There is a kiddie park in DC that has a zipline. I am jealous that I never had one of those when I was a kid. I'd never stop going on it. Some people feel the same it seems. They also had liquid courage to go to the park.
It is my birthday! I am celebrating your lucky fortune to have me around. Some friends have asked what they could get me. I always respond with that gifts are not needed. Just having ya'll in my life is enough. It sometimes works, other times people still insist. I rather just hang out. We are adults. I don't need material things... at least I don't need you to buy me stuff...
Uber has really expanded. They were dilvering toiletries, kittens, and now food.
remember when someone tried to get a pizza delivered and went to the store to get a ride with the delivery guy went? Pepperidge farms (and this guy) does. Now, all your life needs can be at a app request touch.
keep it pubs
It was St Paddy's day yesterday. That means lots of people boozing and eating tasty noms. It also usually means a good business day for irish pubs. Some business get jealous of the ONE day other businesses do well. Certain members of FYN think that is crap...
The Rock and Roll Marathon in DC happened this past Saturday. I happen to wake up early so I took apex to go watch the runners and cheer them on. I had planned to go for a long run with the dog at some point over the weekend. I think she got the wrong idea when I got her leash. When she realized the mistake, she was not happy with me. She glared at me and pouted the whole day. I needed a nap. I was up every night watching the google alphago play Lee Sedol go matches. Yeah, I didn't go running that day...
Since Magfest, I've been exhausted. Just straight up exhausted. Work has been part of it, and upping my running too. But, I think I just needed to recharge. A lot of people don't see the introverted side of me, but I am just slightly more introverted and it does come and hit me on occasion. i just snap more and have a short fuse. I usually have pretty good patience, but when I'm feeling burned out....
Occasionally when out, I get hit on. It doesn't happen often, and even on occasion it is a female! Most times, it ends up being a guy. It is totally flattering (hell, anytime I get hit on I'm always surprised and flattered). One of the issues is that I am usually clueless as to when someone is hitting on me. The other issue, is that a lot of times it happens when I just want to go home. on the few occasions it has happened, and I either am oblivious and ignore it or turn down someone, they feel slighted... I'm not trying to lead on anyone!
I have a crap short term memory. If it doesn't make a serious impact on me, there is a good chance it'll slip my mind. If reminded, I'll totally remember (isn't that how being reminded work?). A lot of times something will happen or I'm somewhere and it'll just pop back up. Good news is that it doesn't require a lot to make an impact on me. Bad news is if I forgot, now you know. Or I had some bevs (isn't that how that works too?). Sometimes, i forget some things when I'm having conversations too...
For magfest, I brought my x-wing minis to play with friends. I brought em in the trunk I usually use for my warhammer stuff. That meant I had to pull out all my 40k minis. So, those were strewn about throughout my office, on top of all the fabric and scraps from working on cosplays. So my office was pretty wrecked the past 2 weeks. I Went out on sunday to get a frame for a sweet certificate I got and a replacement zipper for my jacket (which reminds me i gotta swap that still). s I was walking around michaels, I saw that they had new star wars trunks (my 40k stuff are in a vader trunk) which obviously I needed. It just made sense to keep the theme and it worked even better for the x-wing stuff. Needless to say, I then picked up organizers and a number of other items... it totally helped.
