RL - Probably going to be a busy weekend. Two work holiday parties to attend, one Friday, one Saturday. Hockey game Friday night, which will put a damper on going to crazy with food at the Friday party. Probably a good thing. It's going to be a late night Friday, so I expect I'll be pretty worthless for half of Saturday. Last minute Christmas stuff to do, of course...wrapping, getting food for Christmas Day, figuring out what I'm going to get for a friend and getting it. Overall, it promises to be hectic.
WoW - I managed to get the Rotten Little Helper on my first try, so I don't have to sweat that for the whole event. My main goal this weekend (and into next week, since I'll have some time off :-) yay!) is to level my 74 druid, 74 pally, and 74 priest. 75 is the immediate goal, so I can level professions, but pushing toward 80 is the bigger goal. Other than that...maybe level some pets, hit Timeless Isle on the DK, and maybe work on a reputation or two in Pandaria. I really need to do the Celestials (?) so I can get those pets, but doing the dailies is just so...blech...so, I'll probably procrastinate that even longer.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy Holidays!
RL - As expected, it turned out to be a busy weekend. Fun though! Work party on Friday was a bit subdued. I had a hockey game that night, so I didn't go crazy with food or beverage. White elephant gifts went over well. The Wax Vac (ear wax vacuum) definitely drew some laughs. Hockey game on Friday night was a close one. We dominated and should have won handily, but had to take it to a shootout to win 5-4. I had a goal, so I'm riding a 2-game scoring streak. Yay!
Saturday party for my wife's company went well, too. They rented the VIP room at a hipster bowling alley downtown. Food was good. Bowling provided something to do, and it was a good time. I'll count today (Monday) as a continuation of the weekend, since I'm off anyway. The wife and I went on a quick roadtrip up to Sedona today. Weather was gorgeous and the scenery fantastic as always. Had lunch at a little hole-in-the-wall place...yummy fajitas...then drove back home. Now for the crazy part of the week starting tomorrow...
WoW - Well, I managed my primary leveling goal, but only just. Druid 74-->75, Priest 74-->75, Pally 74-->76. I could have done more, but I got seriously sidetracked. I was out in Northrend on Friday for a quick look for the Unborn Val'kyr pet. While there, however, I stumbled on the Time-lost Proto-drake. My heart was racing. I was on the 74 pally, so I wasn't sure I would be able to down it. But, I didn't want to take the time to switch toons and travel to Northrend, so I decided to try. Well, it was a pushover and the pally took it down easily. Not sure that would have been possible in the past, but it is now. Anyway, I was stoked. I've been looking for the Time-lost Proto-drake for a long time. Unfortunately, the pally didn't have artisan riding. So, while I was still on a high, I quickly realized I didn't have enough gold for the required artisan riding. Oops. I've spent a lot of money recently on heirlooms and pets, so I didn't even have enough across all 6 of my toons on the server to pay for artisan flying (the price of starting fresh). And the mount isn't BoA, so I couldn't send it to my DK who does have artisan flying. Well, that led to my distraction of the weekend: scrabbling together the money for flying. I hit the AH to sell some ore, but I decided to take another, decidedly inefficient, path...mysterious fortune cards. I thought, what the hell, I'll see if I can hit the lottery. I didn't, but I made a few hundred off the 200 or so cards I made. Time waster? Sure, but screw it. My play style isn't really about maximizing efficiency these days anyway. It was fun seeing if I could get lucky. I finally did get the gold together and bought artisan riding. The T-L P-D isn't the most impressive looking mount ever, but damn it was cool to finally get to take it for a spin.
Oh, and I'll use my extended holiday weekend to try for my original goals of working the druid, priest, and pally toward 80.
Hope everyone else had a great weekend and had the RNG gods smile on them, too!
Happy Holidays Everyone! Edited, Dec 23rd 2013 6:41pm by Azwing
