This is monotonous for me, too, believe me.

Shuffling zombie today because the antibiotics are knocking me out.  Or it may be the lack of sleep, because I got very little last night and not very much this afternoon.  I am getting better, but this is not fun.  I foresee much more in the way of exercise when I feel a little better; this is getting ridiculous.

…So the eardrum didn’t exactly *explode*.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to get any more graphic than that.  Suffice it to say that I am back from the doctor, and on a regimen of antibiotics, eye drops, and the allergy medication that you have to get from behind the counter.  Hopefully they’ll all start to do their magical work in the next day or so.

Oh, and no more Robitussin for me. Was apparently making it all worse. Fair enough.

I should just take a couple of days off.

I’m feeling better, but I’m still feverish — and now my youngest has an earache.  Having eliminated the usual cancer/pregnancy* diagnoses from the Internet, it still looks like my kids are going to have a miserable couple of days.  And I’m kind of tired.

*Everything is a symptom of pregnancy. We discovered that during my wife’s first one. Seriously, check it out on the Internet sometime.

My wife has informed me that I am running a fever…

…and I believe that the subtext there was So go to bed, you idjit.  Or maybe it’s my subtext. Certainly at the moment I can’t think of a single interesting thing to say.

Moe Lane

PS: Yes, if this keeps up I may have to go to the doctor’s.  I figured that one out already. We’ll see after a proper night’s sleep.

As I said yesterday: thankfully, not yet noise.

I would love for this cold to be over…

…especially since the bus came for both the kids today! And there’s no appliance guy scheduled for tomorrow! And it was great out this weekend! …And I have pretty much a summer cold now.

Blegh. Well, at least it’ll be nice again on Thursday and Friday. That’s something.

Item Seed: Molotok.

Molotok – Google Docs

Molotok

This aluminum and glass gavel was constructed in 1862 by the House of Faberge at the behest of Czar Alexander II.  As far as anybody can tell, Molotok was not imbued with any sort of supernatural or esoteric power; it was meant as a highly expensive gimcrack commemorating the Czar’s program of judicial reform, and it largely languished in obscurity for the next sixty years. It certainly did not have a True Name until the Russian Revolution.

However, Molotok did start generating significant occult power (and its Name) during the Bolshevik takeover, starting with the judge who used it to pulverize a Communist assassination squad sent to purge him and his family.  That judge went on to wield Molotok throughout the entire Russian Civil War, to admittedly great personal effect (use of it eventually got himself and his family out of Vladivostok and into Japan, back in 1922); but its ability to do tremendous amounts of kinetic damage to Communist-aligned villains could not turn the course of the war. Molotok is strictly a tactical weapon.

The Surprisingly Interesting ‘Wonder Park’ trailer.

Wonder Park kind of has a video game vibe to it.

As in, OK, here’s a broken down magical amusement park. You have to get it up and running again, using found items and resource management. Here are some animal companion NPCs, each of whom has a special ability and who will eventually be in charge of something.  Get going!

…Look, I play Fallout 4 and Conan Exiles. I’m all about building the best danged dollhouse in the world.  Really and truly, I am.  So maybe this won’t suck.

Written and directed by Patrick Graham (“Phir Se”,) and starring Radhika Apte (“Padman”) and Manav Kaul (“Tumhari Sulu”,) “Ghoul” is a co-production between Blumhouse Productions, Ivanhoe Pictures and India’s Phantom Films.

The “Delta Green: the Labyrinth” Kickstarter is live.

Finally. And I’ve already signed up for the Kickstarter, of course. Having John Tynes write Delta Green: The Labyrinth is something that I can really get behind.
