City of Heroes

Dear Friends,

Lots of things are going on, but none of them are in the least interesting. I think maybe I'll use some variant on that sentence as the first line in my autobiography.

As usual, I am afflicted with a score of minor complaints. None of them are of consequence. Monday last I saw my neurologist who told me that I have a syrinx in my spinal cord (in the neck). It sounds more dire than it actually is. The doctors say there is naught to be done save an MRI every six or nine months. Just one more thing to worry about. I feel as though I'm falling to pieces. Because I am, of course. How do you exercise your neck in a non-destructive way?

I have been exploring with the new 'puter. I can do wonderful things. Television is much more enjoyable for me than it has been in a long time. I can see things that I have not been able to see in quite a while. I still have trouble with night time or generally dark scenes. <sigh>I'll never actually see the movie Underworld</sigh>

I am playing an online game called City of Heroes. It is very interesting; I'm finding it addictive. You define a super hero with powers and costume of your choice then ramble about battling evil doers. You have "contacts" within the game who send you on "missions". Only one of these has proven impossible for me. It is conducted underground and the cave walls look precisely like the cave openings to me. I can't navigate the place. Sigh

I am thinking of starting a "character diary" for my super hero character. I probably won't get around to it, but it is a neat idea.

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
