Tiny Purple Fishes

Month of the Blind Date

Ah, February. A month for friends, flirtations, even flings for some. I'll be leading the celebrations on two oceans this year, Cobalt and Sage. You can expect tournaments, trivia, a few friendly rounds of Friend or Foe, haiku and screenshot related games, along with portrait opportunities. Oh yes, there will be prizes! For more information, including times and locations for all oceans, see Valentine's Ship Shindig.

All this frivolity not your style? Feeling forlorn, forgotten or forsaken? If you've ever been alone on a Valentine's day, ever suffered through a blind date as a favor to a friend, ever played the role of "Wing-Man" to a more bold and successful love stalker, I salute you by offering myself as sacrifice. We shy, awkward few should band together and celebrate our refusal to bow-down to the Hallmark sugary sappiness and take to the high seas! Late the evening of Friday the 13th, I'll be hosting several tournaments and competitions, the winners of which will be entered into a drawing for the chance to be my blind date for an evening (well, for an hour, really). This event is open to all 6 English production oceans. To learn more, see Be Galene's Blind Date.

If you've not yet checked it out, several OMs are currently twitterpated with Twitter. You can follow myself at GaleneYPP. For more official tweets, including news on events or issues in game, follow PuzzlePirates.

Peek Behind the Scenes

If you're into pink and roses and hearts, frilly romantic notions and sappy love songs, you'll get a kick out of these images. I'm often asked about my work space. Here she is, fully decked out on all oceans, the Tea Ell Sea. As you can see, she's painted in my colors, with appropriate lighting. She boasts parlor tables of all types, storage for all my magic tools and a sleepover room for pillow fights with my fellow OMs.

TeaEllSea1 TeaEllSea2 TeaEllSea3 TeaEllSea4

In all seriousness, I do get tired of creating my costume and weapons for tournaments when I'd like to switch up the weapons. Having a supply pre-made that I can grab along with a tournament board in the same room, is convenient. Parlor tables located there eliminate the need to risk entering a busy inn (and players assuming I'm thus free to play or chat) to deal with issues at the tables. Ok, so the pillows were just for fun.

Delayed Resolution - Looking for Closure?

In my first blog, I asked you mates to offer up your thoughts on where my blog name, "Tiny Purple Fishes" came from. The phrase comes from the song "Tales of Brave Ulysses", which in my head was being performed by Cream but was indeed written by Eric Clapton and Martin Sharp. Eggs to Lado of Cobalt and Rehab of Malachite for being the first to identify the song, one by performing artist and one by songwriter.

I love the song, the sea and the old stories in mythology. For me, the fish also represent how my brain works at things. I might have several dozen seemingly random and unrelated thoughts, like individual fish swimming along. In my mind, however, they're all part of some related larger school of fish, though this isn't apparent to others until I toss the net out and catch them all in together.

Eeee! Thank you! Pretty egg is pretty. Finally, all those years of magpie-like trivia collection have paid off. Heh.
