Illusion and Loss
Okay, really Druid, I know it’s you. I can see your weapon AND you’re standing right next to that Human male. So we all pretty much figured out who you are, you’re not fooling anyone. Not quite the look you were hoping for, huh. Apparently it takes skills to use Potion of Illusion properly. She was probably going for a sexy Draenei look and the whole thing backfired on her. It’s okay though, she sees him every day after her daily appointment with Anzu. Better luck next time.
Yesterday pretty much sucked. I had to spend what seemed like hours on the phone with the billing department of a hosting company I’m trying to extricate myself from because once they were good, they were bought out, and now they’re really, really, awful. I thought I got it all worked out but I see this morning I have an invoice for the hosting I cancelled.
Then I made my check of Döra’s Log to see if she might have returned. Döra participated in what I call the Psyn/Vry Ironman Challenge last year. She was a great alternate leveler. One of her characters, an incredibly frugal Dwarf, Thriftee, leveled to 85 without spending one copper. I loved reading about Döra the level 1 Explorer and Thriftee and her Ironman. She stopped posting last year in October. I worried something was wrong, although I knew it was more than likely she had just moved on to another game.
Blog has been removed.
Yesterday that’s what I saw when I checked Döra’s Log. I hate being all emotional and weepy but that made me all emotional and weepy. I was pretty shocked at how bad I felt, I just wasn’t aware that it would upset me that much, but it did. She was not coming back. Other bloggers I read have left, but they’ve usually given a warning, had good reason, and their blog’s still there so they aren’t really gone.
I logged in to avoid more telephone calls to billing departments for a while. It occurred to me if you could see what character I’m playing you could pretty much tell what kind of mood I’m in. Characters like Lessismora or dual-boxing mean I’m in a bad/sad mood or I’ve had to deal with lots of human contact irl and need to be alone. Druid means I’m not, I’d never realized that before. She’s like the “social me.”
I hope Döra’s sitting in a Cantina somewhere like Tatooine, knocking back a few. That’s what I’m going to think anyway. There are days when I think, oh shut up, no one wants to read the crap you write. I just wanted to say if other bloggers feel that way at times, I DO want to read what you write. I very much do. In fact I’m apparently counting on a post being there.
I decided to cheer myself up by putting a rat on Navi’s shoulder. It’s OKAY. She said she likes them.
