Blogging Via Dial-Up Sucks

On the other hand, finally being able to walk 4 miles without a cane is most gratifying.


I still can't  run or jump, but I'm now going to out-patient Physical Therapy and have access to special equipment so I can work on that.

Furthermore, I walked past the school and blundered upon a gun store on the side of the road 2 miles distant and discovered 9mm ammunition for less than 50 cents a round. Walking back carrying the unexpected prize was harder, but it was satisfying.

Yeah, I know, but it was pretty canonical before the...'downgrade".

Side Effects Update.

As mentioned a few posts back, yesterday morning I got my second restraining order against Coronachan.


I think I now have every non-respiratory flu symptom. 

I misspelled 3 words in the previous sentence. 

I have not, thrown up yet, but I foresee it in the near future. 

It's 03:30 and I cannot sleep. 

Hololive should not be watched while running a fever.

Just a brief rundown of various IRL issues. As usual at such times, the picture is unrelated and the banality is below the fold .

My Baby Sister Just Had a Heart Attack

She's 40 and has 2 kids. 


I've let work know I'm going down to look after the children. 

UPDATE: Well she's been released on her own recognizance and has a series of stress tests and such today and tomorrow.  I called work while at the gas station and told them I can come in but they said that staffing was fine and I was already listed as off for the day. My FMLA application is obviously on hold. I'll know more tomorrow.

On the Wisdom of Grip Safeties

So, one of the trees in the front yard had grown to where it was in the same time and space as my roof. 


This was not readily apparent from the ground. However, during the weekend windstorm, I heard it dragging against the roof and after closer inspection realized what was going on. 

So I borrowed a polesaw from my brother-in law, got on the ladder, and, after determining both that I wasn't underneath or in the swinging path of the branch, and that said branch would not damage my roof or my car, I started chewing away at it. The polesaw is like a chainsaw greave, and as I cut away at the first, and then second branches, I could not help but imagine how awesome this would be as a polearm in a minimally realistic martial arts film.  

At this point in the process, the tree decided that it had had enough and that physics did not apply to it and the branch fell, not directly down, not to the side that I was cutting on, but, as near as I can tell twisted the cut out towards me, swung towards me  and swatted me off the ladder. The polesaw made a long arc through the sky before deciding on the ballistic trajectory that would place it on me. I caught a gimps of it just before it impacted. My heart skipped a beat and I now have a much greater appreciation for the final moments of Elric of Melniboné. However,  because I was not holding the grip safety, it was not running, thus I was not disemboweled; escaping with some scrapes bruises and a coating of sawdust and dirt. 

Nothing of value was lost.

Oh.

You can get it on Amazon



The last time I tried to get a Japanese beverage off Amazon it was 212 dollars a bottle.  


I demurred.

Wait. There's a TAG for That?

Someone sent this J-List link to me saying, "I found that game you got that cute snake girl from!" 


Uhh? What? 
Oh. 
Actually, I've never played the game and got the image from Danbooro, which was how I was able to credit the artist when I used Hygieia the cute snekgrrl as a reaction image or something....years ago.

But that's not important now. We live in a world where there's actually a category for Tsundere Lamias. I don't know how to think about that.

Various Things

Do I stop and film the many many clusters of many police cars with their blinky lights on, or speed away?


I've consistently chosen "B".

Last night was the first night since Thursday that I haven't heard prolonged gunfire, including automatic gunfire, near my house so that's a plus. 


Internet's been better today though.

I was on vacation this month, but I'm only taking today and tomorrow, because we're working basically double shifts and are shorthanded at work. 

Here, have a sack of cute:



Cheer up. This too will pass.  And there's now a dinosaur on the space station
