I’m on Fire!

Posted in General WoW with tags , , on November 28, 2011 by Tome oftheAncient

I mean literally, I’m on fire! Yeah, teach you to mess with me, you Rustberg Villager you! I spent an awful lot of time in Rustberg Village trying to get a screen shot of my meteorite crashing down to earth, talk about shock and awe! Unfortunately I haven’t been able to react quickly enough and I’m left with just the fiery cat part. I love my Ricket’s Magnetic Fireball. Mr. Robot tells me Fluid Death would be preferable and I believe him, but I’d have no fiery meteorites so I’m keeping it. Seems like a ramble huh, yup, start of the week, it’s inevitable.

4.3 is supposed to be here tomorrow and I feel sort of guilty. After looking at my search terms an awful lot of people are arriving here today expectantly looking for “true facts” about 4.3 because of an old Ironsally post. Sorry, my bad. I’ve just been goofing off, I have no “true facts” to offer. I’ve been busy embarrassing myself and giving into addiction.

My alliance Warlock is hanging out in Uldum grinding cloth to make an Illusionary Bag for my Druid. Since she’s there I always do the two Ramkahen rep dailies as it’s something to do first thing before I have my contacts in, don’t really need to see. So I was doing Fire From the Sky and I was smoking hot! Those guys were running and flying in the air higgly piggly. I had to have killed thousands, why wasn’t the quest completing. I put my nose to the screen to see my count … 13 … what! But I’ve been acing it, what’s going … oh … who threw that bomb … yes, someone else was there, THEY were the one who was acing it, sigh, awkward.

So it’s not like I didn’t see this one coming. I admit I did manage to resist for quite some time but I finally succumbed. A fiery, meteorite throwing Druid just isn’t enough. I must also have a  psychedelically-colored troll Druid Mon. What else, oh yeah, the addiction thingy.

I have an overabundance of Whiptail. It doesn’t really sell well anymore and it’s expensive to list so I send it to my scribe to mill. So now she has an overabundance of Blackfallow Ink. So she’s been making Mysterious Fortune Cards which is fine but none of them are reaching the auction house or being made into Fortune Cookies. Why? Because I apparently now have a Mysterious Fortune Card gambling addiction, I’m flipping them all before my bank alt can get them. Yes, I’m ashamed. I know the odds of getting this card are pretty remote but I just can’t stop myself. What’s the number for the local chapter of AGA? Oh, come on, so I suppose you want me to believe YOU don’t do it too, so you don’t know the number of Azerothian Gamblers Anonymous. Pshaw, fine have it your way, I’ll just have to look it up.

IntPiPoMo — Fifty of Fifty

Y’see, a picture is worth a thousand words.  The NaNoWriMo word target is fifty thousand. That means our IntPiPoMo target is fifty pictures, over the thirty days of November.

Fifty! Whew, I made it. The first screen shots in this group are about my Druid’s beginnings. Remember when Timbermaw reputation wasn’t so easy to get? Countless Winterfall and Deadwood furbolgs died by her claws. The last few are from BC, probably the expansion that she’d say was the most fun for her. Doing the Swift Flight Form quest chain, enough people around to bring down Durn the Hungerer and do the Ring of Blood.

Going through Wrath screen shots sort of brings back the thrill of stepping off the ship in Howling Fjord for the first time. And Storm Peaks, how I loved that place. I wasn’t surprised to get to K3 and find goblins. They always seem to stake out the most beautiful locations.

On going through my screen shot folder it’s become evident that my fingers must accidentally take screen shots of their own volition. Most of them are just suitable for the recycle bin but one errant twitch resulted in my yawning cat. Yay for twitchy fingers!

I was going to try to organize these by zones but in my hurry to catch up before the end of the month I am throwing caution to the wind and posting with wild abandon, zero organization!

Too Stuffed to Jump

Posted in Dog with tags , , , on November 23, 2011 by Tome oftheAncient

Yeah well, it was overdue. I haven’t posted any dog photos for a while. I just thought I’d put this one up as a cautionary measure. Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving, and you know what can happen, this. Just say no. If where you live you don’t celebrate a day of thanksgiving tomorrow, well don’t do it either, or do if you want. I was just looking at the dog’s baby pictures and this one so reminded me of how full I’ve felt after eating thanksgiving dinner, flopped on the couch watching football and I wanted to post it.

In his case this was taken after his stupid human left a 20lb. dog food bag unattended. I didn’t know he would drill into the side of it releasing all the food. I didn’t know he’d attempt to eat all the food. I know him better now.

What does this have to do with WoW? Um, nothing, I’m getting to that. Oh wait, and another thing, if you ever find yourself working for yourself here’s a heads up. If a client tries to get a better price, or faster turn around by hinting at future work, said work will NEVER be offered. It’s like a rule. One of these clients just called. Every time she calls it’s an emergency. She needs it done immediately, she’s sorry, she just got out of the hospital, she’ll do anything if I can just get this done NOW.

Well, I’m trying to catch up with screen shots for IntPiPoMo but okay. But really, every single time she calls she says she just got out of the hospital. That’s the trouble with telling stories, you can’t keep track of who you told what. If it were true she wouldn’t be walking around, she’d have no working parts left. I work for money, end of story. You don’t need to make up excuses for asking for last minute work, you just have to pay me, simple.

Oh geez, yup, sorry. What I WANTED to say when I opened WordPress this morning before the stove packed it in and the last-minute lady with hospitalitis called was that I feel like something of a nitwit. This post is actually Paladin related. See below,my lovely Paladin, mesmerized by that piece of pie.

I wish I wouldn’t get all over the place like this, it makes it hard to decide what category to put it in. But, anyway, a while ago I said that I was having a hard time learning about how to play her. I said all the guides were for level capped Paladins. So you should never listen to anything I have to say on serious topics. Why?

I visit MMO Melting Pot daily. After I read my blogs I go there because they will find me yet more blogs to read. Apparently I only look at the left side of the page. Last night my eyes must have been rolling around with fatigue and accidentally veered over to the right side of the page. Eureka! What have we here. Quick Start Guides for all classes! Retribution Paladin DPS in 4.2!  And, What am I doing wrong as a … Retribution Paladin. Maybe you don’t need that one but I do. So, if you need a starter guide to a class, they’ve got it covered. I take it back, there are guides out there if you’re just starting out in a new class you just have to look at the … whole page.

I don’t think I’ll get my catch up set of  screen shots up today. I have to start cleaning the house to make it appear tomorrow as though it always looks clean. So to anyone celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, have a great Thanksgiving Day! To all those who aren’t, have a great Thursday!

IntPiPoMo — First Ten

IntPiPoMo

Y’see, a picture is worth a thousand words.  The NaNoWriMo word target is fifty thousand. That means our IntPiPoMo target is fifty pictures, over the thirty days of November.

I have been seeing all the beautiful screen shots of the participants in Angelya of Revive & Rejuvenate’s IntPiPoMo. I love screen shots but I kept telling myself no, you have a lot of rl stuff to do in November. I should have known better. I wouldn’t have been so behind if I had just let my screen shot addiction have free reign. So here’s me catching up!
