Let there be Art and more

Last night I contacted two of my friends who happen to be artsy.  One intentionally, one totally randomly and asked them to draw a character portrait of Mit and his pets.  Kim, the one I remembered did art, was unsure she could draw him but was going to give it a try.  I appreciated that.  Now Cyd, I literally just clicked her name to say heya.  A random clicking on my Facebook friends list, we got talking, then got talking about Dungeons and Dragons, then got talking about how I was trying to get a pic of Mit and his pets, she chimed up that she could do that with a good description.  I had totally forgotten than Cyd did art.  Well, I gave her the description, she asked a few questions, and BOOM, she started on it this morning.  Yeah buddy, I will have 2 pics of Mit Haustieren and his pets to show off.  Way cool.


Today at 11:30 I have the 2nd try to have a video appointment with Dr. Eastin, my shrink.  As you recall, last time didn’t go so well.  Gonna try on my phone and hope for the best.  The worst that happens is next try is a phone call for him to ask me how I am doing.


I have decided that if my bone marrow biopsy is clean at the end of May, mid-June I am starting a 2nd campaign.   I already have a couple players lined up.  If I have to go to reddit to find players, I am going to specify over 30 years old in my Looking for Players post.  Otherwise I will get a lot of college kids, which isn’t a bad thing per se, but not my gaming demographic. I like older gamers.  They are much more relaxed.  And in general I have more fun with them.  Yeah, I am going to discriminate based on age, but hey it’s my game and I can do what I want.


Starting my 2nd campaign mid-June means I probably won’t be running any more Friday Night games on the Gang Gaming server.   I will just be too busy.  2 campaigns is quite a bit of work.  Plus playing in Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons Eberron game, and maybe Cori’s game if she gets it going by then.  I will be really Dungeons and Dragons busy.  But I can do it, I can run a 2nd campaign while playing in others, its all good.


Tomorrow night I hope to run my one (maybe 2) shot on the Gang Gaming server.  I would have ran it last week but I got some bug that made me feel like crap, so I cancelled.  This week, I hope it goes off good.


April is all but over, and nothing  much has changed.  I still lay here in bed thinking how my life would be different if I wasn’t crazy and I didn’t have cancer and there wasn’t a lockdown.  1 of the 3 is close to being gone.

But I tell ya we aren’t ready for the lockdown to do be lifted.  Nope, the second wave of the Corona Virus is in all likelihood gonna be worse.  Many many more people are going to get sick, many more people are going to die.  History has shown us this much.


I go thru another round of chemo, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.  I still don’t want to do chemo, but I do want to live.  So, I will do chemo.   Worse though is that I have to drive downtown again.  Bah.  Can’t wait for them to open up the Clive office again.  Its so much closer and easy to get to.


I’m still not playing any video games.  Just don’t feel like it.  Danny asked me what I was playing and my response was Nothing.  Heh, maybe someday.


Someone asked me why don’t I make my WordPress sit look all pretty.  Well, I might have when it first started but I didn’t look up how and now its all about cancer and Dungeons and Dragons, and the plain site looks about right imo.


Well, its almost med time and then a nap before my shrink visit. So I am going to end this here.  I hope you all have the best day that you can.  PEACE.
