The long "golden week" holiday is drawing to a close, but at least I had a bit of luck!

WOW: No sht, there I was ... logged on as a level 27 Shadow Priest. DMF was looking dead, it was supper time on the last day of the holiday. I was peacefully finishing up the fishing quest, when I saw the arena event was about to start. Eh, what the heck ... I wandered over to check it out. Oh, look, an "empty" arena! Gosh, I've never seen anything like that, nope! Imagine my surprise, I don't know if the usual quota of lurking rogues were off having an end of holiday bash, or if they were just too stunned to see a squishy, low level toon saunter in. Loot, win. Smiley: eek

Other than that, I hauled a couple of characters through LFR's version of SoO. I suppose that counts as progress towards the Legendary. I pushed my old Mage further than I've ever managed (all the way to level 50 since he is my Tailor/Enchanter and needed to move those along) and indulged in an alternate reality in which I did not clean up a certain black dragon egg. Smiley: nod <bleep> you and your quests, Sunny Side Up! I had moderate success gearing up; however, my Warlock seems to be overly distracted by his succubi ... he can't get any pants to drop.

RL: I over indulged in skewers of lamb. I also over indulged at the large, wholesale market up the road from me. There are a growing number of "Western" restaurants in Beijing nowadays, and a couple of the shops there carry stuff for them. I'm lighter in the wallet, but stocked up on "exotic" stuff like pasta, cheese, capers, anchovies, olives, etc. That's not to say that I didn't indulge in a few Chinese goods, I got another quart jar of minced Hainan Yellow Lantern peppers (akin to habanero), a forearm sized chunk of farm style bacon that was smoked to black, and a large bundle of rather potent Szechuan sausages. I also stocked up on German wine and beer to greet the Tyger when she gets back in a couple of days.

Yay! I'll call this one a success. Now, let's hear how things went for you!
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?

Did not post any goals but anyway... Smiley: smile

Ran some raids/instances for mounts and legendaries, as usual. Did not get any mounts, as usual. Made some nice progress on Val'anyr though. Have 29/30 fragments now and Yogg still up so I'll finish the collection this ID. Also made some progress on the last stage of the FL legendary and finally got the last missing achievement in there.

My guild raid cleared SoO until and including Dark Shamans so we have the entirety of tomorrow evening for our Nazgrim tries. Also got some upgrades. New trinket + new weapon should make a noticeable difference.

Real life:
I went out Friday and Saturday to attend to two different birthdays. I was not doing any sports the whole weekend because hangover. Must have gained 2 or 3 kilos but thankfully they should be gone in a few days if I stay strong (and away from sweets) and do my daily routine of exercises

Sunday was trip to huge thrift trading post and taking the remaining stragglers from friday home, worked on my business a little bit.

I took Friday off work sick, I had a cold...really I did, and spent most of the weekend playing WoW as I wasn't motivated to do much else. A common theme with this stupid "game".

Only 3 more Titan objects to acquire for the legendary cloak on my hunter. They have been few and far between getting those to drop on LFR.
My raiding has consisted solely on LFR, as my guild is all eastern and I am pacific, but Sunday they needed a body and things worked out quite well, downing 3/4 in the first part of Siege of Orgrimmar 10 man. Even picked up a new crossbow upgrade.

Worked on my Shaman quite a bit as well. He had some pretty poor gear, but loaded him up with the Timeless stuff and promptly got my *** handed to me by anything and everything on that new island. Move or die indeed! Those stupid sprites and that Sun flare moonfire thing they do...and they spam it!
I was quite unimpressed with enhancement, and respecced to elemental which I think I like. Way less buttons! I did all the tier 14 LFR and thought I was doing quite well untill I looked at my recount, something like 16k dps average for ilevel 470ish. But still enjoying it more than melee. I really wish they would make shamans auto attack though after casting a shock spell.

Late posting, but I didn't have time yesterday...

WoW - Other than DMF, I didn't get much done. RL intervened and I didn't play much. Oh well, as I said on Friday, I'm not pushing goals too hard these days anyway.

RL - Got a bit done, including re-wiring 17 outlets in the new house. I'm not sure how previous occupants managed to break and/or damage that many outlets, but they're fixed now.

I was planning on playing WoW on Sunday afternoon, but a friend invited me over for an impromptu gathering, so WoW got displaced. Had a good time and ate too much.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.
