It's been almost a month . . .

. . . becuz how interesting is "work, sleep, eat, repeat" really?

Okay it hasn't been just that, but it hasn't really seemed like much more either. Teri's still sick much of the time, so we don't go out or anything anymore. Occasional family things that she pushes herself for, but not even always to those either. So it's pretty much we both work, she crashes on the weekends, I try to keep up with a lot of blogs that I read (see my sidebar? that's maybe half of the ones I actually follow), try to keep up with the tv shows we record, and play some mmo's in there too.

TBH, I'm a little burnt out on the mmo genre right now. I enjoy playing EQ2 when I log in, but I tend not to really log in much anymore. I'm not sure why, really, since I really do enjoy it once I'm logged in. I haven't played DDO in over 2 weeks. Warhammer's trial kept bugging out on me badly, so I ended up deleting it, but a friend who's in the trial also talked me in to reinstalling it. It's still bugging out on the graphics, but it's not doing the crash bug that requires re-patching 5 gigs of files anymore either.

In EVE I sold off my CNR and replaced it with a Tengu Tech 3 cruiser. I do more damage and have a stronger tank with it than in the CNR, plus due to the smaller signature radius and higher speed I take fewer and smaller hits anyway. I soloed the Angels Extravaganza 4 bonus room this weekend and barely dipped to 85% shields -- that was kinda nice. Even so... my corp is dead. Some people are talking about selling off their characters and starting over, others just never log in anymore, we dn't have our regular "corp night" anymore either, and.... I'm thinking it's time to leave RFI and find somewhere else to go.

I think that's part of my EQ2 problem -- my guild there is dead too, so I need to join another. I actually was chatting with a friend last week in EQ2 and he said I'm welcome to join his guild, and I think I'll take him up on it. I was in that guild before, but then it "died" and merged into another, but apparently it's been built back up.

Lotsa computer crap at work, yet no specific stories come to mind for your amusement. Sorry.

Also on the home front, the cat we got a month ago is doing well. He and the dog are getting along really well and love to play and wrestle with each other. He's almost to 4 lbs now (he was 2 lbs 4 oz when we got him) and it's all been growth, not fat. And he's got quite a bit of growing to do too. He's rambunctious and loves to both play and get pet, but is pretty careful with his claws. Only real problem is he's a little "bite-y" when he plays, but even there it's not that he's trying to bite, just that his teeth are so sharp that they hurt when he gets you with them. Mostly he's trying to "lip you" with the side of his mouth, but his little fangs are so long they get you anyway. As he grows a lot of his gray is getting more orange. It's going to be really interesting to see what his final color(s) turn out to be.

And that's it for this post. Until next time. . . .
