Power went out tonight, but not for too long. My tablet still functioned so didn't go through technology withdrawal. Put a candle in the bathroom while showering, just in case. Not romantic.

I've advanced to bending the broken finger both passively and actively. It doesn't bend much. It's also started making little clicking sounds sometimes, which makes me nervous. I make what seems like a lot of progress, then a couple of hours later it's all frozen again. Lots of starting over and wrapping it to get the swelling down. Kind of a drag.

On the good side, I tried playing and can make music after a fashion. The flute is open-hole, so I'll probably have to cork that particular key, but the finger works the key fairly successfully. So yay? Then we'll have to see if my embouchure survives the nerve damage inherent in breaking apart a jaw.

So looking forward to 2017!

Finished up all of Sherlock on Netflix. I really enjoyed the modernization. In fact, I like both Sherlock and Elementary in different ways.

Is it OK if I make an undignified squee at the thought of a Mothycaster?

Nope, no GenCon this year. I went once and was disappointed that the games all fill up before the convention starts. Didn't realize as a noob that you had to register for games in advance. So went to GenCon and didn't do any gaming besides Eve (the card game). :/

Got up early today for physical therapy, but the therapist is sick. Just as well, since I smacked the finger hard on the edge of the table yesterday and it's a lovely shade of purple in some spots. Derp.

Now it's off to take care of whiny dogs and get a badly needed haircut.

It's been a year since I've been in a dispensary, but I think Imperial green tea might be more expensive than weed here in Colorado.

Of course, it's much better than weed, so that's fair.

I was looking through documents I edited in the past couple of years and found that several have been published, with my own little name as editor! And one even got a "good editing job" from Endzeitgeist. So weird seeing my name on stuff in a store.

EDIT: Nope, very good, not just good. Squeee!

My poor roommate. She got on a tea binge a few years ago and bought a nice fancy electric kettle, several types of tea brewers/strainers, and tons of canisters of expensive tea. She enjoys and savors them all.

So when I moved in and she went to restock tea, she kept asking what kinds I liked -- monkey-picked oolong, imperial green, earl grey creme, etc. I finally whispered Liptons. Yes, tea bags. So now she's got a pantry shelf full of lovely teas and I have a box of Liptons. Her kettle has several heat settings so each tea brews at the right temperature. I crank it up all the way, drop in my tea bags, and let it steep until coffee-colored. Then I load it with sugar and cream and have it as a meal.

She tries to civilize me, she really does. But at least her fancy teas are safe (except for blackberry mojito).

DONE with editing for now! Woo-hoo! Now just some admin work, contracts, billing, shopping, gas, drive friend to airport, pick up dog to babysit, etc. Lazy Sunday.

EDIT: Oh, need to update pbps too.

Trying a dry run (nyuk) liquid diet today.

Breakfast: blended milk, yogurt, banana, dutch chocolate protein powder. No chunks, easy to make even half asleep, thin enough to get through straws, taking a long time to sip, filling, tasty. Success! Though I did skip the blackstrap molasses, which really should be in today's menu somewhere. Just couldn't handle them first thing in the morning.

I got released from jury duty at last.

(Yay)

Did you get to go home, or did you have to go back to work today?

I walked to the local pizza joint for lunch (caught a ponyta and pidgey and zubat and drowsee on the way) and they forgot my order. When everyone else cleared out and I was sitting alone, foodless, I asked. They apologized and hustled pizza out for me - yum - then 10 minutes later brought out a basket of fried dough! o_O Never had it before. I was full of pizza and took it back to the apartment for everyone.

Yay! Court is interesting. What fascinated me as a juror was the "regulars" - people who go there day after day as if they were watching TV.

You can hear them compare notes in the hallways. "What you gonna see today?" "I'm going to Judge Smith's. There's an assault trial." "I don't like Smith. I'm gonna see whats up in Judge Jones' courtroom today."

Took a real bath tonight - got my left hand completely wet for the first time in almost two months, washed my right arm good and proper, scrubbed my hair with both hands, didn't fumble or drop anything because my left had was bagged. Sat and relaxed and soaked the sore muscles in that hand for a quarter hour... ahhhh...

It was wonderful, glorious, fantastic!

You are handling this much much better than I would be. I'm glad your hand seems to be healing well, and I hope your jaw surgery is a textbook case that is completely complication free. I also hope you have a local fast food place that sells fantastic milkshakes.

Thanks, Amby. Really, what can you do? After the "you're joking" moment, I decided to look up what other victims patients said about recovery and prepare accordingly. Now that I can get the broken finger wet again, I can cook and clean up, so will start stockpiling homemade soups. That and protein shakes with fruit/molasses should keep me nutritized. Ordering a fancy bed bolster thingy so I can sleep sitting up (because of the jaw/face/throat swelling) and one of those pocket organizers so I can have things at hand without fumbling. Got my ebooks, laptop, table, Xbox, and TV all within 10 feet. I will have plenty of entertainment nearby while I sleep, because it sounds like that's what one does for 2 weeks.

