We've been to the neurologist. MRI is scheduled. He says go back to normal life, with changes of taking medicine, more and regular sleep, better hydration, and being careful with alcohol (and NOT to skip meds when consuming it). No driving, but this is normal for us.

One look at this unidentified octopus and you'll agree with the name researcher Stephanie Bush plans to bestow on this species.

I do love meticulous planning. Well done, Darths and Droids! http://drcpunk.livejournal.com/284077.html

Back from Maelstrom, pondering the nitty gritty of Monsterhearts -- what to avoid as MC and why, what to do and why, how to be a good player, how to choose moves that will come up in play and work rather than sit unused on the paper, how to make sure xp and advancement happen, and so forth. Also pondering advice I was given about describing fights when playing not just World Wide Wrestling but also other games, how to make the convention even more fun, and why the heck I had trouble sleeping through the night in the hotel bed, although the humidifier did help. Also, the newer Chinese place across the street has excellent crispy duck rolls.

They don't necessarily do that in a literal way, unless you take the appropriate move (and I suspect you can rechrome it so no sucking is involved). And they're good at manipulation, turning people on, shutting people down, and holding steady.

Pondering what games to bring to Metatopia. Monsterhearts kit, obviously. Heroine. Pondering what else -- by which I mean what else in hard copy. I have, fr'ex, a gajillion Fiasco playsets, but I can bring those electronically.

And I can't seem to keep Penn Station and Port Authority separate in my mind, despite being a lifelong NewYawker.

That is odd.

We do still hope to make Consonance, but obviously, we're taking things day by day.

Sigh. Got paper and pen because I couldn't figure out how to edit contacts in new Google interface. (I know to click on the pencil, but couldn't find anything clickable to actually add a friend's mobile number.)

This isn't just a Google thing, but I am growing to hate "Hey, we've just changed the user interface you've learned, oh, and by the way, if you Really Insist, you might be able to use the old one for a Little longer, but you know, we don't actually work for you, we just kind of own you."

One of these days I will actually create a full paper and pen address book, as I keep meaning to do. I'll still use the online one, but I really do want hard back up of some things.

Mental institutions have been a favorite tool for exercising tyrannical power for a long time. They provide a cover of "helping" the target and a way to bypass whatever shreds of protection the legal system might offer. Thanks for letting us know about this.
