*curls up and hides* (RL, FFXI)

Lather, rinse, repeat: Work is killing me. By 8 AM this morning, I was already exhausted and stressed out of my mind. Luckily no one else was in the office yet, so I could yell Why. Won't. This. Damned. Machine. Work?! and not bother anyone. Stupid computers, I'd stab you if I could!

FFXI is meh. I never have energy or willpower to do anything anymore. Stupid work, I'd stab you if I could!

Last night I used up the ~650K worth of gold, brass, and leather I had been saving to skill on Chaser. Had expected to get from 88 to 89, but instead just got .4 skillups. On more than a half-million gil's worth of materials. Stupid goldsmithing, I'd stab you if I could!

Went farming with Dani for mermaid parts. Was nice and relaxing and good company! She got all the parts except the so-called easy one -- we got all the other parts in less time than we spent farming the easy one, and it never even dropped! Stupid fish, I can and will stab you next time!

Good news was the update info this morning. My my my, COR got some love! Honestly, I was pretty happy with the job as-is, though I wouldn't have turned up my nose at more bullets. But stronger rolls! Rolling XI = twice as strong as BRD songs? *drools!*

That leads to me wondering if I need to be more aggressive in my rolling. I almost never hit on a six (because basically, if you're on six you have a one-in-three chance of a bad roll: an unlucky or a bust). Sometimes if I'm above six and sitting on an unlucky roll I'll roll again, depending on the odds of busting. I make a poor gambler, as I really don't like taking risks -- I'd rather have less of a benefit for my party than risking busting and hurting them!

Ah well, stupid files are almost done being copied, so time to go back to work. Stupid work, I'd stab you if I could!

Busy day (FFXI)

Before FFXI foo, a funny link! A final project for a college-level multimedia production class: Mac vs PC done in South Park style! Very very funny. :D


Surprise, surprise, we lost Undead Besieged today. It was hopeless from the start (level "10" attack, 8++, advanced at 200). They advanced with about 160 people in the zone, attacked at barely over 200 people, and we battled most of the time with 300. Near the end we got up to almost 350, but there's no way that's enough.

On the positive side, I saw the last HNM! Nemean Lion is easily the least impressive of the three, but I'm happy I spotted him. Shot one, shot two. It was hard to get good screenshots, I didn't want to die to get a good picture (which is why I'm leveling Corsair, not Reporter!).

He's an odd looking critter, but nothing will ever match Hydra filling Parade.

In other news:

Yay! And wow, I loved that quest! Such a nice storyline! Typical ToAU: Funny and sweet. :D I never really thought of the Mire as a pretty place, but I love all the CSs that take place on the lilypads -- no spoilers, I blurred out the text. Especially taken out of context, this is the best CS choice ever... eh, I sized it to use IMG tags, but I suppose I'll link it instead in case some might consider any info from a CS is spoiler. What wll you do? Haha!

Lastly, Seww you got yourself a NM, did you? Fish are silly, but we had to kill him for Dani's mermaid part.
