Warning: this is gonna be a big ol' post about MMOs and my thoughts on the ones I used to play, the ones I do play, and the ones I want to play. Feel free to skip it if you're so inclined; I'll even tuck it all behind a nice little cut for y'all. :) I know, I know, I owe everyone a big post on my Christmas trip and I still need to finish that 10 day meme that got cut off by my flight back home, and I will, soon. But for now, this is what's on my mind.

MMOs ahoy! )

So yeah, that's all I have to say about that. Wow, if anyone (myself included) is able to actually read all of that, I'll be surprised. XD tl;dr: I have spent a LOT of time playing MMOs and am conflicted with my present situation, and am looking forward to a change in the future. :)

Wow, I spent over an hour on that and still have so much more I could add/change about that, haha, but no, need sleep. Didn't mean to be ranting on this long, whoops. *hops into bed!*

Holy crap, that was just awesome. I'm not the biggest Southpark fan really but that episode was great. Though may it's kind of sad that I understood every single thing they said about the game in the episode, heh. I haven't played it in almost two weeks myself! Such a great episode though. :D

Ugh, I remember when staying up until 7 or 8am wasn't all that uncommon on weekend. Last night I fell asleep in my chair here around 4:30am while talking to [livejournal.com profile] bunnytough, and it just happened again, albeit for a much shorter period.

Today was a good day though, got lots of sleep, played WoW all afternoon and surfed / rp'd / watched movies and stuff all night. I meant to get some writing in, but ah well. Perhaps tomorrow afternoon! Now I need to sleep, and maybe have some crazy dreams like I did last night.

I dreamt that I was wanting to see a movie with my sister but we were too slow eating supper. She was being way too slow and we missed the start time, and I was all >:/. Then for some reason my parents came and got us and we ended up going to Hawaii for a vacation, hehe. I remember crawling around on some beach there and telling myself that it was real, and trying to find my cell phone so I could make a LJ phone post and let y'all know where I was. XD The house we stayed in was owned by the Premier of this province, and he was there with his wife. I think I made some crude joke at his expense before realizing that, oops, he's letting us stay here for nothing and could kick us out if he wanted to, hehe. Then I was just roaming around a beach or something, I forget, and woke up. I felt disappointed because I didn't actually make a phone post like I thought I did. I wonder if anyone's ever done that, like sleepwalking only sleep posting, hehe. Which reminds me of Big Brother and how one of the guys talks gibberish in his sleep, apparently.

ANYWAY. Yes, off to sleep I go, before I fall asleep at the computer again and dream that I made this post but actually haven't. I think I'm awake now and typing though, so it's all good. XD

canadiandiamond: (Laaaaaaaazy!)
Ugh, today was a long day. Work was busy, and I did a lot of driving around. First to court this morning and back, and then after lunch to get some documents signed. It ate up a lot of time though, so I guess that's a good thing.

The last place I went, my friend who works at Legal Aid lives there so I called him up and after I was done with work I stayed there for supper. Mmm, BBQ! We hung out after, watching tv and chatting, and I didn't get home until 10:00pm. It was nice though, a good change of pace from staying in front of the computer all night.

Then I did a little WoW-ing, pushing myself up to 45 which only took like 15 mins. after last night, then doing some cleaning up and other chores. Good times! Even did a teeny, tiny bit of writing, though it's too late to do much more now. Hopefully I'll get more time to do that tomorrow.

Anyway, off to bed I go. Work is going to be bad tomorrow, I can feel it. >.< On the up side, the weekend's almost here, so that's something!

canadiandiamond: (Blah!)
Apologies for not being around tonight. Got home from work and just felt like killing stuff from it, heh. So I once again did a ton of that in WoW, with my friend out in SK. Also made plans to go to the city tomorrow, giving a friend here a ride, but leaving at like 10am. It's 4am now. Ugh. If it were up to me, I'd leave around 12-1, but he wants to get in half-early, oh well. I meant to pop on MSN and stuff but that'd just mean less sleep. I'll be home this weekend, but online most of the time I think, so no biggie.

Anyway, off to bed. Hope all is well!

music!

canadiandiamond: (Death dealer)
So, even more music today. I knew that the new Snow Patrol album was coming out, but upon arriving at Wal-Mart I see that there's a new Paul Simon album out too. He's one of those artists whose work I'll pick up without hesitation (yes, I have a lot of those, stfu), so you can add those two to the Buddy Wasisname album I got in the mail yesterday, the new Pearl Jam from last week and the new Springsteen from the week before that, none of which I've properly absorbed yet. It usually takes me a few good listens to get into an album, and I've got ones from even before those that still haven't set in yet, oy. (Sam Roberts, the Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, etc.) It's all good though, more to listen to now. And I'll be able to test them all out on the next 3 hour drive to the city, I suppose.

