It’s been so long, I know…

I’m very pleased to hear about a new expansion for Twilight Imperium IV has just been announced: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2020/8/2/prophecy-of-kings/ which has me very interested in chasing it down once released.

Two Years On…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Dreams, Furbag, General, Health, House, Philosophy, Work

So here I am two years down the track after leaving my former full-time employer. It’s been a rough journey and it’s still not over. I suppose the positive of it is that I’m still here. I use “suppose” because there’s been times that I’ve been pretty unsure about that. I’ve definitely felt like there’s […]

I can’t say it was a great weekend of activity, although I did help a friend out with something that’s been holding her back from getting a lot of work done. It’s good to know you can help friends and receive the simple joy and satisfaction that comes with that and the recognise the appreciation […]

If I was to sum up the year that’s pretty much now past, I’d have to say it’s not been the best of years for me. That said, it’s certainly not been the worst of years, it would have had to be a total train wreck for me to think that of it. There have […]

Back Through the Archives…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Art, Film, House, Tech

Morning of sorting through Archives & Backups to determine what can be trashed. Watch a french movie called “Livide”, which was a pleasant change from the fairly slash happy, saw ‘em up type of Horror film we get these days almost all the time.

Hoarder…

Spent the day reorganising some cupboard space to clear a bit more off the floor. Since reorganising 6 months ago I’ve accumulated boxes on the floor and boardgames in piles everywhere. I’m looking forward to game night with Andrew (friend in Daylesford). We have a regular Thursday night gig, as much for helping him wind […]

Is Another Man’s Junk…

Boxing up old books & DVDs is the most productive thing I’ve done today.

One Man’s Treasures…

Cupboard tidy up looking for more stuff to jettison.

Breadcrumbs & Salt…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: General, Goals, Health, House, Winge, Work

Less than impressed today. Apparently my “overly generous” unemployment support has been reduced with a fine for “non compliance”, i.e. not logging onto an online course. Fine equals 10% of benefit. Hilarious.

Bailing the Leaky Liferaft…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: House

Pretty much nothing exciting, more desperate. I’m exploring a financial option that may, just may keep me going for while longer.

Pick up Sticks…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: House

Bit of a yard clean up as I have another yard load of branches down from trees with the wild winds we’ve been regularly having.

Livestock by the Catload…

It seems to be Lizard, Centipede, Moth and Mouse Season again. Between the two furbags I’m ending up with all sort’s of presents.

Brainstorming…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Goals, Health, House, Work

A day to gather my resources I guess. Brainstorming survival options.

Leaking Lifeboat…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Health, House, Humour, Work

Well any quick reprieve from this continuing downward trend in my capacity to stay emotionally afloat has been swiftly shot down with the email this morning advising that I was unsuccessful with the interview from last week. As I said to a couple of friends, I gave up trying to anticipate any interview results some […]

It’s been a fairly disheartening day. I watched my tax return of a bit over two thousand evaporate into paying bills that have been building up. It took less than five minutes to vanish and produce nothing except reaching ground zero from underneath. It seems the only advance we’ve made from the Eighteenth Century is […]

As best as I can tell the interview went well, but I’ve learned that I’m clearly not the best judge of such things these days, as you really can’t tell what’s going on behind the scenes. Often we are applying for jobs that are already decided for some internal candidate, and the business is just […]

Kicking up the Dust…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: General, Goals, House, Tech

It’s turned out to be still a bit too windy today for more Macro shooting, so I’ve been working on a Spring Clean. It’s amazing how much I still have in boxes that I could get rid of and not notice. Apparently I’m a bit of a hoarder. Unfortunately I can’t see any of it […]

I’ve had a bite to an application (work) I submitted earlier today, so hopefully something will come out of the “Assessment Session” on Thursday morning. More on that to follow I hope. Fingers crossed as the money factor is becoming Urgent! I’ve managed to limp past that 12 month benchmark I hoped I could last […]

Indecisive…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: House, Relationships

I hit the hay early last night, about 19:00 actually and slept twelve hours! The plan for today was going to be go to Geelong to catch up with some friends, but seems Stephen got called into work so I’ve discussed going next weekend instead. (Update) Plans changed again, decided I’ll still go down and […]

Caught Napping…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Depression, Health, House

This morning consisted of oversleeping and thus being woken up by my Uncle rapping on the door. Damn I’m not living that one down in a hurry! So this morning’s exercise was fixing a fence that had a tree fall on it as a result of some of this week’s weather. This afternoon was an […]

Well I’ve been very quiet online lately, but don’t take that for sitting in a bottomless pit of Depression. Take it more as a sign I’m busy. I’ve been working hard on consolidation regular work back into my lifestyle, as it’s easy to fall out of the habit when you’ve been off work for a […]

Moving into October already, it’s hard to know where all the year has gone. However, it’s winding to a close in much better space than it started. Clearly events seem to be unfolding as close to my intended plan as I could have hoped. A good 2 month break from work, and now some part-time […]

Behold Cthulhu Wars…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Games, House, Literature

Awesomeness is… This is a test play of the four player game to get the feel for it! Feel has an added dimension in this game because these pieces FEEL awesome! You feel the HUGENESS and otherworldliness of each of H.P. Lovecraft’s Ancient Ones.

So as it stands, the Furbags and I have spent most of the weekend around home and keeping warm. I took the opportunity to do a couple of things in the study I’ve been waiting for some “significant” reason to make the time to do. Rebuilt a lot of the virtual environments on VMware. I […]

“Enfant Terrible”…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Furbag, House, Humour

Clearly Chemoux is catching birds too. She brought one in at about 06:00 that was the size of a mouse. Just like her “aunt” she likes to show off the hunting skills but not hand over the prey. Still bloody dark! How do they do it?
