Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

Warning: Novel ahead.

First of all, thank you all for letting me get that off my chest. Since I wrote that Amanda's doctor went to bat for her and got the surgery approve shortly after that post. She had the surgery January 16 and is currently halfway through recovery.

The good news is is that there were no complications. The doctor said no complications, and removed what endometriosis he found (I'll save you all the gory details-however, someday I want to make a feature film about it wink ).  So, Amanda is in the clear, and she had her uterus removed, but kept the ovaries meaning no menopause!


I was able to take 10 days off of work and she survived my first week back to work. She is currently working through PT, and healing, which can be the hardest part since, right now, she can't bend down. And, you do not know how much you bend until you can't.  Oops.


She also lost some weight, since her uterus was overweight by 12 kilos.


Thank you again for bearing with me. Here is hoping she is more physically able post recovery.

Oh, and I have gotten to share with her some bits of FIYH quips from different commentaries, as well as Teague's music. She now wants to visit LA and hang out. What have I done? big_smile

WONDERFUL news. Absolute best wishes for the recovery.

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

Great news, dude! I'm happy for her, and you by extension.

Party games. I mean Cards Against Humanity and everything that followed it. Often going for shock value humor and the same damn style of gameplay as CAH took from Apples to Apples. What Do You Meme? is the latest that I've noticed and just... I like the idea of a short game that's easy to pick up and play but I'm kind of just done with them. I'd rather spend an hour on a game with more nuance and less "well you need to know that Tracy likes cerebral answers and Emily goes for cheap dick jokes".

(This post prompted by seeing a new game from Matthew Inman, as a follow-up to Exploding Kittens, and me just going, "Ehhhh.")

Yeah, I could be done with Matthew Inman forever.

Anyway. Have you tried Jackbox games? That's where my friend-group has drifted lately.

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

I have never been a person who likes party games and would usually rather read in the corner. I get the worn-out feeling.
However, my gang discovered that What Do You Meme is fun if you make your own memes. We've all known each other since high school (or before) and pulled out the absolute worst pictures we could find. Awkward school dance pictures and homemade Shrek costumes and webcam photobooth snapshots. It's become a fun way of relieving memories together.

If it's not about musicals, I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

I've joined in on a few Jackbox stuff, good middle ground between "pull this off the table and play it quick" and "let's set aside an hour". It does shift attention to the TV though which I've lately been trying to avoid when I have folks over for a hangout/party/whatever.

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

I've never been into the build-a-joke style games like Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples, the humor has just never really landed for me. I've enjoyed the Jackbox stuff, and usually it's quite fun, but sometimes I'm just not up to the task of being witty on the spot. Recently my go to party game has been Codenames, which is a fun little word game played in teams, and that's been a huge hit. I've also had success in the past with Concept, which is a non-verbal communication/guessing game like Pictionary or Charades, but with the upside that no one has to draw or act.

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

Build-a-joke, that's a good term for the type I'm most sick of. Related one I tried was Punderdome. It is basically impossible to be presented with two unrelated things (car, breakfast) and come up with a good pun. A joke or turn of phrase, maybe, but in the two times I've played it I've never had anyone play one so good that it is worth remembering five minutes after the game ends (unlike some star Cards Against Humanity plays I've had in the past).

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

Disney is officially making sequels to their live-action remakes. There's no bottom.

Re: Thread for being deeply, non-fatalistically worn out about something

Sequels -> Trilogies -> Franchises -> Reboots -> Remakes -> [Sequels to Remakes ->] Universes

Prepare for the Disneyverse.
