In spite of the absolute lack of content on the blog, I’m still alive and kicking.
Those who follow it regularly might recall my (rather loopy) post-operation post with some details about the hemicolectomy to remove a cancerous tumor on my right colon. Since then, I’ve had surgery twice more to open up my leg and remove infected tissue – which is still being treated with an open wound with packing changed daily.
Sufficiently grossed out yet? Hey, feel better – at least you’re not here, looking down at said open wound and the drainage. Now that’s gross.
Some days are better than others, but we’re slowly getting to the stage where more days are “meh” than bad. I won’t go so far as to say we’re having “good” days, yet, since being so much as a few minutes late on prescription pain pills results in a lot of bad mojo. I’ll start saying we’re having good days when I can get off those and dwarf up a bit more.
Since I haven’t been working, though, I’ve had some time to spend in-game when I’m not comatose in bed. And while I haven’t come up with a “challenge” list to top Thol’s Goals for 2015, I have established something equally crazy which I dub “The Checklist.”
Do not confuse that with Teh Czeqqcklysst, which is something completely different.
The Checklist evolved from the first goal I had for the year, which was simply to get wings for everybody. Then I thought about how I’m notorious for TRing folks before they’re ready, and this time I was going to make sure they had an Ioun Stone before I TR’ed them.
Then that became an Ioun Stone and Green Steel. Then Temple crafting was added on. Then… you get the idea, until it grew into its current (psycho) iteration.
The idea is to ensure that every “regularly played” (i.e. not silly toons, such as Smishy the Unfluffed which followers of @TholgrinDDO on Twitter have been introduced to already) toon is not only prepared for the next life, but prepared, stacked, and 100% fully pimped out nerd-style.
I’ve done a bunch of work on it already, but as is clear, there’s still quite a bit of road to go. Several toons are already “Ready For Wings,” in that everything else is checked off except for having a past life, but they’re temporarily being pre-empted by Gorruk’s current side trip; I’ve made him take on a Cleric life (currently level 12) for the sole purpose of having the Healing Word past life feat, that he may use that and his Past Life Fast Healing (a.k.a. “regeneration”) to keep kickin’ around as a full-fighter without any blue bar whatsoever. Because that’s obviously a logical solution to being a full fighter with no blue bar, duh.
Sheesh, get with the program.
And since I don’t feel like typing a whole bunch of new content, here’s some pictures and captions of recent shenanigans in no particular order. I’m lying, since I posted them as I scrolled backwards, so they’re in reverse chronological order. As if you cared.
And that’s all the photos I feel like posting for now! The meds are starting to kick in, and I feel the need to go put peanut butter on a graham cracker and eat it. And if you haven’t tried it, yes, it’s bloody delicious. Go do it. Now!
Get to the choppah! The choppah of graham crackers!
I was going to put some stuff about the medical condition here, but apparently WordPress doesn’t want me to, because it’s wiped it twice. So pfft. I might type it up later, but at the moment I’m feeling more of the “sod it” variety. Happy Saturday!
