|Some place in the village|
The temptation is there to pick up the controller and spend some time on a game. Right now I'm killing my way through Crysis 3, a FPS which takes place in a post-apocalyptic, domed Manhattan. Fun stuff. I'm not that bad at 'first person shooters,' a lot better then you might think for someone in my age group. It's all part of my plan for aging. The results are not in completely, but some studies indicate that there is a correlation between video games and 'hand/eye coordination', something you don't want to lose as you get older.
Of course, if the sun chose to come out I'd feel more like working outside, well, not really. I'm a morning person. I get as much done in the morning as possible because I know that by the time the afternoon rolls around I'm going to want to do anything but work. I was up at 0530 and got pretty much done, but then the clouds began moving in, and the service tech, who was schedule for between 0730 and 0830 showed at at 0820 and didn't leave until 1030. Since then the day has been in a slow downward spiral.
I'm ready for summer, and I have this feeling it might end up being cool and rainy, a bad bookend for the bad winter we just had. On days like this all I want to do is snooze, eat ice cream, and play video games... is that such a bad life? No. But I did really want it to be sunny today. I need to get the weed wacker out and start ripping the hell out of the fence line, otherwise the verge will overwhelm it.
