Not Fun For Walking

My right heel's been stiff and aching since yesterday, and despite sleeping it off it doesn't seem to be getying better. I had to take a painkiller to be even able to put some weight on it, but even then the best thay I could do is walk with a very obvious limp. It gets … Continue reading Not Fun For Walking


Pain In The You-Know-Where

For those curious about what I was up to during the past few days, I've been stuck at home on bedrest. Why? Well the lower back pain I've experienced some two years ago came back, and with a vengeance.  I got rushed to the hospital from work, and had to spend most of the day … Continue reading Pain In The You-Know-Where

February Morning Shuffle

Y'know, I prepared a big thermos' worth of hot water this afternoon, just to be able to bath this morning. It still almost wasn't enough; even after pouring it into the pail of water sitting in the bath room, the most that it could do was make it slightly lukewarm instead of ice-cold.

Well, that and … Continue reading Just In Time, And Not A Moment Later

Event Clearance, And Finally Something New

So yeah, I pretty much spent the entire weekend trying to force-finish my way through the Kantai Collection Fall 2016 event. It's certainly been... an experience, for sure. Can't really say much about it right now, so I'll just have to do an image-dump on it. Oh, and our Japanese language class is back on track, … Continue reading Event Clearance, And Finally Something New

Not Exactly The Best Of Starts

The first shift we had after 2.0 training wasn't exactly the best. Not only did we not have any access to the new systems we trained for yet, about two hundred agents -- myself included -- lost all access to our remote systems for about two hours. In my case, it was a bit embarrassing too, … Continue reading Not Exactly The Best Of Starts
