Sleeping a bit
Wow. It seems that I was sick or something. I wasn't feeling very well for most of yesterday and it just got worse in the evening. Finally I went to bed and slept for fourteen hours. That's pretty much unheard of for me; I must've been sick or something. The most impressive thing is that neither my back nor my hip hurt. Usually if I sleep eight hours or more, I will be in pain. No pain this time.

Still a bit fuzzy brain and my eyes still feel allergic or something but definitely feeling much better.

Life and Dance

On Sunday, my work went quickly and so Christina and I were able to go dancing at ecstatic dance.  It was very good; lots and lots of drums and so it was very danceable from my standpoint.  The three other times I've been to ecstatic dance, the music was less thumpy and more wavy.  While nice, this isn't the best for me and dancing.

One amusing bit was that people actually danced around me as if I was a tree.  Considering that's how people have described my dancing, I was pleased.

Later, after dancing, we went to Zöeyogurt.  I was told this was my first real froyo.  I had mint mixed with apple pie and peanut butter & graham.  It's a good thing we don't live closer to Greenlake.

friday night

So, after a relatively short software deploy for work, I spent the rest of the night leveling up my dranei death knight Darkchin from 78 to 81.  I'm going through Mt. Hyjal a second time and I'm enjoying it.  But then it's some of my favorite quests in the game.  It's been a long while since I've done something like this and it was fun.

Yes, this is WoW.  I finally got pulled in.  You can blame beamishboy and der zilla if such amuses you.

Using Livejournal vs using Dreamwidth
Yes, I am trying to post a bit more. I was investigating using Dreamwidth instead of Livejournal but I'm continuing to use Livejournal for two reasons: 1) Livejournal will automatically repost my entries to Facebook where most people seem to've migrated to while Dreamwidth can only post to other LJ clones. 2) There is an android client for Livejournal that lets me easily post from my phone. To do this with Dreamwidth, I'd have to do a mail-in post which is much less convenient.

The idealist and the politician want to post using Dreamwidth but practical matters keep me using Livejournal for now.

Meeting People
So, yes, I'm trying to post here more. Let's see if I can continue.

I was meeting up with omnifarious on Sunday to talk about some technical things and ended up overlapping a meeting he was having with a fellow named Lion Kimbro. Very interesting fellow. I asked him for his e-mail address. He gave me that, his phone number, a rough sketch of a lion, and a list of concepts: New Societies, Creativity, Science, Python, Imagination, Sex/Free Love, Esoterics, Meaning, Comics, Joy, Ideals, Reality and two societies to investigate: Damanhur and Tamera.

Except for the python, that could be a good list for me. I suspect that we're going to connect up a lot more and get to know each other much better.

Pies and Pints tonight
Went to Pies and Pints to celebrate Brennan's birthday. I'd been there once before but it was about four years ago and I don't really remember it.

The crowd was gregarious and we moved around a lot. The wait staff took this in stride and dealt with us never really being in the same place twice. The lighting and the seating were both pretty good and it wasn't too loud.

I had both the Battered Fish & Chips and the Classic Chicken Pot Pie. The fish and chips were quite good, better than I get most places, properly english battered. Perfect to me would be for it to have more curliques and such in the batter but it was very good. The pot pie was just about perfect even if it seemed a bit small. It was filling but I still wish it was larger.

What was truly surprising was that I rather liked their porter, Dick's Lava Rock Porter. I usually like beer to be thicker but this was good enough for me to have a second glass.

All in all, we had lots of fun. Met up with a number of people that I know and even met some new nifty people.

Hi!

Bright days

I can appreciate other people's appreciation of a bright day.  I can especially appreciate people wearing less because it is warm.  I just can't appreciate the bright and warm myself...

Gaming Night is on Monday the 7th at 7p.

It was pointed out that next game night would be on Valentine's Day and that just wouldn't work. So, we've moved it back one week. Hope to see you there.

Bleh. I have something that I'm told isn't strep throat but sucks anyway. I crashed right after work and I think I'll go crash again...

Doing something about filters...
I'm going to implement a heavy woo-woo filter. This will be a place where I talk about some topics that are rather strongly on the mystical/magical side of things. I'm mostly writing this down for my own amusement but you can read and comment if you want to. If you can see this message, then you are on the heavy woo-woo filter.

I've also got a work-bitch filter but it gets very little exercise. You can read about the work-bitch filter here and see if you are on it here.

Poll #197378 filters
Open to: Friends, detailed results viewable to: None, participants: 235

You can change your entries here if you need to.

If you have an LJ but I've not friended you and you want to read these things, leave a comment or send me an e-mail and we'll see what we can do.

Note that if you leave a comment saying that you've commented, I'll comment back and tell you that you've been added. If you don't, I'll eventually check the filters and add you but won't mention anything.

Reminder about gaming tonight
Just a reminder that we are having gaming tonight at 7p. We expect to be playing Dune, either 1 or 2 games or possibly Arkham Horror. This is the make-up day for John's Birthday game-day that was snowed out.

Gaming night here on Monday November 22nd at 7p
Gaming night is happening Monday night the 22nd at 7p. Note that this will be a little different. It's John's birthday at we're playing Dune starting at 7p so we get done at a reasonable time. I hear rumors that there might also be an Arkham Horror game but I don't know if that will come to pass. You may need to get there early to get a spot. There will not be a light game to start with but launching immediately into these games.

Contact me if you need details on getting here.

Gaming Night at the new place on Monday November 8th at 7p
Contrary to previous plans, we're having gaming tomorrow night the 8th instead of being out at the peninsula.
If you're not familiar with how to get to the new place, send me an e-mail and I'll get you directions. We're not fully moved in but we'll be moved in enough to have games.

It's Gaming Night at the new place on Monday, October 25th at 7.00p.

There is a lot of space, so we'll even be able to have multiple games without them colliding into each other. Yay!

Note that many people _haven't_ played the games we have. Most of them are not overly complex and some can be taught on the fly. We do teach the rules before we play, so don't worry if the games aren't familiar.

It's okay to show up a little late to his since we usually play something light first, waiting for folks to show up.

Please feel free to show up. Bring snacks if you'd like although some snacks will be provided.

Moving to the new place!
Sorry it's been so long since I've posted here.

What's even worse is that I'm posting as a call for help with Moving.

We're moving on the 10th of July into our new house and we'd love to have you help. :)

Please bring your bodies and your vehicles. Trucks especially welcome. We'll be meeting at 10.30 at the current place to move things to the new place. We've been packed for a while so it will just be moving stuff from one place to the next.

We look forward to having gaming nights and other parties at the new place. Finally, we'll have a place to do these things. Yay!
