Happy Birthday, aearwen2!!

Happy birthday, aearwen2!!

Today is my favourite California friend's birthday. I've known aearwen2 for...well since the days of Fidonet (and that dates both of us, yes it does!). Oddly enough, we've never met. We've been virtual friends, sharing our lives for many, many years now, and I love her like a sister.

Happy Birthday, my dear! I know that you've had a difficult time of it this last few months, but just for today, I hope that all of life's problems get put on hold for a bit. May the Goddess bless you with good health, good cheer, good trade winds, prosperity, and another interesting year in the life.

Goddess bless ya, dear! :)

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning.

Another hot, scorching day in the Ottawa valley for the day. It's already 23oC, and is heading for a high of 32 (with a slightly warmer humidex).

Nothing to report health-wise, other than the usual. And the fact that I've got a bad headache this morning (too litte hydration, perhaps?).

Anyway, stuff to do for the morning, aside from the usual.

Saturday Night Thoughts

Have had a mostly quiet day of it today.

Woke up Saturday feeling pretty decent, other than a headache and stuffed head. When I got up, I discovered the pain in my feet and the left ankle/foot particularly was pretty bad. Managed to get through the morning unscathed, with nothing unusual happening.

Another scorcher of a day here in Ottawa, hitting 32oC here this afternoon. Stayed indoors as much as possible, and hydrated.

I spent the morning and part of the afternoon working on some stuff for the Primeval RPG and some stuff for my Promised Sands 2nd Edition game that I'll be running (hopefully in the near future), and then when spross came by, went out to Billings Bridge to pick up a birthday card or three. By the time I got home again, I couldn't walk for the rest of the afternoon, and relaxed with an afternoon snack of veggies and hummus before making supper for the evening.

I've spent part of the evening creating the basics for a couple of beasties for the Primeval RPG, and writing up the basics for a scenario for the game with cavemen as the focus (thanks to a Twitter discussion I had with Morgan Ellis). A productive evening, if I say so myself.

I'm going to take my insulin injection soon, and then crash for the night and try and get a decent night's sleep.

Happy Birthday, Viktor!

Today is my LJ friend, viktor_haag's, birthday!

Happy Birthday, Viktor. Here's wishing you a terrific birthday. May the Goddess bless you with happiness, good health, prosperity, and joy in all that you do, and may there always be a warm wind at your back for the coming year.

Have a terrific birthday, mate. :)

Brexit...to Canada?

Well, well, well...

I can't say I'm surprised, per sé, but didn't expect that many searches on this and soooooo quickly.

Britons seek to "move to Canada" After Brexit Vote

Friday Night Gaming Session Cancelled

Gaming is off for tonight with the Friday night group.

Today is my goddaughter's birthday, and her mother is taking her over to her brother's for the weekend so they won't be out tonight. I spoke to the other three players, and they decided that they didn't want to play tonight without Kathy and Ellie, so gaming is off for tonight.

This means that we won't be continuing the Primeval RPG campaign this evening, so I've got the night off to relax and do other things. Probably going to try and catch up on some of my reading, as I've fallen a bit behind on that this month.

United Kingdom Brexit Vote Results

I don't have a lot to say about the United Kingdom (united no more soon, methinks) and the Brexit vote last night, though I was somewhat surprised that the "Remain"s didn't take it in a close vote. The fact that the vote to "Leave" won, but was so close, indicates to me that Britain is a politically divided country now in more ways than one.

I wasn't surprised by David Cameron's decision to resign as Prime Minister, but am glad that he will see the country through some of the early days of the consequences of the Brexit vote into October, but am concerned about what will happen after that.

I am quite saddened by these results.

Oy vey, what a mess.

Happy Birthday, Ellie!

Happy Birthday, Ellie!

Today is my goddaughter, Ellie's, birthday. I'm not allowed to say how old she is, but speaking as a godfather, I have to say they grow up so fast!

You're growing into a great young woman, and I am so proud of you and happy for you on this, your birthday. I hope you have a terrific day on this, your special day. May the Goddess bless you with happiness, good health, fortune, may you always have a warm breeze at your back! - and may your presents today be those that you want.

Happy Birthday, Ellie! :)

Friday Morning Thoughts

Feeling marginally better today, but not so that you'd notice. I managed to get in 6-1/2 hours of sleep last night without too much tossing and turning. So that's good news.

It's been almost four days since I took the Lyrica, and the pain in my left ankle and foot, not to mention some in the right foot, has intensified somewhat. It's not something that I can easily describe, to be honest, so I'm not going to try.

I've come in to work this morning, and am going about my job as efficiently as I can, but am being a bit terse with folks today, as my mood is not that great.

I'll be picking up the Gabapentin on my way home from work, and then I plan to spend the afternoon doing some work on some Promised Sands (1st Edition) characters, and statting out a dinosaur or two for the Primeval RPG. (I do wish I had a link to use for the Primeval RPG, dammit!) Beyond that, I'm not even thinking.

A Quick LJ Entry

I'm having a bit of a difficult time of it right now, health-wise.

Not sure when I'll be blogging up something personal again. Stuff is just a bit too rough to deal with much else right now.

Look for a blog entry here again when I'm up to it.
