Puppy Update

Hey there,

Thanks for coming on my roller coaster ride when it comes to the dog side of my personal life. The decision to acquire Intuition coming just a week before my loss of Nyx is still a weird twist of fate.

Today, Intuition came home. We were delayed by the snow storm. Let me tell you that I am exhausted. I have shoveled snow all weekend while pacing and stressed. Would we get dug out? Would we get delayed again? I wanted my exhausting responsibility.

The car ride down wasn't bad. We got stopped in traffic a few times for the heavy duty plows on Interstate 95. Once we got past them it was smooth sailing. The GPS took us down some partially plowed back roads. Oh the glares I gave my husband over those. He was agreeing however. We made it.

How big he has gotten. He weighs 29 pounds at 10 weeks and 3 days.

We did all the final paperwork and loaded back up. Temperatures had warmed but we were dropping to below freezing again and the melt would cause the entire interstate to become black ice.

Ahh, travelling with puppy the first time. He was plenty carsick. I had all of that planned out. I'm to experienced at this. Heavy duty disposable shop towels to catch vomit. Regular towels to absorb drool. Blankets for warmth. The drive went super well.

Once home he went potty, met the big girls, met the cats, ate dinner, and now we're settling into our new life. Maybe once we have some natural light we can get some better pictures.

I'm totally worn out but its all worked out nicely. He is incredible. Great temperament. The entire day has not bothered him a bit. Hes alert, interested, and willing to take on more challenges. I'm having to wind him down for the day. I know hes way over stimulated even if he does not realize it.

He did take one nap in my lap. He doesn't fit. My goodness but don't tell him that.

We have a lot to learn. Steps for one. He is heavy and getting heavier. But for tonight we're going to just get through it. I work tomorrow but my mom will make sure he goes out and gets fed.


He isn't a replacement for Nyx. He does, however, fill a particular little void. I think he and I will have a very good relationship.


  1. What a beautiful dog! And a great name, too.

  2. Not a dog person, not fond of dobermen in particular. But he seems like a neat example of the breed, and hey, he seems to be what you want. And since he is going to be your dog, that is the important thing, right?

  3. He is sooo cute! Congrats on getting him home safely. I can tell you are already smitten. Can't wait to meet him.

  4. The second picture says it all. ;)

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
