Okay, the title’s admittedly half joking. I’m only half concerned that my latest emotional slump is something serious. Take that as you half-will.
Today sucked, as detailed in the last post. Well, of course it did — I got minorly sick, telecommuted, did very little work (admittedly, I wasn’t ASSIGNED much work), and sat around refreshing web pages all day. Woo. That’s exciting. I always feel kind of scummy when I sit around in my pajamas all day “telecommuting.” Just like at work, I had no real drive to do anything creative even if I had a chunk of time free to myself — just nothing going there. …in an odd contrast, I got the most excellent skeeball scores I’ve gotten in awhile (usually between 220 and 300 points). It’s like my throwing arm was blessed when the rest of me weren’t.
Put off showering for a bit, slept through an episode of Ed, Edd & Eddy, showered, then sat down and did some PR work. Forced myself to. The good news is that it turned out quite well; the difficult task of setting up the Guild of Middlement replacer (a spawning system that assigns missions and lets you pick henchmen) worked out alright. Re-lighting the Octo of PUTS for nighttime made it quite colorful and mysterious and charming. And best of all… I got to breathe some depth into Talya through her subplot, which is the real start of her romance angle. She’s not just a flirty thief in the same way Lorelei isn’t just a vampy warrior type.
Tomorrow I have my friends coming over for a Great Teacher Onizuka fest, and this weekend is a movie party — both very good things that’ll cheer me up. But if this weekend’s many successes and wild experiences didn’t get me out of a slump, I dunno what will.
Wow, I keep this up and my LJ’s gonna resemble 80% of the other ones out there. All I’d need to add are detailed accountings of getting drunk and hitting the town with people you don’t know!
