Yesterday was Christmas Day. Being a single fellow, with little family left in the world, ’twas a day where I got to spend much of it on my own.
I woke up to find that my leg pain had diminished somewhat overnight, and that I was comfortably toasty in bed. I decided to lay in a bit longer, since there was no gaming for the day (and even if there had been, I wouldn’t be running it so there! 😛 ), and when I did get up, I headed upstairs for breakfast.
Had a nice breakfast of croissants and café au lait, and then went back to bed for a bit, and snoozed. Got up and jotted down an idea or two for a couple of Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG scenarios, and then made some notes in the margins about them. Quite pleased with myself about this material, but we’ll see how it shapes up after the game actually comes out. I did a bit of reading before showering, and then had a relatively early lunch.
After lunch, I did a bit of vacuuming in the bedroom and the living room, and then relaxed and took another nap. Then it was time to watch the second disc of the 3rd season of Rizzoli & Isles, and rather enjoyed that.
I had myself a healthy meal for supper, consisting of roast chicken, a salad, some cooked snow peas, and lentils with cumin and onion. Yummy! For dessert, I had a couple of latkes (a Hanukkah tradition) with some apple sauce and drizzled honey. Even Yummier! 🙂 After cleaning the dishes away, I sat back and watched the evening’s new episode of The Librarians, followed by the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”. It was a fun, light-hearted episode, that wasn’t Christmas-y at all, had a lot of nods to the superhero genre, and was a terrific Peter Capaldi outing.
I wrapped up the evening with my nightly insulin shot, and then went to bed and did some more reading before falling asleep.

Last day of the work week, and the Friday before the Christmas weekend. It’s a brutally cold day here in the Ottawa valley. As I write this, the temperature outside is a frigid -24oC (that’s -11.2oF for my American friends), and that’s without the wind chill factor.
To add insult to injury, there’s been a problem with the heating system here at work for the last day or so, and I’m sitting here at my desk wearing a sweater and my indoors hoodie. And have already had a hot cup of cinnamon tea already here at the office.
There’s almost no one here today at the office, only around 6 to 10 of my fellow workers, and the Christmas party is at noon today. Should be interesting, to be sure.
The weather forecast for the weekend is pretty dreadful, with a lot of snow and freezing rain over the course of Saturday and Sunday, so I’m not sure how much gaming I’ll be getting in this weekend. That said, I’ve got some stuff I’m working on for the Continuum: Roleplaying in the Yet RPG campaign that I’m running on Wednesday nights, there’s some editing that I’m doing (though I hope for the weekend off from that), and I’m supposed to game with the Friday night group tonight.
Here’s hoping for a calm, relaxed weekend. 🙂

After having gotten to play in DavidM’s game on Friday nights and SteveR’s game on Sunday afternoons a little bit now, I wish to offer these two thoughts.
1. My writing speed has slowed down somewhat.
2. When I try to write notes fast, my writing becomes messy and at times illegible. Even to me.

Yes, I know I’ve not blogged a great deal the last few days.
Truth be told, I’ve been busy doing other things – watching some DVDs, working on some game material that I’m writing up for the Polaris RPG, and editing a game manuscript (that I can’t talk about).
In the meantime, work goes on as usual, my left leg and ankle continue to hurt a lot, and I’ve got my regularly scheduled footcare appointment this afternoon.
Take care, everyone.
