To the Grind  
Back at work today, and not in training as I thought I would be. Since it's two days of training, and today's stuff builds on the stuff I missed yesterday, there's not a lot of point in me sitting in a classroom 'til 4:00 PM, scratching my head while everyone else plugs along. So, I got the student manual for the class, and the instructor's going to email me his PowerPoint presentations and the lab exercises (essentially, Java programs with holes in them that I get to fill in) and the answers. Since I like self-teaching better than sitting in class anyway, it should be no problem!

I'm also feeling much better after my day of rest. =) Just kinda drowsy/out of it right now, but that's expected with the piddly amount of sleep I got last night (I just didn't get tired enough to sleep 'til, like, 1 or 2 AM).

Yesterday was spent on the odd chore, hunting down specialists that accept our medical coverage, meeting my wonderful husband at his bus stop with a cold drink, making bruschetta and ebishumai (okay, I microwaved the latter), and completing Carth's side quest in KOTOR so that he'll sex my ridiculously light-sided Jedi.

...I'm acting naturally, and I haven't earned a single Dark Side point yet. I'm such a puss that I can't even be mean to people in a video game.

It's cool that your character glows out of the ass.

Well, not out of the ass per se, more out of the floor beneath her feet. But I wouldn't be surprised if she shat rainbows and sunshine.

That's one of the problems I've had with KOTOR/KOTOR II/Jade Empire, there are no options for being subtly evil, so the "natural" way, for me, is good by default. It's either "No no, no reward is necessary, little missy! Now I'll put on my white hat and ride off into the sunset, broke as hell", "Yes I will take this money, thank you. I am a moderately good person and pretty boring", or "I'm taking the money and killing your family as well! Oh ha ha ha what an evil dude I am, watch as I twirl my evil moustache and drown puppies." I suppose the game makers didn't want to encourage people to be sneaky in the real world, or somesuch. That'd be the most fun way to play for me, though.

Also Carth is a whiny douche ;)

Agreed, there are very few sneaky [Persuade/Lie] options. You're either ridiculously good or bad, very little middle ground.

lol- also agreed about Carth, but I'll add that you're allowed to be a whiny douche to some degree when you lose your entire family in a planetary bombardment. Emo aside, he and Jolee are usually whom I take in my party (switching in Canderous or HK-47 occasionally is fun too though). Bastila is a bitch, I say whatever I have to to make her shut up. ;)

Honestly, now that I think about it, Juhani is arguably whinier than Carth. But I'd rather have her in my party than Bastila.
