Finally got a doctor to see my grandmother (through threats of litigation, sadly that's what it took) for a CT scan today. On the way home they called us and said to go to the ER immediately because she has a pulmonary embolism. Searing from both heat and rage in my car right now because they won't let me in with her, terrible, terrible day.
That feeling when you found a dead guy's coin collection being sold at an estate sale and after the fact you are torn by the feeling of outright stealing from them because the people obviously had no idea what what they were selling was worth, that just gets worse when you get home and realize some of the coins were worth a lot more than you thought they were at the time even.
My state just joined the thou must wear masks club...funny because masking yourself is also currently a misdemeanor crime. I know they've declared they aren't enforcing that, still, seems that you should really remove the law making something illegal before passing a mandate making it illegal not to do just that thing. This is why our judicial system is such a bloated mess.
The youtube algorithm introduces me to the weirdest stuff these days. Last week I got bardcore music (which is awesome by the way), this week it is gun metal covers. Stupid as it is, I can't stop listening either. Who thinks to do this, and why is it so euphoric to watch?
The sinking feeling when you realize your grandmother probably isn't long for this world, and the frustration when you know that this pandemic will take her away...not because she has Covid, but because no doctor is willing to see a patient to even run simple diagnostics anymore if one of her symptoms happens to be a recurring fever, even if her primary care physician gives her the test and it comes back negative.
Man. A historic 130 year old church nearby had all of its windows broken out with bricks last night. Such a shame, it wasn't generic stained glass patterns either but had beautifully crafted murals depicting various parts of the gospels.
I finally gave in and checked out TLOU2 spoilers...and just dang. I thought DA:I, Andrameda and the death of Bioware was bad. Why are all of the industry greats when it comes to storytelling being picked off and destroyed from the inside? Who's really left now besides CD projeckt red maybe, arguably, when it comes to narrative focuses in gaming now that's still competent?
Yesterday someone tried to use my debit account to go on a spending spree at some mall in Ohio. Joke is on them though since I'm paranoid and never keep a penny more than 250 dollars in that account except right before I go buy something that costs more than that.
Today I learned that George Washington was not the first president of my country, and that there were technically over a dozen presidents before him. My own ignorance astounds me, I mean it always does but the sheer scope of this revelation astounds me. I guess George Santayana really was quite astute when he said:
My elderly neighbor whom I've been buying groceries for just got carried out of his home on a stretcher by guys with hazmat suits. Considering I've been his only point of contact for the past month it's probably safe to say my boss was right to tell me to stay home once I developed a mild cough after all.
I'm sure this question's been asked before, but I can't find an answer: is there any way to run the Steam version of RPGMaker *without* being logged into Steam? It's a frustrating extra step sometimes.
Small Update for myself:
>Two Dungeon maps are done, Dungeon 3 is in progress. Dungeon 4 needs work.
>4 characters set up out of a possible 6 but those come later.
>Hub area needs work.
>Game completion..., 20-25% maybe?
