Breakfast explosions

I woke up at 0830 again local time. My trusty breakfast of Japanese rice balls accompanied me as I logged on and was convinced to come out in my rupture and do a little bit of roaming.

There was a gatecamp in a nearby system that they decided to breakup. About half the group was near the system and the rest of us ran to the titan to hotdrop. It was not a big fleet, about seven of us to their 6. We had a mix of battleships, battlecruisers, cruisers, and a logi. They had battleships and battlecrusiers. They even had a smartbombing Tempest.

They were baited and engaged. Once everyone engaged we popped the cyno and landed. This is where things got a bit awkward. We didn't spread our points like we were supposed to. I think that the call on the tempest got people distracted. One of our bait ships popped as we landed and when the cyno lit the camp started running for the hills.

The only weird part is that we fleeted with a member of the corp that has wardeced both of our groups. I admit, I'm a bit bitter about these things. I'm all for us shooting each other but the wardec is a bit much. However, I didn't question it and his ship is the one that went pop.

We looted and gave him all of the loot. Classy folk we are. However, I'm not all that happy to be running with people who wardeced us. The reason is more complex then gateguns. Its all sorts of ego issues and penis size problems. It makes me shake my head but I dislike feeling as if I have to watch them as much as the people that are not fleet purple.

The random roams are lovely. I feel so much more informed with what I am doing these days. I still get into arguments about the just dive in and shoot school of thought. I do understand that you have to start shooting and cant just learn but I just can not agree that the best way to learn is to take pure ignorance and try to learn from your mistakes.

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
