I will not be gaming with the Friday night gamers this evening.

While I am feeling somewhat better, I’m still coughing pretty badly at times, and my voice is still hoarse and a bit croak-y. So no point really trying to run a game or even board game tonight.

I had really hoped to be able to game tonight, and was frankly looking forward to getting back into the Friday campaign of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, but such is not the case. Hopefully, the
Icons will smile down on me somewhat soon, like next week. Please. 🙂

‘Tis another Sunday morning.

I will not be gaming with the Sunday afternoon gamers today.

Aside from the fact that Tammy is on call this week (and next), I’m still somewhat sick, having the cough that comes and goes, and my voice is raspy and rather frog-like. I had hoped to be able to game by today, and was looking forward to getting back into the Sunday campaign of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, but such is not to be the case.

*sigh*

I *have* mentioned how much I hate con crud, haven’t it? 😦

I’m still sick with whatever bug it is that I have (I’m suspecting now that the con crud turned into pneumonia or perhaps bronchitis), and am just not up to gaming tonight. Add to that the fact that I’m still voiceless pretty much, and well, no point trying to run a game or even board game.

Nothing New or Improved Here June 2, 2017

Nothing to report of any consequence.

I am still sick. Coughing away, some blood. Left shoulder in severe pain (the coughing has probably not helped.) And to top it off, I’m still talking like a fracking choking frog. Barely have any voice.

The doctor still hasn’t received the x-rays that were taken at the hospital the same day I went to see him. Bugger it all. 😦

Working from home. Just trying to cope. Not doing it very well.

In Retrospect June 1, 2017

I’ve thought about this a lot the last week or so…

In retrospect, going to CanGames 2017 the weekend of May 19th was the stupidest, worst decision I’ve made this year so far.

My foolish pride and honouring my committment to run the games there, not to mention the desire not to disappoint the people who’d signed up for games that I was going to run there, combined with my diabetes (condition), that’s been my downfall the past (roughly) two weeks.

Stupid, dumb me.

‘Tis the 1st of June June 1, 2017

June 1st. The start of a new month.

And I couldn’t care less.

While last month was pretty good for the early part of it, the second half of May was pretty rough. With the exception of CanGames, most of which I don’t remember, though I know I had some fun running the games I did (as the Whispering GM), I’ve spent the last part of the month pretty ill. I may have had something just before the convention, I definitely got con crud at the convention, and it may have mutated to something else. Maybe pneumonia? (The antibiotics that I’m on don’t seem to have done much for my condition, and I’ll be out of them by Sunday or so. We’ll see what happens after that.)

On the down side with June, this is the day that truly heralds the coming of summer for me, and the hot weather that I really dislike. (Yes, even though I was born in summer, on an exceedingly hot day in the year of my birth, I really *hate* the heat and summer.)

Anyway, June is not off to a good start, and I just hope things don’t get worse.

In the meantime, “One day at a time in June” is my motto.

Monday Morning Blahs May 29, 2017

I woke up this morning after getting what feels like very little sleep. Felt terrible.

I’m not going into details about what’s happening with me today. Not worth the effort here. I am wondering whether part of it is due to the weather (wet and somewhat warm), but don’t know for sure.

I was going to work from home today, but with what’s ailing me today that’s not an option. Suffice to say, I’m going to take it very easy, and try and heal a bit. Goddess willing.

I will not be gaming with the Sunday afternoon gamers today.

I don’t have much of a voice at the moment (it’s now just a scratchy, hollow sounding thing, with lots of burbling in it, meh), but I’m still feeling pretty ill and am coughing away like it’s nobody’s business. It’s been three and a half days since I started taking the antibiotic and I don’t think it’s taken effect yet, or it’s something else going on entirely (perhaps viral now?).

I had hoped to be able to game by today, and was looking forward to getting back into the Sunday campaign of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, but such is not the case.

Have I mentioned how much I hate con crud? 😦

While I still don’t have much of a voice (so you can continue to call me the Whispering GM, or perhaps “Whispering John” (hmm…there’s a villain or beastie of some sort there :)), the antibiotic hasn’t taken effect yet, and the con crud has laid me out somewhat.

‘Twas the Day After CanGames May 22, 2017

Hope everyone is having a good day. 🙂

CanGames is pretty much a done deal for me, though the folks who organised and put on this year’s edition of the convention are probably dealing with the aftermath of the convention and hopefully getting in some rest today as well.

I made the decision to go to the convention this year after suffering a major case of allergies which led to a massive bout of asthma this weekend, and on Friday my voice was already down and dwindling. While it was not the smartest decision to go and game on the weekend (I was running four (4) game sessions of stuff), I managed to survive CanGames (barely). While I’m feeling extremely fatigued and exhausted, and the allergies/asthma attack are completely overwhelming my body right now (and I may have caught the dreaded con crud, on top of all that), I have to say I had a pretty good time running my games at CanGames 2017 and catching up with a few friends, but most of it has passed in a blur. The convention had a little bit for everyone – from children’s games, through board games, miniature games, roleplaying games, and I think there were a couple of LARP events that I may have heard about – but I’ll admit that I missed most of it. I was feeling under the weather (to put it mildly!), so I didn’t actually take any photos or the like at the convention this year. (If folks who did take photos at the convention would care to share them, I’d be more than happy to see any pics and the like!)

On this holiday Monday, I’m just taking it easy, puttering around somewhat, having lots of hot liquids, Tylenol when I need it, watching some PVR stuff, and have managed to put away some of the gaming stuff. ve been trying to take it somewhat easy. Haven’t jotted down any notes about the gaming that I did this weekend yet, but will take care of some of that now. After I have a hot cup of tea.

I just hope the rest of this month is relatively calm and quiet in terms of everything, that I can recover quickly from this sickness I’m dealing with now, and that I can sort out some of the diabetes problems I’m currently dealing with.
