ZvH is OVER. It was a great game, the zombies won, I'd love to play again, but right now I just want to sleep and move as little as possible in the next day or so. Everything hurts, though it's mostly my feet that are really in pain. I've got to remember, the next time I play, that there's RUNNING involved. I kinda want to start working out just so I can try to keep up with everyone next time. And congratulations, Gini! You made THE KILL of the game! I'd twirl you around some more, but I think I'd make myself sick.

Dunno if I'm gonna be at BAMBA long tomorrow, since I've gotta study for a make-up quiz I'm taking Monday morning. At least I can get a lot of knitting done there. I'm about halfway through Rob's hat, and then I've got Mark's, and then I can start seeing if maybe I can get Dad to buy me some supplies for more knitting stuff. I REALLY want to see if I can make that Jayne hat. Screw everyone else I said I'd make it for, I want it for myself! (Which reminds me, I need to get hold of someone's copy of Firefly so I can finish watching it, or at least get them to do a marathon. Someone? Anyone? I'll get the popcorn!)

ETA: Also, I've been really energetic for most of the day. It's kind of starting to frighten me, but I'm also rather pleased that I'm in such a good mood. I think I might actually be kind of happy for once. Does anyone else think this is a sign of the apocalypse?
I think my ankles are fine for running around outside tonight. I managed to roll the right one and almost roll the left last night (yeah, going down steep grassy hills in the dark when it's pouring rain is NOT a smart idea), but I only had to sit for a couple minutes and then I was okay to at least walk. We didn't have to run after that, anyway, since Will was the only zombie who attacked us and that was way before I managed to hurt myself. (He also went straight for me, and I was dumb enough to not have the gun cocked and tried to fire at him. Luckily everyone else on my team got him before he reached me - but I still screeched like a little girl. Damn.) Dunno if I'm actually gonna play tonight, though. The next page is up for grabs, but Oz and Jimmy aren't playing, so I dunno who's going to be out, and I don't think I'll do too well on my own.

I seem to be managing to not completely obsess over who shall be henceforth known as "The Ubiquitous Him", or TUH. It's kind of hard, since I see him pretty much every day, but hopefully I'm not completely delusional in believing that I'm still mostly under the radar, and it gets easier if I remember that, hey, my other friends are there too, and it's good if I pay attention to them. Everyone keeps telling me that being completely un-obvious is bad as well, since if I don't make it at least slightly evident then he's never going to know. Of course, that leaves the problem of HOW to drop hints so that the onus is not entirely on me to say "Hey, I like you" or whatever - the problem being that I am petrified that giving him any sort of hint makes me come off as creepy and overwhelming, and that he'll avoid me after that and I'll lose a perfectly awesome friend. There's no guarantee that he'll have any sort of feelings for me or that he'll find me attractive - history and odds do not point in my favor. But then, having no self confidence kinda does that to a girl. I'm not a very brave person.

I really, really don't know what the hell I'm doing. And I think that scares me more than the possibility that he doesn't like me.

Oh, and guys? If I am going on about TUH too much? TELL ME. If you haven't noticed by now, I will go on and on and ON about a subject that's been on my mind a lot, and if you don't tell me to knock it off I'll probably talk you to your grave. As long as it's more along the lines of "Hey, you've been talking about (insert boring-to-you topic here) a lot, can you tone it down?" instead of "Shut the fuck up, bitch!", I seriously won't be offended. So, please, let me know if I'm running my mouth too much, okay? I'd like to keep my friends instead of driving them away.

And one last note - will the assholes who keep smoking outside my window please stop? I keep smelling cigarette smoke and it's annoying the shit out of me. I should not be smelling this from the third floor.

I couldn't find my Nerf gun at mom's, so I had to borrow the shotgun that Zac's so lovingly dubbed "Never-Fire". I ended up giving that back since it kept constantly jamming and borrowing someone else's - and then the game started. And I realized that for all my worrying about not having a decent gun, I'd completely forgotten that it's the running that keeps you alive in this game.

I barely lasted ten minutes before I went home. It didn't help that I'd eaten a shitload of sugar only a couple hours earlier, or that it was hot and humid, meaning I was drenched in sweat by the time I got back to Davis. (Going up the stairs? NOT FUN.) Sticking with a group helped, but I'm so damn slow I almost got left behind. I don't expect to make it through tonight - but at least I can hum "RE: Your Brains" while playing if I become a zombie. :D

And now, a meme for your enjoyment.

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, or your favorite kind of sandwich, maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions.

I should have posted this a couple days ago )
