Fireworks

Oregon is a backwards state. We can't pump our own gas, there's no sales tax, and fireworks that go more than 12 feet in the air or explode are illegal. But if you're near the border of Washington like I am, that doesn't stop fireworks enthusiasts from obtaining illegal ones and they light them off anyway. Creating big huge thunderous booms. Here it is, the night of July 2, and there are people lighting them off. I can hear them. Our poor dog has to suffer because she's scared of them. Tomorrow, mom is going to get one of those Thundershirts you hear about on TV. It's worth a try, since this stuff called "Rescue Remedy" doesn't seem to help any.

 

I'm still zoning out to the newish Nine Inch Nails music. With an occasional boom of a firework going off. I bet this year is going to be better than normal July 4 since most of the big firework shows in my area are cancelled due to covid-19. When all the fireworks are said and done with, I have decided I am going to continue programming again. This time I am going to focus on Quest of the Cranberry for the Channel F. I keep having dreams where my computer breaks down and doesn't start again. The one I had last night felt so real. I was like "Oh man, now it's happening for real," but I woke up a few hours later to my surprise. I don't know whether all the stuff I use to make games will work on a Mac or not. But when my computer goes to the great computer dump in the sky, I don't know what I'll do. So I'll decide it then.

 

Why July 6 for programming again? I don't want to upset the dog with my yelling at the stupid computer. The stupid computer has been slower recently. I don't know why. And if something I try won't work (which is usually what happens), I used to get mildly angry. So now I've started thinking "You know what? It's not like any homebrew game publisher is going to show any interest in anything. Well, except for occasional 2600 games, and the Channel F, and the Game Gear stuff. So I'll focus on those and quit wasting my time making Jaguar and Odyssey2 games nobody cares about. That and I really want to get Frank the Fruit Fly for the Pokemon Mini finished since I've worked so hard on it the past couple of years.

 

I don't know what to do. I get so sleepy and I sleep for 12 hours. And right now, usually that 12 hours is during the DAY. There was a time not too far long ago where I would be sleeping right now (it's Midnight as I write this). But I guess that's what happens when you go to sleep whenever you feel sleepy and wake up when you want to.
