spawning diversions

Before I start I gotta say that I feel like I'm having one of those days today where, even though it hasn't happened yet, I feel like I'm on the verge of saying something supremely stupid that will undoubtedly piss someone off. I hate days like these.

I had a slight scare on my trip last month from my friends. Trevor and Leah are expecting. That's not the scary part though, this is the funny part. What's funny about it is Leah only wants to go through this once, and Trevor was hoping for two (a boy and a girl). They both are getting exactly what they wanted. Twins! The scary part was that Leah had to check into the hospital for monitoring, after the prescribed bed rest didn't seem to be doing the trick. This is when and where I visited them on while on my trip. There's a chance they may be premature, but we're all hoping they stick to the April birth schedule. Luckily (so far) it was only a scare and the things they're going through are normal when expecting twins. It's been almost two months since then and I'm happy to report that Leah, the babies, and Trevor are all doing very well. Both are going through all the mental "OMG I'm going to be a parent soon" exercises in double time, but I know they'll do fine. I'm thrilled for them, thrilled that I get to be an uncle (again), and looking forward to meeting the kiddos.

Since returning from CA I've been unusually antsy. It's not for a lack of things to do, but I've got a very active mind. My day to day life has become a bit too mundane to keep me happy so I starting looking for ways to keep it engaged. If I don't I wind up concocting a fun way that always ends with me getting into trouble with someone, the law, or costing me money. I can't have any of that in my life right now. I started watching/catching up the show Supernatural last December which helped a little (I'm midway through season six now). As a late xmas gift to myself I renewed my XBox Live subscription last month, but I only play one game on it (on or offline), I use it to watch Netflix as well as other things on my TV. Still, it's not enough. I decided to go back to playing Eve Online, and no it's not porn. The best and simplest description I can give you is that it's an internet spaceship game where you're pitted against other live players around the globe. I gave it up last year due to the monthly cost and life no longer afforded me the time for it. I'm able to get around paying out of pocket by paying via in-game money for 30 day subscriptions.

How will I cope on the road? Being in the city is what does this to me, and I'll be ok once I'm away from it.  One of the things I've been doing while in captivity has been to make a list of things that I will do then. It's a pretty good size now, but it's not the size so much as what I do with it. Right ;-)
