Ooo, I have to remember to try and get my wife and I tickets for "Come from away". It is a musical that is coming to New Orleans on our anniversary.

Happy weekend all!

If it were not for peeing in the middle of the night I would not get any exercise at all.

Do you know the difference between exorcize and exercise? It brings new meaning to the question. "What did you do last night?"

Another incredible piece of imagination!

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was really just meh. Which does remind me of something kinda funny. My vehicle has not run for a whole year now and someone wrote "meh" in the dust on the back window. Sometime in the last couple of nights, a neighborhood cat has steadied itself on the back window before jumping down to the ground. Its pawprints bracketed the word like little feline quotation marks.

It's a sinister code, no doubt. Barktholomew, get on the Netwoof and research this immediately!

We're supposed to resume our sessions on April 13th and after a month off I feel a bit recharged and ready to go. I and one of my players worked on the house rule handbook for our side campaign, which we hope will become the primary one when the current one is finished, so that's ready to go. He works for Troll Lord Games and will print them off for us. Pretty excited about that.

Right now we have the Revolution Calling Campaign in which the PCs have become high-level revolutionaries working with the messiah-like leader of an army made up mostly of peasants and mercenaries. I've lost total interest in this game simply because I'm not having fun with it. I'll keep running it for the group if they want to go all the way to 20th level but maybe they'll catch on that I'd rather run the side game.

They enjoyed the intro game to the side campaign, called Fortune and Glory, so that made me pretty happy. This one won't have any world changing, epic or mythic storylines or political intrigue-laden and Byzantine courtly maneuvering. This one is set to be an old fashioned "let's see what's over the next hill" and "what's behind that door?" sort of thing, just like we did a long time ago.

The other campaign and the one prior to it were ideas suggested by players. The one before Revolution Calling was fun because that was the first PF game we managed to take to level 20. But Fortune and Glory is my baby. I'm ALWAYS open to suggestions from players on how to make things more fun for the group but at its heart this baby is mine. I haven't been this excited to start a campaign in a long time and I have literally hundreds of idea notions jotted down here and there. Now to just make them drop the Revolution Calling thing...

Happy Monday?

(Isn't that an Oxymoron? Like 'Jumbo Shrimp'?)
;P


LOL... sorta, yeah!

However, my Monday fit right in the middle of a stereotypical Monday.


My Monday fits into the "I start the week with one week of Mom in recovery down, seven more to go."


How is her recovery coming along?


Well she's still not allowed to lift stuff. But she does have her arm out of the sling for a couple times a day (for as long as she can). She's also no longer on any opioids. So that's good too.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That is good! I had to go back on the opioids because nothing else could ease my chronic pain. I'm lucky in that I've never felt anywhere near addicted to them and have been closely monitored by myself, my family and friends, and my doctors where they are concerned.


Yeah I was concerned when the doctor gave her Oxycontin, but she went off that stuff with out too much trouble.


Some people can quit taking it pretty smoothly. I can and it sounds like she was able to, as well. Good on her!

The only drug I ever had withdrawal from was Talwin, a really high powered but older pain killer. That was an awful weekend. My son was 12 at the time and if he hadn't been there I don't know that I could have made it.

New quote from the students: "Jazz magicians."

For some of them "magician" is the only appropriate term.

To make it extra Abbot-and-Costello confusing, I'm naming him "Thelonius Monk".

His first hit to drop would simply be called "Felonious M".

We now have two male dogs and two female cats.

The fear in the eyes of the boys is palpable.

The bad news is now she has tasted Opioids. Tom, she has a weakness to them now. She will need to be watched from now on.

I know because I have the taste for them. In 1997 I had stomach surgery. They gave me Morphine and put me on a Morphine pump machine with a trigger that released a dose every 15 minutes. I wore the trigger out on that pump the first 4 days by the 8th day I ask them to take it away.
With my Father being in such pain, they put him on Morphine. So it was in the house, it called out to me. I resisted it, but there for the grace of God.
The good news is got off the stuff early. Just watch and be careful about how she might be tempted.

That is far better than it has any right to be.


Howdy, Housemates! How has your Tuesday treated you so far?


I've been lied to. I thought I would receive a pile of rubies on Tuesdays.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Maybe the delivery is just running late. You still have until 8 pm for deliveries made today by most parcel companies. Of course, if they don't show up it's goodbye ruby Tuesday.

Well, would she ever say where she came from?

Nope. Rejection.

I guess she just can't be chained to a life where nothing's gained or nothing's lost...

It's a beautiful day. The flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, the birds are...birdsing. And the wasps are swarming, looking for new places to build their hate-filled strongholds of pain. Good thing I don't like to be outside.

Have you been taking your love to town again?

Ohhh, Van, you have.


Hi, everyone. Well, this sucks. It looks like I'll be pulling another double shift tomorrow. The morning guard will have to attend his actual trial in Traffic Court, and I don't think that there's a replacement for the guard that lost his car. Thing is, when I'm here in the morning, I have to wake up at two. And, when I leave here, I get home at one. So, that means that there's no point in going home for just an hour. So, I have to stay here, overnight, trying to get some sleep in this office chair. And trying hard to avoid saying all the foul words I know in a constant stream. Lucky me.


Sorry you're in such a tight bind, John.

My Tuesday consists mostly of me doing dog wrangling. (IE my dogs from barking at the neighbor's across the street's dogs.)

That and grocery shopping.


Sorry to hear that, John. One of the guys I sometimes game with is a security guard and he tells similar tales.


Thanks, Cal. It then seems that my general complaint of being overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated is universal.


Yeah. It strikes us all.

Oi Vay! Today!

I swear I thought this was the longest week ever.
THEN, I realized it was TUESDAY!

And now you've scared me. I read that and thought it still was Tuesday for a second.


It is, in Australia (possibly?)

50 points to Qybble. That one made me laugh more than it should have.

We are all just time-travelers, living in this very moment and all too soon to be born into the next moment and the present has now passed into the past. We can only remember the past, we can only plan for the future, the only moment that matters is this one, what are you going to do.
