• Is anyone NOT playing Pokemon Go?

    I am utterly amazed at the phenomenon Pokemon Go has become. In less than a week, Nintendo has changed the world.

    I’m on my lunch break at work sitting outside, and I swear every second or third person I see walking by here in Bangor is playing. Doesn’t help that the park across the street is a gym. I’ve never seen such a sheer amount of people playing a game before. It’s pretty amazing.

    Nintendo has managed to get people of all ages to get up and walk more simply to catch Pokemon! It’ll be interesting to see how long this lasts.

    I do agree with my brother tho, i wanna know when we’re gonna get an augmented reality game that lets you find the Dragon Balls 🙂


  • I’ve been lost.

    The unthinkable has come to pass.  I have purchased Civilization V.  I couldn’t help myself, the complete game with all content only cost me $12 on sale.  EVIL I TELL YOU!!!

    For those of you who don’t remember, Civilization games are HIGHLY addictive to me. I’ve been known to lose days playing them…  I had been toying with the idea of loading up Civilization IV lately, as I’ve been pretty excited watching all the videos for Civilization VI when it comes out this fall 🙂

    So if anyone wonders what happened to me, I’m most likely playing Civilization V.


  • Its official. I have the gout.

    So yesterday I spent the entire morning at the Emergency Room at Mayo Regional Hospital because of the pain in my foot.  Doctor took one look at it and said “Yep, you’ve got gout.”  I eventually got a shot of something to help with it, had some blood drawn, and got an x-ray taken.  Also got a prescription for an anti-inflammatory med to help it get better.

    Yesterday and today I pretty much spent off my feet with my foot elevated.  GOD it was boring.  I could barely hobble around the house, and trying to drive was just far too painful, all that moving of the right foot.  I did manage to get a handful of things done for TRC that I’d putting off for god knows how long.

    The swelling has finally started to go down and the pain is much more bearable.  Still not sure if I’m going to be able to pull my shoes on in the morning, so they might just have to deal with me in sandals at work tomorrow. We’ll see how swollen it still is come morning.
