Sunday evening, I'd been taking it easy all day and had logged off Eve due to all the lag issues caused by the ebil h4x0rs. At about 11pm after a couple of Vodka Redbulls and a bottle of wine I decide to log onto Eve, pick up some stuff I'd bought in Yulai and head back down to Gehi. I figured I'd be in bed by midnight, get a good nights sleep and be in for a meeting at work bright and early Monday morning.
Whilst I'm travelling I'm chatting to a guy I know from Planetside who I'd only just discovered plays Eve now and to a couple of the Directors/Execs in the BNC command channel. We're shooting the shit and I'm having a laugh so I figure a couple of shots of Voddy before bedtime won't do me any harm.
All is going to plan until I get to Gehi and realise I'm actually a bit drunk and it's now about midnight. In the Gehi station there's about 3 hostiles and one of the m0o guys. Thinking "what the hell, if I'm in bed by 1am I'll be fine" I load up a Raven with scrambling kit and go outside to camp the station for half an hour as I'm feeling a bit lively now. Patron from m0o joins me outside and we camp for 15-20 mins waiting to get lucky with a hostile undocking. Soon enough one does... frigate bah... don't even get a lock.
A few reports come in of 4-5 FIX in A2-V27 from BoB pilots passing through but no visual on the bad guys. Patron heads to bed and I decide that FIX will probably be in frigs so I'll go play with them in my Raven. Despite mild intoxication I realise that taking my Dread gear off might be a good idea so I refit in more standard kit, Arbies, C5-L etc.. and head down to A2-V27.
As I arrive Kurt Hectic from Evolution logs on in an Apoc in A2 and we both set up shop on the Kaira gate. In warps a Typhoon at long range and begins sniping us. Kurt's taking a bit of damage and we warp about to a few cans trying to get close to him to no avail. Marko Debrault also appears then in his Megathron also sniping us. After a litle bit of verbal jousting in local (well behaved of course) Marko warps in on me whilst I'm sat off the gate without his wingman in the Typhoon. I get him scrambled and unleash volleys of cruise missiles, align to depart and Kurt warps down to lay on the hurt. Marko's pounding the crap out of me with a full gank setup on his megathron so when Kurt's also in range hitting Marko I warp out with 50% structure just as Marko goes down.
1 nil to the good guys.
I'll edit more of the story in later but to cut a long story short we ended up in 9CG fighting FIX, i lost an Apoc and went to bed at 5:30am before having to get up at 7:30am for work :/
When will I ever learn that I need more sleep!!
