Cabin fever is fun!
It's odd, I can go weeks without seeing people normally. I've lived on a rectory on a hill while Father Joe was away for weeks. I've gone weeks as a shut-in before, without going batty. But today, I'm just crawling up the walls. It seems everyone else is snowed in. At least that's made for interesting phone and AIM conversations, some of those with people I haven't talked to in ages. I've played a couple of games I haven't picked up in ages, caught up with a few things I've meant to read or do, and meditated.

And watched lots of crap television, or had it in the background. Short Circuit 2, every episode of Family Ties with Tom Hanks, whatever.

This is the worst summary of a movie I've seen yet. If I click ``INFO'' while watching Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, the following blurb appears:

``Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome'': Mel Gibson, Tina Turner (1985)
Aunty Entity will return Mad Max's camels if he fights the giant
Blaster in a barbaric caged arena. (107 minutes)... (PG13)***

Wilco tango foxtrot? Two men enter, one crappy summary leaves. That's like saying that the greatest of the three was ``Mad Max will save his dog if he can break into an oil pumping compound'' Seriously, WTF?

Someone call me before I start working on my memoirs again or something. It's a Saturday night. Take a train to Hoboken and I'll give you food, liquor, non-alcoholic drink, electronic entertainment, and a gorgeous view of a city covered with snow. If I'm left to my own devices, I'll be sitting in the dark writing letters to Bea Arthur, debating her role in Star Wars. Seriously.

Feeling: lonely lonely
Listening to: I'm the guy who carries Mr. Dead in his pocket.

I believe you meant "whiskey tango foxtrot" vice "wilco."

Wilco is not, in fact, used on the circuits in a military setting. "Roger wilco" is completely redundant, in fact.

You shall be flogged with a wet noodle as appropriate.

There's a sheet of all the letters up in my boss (blackbytes)'s office, as well as by the Helpdesk. I'm quite familiar with Whiskey being the proper and true letter to use for W. However, when I use W, people often question it or make an alcohol joke. So to avoid that train of thought and to bow to peer pressure, I use the incorrect Wilco Tango Foxtrot instead of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. I expected the uncivilizied ninnyhammers in my journal not to correct me. I assumed incorrectly, and apologize.

Yeah, you're another person who should've visited me. It was pretty warm here today. In fact, I didn't need a jacket when I was outside before watching the motorcyclists with teddy bears pour down the street and up to the hospital a few hours ago.

I'm lonely too. Except I have to write a huge final project due Tuesday, one day before I brave the skies and fly to CT hoping that my flight doesn't get delayed/cancelled. Argh.

Bikers with teddy bears? That rocks!

Yeah, I should have visited, I really should visit the Pacific Northwest sometime. Portland, Seattle, Victoria, all the big spots.

So, last I saw, you were a maybe for a certain party. What are the odds of you making it?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: December 6th, 2003 07:18 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Oh yeah...

A) You should be working on your project.

B) Remember when I got all cloak and dagger in your comments? More crafy than Poirot and shit? It's all clear now, no worries, I'll explain the next time I see you.

Re: Oh yeah...

*responding to both at once*

Not sure about the party. Believe me, I want to go as Larsson parties are the only way I get to see Drew people anymore, and after this I'll not be back on the east coast until at least June. The biggest problem with the 20th is that we hadn't been planning on driving down to NJ until a few days later, probably around the 23rd. I suppose his parents wouldn't *mind* us crashing there earlier than planned (provided they get enough notice) but I don't know. Also depends on how Mike feels about driving then :) And yeah, y'know, being that I only get to see Mike for limited times nowadays, I kind of like having alone time with him as well. As great as his parents are and all, we both prefer spending time at his place than with his parents.

And I am working on my project. I'm over 2/3 of the way done. I've developed severe workaholic tendencies since I've lived out here.. partially because I currently don't have much better to do. This is just one of my many study breaks :) But hey, I figure as long as the work gets done on time, and done well, who cares how many breaks I take? :)

Finally, yeah, I'm curious what that was all about. It intrigued me..

Yeah, I can understand wanting alone time. LTRs are never easy, I can sympathize.

Larsson has talked about pushing it back a week, but then my brother will be in town.. and he's only been in town once since January of 1995.

If you're that curious about what it was all about, you could IM Kingfoxninja on AIM or email me a number in the US or Canada to call.

Let it snow ... rrrrr

I feel lonely three. I have a huge French project due Monday, and everyone's at the holiday ball while I'm dorking it up. Only I'm mentally fried and feeling totally apathetic. But yes, I sympathize with your descent into the world of workaholism, cuz I'm so there. When're you crashing Jersey?

We get the best of both worlds out here. Over a foot of snow, and humid days over one hundred degrees Fahrenheit.
