Scattered Thoughts

Biting your tongue hurts. Especially in the middle of singing in the car. Thank goodness I didn't actually have to pay attention to driving for a minute there.

I can see how people look down, they're on the outside ...

Headsets are fun. Headsets combined with soundcards that apply echo effects to simulate large enclosed spaces with walls of varying materials are uber-fun.

My family got my nice schwag. Radiata Stories, Suikoden Tactics, and X-Men Legends 2 (for some multiplayer mutant madness!). All that on top of Ninja Gaiden Black and I'm set for games for some time to come.

Finally made my first trip into Blackrock Depths in Warcraft. I took pictures [I'll post them later] of Blackrock-related signs on our trip to Skyline Drive, because there really are places on Skyline Drive with Blackrock in the title, and I figured it would be a funny reference. Have I mentioned I'm easily amused?

Successful procrastination and impending doom are occasionally covered for by lapses in other people's judgement. Never miss the opportunity to save your butt that way, but never be overly grateful!

Mouse + glue trap = unnerving rattling noises from odd places

What do you do when introspection is going to give you no good answers? Avoidance theory, that's about it. Mood control. Apply music liberally.

Phones are not my friends. They never seem to be, but I must admit I disrespect them way too often.

I've been sleeping on memes lately. I've considered a few, but never quite jumped on board. Perhaps I should disavow that actively.

Maybe.

Again, you've totally hit the nail on the head in terms of where I am right now. :) I think I'm going to go back to my "the unexamined life is worth living" mode for awhile now. ;)

Everyone needs to "ride the flow" and find value in now from time to time. Rediscovering the simple pleasures of your everyday life, or making sure to pay attention to them. This is just one of those times. Keep it a conscious decision and it's not plain old ignorance (which is only bliss until you pay the price for it).

wow
Is this what's its really like to live in your head? Its like a ping-pong ball on acid bouncing against invisible walls - one cryptic thought bounces to another random incomplete thought, bounces to another unrelated obscure thought.....

It makes me dizzy! :)

Re: wow
Fairly close to life in my head. Throw in the movie-quality daydreams and mental images and one hell of a soundtrack, and you've got the personal theater experience minus the popcorn.

And there are usually connections in my mental jumps. Some of those thoughts were connected. Half of them were boiled down from earlier in the day. Maybe next time I'll point out the only-half-logical connections next time I post like that.

I think my brain only truly stops when I pass out, because I know that even on the edge of sleep my mind is racing. Some nights I've gotten stuck thinking about some topic that bothers me, and it has kept me from falling asleep. If I ever find a way around that besides getting that off the top of my mind with videogames/logic puzzles/reading, I'll be a happy man.
