COVID Chronicles

Posted July 30th, 2020 at 12:51 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
When this whole COVID pandemic started I was just like everybody else. Didnít know much. Then the lockdowns started. Where I work most people were told to stay home and were laid off. I got the flu one day and it freaked everyone out. Then they shut down my work place completely.

I didnít mind staying home. I decided to sell my house, so I began fixing it up and cleaning it out. In the beginning getting wood for repairs and new flooring and ceilings was a hassle- waiting in line to go in the store, socially distanced. Then the store was shut down. It was an inconvenience but I didnít let it slow me down.

I still walked every morning, but now the streets of this city were deserted. On an hour long walk I might only see two people and a handful of cars. And I thought I finally have enough room. Iím not a real social person. I donít like crowds or bars. I like privacy and space. And I finally had it. If someone was walking near me weíd both move further away....

Wagguan?

Posted March 16th, 2019 at 02:24 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I wish I could say the world was an older and wiser place. Itís certainly older, but not much wiser. Or maybe itís just me?

Thanks for your greeting, Kowalski. My tribe are doing well. I do read things on this site weekly at least, but I donít seem to have so much to say anymore. At some point one gets tired of oneís own thoughts and musings.

Three of my children are 18+. One is married. They have jobs and are finding their way in the world. They have begun to scatter, like baby spiders riding the wind with their little cobweb parachutes.

I have a 12 year old still at home, who has been brainwashed by fortnite. Heíll play Scape, but he doesnít like to make decisions and lose. He likes shaking dice. Weíve tried playing 2V2 games- both of us on one side versus both of us on the other side, but heís not really into it. He plays fortnite with all his friends and school mates so itís a very social thing for him.

Break In

Posted March 23rd, 2018 at 12:46 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
It seems these three things set the stage for the robbery:

1) I had just baked banana muffins

2) I had been gluing figures and left them to dry on the dryer in the laundry room beside the window

3) It looked like no one was home even in the middle of the day

Now letís examine these issues one at a time.

Baking
I used to bake a lot and am known for my baking skills. (yes, itís a skill set; if you donít believe it, thatís because youíve never tasted anything that was made by a real baker)

When my kids were smaller I baked twice a week: cookies, cakes, muffins. But then Iíd leave to go to work and when I came back half to three-quarters of the baked goods would be missing. Iíd question the kids and they promised that none of them had eaten anything. So it was obvious that someone was breaking in and taking the cookies. Shocking, but it must be true because my children wouldnít lie.

Dispatch From A Long War

Posted March 15th, 2018 at 01:10 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
We have been playing the same Scape game for more than a year now. It's a variant on our ďbig gameĒ idea and obviously itís the biggest game yet.

Our starting map was huge and unexplored. Factions had to explore squares and were likely to find outposts or bandits or ruins. If you found an outpost the 20d determined which faction it belonged to. We have almost 30 factions in this game. The diplomacy is so complicated we have southern gnolls fighting against a northern alliance which also contains gnolls.


our big game tracking board 3' X 3'

A lot of the battles are unequal points. Last night we had a huge fight that had been building for weeks.

The south western alliance is led by the Kingdom of Arc, with their allies Jandar, Vydar and Magmar. They had slowly been invading the Primadon/Lizardmen alliance. Before last night...

Two Art Shows

Posted March 9th, 2018 at 12:31 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I recently went to an art gallery, something I do every once in a while. I like it because itís quiet and I get to walk around and experience the art at my own speed- if itís awful I move through quickly , if itís good I can take as much time as I want.

Also, unlike the movies or theatre when youíre walking around in an art gallery you can look at the other people who are there and see how they feel about it. Sometimes theyíre talking about the art and you get to hear multiple view points about it. If you bring a friend you can discuss.

A lot of people donít seem to like art galleries. They find them boring and they donít get the art and therefore they think that they themselves are stupid or uncultured or something. Let me assure you if you donít get the art itís because the art is crappy. Itís all about how it makes you feel and anyone who tells you otherwise is full of bad art.

There were two art shows in this gallery at the same...
