I couldn’t let the day go by without wishing a happy birthday to my beloved kitanzi, the best wife, partner, lover and friend that anyone could ever hope to have.
Happy birthday, love. I hope it’s full of magic.
Well, the poll I posted tells me that enough people are interested in me nattering about WoW and most people don’t care as long as I cut tag them, so I’m going to forgo a special filter. I hate making locked posts anyway, unless it’s really something I want to keep to a restricted audience.
So, starting out, we’ll talk about what my low-level alt is doing….
Given that I want to post more often (just to be in the habit) and I spend a fair emount of my time these days playing World of Warcraft, I’m considering adding posts about things happening to and around me in-game to my blogging schedule. I’d never bothered before because I didn’t think anyone would really care, but I have enough people on my friends list who play, now someone who plays, or just find things i write interesting that it might be worth doing. So, a poll:
I apologize for getting so completely lax on the game transcripts, but I do want to keep noting the funny comments, because they’re part of what makes our group so much fun.
Virko after one-shotting a goblin wererat with a quad-damage critical): Be careful. There’s two of them now.
Virko (fighter): We may need to change our tactics, now that we’re encountering lycanthropes instead of zombies.
Gaudi:(priest): I’m a little amused that we keep running into them in a silver mine.
ericcoleman has a poll over his journal about chocolate preference, which reminded me of this amusing conversation I had during Tuesday night’s D&D session.
Someone was offering around some Hersey’s 70% Cocoa dark chocolate squares, and it led to this exchange.
D: I’m a chocolate snob. I’ll only eat dark chocolate.
Me: Not me. I’m a chocolate slut. I prefer dark chocolate, but honestly, milk is fine. With caramel is fine. or crispy rice. or fruits and nuts. It’s all good.
D: Oh no, not me.
Me: I figure chocolate is like sex. Even when it’s bad, iiiiiiit’s still pretty good.
D & J (almost in unison): Oh, that’s not true.
Me: I dunno, I think it is.
D: Besides, I got spoiled by living in Europe for 2 years.
Me: (deadpan) Oh? The sex was that much better in Europe?
It took the party about five minutes to regain enough composure to continue.
Taking text from kitanzi, because I don’t have the wherewithal to write new text *grin*:
Er, yeah, we’re kind of hosting the monthly Gafia filk again this month. (Officially the alternative filk, since the Suttons are kind of hosting – in Indiana. I’m thinking we’ll get more folks attending than they will.) But yes, please do come to make music and fun and friends and more music next Saturday, 4/19, starting about 7 pm. And if anyone wants to host next month, we’ll be glad to show up!
Drop me a comment or an e-mail if you need directions.
The Ironforge Song
by Rob Wynne
TTTO: “The Toronto Song” by Three Dead Trolls In A Baggie
I hate the Great Forge and the Mystic Ward too
The Hall of Explorers and the Tinker Town crew
The roof is too high, the air is too dark
Its covered with lava and there isn’t a park
The men are all drunk and the women won’t wench
and the children are loopy cause they fell in a trench
The water is frozen and the king has no friends
And they wear lift boots and they think they’re Stormwind
In Ironforge, Dun Morogh
“You know, actually I pretty much hate all of Dun Morogh!”
“Oh ya, me too!”
I took a trip to Ironforge to visit Mistina Steelshield
She beat me up and she stole my cloth and she left me in a field
I went to Alterac Valley and was hit in the head by an Orc
I don’t even know how they did it. I mean, I was playing Guitar Hero at the time….
Dun Morogh sucks!
“Yup. Yknow, actually you know now I really think about it, I think I pretty much hate every gosh darn province and territory in the Alliance!”
“Well, except for Westfall”
“Ya, ya I love Westfall”
“It’s very nice, lots of cows and trees and rocks and dirt”
I hate Darnassus cause they look so weird
And Azuremyst Island is too small
Dustwallow Marsh is dumb ’cause its the name of a swamp
Gadgetzan doesn’t have a good mall
Hillsbrad is a warzone and it makes me mad
Dun Morogh sucks! Dun Morogh Sucks!
“Stranglethorn Vale has a population density of 4.9 people per quest objective — isn’t that stupid??”
“And the only good thing about the area of Elwynn Forest is that it’s right next to us”
‘Cause Westfall…..doesn’t suck
But Moonbrook does.
Here’s another song that’s likely to make sense only to my friends who play World of Warcraft. It’s also useful to know the song “The Toronto Song” by Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie. To ease confusion on either of these points, I’ve provided a link to the source tune (thanks, YouTube!) and links to all the things referenced from WoW, courtesy of WoWWiki.
