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

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.

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

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.]

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."

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. :)

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. :/
