With that, good morrow everypony. I hope everyone is well today, had a good weekend, and has a fine week ahead of them. :) Weather is oppressively heavy, dark, and dull. Not every day can be a winner, I suppose. *shrugs*

O.O

How I managed to get all the way to work without noticing, I'll never know. Excuse me just a moment!

Nng. The morning is evil.

Much better. That explains the chill, despite the heaviness.

I've always considered the morning Chaotic Neutral. It's usually the night before that's the true culprit for a rough morning. :P

That said, here's to the morning improving and having a good day ahead of you!

Birthday:
A nice haul this year, a new iPod Nano, a wireless speaker for same, Tales of the Arabian Nights (a really fun storytelling boardgame), the new Wolfenstein (46GB?!), and a few bob in some cards. Don't have enough free space on my computer currently, so Wolf is on the back burner, but I've got my nano set up with a bunch of anime soundtracks, and have played about a half dozen games of TofAN already, and it's great craic. A good one was successfully had. :)

Kidlet:
A glorious last few days spent with the little one. :) Friday night after work, my Mom set up a little chocolate cake with some candles for my birthday. Wasn't sure how my son was going to react, so when he started to try and blow out the candles as soon as it came close to him, I think he must have some familiarity with the event. :) It was so cute. ^_^ Then I had some friends from out of town staying for the weekend, and he immediately took to them, so that was a big plus. We spent the weekend taking him on walks, feeding the ducks, playing around, and generally having lots of fun. My parents brought him back down Sunday morning, and I got all weepy. :P It was a good, if absolutely exhausting, week and I look forward to the next time I get to see him. Hopefully it won't be too long.

On a related note, due to an unfortunate misunderstanding at the Legal Aid crowd, starting the legal process has been delayed. Grabbing the cert that'll let me be seen today though, so things should pick up again soon, for better or worse.


MAn, I love 'Tales of Arabian Nights' boardgame. It's magnificent, I even managed to get a character killed (Sinbad got drowned at sea) which is nearly impossible - just cannot play it too often lest you learn how to escape from prison.

Steam:
A few people have been linked, and a few games have been claimed, but many more remain! Come one, come all! Play well and often! :D

I know, right? :D I didn't get killed, but I did go insane and become a Gool on my fourth game. It's really hilarious at times. Due to how frustrating being imprisoned is, I don't mind the fact that I've learned a few of the ways to get free. :P

My experience has always been the opposite. I imagine that's in part because I'm only a few steps shy of truly nocturnal and in part because I don't drink.

Aye, I imagine that makes a difference alright. :) I don't drink much either, but when I know I have to rise early (say, due to work), and go to bed late anyways, I reckon it's more the tempting night, and the fun times it contains, rather than the morning's fault. :P Still, I'm an eternally early riser, so that probably skews my perspective. :)

I don't really have much option to be honest. I can't go to bed early unless I'm sick or drop-dead exhausted - I'm too naturally nocturnal, my mind doesn't start winding down until midnight at the earliest. And that's what keeps me up more often than not: my brain refusing to shut up and to sleep. Thankfully a combination of allergy medication and melatonin supplements has chased off my insomnia for about the past year, so I've had very few "just can't sleep" issues since, but it still doesn't change the fact I can't simply call it a night early.

Any attempt to go to sleep too much earlier just results in me tossing and turning until I hit the time where I'd normally start falling asleep anyway... if not later due to the anxiety of whatever I'm needing to go to bed early for keeping me awake.

I had to take a sleep aid just to zonk out an hour early last night, on top of my usual array of meds. I normally don't resort to that but I consider this week to be a worthy exception.

No, I don't. I'm realistic enough about myself to know it is a failing. Probably like how much I post on this topic at a stretch. It looks like it's incredibly disruptive. I should post less...

I dunno, man, your response looked fine to me. Here, take this Chillaxe, and try to enjoy the friendly atmosphere. :)

Also, good to know I'm not the only new face worrying about that sometimes. No one's kicked us out yet, we're probably in the clear. :P

We never kick anyone out. Why do you think we let Cosmo post in here?

In other news, I finally - after three weeks of waiting, and calling them up yesterday to gripe - received my consumer report from the credit company. Not that I'll be able to do anything about it until late tonight.

In better news, I also have put in for some "unclaimed funds" the county claims they have in my name. Not sure how long that'll take to get processed, but it's apparently my mutual funds from when I was little that were supposed to get used for college; it's about $2200 that'll likely now go to paying off this standing debt and a few months of rent once I can move out.


Anywho, I should be responsible and zombie-shuffle my way to working. I'll likely be on and off the boards all day. Later FAWTLfolk.

Harsh sleeping patterns, dude. You have my sympathies. And a 6 am start on top. Yeck. Good luck with the week ahead.

Also, apologies if I came off as picking at ya. Just a (poor) attempt at casual conversation was all.


Nah, you're fine =) I know my sleeping patterns are unusual, so I'm kind of used to having to explain the situation a little. No offense taken.

My normal up-time is 7. This week however it's 5 - 6 is when I have to be at the office >_<

A few glimmers of hope on the job search front. I just completed a brief phone screen for a job near Detroit. I have another phone interview for a job near Chicago. I have a face to face to interview for a job near Houston on Thursday.

All good, except I really am waiting for a callback for a second interview for another job near Houston that sounds really great. Fingers crossed.

Glad for the good news and good luck with all the interviews, particularly the Houston one. :) *fingers crossed*


Fire drill to be happening somewhere in the next two hours. Wish they could be more specific than that.

And done. Glad it didn't hit while I was in the restroom or something. Knee aches from going down five floors of stairs though.

Fire drill sounds like it's something this guy should be doing.

I know around my way they are legally required to inform staff that a fire drill will be occurring and to state very clearly that it is indeed a drill, primarily because of the nature of the population here.

Nah. I don't like brain-puppies since the 2nd edition monster manual picture...

Brain ooze appeals to me a lot more.

Yeah, they informed us in advance that it would be happening, just not the specific time.

My parents set it up when I was a kid, and money's been going into it and building interest since. Apparently it ticked over sometime in my twenties and has been trying to get to me ever since.

Apparently being unable to fall asleep until midnight or later is considered strange by the majority of the population. Who'd'a thunk?

On an unrelated note I have a theory that Cosmo has a script that runs and finds every mention of his name on the boards so that he can favorite them. This is another test of that.

See, I think they're weird for going to bed so early. But then I'm another night owl and have learned to function on very little sleep when I am forced to get up before the hideous light of the day star crosses the horizon. And I see nothing natural about this whole diurnal business...especially when it starts about the time I want to be going to bed. :)

That was how I was before I had to be up for 8 AM jobs. Back when I either wasn't working or was working second-shift, I'd crash around 2-4 AM and sleep til 10 or 11. That seems to be my natural sleep cycle; pushing it back to midnight is about the earliest I seem to be able to manage.

Yep, that's my natural sleep schedule as well. But even when I have to get up at 7, I can't get to bed before 1 or 2. And earlier than that...well, I just plan on naps. Going to bed at midnight required too much medication. And melatonin does bad things to me. 1 mg of melatonin knocks me out like a light for a minimum eight hours. Not in a good way. In the if I happen to conk out in the hallway that's where I'll sleep and no one can wake me kind of way. Apparently I must not produce much of this stuff naturally...
