playing in a tempo is kinda tricky. But it is pretty fun.

Those would make the game pretty interesting, I like them :)

I want to cut back drinking and quit smoking too, Twid. I think it will help my overall well being enormously. I was just about quit with both just a couple of months ago, but the breakup... yeah. Excuses.

I just right now kind of have these mileposts I want to hit. I want to build my shrine, and lay off the booze and cut smoking back to maybe two a week. I feel like, when I accomplish those, things will be way better.

Devils' advocate---why would that be much better(lay off the booze and cut smoking back to maybe two a week. ) --other than the time factor?
Just curious, is all.


Because alcohol really messes with my emotional state; for the next couple of days after I have more than two or three drinks, I have mood swings and am much more emotionally sensitive, and far more prone to impulsive outbursts.

Cigarettes just make me feel crappy.

As far as everything, in general, being much better once I've accomplished those goals, it's mostly because it will take me a couple of months to build my shrine, and if at the same time I minimize drinking and smoking, the combination of finishing the project, the passage of time, and taking good care of my body should leave me in a place where I'm feeling good about myself and am significantly over my breakup.

I hate the sense of being a slave to something, and that's basically what happens every couple of hours when you need your fix. My birthday is the cut off. I started smoking when I was 20, and I'm turning 30 this year. Risk of health problems later in life jumps after 10 years. It's a good time for me to quit.

And it does make me feel crappy too. I hate feeling winded going up a flight of stairs. I hate having a hangover ten times worse than a normal one because I ended up chain smoking after the first few drinks. And I hate that I cough a lot- which is murder on me when my allergies flare up. I hate having it mess with my singing voice, drying out my throat and making some of my notes crack. Fucking embarrassing if it's live.

Booze generally makes me feel happy and doesn't impact my overall sober mood (at least not these days- probably because I'm noticing myself getting happier anyway), and I've gotten into a pattern that needs to be cut back. Quitting smoking will help that though. I'll be forced to reduce the amount that I drink in order to not start lighting up every 15 minutes. My immediate goal is to reduce it to 4 to 5 a day, which is the equivalent of breathing city air anyway. And can help me stretch a pack out to a work week.

Plus, I'll feel like I've accomplished something and I won't have to waste my money on carcinogens.  :)

I dwell on the disappointments dished about by those around me, who couldn't be arsed to be human, or to consider me human.  So what do I do?

Why, I spend most of every day plotting ways to rid the world of all humans.

And then I write funny 2-pagers about my motivations here, and everyone gives me mittens, because...Hell, he can't be serious, right?  No, it's just that funny old reverend telling tales.

I secretly think you want to save the humans. Shhh.

In a deep freezer perhaps, yes....

I read, I write some (which never no one but my computer ever sees), I cook, I am one of those sick bastards who loves karaoke and does it often, I give a lot of parties for people, I'm a PTA guru and have volunteered roughly 10K or so hours in the last 5 years doing it, I internet far too much, I raise my kiddos to be like me, I sometimes try my hand at crafting (sewing, home decorating, card/stationery making, etc), I occaisionally read tarot, and I just try to survive this thing called life.

If karaoke makes you a sick bastard, then, I must also be a sick bastard.

Fortunately, they have Danzig and Judas Priest where I usually go.

We weren't raised together; I didn't meet him until I was 20.



Ah.  Well, at that point, I think it's basically the title of step-brother that makes it weird. I guess if one found themselves seriously considering it, they could ask their parents for a courtesy temporary divorce and un-adoption if adoption by step parent is applicable?

I am not asking my dad if I can fuck my stepbrother. We're like, 40.

It was meant to be humorous.

As was my reply. :)


It struck me as such, just wanted to cover my bases just in case.  :wink:

I can't find anything logically wrong with the scenario. If there are no legal implications/genetic implications and you barely see each other, you're basically casual acquaintances. I personally wouldn't go for it, but that's just me.

It's not just the genetic similarities that make it incest (at least in my mind). It's also the fact that you were raised together.


And also the fact that if you did, I really wouldn't know what to make of the situation. It would be a continuous loop for me trying to figure out what is up with that. Now imagine if it's you thinking the same loop, and actually being part of it too.

Oh hey! It's a brand-new forum, yet they have post-count-restricted subforae. With no content, that NO ONE can get into, because it's a brand new forum.  :lulz:

That isn't completely retarded at all.

Sounds like borderline spam time to me to see the cool shit, no?

