What I’ve Been Up To

…Guild Wars, for the most part. I formally gave up WoW, having hit a wall of No Fucks Given burn-out that’s not exactly surprising after 7 straight years. It was not a bitter parting in the slightest.

My little RP guild shrank a good bit when Pandaland hit, and has yet to recover. I’m a little unsure how to fix this, as all my previous guild recruitment experience was for a raiding guild in WoW, not an RP guild. Still, we’re rolling along.

For awhile my husband was playing with me, but he’s now pretty wrapped up in Eve. And now Halo 4 came out. Yep.

My alt problem definitely persists.

Ranger: 80
Engineer: 48 (stalled due to husband distraction)
Mesmer: 40 (when did Mesmers get fun? omg)
Guardian: 17 (stalled due to husband distraction)
Elementalist: 10 (I got distracted by mesmer, wtf)
Warrior: 2 (DISTRACTED)

I’m also participating in NaNoWriMo, same as I do every year. I’m all caught up even after a half-lazy weekend. I’m taking NaNo “seriously” in the sense that I am genuinely trying to create a first draft that will be worked into a “real” novel over time. I’ve departed from my normal epic-y fantasy into some…urban fantasy paranormal cop romance thing. I am of course completely loathing it right now, but that’s just how my brain works, I’m afraid.

Speaking of those words…I should get back to them…



I was going to write a post, internet. Really I was. I thought I’d maybe run around the GW2 beta weekend event and maybe do something vaguely useful for the RP community and SHOW YOU ALL THE EMPTY HOUSES YAY.

And then there was a POP and my computer turned off and I was like, “Well.  FUCK.”

So instead, have rant about people not knowing where the fuck to place their registration stickers. Have you noticed how many people FAIL at that simple task?  I do, because I live near Chicago and Chicago equals shitty traffic. This means I sit there and stare at the car in front of me more often than I’d like, and I notice these things.

Look. In every state I’ve lived in, on every plate I’ve noticed, the registration sticker goes in the upper right hand corner. That is the only place it goes. When you get a new one, it goes on top of the old one (or better yet, you scrape the old one off, then stick it there). You do not stick it next to it. Or below it. Or in the middle of the plate. You CERTAINLY don’t start forming a LINE of them along the edges of the plate. And yes, I have seen that with my own eyes.

I don’t know about where YOU live, but in Illinois your sticker come with INSTRUCTIONS. Even if you have not managed to absorb the proper location of your sticker through simple observation, IT TELLS YOU.

The fuck, people?

Also, in the time it took me to write this, my husband the miracle worker has replaced the blown capacitor in my power supply. I knew there was a reason I married that man.
