Wow, this would have been a fabulous night of playing City of Heroes...

Except for the fact that it seems something is up with our ISP and it is taking HOURS AND HOURS for the CoH updates to download before I can play. Literally when I started downloading it said it would take 8 hours. It hasn't taken that long, but it's 11:45 and I started this after I got off the phone from my mother, which I think was around 4 hours ago, and according to the download meter it's going to take another (estimated) two hours and 45 minutes.

So much for my first night gaming with urban_bohemian. :(

Oh, well - in lieu of that I had a long conversation with Quincy, then Mom, I'm doing laundry, I did some dishes, and now I'm going to put together my new computer desk. Maybe by the time I go to bed it'll be done so I can play tomorrow.

I'm not holding my breath.

Edited to add: At least PlayNC got my account straightened out and gave me the credit for the pre-order account, which means I get a streak effect while I run. Not a huge deal, but I figured I paid the $10 way back when, I might as well get the benefit. Now my account is brand new, no characters, so I'll be recreating a few of my favorites soon on my own account. Yay!

I'll be feeling your pain next week. I finally broke down and order my own copy of CoH. It won't be here for a week (I found the special DVD version on Amazon yesterday for only $20, so I figured I could wait one more week to save $15). But soon I'll be downloading and downloading... and then heading off to help save Paragon City!

The extra week may also give me time to finish becoming a Sith Lord in Knights of the Old Republic. :)

You know, you really need to just give in and game with us. :P

Probably. But believe it or not, men in tights just don't do it for me..... ;)

Oddly, little dwarves and ogres don't do it for me, either. :P

By this point I've figured that out. :)

Still, there are seven dwarfs in particular that do it for you, so I still like you. :)

...which reminds me, I'll be in the park this weekend, if you're interested and can tear yourself away from fighting for justice.

"Heigh-Hoooooooooo!" :P

I think I have something going on this weekend, but I can't remember what. Besides, at some point I need to renew my AP, but I'm not sure I can afford it this month, what with the new computer and components and all (it's running SWEET, by the way). But soon, since going to the parks with you would be a most welcomed distraction from my worry and woes.
