Happy Victoria Day!

Happy Victoria Day!

Today is Monday, Victoria Day.

I would like to wish all my fellow Canadians and all my Canadian LJ friends a very Happy and safe Victoria Day.

This year's celebrations will be somewhat, if not completely, muted due to the presence world-wide of the COVID-19 pandemic that still continues to plague the world, but regardless of that, have a good day, get some rest in preparation for the (albeit shorter) week to come, and if you manage to be around or see any fireworks tonight, be safe and enjoy!

'Twas the Day After CanGames

Hope everyone is having a good day. :)

CanGames 2019 is pretty much a done deal for me, though the folks who organised and put on this year's edition of the convention are probably dealing with the aftermath of the convention and hopefully getting in some rest today as well.

While I was fighting the tail end of a bout of bronchitis and was taking an antibiotic for that and was also suffering from bad pain in my left foot and leg, I made the decision to attend the convention this year. Perhaps it wasn't the smartest decision I've made, since I was running four (4) game sessions of stuff, but I not only managed to survive CanGames but came out of it doing pretty well and in decent shape. I have to say I had a pretty good time running my games at CanGames 2018 and catching up with a few friends (and making some new ones), but I'll admit that parts of Saturday passed in a bit of a blur. The convention had a little bit of something for everyone - from children's games, through board games, miniature games, roleplaying games, and I think there may have been a LARP event, but am not sure - but I'll admit that I missed most of it. I managed to do what I set out to do at the convention, but didn't actually take all that many photos this year. (If folks who did take photos at the convention would care to share them, I'd be more than happy to see any pics and the like!)

On this holiday Monday, I'm taking it very easy, doing a bit of reading and catching up on some PVR stuff, drinking plenty of liquids (both hot and cold). I've unpacked all of the gaming stuff and it's mostly sorted out. I haven't jotted down any notes about the gaming that I did this weekend yet, but will take care of some of that later today.

I just hope the rest of this month is relatively calm and quiet in terms of everything, that I don't come down with con crud ::knock on wood:: and that I can sort out some of the diabetes problems I'm currently dealing with.

'Twas the Day After CanGames

Hope everyone is having a good day. :)

CanGames 2018 is pretty much a done deal for me, though the folks who organised and put on this year's edition of the convention are probably dealing with the aftermath of the convention and hopefully getting in some rest today as well.

I made the decision to go to the convention this year even with the diabetic ulcer on my left leg, my stomach and bowels suffering the effects of a high dose of antibiotic, and with the shoulder pain that I've been dealing with for over a year. I won't say it was the smartest decision (see below) to game pm the weekend (I was running four (4) game sessions of stuff), I managed to survive CanGames in pretty good shape or so I thought. I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a cough, the latter having gotten steadily worse as the day has gone on, though otherwise I'm feeling somewhat all right. I suspect I have the dreaded con crud - and how the heck have I come down with a bacterial infection while on an antibiotic and keeping my hands as clean as I could at the convention?? - but I have to say I had a pretty good time running my games at CanGames 2018 and catching up with a few friends, but I'll admit that most of Saturday passed in something of a blur. The convention had a little bit of something for everyone - from children's games, through board games, miniature games, roleplaying games, and I think there may have been a LARP event that I may have heard about - but I'll admit that I missed most of it. I managed to do what I set out to do at the convention, but didn't actually take all that many photos at the convention this year. (If folks who did take photos at the convention would care to share them, I'd be more than happy to see any pics and the like!)

On this holiday Monday, I've been taking it very easy, doing a bit of reading and catching up on some PVR stuff, drinking hot liquids and taking some cough drops (sugar-free, of course!). Haven't managed to put away some of the gaming stuff yet. I haven't jotted down any notes about the gaming that I did this weekend yet, but will take care of some of that now. After I have a hot cup of tea.

I just hope the rest of this month is relatively calm and quiet in terms of everything, that I can recover quickly from this darned con crud I'm dealing with now, and that I can sort out some of the diabetes problems I'm currently dealing with.

'Twas the Day After CanGames

Hope everyone is having a good day. :)

CanGames is pretty much a done deal for me, though the folks who organised and put on this year's edition of the convention are probably dealing with the aftermath of the convention and hopefully getting in some rest today as well.

I made the decision to go to the convention this year after suffering a major case of allergies which led to a massive bout of asthma this weekend, and on Friday my voice was already down and dwindling. While it was not the smartest decision to go and game on the weekend (I was running four (4) game sessions of stuff), I managed to survive CanGames (barely). While I'm feeling extremely fatigued and exhausted, and the allergies/asthma attack are completely overwhelming my body right now (and I may have caught the dreaded con crud, on top of all that), I have to say I had a pretty good time running my games at CanGames 2017 and catching up with a few friends, but most of it has passed in a blur. The convention had a little bit for everyone - from children's games, through board games, miniature games, roleplaying games, and I think there were a couple of LARP events that I may have heard about - but I'll admit that I missed most of it. I was feeling under the weather (to put it mildly!), so I didn't actually take any photos or the like at the convention this year. (If folks who did take photos at the convention would care to share them, I'd be more than happy to see any pics and the like!)

On this holiday Monday, I'm just taking it easy, puttering around somewhat, having lots of hot liquids, Tylenol when I need it, watching some PVR stuff, and have managed to put away some of the gaming stuff. ve been trying to take it somewhat easy. Haven't jotted down any notes about the gaming that I did this weekend yet, but will take care of some of that now. After I have a hot cup of tea.

I just hope the rest of this month is relatively calm and quiet in terms of everything, that I can recover quickly from this sickness I'm dealing with now, and that I can sort out some of the diabetes problems I'm currently dealing with.

'Twas the Day After CanGames

Hope everyone is having a good day. :)

While CanGames is pretty much a done deal for me, the convention actually continued today as it celebrated its 40th Anniversary with an extra partial day of gaming.

While I'm feeling extremely tired and am having some serious left ankle and foot pain and swelling, and some mild back aches today, I have to say that I had a pretty good time and a mostly enjoyable weekend at CanGames 2016. The convention had a little bit for everyone - from children's games, through board games, miniature games, roleplaying games, and I think there were a couple of LARP events that I may have heard about - but I'll be the first to admit I didn't have too much time to see lots of stuff. (I did take a few photos with my mobile phone, and hope that a few others who took photos at the convention will share them with me or put some of them up!)

On this holiday Monday, I've been trying to take it somewhat easy. A bit of reading, watching some PVR and/or DVD stuff, unpacking and sorting out the gaming stuff and then putting things away, and jotting down a couple of basics for the LJ blogs I intend to write up about this year's CanGames (there will likely be three or four of these, with some photos as well).

I'm hoping that the rest of this month is relatively calm and quiet in terms of everything, and that I can sort out a few health problems I'm currently suffering from.

For now, changing the bed linen awaits.

Then, I'll probably start the re-install of the operating system of the computer, and see if I can a) get it running properly; and b) get back on the interwebs.
