Jan. 30, 22: Routine, Grocery Shopping, Crashing, TV, and Games


[Well, holy cow! I’m “on call” for jury duty this week, but it turns out I wasn’t called today, so it’s a normal full day of teaching instead. Only just realized how late I am getting started on my post for today, so we’ll see how far I can get before I have to quit and get ready to go. Last day of Power Up Month is today, only one more opportunity to lose it and it’s mine! 💪]

Although I did sleep through until five, I went to bed unusually late last night, like nearly ten 😯 so I ended up a good two solid hours short on sleep. 😭 It didn’t take long to catch up to me, either, and I absolutely crashed out for those two hours in the afternoon.

Not a lot interesting going on during the morning routine. Just the usual and didn’t make any more moves either on Polygon or BeeSwap…just letting things settle in for a minute, but keeping an eye on everything. Spent quite a bit the last couple days on PIZZA and 1UP (and I do still kinda’ want to get some more 1UP, but not sure), so trying to cool it off before I blow through my entire stack. Did a little token shifting, but that was it. Dinked around over on Discord for a while, watched some YouTube, blah, blah, and then worked on my post.

One cool thing was that one of my Calculus students has been super proactive and arranged a study group at the library for Sundays. They were working it out in the Discord and made my heart sing…love it when students are studious. 🤓 I told them they’re free to use the voice channel in the Discord, but I think they set up a Zoom for people to attend who couldn’t be there or didn’t want to. Very cool. 😎

After I got the post done and shared, as is the norm on Sundays, we headed into town to do the grocery shopping. Not completely sure how we managed; guess we got some cat treats and quite a bit of meat, but we busted $150 without a problem again. 😱 I only just got used to not being able to get out of there for less than a hundred, seems like we can’t get out for less than $150 these days…I suppose that’s what happens when you hand everybody free money stimmy checks (not to mention supply chain disruptions). We’re not in as bad a shape as the northeast is (because of the storms), but we’re seeing some pretty bare shelves ourselves.

Got home, put stuff away, snagged my sandwich for lunch, and then laid down to watch some TV with the wifey. Like I said before, though, I didn’t last long and was out hard for a couple hours. Felt a bit groggy when I got up, but not too terrible, and Wenche made us pancakes for dinner.

We switched back over to Workaholics again and binged a bunch of that and I played a ton of Angry Birds Match trying to satisfy my thwarted desire to play Splinterlands.

I called in to the jury duty hotline thing that I’m required to call every night and found out that I was not called for tomorrow, so I sent out emails to my subs to let them know and then did some serious marching to finish out the more than four thousand steps I had left for the day. Kept the streak alive and got the groceries, but that was basically it for today.

As I’ve said in the past, I can’t wait for it to warm up again so I can putz on the car at least when my motivation is low…accomplishing those little tasks one by one helps to build the momentum. I did refrain from VR today, but filled the time with sleeping and other games instead, which doesn’t really help all that much…really, I think sitting down and getting chain I/O working on the website would be the thing that would make me feel the best getting done, but finding that focus has been tough.

[Look at that! Even with a bit of crunch I got my post done…not sure if it actually counts for a thousand words given all the metatext, but hey, not too bad considering I slept most of the day away yesterday. 😜]

At this point I’m clueless as to how dShitty maf works. Stated income is down to only four now, and there was a crisis, but somehow I got eight? Beats the heck outta’ me. 8/400 is slipping a bit, but still an excellent shittiness score.



Only just the usual missions on Rising Star today. Nothing interesting to note. Pleased that my Ego had remained down so I can focus on trying to build levels and Starbits. I still haven’t ever sold any Starbits, but I do consider it from time to time (like right now)…might feel like there was more of a point to the time I’ve spent if I did. 🤷


Of course I was very tempted to play Splinterlands today. Feels weird not to, but I know better than to try on the last day of the season, so I just waited out the clock.


I got my participation reward for the latest brawl and was able to get another Gladiator pack:


And I won a pack from @h3m4n7 👍😄🥳
Nothing too major, four commons and a rare, but I did level up the reflector to level three and the arbalest to level two, so it helped:


Otherwise, just staked my SPS drop again and just sat tight as far as vouchers go. I still have some left to sell, but waiting for the moment…until I get an itch to harder into some pool or another, likely.
