Overcast, rainy, and currently 55˚F, same as when I went to bed last night at about 4 a.m. In late December. This is the weird weather that happens when you combine global warming with a coastal New England climate.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,020 words on something new that's currently wearing the title "Untitled Psychiatrist #1." It will appear alongside "The Sick Rose, Redux" in Sirenia Digest #131.

Despite being one of the most LGBT-friendly games out there, maybe the most, with gay, lesbian, and trans NPCs, Guild Wars 2 restricts avatar creation to a strictly binary gender model. And it's hard as hell to make a feminine human male, but last night I finally managed it. Meet Nellis Rose Snow, a young drag queen from Divinity's Reach (he's also a mesmer, but that's a secret):

I played about eight hours of GW2 last night and leveled Nellis to Level 18, questing in Queensdale, Wayfairer Foothills, and Snowden Drifts. Nellis is my fourteenth character in the game. All the others have level capped at 80. I suspect Nellis is going to be my favorite for a while.

And now, work.

I've tried about that many characters. Only three to lvl 80 though. Got bored with doing the same old quests, and the endgame is something of a grind. Uninstalled.

When people left Everquest we used to say "Congratulations, you win Everquest". I doubt I've won Vs MMORPGs in general though. Replayed three last year, and if there was a good new one, I'd almost certainly buy it.

Games are probably an addiction for me, or at least an unhealthy coping mechanism, but they have got me through some shit that probably would have been much worse without them.

He's beautiful.

Further, or farther?
Nellis needs pink eyes, otherwise you nailed your objective.
