2006-09-26: Life should be more relaxed
by Meguey

And there should be more time in it.

I have all these things I want to write about, like:

the connection between women and violence,


how things have changed for me since publishing a game,


what's the deal with the spy/valkyrie split,


reflections on aging,


what it must be like to love someone for 66 years,


thoughts on my new game



but instead I have to wash dishes and clean the catbox and drive all over getting stuff that we seem to need and somehow find a new car in the process.


Tonight it's not a good night for me. I'd stay up late, but that'd just make me more tired tomorrow.

Stupid dishes. :)

what's the deal with the spy/valkyrie split

I'm full of curiousity about that.

Well, I hope the new car search started well. At the very least.

What or who are spy and valkyrie?

So... you're not playing Sign In Stranger? Or you are, and are going to regret it?

in: the spy/valkyrie split

out: the pirate/ninja war

I hear ya.  I've got a similar list that's being pre-empted by O/T at work, landscaping that's been dragging on due to rain, replacing flat tires, and so on...

I've written about a half dozen pages total since GenCon, and it's majorly bumming me out.

Paul, I totally needed that smile :)

I get hours at a time holding a sleeping baby, which gives me at most one hand free. I can surf and research and draw pixel dolls, but not write. Maybe next week there'll be time.

(NinJ - no, Sign in Stranger was cool. Creepy in places, but fun; some typing.)

I know what you mean, except on my part it's usually malaise/laziness that stops me from writing the hundreds of pages that lurk in my head.
