More about me!
Rules? If you want rules look a couple of posts back...

From pax_draconis

Where do you go from here?

Here? I carry on playing the game. The game never ends.

Actually over the next couple of weeks I find out I'm moving offices, I decide whether I'm going to quit my job, I get asked some LRP-related questions which can be best summed up as Catch-22 and I realise what a stupid hobby running is. Well, at least two of those are likely to happen.

Beyond that I don't know. I'm becalmed. Where did I put those electrodes...

When you discover yourself to be genuinely liked by someone, do you have difficulty accepting it at face value?

Do I need to answer this? Of course. (Thats an answer to my question and yours). I used to think that I trusted people a lot, very easily - and that's partly true. It doesn't take me long to be willing to do anything for a person. However, I don't think I ever quite believe that they trust/like/would do things for me in the same way. It's not a competition - or even something I worry about a lot. But I do sometimes.

I'm think I'm just too cynical for it all, and I keep putting my foot in my mouth, and more than that I don't always like the image I feel I'm projecting.

If you had to choose between tech and LRP, which would go first?

They kinda perform the same function at heart - they are about people. LRP is a way of meeting people and it brings a community and context, tech has a primary application to sustain that when people are not physically connected.

I'd love to say LRP, but I think the truth of the answer would be tech. Stop this world I want to get off...

I've danced around the idea of giving up LRP before - but I couldn't then. God knows what I'd do for a living then mind...

How great a part in your day-to-day life does pride play?

Some - I use it as an excuse to act up when I don't agree with what I've been asked to do - and where pride=professional integrity then it causes me huge amounts of problems. For example all my job issues now are caused by pride - it was part of the reason I left the last one, and if I didn't have it I'd have no problem sitting out this contract, taking the money, etc.

I don't often take pride in my apppearance. I'm just too lazy. Of course at the moment it's too hot too!

What's your single worst incidence of "corpsing" (being unable to keep a straight face at an inopportune moment)?

I can give you four in descending order of bad, worst last:
  1. Every time it happens at NWO

  2. Playing the "Heroes of the Revolution" rizla game at barrettyman's ultra-serious Russian game.

  3. At the first Crooked Eye when my corpse had a moment

  4. Last Sunday morning when Ziusdra went "I'm going back with Kyle... I mean Mithras". It would have been wonderful if it had been an IC slip - and in years to come I might even claim it was - but it wasn't. At that point I lost structural integrity.

I realise what a stupid hobby running is.

Why is running a stupid hobby?

I like it... although I couldn't for the life of me recall why, as I stumbled along this morning.

Cos I'm not very good at it yet and it's far too hot! When I'm good at it and can have as much of a conversation about it as I wish my views will change.

Since I combined it with Kazaa it has been much improved. Yesterday I continued my exploration of the Laibach back catalogue for 45 minutes around South Birmingham.

Finding Trailgauge has also helped as I can combine running with my love of tech and maps.

Mind you, for any LRPer to describe a hobby as stupid is a bit nonsensical.

I thought you said you did 6 miles the other day? Doesn't sound like you're not very good at it to me!

Meep. That looks cool and scary at one and the same time. I use the low-tech solution -- tape measure and a map. Not very accurate, but it gives me a vague idea.

I can't listen to music when I'm running though -- I'd be bound to put myself under the wheels of a car, if I did!

Thanks :-) I'm getting there. Only going up to 13.1 (or whatever).

However all my views of being good come from watching quondam and boglin run proper distances. Plus some of the numbers you've mentioned have been more proper iirc.

If I haven't finished it all by then, boglin says it's nice to have jog on the beach at Whitby. The minor problem being that I think I'm staying out of town - but we'll see where I'm at by then! Last Whitby I completely slept through her clunking around outside my room and leaving the house - it was AM I believe...

But I seem to recall you had An Excuse... Didn't you say something about a nasty cough?

Personally, I think I'll be leaving my running shoes at home next Whitby!

Yeah - I wasn't a very happy camper. It was more "could only just breathe" some of the time rather than "had an impressive cough and sore throat".

I fully intend to be well in November - or at least to be able to stand smokey rooms a bit better.

Well, maybe having done lots of running between last Whitby and next will help with that. I suffer a lot less with respiratory type problems than I did before. :-)

  1. When, if you don't already, are you going to learn poi?

  2. Can the end ever justify the means?

  3. You're on crutches. How did that happen?

  4. You find yourself the only person close to a potential suicide who is standing on the side of a bridge. What do you say to him?

  5. What's the single most defining moment in your diet - what's the most important or memorable thing you ever ate?

You're quite possibly as bored as I am. I'll give it a go.

  1. Which is most like you - the rat or the cat?

  2. Have you done your form for the Kenilworth Half?

  3. Are you ever likely to go to Edwards again?

  4. You're on your back, looking up at the clouds - what do you see?

  5. Pernod. Why? WHY?!
