Kero Magic Whupass

Change of Scene!

Man, who'da thunk going into the office would actually make me happy?

I've been in a pretty pervasive funk for the past week-and-a-half or so; I've managed to temporarily raise out of it with application of concentrated dance music or MST3K, but then as soon as the salve goes away, the funk returns. Additional symptoms have included difficulty sleeping, asthmatic flareups, bitching about website stupidities, and pointless arguments on the internet. None of which make for a happy Gneech.

This morning started out looking like more of the same, after awakening at 4:00 a.m. and tossing and turning until 6:30, at which point I fell into a deep, restful sleep because it was time to get out of bed.

But somehow, somewhere between 9:00 and 10:00, my mood picked up, apparently on its own. Being out of the house for the first serious time since the Attack of the Killer Snow started, bright sunshine, and even getting SJ set up to accept banner ads all seem to be factors.

Whatever it is, I'll take it! I don't like being Grumpy Depressive Gneech, and I'm pretty sure the people around me don't like it either (with the possible exception of Vince, who is a bit of a weirdboy ;P ). If I can figure out some way to sustain it until tonight, I will have the beginnings of an awesome and productive weekend in place.

So ... how to sustain the awesome? That's the question!

I Dunno, Maybe I'm Nuts

I waffle about gaming too much. :P In particular, thinking about D&D, I keep thinking "I dunno, maybe I oughta suck it up and just switch to 4E." Then I look at some 4E stuff and my hackles raise.

I don't really want to try to homebrew a 10-20 level game with a creaky set of E-Tools, when the 4E monster builder is actually so much easier to use. But by Crom, I really hate what they did to player classes.

No good solution! Dangnabbit.
