Bring out the Funk

Thanks to all my friends who put up with my funk this weekend, including a hilarious tweet from Brenda and Nik about who brings the noise, and who brings the funk. It made my night.

I am very excited that my twin convinced Nik to get an xbox 360- then I convinced them to get Left 4 Dead and Rock Band 2. Muhahahaha, my evil plan is working! Of course, it just makes me want to move to Missouri someday.

So what is going on in geekdom? A few things, actually. Both Project Runway and Top Chef started last week, and I am thoroughly enjoying both of them. Team Rainbow is back in full force on Top Chef, and hopefully they can survive.

There are many new games coming out this fall, all of which having me drooling. Assassins Creed 2, Bioshock 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and my favorite, Mass Effect 2. So, that this means is that you all will NEVER see me online after 5pm, i'll be gaming.

Guiding Light is coming to an end, and with it, the Otalia storyline. I won't get into my intense dislike of the pregnancy storyline, but I still enjoy the entire show and will stick around for the ride. I also have 17 people coming to see me the weekend of September 18th, including 3 from other countries. It's going to be a huge purple dreams blast, and I can't wait.

Last but not least, I turn 30 in about 3 weeks. And no, this doesn't terrify me. I am just impressed that I lasted 30 years on this planet. Go me!

I have just been a weird mood the past couple of days, and it's finally hit me why. All my friends are so damn happy. Weird, huh?

To expand- i don't mean that happy friends piss me off- quite the contrary- I WANT my friends to be happy. I mean, who doesn't? I guess what's bothering me is that all my friends have recently become happy because they all started dating someone. *sigh* that always just puts me in a bad mood.

We hired more new people here at work, and both of them are married or in long term, committed relationships- making me ONCE AGAIN the only single person here. So, no one to hang out with, no one who wants to go try new restaurants, and sometimes what i think is worse- no one to come home to. Guess you never thought of me as a cuddler, huh? (and yes Brenda, Nik, Beth, Carolyn, and Krisana, I know this is where you tell me to move to Missouri!)

99% of the time I am ok with being single. I love my life, i have ways of doing things, and it mainly doesn't bother me. I guess it's when I see my friends all pairing off that I start to think- "What's wrong with ME? Why am I always the friend, but never the person people can see as more then that?" I guess there are various reasons.

Ok, my "woe-is-me" session is over In a few days I'll be back to my happy, go-lucky-self.

I wonder if any of my gaming friends are around tonight to distract me?

Inspired? Not so much

So Brenda has been reminding me to keep up with the writing, but to be honest, I haven't been inspired much. So when do I FINALLY think to write something? Oh yeah, that's right- the busyist month of the year for me.

I won't go into my Otalia rant, because frankly, there isn't anything to be done anymore- the show is done shooting, and now we have one month to see what is going to happen. Good or bad, it's already done. Lets just hope I don't end up throwing anything through my tv!

Short recap of the geeky things I did this summer:

1. Met up with other Otalia friends in Team Midwest in Cincy. It was a blast!

2. Went to KC to visit Brenda and the crew- also very fun and they constantly try to get me to move to Missouri.

3. Did my 13th year as a counselor at Badger Girls State. It was not the train wreck I thought it was going to be.

4. Pick back up my gaming. I was slacking a LOT during spring.

5. Yep, that's about it. Now it's time for the school year to begin again!
