Write What You Know

I haven’t really written much lately because nothing “blog-worthy” has been going on.  I’m sure you don’t want to know how boring my day-to-day can be, even if you do want to know that I’m doing all right.  (The few of you left reading, that is.)  So, yeah, I’m doing all right.  Strutter and I are a team in our workplace’s “Biggest Loser” event, and we’re doing fairly well.  I think we’re in second place overall.  The downside is that Strutter is already tiny, and can’t really lose much more weight, which means the home stretch is going to based completely on me.  (The other downside is that she’s a freaking Nazi when it comes to watching me eat at home!)  The upside, though, is that I’ve lost weight.  The last update I’d given on my weight here was when I dropped to 299.  After that, I sort fell off the wagon and climbed back up to 330.  Now, I’m back down to 297.  There’s like eight or nine more weeks to go, so we’ll see how much I can lose, but right now it’s a little over five pounds per week.

Aside from that, there really isn’t much going on in my life to talk about.  Unless we open the door to that dark place…  you know the place I’m talking about.  (No, not THAT place, Len.  Not quite that dark.)  I’m talking about the Game Room…

I don’t hide the fact that I’m a gamer.  Instead of watching television, I sit down at the computer.  Television has it’s place, of course.  I love watching Chuck, for example.  But mostly, television is just something to do to pass the time.  With a game, at least I get to participate in, if not control, the story.  And I like being in control.  (I promise you we aren’t going there, Len.)

And so, I’ve created a brand new post category on my blog.  Three, actually.  Stuck in the Gameroom, with two subcategories.  One for Video Games, and one for Tabletop games.  So now I can write about things I’m doing, what games I’m playing, how I like or dislike them, and pretty much alienate every reader I have left.  (Except Cap, because I know she likes Fable.  Although I don’t know if she still reads this, what with her being all busy with the job hunt and stuff.)  But at least I’ll be writing again, and I do like writing.

    Awww. 🙁

    So you’re trying to get rid of me, huh? 😉

  2. Not at all. I’ll still write “normal” posts. But at least this way I’ll be writing in between those. So you’re not going anywhere. 😉

  3. There’s still a few us around who like games. Bonus for me, I seem to have the uncanny ability to decide to visit your blog only when you post something new. Looking forward to seeing what’s up in Stuck’s World of Games.

    Congrats on the weight loss! Best of luck to you & Strutter in the competition. Oh, please tell her I said hi!
