  1. I plan to bring mine! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. As of Friday, MrBoot and I are fully vaccinated! To celebrate, I went grocery shopping after work on Monday, sans mask. It was the first time I've gone to a public place without masking, and it felt...very very weird. I'm not sure if I'm just not used to being able to see clearly all the time (stupid glasses), but I had this odd sense of vertigo the whole time. Also, the realization that other people could see my face made me feel like the whole world was staring at it, which made me self-conscious about whether I was accidentally making weird faces. It's going to take
  3. I'm hoping we end up being one of those, but I suspect we won't; my guess is that the temp agency I was working for messed up my withholding. That unexpected $1.2K check really stung. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. It brings to mind the time I first DM'd, and the party had reached the bandit camp where the final boss of the module (Kingmaker) was situated. Well, actually, this was a substitute final boss since MrBoot's goblin PC had snuck off alone and killed the real final boss in his sleep in the previous session, but that's another story. In this bandit camp there was also a caged owlbear. This fact comes into play later. There are several ways the PCs can get into the bandit complex, and my players discovered a secret tunnel, but opted for the front door approach (because on
  5. The curse of being a fast, reliable, hard worker who has both made herself indispensable and doesn't know how to say "No" : You will ALWAYS end up with more work to do. I'm rising to the occasion and all, but the edges of burnout are starting to peek around the corner. The situation is currently unavoidable due to my co-worker counterpart being out sick all week (he's typically very reliable, so he must have something super nasty to keep him down (it's not Covid, likely food poisoning)), but if it continues much longer, I may end up asking for help with at least a couple of the thi
  6. [Obligatory belated FIRST! long after several other FIRST! posts] [Exclamation of dismay at not actually being first] Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. I started my new position at the front desk yesterday! Except kinda not really because none of my logins for the different programs are set up yet. IT assures me they are "working on it." Also, the other member of my old team had to leave early because he wasn't feeling well, so I had to handle all of his stuff, plus some of my old stuff, plus various people trying to teach me New Stuff. It was, as they say, a DAY. Same situation today, but I'm handling it a bit better. It's still frustrating to be caught between two different jobs; haven't quite left the
  8. *fist bump of solidarity* Same here. Unfortunately, I got a nasty surprise when my additional income last year apparently bumped us up into the next tax bracket. Wallet is very ouchy now. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. I submitted my classes late, so it might take a bit for them to show up on the schedule. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. You are welcome to also stop by for foods! If we time things right, we could all do lunch together. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. Wow. Well, no wonder resin costs more! This is going on my "daily jokes for my office" list. I thank him every day; I use them EXTENSIVELY at my work, and am very grateful for their existence. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. Thst would be lovely! You can see our new place (it's only a couple miles from the previous one, not hard to find), and we can do foods. I'll have to think about whether I'm bringing Ma'al this year or not; I'm hoping to have a smaller example of LOOK SHINY done by then. However, if my entry plans work out, I might request a ride for a large aquatic tentacle monster from space. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. Since I work at our county health department, I anticipate masks being required a bit longer. I'm mostly okay with that, especially since I will be moving to a position working at the front desk. I just have another week to go before I'm considered fully vaccinated. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  14. Since I quite recently have acquired a real, actual, grown-up salaried job, my vacation days are going to be quite limited for...quite awhile. So as much as I'd like to go on a Most Epic Road Trip, I think in the interest of time I'll have to fly this year. :( Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. To my surprise, I'm finding that round 2 has overall been less severe than round 1 aftereffects. Round 1 I was flat in bed the whole next day, while round 2 I was able to do a tiny bit of puttering around the house. I'm feeling nearly better by now, energy reserves are still down, but I don't feel like my muscles have all turned to pudding anymore. Even my shoulder is almost back to normal. I now have a great deal of empathy for anyone who suffers from chronic fatigue; being unable to do anything but the most simple tasks has been frustrating. Even just taking a quick shower was e
