The slow crawl

Filed under: news of the day — lexifab @ 12:15 pm

Still in a perpetual “Long slow God are we there yet Wednesday afternoon” mindset. Still constantly tired. Still rather sore all over, particularly around the neck. I actually thought I might be coming down with the flu, yesterday afternoon, but actually I think it was just a slight variant on the usual stress symptoms. On the whole, and actual flu would probably be better for me – I could stop martyring myself by going to work all day and feeling crap for it, and just concentrate on feeling crap while tucked up in my bed.

Still, there are plenty of bright spots. The lounge room renovations are coming along, slowly but with occasional spurts of real progress. Tomorrow we will probably do some painting or put up the timber backing braces for the curtains.

I got to do some game playing on the weekend – an all-afternoon mashup between Buffy, Heroes and Castle Ravenloft, which was just relaxing and easygoing fun. I got to play the super-strong computer geek in a haunted castle where technology didn’t work :)  It was a fun one-off – I should probably look at playing more of those, where there’s no expectation of carrying on for multiple sessions.

Other than that, though, my mind is fuzzy and tired and I appear to have lost the knack for forming strong opinions or getting angry about gross iniquity. Someone want to point out something I should be furious about?


  1. Only blood elves can use bllodthistle. This means there are no drugs of addiction for trolls in WoW!
    This is inequitable. Maintain the rage! X(

  2. I knew I could count on you, Clam! 🙂

    Well, you know, there are options, like good old fashioned alcohol, which is available in abundance and makes your screen go funny . But for your better class of addicted toons, may I recommend the Azerothian equivalent of high quality cocaine (or possibly PCP) – Winterfall firewater! Not only does it make you big and full of angry strength, but it’s a rare drop and only found in one area. So you’ll pay a bomb to maintain your habit.

    Sadly, it has no crippling side effects, except for possibly creating the fatal impression of making your squishy casters think they can win in melee with winterfall furbolgs 🙂
