I've started playing Ragnarok Online again. Official servers this time, even, instead of the private ones. The private ones were nice, but it bothered me that I couldn't find that one that didn't have the drops and experience boosted by an insane amount. I don't want 75 times the drop percentages and 100 times the experience earned. I certainly don't want 3000 times all that, as some servers have. I don't want to be at level 50 within my first hour of play. That kind of power-leveling can be fun, but it's often not what I'm in the mood for. So I'm playing on Valkyrie server, not wanting to shell out actual money to play at the moment. Premium servers be hanged. So if you see a character named Jazriyah, or eventually Razreesh, that'd be me. Feel free to say hi.

My shifts at work this week are 4 to midnight, which gives me ample time to do my work quietly and alone. And, when it's slow enough that there's no work to actually be done, it gives me time to read. I'll probably end up finishing Cory Doctorow's For the Win tonight, if all goes well. I'm really enjoying it, so I'll be sad to see it end, but I definitely think it's one that I'll be buying my own copy of at some point, so there's no harm in reading it again.

I do wish I had more time at home to read K J Parker's The Hammer, though. It's shaping up to be quite a good novel!

I've been in a knitting mood again lately, too. Kind of a general stitching mood, really. I'm still working on my geisha cross-stitch pattern, albeit slowly, and I want to start work on the Swedish weaving afghan for Daniel, but I think I'll work on that in the summer, in the back room where Daniel can't see what I'm doing and so it'll be a surprise.

I also should be writing. But I should be doing that most days, and I don't. The problem is that there are too many things I want to work on at the same time, and if I do them all, I get nowhere in all of them instead of just making myself sit down and get somewhere in one of them.

Legs are still weak and shaky, and I'm trying to hide that from people a lot. Some days are better than others. Dropping my pen because my hands don't cooperate is also annoying, but at least that can happen to anyone and isn't quite so embarassing as walking unsteadily. My head's also been twitching more, but I already know that my Tourette's acts up when my stress level is high, so I'm not overly concerned with that, even though it's as embarassing as walking like I'm drunk...

Enough babble. Have to go to work and earn another $75 for the day.
