Did I mention that I'm a Rat? OK, several of you have suspected something of the sort, but according to the Chinese Zodiac that's what I am.

WOW: In penance, I'm going to have to go to Ironforge, serve haggis to the guards and get schnockered at Brewfest. Nevertheless:

But Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley,

Instead of staying in, I got hauled out several times. The trauma of being exposed to Beijing's air was, however, mitigated by careful application of medicinal alcohol. After completing two books for young children, it was in order.

But, Rhode, what about WOW? Exactly. My DK is still 87. It turned out that I had too much fun going ape on gearing up. I haven't even hit Brewfest yet. I suppose it doesn't hurt that the new quest hub is overrun with tigers.

RL: HuiHui is having way too much fun being Tiger to my Rat. She is going back to Guangdong for a week or so and I'm late posting because I went to see her off. I arrived and found her wearing a tiger striped top and pants with snarling tiger faces on the knees.

tl;dr Booze, pretty girl dressed like tiger, excuse to quote Burns, now drinking odd Mongolian booze and about to head to Pandaria. Close enough to win.

Bring it on!
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?

RL: No plans, but I'll probably conspire to see friends in some way. Today is a workout day for me, and i should probably go jogging sometime this weekend.

Gaming: FFXIV. Haven't played much this week, due in part to being busy after work, and part because they like to have maintenance right when people most want to play. I'm seriously considering never subbing, because it annoys me enough.

I haven't played much of The Last of Us since FFXIV came out. I also want to pick up the KH remix...

RL: Did nothing Sat, went to the gym Sun. Did some shopping (clothes and groceries). That's about it.

Gaming: Played FFXIV until I got really ****** off at the story and burned out. Smiley: lol I might just be done with it for the foreseeable future.

But I picked up the KH remaster. Still on Destiny Islands, so not far in at all. That's about all I did.

- Do all 8 Flexbosses tonight. Some people that I know from a rather hardcore guild are running Flexmode every Friday and they allow friends to tag along. Should go rather fast. Here's to hoping something good will drop. <- Yes. Did get the hand token. Now I'll wait till I can swap out the old 4p bonus for the new 2p.
- Kill the remaining Worldbosses in the hopes of loot from Ordos/Celestials or mounts from Sha/Galleon. Have done all other Worldbosses on my level 90 chars and so far little luck. Got a new ring for my Warrior but I'm not that interested in his gear so the mount would have been nicer. <- Did them. Got nothing aside from some gold.
- Run the remaining raids I do every ID for mountdrops/legendaries. <- Ran DS, FL HC, Mogu and Ulduar sans Yogg. Got some progress on the FL and Ulduar legendaries but no mounts showed. Will do Yogg tonight for another fragment and a shot at Mimirons Head.
- Level my Rogue (87 now). <- He is 88 and has almost 40% done for 89. Then I will start doing the event boss with him too. More on that below.
- Raid with my guild on Sunday. We killed the first 4 bosses last ID and I hope we can get this 4 + some tries on the 5th on Sunday so that we can progress further on our second raidevening on Tuesday. <- Downed the 4 bosses and got two hours of attempts on Galakras. We managed to get past the trash waves a few times but I'm not very optimistic about tomorrows raid. May take us till next ID for him to fall. But I did get a new ring. Warforged even!


- Get some work done for my diploma thesis. <- Little bit.
- On Saturday a friend will come over and we'll play the Lord of the Rings LCG plus Netrunner. Should be fun. <- Played a lot. Talked about music, girls, movies and TV series. All the important stuff, in essence. Was a great day.
- Go to the gym. <- Yep.

What I forgot when I posted my goals was the Brewfest. I still missed both mounts (and the FoS), one pet and one achievement on Friday. I ran Coren Direbrew on both my level 90 characters every day and was lucky enough to get the kodo mount drop (Yay!!) and thus got the Feat of Strength as well. I'll continue doing the boss every day with both my characters plus, hopefully soon, my rogue. As mentioned above he still has a bit of questing to do before he hits 89. I already have ~180 of the 400 tokens I need for the pet and the achievement. So with a bit of luck I'll finish everything associated with the Brewfest this year. Without luck I'll still be chasing the ram mount next year, but that's RNG I guess. Smiley: nod

Edit: Also killed Attumen on my Rogue but, alas, no luck there either.

Gaming - absolutely squat accomplished, played for 15 minutes and gained 1 level on my warrior. Played Minecraft for an hour with the family, that was literally it.

RL - friday was shopping for Halloween decorations. Saturday was shopping for office supplies, halloween, decorations, and clothes. Sunday was gardening, cleaning, and working on my business. Got my site hosted, computer ordered, and letterhead logo designed.

Weekday plans - may or may not game much, have a lot to do. Website design, buying furniture today so will be cleaning out a room and setting up my office, and getting the rest of the house cleaned up.
