Happy Nevada Day peoples. Although they celebrated on the 27th, Nevada became a state on October 31st. From Wikipedia:
Nevada Day commemorates the admission of the state of Nevada into the union on October 31, 1864. The first known observance of Nevada Day (originally known as “Admission Day”) was by the Pacific Coast Pioneer society during the 1870s. It was not until 1933 that the state legislature designated October 31 as Nevada Day and a great celebration.
Stupid trivia that I have picked up over the years.
For the rest of us, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, or as Iowa wants to call it. Happy Beggar’s Night. May you eat all the candy you want without getting sick or fat. May the ghosts and goblins of the neighborhood not pull any horrible tricks on you. Remember, FULL SIZE candy bars get you remembered for being cool. And pencils and pennys are just a cheap ass cop out. Kids want CANDY, simple as that.
Seasonal Affective Disorder is the malady of the day and the last week, and will be next week and on for a while. I am in a serious funk. Teresa asked me to go to one of my favorite restaurants and I turned her down. Yes, you read that right. Teresa wanted to go out on a work night, to one of my favorite restaurants, and I said No. Oy, I hate SAD. Every year it hits me, and every year I swear next year will be different. It’s crazy I say, just cuz the season has turned gloomy, my mood matches it.
Still the only game I am playing is World of Warcraft. The first character I got the full set of legendary weapons for is Pugno, who is now level 102. Pugno is my 2nd most favorite character. He is an Orc Warrior, prefers Fury, but can do Arms and Protection just as well.
My favorite character is Terminate. He is a Level 95 Dwarven Warrior who has been around since December 2004, a month after launch. I just haven’t gotten around to leveling him to 100+ because I have been focusing on lower level characters.
Like I have said here before, I really like playing the first 15-20 levels of a character. So, I have 10 new characters on the Stormrage server who are levels 15-26. I suppose I am going to have to level at least some of them, can’t just keep doing the same levels over and over.
Thanksgivingfest is 18 days away (19 if you count today, which I probably should). Teresa finally got the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday off between Tfest and Thanksgiving. So we can actually do this trip. I am gonna ask her this morning to try to get the Friday before Tfest off, so we can leave early Friday. So I can drive to Fishers, Indiana from my mom’s house Friday afternoon.—Ignore that, she got it off already, she is so good to me.
So, I will be driving down to Bruce and Cori’s Friday during the daylight hours. And not have to drive at night or get up ridiculously early on Saturday. Way cool. I can take my time, stop and walk around often to save my back. Yeah, this is good.
So, I (we) am only going to available in the Region for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of Thanksgiving week. So if any of my friends from the Region actually read this and want to get together on one of those days or evenings, please let me know. Time is kinda short this visit, so I would like to get everyone in who wants to see us.
I told Teresa I would try to get up, get a shower, get dressed and go out for dinner tonight. 3 out of 4 of those things are a challenge, really 4 out of 4. But as she pointed out, I do feel better once I am out, at least for a little while. It’s just the getting to the point of going out that is the problem. But I resolved to try, that is all I can do.
My project that I was talking about has fallen flat. Along with my desire to do it. Seasonal Affective Disorder kills another idea. Oh, I found out that October 31st was the day I quit Iowa Realty too. Was my career as a real estate agent doomed by SAD too? Could be, who knows?
