It's back to the daily grind. An extra day off was rather nice. And it's never a bad time to reflect on where the US was and how far we've come, but we still have so far to go. But, in the meantime, gaming. (hey, I don't like the site being political, so there). Seeing as it's Tuesday, the work week got a bit of a jump with that day off. So let's see if we can make this short week feel shorter by listening to gaming podcasts while we go about our daily routines.

Well, we're a day and change into 2018. I hope yours is going well. I've already managed to stub my toe so bad that I lost a toenail and whanged my elbow good enough that my left hand's still a bit tingly. So, needless to say, I'm off to a great start. At this rate, I expect to be in a full body cast by March. O,o
