(no subject)

I log onto Eve Online.

There's a piece of mail waiting for me.

"100 units of Omber sold to D'Xye for 500 isk (5 per item) by Serla and waits at D'Xye's hanger at Kusomonmon II - Moon 7 - Caldari Provisions Plantation for pickup."

Those who were watching may remember this. I offered some minerals for sale because I didn't want them. I picked a value above the current for-sale price (which was ludicrously low) but about half their actual worth. I couldn't exploit their worth, it would take more time than it was, well, worth.

Apparently D'Xye can put them to some use, because he bought them, and I now have more money than if I'd just scrapped them.

Note that this all happened behind the scenes. I don't know how he found the Omber, only that he apparently wanted it. I don't even know *why* he wanted it.

But, hey. I've got money, I'm happy. He's got omber, presumably he's happy.

This game is amazing.

"Hey baby, ever visited the isle of Lesbos?"

"Ever done any role-playing? I'll be Oedipus, you can be my mom."

"You must be descended from Medusa, because you've sure made my" (I'm not going to finish this one)

Actually, I'm going to stop entirely.
