NobodysHome I am not—my left thumb accidentally touched lasagna when I was pulling it out of the oven earlier today, and then it (the thumb, not lasagna) itched for the next two or three hours...

I might be Freehold's adopted brother, though, because when I went to get some groceries in the evening (with the still itching left thumb), it started to snow.

Random question: does anyone here have recommendations on advice about cbd edibles or oils for chronic pain management?
My arthritis pain in my spine has been really bad lately.

The stronger the better.

It doesn't really matter if it's edibles or oil, they also have a rub on that kind of looks like deodorant.

In this country, today is (and always has been) Mutton, Paint and Compost Day, one of my favourite holidays.

* You can paint the mutton
* You can mutton the compost

What does that mean?:

What do YOU think it means?

* You can compost the paint.

But what can you not do on Mutton, Paint and Compost Day?

Well, friends, you cannot fail to be delighted.

Edibles could NOT hide the taste for me. To the point that all i could taste for a WEEK was the pot, off of one candy. But I'm one of those people that can't enjoy wine because "mmm.. tannins. tastes like someone left a juice box in the car"

They have actual pills. Those didn't have any taste and worked.. as much as pot can work I think

Seriously, though. I'm not a weed guy, but my uncle (70 years old and has a degenerative spinal condition) swears by edibles (generally in brownie/fudge form--he says that the chocolate hides the taste). Maybe give that a try?


I also recommend the chocolate, though I have not had it as I don't like straight up chocolate but I've heard good things about it.

Already down into the 20s-30s high temps for the season here.

I almost shut it down when it started freezing rain but it didn't last long so I took an extended lunch and went back to work.

Today, both my brother and my dad asked me to email them some things. So I sent the stuff Dad asked for to my brother, asking him to send it to Dad. And I sent the stuff my brother asked for to my Dad, asking him to send it to my brother. Now I sit back and wait to see what happens.


Blaaaargh.

Serious headache of kind I hadn't had in a long time.

That was unpleasantly prophetic. Will see if it helps, though.


Hopefully!


Still alive. And better. The headache is gone lingering weakened but again, I am getting um at 4 pm instead of planned noon.

I should get some groceries.


Back with the groceries.

It's 3 C (37 F for you Murikans) and I am so overheated...


Awwww.

This month's Humble Choice has two fine games—Wasteland 3 and Greedfall. But I have both of them already. I have doubts if if the other six games are really worth $12 (especially that the best looking one seems to be a co-op)...

If I pause for a month, the accumulating Humble Bundle discount will reset...

Whelp folks. It finally happened, Dwarf Fortress 1.0 is finally here and gods-be-blessed the brothers knocked it out of the park. It's everything I had hoped it to be and beyond that even more.

They didn't overdo the sprites, they didn't OVERLY simplify things, they found a good balance of hardcore fan service to the 0.X.X players and made the whole thing just downright playable (that is, for the insanely deep sim that it really is). The sprite work is genuinely charming and the soundtrack is downright awesome too. I... I just can't believe it, really, I never thought this day would actually come and it would end up as a futile effort ending as vaporware but NOPE, it's real.

I think I'm going to end up getting lost in the mines for a while.


I ended up working through an unexpected snow storm.

I have no cell phone reception where I'm working so I have no way of checking the weather radar. Before I left this morning they said it was supposed to be mostly cloudy and that was it. I decided to pack up and head back to the shop and then when I was putting my tools away it stopped snowing. But by this time it was already established I was done for the day.

Only one more day left though and then I'll either head to a different place and start another patio (the pavers are already there and the base rock is in so I just have to screed out my rock chips (what we use instead of a sand layer) and I can lay pavers). Or I'll start the garden show exhibit construction.

Is that like Fortnite or Minecraft?

I am not sure how much sarcasm there is in the question but I'm patient and passionate about DF:

It's like the hyper-savant genius great-granddaddy of Minecraft, in fact, Notch even noted that DF was the primary inspiration for MC. Up until today the game relied on ASCII art and keyboard shortcuts like the ancient RPG and MUD games of yore pre-Win 95.

It spawned basically every survival sim game created since around 2004 and has the kind of granular depth that has continued to be evolved over the last 16 years and has yet to come close to being matched by basically any other game or storytelling generative system.


Oh! I know what you're talking about now. For some reason I thought it was something else.

I was just making a joke about describing games to the kids today, and if you describe any game as "Like Minecraft, except for..." Or "Like Fortnite, except..." And they'll understand completely what you're talking about.

Wow, these times are off.


I finished my project yesterday, just got to clean up the site for the winter this morning and I'm done with it until spring (can't apply poly sand when it's this cold).

I'm quite excited to get it done as I have no cell phone or internet reception out there and no one to talk to (I've been there for a month and not a single person has said a word to me) so it's a bit like being sensory deprived.


Also, we're supposed to get a snow storm tonight so the timing is perfect.

Going outside without underwear or socks is not advisable this time of year.

Socks are a necessity.

That fits the first line of the tune 'Hall of the Mountain King' perfectly, just so you know.

The difference between me and former coworker.

Former Coworker: Tyler said I might have to go it alone this snow run, I told him to give me one of the mowers, I'd rather have one of them then go it alone.

Me: I told Tyler I'd rather go it alone then take one of the mowers with me.

You're assuming he didn't shower in his underwear and socks.

Have you gone outside in the winter wearing wet clothes. I stand by what I said.

We were playing hockey on the creek. It was. mostly frozen. Someone lost the puck, I had to go get it. I get the puck and hear CRACK. I look back and I'm now floating downstream on my own private iceberg. I broadjump a lot further than i thought i could, land on the very edge of the ice

"Whoo HOOO!!! I made it!"

Crack. Again. Dumped me right into the creek up to my waist where i stopped myself clinging to the side. (The DM obviously hated my nat 20 on the jump roll)

I rolled my pants up, because no clothes are better than wet clothes. But still by the time we got back home the guys are taking turns hitting my new "ice armor" with the hockey sticks. tinktinktinktink

Yeah I cut pavers with a wet saw so this time of year by the time I'm done for the day my pants are pretty much frozen solid from the knees down (I wear a layer underneath).

I tripped over the hose for the pool vacuum and fell into the deep end when it was 38 degrees out. That was not fun. I'm normally an excellent swimmer (used to swim a mile a day after school my senior year) but in that moment, I forgot everything I knew.
