Level 49 Ninja Batman Viking (interview on The Seated View)

April 16, 2019

It's a little known fact that I am both a Ninja Viking and a Ninja Batman. What most people don't realize is that I am, in fact, a level 49 Ninja Batman Viking. Just ask anyone, and if they look at you're crazy, then just ask me, and I'll tell you. That's one of the best parts of being a level 49 Ninja Batman Viking--you're the only qualified to say whether you are one or not.

Today, Lene Anderson posted an interview with me on her site, The Seated View. I've known Lene for several years--almost as long as I've known Petunia, in fact--well, as long as I've known who or what Petunia the Whimpy is. I met her on a website called HealthCentral.com (specifically the Rheumatoid Arthritis section, which I've linked to). She may not remember this, but I was freaked out and freaking out about my diagnosis, and Lene was one of the first who made me feel like things might not be as grim as they looked (indeed, reading her posts made me feel like I could survive with this demon--she's battled her Personal Monster(tm) for a lot longer than I have, and she has a positive outlook, a no-nonsense approach to her treatment, and the experience to back both of those up.

A while back, Lene reviewed Errant Gods (and she's reading Rooms of Ruin now), and as I mention in the interview, her review touched me and made me extremely proud. I reread her review when I'm suffering a touch of Imposter Syndrome or just feeling low. I had a great time with this interview, and Lene has been more than understanding (I first agreed to do it back before the avascular necrosis reared its ugly head, then forgot in all the mayhem--sorry Lene!). Given who the interview was for, I went into a little more detail on a few topics.
