Last night I had plans with Tobril to xp him up some in hopes that he would be ready to hit the tree here real soon. But as the best plans do, ours turned to crazy train when encountering the enemy. In this case Tobril’s day job.
I logged on about 30 mins before we were due to team up on As400 (wiz/2 epic) and Steampower (that alt account arty I have been talking about), with the plan to do a Seal for the Ring of Elemental Essence run on ehard.
25ish mins later, Brawnpits runs to the end and I lot my chests. Bracelet seal is close to what I am looking for, it is a seal after all, but not the prize I am hunting. I did pick up a scroll of the Mirror cloak so that was good and a full token across the two accounts.
About that time I get a txt from Tobril, work is dumb, Move eta back 40ish.
No problem, I fire up a second run. Mean while my wife is playing music via youtube on her PC. Not an issue until I catch the repeat train starting to roll out of the station and I have to nip that shit in the butt. We need to set some ground rules about playing the same song more then 5 times an hour. I ask her to through in some song rotation and see agrees but says she wouldn’t have to loop things if songs where 20 mins long again…. Btw she played the song that was stuck in my head a few weeks ago. Shouting that was the one song she counters of course a BJ song would be stuck in your head…… And she starts to read the lyrics to me and the youtube comments guess I wasn’t the only one that didn’t catch it right away. But when the only line that I remember is “to nights the night” over and over I just don’t see it.
Any I am about done with run number 2 when I both ask her to jump in and pike/be extra pulls and I inform her that it is my turn to pick a song and telling her to find one the Gangnam style videos. I am thinking I will fight fire with fire. She can’t find it so I move to a save spot and fiddle with my browser and get it started. When I turn back my safe spot wasn’t so safe after all and I loose my ship buffs. Things take a little longer as I lost a lot of SP due to deaths and recovery so I have to shrine an extra time but things move well enough.
Still no seal.
A few more runs and I get a txt from Tobril “Eta is off, work is dumb”. So I keep running 4-5 more runs for the night with 3 pullers. Another seal of the bracelet a few scrolls among the three accounts at least 1 per over the night and any time they wife wasn’t at her keys to loot her own chest I got extra fragments. Nothing in life is free. After all she got at least a ED rank or 2 for not a lot of work and I took her out for dinner. Sure she paid but that is not the point. ☺
Any way Tobril didn’t make it by 930 my time and 3ish hours of farming is all I got in a week so I read comics and went to bed where as I understand it one of the mother in-law’s dog puked on me in the night. Wonderful….. Did I tell you that the mother in-law went out of town and that the Gruobo dog kennel has opened? I now am sharing my bed with 9 dogs. No wait, 8 dogs my son keeps his pug at night. But that is a lot of bodies in my bed not making my every wet dream come true… So when I end with “Sooooooo Sleepy” you will understand.
Just how long ago were songs 20 minutes long? I’m assuming this is back before they invented the walkman and stuff? Wait, are you talking about phonograms? I thought the songs looped because the needle thing got stuck.
% In-a-Gadda-da-Vida, babyyyyyyyyy… %
“Mule” by Government Mule is another long one, think it’s around 18 minutes.
