This last week/weekend has been a lot of fun. The weekend kinda started early for me, because my dear sweet bigbadwolfcub
took a couple of days off for his birthday. I'm hoping it was the best birthday he's had. He seemed a little less stressy and grumpy about adding another number on this time around. (He isn't *happy* about it, but the birthday itself was fun, and started for him in the best way. ^_^) dragonnette
came up from Tucson to spend a couple of days with us, and that was great fun. Then again, she's just an amazing person like that.bigbadwolfcub
and I got to play a lot of WoW together, and that's always fun. I got my healing ring from the Headless Horseman, and I'm just plain getting better at shaman healing again. Yay. I got my priest up to 56, too. Yayness.
Yesterday was fun. My mom *didn't* make a huge fuss about M's birthday, and that was a very good thing. (My mom tries, but sometimes she can just go annoyingly overboard on things.) In the afternoon, I got to meet silentrequiem
. Wow, she's pretty. And smart. And very, very patient. hehe Either that, or the jet lag was making her too tired to run screaming at the insanity that is my family. ^_~ Anakin wasn't on his best behavior, but he wasn't a monster at least. It was a fun afternoon. I just wish I hadn't been so drained, on top of my usual social awkwardness.
We got home, did the usual family stuff, hung around to enjoy our last evening of M's vacation, and to my surprise he decided to make an RP character on WoW to help me out with Grrgrawr! (Grr is an orc hunter who used to be the Beast from UBRS. Our guild is based on a "silly" premise that has turned amazing and opened up some great RP moments. We've also got players who are made of complete awesome and win.) So, he's playing a blood elf paladin, and is already up to level 12. I'm impressed with his RPing. Last night was a lot of fun, when he paused to interact with everyone.
Also, while he was leveling Silvermane, a few of us did Scarlet Monestary, they gave Grr a blue bow they picked up in Gnomer, and we all around had a great time. When there were just a few of us left, we hopped on our lowbie belfs and sat around telling ghost stories. Oh! Before that, I won my first duel against an opponent of the same level! Yay! Okay, he was *naked* at the time...but I still won. lol I suck at duels, I really do. I started the duel *walking*! Let me tell you, frost nova doesn't do you any good if you're trying to leisurely walk away from your frozen opponent! justdbear
is nice, though, and said I did a good job at it at least. lol Maybe I'll try the whole duel thing out, as long as it's with people who won't go around gloating that they beat me in all my suckness. ^_^
And...that's about it. Today I'm cleaning. I worked on Grr's leatherworking a little, and Ahri's enchanting. Grr is broke again. ~pout~ Um...yeah. Sorry that cleaning is so boring I'm talking about WoW more!
Oh! I have four ideas for NaNo, and no clue which one I'll actually start writing on the first. 2000 words a day, or no WoW for me! It's going to be an interesting month. lol
