D3: *Sigh*. This day was hard. I tried advancing in inferno with my barb, and advancing in hell with my wizard. It proved to be very frustrating and not fun at all. I was quite upset with Blizzard, and their idiotic game design decisions. But them I read up abit about Barbarian skills, and found a combination which worked for me. I also bought a 400 life per hit weapon with 500 dps, and jewelery with life per hit and attack speed. And I managed to push past the cathedral level 2, and kill the Skeleton King. I'm abit less mad now.
The skills I use now are Overpower(reflect damage), Sprint(tornadoes!1!!), Charge(healing), Warcry(what else?). On left click: revenge(crit chance), right click: frenzy(sidearm).
Passives are nerves of steel and tough skin(the extra armor ones), and lifeleech.
Sprint with Tornadoes is the best skilll ever.
OVG: Minecraft. Made some more progress on my mining tower, recorded video. If you'll permit me to self-promote: video.
RL: have started to plan the 20th high school reunion. We are a group of 6 girls (well, ladies now I suppose...) who have kept in contact and organized the 10 year reunion and that was a huge success. Needless to say it is a lot easier to find people 2012 than it was 2002. With facebook and all..
D2: killed skeleton king in normal with my barb (the Warrior :-) )

D3: Maybe, but it's really not grabbing me. And the little time I do have to game these days is spent on OVG.
OVG: Either NWN with my excitingly default standard cookie-cutter Fighter, or ARMA II's Day Z mod, which is tense, isolating and paranoia-inducing all at once.

I reeeeealllly want to get that, but I can't justify the cost right now. Someday.....
RL: Need to get back on the job search. I've been cooking a lot the past few days, and I discovered something: you can get chicken breast with ribs attached for 1 USD per pound. In the last week, I've made chicken and dumplings, chicken/bacon/spinach quiche, chicken quesadillas, quesadillas/tacos again, and today lentil soup using the broth from previous batches of chicken. I usually use bacon or sausage when making lentil soup, but not this time. The broth was made in two stages: first chicken (duh), carrots, and celery and then onion, garlic (a whole bulb), salt, and fresh cracked black pepper. The broth itself was like a finished soup (flavor-wise, all the veggies were strained out), so these lentils should be really good.
D3: Um, not much. I say that because I miss runes. I leveled my witch doctor a bit, and I'll either level my monk more or progress in inferno with my wizard later. I accidentally quick-joined a friend's game earlier and lost my wizard's Halls of Agony 2 checkpoint.
RL: Almost died today. As in RL death. I was in the sidewalk wating to cross on pedestrian crossing. In front of me, a avenue with 2 transit lines. A driver in one of them, all of sudden hits the breaks, then another driver just passes with his car on the sidewalk, whitout braking or anything. I just had to do jump back 4-5 ft from standing still to avoid death (yes, the numbers are accurate). It worked well, since I'm alive. Now I know how DH does that thing with cunning shot...
I spent some time with friends and I don't think about drinking something tonight. The quit drinking thing seems to be on, since not even escaping death seems to be a reason to celebrate with beer. People around told me that I'm born again. Even on RL, I seem to be on SC.
