Glad the weather is nice for you!

It's been raining a little to a lot every day here for a while. So My grass is not getting cut. :/

I wish I had time to attend Ren Faires.
(I wish I had MONEY to attend Ren Faires!) :P

As long as the costumers at the Faires are not all 'Captain Jack Sparrows'.
I have a friend to attends (and gets gigs at, when he can) Faires, and they generally gives out pieces of white paper with a big 'Black Spot' on them to anyone who dresses up as Captain Jack.

When they hand the costumer the Black Spot, they inform them it is for 'UNoriginal Costuming and General Douchbaggery'. ;)

Didn't see too many pirate patrons.

But I need to get my costume game on. I drooled over some sets of leather armor.

Beautiful day at the Ren Faire yesterday! Couldn't have asked for better weather.

I need to step up my costume game. Still, my GoT t-shirt got lots of comments.

was it one of mine?

You have a GoT shirt?

I ordered one recently with Tyrion's quote, "That's what I do - I drink and I know things."

we had the old great houses brewing company shirts.


The Old One-Eyed Bastard Day. Two more days to call it a weekend.

How about these Vikings?

Nah, I just really want to see a horde of these freaks descending upon an unsuspecting Renn Faire, while I sit back and watch the culture clash from a safe distance.

Achievement unlocked: I drove a mechanical vehicle today. A mini-tractor.

They are fun.


I learned to drive at the age of 6 on a tractor. I was driving our farm truck by the age of 12. We lived down 3 miles of dirt road from the nearest highway, so the police never patrolled the area. There was a country store (that we owned for a time) at the junction of the road where I grew up and the actual blacktop highway and I was often sent there to pick up groceries.

When my father was about 13, he was often sent to Grafton (30 miles from the farm) to pick up his drunk uncle and bring him home. Of course, that was in 1937. :-)


Grafton, IL?


*yawn* everbody...

Thursday. Will it be as hot and stuffy like yesterday (which it was again after two days of acceptable weather)?


According to weather forecast it can be even worse today...

Argh...


So will be Friday...

Popping in from far Canadia to say good day, eh?

Those of you with access to my FB or IG feeds can see I'm having a great time!

Talk to you soon!

Congratulations!


If my insurance screws up and doesn't pay for my pain meds I'm going on a clocktower shooting rampage. My legs hurt so bad today I'm in tears at times. I have a game this Saturday and they're just going to have to put up with a dirty house because I can't stay on my feet long enough to clean it. I do have to have to walk the dogs from time to time and that is absolutely excruciating.

Complaint over.

Sorry to hear that, Cal. Offers a shoulder bump.


heh...thanks, John.


No problem, Cal. Sorry that it's all I can do.


That's just fine. There's nothing anyone can do besides something like that, unless they can get me to the top of the clocktower... lol.

There's something even better. Threaten to drown your insurance provider in a sea of lawsuits. >:}


There's a thought. They've been pretty good up until now, but with the changes regarding opioids in the FDA I never know from month to month what to expect.


My mother uses Percocets for her hip bursitis. Medicare and PACE ( a PA prescription assistance program ) helps keep the costs reasonable. Then again, her doctor does provide prescription scripts on a monthly basis.


Off to bed after unproductive day.


I have two different insurance providers (Medicare and one through my wife's insurance) so my costs are generally pretty low ($15 copays and under). Percocet is like taking Pez to me; it just doesn't work. All I've found that works is Norco (Hydrocodone 10/Acetaminophen 325). I've been on it for years. I'm far from being an addict to it; it doesn't even give me a buzz anymore but it at least helps with the pain.

I may not be far behind ya on that.

I once read ( in a Scientific American magazine, maybe ) that if you take painkillers for severe pain, you don't become addicted.


Began watching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, again.


Library's closing soon. Good night, everyone.


Just got back from the pharmacy. Insurance still approved the copay and in about 30 minutes I should feel better. I sure hope so at least. But Resident Trump just declared opioids a national crisis so who knows what's going to happen next.


But I bet that he's never suffered debilitating pain, either.


True.

T-Mobile sucks.

Checking in from traffic court. I sure do know how to party on a Friday!

Silver Crusade

With that...

Morning, all. What did I miss?

Silver Crusade

This is such a chill little traffic court. Every one I've ever been to before is big and crowded and miserable. This one is quaint and there are like 15 people here.


And probably one of interns at my work got fired, one got the final warning, and two I have no idea if they still work or got fired...

Is that hard to understand "no frickin' drinking at work!"? Is it?
Especially after being called on it before?

It's not like our supervisor was hard and demanding to excuse being a dick to him and trying to abuse his leniency...

Ah Friday,

Tried posting here yesterday, but the site seemed to go down for a bit? :/

-Have Fun Monkey-Man!
(I wanna vacation. I'm not jealous. Nopenotevenalittlebit) ;P

-Sorry for your prescription problems Cal. Good luck with all that! :)
BTW, I dislike Hydrocodone very much. When I took it after my surgery, I got myself OFF that stuff and onto regular Tylenol/Ibuprofen asap. Just do not like the way it makes my brain not work. :P

(Regarding insurance, after 'Obamacare' was passed, my insurance went from 'Pretty good' [No deductible, reasonable copays] to 'Pretty BAD' [More expensive copays and huge deductible] The surgery that cost me maybe $500 out of pocket could easily cost me 3-5 GRAND now!) :(

-Congrats Mark Thomas 66! And it looks like something I may actually be interested in getting! :) (ALWAYS looking for affordable magic items!) ;)

And that is all, Aged wizard needs to get back to work!
Have a great weekend all!


Could somebody be so kind and kill me, preferably with cone of cold or polar ray, please? kthx!

I prepared Fireball and Scorching Ray today. Do those help?


Thanks, everyone. My copay was actually approved 2 days before the meds were actually due, so I was able to get them without having to put up with 2 more days of pain.

And speaking of traffic court, I had to take a defensive driving course to avoid paying a speeding ticket once (the only one I've ever had). The officers in charge made us watch some gory videos then gave us the answers to the quiz so they could leave early and play golf.. lol

My pain is so intense that only high end painkillers work. Fortunately I've been on them long enough that I don't get the fun buzz anymore, but it does affect my thinking process a bit, which in turn affects my performance as a GM sometimes. But I can't deal with the pain without them, so it's an unpleasant trade off.

Wha? Why are you in traffic court?

They will probably make you exit through the Gifte Shoppe.

I have doubt that I'd notice difference from standing in shadow today.
