Holy Carp!

I am sure that you may have noticed my lack of blogging for the past couple of months. I have not had the best of luck in my personal life, which is something I don't usually mention here. Things were finally starting to even out it looked like I was going to be back into the hobby full swing; then out of the blue my luck went sour again.

This past Sunday I was hit/clipped by a car while crossing the street. I am now on the mend from this event, but will be unable to do anything hobby related for probably another 4-6 weeks as my relocated shoulder and broken fingers heal.

This has been the most awful 10 months of my life, but despite that I have worked hard to stay positive.

What I am going to try to do is finish up my gaming outside the box series, if I can coax my friend into editing the articles. This one handed pecking is awfully slow and tedious.


  1. jeez that is brutal. get well soon~!

  2. Holy carp indeed, take it easy and count yourself lucky it was just a clipping.

    We'll be here when you return to duty.

  3. Yikes. Glad to hear you're on the mend. Here's hoping the next 10 months are going to be awesome to make up for it - get well soon!

  4. Never, NEVER make the "Death or Glory!" attempt when tank shocked.

  5. Ouch Jim, Heal up fast!!!
    Sounds like it could have been much worse, hopefully there's no long term damage.

    I'll send you all the positive Karma I have saved up..which sadly probably is not that much...

    GET WELL!!!

  6. Big Jim

    I was really sorry to hear about the injury. Get well soon, stay safe, and remember we're all thinking about you, mate.

  7. Shit man that's awful! It was getting hit by a car while riding my bike that did my neck in early last year (Dislocated my C2) so I know what you're going through.

    Rest up and don't rush back, the internets will still be here once you're healthy again.

  8. YIKES!

    That really sucks (sorry for stating the obvious). Glad to hear you're trying to keep positive though; it's all too easy for stuff like this to push you down and make you wallow.

    Hope things start picking up for you sooner than the docs say they will!

  9. Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Hope you get better soon Jim!

  10. Sorry to hear about your injuries Jim, here's hoping you're back on your feet soon and with a ton of good luck to cash in at the Royal Bank of Karma.

    If not, there's always Power Armour and a BFG!

    Get well soon mate.

  11. Damn, my joke about Death or Glory got stoled! Get better soon, and give Chase back his vehicle magnet!

    PS: Did you do a barrel roll? :D

  12. Big Jim dam that is one hell of a Big Jim unfortunate event. I hope you get better soon and if you need any help I would be more than willing to lend a hand.

  13. Having recently suffered the pain of a motoring accident leaving me one-handed for a while (although not as bad as yours), I know how you feel.

    Get better soon, and if your friend can't edit the articles, I'll gladly do it.

  14. I'm sorry to hear that, man. I know what year was my worst in life too, so I can relate.

    Luckily, I'm 7 years beyond it... but I can still remember the suckage!

    Good luck on the mend, my man.

  15. Thanks for the well wishes guys, it is much appreciated!

    Stay possessive my friends!

    Ok back to bed for me.
