I feel the need to explain why I find that screenshot so funny. When I was first experimenting with the photo mode in the Fallout 76 beta, I was also trying to take my Vault-Tec ID card photo. I was messing with the settings and was cycling through the poses when I came to “kneel” which took me completely out of the frame.
I found that very funny.
This week I’ve been a mid-week warrior; I’ve been staying up too late, playing more than usual, and my system has been letting me know what it thinks of those choices (spoiler: my body is angry at me). I haven’t been this engaged with a game in a while (even though it is janky as heck), so I’ve been indulging in longer play sessions than I normally do (and at odd hours), and now I’m paying for it.
To be fair, it’s been awfully dusty here from all the Santa Ana winds, and I think I’ve been dealing with a cold on top of it. My system is mediocre at best, so I should have known better. I think I just got so excited about playing something new that I threw caution to those dusty winds, and now I’m a zombie.
Case in point: last night I was playing with a friend and even though I was super enjoying myself, I started to fall asleep while playing.
I normally write the night before I post, but I told my friend I needed to go to bed and that’s exactly what I did all of five minutes later. I climbed into bed and fell asleep HARD. Even though I slept eight hours, I still feel like I’ve barely slept. My system is telling me I need to try harder.
So, today, I’m going to try to get my errands out of the way early, then plop down on the couch with a warm beverage to relax and collect more plungers from the wastelands of Fallout 76. I may even build a more fully realized camp, complete with lawn flamingos as I love actual lawn flamingos (and flamingos in general) and I was lucky enough to find someone selling the plans for them last night. I can now build all the lawn flamingos I want.
I’m so happy about that.
Those are my gaming plans for the weekend: wander the wastelands, finally find my spacesuit (I have a great fondness for space suits), take as many rad screenshots as possible (pun intended), and sleep a little more than I think I need to. I’m sure I will also play some Destiny 2 (a friend is trying to get a special drop from the nightfall so I’d like to try to help with that), and I’d also like to start another game if possible. But really, I have a large organizing project going on and I’d love to see that through even if it means not starting another new game.
With that I ask: what will you be playing this weekend? Whatever you do, and however long you play, please remember to hydrate! It’s no joke.
Please be safe out there, friends. Cheers!
My internal clock is so messed up right now that I read this and was wondering why you were starting your weekend a day early and how I wished my weekend was starting on Thursday too but it is Friday and I’m slightly relieved, albeit scared that I’ve lost an entire day.
Anyway, I feel I’m coming down with something so after I attend my youngest’s play tonight, I am going to lay on my couch and play Pokemon and Tetris for the next two days.

Oh dear, but also hooray! Hooray for a more quickly arriving weekend!
Oh no, I hope you are feeling better now?
Planning to play the latest Tomb Raider in the near future & extend my PS Plus subscription.
