Maybe I am getting old. Sitcoms are starting to give way of Dramas. I now watch, probaby, 30% sitcoms, 30% “Discovery” shows, and %30 dramas. The last 10% is just random crap.

Anyway, I’m sitting here watching Monk, realizing that it’s probably one of my two favorite shows presently. Sitcoms are a good way to while away the time between episodes of Monk and 24. Anyway, I’m just feeling my age, but only because my TV tastes are starting to catch up with me. Remember, I’m still planning on sitting around all day MLK and playing video games. I guess there’s no fully stopping time, but I’m sure going to keep some fingers on a few different pulses of the clock.

Monday, Nick Corwin75Steve, and I plan on having a console gaming day since we have the day off of work. We’re gonna get some game systems together and play a bunch of multiplayer games. We’re all trying to get people together to join us but I’ve realized lately that Nick and Steve are pretty much the two people I’d invite to hang out so I guess I’m done. If you’re reading this and think you’d want to hang out, feel free to drop a comment. I’m an email addict, so I’ll see it, don’t you worry.

So far the big games on the list are Halo, Mario Kart: Double Dash, and D&D Heroes.

I’ve been thinking lately that I want to redo my web page, maybe break it up a little more cleanly so there is distinctly a personal section and games section so that I can kind of give a clearer idea as to who I am and a better place to showcase this journal. Right now, my website is mostly a storehouse of gaming info. I like being a resource but for some reason I’ve been feeling more and more in need of connection, contact, whatever, and I’m wondering if by being more personal on the web, I’d be able to meet and interact with more people on-line. I like the idea of talking with people regularly. I started realizing that I don’t even get social emails anymore, just work mail, game scheduling, and junk.I have three email addresses, but the one that’s dedicated to personal email is full of nothing but junk mail every day. I got kind of depressed at that.

Maybe I’ll dig up some old email addresses and see what other people are doing these days.

End of the week, finally. I’ve had to do classroom orientations this week which I know and appreciate the value of. I just hate doing them. It’s basically me talking to classes in the computer labs for almost an hour. I tell them rules and policies that apply to the lab as well as giving hints and tips as to how to make their lives in the lab better. I try to get that info out as quick and painless as possible while still convering all the details and stressing the important stuff, but sometimes I even bore myself.

It’s all worth it though, because I’ve actually noticed a shift in attitudes in the lab where the students seem to feel more like they’re working with the lab rather than just working in the lab. Students are more open to talk with me and the lab attendants about what they’re doing and wanting to do as well as understanding and respecting the policies that we enforce. So really, in the long run, I enjoy the results regardless of how much I loathe doing the orientations themselves.
