So, we tried running the revamped Ony 25 after midnight with a randomly pulled together group of guildmates and that went about as well as could be expected. The big adds during Phase 2 killed us after we got Onyxia back on the ground.

At least none of us died to Deep Breaths!

Also, I forgot I had been trying to level my one-handed maces, and so I had a crappy crappy one handed mace as my weapon instead of my two handed Staff of the Sorrowful Chieftan. Ooops.

1) ran heroic TOC 5 man. Learned that I am not really a good raider at all. Or...well. A good player. Things get confusing, I rarely know which way I am facing, and then there is a large repair bill at the end because I don't recognize "the green stuff" when I am standing in it.

2) loremaster is a pain in the ass to get.

3) we almost did For the Horde, except the raid leader failed at recruiting healers and then didn't listen when the 4-5 people who'd done the raid before recommended starting anywhere but Darnassus and Exodar. Whatever. I'll get my black war bear eventually.

4) I'm really amazingly terrible at being a kitty druid. Sadly, boomkin/casters in general bore me, I find being a tank amazingly dull, and healing also seems to be beyond me. Possibly I should just l2play.

5) Grunty, the murloc marine, and the zergling pet will fight if they are near each other. Awesome or AWESOMEST?

in unrelated news, DEAR POTC4, YOU ARE ALREADY DEAD TO ME.

in not really related but somewhat amusing news, I like my new SC2 icon:

the last of the five things!

so...hey, where's the:

seaquest dsv: miguel ortiz fic? or tim o'neill? or the miguel/tim?

jeremiah: kurdy fic? come on now, please tell me there's epic amounts of kurdy fic. esp. w/jeremiah. I know there's vids, but this show is amazing. Postapocalypse! road trip! snark! banter! [livejournal.com profile] annavtree, you would love it!

just fyi: if you have an xbox and a netflix subscription, you can do instant streaming via xbox live and it is AMAZING.

also! recommendations wanted for shows that one can watch while doing something else. So far Seaquest has been a win and Jeremiah is also a win, but Xena failed utterly as iit was remembered more fondly than accurately.

my drood is 74 and running around dragonblight.

So come then, you heroes! Come in all your power and glory! For in the final hour, all must serve the one true king.


...and then I get to keep leveling my drood.

One of my coworkers has a hunter alt named Sthompson. His pet's name is Gonzo.

I laughed and laughed.

There's a whole thread about best names ever on the forums (general discussion), and my favorite from there is a hunter named Schrodinger, with a pet cat.

I has a bag of holding for my laptop now. It is ginormous AND nerdy.

I told my coworker that I wanted to roll a warlock named Tesla (sadly, it is taken), just so I could use deathcoil. I may still try do it, because that makes me snicker a lot.

My druid's name is Andreia (courage) which is not obviously nerdy, but which is one of the four cardinal virtues of the stoic philosophy. I doubt I'll be able to snag Sophia (wisdom) as a name, but I'm pretty sure I can get Dikaiosyne (justice, for a pally) and Sophrosyne (temperance, probably for a priest).

Also a polar bear mount with a murloc. WIN. I still have my murloc suit key from last Blizzcon.

So...that Arthas is kind of a tool, yeah? I mean, I don't even disagree with the culling of Stratholme (that's the part of the human campaign I'm on now, and, you know, better dead and not killing your fellow villagers than undead and under the command of Mal'ganis), but damn, he's kind of a dick.

on request, I am rolling a new character on BDF. It is, once again, a Tauren. Because I like the Taurens best. I just felt like informing you all.

a series of cracktastic AU shapeshifter + psychic romance novels with people of color! who knew? (Slave to Sensation has the romantic female lead as being Japanese/Slavic/Anglo-Indian and uh, so far my brilliant attention to detail has picked up on the male romantic lead in Mine to Possess as having "dark skin." The cover for this one lies with the white dude on the cover. By Nalini Singh, with thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vissy for pointing it out.) I'm not saying they're not problematic 'cause um. Yeah. But hot damn, male *and* female lead of color. Awesomesauce.

The new vampire assassins for the CIA book is out! woot!

I was telling [livejournal.com profile] thelionforreal about the Mary Sue Queen of the Moon Vampires books earlier today. Man, those are brilliantly entertaining because seriously. SERIOUSLY. Mary Sue Queen of the Moon Vampires! How is that not made of awesome?

I feel more people should read the book with Pete Wentz on the cover. Blind former-princess assassins! Soul sucked lesbian piercing artists! Travels to another dimension/plane of reality/drugs! WTF all over the place!

Keep your good books. I've got moon vampires and psychic wereleopards and a preternatural covert ops team that likes to blow shit up.

