So, the 'Rents went away for a night or two. (I think it's only one night, but I'm not precisely sure). Meaning that tonight, I'm here alone. Tomorrow night, I'll be up with Sara, so it won't matter if the 'Rents are here or not. Did I mention I'm alone at the moment?

I hate being in the house alone at night. I suppose that makes me a big ol'wimp. It's just...the house is big, and I can't hear from one end to the other, and there always seem to be more noises (like the house settling, etc) when I'm here by myself. God, I'm such a dork. I'm 23 years old, and I get unnevered by the thought of being alone in my own home.

Oddly, staying alone in my apartment at school never bothered me. In fact, sometimes, I prefered it. (Big git of a roomie...) Of course, I was never broken into twice at my apartment at school. That might have something to do with it.

I've discovered a wonderful thing in the past several days. DosBox. It's a computer program that simulates a DOS interface, and allows you to play all those old, glorious DOS based games on your suped up Windows computer. Carriers at War, oh how I missed you! TIE fighter, my old friend! Oh happy day!

On a sour note, I've discovered these things because my muse has abandoned me. DTR has unfortunetly, for the moment, spun into a talespin of awkward phrasing and stalled ideas. I've got multiple characters screaming for time on the page, and new ones creeping in like invasive water vines and choaking out the rest. Hopefully, Sara will get me straightened out over the weekend.

Anyway, I'm off to see if I can get SimFarm running on DosBox. Later all!

Holy Cow!

Okay...job interview...went OK. I think they're going to end up hiring someone who has more Special Ed experiance, given what they told me about the job, but it was good to have an interview experiance under my belt.

Heat wave...was drowning in my own sweat this week, up until this morning when the heat finally broke. Except for the clouds, today was nice. Work has been rough the past couple of days, being in the sun and all. All I've wanted to do for the past several days is sit in air conditioning and sleep.

Defining the Relationship is underway, finally. Reviews are starting to trickle in, and I'm pleased. Other than that, I'm concerned by the loss of the chatbox over at PhonenixSong. I really enjoyed it. It's too bad a few people had to spoil it for the rest of us. Not mentioning any names, but I have a pretty good idea of who those people might be.

Been fighting with comptuers all day. First Sara's brand new laptop has issues, spend part of the afternoon on the phone with Gateway, and then the REST of the afternoon on the phone with Dell concerning my sister's laptop, which gives her the blue screen of death whenever she tries to unplug the A/C adapter when the thing's turned on. Talk about stupid. Anyway, trying to figure that out. Still no answers from Dell. They suck.

And finally, to the heart of the matter. Sara scored Red Sox tickets in a raffle at work! Whohoo! Third base line, box seats. These are $80 seats! Game's tomorrow, against the Reds. It's a little dissapointing that it's interleauge, but hey, we're going, right? And the Reds have the worst ERA in baseball, so there's a good chance we'll win. I'm so freakin psyched!

Dinner time! Peace!
