As per Aable's request.

I am going to start with the best way to help Aable as he is going through his physical troubles, as per his request.

After Dealing with ulcerative colitis since around 2003, finally things have gotten bad enough I have been in the hospital since St. Patrics day. I decided I will be going in for surgerie. March 29 sometime in the afternoon. I will be having Laparoscopic abdominal colectomy and ileostomy for any of you medicaly intersted people. Basically my large intestine will be totally removed. and i will have a poo pouch for a while. Then basically a section of my small instestine is formed into a new mini Colin while this is all going on called a j pouch. and my digestive tract is reconnected though that. my estimated recovery time in the hospital is somewhere around a couple weeks followed by other outpatient recovery.

In all I should end up with a better quality of life then i have been dealing with for the past few years so wish me luck. If you see someone around as me the next few weeks its (Exodus(Wargod))rob)

--On another note, since this sucks so bad anyone who wants to do something cool for me, please corrdinate with Ringthree; I am trying to see If i can get the foodnetwork to give me a free Trip to see Emeril Live maybe even convince him to do a special show basied on my condition or UC in general.----

Kelly Beattie

Ok, so here is what you can do. Send a e-mail to Emeril Live via the Food Network. If you don't know what exactly to say, or if you don't know Aable but just want to help him out, then please just use the following message. Cut and paste, easy as the proverbial pie.
Hello, my name is (put your name here) and I writting on behalf of a close friend Kelly Beattie. Kelly is currently suffering from Ulcerative colitis (Ulcerative colitis is a form of colitis, a disease of the intestine, specifically the large intestine or colon, that includes characteristic ulcers, or open sores, in the colon) which has currently confined him to a hospital and has severely limited his ability to eat as he wishes. I was hoping that you could help him in his time of need. Kelly has a great love of life, and his greatest love in life is food. Even though suffering from UC, he manages to entertain himself and friends with cooking and the stories of how much he loves to cook. His current hospitalization has prevented him from being able to engage in cooking for obvious reasons. So I am writing on behalf of Kelly to ask if you could do something for him, in the form of having Kelly on Emeril Live! and focusing an episode on how to person suffering from UC can learn to cook for themselves in a healthy and enjoyable way. UC takes so much of what Kelly loves, and I was hoping that you could take the time to help Kelly, and embrace Kelly's wish that people with UC learn that they can enjoy eating and learn to cook in a healthy manner for themselves!

Thank you so much for listening, Kelly will appreciate it!

Just spam them! Send as many or as few e-mails as you like! Aable will appreciate it and hopefully he will be back soon with a new and improved colon! LOL

I will be posting this everywhere, and I hope that people take the time to help :)

Now, onto the game :) That is what they call the clumsy transition right there! LOL

Dynamis can be great when there are good drops and people end up getting things they have been waiting for and deserve. And Dynamis can be BST x2, BRD, and WHM x2 and make you want to claw your eyeballs out for 4 straight hours. Can you guess what happened yesterday? Yeah... when you see this in the loot pool its probably time to just through in the towel and go xp or something: This makes for a rather annoying, be very long run. I just don't get the drop system here, at least spread them out a bit. Obsidian gets so many freaking BST and BRD drops it is just ridiculous. I am not saying that those people that get them are any less deserving or those pieces are inherently worse than any other pieces, but I would just like to see a RDM hat drop, just once. Gawayne freaking deserves it, even with his Excalibur. Ahh well, 5 drops in general is neither bad nor good I suppose, what I didn't understand was the fact that there were only 51 people to an unopposed Xarcabard run, the update was small so I doubt that was to blame. Well, since we had cleared most of the zone already and were already at the Great Ax NM, we decided to give it a go for someone that needed the fragment. No real prep, just "Hay guyz, LOL Animated Great Axe Gogogo!" I had already two-houred, but it wouldn't have made a difference really, because apparently a 774 Tach: Gekko is pretty decent damage on the Animated Great Axe, and it took umbridge. That umbridge was in the form of a Metatron Torment. ;_; I guess my Gekko must have been a crit or something, because I was subbing WAR at the time, and I don't think it was a double attack proc. Oh well, it was a win anyway, and seeing as it wasn't a full run and we were able to kill it pretty handily, I can see us doing this more often because several people are already moving onto the 3rd and 4th stages now. Coins are getting to become pretty easy to come by, for example Omoi is already on stage 2 Polearm and has some coins for Stage 3. Pretty ambitious, I say, but the way Omoi does things she will get it eventually, and she will love it dearly. LOL

After the long slog that was Dynamis-Xarcabard, I got some people together and I finally got to XP on my NIN, which I hadn't been able to do in a long while, because of my RNG. It was a pretty simple party, no extremely long chains or anything just some decent XP while most everyone was in Besieged, meaning we had our choice of mobs in Bhaflau Thickets. Everyone got a merit or two, and I got to recap XP on NIN after losing a bit to Byakko, and get another merit after that. I ended up putting it into Katana, even though I said I was going to do Archery first. I don't know, its not like STR where I have to make a major commitment just to save up for one upgrade. One merit here, two merits there, and so it goes, until I have 8 Katana and 4 Archery, which will be the inevitable result. Plus I see getting a bunch of these merits on NIN, in general so, the faster I do Katana merits, the faster I will get getting merits, etc. Self-reinforcing cycle.

Now for your picture of the day, its Pbdomenator, the belly-dancer.

throw in the towel, not through in the towel

I hate my job.
