I’m going to GenCon

OK, this sleep issue is getting ridiculous.  Today I woke up woke up at 4:25am and couldn’t fall back asleep.  I need to go see Chris (my PA) and get some Restoril.  I know I have said it before, but this time I mean it.  I can’t go today, he’s off tomorrow, so it looks like Wednesday before I will get to see him.  I NEED to see him.  Or I need to go back into therapy so I can see my shrink.  I’d rather go see Chris as I do not need therapy, that is what my blog is for.  And I think it is preposterous that I have to be in therapy to see Dr. Fialkov.


207.6 was weigh in.  Still under the 210 mark and still having issues from all the lasagna I ate (cheese and pasta not going thru easily).  I ate a lot of lasagna, it was so good.


I signed up to convert my Amazon account to an Amazon Business account.  Well, first thing I noticed was it isn’t as pretty.  The second thing I noticed is Business accounts DO have cheaper prices on some things.  Since it was a free deal, I am glad I did it.  Not that I have plans on ordering anything else from Amazon for a while, it’s just nice to know I will get the best Amazon prices on the stuff I order.  So it’s all good.


I ordered my badge for GenCon last night.  Yup, I am going to GenCon this year as long as my GvHD from June’s stem cell infusion is under control.  Bruce and Cori’s house is gonna be full, but Bruce says they will find a place for me.  They have a big house, I can sleep on a couch if need be.   The convention exhibition floor is only open from 10am-6pm each day and 10am-4pm on Sunday.  That’s really not much for the 4 greatest days in gaming, but hey, it’s GenCon.  You do what they say to do.  Heh, I’m going to GenCon.


On the way to GenCon and on the way home from GenCon, I will be stopping by and visiting my mom primarily since my brother will be asleep or working.  I figure 2 days on both ends will be nice.  Mom will get to spend my birthday with me, she will be happy to do that as she hasn’t done that is years.  I just don’t feel like driving 6 hours home on my birthday.


Aravas is tomorrow night, the guys are excited.  Combat, that’s what this session is going to be about.  We did the roleplay last week, when we shouldn’t have.  This week, it’s all about killing things.  That’s ok, I prefer the combat over the roleplay anyway, but don’t tell the “kids” from the Neven campaign that.


I still dont know where to go with the Neven crew.  I have a few days to come up with something, and I will.  I could throw combat after combat at Cori and Chris and they’d be fine, with just a little roleplay to break it up.  But the “kids” want 50/50 if I can give it to them.  I will try but going from being an action DM to a roleplay DM is hard.  Heh, I will do it though.  It’s all good.


Sorry about my doom and gloom post about Mayo and stuff yesterday.  I was mentally in a weird place.  Everything I said was true, but I could have said it better.  But as I have pointed out many times in the past, this is my blog, other people read it, but it’s written for me.


More school talk, so no Teresa talk, ok.  I think I might still be in the system at DMACC.  I mean they keep you active for 3 or 4 years from previous enrollment.  Even if you don’t go.  I think I tried to go in 2017, which means I might be in the 3 years.  I really need to call admissions when the open, just to check.  I might not have to go thru all the crap again.  I do, however, have to get another new id cuz Teresa shredded my old one when she said NO MORE trying to go to school.   But that’s just a drive up to Ankeny before 1pm and get my picture taken.  Beyond that, perhaps I can log into the system.  Maybe I will try that today.  Just maybe I will.  Remember, this is between me and you, Tereasa is not to hear about it yet.


Another 9am nap appears to be in order.  I am tired, real tired.  The reason I wait till 9am is because that is when I take my pills.  Otherwise, if I went to sleep sooner, I would just be woken by Alexa reminding me to take my 9am pills.  So I wait.
