Update

part 1: fashion.

Last night, the belt I wear with my work pants broke. It has been getting worn, but I realised that I can put my finger through the hole that the buckle goes through. Since I was at work until 8:30 last night, this meant that shops were closed by the time I got back near home, leaving me beltless for today.

Since I had no belt, I wore suspenders to keep my pants up. I also added a grey vest over the standard black oxford shirt to cover up the suspenders and give me a pocket to keep my phone in. The pocket watch was a natural addition at that point. As was the grey silk brocade tie. I used my new skills and did a full windsor knot. I considered a fedora, but since I lack a good overcoat, the effect would have been wasted.

I need to go buy a new belt this weekend.

I'm not sure what to do about footwear - my combats have a big split in the leather, but I can't afford to replace or repair them right now.

part 2: medical.

A wheezy day today, despite the advair. I called off the planned gym experiment - I am concerned that if I have to leave classes gasping for air too often, they'll have to ban me from the gym. and that would upset me greatly.

part 3: gaming.

I've decided on running Nano-Victorian Futures and Sleepers at ACUS. The website has stymied my attempts to register games thus far. I have been mucking around the wiki adding more NVF character gneration examples and the skeleton of a section for Sleepers. I've got a plot seed for NVF that should grow into an actual plot before the con. Still not sure what Sleepers will be about plot-wise, but if all goes according to plan, I should just need to nudge the players a bit and sit back to watch the mayhem. I'm really hoping someone comes up with a Sleeper that is weirder than my sample ideas.

part 4: NOMs.

I really want chocolate right now. Instead, I have apples. I do not want apples.

Sorry to hear about the website problems. I trust that Edwin will be in touch with you today, but it may be this evening. Are you getting errors even when you aren't trying to clone last year's NVF game?

I only tried the clone version. I'll try a straight submission and see how that goes.

From what I recall, inhaled corticosteroids (I'm assuming that's what Advair is?) take a while of regular use to really become effective, kind of like with antidepressants and that sort of thing. I could be wrong, though, as it's been quite a while since my asthma was bad enough to need regular medication.

Yeah - meatgirl mentioned that it takes 2-3 weeks for them to build up. It's just that, after having a good day Wednesday, I was hoping Thursday would also be a good day.

That addresses the cold/water problem, but doesn't make them look classy again - my main worry right now is that my ripped boots look too punk for work. Or for a wedding under a kilt.

I'll ask my spouse how long it took for him for the Advair effects to really take hold. Take care of yourself!
