- Last week I wrote a bit about wanting to restart my long-running D&D campaign, The Sellswords of Luskan. Well, I actually took steps to do it. The "new" game is called Revenge of the Sellswords of Luskan, and it's being hosted on the Myth-Weavers forum, which is where I personally go to play D&D Play-by-Post (PbP). I've got four of five of my original Players back, but we haven't actually started the game yet because...
- I spent the last month writing a novella for my kids as one of their Christmas presents. What's cool about that is that because I had a concrete deadline, i.e. Christmas, I had to really buckle down and work, forcing myself to stay exclusively on this one thing. The good thing about that is that I actually managed to finish the rough draft on Christmas Eve morning, and then I finished my first re-write yesterday. So I'm actually done! But I would like to find a good test-reader or two, so if you're interested in that, let me know.
- My wife gave me a Phiten Tornado Titanium Necklace yesterday. It's supposed to help redirect your body's energy, enhancing sleep, helping you recover after exercise, and just generally giving you more energy. Personally, I can't imagine how that's possible, but I've been wearing the thing for about the last eighteen hours, and I do feel terrific. Maybe the thing acts as some kind of half-assed Faraday Cage? I can't think of another way it might actually affect your body--and for that matter, even if it does act as a Faraday cage, I don't know exactly how that would help--but then again, I'm not much on all of this new age medicine crap, either.

- Triathlon.About.Com published a couple more of my articles this week:
- Finally, wow, what a difference running in the cold makes. I went out for a run with Sally this morning in thirty-degree weather, and for once she was the one struggling, and I was the one feeling great. That said, if you followed the link there, you know that I use MapMyRun.Com all the time to track my runs, and that's fine, but the app on my iPhone is only about 85% to 90% accurate. Which is another way of saying that it's 10% to 15% inaccurate, and that's really annoying, especially on longer runs. It seems to work a little better when I give it a few seconds to start up before I actually start running. And then too, it's way better than nothing, but still. I often find myself wonder exactly how far I ran at the end of a workout, and that's even with the pedometer in use.
And that's all I've got for today. Have a great weekend!
