I'm getting slow in my old ageI used to be able to walk five miles in under an hour. I just did the same circuit and it took an hour 7 minutes. At least I burned all those calories from dinner the other night, eh Kirei?
Battle.net hates meTo those who don't play Diablo 2: You will not get this journal. Here are some pictures of puppies: Link
So I did some runs in Normal, and decided to transfer my gear tonight. Among what I had to transfer was Tancred's Spine, a 2-socket Grim Helm I wanted to make Lore in, an Isenhart's Case, a bunch of weapons and some other stuff. I open up a muling game and run the super-uniques to kill some time, and everyone's dropping everything. I get a rare Halberd with awesome damage for my merc, Cleglaw's Pincers, Death's sword, all kinds of stuff.
I finally get to muling my stuff off, and when I pick up the Grim Helm it turns out the Sol rune was still on my real character, so I decide to drop the helm and pick it up with my next entry to the game. Battle.net picked that exact time to lag my game out, and I lost the helm, my Tancred's spine and Cathan Ring from right off my mule despite getting there successfully (made me scratch my head), and some random armor I'd dropped on the ground to be picked up later.
Alright, but I still had stuff to mule, so I start up my game again and make some runs, then start moving stuff over. I bring my low weapons mule in, and discover I've forgotten to drop the weapons on the ground. I bring my real dude back in and drop stuff, and then I lose my entire connection to B.net. Not just the game, I mean I couldn't get to B.net at all. I think they got mad at me for entering the same game so frequently or something. Lost this time was the unique Fuscina, a good rare Maiden Pike, an awesome rare Large Axe, and some decent rare claws.
Then I decided to call it a night. I don't feel like losing anything else tonight.
Idle hands...I've been getting back in to Diablo 2 this week. I have a level 43 Zealot who tears through stuff like nobody's business and who's just waiting to get to level 48 so he can become even more awesome by putting on some armor with about 13x as much defense as his current armor. It's only a matter of time until his level on Diablo 2 is higher than my karma level here. Sad, really.
In other news, I shaved the backs of my hands the other day because I wanted to make sure my moisturizer cream was actually making it to the skin. I also shaved the tops of my feet, for comfort reasons. On the weekend I had a dream that the bottoms of my feet had hair thick enough to comb, but when I went to shave it I found someone had beaten me to it. Those crafty little Leprechauns...
Pepto AbysmalThe fine people at Proctor & Gamble need to hire someone new to write out the instructions for Pepto Bismol. Here are a couple gems from the instructions:
Repeat above dosage every 1/2 hour as needed to a maximum of 8 doses in a 24-hour period.
But what if I don't want all my doses spaced half an hour apart?
It is hazardous to exceed maximum dose unless advised by a physician.
So all you have to do in order to avoid overdosing is get your doctor to tell you it'll be okay. Awesome!
So my doctor took me off dairy products for the next 5 days, and I've pulled myself off vegetables because their main byproduct is gas which I already have plenty of, which means my diet until monday consists entirely of meat and bread products and water. Anyone got any recipes?
