Weekly Weigh-In

281.2, exactly what it was last week. In a bit of a plateau at the moment, hoping to get more regular exercise to get the engine running again.

Three Good Things

As I mentioned (last week, I guess it was?) my mood has been all over the place lately, but more down than up, so I think it would be a good time to go back to the Three Good Things exercise.

Three Good Things For Today


  • Received some funny comments on today's comic. :)

  • Got the classes written up for my Ghostbusters 5E conversion. They are Brains, Brawn, Guts, and Mouth. This amuses me.

  • InkyGirl was very adorable today, as was Buddha.


Three Goals For Tomorrow


  • Pencil two SJ pages.

  • Grocery store/dishes/laundry.

  • Get in some pony time.


Gnite world, and have an awesome tomorrow.

Ghostbusters as D&D Characters

I'm kludging up a 5E system bash to migrate my Ghostbusters game over to, since we keep forgetting the rules in Savage Worlds and 5E is rules-light enough that it will work well. But that led me to mentally map the Ghostbusters to their D&D archetypal equivalents. Whattya think of...

  • Peter Venkman: Half-elf Bard. Cutting remarks one minute, rousing speeches that inspire the team the next, jack of all trades but master of none. Not exactly the brains of the outfit, but the one they all look to when action is needed. Doubles as a rogue when required.

  • Ray Stantz: Halfling Cleric. The affable team player who's always got your back and is ready with a comforting word. Has lots of ranks in Religion and can figure out what's going on, if not what to do about it. Ironically, Wisdom is his dump stat but luck and lovability pull him through.

  • Egon Spengler: Elf Wizard. Pretty obvious.

  • Winston Zeddemore: Human Fighter. The dependable working joe who'll get the job done, but isn't the one being brilliant or showy.


I think it's a pretty good correlation, actually. :)

What's Up With You, Gneech???

It’s no secret that I have been dealing with dysthymia since childhood; the same way some people have a bad back or a trick knee, I have recurring low-grade depression. It’s further no secret that I have had a bad few years. I lost both parents, a favorite aunt, and literally half of my circle of closest friends, all since late 2010. Put shifting to self-employment, an extremely difficult short-sale of our house, and recurring worries about Laurie’s job situation on top of all of that, and I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that I’m still riding a psychological roller coaster.


Nevertheless, it continues to surprise me. My emotional center is completely broken and seems to be governed at the moment by a random number generator. I get ridiculously angry at nothing; when I find myself screaming at the top of my lungs at the phone to quit ringing all the goddamn time and physically restraining myself from throwing it across the room, I know I’ve entered the land of disproportionate response. But I also can’t seem to figure out anything to do about it.


My mood right now seems to have three basic settings, depending on my energy level. If my energy level is high, my mood is either edge-of-rage angry (bad day), or crazy manic productive (good day). If my energy level is low, my mood is lonesome, self-loathing, edge-of-tears despair (every day starting around 3:30 p.m.). There doesn’t seem to be “good day” version of low energy.


I am in counseling, and we have addressed this somewhat, but frankly I am such a basket case it’s taking a long time to get around to it. But if you have observed my behavior being erratic, this is why. Thanks for being patient. I am trying to broaden my emotional repertoire: I’d like to think “quietly productive and content” is an option and I just need to find the right buttons to push to get there.
