Hmmm, maybe it's a good thing one wakes up before the alarm clock, if one happens to forget to turn it on the night before. *innocent look* Just sayin'.

Not sure why I keep finding reasons NOT to level my main. First it was trying to finish getting Loremaster of Kalimdor (gave that up Friday)

Then it was a Death Knight that needed to get out of the noob land. That took a lot of Saturday. Afterward, I spent some time on my main in Northred.

Sunday, I up and decided that I needed to drop Tailoring to take back Herbalism (to go with Alchemy, you understand. All those new herbs to pick!)



Totally forgot to make new bags for the DK first. Or that I didn't actually have back-up boots for those Frozenshadow Weave boots I had been wearing for so long. Ooops

But I got Herbalism from 1 to 375 in one day.

Ought to get back to that leveling thing.

I really haven't gotten far in Northrend, but what I have seen has been interesting.

I think the most 'golly gosh wow' moment would be reading the walsus-man's quest text about 'the mist' and looking at the empty beach and thinking 'what mist?'

Then running pell mell down the to the beach (like the idiot we players all are).

White starts to iris down on my screen. Panic! Pull back! White recedes.

Think a momnet and run (more cautiously) back down. White irises down again, but leaves a large oval still visible. Okay, cool.

There are things here that were not visible before the white. I ran over an invisible barrier. Too cool!

Better yet? Those things can't chase you over the barrier. Wahahahahahahah.

The new major cities that are actually instances that change with your quest state are a bit of a pain, since there aren't maps of them, and even if there were, there would be no way to track yourself or anyone else in them. :( I really can't imagine trying to navigate any of the capitals without the maps.

So, I am reading along about Self Emulsifying Drug Delivery Systems (SEDDS) and see a statement about testing in minipigs.

I stop.

I blink a bit and reread that a couple times.

I hit Google.

Indeed, minipigs
