I’ve spent the last whole week waxing philosophical about the leaked changes and then reporting the results from BlizzCon 2009, but I certainly didn’t just sit around picking my nose during that whole time.
I have been one busy little bee. Busy as a whole hive of bees!
First off, I would like to say that this guy sucks:
That’s right, I’ve been out grinding for my Netherwing drakes. This is the second to the last guy available for racing. I can get so close… but then he dives at the pier thing and I lose him. There has to be a way to do it without a pally aura or other speed-boost. People keep saying they’ve done it… I’ll come back and try again when I feel like I don’t have enough pain and suffering in my life. Continue reading →
Last week was both my birthday and my husband’s birthday so our friends took us out to dinner.
The waitress is taking our drink orders, I order mine, “diet, no ice.”
Ice in a beverage makes it too cold and I get phenomenally painful hiccups.
These hiccups that are the stuff of legend with my friends laughing at me for hours while I’m clutching my sides and wanting to die.
Not to mention, the ice machine in many restaurants is a breeding ground for bacterial infestation. You probably don’t want to think too hard about whether or not they washed the lemon slice adorning your drink either.
Anyway, my drink comes out with ice.
One of my friends is quick to pounce on the waitress and request the ice be removed.
Saturday I was screwing around on my priest and my husband pops his head into my office.
Need ranged DPS for EoE 10.
I need that one for the Focusing Iris quest!
I think it was 2 tries, not bad at all for a PuG. We would have done better the first try, but we weren’t far enough away from the center of the platform when it broke so we pretty much ended up sitting on top of Maly. That doesn’t work so well.
Neck upgrade for me!
Headed back into Ulduar 25 with (mostly) the same group of people as last weekend. They swapped a few people out on their side and my rogue hubby got to join us. He absolutely killed the charts. Continue reading →
Anyone remember this post where I mention that we had fallen into an alliance with 2 other guilds?
And anyone notice how I really only talk about 1 of those guilds?
Between the 3 guilds we are all dysfunctional in different ways.
My guild has 3-4 “raiders” with several more “trying very hard to be raiders.” We’re an older group, all but 2 members (recent recruits) are old enough to drink. Most of us have met and several of us have known each other for 15 or more years.
The guild that we’ve been mostly working with is full of nice people, mediocre skill, and completely unorganized. Nothing starts on time and they spent over 2 hours on Thaddius in Naxx 10 last night. I eventually joined the raid to get them through it. It’s nice being at the top of the meters, but there are situations where it feels like a chore.
The second guild is younger, mostly family, and better raiders. They show up to raids prepared, but are likely to start raids earlier than scheduled – if you aren’t on when they decide to start you can kiss your spot goodbye. Continue reading →
