Of course, I type faster than my computer (after just waking up anyway) can keep up with, so that does mean I have to pause and wait for it to catch up every time I suspect I may have made a typo.
And on that note, I might as well briefly talk about my day. I did end up telling the half-lie, but I think it's for the best I did so. This might not make sense to normal people, but to anyone who knows about rituals...they'll understand what I mean. Basically, mafia-playing is the late-night activity I do, but not quite the latest activity. The ritual I have is starting after 8, because of Jeopardy. Usually, thanks to either shows (which are all on break) or dancing, the earliest I start is 10 PM, aka right about now.
Sure, I can theoretically start sooner than that, but the RITUAL I have, the routine I've built, the habit ingrained in my system, is to start late at night. It holds for six (now five) of the days I am typically online. (The exception is Saturday, thanks to anime, and also, it being a weekend and therefore the one day I do not hold an obligation of SOME kind.) So while it was not impossible for me to start earlier, the mental inhibition was there and would have to have been forcefully overcome. Because once I start making my rounds, I cannot stop mid-way through; I must see it to completion.
That might sound silly, but in this case, not my fault. Site culture actually demands as much; you must give every game equal attention, and if you don't, you get justifiably called out on it. Obviously, this is a little bit of an inconvenience, since not all games have an equal motivation to be played (though as of late, my motivation is lowering all-around), but it's something that I've learned to live with. It's also my own darn fault for being in so many games, which is why I'm trying to (gradually) scale back on them. (For instance, there was one game that I really wanted to replace into, which had MULTIPLE slots needing replacement, but ultimately, I decided it would be a very bad idea for me to play, unfortunately, with my current load.)
Anyway, I'll have some catching up to do tomorrow, but it shouldn't be too much of a hassle. I also am getting much, much, MUCH closer to launching my ambitious game to run, but as this blog is highly public and read by people who may be joining the game, obviously, I can say no more. (The idea of a game rewarding knowledge of my blogs isn't exactly a bad one though! I just don't want it to happen accidentally, so shutting my mouth on the subject now.)
What I was largely getting at with this, though, was that I had a bit of a panic attack when--in the middle of writing something--my browser crashed, likely due to a background game. (Whoops!) Back when I was working on it, and this was the tie-in to my first subject (I just kinda got sidetracked so the segue failed), is that on the desktop I did this for, that usually doesn't happen, but all the same, I was typing fast enough that I had to wait for any typo.
Other than that, the only notable thing I did was read the first volume of IS, a manga about Intersex individuals. I got a tip about it from a reader of the webcomic Rain, which, if you may recall, was one of the reasons I decided to work on creating Red Hood Rider.
Not much you can really expect, when I got up at 2 pm. That's 8 hours awake, rather than a more normal 16, owing to the extreme time I went to bed yesterday (4:30 am) and the extreme time I have to wake up (6 am) tomorrow.
Soyeah. Pretty sure my computer's warmed up enough for me to post this, and it's 10:30 anyway, meaning just about on-schedule for bedtime.
And I'm actually a bit tired, too! Might not actually get to SLEEP until midnight, but oh well, the sooner I start readying myself......
