    Great! Thanks!

    Maybe I'll become a believer in the glory that is tea.

    But I doubt it.

    We'll see.

    Forget an IOK WoW guild, what if we had an actual IOK adventure together in TESO? Though I don't know how many people here even can play on PC besides you two, and I can't myself. But it's a fun thought.

    I doubt ESO would run very well on my laptop. I can run Skyrim fine, and skate by on Planetside 2 on lowest graphic settings, and with 15 fps, but I dunno how it would take ESO.

    Yeah, I have absolutely no doubt I wouldn't be able to run it, but it's a fun thought. I mean, imagine the whole gang getting together and actually adventuring through Tamriel? And not just leaving the inn together and then just stopping? :p

    My friend used to play WoW. He's the kind of guy, that when he starts a game, he goes all out. Really, really hardcore gaming type. Long story short: my buddy Kevin devoted 17 hours a day one summer to WoW. He ended up gaining something of a reputation. Unfortunately he was in high school at the time and quit the game come the start of his senior year.

    I'm not too interested in beginning an online obsession right now. Maybe next summer when I have more time, but I'm starting a ton of classes. When I'm not in classes, I am working, and when I am not doing either of those, I am remodeling parts of my home.

    I did the beta testing for TESO. It was fun. Just wasn't the same feeling that I got with Skyrim. I may try it out when I am not working/in school. My computer handled it pretty well. Hanging out in game actually sounds quite fun.

    I'm starting a class that involves tagging animals and identifying plants. It's 4 days a week, starts at 8am, and is going to be insane.

    Do you have to catch the animals by hand? Is that why it's going to be insane?

    Having an IOK guild in TESO would be quite fun actually. At least, I imagine I would enjoy it. And even if I dislike playing with other people, playing with friends would be a novel experience for me.

    After all don't they have a free trial month? We could always use that to test the idea if nothing else.

    Also if anyone is interested, I just finished reading a book about a necromancer who strikes me as a less hapless and more ordered evil version of Pilus. Maybe it was the writing style or sense of humour that reminded me of him. On one scene he's accosted by two bumbling highway men and his nonsensical but painfully logical conversation with them transformed him in my mind from a tall, pale blond man in black Victorian garb, to a weasly, pale blond man in a stained orange robe, trying to subtly hide the oddly shaped tools in his hands.

    Maybe it's the animals that makes insane.

    GUYS.

    MAYBE THEY'RE DINOSAURS.

    Speaking of animals, I had to kill a chipmunk yesterday.

    He was stuck in a trap but not dead, so I had to put him out of his misery.

    Did... did Grumpy forget to give you your meds today?

    There, there. It's alright.

    Anyways, dinosaurs stuffed the bear to make, right? So there's nothing to worry about.

    Also, Smooth, I am thrilled to say I have never had to do that once in my life ever.

    He drowned quickly and I gave him a eulogy. It went better than the other option I briefly considered, which was execution by the headsman's axe.

    We want the guillotine! Bring the guillotine! Off with his head!

    But really, that's tragic. I'm glad he at least got a eulogy.

    Is it happening, or has it happened, or is it going to happen?

    I've been playing all morning. Blood elf rogue. It's actually pretty fun. Except when people steal your kills. Then it's annoying but hey. That's MMO's for you.

    That's how it goes. So, did you and Grumpy get the recruit a friend bonus?
