Hello, I’m Paul.
Like , Star Wars, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, History, Cthulhu mythos, and other stuff.
I’m nonbinary and generally grumpy.

After some advice regarding jobs.

My partner is , she is seeking a diagnostic for . She recently started a new job, but now is worrying about burnout.

At the moment she is really enjoying it, got caught up in what she is working on and worked over her hours etc. but isn’t sure how long it will last.

What advice can you give her?

How do you cope with work and remaining focused on it or not burning out with it?

Thank you.

This is Alan. Alan ended his own life on 7th June 1954. He laced an apple with cyanide and ate a bite from it. He did this because the British government chemically castrated, humiliated and prosecuted him for being gay.

Alan is the reason why a chunk is bitten out of the Apple logo…in honour of Alan Turing.

Ok so what did he do? He invented computer science and using his first designs he decrypted the Enigma code - the machine base encryption that the Nazis and the German military used to communicate secret commands to each other in world war 2 - and hence he both saved millions of lives and brought us into the modern age of computing.

Pride month isn’t just about dancing on floats in gold hot pants or flying a rainbow flag. It’s about remembering that everyone has a right to be happy, love who they want to love, and recognise the outstanding contribution that everyone can make in a society free of fear or prejudice.

Feels like it has been a long day. Lots of people talking at me. Sat alone in the lounge listening to to unwind.

If you're in the UK, one tiny thing you can do about #RoevWade today is to sign this open letter to Foreign Secretary Liz Truss:

The characters are members of the local roleplaying group, and they end up getting involved in the mysteries that happen.

Thinking about picking up an old idea, and running with a homebrewed loop in North Wales. The hydro—electrical plant at Llanberis was built to power the loop.

My aunt posed a joke the was transphobic and homophobic on farcebook. I pointed out to her it was both of those things, she immediately apologised and removed it, with no argument or excuses. I apologised for swearing at her. It was very civilised.

Spent the day with my dad, demolishing and rebuilding half of the garage roof. I am now in some pain and am knackered. We are going to do the other half tomorrow!

Played our first face to face since before the pandemic today! It eas nice, really missed face to face games.

Watched the first 2 episodes of , I enjoyed them, look forwards to the rest.

Making plans to go out tonight around 9pm to go to the local petrol station to put diesel in the car for tomorrow, just so I will not have to face a petrol station on a Saturday morning.

Anybody want to spend $600 a pop on some life sized kobolds? Because we now have them at the shop I work at. I have to say they look really good close up and in person.

When our game does get underway again, I’m using a slightly modified version of . Don’t have many creature stats for SW, but have bestiaries from other systems. Think I managed to put together a quick system for simple conversions. Need to try them out against the players.

Sadly didn’t get to roleplay yesterday as one of my players disappeared. Later we found out she is having mental health problems. Trying to work out what we can do to help.

I wonder if we will get to roleplay on Saturday? As a group, we haven’t played since the beginning of March.

We are not going on holiday in May for OH’s birthday, due to shortage of money, apart from the pandemic years, this will be the first time we haven’t. Shame as we often spend it in Wales. We are off to fondle an armadillo on her birthday though.
