Conquest Sac: Friday night

Got there at 9:00 PM…got badge…went to RPG room…1 RPG being played…2 boardgames being played…waited to see if anyone would show up for my game…nobody did, altho one fellow, who showed up for the other scheduled RPG (for which not even the GM showed up), said he’d play in mine if other plasyers showed…as in past years, nobody showed up…looked around the con…very small, but the wargames/minis games were all full up and going like gangbusters…came home at 10:30 PM.

I’ll be going back today, with hopes of running an RPG/Minis arena battle game. I expect it will be a bust, too. ConquestSac is not an RPG oriented con.

Starting Up Your First Dugong Ranch

…step 1: Get some dugongs

Doc Health Update: I am feeling much better, despite the odd bit of coughing and the regular hacking up of alien lifefroms.

In other news, I hope to do some blogging tonight, after putting the finish touches on the Over The Edge pulp game I’m supposed to run at ConquestSac tomorrow night,

Speaking of which…HEY, SACRAMENTO/NORCAL GAMING BUDDIES! Are any of you going to be at ConquestSac this weekend? I’ll be there Friday night and at least Saturday morning/afternoon.

Now, I must go buy tea. Will blog later.

Ronald Reagan Was A Miserable Son Of a Bitch

…that’ll get the emails flowing

Ya know how sometimes, when you have a sore throat and cough, you try all sorts of sleep positions but none of them help keep you from coughing? Well, I’ve been going through that for days. Even with the help of the Lorazepam, I’d still get the coughing fits.

And then I tried sleeping on a blanket on the living room floor. Bingo! I slept there last night for about 4.5 hours, with only a couple of minor semi-awakenings due to curious Winkerdogs wondering why the Dad Unit was on her turf.

Later, I crawled into the bed for 3 more hours sleep. At present, I feel pretty good and can almost pass for human.

More Blogging later.

Doctor Silkmelon Goes Into The Deepest Jungle

…but only for a week.

Doc Update

Still not feeling well AND had to go to both ER and Ugent Care today before I got the right antianxiety drugs whic then let me sleep a few few (3) hours of fitful sleep. Missed a day of work, which suck ass. Will soon dose up on the meds and then hit the sack until morning. Feel rather like shit just now. more bloggage when I’m outta my coma.

The Cupcake Elves Battle The Chowder Gnomes

…with help from the Meatloaf Pixies

Doc Health Update

Sore throat is merely annoying, but neck glands are tender…sinuses and nose are at a steady, tho not fully operational, snot production rate…headache is still trying hard to make me its bitch…body only slightly achey…slept last night from 10:30 until 7:30 this morning, in solid 2 hour chunks that were punctuated briefly by coughing, blowing my nose or getting up to pee.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to sleep in 3-4 hour chunks tonight. Tomorrow is a busy mystery shopping day for Grace and I.

Sorry about no P, P & P update. Maybe tomorrow night.

Pickle Pancakes


Well, today looks to be a challenging day, given that yesterday I had a sore throat that triggered panic attacks all night and kept me from falling asleep until 6 AM. Then, it was sleep for an hour or so, get up to pee, sleep for an hour or so, get up to pee, etc.

So, I’m running on just shy of 5 hours of sleep and a hefty dose of my beloved extra strong tea.

Despite having a headache that would make a lesser man cry, I’m feeling ok. Throat feels better, sinuses were a bit tender this morning (because I used a Breathe Right strip in a cold bedroom) but are feeling ok now.

I’ll do my 8 hours at work, come home, eat, take some Kava Kava to help me sleep, then hopefully get about 10 hours of mentally and physically healing sleep.

Oh, and I’ll try to post a short P, P & P tonight, too.
