – I’m going to close it here. If anything happens with Bathin, you’ll all be the first to know. I might sooth my worry with a divination session with Bathin in the morning.
