- Woke up late. Got ready slowly. Lunch = pb sandwich - coffee + a pear. Confirmed the encore event had no issues. Whee.
Helped Gaby test her discord and stuff.
Started work on adding ancillaries to the Centers for Skaven Control mod. No masks, I can't afford to invest the time to 3D model masks onto all of the units faces. Ah well...
LAUNDRY. Also Dragon Quest XI.
Started a new campaign as KARL FRANZ to test my changes. So many changes. So many dumb bugs.
Dropped off the postcards from last night, then retrieved Chinese food from Great Wall.
Dinner = boneless spare ribs + key lime pie - alcohol.
No time for whiteboard stuff, but that's OK because I was so happy with how the modding was going.Sunday
- Woke up a little late. Stretched reasonably quickly. Went for a constitutional. Reflexively I nod if anyone tries to make eye contact when I'm walking. I need to break that habit so I can shake my head at anyone who makes eye contact who isn't wearing a mask.
Lunch = Dunkin.
Mostly killed time by playing Dragon Quest XI. I'm in love.
Also cleaned the floors.
Dinner = General Tso's + key lime pie + Mike's hard black cherry lemonade + Crabbie's + WWE Clash of Champions. The show was superb. Every match was great. That doesn't mean it was what was expected! Roman Reigns vs Jey Uso was tremendously story driven, very emotional. Wow.
After the show, kept going with Dragon Quest XI and got to the point where I go back in time to meet my dead grandfather. Fucking hell, too many emotions for one day!
Ended my KARL FRANZ campaign because I was done testing changes. I've got the Mask Warden, the Plague Doctor, and the Essential Worker followers working as expected... except I only have an icon for the Mask Warden, not the others.
Taking out the garbage was an ordeal. Wasn't until I got back inside that I realized I'd left the apartment without the mask. WTF??
Tried to get some whiteboard stuff done, but it was so late and I was so tired. Quick shower, then in bed by 3:30am.
are at war, and that's fucking terrible because Azerbaijan is part OF NATO, which means we're expected to side with them.
Fighting that was reported to be fierce broke out on Sunday between Azerbaijan and Armenia and quickly escalated, with the two sides claiming action with artillery, helicopter and tanks along a disputed border.
The military action centered on the breakaway province of Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian separatist enclave in Azerbaijan. Ethnic tensions and historical grievances in the mountainous area north of Turkey and Iran have made kindling for conflict for decades.
The fighting on Sunday, however, was reportedly more severe than the typical periodic border skirmishes, and both governments used military language describing the events as war. Before Sunday, the last major escalation was in 2016.
This year, a small flare-up in July went almost ignored. The mediators of a diplomatic settlement process, France, the United States and Russia, are distracted and increasingly at odds over other issues, analysts say. The conflict simmered, all but forgotten, until Sunday.
"Horrible news" from the Caucasus, Thomas de Waal, a senior fellow with Carnegie Europe, wrote on Twitter. The fighting was "already a small war." Both sides reported civilian dead and wounded. "People are not happy," Iosif Adamyan, a hotelier in the breakaway region's capital, Stepanakert, said in a telephone interview after he woke up on a balmy fall morning to explosions, shooting and the rumble of tanks on the streets. "The planet has enough problems already," he said.
By early afternoon, Azerbaijan said its forces had advanced to capture seven villages and had surrounded an unspecified number of Armenian troops it was threatening to kill if they did not surrender. Armenia claimed it was holding fast and had destroyed Azerbaijani tanks and helicopters.Andrew E. Kramer
My prediction is that Azerbaijan started the war because the NYT refuses to name Armenia as the aggressor. Let's see how that goes.
