I look back at this journal and realize that I have failed utterly in what I wanted to do with it. I wanted to use it as a tool to write, but I’ve come to the realization that my muse and I parted ways a long time ago perhaps never to see each other save for a fleeting moment now and again. But, such is the nature of life.
Currently consuming my time is Sid Meier’s Pirates! which Jm gave me as a Valentine’s Day gift. I played the original back in the day, and the update is just as much fun as its predecessor. There is just something fun about sailing around the Caribbean plundering ships, trading cargo, and trying to romance every single governor’s daughter you can find. Hours have been sucked away in the past three days, hours well spent losing myself to a simple but endlessly entertaining game.
The latest season of 24 has been great as well; I really hope that this is the last season for it. Best to go out with a bang rather than a whimper as did The X-Files. And the show is starting to repeat itself a bit more than it has in the past two seasons.
Work has stabilized for now; there was a tenuous period there after Xmas, but things seem to be going well for now. Fingers crossed.
That’s about it for now; just counting the minutes until I can get home and start my latest run to hunt for buried treasure.
