Took my mom to see Star Trek for Mother's Day. She and I watched all 6 original films together so I figured I shouldn't break that tradition now. I actually didn't hate it. In fact liked most of it though there was one part I kinda wanted to walk out on. Not surprisingly Bones was my favorite character (not counting the actual Spock).

I got a call about ten minutes ago from a Statecomm Group. Of course it was a recording. This recording said in a very casual voice, so casual I almost thought it was a real person, that they were aware that I had over 6000 dollars in credit card debt and I was paying over 25% interest. The funny thing is that neither Aaron or I even have a credit card. So, when prompted I pressed 1to speak to an agent. Rather quickly a foreign sounding woman answered the phone. To the best of my recollection, here is that conversation.

Operator: Would you like to speak to an agent?

Frank: No, I would like to be taken off of your calling list.

O: Why!?!? We just want to help you reduce your debt.

F: No one in this household owns a credit card, let alone has 6,000 dollars in credit card debt.

O: But we can help you with your debt.

F: Um...

O: Do you have any debt?

F: (angry) No, I don't!

O: Well good for you. (hangs up)

Everything has been pretty good on the kidney front. The only snag I have run into is crazy weight gain. Ever since I was let off my renal diet I have been gaining weight like a crazy person. To combat this I have recently sworn off of soda, red meat, and greasy food and plan to cut down on my "treats". My mother is giving me her treadmill and Aaron and I are going to buy our own set of pins for the apartment's weight room since somebody keeps stealing the ones that are supposed to be there. I really got scared when I was no longer able to fit into pants that fit like a tent two months ago. My self image aside, I have to lose this weight or risk developing diabetes. The medication I am on make me much more likely to get it than the average Joe.

Somewhere around two months ago I embarked on a new Dungeons and Dragons venture. I put together a new group to try out, not only 4th Edition, but several campaign ideas I have had kicking around for quite some time. So far both have been exceeding my expectations! 4th Edition is very different. The game would probably run a lot smoother if none of us had played D&D before. Concepts from previous editions occasionally trip us up. The fact that we have some "new" players has turned out to be a boon. Though they used to play D&D back before there was more than one edition to keep track of,  they are still green enough to interpret these new rules exactly as they are written without being clouded by "how it used to be". It feels so good to look forward to D&D again.

Last night I had a sex dream about Spider-Man. What the fuck is wrong with me?

I realized I haven't written anything in some time about my health and well being. Fortunately in this case no news is in fact good news. Everything has been going rather well. I haven't really written anything because there was nothing worth writing about... and I got World of Warcraft.

I was creating a new character on World of Warcraft to play with Amy when only the two of us are online. As a lark I tried the name Gygax. I got it.

RIP