Work was ok, though super busy again. And it won't let up anytime soon, I don't think. I was supposed to have a trip to court again tomorrow for a quick appearance to get a new trial date, but the boss has some applications to do so he has to go, and will do mine for me. No sense in me wasting my time if he has to, sometimes he has easy stuff and I get delegated to do it, but his matter is more involved so I'll be the one staying. Kinda sucks, since a quick trip to court pretty much eats up the whole morning, which is nice. Ah well, hopefully I'll get more things done if I stay in the office.

Other than that, I spoke to one of my old friends on MSN tonight and have convinced him to download and try out WoW, hehe. It's funny, as when I got this computer 2+ years ago he mailed me SWG on the very same day I got it, and we played that together in a group with others for like 6+ months straight. Now I'm getting him into something, which is cool. And while it's fun now, it'll be even more fun once he gets into it. Good times!

For now, off to bed, as I've listened to the new Snow Patrol and part of the Paul Simon. I'll listen to the remainder of the latter tomorrow I imagine.

Not much else to say. Court was ok today, the spill over from yesterday, in case anyone was interested, which I doubt. XD Other than that, played more WoW, watched the rest of disc 2 of Dead Like Me and that's about it. No playoff hockey tonight, but it returns tomorrow, so woo. Also, tomorrow is Friday, so yay to that too! I'm really looking forward to sleeping in, though chances are I'll have to work this weekend (part of it anyway) to prepare for Monday. Blah.

That is all. Time for bed!

Today was good, though busy at work. Tomorrow should be better, I do believe. My parents also leave tomorrow, after Dad got here today with my car. Both of them are driving back in their own vehicle tomorrow, leaving me with my newly repaired car. I'll have the house to myself until Sunday, though I may be into the city again this weekend. I'm thinking about sticking around here on Friday though and going out on Saturday, since I have Monday off. That way I can laze around here and do some online stuff, then sleep in my own bed, which is quite comfy with those new sheets and all. :D

The cat escaped today, as I found out when I got home from work, but I was able to coax him out with the help of a paperball that he just can't not chase, heh. Silly cat. It was a gorgeous day out, I think he just wanted to catch some rays or something.

I think I had more to say but I ended up spending too much time on WoW before bed and now I'm all in a hurry to get there. >.< I'm sure it's nothing important, such is my life. Oh yeah! Tonight is the end of the NHL regular season and from my rough calculations I made 3rd place in my pool! I added up my points and the guy behind me, who I was tied with going into tonight, is 1-2 points back of me. Talk about close, yikes. If I do get 3rd, that'll mean I get my $ back and will just forward it on to the playoff pool, which would be nice. Good times!

Now off to bed!

Well, I guess there's something to be said for getting up late and strolling to work at almost 10am. ^_^; We went out for lunch today, and work was good in general. Although I should probably go into the office at least once this weekend... I have so much crap to do this week, it sucks. :/ But today cheered me up nonetheless, as Fridays are wont to do. :D

When I got home from work, I played some World of Warcraft with the best ping ever, for me anyway. And I hit Level 12. Then I scratched these scratch 'n win cards I bought two weeks ago at home, and I won $12. Yay for 12! And then I realized this cd I've had in my hands a number of times costs $12.99, so I took this as a sign to buy it. It's My Chemical Romance by the way, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. So I've got that on now, listening to it.

I also finished the first Anita Blake book last night, which was why I was up later than normally and slept in. But yay! And I liked it, it was a cool book. Now back to the other dozen or so I'm in the middle of reading. >.>;

canadiandiamond: (Boo-urns!)
I should be tired now, but I'm not. Probably because I slept in today and took the morning off as 1/2 a sick day. I did have a cough and a headache when I woke up, but mostly I was exhausted. I took some aspirin and rolled over, falling asleep before I called the office. Oops! They called me at noonish, wondering where the hell I was heh. Oh well, it's all good. But yes, as a result of the mucho sleep I'm not tired now. Which means I'll take forever to get to sleep now and I'll be tired tomorrow. Boo-urns.

At least tomorrow's Thursday, one day closer to Friday. But damn, I have a trial on a week from Friday. And I have to prepare and everything for it. Which probably means working a little this weekend. And it's scary to think about, I hope I don't screw it up. There's been a lot of crap going down at work lately, which I haven't mentioned in here, and it's aprt of the reason I've been pretty blah lately. Plus my 'net connection sucks, boo to that.

World of Warcraft is still cool, I play for an hour or two a day and that's cool. Much better grip than when I played SWG and was logging 6-7 hours a day, even weekdays. x.x Lots to read on the website too, still trying to learn all the little nuances. The only problem is lag, though it was fine today. Let's hope it stays that way.

Anyway, off to bed. I'm hoping to finish the first Anita Blake book soon, ~40-50 pages left. Probably not tonight, but I'm hoping for tomorrow. Here goes nothing!
