Unlikely Warlock Transmog, Battlenet Guilt and Aaaiiieee!
Yeah Cim … no … I DO like it but it’s never going to happen. WHY? Oh come on, where’s that weapon from? Huh? Firelands! You can forget about that until Cat’s reached exalted with them. She’s never going to let you take her turn at Firelands … not happening.
I mean she let everyone use her pets to do the Celestial Tournament when they needed the valor and coins but this? I’m just saying, not going to happen. And I’m not convinced the shoulders will really work when you see them in person … if you ever do. I AM NOT a wet blanket, just being realistic.
I’m going to whine now so I’ll understand if you leave. It has been a bad week … or two or … yeah. I had to make an emergency drive in the torrential rain yesterday. I thought for safety’s sake I’d use my glasses instead of my bifocal contacts because they’ve been acting up lately when I drive. The eye that sees OUTSIDE of the car keeps going on the fritz which means I can clearly see the speed at which I’m barreling down the road, just not the … you know … the actual road.
Apparently the Gods of Life Challenges thought that was cheating, so they made one of my eyeglass lens fall out halfway there and then the “check engine” light came on, then they shot down a bolt of lightening near me just to make their point.
So this morning, a server maintenance … well shit … okay … 8 minutes left … we can do Skunky, no problem. WTF! Blizzard! You promised us 8 minutes! What … oh … no internet! I will die! No internet will kill me! Aaaiiieee!
Yeah, I should stop whining and be thankful our house didn’t fall into a sinkhole. So I like the new battlenet app thingy but it’s been generating a lot of guilt. When I’m in game half the time I’m actually down the hall or on the phone so I miss whispers sometimes but since I don’t know I missed them I don’t feel bad.
Now with the app there’s a little button with the missed whisper … help! help! I must … wait, it was four hours ago you derp. They’re in bed now. You can’t contact them to say you’re sorry you missed them … crap. Guilt.
Yes, I worry about stuff like that, hell I worry about everything. When I was working myself into a state on my deluge of the century, one-eyed, check engine drive I thought, geez would you freakin’ calm down already. You need to be more stoic. Think of a stoic role model and channel them.
So I came up with one, Pete the dog. Pete was the epitome of stoicism. Not the philosophy kind but the dictionary kind.
the quality or behavior of a person who accepts what happens without complaining or showing emotion
Late in his life he had a few bouts with cancer. They would chop a part off and send him home. Toe gone, no problem. He’d jump out of the truck and run off. Another toe, piece of cake. He defeated cancer with his stoicism, he ignored it. Old age did finally get him but no one can defeat old age.
This will be me! You will not rattle me check engine light! Glasses with one lens! I laugh in your face! I am Pete! Battlenet app, I refuse your guilt!
No internet … no internet … I will channel Pete … I will … HALP! HALP! I CAN’T LIVE LIKE THIS, HALP!
Um … so yeah … AAAIIIEEE!
