Phew

Let me tell you, spending a month working on a house is exasperating. We closed December 21st. I ad five more days of work and then I took 3 weeks off. We've done a lot. Not as much as I had hoped but one does come across unexpected events while renovating.

In some ways I'm horrified by how gross the previous owners were. There is so much cleaning and differed maintenance. The house is just drinking in the care. And the money. Yeesh.

I'm back to my normal work schedule. Sadly, my free days are still spent at the house. We have the kitchen floor to finish and the half bath on the main floor before we can move in. Hopefully, we will be done those things by next weekend and we can finish packing and start the moving process.

Of course, the side effect is that our current place needs to be cleaned up and we are going to try our hand at landlording.

But, I'll wander back to writing and maybe poking my head into Eve again now that my schedule is starting to return to sanity. 10-12 hours a day working on the house has left me feeling not quite as young as I once did.

Bonus update on Intuition. He was modeling the stairs I was staining (staining is done, now I have to repaint the white. I'll do the rails and banisters after we move.)

  1. Thats a pretty doggo and looks like a nice house as well. Best of luck with the landlording too.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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…
