None of my priests are herbalists. Unless you're speaking euphemistically, in which case... none of my priests are herbalists then either.

England? Just a guess, but I don't think I've heard anyone else on the planet say "cuppa", it's usually "Cup Of"

I say cuppa, too!

Which reminds me, today I told a Danish guy I know that I think talking to him is brilliant. He wasn't sure how to take it and was like "Are you talking British?", and when I told him I though he was a lovely person he asked me if I was being sarcastic, because apparently that is the only way such a word would be used in Denmark. Or Fyn. Or something.

Oh Britain <3.


Anyway, I think it is funny how anyone would deduct from two Danish words that I might be Norwegian. Which gives me reason to have another project in the near future (what with written Norwegian being quite manageable and all that). North, you should add me on Facebook, I always put up random stuff in random languages. Today I put up agudådådaa, and Mazra got insulted because it isn't a word. Then I learned how to say more nasty things in Danish. It is sad that 95% of the Danish I've learned is nasty.

*lighs a cigarette*

The words were Norwegian as well. Danish and Norwegian written language is close enough that it can be interchanged for the most part. The spoken language... not quite so much. And thanks but no thanks on the Facebook thing. I prefer my daily doses of vile evil and hate with slightly less... pastels.

Yeah, I noticed when I was in Denmark, sort of.

I was not sure how far the similarities went (I'm still not), but I like Facebook because I can pester Mazra to teach me a bit of Danish on there, and he is unfortunately the only person who teaches me not so nasty Danish - with my other Danish guys, stuff like hold kæft (you should be able to guess this) is part of the nice, polite things they teach me.

The issue is that no matter whether I want to learn Danish or Norwegian (with the latter making much less sense for me personally at the moment), I can gain no official UK qualification in either. Nor in Swedish. I don't know what is wrong with the British system. You can get college level qualifications in lots of languages I'd never even heard of before getting info on the exams. Just nothing sufficiently Scandinavian, even though that's where all the British people migrate nowadays. I hate this system, occasionally. Most of the time it is brilliant since it has enabled me to do 3 language courses on top of my science studies.

It's better to learn Dutch than to be forced to hear the horrifying accent some Dutch people have when talking English?

As for the other language... what the @#%^ is that anyway?

Actually after looking it up, the numbers make it seem reasonable.

Gujarati has 46 million speakers.
Dutch 22 million.
Danish 6 million and Norwegian 5, so I suppose they have some sort of threshold.

Doesn't mean I like it.


Oh, and Dutch accents are funny. Danish accents are more awesome, though, because they're so strange.

Yup, the Tank Spot girl. I hadn't watched any of her videos before, but when I saw some of the links to her videos on the WoWhead blog and recognized her name, I wondered if it might be her. Then someone asked in guild chat last night and some of the older guild members confirmed that it was in fact her. Then the guy who asked started squeeing a ridiculous amount. It was kind of funny at first, but he wouldn't shut up about it. She probably gets stalked enough by other people, getting stalked by someone in your own guild is a new level of suck.

I don't mind it as a garnish/accompaniment, I eat it in casseroles. But it's more like I simply tolerate its existence, and that tolerance has a limit; in the aforementioned casseroles I get to a point where I just don't even want to look at the broccoli anymore, and I'd imagine that something named "broccoli pie" is going to have the broccoli as the star of the show which means I'd probably be very tired of it after just a few bites.

Give me a good chicken pot pie with broccoli in it anyday, but just 'broccoli pie'? Don't think so.

Broccoli is awesome.

On a completely unrelated note, I just had to manually enter all my qualifications to date into the UCAS website (that's the central university application website for the UK).
To explain, I have 9 formal qualifications that add up to a total of 31 modules which I also had to enter manually.

I now have to repeat all the fun a few more times over the next half year or so. Once for Ireland, once for Sweden, then there's an application to a Dutch university that is not centrally tracked by some agency, and the one for Denmark with a form that doesn't seem to be available in English.


What I don't get is that UK application deadlines are fast approaching while admissions aren't even opened for the other countries where I am applying. At least the Dutch one will open in the next few weeks, though they haven't even specified the date.

Fees at AUC are a bit over 9k a year at the moment. This includes accomodation, webs and insurance, but together with food and such it still puts me at more than 1k a month.

Fees at Roskilde: none. For living costs in Sjælland, there's a few estimates out there, and the highest ones are pretty much exactly the same, while the lowest ones are more around 800 a month.

I just checked the site, it's cheaper than my education by a couple hundred euros a year and I can afford everything with less than €750/month to spend without much issues.


I'm not saying that it's easy to figure out, but that looks doable to me.

I don't think you have to live on campus or something, so there's always cheaper places to live.
Also, I think my expenses would be the same per month if I wasn't Dutch. I just wouldn't get that amount of money per month from the government with as little of it as a loan.

Edit: also, given that 2/3rd of the 12k figure they give is an estimate I'd say that it really doesn't have to be 1k+/month.

It said somewhere on their website that students do have to live on campus.

And really, the health insurance for example will most likely be higher for me because I really want some coverage that probably isn't "standard".

Nah.. its a big caramel bubble of loveliness. *shrugs* I've just cast it without saying anything, and no-one ran away like they apparently have with lightwell for some of you...

If the raid are confused tell them its like the 2nd phase of Malygos. When it changes to the -30% damage version, then I'll want people to know what it is.

I've seen the confusion, yeah. I've been in the situation twice yesterday on beta where there were three players spread out just far enough from eachother that I couldn't cover them with one PW:B. I ended up throwing the barrier right in the middle between all of them, figuring they'd be smart enough to move in. One guy pretty much ran away from it, the tank moved in after ~3 seconds of suspicious looking and the last DPS just kept standing on the edge of it until it was gone. To be fair, that guy was a total moron.

There's never been a healing class available to gnomes, so I've always had it in my head that gnomes can't heal. Gnome priest - it sounds wrong. 5% mana is a very nice racial tho, has anyone been tempted to go gnome?

So, I'm leaving my guild I've been in all through Wrath this weekend, transferring servers, and switching from Horde to Alliance. I just can't decide what race. I hate the way Worgen cast and run, so they're out. The +5% mana from Gnome sounds sexy, but I don't think I could stand having an urge to kick my character every time I saw it. Right now it's pretty much a toss up among the others.

I'll miss Arcane Torrent, playing a Blood Elf, and my guild most of all.

Oh well, the server I'm leaving (Echo Isles) is dead and progression-less. I'm looking forward to moving to Proudmoore with a few real life friends into a new raiding guild. I just wish my friends in my current guild could come too.

If not worgen or gnome, looking at stuff like racials, humans win. Extra spirit, handy racial spell like the PvP medallion trinket, plus bonus of faster rep gain for less grinding!

I'm Draenei. I get an extra heal I almost never use. Bonus hit, umm... useful for smite perhaps. But too attached to ever change.

Dwarf racials not so great, but you could choose to have spinning buns when casting resurrection!

Night elves, worship Elune, not the light. Shadowmeld spell can be useful in PvP.
