Some stuff

So, ever since that douchebacle with The Action Elite, I have just been lurking on occasion. It’s a good source of news and I still liked to read reviews and stuff there. I just wasn’t able to post or comment anymore, which was fine. But today, I go there, and all that loads up is a blank white screen with the words “You Are Banned.” at the top. Apparently the dick who runs the site has had some fancy IT stuff done to block my IP Address, or some such. What a loser.

Anyways, in other news, the plague is finally running its course in our house. After each of the rest of us went through it (with my son going so far as to get an ear infection), my wife has finally come down with it as of yesterday. She had to stay home from our make-up session of D&D yesterday, and is working through it like a champ today (both the smaller kids are home with her all day).

Speaking of the little ones, not only did Connor get an ear infection, but Sydney had to have an emergency appendectomy last week! Yeah, she started complaining about abdominal pains on Tuesday. With her being a 10-year old with a penchant for crying wolf, we didn’t think very seriously of it. But her father, having had his appendix removed when he was a kid, took note of the location of the pain when she complained at his house on Wednesday, and took her to the hospital. Long story short, it was inflamed to twice the normal size. She went through the procedure fine, and is on her last day of recovery today.

Scary stuff, man.

I wish I could talk more about my writing, but just about all that my keyboard does these days is compose stuff for school. I have narrowed my research paper to talking about the influence of the Vikings on European and Asian cultures, so I will be starting to pound that out soon. I have another essay due in a couple of weeks, so I’ll be starting that probably tonight. And the discussion boards are constantly calling.

However, I have been looking at all the stuff on my flash drive, and have been picking at a few things lately. I have about five works that are each roughly half done, give or take, with the remainder of each planned out. Now I just need to knuckle down and do it. Maybe now that my house is nearly illness-free, I can do that.

You know, once I dislodge myself from the Xbox and from DCUOnline again…

I'm glad Sydney's appendix didn't rupture. I went through that when I was a kid, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Wow, a bit over the top of them. My wife really dislikes JCVD. I can take him or leave him. I've liked him in some things.
