State Of The Trout: “I’m not dead!” edition

Posted in Uncategorized

Hello everybody! I’m not dead! Isn’t that great? I’ve just been super busy getting Second Chance ready for it’s big day. When is that big day? Well, I’ll tell you on Monday, when I reveal the cover and release date right here on this very blog.

Because of this, my serialized projects are back-burnered until June. If you’re a Patreon supporter, you should have gotten a message about that, and Wattpad followers of The Afflicted should also have gotten one, so this probably doesn’t come as a shock to any of you. But I’m covering my bases.

In personal news, I’m so happy to announce that D-Rock’s dog, Muggsy, who lived with us for about a year while D-Rock also lived here, has come to stay permanently. You may remember my cousin D-Rock from our brief YouTube show, Roadhouse. Nowadays she’s living in the Aleutian Islands, working as a hyperbaric welder and a boat nanny in Dutch Harbor. She recently made a very surprise visit to us. By very surprise, I mean that she didn’t call me before traveling all the way here. I was in bed and my bedroom door burst open with a shout of “Melissa!” to herald her arrival.

Anyway, Muggsy (a.k.a. Muggs, Mugzilla, Mugzoo, Tubbsy, and Tubszilla) the senior Pit Bull is our newest family member, and she looks pretty psyched to be here. I think she missed us:

A very smiley Pit Bull, being hugged by my equally smiley seven year old.
Also pictured: my genetic clone.

So, hence the lack of updates: I’ve been busy writing, editing, and snuggling this cute ass dog.

Next week, I’ll return with an Apolonia recap.

    Congratulations on your newest family member! She’s a beauty. Also, say hi to D-Rock for me. I MISS her so much! (I miss Roadhouse.)

    OH my god, that dog’s cute little smiley pitbull FACE! Please post all the smiley pitbull pictures. We lost our dog Cheech in October and the way he’d grin at me when I was having a bad day, or when he’d done something particularly saucy, or when I scratched behind his ears juuuust right is one of the things I miss most about him.

    Looks like Muggs got a chance to read the Apolonia recap before we did. . . .

      She was! Welding/diving are all certificate-style programs, rather than a four year college. She graduated here, then went to another school in Washington. She’s all graduated up now!