12357
I'm amused that you guys act like places in NE are actually far from each other  :lulz:

Well, it would be a 10 hour, 500 mile, drive from Fort Kent Maine to Provdience Rhode Island.  If there wasn't any traffic. 


Who drives only 50 MPH?

People from Maine. They have to watch for moose and stuff, and still expect them in the city.  :lulz:

Boston tip-
The speed limit is whatever it says plus 15 mph if you don't want to get pulled over, and 25 if you think there are no cops around.

I've had a solid routine of sneaking off the Pike in Newton and coasting into Boston via Comm Ave/Brighton for two years. It's going to be unfortunate (:x)when I move to the Fenway area and have to deal with driving IN Boston.

The JWay and Logwood Ave to Kent St. will be your saviors.

And if you're going to be living in Fenway, I fully expect to see you at LA BOUM at Milky Way (First Fridays, free admission).

Eve,

I work at BWH. If you move to LMA/Fenway, we definitely have to meet up on a Friday.

(I'm also considering it. I would very much like a walking commute if I can swing it).

I'm a musician and I play in an original band. Primarily it's guitar and male vocals. My vocals need improvement. My guitar work is good, but I'm no virtuoso. Heavy and/or Fast is what I like and want. Technical is added spice.

I can also play bass guitar, and I'm picking up mandolin and keyboard in pieces. I intend to start up a side project this summer. I also intend to start up (read: "reunite") a fake Mormon bluegrass band to further a particularly long and involved prank that I'm primarily playing on my other guitarist, but am also playing on other people. Every other member of my band is in on the prank.

I admit to being a full drunk, but I've recently come out of a particularly long and unpleasant bout of depression, and thus intend to go back to being a borderline/occasional drunk. Also in a similar vein, I intend to quit smoking tobacco entirely and permanently in the next 2 months, and in the next couple of weeks try and start losing the 30 pounds that seem to have come out of nowhere (I can't put on some of my summer wear).

Other than that I am primarily interested in languages and anything to do with the universe. I am however, a notorious slacker and procrastinator, so I only go so far with those (As far as non-English languages go, I am best at Latin, since it was compulsory at my high school. I would like better skill in Irish and Russian. I am satisfied with my level of French, since I don't expect to use it very often and that it occasionally offends my ears). I also am not particularly good at math, so astronomy will always be kind of a neat thing to read about.

I am fairly passionate about history, and that is what I am majoring in. I tend to prefer ancient European/Near East history.

Recently I have become somewhat entranced by the daytime sky, and it fills me with a sense of how big it is in comparison to me. The night time sky fills me with the same feeling for different reasons and to a different degree (we are talking light years here).

I have a tendency to buy office supplies on impulse.

I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend (A Villager at PD, also my bassist and best friend), even if we're not really doing anything in particular (I have recently gotten her into Star Trek, so it's always a fall back. And yes. She missed Star Trek the first go around. All of it, including Enterprise with Scott Bakula. She grew up in a horror film household).

I'm initially shy in person unless drink is involved. I get used to you after maybe 3 or 4 encounters and then can deal with you sober. Providence spags minus Dimo- you probably reach that point this Saturday if you come to LMNO's show. Dimo, you're already there, since this will be our 4th meet.

My middle range goals are to finish what I started, particularly CDGASM. And thank you Coyote for goading me to keep up with it. Now I have to goad myself to keep up with it.

I like meeting up with and hanging out with PDers. None of you have disappointed me yet, and even though we don't see each other often, I consider a good amount of you to be middle range to close friends. And those of you that I haven't met in person, I look forward to the day that I can, barring the very few.

I am an only son/step-son, and only grandson on one side, cousin and nephew to many on the other (the American side and not the Irish. Contracting polio puts a damper on reproduction), a brother to two (one just turned 28 and one 14 going 15. I am the oldest at 29 going 30, both as of August), and an uncle to a niece (6) that I've met maybe 3 times and a nephew (2) I've never met (My sister moved away a long time ago). I have more in common with my 14 year old sister than my 28 year old sister. I am currently living with my mom, step-father and youngest sis due to a few different circumstances, but I am moving out again most likely in mid July.

The Nephew in my screen name is a mockery of using family relations to describe a religious position (Father, Brother, Sister, Mother Superior....), in case you were wondering.

I most likely forgot some stuff, but I imagine that covers the stuff that is important to me/things that PDers might be interested in knowing.