It won't work as well as it should if you haven't developed proper fangs to deliver the venom, though...

I'm obviously rife with gila monster DNA.

Wiki wrote:
The Gila monster produces venom in modified salivary glands in its lower jaw, unlike snakes, whose venom is produced in the upper jaw. The Gila monster lacks the musculature to forcibly inject the venom; instead, the venom is propelled from the gland to the tooth by chewing. Capillary action brings the venom out of the tooth and into the victim.

Despite her nausea, Sylvia steps away from Jerry and swiftly assembles a firebomb, angling her throw to hit the abomination and miss the sword-wielding nobleman.

Move to K14
Ranged touch firebomb: 1d20 + 7 - 2 ⇒ (13) + 7 - 2 = 18
Precise bomb: Exclude Jerry and Trina's square from splash.
Fire damage: 2d6 + 4 ⇒ (3, 2) + 4 = 9
Explosive bomb: 10' splash and creatures catch fire on a direct hit, taking 1d6 fire each turn thereafter until extinguished.

Next Fort save: 1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (5) + 5 - 2 = 8

Does anyone else find it sad and kind of ironic that all this is occurring during the centennial of WWI, a time when Great Britain sent the flower of a generation to die in (primarily) France and Belgium and to defeat Germany?

And that the age group that voted to exit would be the children of that generation?

The whole thing seems surreal to me.

Home safe - easy trip back. It was good to see the mountains again. Though I had a great visit with the Momster. PLUS! the centenary celebration of the Somne led us to realize that the centenary of the Third Battle of Ypres is coming up next September. We thought it would be appropriate if we went to Flanders and/or Brechin and/or Edinburgh (we'll see where the Black Watch is having its memorial) to commemorate the loss of Mom's Uncle Jamie at Polygon Wood. So, funds allowing, I might visit the UK for the first time next year! Everyone else has been but me, so this is a big deal. :D

Now I have to go tranquilize the hound. Tonight is Doggy Hell Night.

Humorous aside:

Blood / Sanguine Humor / Air
Blood is Hot and Wet, or Warm and Moist. It is the very essence of vitality and health, nutrition and growth. Blood is perfect nourishment perfectly digested. Its receptacle or home is in the arteries and blood vessels. Blood carries the Vital Force and Innate Heat, which power cellular metabolism. The essence of blood is exchange and contact, as it is the basic nutritional and metabolic currency of the organism. Blood has an Attractive virtue, or force, since all cells, organs and tissues have an absolute need for it, and are therefore attracted to it.

Phlegm / Phlegmatic Humor / Water
The Phlegmatic humor is Cold and Wet. It includes not just phlegm, but all the other clear fluids of the body: mucus, saliva, plasma, lymph, and serous and interstitial fluids. Together, these fluids cool, moisten, nourish, lubricate, protect, and purify the organism. The Plegmatic humor has an Expulsive virtue, or force, which flushes out impurities, transports vital nutrients, and helps eliminate wastes. The home of the Phlegmatic humor is in the veins and lymphatics. The Phlegmatic humor nourishes the body on a deep and fundamental level.

Yellow Bile / Choleric Humor / Fire
The Choleric humor is Hot and Dry. It is produced by the liver and stored in the gall bladder. Bile has a hot, caustic nature and a Digestive virtue, or force, which gives it a strong affinity with the other digestive secretions of the middle GI tract. Fire and bile digest and consume, metabolize and transform. Digestively, bile powers digestion; digests, assimilates and excretes fats and cholesterol; and acts as a natural laxative to stimulate intestinal peristalsis and defecation. It also colors the stool brown. Systemically, Choleric residues in the bloodstream thin the blood, enabling it to penetrate through the finest capillaries; empowers the inflammatory response; and opens up the lungs and respiratory passages as a surfactant.

Black Bile / Melancholic Humor / Earth
Black Bile is Cold and Dry. Healthy black bile is a normal sediment of blood, or the Sanguine humor. Black Bile has a Retentive virtue or force, and a cooling, drying, astringing, precipitating, condensing, coagulating, solidifying effect on metabolism necessary for building the bones, teeth, and all dense, solid structural connective tissues of the body. Digestively, Black Bile awakens the stomach and appetite, solidifies the stool, and enables the digestive organs to hold on to their contents long enough to process them properly. Systemically, Melancholic residues in the bloodstream thicken the blood, enabling it to clot; this is vitally important in wound granulation, scar tissue formation, and all structural repair of the body. Black Bile also governs mineral metabolism and bone formation.

Made it to my mom's after a 14 hour drive. At least the weather was good - much better than last time.

Got here and asked my mom for the WiFi password because I have a new laptop since last year. "I have WiFi? I don't think I have WiFi." She gave me the password last year with no problem.

Fortunately, I remembered it. But she can't let it go. "What do I do with the WiFi? Should I unplug it? If I'm not using it, I don't want to pay for it."
