Half of a Solitary Cat and Orange Face

catflightCat is truly a Feral Cat. She makes her solitary way through the world and she’s pretty happy that way. I’ve met people who only play in groups; a woman I met once said she’d have to “practice” playing alone because she wasn’t good at it. It seemed strange at first but I think she’s right, if you play one way exclusively you DO play differently. If you’re always alone you don’t have to worry about pulling aggro, you’ve already got it all. Cat used to get in trouble that way back a few expansions. Not a nice feeling when a boss turns around from the tank and says, “Hey you! Druid, com’ere!” Oops.

Cat loves to find a group for Galleon, I don’t know why she has it in for him. They are pretty hard to come by anymore but the other day a group was forming so she set out for The Valley of the Four Winds. On reaching Galleon they had assembled quite a large group, they were full. I noticed plaintive requests for an invite … repeatedly. I whispered the few people asking, telling them it was all good, just help during the fight, you’ll get a roll.

I got whispers back, “That won’t work, no heals.” I didn’t know what to say to that. It hadn’t even occurred to me. Really? They weren’t even going to try without heals?


I know what’s going on, every time I try to play the game as intended this happens. I don’t know why I do it, it makes me unhappy and then I hate the blog too. And then I delete everything. This time I left half of the post so you’d see I WAS making an effort but just … you know, who gives a shit.

So … orange face. I’ve become one. Years ago I worked with a very pretty young lady. Really, the first thing you’d notice was that she was exceptionally pretty. The second thing you’d notice was her orange face. Why? Why would such a pretty girl put so much makeup on that it would turn her face orange?

One day we were having lunch and she started talking about how self-conscience she was about her face. I didn’t know if I should acknowledge the  excessive use of makeup. She went on, she was talking about her acne scars. Acne scars? Huh. I’d never noticed. I’d only noticed the orange face. BACK TO THE FUTURE.

wcI have every skin condition there is, I am allergic to everything including the dogs. I have now been gifted with rosacea. It makes your face red and if you’re really lucky puts pits and stuff on your face and you’ll eventually look like this.

You know how when you look in a mirror you see who you think you are rather than what people see? And then sometimes when walking past a mirror or a window you’ll accidentally see yourself the way you are, I guess you take your brain by surprise and it can’t filter fast enough so anyway I saw my face.

I HAVE BECOME THE ORANGE FACE. In an effort to obscure the red I am now orange.

Well yeah … not that interesting but believe me it’s WAY more interesting than the rest of the post was. Trust me.

Yours Truly,

Orange Face

  1. Please don’t make me send Guarf over there to pinch you. It really hurts.

    • Oh wow, they were so wrong about themselves, made me want to cry. I don’t very often think about what I look like but recently the nurse at the doctor’s office kept staring at me and I thought it was the red, then she said she couldn’t believe I was the age on my chart. That woman is my new BFF, forget the Tillers, lol!

    • When I was dating my husband and first visited his home it had a half-size statue of W.C. in the living room so I figure if that’s what I turn out looking like he’ll be cool with it!

  3. Who doesn’t like someone that can juggle?

    And we’re all so busy nowadays, we’re all juggling…

  4. ok, first it was the sly comment about hunters… and I let ya slide, now you did it woman! Leave WC alone. One of the greatest comic geniuses [sic] ever (next to George and Gracie and Jack and Fred). What’s next, little kittens?

    LOL, just giving you crap Tome. 😀 (since grumpy isn’t posting much these days because LFR is being so bad, I have no one else to give crap to)

    And then reading the first part and “BAM” no more. Where’s the closure? We need closure. “Orange Face” isn’t closure.

    Why do you think your blogging is boring? Sincerely, write. Don’t pull that “rest is boring”. Folks would not be here if that is what they thought. 😀 – that’s what I learned.

    Good post.

    stay frosty…


    • Hi Roo and thank you! I think the problem is I bore me sometimes, lol. I’ll bet you like the Three Stooges too, my husband CANNOT understand why I don’t like them and I can’t understand why he does.

      Oh, nothing much happened, I helped and got a roll and those other people didn’t. They tried to make their own group but on my server a full Galleon group is probably everyone there is so they lost out for fear of no healing. I mean what’s the worst that could happen, dying?

      • of course, n’yuk, n’yuk n’yuk.

        “Little fly upon the wall, Ain’t ya got no clothes at all? Ain’t ya got no shimmy shirt? Ain’t ya got no petti-skirt? Boo, fly, ain’t ya cold?”

  5. gosh where is everyone getting those avatars? Did you draw them Tome?
