1. Wife and daughter have gone camping with the girl scouts. Note that SWHTL is still very much recovering from surgery.
2. Son is taking his GF to her senior prom.
3. Three different individuals have tried to start internet fights with me tonight.


I'm at a complete loss. Can't get too trashed, Troll Jr will be bringing the girl back here. Don't want them to find me on the living room floor.  The alternative, however, is to sit and fidget, worrying about both TJ and SWHTL. 

(Arguing with random idiots just doesn't hold the attraction that it used to.)

Side note: Numb3rs is the ultimate geek tv show. Watching people figure out that a little girl was kidnapped because her father was trying to solve the Reimann Hypothesis is sweet - I'd like to live in a world where random thugs cared that much about math.</meta>

They are all deacons in my church, who seem damned determined to make me lose my temper over some financial issues that I have ultimate responsibility for.

Time Alone by jimgon (4.00 / 2) #5 Sat Apr 30, 2011 at 10:05:51 AM EST
I run into that problem all the time.  Time alone isn't really time alone.  It's time constrained and ends in responsibility.  So what I can do is too constrained.  I'm married with children.  My friends are married with children.  Everything requires massive planning to do.  A few free hours is wasted time.  I end up doing laundry or something along those lines.

LO is going to a sleepover / birthday party tonight. Before the party I need to run out and get a gift, make sure LO is packed up, etc. etc.

This evening I will be "free", but worrying a little about how LO is faring. I could go try to figure out if I can hang out in the city but then that has it's own logistics since I will need to be back to pick up LO in the morning.

So, yeah.

I don't much like this adult stuff by jimgon (2.00 / 0) #11 Sat Apr 30, 2011 at 04:32:22 PM EST
On the high point in nine years my youngest will be in college and I can have a life again.  Of course I'll be forty-eight at that point, but that's not too old to still have a life.

I ended up spending by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #18 Mon May 02, 2011 at 07:59:30 AM EST
the first half the of the evening search for a P&S camera that Troll Jr had wanted to take to the prom but couldn't find. After I eventually found it (in the basement, packed away with the old 8mm camcorder, god only knows why) I spent the rest of the evening re-living the original Portal.

Mrs. H. has taken the kids away. I have done some cycling, some DIY, some gardening, but will find no problem in spending the evening drinking a few glasses of Australian red and watching as many Buffy episodes as I can.

Might even browse some pr0n.

But then that's me.

I'm thinking of one of those Colour of Magic books where the trolls are all panicking because the bandits built their campfire in grandpa's mouth....

That would mean that I'm getting old! And I'm not! Despite the grey hair and joints that make noise! I'm only, ummm, 46 next week.

That's not old!

No, it's not old by lm (4.00 / 1) #24 Mon May 02, 2011 at 04:19:50 PM EST
As I'm fond of pointing out in such discussions, the ancient Greeks used to consider from 40 - 60 to be the apogee of a man's life. ( forget the women.)

So you've got almost a decade and a half before things start to go downhill.

Oh, sweet senility. by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #28 Wed May 04, 2011 at 07:31:07 PM EST
If it makes you feel any better, you are several months younger than me.

(The first time I posted this I said "older".  See how close you are to tottering decrepitude?)

I could give a fuck by lm (2.00 / 0) #29 Wed May 04, 2011 at 08:39:51 PM EST
According to the Greek thinking that I proposed, I'll emerging into the apogee of my life this summer.

But there is also another important metric, You're ony as old as ypo feel.

While I think I reached maturity at an early age, I keep seeking out new things. When I stop, then I'll know that I've gotten old.

That said, I no longer think roller coasters are worth the wait in line. So, obviously, I've aged some.

the sport is gone. by garlic (4.00 / 0) #26 Wed May 04, 2011 at 11:26:48 AM EST
i don't do sudoku puzzles, because after I fill in the first 10 bubbles or so, I figure if I dedicated the time to it, I'd get it done in a bit, so lets just skip the that part and assume I've already won.
