You know, I stopped shaving to think of something to write here. That worked out well.

Catching up

Posted by Coop - April 13th, 2013

Well, since it's been a good few months since I posted any news, so here goes with a quick update on a few things Coop-related.

As you may know, I've been in a new job for the past four months. Yes, it has eaten into my Newgrounds time, but I have to live with that and accept that there are bigger things in my life than the internet and my friends I have met on here. Yes, I am still here, I still respond to messages, I just don't spend as much time as I used to. C'est la vie.

I'm still single. Wait, that's not news, really - I just can't seem to find single girls who are attracted to me. Of late, I've found that most of the women I try to chat up are either with someone, or just saying that, because they find me hideous. It could be either way.

Last Sunday, I hit 30. On Newgrounds terms, I'm old. In sporting terms, I'm middle-aged, but in real life terms, I'm still a young man. It's not a big thing, as I don't feel older, but I did get a chance to have my friends and family together for a great day, which was fantastic.

The cricket season starts soon and I have been conditioning myself to be ready. I'm now running about 6 miles a week, plus playing football on Wednesday evenings, combined with cricket training, which has now finally moved outdoors. Considering that we lost two sessions of indoor practice to snow over the winter, I'm glad that things are finally warming up.

Finally, I've done a bit of work for a project that has been floated out by Evil-Dog. He gathered a few writers together and I was one of them to answer the call. Of course, he has other programming commitments at the moment, but assuming that you have a smartphone, stay tuned to here and my twitter account (@SportingCoop), where I will advertise more detail as and when I'm allowed to divulge it.

Ooh, that's exciting!

I'm not OLD! What are you saying? You're still a Spring Chicken in every sense of the words.
Good luck with the Cricket this year dude. I'm sure this year will be bountiful for you and your team.
Also the right woman will find you soon enough, so no need for you to go and find her. Remember, Good things come to those who wait buddy and you must by now realize that when you least expect it, it will happen. Cheers WC.

I'm not feeling like a spring chicken - I keep getting pulled ligaments. Nothing major, but enough to set me back and it's not a nice feeling, as I'm sure you would appreciate.

I've got a few leads, but nothing set in stone for a woman at the moment. Some of my friends have suggested that their single brother hit the town with me on the occasional evening, as we both need to get laid badly (that sure is not a compliment!)

As for the cricket, I hope to come good on the bet that a few of the lads have placed - I apparently will lead the bowling averages, as I am more than capable of bamboozling the kids in division 9 this year!

So that Evil-Dog project is going to be one of them touch games for the contest? Good luck with that! I have no smartphone (I'm anti-cellular, rationed on stationary), but all good games should still be fully playable on a regular computer... right?

If your job is taking time away from NG it sounds like... you need to get a better job! Nah, that's life, just more of these priorities. Happy Birthday btw, and good luck with the quest for ladies!

Nah, it's something different. Evil-Dog has bigger priorities at the moment, so I'm happily sitting here, waiting in the wings.

The job may be taking me away from Newgrounds, but it's giving me more money. The fact that I now spend 2 hours a day travelling to or from work is a big bummer, but the money makes it worthwhile.

Thanks for the birthday / lady wishes.
