Wouldn't Ya know
The rain has returned. I woke up this morning and did my stretches and workout, but didn't go on my bike ride because I didn't wanna get soaked. Instead, I played a little bit of the RF Online 10 Day Trial. While I try to recover from yesterday's bad day on EVE Online. I think RF Online looks pretty, but my gosh you level so slow! And the interface is a little clunky for me to learn. I like games with the WASD movement better than "hold your mouse and click" movement. I doubt it is something I'll play any longer than the free trial...but I said that about Eve too. Most likely when my hubby wakes up we will both be playing Eve together. I found some new freebies to share with you today...

Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away!
The sun finally came out in Ohio today, and we had a nice day. Too bad I was at work. Don't get me wrong. I love the rain. I find rain is relaxing and renewing and generally the rain makes me pretty happy. We've had close to two weeks with rain and clouds here, so it is nice to see the sunshine back. I hope to be able to get out some tomorrow and ride my bike.

Sucky Day On Eve Online
Our Corp (guild) was planning a big operation today with our alliance. My hubby and I showed up, but our alliance members who were supposed to be there to help escort us through pirate space did not show up. Our corp leader made it through the pirate space just fine by himself. So I thought...sure...what the heck, I'll try it too. When my husband and I went we got blown up and podded. =( I hate it when people don't do what they said they would do. Oh well...tomorrow is another day.

The Da Vinci Code
Well another movie based on a book has been relesed before I got around to reading the book. I know from experience that the movies leave out sooo much that was in the book. I probably will go see the new movie soon, and if I really want to know more, I can get the book from the library or Amazon and skim-read it to get the rest of the story.
Tonight is the second day of closing three nights in a row at work...blah! blah! blah! At least I get to sleep in a little and then get a morning workout in. I like a not-so-rushed morning.

My friend Johnny at work introduced me to my newest addictions...Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2. What a cute game!! I'm currently working my way through the first one now. I usually don' get much into console games...I used to only play DDR on my PS2. But all that has changed. I'm enjoying this game immensely. Kingdom Hearts has such gorgeous graphics that I can't get over the fact that its on a PS2!! The story just sucks you in. I wish I would have tried KH sooner.
R.I.P. - My Secondary Computer
Last night, my secondary computer...the one I had the hard drive problems with a few days ago...decided to bite the big one. I'm pretty sure the motherboard is bad. I used that computer for email, ventrilo, downloads, IMs, etc. I'm going to promote my laptop up to fill that role for now. My main game PC is working fine *knock on wood*. Or maybe I could get a new Dell... hmmm...

Owie My Head Hurts!
I've got a really bad headache today. Hopefully the Tylonol I took a while back will kick in soon. I feel hot too, like maybe I've got a tiny fever. Blah! I should go lay down, but then if I go to sleep this early, I'll wake up at 1AM or so and be up all night.
I did make it through 8 hours of work though. Today was my early day where I come in at 6am and stock the new DVDs and CDs that came out. I'll list them here for you to check out...

Happy Mothers Day!
To all the Mom's out there who read my blog...Happy Mothers Day! It's nice to have one day out of the year where you are recognized for all the things you do! =) My day was really nice. I spent most of the morning relaxing (and playing some on the computer of course). Then we went over to my brother's house and had a nice dinner with Mom and the family. AND BONUS! I didn't have to cook tonight (Thank you Toni, it was really good. heehee)

Hard Drive Blahs
It's day number two of my glorious three day off weekend! I started off right this morning by doing my stretches, workout and a bike ride.
I played a little bit of EVE Online, and settled in for a relaxing morning and afternoon. Little did I know I would be playing Computer Repairwoman! instead. My secondary computer decided it wanted to show me the "Blue Screen of Death" with little white letters telling me "Hard disk error:Unknown". My BIOS was having problems detecting that drive as well. I was able to coax Windows back up briefly, and backed up my documents, some pictures, and some music that I had not backed up perviously. Then I ran Checkdisk, and it would just freeze up. Yep, my long time 20gig hard drive bit the dust. I have a 120gig hard drive in that machine with it, and that drive is ok. So now I'm putting Windows on the 120gig drive. Yay Fun! (or not lol) The bright side of all of this is that with a new Windows install everything should run a bit faster now.
My main machine, thank goodness, is running just fine. *knocks on wood*

Well, it is a lousy rainy day here in Ohio. Perfect weather to stay inside and game!!! Our Corp (guild) in EVE Online is doing a long mission with 5 or 6 gates. The bounty rewards are quite good, and the challenge is rewarding.
Earlier this morning, I was able to do my stretches and workout. I wanted to ride my bike, but the rain discouraged that idea. I hope you all have a great weekend!

My Experience with DDO
Well EVE Online is down tonight for hardware upgrades so we decided to try out the free 7 day DDO Trial. So I go to make my character...I made a Elf Cleric, and then get her all set up, and in the game and then I can't move! I was doing everything I was supposed to be, my character was just stuck. I could relog, come back on, move about 20 steps, and I was stuck again. I asked around, and several people told me "oh, that happens", and that I should re-install my game to fix it. Well that stinks! And they want me to try out this game to hopefully buy it? Haha...I'm not sure I'm even gonna play it again at all, unless my hubby really likes it.

I'm home from work. It was a pretty quick day, and not too hard. But, I am feeling lazy tonight. I'm not going to cook, we're ordering out some Chinese food.
We're playing Eve Online tonight again. I think we're hooked on it. Its complicated enough to keep us very interested and still learning things. I still am putting a little bit of time on my Guild Wars characters too. I mostly play GW when my hubby is at work or asleep. =)

Tonight's Game : More Eve Online
On EVE Online tonight, hubby wants me to go mining with him. That's where we mount ore-miner lasers on the spaceships and gather materials for crafting. Not the most fun thing to do in the game, but it is fairly profitable. I think he wants to go for some more valuable ore, which is in the farther out, less guarded systems. I hope we don't get blown up by player pirates. =)
