psychick: (NOPUNCHBACKS)
JUST WRITE IT, FOOL! Okay, here we go:

Back from a weekend in an odd Pennsylvanian mix of golf course, beach and forest to celebrate the birthdays of various Scotts. I DROVE THE WHOLE WAY, IT WAS AWESOME. I rented a zippy little Mazda 3 Hatch and was well pleased with it - those of you who know anything about cars may or may not mock me for it, but the extent of my expertise when it comes to cars is: 1) When I hit the gas, does it go? 2) When I hit the brake, does it stop? 3) When I turn the wheel, does it make a small circle or a big one? and 4) How much gas does it eat? The 3 Hatch scored well on all points, and was big enough for five people and our luggage to survive a couple of hours. The handling on that car was really peppy, enough so that I was not a nervous wreck driving in NYC. Not even Yankees traffic could defeat me, and we went right by the stadium at 5pm! Makes me miss having a car...

I also miss not coughing all the time, and my own bed. At least one of this is immediately achievable, but as long as I've gotten up the momentum to post in this thing, I might as well make it worthwhile.

A list of points of interest:

1) Still working at CCNY. It's nice. I have a fish.
2) Moving out of Inwood. No, I do not know when or where or with who. There are a lot of not-quite-great options on the table, but I'll figure something out.
3) I am bringing so many people with me to the 4th of July BBQ, it's going to be amazing.
4) I AM GOING TO NEW ORLEANS, GDI. Damn the cost, I am GOING.
5) Ha ha ha ha what is money?
6) My friends are awesome, all the many groups of them.

Nerd talk begins here, non-nerds may go enjoy their evenings.

There's a lot I could say about various tabletop and LARP games that are going on presently, but this post is getting long enough. So instead of talking about things I am doing, I will talk about something I am not doing.

I'm not rp-ing anywhere online anymore. It's easy when you're part of a big vibrant group that's always coming up with new nonsense in whatever games its members stick their fingers into, but I fell out of that group for one reason or another. That stings, I'm not going to lie, but there are enough big vibrant things going on in rl that I don't actually miss it as a hobby. There are one or two people that I do miss fiercely however, and characters that are still fluttering about in my head like so many moths, but I still associate the activity with that lost group. One day I may regain the interest and the interpersonal support, but it's not today. It was awesome while it lasted, and I am so happy to have made the friends that I did. Y'all are the best, and I enjoy reading up on what's going on in your lives, real or imaginary. ♥

And I did not see a single moose. Unless by "moose" you mean my friends, in which case I saw four, and slept in one of their houses. Those friends being namely: [ profile] lowellboyslash, [ profile] takhys, [ profile] telekine and NEW FRAND [ profile] theoriginalspy.

My impression of Toronto is that it is a pretty okay place! We went to the Museum, which was something between the Met with its sculptures and mummies, and the Natural History Museum, with its dinosaurs and stuffed things behind glass. (Tiny baby dinosaur fossils! And who doesn't like a good Giant Sloth?) There was also a GIGANTIC PUBLISHING FAIRE thing, at which all of Canada's publishers, large and small, and several major stores set up under tents and sell books on the cheap. I bought Hellboy instead of maple syrup or whatever other kitchy thing, and I am not ashamed. Also, I have seen the Polkaroo live, and all I understand is how little I understand.

I also glimpsed Lake Ontario, and yes it was a rather Great Lake (haw haw), what with the sky being huge and gorgeous and some boats being out on it. Having spent most of my formative years in Maryland, I am a sucker for large bodies of water with sailboats. If a decent crabcake had occurred at any point in the trip, I might not have come back at all. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT OLD BAY, CANADA? IF SO, LET'S TALK.

Also. If, in the future, I ever say to you "yes, I am going on a trip just for the weekend. I'm coming back Sunday night / Monday morning and am going straight to work! It'll be fine!" please know that I am lying, and that I will actually just be going straight to bed. Fortunately, it was a very good Monday for calling out sick, so I was telling the truth about the fine part.
