I am getting a haircut after work (just happen to have the appointment, not a special FFXIV haircut)
I am cleaning the heck out of my house because my girlfriend is coming over. Going to the grocery store for supplies for the weekend. Then we have to go out to celebrate her brother's birthday, which I'm really looking forward to.

I've told her I want to be in bed no later than 10:30 (EST). She is completely cool with my video game habit....as long as it doesn't consume my life. She just laughed when I said I was getting up at 5 a.m. to play a video game. All she said was to be quiet getting out of bed and wear headphones.

What are you guys doing today to get ready for tomorrow?

I hear you on the passing of time part. I'm pretty thankful I have plans for this evening other than waiting to go to bed so I can wake up to play...I might have to take some Advil PM to fall asleep...

Freaking out, man. I'm freaking out.

This wait has been too difficult of a test on my sanity.

I'll be getting my shopping for Dragoncon finished tonight so that I won't have to worry about it over the weekend and during the week, then I plan on getting some house cleaning done. I live an exciting life. Smiley: laugh

Trying to get everything I can possibly get done before tomorrow so that I don't have to do much this weekend but play. I'll be mowing the lawn, cleaning the house, working on craft sh*t for our wedding, cutting my hair, etc. Then we're going to the NYS Fair at 5 tonight to see a FREE concert by George Clinton! Heck yeah! Going to be a busy day to keep me occupied. Tomorrow will be here before I know it. Smiley: grin

Nothing much Reading various forum webpages. I changed my SE account email and password as it's been a while since I did so. I'd play The Walking Dead Telltale game but the two year old is next to me watching cartoons. So I'll play Civilization 5 instead.

Which reminds me, if anyone wants to add me on their steam FL feel free. Just look me up. The name is Shamaflamana.

I prepared several drops, so I won't have to waste time eating and drinking. Also I converted my chair into a toilet with leather cushions. Brought the sprinkler from the backyard, through the window so I'm able to wash myself as well if needed.

:D

I would like to get up at 5am and at least start to play. For Saturday though, I'll be at work for 10hrs before I come home late. I will be itching at work all day thinking about everyone else playing. I know it is not a race, but somehow I'll feel left out if I'm not at least close in levels so I can play with everyone else. Otherwise, I'm not doing anything special to get ready for early access. I should remind my girlfriend that this game is launching though...

Just the normal stuff that I do every day. I'm actually not sure when I'll start playing. It's supposed to be a great weekend here weather wise and there's not many left b4 the cold sets in.

Killing time with a road trip to play a gig tonight in an eastern Vermont college town - I should be home by 4:00 a.m. Eat a little breakfast and see if I can get in at the starting bell. I'll probably crash around 7:00

Currently working hard at work, or hardly working, which ever you'd prefer, and checking out the forums here. When i get off it's off to the gym, then pick up the little lady from her job, head home to shower, then out to dinner and finally when i get home later tonight it's all ME3 multiplayer.

Even though I came into work at 2am this morning, my day will still be busy. When I get home, my wife and I will go to the Social Security Office so she can get her name changed ( Smiley: smile ). Then we're going to a hair appointment so she can get her hair trimmed. Then we're going out to eat a very good New York style Italian/Pizza place that is close by. Then we're going home where I will watch as many ARR videos as I can to pass the time. At some point, I will go to bed so that I can be up before 5am EST for Early Access. I'm definitely tired enough to go to bed early!

Busy day, but should be fun and should fly by. :)

That's me, but switch the genders and change ME3 multiplayer to FFXI.

I go in to work in a few hours and have to close.... After I work my 11 hour shift I will crash and then wake up around 5am or 6am.... Log in to the game and expect to be unable to log due to server congestion.... Once I get this error five or six times I will rage and hulk smash my laptop and throw my controller (that probably is not compatible with the game anyways) through my front window. I will punch myself repeatedly in the face until I can barely see straight. Once I have calmed down a little I will attempt to log in again. Once I am in the game I will settle down and quit after an hour because it is nothing like FFXI.....

J/K I cannot wait!!!

Mowing my lawn, buying snacks and water for the week. Making sure my weekend meals are easy to cook so I don't spend time preparing food. Going to tell some people to not even bother to try and call me this weekend. I took a day off from work so I have a 3 day weekend.

Downloading the newest patch to the game client as of 9:45am EDT :)

It's 1035.90MB in size, I believe that's 1.04gb more or less
