Happy Winter’s Veil

Okay … I can take a hint. I’ve been DCed so many times this morning. I get it, I get it. Cookies to make, rooms to clean for visitors. Blizzard is telling me, get off the computer. Spoilsports.

Anyway, I just wanted to say happy holidays. The part other than the cleaning and cooking … unless you like cooking. Although Cat is the one with all the holiday decorations, Rose there was the most excited when she saw her tree in her Garrison. She took flight without even changing to bird form.

I received an unexpected holiday gift … sort of. My Paladin Blood Elf wasn’t going anywhere, I started a Druid thinking I’d try Balance again, didn’t get liftoff there either. Ironsally’s not looking to get any farther … haven’t been back to Wildstar.

My Aurin is stuck in the town, can’t remember the name, where she was tasked with jumping up to the top of the tree. She keeps falling off half way up. She will NOT leave until she manages it. It’s also not helping her self esteem that people keep flying past her up the tree … essentially one-shotting  the tree.

So anyway, every time I login I feel a little guilty when I see my former main, well second former main sitting there. I stopped liking my Enhancement Shaman when they went duel wield. I changed to Elemental, I never “got” it.

So on a whim I changed back to Enhancement and she kicked butt even though half her gear was still intellect. What is this? I like her again! It’s a Winter Veil gift! I’m dying to get back in Azeroth and get her properly dressed but … Ginger Snaps.

If the house is full of dust bunnies come Christmas I know I’d be forgiven, but no Ginger Snaps? My life would not be worth living.

Happy Winter’s Veil! May your cookies make themselves and your dust bunnies disappear. Tell them they could come here, they’d have lots of company.

An End to the Torment of Freaking Fruitcakes

rottenhelperSweet Elune … I am finally freed from that painful obsession. I can FINALLY stop flying back and forth seven times each day for a chance, a chance mind you to acquire a Rotten Little Helper. The madness has ended … I can now purchase food for the holidays and clean house prior to guest’s arrival. Yeah, I’m not sure I’m that happy about the last one.

Cim was the third run this morning. I had decided it would be the last one today. I came to grips with the reality that I probably wouldn’t be getting a Helper. I was Lumpyless through six Winter Veils until kind Helke sent Cat hers. So it would be. It wasn’t the flying … it’s wasn’t the boss because I think in the 42 bazillion times I flew up there I only saw the boss maybe three times … I just picked up the box and returned …

That’s when the soul crushing began. Another FREAKING FRUITCAKE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO … I can’t take it! Make it stop! Please! Something else, anything else, a Grindgear Toy Gorilla, ANYTHING! Just not a … not a … see, I can’t even say it.

So a friend comes to visit yesterday and my mother comes over to see her and … and … she walks in the door with a FRUITCAKE. It took every bit of will I had to not slam the door and run away screaming. I don’t know, the fruitcake aversion damage may be permanent.

Figures the rotten little guy would come out for a Warlock, same disposition those two. I asked Cim to turn her mount into a reindeer for the shot, she just gave me a hand gesture and said, get on with it.

Anyway, I want to express my sincerest apologies to the Ironforge Sanitation Department … really, we’re so sorry. We honestly didn’t know flushing seven fruitcakes a day would have the effect they did on the plumbing. I’m sorry they backed up. I’m sorry there was an incident.

Yeah … we got out just before those pipes blew. I heard it was … freaking awful.

Happy Winter’s Veil!
