Hi geeks

I keep buying headphones that crap out on me. This time around, it was actually that my cat chewed through the wire, so I'm fed up. Could you please recommend a good wireless headphone for music and gaming, please? And hopefully somewhere under $50, that has a way to recharge without buying batteries every week. Thanks.

Love Mount & Blade?

If any of you like Mount & Blade, you might be interested in a first-person, in-character, no meta-info diary I'm keeping about my latest Warband character's exploits.

The original Mount & Blade, along with all its expansions, eventually dwindle down into sandbox mode, and there was seemingly little difference between male and female characters. But it seems that Warband is different. It has some interesting dynamics, even in native. It's set in the thirteenth century, so if you chose to be female you get a bunch more gyp from male nobles, and it's more difficult to become a vassal. It's harder to find a guy willing to marry you, regardless (it seems) of your motives for marriage. I'm not complaining at all, of course. It's more realistic, and it's a nuance that's making the game more interesting.

Anyway, the journal is on Dreamwidth. If you have an account there, it's called [personal profile] laure. You can also follow it here on LJ through the syndicated feed warband_diary.

I've written well ahead, so there should be consistently updated content, and the story is interesting, I think, if you're into such things. My husband and I are working on the project together (isn't geeklove awesome?), one of us plays while the other writes the journal, but the character is female and we've committed ourselves to the ambitious goal of winning the game. Wish us luck!

so... speaking of freebies lists...

I've never had a freebies list. I've never wanted one. I generally have never wanted to have sex with a celebrity or a fictional character. I would have to say that the only one that comes even close would be Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds. I used to have a serious, serious crush on Tezuka from Prince of Tennis. Why yes, it is an animated character. I just like those stoic and quiet types.

So.. who's on yours?
