seeing your loved ones starting to lose it is very hard. My Dad's mom had severe dementia at the end, it was torture for everyone to see her like that. My mom's fading due to cancer was very difficult. But the upside is that everyone was able to say goodbye to her.

sad day yesterday. wish people would wear seatbelts, kevlars, drive the speed limit, and realize humvees are not nascars.

I tried the demo for Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. Seems pretty cool. A game that is basically a tribute to 80s action movies? I may have to buy this.

I miss the 80s so much

Stepmom had surgery on her head. She took a fall off a bike about ten years ago, and a couple of months after that she started having fluid buildup in her head causing pressure on her brain.

That happened again, causing the confusion. I guess the problem can periodically reoccur once you have had it.

They opened her skull again to relieve the pressure. She's doing OK. Recovering.

I'm burnt out. So many days at work in a row without a day off is making me goofy.

And Fruit Ninja Kinect, Raving Rabbids, Mortal Kombat, and Dance Central on a movie screen with a hi-def projector, and a huge sound system.

D3's online gold economy just hit the crapper. Someone found a gold exploit in the Auction house.

DRM is just stupid. Online only DRM is stupider, never again will I buy a game with online DRM. TOR books removed it from all its media and has not had any increase in Pirating. In fact I know one author, David Weber, had a huge increase in sales when he offered up his First Honor Harrington novel "On Basilisk station" for free online.

Long weekend off coming up. Yay.

Today will be my last day working this stretch. I have only had one full day off since 4/20. Most of the days I have worked since then have been long and/or stressful. For example: today is easy, but I've been here since before 7:30 am, and will be here for another 3 or 4 hours.

Burn out doesn't begin to describe it...

Of course, it could have been worse: If it hadn't been for the marathon incident, I would have only had 2 full days off since 4/7.

Cooking up some rounds steaks on the grill, then lighting up the fire pit. Drinking might be involved later.

4 things I got today that I haven't had in months:

Sunshine
Fresh air
Exercise
Sleep

It's a start towards lifting this funk I've been progressively spiraling down into in for over a month now. Of course, one thing that I didn't get today that I also haven't had in months would help with that as well... but that would require the assistance and cooperation of a partner. A female partner.

Oh well... Maybe if I can keep the exercise regular enough and get my mood back up into the positive, and keep a bit of free time in my work schedule, then I might be just be able to make something like that happen again. Before I die, that is...
