Mmhmm, ADD post from hell coming up. Be afraid.

I am le tired, due to having been up all night and then stupidly attempting to get 15 minutes' worth of shuteye without first actually turning my alarm -on- (as opposed to just setting it), so slept for an hour and a half before waking up and blazing out the door to work. Worth it though, I think... went along on one of Atmos' PUG MC runs, got myself a [Striker's Mark], a Lava Core and a Fiery Core (I should be a good girl and send them to the guild bank, but I really need mount money!)...hung out afterwards and explored the Caverns of Time with Brian and Quin. That's such a cool new area, and I'm incredibly excited for it. Also found the Dark Portal out in whatever the area name where Nethergarde Keep is (Blasted Lands?). That is one darned cool-looking portal! I have some really nifty screenshots that I'll have to make into wallpapers or something.

Need to figure out how to make my video card not suck quite so hard. It's a damned good card, but for some reason I can't configure it to give me more than 15fps. It's been long enough now that logically someone can shed some light on this...

Got False to 300 herbalism, and took advantage of the assloads of herbs that I farmed up in the process to make probably 60g worth of potions (not to mention selling the plaguebloom and dreamfoil outright). I'm trying this as an alternative to farming Silithus... at the very least it has novelty going for it.

Starbucks seems to have redefined "dry" to mean "pour in as much milk as it is humanly possible to fit into that cup." I've been getting the heaviest dry cappucinos lately... one more and I really am going to say something.. this morning's fortunately escaped tasting like nothing but hot milk, so I didn't feel like caring that much.

The new Ego Likeness album is fantastic. I can't stop playing it. It's this perfect combination of bass and mellow vocals that makes it so easy to listen or dance to - really, really good. Now if I could just find my good headphones, I'd be all set.

Am thinking that I will add a custom-painted iPod nano to my list of soon-to-be-purchased guilty sins, as long as I'm already hitting up colorwarepc for my laptop. I need a new mp3 player, I know that my iPod software works (as opposed to trying to find linux-y software for some random brand of mp3 player. Sorry, but I'm not that masochistic), and heck, who can resist a matching laptop and mp3 player?

I want this. Check the 2nd picture, with the fishtail skirt - I want that too.
Not that I have anywhere to wear it to, more's the annoyance. Karma, I'm coming to visit just so that I can go out someplace worth wearing half of my wardrobe to!

I want a 360 too, and am dangerously close to buying one. My sole restraint at this point is the honest wonder whether I'll actually have time to play it, without resorting to first constructing a time machine and all that. Since it's not like I don't have other tasks on hand ... finishing my cloak (that's a big one, since it's sort of taken over my living room), doing laundry, there's some stuff on this website that I want to fix/upgrade/implement, and oh, play WoW. Right. Because that's not a full schedule or anything.

Christmas is coming entirely too quickly, and this is problematic. No luck on shaking off pager duty that week, and honestly I think I'm ok with it. It is going to severely SUCK to try to pull it off while at home, though... I think I'm not going to enjoy it at all. It's sort of hard to be a nice, normal, stressed-out sleep-deprived workaholic bitch when your grandpa is downstairs politely asking for some help cutting up the salad stuff for dinner, you know? All I want is to be left alone during that week, and that is exactly what I will not be getting. If I had my way I would go up for the TSO concert, say Hi and give people their presents (which I have yet to get. Shit!), and then come right the heck back home on Saturday morning... don't think that's going to happen.

UI mods are still broken. Most of them, anyway. I want all of Titan Panel back (it's only half-functioning as of yet), and I want my arcHUD, and also Serenity. Rawr... at least CTRA works for me, last night's MC was kind of funny in that a lot of us really discovered how much we depend on notifications like "**Damage reflection for 10 seconds**" flashing across our screens at 30-point font at crucial moments to keep us alive. We got through Domo by the skin of our teeth - I think there were 3 people up at the end, and noone was actually tanking Domo himself... O_o

Heading down to Maryland this weekend. Really have to get to the bank today. Should really find some work to do and then go do it. The car's behaving nicely, thank you :)

Informative, but not convincing. Something is missing but what I can not understand. But I will say frankly: bright and benevolent thoughts!....

Is anybody strong in radio here? We need a colleague who would tell us briefly about the transistor T2. I hope there are radio amateurs here. If it`s not on the subject at all, then I`m sorry. I have to write because I have no choice. PS: if the spelling is not right then also I'm sorry, I'm just 13 years old!....
