Hi I stream video of the games I play sometimes.

Not currently streaming. But I have. And I will.

You’ll find me streaming Vanguard, EQ II, Firefall, Age of Wushu, Neverwinter or Guild Wars 2 for now. Any other game I get in the meantime I will probably stream. While I stream my little butterclumps you will be able to hear my angelic voice via the sorcery of technology.

You won’t need to log in to watch when I stream live. (Nor do I think you need one to watch previous recordings.) However, if you want to chat with me directly while I stream, I do believe you will need a log in.

I will do my best to share a link when I am live streaming.

I hope that you will come with me, my beautiful kittens, and that we will go on many fucking adventures together.

I was dedicated to my task. For weeks I had played my tiny little, "DOBBY LOVES MASTER POTTER!", floppy-eared menace with a shotgun. I adored my engineer, and not just because grenades, but also radioactive bombs.

Guild Wars 2 snuck up on me and wriggled its way into my bitter, very fickle, very ADHD oriented toward MMORPG's heart. I wanted to play it and I did--I shared an account with my husband but soon my horrible, incurable alt-itis struck and his meager five slots were filled as I experimented with classes, races (and still haven't caught them all, as they say) and couldn't make up my mind what I loved. Because honestly, I loved them all. I wasn't shoved into a class and told to stay there with my one class preferred weapon and tactics--I had so many to choose from!


But sharing an account was starting to suck moth balls, yo. We couldn't be on at the same time, we couldn't yell at each other for sucking at the ability to jump and find all the vistas and we couldn't have soul-shattering typical couple arguments such as, "WHY DIDN'T YOU HEAL ME?" "I WAS GETTING HIT!" "SO? I COULD HAVE TANKED THAT!" "NOT WITHOUT HEALS." "I KNOW THAT'S WHY I DIED YOU DIDN'T HEAL ME." "I COULDN'T!!!!!@121!" And experience the awesomeness of the game together.

So he bought me my own GW2 account. Seeing as though the only major purchase commitment was the game purchase itself, with no monthly, I think that was a great idea. I didn't need the collectors edition--I'd seen what was handed out with those and they didn't interest me.

So off I go, dedicated to get on the same server as the husband and all my friends because if they all jumped off a bridge in Lion's Arch, yes, Dad, I would too.

That was almost a week ago.

Tarnished Coast is always full. Sad face. SO TODAY I noticed that Jade Quarry was listed High, but not full. And I thought about it, did some research, and thought--"Okay, I guess I will go there. Some RP is there and the server is NA and high activity."

So I texted my husband manface at work, because that's the sort of decision you want to text your S.O when you come to that cross roads in your life--and then attempted to create a character on Jade Quarry.


Yep. Server's full. Probably for the weekend but hey.

Anyway, earlier this week I lost sleep and sanity cutting out of construction paper, by hand, thirty-some-odd autumn leaves, six pumpkins and a cornucopia to hang in Mark's (my father-in-law's) hospital room. I think I've said it before but I will say it again--I fucking detest hospitals and how very, very plain and how terribly un-fun they are. They are needed and necessary, I know. But I can't help but think staring at a wall or a television day in, day out is not conducive to positive thoughts. And I am very sure the brain's happiness helps in recovery and health. The least I could do was put some mother fuckin' leaves on a mother fuckin' wall for pop.

They looked like this:

In absolutely no related news what-so-ever, I am making homemade brown beans in the crock pot, with baked chicken and sweet corn bread. My apartment currently smells like what I imagine a southern angel orgasm might. Or y'know, just what good food smells like. I cannot wait to nom.

In bullet time:

  • Got a mammogram last week. Didn't get a call back until two days ago. They found something they aren't 100% sure of on my right boulder, so they want me back in to do an ultra sound/breast compress. They must not be very worried, they scheduled that two weeks from now.

  • Go to Orlando Friday to get my second set of Biometerics for immigration. (Fingerprinting AGAIN). This is the second set of fingerprints. I will more than likely have to go get a third when I apply for full citizenship.

  • Saving up for a house is hard. We haven't managed to put anything away this year, but we did manage to update A LOT of computer stuff. Our second, larger SSD drives will arrive in time for SWTOR and I couldn't be happier.

  • I have high blood pressure. The Dr. said before he wants to even think of medicating, I am to buy a BP monitor and keep records. Have been doing so.

  • Dr. also said drop as much of the carbohydrates as possible. Am trying ; ; It's hard and I am basically hungry all the time right now.

  • Last thing to get out of the way is Lady Bits. But it has to wait again because our money's tied up in Dr.s

  • Teeth cleaning coming up soon too. Augh.

  • I HAVE PUT UP ALL THE CHRISTMAS THINGS IN MY HOUSE AND I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS I LOVE IT. <3 All caps for excitement! Christmas is coming! Which means a Who Wants A Mel Christmas Card post + Wish list exchange post is coming up.

  • Created a Holiday wish: hoping for $200 raised from now until Jan 1st for Diabetes.

  • Planning and writing HUGE December event for RDI, this time ON PURPOSE and with ENTHUSIASM and less FEAR

  • NaNoWriMo word count sits at 3707 on day 2. I thinks that's just spiffy and look forward to winning another year.

  • If you'd like to read what I've written so far, I have them up at D.A.

    I also have a huge list of writing resources for fellow NaNoWriMo writers, and they can be found here:

    Also spending way too much time on Google+ and Tumblr.

    P.S, have these:
    eeeeexcellent thisistotallysaneguys

    Hi Live Journal/ Dream Journal. I am bad at keeping up with you now--did I miss anything?--forgive me?

    Shawn and I got into the Star Wars: The Old Republic beta, I went back to EQII for a bit and that's pretty much what I do at the moment.

    Clean, game, sleep and game.

    I'd tell you about the game but breaking NDA can result in being banned from the game. Forever. Like: cannot-play-at-release-forever.

    So all I can say is that I am part of the beta. Soooo--hi. How's it going?

    P.S. I'm so sorry b_vainamoinen, I am so sorry, I haven't finished your story yet and I will do my best to get it done before The End of Time.

    I need a new gaming head set.

    Every head set I've ever purchased has been nothing but a pain. I'm too soft, too loud, too noisey, too crackly, too much feedback, so on and so forth. For the past couple of years I've been pretty much using my Logitech web cam's mic--and very rarely because the feedback is astronomical. (Not to mention since it's not a head set, people can hear the birds, my music, my games etc.)

    Last year I purchased this head set, refurbished from Amazon:

    They are absolute poop. I've used them several times, tried several settings, in Vent, in video recording in video chat--and everyone says the same thing: I fade in and out, they can't hear me, or all they can hear is crackling static.

    I sound clearer using the webcam until the feedback starts!

    I need a head set + mic that a) fit like those do over my ears. Anything else--noise cancelling or padded that fit over my ear starts to hurt after an hour or so, and that's not terribly useful if I'm on a several hours gaming jag, or talking to my folks. And I need it to be way affordable. I'd love to be able to spoon for the big bucks for quality and sound but that's not possible, so I need some advice. Picking head sets out myself have just resulted in frustration!
