Monday morning here in Beijing, here's hoping that you've all had a good weekend!

WOW: Sometimes, it isn't just song lyrics that get misheard. Am I the only one who hears: "These dark halls have not seen footballs for many years"? Yes, I spent too much time running my Warrior, Druid and Monk through LFR and LFD. PUGs are PUGS, but I had a decent time and got at least a handful of upgrades.

RL: Spring is here and people seem to have recovered from overspending during Spring Festival. Pink is about to reopen her health and beauty place in a better location and is wiped out from getting it redecorated. She still took time to have dinner with me on Sunday and later she, her older sister and I went out for tui na. It was a pleasant evening.

I'm old and boring, surely you young guys must have better tales of adventure. Let's hear them!

WoW:

- Finished a few achievements. Not many but I'm really happy to finally be done with this and that one.
- Got me two upgrades for my shoulder slot and for my waist slot. The waist-piece is Thunderforged too.
- Made a tiny amount of gold.

RL:

Nothing happened on Friday. Went to the gym on Saturday and did some partying with friends in the subsequent evening and night. That was about it.

Managed to get more playing in than I thought I would! Hit 88 on my mage, finished most of Vot4W and got into Kun'Lai. Tackling rares on my mage is fun and different compared to doing so on my mage; it's a much more mobile fight, but it's also quicker (or feels quicker at least!), even before level 90. I also tend to come much closer to death Smiley: tongue

Oh, forgot the RL portion...

Girlfriend's graduation was fine. This is the fourth college graduation I've been to (including mine), and they're all pretty silly, IMO. I had been to another one at UF a couple years back and this one seemed much more crowded... which makes sense, as it was for the college of liberal arts and sciences (the last one was for physical therapy, I think). My girlfriend was in one of the first rows called up, so after I had about 90 minutes of just sitting around, waiting for it to end. I was a little disappointed in her family; her parents showed up about half an hour late, thus missing her walk, and left the ceremony early. While I think the whole pompous affair was... well, just a bunch of pomp, I still was happy to show up 40 minutes early and stay through the end; I was really proud of my girlfriend. Ah well, perhaps I'm overly critical; she didn't realize they weren't there until later that night, and sorta brushed it off.

After the ceremony we went to her house in Jacksonville, driving through INSANE weather (the streets were flooding in several places as we got near), and had a fun (and delicious!) party. Ah, Filipino food!! I spent most of the time there chatting with her cousin's husband, who is a couple of years older than me, and an actual rocket scientist (degree in astrophysics, who just got an MBA). Pretty fun guy; was refreshing to talk to someone so educated; we discussed politics, religion, economics, and sci-fi. Came away with a good book suggestion about Wall Street insider trading in the 1980s (Nabisco, in particular, I think?) called "Barbarians at the Gate." Need to look that up... anyway, it was refreshing because my girlfriend's immediate family is very VERY conservative Southern Baptist, so most of the conversations end up being about God and the Bible, etc.

After the party we went to her cousin's house and watched Lincoln. Pretty good, liked it better than Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Was a late night, but a lazy morning. Started the drive back around 1:30, and I officially hate my GPS, because it took me on a route that I've pretty sure was a good 30-40 miles longer than it needed to be. In general I estimate the return trip should be 3 to 3 1/2 hours back; I didn't get home until after 6:00, meaning it took 4 1/2 to 5 hours. Eeesh. Drank way too much last night for Cinco de Mayo (tequila, you win again), and I was hungover all morning. I can't party like I could in my early 20s any more Smiley: lol Proud that I didn't call in sick, but man, I was useless this morning. Luckily, classes just ended here and I haven't had much work all day. If I had to have picked a good day to be under the weather, it was today Smiley: grin

I capped my Valor on my main on Friday so I focused Saturday on my Hunter and his Valor was capped by Monday. I love the VP boost buff you get to your account after capping on one for the week. I think I got to about 600 for the week on my Pally too. My Hunter went from ilevel 468 to ilevel 476 on Saturday with some good LFR drops. I still need a weapon upgrade though. I ran Firelands on Sat night on my main and collected some embers for the quest. I think I'm at 16 now so it will take at least 2 more runs for me to get to the next step.

On Sunday I ran most of the alts through the monthlies on Darkmoon Island. I even got some of the new stuff from the prize containers though getting a +exp item on my character who has his experience turned off was a bit annoying. One of my alts got the fishing hat too. I didn't feel much like LFRs after Saturday's run of 4 so I spent my extra time working on some sub-90 alts for a change. I got a little bit into Kun-Lai on my other enh Shaman and I put a couple of levels onto a lower elem Shaman in Outland getting him from 66 to 68. I couldn't believe how easily I was killing mobs in Nagrand on him.

As for real life, on Sunday we went out to my Sister's house for dinner and had a good time. I spent a little time visiting with my Mom who had been in the hospital for a few days last week due to a bad tooth infection. She seemed to be doing pretty well.

RL - Taking friend down to Florida to visit family. So little WoW time for me.

WoW - I might run some dungeons tonight. It is my only night for gaming this weekend so nothing planned really.


Was a fun trip to Florida. Did manage to get rid of all my green gear and sitting at a comfortable 468 iLevel at the moment. Give me a week or two and I will be able to run ToT.
