Munky Musings on a Miserable Monday

A Munky on Merseyside

Hey there internet people.

Been a while, have felt the need to withdraw from blogging for a week or two, to clarify what I want this blog to be and what I want to put in it, to be honest I still have little idea, which is why the subtitle of this blog is Random Musings of a Liverpool Loon, random seems to be as good an idea as any.

Life seems no easier than before, but then again, I suppose I do not expect it to be. After a week or more of the great reorganisation regarding my comics and graphic novels, I have started again to enjoy my hobby. Anyone with a collector in their lives know how they can do this grand reorganisation thing, losing themselves in the cataloguing and organising of their treasured items. The argument could be made that I have too many, but comic…

Thinking Thoughts on a Thursday

A Munky on Merseyside

Been a hard week, really hard, too hard it feels at the moment.

Work’s a nightmare, family stuff as always and my wife (The Mighty Rosie)’s health worries and an unpleasant conversation or two in work. It’s easy to look at things and feel bad.

I know this, because that’s how I’ve been this week. I felt the demons that I spent 2016 trying to escape grabbing hold of me again and it was both terrifying and demoralising in equal measure. But I am ok. I’m not great, not good, not well, but ok. Last year, this would have been a backslide, but the way I see it, it’s been one bad week out of 20 or so, that’s not too bad is it?

Last weekend we bought a sofa, brand new and outright, a first for us without going to the cheap end, we are heading towards better things…

Feelings on a Friday 14: I think I am going to be ok, not yet, but it’s coming

A Munky on Merseyside

It’s been a week and a half at work, have spent most of this week stressed and tired, or not sleeping and stressed. I had 12 minutes of lunch on wednesday, which got me into trouble because I ‘Took an hour and a half off on the busiest day’, well the time off was for therapy, so there’s that. I can see the point, I really can, they didn’t know it was only 12 minutes, they assumed it was 42 minutes most likely and felt I was taking the piss, I was angry at the time, but have made the time up from that day and there are more things to give a shit about.

Therapy itself was good, am letting go of some of the unnecessary stuff in my past, other people’s expectation, my own sense of failure and all that. Truth is, you can’t fail at something that…

No spoilers here, just an epilogue.

I’m stopping the DC Rebirth reviews at this point, due to lack of interest, mostly mine. Reading comics should be neither work, nor an encroachment onto other areas of my life and these reviews kind of have both going on.

Also Michael Bailey of Views from the Longbox

has started reviewing this new era of comics and I kinda feel that this is sort of superfluous. Seriously, listen to this podcast, it’s entertaining and the guy likes what he is talking about and that’s worth something in my book.

Ta Ta For Now Internet people.

Munky in the Morning……

A Munky on Merseyside

Hoping a happy and fun filled weekend was had by you all in internet land.

I recorded a promo for my upcoming podcast last night… f**k it was awful, bad sound quality congested voice and all that, but I did it, will probably need a better mic, have one coming on thursday, so will look at that then.

Started looking a new furniture for the living room with my wife (The Mighty Rosie), have completed my application for a provisional driving license, so will be able to post that tonight. Things are moving forward. Have spent a lot of time recently reflecting on stuff, thinking about what I need to do, my failures, my goals and all that, that’s all good stuff, that’s all positive things, but to be honest, I feel like being just a little bit trivial today.

Stuff that made me smile.

Thinking Thoughts on a Thursday: Getting Comfy Talking

Hi everyone

Been a rough couple of weeks here.

Have discovered I am allergic to rabbits or at least the combination of rabbits and sawdust, have had rough couple of weeks in work, though I’ll admit I know others with more on their plate. I am struggling, but that’s ok.

One of the reasons I am ok, is that I now have developed a distinction between the s**t in my head and the s**t that life is throwing at me, to be honest, that’s a lot of it right now, but that’s all the outside stuff. Work will eventually ease off, medical worries will be addressed and I know, not feel, know that the s**t that’s on me will change. It’ll be replaced with more soon enough I am sure, but it won’t always be this. I am stronger, more so than I have been a while, I am forcing…
