Well, at least for some of you it may still be Monday. How did your weekend go?

WOW: I put a push on and made it to 90 on the Worgen DK. I've even made slight progress on gearing him enough to enter LFR without looking like a complete fool.

RL: The discovery of the weekend was that the sidewalk BBQ place near my complex's gate is a fairly nice operation. They have big containers of draft beer cooled by an insert full of ice. It is muggy and unpleasant, so I felt it necessary to support local business for the service they provide the community. Smiley: nod

I needed it. Tyger's grandmother is 89 and in poor health. She may not make it until September, and Tyger is Cantonese. The Cantonese can be very practical and fairly modern, but many of them also follow old traditions. If her grandmother doesn't make it, she won't be allowed to marry for two years.

Now, let's hear some real tales.
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?

Gaming - played for a few hours on friday and got to about paragon 238. No gear upgrades, no alt levels and did not touch D3 the rest of the weekend. Friend wanted me to try out Wildstar - its a meh out of 5. The combat system seemed horrible and I didn't like the feel/cartoony look. Not huge on sci-fi games, prefer my MMO's with shields and beards.

RL - shopping on friday and some R&R. Saturday was finalizing shopping for Father's Day and installing a ceiling fan; was not an easy task but went ok. Sunday was visiting family and lots of driving. Season finale of Game of Thrones was ok, some decent stories for next year to look forward to.

This week will be lots of cleaning and a little video gaming, will see how the ratio's work in my favor.

2 years? That sucks.

Gaming: Wildstar.
RL: Weekend went by to fast. Had a bbq for Father's day. Today at work I started to feel ill. I feel like crap. If i feel like this tomorrow morning, no way am I suffering again. I carpool to work, so I basically had to stay all day -.-

Failed at my WoW goal, but I had a good weekend, so pfft to WoW. :-)

My goal was to reach 89, but I didn't make it over the weekend. I made it by Monday night, though. I'll aim for 90 by next weekend. Shouldn't be too hard...just wish I had some rested XP to speed it along.

Had a busy/good weekend in RL, which played a big role in not accomplishing the WoW goal. Friday night, spontaneous gathering with friends. Hung out by the pool, had a couple beers, listened to old 80s tunes, and did some catching up. Saturday, the wife and I took a little road trip. It was work-related, but we turned it into a lunch trip, so it turned out alright, despite 5.5 hours of driving. Sunday, I had lunch with my dad, then went to a Father's Day party in the afternoon/evening. Good times.

I'm off work this week, so being about as lazy and unproductive as I can manage. I'm sure I'll slip in something productive at some point, but I'm not in any hurry...just wanting to chill.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Enjoy your week.
