Things to do when game night is cancelled

Well, Jason’s Sunday night Dungeons and Dragons Eberron game got cancelled tonight, real life got in the way of gaming.  I hope you feel better soon, Dave.  And Jason, I hope you have a peaceful evening.  It’s a bummer, but stuff happens.  It’s ok though, I’m bummed yeah, but I still hadn’t thought of anything good for Mit’s character advancement, so maybe it’s all for the better.  Jason says we will get together some time this week (probably Thursday) and play this session and then play again on next Sunday.  This is fine with me.  I offered to run a one shot tonight, but Jason turned it down cuz he was too wiped out from family things.  So, no game tonight whatsoever.  Big change in plans.


i guess I will work some on my Babbel Spanish program tonight instead.  I’ve had the subscription for 3 days and only have finished 2 little sections.  I am a slacker.  Either that or I sleep too much and have other things to do when I am awake.  Yeah, I like that excuse better.  But tonight I have no excuse, I will learn some more Spanish.


I’m also thinking of writing a book again, same premise as the last one that I deleted, but better this time.  My mind is finally in a good place again and I think I can do it.  100,000 to 115,000 words for sci-fi/fantasy.  I think I can do that.  Heck, when I am writing this blog its between 600 and 1000 words a day.  So yeah, as long as my mind doesn’t go all fracturaly again, I should be able to do it.  I might just start that tonight as well.  I got a few hours to burn.


I think I might try reading again too.  Haven’t been able to reliably read since the transplant.  But like I said, my mind is finally back to some semblance of normal and I think I might just be able to read some of the books I have been putting off.  It would give me something to do between appointments at Mayo instead of bugging Teresa.


Amazing what 2 years after transplant can do to your mind.  Yes, I am almost at 2 years.  On the 17th it will be 2 years since my transplant.  Much to the surprise of all the doctors I have dealt with.  Seems I am 12 months past expiration and still holding on.  Dr. Alkhateeb is probably, if he hasn’t already, gonna write a paper about me.  Ya see,  MDS comes in several different flavors (at least that is what I understand) and I have the worst one.  I should’ve been dead a long time ago, but obviously I am not and no one has been able to explain how.  I blame good thoughts and prayers.  I got a whole army out there sending me good thoughts and another whole army out there praying for me, that’s got to count for something.  And there is the fact that I don’t want to leave Teresa alone, so I keep plugging along.


Speaking of Teresa, she is playing Kingdom Hearts III again.  She has only beat it several times that I remember.  But like I did with Skyrim, she just keeps going back.  I enjoy watching her while she plays, she glows with joy while she kills the Heartless.  Almost like a little kid playing a game.  Just pure happiness on her face, like nothing else matters in the world.  She only gets this look while playing KH3, other games she gets the serious dangerous look.  It’s all good, I don’t want the TV for anything so let her play and have fun.


My Tuesday night Dungeons and Dragons campaign should resume this Tuesday assuming everyone is feeling ok.  Last session, as you may recall, I cancelled cuz it was a chemo day and I was asleep.  And the session before that one got cut short because of technical issues.  So, I think we have only had 1 full session of that campaign so far.  Well, I am hoping to make it 2 this coming Tuesday.


I am also hoping that someone steps up and runs any game on Friday night on the Gang Gaming Server.  I don’t have the energy right now to run multiple games in a week.  So, it won’t be me.  However, I know at least 3 others who could run a one two or three shot and be fine.  We’ll see if one of them steps up.  I am down for just about any game, so someone please claim it.  THANKS.


I signed up for Gamer Loot Box for 3 months, just to see how geeky they can get.  This month does have a cool t-shirt and I am always up for t-shirts.  It was a little pricey but within my monthly budget.  I thought about signing up for Dungeon-in-a-Box but the last thing I need is more modules.  Heh.  So I skipped that one.  I think I am done spending for the month at this point, even though I have money left so to speak.  i realize its only the 10th, stopping now might just leave me money for something cool later in the month.


Heh, this blog entry has taken me an hour and a half.  Weird.  I did waste a lot of that time watching Teresa play.  So I guess I am done, got a specific song I want to share tonight, I hope there is a video for it.  An old video for it, not one from a movie.  Found one.

Yeah, if you know me, me playing this song is irony.  But hey, it’s a good song.
