At the urging of like half the people from [profile] alwaysunami, we started playing City of Heroes yesterday. I think Beth likes it better than she ever liked World of Warcraft, hahaha. In fact, she likes the game so much she ended up getting the very basic version, with no expansion packs, so we could have fun playing without that stupid "you're using a trial version durrrr" thing in the middle of the screen.

We made a character together. XD Her name's Violet Em. (We had a Violet Emerald, too, but since the game we bought is a downgrade from the demo we played, we can't play Violet Emerald.) She looks pretty damn badass. And sexy. I'd do her. XD Can't wait to see Kyte's character. We tried playing with him earlier but we had to go through a huge stupid tutorial, and by the time we got to the end our head was hurting because frigging ALL of us were trying to front. Ellie wanted to talk to Kael, and I do feel a little bad that they couldn't talk, but hey, video game. Playing as Violet EM, not Violet Ellie. XD But yeah. Headache. Nasty one. So we had to leave, and go do something else for a bit. (That something else was watching two hours of True Blood, eff yeah, I think that's my favorite show) When we came back, nobody from Unami was on, so we ended up playing alone.

Hope we all get to play together today. :D I hope. Beth kinda feels bad about not playing WoW, since the husband bought her Cataclysm for Christmas, but maybe she'll pick that up again when CoH goes free to play.

We gotta get ready for work soon. Ended up sleeping in a little today, so we're a little behind. But the sleep? Worth it. XD

Oh lord. I missed the internet. I missed being connected to everyone. *hugs the internets*

Although tonight just seems to have turned into a big-ass drama mess. And I feel like it's my own fault, bringing it on myself.

Lemme explain it. I was considering coming up with some sort of pen-name for when Beth and I do NaNoWriMo later this year, since I can't be Em Buck with there being an Em Buck in the story. That, and there's the whole thing with the last name being from one of Beth's exes who's getting married later this summer - awkwaaaard. So, Beth, smart woman that she is, suggested I ask Kyte if I could borrow his last name and go by E. V. Davis. Sounds pretty awesome, right? So awesome, in fact, that I considered switching my last name to Davis. It fits with this new phase we've entered in our life, in my life. I'm switching from being Em the Protector to being Em for Em's Sake. (Not to say I won't step in to take care of Beth when she can't handle things.) But yeah. Em Davis. And Kyte, he was fine with it. More than fine. He was even okay with me permanently becoming Em Davis. But we both figured I should talk to Guin before I changed my name, to make sure she was alright with it.

And that's where everything went downhill.

And now I feel like an idiot for even wanting to do this in the first place.

*sighs* Not going to get too far into it. I'm just gonna sit and think it over some more. But to me, it feels right. I just... don't know what to do. I feel like if I make a wrong move, everything's gonna shatter around me.

So. Uh. Things with Kyte? Getting better. Very better.

Things with Guin? Amazing.

Things with the husband? Not so much. But oh well. He can suck it, for all I care. Today was a good day, a day where I could be me and not get any flack for it, and it was much needed.

Just wanted to let everyone know I'm doing much better now. Things have been straightened out with Kyte, and while we're not in a relationship anymore, we're still friends.

Found some very unexpected happiness recently with Guin. Unexpected and very enjoyable. The past few days have been very good ones. Which is good, considering I'm trapped at the in-laws for another day and a half. O_o Some vacation this is turning out to be - we've been running around a lot the past few days. Bleh.

Gonna watch some more House while the husband cooks dinner, and work on the new scarf project I started. *grin*
