    Let's celebrate the 1000th TNL Blog post.

    I've driven out some distractions yesterday and have managed to go without them for the remainder of the day today, which is good, but is only a first step.

    Unfortunately I've felt pretty tired today regardless and I think I'm going to call an early night yet again in hopes that my Tuesday doesn't solely consist of sleep. I have one more new idea written down and I'll need to figure out how to make SketchUp work part of my daily ...

    Standard work day. First half was spending a lot of time on counts, which entailed me spending a lot of time carefully rearranging little plastic containers of Crystal Light, as well as taking a tally of one specific kind of Chap Stick among all of the front registers; and a second half of me working on unloading a trailer. This latter portion should have started right when I came off of lunch, but it wasn't set up in time for whatever reason, and me helping to get it to that point was an exercise ...

    GTA5 stock market fun - I start the game up before my wife comes home for lunch and I look over to see that Wiz is at $1.02 or so, and I haven't seen it or much of any other stock lower than $2, so I go all in with everyone. We do stuff, I go on with the rest of my day. We have dinner, get back on for a bit more, and I look over at the market again; turns out that Wiz dropped to $0.47 before it climbed back up to $0.97 when I was looking. Swell. I guess I'll just try to hold on until it's $1.50 ...

    Today's photo tour was a pretty good time. I didn't get any incredible rush of crippling nostalgia or onset of suppressed memories. The autumn air was cold and crisp but thankfully dry, and being in the area felt more generally familiar and comfortable than anything else. Though I did have to reflect on realizing that when I encountered the janitor at the old school, the words "I went to school here thirty years ago" came out of my mouth. That's probably the moment when I most strongly ...

    Some of today's free time was spent at my parent's place so that I could see my mother tend to my sister's child. She's three months old now, and seems to be growing healthy so far. She's still immobile and won't crawl, but I don't think that's supposed to happen quite so soon. Otherwise, she seems pretty normal and if anything a bit benign in not crying so very loudly that it splits the eardrums or at the drop of a hat. I was able to hold her for some long stretches (enough to wait to have some ...

    On my days of slothenly long sleep, I find it very difficult to actually get out of bed once I'm at the point where I know I am awake and will not resume sleeping more. I know it's contrary to what many fine people have said, in that I should immediately spring out of bed once I'm awake and get on with the rest of my day, but the gravity of the mattress is so great that I find the pull irresistible. Not to mention the wonderful feeling of being off of my legs, which always seem to have a sensation ...

    Thanks to some temporary payroll hour restrictions at retail work, I had some upcoming days in which I was not scheduled where I normally am, and my wife logged onto the site for me a while ago to determine that the coming Friday and subsequent Monday would be two such days. As it turns out, though, it was today that was one of the Mondays which I was not scheduled, so imagine our surprise when I went through the normal morning routine and arrive at the place to make that discovery. Fortune had ...

    The Everstreets draft entries that I write here are separated from the rest of these blog posts and posted on a seperate blog page that I keep here: http://everstreets.blogspot.com . Yesterday marked the 100th entry to that blog domain, and in consideration of that and other things, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on it.

    There are some days where I definitely struggled to get a few hundred words down and while I feel like I have things that I want to get established, the process ...

    My immediate supervisor is a grandmother at age fifty or so I think, and while we were both on lunch, she was flipping through an issue of Cosmopolitan and was totally scandalized by some of the content in the articles. After other people in the room asked her, it seems that she managed to go through her entire life until today never having read the magazine or hearing about it second hand, and had no idea what the magazine was about. It made for a good laugh.

    I guess I should possibly ...

    Portal. Red Dead Redemption. Journey. Fallout 3. The Last of Us. Street Fighter 4. World of Warcraft. Spelunky. Dark Souls. Super Mario Galaxy. These are the games featured in Eurogamer's Games of the Generation series, the last article of which was posted today.

    How many of these ten games did I play? Zero.

    Portal? FPS, pass. RDR? Eh, I've played GTA4 and 5 plenty, and nothing about the theme compelled me to care. Journey? I get the impression that watching a movie ...

    I forgot to commemorate yesterday's 777th blog entry to Finch. Alas, the figure will be gone once this is posted.

    What I usually do for Halloween candy duty is sit outside and have a boom box set up behind me, so that it can play a CD that I make with most of the tracks from the Dracula Battle Perfect Selection albums, and a few other Castlevania related songs. Throughout all of last night and most of today, there was enough rain to keep things wet with puddles to be found everywhere. ...

    Two years ago, my wife obtained a 1.5TB hard drive which was given to me as a Christmas gift for use in my older Win XP machine that I used to play Lunatic Rave and MAME. I was running out of space to hold all of the various BMS and ROM files on the machine and requested to get that at the time when getting HDDs was still a relatively expensive process thanks to that storm which hit Thailand at the time. The PC eventually became useless, so the HDD was never put to use. Today, the drive has finally ...

    I should stop having Tuesdays like this, where I sleep in for the majority of the day and feel adrift and aimless once the motions of dinner and post-dinner gaming are done. It turns a week of four days work with three days rest into a five day routine week with two days of ultimate freedom.

    Draft.

    Uneventful work day past (well, relatively uneventful; a coworker was finally fired today after months of it potentially happening), dinner consumed, games played, a shot of Black Label down, a beer in hand, and I sit here ready to write for the remainder of the evening. Then one of our two cats strolls by, this one being the cat who's a wannabe maine coone in that he has a normal sized body but the fluffy coat and poofy tail of the larger breed. This means that there are some very special times ...

    Today's retail work included another half day of truck unloading duty. Apparently, it was a surprise for two shipments to come in today, and they were shorthanded for the task. Oh well.

    Beyond that, I felt very tired throughout the day and felt no rush to do anything after getting home and having dinner. One of the cats came in here and monopolized a hand for petting, and took up nearly an hour that I could have spent doing something other than sitting here and reading bullshit. The ...
