I have a post-operative appointment tomorrow morning at eight a.m. to see how well I've healed since the surgery on Tuesday. If I'm lucky, he'll take this bandage off my head, and if I'm even luckier, I can wear my glasses again. Going with blurred sight for this long has reinforced my love for the little visual details, I think.

I can tell that my throat is a lot better than it was, and that its probably mostly forgotten the tube they stuck down it when I was unconscious. My voice is stronger, I can sing along to my Winamp lists (which still are midi-less, but I forgot to do what you suggested. ^^;;), and I'm not coughing and hacking up nasty stuff anymore.

But my ear, I don't know. I can't see it, not really sure what it's supposed to look or feel like under the bandage. If mindset accelerates or deaccelerates the healing process, then I just may be doomed to this bandage for another week, or something. I had a hell of a week last week, it was phenomenally sucky. Many of the details are rather private, so I'll spare you that. I will say that blowing my nose was a bad idea. ouch

I'm losing patience with RO. -_- It's up, it's down, it's up, it's down, it's down, it's down, etc. Plus, once when I finally managed to get to the Loki character select screen, all my characters were gone. x_x;;; This is a terrible blow. I hope they come back soon. Estelle was 21/18, for cripes sake, and kowaiyo and Poppy were both 12/something. I'm going to die if I lose Estelle. T_T;

Plus, I really want this lance-type weapon called the Partizan. I want one so badly, I sold my Slayer (a pretty good two-handed sword ... ^^;) and went out to the desert to punch things to death. But since everything is down and up, down and up, I can't frickin' get back to Prontera to buy it! In addition, in order to afford the Partizan, I need a merchant character with me - both of my friends are stuck in down areas or, like me, can't log on at all. >.<;


Anybody want to teach me Greymatter? I figure that'll keep me occupied. That, and I'm supposed to be working on a website for my stepfather, and I have been. He needs to tell me what he wants things to say ... and Silvermask, is your friend back from wherever the hell he went? I want to finish .:!Brainfuzz!:.'s new structure and move ASAP.

I need to update Hammerspace too.

Hiccups hurt. x_x;

[Edit - Oh, I forgot to mention. Some Novice in RO called me a bitch today. I had said "Don't help" when he "aided" me in killing a Pupa. Does profanity make you a big man? Think it's beyond my capabilities? Well, I can curse quite fine too. Fuck you, asshole.]

Gah. Some people on RO are just assholes, plain and simple.

I've figured out several ways to deal with people on RO now... One method is to simply follow them around and help them kill something. Good enough, MAYBE they'll learn their lesson (though I doubt it). Another is when a Thief Bug is around... most Novices can't deal with them, so I simply let it loot everything they kill, wait for them to leave, then loot the Thief Bug for myself. And, lastly, for Loki Kookith... I step back and Heal the Pupa (or Thief Bug Egg), making the process REALLY long, and kill other Novice-level monsters in the process.

Note that I don't do this OFTEN... just when I feel particularly pissy.

Anyway... Loki 'character select' is gone right now, so that's why Estelle et co. are gone. They'll be back Monday, I'm sure. Want to set up a time for Munak Star Bar & Grill? @_@

I saw a translated manga at Suncoast about Ragnarok. It had the same logo as the game, so I can only assume it's one of the first MMORPG to manga conversions!

I see ^_^; The company that did it is doing things right... They're thicker than most translated manga, printed on cheaper paper like Japanese ones, and are left in their original right-to-left form with sound effects left untouched.

I'm really sorry that everything has been going really sucky for you. >.< Don't feel like your the only one though because majority of everything is going sucky for me as well.. >.< I hope you feel better also and everything starts picking up ( It should anyhoo. ) ^_^ and it's good to see your back, sorry I wasn't able to comment any sooner. ^^;

Don't worry, they didn't remove any of your characters. I thought they did that with mine a while ago.. and I freaked a wee bit. but they got it back up..

Some people suck in RO >.< Jus' don't mind them..even though it's really hard to do that sometimes.. o.o; I usually stalk them until they apologize to me. XD

I know exactly how you feel about the RO going up and down, it is a great dissapointment. Hopefully they get those anti-hack/bot patches so the servers aren't down as much..I WAS trying to level up my other chars aside from my acolyte, but er.. that didn't work..since I kept on getting disconected and geffen was in lag hell. >.<

Oh, just thought you should know. <a href="http://www.Tokyopop.com > are the peeps who are distribution Ragnarok : Into the abyss manga/comic. so you can get it from them. ^_^ The first volume is out already..and the rest are still being worked on. the art looks wicked, you can see some preview. and yesh it's in english :D you have a night site btw and lovely art. ^_^

I just finished installing greymatter to the server for the group blog and found this link EXTREMELY helpful:


If you are gonna install grey matter on lunarstarr I think there is some sortcut way I can work it out so that it runs through the scripts already set up in mt cgi bin. Lemme know.

Yeah, I hate how unstable RO is! I hope you don't lose Estelle, cause I know I'd be pretty damn pissed of I lost my swordie Lazuli. I think she's almost at level 30, and anyone who plays RO knows how long it takes to level up! (Without a bot, of course.)

And I know I've said before but I'll say it again... Unwanted helpers suck! >_<;

This is totally unrelated, but ...

How did you get your journal to have an image in the back and have the appearance of the entries being on a separate layer, almost? o_o/^^;

I only have so much longer before my paid account expires, so I want to make as many changes as possible. ^^

Eh? It's just a background pic actually. ^_^ Though to even get into the codes and edit the styles you have to have a paid account, which I used to have.

heh heh heh ...

::makes evil background picture plans:: o_o

Have you noticed whether people seem to "help" certain occupations more than others? In the Culvert, people keep on helping my Acolyte over and over and over, even when I don't need it. -- I mean, sure, it's ok when a bat attacks while I'm eating a bagel, but it's not as nice when two bats attack me and I die anyway 'cause they attack the bat that I'm attacking, rather than dealing with the other one.

Man. It's not helping me level up either, which I really want to do. One more level and I'll be able to teleport to a random spot!! *_*;
