So its been almost a year since my last post. Somewhere along the line, writing to livejournal fell out of my routine, though I do still read it every weekday.

Birfday is coming up soon, my original plan was to be off in Florida watching the space shuttle launch the day after, but the launch was moved back 12 days, so I find myself in town and pondering plans.

Big day is the 27th, which is the monday after AC weekend, I suspect having a shindig that weekend is out if I expect too many people to show up, so it'll probably be first weekend in July.

I am still gonna be in Florida for 10 days in July. Which seems like a terribly bad choice of times to go, but seeing a giant thing go whoosh for the last time should make up for it.

Current Mood: blahblah
The odometer clicked over another year today. Last year I commented about buying myself a house for my birthday. It took many, many months to actually do that.
I bought a house that needed a good bit of work. Work I can do, and once its done, it'll be just the way I want it. So thats good.
It has also served to almost totally isolate me socially. The last few months have been work and working on the house (either paperwork/etc to buy it, or projects once it was actually mine)
This wasnt so bad at first, but I've dropped out of all my RPG games, havent hit any parties or gone to the pub on Friday, no Smoke Eaters, etc., etc.
It's really starting to wear on me now, though. todays my birthday. No big dinners this weekend, no one taking me out for a beer, nothing. Just another day alone, packing my things or planning the next steps of the house projects as it has been for several weeks now. Has me in a pretty blue mood today.
I cant afford to be down right now. Move-out of my duplex isnt going to slide an extra day just because I felt like moping about feeling lonely.

I just have to make it one more week, then I'll be moved in. Still months of projects to go, but I wont be commuting between multiple places every day and I'll be able to ease back and begin to exist to the outside world again.

sitting in the cab from the airport in Taiwan to my hotel. It's very overcast here, so I can't see much of the city.
it's also a long drive. I suppose not every city in the world puts their airport downtown.
Con was fun, but drama toward the end spoiled what was left enough that I left 6am Sunday morning. I suppose on the plus side, it's also keeping the PCD away.

cars here seem normal by US standards, though nit one SUV/minivan spotted yet. traffic alsoseema sedate, especially compared to japan or singapore.

Thursday and today on the northwest quad of 237 and 880, there were sheepies! eating all the pretty yellow flowers. I'd heard that the bay land management people were going to start using goats or sommuch, I guess sheep got in on the gig, too. They've done quite a good job of mowing that land as well.

The clock jumped back into place last week, and though I'd really been itching to go biking again, it also turned FREAKING COLD. It's warmed up now, and I've gone on a few outings. Still sadly out of shape, but it feels good to have some exercise again! I caught in another journal that there were some folx in Cupertino going to hook up and ride twice a week. I might poke my nose over and see if my route crosses theirs.

Kell and Feles''s party was da bomb. So many pies! and beers. and fursuits. Even met a new person or two in the crowd, which is always groovy.
Oh, and if I happen to suggest that the pizza next to me, while open to all, JUST came out of the oven and you might want to let it cool a little: let it cool a little. ;)

Pondering that twitter thing. It wouldn't be linked to my LJ, but might be better for actually remembering things I want to say in these little snippets of life between postings here...

Chairos b'day party was a grand thing? even though Chairp himself was a little scarce.
it was seriously under-fooded. I suspect a "bring snacks" in the invite email/post would have resulted in enough leftovers to last a month.
stayed quite some time, enjoying seeing folx and even meeting a new person or two. eventually, Foxglove showed up with an entire carload of speakers and gear, set it all up and cranked it way up to...one?
I've never seen that big of an audio setup play so quietly. which is fine, it wasn't so loud as to drown out all conversation, and was plenty loud to easilly hear.
just seemed like a bit of overkill for that space. anyway...

I'm in 3 rpgs. one every-other-Tuesday, one every other Sunday, and a third that happens randomly.
I'm waiting on the randomly-happening one to maybe start. used to begin At 5. because how hard is it to be someplace at 5 on a Sunday? apparently damn hard.
I also am not even sure that the game I'm playing in is taking place today. it could be "the other" game. or it could be nothing. who knows? this group has a brownian organizational ability.

Work is having a mini-shutdown. Today and tomorrow, basically. With Monday off as well, thats a sweet 5-day weekend.

Day 1 so far.
Slept in til 9. Made coffee and killed ants in the kitchen. Took a nap
Up from nap at 1. First drink of earlier-mentioned coffee, and a bowl of cereal. Afterwards, had a bit of a lie-down
Rose from the lie-down at 4, finished the morning coffee.

The day is young still. Lots more opportunities to nap, sleep, relax and otherwise snooze before bedtime tonight!

so I'm in SF today, tomorrow and Friday.
I really don't like the city at all, but here I am. it also means crazy early mornings and getting home late since I get the rush hour traffics. wheee!
I brought out a heavier jacket today thinking it would be ice cold up here, but it's strangely warm :/
I think I'll manage to make it through to the weekend without traffic-related ulcers provided I get up and out even earlier to catch BART.

I know there's folx along the south bay to SF corridor I never see, so if anyone is up for hanging out after work on my way back down, holler!

Nov. 30th, 2008 @ 04:46 am What a long strange week it was
Current Mood: lonelylonely
Soooo, had the entire week off work and the place to myself.
I had a set of goals I wanted to hit before today, but instead seemed to be working on unlocking the 'tremendous sleeper' achievement. I'm well-rested but nonplussed.
sunday was D&D gaming. there were explosions, so all was well.
Tuesday was Hackmaster. Our tank suicided because of some strange logic possessed after enough alcohol that that player's sworn off drinking at games!
Wednesday night saw coffee, something that rarely happens anymore. I soooo needed both cups of Dark Voodoo.
Thursday was THE FEAST. good company, great food. nuff said.
Val and I saw Bolt Friday night. I hadnt really been paying much attention to reviews of it, I really just knew that it existed. It was super cute, I enjoyed the story, and I was really glad Disney brought in several Pixar people early on rather than trying to keep it all in-house.
Saturday I finally _did_ make some recognizable progress done before adding a nap to my daily sleep overload. At this rate, if I didnt have to go to work ever again, there would still be flying cars filling the skies before I finish a fursuit.

I kind of knew before I started writing this that I'd had a full week of seeing people, but even when put all together like this, I still _feel_ like I had a very lonely week. Perhaps its the oversleeping pushing my awake hours all out of sorts, but it just seemed that I couldn't get ahold of anyone to hang out with outside of a group setting, that I went the last 7 days without any contact with the outside world.

Perhaps one of the things I dislike about the winter holiday season is that everyones schedules go all sideways. well, more D&D, ostensibly in 12 anna half hours from this posting. This group seems rather incapable of getting together and going on time.

in the 'yay or Japans craziness' category, we have this website advertising a new toy:

And in the 'excellence in journalism' category, I find this quote:

Surprisingly, the left side of the keyboard actually includes more than half the letters of the alphabet - a total of 15 - so there's lots of ways to create new words, while it still offers a challenge.
