Really Crappy Timing

shoeshineI’ve been in a really bad WoW place, I’ve been WoW-depressed. I don’t like to post when I’m WoW-depressed, it seems rude and I guess I think it might be contagious. Yesterday it only got worse. I witnessed a day long bullying. First thing in the morning a person was looking for a HS group. A bully jumped on him accusing him of wanting to be carried and unfortunately they engaged the bully.

By afternoon this whole thing was still going on but had been picked up by other wannabe bullies. These people were not as skilled as the original bully so pretty much just resorted to hurling variations of SCRUB at them based on the fact that they were attired in a mish-mash of crafted and Timeless Isle gear … like me.

Curious, I looked up the original bully. iLevel 573, Gold in Proving Grounds … everything you could possibly want but apparently that wasn’t enough to make them happy, they had to bully too. Yep, us scrubs won’t be in there ruining your Heroics, you’ll have this wonderfully skilled player … have fun. This makes me sad. I am of an age where I am immune to bullying but others aren’t.

Cat went to visit Dalaran and get a shoeshine from Sheddle Glossgleam which usually cheers her right up. We check email. Oh! A new follower on Twitter! I usually follow anyone who follows me who is WoW related and I can read the language they tweet in.

I get a tweet right back with a link. MY GOD WE’RE UNDER ATTACK! COME ON DOGS! TO THE BASEME … Oh. It’s on the computer. Every warning, beeper and bell fired off. All the software that protects me from myself had hit DEFCON 32. Well this is just depressing … they followed me to get me to become embroiled in whatever nefarious plot they have going … geeeez.

So yeah … I needed cheering up. I should have known better than to peruse the AH but … yeah … that would have made sense and I so never go there.

crappytimingYes, I’m broke now. I’m justifying it by repeatedly looking here and patting myself on the back that I didn’t pay $250.00 REAL dollars for the Ethereal Soul-Trader. What a clever shopper I am …

So anyway this cheered up everyone a bit after the attack of buyer’s remorse faded and Cat and Cim argued over who got to play with him. You have to take him around and kill things to get your ethereal credit to buy his stuff. And it has to be something he deems worthy apparently, wouldn’t cough any up for a Virmen.

Cat wanted the Ethereal Mutagen and Cim wants the oufit. Cat won.

petmutSo while I’m out there trying to cheerify myself I get a whisper from JD. WHAT! The preorder is live? It’s here? Today? Now?

NEWBIRDAs it turns out, I wouldn’t have had to spend *mumble mumble mumble* gold on the Ethereal Soul-Trader to cheer myself up had I been paying ANY attention at all. I have a Dread Raven and a cute Dread Hatchling and a free boost to 90 for buying the Digital Deluxe edition of Warlords. I wasn’t prepared. The two characters I was going to choose between were level 10 and 29. They need to get to 60 as I want the profession boost.

I’m going to be busy which is great but … you know … I have really crappy timing.
