Christmas vacation was nice. But I need another vacation to recover from that one. So does Wulfa. She's been haulin' butt to get to lvl 39 and now she has to stay there. Dammy wants to get a mount at the same time and he's only lvl 33. I understand. It would be hard to hear your mate crow about her new wolfie when you still have several lvl's to go before you get yours. But Dammy wants 500 gold by the time he reaches lvl 39. No problem, but exactly how am I supposed to contribute when I can't get any xp? Run Wailing Caverns over and over again. The greens that drop Zujoo can disenchant. Anything higher than that and he has a bit of trouble getting the soul dust etc. that sells so nicely on the AH. And the light leather does add up eventually. 120 light leathers=30medium leather=6 heavy leather=1 thick leather. But I decided that it would be better to just play an alt while Dammy catches up. So I rolled a Blood Elf paladin. She's pretty and dainty and light as a feather. (We don't mention that in front of 'Wulfa. She might get jealous.) I really like the Blood Elf starting area. Probably because it's new (I got Burning Crusade for Christmas :). But I'm finding it difficult to adjust from hunter to pally. I can't rush into an area rife with mobs and expect to get out alive (although being able to heal myself is awesome). It takes soooo long to kill things compared to my hunter. Granted, little Faerylyss is only lvl 9. We haven't even started on the talent tree yet. And that's another ball of wax-which path do I take? It was overwhelming researching hunters and how best to play them. Do I really want to start over and delve into the paladin world? On the plus side it's really cool to buff other players. If you're not a character that can buff and you see one that can, don't run zigzag and jump up and down and do other weird stuff. They might be trying to buff you and if you persist in butterfly behavior they can't click on you (I just had a bright thought: I bet there's a way to target the nearest friendly person. Sigh at self. I should have thought of that sooner).
Little Orclette has spotted the laptop and has decided that it's her toy. She also thinks that wires are the coolest thing ever and that my brother's XBox 360 is shiny-and-she-wants-it-now!!!-cry when mommy pulls her away. Shoes are great to chew on (shudder when I think of where they've been). Have I mentioned that little Orclette can crawl now? Life will never be the same :)
