After spending all day in totally redundant (but FDA-required)… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

After spending all day in totally redundant (but FDA-required) training, I was in no mood for company last night, so I skipped Costume meet up. Sorry. You really didn't want me there being snappish, anyway.


I did play WoW, but my guild heard less from me than usual. The two 'take out named mobs together, rather than competing with each other for them' PUGs worked out well, but required very little actual communication. It is such a joy to play with people that know what they are doing.


I am totally miffed that the cooking recipes I want/need are only available by doing cooking dailies in Dalaran... since I can't officially GET to Dalaran for several more levels. :( These uncooked fish are going to start to smell soon, I am sure.

I love having Herbalism back. I had been suppressing how much I missed it.


I have been listening to The Water Room on the commute and have been enjoying it, for all I can't quite figure out where things are going. But one comment made me stop listening for a bit, in sheer wonderment. The main character (the whole thing is set in London) muses on the fact that he hadn't taken a Holiday longer than a fortnight since he was 14. ... As far as I know, Americans almost NEVER take a holiday longer than a week (must less two) unless they are recovering from a medical procedure. I know I never have. And, what is a Gap (or GAP) year, anyway?



Today is the company's Thansgivnig meal. I am telling myself over and over that the $6 is just the company's way of ensuring correct RSVP, not the actual cost of the meal per person. Because the alternative is just too insulting.




Required SoP reading around here is so damn fluid right now. An SoP that was required a month ago can fall off the list and one that wasn't even mentioned as 'optional' can be required at the drop of a hat.

And they wonder why we can't keep our required reading current.

A Gap Year is a year that you take off between high school and going to University. Usually meant to do some sort of work experience, travel etc, and there are actual programs in which to do it formally. Often ends up being the year that begins a career and f*ck-all to University. ;)

Thank you. Is traveling a pretty typical Gap Year activity?

I am not understanding. There are several recipes that are quest reward only, even in the Burning Crusade expansion.

I'm a bit miffed at my guild atm. They are not raiding *anything* anymore. They are only lvling to 80.

My other lower lvl guilds are also very self absorbed. Not really happy with WoW atm.

Part of it is I cannot seem to decide what I want more. Do I want an 80 or do I want to play with my new DK?

Do I want to get my 64 Shammy up or just work on getting one of my 70s up?

Choices choices. Can't decide.

My guild isn't raiding either, but concentrating on leveling (whether that means leveling our old main, a new main, or a new DK is up to each member). We, of course, looks first in-guild for the 5-mans before resorting to PuGs.

I started a DK, but totally lost steam once out of the new content. Shocking. :p

I am still on the fence with DKs. I don't know why they felt it was necessary to start them at 55. I am a bit dissapointed in the way we can gear them. You do all those quests to get out of the starter instance, get some sweet looking gear, then you go out and get.... Greens? WTF?

Plus, most of the quest rewards/dungeon gear you can get does not have stats that match what you need for a DK.

Plus, I still haven't figured out what each talent tree is. I know Frost is tank but I get conflicting views of Blood vs. Unholy.

Some say Blood is DPS, others say Unholy is. Some say Unholy is like a hunter. I'm not sure which I like or how to play each.

Yeah, the talent trees for the DKs have me totally scratching my head.
