21:14 - Gaming
The same person who got me started on lj also tried several times to get me playing an online game, which one I don't remember. Which ever it was, with the PB I had at the time and the fact that I've never been crazy about the modern soldier bang bang let's go blow something up type things, I didn't get on well with the game and it didn't get on well with the 'computer'. Ended up I've pretty much avoided online gaming since. Even skipped that Final Fantasy version and waited til the next one came out.

Well, thanks to a friend of my daughter that has all changed. Not that I'm into a zillion new games, but one night when I was staying at my kid's place, her friend Sam was showing me this game he was hooked on for the past two or three years. At first I listened only to be polite, but as the night wore on I got more and more interested. The name of the game, which I'm now a paying, playing member? Wizard 101. I have six characters (all but ice). It's not a bang bang shoot-em-up game. It kind of puts me in mind of FF in the fight methods. Admittedly it's a bit of a Harry Potter rip off, but it works. It's majik.

I generally hate advertizing, but I'm gonna plug their site for anyone who might be interested. Wizard 101

21:23 - shorts
I can see I've been tweeting too long by the last couple of posts. :(

Some days you wake up and think, "Ah. Today I'm finally going to get some things I've been putting off done. And from the looks of the schedule, there shouldn't be too many problems. Nice short day." Ha. Do you ever wonder why you even thought such a thing? Ever had one of those days when everything just seems to go right? Me neither.

Current mood:  Resigned

Sometimes, no matter how insane you know you are, you just can't help the way you feel. :/

Even a good, strong heart will eventually give out when too many times broken.

06:13 - Sleep? What's that?
Sometimes I really envy people (like my dad, for instance) who can say, "Okay, I have to get up at X time tomorrow so I need to go to sleep now. ZZZZZZZ" I was up early yesterday, after having been up at maximum intervals of every two hours the whole night before. I captured a bit of vitamin D yesterday afternoon, and I admit I snoozed on and off during that when the cats and dog would let me, but not much. I've been "heading to bed" since 8:35pm last night, when I was having trouble keeping my eyes open. By ten o'clock I was actually in the bed, but for some reason had to get up. At midnight, I had drank my usually helpful camomile tea and was actually _in_ bed and nearly asleep (the first-stage dreams had begun - before you actually sleep but the mind has wandered off on its own course.) I'm pretty sure the bladder woke me that time. Since then I've tired myself and been under the covers at least three times, but every time I lay down, I'm awake again. Now I'm wide awake and drinking another cup of tea (not camomile)... I give up. :/

[Edit: I suppose with all the time references i should point out that was written at 6:13 am (or 06:13 for you 24-hour types) my time.]

Current mood:  awake

03:31 - Not just me?
Went up to get a few more nails to drive in my coffin -- I'm definitely losing this battle, as I can't seem to give the f'ers up -- and was driving by house after house with all the lights still on. I'm thinking, "What the hell are all these people still doing up at three o'clock in the morning? I thought I was the only idiot that pulled that shit on a regular basis."

23:11 - Here we go again
Was in the kitchen a few moments ago trying to define/decipher my late-night cravings - again. Finally came up with "something soft, sweet, and not gooey". No sooner had I thought it when a voice butted into my musings: "Well, I can do soft and sweet, but I can't guarantee the not gooey part." I walked out of the kitchen laughing. :)

Current mood:  amused

00:07 - Really?
They said, "Your heart has been badly damaged." I felt like saying, "No shit, Sherlock?"

Will you be my lover? Will you be my love?
For one there is a choice to make,
The other there is none.

15:19 - Ugh
Ever have one of those days where every two-minute project you attempt turns into a two-hour pain in the arse? Guess what kind of day I'm having. My luck if I tried to alleviate my frustration by finding something fun to do, the job that should last all night would turn out to be the one two-minute project of the day. :/

19:39 - Smoking
This is the first time in my life that I can say I am honestly considering making smoking a habit of the past -- permanently. I'm not saying I will succeed, as I do not remember far enough back to remember not having smoked, and I can remember a long way back. I have memories from ages 1 through 5 that are clearer than some more recent, but I've smoked since I was a baby (9 months old). I have quit at different points in my lifetime, but never with the plan to make it permanent. The only reason I'm considering it now is because the chemicals being forced into tobacco now (to disillusion the non-smokers into thinking cigarettes are fire safe, which is another tasteless joke) are making me sick. Literally.

Edit: So I broke down and went and bought one pack of filters, thinking they might be easier on me than the roll-your-owns I'd been making do with. No difference, they still kill me. :(

Edit again: My breathing didn't improve, but the mood swings did somewhat.

Current mood:  depressed

20:34 - .
Where do you go when you've something to say, but no place to say it? When you want no one to hear yet you feel you have to shout it out loud? When you can hold it in no longer?

I miss the warmth of the body that was never in my bed, only my head; the sound of the heartbeat within, and the touch of the hand that was never in mine. :(

Current mood:  Forlorn

22:47 - Sweet Tooth
I thought I wanted something sweet, but the more I looked around the house for something to sate that hunger, the less anything I saw or even thought about appealed to me. Then suddenly I realized that what it was I wanted was not in the house, could not be bought, and was totally unattainable.

Current mood:  melancholy

12:28 - Heluva Day.
The day didn't start out too bad. Woke up a little early, but got rid of the kids an hour or so later when they left on their weekend camping trip. They neglected to mention a couple things that will become apparent if you decide to plunge into the long darkness.Collapse )

Update: Took the car to get it on an analyzer - twice. Can't find anything wrong.

Current mood:  relieved

06:15 - Writer's Block: You’re perfect, now change
Would you change anything about your significant other? What would it be?
"Would you change anything about your significant other? What would it be?"

No, but there might be a thing or two about myself I would.

17:42 - Impersonation
Why is it people will go so far out of their way to try to convince people they're someone else? I'm not talking about people like Rich Little, who make big bux out of it (besides, they're not trying to make you believe they're really the people they're imitating). I may not agree with it (I don't) but I can even understand it in the context of identity theft. There, those who do it want something -- it's not theirs, but at least there's a point to it. The "pretending" I'm referring to here happens mostly, but not limited to, famous people.

I just got spammed on Twitter with yet another person trying to convince me they're RP. Don't people have enough faith in their own personalities to just be themselves? I can understand fan accounts, though I think they should be appropriately named -- those are just mildly annoying. But why try to convince me (or others) you really are that person? Do you just like to toy with people or what? Get a life. If you want to be famous, go out and work for it. Be famous for being yourself.

Current mood:  irritated
