A little of everything again

We watched Venom this evening, it was a highly entertaining movie.  The only complaint I have is the little blurb at the end, you know during the credits, they introduced Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady and he mentions Carnage.  That sucks, I don’t like Woody Harrelson as an actor and Carnage is one of my favorite Marvel Villains.  Not a good match in my opinion.  Perhaps when the sequel to Venom is made they will recast it.  A boy can hope, right?  Apologies for the quasi-spoiler.  Just upset and needed to vent it somewhere.


I’m toying with the idea of making the Elite Monster Killer Squad an every other week thing.  It took me two weeks to come up with the fighting dragons and the party ate them for breakfast, its gonna take me two weeks to come up with something much stronger.  It’s not that I can’t throw something together at the last moment, it’s that I don’t want to throw something together at the last moment.  I posted about this in the Facebook group and only one person stopped long enough to look at it.  They were all too excited about the loot from the Dragons of which there was plenty.


OK, not toying with the idea after all, made it a statement.  Every other week.  Try to save what’s left of my sanity.


Yesterday was the one month day from my bone marrow biopsy.  The sooner that comes, the sooner I can get my bump chemo and be done with this one way or the other.  Hoping for positive outcome.  Have to have all the chemo done and be released to the world by October 6th.


October 6th is the day we fly to Iceland and then Edinburgh.  Jim and I are going to have a blast.  Even if it’s technically a last hurrah for me.   I love spending time with my brother and getting to go to the old time Campbell stomping grounds is going to be way cool.  I need to contact Con (that’s our travel agents name) and make sure we are going to get to go to old time Campbell stomping grounds.  Would suck to make it all the way to Scotland and not see anything Campbell.  But as I pointed out to my brother, we will have a car and a destination of where we sleep, but where we go in between is fair game.


The only thing that will keep me from going to Scotland is if I actively have cancer again.  Meaning that this biopsy comes back bad and the bump chemo doesn’t work, and my MDS turned into AML Mach 2.  I wouldn’t do that to my brother.  Which reminds me, I need to get trip insurance.  Anyhow, I don’t want to die in Scotland.  I don’t want to die anywhere right now, but specifically I don’t want to die in Scotland with only my brother.


Hopefully, Doctor Alkhateeb has another trick up his sleeve to fix my fatigue issue.  The steroid he gave me before isn’t doing the trick anymore.  I know the first two years after transplant you are supposed to be fatigued, but it’s ridiculous how fatigued I am compared to where I was two months ago.  I am going backwards on this.  Not right.


I took a break from reading the Keeper’s Manual for Call of Cthulhu today.  I read the CoC quick start instead.  Yeah, with that read I could in theory run a Call of Cthulhu game now.  But I am gonna finish the big book and the smaller Investigator’s Book.  And be a fully qualified Keeper.  Or at least be able to fake it good enough.  More reading tomorrow.
