Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, and a Crappy Job

Posted May 20th, 2008 at 03:48 PM by Wind Lane
Insomnia is the inability to fall asleep when one wants to even when feeling tired.

Sleep Apnea is when the airway restricts breathing during sleep cutting off oxygen for a minimum of ten seconds straight. These events have to occur more than five times in an hour for it to be even mild sleep apnea.

Crappy Job is when you despise your work for any number of reasons. Typical reasons would be low pay, antagonistic co-workers or boss, and/or work that is unfulfilling.

I have moderate insomnia (if I'm tired enough I can get past it), severe sleep apnea (I averaged something around 85 events per hour - that's a minimum of 14 minutes per hour I just wasn't breathing), and a crappy job (the pay is fine, but the work is as stifling as it can be and my co-worker uses me as a punching bag to relieve her stress).

So, when I finally fall asleep, it's not very good sleep even with the machine that's supposed to help with my apnea and then I have...

I Has a Blog!

Posted May 19th, 2008 at 05:50 PM by NecroBlade
Apparently blogs belong to site supporters, which I is one of them. I don't really have any plans for regularly updating this thing, so you'll just have to deal with my random ramblings I suppose.

To begin - good news for the Florida crew! I spoke to Mark at Sci-Fi City earlier today and we are good to go on July 12th for the Summer in the Swamp tournament! There have also, according to one of my 'scaping friends, been some people playing Heroscape at Cool Stuff Games recently. If anyone knows who they are, or happens to see them there, please invite them to the tournament! Most helpful, I think, would be to tell them to sign up for Heroscapers.com and start posting in the thread.

Hmm, what else to post...

Again, we saw these guys at GenCon, but here they are in their confirmed and final state. A great little starting tag team for Aquilla.

Emerald City Game Day (05/17/08)

Posted May 19th, 2008 at 03:53 PM by aquaone
Sophia and I showed up late having spent more time than expected stuffing our faces with cheese. We were warmly greeted and put into a game. It was a 2 on 2 with Sophia and I playing against 2 teenage boys. I whiffed a couple attacks early, they managed to roll perfect with Minions of Utgar repeatedly taking Cyprien down in round 2. Sophia and I talked a lot about how she needed to move her units together... but she never did. She wasted most of her order markers on until that should not have moved or could not move anywhere meaningful. Raelin moved 1 hex, changing nothing, twice. ... I called the game at the end of round 3. It was a lost cause.

Of note is that while playing I was educated/corrected on rules multiple times by people half my age. It's both humorous and humbling to know that despite what I own and having played this for almost 2 years now, I don't seem to know the rules very well. I still don't get the rationale behind the rules but I've had them confirmed....

Time to stop procrastinating.

Yet another thing that I've been meaning to get done. Recently, I decided it was time to get off my butt and get some stuff I've been meaning to get done, done. One of those things is to start up my 'Scapers blog. Now that I've got it done, that is one thing off of my list.

Anyways, I can't just post in the blog without saying anything meaningful, otherwise I am just wasting space. Nor can it be something covered by a lot of other people otherwise it will still be a waste of space. So after looking through some of the other blogs, I have decided on 2 things my blog shall focus on:

1. The CoN: Though I don't know if I can call myself an expert on this, I do think I know a thing or two and could offer a few tips on how to play the game. As well, as far as I can tell, no one is covering anything like this.

2. Webcomics: I've read a number of webcomics over the time I have been using the internet, and currently have a "collection" of over 20...
