I’m doing a second sleep study tonight.
Going to try the CPAP mask.
I’m not sure I will like it, but I have been tired for years.
I had 15.7 events per hour before.
Curious if can deal with it.
I can be very peculiar about things.
So, I tried Pokemon Go yesterday and it’s good fun going around the neighborhood.
I thought I might try it walking in the woods today. Not so much.
First, it wasn’t working. And more importantly, it’s not the point.
I go in the woods to turn off the world. Sometimes I will take out the phone for pictures, but usually it stays on airplane mode or even in the car.
And going out to Rites of Spring every year, the phone doesn’t work. So I mainly just use it as an alarm. This year I used it as a clock too since my watch battery died but I prefer not to do that.
And it was good to go to Osborndale State Park. It has been too long.
I saw a post about it on Facebook.
And thought I would try it.
Fun to walk down Cliff Street in Ansonia and finding landmarks for extra stuff, mainly Pokeballs so far.
And surreal to see so many people out with their phones and cars playing. Probably a dozen around 9pm.
And will be curious if this continues or is just a fad. I will try it again for sure. It’s a silly way to enjoy a walk.
Just watched a fun documentary on Amazon Prime about a collector trying to get all 678 official retail-licensed Nintendo Games (NES) without going online.
It was very sweet. And I wonder how many other people own a full size Jar Jar Binks and Darth Maul. I guess people do like Star Wars: Episode I.
Personally, I am not just not an obsessive collector. We do own all 11 Dominion sets, but that’s because it’s me and Lanna’s favorite game.
And I would like to own a TI 99/4 or 4a, because that’s what I grew up with.
And I do think computer gaming would have been huge with or without the NES.
And I do wonder what the NES might have done to pinball. I think it did change the arcade forever.
I just watched the first three episodes of this on HBOGo.
I want to like it more.
Some of it like the Ben Affleck Deflategate rant was just bizarre.
Charles Barkley was good
Bill Heder was great.
Joe Rogen talking about the UFC kind of boring
Mark Cuban and Malcolm Gladwell talking about NBA ownership would have made a great podcast.
I think and hope Bill Simmons on HBO does more to produce great content like he did as part of 30 for 30 with ESPN.
This isn’t totally working but I am still curious.
And I highly recommend Bill Simmons’ “Book of Basketball.”
I am now 42, unfortunately that comes with a body not as flexible as 42.
I have a lot of pains, headaches, knees, back, and other things.
Sometimes from things like foot boards, sometimes from loud people, sometimes from my sinus and allergies.
Luckily, I can get away with ibuprofen and a little Tylenol usually.
I have taken narcotics before, but always less than proscribed.
I feel like we have a long, long way to go with pain care.
Narcotics like Opium and Heroin are very, very old, centuries.
Aspirin and Inseads and I think Tylenol are all 19th Century.
I hope we can do better because so many people are in pain and so many became addicted.
Insanely, Oxycontin was marketed as non addictive. Which is an incredible falsehood.
And I hope in a few years we are doing incredibly better with pain.
We need to.
I met and married a Mainer with a huge family. The fabulous and amazing Lanna Lee Maheux.
Whenever I go up, I’m amazed how many relatives I have and how different it is up north.
I just watched the No Reservations Maine episode and Milo isn’t too far away from North Guilford where my mother-in-law lives.
I personally can’t imagine being there all seasons but there is something great about a camp, especially on the water.
There is nothing like the water in lakes and ponds. Connecticut is just not the same. Doesn’t smell as good either.
I will be curious where life takes us in the future.
I like visiting up north but at twilight I feel delicious.
Was just outside, and gave up from the mosquitoes.
I guess the real Mainers aren’t even bothered by mosquitoes which I find strange. They get used to it.
My mom was always delicious too, so maybe it’s a family thing.
But, bugs definitely bug me.
I really need to do it more.
I love food.
I love spicy flavors and discovering new things.
I was the grillmaster today.
I prefer to cook corn in the microwave usually for 4 minutes with a paper towel.
Ribs can be hard to cook, I wonder if St. Louis Ribs take longer to cook.
And I always wash my hands after making hamburger.
I should cook more, try more recipes and make more big meals like my wife Lanna does.
But, it was good to cook today. I shouldn’t learn how to make some of the Asian noodle dishes and soups I like so much.
Today is my twelfth wedding anniversary to the fabulous, hilarious and beautiful Lanna Lee Maheux.
It was great to spend some time up north celebrating the birthday of one of my mother-in-law’s best friends and her twin sister.
There’s something special out here in the Guilford, Maine area.
And of jumping into a pond.
Happy fourth of July everyone and be safe.
