At this point, I'm completly unable to focus on work at all.

At least I got one very large and visible bug fixed at lunchtime, so it least it appears that I am working.

Bah.

Edit: Mym's Lunamage is now running around Northrend.

Haha... I'm getting 2 copies of the collector's edition delivered to the office today, and am actively considering going down to the mail room to hassle them!

*twitch* *twitch*

I can stop any time......

Mym just picked up two (regular) copies at lunch, so I can start upgrading when I get home. Then we have Reading Night at the school with the kidlets, which is fine, since that just means we'll probably miss most of the reboots and world server crashes.

I'm gonna level my warrior with da wife, my priest when the guildies need a healer for an instance, and a DK (BE chick named Boitoi, maybe) when I have time.

Already have a plan for our first instance run tomorrow night, maybe both starter ones.

Note to self, do NOT drink while reading your LJ.... that was close.

Also, FIRST! :P

I got the name, and one of my own guildies reported me for a naming violation. Gah.

Understandably, of course. This is an RP server.

Now I need to come up with something else.

I love you.

I frequently have days like that.
I find that "killing the one large bug" in the morning means
that I get no "serious software development" done in the afternoon.

I recommend lots of sugar and caffeine both in serial and paralel.
And lots of web surfing.

You can try. I remember one time you two getting me to drop out of a molten core without much resistance.

Been waiting all day to get home so I can install and start playing. Almost makes me want to cancel out on the boyfriend tonight. Sex? Or WoW? Hmmm...

I can only wish I were interested in the slightest bit to these things called "video games". I have large, wide swaths of time free and so little to fill it all....

:) I too can feel you vibrating with excitement and jonsing from here :)

I went to the midnight opening last night, was in game around 1:30 (takes awhile to install everything). Played much longer than I should have, but the DK, Belzeabub, is really kicking ass.

Bel hasn't made it to Northrend yet, I am waiting for you and da' girlfriend for the grand venture into the great north tonight!

We sat in line at best buy at midnight wednesday night with both the boys, to be the 2nd-5th people in the door and get the 2nd-5th copies of the collectors edition.

Being as how I had to get up at 4 am yesterday for work, we went home and I went to bed... with a promise from elder boy to do my installation and updates so I could play last night after work.

T and both boys were home all day yesterday, playing. Bastards.

I got home at 4:30, after stopping for soda, to be informed by elder boy that he couldnt get the game to install on my computer because it kept locking up.

Spent 30 minutes working on it and established that my DVD drive was dead. Being as how I was running on 2 hours of sleep, lost my temper and spent the next hour being a total bitch while making and serving dinner. To the point where T skipped dinner to root through boxes to see if he could find a spare DVD drive, then resorted to copying the DVD to an external hard drive to try to install it that way (epic fail)

We went to best buy and bought a cheap replacement drive, and he was generous enough to install it for me and do the game installation while I poked around in the tundra on his machine for a little bit. I owe my whole family an apology, but especially him, as i was pretty horrible last night :(

As for the game itself? I love the way the zombies spawn by crawling out of the ground. *grins* Oh... and this expansion has brought out new levels of jackass in EVERYONE.

Online games are just. so. dangerous to my sleeping hours. It took me quite a while to shake the addiction.

Fortunately Fallout 3 came along. heh.

Because of the ability to actually Pause the game, as well as not having to worry about what's going on while you're trapped at work, there's no real comparison between online gaming and single player stuff.

On the other hand Crack is an incredibly rich non-linear game environment that lets you choose your own path, and I've got a great group of eFriends that I love to do stuff with.

Ehh, two years ago I was doing hard core raiding, and spent almost every friday night and sunday afternoon with 39 other people. Nowdays I play when I can, and don't obligate myself nearly as much.

But there's a reason we call it Crack around my house.

Of course

My flavor was/is called WWII Online by CRS. You know how much I like gunpowder age military stuff. This game was really interfering with reality. Everything that moved (tanks, infantry, guns, ships, planes) in the environment was another player (no bots), and the playing field was [i]Northern Europe[/i]. It is still the largest online environment in the world by a few factors of scale.

It calls to me, still.

Except for the death knight starting quests... :P

(Also, RP server? I would have reported that too. /slap)

Hey, so far I've successfully created Holdfast (prot warrior), Quasinart (dagger rogue), thudsplat (enh shammy), Bootblack (rogue), groundfog (frost mage), muzzlehead (orc hunter, currently AH bitch), myboi (be warlock). Can't think of the rest at the moment. Admittedly, most don't get much playtime, but they all do show up in the guild list, and on the guild chat line when I'm talking...
