Monday is almost over for me, thus it must be more or less Monday for you guys. How did it go?

WOW: Well, my Horde toons needed plate heirlooms, but they needed them to be buffed to work after level 80. I remembered that with about 10 minutes left on DMF but was able to upgrade everything with at least 30 seconds to spare. I let myself get distracted by the DMF pet battle. Thus, Sunday was spent getting toons to Pandaria, so that I can grind pet levels on my other account while also leveling alts. Monday has been spent parked in Mistfall Village, with a Paladin in his 50s, dinging 7% per pet battle. Yay!

RL: Sigh. No Tyger, yet. I wish she would get back, I miss her. Most of the weekend was quiet. I got older. I'm not dead, yet. The most exciting thing that I did was that I stocked up on groceries and got some interesting novelties. Do they still do canned ham in the US? (Or Europe for that matter, since some of you are European) I got an old fashioned canned ham, the sort that has to be opened with a "key" and has the ham packed in aspic. I also got Russian style sausage from Harbin, Sichuan sausage and heavily salted Chinese ham. Hey, it all makes the rice go down easier.

How'd your weekend turn out?
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?

Yes they do in some variety, in my area Hormel makes one that is not too terribly bad.

RL - its going to be hectic and more than likely suck.

It was extremely hectic and really did suck. Friday was finalizing painting till 2am. Saturday was "helping = actually doing it all by yourself," my cousin and grandmother move. She is too old to help and he is too lazy/sorry to do much. So for 5 hours I unloaded a U-Haul .... then installed fixtures in the bathroom, breaking water lines because they are 40 years old and EVERYTHING is soldered together, even if it didn't need it. Sunday was fixing those water lines and doing other much needed water repairs and relaxing some. Watched a little anime and fell asleep on the couch pretty early.

Gaming - played for maybe an hour Friday night and that was the only time I touched a computer, so no real gaming was had.

Week - have to clean up my office and finish putting things together in the bathroom, all the final touches. Wife seems to be getting back into Tera so will probably play some and shoot down some 13 year olds in War Thunder.

Finish SoO lfr on my rogue. At spoils of pandaria. Would have been past that wing but a down net last night screwed up that plan. All I can say is that I am baffled on how poor the lfr community is compared to ToT. Maybe I am getting bad luck when it comes to groups.

Got done with that wing. Still have the last wing to go. Oh glob lfr makes me bang my head against the wall. I love the concept but this community...

To give you an idea of how monumentally stupid some groups are I spent 45 minutes between 3 attempts sitting there while the group argues who is going into what group. First attempt the tank bailed. The tank went awesome and one tanked it like a boss up to the point of the second room where the ret paladin... bloody ret paladins... popped a miniboss crate and proceeded to wipe that side. Second attempt was a cluster f with people popping crates all over the place.

- Work on getting the sweet robot engineering mount plus the sandstone drake. Daily cooldowns for the former and got to farm the pattern for the later.

4 days down 26 to go.

- Possibly work on getting dk a decent weapon. Want to farm lich king meta mounts but if I cannot do it this weekend that is ok. I got it to 90 so that is all that matters.

Ran the first wing of ToT. No luck.

Passed an important exam today (and with a very good grade, too) but celebrations will have to wait till next weekend. This one I'll mostly relax and NOT STUDY. Which is nice.

WoW-wise I hope to get some more ToT HC kills I'm still missing. Continue working on the 10.000 daily achievement and the one for 250 Pet Battle PvP victories with full 25 teams. Also, raid on Sunday. Here's to hoping my guild will down Iron Juggernaut HC.

Went to a Vietnamese restaurant with a few friends on Saturday and spent some time at the gym on Sunday. Other than that I did a whole lot of nothing. Which, as predicted, was nice.

The ToT HC run awarded me with two new HC kills, Durumu and Dark Animus, and we will continue the ID next Saturday. Maybe we'll even clear it. Did some dailies but not many. Won around 40 Pet Battles with full 25 teams. Since I do those on my level 89 Mage it's netting some decent experience too.

The guild raid was not bad. We killed our 4 previous HC kills again and I got two upgrades. So we got the whole of Tuesday to work on Juggernaut.
I started the week with not getting the Love Rocket 4 times and I'm very much looking forward to not getting it 4 times/day until the event ends. Smiley: frown

RL - Hockey game tonight. Second round of the playoffs. Playing the team that beat us 10-3 and 10-4 during the season. Not holding my breath on this one, but I'll give it my best shot. The rest of my weekend is heavily dependent on work. I've knee-deep in some massive edits of a co-worker's less-than-stellar report section. Hopefully, I can get it done so I can have some weekend time. If I do have time, I want to put some work into my guitar project. Also, the in-laws are coming into town in a couple weeks, so some house cleaning is in order.

WoW - Really depends on how much time I have. The main goal is to run toons through DMF. I've been busy this week and have hardly touched WoW. I got my druid through DMF, but will work on getting the remainder through, as well. I may spend some casual time fishing the DMF pools. Easy way to pick up mats, cloth in particular. Otherwise, dabble at getting the 86 druid, pally, and priest toward 87

RL - As expected, we lost. They jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first period. I asked one guy sarcastically if they were going for 20 goals. We managed to pull it to 5-2 in the second period, but they ended winning 7-2. Towards the end of the game, I told the guy that had a hat trick in the first period (you're only allowed 3 goals per game in this league and then you're not allowed to score anymore) "welcome to C League, you fit right in." C league is the lowest level league, and he clearly is not in the right league. Anyway, I had a goal and an assist and was +1, so despite the lopsided score, I could pull at least a little personal satisfaction out of the game. Games like that generally just kind of suck. Not because of losing, per se, but because some people are poor sports about losing (a couple on my team) and winning (some on the other team).

I did manage to get some work done on my guitar. I screwed something up (well, it was already screwed up, so not that big of a deal). I previously epoxy'd the strap button ***** into the body of the guitar because the had been bunged prior to me having the guitar. When I tried to remove it, the ***** snapped. I tried to remove the broken ***** this weekend, but the drill ended up slipping a little and messing up the hole. Oh well, I'll fill it in and move the strap button slightly above the centerline. Probably no one but me will ever notice.

And, as chewed up my Saturday. I put in about 11 hours. But, I finished. I made it a long day so I wouldn't have to deal with in on Sunday.

WoW - really didn't feel it much this weekend, even though I had Sunday mostly open. I played enough to run five toons through the DMF monthlies, but RL just had more pull this weekend.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.
