Hey, Cal! Perhaps a Halo Music Video will help cheer you up?

Nothing to do
Nowhere to go
I wanna be sedated

It's a Ramones kinda day!


Still on a short hiatus from the toils of GMing but have used a lot of time to finish up the house rule handbook for the next campaign I plan to run. One of my players works at Troll Lord Games in their print shop and he's going to print and bind them for us. Can hardly wait for the current campaign to end so we can start the next one.

Sounds fun!

Both working for a game company, AND the next campaign!

It is. I am not enjoying the current campaign anymore but the players really want to keep it going. That's why I've been working on the next one so we can play it occasionally until we can jump in and hit the ground running.

Wirepede. A new animate!


Oooo! Nice, Drejk!

Wow, cool and creepy.

And yet so useful for those looking for a supply of ready-to-enchant materials!
;P

Where do you come up with these things? Very good,

Got a brand new bed today! It ate up all my savings but I really needed it. The old one was nearly 20 years old. It had definitely seen better days!

Mine is even older (a metal frame from a double bunk bed). I have exchanged a mattress a few years ago but I should get a new, better bed for my poor old backbone.

Oi vay,
My mattress is 23 years old. (24?)
I for sure need to get a new one.

Yeah,... It's on my list,...
;P

Just turn it over. It'll be good for another 24 years. :-)

The only thing older than our mattress is my alarm clock, which is 34.

Nearing the end of its natural flolloping life, perhaps.

Gotta christen the new bed by breaking a bottle of Janx Spirit on the hull.

Good news! Check out these doors we just installed!


Well, good news and bad news regarding the never ending travails of Cal and his Computers. Got the desktop back up and running today EXCEPT for the add on video card they sent. It's FUBAR, I'm afraid. The tech guy told me to call him at 2:30 my time tomorrow and he'd set aside time just to work on this issue. I tell ya, this Jared guy is alright.

The laptop came home today, too. They replaced the keyboard so let's hope that does the trick. I haven't had much time to work on it to see if that's so yet, though.

All this and a new bed. I think that's enough for one day. I'm wiped out. But just about 36 hours until my knee surgery and I hope hope hope it fixes it.

G'night, ya'll.

GOOD LUCK, CAL!!!


Thanks!! I'm sure it'll be fine. I had the same surgery on the other knee 3 years ago. They put me completely under, it's a 20 minute procedure, and I go home the same day. If it all goes as well as last time I'll be walking the same day. Painfully. But the pain does go away in this case!

Good to hear.


In theater we say "Break a Leg", but that might be as comforting to a non-theater person.
;P

So, GOOD LUCK on the surgery Cal!
:)


Hope it goes well, Cal!

You know, like when you meet a god at a friend's BBQ and you know you know them from somewhere, but you can't remember where, and as the party wears on, you get brave and you call them "Vishnu" only it turns out they're Quetzalcoatl and everyone laughs at you and you drop to your knees and shout:

Forgotten Gods!

Happens to me all. The. Time.

Or possibly Drejk's been playing Grim Dawn and just got the latest DLC.

Thanks for all the well wishes for the surgery, everyone. However...

My surgery was scheduled for tomorrow morning. The orthopedist couldn't operate until they heard from my cardiologist, who didn't get back to them until today. He's refusing my request for surgery until I see him on the 11th, and even if he signs off on me then the earliest I can get in is the 24th. I can't even think rationally I'm so angry.


Words can’t express. Is there anything I can do from way over here to make your life easier at all?

Thanks, but sadly there's probably not. I could give suggestions, but they would get me banned from the forums.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

The first suggestion that came to my mind was "Break a leg. Or two. At least one leg on each doctor." But that probably isn't helpful.

(Are you sure, Self? We should probably break the doctors' legs, just so we can rule it out that we tried it.)

Argh. I'm hoping your computer problems are quickly resolved so you have that positive to help you get through the wait to this belated surgery.

(I'm definitely fed up with all my Mom's doctors down here too. If you hear a story on the news about "Florida Woman" going nuts in a SW FL neurologist's or foot doctor's office, odds are it could be me.)

Oh, it was helpful, just not something I can pull off and get away with.

Did get the desktop up and finally running. It still boots slow for a system with this much RAM and free Hard Drive storage, but at this point I'll take it. The laptop came in yesterday, but I haven't had a lot of time to test it out, what with everything else. Since we're not gaming this weekend I suppose that'll be a good time to do that.

Just lure them up nort, I'll show ya what we do with em, you betcha!

Yust make sure ya bring an auger, it's still colder than a donkey's patoot up here, yah!

I'm on my way with them. Not luring them, but tossed into the back of a cattle hauler.

It's day two of my mom's recovery from clavicle surgery. It's been interesting due to the fact that when you're NOT going on 4 hours sleep and have actually at least 8, you might stress out less. Weird I know.

But it's been a learning experience mostly because with my brother's 5 1/2 month old border collie puppy trying VERY hard to be friends with my grump grump/aggressive German Shepard/Border Collie mix...it might be the reason we keep finding puddles on the floor...We'll see.

Mostly he and my other dog, Rory (who is a] roughly the same size and b] only 4 1/2 months older get along great. In fact so much so, Rory tries VERY hard to keep Galway away from getting too close to Conwy. (yes that's how it's spelled folks)

Wow, Puppy Soap operas!
:)
(Now THAT I might actually watch!) ;P

Argh, Sorry to hear that Cal, It's frustrating I'm sure, Just remember that the positive results will be worth the wait! :)

Speaking of positive notes, just remember that it could always be worse. :)

Example, My dad had diabetes, (And wouldnt take care of himself, bad combination) and was going in for an eye surgery to re-attach his optic nerve. (Again.) And instead they got a panicked call(s) from the cardiologist, (he had gone in for tests to make sure all was well before the surgery)
The panicked message(s) on the answering machine was basically "Hey, our tests indicate that youve had a heart attack! Get over here NOW!"

So he went in, and it turned out he HAD had a heart attack, he just hadnt realized it, and it had been a while prior. Needless to say, his eye surgery was postponed, and a quadruple bypass was scheduled instead.
>_<

All of that, and he STILL wouldn't go into the doctor when the next problem popped up. :(

And yes, I inherited my dad's stubbornness. (And short temper) BUT I manage to reign it in. Most of the times,... ;P

ANYway, (I am TANGENT MAN! I am BACK!) all that just to say good luck, enjoy having your PC's back in the meantime, and I hope that all goes well and you have no more delays getting the relief you need.
:)

And Happy Hump Day to all!


When I had my heart attack last year I was actually in my cardiologist's office having an EKG. The nurse looked at it, panicked, ran to the doctor and came back with a wheelchair. "You're having a heart attack right now!" Talk about a surprise.

But, you know, major points for timing. I mean, you wouldn't want to have a heart attack in the proctologist's office. That would be all kinds of wrong.

"What happened?!"
"I don't know! I just started the exam and he kind of yelped and then keeled over!"
"I *told* you your hands were too cold!"


Oh, if I only had a nickel for every time...

Funny you should mention timing and proctology in the same post. I got a letter from mine saying it was time for another visit. Sigh...I'm collecting specialists now.

I feel like "proctologist's change tray" should be some kind of proverbial thing. But I'm really not sure HOW...
