Gift Books from Somebody

GIMP books gifted to me. From who? Dunno.

This is the kind of craziness that comes from bipolar disorder, not from having hectic days, and the craziness started on Wednesday.

I took my night meds and went to bed. Then I spent the next 3-4 hours babbling D&D plans. Needless to say, I was no longer tired enough to sleep. So I pulled myself out of bed and worked on the D&D plans.

Wednesday, I’ll have you know, is also the day I was to go paint minis with Kit, then spend a couple of hours playing MTG with some friends. All of which I did. But boy was I tired after that.

And what do I do when I get home? I fire up the computer to read incomplete wips instead of going to bed. I think I finally made it to bed around midnight.

Thursday I was up bright and early. I’m counting it, even though I didn’t actually get out of bed until near 10:00, because I laid awake after that initial phone call from Mom. She brought over a window AC unit for me, and we installed it in one of my bedroom windows.

So today was D&D day with my long-time gaming friends and Greg. Today because I was supposed to go grocery shopping Saturday, but those plans fell through after I changed D&D’s date, so I just left it. I think I did better in some ways with the DMing, and in other ways worse. Overall, though, I think it was a fun session for us all, and that’s really what counts most. Phil asked what we should do for next month, and I said MTG since we did Vampires last month. He agreed to that and invited Greg to both the other games, and I think Greg’s going to go for ’em both. I know he’s interested in doing MTG, and he seemed interested to do Vampires too.

Because I expected to meet someone who’s buying my one Nook from me after gaming, I moved with Greg into the main part of the store after gaming. That person had apparently come earlier, mistaking the time we’d agreed to meet. So, for a while, I sat with Greg and went over a method I hope helps him with his MTG playing a little more. I basically wrote out the steps I go through when playing and did a couple of examples for him, then went through the steps with him a few times to ensure he understood the process. He said he’d been having trouble with it all and that my step-by-step format helped him work through it easier, and that makes me happy. I’m glad I could help him with it.

He was kind enough to help me cart some of my D&D stuff to and from Oasis, and on the way in, I checked my snail mail box as I like to do on days when I’ve been out. Found a package box key in my mailbox. Now, I hadn’t ordered anything delivered, so I thought the mail carrier may have misread the name or address or something on the package, but I found two packages in the package box with my pen first name and legal last name and the correct address. Brought them up, then visited with Greg for a while before he had to go—but as soon as he was gone, I opened those suckers.

Someone sent me those GIMP books in the pic above! I think I know who, but I’m not sure. I’ll definitely be asking them, though. LOL

And now I’m going to go to bed early and sleep until I wake up naturally. I am pooped.
