I am more than a little worried

Hey Hey Hey, its GenCon Registration Monday. It’s going to be a great July, 12, 2020. The sun is supposed to be out but its not supposed to break 90, so it’s all good. I am loving July weather so far, yeah it was ridiculously hot and muggy a few days but the rest of the days have been quite lovely.


Last night we played in Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons campaign Eberron. H (my character) actually got to less than 1/2 hit points meaning he took a lot of damage. I was in no danger of dying mind you, but still less than 1/2. But we triumphed as a group. We had fun. And we will be back in 2 weeks. 2 weeks because Jason has his big surgery on next Thursday. He won’t be in any shape to try to DM on Sunday. He says he will play in Feise San Aeglais on Tuesday, but if he can’t, he can’t, I understand. I don’t want him to press things.


So the big thing I have for today is GENCON REGISTRATION. The day I have been waiting for, for at least a week 😛 I have my wish list all ready to be submitted at 11am sharp (12 eastern). I hope Gen Con has their servers up to par for the hit they are gonna take. I imagine that a goodly number of people are gonna be hitting the server at the same time. I just hope they don’t crash.


Also today I am waiting to hear back from Dr. Alkhateeb’s staff about whether or not I can have Mayo’s out patient Plantar Fasciitis surgery. Dr. A and I discussed it before and said I had to be in remission. Well, I am in remission now and my heel hurts. My knee hurts too but that is unfixable. So, the surgery is done totally out patient, takes about a half hour, then they send you on your way. Can’t see why I couldn’t get that done now. Since I am gonna live for a while longer, I want to be in as little pain as possible.


I came up with a plan for Feise San Aeglais, I worked on it some yesterday and I am going to work on it some more today since I have a lot of spare time on Mondays. I would tell you all about my plot change, but at least 2 of my players read my blog and I don’t want to spoil it for them. Just leave it as I came up with a new plot that is going to take effect this week or next week depending on how things go.

Feise San Aeglais is my dungeons and dragons campaign that runs on Tuesday nights. Prior to my coming up with a new plot, they will just finding odd items on lists provided by the mages guild. I only completely finished 2 lists and it turns out that is all I will need. Whew, sucky plotline has to go. Good plotline will be interesting at least and should be more fun.


Then Wednesday is a dead day for me. I would whine about Wednesday, but it won’t do any good. It is reserved for Cori’s campaign if she ever gets it done (to be honest, I don’t think she has even started on it yet). It’s all good, Teresa doesn’t want me playing every night. So Wednesday is a good day to have off, for now.


25 days till my 50th Birthday. 25 days till my mom signs me up for AARP. Might end up being a short membership, but hey I am not gonna pay for it.


17 days till the start of Gen Con Online. The best 4 days of gaming (or so they claim). I plan to have fun. 8 games if 4 days sounds like a lot, but I can do it. I have 2 games with games I know, D&D and Cthullu, the other 6 games are brand new to me, so it should be interesting. I have the same GM for 2 of the games, I hope I like them.


I’m stressing about Seasonal Affective Disorder. It won’t hit till mid-September, but it hits like a Mac Truck. The Depression is the worst that I get. Full blown Doom and Gloom Depression. A disassociate myself from all my friends and shut down completely. It’s a scary time for me. I have an Ace up my sleeve this year in Dr. Eastin. Dr. Eastin has said that there are new anti-depressant meds that I shouldn’t react to. We tried one when I got depressed before, the side effect was unacceptable. But I am willing to try another one. Hell, anything that can get me thru SAD season will be a winning in my book. I have an appointment with Dr. Eastin on July 21st. He doesn’t know it yet, but we are going to have a substantial talk about SAD and come up with a plan to battle it. September isn’t really that far off.


And the week of GenCon goes Monday chemo Tuesday Chemo Wednesday Chemo Thursday Gen Con Friday Gen Con Saturday Gen Con Sunday Gen Con Monday sleep all day. A full week of stuff. Haven’t had one of those in years. I know its gonna be tiring but its gonna be all good. Really, if anyone can do it, I can do it.


Someone keeps trying to phish my email password from my mchsi.com account. They obviously don’t know my wife works for Mediacom and can put their email on the block list. HA. Stupid phishing people, you should know your audience better.
