Nothing Much To Say – Plenty to Think About

I don't know what I want to write about today. I have two topics all picked out, but I can't decide which one to write about first, plus both topics require a tidbit more research on my part before I start commenting all willy-nilly and looking foolish. So, this morning I'm just typing. Yep, just typing away until the writing gods strike me with a topic or topics to rant about, or comment on, or poke fun at or what have you.

This whole writing a blog a week thing is tougher than some of you might think, by the way. Especially for someone who's brain never seems to shut off. I think all the time; I can be working on one thing while having ideas for several other projects going on in my head. My fiancee tells me I need to stop “thinking so hard”, but it's not that easy really. I've had friends think I was upset or angry about something when in fact I was in a great mood; I was just thinking about something else that may have pissed me off in the past, and so my expression ends up showing it even if I'm not really feeling it. My fiancee also tells me that my lips move when I'm “thinking to hard”. I don't even notice it, but she can see it. All this is probably why I have two topics on hold for this blog and can't pick one – both of them are swimming in my head to the point that they're bumping into each other rather than making it to my fingers and therefore the computer screen.

The real problem with the thinking about several things at once issue is at night. I don't think I have sleep apnea, I have “sleep thinkea” - the inability to shut off all the ideas in my head so I can sleep. Interestingly, I never remember my dreams, probably because I thought about all of it while I was awake. In fact, I'll bet I don't dream when I'm asleep, because I've thought it all out already. You know, it just dawned on me that my teachers used to tell me to stop day dreaming when I was in grade school.

So, anyway, those blogs on role playing games and Windows 7 will have to wait until next week and the week after. My copy of Windows 7 has been ordered so once I get that installed and have experience with it, I'll shoot you guys a review. The gaming group is about to convert our D&D characters to Palladium Fantasy Role-Playing Game characters, so I'll be writing a blog about that process and my feelings on the “D20 System” versus the “Palladium System”. Until then, have fun, be young and drink Pepsi!
