*looks around carefully, eyeing the cobwebs*

Okay... it's been waaay too damned long since I have been in here to post. For those that find super-irregular postings irritating, sorry.

So.. what's been happening in my life lately. Unfortunately, the answer is: not a helluva lot.

Home life is pretty boring. I sit in front of the computer for 8-10 hours a day and do online gaming. Of course, I enjoy it immeasurably, and love the hectic busy-ness of it all. I've become super-involved with Neopets *G* You should all try it. http://www.neopets.com

Okay, enough plugging. I'm spending the bulk of my time on Devil's Macabre, a nice little WoD chat that refuses utterly to have anything to do with the Time of Judgement, which makes it a chat on the edge in perpetuity. After a year and a bit of solid effort, they've made me Head Mage Storyteller, so I can completely commiserate with all the STs out there who actually read my posts. Damn players can be stupid sometimes. They can also make for some of the most rewarding scenes and experiences.

I'm working to help open up a new chat, set in Baltimore. Shadows on the Bay is going to start off as a Revised Edition WoD Chat, and when all the new supplements have been released, will liekly be switching over to WoD 2.0 Could be fun times. So there, they've made me Head Werewolf and Fera ST. Yay! Multiple ST goodness! So much for actually playing.

Work-wise, things are going better, now that I've hada vacation. I actually feel rested and capable at work. I care again. Always a good thing. There was a bit of a snafu today. I'm told I have a single group of interviewers to train, which, in my mind is 8-12. I get there, my list of attendees is 17. Our Recruitment guy says "No worries, chances are only 12 or 14 of them will show." Murphy strikes again. 16 trainees. And here I am trying to train them all and deal with all the questions and problems of a first day of training alone. My legs hurt. I spent the whole damned night standing. Usually, with a single group, I get a chance to sit for at least part of it. Not so with a double.

So yeah. Tired, sore, and full of waay too much energy. Now I have to find time to sleep sometime tonight so I can get up at a reasonable hour to work in the morning. Ugh! Maybe I'll have another Coke. That always relaxes me.

And now I find out that, now, since I'm back to posting again, the servers are being worked on. And it's read-only mode. Huzzah! Let's hope I don't lose this.

Gah!

I have just had the worst working week of my life. I was absolutely unproductive as an employee, and to top it off, it's Saturday and I had to call in sick to work because I got sick! Blech!

No doubt the room mate finds it amusing though, since I can no longer talk. Pounce is ecstatic. He got to nuzzle and sleep on me the whole day while I lazed in bed half-unconscious.

I really have nothing much to say (ha ha) so I'm just gonna stop here. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Wow. So tired. So all my constant hours of spending time in game-related chat rooms have finally paid off and I've been asked to become involved in the running of some of the games.

I said yes, of course, since at heart, gaming is my life now. Everything I do in the mean time like work and sleep merely goes to support my gaming life. So I've been frantically writing and preparing for a week now, getting ready for my grand debut online. To tell my first story for a group of strangers.

So I'm all elated, and bouncy and everything's ready for tomorrow night. I have the final green light from the people in charge. I have an eager group of strangers waiting for me to spin them a tale and let them participate in it.

And now I can't sleep. I know I need to. I work in the morning. In three hours I need ot get up to have my shower so I can go be a productive employee and properly teach my new trainees. And yet I'm so full of nervous energy that there's no way in hell I'll even be able to close my eyes.

I'm a bit of a perfectionist, and I know I want this thing to go off without a hitch, so I'm here pouring out my nervousness, hoping to get it out of me so I can go sleep, and get some rest so I can do this thing tomorrow night. And, of course, be a good little boy at work.

So here I go. This may have helped enough. Wish me luck.

Okay so I'm all excited 'cause I had a good day at work, had a nice easy training shift, found a posting for a job I really want to apply for, and found a sale on 12 packs of Coke cans. What could be better right?

So I'm on my way home, having a rocking good time of just being me, and then I realize that there is no more up and down. The world moves in bizarre ways, and I'm lying in the snow in agony. Stupid city hasn't bothered to sand the pedestrian walks yet. Oh no. That would be convenient. So I slip. Ass over teakettle I go, and I somehow manage to hit two funny bones all at once. Ouch!

So I stagger my way home, and now I'm sitting here in front of my wonderful new laptop in pain, with my ankle starting to swell. Spiffy!

