This day could have been great. It really could have. I sit here now, exhausted, broken and angry. Quite a few others are feeling that way. All my mystic friends have been posting memes about Virgo season and blaming this all on that. Probably time for a reading from @tarotbyfergus. I’ve been waiting all day, by on the longer timeline, four months for my new Kingsong S18 electric unicycle. Today was the day it was suppose to arrive, and fucking FedEx, like always, couldn’t do the one job they were paid to do. I wasted an entire day waiting to sign for a package that never game.
Fuck them. Just, FUCK FEDEX! I’ve been dealing with these pricks for 20 years. They always, always fuck up. I think I need to vent and put that out in to this Virgo enraptured universe tonight. I don’t get excited about much after 40 years old, but I’ve been excited for this, and four months of pining and watching endless YouTube videos has made the anticipation unbearable. FedEx is that one friend you don’t even like that always, always lets you down. Apparently, they claim it’ll be here tomorrow between 9 - 11:00a.m., but fuck it. Take your time. Assholes!
Dark Country, the NFT based card game that I’ve been following since last fall, also had a bad day. Today was their launch event, and due to some weird code, it did not go as planned. I’ve picked up about $300 worth of packs. @robrigo has been hoarding quite a lot of rare collector sets and we were all suppose to open during the afternoon. @robrigo and I talked about doing some Dark Country fan art to help bolster their marketing and celebrate the event, so in two days, I turned around the creepy Satantic preacher straight from the Dark Country mythos.
In short, the launch event blew up. Major issues in the pack openings. I read that some of the NFT’s were being burned as soon as the packs were opened. I feel for the team because they’ve put SO much work in to this product. @robrigo, the blockchain community ambassador he is, helped in the logistics of fixing things. We’re airdropping this artwork to everyone that bought packs as well. Most of this entire blog has been me complaining, but I’m really happy with this piece. I see personal improvement and my speed has leveled up. Enjoy.
