Oh if it weren't for TMF and FB I would have gone completely stir-crazy by now.


I'm pretty much been doing TMF for 7 years. At times it seemed more like a job than my real job(s) and I backed off from time to time. Facebook is fun for 5 min distractions, but for longterm preoccupation, it sucks.

My drug of choice for the last 2 years has been astroempires.com, but even that gets boring, and I play on all 7 servers.

I've run an ebay business from work. I've written 37,000 posts here, at least 1000 of which have some sort of actual content. I've listened to at least 100 unabridged audiobooks, including the entire King James bible twice and the Qur'an once. I've built and destroyed relationships. I've slept for what probably adds up to an entire year. I've played texas holdem on my cell phone for weeks at a time. I've made sculptures out of erasers and push pins. But in the end, I am just as bored as I was when it all began.

And by today's calculation, I still have 25 more years to serve.

And there is no parole.
