Not So Cool Anymore

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Tomorrow’s Tegan’s birthday (so if you’re in contact with her, tell her happy birthday!), and we’re not really doing too much this year, so I took her and her best friend Leigh roller-skating.

It’s been a while since I’ve been skating (and it’s something I love to do and could probably do it in my sleep). When I was younger, going out to the local rink was, like, the coolest thing you could do… whether you were a kid, a teenager, or a college kid. The music rocked. Everyone had fun. Now, don’t get me wrong… I had a great time. But I noticed that the only people there were… oh, about three feet high. A couple of parents. A couple of teenagers that work there. The one freaky loner that’s actually a pretty good skater, but you don’t really want to get closed to him because he just kind of radiates weirdness. It surprised me how the skating rink just isn’t as “cool” as it used to me.

Bahh. When have I ever been one for cool? We had a great time. And I’ll try and update more often. New theme is almost ready for release!

Bah Humbug!!

It was really entertaining coming home to my loyal feed reader today after work and reading entry upon entry of “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays!”

Pardon me for being a little Scrooge-y today, but today at work I saw a lot of cranky Christmas shoppers. Seriously, everybody was grouchy, hurried, and had awful attitudes. It’s like the entire town was PMS-ing on the same day.

You’re probably thinking I’m just saying that because I don’t even celebrate Christmas, but I used to, and I noticed it then. I feel bad for God on days like these, because the entire world’s gone greedy and grouchy, and all in His name. Unfair for him!

So this Christmas, remember why it is you are all celebrating, and try to smile and be nice to people for a change. As for me? Happy Hanukkah, guys!

NaNoWriMo

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

I’ve been hearing about this NaNoWriMo thing here and there for about a month, and I’ve finally figured out what it is. It’s National Novel Writing Month. I read up on it, thought about it for a few minutes, and then I thought… What a perfect opportunity to get in gear and finish Seasons Past!

The deal is, you’ve got thirty days (the month of November) to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel. I’m sure the general idea is an entire novel, but hey, I’ve got a job and a life and I’m really not all that far into Seasons Past.

I’ll try to keep you posted this month as to how it’s going. I’m excited!
