mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas bow)

I have been playing GuildWars, so I guess I'm writing about GuildWars too, at least a little bit. It's what's on my mind at the moment. [info]columbina was gone most of the weekend, and was feeling sickly a good bit of last week, so it seemed like we were playing together for the first time in a while. My paragon, Inaya, had moved ahead while Col was away, sort of by accident - I was only intending to explore, really, but there is a series of titles (called Lightbringer) that you get by battling elementals, and there were a lot of elementals in the area where I was exploring, so I moved up from just plain Lightbringer to Adept Lightbringer while I was doing that. And then I wandered into an area that happened to contain the primary quest which moves you along in the story, so I "accidentally" got to the next mission while I was at it. However, it turned out today that that mission (the Grand Court of something-or-other) was the one that Imri (Col's paragon) had been stuck at for some time, and so the two paragons tried it together and got through it without too much trouble. We probably won't keep playing them together regularly, though, because paragons are support characters, really, and two of them in a party of eight is one too many.

What else happened today? Oh, for anybody who's reading this but hasn't been reading my in-between posts, I got a call today about the results of my biopsy, and it was good. "Everything was benign," was what I was told. The other notable thing today was that I traipsed down to the Cingular store at lunch and got a new phone, since my contract is expiring - or maybe has already expired, I forget. I thought about forking out the hundred bucks to get a Razr (they had pink ones, but not the red one which would have been more tempting - hey, it's for charity!) but I really didn't care that much about it beyond the cool factor. I liked my Nokia that I already had, so I finally just got another, newer Nokia. All the accessories I already have will fit, and it was free with a new contract. Since I didn't blow the money on the Razr, I splurged a bit and upgraded my contract to include text messaging/IM/internet, which I was paying extra for when I used before. (And they said text messages were going up to 15 cents each, too, so at least I don't have to worry about that.) Now I just have to figure out how to work the new one. It's a lot like the old one, but not quite. I might actually have to get out the manual to figure out the differences. (Horrors!)

Also I made another cough-drop run through Wal-Mart after work, and was interested to see that they had generic Mucinex. Only other allergy sufferers will understand the significance of that, I think. (
[info]ms_hooligan , for one, is very fond of her Mucinex, I seem to recall.) Actually, I was worried that I couldn't get through the evening without cough drops, but I've only had a couple all night. The cough does seem to have subsided a bit. I could have saved a good bit of money by not going, because Wal-Mart is a more dangerous place when I go there without Rob. I stop and look at things I don't usually look at, like Christmas socks and computer accessories. I managed to spend $50, one way and another.

(Is the red text blinding? I kind of like it.)

The red is a bit blinding--my eyes shake the text a bit, but that might be b/c I have a cataract coming on. And congratulations on your benignity, which I was very happy to read about!!!
