My mom got hacked on Facebook and someone made a clone account of hers. She's all freaked out about it.

This should be a fun night sorting that out when I get home from work.

I've seen it before... but it's good one!

Weather here is bleak today. Cold. Damp. Drizzly.

Spent the day puttering around my house, trying to pick up where I left off on my cleaning and organizing project. And giving my mom's laptop a thorough security sweep.

Her cloned account is still out there... but it's been reported so many times now eventually they'll have to do something about it.

Taking a video game break now. I feel I deserve it.

Took a long hike in the woods today. I was the only human for miles. So quiet and peaceful.

Watching a speed run marathon. Final Fantasy IV completed in 2 hours and 20 minutes. That's insane.

I now have a full set of teeth again (minus the ones pulled to make room) with a new crown put in today. woo. Also two fillings done, out of the 10 needed. Ten years of no dental care can do that.

Just had a break through on the Card game I have been wanting to make dealing with sword fighting. I want to recreate a better ebb and flow of the game, and create a game of maneuver. Who knows eventually I could have swords and shield, duel weapons, and even lightsabers!

I feel like I've been working for a month straight...

How can this be only my 2nd shift this week... with more than half the week to go?

The last 2 days were spent with a very loud, very fast band. They are great... but that many notes played that aggressively at that volume in the past 48 hours was kind of exhausting.

These guys,.. if you're interested...

I'll believe it when I have the game box in my hands.

Even if there are games made with this (these?) titles, it doesn't mean it will be anything I want to buy anyhow.

If it turns out to be a real space flight sim, perhaps with the name Lawrence Holland attached, or an updated Rogue Squadron/ Leader type game for the modern consoles, I would definitely pick it up... otherwise, I'd have to think about it.

I wish I were more excited about the future of the Star Wars franchise, and I'm genuinely pretty shocked that I'm not... but nothing about the current info coming out has really filled me with warm fuzzy feelings or any kind of anticipation.

As they say: "I have a bad feeling about this..."

I hope I'm pleasantly surprised... but for now, my gut is telling me not to get any hopes up.

15, your posts here are often pretty bi-polar.

I mean: 24 hours ago you were thrilled to have a new paintball gun.

im almost home...but i dont want to get home and have the whole world disappoint me, and im thinking that that is inevitable. i hate the thought of being neglected...to top that off my car i bought already broke down hoping all it needs is a battery. also i put on so much freaking weight here it sucks...went from 175 to 215. crazy annoying, i hate being fat and i can tell other people look at me like im a ****ing joke...that gets annoying and adds to the depression.

but then i take a step back and take a deep breath and think of all the good things i have going for me...

not having to work when i get home
paintball
hiking
running
kayaking
swimming
fishing
hunting
ranges

though without people to do that with on a daily basis other than on weekends, i'll end up annoyed and angry at life.

i kinda set myself up for this though, not having to go work and having alot of free time to do college and workout. trying to stay positive and think of how i can become a better person or soldier.

also i'm planning on staying away from alcohol besides when i go on vacation to ocmd, going to see if i can keep that out of my system since it usually drains my pocket and leaves me even more depressed (sometimes, not all the time).

That idea of getting back together never struck me as a great one anyway. You are probably much better with a fresh, clean start rather than trying to undo and wash away the mistakes and bad feelings of the past and patch together something where you both might be happy with the situation.

That's always a tall order... and it's rare that it works out all for the best.

I said on FB that bowling was a really fickle game. Last week, I had my worst league game in years (a 112...some of you could have beaten me w/ that score); this week, my second 250 game of the summer (which I know most of you aren't beating).

Someday, maybe when I retire. I want to paddle the entire length of the Mississippi. Takes about 6 months. But the nice thing is, you can camp out on sandbars, and there are many places for resupply along the way.
