How I spent my Thanksgiving Vacation

Basically, other than eating and sleeping, and a couple of errands, I spent it grinding 70,000 XP on World of Warships to finish the last two parts of the Takao mission. And it was astonishingly frustrating, because the only qualifying ships I had were the ARP Haguro and the Ryujo carrier. And damned if I can tell what actually equates to XP, because I had one amazing round where I sank three ships and did over 53K in damage, and got only 7-800 XP, and others where I did a lot less, but got a lot more (and it wasn't just the difference between winning or losing, but god did I lose a lot!)

Most frustrating thing with a carrier is getting that last torpedo run perfectly lined up, a guaranteed kill... and the game ends. That happened way too often. With the Cruiser, it was ammo selection. All the general rules of what to use didn't seem to apply. Plus I got stuck in some high tier matches. I actually had one match where I died fairly early. I had 0 Damage, but I didn't get the "You have not proven yourself in this battle" message. I had a hit on one ship with AP for zero damage, and a hit on another with HE, also for no damage. And don't get me started on Haguro's torpedoes....

Still, I won the Takao. I finished attaching all the upgrades, but I haven't allocated her 10 skill points yet.

Catsuit....

So apparently the way to draw traffic and interest is to post pictures, and I've been way remiss in that department.

Way back when I was reviewing Deadman Wonderland, I mentioned a scene where the security chief of the prison went and donned a catsuit to explore a part of the prison that was secret to her, even though her own uniform would have served her better. There was a delightful shot of her zipping it up. I remember asking other people what they were using to make animated .gifs, but no advice was forthcoming. I was never able to compile one.

I still can't, but someone else did make one of the aforementioned scene, so I present that in all its mesmerizing glory.

I know some would rather see it go down than up, but I'm weird that way.
