Aug. 20th, 2002 @ 03:29 am Day of Distraction!
After spending a long day at work, Muffin decided to unwind for a bit before going back to spending time on the project that he was working on. Muffin wondered what potential options there were for him to entertain himself. He could play Super Mario 3, but he had been playing that a fair amount in recent history and had beaten it several times. Going out drinking was the next thing that came to mind, but that was quickly defeated by the realization that drinking costs money, there wasn’t anyone around at the time to go drinking with, and moreover, he wanted to actually get back to work at some point later in the evening. At this point Muffin was out of ideas, so he decided to visit the IRC channel in the hopes of potentially interesting conversations. Kevin was online, and they had a nice discussion about the ins and outs of the abtech pts group and how to access various abtech forums. Muffin was amused by Kevin’s recent interest in joining abtech, and was trying to make things easier for him to fit in so that he becomes a productive and active member.

Muffin wondered where everyone else was on the IRC channel. Usually there were many people here during the evening hours. He was used to seeing people like Matt McGrath, Lee, Flurry or Dan constantly on IRC, and for some reason none of them were present to have entertaining conversations. Maybe they were hiding from Muffin because they didn’t enjoy his presence. After some soul searching, he decided that this couldn’t possibly be the case as he hadn’t given them any reason to diss him like that. Perhaps there are other places to turn to for entertainment, Muffin thought as he turned to IM. Conrad was online and even active on IM, and he figured that he’d IM her and see why the people that she lived with were conspicuously absent from the IRC room. Apparently she was just about to play Diablo II with Matt Wood, and she asked for Muffin to join them. He thought about this for a moment, and having nothing better to do, and completely ignoring the eventual need for work, he dusted off his Diablo II disc, and started playing along with them. This play session was rather productive, managed to gain a couple of levels and find some neat items, not all of which he kept. Muffin makes a mental note to play Diablo II more in the future as he had forgotten how much he enjoyed it. Forgetting things? Muffin started getting this feeling that he had forgotten something. What could it be? He had his copy of Super Mario 3. He had his pants. He did remember to pay the rent for this month. He even had bacon in the fridge. Some more thought ensued, and Muffin had the startling realization that he had forgotten to go back to working on the project that he was in the process of doing. And thus he returned to work after a long hiatus.

aww, kevin's joined abtech? That's cute... i guess it makes sense, he'd make the graduation from aphio to sns to carnival com (however brief) to abtech. It's one of those odd CMU triangle things (like KGB-aphio-kiltie, or sns-aphio-kiltie, or clusters-kiltie-sns or... never mind, it just gets confusing).

I do wish he'd just give in and read ljs. It'd make life so much easier. i do so much miss talking to him.. :P somebody please kick him for me and tell him "daisy sends her love. She says you should read her LJ, 'cause she misses you"

I'd really appreciate it. Thanks :)

He's currently whining about his cell phone being out of batteries. I even offered him the use of mine. He's so hopeless, really.

gah. He's such a whiner. Stupid kevin! Tell him i'm going to start slandering him in my LJ if he isn't going to read it and post to defend himself. I love him dearly, but goodness, he's being stubborn. I'll end up talking to him more if he just would... not be stubborn.

thanks for offering him the use of your cell phone, tho :) just shows what a COMPLAINER he is to not use it. I'm waiting by my phone right this -very- moment. (hug to lee 'cause he's awesome)

No problemo. I always aim to please. I think he should be calling momentarily, to defend his honor. Enjoy!
