Personal Sagas

I think next weekend we'll finally have our townhouse for rent. Geesh, this has not been the smooth process I tried to plan for back in November. Also, I picked up a silly amount of overtime through the end of this month. I couldn't turn down the money but its complicated everything. Also, I have a new puppy and he does not believing in sleeping the night. However, Intuition is in love with having someone to play with nonstop. Autumn spends her time hiding under our chairs from the obnoxious boys.

Will I ever finish my CSM saga. Yes. I really need several hours per post and right now my day is this:

Get up at 0830 - Walk puppy. Play with puppy. Eat food. Make lunch for work
0930 - Go to work (some days I have to be in at 0830).
2230 - Get home from work
2232 - Walk puppy
2230-0000 - Play with puppy, make dinner, eat dinner, play with puppy, shower, climb in bed, fight for space from Inty and Autumn. Have Inty lay on my legs. Sleep.
0230 - Wake up to screaming puppy, take him potty
0600 - Wake up to screaming puppy, take him potty, feed him breakfast, put him away. Crawl back in bed wondering why I got a puppy.

Normally my mom wakes up around the 0730 screaming fit and takes him out again

That is my super condenses schedule. In there I'm lacking the 2-4 hours I spend editing the CSM posts into a more coherent story! But once I have regular days off again and the puppy sleeps the night (I anticipate that in the next month) so that I am sleeping again and my days off are not spent renovating houses, I'll be back on track.

Until then, I have a few rough drafts on random thoughts. I think about Eve a lot. I don't follow it but I think about it. I truly love the concept of the game and the possibilities.  It is in many ways my ideal game world by concept. The execution doesn't go as smoothly and like my move and renovation project of this last winter, planning and experience don't always give you as much of an edge as you might wish for it too.

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
