I’m old enough to make some of these jokes now.

One of the things that I love doing is monitoring my credit. It’s different in the different bureaus (which is, as I know, to be expected), but within the different… scoring models, is also different there, and when you have a sense of humor like mine, that can get amusing. Oh, why can’t all of these be the same? Why can’t there be just one credit score? (I know, I know. Seriously, I know. I’m old enough to joke and lament about this now.)

On to things that are very much not actual jokes now, though…

It still hits hard that Jason David Frank is actually gone, and why he is gone. I’ve still been trying as hard as I can not to actually talk about the cause of his death, which has been confirmed, because I don’t want to throw that into people’s faces — I don’t want to cause them distress or trigger them, so I leave it at the fact that yes, he has regrettably passed away. I did get the chance to watch the celebration of life that his loved ones allowed to be livestreamed on his official Facebook fan page, though. In the interim (November 22nd, to be exact), I’ve begun to develop almost excruciating back pain — sciatica — that I began treating with prednisone, which it was really rather responsive to, but I know that I can’t stay on prednisone forever due to the side effects… so it returned within about a day and a half of me stopping prednisone, and my care team has become aware of this. If sciatica came about due to the frequent prednisone use I’ve needed due to asthma and migraines, this would not surprise me at all, though… but this has become painful. I hate pain.

This may not exactly be… music, but a great was put to rest today, so I wanted to include him summoning the Dragonzord in the role that gave him fame. Wherever you are, may you be at peace, Jason David Frank.

I will definitely be attending this.

I will definitely be attending this once the kids are done with their morning therapy sessions.

As a matter of fact, I will be attending this on my phone if I have to.

It’s been hard hiding his… cause of death from people who don’t need to have this thrust into their faces, but I’ve been continuing to do it for the sake of those people. I’m glad that Wikipedia has been protecting articles that have to do with him. It’s still been a shock that he’s actually gone, though. I grew up watching Power Rangers, and my two favorite Rangers (original Rangers? how do you say that?) are the two that are gone.
