Men hugging

Awww! <3

How about a change in pace and have a happy, loving image this morning? :D

A Softer World is a great "comic". It's dark enough to be satisfying, smart enough to make you think, and gives a really interesting (and often crazy) POV on the world/relationships/life in general.

I love love love today's strip. Yay love!

i come rough, tough like an elephant tusk.

If you don't follow the comic, the image's alt text often holds extra jokes. I've included it here, just hover over the image to see it. (Would you believe it's been so long since I worked with HTML I had to google to confirm that alt="" was the right format? o.O I used to be able to do all that stuff in my sleep!)

Edit: Hm, maybe LJ doesn't support alt text. Well, here it is. "i come rough, tough like an elephant tusk."

Edit 2: Well, so much for keeping this about love. Um. Humor = love? *stretches* This image is too good not to link to, I'd display it if I didn't already have one image in this post:

Never say that the RNC doesn't get its share of time in my LJ. *snickers endlessly*

I hadn't even known there was an English Fail Blog! I'll have to hunt it down and check it out.

Edit 3: A Softer World put out two comics today! And I actually almost like today's second one better! It made me snicker out loud at work. :D

Quick post! FFXI, WoW

Friday's going to be my race update day!

Adjusted for cost of entering races. Would you believe that third place, even though it pays out at least 20K gil, makes you lose money? It costs 37,200 gil and two hours of RL time to enter a race. So this will take a while! Total to get to this point: 18 RL hours of "free" racing and 334,800 gil spent to make 569,800 gil for a profit of 235,000 (rounded). This is also 9 days instead of 7.

In other 'things that will take a while' news, Catsoup is finally up and running! He stuffed a few sheep this afternoon, got all eight gobbiebag upgrades, got his aketon (whenever a mule becomes a crafting mule, they get gifted with an aketon), and set off to work! A server-wide lack of yellow globe (fish) has me halted at the moment. :/ Earlier today I picked up the last five stacks on any AH (and the guilds are all out), so... yeah. He's level 12 now (I moved to jellyfish too soon, now he's out of those as well). I don't know why I never before saw it as odd that a craft bottlenecks at so low of a level.

In WoW news, (unsurprisingly) I find I now lack time more than desire to play. I found 45 minutes last night and logged on long enough to kill stuff to get 43, but that was the first time I had been on in three days. :/ I activated my account on 8/11, so I have to decide by 9/10 what I'm going to do. If I can't make time to play a reasonable amount, it makes no sense to keep paying. :/ (Reasonable to me means logging on at least once a day, for at least an hour. Strongly don't know if that's going to happen. It's already bedtime and I haven't finished my FFXI stuff yet, and WoW comes after that... :/ )
