What Am I Thinking..?

Another week has passed and the stabilizing continues... It would be easier if it were not the holidays, but one cannot always get what one wants...

Mood-wise, I'm still kind of meh. The games have been going "o-kay". The last Champions session didn't run due to inclement weather, and the last session of Tai'eres was down a player. Coincidentally, it was the player for whom the game was originally set-up. A few days after, this player drops from the game to run another a game himself, something which he expressly told me was the reason for begging anyone to run a game he could play in. At first I wanted to throat-punch him, but having been a LONG-TIME GM, I sort of understood. When the bug bites you with a game idea, it's hard to shake. On the plus side, he did find me another player to take his place. So... table-flipping rage averted by maturity and reciprocation. Who knew that could happen, hmmm?

As things go, life is not too terribly bad. They could be worse, honestly. General pressures aside, I am discovering I kvetch far too much, and am being productive far too little. I should change that. There were routines I followed that I have fallen out of. Good habits which kept me focused and directed that I have let drop by the wayside, and thus my behavior has been affected in negative ways. This blog is a good example of that. I used to write here once a day almost religiously. Now, it's lucky if it gets updated once a week.

Sounds like it's time for New Year's resolutions, except I've never been too terribly keen on those. So, I believe I am going to step back... adjust some things in my life... get back to where I once was. I realize I have been saying this a great deal lately. Time to own up, own it, and turn words into action...

  1. Trying to, SinSynn... Trying to...

    Certain game distributors don't make it easy when orders I place don't get processed in a timely manner, and then they have server issues with their ordering system that cause further delays that they failed to let me know about...

    1. So what you're saying is yer current issues are NOT Loquacious related?
      I kid, I kid.

      I tend to get all serious and whatnot when it comes to business, so I'm sure I'd be tied in knots over some third party not upholding their end o' the deal. I'm sure they've got no problem cashing yer checks, after all.
      It's prolly a good thing I don't own/run any kind of business. My head would likely 'splode the very first day.
      Stoopid...distributors...grumble, grumble....

      Viya con dios, my brother. Hugz to da fam.

  2. Grrrrrrr, distributors, I hates them, I do...but I loves them too, causes they brings da goodies, cept when dey don't, den I hates'em summore....grrr, can't win....gotta play for the draw, I guess.

    1. Yeah, but since dey got da goodies, dey also got da power, and dat ain't cool.
