How was your weekend?
Now that you mention it ... I thought I'd take a walk in the rain and get cat food. It turned out to be a slightly damper experience than I'd anticipated
WOW: I'll skip to the end of the story. It has been interesting to dust off my old, original characters. It has also been mildly disheartening because I'd just begun to get my current (Guangdong) characters ready for MoP. I don't want to drop that work and can't transfer them to the Beijing server -- those accounts are filled and I don't want to delete the characters that are there.
As a further complication, I joined a level 14 guild which was bulk recruiting to level up. No problem, they help me and I help them, but there isn't any strong bond. Sunday night, I was on the new DK in Terrokar and got a whisper. I hit my usual "Oops! Sorry, I'm a foreign player and can't read Chinese." After chatting a bit, they wanted to invite me to join their guild instead. They're friendly, helpful and have the same end of expansion boredom we all face, which makes me something of an amusing distraction. Sigh. I really didn't plan on another DK main, nor was I planning on making an extended return to a server that is full of old memories. Oh, well, I guess things will sort out when MoP hits. For all I know, the Guangdong servers will continue to run at 1K+ latency (I suspect the Great Firewall is having growing pains) and I'll be glad to be in a good guild Beijing side.
Oh, yeah! Goals! I got the DK to 65 (4 levels), my old Horde main to 72 (2 levels) and lost track of my old Alliance main's progress (but I think it was around 6 levels and he's close to hitting Outland). I also made myself bring some order to my banking across both factions and that was a mess itself. I think I'll hold on to that extra Deviant Scale Belt recipe until MoP hits.
RL: The cat (usually known as the Demon Beast) doesn't know how lucky he is that I'm a sucker for felines. Aside from my stroll in the rain, things were quiet. Bun-Bun did make a quick visit on Sunday and showed me that her cuts were less of a mess than they looked in the picture she sent. The rain had minimal impact on me since I live on the 9th floor. I had some leaking around the windows since they were on the upwind side of the storm, but it is a newer complex and things are generally in decent shape. Rain in my district was strong, but not as severe as some areas experienced.
