I work for the State of California. It's boring, but my coworkers are great and the pay's not bad. On Saturdays I work retail, and that's a bit more fun.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to be less of an ascetic homebody, and enjoy myself. (That's one reason I'm on OkCupid.)
I've been volunteering at the Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen, and it's a lot of fun. The SBK is a non-profit, volunteer-run bicycle repair shop where people can get help to fix, maintain, and even build bicycles.
I'm also making a little effort to learn some enjoyable skills with which to stop evil, help people, and make the world happier. For instance, I don't know if there are any anti-evil applications for knitting, amateur radio, or C++, but they have piqued my interest and I intend to find out.
