I am so mad!!

Every night on my drive to work I can think of at least a half dozen things to post about on here.

However, by the time I get home I am so tired and dazed and confused after work I can't recall any of them to save my life.

I hate when that happens. That's why I haven't been posting as much on here the past week or so.

HEY!I have a tape recorder that my mom gave me about 5 years ago when I first started coming up wth ideas for my books. It runs on batteries. I can put it in my car and turn it on when I start to work at night and when an idea hits I can just talk it thru until I arrive at work. Then in the morning when I get home all I have to do is listen to it and type away.

Of course I may get some really weird looks while I'm driving down the road at 11PM seemingly chatting away to myself. On the other hand- people may just think I am chatting on my cellphone, which, incidentally, I threw in the river about 5 years ago because I never could get it to do what I wanted it tho WHEN I wanted it to.

On that note- I finally got around to sitting down last night and playing Zelda-Windwaker last night! It was So much fun!!! A bit difficult to learn all the commands all at one sitting- but definately FUN! I played about a half hour and then turned it over to Paulius. I didn't WANT to- but I HAD to sleep an hour before going in to work. I WANTED to stay here and play the game for about 13 hours straight like I used to do on my N64. Zelda and GoldenEye were my favorites and on my days off- I would sit for hours on end playing. My kids get it naturally.

We may have to get another system and set it up next to the one we have now so Paulius and I can spend our time playing while enjoying each others company.

Of course we could just get two player or multi player games. That would probally be easier.....IF we can compromise and find some 2 player games we can agree on.

Sometimes you just wanna kinda zone out.....together. Know what I mean?

I am so happy to have a mate who loves doing the same things I like to do for recreation.

Life is good.
VERY good!!

I have the same problem, always think of things to post when I am away from my computer. Like while driving, or I might wake up in the middle of the night and think of something. Then when I finally get to sit down and type, I forget all the best parts. Or something funny will happen with the kids, and I'll say, "I have to remember that for the blog!" But I don't, so then you get a picture instead. If I am at work and an idea pops into my head, I type a quick text doc so I can get back to it later, but then later they don't seem so good, and most get trashed. I couldn't do the tape recorder thing, because I can't stand the sound of my own voice on tape! I just keep thinking, "This is what I sound like to people?!" :)

No way! I just started playing windmaker on GC last weekend. Since then I've cracked out on it most nights. I was surprised at how engaging it was. It's fast paced enough to keep me hooked without making me feel like I'm missing out.

I do it too. I've thought of several things I have wanted to write about recently but when I get to the computer my mind goes blank.

I'll try and post more regularly now though......
