Nov. 28, 21: Routine, Grocery Shopping, Oculus, Crashing, and Games



[Well, for the second night in a row the cat’s gotten me up at three in the morning. 🤬 Makes for a solid five hours of sleep lost in the last two nights alone. I was upset and growled about it and Wenche started her day off once she got up hours later by letting me know that she was upset with me! I suppose that’s fair enough, but it made me angry again, worse this time, having more or less forgotten about it. In addition to that, her carelessness with painting the wall has done damage to my piano, but I’m so exhausted from lack of sleep and being pissed off that I don’t even have the energy to be hurt by it. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m not thinking clearly, but I don’t see much of a way to repair it short of stripping the whole thing and redoing the finish. She dripped paint on both sides and then she did more damage scratching at it to get it off. I guess it is what it is, will simply have to accept it and move on…don’t really see a route to forgiveness on that one. 😢 To be honest, I don’t really feel like doing this post and I still have teaching and the whole rest of the day ahead of me…can feel my eyes rolling as I try and type this even now.]

Cat got me up this morning just shortly after three moaning and howling that he wanted to go out. 😡 Been running right about on the borderline with my sleep lately, but this definitely tipped me over the edge and I dragged wicked hard.

Did the usual morning routine and smoked way too many cigarettes before the Sun even thought about coming up. Bitcoin was still bottom bouncing, but we did see some nice recovery today! HIVE did test two dollars, but only on a wick, otherwise still looking strong. 💪

Got my post done and scheduled and then we headed into town to get our weekly grocery shopping done. Was pretty stressful driving in since the roads were super slushy and we ended up coming back via the highway, which was in much better shape.

Got the stuff put away and had a sandwich for lunch and it was only just approaching noon. Tried to fight my tiredness by playing some Oculus, and I did get the blood flowing pretty good playing Beat Saber and Pistol Whip. I tried to make some progress on Zombieland, but I kept dying in the same place and so got fed up.

At that point I really started to drag hard and I just couldn’t force myself to go out into the cold garage to try and push through it. I laid down and tried to get some sleep, and I did get a half an hour or so, but I felt just about as tired and groggy as before.

Got up and played the last level of I Expect You to Die 2 and that was about it for the day. 😢 Wenche made us pasta and meat sauce for dinner and we watched some tube. We watched a movie about a murder in a future where violence is impossible…pretty interesting concept, but it made for a kind of weird movie. Not to mention that they talked like fast talking gangsters from the 1920’s or something.

Anyway, played through my Splinterlands quest, threw in an extra load of laundry to clean the clothes I’ve been using to work in the garage that were all covered in oil and stuff since I didn’t want to risk washing them with the rest of the clothes, and then hit the sack. Despite being so tired, it was nearly ten o’clock before I got to sleep [only to be woken up again at three again tonight].

Only a couple more days left and I should get the Power Up Month badge again! Held on this long!!! 🥳🤩

Like I said yesterday, there’s no meaning to dShitty saying that my income is above three digits because there will be some excuse or excuses not to make good. Case in point:



I just don’t even have the energy to care about this. CryptoSuckmaster sucks.

Still just cranking out missions on Rising Star trying to get my level up enough to do the next mission. Seems like I bought another card, but I think that was yesterday.


In the evening I played my Splinterlands quest. I got Fire splinter for my quest, but I thought that might pose a bit more of a struggle than perhaps another splinter and I tried my luck. Didn’t come up Earth or Dragon, but Water’s not too bad.


I did get somewhat frustrated for a while in there, but I was able to finally get back into Diamond and finished my quest there. With only a little over a day left in the season, it’s time to just wait out the clock. My quest won’t reset until like twelve hours left, so I won’t have to necessarily miss a day.




Pretty good rewards today, got some more cards including a couple rare:


Vouchers are still sitting much lower than they were even just a couple days ago, so still hanging onto the one I have left for now. Otherwise, just been staking up my SPS drop…sounds like some are starting to get bored with hoarding DEC and SPS and are dumping out hard. Figured it would happen as more and more tokens are distributed.

Power up and Hive on!


Man I feel you on the fuzzy disobedience. This morning I came downstairs to see that the puppy had decided my little one’s favourite book was a chew toy. Not only did I have a mess to clean up, he is too much of an idiot to know why he was put in his crate, and there is going to be more frustration when she wakes up.

Ah it is what it is and a little gaming will put out that fire!


My heart goes out to you! I am dragging with the holiday and company and... and... and waking up in the middle of the night. Oh, wait! I have been going to bed in the middle of the night, so, I guess I was already awake and getting 4 hours of sleep. No Bueno.

The piano. Yikes. But, the good thing IS that it can be fixed. It will cost time or money, but, it is fixable. Unlike my crystal ornament that is from my grandfather, gone forever. I loved it and have pictures on it, but, he wouldn't want me to pine over it.

Cheer up! Life is too short and you are too nice to be mad. It is all going to feel better soon.


Getting woke up that early sucks. One has to force themselves to stay awake because for me, taken a nap means a disruptive sleep schedual.
