My name is Marina! 🐌 I’m a SFW furry artist and fantasy writer. I'm an immigrant, living in the USA since December 12, 2001. I became a proud American citizen on May 21st, 2021. I’m in my late 30s and married to a wonderful nerdy guy. You’re welcome to refer to me as she/her.
I’m what you could describe as peculiar. I talk peculiar, dress peculiar, and have peculiar interests, to put it all mildly. I can be dressed like a five year old, drinking alcohol from a literal sippy cup, while discussing theology or George Orwell with you. Being this way has sometimes made it hard to find people I vibe with (I'm kind of out of place no matter where I go) but it has also led me down some interesting paths in life. I wouldn't rather be anyone other than myself. 🥰
I'm the author of Meganeea and The Tale of Horus 📚 🐿️ I like saying that, but no one knows my books, since I'm still working on them.

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday! I’m still enjoying spending time with my mom. I’m not feeling so great physically though, enough that I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow. So commissions that are just hitting their due date might see a small delay. Please bear with me. 🙇♀️
I’ve actually been under the weather since the weekend (again, physical symptoms) which led to canceling plans with a friend too. But I’ve continued working and have just been doing my best not to fall behind too much.
This morning we had breakfast and watched a few YouTube videos together. I introduced Beanie to mate:
Sweeney cuddled up to me during this time. I didn’t really bother or touch him and he stayed quite a while:
I played Giraffe and Anikka for a little while and drew a lot. My mom made a weird but good salad in the afternoon. It had cheese, olives, rice, tuna. It was bizarre but delicious.
Now I’m just relaxing and working on more commissions before it’s time to head home. I’ll post the daily warm-up in the evening, so look forward to that.
Finally, my fitness logs have resumed. Hopefully I can get back to getting in shape! I don’t seem to have lost much progress, just stagnated a tad.
I’m a bit under the weather from what (I hope) is a minor health problem that I don’t want to go into detail about. I had meds for it but they don’t seem to have worked, so I expect to make a doctor’s appointment for next week. I’m giving it another day or so. I had plans to see a friend yesterday but this issue had me too uncomfy so I stayed home and the result was that I finally caught up on all that I had to do. So I went to bed in quite a good mood.
Over the weekend we got rid of/sold of/donated many more things. This little bed, originally my teddy bear Franklin’s bed, is something I deeply treasure but could not find a place for… the house is too full, it will never be bigger and we will never live in a larger one. It was always in storage. So I thought I would have to donate it, because we need the storage space.
I set it aside, and immediately Kotoko and Rosemary took to it. Then I just could not resist. I put a blanket on it, and now it’s a favorite hang-out spot. The mouse next to the bed is Kotoko’s favorite, she likes to lay it at the foot of the bed before sleeping. And as you can see Rosie loves it too:
Yesterday I streamed. Kotoko kept me company the entire day, appearing on her KokoCam. 😊
In other dumb kitty things, here is Rosie playing with a blade of grass in our living room floor:
That’s kind of it for this post but there will be more later today. I have to work on art for a little while.
