I’m knocking on wood when I say this… it appears that we are out of the woods. Neither Hunter nor Nikki have had regressions into the land of Flu, Aidan has successfully been transferred to his father’s house without any more butt explosions, and my feelings of nausea and exhaustion have mostly faded. We’re settling back into our usual routine of frantic. Instead of the other routine of frantic. Um. Yeah.
Mom and Dad are on vacation, and I hope that they’re having a great time. I foresee souvenir spoiling of the grandkids in the near future. ;)
Spent the weekend with Nikki’s sister and family. This culminated in an epic bowling outing that involved four lanes of bowlers. I missed bowling quite a bit, it seemed, and I hadn’t lost my barely-break-100 touch. Heh.
Oh! There are new photos up on Flickr from Yule.
Once again, I unknowingly went a week without logging in to EVE Online. I logged back in last night, and I’d lost the auto-offered mission. The training agent won’t speak to me. I’m really thinking that EVE requires a more active player, and that it’s not really designed for the casual level that I play at. I mean, at this rate, I’ll never finish the training missions for the different careers. So, I’m seriously considering not buying more time.
On an unrelated and yet surprisingly opportune note, Myst Online: URU Live is back up and running. They’re calling it MO:ULagain, and the server’s being run by donations. Cyan once again owns full rights, and it’s nearly exactly the same. There are some more helpful clues lying around, like an explanation of D’ni time, and a clock in (I’m guessing) every neighborhood instead of just some. Either that, or I’m one of the lucky ones to get the clock.
If EVE doesn’t pan out, I could definitely see my way to donating my monthly fee to Myst Online.
Got my speakers set up at my desktop as well. I even found my media hub from Xmas at Liquid Web. Switches perfectly between headset and speakers, and the volume control works. Not bad for spending several years in basements and storage areas.
