I'm going to be taking tonight off streaming for sure. Tomorrow, I'm tentatively going to be a call-in guest on someone's charity stream at 7pm Central. I know from experience that shouldn't be taxing. If I'm feeling much better, I'll also stream the hour before and raid them.

Been resting as much possible, so I was able to drive over to the drive-thru testing center this morning for a real PCR test—but that feels like the extent of my exertion for the day. Thank so much for your generous support so I don't have to stress about trying to stream today.

Taking tonight off as well. The short petition stream was more taxing than I expected and my home COVID antigen self-test just came back positive so I clearly need to get some rest. Though I won’t be streaming, tips are always appreciated via

I am really wishing booster shots had been available for my age group a couple weeks earlier. Get your vaccines, y’all. This sucks.

Also, OMG, I keep opening paypal and thinking I am too delerioya to have transferred my balance to my bank, but, nope, y’all are just incredibly generous. I can rest so much easier knowing I’m not like ruining Christmas by not working for a few days. I appreciate y’all so much.

Today marks the first time ever that I started the shower, shampooed my hair, and thought, “I just don’t have the energy to finish taking this shower.” Get your boosters, y’all.

Status: - My PCR test came back positive - I'm pretty exhausted/unfocused, but otherwise okay I recorded a few minutes of HC with @cubfan135 today for his Saturday episode, and it is clear I don't have the cognitive endurance to stream yet. Thanks for your patience and support!

Spent yesterday resting and reading the ninth Expanse novel. My fever-dream-activated imagination latched on to every scene and I could just let my worries go. It's hard to conclude a nine-book series well, so I'm impressed that @JamesSACorey absolutely nailed it. Recommend.

Having rested aggressively for days, I'm feeling better enough today to attempt behind-the-scenes work like sending Patreon discord invites to all of the generous folks who signed up over the last few days at — thanks so much again, everyone!

I'm still not 100%, but feel better enough that I'm going to stream about an hour of HermitCraft tonight starting at 6pm Central on both my Twitch and YouTube. I'll have @DatTommyBoii helping me out moderating the chats, so I can focus on having fun with y'all! Afterwards...

At 7pm Central, my stream will raid @PatrickRothfuss as I join him and his kids on a call to tour their Minecraft world. They're streaming to raise money for @Heifer International, a charity that fights poverty by giving impoverished folks livestock and the training to raise it.

Pat's fundraising group, @worldbuilders , has been running fundraising drives for @Heifer since 2010! If you're the type that likes to research before you give (I know I am!), you can learn more about Heifer at: and Worldbuilders at:

During Pat's stream, we'll be sending folks to his fundraising page at But if you can't make it tonight, don't worry, this year's campaign runs from November 30th–December 14th, and that link will work for you too!

Pat also has a bet that he can beat the ender dragon in his fresh single-player world before he raises $333,333. If not, he'll read the prologue and a chapter from #DoorsOfStone ! He's now at $155,000, so I need to be a distracting guest tonight and keep him in multiplayer!
