Eve Vegas

Five weeks until Eve Vegas. I was looking at the Facebook page for it and reading the announcements. 

WIth CCP involved this year it is a much larger event than last year. I'm in a strange point of hopeful and resigned. This will be my third Eve related event. I have enjoyed the previous two. Hovever, neither have been the world shattering events that I had hoped they would be. I blame this squarely on myself.

It might be surprising due to the volume of text I place upon this Blog, but I am a rather quiet and reserved person IRL. I define myself as boring. I am truly happy at home curled up in my computer chair fighting off my cat's incessant demands for my lap. I lost that battle the other morning. However, I normally win. But, back to the topic.

Eve Vegas. 

The last two Eve Events I have found myself having a hard time meeting people. Considering I cannot even bump into a conversation in Team Speak I'm not overly surprised by this. It causes me to hover on the edges and listen. Unless I am burned up over a subject. Then I'll go and make myself heard. Such as the Low Sec talk and some of the Dust talks regarding Molden Heath. Shyness, embarrassment, my distaste for being the center of attention in public all vanish when I have an agenda.

But, I have done a poor job of meeting people. It has been fascinating watching the Eve Famous and their orbit of followers. It is interesting seeing the engagement and interactions of people. I feel that I kind of float about the edges observing but not really joining in.

It made me look at the Pub Crawl which looks to be very interesting. I'm rather sure that I am going to sign up for it. It feels a bit wasteful since I am paying for Alcohol I will not consume. I guess my over expensive soda will have to compensate. I normally avoid social groups but I'm going to go for it. At the worst, I hate it. At the best, I have an interesting time.

And maybe I will meet people before the final day. Who knows. I won't hold my breath. I'm not outgoing in this respect and I doubt I will suddenly become so. But, I will try this. It will at least give me something to write about.

  1. I think the word you're looking for is introvert. I don't know if you've heard of it before or not, but it is a type of personality where one gains energy by being alone, as opposed to extroverts, who gain energy by being around other people.

    1. I know. It is just an easy buzz word to fall back on. I am very much the introvert. Large groups of people exhaust me.

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
