Mutton, mutton, who has the mutton? (FFXI)

I didn't have time to post this last night. It was a very profitable night, XP-wise. I made about 2,000 XP (solo'ing), and I'm about 200 from level 12 (woo!). I did the math while I was walking this morning, and I figured out that I killed about 130-140 monsters last night! Rarrr!

(I didn't have time to resize the screenshots, sorry. I just uploaded them before work this morning.)

I decided that goblins are really sort of cute. Too bad all of them must die. But the best part of the night was when I started killing sheep! (The sky is as red as their blood! Ha!)

Get this: Not only did I kill sheep, but at one point a second one attacked me while I was fighting the first one! And then the first one put me to sleep! Of course both attacked me while I was asleep! But was it doom? Was it gloom? Nope! Those woolly fools couldn't touch me! Miss, miss, miss, miss, miss. When I woke up, I killed the both of them! Rarrrr! Mighty mage!

I encountered a new monster I had never seen before! Enchanted bones, a verson of the very same thing which killed me in the mines on Saturday night. Apparently I hit him in the crotch... though I suppose that's not a problem anymore when you're nothing but bones. It seems to have made him mad though!

My computer crashed overnight, and so I logged back on this morning in hopes that either the egg event was still going on or that all my eggs had sold before the crash. The event was over! YAY! And my eggs all sold! (Even though it was only for 200 each, I had five of them! Another 1K!) I'm very, very, very glad the event is over. I made about 15K on those silly eggs (I have almost 30K in cash now), but I had to stay logged in overnight and through the work day -- this means I generally couldn't check email before work and before bed, which was a pain. The money was good, but I'm very glad it's over now.

Speaking of money, I guess I'll go ahead and get the spells I had been skipping. (All the bar- ones: Barstonra, Barsleepra, etc.) They seem mostly worthless, but I guess down the road they might come in handy. (Hm, Barsleepra before sheep-fighting? Might be a plan!) Too bad the level 12 spell sucks (Barparalyzra), but 13 should be handy (Slow).

I have my macros planned out (figured out at work yesterday), but I didn't put them into place yet. I did set up one for fishing though, with a built in /wait and /echo to me. Handy! Hit level 5 in fishing, too (but broke my expensive rod! Bah! Using a cheaper one now, but will probably get the more expensive one again when it breaks.).

Slightly annoyed: Some little catgirl NCP wanted three sheepskins, she claimed she'd "make me something nice with them" if I got them for her. It was only last night that I could finally get enough of them, so I ran back and gave them to her. First she said she wanted to eat them (!!! Catgirl bitch! You keep that mouth of yours off my hard-won leather!), then she finally made me the item. Very nice gloves! ...which only fighting-types could wear. Bah! Sold them off.

It's a pain in the butt that the NPCs who want things are spread from one end of the city to the other. The flint guy is in south Sandy, the bat wing guy is in the industrial area of north Sandy, the rabbit hide guy is on the opposite end of south Sandy from the flint guy, and... hm. What's in the port? Maybe nothing, other than the magic shop? Plus, they each give only ~100 for 2-4 of the items they want. 100 gil! Hardly worth the effort!

I'm not sure what tonight's plan is going to be. XP up to the next level and through the de-leveling zone, but that shouldn't take too much time. I have the second Prince of Tennis musical that I'd like to watch... maybe I won't stay logged in to the game all night! (That'd be a first!) I'm going to need to find tougher things to fight, I suppose. Sheep are only giving me 21 XP each! Everything else (hares, goblins, worms) are tending to give me only 12 XP each. :( Oh! I forgot, last night I decided I wanted to go all the way south to the tomb again, and see if I could handle that on my own now. Might be good XP there, assuming twenty goblins don't all attack me at once.
