long time

I've been spewing my day to day thoughts to the random masses on Twitter lately, and thus neglecting longer narrative here. I feel ok about that - I don't think too many people read this anyway, and I'm not sure how productive it is to record every moody thought.

I spent 3 months at EA on a contract, and I loved it. They had the most beautiful campus, games everywhere (including a fucking Arkanoid machine), the best cafeteria I've ever encountered, and a Starbucks. My contract was terminated right before Christmas. I was a bit heartbroken. I don't think I've ever been so sad to leave a company. Thus is contracting.

Monday I start back at Verizon, in a completely different capacity. I'm really looking forward to it - this spotty employment thing has been really horrible. I don't really have anything else to say about that, except that it's going to be hard work, and I need that.

Snow and I have been playing D&D on a regular basis at Endgame, to enormous entertainment value. It feels good to geek out like that. I haven't made it the last couple of weeks and I've been in terrible withdrawals. I'm hopoing I can make it Monday despite it being my first day at work. I don't have a lot of social interaction, and I need it.

Today is my last day of leisure, so I plan to slack and then possibly go to Becketts and eat fish and chips and drink cider.

Things are looking up, I'm cautiously optimistic. Once I get a couple of paychecks under my belt, Snow and I are planning to move in together. After 5-ish years. We are slow, but it's for the best. My biggest concern is how our cats will get along. Here's hoping, on that one.

Things that are good:

The last few episodes of Battlestar

Settlers of Catan card game
Spacefarers of Catan
D&D 4e

Arthur and George
