Today was a sad day. I found out that a friend of mine who I have neglected recently passed away 2 days ago. I’ve told people before that I totally suck at being a 3D friend, no one believes me. Well anyhow, tomorrow is the funeral, I am going. He was the only friend who came and visited me while I was in the hospital, so being at his funeral is the least I can do. We didn’t talk often, we weren’t buddy buddy, but I feel I need to do this. I don’t like funerals and I know nothing about Jewish funeral services, but hey, first time for everything I guess. The world lost a great guy though.
I actually remembered it was Thursday and attended the Acute Leukemia chat for a bit tonight. This I haven’t done in several weeks. Most of the regulars were there. I just didn’t feel up to chatting much so I made up some lame excuse and left after a half hour or so. I did get a bunch of sympathy from them about my platelets. I’m not sure that is what I need or want. I just want this to be over and get my life back to “normal”.
I also went to Edwina’s Bipolar Chat for a bit tonight, something I haven’t done in several months. That was directly because of my friend’s passing. I needed to make sure they knew, which they did. I should have known they knew, probably one of the first groups of people who were informed. Chat was a big part of his life.
So, I have been fretting over the D&D game and getting our characters into roll20. Well, our DM has decided we aren’t putting our characters into roll20. He “trusts” us. Which is cool. We are starting at level 4, not like we have super-powers or mega-weapons so there isn’t a whole lot we need to inform the DM of. So the game tomorrow night is on. 6:30pm my time, giving me time to have dinner, which is a good thing. Otherwise I wouldn’t eat til like 10pm, which would suck.
I am very much looking forward to this game. I haven’t been a player in a game in a long time (I am not counting the 2 sessions of 3.5 D&D I played right before getting diagnosed with leukemia). It’s been over 25 years since I played any role playing game as a player. And my regular readers will remember that I killed the 2 games I was running as a DM very recently. I’m ready to be a player. I’m sure I can be a great player. Oh yeah, I forgot the 3 sessions I played (as a player) with Jon. So, I have been a player in recent history, but for only 3 sessions, does that really count? Anyhow, I am ready to play in a big campaign with lots of things going on and that is what I have been promised.
I am still dealing with depression. I still can’t bring myself to play any computer games or really read anything. So I sit around all day on Facebook and entering Publishers Clearing House contests. I lead a boring life.
I realized today that I have been over a year doing absolutely nothing of value. I am a bum. I want to change that. At least start doing more things around the house. Don’t know if I am ready for laundry, but dishes perhaps, and picking up after myself. Yeah, I should be able to do that. All this idea, requires me being healthy enough to do it. So, my wanting change won’t come about for a while I guess. But dammit, I am gonna try eventually.
Found out today that the hospital wants me there at 7am on Monday and not 7:30. It’s a 40-45 minute drive to the hospital. UGH, gonna be waking up way early on a Monday. It could be worse, I could have had to be there at 5am for the 6:30am biopsy. But it’s all good, I will be there on time and go thru the hoops that they make me go thru and be to the radiology department on time.
I think this biopsy is #8 or #9. I got a lot of holes in my hip bone. It’s all good, I don’t think there is a limited number of holes you can have in your hip, well I am sure there is a limit, but I think its a huge number being as it’s a big bone.
Sorry, this isn’t a video. It is just the song I wanted to post the other day. The video is too weird for words, so just kick back for 5ish minutes and listen to Dutch Singer Do (yeah, DOH) sing to DJ Sammy’s music.
Here, a list I pretty much agree with. I like WatchMojo, their lists are interesting if nothing else.
