I could get into this thing
Today, in some fit of entirely rational "not-a-fat-person" logic , I decided that I should do a long run after work. See, tomorrow I'm unable to go to the gym after work. Saturday I'll be working up plot for a V:tM game and updating my webpage. Earliest I'll have for a run is Sunday and, as Sundays tend towards super lazy days, I might not have the motivation to run at all, let alone more than three miles.

Thus, I hit the track.
Now, if you were a normal person in my situ, you'd be satisfied going that distance since you've only run 5 miles once and walked a decent portion of that to boot. But you're not me nor am I normal. I figured that, since I managed a 3+ mile run through hilly territory with only 500 ft of walking, I could totally manage 5 little miles on the flat little track without stopping at all.

Well, I did.

Booya.

Let me tell you, the subjective distance between 50 laps left versus 4 is palpable. 4 felt just dreadfully far. Then 3 felt so close which was totally stranger.

Ah, Vampire game eh. I should have guessed. Do you want the more esoteric books, like laws of blood and crap?

Okay, I'll try to get it all up tonight, but I"m not sure if I can. Bandwidth limits and all.

The tubes aren't big enough for all my law breaking.

Goddamn Alaska. It's their fault.

Thanks for doing all this, by the way. I enjoy breaking laws with you. ;)

Hey not at all. How can I not help further good RP? Though you should tell me about the game.

I had a glorious time creating a character for V:tM when I was a junior in college, but after that I got bored with it. I think I only played once. Though the guy who was running the game was a moron, so that may have accounted for my displeasure with it.

My games were legendary at my college. ;)

Vampire: the Masquerade? I have a bunch of books for that, actual physical copies. Let me know if you want to borrow some.

Do you do any other gaming, good sir?

A enjoy gaming but am not currently involved in much outside of the weird short-term thing I'm doing with a few people Saturday night.

I enjoy D&D to some degree. Love the WoD games. LOVE Exalted.
