At least four subjects. Bloopers, Fire, TG, and.. well, WoW. duh.
First, two Medical Bloopers:

Nov 25 -36, 2006

A visiting psychiatrist from India wrote the following in a patient’s note, “He is clearly psychotic this morning. He states he has a frog in his throat.”

Nov 27, 2006

I took my 5-year-old son to a new pediatrician. He placed my son on the exam table and introduced himself. He then held out his hand, and said, “Let’s shake.”
My son looked at him for a second and then said, “Okay.” He then began to shake is entire body.
The pediatrician laughed so hard. He looked at me, the mother, and stated, “That is why I went into pediatrics!”




There was some excitment here between Friday evening and Saturday morning (or so I am told by a co-worker that was here until Friday evening). Seems someone couldn't use the proper cigarette butt container that was all of 7 feet from the trash can they DID use. And the trash can burned to the ground. All that is left is a puddle of plastic, ash, some aluminum cans and the white powder of the extinguisher. And who ever put the fire out (pretty late, really) had to come all the way upstairs and halfway into the floor I work on to find an extinguisher... the downstairs is being remodelled. Most people on our floor are blaming the contractors for it. Of course, maybe it wasn't a cigarette butt, but if it wasn't, what was it?

Speaking of cigarettes, I smelled cigarette smoke in my apartment this morning and was annoyed. Then I stepped out into the common hallway and very nearly couldn't breathe for the smoke. I don't know who is responsible for it, but I surely don't thank them.


I am proud to say I did not play ANY WoW on Thanksgiving. Played a good bit of Munchkin with the my brothers and cousins, however. And then, on Black Friday, drove the youngest brother (like he couldn't drive himself nowadays) out to Hastings to pick up an expansion set (Unnatural Axe) to play some more. I picked up the first volume of the Trinity Blood manga. Honest, I just meant to make a costume, but I think I am now hooked....


My mother hen instict sure gets a work out in WoW. Somebody asks for directions in General chat, and I know the answer, I will stop what I am doing to answer the question. Someone sends a polite tell asking for help with a quest, I will very likely help, when playing alone. Someone asks about how to get First Aid above 150, I tell them. They wonder how to get to Dustwallow... I offer to go get the books for them. *rolls eyes at self*. The amusing part was bringing the books to her and finding her grouped with the alt of someone that I have helped before (he identified himself as such). It's a small world, for all the people that play.

Indeedy so you are such a mother-hen, though I'm not complaining too hard for getting the first set of FA books for Thrak. Just makes sense there.

Sounds like it was a great holiday. Much awesomeness. Catch you tonight in the big-bad WoW-World. :o)

Me either. Played plenty fri-sun, but was too busy with family to play on a day meant for giving thanks.

*gag* The people a few offices own smoke like chimneys when they go outside to smoke and the wind always blows it right into our offices.

Heh, yeah, I know. Over the weekend I(Gronde 56 warr) escorted a couple of chars through VC/DM, SFK and Gnomer. I also found out that 2 of the chars I was escorting were actually a married couple in Delaware, hehe.

Yeah, I know. Doesn't anyone know how to read a map anymore???

In this person's defense, figuring out how to to get Expert in First Aid, Fishing and Cooking isn't all that easy. Artisan is even worse, but at least you get quests when you finally meet all the requirements.

I know. I have 3 chars that need to get to lev 35 before they can advance. Polarisa's inv is stuffed with fabrics my mains have been sending her and she really, really needs to lev up badly!

Oh, Scorch8 told me a while back about a skinning knife that you can only get as a lev60. Apparently it's an epic knife that you get for a quest, but I haven't been able to find anything out about it.

Ahhh, I have been completely sucked into the world of WoW (hmm, redundant? World of World of Warcraft. Hmm.) octopoid has taken pity on me in my newbieness and has made some players to group with the ones I've created so I can get a feel for the game, but I am adoring it so far. We weren't as good as you on Thanksgiving, but I don't care...I need my fix. *slips into a dreamy tone* Mmmm...WoW...

HAH! She thinks I took pity on her... hell, no. I LOVE making new characters, and she's giving me the excuse to do so.

Mmmm, WoW... DAMMIT!

The early levels really are a lot of fun, aren't they? I have made one of each class the Horde currently has, and am leaving the ninth slot open for when I can make a Horde paladin.

The people across from me used to do that a lot, too. And, on nice evenings, when I wanted to keep the windows open, they would smoke outside. blech.
