    So I spent over $800 on my new Lenovo but I ended up sending it back today because I didn't really like it. I've decided on a more expensive Macbook Pro.


    Which means waiting a while longer before I am back and active again.

    So I was going to take a break then :Dwarf Wars: happened.

    Since then there's been OOC bitterness generated venom bleeding into people's IC, accusations of exploiting and cheating just because things people deem "impossible" turn out to be, not so impossible, and people who tell me that my IC actions are dictated by OOC friendships and opinions of people. Thank you for dictating my mindset to me, I'd never be able to think without your unwanted opinions.

    Oh and the kicker is being told I don't actually give a damn about the game, when I spend my time OOCly offering advice and help to people on either side of an IC conflict.

    So I think I'll take that pre-ascension planned break now.


    Not looking for sympathy here, I don't actually want it, I'm just explaining why I can't be arsed logging in for a while. The reason I'm being frank about it is because I'm getting pretty tired of politely smiling and biting my tongue on this, when others clearly can't be bothered.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Hiiiiii. So, some people may have noticed I've been sketchy since Ascension. I've gone back to work after a break during February, and it's clearly being a pain.

    Good news! I quit. So in a couple of weeks' time, I'll be around a LOT more frequently. 

    In the meantime, if I haven't done something I should have, please send me a message to remind me. I'll be around on weekends and the silly Australian evenings when no one's around. ;_;

    OOC Venom bleeding into IC, from IC actions? Say it ain't so. We should just have a big post talking about what happened. :/

    Not really a proper absence, but I will be MIA for a few more days, friend of mine is getting married so this week has been full of prep and dealing with flowers and all of that nonsense. It'll be all over on Sunday!

    I noticed, that I am more productive earlier in the day (and given that I have two deadlines, which will decide if I am able to stay in my MA program - note to self: do not try to do the last term of a BA and the first MA simultaneously - I really should be productive), so I decided to change my sleeping schedule. That (probably) does not mean that I am around less, but due to the timezone I am in, I probably won't be visible that much.

    I fell on my hike this morning and dislocated my kneecap, so I am pretty much down for the count for a few days. I know a couple of people are waiting on things from me - will try to get those emailed/messaged from my laptop whilst laid up. :/

    Not going to be around much, probably not coming back for a while, if at all.  State of game and roleplay is leaving a stale taste in my mouth.  I would like to have some kind of drive to play Lusternia, but there is no reason for me to login outside of Valtreth, and I do not see him around much.

    Nothing progressive is happening, same old hackneyed conflict; riding the treadmill of essence I am locked into by influencing guards all day, being scryed and summoned by tag-teams.  Boring nonsense.  Call that a sour grapes gripe, but it is what it is.

    Peace out.

    I'll be sparse for a few days, my parents are coming to stay and I absolutely adore them, so I'll be doing the social thing and talking to them without a computer in front of me. Won't be far though! Still checking in!

    I'm having a really hard time getting myself to stay logged in for any length of time right now.

    I'll be keeping up with messages and such, but for an indefinite period of time, I will be much scarcer than I have been since making Parua.

    Here's hoping I can shake this off soonishly and get back to playing.

    I know this is more of a departure than an absense, but meh.

    I'm going to be trying to break my MUD habit again, probably by going cold turkey.

    It's kinda hard, I have great fun playing, and have interacted with some wonderful people, but in the long run I'm fairly sure it's not been helping me with my introversion, which causes me a certain degree of RL trouble, and I know ultimately where my priorities are. It's been a ball, and eh, I'll probably catch some of you around. Or I might fail to quit and come back, who knows.

    I haven't been around much lately, this is due to that nag of a neighbor we've all got 'real life'. Over the years I've perfected the ability to ignore 'real life', but as we all know, nothing lasts forever.

    Therefore I'll be taking a break to take a second look at the things I never looked at in the first place. Once I've sorted things out, perhaps I'll be back. Until then I'll be logging on for messages, making sure my beasts don't die and the odd conversation with people I enjoy.

    It's been fun!

    Apparently I'm leaving this afternoon for this weekend long work thing as a last minute replacement for one of my coworkers. No idea how around I'll be. I was also traveling last weekend, and will be next weekend as well. I was really looking forward to having a weekend off and catching up on things like laundry, friends, reading and lusternia.

    I'm going to continue to be scarce until a week from Monday. We're hosting a major conference at work this week, and then I have a (very much needed!) vacation planned.

    I know, I know, I just got GA. However I am moving this Friday and although the internet people have confirmed an appointment for the following day to have everything connected at the new place, I just want to give you a heads up just in case it doesn't go to plan.

    Edit: So at best I'm gone for Friday/Saturday/possibly Sunday with packing, moving, unpacking, at worst it could go on into the week while I'm scheduling a new appointment with the internet company and getting furious at my landlord.

    Though Holy Week is nearly at an end, fiancee is in town visiting, so I will be pretty scarce this week.
    Everiine is a man, and is very manly. This MAN before you is so manly you might as well just gender bend right now, cause he's the manliest man that you ever did see. His manly shape has spurned many women and girlyer men to boughs of fainting. He stands before you in a manly manerific typical man-like outfit which is covered in his manly motto: "I am a man!"

    This weekend I'll be gone this Thursday-Monday (April 24-28).

    Then the following weekend I'll be gone Friday-Wednesday (May 2-7).

    May or may not be checking messages during either absence, couldn't say for sure.
