Overall, they seem to have really reined in the fireworks this year. Things were fairly lively for the arrival of the Year of the Horse, but the constant barrage of explosions is missing. I don't know if it is just the reduced fireworks, or the windy weather, but the air is clear, the sun is bright, and it is time to look back on the first weekend of the Horse!

WoW: I thought it would be a good time to gather up a few more mounts and get Leading the Cavalry. That, in turn, led me to mild frustration with the state of my Horde toons on my current server. I used to play Horde, but when I moved back to this server, it was heavily Alliance and the toons that I transferred over were from a server in Guangdong that had also been pretty much Alliance. That led me to log back on to my old Horde mains from TBC and Wrath. That server went the opposite way, it has a fairly active Horde presence. On my current server, I'm lucky if there are 200-250 items in the AH. On that server, there are 4,000-5000. For a while, I'd thought that I might need to think about replacing some of the weaker Horde toons on my current server by transferring some of the stronger characters, but it would be pointless since the server is so Alliance heavy.

That should have been the end of it, except for the Perky Pug. For Cata, and much of MoP, I let this account rest and focused on my other account. That means the characters on the account that I've been working on are somewhat weak as far as random heroics, since they were the characters that I played in Vanilla and early TBC (we got the extended run on that expansion). Ah, behold, that first DK of mine ran the heck out of random heroics during Wrath (we didn't have WotLK as long) and was sitting at 98/100. OK, what harm is there in queuing for ... ****, we can't queue for random heroics! Wait, I still have tokens in the bank, I can go for the Festival Lantern.

Tl;dr: Achievements distracted me. I did, however, have fun on old toons. Sigh, altoholism. I'll be interested in seeing how changes to realms play out in WoD.

RL: I get to make up for the wall of text above by saying that I stayed home and played WoW. The big new for real life is that Tyger and I passed the dreaded parental inspection that has been the main reason things fell apart with BunBun and Pink. I suspect that it was probably something of a cram down by Tyger, she went into things with the mindset of telling her parents what she was going to do, not asking permission. Yay, Tyger!
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?

As much as I would hate to say it but I fired up the game again. Decided I wanted a dedicated old raid mount farmer so I am leveling a dk. Started mid Saturday and just finished now at 72. Could have gotten her higher if I was able to really focus on the game Sunday but that didn't work out too well. Might push for 80 tomorrow, we will see. A more realistic goal is 76.

Not much. Passed one exam last week but have another one coming up next Friday. So I'll have to prepare for that. Watch a few movies and TV shows in the downtime (plus WoW of course Smiley: smile)

Studied a bit. Watched Thor 2 (good), Dredd (good) and This is the End (awful).

- See if I can attend a ToT HC raid tonight. Still need some kills in there.
- Guild raid on Sunday. Need to catch up with my guild and get those Protectors + Galakras HC kills they scored last ID. An upgrade or two wouldn't hurt either.
- Finally finish up my Wintergrasp meta.
- Level my mage. He's 88 right now.

Found a ToT HC raid but only went from 6/13 to 7/13. Also attended a Terasse HC raid and got the achievements for the first 3 HC kills in there.
On our guild raid we killed all 4 hardmodes my guild had downed before. Not a single piece of gear I could use dropped. But at least I got bonusgold times four! Smiley: mad Did not accomplish much else ingame.

Friday: Work during the day, watch Bad Grandpa tonight, play WoW.

Sat-Sun: No idea. Probably play WoW. I also have to go visit a laundry place, because our washing machine broke last weekend -.-
So I need to find some quarters...
Super Bowl Sunday. Might go hang with some friends, and watch the commercials.

-Bad Grandpa is stupid funny. Had some good laughs.
-Laundry was done! So many quarters.
-Super Bowl? More like good ol fashion *** kicking. I think the seahawks felt bad and actually let them score that one TD.

-Soloed a bunch of old raids, because why not?
-Leveling a Druid and a New Hunter (already have a Hunter, but he is twinked at 84 atm).
- Druid made it to 62 before I stopped to allow other friends who came back to the game to catch up. They are both within 10 level. Then we plan to march around and destroy.
-Hunter is yet anther pvp hunter, but this one will go to cap. He is only 38 I think. He does OK. Prot Warrior are becoming the new Rogues of PvP :3
-Been trying to get Raven Lord mount. I want the ground one before the new Flying one comes out with WoD.
-Actually made gold.

Yet again I missed the friday thread, was out sick. My allergies are terrible this time of year.

Gaming - back to only playing War Thunder, wife hasn't been playing Tera so neither have I. Gained a few levels, shot down quite a few people and won a few battles. All FPS'ers regardless of platform either increase my stress or break even, gotta find something calmer ...

RL - renovating the bathroom ran into a snag. Priming went smooth with only a few runs that were easily fixed. Painted with latex on the wood cabinets and paint ran everywhere .... gotta figure out the spray pressure to make it work better. So the project was delayed 2 days due to feeling defeated. Fixed some other plumbing issues in the house and have to get back to painting. Due to a 2 tone paint scheme by my wife, we are projected to be completed by friday/saturday. Got a lot of painting ahead of us. Other than that it was a anime and War Thunder weekend.

WoW - I'll say I want to get to 87 on my druid, pally, and priest, but it's unlikely to happen. See RL below.

RL - Hockey tonight. First game of the playoffs. It's a double elimination format. My realistic goal is to shoot for a 3rd place finish. There are two teams that simply don't belong in the same league that will most likely be 1st and 2nd. Of course, I'd like to win it all, but I'm not delusional.

I want to continue on my guitar project. I'll have to see about returning or fixing my sander that broke last weekend. I also need to pick up some Dremel bits so I can get the paint off the hard to reach spots in the cavities.

Unfortunately, I am under the gun on a report at work. So, I am likely to spend much of the weekend at work. So, WoW goals are probably not going to be met, and I probably won't have time for the guitar project.

As I anticipated, I got very little done outside of work this weekend. I put in about 20 hours and only managed to finish around 7pm on Sunday. So...

RL - Hockey went well. We pulled off a 5-4 overtime win. One assist for me. On to the second round next week where we'll likely get spanked by the team that beat us 10-3 and 10-4 this season. It's double elimination, though, so we'll still have a chance after that.

I wasn't able to work on my guitar. I did pick up some dremel bits, but I wasn't able to do anything about the sander since it had been a few months since I purchased it and Lowe's wouldn't exchange/refund it.

WoW - I snuck over to DMF on one toon. Played for about 30 minutes. That's all I could swing. /cry

Hope everyone else had a great weekend! (and more fun than me :-))
