Just Another Random Monday

I screwed up something in my neck over the weekend, and I’m riding a wave of painkillers, so I’m just going to be a little random.

*Ok, so I’m usually kind of random, but… anyway…

** I just keep circling the fact in my mind that my EldestDaughter is now the same age I was when I had her, and the same age my mom was when she had my brother.  This fact will not leave my brain.  I am so not ready for this stage of her life to begin.  I know that life keeps moving on, but…. wow… 

** I went to her place yesterday, to drop off her birthday present, and ended up doing some minor cleaning… picking up, dishes… I really am starting to act like my mother.  Another frightening thought.  At least I wasn’t snooping through her cabinets.  Ya gotta draw the line somewhere, right?

** It’s that time of year again, when my brain starts growling about getting outdoors again.  I NEED to get outside, share space with the trees and the grass, and the sunshine.  I need Spring.  Seriously.

** YoungerDaughter went out on her first date on Saturday night.  Nuff said there – cause she’s got me on a gag order.  Just telling you that she went could get me put in DaughterDetention.  And this kid’s a tough cookie, she’ll ignore you on principle alone, just to teach you a lesson.

** I am a total gamer geek girl.  I love to play RPG (role playing games) on the PS3 and Xbox.  No judging!  To me it’s like a favorite book, that I not only get to read, over and over again, but I actually get to be one of the characters, AND I get to fight bad guys.  Stress relief is spelled D-R-A-G-O-N A-G-E 2, thanks.  OH, and Fallout 3 is one of the best games ever, with a kickass soundtrack.   I have to admit, though, that Final Fantasy X and X2 are still my favorites of all time.  I still have them both, and yes, I’ve played them eachat least 3 times.   

Among my favorite games, ones that I have in my collection, are Final Fantasys IX, X, X2, XII, The Elder Scrolls Morrowind, and Oblivion, Fallout 3, Dragon Age, and Dragon Age 2, which I am playing currently.  I am a geek, loud and proud. 

** I can now say that I have perfected the Nestle’ Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe for the double batch.  Another recipe I get to add to my favorites that I am actually pretty good at.  There aren’t a whole lot of them, but the ones that I excel at?  Are a-fricking-mazing,  thanks.  Not to sound conceited, that’s just the painkillers talking.

**I can’t wait for next weekend.  I’m currently working on writing a ritual for Spring, for the next Wicca 101 class.  I just hope that we’ll have nice enough weather between now and next Sunday so that we can maybe do this outside, in the park.  *sigh*  I would so love to be able to do ritual in the park again.

Have a great week, my friends, and stay random!  If life hands you lemons, make strawberry shortcake, and watch everyone else try to figure out how the hell you did it!

  1. I think you’d get on well with my daughter; those are some of her favourite games.
    And I like the sound of your painkillers. Mine work, but don’t give me the high that some get. Its going to be reaching for them soon.
    Hope the neck gets better soon.

    • Actually, I really don’t like taking painkillers, because they make me feel out of control, and I really don’t like that… but, when ya gotta, ya gotta. I’m such a lightweight when it comes to these things, it was a half-dosage of a very mild painkiller that I’ve taken in the past, and I was higher than a kite.

      The neck is feeling better today, I think I just popped something out of place, and couldn’t get it to pop back because the muscles were spasming. LOTS of stretching has helped.

  2. I started my family at a very young age and (16) is now at that age when I had him. I can honestly say that I had panic attacks leading up to his birthday. LOL! I know how you feel. I’m not ready either but hang in there. 😉

    • Mark, I think I’d be riding that fine line between “woooodoggie” and “chemicallyinducedcoma” if I did that! LOL! Although, I do have to say that mixing Sudafed and Midol has a most strange effect on my reasoning skills – just ask my co-workers!!

      I’ve since told them that I’m not allowed to blend those particular chemicals any more!

      They agree. 😉

  4. Oh, Gaming…have you ever watched, The Guild? I’ve watched a few episodes here and there, but not all (the language is a little rough for me)…but some of them are really funny. Each episode is, like, 4 – 7 minutes long.

    • LOL, Regan, I have such control issues that I can’t play the online games like Everquest or WOW. I have to be in charge at all times! I did enjoy the heck out of Fable, though, I think I played it about 4 times!

    • I was lucky enough to have a co-worker step on my back today, and it POPPED! Ah, relief…. Just one case of having people crawl over me on the ladder of success where it actually did me some good! Who’d a thunk it? 😉

  5. Great post. Female gamers rock. Especially when they bring the chocolate chip cookies. 🙂

    The age thing is simply something you shouldn’t fret about. Why, in no time at all, what you said won’t even be true anymore. (ducking)

    Feel better!

    • Nope, not mailing anyone cookies, doesn’t do any good to suck up to me.. LOL!

      ‘Sides, the gremlins ate them all already!

    • Oh, I’d bet that’s not the only reason you’re invited to parties! LOL! But, yes, Tollhouse are the awesomenest!
