This weekend has been exhausting. In RL, as Dammy briefly mentioned, we got a new vehicle. I'm proud to announce that I am now a soccer mom. We have a lovely white minivan. Worst part? Dammy loves it and for our next new vehicle (which is hopefully not for many years) wants another minivan. I have to admit it's nice, way nicer than our old one. But I won't wax eloquent on the benefits of it. There is only so much one can take, which I found out this weekend at my lovely bookstore. I bored several fellow employees to tears.
*As an aside we're currently watching Resident Evil 3 simply because we saw the other 2. I don't really like zombie movies, but Milla (sp?) is pretty cool. But they bring in Hitch's concept of flesh-eating birds. Yuckie.
So being a dwarf is interesting. I'm closer to the ground and slightly more ponderous. For the first time ever I have two pets, one in the stable and one with me. I made the mistake of naming the boar. Her name is Scytha.
Dammy has been pushing me to get to 20. I started Friday at lvl 14. As of this writing I'm at 18, halfway to 19. We've been a major contributor to our guild's bank-tab fund, which is awesome. It can be good to come in just when a guild is getting off the ground. We had a very good weekend at the AH, raking in about 20+ gold selling eggs, various meats, and enchanting mats. We were run through the Deadmines by our lovely guild members. I've never been through before. Not my favorite instance.
I've figured out the proper use of wing clip. You clip 'em, then run backwards and fire off a few shots which hopefully will finish the mob off. This saved me several times, the most notable when I sent Scytha off to attack what I thought was a croc a couple levels below me. Turns out it was a lvl 22 croc which, at lvl 17, is sorta hard to kill. But I AM HORDE AND I TRIUMPH! Oh whoops-I'm Alliance. FOR THE ALLIANCE! I still don't view the little hordies running through our areas as enemies . . .
Woot. It seems like such a long time since we've done a proper post, when really it was only a few days ago. But I'm out for now.
I AM DWARF! HEAR ME ROAR! (or rather, belch loudly after quaffing a large quantity of ale and resume singing about gold. It's a rather lovely song, you might have heard it before:
"Gold gold gold
gold gold gold
gold gold gold
and the chorus is even better:
"Gold, gold gold gold
gold gold gold gold.") :)
