  8 months smoke-free now.

My senses have returned. I now not only see dead people, but I smell them too.

Not as many this year as last. I guess I missed a good one this weekend when I was up in Canadaland, but it happens :)

I was in Tucson some years ago during the monsoons. Some pretty impressive weather. Quite different from the thunderstorms we have here in the tornado belt.
I love a good loud thunderstorm !

  Had a storm here last night that turned the fire station yard into an inland sea complete with tidal system, it was epic.

  Random things I did today:

Watched Milton Friedman on YouTube.

Looked for the world's largest maze in Google Earth (it's in Hawaii!).

Oppressed my recently-missing-more-recently-returned cat with excessive love and attention.

Drew a floorplan for a fictional house.

None of which involved smoking in any way, shape or form. Am I still on topic?

(Not to be confused with the one in my avatar, who was mauled by a dog ON MY BIRTHDAY.)

Nah it's for a story so I'll probably just furnish it as I go. Its owners are dirt poor anyway so they won't have anything exciting. Just like their creator, ha!

  Things I did today:

Bike to work.

Try (unsuccessfully) to towel off sweat.

Spend 30-50min with a Japanese Kanji dictionary trying to decipher the day's schedule. Give up and put it in desk.

Summarize the entire years textbook. Practise Japanese. Study. Have a cup of tea. Have lunch. Put on gym uniform, go watch students march. Participate in school aerobics. Write a lesson plan and a to do list. Study.

Bike home.

Get caught in a rain storm.

Go eat tempura.

Drink tiny Japanese beer/s and feel like a giant.

I think they grow square apples too.
It solves a lot of their storage problems.
Talk about "thinking outside the box".

  Haha no I haven't sorry Kira, where I live is very Inaka (rural) so most people grow their own produce. They look and sound fantastic though!

Congrats! Good job there ol' buddy.

I'm workin' on about two weeks, myself. Before that I had cut down dramatically, say, at most one full cigarette a day.

Also, have had very little to drink of the last couple of months. In fact, none at all since a BBQ on the 6th.

And, speaking of BBQ. Last time I've eaten meat, as well. I am eating super fresh fruits and veggies and an assortment of other delicious, nutritious things. And working out every morning. Early style. It's rough. Early morning.

I just realized I talked about myself quite a bit, there.


Hoooooray Addi! :)

  Thanks, Meshie. I'm very happy I've been able to pull it off so far. Good luck with your major changes. That's a hell of a lot to alter at one time in life habits. Stay strong, Buddy. You'll be very happy down the road.

*And I don't know what's going on, but I'm getting major spam ad stuff attacking me when I open GT now. Very weird...and nauseating.

Amazing, I have also done this recently, designed a 3 story 200 year old farm house for a book i'm working on, complete with attic conversion, a conservatory added in the 90s and a basement which contains a fruit cellar and a significantly more Welsh 'coal cwtch'.

It's difficult when you've got a dozen characters living in the house for various reasons to remember who goes when and when so the floor plan has been a big help.

To make things even easier for me (also because I had to visualise a siege of the farm house for one chapter) I designed a plan of the farm yard itself, like a little Welsh pueblo.

Of course I can never stop designing worlds until I've hit at least a local level so I went on to design the surrounding area including country lanes, a small village, a creek, a lake and a Youth hostel.

I'm the same, I can't write with my characters living in little bubble worlds that have no detail and no history to them. I'm an obsessive world-builder and spend more time on character development than on actually writing. It's kind of a problem actually.

Your house sounds really neat and now I'm curious about your book, you wouldn't be willing to send me a couple of chapters would you? (It's fine if not, I'm always horribly embarrassed when people ask to see my work.)

This has been driving me crazy for two weeks, and today is the worst yet! It's like a contained virus affecting only GT, it's so frustrating.

Chrome is all I use, Puck. Still does it...redirects me to another page even.

Why stop there, Mesh?
Invite Sarah and get a threesome going.

Hah I'm the opposite, I have a character on a train and I have no idea where he's going. He's dismissive and distant and isn't telling me anything. Son of a bitch :P

Do you go through the main page or go directly to the forum? Aha! It popped at me too...for going through the main page. If you go directly to the forum:
http://generationterrorists.com/cgi-bin/forum/forum.cgi?new=postings
it should be all bettah.

  I don't like going directly to the forum either. I would feel guilty never visiting the main page, and I would miss reading the new quotes section and new articles when they're posted.

Maybe he doesn't know where he's going either, what if he just wanted to LEAVE wherever it was he started? ;)


 
Mesh Posted: Wed Sep 1 21:14:23 2010 Post | Quote in Reply  
  Yes, I also have to go to the main page.

Also, I was only kidding about Bristol Palin. I don't actually hope she does porn.


She's already doing far worse, anyway. Dancing With the Stars....
