i need to be in nyc

Thanks to my foray into more European parts and my brother’s constant vigil on our dial-up connection, I haven’t had regular internet access for a full month. I can’t believe how long a period of time that seems to me. I am truly addicted to this invention and seem to be going through withdrawl between hits.

UPDATE: It is Sunday, August 13th, 2006 and I’m still in Woodbridge, Virginia. Have I forgotten my plan?

I’m slowly revving up the engines again. I am currently in the process of emailing an old friend of mine to remind her she invited me to stay on her couch while I look for an apartment. I actually responded to her invitation about two months ago but I still haven’t heard back from her. Yes, it sounds like a lost cause, but I shall try her once more.

UPDATE: I beat Street Fighter Alpha Anthology. Ok, so I didn’t beat the stupid little bonus game where all the characters have shruken bodies and cutsey huge heads. Just didn’t seem so essential to me. I did, however, beat the other 3 games with every character … yes, I’m out of my mind.

Just like books, movies, and music, since I am done with this game I’m instantly moving on to the next one. While at Wal-Mart the other day I picked up City of Heroes on a whim. Now, I’ve never played a MMORPG nor had the desire to do so, but I used to create superheroes (the backbone of this game) almost daily when I was a kid so I’m very intrigued. Turns out you can’t play any part of the game without creating an online account and signing in … so I guess I’m about to experience my first online nerdfest! Sigh … just when I think I’m getting cooler by chasing the music dream I find myself about to don blue and red tights and a cape online. I feel like the “even Steven” episode of Seinfeld (The Opposite). Perhaps that will be the name of my first superhero!

UPDATE: As I stated in an earlier blog, there will no longer be any blogs on stanus.net that directly relate to current basketball news. That will be reserved for my new, basketball-only blog, the Mighty Mavericks. It’s still being worked on, and I don’t expect to be spending much time on it at all until the tip off of next season, but you can check it out right now.

Alright, I’m out … I’m sure I’ll be back on in a couple of days because I’m obsessed! Later

    It’s tiding me over through this transitionary phase. I’m currently about 75% done with Hard difficulty (and, yes, I do not move on to the next song until I get 5 stars on the current one). 🙁

    You are addicted to the internet, but you don’t need Internets Anonymous, it’s like a mother’s teat, you just need to wean yourself off of it gradually. Or become Stever and take possession of it entirely, ruling the domain with an iron toinefist.

    By the way, since you never check your email – did you get the laptop power cable or what?
