Thank God it's Monday. What's that you say? I'm not supposed to be happy it's Monday? Well too **** bad! After the day I had yesterday I'd be glad if today were December 21, 2012 and the Mayans were right.

Anyway, as expected I got very limited time in to play games. I did take my son bowling on Friday. He's 3 and he had a blast. I'm seriously considering doing a bowling party for his 4th birthday, although that's a long way away. Also took the tiny terror for his 3 year check-up and the doc said he's doing great. This is a long week for me as my Saturday on the rotation is this Saturday, but at can't be any worse than yesterday.

Woke up to my dog having thrown up all over the condo. Later in the day, I was doing laundry, when the heating element on my drier decided to go out. Let me just say, it's not fun trying to bring a massive basket of wet clothes AND a half-asleep 3 yr old to a laundromat. He actually settled down when I plopped him in a chair with a bag of Cheetohs. I think he thought all of the washing machines were TVs.

Anyway, how did you guys do on your goals?

I did indeed meet my goal of having my last character on 85; now all of our characters are fully leveled until Pandaria goes Live; we plan on doing a panda or two and then obviously each 85 will need leveled to 90. lol. Gotta do something to keep us playing, eh?

Anyways, that was completed Sat. Afternoon, took way longer than I had anticipated, for some reason, Horde Twilight Highlands always seems slower than Alliance, I got alll the way to Crushblow before I got to 2 bars from dinging, then I went to Uldum and finished that on getting his skinning to 525 (picking herbs while doing that).

I didn't get any time for WD episodes, but I did play a bunch of FO:NV.

Otherwise, I worked Sun. until 5pm... and now I got the rest of today off and all of tomorrow off... I can't think of a single thing to do in WoW, other than try to get myself motivated enough to do some dailies to catch the Alliance guild up (it is 8% behind the Horde one).

-Did all my old raids earlier this week so I don't have to worry about them. Doing LFR is still a quick means to get a headache. Between people wiping on fights like Morchok and hunters in reg DS gear needing on LFR loot it makes me very upset. It's my loot damnit stop rolling on it! Smiley: mad
-Rant aside I am probably going to get my Outland loremaster done. Anything else is icing on the cake.

Outland done. Got Eastern Kingdom done also. Started working on Kalimdor, which is going to make me wanna punch babies before I am done.

-I did quite a bit of house work this week so the only thing on my plate is to do a bit of yard work. Suppose to be around 90 this weekend so it isn't going to be the scorcher that it was last weekend (or was it the weekend before last, I can't remember...).

Rained quite a bit this weekend so I didn't get much yard work done. Will get to it sometime this week, can't be ***** to do it tonight.

Well, one thing that I'm not doing is farming for the Arcanite Reaper plans because I got them last weekend - and I'm still excitedly happy over that.

I'm slowly farming Ravenholdt rep on my main. I got him up to almost revered with kills and now I'm just farming and turning in junkboxes at a rate of about 40 a day. That is two farming runs of LBRS on my Rogue and is about the most I can stand without falling asleep at the computer (or at least my hands not falling asleep). I have also be starting to work on leveling alts a bit again though I still try to spend some time farming for some gear here and there too. I was excited to get a particular green quality boe drop last night for a 'set' I'm trying to put together for my female Shaman. Of course most of the pieces are all high 50s classic drops so they can only be found in a few select places anymore. I guess I should try to go dual box an MC or AQ20 clear soon.

I'm still working on the Ravenholdt rep - slowly but surely. I'm nearing the halfway through revered point. I did a few MC runs and an AQ20 run to try to collect some more useful (or sellable) greens. I got Garr's binding on my Pally which is cool but that means that now my Warrior has one binding (Geddon's) and my Pally has one binding (Garr's) so I'm still not actually any closer to finishing a Thunderfury. I did pick up an engineering schematic for my Druid in MC though so that was good. I'm thinking I need to take inventory again to see what character's need which tier items (if any) from MC. I also need to do some research to find some more cool weapons for my DK to farm and some more interesting shields for transmog for my Warrior. I actually tanked a couple of normal dungeons on her this weekend and I didn't do too badly. It would help if I knew the dungeons better, of course. :P

I'm still recovering from that surgery a couple of weeks ago but I am going to have to start getting ready to go back to work on Wed of next week. Bleh I still have a drain tube in that should be coming out on Monday. I really hate that thing. I probably won't do the family visit because of it and how it makes it hard to dress normal and because of the soreness. It's not that I can't deal with family but more that I can't deal with the hour+ drive out there and then another hour+ to get back home.

I got the drain tube taken out this morning and I'm feeling a lot more able to be out and about. I'm still sore but the pain from the tube shifting is totally gone. :)

Didn't play a lot, but did get my druid to 85. Now the gear grind starts. Also started a new paladin. Several members of the guild who have always soloed and never had the chance to play with low level groups decided to put the cart before the horse and start new toons for the experience. I don't expect it to be exactly the same experience since we're all regular members of a weekly 10 man raid team, but we've got a pretty close knit guild so it should be a good experience.
A shot in the back saves nine.

WOW: Latency has been horrible. I'm going to give Leatrix Latency Fix a try and hope for the best. If I can get latency down below 1200 (and often several times that), I'll try to work on the regular stable of toons. If I can't ... sigh... looks like a vacation on a different server.

Latency was horrible, but I did manage to nibble away enough time to get Igor to Deepholm. For most of the weekend, I played around on long mothballed toons, the old Alliance toons I played when my daughter was too busy for us to play our regular characters. Those guys had been leveled during Vanilla, with a couple of low level alts added at the start of TBC. It was hard to get into at first, but I fell back on my usual "new server" routine and started a DK so that I could begin to get glyphs for them. My old main was a Warlock with Herbalism and Alchemy, so I had a ton of herbs banked -- enough that the DK is at 245 Inscription. It has been mildly amusing, I wonder if I can find a buyer for that Pristine Hide of the Beast.

RL: Bun-Bun is swamped, so I'm on my own for the weekend. The "Three Illegals" campaign and related policy changes continue to be a headache; I think I'll stay home, turn the a/c down, and indulge in a better grade of beer. OK, Kaiserdom isn't craft beer, but it beats the lower tiers of local beer by a long shot.

Well, that was the plan. What actually happened was that the phone system fouled up (perhaps because of the solar flares) and registered my phone as being powered off. I figured that I didn't hear from her because she was busy, she knows I don't leave the phone powered down for more than a few hours at a time. She panicked and rushed over Sunday morning, certain that something had happened to me. After she calmed down and stopped beating me for worrying her, we checked -- my phone seemed normal, but when she called she couldn't reach me. Oops! I rebooted and the problem was fixed. Although I was happy to see her, we could have done without the fright.
In Chinese: glasses are yanjing; eyes are yanjing, and the beer of Beijing is Yanjing. When speaking, the difference is in the tones. Did I just order a glass of beer or a glass of eyes?

Day late and a dollar short, but who's keeping track anyway?

WoW: Got about 6 levels or so on the priest. The prices are really depressed on this new server. Dumping stuff onto the AH (skinning/mining/fishing) isn't working so well, but everything is cheap (gear, glyphs, etc), so I'm not really suffering.

RL: Back from vacation, first one in about 2 years. It was good to get away, see family, spend time with the little ones and what not. Canada was a much fun as ever. There's a lot of sun up there this time of year. Also the pine beetles are getting really bad in places. Kinda sad seeing whole mountainsides of trees disappearing.

Oh, and I also got over my persistent fear of heights long enough to do this:
