Guardian of Cenarius, Lodge 12 Meeting Outfit

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on March 15, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

I’ll try to act like I have some sense but yesterday was so exciting. Riding on Amateur Azerothian and Effraeti’s RP mogging coattails my swtor speeder keyword got completely run over, smashed, crushed, by a giant speeding WoW Insider. Seriously, I don’t think that thing is ever going to run again. And serendipitously, yesterday while I had nothing to do, I made this outfit. Okay I had stuff to do but really, priorities, this outfit was more important. Navimie at The Daily Frostwolf had a post about the difficulty of putting together a sexy leather outfit so I fired up WoW Model Viewer to see if I could come up with one.

My first effort came out looking all Daisy Duke, just more wholesome. Considering the amount of time that Druid spends chasing after Stormwind Guards and other nefarious pastimes you’d think I’d be able to come up with a killer sexy outfit for her but no matter what I did she looks perky and cute, someone you’d want to buy magazine subscriptions from if she came to your door.

So I kinda gave up and the outfit above is the final result. I think it looks appropriate for the Annual Moonglade Guardian of Cenarius, Lodge 12 Meeting. Since she’s feral she never gets to wear a dress so she was excited. And she was so pleased to finally be able to wear a pretty hat that works with … those ears. I hope she BEHAVES herself at the meeting and doesn’t break into dance. And for all I know she’s probably wearing plate under there somewhere, but anyway, that’s my Druid’s sexy outfit.

WHAT? I’m sorry but your ears ARE a fashion challenge, you know they are. An Undead? You dare me to sexify an Undead? Oh, you’re so on. Hmmm, what works with pokey bones? Help!

Bite Me, or Devil Girl Will Get You

First, apologies. Posting daily seems to have become a habit. Habits are hard to make but this one seems to have just sorta happened which means I’ll be talking whether or not I have anything interesting to say, sorry. The only other real habits I have are walking the dogs regardless of weather, earthquakes, what have you. And I’m really proud that I finally have made a habit of drinking the daily required amount of water. Maybe next time I get a blood test they can actually find some.

Anyway, once again I have to hijack a Matty at Sugar & Blood post, but mostly the comments of Matty and Navimie of  The Daily Frostwolf. A nasty person called Matty a retard, and I was angry, there is also a priceless comeback from Guarf. “You can’t dispel stupid, sorry.” I wish I were quick witted enough to think of something like that. But as I read the comments, I got a sinking feeling. Navi talked about being yelled at when dpsing, she’s a Druid, like me, except much better.

Druid Multitasking

Okay, is there some expectation out there that while dpsing I’m for ANY REASON going to leave kitty form to enter caster form to cast Remove Corruption while someone’s beating on me? Cause I’m not. Look down there. You will see me like this right here and at the beginning of the group when I buff, that’s it. Okay, if you’re dead and no bad guys are around I’ll bring you back but that’s it. Was I supposed to be doing that? Sorry.

Thank goodness Navimie is too nice to pull my Druid card. I’m thrilled with myself when I remember to change to bear when things get bad, but caster form, no thank you, too squishy. As a Druid I have only once been in a group where EVEN I could feel superior in my druidy knowledge because the tank kept leaving bear form to heal.  Him or herself. Nobody called them a retard though. So anyway … oh dear, if I was supposed to be doing that sorry, my bad.

And then Matty alluded to the fact she had once been called Devil Girl, which made me reflect. About, me. I’m always trying to find parallels between me and other bloggers I like. I don’t know why my mind does this but I just try to stay calm and ride along. It’s like we were all friends on a planet in Iain Banks’ Culture Series and somehow we’ve all been reincarnated here in Azeroth … well yeah … real life too, goes without saying.

Devil Girl Customer Support

For whatever reason this is what came to mind. I used to work at a labor union headquarters. My job was in the department that created training materials. We had created an interactive teaching tool that was distributed to members. It was thought that customer support for this teaching tool would be a nice touch. The job was given to me. I pleaded with them to reconsider. I’m not a people person, really. It’s an incredibly bad idea, I said. Boss had spoken, end of story.

I had my first call. The man wanted to know if his ol’ buddy “one of my bosses” had worked on it. Yes, I said. Good job, he responded, can you transfer me to him? Success! I’d handled that rather well! The very next call was from a very pompous woman. I didn’t care for her tone … at all. The conversation escalated until I lost my usual good cheer. I can’t tell you much of what I said to her, I try to keep this blog at a PG rating for the most part but the expression “Bite Me” was mentioned by me, before ending the conversation with a vigorous thrust of the receiver. She of course called my boss to complain. What happened to me? I was awarded the hat pictured at the top and relieved of customer support duties. I loved those guys. So I can now put customer support experience on my resume if I need to.

Geez, all us bloggers must have been an awesome force to be reckoned with back on planet whatever!

Yes, got to try to focus.

Google’s got some ‘splaining to do

Or it could be me, not sure. Someone on Twitter put up this link so you could see who Google has decided you are. This is who Google thinks I am.

Either Google needs to rethink their methods of deduction or I’m seriously warped. Google you’re batting 0.

Okay, I’ll stop. I have to go anyway. I have to take my Mickey Mouse ears to the cleaners while the “Bite Me” hat sits in its place on the dead cow head. So much to do, so little time.
