I don’t know if I could do what mercy is doing. It’s very courageousApril 12, 2019 at 5:18 pm #17681
LOL I have wondered why I do it, sometimes. But then I consider the alternative and realize I am lucky to have this choice. Even a few years ago, this sort of cancer might have put me in the ground. Now, I at least have a chance for a number of years more. I do admit, however, that this drek really sucks.April 12, 2019 at 5:20 pm #17682
Embrace the suck?April 13, 2019 at 5:49 am #17693
Embracing the suck certainly applies today. I have been out of the chair for almost 12 hours and I can barely feel my fingers due to the tingling and numbness. This qualifies as the worst I have had this problem so far and is a bit on the scary side. I have to carry a bag around with me that continues to pump chemo drugs into my system for 46 hours. My susceptibility to cold is off the charts and just about everything I try to touch without mittens on is painful. No nausea, yet, though, as they have given me some very strong anti-nausea meds by IV, but those start wearing off on Sunday. All in all, I am sucking big time and my poor wife is right there with me at every step. I keep telling her that she should kick me to the curb and the homeless shelter, but she refuses. Crazy woman.
It is probably only with her support and that given by you guys that allows me to keep doing this drek, so I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Oh, by the way, if you note spelling errors, it might be due to my tingling fingers. I can barely feel the keys and make frequent mistakes by not pressing down hard enough to get the letter out. I have tried to fix all of those, but it is laughable at how many times I have to make the same correction again and again. Yeah, I am laughing at it, so you can, too.April 13, 2019 at 6:45 am #17696
Hi @mercy ,what Tanya sees is no where near as civilised. Batshit might very well kill that man if see gets her hands on him. Might be my use English idom. To “lift” someone mean to punch them so hard they fall over. Bronwean did in one blow and is now very aggressive.April 13, 2019 at 6:50 am #17697
I think that sounds like true love. She might be a keeperApril 13, 2019 at 2:02 pm #17706
You just put up a 1,000-word post that doesn’t have any typos or spelling errors, just the wrong location at the top. So far, so good.
I know this is your RP and not a GM plot point, but let’s be mindful of our setting. We’re in an AAA district outside of a luxury hotel. They’re going to take a dim view of assault, let alone murder, even if it is a mugger. I grant that this is probably a good expression of Bronwean’s “Shoot First, Don’t Ask” and “Combat Junkie” qualities, but we don’t want to get you arrested, or a SIN burned, before the job even begins in earnest.
I did like the line about “get[ting] some newspapers for you to sit on”. I doubt that paper newspapers still exist, but if they do then it’s definitely some rich corpers staying in the Gates Undersound Hotel who would have them.April 13, 2019 at 2:08 pm #17707
@tecumseh glad someone understood the situation. She is not called batshit for no reason.April 13, 2019 at 3:17 pm #17709
At Tacos Chukīs right now with my son. Writing about it made me want to go. My son is a picky toddler who only eats the tortillas, but the tacos are so good it brings a tear to my eye.April 13, 2019 at 4:31 pm #17710
@electric_muppet I understand entirely what Bronwean is doing and why, but doing it at the entrance to Tanya’s hole in one of the most upscale places in Seattle is just not allowed. Bronwean stands a very good chance of being arrested and going to jail. Please try to remember that you cannot do everything in accordance with your qualities. Pick the time and place, and please not at Tanya’s home.
@tecumseh LOL You have to realize that post took ever so long to complete because of the numerous errors I kept finding. I must have worked on it for about an hour or more after the original write. And I still put the wrong location up.April 13, 2019 at 4:55 pm #17711
Another thing to remember is that Tanya’s suite is U3A, which also includes U3B as additional rooms. That means that her rooms are three floors below the water level. The lobby of the hotel is on the ground floor, so you have to go down to get to her place. Additionally, the hotel staff will not just escort someone to Tanya’s suite as the protocol is to have someone from the suite come to the elevators and accept the guest(s). If Tanya is with someone, she can take them in without the hotel security doing more than checking IDs at the elevator. The same is said for leaving. If you want to leave the suite, you will either need Tanya or Monique to escort you to the elevator. The guards are all former spec-ops people from several different branches and so are well trained and armed, so please do not try to make a scene that requires them to get involved. I am sure that just about any of us could take out a few guards, but the resulting issues would make it hard for Tanya to continue living here. And she really likes it here.
I am going out for a couple of hours to see if I can get some exercise and will post when I get back. In general, Tanya would have waited for all four people to arrive, then tell them that she usually gets up at about 0530 to go on a run. She alternates her run days with either racquetball or using the hotels excellent climbing wall. She ran this morning, so tomorrow is a climbing day and she asks if anyone wants to get up with her. After returning to the suite at about 0830, she showers, dresses, and eats a breakfast in the dining room with Monique. She recommends a planing session after that, but part of that can be accomplished during breakfast. The suite is secure of bugs and is swept by hotel security daily and by Monique several times a day. I will get an official post up later, but that would be the gist of it. I am sorry of some things about the suite were unclear, but I did try to put some of the security measures in earlier posts. Perhaps my chemo brain caused me to miss doing that.April 13, 2019 at 6:41 pm #17715
I’ll edit then, having Rebecca refuse to go there as it would feel too much like a cage.April 13, 2019 at 6:50 pm #17717
Edited my last post, including letting Tanya know that Rebecca would find somewhere else to sleep.April 13, 2019 at 6:56 pm #17718
Would she be open to coming back for planning sessions, or is that out as well. If so, we will need an alternate locations for that.April 13, 2019 at 7:06 pm #17720
she’ll come back.April 14, 2019 at 2:52 am #17731
Mercy didn’t Tanya said we’ll go driving a bit? I was under the impression that Rebbeca went to check the place while Tanya went to Ichante’s place.
I can live with your interpretation no worries.April 14, 2019 at 10:42 am #17743
She did, indeed, and still hopes to do that with you. She had not intended the invite to be that evening, though, so I am sorry if we misinterpreted each other. Since it was already getting late, she was going to talk to you about that in the morning at breakfast. Is that OK?April 14, 2019 at 10:51 am #17744
I have to be honest, I got totally lost as to where we all were and when.April 14, 2019 at 10:56 am #17746April 14, 2019 at 10:56 am #17747
I believe that right now it is moving to early Sunday morning. You, Ichante, and Ex-Gladius, are staying at Tanya’s hotel suite. Rebecca, Zag, and Al stayed elsewhere.
