I've added two new things to my life recently and they're both going extremely well, I think.

1. I've joined an online Dungeons and Dragons game thanks to[personal profile] settiai putting in a good word for me. You can see my character in my icon. He's a gnome barbarian named Mawny. He likes smashing things. Instead of rages (a barbarian class feature), he goes into delights. He's a very happy fellow. Dumb as a rock, but happy. I like the other players and I'm intrigued to see where the DM is going with this story.

Here's the full picture )

2. I've started exercising. I'm doing Zombies Run 5K. I'm halfway through Week 2. I think my height is giving me some advantages. Last night I did 3.33KM in the 30ish minute session. About 2/3rds of that time, I was doing a fast walk, not a run. Anyway, my primary goal is to increase my stamina, so I don't get tired out from doing household chores or running to the store. If this works out, I may also look into doing some other types of exercise.

Now, if we can only get through Tuesday without triggering the apocalypse, my life will really be going well.

It occurs to me that, other than my brief and completely unintelligible post from earlier, I haven't made a significant update in two weeks. Whoops. Here's the deal:

I was in fact, offered a job at a different web hosting company which I accepted and now I work with [livejournal.com profile] lizbetann (same schedule and everything). Went home for Christmas and moving, vastly underestimated the amount of time needed to get our crap out of the apartment, ending up doing the drive to Los Angeles a day late and the schlepping of items into the storage unit a day after that. But long story short, both [personal profile] echan and I are now Los Angeles residents (crashing with Lizbet and [livejournal.com profile] diannelamerc for the time being). We four drew up plans to live in a big geek commune of a two-bedroom apartment, only to be thwarted by unavailability and then unthwarted today when one opened up. Woot.

Also, I've been exercising daily on the Wii Fit. It's weird but I feel healthier and my ADD (which is currently unmedicated due to a foul-up with the prescriptions in the moving process) is actually semi-manageable. Mind you, when the expectations start to ramp up, I'll want my shiny orange pills again, but for now, I'm kind of okay.

Also, Lizbet and Dee are made of win. That is all.
