Different strokes my friend.

My hypothesis is that adulthood doesn't start in Western culture until 27. It seems to be a watershed age for a lot of people. First (career)job, marriage, children, moving, death. 18-26 is the tweens for adulthood. Not quite a self-contained entity, not a child.

Yes, the 90's version of Jim Morrison.

I preferred Jim (even though he was dead before I was born) though I have come to appreciate Nirvana more lo these many years later than I did when they first came out even though that was high school for me.

Morrison was a rock god, the Lizard King who could anything. A pioneer of the post-war dream where everything seemed possible, and youth would lead the way.

Colbain was the broken heart of a forgotten generation, screaming at the hypocrisy suffocating him. The poster child of the forgotten children promised so much and finding so little.

Both facets of their culture and time. Both slain by same.

Storyteller I should have those books sorted for you soonish


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well, unpacking is taking a bit longer than I expected. Pulled a lat muscle along the way.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Welcome to 50!

I've been here since May. It's not so bad


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Ugh. So tired. Must finish unpacking.

There isn't much of one for you from the sound of it as I'm guessing your commute + work time runs roughly 8 a.m. until 6:30 or 7 p.m. Quite a few things you can do online nowadays, but your initial DMV trip will be irksome in all likelihood, and you'll probably have to do two (one for your license, the second after emissions and safety inspections are complete re: registration of said vehicle). A goodly number of places are of course open either very early or relatively late in terms of day-to-day retail. Voter registration now is basically a check-box when you get your license. Check your municipal and DMV websites to get more current information since it's been a while from the last time I dealt with them.

Important-ish errands like bank runs, gov't stuff ... yeah, those're a hassle and a half on weekends or not even an option. I'd brace to eat a Saturday to deal with the DMV. While vastly improved from Ye Olde Days, it remains a chore on the weekends.

As long as I can do the DMV on the weekend I'll be good. I am a very patient person. Waiting in the DMV doesn't bother me.

Yeah you are right on the commute, except it's 7-530. I went with the early flextime option, since, you know, four hour sleep thing.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So, four hours seems to be holding steady. I could sleep for a whole lot more, but I'm up.

Ah well, not like I don't have lots of unpacking to do .....

A really bizarre occurrence happened to me

Right before I left WHOI, someone left a book called Straight On Till Morning by Christopher Golden on the leave/take pile. Although I am trying to pare down my books, for some reason I grabbed it.

I ended up starting to read it during my move and my first days working. The setting was the town one over from where I lived as a kid. The protagonist was my exact age. It is a coming-of-age horror story set during my coming of age!

Just a really bizarre frisson when the characters are seeing a movie in the theater I went to see The Dark Crystal in ten times. Or go to the local lake at the beach where I spent my summers.

I'd start looking for gaming groups that you could help fill your weekends with.

There's a LGS three miles from me with open gaming on Sunday. Their website is a bit primitive but I've found this seems to be the norm for LGSs. Lord know es why, I mean, you'd think one employee at least would have some computer skillz....


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Although, I must say, not having a weekday off to do things in will be a bit of an adjustment. I guess I'll just have to think of a solution while lazing about tomorrow

Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Anyway. On to cheerier matters

It's Friday afternoon! And that MEANS something to me!

HUZZAH!!

Two days off! Like, in a row even!


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Terrible stuff. A friend remarked that we are rapidly approaching the new normal with these attacks. And school shootings. They barely merit one day of news coverage. Remember Columbine? That would be a bad week and then forgotten nowadays

Wilbur seems to be enjoying it. I think he enjoys the fact I am on a regular schedule and home a lot more often.

Is it already Thursday? Outstanding!


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well, time to walk el Poocho MacGoocho. Catch you later Bill and Ted!

I think I am going to hold off on Internet for a bit. I have unlimited data on my phone, and I think I can hotspot my Kindle to get Netflix. Also, I have a huge DVD library I can go thru. Saving money is key right now.

I need to read @100 books by next fall. I think it's doable.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

One nice thing about my commute is that it has reinvigorated my reading. Considering the amount of unread books I have in my tsundoku, this is a good thing.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

And so the unpacking continues....

The days of snatching 2-3 hours between jobs is OVER baby!

Still doing that, meself. I was having trouble falling asleep while driving and veering off the road, across the center line, etc. I started stopping for coffee as soon as I start nodding. Now I sleep while driving - I actually dream and stay on the road. Then, when I wake up, I don't know where I am, nor if I am really awake or still dreaming.

It's awful.

Please stop doing that, Treppa. 'tis a recipe for becoming road pizza.

Yes. I only survived because I only need four hours a night. That's a genetic blessing. If you are sleeping while driving, one day a deer or bear is going to interrupt your autopilot

That will be a bad day.

Please Treppa, stay safe. I know the slog, try not to burn yourself to the ground. We all love you and want you safe.

Oddly enough, though I've eaten bear, iguana, squirrel, moose, and ostrich, I've never had duck either.

I think I might have tried it once. I'm not sure

It is amazing the spiritual difference working on a regular dinurial period makes. I honestly feel so refreshed. That and being able to sleep as long as I want. I keep waking up four hours after I lay down, and I can turn around and go right back to bed. The days of snatching 2-3 hours between jobs is OVER baby! That alone is worth all the effort.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Five AM! Time for another splendiferous day!

Nope. That's my spirit animal. In fact, if Paizo had a good Octopus icon I would retire the monkey.

Takes longer, less stressful, wsaaaaaay less likely to become road pizza. Yeah, it's a good trade-off.

And I get a travel subsidy! Yay !

I'd be interested in those if you still have them.

They are for Sunday (the only day left open when I bought them)

I'll just want the original value if you are interested
Yup, definitely interested. How much and how would you like to work the exchange?

Well, let me contact the show. They might go for an address change, and I could put in your address. I have to find the info. I'll get back to you ASAP