I'm gonna go do the putting ice thing on it. I hate winter

Okay, so I've finally decided to get off my lazy butt and figure out html programming so I can design my own webpage. My ISP now gives me 10 MB free space, and I have a compy and connection to use it properly. So tomorrow a friend of mine is bringing me Dreamweaver and a tutorial program on how to use it. With luck, in the next few weeks, I should have a page or two up. Yay me!

Life otherwise is routine once again, with the added bonus that I'm writing out my thoughts once more. It's alot easier when you don't have to wait ten hours for the page to load.

I so need to stay out of gaming stores for a while. Having money has started to affect the way I think. I went in to pick up a book for a friend today, and while I was there, browsed briefly, and actively considered picking up things like pokemon cards, just because I could "afford" it. Not based on if I needed/wanted, just because I could. Fortunately, I resisted the urge, just based on the fact that I knwe I didn't really want them. God help me if it was actually something I wanted.

That's that for now. I'm gonna go look up online tutorials....

I remember it looking larger...

Alright, so it's been forever since I posted, even though I swore to people I'd be regular about it.

No excuses, no "reasonable arguments" I just didn't. Now I am. See, simple.

For those who don't know yet, I have a hella awesome new toy. My new laptop, and a nice little cable internet connection snugged into the side of it. And in the two weeks I've had it, I can honestly say I have spent more time online ad playing than I have doing anything else. Not anything else singularly, anything else combined. I am such a geek.

So small one for now. I really am gonna try to be more regular again. Ooooh! Shiny new webpages with graphics....

Okay.. today, I have a picture. Thanks many times to eurekagray who did this for me. It's actually an old pic he took of me a while ago, just cropped and smallened to make it fit here. Let me know what everyone thinks.

Looking over my friends list, I notice that lots of people have been doign introspective stuff lately. Re-evaluating positions on themselves and others in life. I completely suck at introspection of any kind, because whenever I do it, I get depressed about how much I don't like myself. Dammit. Now I've gone and done introspection.

Well, at least I'm not too depressed. That's just a statement of fact. I already knew I didn't like myself that much. Now before this gets too deep, I think I'm gonna go vanish into my fantasy worlds on the computer. Waste time, completely not sleep in preparation for work tomorrow, the usual.

Okay. So it's been a few days, since I recorded anything. To be honest, I haven't had much to record apart from I got up, I went geeking, and I slept. And sometimes not all three.

Today however, I amy entering stuff. Typing my little heart out here for everyone's enjoyment.

So where am I at. Well, my back is killing me. I bought $90 worth of gorceries today, and toted them all home myself, in one go. They were heavy, sure, but I didn't think much of it, until my back started spasming after I got them inside. Super. So I've thrown my back out, and I can barely sit and type. Of course, I can't exactly lie down either, so I'm picking the one thing that still hurts, but at least I can have fun doing.

So there was a geek session tonight. We had a shitload of fun, or at least I did. The others claimed also to have fun, and I honestly believe they have. Since, at the core, it's my high geekery that they're having fun with, this makes me inordinately proud of myself. Yay me!

Okay, enough self-congratulations.

Now, I'm off to conquer the world, or at least slap a few chickens to death.

I am so stuffed, it's not even funny any more. So I get home from work, sit down to cuddle with my kitten (who is no longer stapled to the couch, and neither is he abducted mercilessly from my apartment), when I decide that somethign to eat was in order. Not satisfied with the usual run of the mill local foods, like subs, or a long trek to get Daly Burger, I ordered chicken. The special of the day was enough chicken to account for three or four of the little clucking bastards, and when it got here, I ate almsot all fo it, with a large side salad, and a large side of fries. I am now officially paying for it.

I feel like I should be lying on my back on a pile of grass somewhere groaning under the weight of my most recent kill or something.

Gnarf. Another short entry. Oh, and for those interested, there will still definitely be gaming on Monday, when everyone manages to get here. I'll be starting piecemeal, so don't worry about rushing or holding others up.

So today was a bit crappy. They switched over my email account at work, and changed my password to get in, which they didn't bother telling me about, and I didn't find out until the end of the shift. Bleh.

My toe is still killing me, and I think I'm setting up good to ruin every left-foot sock I own with bloodstains. It's not getting better fast enough dammit!

My creative juices are pretty much totally dried up for now, I have enough money troubles to make the S&Ls look like they were legit, and I'm just generally having a crappy crappy day.

So that's about it for now. I think I'll go suffer in silence for a while.
