Welcome to today's boring post. There's nothing really going on here. I'm still unemployed, my life consists of pretending to be Mister Mom when it rages against my inner Mister Slob. Somedays I wish I could teleport to my own island somewhere, or even better my own planet. I think it would be a nice blue one. My days are spent walking, writing, farting around on fb, chatting with friends, eating, playing games, and wishing not that life was differenet so much as wishing I was different.

In between having kids want to play with me all the time, I've been trying my damndest to make the end of this one novel work so I can finish SOMETHING in my life, and feeling frustrated. I'm also putting time in on this week's Illustration Friday, so stay tuned.

OK, onward to a game of Civ4 with Joe. Any other Civ fans out there? How about Spore? You know what would be an even more fasciating strategy game? If instead of playing a civilization or a lifeform, you got to design a human brain, and what went into it and what happens to it, and see how it turns out. Instead of adding things like learning how to hunt or learning electricity, you could have spanked by parents, wet pants in second grade gym class, first kiss, brother killed in car crash, or won first prize in elementary school art contest. I know, this sounds a lot like GRIOT in Vonnegut's Hocus Pocus, but I think it would be much more interesting. Like the song says, "All in all it's just another brick in the wall."

OK, more later, a big :) to my friends out there. Can't help missing you all when you're far away.
