New Look and Nerd Redemption

Through some serendipitous celestial event, some fortuitous alignment of the stars, everything just came together this morning. Yes, I will no longer be representing myself to the world (of WoW) as a generic kitty. Thanks to coming second in Kamalia’s Great Blog Noblegarden Egg Hunt 3.0 I now have a beautiful new avatar created by the lovely and talented Vidyala of Manalicious and From Draenor With Love. Cat is just thrilled and she’s been running around Stormwind showing it to everyone.

Then I visited Navimie and found her 25 May is Geek Pride Day post and a chance to redeem myself. She said Cyrme had found a second nerd test! This is it! A second chance to make up for that 71 score because of the stupid math and on Geek Pride Day too!

Oh the pressure! Thankfully the fact that I used to watch shows with talking cars finally paid off. I just knew that’d come in handy one day! So I am proudly a Cool Nerd Queen on the day I get a new avatar AND just in time to honor Geek Pride Day, although I really thought I’d do better on dorkiness but you can’t have everything.

In game I’ve decided to stop fooling around and get serious about my bucket list. I finally got my poor Shaman, who has been sitting at 84 1/2, to 85. She was somewhat annoyed that I haven’t updated her clothes since level 80. She thinks Ironsally had a negative influence on me and she could be right. I do seem to have developed a rather cavalier attitude toward gear, I should really at least make her something to wear now that she’s 85.

And now, Hunter, get ready. We WILL have the Vial of the Sands before Mists arrives, we MUST find the recipe, MUST!

So yeah, that’s what I’ll be doing, serious digging. But first I must change into my new avatar so I can see how I look! Exciting! And I even remembered to get pine nuts so I can make Kamalia’s Cornmeal & Pine Nut-Crusted Fresh-Caught Fish for dinner! Yay for Geek Pride Day!

  1. I love the Avatar! Vid did an awesome job as usual. You know, I did see that avatar in her list of work yesterday and thought it looked like you but didn’t recognise the name associated with the image 😛

    I’m glad you managed to redeem yourself in the second Nerd Factor test too… lol

    • Isn’t it wonderful! I’ll be prowling blogs today to get to use it whether I have something useful to say or not, lol!

      Whew, yes, thanks for finding that second test so I could salvage my nerd cred!

  2. Love the new avatar! I may have to hit up Vidyala pretty soon myself!

  3. That is a fantastic avatar! All you people with new avatars make me want to get one too! 😀 /bows to Nerd Queen and a big hug to you for Geek Pride Day!

  4. I kind of thought that avatar looked like Cat when I saw it in the list of samples in Vid’s latest post, and then when I moused over it and saw the name, I was so tickled. She looks great! Congrats again!

    I hope you enjoy the fish 😀

    I took the second nerd test and got the following scores:
    76% science/math
    42% technology/computer
    89% scifi/comic
    79% history/literature
    25% dumb/dork/awkward

    • I think I lucked out on the questions on the second test!

      I am soooo happy I sent in my list of eggs, I almost didn’t cause I didn’t have many.

      I got catfish for it, I’m excited to try it out tonight, I got some corn on the cob to go with it!

    Grats on the new avatar and redemptive geek status! 🙂 Vid did a great job with Cat.

  6. Yep, I love the new Avatar! I was wondering who was making those and was gonna toss you an email asking about it.
