Got a phone call from the pacemaker clinic I go to.

 

Looks like my pacemaker *is* on the recall list for a defect in the units. I'm safe for now, but in several years, I'll need a replacement.

 

What can happen is that when the battery has 4-5 years of life left in it (they can last over a dozen years), while it's being monitored, it can go into "test mode" and stay there. Meaning it gets stuck at one setting. It's not really a problem if it happens while at the clinic, but some people have monitoring devices at home, and having a hard reset in the middle of the night is not a good thing.

Well... to add insult to injuries (literally) some Broccoli cut the catalytic converter out from under my car today.  At 11:15 in the morning in broad daylight.   Only brightside is the genius pulled his mask down while he was under the car, and at one point he stood up, looked up at the camera and THEN pulled his mask up, so I had a great picture to include with the police report.

What's the difference between an Indian restaurant and a Vietnamese restaurant?

 

 

  Reveal hidden contents

Indian places are naan profit, and Vietnamese places are pho profit.

 

 

I tried so hard to laugh at that, and probably would have if I didn't immediately read it with the proper pronunciation of "pho". (For anyone who doesn't know, it's not like the word foe, but "fuh" like the f-u in fudge).

 

Sorry @TripleH!

So apparently, the D&D gaming at the FLGS is picking up lately. Our Weds night AL game has had a full table the last 3 weeks. One of the owners asked me after last Weds game if I'd be interested in running a campaign style table to go along with the AL table on Weds night. I said I'd be good for it, thou right now I kinda like how my gaming situation is right now, DM on Saturdays, Player on Weds. So we shall see.

 

The game would be ran like the Al with a entry fee, at a reduced price. I wouldn't be restricted to AL style running (ie 4 hour adventures). If I do run, I'll probably run Ghost of Saltmarsh since I did put some cash into that with the purchase of the Silver box from Beadle & Grimm for running the game at the store, pre-pandemic. I think thou I'm gonna change up my minis for the game. I think only boss type or very important encounters will have actual minis. The rest will just be tokens. This will help with travelling with game stuff each week + it'll make my DMing for both games allot easier.

 

Again, it's not set in stone, as he said he would discuss it with the other owners next Monday.

I tried to cut my left index finger off at work with the pressure washer today. It has a nice little gash in the pad. It doesn't look too bad, and it's actually mostly numb. But the darned thing is swollen up like you wouldn't believe. I went to the little rural hospital today. They x-rayed it and weren't too worried. The feeling may or may not come back, as the doctor said I got a nerve. I'm still quite worried about the swelling, I think it's full of water. We'll see how it goes tomorrow. I'm headed north to Red Deer anyway, if it looks a mess I'll stop there and ask to see a hand specialist. Hopefully I can avoid surgery.

Still need to watch Castle. It always looked right up my alley, but for some reason it's never been streaming. 

 

Also really could use a pressure washer around here, but not at the cost of a finger. Yikes!

 

Which reminds me that I need to get that new chainsaw out and running... 👀

 

It keeps raining though, which is a good excuse not to do things.

 

I want to run my own campaign again so very badly, but I've struggled to gin up interest. Everyone's all about the AL. I remain baffled. I'll probably try running for AL again, but I struggled there too. I don't have that talent to herd players along and get everybody through in the time slot.

 

We're edging back toward the store though, and I may try to make something happen then. Would love to run Pathfinder, or just find a group to play, but that's really daring to dream. Alas.

Do you need me to superglue it?
