Finding Long Lost Love

Anybody that knows anything about my gaming history knows that Everquest was my first love. I played for a good 3 1/2 years, and while I was a very casual gamer (seriously. we exist!), I really enjoyed the game.

When my guild jumped ship and went to play World of Warcraft, I basically hung up my MMORPG hat. I played WoW and EQII for a couple months but didn’t like either one.

Well, the boy and I had been entertaining the notion of reactivating our accounts on some game lately, to casually run around and kill stuff every now and then. We were reminiscing with other people that had played and the such.

Yesterday I randomly remembered my EQ log-in name. After some digging, I figured out where my password recovery email wound up, activated my account and logged in this morning. My characters are still there!

… my level 65 monk is in Qvic, by herself. I don’t even know if it’s safe there. Then it came back to me. We had finished a raid, and I camped right there because I planned on never logging in again. Well… 5 years is almost like forever, right? I’m currently brainstorming on how to get her out of there alive, because I don’t remember anything about the zone.

Anyway, I logged into a low level character in a safe place and looked around, and honest to God, it’s like I never left. Everything looks exactly the same. I even remembered how to move. I’m amused.

So we’ll see how this plan works. We only expect to play maybe twice a week… it could be fun Remind me later to tell the story about how I first got into playing EQ; it’s pretty funny.


Weekend Summary!

La la la. T’was a good weekend. Friday night spent too much money and made a tutu but I believe I already mentioned that.

Saturday I went and got my hair cut and then came home and Jeff helped me dye it. Then I took too long doing my makeup and didn’t have time to do my nails before Jason came to pick me up.

Then we went to Citywalk.. there was me, my mom, her boyfriend, our friend from Australia (Marianne), a friend from Colorado (Steph), a guy from Woodland Hills (Skitz/Scott), and Jason. We’re a group of old Everquest players hehe. We get together once a year. Anyway we went to Citywalk like I said and had dinner at Saddleback Ranch. Our drinks were HUGE, holy crap. My mai tai was yummy. So we ordered way more food than any of us could possibly eat and passed drinks around and had a really good time.

We laughed at Skitz for being an idiot (dur dur duur!) and deciding Citywalk was a good place to go the weekend before halloween, because you know, Universal Studios had a HUGE thing going on and there was no parking. Anyway after dinner we rode the mechanical bull! I fell off. Then the guy made me do it again. Today my thighs hurt. I’m a wuss. After that me and Skitz made total dummies of ourselves playing DDR because we were too drunk to see the arrows. It was fun. And we got carded by the curfew police. “Are you 18?” “I AM 21 YEARS OLD THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!1” Sheesh.

Today I had to go to a memorial. It was a very lovely service. It was for my aunt boyfriend who just passed away. I hardly knew him, but he had to have been a good guy if my aunt loved him. I know he was very generous and caring. They threw my 19th birthday party and he did way more than I would have ever expected anybody I had never met before that day to do. Rest in Peace Rick ♥
