“I am putting myself to the fullest possible use…”

The full quote is:
"I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do."

Movie quote. Who said it? In what Movie? What year was that movie released in the USA? Answers in next week’s post.

Health and Well-Being: I’m okay. Mhari’s got a broken tooth from a while back that has abscessed and she’s on pain meds and anti-biotics in prep for getting it taken care of early next week. So she’s getting more sleep, in some cases more than her body wants, so her sleep cycle is a little messed up. My sleep is… strange. Last night was better than Wed Night, but that’s easy, because for whatever reason I was throughly time-jiggered… waking up a lot thinking I was asleep longer, or otherwise out of sync with how much time had passed. Lots of REM-sleep, just with a real strange disjointed feeling.

Eve Online: Well, my #2 character has been moved to my #1 character’s account and account #2 closed. Around this time next week, character #3 will get moved to account #1 as well, filling it. Account #3 will cease to be active as of May 5th unless the Power of 2 time gets extended, which I strongly doubt. At that point I will finally be down to one account again, which I can easily justify for a while to keep, unlike three accounts for a game I don’t play much.

City of Heroes/Villains: Wheeee! It’s been an invasion week. But I can’t say I’ve done a lot with it. Maybe I am already invasion’ed out again. They will be gone for a couple of months and be back in August I think. May will be anniversary time and they are talking about announcing ‘something’ this coming Monday, which is the official 4th birthday for the game.

Our regular sessions went good again this week. We’ll likely do the Katie TF as Thrilling Adventures on Monday if something doing with the anniversary doesn’t side track us. And Wed night Knight and the Angels went very well. I had us start up the Portal missions with Tina out in PI. We did two different EBs, the Psychic Clockwork King and Adamaster (or however he is spelt), the Pantheon EB. It is SUCH a joy to do these missions with a VERY practiced team like this. 1 Tank, 1 Scrapper, 2 Defenders and a Blaster. It worked VERY well and while we did suffer a case of one teammate KO’d at one point, it was not something that caused anyone a major setback. This was just night and day from the last time I did these missions, where it was just myself solo or duo’d with only 1 other. Or with a dysfunctional Pick Up Group. This was fun and yet challenging at the same time. It’s the way a MMO SHOULD be.

“He was smoking bananas. He gets very upset when he talks to ‘Him’.”

Movie Quote! Who said it? In what movie? In what year?

Health and Well-Being: More of the same, with too much heat over the weekend and cool to cold weather during the week. And the weather folks are talking about it being REALLY cold, for spring, this coming weekend. The rest of the week has been the usual mix of sleep (with some lack thereof), back pain, allergies and stress of various flavors. All in all a normal week in the health side of the world.

City of Heroes/Villains: More of the usual teaming this week. More hyping of the upcoming Issue 12 as well as the announcement of a way to get more character slots per server. All in all it was a good week for the game, though I was often doing other things with my time on non-team nights. Last night, for example, Mhari and I watched a movie, and some of its special features, then I went to bed. I needed the sleep, but woke to some semi-sharp back pain. It’s eased off without any pain meds already, so likely just came from sleeping hard and/or in a strange posture.

We haven’t played our new husband-wife team this week, but we might this weekend some. We’ll see.

You may or may not notice that there are no mention of any other games this week, that’s because they went unplayed this week. And I haven’t missed them. Likely this means neither of them are long for remaining installed on my machine, and even more chances of stopping subscriptions where paid ones are in place. In fact, that reminds me I need to move the character from Eve #2 to Eve #1.

Quote: "Did you wanna borrow my pajamas?"
Said by: Lazlo Hollyfeld, played by Jon Gries
From the movie: Real Genius
Which was released in the USA in the year: 1985

Thanks for reading! See folks next week!

“Did you wanna borrow my pajamas?”

Yes, of course it’s a quote from a movie. Who said it in the movie? What movie is it from? And in what year was that movie released in the uSA? The answer will appear in next week’s post.

Health and Well-Being: Well, both Mhari and I have done ‘nominal’ this week. Tired some days, icky others, and just fine most of the time. No major happenings. My work continues to be stressful and I doubt that will change. Mhari’s surgery is slowly looming closer and she’s going through the various slew of doctor appointments that lead up to it. That leads to stress for her. But there have also been a number of tests and things that have come back as ‘normal’ which have helped settle her mind. She’s like me, I don’t like going to the doctor and having extensive tests because I am always afraid they will find something serious that will further complicate my life. So in general I prefer not to go to the doctor so I won’t have any of those tests done.

Mabinogi: I didn’t get to really do much with this, this week. I signed on Sunday and my character turned 13 years old, meaning that it is my 3rd week in the game. I went out and killed foxes for a while, trained up a skill, and then logged out as I had other things to do. I want to spend some time in the game using passes to play some of the dungeons so that I can try to get a better feel than the game has given me so far. After all, it IS free to play. And it’s different. But this is going to sit by the wayside, for the most part, I suspect. I have a lot of other things to do.

Eve Online: Well, the time is approaching.. sometime late next week I will be transferring the character from my #2 account back to my #1 account and shutting the #2 account down. #3 account still has until May before the Power of Two runs out and I transfer that character back to the #1 account. But other than logging in to change the skills I am training, I haven’t really been playing this game this week. It’s like with Mabinogi, I just have other things to do with my time right now. I still plan to try to get some dual box time with at least the two remaining accounts soon. But it’s looking more and more like I should just cancel it all and save the money.

City of Heroes/Villains: Other than the usual Monday and Wednesday hero teams, I’m not really spending a lot of time here right now. Yeah, I have been playing my new blaster, Moon Lynx some. And Mhari and I are planning to start a Husband and Wife team on one of the other servers, likely Virtue, to play when we don’t feel like playing any of our other characters. The big news this last week was that Zefel’s Full Dark over on Protector (villain side) hit level 50!!! Way to go Zefel! Now she will be ready for playing the new Villain archtype when it comes out with Issue 12.

Naturally, I am pulling a quote from this film because of the coming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull that is coming out late next month.

My favorite quote from the trailer: "You’re a Teacher?!" "Part Time."

That’s all for this week! Thanks for reading…
