Ever since I played Persona 4 many years ago, I've had a fascination with figuring out bitter melon.  I tried cooking it a couple of times, with awful results, but I also tried a bitter melon herbal tea that I liked, so I knew it had some potential.  Since this seemed l...

It seems I went a bit too hard with the anti-poor-posture back work mentioned last week, as I agitated some muscle(s) just under my right scapula.  It's no worse than minor injuries I've dealt with before, fortunately, but I did skip out on doing a challenge this weeken...

I'd had the idea of a blog post about the use of languages in D&D in the back of my mind lately, and seeing a post on that topic on Goblin Punch this morning was motivation enough to actually go through with it.  As evidenced in my previous TTRPG post, I like having lan...

It took a little longer than I'd expected, but my hands are feeling good again.  I packed in an extra challenge to help make up for the delay that pushed me into.

In other news, sorry to Samurguybri for taking so long to post your comment and reply to it.  I'd thought I...

There is an old (though far older in apocrypha than verifiable records indicate) veiled insult/curse: "May you live in interesting times".  I'd say the present days qualify as interesting on a global scale.

It's been a little while since I've done one of these posts.  Let me change that.

Well, the obvious way to handle this would be to come up with six magic great swords, but that's setting a low bar.  In a convoluted reference to Delta rolling an 18 on...

The best-laid plans....  A late shift in my schedule made me bump my monthly burpee challenge back to today (April 12).  I swapped in a pass/fail workout in its place for Saturday, but I must've pushed a bit too hard with the fingertip diamond push ups as I have some li...

In the comments to this post by noisms touching on the semantics of titles, user Lich Van Winkle brought up the matter of having varied languages for all manner of creatures.  That is a typical practice of mine, and even when I make exceptions for creatures living on a...

I've seen plenty of jokes about people and/or their pets falling out of shape during their time at home, and while I have nothing to say about the latter as my experience with pets has always been with indoor varieties, the former is just silly.  Gyms in their modern se...

As I've said a few times in the past, there's something meditative about my pass/fail workouts.  Maybe frustrations with certain matters as a result of the current pandemic is part of why I keep favoring them over timed workouts, but I will make up for this week's lack...
