Living in the twilight zone...

Okay. I lived in Colorado for the first 30 and 3/4 years of my life. All my friends were there, barring the few that left. All my connections, family, peers, etc., were located within a short distance. I could have lunch whenever I wanted. I had an active social life. I saw people outside the office and my immediate family.

Now, I live in New Jersey. When I am in the office, I feel fine. When I am home with Lee and Monkey, I feel fine. When I am able to meet with Ellen, or Tiff, or the other few friends I have here, I feel fine. However, the rest of the time, I feel like I am in the twilight zone.

I can't call my friends and go out for a late movie or a beer/coffee while Lee hangs out with Monkey. The friends I have here can't really go out late. I can't go to the breakfasts I used to attend every week, or stop by my parents for dinner. I stay home every single night of the week, except for coffee for two hours on Sundays. I stay home because here, I have no one to go out with.

I have read all my books, I have watched all the rental movies I want to watch. What do I do now?

Now you call me at night and we set you up on Neverwinter Nights to game with Eric and I. And gossip, of course. Don't forget the gossiping!

Eric is also considering picking up World of Warcraft so that we can game with Ed and Val and YOU, making a big electronic gaming group!

Whaddaya think?

We love you and don't want you to be sad!
