Rehearsals are going pretty well, albeit a bit tiring. We're about to get into "oh crap the shows is really really soon and we all suck" mode (it's an annual occurrence), but once we buckle down I think all will be well.

After rehearsal last night, I arrived home to find a few "dude, did you steal all the stuff in the guild bank?" IMs. Not a good sign. Tried to log in to WoW and couldn't, so I reset the password online and discovered that I had, indeed, done so. The weird thing is that the thief took basically all 5000 of my gold, but didn't sell any of my soulbound gear, and cleared out most of my bank but not all of it. And didn't find the 8 Primal Mights and 450 gold on my auction house mule.

Anyway, I filed a petition to get my crap back, which I think they usually do, and presumably they'll restore the guild bank as well. Yet another way WoW is better than the real world :-)

This week I've been superproductive at work...let's see if that continues today.

This article about purity balls is kinda creepy.


Comment from omega697:

You should get one of those keychain login thingees.

Comment from gregstoll:

Apparently so - I thought running on a Mac would be enough. Although it was running 10.5.0 at the time to try to debug a problem. It's also possible they guessed my username/password combo...wasn't very creative.

Comment from copperwolf:

That is a disturbing article Time published. I'm surprised they don't take a more critical look at the attitudes and premises behind the phenomenon; I expect better of Time.

Comment from djedi:

Ok, that whole purity thing is indeed creepy and very demeaning to women.

Comment from wonderjess:

Man, I'm glad our parents aren't uber-creepy.

Comment from liz_gregory:

um... eep!

The exerpts of the article sounnd perfectly reasonabl until you get the rebuttal, which brings out the intense creepiness. If they left the dads out of it, I could see how this might be a cool thing (says the teacher who has had too many pregnant students), but they're making way too much of a deal out of sex, which tends to encourage rather than discourage experimentation.
