This is an exciting week for me! I’ve got an article coming out in ENN , Quantum Rise was deployed, and it’s Grandma Lorri’s birthday party this weekend.
My article should show up some time soon (here it is!). It’s called “Happy Together” and there’s a pretty sweet picture I made for it. Prepare to be impressed. *wink*
I’ve been waiting impatiently for Quantum Rise as anyone in my corp, on my vent, or at my home could tell you. As a little girl (read: new pilot) all I wanted was to fly an itsy bitsy ship and pwn the shit out of people in PvP. After discovering the relative uselessness of the assault frigates, I flew an interceptor. My job was to hold people down while my friends whaled on them, but I was never able to do much damage myself. The balances QR brought to speed have really seemed to bring assault frigates up and given them a chance to shine. The certificates were fun and actually pretty helpful for finding holes in your skills. I haven’t played around with the decorations yet, but just gimme some time!
Grandma Lorri’s birthday is today! This is Ken’s mom and she’s so much fun! We share a love of good books , MAC , decadent desserts, and of course, Ken. Sadly, I’m still looking for a good present for her. I usually end up giving her a gift certificate to MAC (and who doesn’t love it?) but I still like to keep an eye out for other more interesting ideas.
I’ve also been playing a couple non-EVE games since I lost interest in WAR. Psychonauts is great! It’s SO cute and fun, though a lot of the swingy parts give me vertigo and I have to stop and try to breathe. Also, I heard about this irreverent stick-figure game from Zubon over at Kill Ten Rats . I recommend everyone come play and donate ten bucks. Cheaper than most MMOs and hilariously entertaining! I’m LurbyJo, the Accordian Thief.
I was approached by someone of importance in one of the bigger alliances in EVE about possibly joining. To be honest, I would love it as the things I could learn and the fun I could have would be mind-blowing. These guys are all about the PvP and I can only imagine the shenanigans that would ensue. However, there are seven other people in my corp I have to think about (all right, all right, I also love our name SO FUCKING MUCH). I just don’t know what to do; I was advised we’d probably be able to merge with another corp but not bring ours into the alliance. The experience would benefit us all but I really don’t want to lose the closeness we have with our baby corp or our autonomy. Why can’t everything go my way all the time? *pout*
