God I love this game. Thank God for ScummVM!

God I’m bored and lonely right now. I don’t have anything that I want to do and I can’t seem to find any way to entertain myself. In the dorms, this is when I would go down to the lobby just to see what was going on, but now all I can do is go to another part of the house where there’s different stuff to possibly distract myself with. I’ve been pretty quiet on Livejournal lately as I’ve been really productive at work, but at the same time, I’ve been kind of discouraged by it lately because it seems like most of the people on my friends list are similarly quiet and busy.

I tried to play a game on the PS2 a few minutes ago, but the batteries in the cordless controller were dead, so I took it as a sign that I wasn’t supposed to play. I was tempted to play some Diablo II on the computer, when I remembered that my characters are on my portable hard drive. I’m pretty sure they’re not on the computer anymore, so they may be lost for good. A side note to the hard drive dilema, norelenCraig had a suggestion on how to maybe get it going, if only long enough to get the data off of it, but I’m still nervous to try it. It’s not as extreme as ripping the guts out and trying to physically rebuild a drive, but it’s pretty harsh and if there were a way to salvage the drive any other way, this would probably trash it.

Anyway. I’ve been consistent with working out, only skipped one day so far and I rode 4 miles the day before because I knew I wasn’t going to make it to the Rec Center that day. I tried out the rowing machine today and if it weren’t for the fact that I got pretty dehydrated around 6 minutes, I think I could probably have gone for twice as long. Maybe more. I did 10 minutes on it since I’d never done it before and really enjoyed it. It was a good cardio and at the same time, it did some really nice arm and shoulder work. Really nice contrast to biking which focuses on the legs. So it’s looking like I’m going to do an upper body workout with a bike ride on Tues/Thurs and a lower body (including abs, and a bonus tricep workout since they’re hindering my chest excersizes) with rowing on Wed and Sat/Sun. I’m still considering going five times a week, but I don’t know what I’ll do with that fifth day if I do go. I’m thinking I might do one set on everything, but I’m not sure if that will really help me at all.

Nick’s going to loan me his Camel Pack for when I’m biking so I can carry water with me and don’t have to slow or stop to get a drink. We’ll see how it goes if he remembers to bring it up tomorrow. I don’t know if it’s going to make that much of a difference since I’m only going 3.5 miles, but I sure think it would be nice. I also realized today, I really am going to have to get another backpack for workout days. My duffel that I’ve been using, that I got for free from some promotion, is about to fall apart. And aside from the two weeks I’ve been carrying it to the Rec Center, I’ve only ever used it twice. I guess I got what I paid for.

Oh well, I’m going to stare blankly at my games and see if there’s something that sounds entertaining to me. Ta-Ta for now.

Well, I’m completely recoding the menus for the SOVA web site. It’s taking a lot of work and experimentation, but I have to say, PVII pretty much kicks ass in free dreamweaver plugins. I should never have doubted them.
