A productive night, a plan, and a disturbing image (FFXI, link)

The RL/link first, so non-FFXI people can skip the rest of the post. This may be the most disturbing thing I have ever posted in my LJ. Political... sort of. Not work safe (just barely). No naked bits, no blood. Vaguely sexual image (toy).

I cannot, for the life of me, picture using that as anything other than to throw darts at. If I were a guy, I'd run screaming the other way, not want to stick my parts into it. Gah.

In FFXI, I soloed DRG from 7 to 14. Blah. XPing is so boring, but at least between a ring charge and the XP change it goes quickly. DRG had been my lowest job, so leveling it means I have none left at leather armor stage! That means... *drum roll*... that I could sell the HQ leather armor set I've had for years! Yay space!

My next plan is to get all jobs up to 21, which will mean I can sell off my HQ bone armor set! So three jobs need to be leveled now:
DNC: 16
MNK: 13 (MNK can't wear leather armor line, so it's okay it's not 14).
DRG: 14

SCH (1) and PUP (5) are going to just sit and rot. If I ever work on SCH it can't wear leather/bone/beetle anyway, so it's outside of this reducing-saved-armor plan. PUP is just... gah. I can't stand PUP, the clanky little pets are so darned evil (those blade hands are things of nightmares), I'd never level it. It's bad enough I have to see them around on game.

I guess I'll need to do more research to figure out when I can get rid of the Beetle HQ stuff, since there's no one line of armor that all jobs go to from there. Or maybe I'll just sell it all when DNC is finished with it, since that's the only job going to subjob levels.

Edit: Yeah, it's likely SE will add more jobs in the future, and it's possible I might want to level them, but it's not worth holding armor just for that. It's not even like HQ bone/beetle are all that expensive anymore, and the low levels are so fast that HQ leather armor just isn't needed. Heck, I took MNK to 13 totally naked.

Hold me! D: (TV)

Oh my god. Verizon, do you hate me? Poltergeist is the only movie that ever seriously scared me, enough so that 26 years later (god, could it really have been that long since the movie came out?), just the clips they use in the commercial make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. D: D: D:

I must have been young enough to have been impressionable when I saw it, because that movie pretty much represents "evil" to me. The way the house imploded, the graveyard in the backyard, the bodies in the swimming pool, and the way the furniture moved. (Just typing this up has me in goosebumps.)

I'm an adult now, but I just can't watch that movie. God.

Please please let that commercial not run very long! I can't take it!

Interesting side note: I don't believe in ghosts, so I'm not sure how/why it scares the crap out of me and I worry there might be a horrible poltergeist near me. How could I worry about that if I don't believe they exist? I can't consider that question too much, I have to turn out the lights and hopefully sleep soon. :(
