I swear, I put so much more effort into seducing people on Echo Bazaar than I ever have in real life. Real life me would be so much more like, "What do you mean I'm going to have to get my Fascinating... up to 14 every time I want to move on in this relationship? Screw that, I'm gonna go study up on the Correspondence some more."

Also, I had my first fight over loot in a random dungeon. Well, technically SC had a fight with someone over loot on my behalf in a random dungeon. It was a little awkward. I am like the biggest pushover when it comes to loot. (SC basically kept yelling at me in party chat. "Are you an Engineer? THEN ROLL NEED ON ENGINEERING SCHEMATICS." So now I have two more schematics for pets! I love pet schematics because pets are one of the things I CAN ACTUALLY SELL ON THE AUCTION HOUSE.)

Spent a lot of time today back-reading my old baseball meta-type posts. I should, like, pay more attention to baseball again. I kind of miss it.

I also re-watched (or watched for the first time for a lot of the more recent ones) all the Strong Bad e-mails this weekend/week. Trevor the Vampire is still my favorite of all time. OF ALL TIME.

I've also decided that for my Holy pally, while I'm going to collect +INT items to use when healing, I'm going to pick up some mail here and there for use while solo questing, which I'm going to try to do through 20 if I can. I want to get to exalted with Tranquillien, dammit. (Which I believe happens if you do all your 10-20 questing in the Ghostlands if you do all the big boss kills.) I'm going to need to go farming for more copper ore so I can sell more on the Auction House so I can get his bag situation sorted out so he can carry around a whole other set of gear. (Or should I take all mail +str/+stam quest rewards and buy the +int Tranquillien rep armor? I'll have to look at stats on that stuff, I guess, and then start to ~plan.)

Heading to Indianapolis for GenCon tomorrow. If you're going to be there and want to, like, meet up at a particular place to talk about how great GURPS is or to get snacks or something, let me know! I am totally trying to pretend I have friends who are not SC's friends this week, and I am probably going to fail in this endeavor.

So, I was planning up this huge post about what I was thinking of doing at Echo Bazaar once I hit max level for all my Qualities (which is going to happen within a few days if I'm serious about doing only Shadowy and Dangerous things during that time). Do I grind Proscribed Texts to get Connections: the Masters, which I will end up only ruining by pursuing Mr. Eaten's Name? Do I grind connections up to 90, and if so, with which factions? (The Rubbery Men are a given, of course.) Do I save up for an Overgoat? Do I start playing Knife & Candle? Except, apparently, by the time all my stats hit 90, we'll probably be getting new content. Woo hoo.

Also, more Nemesis! \o/

Today I spent like two? three? hours playing one of SC's low-level alternate characters on World of Warcraft. It was pretty good times. Apparently what people needed to do to get me to play this game was to sit me down and have me play a paladin? I do not even know, since I am normally not a paladin player in tabletop type games, but apparently I am for it in videogames? So there's that!

Anyway, so, uh, once I get my desktop put together and running, I might be jumping on that bandwagon. (But I'll be on a non-PvP server to start off with, I think, so I suspect I will not be on a server you play on! Sorry, kids.)

In Echo Bazaar news: I have 37.5% of the prisoner's honey I need to move into the Royal Bethlehem Hotel! Yeah! \o/

Echo Bazaar )

I am having a weekend all to myself for the first time in a while, and I think I'll be spending it reading all the many, many tabs of [ profile] comicsbigbang stories I already have open. Mine is an eventful life.

Still haven't read this week's comics. I'm saving them for when I'll be stuck at the register during a thunderstorm later tonight.

I am slowly but surely unlocking things in Lego Batman, which I have started playing again for no good reason. I actually found the final missing minikit canister in two scenes in the past week, and finally actually finished the minigame version of Gotham Streets (Villain), although not with a good enough time to unlock anything. Blah blah blah, I am bad at videogames.

I am less bad at Echo Bazaar because the point is doing stupid things and seeing what happens. Example! )

Tonight, Evan Lysacek did a "futuristic" dance on DWTS in which he and Anna were vaguely robotic, and Anna was possibly Leeloo, and Evan kept doing terrible robot voices in the training segments. And the same day, [ profile] baylop wrote The Most Important Thing, which is a story in which Evan Lysacek is secretly a robot. He has little robot feelings, and I realize that that sounds totally condescending, but whatever, it's Evan Lysacek, and the actual story was sort of bittersweet and I love stories where people are secretly robots. The story has a lot of issues with homophones, so if that sort of thing bugs you, beware, but I enjoyed it. But again, robots and my feelings about them.

I have been failing to finish the last Fionavar Tapestry book, and I don't know why, because I want to know what happens. Possibly because I am sure things will somehow manage to get worse and more tragic for our intrepid heroes.

Today I also got my weekly e-mail from my comics shop telling me what comes out this week. I AM SUPER EXCITED about this week's comics. I hope they don't suck!

edit: Some other things! I am going to be slowly working my way through the [ profile] comicsbigbang stories over the next however long, and it might take me a while to read all the ones that sound good, but I WILL READ THEM EVENTUALLY OKAY.

I am shortly going to start sorting out who I'm following on Dreamwidth and start taking people off my Default View on LJ so I'm not getting double posts by looking at both friends lists. I'm also going to start, like, actually giving people access/subscribing back on Dreamwidth, which I have been bad about doing because I don't get notifications like I do on LJ. I'm not ignoring you, I promise!
