Oh, boy!

This is an exciting week for me!  I’ve got an article coming out in ENN , Quantum Rise was deployed, and it’s Grandma Lorri’s birthday party this weekend.

My article should show up some time soon (here it is!).  It’s called “Happy Together” and there’s a pretty sweet picture I made for it.  Prepare to be impressed.  *wink*

I’ve been waiting impatiently for Quantum Rise as anyone in my corp, on my vent, or at my home could tell you.  As a little girl (read: new pilot) all I wanted was to fly an itsy bitsy ship and pwn the shit out of people in PvP.  After discovering the relative uselessness of the assault frigates, I flew an interceptor.  My job was to hold people down while my friends whaled on them, but I was never able to do much damage myself.  The balances QR brought to speed have really seemed to bring assault frigates up and given them a chance to shine.  The certificates were fun and actually pretty helpful for finding holes in your skills.  I haven’t played around with the decorations yet, but just gimme some time!

Grandma Lorri’s birthday is today!  This is Ken’s mom and she’s so much fun!  We share a love of good books , MAC , decadent desserts, and of course, Ken.  Sadly, I’m still looking for a good present for her.  I usually end up giving her a gift certificate to MAC (and who doesn’t love it?) but I still like to keep an eye out for other more interesting ideas.

I’ve also been playing a couple non-EVE games since I lost interest in WAR.  Psychonauts is great!  It’s SO cute and fun, though a lot of the swingy parts give me vertigo and I have to stop and try to breathe.  Also, I heard about this irreverent stick-figure game from Zubon over at Kill Ten Rats .  I recommend everyone come play and donate ten bucks.  Cheaper than most MMOs and hilariously entertaining!  I’m LurbyJo, the Accordian Thief.

I was approached by someone of importance in one of the bigger alliances in EVE about possibly joining.  To be honest, I would love it as the things I could learn and the fun I could have would be mind-blowing.  These guys are all about the PvP and I can only imagine the shenanigans that would ensue.  However, there are seven other people in my corp I have to think about (all right, all right, I also love our name SO FUCKING MUCH).  I just don’t know what to do; I was advised we’d probably be able to merge with another corp but not bring ours into the alliance.  The experience would benefit us all but I really don’t want to lose the closeness we have with our baby corp or our autonomy.  Why can’t everything go my way all the time?  *pout*

    Meh forget that alliance. If you want to be pirates, just be pirates…you don’t need an alliance for that. If you want to run bigger gangs, hook up with piratey friends’ corps. You know what I’m talkin about, right, sistuh?

    Happy birthday to Gram Lorri and curses on you for linking to those games!

    Yeh, I’m the same. My corp is not part of an alliance, but we’re blue to other corps and allied alliances. Being blue allows us to still hook up in fleets and enjoy the fighting together, but without all the hassles of alliance membership.

    It’s the way to go for me, and maybe for you too.

    If you weren’t pirates, I’d invite you to add your corp to the Ushra’Khan alliance. We’ve been taking in a few new corps over the last few weeks. U’K is always looking for like-minded corps.

    Have fun at the party! I’m sure you’ll think of a good gift. If you’re still having problems with it, give some specifics in your blog and the community will help.
