Wednesdays – Not My Favorite February 18, 2009

I guess it’s just because it’s the middle of the week and nothing ever really happens.  Everyone is just waiting for the weekend and Wednesday just happens to be in the middle… 

So..  last night I was on my Twitter account (via the laptop – the PC is still dead to me.  However, it may rise again after some butt whoopin’ tonight from a friend of mine!) and I follow Felicia Day – part of a great web series called The Guild.  For the WoW addicts out there, this is such a great show.  If you haven’t seen it – SEE IT!  You can find it on the Zune and Xbox 360 Marketplaces or online. 

Anyway, I saw a tweet from Felicia Day about a season two cast party being broadcast on Ustream.  I was really very excited until I learned that it was going to be broadcasting on Pacific time.  ::insert frown here::  I’m definitely a night person, but during the week, I’m usually in bed by about 10 or 10:30 and asleep soon after.  (yes, I guess you could call me a wuss..)  So, as cool as it should have been to see the cast of the Guild live (well..  virtually live), I punked out and fell asleep. 

Stupid early mornings.

However, last night I also went to an informational meeting for a local running club that will be starting at the end of the month.  The woman who spoke had to have been pretty young, but she was really excited about the club and what it does.  Basically, the beginner program helps people to start training for a marathon (or a half marathon, 10K, 5K, whatever!) by doing the walk/run thing in the beginning and gradually working up to 3 or 4 miles non stop!  Then, you can merge into the training program for the marathon.  It’s kind of neat, though I have never really been a runner.  I’m going to try it and get myself all psyched up for it…  I hope!

Oh, and today, I brought in a chicken and eggplant casserole – everyone is loving it!  I am so excited!  And here I thought cooking wasn’t in my genes…  I guess I was wrong.  Yeay!

 

Hobbies – World of Warcaft and what?? February 5, 2009

Welcome and thank you for taking a moment to check out my blog!!

In my free time, I would love to start blogging more often.  I need to start writing extra posts that I can publish on days where I just can’t get to the computer for more than a couple of minutes.  I think that would be the best way to begin.  Any thoughts?

Anyway, I also love to game. I am a huge fan of the World of Warcraft, where I have bunch of characters. I don’t play often enough to have a very high level character, but I’m happy with a level 62 Warlock!  I find it to be a great way to keep in touch with friends from around the country.  I guess I use it more as a chat room with fun stuff to do, than an actual game.

I also play on Xbox Live when I have some time – or when the fiance isn’t playing or watching the big TV. I love the arcade games, but I have always enjoyed playing the Halo series, Mechassault (old school XBox) and stuff like that. I am also a proud member of the GamerChix, which – last check – was over 8500 members strong!! As the creator, Trixie360 says, “That’s a lot of boobs!”

There are GameCubes and a Wii in the house – which are tons of fun if you are in the mood to bowl, race some friends in Mario Kart, or just be stupid and roam around places like you would in Sims type games.  Those are probably my favorite!

When I figure out how to do it, I will see if I can post pics of my characters and gamercard on a page dedicated to gaming.  In the meantime, I may just create the page and list some of the stuff I play and some of the gaming experiences I have had in the past.

Reading is another of my favorite things to do, however I don’t do it half as much as I would like. I just feel like there are too many other things I should be doing before I sit and read. It sounds odd, I know – but I just can’t justify it in my mind.  I will probably also create a page for books I am reading and have read in the past.  I’m sure I can figure out some sort of way to make it fun and creative..   I hope.

I am trying to get into running as well.  For Christmas, my fiance bought me the Nike+ ipod shoes and the sensor for my nano. It’s really a great little product!  I just don’t really know how to get myself motivated. I definitely need to get on the ball!  I have started with the ‘walk 5 minutes, run 1 minute, repeat’ type deal, but that gets so very boring!  Luckilly, I have a friend who is in a running group and they technically train for a marathon over 6 or 10 months or something.  I am waiting for more info on that! I think that running with a group would be a geat motivator for me – whenever that starts again!

So, that is what I do in my spare time as of right now.  At least, that is what I can think of right now.  I’m sure there will be more addded to the list in the future!
