This was a triumph. I'm making a note here - OK, I won't go there.
Yeah, couldn't get online properly for a little while there. Already got a lot to catch up on - I think I've got several thousand submissions to get through on FA, but that can wait until I give a shit. For now, I think I'll watch Blood Diamond again, because I can't find anything else good.
Now, don't be mad, but I've been playing a lot of ArmA2 lately instead of writing. Finally managed to get some basic scripting to work in the editor, and the game's playtime has shot right up. Downloaded a whole bunch of crap for it too.
You know, I actually had planned to do a review/comparison of several tactical FPS games, and I think I will. If nothing else, it's good journal fodder. Speaking of that, though, I have quite a few pre-written journals/rants I was going to post online, but... I've been fairly unmotivated of late. I actually strongly suspect the fact I barely got paid anything in the last week; I have no reason or desire to go out, and my creative drive has mostly been going towards trying to learn how to make missions/scripts in ArmA2.
Which is, obviously, bad. I could be writing or learning how to script something actually useful.
And isn't this a great country? Went to the local cafe the other day, got myself a coffee. On the way back, got called over to a bench by these two guys, early-mid thirties, and they just gave me a bottle of Wild Turkey and cola pre-mix. We talked for a bit, and one of the guys was clearly off his face on speed (the drug, that is) before I had to leave.
Funny thing is, I barely touched the booze and in fact poured it out when I got home - not that I was ungrateful or anything, but I've seriously cut back on the alcohol and didn't anticipate being called over by a high demolitions workman to share in a carton of warm bourbon and cola. Tried to save it for when I was in the mood, but the mood never came.
Mind you, this happens a surprising amount for me. I don't even consider myself that sociable a person, but almost all the time I go to a pub or whatnot by myself, especially at university, I get called over by some random folk. Keeps things interesting, I guess, but a bit of a pain when I just want to sit on my arse for some quiet time - despite this, I found the university bar (oh yes, we have those here) was very conducive to study during the day. But, again, I haven't been going anywhere of late, definitely not to drink.
Don't worry though, I haven't gone insane. Next pay day, I think I'll stock up on some Guinness or local microbrews. Or maybe Hoegaarden. I dunno, something tasty!
Got a few things to do, including update a few things on SoFurry and IB, but that presupposes I don't get distracted by movies.