Serious conversations I had today:
dude: "So how's that scorpion killing going?"
me: "Fuck! I can't find it."
dude 2: "It's on the map! I told you where it was!"
me: "I know where it is on the map. I don't know where *I* am on the map."
dude: "You go like, that way." [gestures IRL]
dude 3: "OH THAT SCORPION. I totally know where that is. He's like up on a hill, isn't he?"
me: "Fuck you all. I found the Barrens."
dude: "How did you find that? You're not supposed to be there yet."
me: "I don't know. There was a mountain, I jumped, it told me I found the Barrens."
dude 2: "Okay, we're totally going to help you find the scorpion so you can kill it."
me: "That scorpion can go fuck itself. Then I have to go to the cave and find an axe. That guy can go fuck himself too."

[later, while looking at my map]
dude: "How the fuck did you find that place? You must have swum forever."
me: "No, there was another mountain and I jumped and then there was like, a hole in it or something, and then there was a river or something and it told me I found it."
dude: "I don't think that's possible."
me: "Well CLEARLY IT IS."
dude: "Where the hell were you *going*?"
me: "That one guy said to go west! So I did!"
dude: "But this is east. What? How...what? The guy is like RIGHT THERE."

[still later]
dude: "No, no, get that skill. It's awesome." [points to backstabbing]
me: "What does it do?"
dude: "...it stabs people in the back, Sheila."
me: "You know what."
dude: "No, it's awesome, you can totally shank people and then they die."
me: "I like that."
dude: "I know you do."

me: "Are we going to kill that boar?"
dude: "Yes."
dude 2: "Put your hand back on WASD."
me: "I don't like it, though. I'm not great with my left hand."
dude: "You'll appreciate it later when you're fucking people up. Plus, you can strafe. Ooh, no, sneak up on that one and punch it in the head."
me: "FUCK."
dude 2: "Yeah, backstabbing only works on their backs."
me: "Strafe? What? Do I get a gun?"
dude: "Only if you're a dwarf."
dude 2: "Really, you're more like a ninja."
dude: "A ninja who really sucks at sneaking up on people."

zomg cobra starship tomorrow yay!

hey, so, Diablo. That game is not right, you guys. It *freaked my shit out*.

...also I suck at it.

(my computer at home will not run WoW, so I am playing the *other* games my company makes and I figured I'd start with Diablo, since the battlechest for Diablo comes with Diablo, Diablo II, and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and because uh. I dunno. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Warcraft III and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne look like they require some planning. Ditto Starcraft and the Starcraft expansion. Which is, I suppose, what you get with RTS games. REGARDLESS, I suck.

Also, Diablo is point and click to move? Really? That seems...somewhat less than intuitive.)

So, let's see what else is going on in my exciting dork life. I had a whole conversation today with someone about the Death Knight hero class that's coming up in Wrath of the Lich King. It was very detailed and she kept asking things like, "So, is it something where you have to make a new character of that class or is it something where it can be added onto an existing class?" and my entire response was, "Um. It's...a tank class?" Though I could confidently answer the question of whether it was Alliance or Horde specific (both. death knight = wants to kick arthas' ass.)

Anyway, so I start playing WoW and the first quest is lame like, "Go meet your teacher." Except I failed utterly at finding the teacher dude and went to the next town and got killed by a crab. A winner is me. So we shall see what happens tomorrow. I'm going to make another stab at finding the dude who is supposed to teach me how to suck less.


There are so many buttons! and. things! I don't know what to do with it all! But if my wee nephew can make it past level 1, so can I.

Hah. Successfully created a character after the following conversation with my coworkers:

me: "okay, so what do I make?"
boy1: "what do you want to do?"
me: "um."
boy1: "what are you good at?"
me: "...um."
boy1: "okay, if you could choose between protecting people, healing people, or punching them in the face, what would you choose?"
me: "oh! that's easy! punching them in the face!"
boy1: "okay, so a rogue."
me: "okay!"
boy2: "it's not so much punching in the face as it is punching them in the back of the head and killing them while they're down."
me: "but there's definitely punching, right?"
boy2: "...yes."
me: "awesome!"
boy2: "so, now what race do you want?"
me: "there's one with raptors right?"
boy1: "yes."
me: "do they eat people's faces?"
boy2: "you ride them."
me: "but they are raptors."
boy1: "yes."
me: "sign me up!"

so, I uh. fired up wow on the work computer, chose Proudmoore, clicked "create new character" aaaaaaand immediately went, "meep!" and clicked back out because I had no idea what to create.

I will say that I was noodling around with a troll. Uh. Girl. ? I liked them. They were blue.

...the undead were kinda hot, though.
